John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Jesus is discussing about His soon to come confrontation with Satan through the hands of Judah, and his subsequent arrest and crucifixion.
In all certainty, the words of Jesus are more emphatic in the Greek.
In His own words He says, “The prince of the cosmos comes, and it is impossible for him to have even have the tiniest connection with me.”
Christianity is not about our asking for things or blessings. We have been deceived to think that our lives must be spent in asking God for a ton of things!
Col 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
All of our victories are resident, and treasured up, in the Person of Christ living within us. The more that this person within us is revealed, through our Holy Spirit obedience, and the work of the cross, the more that we enter into all of the victories and blessings deposited in His very being, and attainable to us through His revelation within our spirits.
In other words, the more that Christ is revealed, the more that all the treasures inside His person are revealed alongside with Him, in and to you.
The church has neglected this principle. Her relevancy in the world is waning and will continue to, until she comes back her to main function, which is to reveal the Person of Christ.
God has no other human instrument than the church to reveal Him.
Getting back to the scripture.
Are you moving towards renewal with Christ and losing all connections with the demonic, and sin? .
This is essential if you will be effective for Christ.
We must move to the point in which we can say, “for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
