Rule from the Throne of Christ

Robert Rajamani 

..how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! — Romans 5:17 

The life we have been gifted with, is within our sphere of authority. Challenging situations we face in our life is subject to our dominion. We are called to rule and enforce authority over the domain of our life. We also have an enemy who will come against us and challenge our authority over our domain.  

God has a unique way for us to rule and keep our life under submission. He does not want us to be in a struggle to fight the enemy on equal ground. The devil is no match for the authority of Christ. We are to be seated on the throne of Christ and rule from there. When we rest on the throne of Christ and rule with Him, we are, in reality allowing Him to rule in and through us. When we rule from His throne, He rules. He can rule in our domain only when we remain seated on His throne and abide in Him and rest in Him. As long as we are seated, His authority is in force. 

When His children are ignorant of their identity and their position in Christ, the Kingdom suffers. Every time we panic looking at a situation and get off the throne and strive to fight it, we lose our perspective and authority. We have no power in our self to handle the situations the enemy will bring, we are powerful only when we remain on the throne with Christ and rule with His Authority and Power. 

Jesus by enduring the cross and conquering Death has established a throne worthy for the Son. He is the only one worthy to be seated on that throne but He has willingly called us into that position of Sonship with Him to enjoy His privileges as a Son of God. We rule by Him and in turn He rules in us and the Kingdom of God grows. 

God has established the throne of His Son in Zion (Psalm 2:6). His rulership extends out from Zion and its domain is expanding one person at a time. As we yield to Him and sit with Him on the throne and rule, He rules and His Kingdom grows. He wants His children to take their position of authority. Every victory we take is a victory for Christ. Every mountain we conquer is a conquest for Christ. Not the victories we win by our own ability, but the ones we win by abiding on the throne of Christ and allowing His authority to flow. They are our inheritance in Christ. 

Be seated on the throne with Christ and abide in Him and let Him rule in our life. Let His authority flow through us and have dominion over our life. We are a joint-heir with Him (Romans 8:17). Let us become one with Him and have the mind of Christ and have access to His Wisdom. He reveals the mysteries of His Kingdom only to His children by the Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:10) 

Take your seat on His throne and rule by His Authority and Power and keep the enemy of your life in submission.

Why Sabbath Rest is so Important to God?

Robert Rajamani

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;  ..Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest.  — Hebrews 4:9,11

In the beginning after completing the creation, God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and rested on the seventh day. God did not rest because He was tired of work. He rested because He was at Peace. He had created His children and provided a perfect garden for them to live in. They were safe and in perfect union with Him. He had a perfect family. He was at Rest – the Sabbath Rest.

God desired that Adam and Eve will remain in this state of unbroken relationship with Him and enjoy the Sabbath Rest with Him. He wanted them to be in this loving relationship with the Father as a family of God. As long as they were in fellowship with God, they had access to His provision and Life and were at Rest. Their heart was designed to find rest only in Him and so had He chosen to find His rest in His children.

But, Man decided to get out of this relationship and find his own rest outside God, which he soon realized does not exist. Since that day man has only experienced turmoil and fear. Along with man even God has been restless since. He could not be at Peace when His children were lost. Since that day, God has been striving continuously to restore His family and bring them back to His Sabbath Rest. Jesus referred to this and said, “My Father is always at His work to this very day” when He was questioned about healing on Sabbath. (John 5:16-17)

To emphasize the importance of finding Rest in their relationship with God, He commanded the Israelites to honor the Sabbath day. He asked them to rest from their work of the flesh and focus on fellowshipping with the Lord in Worship and Thanksgiving. Experiencing one day of Sabbath in a week was just a shadow and foretaste of the Eternal Sabbath they were going to enter into in Jesus. God made every effort through Joshua to lead the Israelites to the Canaan land to enter His rest, but they could not because of their unbelief (Hebrews 3:19)

Ultimately, God paid a huge price in Christ to restore this Sabbath Rest for his family. He desires that we enter His Sabbath rest in Christ. Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28). As we come to Christ and abide in Him and are led by His Spirit, we enter His Rest and experience His Peace.

