As He Is So Are We In This World
1 John 4:17
 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of  judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
Revelation 2:13
 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thouholdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
Well, what do you have in Christ? I’ve got nine things that I came up here with and if you comeup with anything else, I wish you would let me know because I would like to add to this and get just as many things as we can find in the word of God and I want to put this on the web page sothat everyone can see what it is that we are and who we are in Christ.Is Christ the light of the world in John 8:12?John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that  followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
 Now, how does this apply to us?Matthew 5:14-16
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and  glorify your Father which is in heaven.
 Next Christ tells us that he is the bread of life in John 6:35.John 6:35
 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
This ought to have some application to us.1 Corinthians 10:17
 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
If you are bread, what is it that you are doing? You are feeding people, you are giving people thewords of Christ, because Christ is the bread of life. The church in the time of Christ was just likethe church today. They had their mind on stuff instead of spirit.There’s another thing that Christ says he has, he says he has living waters.
Revelation 7:17
 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
John 4:10
 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that  saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given theeliving water.
Does this apply to those in Christ too?John 7:38
 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
The water and the bread are really the same thing, it’s the word of life. The words that I havespoken to you, they are spirit and they are life. They come out of us, out of the elect, just likethey came out of Christ.John 10:7-14
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find  pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that theymight have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good  shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whoseown the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and carethnot for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
If you have Christ in you, are you going to flee when the wolf comes? What is the wolf? Thewolf is the enemy, the false doctrines that come up against you and would have you think thatyou think you are somebody special. The Bible tells us clearly that you are free from sin. Sindoesn’t have dominion over you. If you say it, you will be hated. Christ says he is the door andhe says he is the shepherd and if he is really there, he is not going to back down. If it’s a lion or  bear or wolf, he’s going to stand up and face the challenge. Don’t think there won’t bechallenges. Let’s look at what it says about us.John 10:1-5
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and hecalleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep,he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will theynot follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
 Now, we are Christ’s sheep and we also enter by Christ into the sheepfold and we are Christ’sshepherds. We are both, just like Christ was both a son of God and he’s the wife through whichGod brought everything into the world. We are the same way, we serve many functions. Thescriptures have many types to bring those functions out. In Luke 4, Christ says that he was sentof God.
Luke 4:43
 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.
John 5:30
 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
 Now listen to this concerning us.John 20:21
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
What did God send Christ as? He sent Christ as the shepherd of the sheep. He sent Christ to setan example. He sent Christ to lead the way, to be the bread and the water and, as the nextexample shows, to be rejected. Christ was not received by those to whom God sent him becauseHe sent him to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and they didn’t receive him.John 1:9-11
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. Hewas in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came untohis own, and his own received him not.
That’s what it’s talking about in all 3 verses, 9, 10, and 11 are all talking about ‘his own.’John 8:26
 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
John 8:23
 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
How’s that going to play out with us?John 14:16-18
 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he mayabide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it  seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
John 15:20-21
 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because theyknow not him that sent me.
Christ, of course, was a witness. That’s our seventh item here. Christ came as a witness.John 3:10-11
 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
