The Mystery: Christ and the Bride: Perfect Union
1 John 1:1-5 is one of the a lot of abstruse revelations:
John 1 (KJV)
“In the alpha was the Word, and the Chat was with God, and the Chat was God. 2 The aforementioned was in the alpha with God. 3 All things were fabricated by him; and after him was not any affair fabricated that was made. 4 In him was life; and the activity was the ablaze of men. 5 And the ablaze shineth in darkness; and the black comprehended it not.” (emphasis added)
Even the aggregation that absolved the apple with Christ did not absolutely accept that He was the accomplishment of the Word:
Luke 24:44-45 (KJV)
“44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things accept to be fulfilled, which were accounting in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, apropos me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they ability accept the scriptures,… “
The Old Testament is The New Testament concealed; the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. The Angelic Scripture is God absolute the end (Revelation) from the alpha (Genesis) to us. Christ is the accomplishment of the Old Testament and the New Testament. Unless we get central the affection and apperception of God intimately, we will not apperceive and accept Him or His plan accounting down for us by His Spirit. The aftereffect of this is to perish forever, a peril one would be the a lot of absurd to action with.
Gen 2:24 (KJV)
“24 Accordingly shall a man leave his ancestor and his mother, and shall carve unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh… Gen 4 (KJV) And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bald Cain, and said, I accept gotten a man from the Lord.” accent added)
Adam knew Eve carefully and became one beef afore they brought alternating progeny. The Advocate Paul said this abundant abstruseness (the union) is appear in Christ and the church.
Eph 5:25-33 KJV
“25 Husbands, adulation your wives, even as Christ aswell admired the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he ability absolve and absolve it with the abrasion of baptize by the word, 27 That he ability present it to himself a august church, not accepting spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be angelic and after blemish. 28 … He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man anytime yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 For we are associates of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this could cause shall a man leave his ancestor and mother, and shall be abutting unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a abundant mystery: but I allege apropos Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in accurate so adulation his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she admiration her husband.” (emphasis added)
It is His Chat that washes us apple-pie and prepares us to be angelic for Him at His return. We admire Him if we admire His Word. There is no acumen amid Christ and His Word. To amusement the Angelic Scripture in a absent-minded address is to not alone be denied of alive Christ carefully but is aswell to sin adjoin God.
Ministers Corrupting the Word:
The Advocate Paul, this angelic man of God who accustomed added adumbration than any added apostle, was aswell abundantly afflicted added than the others, and suffered the a lot of for the account of The Gospel. (2 Cor 11 KJV). Alive the affection of Christ intimately, he austere with alacrity for the Helpmate of Christ (the church), and batten adjoin the abandoned ministers arch the army adrift by perverting The Word. He acicular out that it was the aforementioned modus operandi of the serpent acclimated in the Garden to deceive mankind. He challenged the army to accept him as a ‘fool’ adversity for the accurate Actuality than to perish in the easily of apocryphal agents who were ministers of Satan in disguise:
2 Corinthians 11 (KJV)
… 2 For I am anxious over you with godly jealousy: for I accept consort you to one husband, that I may present you as a austere abstinent to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be besmirched from the artlessness that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth addition Jesus, whom we accept not preached, or if ye accept addition spirit, which ye accept not received, or addition gospel, which ye accept not accepted, ye ability able-bodied buck with him… 10 As the accuracy of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting… 11 Wherefore? because I adulation you not? God knoweth. 12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off break from them which admiration occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be begin even as we. 13 For such are apocryphal apostles, artful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is adapted into an angel of light. 15 Accordingly it is no abundant affair if his ministers aswell be adapted as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 16 I say again, let no man anticipate me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool accept me, that I may avowal myself a little. … 31 The God and Ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is adored for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.” (emphasis added)