The Father’s Heart cannot rest until we enter His Rest. He wants His family back, the family He lost in the Garden of Eden. . He is at Peace only after our relationship with Him is restored and we have entered His Sabbath Rest and are secure in Christ. So, let us make every effort today to Enter His Rest. (Hebrews 4:11)

Do not be driven by your Passion for God, but be led by Him

Robert Rajamani

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. – Zechariah 4:6

It is very much possible to be driven by a passion. For a believer, it will mostly be a passion which is godly. Some may have a passion to do the work of the Lord, become a missionary etc. It is very easy and convenient to be driven by the passion and convince oneself what we are doing is the will of the Lord, because passion for something gives purpose to life and can be a great motivation.

Christian life is not to be lived by clinging on to certain apparent godly things which gives a purpose to life and run with it. Christian life is meant to be led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14), in continuous relationship with Him and continuously hearing from Him.

It is very much possible to be driven by a Passion for the things of God and miss God. Paul was passionate for God, but he missed God when he persecuted the church. He was not in personal relationship with God, but with his religion of God. But once he got into a relationship with God, he was led by the Spirit of God.

God wants us to have a Father-child relationship in which we are in constant communication with Him in every step of our way. He is not looking for someone who hears from God and gets passionate about it and runs with it leaving God behind. Rather learn to be with Him, talk to Him all the time. Make it a lifestyle to just hang out with Him and let Him reveal you things and speak to you and guide you every step of the way. (Psalm 32:8)

Let the Holy Spirit be your guide. Talk to Him and develop an intimate relationship with Him. One Word that you hear from Him personally, can change your life upside down. Just as Jesus said, “ Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God”. (Matthew 4:4)

Vessel of God

Robert Rajamani

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. – 2 Corinthians 4:7

The Lord is looking for vessels which can contain His Presence and His Glory. A vessel in which He can make His dwelling. The Spirit of the Lord is in the process of preparing a vessel for God. He is looking for a willing heart which will yield to the sanctification process.

Any effort of the flesh to meet the standards of God is something He abhors. He said, flesh cannot glory in His presence (1 Corinthians 1:29). He is the one who makes us a worthy vessel. Human efforts and work of the flesh will only break the vessel in pride and self-glory. He is the Potter who makes us worthy. The only thing He expects from us is our willingness to abide in Him; no matter what He takes us through to make us worthy unto Him.

We are not inanimate clay vessels with no will of our own. On the contrary, we are living vessels with a will and freedom to choose. We can choose to remain on the Potter’s wheel when He spins us or we can get off the wheel and keep our carnal self in shape. But when we choose to remain on the wheel even when it does not make sense to our carnal mind and trust in Him to shape us according to his purpose, that’s when we are transformed in to a worthy vessel. Worthy for His Kingdom. He makes us worthy, not us. Any human effort to make us worthy will only deform the vessel.

Remain in Him as He takes us through the process of sanctification; from the spinning wheel to the furnace of fire and to perfection. He will make us worthy.

Rise High with The Spirit of God

Robert Rajamani

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. –Galatians 5:25

God wants His children to fly high in the Spirit. He has always wanted them to come up higher. He called Moses to separate himself and come up to a high mountain to meet Him (Exodus 24:12). God called Abraham to separate from his family and come up to God to see His plan for him (Genesis 12:1). God wants his people to rise above the flesh, above the ground and walk in the Spirit.

Man, in his fallen state has a tendency to gravitate towards the earth, toward the flesh. He prefers walking and running on the ground over flying. He is comfortable when he has solid support beneath. The flesh is comfortable being on the ground in the earth, it does not like flying, because it feels like its losing control. On the contrary, the spirit wants to fly above; soar with the Spirit of God (Galatians 5:17). It gravitates towards being led by the Spirit of God rather than being on the ground controlled by the flesh. Flesh is comfortable in the dust, spirit is comfortable soaring with God.

