"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Me" (John 12:32).
Another way we can look His words is this: "If I be lifted up, magnified and exalted to a place of consciousness in your heart, I will draw all men unto Me."
The convictions you hold about God and yourself in Christ directly determine what you display in life. You must sanction your consciousness to rise upon Christ until He becomes tangibly touchable or real within you. It is Christ in us that gives our spirits the ability to discern and consciously feel, see, hear and become a spirit that speaks for Him. For no one can serve two masters; he or she will love the One (Christ) and despise the other. When we are aware of our right state of being (in Christ) and believe it to be truth (the spirit of truth) we will manifest that reality (Christ consciousness).
DWELLING IN CHRIST "In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you" (John 14:2).
The mansion to which He referred is not just a future place of residency in Heaven for us to inhabit after we shed our earthly bodies. It is where Christ is – in a higher state of spiritual existence and being. It is incredible that we can dwell there too.
Learning to dwell in the active, life-giving power of "Christ consciousness" causes us to discover and advance in God's calling on our life. God's wisdom freely flows from eternity, reaching into the temporal realm of time, to bring about and display His divine perspectives.
Prayer, dreams and visions open the window of revelation that is from another future realm of time, which allows us to reach inside eternity to retrieve godly wisdom.
Being acutely aware of Christ in us makes all things possible. "You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and the light [of God's favor] will shine upon your ways" (Job 22:28).
