Eph 3:8 To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9 and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ;
12 in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
Access is an interesting word
Everybody wants access to something.
God loves access.
Google dictionary describes it as the right to approach something, and to have the opportunity to use and benefit from it.
God has afforded access to His invisible and unsearchable riches to those who love Him.
These have bold access by the confidence which resolute faith brings.
God’s riches are unsearchable because they are not accessed through physical senses.
Man lost access to them in the Garden of Eden.
God hid them when Adam disobeyed Him, and gave us re access when Christ came.
Adam and Eve were created as eternal beings with free access into all riches.
The word hedonism comes from Eden. Hedonism is the doctrine that pleasure and happiness is the highest good.
The absence of sin is the purest form of pleasure. The root of sin is pain and the fear which pain carries.
God will not give sinful people access into these riches lest they corrupt their flawless nature through sin, and eat from the tree of life to become eternal sinners.
God’s kingdom is only accessed by the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both His eternal power and Divinity, so that they are without excuse.
Col 1:16 because by Him all things were created, those in the heavens and those on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.
God’s invisible kingdom is full of things or objects.
All realms, either visible or invisible are made up of objects which take up space and to make up these realms
Just because something cannot be seen does not make it not real.
Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the image itself of the things (pragmas), can never with the same sacrifices, which they offer continually every year, make those approaching perfect.
Heb 11;1 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the image itself of the things (pragma), can never with the same sacrifices, which they offer continually every year, make those approaching perfect.
The invisible and eternal riches are called pragmas.
So why do we want access into the pragmas of God?
- The objects or things which make up God’s invisible places in His kingdom are called pragmas.
- Earthly objects are under the curse of sin, and have become temporal.
- Pragmas seamlessly function, are intact, pristine, uncontaminated, unbreakable, and eternally enduring
- They are accessed by faith and the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
- They dwell in the light of the glory of God versus the light of the sun
- They are the flawless and pristine originals, the prototypical and archetypical models, of every universal thing created by God in its perfect and untarnished form.
- They are not subject to a malfunction or to a breakage.
- They are not limited to height, width, and length, and are limitless.
- Pragmas operate in the same way that God Himself operates.
- They can increase and diminish by faith.
- Because every universal pragma lies created inside of Christ, through His reconciliation, everything becomes conformed back to the images of those pragmas.
- This is one of the great works of Christ. No other religious leader has accomplished this.
