Imagine a medicine that has as part of its ingredients an element that kills off certain germs in your body. If you drink it, certain harmful organisms in your body cannot survive. But your good body goes on, healthier, freer, healed.
Satan, a cosmic enemy of God, has a parisitic relationship of evil attachment to man's being. Satan is like a leech attached to its host.
There is something like a medical drink prepared by God. If we take this drink in it will leave our soul intake. But it has an ingredient which will strip away the parasite which is attached to the being of man, as its host.
The "drink" is the life giving Spirit
that Christ became in resurrection.
"the last Adam became a life giving Spirit" (1 Cor. 15:45b)
And the killing ingredient in this "drink" is the cross of Christ. You it will not destroy. But it will stripe away the "leech" of Satan who has attached himself to your humanity rendering the soul independent from God, ego of rebellion and alienation from the life of God.
It is lie a sieve. You will pass through. But Satan will be striped off, eliminated. And he knows that. He knows that he cannot survive the work of the cross which is an ingredient of the Holy Spirit.
Paul pioneered in the drinking in of this divine beverage. He availed himself to the full benefit of the Satan destroying ingredients of this beverage. And here is what he wrote us.
" I [ego] amd crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I [ego] who live; but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I [ego] now live in the flesh I [ego] live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me." (Gal .2:20)
Ego has gone through a transformation.
Ego has been liberated from something.
Something malicious and malevolent has been "crossed out" by Jesus Christ.
On the other side, "I"
[ego] still exists. But it is joined instead to the Son of God in an "organic" union.
continues to live a victorious life in faith that being joined to Christ is the only way to live henceforth.
