Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities June 21 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Today’s Topic: FELLOWSHIP OF THE HEAVENLY PANTHEON
- Today’s devotional emphasizes the unique privilege of fellowship with God that Christians have been granted through Jesus Christ. This fellowship transcends the ordinary realm of mankind, elevating us to the supernatural class of the God-kind.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9).
I’m ever so grateful to the Lord for all that He’s made possible to and available to us in Christ Jesus. Think about the possibility of fellowship with God. You wouldn’t find that in any religion, as no religion offers you fellowship with God. But Jesus brought us into fellowship with God. What an amazing reality!
In our prayers, for example. there’re special kinds of communications with God that help us build our spirits, because we’re rich fellowship with the Lord. The Bible says in 1 John 1:3, “That in which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

Also, 1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” The Apostle Peter takes it further in 2 Peter 1:3-4. He says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature…”
The Greek word that’s translated “partakers” comes from the same root word as fellowship; it’s “Koinonia.” Thus, “partakers of the divine nature” is translated from “koinonos theias phuseos,” and that means associates of the God-kind. This implies that we’ve been brought into the fellowship of the divine, heavenly pantheon.
No wonder the Bible says, “.. Ye are gods..” (Psalm 82:6). The Lord Jesus, quoting the psalms, reiterated this truth in John 10:34, “..it is not written in your law, said, Ye are gods?” This is the wonder of Christianity; it’s the whole essence of the Lord’s death, burial and His glorious resurrection.
How beautiful it is to know that we’re in fellowship with the Sovereign King, the Monarch of the universe, as John so succinctly puts it in 1 John 1:3. You’ve been translated from the ordinary realm of mankind to the supernatural class of the God-kind, where you can enjoy true, deep and quality fellowship and union with divinity. What a blessing!
Dear Father, thank you for the vital nature of divinity and the inseparable oneness with you that I have in Christ. What an honour, blessing and privilege to be in fellowship with the blessed and only Potentate, the Monarch of the universe and only true and righteous God!
2 Corinthians 13:14 AMPC
14 The grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the presence and fellowship (the communion and sharing together, and participation) in the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen (so be it).
1 John 1:1-3
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
