This is a serious assertion – one, for those unaware of spiritual realities, that borders on the absurd given the ramifications of such a statement. CHECK IT – Jesus is our WISDOM! our RIGHTEOUSNESS! our HOLINESS! our REDEMPTION! WOW!!!!

We (the New Creation – prophesied of by David in Psalm 102:18) are called the Man in Christ. Paul the apostle regards US as the “any man in Christ”. Peter speaks of us as the Royal Priesthood, the translated ones, the ones born of incorruptible seed.
While Charles Darwins traces the origin of species to a primordial stew stirred up by the aftermath of evolution, Jesus by His resurrection announces the arrival of a new class after the Order of Melchizedek – THE MAN IN CHRIST
This man possesses four distinct features that distinguishes him from the seed of Adam. These are markers of his majesty for in the hierarchy of created beings he is at the top. His creation is not after the manner of dust but from the essence of Light and the spoken word.
First, let us look at Sophia…
1. I am highly sophisticated because I am in Christ
My Choices are Christ-centred and Christ-driven
My lifestyle is after the order of Melchizedek – Peace and Righteousness
2. I possess CLARITY of insight, foresight and hindsight.
I learn as the voice behind me reveals the path that I should walk
I learn as the rod and staff unveils the road ahead
I learn as the candle of the Lord demystifies the inner workings of my heart
3. I conceive strategies and execute them with ruthless accuracy
I am as Shamgar whose ox goad defeats the enemy
I am as David whose slingshot crushes the giant
4. I am skilled and schooled by the SPIRIT of revelation – I know all things
I HAVE AN UNCTION FROM CHRIST
