The fullness of JESUS CHRIST [YESHUA MASHIAH] manifested – by the HOLY SPIRIT – in our inward parts, is the definitive basis for our growth and function in GOD.
And, this is so, given that:
- The fullness of JESUS CHRIST defines the Body of MESSIAH [see John 1:16, NASB/NKJV/KJV]. And His Fullness is appointed to fill all in all. Ephesians 1:22-23 (NASB) reads: < 22 And He [the FATHER] put all things in subjection under His [YESHUA’s] feet, and gave Him [YESHUA] as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. > .
- Colossians 1:19-20 [NASB] declares that: < 19 … it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him [YESHUA], 20 and through Him [YESHUA] to reconcile all things to Himself [the FATHER], having made peace through the blood of His [YESHUA’s] cross; through Him [YESHUA], I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven. >
- All who believe have received the fullness of JESUS CHRIST [John 1:16, NASB; 3:16]
- Colossians 1:17 [NASB] declares that: < 17 He [YESHUA] is before all things, and in Him [YESHUA] all things hold together. >
The manifestation of the fullness of CHRIST JESUS into our inward parts is a revelation birthed into us from the bosom of the FATHER [John 1:18, 16-18, NKJV] by the HOLY SPIRIT [see 1 Cor 2:10].
This revelation of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST, opened (birthed) and developed by the HOLY SPIRIT into our inward parts [John 16:14; 1 Corinthians 2:10], is the progressive actualization of the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [Rom 3:21-22; Matt 5:17-18] from the fullness of JESUS CHRIST.
What is revealed of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST, is perfected and completed into our inward parts by the HOLY SPIRIT, as we choose to express the Testimony of JESUS in our thoughts, words, deeds and relationships, so that we are each created in JESUS CHRIST [Ephesians 2:10] in our inward parts of spirit, soul and heart [see 2 Cor 4:16].
The fullness of JESUS CHRIST revealed into us is the Mystery of CHRIST manifested into the Body of CHRIST.
The Mystery of CHRIST manifested, is CHRIST in us, the hope of glory [see Colossians 1:26-28, NKJV; 1 Corinthians 2:7].
The outcome of the revelation of the Mystery of CHRIST is that we unfold as Epistles of CHRIST [see 2 Corinthians 3:3, NKJV] who can operate as Ministers of CHRIST [see 1 Corinthians 4:1] and Ministers of the New Covenant [see 2 Corinthians 3:6].
The ultimate intent is that we will actualize all function in thought, word, deed and relationship – in and by and through the fullness of JESUS CHRIST.
The communication of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST into us is – in the substance [Greek: ‘hupostasis’] and witness [Greek: ‘marturia’] of JESUS CHRIST – worked into our inward parts, by the HOLY SPIRIT [John 16:14].
The substance and witness of JESUS CHRIST defines our call and our every function that expresses our calling.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) instructs us that: < 1 … faith is the substance [Greek: ‘hupostasis’] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. >
We are called to set our hope on JESUS CHRIST – with perseverance and constancy [Romans 5:1-5]. When we set our hope on JESUS CHRIST, the substance of our hope will be of Him.
1 John 3:3 tells us that when we set our hope on JESUS we are purified as He is pure! And, this comes about because the substance of JESUS CHRIST – that manifests out of our hope in YESHUA – is pure and perfect [see Matt 5:48]!
Hope in CHRIST JESUS is the gateway for the substance of JESUS CHRIST taking form within us [see 2 Cor 3:3, 4:6-7, NKJV].
The substance of JESUS CHRIST unveils in the evidence of His Witness within us [1 John 5:10a, NKJV].
The witness within us [see 1 John 5:10a, NKJV] is the functional evidence of faith, which unfolds as the substance of our hope [which is faith], is perfected and completed into us by JESUS, the Author and Finisher of our faith [see Hebrews 12:2a].
The witness that unfolds from the substance of YESHUA’s Fullness is called “the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of GOD” [see Revelation 3:14b; Eph 2:10; 2 Cor 5:17].
This faithful and true Witness is expressed in Spirit, Water and Blood [see 1 John 5:10a, 8, NKJV]. This faithful and true Witness that operates in Spirit, Water and Blood [see John 19:30, 34] is alive in every born-again Christian.
Spirit, Water and Blood, is the [Rhema] Witness of the [Logos] Word of the Cross, the power of the risen CHRIST operating in our inward parts, by the HOLY SPIRIT [see Eph 3:20; 1 Cor 1:18, NASB] in a Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood [see 1 John 5:8, NKJV; John 19:30, 34].
Hebrews 1:3b tells us that the LORD JESUS upholds all things [for fulfillment in the FATHER’s will] by the Rhema Word of His Power. Ephesians 3:20 declares that GOD will give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to the [Rhema Word of YESHUA’s] power that works within us.
We can now understand that we have an operating system in our inward parts, defined exclusively in the fullness of CHRIST JESUS, that operates by the HOLY SPIRIT – to the FATHER’s glory.
The call of YESHUA in each one of our lives opens and develops in us, in this functional witness that is a living and growing actualization of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST.
In the witness being developed in us, we actualize the capacity to do all things in the Name of YESHUA [see John 14:12-14; 15:16], by the HOLY SPIRIT, in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [see Romans 8:2, 1-4; Matthew 5:17]. Amen! GBU.
