Where CHRIST lives

 

Colossians 1:16-17

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, 

and that are in earth, 

visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, 

or dominions, 

or principalities, 

or powers: 

all things were created by him, 

and for him:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.


Where can JESUS be found?

Where does He live?

Where did He come from?

In His own words, here's where He is:

Matthew 18:20

King James Version

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, 

there am I in the midst of them.


John 8:23

King James Version

23 And he said unto them, 

Ye are from beneath; 

I am from above: 

ye are of this world; 

I am not of this world.


John 3:31-33

King James Version

31 He that cometh from above is above all

he that is of the earth is earthly, 

and speaketh of the earth: 

he that cometh from heaven is above all.

32 And what he hath seen and heard, 

that he testifieth; 

and no man receiveth his testimony.

33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal 

that God is true.


John 8:42

King James Version

42 Jesus said unto them, 

If God were your Father, 

ye would love me: 

for I proceeded forth and came from God

neither came I of myself, 

but he sent me.


John 8:58

King James Version

58 Jesus said unto them, 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

Before Abraham was, I am.


John 17:8

King James Version

8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; 

and they have received them, 

and have known surely that I came out from thee

and they have believed that thou didst send me.


Revelation 3:21

King James Version

21 To him that overcometh 

will I grant to sit with me in my throne, 

even as I also overcame, 

and am set down with my Father in his throne.


The Bible says this:

Philippians 3:20

King James Version

20 For our conversation is in heaven; 

from whence also we look for the Saviour, 

the Lord Jesus Christ:


Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


Hebrews 12:2

King James Version

2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; 

who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, 

despising the shame, 

and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.


CHRIST lives in believers:

Galatians 2:20

King James Version

20 I am crucified with Christ: 

nevertheless I live; 

yet not I, 

but Christ liveth in me

and the life which I now live in the flesh 

I live by the faith of the Son of God, 

who loved me, 

and gave himself for me.


Romans 8:10

King James Version

10 And if Christ be in you, 

the body is dead because of sin; 

but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.


In summary, here are the KEY WORDS:

-- where two or three are gathered together in my name, 

there am I in the midst of them

-- I am from above: 

-- I am not of this world.

-- He that cometh from above is above all

-- He that cometh from above is above all: 

-- he that cometh from heaven is above all

-- I proceeded forth and came from God; 

-- and have known surely that I came out from thee (came from GOD)

-- am set down with my Father in his throne

-- in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, 

the Lord Jesus Christ:

-- seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God

-- and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God

-- Christ liveth in me
