Hi Jim I thank God for your insight in to His word .It is like life jumping out of the page into my spirit.I have look at many of your teaching and they have open my eyes to the truth about who we are in Christ. Love your brother in Christ Dan

Hello Dan! :)

It is exciting to know that you are finding the life of Christ within the words I have written!! That definitely testifies to the fact that everything is of HIM!! Knowing who you really are is an amazing truth to be confident in.

P.S. What do you think Paul meant when he said Col. 1:20 that God is reconciling all things back to Himself.

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. Colossians 1:16-20

Actually it is saying that all things HAVE been reconciled to God through Christ. The old has been put to death in Christ, and in Christ the new has already come. We watch the old still in the process of decay, it is passing away before our eyes. The thing we see is not the reality, for the reality is unseen by human eyes. But we have been given new eyes and are having them made aware of this life that seems to hide behind the curtain. But this new world is not like the old world because there is no antagonism between itself and the creator. Why? Because Christ made peace!!

Jim :)
