*****************************************************************************************************************************************************

The mystery/secret of the Good News of Christ

 

Ephesians 3:1-12; Colossians 1:25-28

 

It was kept hidden for ages past but it has now been revealed to us New Testament saints who believe in Jesus as the Messiah

 

What is this mystery? This secret? What is the unsearchable riches of Christ? What does unsearchable mean?

 

How did paul receive revelation to understand this mystery?

On the road to Damascus. Acts 26:12-23. Compare this with the mount of transfiguration Matthew 17:1-13. He counted all things as poo compare to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ. Php 3:1-11

 

What is this mystery?

Luke 24:25-27; 44-48

Jesus is the completion, fullfillment of prophecy, types and shadows of the Old Testament- Law, Prophets and Writings. Jesus is the OT manifested/revealed in a human body (John 1:1.)

Paul saw Jesus in every page of the OT. To preach Jesus from the OT was his revelation.

2 Corinthians 1:20

 

Christ in the Old Testament

Since God’s plan focuses on Christ and his glory (Eph 1:10), it is natural that the promises of God and the symbols in the Old testmant all point forward to him. “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him [Christ]” (2 Cor 1:20).

The OT as a whole, through its promises, its symbols, and its pictures of salvation, looks forward to the actual accomplishment of salvation that took place once-for-all in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Sometimes God gives immediate, temporal blessings in the Old Testament. These blessings are only a foretaste of the rich eternal blessings that come through Christ: Eph 1:3

The NT constantly talks about Christ and the salvation that he has brought. That is obvious. What is not so obvious is that the same is true of the OT, though it does this by way of anticipation. It gives us shadows and type of things that were to come. (1 Cor 10:6,11; Heb 8:5)

A type is a special example, symbol, or picture that God designed beforehand, and that he placed in history at an earlier point in time in order to point forward to a later, larger fulfillment.

Animal sacrifices in the OT prefigured the final sacrifice of Christ. So these animal sacrifices were ‘types’ of Christ.

Fulfillment takes place preeminently in Christ (Eph 1:10; 2 Cor 1:20).

 

The law is Shadow, but Christ is the Reality/Substance. (Colossians 2:16-20)

 

Even angels and the OT saints longed to look into these things to uncover the hidden gospel but you and I have been privileged to have it revealed to us!!

1 Peter 1:10-12

 

What are some of the unsearchable riches of Christ as hidden/concealed in the OT that has been revealed to NT saints since Jesus death, burial, ressurection and ascension?

 

-The heavens have been opened by Jesus’ baptism. It never closed since then.

Under Moses law, your sin brought a curse that could close the heavens above you like bronze. Deut 28:23. But Jesus rescued us from the curse of the law Gal 3:13.

Isaiah 64:1; Matthew 3:13-17; Luke 3:21-22; Acts 7:54-56.

Don’t be like the confused pentecostals who asked God to open the heavens, but thank God the heavens are already opened above you!!!!

 

-Psalm 51, Ezekiel 36:22-27; Jeremiah 33:8; 31:33-34 Prophecy=> Hebrews 10:15-18; 1John 1:5-9; Colossians 2:13-14; Ephesians 1:7; Matthew 6:12-15; John 20:22-23

-Psalm 25:3-6 Prophecy => Fulfillment Hebrews 10:19-23; Colossians 1:22

-The Glory of God lives inside of you! We don’t have to ‘get’ into the Glory, we are already in the Glory!! Colossians 1:24-27; 2:9; Hebrews 1:3; John 17:20-26. That is the Glory and the Unsearchable Riches of the New Covenant in Christ compared to moses covenant.

The OT Glory was a fading glory that’s why you had to get more of it. But NT glory is unfading glory and is ever increasing glory!! There is only 2 types of Glory: OT glory or NT Glory. (2 Corinthians 3:7-18)

 

Conclusion:

The mystery is this: Jesus Who is the fulfillment of the OT lives inside of you so you can experience God’s Glory!!

 

The Glory of God is the tangible Presence of God that is manifested into the earthly realm, that can be tasted, touched, smelt and seen.

 

The Old Covenant of Moses which was made obsolete is this: the Glory of God is outside of you!!

But the New Covenant established by Jesus is this: The Glory of God is inside of you!!

 

Say with me, Christ in me the Hope of experiencing God’s Glory!! Jesus is all I need and I have already have Him!! It’s all about Jesus!!!

Redeemed from the Curse of the Law, MP3 audio

Yesterday was sharing a message to a group of believers about how God spoke to me about on Galatians 3:13 about Christ redeeming us from the curse of the law so that we might receive the blessing given to Abraham.

Here is a quick list of the notes and I will update it again soon in more detail- i made a couple of small mistakes in my talk.

Feel free to give any feedback, questions, challenges and answers because it helps us all to grow and expand our understanding of the truth.

Galatians 3 10 But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.”*11 So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the law. For the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”*12 This way of faith is very different from the way of law, which says, “It is through obeying the law that a person has life.”* 13 But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”*14 Through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham, so that we who are believers might receive the promised* Holy Spirit through faith.
Deuteronomy 2123 the body must not remain hanging from the tree overnight. You must bury the body that same day, for anyone who is hung* is cursed in the sight of God. In this way, you will prevent the defilement of the land the LORD your God is giving you as your special possession.

