The Spirit of the Lamb lives in us so…

Romans 8:11. Currently, we are realizing the promise of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in us. This indwelling guarantees us that our mortal bodies will one day change from being mortal and take on the immortality guaranteed by the death and resurrection of the Lamb of God (1 Corinthians 15:5-55 KJV.  Ephesians 1:18-20 continues with the same thought. “ The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places.

Our belief in this Scripture determines our response to the call of God and our own resurrection from the dead. One is not resurrected simply because we believe that Jesus is a historical figure, or a good person, or a history teacher.  Participating in the Christian resurrection is conditioned by the possession of the Holy Spirit living in us.

The Expositor’s Greek Testament presents this argument.

It is clear from the alternation of πνεῦμα θεοῦ and πνεῦμα χριστοῦ in Romans 8:9 that the Spirit of Christ is the same as the Spirit of God, and the use of χριστὸς alone in the next verse shows that this same spirit is the alter ego of Christ. Cf. Php 1:19Galatians 4:6Ephesians 3:17. This is one of the passages in which the presuppositions of the Trinitarian conception of God come out most clearly. ( Retrieved from http://biblehub.com/commentaries/romans/8-11.htm .)

We have a hope because The Lamb of God was not only slain, but He rose again! He confirmed the Passover Sacrifice. He fulfilled the legal requirement of “blood for the payment of sin!” Hebrews 9:22 22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood;, and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
