Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Just as certainly as the Vine was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended and seated, so the Branches were crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended and seated. Will we abide in the Vine and share in the overcoming, or not?
Now the Lord says that overcomers will sit with Him in His throne. How is that possible? Because we are in Him, and He is in us:
1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
