A Heavenly Pantheon

A Heavenly Pantheon – Pastor Chris

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4).

The Apostle Peter in our theme verse tells us we’re partakers of the divine nature. The Greek term is “theias-phuseos,” which really means “God-kind.” Being born again, you’ve been brought into fellowship or oneness with the God-kind; it’s a heavenly pantheon.

It reminds of something in the Greek mythology. The Greek pantheon referred to a collection of all their gods headed by Zeus, the chief god. Our theme scripture shows a greater pantheon headed by Jesus, and we’re in that league, meaning that we’re in a fraternity of divinity; a communion of the God-kind. So, we have a language, an esoteric communication, different from the one the world understands. No wonder the Bible says we speak wisdom among them that are perfect (1 Corinthians 2:6).

This is so powerful! Meditate on this and it’ll lift your vision. Suddenly, you’d realize that indeed, you own this world. You’re more than a conqueror. All things are subject to you, because you’re an associate of the God-kind. This is Christianity: that God would bring man into union with Himself! You’ve been born into God’s class. This is God’s dream for you, not when you get to heaven, but in the now! It’s something He already made possible and available in Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” This is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ has made us. You’ve been brought into the unity of spirits with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; it’s a fraternity of the God-kind!

CONFESSION

I belong in the fraternity of the God-kind, having been born into God’s class, with His divine life in my spirit. I’m indestructible, impregnable, and always victorious. I’ve been translated from the ordinary realm of mankind to the supernatural class of the God-kind. Hallelujah!
