And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell (Colossians 1:17-19).

According to the Scriptures, the totality of Divinity is completely resident in Jesus Christ. Everything about God dwells in Jesus. When Philip, one of His disciples, said to Him, “Show us the Father,” He replied, “Anyone who has seen me, has seen the Father” (John 14:8-9). Everything the Father is and has is in Jesus.

Everything the Holy Spirit is and has is in Jesus. Jesus Christ is Deity. He said, “ …I am in the Father, and the Father is in me” (John 14:11). Then in John 10:30, He said, “I and my Father are one .” Some people say, “Well, Jesus isn’t God”; that’s because they’re ignorant. Colossians 2:9 says, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” That means Jesus is the body of God.

When Jesus walked the streets in Bible days, it was God walking in Jesus. What an amazing reality. Hebrews 1:3 says He’s the brightness of God’s glory, and the express image of His person. Jesus is the outshining of the Father’s glory. He’s the “out-ray” of God’s light.

Did you notice that the word, “person” in Hebrews 1:3 isn’t in plural? It says, “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person ….” Which means in the Godhead, Jesus Christ is the one who expresses the personality of the Father. The Father never leaves the throne; He’s always on His throne, but expresses Himself through Jesus. No wonder He said, “He who has seen me, has seen the Father” (John 14:9).

CONFESSION

Blessed be God! Christ, who is the effulgence of God’s glory, and the expression of the Father, lives in me. Therefore, I’m the expression of the supernatural abilities, power, victories, and glories of Christ, because as He is, so am I! I’m full of God, filled with His might, and functioning by His power and glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
