  1. I enjoyed seeing more of what it means for Christ to be called Christ: We can be in Christ but it is not so accurate to say that we are in Jesus because in resurrection Jesus is the Christ. Today the Lord Jesus Christ is in resurrection, He is also in the highest heavens and in our human spirit! “After He was crucified and resurrected and had become the Spirit, we could be in Him” “The Church in Christ is the church in resurrection, in authority, and on the throne.”

  2. Halleluja, Christ in resurrection is the breath, the pneuma,the Spirit!
    After the believers received Him as the holy pneuma, He began to live in
    them.
    Where is Christ today? The answer is that Christ is on the throne in heaven
    and also living in us.

  3. In Christ, all the riches of resurrection are ours.
    In Christ we are rich to the uttermost!

    Where are we? We are in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    The name Jesus implies that everything we are in the old creation and in the fall has been terminated,
    and the title Christ implies that we are no longer in ourselves, in the old creation, in sin and death, in the world, and in Satan.
    Instead, we are in resurrection, in the Spirit, and in righteousness, holiness, power, strength, and might.

    Because we are in Christ, we are even on the throne with Him.

    Oh, how marvelous it is to be in Christ!

  4. We need to see the significance of being in Christ! When we are in Christ we are on the throne and not only are we in power, might, strength, and authority, but we are also on the throne!! “Satan, don’t you see where I am? I am in Christ on the throne!!!!” Praise the Lord!!!

  5. The church is in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. The title Christ in 1 Thessalonians 1:1 denotes all the riches of resurrection. If the Lord were only Jesus and not Christ, we could not be in Him. But because He is the Lord Jesus Christ, we can be in Him and we are in Him right now. Where are we? We are in the Lord Jesus Christ. The name Jesus implies that everything we are in the old creation and in the fall has been terminated, and the title Christ implies that we are no longer in ourselves, in the old creation, in sin and death, in the world, and in Satan. Instead, we are in resurrection, in the Spirit, and in righteousness, holiness, power, strength, and might. Because we are in Christ, we are even on the throne with Him. Oh, how marvelous it is to be in Christ.

    Hallelujah we are in the the LORD JESUS CHRIST, Lord strengthen all the saints to enjoy being in You. Thank You Lord for accomplishing everything for us. We love You Lord Jesus.

    1. Amen, I felt the same!! When I read message 9 and at the part talks about where we are today, the light comes in. I think that I never really appreciated the fact that I am in Christ. This chapter opens up my eyes to see how precious that I am in Christ today.

      “…Therefore, we need to be impressed with the fact that to be in Christ is to be in resurrection, in the Spirit, in power, and on the throne. The church in Christ is the church in resurrection, in authority, and on the throne.”

      Praise the Lord that we are in Christ today!!

  6. I am in Christ on the throne!

    I enjoyed pray reading this sentence. What a glorious fact this is!

    “We also have received the Lord Jesus Christ as the holy breath, the holy pneuma, the life-giving Spirit, and now He is actually in us…

    Where is Christ today? The answer is that Christ is on the throne in heaven and also living in us. Oh, we should be able to declare with a strong release of the spirit that Christ is in us. Our Christ today is the One who lives in us! …we have both the Christ in heaven and the Christ who dwells in our spirit.”

  7. There is a group of people in Christ and on the throne. This is an amazing fact. Our only problem is that we hardly see what we have and are. Praise our Lord for the ministry that unveils us.

  8. Brother Lee was slandered, condemned and falsely accused of preaching another Christ. He preached the Christ revealed in the Bible. However, many Christians do not believe in the Christ revealed in the Word. Their Christ may be only in heaven and are waiting to die to meet Him one day! The Christ revealed in the Word is the Lord Jesus Christ! Brother Lee said; “When the Lord was Jesus in the flesh, no one could be in Him. But after He was crucified and resurrected and had become the Spirit, we could be in Him.” The One who in John 14:18 said “I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you.” Yes, His coming was in another form, the Spirit! So He can be IN us! In our human spirit!

    When we call “O Lord Jesus” why does He answer us so quickly if He is merely in Heaven? He answers us so quickly because He is right inside of us!

    Praise the Lord for this Resurrection Life; day by day we are growing in this Resurrection Life regardless of our feelings.