It is interesting to know that the snake which sneaked into the Garden of Eden and deceived Eve also lives in the ground. When you walk in the flesh and are earth-bound, you are treading on dangerous ground; where snakes lurk. When you soar high with the Spirit of God you are above the snake line, the devil has no control on you (Romans 8:13). God desires that you remain in cruising height and be always led by His Spirit.

Walking in the flesh is a dangerous place to be in, its where snakes live, its where the devil has his control and is very active. As a child of the Most High, walking in flesh is not an option. Walking in the Spirit is what He desires from us. Its where He can reveal His Wisdom and Mysteries to our heart. Its where Life flows. Its where we see and understand the Kingdom of God and reflect His glory.

Mind and the will of man is what controls whether you soar high in the Spirit of God or be grounded. Mind, if it is allowed to be controlled by the carnal nature will bring you down to the ground and make you feel comfortable there, but mind controlled by the Spirit of God and renewed by the Word of God will keep you comfortably flying (Romans 8:6). Renewing the mind with the Word and the realities of heaven will keep you afloat. Also, when you spend time with the Spirit of God and willingly yield to Him; He will carry you higher and reveal the realities of His Kingdom. You will operate on a higher dimension.

Enoch walked with God in the Spirit and was translated into God’s realm (Genesis 5:24). Abraham walked with God and was able to see the future Kingdom of God and gave up everything and lived like a nomad (Hebrews 11:8) Moses walked with God and gave up the Pharaoh’s Palace for the Kingdom of Christ (Hebrews 11:24-26). We are called to walk in the Spirit and resist walking in the flesh (Galatians 5:16)

Rise above the flesh, and cruise with the Spirit of God and keep the snake wallowing in the dust!

Be Anchored in God Alone

Robert Rajamani

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain – Hebrews 6:19

God has always desired that man will live by depending on Him alone as the source of Life and Wisdom. He desired that man will develop a deep relationship with Him and live life being led by His Spirit. He wanted man to be anchored on God. But in Adam, humans chose to be not anchored on God but rather depend on their ability to know between good and evil. Man chose to be anchored on himself and his understanding instead of God.

God’s Spirit continuously strives with man to train him to depend on Him alone. Depending on one’s own ability is like being in the middle of the ocean and depend on a floating log to save one’s life, it won’t last long. One needs a firm anchor, a ship – to save life. Life cannot be lived just by depending on our flesh and its ability to save us. We need Life Himself, we need to be anchored on God.

To be able to walk with God and function with Him, you need to be depending on His Spirit. He takes us through life and its circumstances to develop and strengthen this dependence on Him. He wants to make sure that we are strongly anchored only on Him. That is how He builds His kingdom through His people. We are the stones and pillars of His city and He wants us to be firmly founded on Him alone. (1 Peter 2:5)

As a part of this process, sometimes He allows a storm around us to fine tune our dependence on Him. Storm comes to destroy everything you had put your anchor on. With nothing left to depend on; you grow your anchor on Him as your only hope. He will shake everything that you anchor your soul on, until you anchor it only on Him. Once your peace is restored in the midst of the storm just by anchoring on Him, you are tuned to Him and you are firm and secure.

In Abraham’s life God promised him and then took him through a series of circumstances to break his dependence on himself. Abraham tried to birth God’s dreams by his own ability and in the attempt, gave birth to Ishmael. God had to take him through life and its storms until he realized that he had no strength in his flesh to birth anything, he had to anchor on God in Faith and trust in His ability to make the promise come true.

In Joseph’s life God promised him of a future, and then took him through a series of circumstances to develop dependence on Him. Joseph had to trust in God alone to fulfil His promise. Joseph was anchored on God.

In Moses’ life God chose him as the redeemer of the Israelites, but then took him through a long 40 years to break his dependence on his own ability and depend only on God. God taught Moses to be anchored on Him for the task ahead.

Jesus was anchored in the Father. He was one with Him. He said and did what His Father said and did. (John 5:19, John 10:30)

How to be anchored in Him? You develop your anchor in Him by spending time with Him in the Holy of Holies. Your born again spirit is the holy of holies where He dwells. He desires that you fellowship with Him in the Most Holy. Allow His Spirit to draw you to His presence more. Spend time in His Word. Yield to His Spirit and He will take you through things which will stitch your heart with Him. You will be hooked on to the realm of God and be anchored in Him.

