Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us
All of God’s fullness is permanently resident within Christ, and Christ resides within His saints.
So the fullness of what God has and what God wants to do is given to the church.
The church is the society which makes the invisible God, visible.
She is the most powerful human entity on planet earth, if she functions as God intends her to be.
The church is a secret society, for it manifests the invisible riches of God which dwell in mysteries, or secrets.
Spiritual gifts are used to take portions of God’s invisible riches dwelling in secrets, and energize them through the church in a visible form called glory, into the world.
The tools which the church uses to do this are spiritual gifts. This is why spiritual gifts cannot be prohibited.
The churches job is to make the invisible God visible, no more, and no less!
Ephesians 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
The action of God’s fullness is to fill every part of every believer with His secret riches and then to fill every aspect of the world with His glory, utilizing the church, as she displays God’s secret riches visibly back into the world now as glory.
Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The invisible and secret mysteries of Christ are made known through revelation.
Our physical senses cannot access them.
This is why having a spirit of wisdom and revelation, for the saint, is the most important thing.
Without revelation, the mysteries of God dwelling in secret, will remain as secrets.
Revelation comes by the voice of the Holy Spirit.
This is why the saint must learn how to tune in into the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
God desires to reveal His mysteries to the world, but only has the church to do so.
She is the secret society.
Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
A dispensation is defined as the administration or the management of a house or property.
It is God’s management or administration in the fullness of times, to sum up all things into and for Himself.
God uses His church, to make manifest, progressively known, and effectively working the ongoing activity and consummation of this part of His administration. She is the secret society.
For this purpose the church has received the fullness of God, His secret riches.
The church is used to sum up all things in the world back to God. She is the secret society.
God uses His church, to make manifest, progressively known, and effectively working within this world and the universe the ongoing activity and consummation of this part of His administration.
Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Eph 1:18 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,
The saints therefore are the element in which God’s fullness is deposited, energized and made known as riches in the mode of glory.
The hope of the calling is the call and invitation of God which is received with total obedience.
When the call is received with obedience and ministry is accomplished in oneness and identicalness to the Spirit, it becomes an effectual call, or a call that is full of the powerful energy of God to make it effective, and to carry out what it is supposed to do through us.
The hope of our calling becomes a reality through each saint’s obedient response to the call of God.
The hope of our calling is based then upon an effectual call; or to those to whom God’s call has come with effect. It is the call of God to a believer or church that has been answered by a totally obedient response.
When the call is received with obedience, it becomes an effectual call or a call that is full of the powerful energy of God to make it effective, operational and carry out the manifestations of the invisible mysteries of God in the visible form of glory.
Are you fulfilling this?
Eph 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Praise to God is extracted by this revealed glory in the sphere of the church
She is the secret society.