    I liked this paragraph; “We also have received the Lord Jesus Christ as the holy breath, the holy pneuma, the life-giving Spirit, and now He is actually in us. I believe that if we have a proper realization of Christ in us, we shall be very excited, even beside ourselves with joy. The fact that we may not be at all excited about this may indicate that we do not realize that Christ is in us.” Hallelujah Christ is in us! 🙂

  9. I really loved this message, it just gets better and better! How wonderful is it, that everything we gain in these messages will NEVER be lost!
    “I believe that if we have a proper realization of Christ in us, we shall be very excited, even beside ourselves with joy.” This is so wonderful! May we all have this proper realization, so we can all be beside ourselves with joy!
    “Satan, don’t you see where I am? I am in Christ on the throne!” That’s where we are saints! Can you believe we are in the best place to be in the whole universe? This is so wonderful

  10. CHRIST ON THE THRONE AND IN US.

    Dear saints, the Christ in whom many of today’s Christians believe is far away in the 3rd heaven. Yet the Lord Christ is not only in the 3rd heaven on the throne, He also has entered into our spirit!! In John 14 the Lord promised not to leave the disciples as orphans, for He was coming to them again for sure. Saints, we are not orphans on earth waiting for the Lord to come again.. we have this pneumatic & resurrected Christ who cameinto our spirit today! We should all enjoy the Lord today in our spirit and declare w/ a strong release of spirit that Christ is in the innermost part of our being!! Stand on the Lord’s word in John 20:22 & 1 Thes. 1:1!

  11. Amen! Praise the Lord! I enjoyed that Christ is no longer only in the heavens. CHRIST IS NOW IN US!!! Praise the Lord that He is now the life-giving Spirit! When we call upon Him, He responds so quickly! That’s because He is in us and He is in resurrection! There is a difference between the title Jesus and Christ. Jesus refers to His experiences before resurrection and Christ refers to His experiences, position and life after His resurrection! We are in Christ! To be in Christ is to be in the resurrection life! Also we are in Christ who is on the throne! We are out of the old creation, Satan and every negative things! Praise the Lord that we are in Him!

  12. I was very busy today. I am thankful the Lord that I could read this chapter before midnight.

    What a rich portion! Tooo much to share…!

    Today maybe only two things…

    “I believe that if we have a proper realization of Christ in us, we shall be very excited, even beside ourselves with joy.”
    HAAAAALELUJAH!!!

    and “Not only are you in power, might, strength, and authority, but you are also on the throne. After His resurrection Christ went to the heavens to be enthroned, and in Him we also are on the throne. Sometimes we need to say to Satan, “Satan, don’t you see where I am? I am in Christ on the throne!”
    THAT’S RIGHT! PRAAAAISE THE LORD!

    1. Hallelujah!! It’s 11:42pm and I am now just able to finish and post. How wonderful this message is! I enjoyed this same portion very much! We are on the throne in Christ!! Hallelujah!!

  13. “It is indeed a tragedy that, under the influence of religion, so many Christians have been distracted from growing in resurrection life. Instead of paying attention to life and the growth of life, they pursue knowledge and try to improve themselves. There is no need for us to endeavor to improve ourselves, for we are in resurrection life. This resurrection life is the resurrected Christ, and this Christ in resurrection is the life-giving Spirit. The church today is in Christ, the One who in His resurrection has become the all-inclusive life-giving Spirit. “

  14. Praise the Lord, for the ministry, to know the reason why we say ‘Praise the Lord’, and that ‘Jesus’ is suitable before resurrection only! In death ‘Jesus’ became the ‘Christ’, who terminated all negative things for us.
    In the church-life everything is about the resurection-life! Even just to call on His name! Then we are brought into resurection with Him! Praise the Lord, that terminates death and brings in resurection life. Thats why we say; ‘Praise the Lord!’ By this we praise the all-inclusive Christ!

    In resurrection Jesus is the Christ. Hallelujah, His crucifixion is still effective! Praise Him that He has been resurrected and that in resurrection He has become the Christ. Now as believers we are in Christ; we have entered into an organic union with Him.

    We are not only in Him, in His death, but allso in His resurrection AND also in His assension, AND on the Throne of God with Him, BUT He is also in us!

    Some Christian teachers speak of being in Jesus. This expression is not accurate. We can be in Christ, but we cannot be in Jesus. When the Lord was Jesus in the flesh, no one could be in Him. But after He was crucified and resurrected and had become the Spirit, we could be in Him. By the Spirit, with the Spirit, through the Spirit, and in the Spirit, we can be in Christ. Christ is the heavenly, spiritual air, and we are now in Him.