He is Eternal; when you are anchored in Him you become eternal in Him and this passing world loses its grip on you. He is Life; when you are anchored in Him, you flow in His Life and overcome all manifestations of death. Be anchored in Him and His Word and overcome the world! (John 16:33, 1 John 2:14)

God Needs Your Will

Robert Rajamani

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” — Luke 22:42

God created man in His own image, He gave him a will to choose freely. Just like God, man now has the option to go and create his own world, fulfill his own desires and visions and build his own kingdom. Man has the option to go independent of God and follow his own will and make his own decisions or if he chooses; he can unite his will with the will of God and function in union with God.

God desires that man will willingly choose to submit his will to God’s and work in union with Him. Just like in any love relationship it will not work if two wills do not merge willingly; Love cannot be forced. God desires that man will willingly submit to His will, just like a son submits to His Father in trust. Just like Jesus said, “Not My Will But Thine Be Done”. (Luke 22:42)

God expected this from Adam and Eve, but they chose to not yield to the will of God and do their own will. Devil was just the means by which they were introduced to another option of being able to go independent of God and establish their own world and be their own God. They chose to deviate from the will of God and follow their own will. When your will is not in union with the will of God, there is no Life, because He is the source of Life. Without God as your source, all you have is your ability to understand good and evil and live based on your carnal understanding, you are disconnected from divine wisdom, you are at the mercy of your own ability to solve your problems. With no source of Life, you eventually wither and die. That’s the state of man today.

But God never gives up on Man. He is always looking for a human who will unite his will with God’s willingly, and in that union God’s plans will be birthed. He finds that man in Noah, who unites his own will with God’s and births a new plan for the earth and whole humanity. He finds Abraham who submits his will to the will of God to the point of giving up his beloved son. In that union of Abraham’s will with God’s, He births the eternal plan of His Kingdom in which, nations will be Blessed and Abraham becomes the Father of our Faith.

Later, He finds David, who submits his will to God’s and He declares him as a ‘Man after His own Heart’ (Acts 13:22) and He births the plan to establish the throne of David eternally in Christ. Then, He finds a woman named Mary, who willingly united her will to His and said, “Be it to me according to your word” and birthed the Messiah in flesh (Luke 1:38). Finally, Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane lamented, but said, “Not My Will But Thine Be Done” (Luke 22:42) and out of that submission of His own will to His Father’s is birthed the new Eternal Kingdom of God, and we the fallen sons and daughters of Adam, have been declared righteous and made worthy of His Eternal Kingdom (2 Corinthians 5:21) and Death is forever destroyed. (1 Corinthians 15:54)

Today, He is after our will. He desires that we choose His will over ours. He longs that we unite our will with His and be one with Him, just as Jesus said, I and my Father are one (John 10:30). Just like there is explosive power when two hearts willingly merge, fall in love and become one; there is power to give birth to His plan and dream when we submit our will to His and become one with Him.

When we understand the truth that we are the center of His world, His heart revolves around us and gravitates towards us, that He does everything good for His children and His will is always seeking our good, then it is easy to submit to His will and walk with Him and say “Thy will Be Done Not Mine”.

God’s Eternal Purpose

Robert Rajamani

…according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,

God’s perspective is from eternity. He has eternal purposes and plans. Whatever He does in our life and in this physical realm has eternal implications. He created Adam and Eve with an eternal plan to expand His Kingdom into the physical realm. He wanted to rule and have dominion through his children. He wanted Adam and Eve to rule as King and Queen. He is the King of Kings. His children are the Kings. He wanted to have His will done among His people so that they experience His Blessing. His will is a Kingdom of His Righteousness and Peace (Romans 14:17). Even though Adam missed the purpose of God, God did not fail. He accomplished something better in Jesus. Today we have a better position in Christ than we would have had in Adam.

