The supreme struggle in the renewal of the Christian’s mind, and yet the most important point for breakthrough to occur, is that of “becoming.”
Christian transformation allows us get from God’s invisible inheritance and make it accessible and real in our earthly life.
What does it mean “to become”?
Webster’s Dictionary tells us:
“To pass from one state to another; to enter into some state or condition, by a change from another state, or by assuming or receiving new properties or qualities, additional matter, or a new character.
Then there are definitions from the Word Net Search Dictionary.
To enter or assume a certain state or condition.
To turn into something else.
Undergo a transformation or a change of position or action
Take on a specific property or attribute.
Cause to change or turn into something different; assume new characteristics
To undergo a change or development.
To come into existence.
The Christian has ALREADY BECOME many things that she was not before salvation. The challenge in Christian transformation is to “become” what The Word tells us that we already are. There needs to be revelation and then reckoning.
What is reckoning?
God’s method of access from His invisible kingdom is called “reckoning.’
This is the Strong’s Word # 3049, logizomai.
“Logizomai” is defined as reckoning, counting, crediting, inheriting, or depositing something to ourselves.
If we have $ 20.00 and we “logizomai” an additional $20.00, we now have $40.00.
Because faith is a universal law, it always functions. The person always “logizomai,’ whether he know it or not. If he has a negative faith and credits negative things, he will get negative results.
The Bible is our manual teaching us how to, and what to, logizomai.
Ro 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted <3049> for righteousness.
Ro 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth <3049> righteousness without works,
Ro 4:9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned <3049> to Abraham for righteousness.
Ro 4:11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed <3049> unto them also:
The reckoning must continue until our earthly life demonstrates what the Lord says that we are authentically. When we have become what we truly are, we will be found living in resurrection power. The Lord’s resurrection is established as an upstanding of what was dead or fallen down. Resurrection life is the knowledge of existing in the ability of the power of God. Every area of our live is included. Nothing is fallen down or dead.
Here are things that have already become. The challenge to reckon them and live in their actuality, authenticity, and reality, is ours, and not the Lord’s.
I tell you once again; this is the crux of the renewal of the mind.