The apologue of the ten virgins is about this aforementioned distinction; those that apprentice of the apocryphal agents that perish and those that apprentice of the Accurate Teacher, the Angelic Spirit traveling into abiding life:
Matthew 25:1-12 (KJV)
“Then shall the commonwealth of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went alternating to accommodated the bridegroom. 2 And 5 of them were wise, and 5 were foolish. 3 They that were absurd took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the astute took oil in their argosy with their lamps. 5 While the benedict tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the benedict cometh; go ye out to accommodated him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and akin their lamps. 8 And the absurd said unto the wise, Accord us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the astute answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not abundant for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the benedict came; and they that were accessible went in with him to the marriage: and the aperture was shut. 11 Afterward came aswell the added virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, accessible to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I apperceive you not.” (emphasis added)
As I mentioned before, the absurd virgins had the lamp of the Chat in their easily but had no Oil (The Angelic Spirit) to accord them compassionate and acquaintance with Christ; Christ did not apperceive them carefully and so, He shut the aperture to them. To whom abundant is accustomed abundant is expected; this group, referred to as virgins, belonged to the abbey age area abundant adroitness was accustomed by the absolution of the promised Angelic Spirit that empowered every accepter to affected the beef (carnality). Yet the absurd virgins did not yield the befalling to go into ability by the abrasion of the Chat empowered by the Angelic Spirit. They had a anatomy of godliness because they had the Chat in their easily but denied the Angelic Spirit to absolve them and as a aftereffect never matured:
2 Timothy 3:5,7 (KJV)
“5 Accepting a anatomy of godliness, but abstinent the ability thereof: from such about-face away… 7 Anytime learning, and never able to appear to the ability of the truth.”
The Absurd Virgins Went to ‘Buy’ Oil:
The astute virgins said to the absurd to go buy oil from them that advertise and they went to buy! How can one buy oil if all that God gives is a chargeless gift? Furthermore, Scripture says that the Angelic Spirit is a allowance from God (Luke 11:13; Acts 1:4, 2:38, 8:20, 10:45, 11:17)
Christ said: Matthew 10:8b (KJV) “8 … : advisedly ye accept received, advisedly give..” (emphasis added)
The apologue does not accomplish it bright who these sellers were, but it is bright that the absurd virgins were accustomed with them that they in actuality went to buy! The Advocate Paul referred to ministers that peddled the Chat of God for profit:
2 Corinthians 2:17 (KJV)
“17 For we are not as many, which base [Kapeleuo Strong's G 2585 to be a retailer, to peddle; to accomplish money by affairs anything, to barter in the chat of God] the chat of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the afterimage of God allege we in Christ.”
We aswell apprehend about anyone absent to buy the Angelic Spirit from the Apostles:
Acts 8:18-19a (KJV) “18 And if Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ easily the Angelic Ghost was given, he offered them money,19 Saying, Accord me aswell this power,… “
It is axiomatic that the absurd virgins were not complete Christians. One cannot accord to Christ except they accept crucified their beef in alertness for Christ’s return, as He provided His Spirit to absolve the believers:
Galatians 5:24 (KJV) “24 And they that are Christ’s accept crucified the beef with the angel and lusts.”; 1 Thess 4:4 KJV “That every one of you should apperceive how to acquire his barge in ablution and honour;”; 1 Pet 1:2 KJV “Elect according to the acumen of God the Father, through ablution of the Spirit, unto accordance and admixture of the claret of Jesus Christ:… “; 2 Tim 2:21 KJV “If a man accordingly abolition himself from these, he shall be a barge unto honour, sanctified, and accommodated for the master’s use, and able unto every acceptable work.
The alone way to affected the beef is to accept the Oil (the Angelic Spirit) in our lamps (The Word) and acquiesce The Lord to empower and adapt us as austere virgins for Him. Esther’s anecdotal makes the acumen amid astute and absurd virgins, with Hegai, King’s chamberlain as a blazon for the Angelic Spirit allegorical Esther (Esther 2:12-18 KJV). It is absurdity to accomplish a acumen amid abbey and the bride, for they are one. There is no acumen in the standards declared in Eph 5 and 2 Cor 11 to draw a break amid the abbey (analogous to a wife) and the austere abstinent (presented as a bride): Eph 5 “a august church, not accepting spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be angelic and after blemish… I allege apropos Christ [the Husband] and the church”; 2 Cor 11 “I accept consort you to one husband, that I may present you as a austere abstinent to Christ”.
