BEING ESTABLISHED IN THE FAITH OF THE SON.
One thing we need is to be established in the the faith of the Son. Establishment therefore guarantee our success in the race into God. Our race is not to compete with the world but our race is a journey into the Son that ends in the Father. The essence of our walk is to end up in the Son, and when we end up in the Son, we have ended in the Father. The Fatherhood of God is attained in us in our participation in the things of the spirit of God through our walk. It is attained in bearing the image of the Son of God. We can not clearly and accurately end in the Father without first having our end in the Son. This journey is a journey of no looking back. You get disqualified when you look back, this is not just backsliding. It is in saying you have no recognition again with the Son. There is hope for a man that still back slide than a man that says he no longer have recognition with the name of the Son. So we see.
Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and LOOKING BACK, IS FIT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man DRAW BACK, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
10:39 But we are not of them WHO DRAW BACK UNTO PERDITION; but of them that BELIEVE to the saving of the soul.
So you see, we believe to the saving of the soul. Until we arrive at Christ we must not stop. Even the law has an essence, is for the bringing of man into Christ. But because it could not be achieved even through the people. It was faulty.
Galatians 3:24 Wherefore THE LAW was our schoolmaster TO BRING US UNTO CHRIST, that we might be justified by faith.
Every teaching and commandment is meant for a purpose. Is for the bringing of man into Christ. Any gospel that does not bring man to Christ is false. It is not the Christ of gospel. The gospel is the gospel of Christ.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL OF CHRIST: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
It’s the gospel of Christ and it must be taught to bring men back to Christ and cause man to arrive in the Father through Christ. Our commendation of man into God’s hand must be to bring them into Christ. To build men up into the full person of Christ. When Christ is not properly preached and clearly taught to bring men to Christ then the gospel has been abused. The reason is because that’s what validate the bringing of man to the Father. Jesus is that entrance. So we must in our commendation launch men into Christ. Paul said by the Spirit of God.
Acts 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you TO GOD, and to the WORD OF HIS GRACE, which is able to BUILD YOU UP, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
To build you up to where? Is Christ. The essence of the word is to build men up to the person of Christ. So that word of Christ may fully dwell in man. This build the ability of that growth into Christ in man. When the word of Christ rest in a man statures are been built for access into gaining ground for the fitting into the building up into Christ.
Colossians 3:16 LET THE WORD OF CHRIST DWELL IN YOU RICHLY IN ALL WISDOM ; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
It must dwell in our hearts richly and not poorly. The word of Christ must dwell in our hearts intentionally, it’s for the purpose of obedience into gaining stature into Christ. As we Obey and allow the word of Christ to dwell in us, our feet begin to receive the capacity for building up into the person f Christ. Then gradually Christ will be formed in us.
Galatians 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again UNTIL CHRIST BE FORMED IN YOU,
Until Christ be formed. There is no resting we must keep running after Him and having His word in us even to obeying it for Christ to be formed in us. Paul said he travail again in birth until Christ is formed. Relating this to the parable Jesus said to His disciples
John 16:21 A woman when she is in TRAVAIL HATH SORROW, because her hour is come: but AS SOON AS SHE IS DELIVERED OF THE CHILD, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
The joy is to come into the end which is the birthing of Christ which is to be fully formed in us. Where we will lose all of our selves as we gain of all the person or self of Christ. That’s the joy our soul must await!
We need the word of God to be properly rooted deep on our inside for this to take effect. We must also not forget the work of obedience in this.
Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so WALK ye in him:
2:7 ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN HIM, AND STABLISHED IN THE FAITH, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
This is my life, I tell you. To walk in Christ. Even into Him. To be rooted and built up in Him. When you understand the essence of a seed having root, you will know every seed survival is dependent on the root it has deep to the ground. It says to be rooted and built in Him. Don’t just build your body for good shapes. Build yourself more in the Lord. The rooted in the word and be built in the word. Being rooted and built up into Him. There is something to enter into. I remember a vision I had in school some years ago, I saw the way we are been built into Christ, I saw that it actually not start from the Head but from the feet then to the head. Which means the measure of your growing up into Christ is the measure of your walk with Christ. I remember seeing a man also in a vision who was walking deeply with the Lord. You’ll need discernment to see such a walk. I saw it with some dust, like you’ll know this man is really walking with the Lord, those dust were like experiences he had with the Lord and his obedience to the word of God. He was deeply walking with the Lord. Our walk with Christ determines our growth into Christ. Our meal to grow therefore is to be built up in the word and in the walk of obedience. It’s very important.
Colossians 2:9 FOR IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY.
2:10 And ye are complete IN HIM, which is the head of all principality and power:
This is how I know that a man that has come into the fullness of Christ has come into the fullness of the Godhead because Christ house Them. When a man fully enters Christ, he has completely entered into the Godhead. You remembered the prayer of Jesus was for us to be the fourth man.
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
I remember seeing this word in a vision, clearly of how we are the fourth person in the Godhead yet submissive with Their lives fully in us.
That’s our journey. The journey is into the Father. But we can come in through the Son. That’s our participation. It’s in been fully established in the Son. We must grow up in Him. For in growing up into Him we have entered into the man Christ. We grow up into Him in all things. To be rooted and then growing up into Him in all things. For this is our establishment.
Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, MAY GROW UP INTO HIM IN ALL THINGS, which is the head, EVEN CHRIST:
We must understand that we need this as a church. No one can do this alone. We must understand the place of the church in this.
Ephesians 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto A PERFECT MAN, UNTO THE MEASURE OF THE stature OF THE FULNESS OF CHRIST:
4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
If the person we are growing up into is the perfect man, then we must not be an imperfect church. If He is matured then His Church must be matured too. The appearances that ought to be seen on the earth must be the faces of people who bear Christ in the heart and appearing in the faces or forehead with His name and in nature. When we stand the Father see Sons. What the Father sees always is Sons. And we must grow up to the Father sight of the Father. This is our establishment in the faith of the Son. Our lives is in crucified life with the Son to be established in the faith of the Son.
Galatians 2:20 I am CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE by the FAITH OF THE SON OF God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
We receive grace for speed in the spirit. To walk in obedience and to grow up in the word of His grace and in the word of Christ for to be built into the Person of Christ, until this we will sorrow and groan to be comforted into the Person of Christ like that woman Jesus said until that birthing of Christ been fully formed in us. Keep walking…