God had an eternal purpose when He made a covenant with Abraham. He had a future Kingdom coming out of the seed of Abraham, not just the physical seed through Isaac, but his spiritual seed Jesus. (Galatians 3:16). Everything that Abraham went through in his life had eternal consequences. The period of testing he endured for his faith had an eternal purpose. Today and forever Abraham is the Father of our Faith.

God had an eternal purpose when He chose David and established his throne. God declared that the throne of David will remain forever (2 Samuel 7:16). His son, Jesus is seated on the throne of David and will rule forever. The phase in his life, when he endured trials before being seated on the throne, had an eternal purpose.

God had an eternal purpose when He allowed His own beloved Son to be sacrificed on the cross. He was establishing His Kingdom on the death of His Son. The event of crucifixion and resurrection brought eternal victory. God as a Father desired to include us in His Kingdom. He wanted to have a family which included us.

Today, when we go through situations in life, which looks contradictory to what we desire; situations which does not make sense; be assured that He has an eternal purpose behind it. Today, when we face trials and our faith is being tested; be assured that what we endure today for our Faith is not a small thing. It has its implications in eternity. Everything that we go through in our walk with Him is very precious to Him and it has eternal consequences. He is a potter with an eternal perspective, let us yield to Him to create as He desires. Let His will be done in our life.

Above everything, He is a Father at heart, everything He does come out of that Father-Heart, so we can be assured that He will allow only good things in our life, even if it looks bad. He is a master at making apparent bad things better than the good. In His heart, He has an eternal purpose for us. Let His will be done and have an eternal impact! (Luke 22:42)

God Wants to Dwell Among Us

Robert Rajamani

I will make My dwelling among you, and My soul will not reject nor separate itself from you. I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people – Leviticus 26:11-12

God has always wanted to dwell with His children. He longs to be with His own. Even though man rejected Him in the garden of Eden and went his own way of independence from God. God always pursued man and wanted to be with him.

God wanted to be with the Israelites. He wanted to dwell in their midst. He instructed them to have a tabernacle made where His Presence can dwell in their midst (Exodus 25:8). God did not want to dwell among them so that He can rule and control the Israelites. The reason He wanted to be with His people was because He knew that His people needed Him, even though they did not realize that. He knew His presence is what will give them victory and protection from the enemies they are going to face. He wanted to be with them to help them and show them the way. He cared for them.

The Israelites built the tabernacle, in which was the Most Holy Place. In the Holy of Holies the Presence of God dwelled.  For a Holy God do be able to dwell with His sinful people there had to be an animal sacrifice which covered their sin and the glory of God could remain among them. God made a way where there was no way. He made the way of animal sacrifice, so that He can dwell among His children.

God was not satisfied just by the tabernacle and the Holy of Holies of the tabernacle where God came and dwelled among His children, He wanted more. He wanted to be more intimate with His children and dwell in them instead of among them.  He wanted to come and dwell in the heart and spirit of His children. Man is the tabernacle and the spirit of man is the Holy of Holies and God wanted to dwell in the spirit of man and lead and guide Him (1 Corinthians 3:16). For this to happen, God had to pay the price of becoming a sacrifice Himself and allow Jesus to die on the cross just like the animal sacrifice in the old covenant with the Israelites. He willingly paid the price and became the sacrifice and experienced death for the joy of being able to dwell in the Holy of Holies, in the spirit of His children.

Because of what Jesus did on the cross now God can come and dwell in our spirit. We can enter into the Holy of Holies and spend time with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit when we pray in the Spirit and are led by the Spirit. We can enter into this Holy of Holies any time we want unlike in the old covenant where the High Priest could enter only once a year (Hebrews 9:7). The veil is torn and we have free access to this throne room of God the Most Holy Place and spend time with Him whenever we want (Hebrews 10:19-20). It is His Joy and Pleasure to spend time with His kids. After all, it is He who willingly paid the heavy price to make this possible for us to be able to freely enter His Most Holy Presence and have intimate conversation with Him.

Now God dwells among us and in us. We are His tabernacle. He loves to be with His children.
