Eph 2:5,6 '.....made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus'
On our own we cannot escape sin & death, but when we become joined with Christ, Him in us & us in Him (John 15), we come alive! After coming alive, God raises us in every area. What happens in our spiritual life inevitably manifests in our natural world. We rise above everything that tries to defeat us, when we are joined to Christ. It is imperative we 'unjoin' ourselves from those things that separate us from Christ & that we immerse ourselves in those things that keep us joined to Christ (prayer, Bible, church, serving). Christ is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. We are seated with Him, far above every demon, devil & force trying to attack us. We are only ALIVE, RAISED & SEATED by virtue of the fact that Jesus is ALIVE, RAISED & SEATED. Apart from Him, we remain dead in our sins. Joined with Him we are ALIVE eternally!
