The word “oneness” can mean “being the same as.” This is NOT the definition that I mean when I say that we Saints have a spiritual “oneness” with God. NO HUMAN WHETHER SAVED OR UNSAVED WILL EVER BE GOD!!! But when a sinner is “Born Again” and becomes a new spiritual creation, he/she now shares with God some of His spiritual supernatural characteristics that are unique to Him and Him ONLY! In the preceding chapters, I have shared our new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile, and our shared “DNA” {Divine Nature of the Almighty} through the Fruit of the Spirit which indeed make each Saint totally unique individually, but the SAME corporately in Christ’s Bride Church. We as spiritually begotten children of God are ALL of the SAME spiritual supernatural family of God. We are not only ONE united with God, but also ONE united with each other as part of the family of God!

Philippians 3:8-9 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have put aside all else, counting it worth less than nothing, in order that I can have Christ, 9 and become one with him, no longer counting on being saved by being good enough or by obeying God’s laws, but by trusting Christ to save me; for God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith-counting on Christ alone.

Philippians 2:1-5 SO BY whatever [appeal to you there is in our mutual dwelling in Christ, by whatever] strengthening and consoling and encouraging [our relationship] in Him [affords], by whatever persuasive incentive there is in love, by whatever participation in the [Holy] Spirit [we share], and by whatever depth of affection and compassionate sympathy, 2Fill up and complete my joy by living in harmony and being of the same mind and one in purpose, having the same love, being in full accord and of one harmonious mind and intention. 3Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves]. 4Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others. 5 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] AMP
John 1:12-13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name– [Isa 56:5.] 13Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP
1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? NIV

This “oneness” with God, what does it mean? Most Christians are correctly taught that God the Holy Spirit lives in us Saints, BUT how many of you know, understand, and can accept that WE LIVE IN GOD?

I will share with you a study of our “ONENESS” with God which means because the Godhead lives in us, WE as “Born Again” adopted children of God are living in God. To me this is mind boggling!!! It’s hard enough to know and understand how the Holy Spirit indwells us, BUT how can I live in God? As you read the following John 14, John 15, 1 John 4, and Ephesians 1 Scriptures, you will see the answer is because of God’s AGAPAO/AGAPE – LOVE for us, our LOVE for Him, and our LOVE for each other!
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, AMP
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him {YOU live in God}, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit {and the Godhead lives in YOU} –and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP
John 15:1-16 “I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing {spiritual fruit}] {Does NOT win lost sinners to Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.} He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit. You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].
“Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear {spiritual} fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the {spiritual} vine, neither can you bear {spiritual} fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant {spiritual}) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
“If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. When you bear (produce) much {spiritual} fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.
“I have loved you, [just] as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love [continue in His love with Me]. If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commandments and live on in His love. I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.
“This is My commandment: that you love one another [just] as I have loved you. No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends. You are My friends if you keep on doing the things which I command you to do. I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.]
“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear {much spiritual} fruit and keep on bearing, and that your {spiritual} fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.” AMP
1 John 4:12-16 No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God {spiritually} abides (lives and remains) in us {X} and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to its full maturity, runs its full course, is perfected) in us! By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we {spiritually} abide (live and remain) in Him {Y} and He in us {X}: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit. And [besides] we ourselves have seen (have deliberately and steadfastly contemplated) and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son [as the] Savior of the world. Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him {X} and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God {Y}. And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God {Y}, and God dwells and continues in him {X}. AMP {This is an awesome text! Four X’s for God dwelling/living in us and three Y’s for us dwelling/living in Him ALL through AGAPE/LOVE.}
Ephesians 1:5 For He {God the Father} foreordained us ({pre}destined us, planned in love for us) {BEFORE the foundation of the world} to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]– AMP

Isn’t this truly amazing!? Whoever thought that us “Born Again” adopted Saints could dwell in God? You must understand that we will NEVER be God, but that He and us are so intricately and intimately involved that NOTHING can separate us from His AGAPE/LOVE!!!
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. NKJV
