Lets Drink Coca Cola in Church


 Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

23  Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

What does fulness mean?

Let’s take a Coca Cola bottle.

What is Coca Cola? Is it the bottle, or the liquid inside?

The bottle is of little importance. It’s just the container.

The fullness of Coca Cola is the brown, sweet, and delightful liquid that we love.

it’s every ingredient that is perfectly mixed in its necessary quantities and precise order, to lawfully identify and labeled it as Coca Cola, apart from anything else in the universe.

It’s the essence and make up of this liquid, which makes it to be Coca Cola and nothing else.

The fullness of God is the very essence, the reality, and the evidence of who God is apart from anything else in the universe.

It is every attribute and characteristic which is required, to make God, God.

The church is the fullness of God!

The Lord has established the church to manifest Him in His essence and reality to the world

This is called the glory of God, or allowing the invisible God to become accurately recognizable to the human senses.

Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

A woman in a local church is obedient to the Lord Jesus. She allows the Lord to transform her in every facet of her life.

God thus is able to fill her His fullness.

In theory, if this believer would yield every facet of her life to Him, she would be filled with the manifested fullness of God.

God is not only satisfied with filling every part of one believer with Himself.

He desires to fill every person, and every part of that person, with Himself.

In every local church, God desires to fill every part of every believer within Himself.

As this takes place His fulness becomes manifested through that local church.

This is called glory.

Wherever the glory of the Lord is demonstrated, multitudes throng to hear and see Him.

This is the definition of revival.

Revival is one of the churches’ main responsibilities.

I am puzzled with the many church growth programs, developed in attempts to draw people to them.

We only need to allow the Lord Jesus to be amply demonstrated in His glory.

The multitudes will surely come.

The more that He becomes displayed and lifted up, automatic revival will take place.

The NT Testament church model stresses that every believer must be filled with the fulness of the Lord for the model to work efficiently.

Church is a place that we congregate to hear a Sunday sermon. It is Sunday school for adults and kids. It is a place for Christian fellowship, and Bible studies, and programs.

These things are good. The problem occurs when we make these activities the means to an end.

The purpose of any church must be to reveal the Person of Jesus Christ by these activities in the community where it’s located, and by them to bring revival.

“The church must identify herself as the one society founded by God to make Him evident in His fulness to the world through the five senses. The church is the one and only universal agent that must, and can, furnish full evidence with all supporting facts, which define the reality of whom God is.  It must manifest Him in His fullness, so that the world has enough evidence to reach a verdict to accept or reject Him and His gospel.”  Jose Alvarez
