Our Stand in Christ
This OIKEOS Christian Network supports and encourages a daily walk in newness of life that can only be found through belief in the accomplished work of Jesus Christ. Our Stand in Christ is a four-day Biblical education course dealing with the spiritual competition. It currently is offered regionally in the United States and runs in a 4-day weekend format. The emphasis of this course is a deeper look at good versus evil by unveiling and exposing our spiritual adversary in the light of our heavenly position in Christ.
Our Stand in Christ completes the “In Christ” series inaugurated by Our Identity in Christ and Our Maturity in Christ. The series is designed to aid Christian believers who desire to walk in newness of life in Christ. The three “In Christ” courses progressively build the learning and living of who we are in Christ, ultimately demonstrating to the student what it means to sit, walk, and stand in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:6: And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
"I’ve been really blessed by this course. It really taught me the importance of what I think about and just how great the power is that we have."
Sit - Walk - Stand
First, we sit. The accomplished work of Christ is ours to claim. The foundation of this work is the individual’s justification through the faith of Jesus Christ. As a result, we were all collectively elevated to our heavenly position. We sit at the right hand of God with Christ where we spiritually rest from our own works. This is truth which cannot be altered, diminished, or tarnished from God’s point of view because He called us to this position. This is our identity in Christ.
Ephesians 4:1: I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.
Then, we walk. From this heavenly superior and spiritually victorious position we walk or conduct our lives on earth. We reflect all the brilliance Christ embodied when he walked or conducted his life in love, light, and spiritual wisdom. This is our maturity in Christ.
Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Finally, we stand. We stand against God’s enemy and his methods and schemes to steal, kill, and destroy. To stand means when we are attacked spiritually by Satan we do not retreat or yield ground but remain unmovable on the spiritual “real estate” of our collective position seated in the heavenlies with Christ. This is our stand in Christ.
Impressions of the Heart
"If you’ve ever had a question about how to stand in Christ; if you’ve ever had a question of your responsibility as to who you are as a son of God, this is the place to take it — you can take it to your limit — you can have as much as you need — the full measure."
"All I can say about the "Our Stand in Christ" course is WOW!! That was such an excellent presentation of God's love, His goodness to us and how we can stand against the methods of the adversary. It has strengthened my relationship with God, renewed my resolve to stand against the evil one (and recognize his devices), but mainly to just enjoy being one of God's kids. It was the best course I think I've ever taken."
"We did a ministering service and I went up to get ministered to. My shoulder had been injured from a rotator cuff injury I had doing weight training. I got ministered to and the pain in my shoulder left immediately; the pain in my neck left immediately; and as for the headache I had had for two days — GONE! I came and got HEALED by the power of God!"