  15. The burden of this message is to know what it means for the church to be in Christ.

    To be in Jesus is that we are in old creation has been terminated. And to be in Christ means that we are in resurrection, in the Spirit, and even on the throne with Him !

    May the Lord enlighten us to see this!

  16. How marvelous and wonderful! Christ in His resurrection is our breath! Hallelujah! He is not only breath to us but He is IN us! Christ today is in us. Wherever we are, whatever we’re doing we have Christ living and dwelling in us! Thank you Lord, that you are not just Jesus but you are the Lord Jesus Christ who went through a process to be the live-giving Spirit that can live and dwell in our spirit!

  17. Whoa, can you believe this? “To be in Christ is to be in resurrection, in the Spirit, in power, in strength, and in authority. ” As Christ went to the heavens to be enthroned, in Him we also are on the throne! “Satan, don’t you see where I am? I am in Christ on the throne!”

  18. The church is in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. The title CHRIST in 1 Thessalonians 1:1 denotes all the riches of resurrection. If the Lord were only Jesus and not Christ, we could not be in Him. But because He is the LORD JESUS CHRIST, we can be in Him and we are in Him right now. Where are we? We are in the Lord Jesus Christ. The name Jesus implies that everything we are in the old creation and in the fall has been terminated, and the title Christ implies that we are no longer in ourselves, in the old creation, in sin and death, in the world, and in Satan. Instead, we are in resurrection, in the Spirit, and in righteousness, holiness, power, strength, and might. Because we are in Christ, we are even on the throne with Him. Oh, how marvelous it is to be IN CHRIST!

  19. In this message, I enjoyed the matter that Christ is now in our spirit! In fact, we should be beside ourselves with joy when we realize this fact. Lord, deepen our appreciation of You as the indwelling resurrected Christ!

  20. By the Spirit, with the Spirit, through the Spirit, and in the Spirit, we can be in Christ. Christ is the heavenly, spiritual air, and we are now in Him.

  21. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!!

    Thank you Lord! Thank you for the Ministry. Thanks a lot for many faithful brothers and sister!!

    As I have read Life-study of 1 Thes. with the Saints, the more realization and appreciation of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ I’ve had. Until Msg9 there have been wonderful fellowship on the status for the church in Thessalonians. Those belong to the Triune God, who is not related with raw God that so many Christians know improperly. The church absolutely came from the plan of God the Father and the accomplishment of the Son, and application of the Spirit! What a wonderful revelation and dispensing to the church from the processed Triune God.
    Today I was much impressed with the Christ who became the Spirit and breath in resurrection! He became the pneumatic Christ just like the air. So whenever we call on His name, He comes to us as the life-giving Spirit according to His promise. Therefore it’s very very important to call on His name in our daily life with exercising our spirit! Hallelujah ~~ At the moment we’re in Christ with the practical way, we can be in resurrection, power, strength, might, even in authority! Amen ~~ Hallelujah!

  22. The Christ in whom many of today’s Christians believe is a Christ far away in the third heaven. But our Christ is not only the resurrected and ascended Christ in heaven; He is also the One who has descended and entered into our spirit. Hallelujah, Christ is now in our spirit!

  23. Its all about realizing , now we realize who we are. The Lord Jesus said ;” Who do you say that I am ”, now we have the answer to what we are in Christ.
    The golden years have started in the comprehension with all the saints what are the dimensions of the marvelous reality in which we are brought. Tts a fact that God is made compatible to us and we are made compatible to Him, to live a holy and glorious life as the Church by the application of the life-giving, sanctifying Spirit. Hallelujah !

  24. Praise the Lord for the Father’s plan, the Son’s accomplishment, and the Spirit flow of life. Hallelujah our Christ today is on the throne and also living in our spirit!

  25. Where is Christ today? Christ is on the throne in heaven and also living in us.
    Today for our experience we have the Lord Jesus Christ as the Spirit. The moment we begin to call on His name, He comes to us from within us. This is Christ in resurrection.

  26. What does it mean to be in Christ?

    “We need to be impressed with the fact that to be in Christ is to be in resurrection, in the Spirit, in power, and on the throne. The church in Christ is the church in resurrection, in authority, and on the throne.”

    Amen! Praise the Lord!
