Christ Speaking As Me

By Clint Freeman and Ole Henrik Skjelstad

Moses and the burning bush is a type of how God speaks out of us. We all speak words of faith concerning a matter, both consciously and unconsciously. Christ’s faith is operative in us and as us and the Spirit speaks by us, as promised. By faith recognition we come to affirm what the Spirit has shown us concerning this.

A marvelous word that confirms this is 2 Corinthians 13:3 (KJV) “Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you”

The Amplified version really brings it out!!

“Since you desire and seek [perceptible] proof of the Christ Who speaks in and through me. [For He] is not weak and feeble in dealing with you, but is a mighty power within you;”

Here is the thing, the word “IN” in this scripture is Strong’s #1722 and according to the exhaustive concordance (http://biblesuite.com/greek/1722.htm) it can also be translated “AS”!!! Mark 2:15 is an example: “And (G2532) it came to pass, (G1096) that, as (G1722) Jesus (G846) sat,…”

So back to the original 2 Corinthians 13:3 (KJV); we can in fact translate it like this:

“Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking AS (1722) me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty AS (1722) you!” Another possible translation is: “Christ speaking BY me”
