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!!!

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!!!

Messianic Prophecies: The Angel of the LORD.

Dear friends, We all know Jesus is full of Grace and Truth and through the New Covenant we can see shadows, types and revelation of Christ in the Old Testament Scriptures. I was reading something recently and saw some of the Scriptures in the OT which clearly were Messianic Prophecies, now were used to teach on ‘angels’.

One of the ways we can prove the Deity of Christ, that Jesus is God, the Second Person of the Trinity, is by looking at the Old Testament. What the Old Testament concealed, the New Testament Revealed.

One of the Confident joys of sharing with precious people that follow Jehovah’s witnesses, Mormons, or Judaism, is that they may have a different New Testament to us or may not even believe in the N.T. But we can prove to them that Jesus is God and appeared just from the Old Testament without even looking at the New Testament. For example precious Jews dont’ believe how can God appear in a human form or other ways?

The bible actually says in shadows that Jesus actually appeared in the Old Testament times.

Did you know that there is One Specific Angel in the Old Testament that was distinct from all the other angels in the Bible? This Angel was known as ‘The Angel of the Lord’, not ‘an angel’, but ‘The Angel of the Lord’. ‘The’ not ‘an’.

Please read these two articles on Jesus appearing as the Angel of the Lord,

The Trinity, Page 9-10

An Angel you Ought to know

Similarities between The Angel of the LORD and Jesus

Whenever the O.T. talks about The Angel of the Lord, it’s actually talking about Jesus. We now have the privilege of interpreting the Old Testament through New Covenant lenses.

If the book of Hebrews Chapter 1(Please read and understand it’s context) which decalres that Jesus is Greater than all angels and that He Alone is the Radiance of God’s Glory. Then this “The Angel of the Lord” mentioned in the OT to be “The Angel of His Presence” Himself, cannot be an angel- since Jesus Alone is the Radiance of His Glory! It’s actually Jesus, Just another Messianic Prophecy.
