The gospel of God declares that in God's full salvation sinners are redeemed, regenerated, sanctified, renewed, transformed, conformed, and glorified to become sons of God to constitute the Body of Christ.
The dispensing of the Triune God as life into the tripartite man is according to His righteousness, through His holiness, and unto His glory.
The divine Spirit mingled with our human spirit is the secret of God's organic salvation and the key to the entire Christian life.
As laboring priests of the gospel of God, we serve God in our spirit
in the gospel of His Son for the building up of the Body of Christ.
The intrinsic element of the entire teaching of God's eternal economy is that the Triune God in humanity, the wonderful Christ as the Spirit of the glorified Jesus, the seed of life, the seed of David, is sown into God's chosen people so that He might grow in them, live in them, develop in them, and be expressed from within them as the farm of God for the building up of the Church as the House of God and Kingdom of God (2 Samuel 7:12-14a; Matthew 16:18; Mark 4:11-20, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:9; cf. Leviticus 19:19; Deuteronomy 22:9).
For the growth of the seed of life within us, we need to have a fresh, up-to-date, daily consecration to Him of our human spirit, our human heart, and our mortal body so that the divine seed of life can grow in us with the full supply of all the human nutrients of our inner being for Christ to be magnified in our mortal body and for us to be swallowed up by life for the building up of Christ's Body (Matthew 5:3, 8; Proverbs 4:23; 20:9; 22:11; Philippians 1:20; Colossians 2:19).
The Bible, especially the Gospel of John, presents the divine and mysterious things in very simple words. John 14:19 says, “Yet a little while and the world beholds Me no longer, but you behold Me; because I live, you shall live also.” The Lord Jesus spoke this word to let His disciples know that in resurrection He would be transfigured from His physical body of blood and flesh into the Spirit. In His resurrection He would live, and they would live also. This word itself is very clear, but the nature of our relationship with Christ is not so apparent from this word alone. This word spoken by the Lord implies the mingling of God and man.
We, the Church, the masterpiece of God’s work, are an absolutely new item in the universe, a new invention of God. We were created by God in Christ through regeneration to be His new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).
The Greek word, poiema, means something that has been made, a handiwork, or something that has been written or composed as a poem. Not only a poetic writing may be considered a poem, but also any work of art that expresses the maker’s wisdom and design. We, the Church, the masterpiece of God’s work, are a poem expressing God’s infinite wisdom and divine design.
The heavens, the earth, and man, created by God, are not God’s masterpiece; but the Church, the Body of Christ, the fullness of the One who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:23), the corporate and universal new man (Ephesians 2:15), is a masterpiece. We have been saved by grace to be God’s masterpiece that we may walk in the good works prepared beforehand by God.
We need a vision to see that the excellent Christ, the centrality and universality of God’s economy, is the precious and preeminent One in God’s move, that as the Son of Man in ascension He has received dominion and a Kingdom, and that His coming will terminate human government and bring in the eternal Kingdom of God.
The overcomers as the shining stars are a duplication of Christ as the living Star, and they are the messengers of the churches, those who are one with Christ as the Messenger of God and who possess the present Christ as the living and fresh message sent by God to His people.
Christ is everything for God’s building, and as the engraved stone with seven eyes, the topstone of grace, He is now transfusing what He is and what He has accomplished into our being so that, by becoming the same as He is in life and nature but not in the Godhead, we may be His reproduction for the building of the temple of God.
In His heavenly ministry Christ was designated to be a kingly High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek to minister Himself as the processed Triune God into us in order to be our daily life supply and enjoyment for our nourishment, refreshment, sustenance, comfort, and strengthening, so that we may be saved to the uttermost for the building up of the Church as the Temple of God.
In Christ’s resurrection we are His reproduction. Concerning this, Peter says, “The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ...has regenerated us unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3)...We [His believers] were resurrected with Him (Ephesians 2:6). In His resurrection Christ imparted the divine life into us and made us the same as He is in life and nature to be His reproduction. He was a grain of wheat falling into the ground to die. When He grew up in resurrection, He produced many grains. The many grains are His reproduction, His multiplication, and this reproduction is His propagation. Through His death and resurrection He has been multiplied and propagated. This propagation is for the producing of the Church. Through His death and resurrection He has produced the Church as His reproduction.
When we say that we are the Church, we must realize that we have to be fully in the Spirit; if we all are in the Spirit, we are the Church in reality (Ephesians 4:4; Galatians 5:16, 22-23, 25; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 5:18; Zechariah 4:6).
Thus, the Church is the Reprint of the Spirit, who is the reality of Christ, who is the embodiment of God.
The deep thought in Romans is that God became Man so that, in God’s complete salvation, sinners may be redeemed, regenerated, sanctified, renewed, transformed, conformed, and glorified to become the sons of God, who are the same as God in life and nature, to be the members of the Body of Christ (Romans 8:3; 1:3-4; 3:24; 5:10; 8:14, 29-30; 12:4-5).
Christ has been regenerated into our being (John 1:12-13; 3:6b), and we are being fully transformed into His being (2 Corinthians 3:18); as the Spirit, He is the lampstand, and the Church is also the lampstand; we have to see what the Church is to such an extent; if we see this vision of the Church, we will be afraid to exercise our flesh (Galatians 5:16).
God’s New Testament economy is to make sinners sons of God and members of Christ to constitute the Body of Christ to express Him.
There is only the divine life with the divine nature and the divine law, which shapes us and conforms us to the image of Christ. However, this shaping requires the growth in life; for the law of life only functions as life grows. The law of life does not regulate us from sin, because it is not in the realm of sin; it is in the realm of the divine life where there is no sin, world, flesh, or self. As life grows, its law works, not mainly to regulate or correct us, but to shape us, to conform us to the image of the Firstborn Son of God. Eventually, through the function of the law of life, we all shall become the mature sons of God, and God will have His universal, corporate expression.
God’s goal in His creation of man was to have a corporate expression of Himself. According to this goal, man was made in the image of God in order to be His testimony (Genesis 1:26)....Because Adam failed God in this respect, Jesus came as the second man (1 Corinthians 15:47b) to take the position and function of Adam.
In the same way, the church today is the testimony of Jesus, that is, His expression. In the first chapter of the Bible, man is in the image of God to express God, and in the last two chapters of the Bible there is a building, the New Jerusalem, to express God.
Let us walk becomingly as in the day; not in reveling and drunkenness, not in fornication and licentiousness, not in strife and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts.
Romans 13:13, 14
