Heaven’s Ascent

October 8, 2012

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, 4in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.

Heaven’s Ascent

My spirit lays hold,
the hand of God in Christ.
Though earthly bands restrain,
my heavenly enterprise.
“Don’t let go,” He speaks,
“As I loose the bands of natural law.
Look upon My presence ,
in wonder and in awe.
See that for liberty,
Christ has set you free.
Earthen self has died with Christ,
there on the cross of Calvary.
You, though buried in sin,
have been risen with Christ again.
You have resurrected in His life,
Your spirit to ascend.
Now My Spirit in yours,
Now identified with Me.
The law of the Spirit of Life,
Has come in to set you free.”

“Though you may feel at times,
through your body that earthly pull.
I am the Lord that sits on the throne,
You now live in My power and rule.
You reign on high with Me,
in Christ your king,
From that position in heaven,
His authority you bring,
To have authority over that former man,
To live in Christ and carry forth His plan.
By His grace, a new creation be,
To bring to creation His liberty.
You are a son through that second birth;
Heaven born, now acknowledge your worth.
Be in Christ, who you are called to be,
A royal priesthood born to set men free.”