Obedience to the law results in blessings Deut 28:1-14

Disobedience to the law results in horrible curses Deut 28:15-68

Law is one unit

James 2 10 For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws.11 For the same God who said, “You must not commit adultery,” also said, “You must not murder.”* So if you murder someone but do not commit adultery, you have still broken the law.

In our day, what else can the ‘law’ refer to?
The ‘law’ not only stands for the Mosaic law, but it can also stand for church laws/traditions, denominations laws, or any requirements you put on yourself in order to obtain righteousness before God, right standing before God.

What is legalism? or does it mean to be ‘living under the law’?
i.e. if you don’t do this or dont’ do that, then God won’t love you anymore and He will be angry with you. God will only love you if you do this and that- conditional love.

What is the purpose of the Law?

-To reveal sin.

Romans 3 19 Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses, and to show that the entire world is guilty before God.20 For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.

-To Stirup sin. Romans 7:8-13; 1 Corinthians 15:56

-To stop the mouth. Romans 3:19-20

-To lead us to Christ. Galatians 3:24

Are Christians under the old covenant law?

No. We live by the Spirit by Faith in Christ’s blood, we don’t live by external rules and laws written on tablets of stone but an inward guiding of the Holy Spirit of Grace that doesn’t bring any condemnation, guilty or curse but brings freedom and spontaneity.

Galatians 2:19; 5:18

Romans 6:14; 7:4

1 Timothy 1:8-11

We live by faith in Christ and we are made right with God through a Gift.

Galatians 2:20

Romans 3:21-26

Genesis 15:6; Habakuk 2:4

God swore an oath to never be angry with us again

Isaiah 54:9-10;43:25, Hebrews 8:8-13

We overcome the devil, the accuser of our brothers and sisters by the blood of Jesus given to us by God because God is FOR us not against us!! He is our Defender not our accuser!!

Messiah in the Passover- Exodus 12

P.S PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR JEWISH FRIENDS YOU KNOW!!!

*******************************************************************************************************************************

What does it mean “to be under the Blood of Jesus?” Or to be “Covered by the blood of Jesus?”

Dear friends, we will never be able fully comprehend what it means to be covered/under the Blood of Jesus the Messiah until we understand the story of the Passover in Exodus 12.

This is a prophetic picture of what Jesus would be for us in the New Covenant.

There are symbolism and shadows of the Messiah we can discover in the Passover feasts that the Jewish people practice to this day- it’s incredible!! have a look at the video, it’s 45mins long altogather.

Please read Exodus 12:1-30 before you watch the video

Exodus 12:15 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, so that when I see the blood I will pass over you, and this plague will not fall on you to destroy you when I attack the land of Egypt.

God told the Israelites and Egyptians, for each family they must kill a spotless lamb and apply the blood on the doorposts of their houses. When God sees the blood of an innocent lamb, His Righteous/just wrath/plaque judgment would passover them.

Jesus is our Passover Lamb. When God sees the Blood of His Son applied on the door posts of our lives- we’re His house, His blood is sprinkled on us, His righteous, just wrath/judgment will passover us Forever- He will never be angry with us again or rebuke us again(Isaiah 54); He blots out all our transgressions(Isaiah 43) and remembers them no more (Hebrews 10), therefore He can no longer Condemn us (Romans 8:1)- no more condemnation, no more guilt, no more shame, no more victim mentality of low self-esteem.

Full Cleansing!!!

He sees the Blood of His Perfect Son, we are now under His blood – clothed in His Righeousness, when He sees the Blood, we are fully accepted, loved in His Sight adopted as His Sons and Daughters and He laughs! smiles and rejoices over us with Singing!!!

That’s what it means to be under the Blood of the Son of God for those who have trusted-

His Judgment has already passed over us for all eternity (even on the Day of Judgment, you won’t have to stand before God on whether you will goto Heaven or the Lake of Fire, that has already been settled the moment you became born-again) and His Favor/Grace has Stopped over and is hovering over us forever in all eternity!!!

His wrath(righteous indignant anger of The Infinite Just God) has passed over you because His Justice has been satiasfied with the substitionary death of the Spotless Sinless Jesus and His Favor/Grace/Love has stopped over and poured/lavished over you because He has raised Christ from the dead and been satiasfied with the Righteousness(Perfect obedience of Jesus).

The Blood of Jesus will never run out of its power. It has unending life and it continuously washes over us- we can now approach the Throne of Grace with freedom and confidence and stand in His Presence 24/7 and never be cutoff from Him.

If you have applied the Blood of Jesus over your life, then you are Eternally secured in the arms of Your Heavenly Father and the Heavens will always stand open above you – the Heavens are shining and all the heavenly hosts cannot resists but join in unision and praise the Blood of Jesus!!!

I took these videos last night at a local baptist church where Messianic Jewish bible scholar Dr. Arnold from Ariel ministries spoke.

Part 1: 22mins

Part 2: 22mins

Revelation 12:11 But they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die

May  you overcome by the Blood of Jesus the Lamb of God!!!
