Christ Our Life & Pattern

To discern the mystery of Christ fully, we must have revelation of Him as the New Covenant Pattern, because the New Covenant is all about the life of Christ in us. This is the subject matter of this article.

Logos, Life, & Light,The

I have been surveying the New Testament scriptures for passages which communicate that God’s intention in the New Covenant is that “the Spirit gives life” in all of our life, rather than in sacralized (set-apart) special religious activities. New Covenant Worship in Spirit and Truth is concerned with the whole of life – not in fragmented sacralized (set-apart) special activities at special times in special places. In fact, God desires our time and place of worship to be “a living

“Christ Is All”

“I will give You as a covenant.” Isaiah 42:6 The covenant Isaiah refers to is what we know as the “New Covenant”. God’s New Covenant – by which He made the Old Covenant obsolete (Hebrews 8:13), does not consist in the letters of written words, but is embodied in a Person – Jesus Christ, the Living Word – “Christ Jesus, became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” (1 Corinthians 1:30) “Christ is all.” (Colossians 3:11)

Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus

“ … though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 9:21 Preface I find “The Law of Christ”[1] to be an intriguing, important, and immeasurable topic. I have written about it elsewhere[2]; and plan to write more on it in the future. In this present article, I will attempt to briefly establish a Christ-centered New Covenant perspective of the Law of Christ. Let me begin by saying I believe that a particular verse

Realm of Christ, The

19“In accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 … He (Father God) brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave

Apostles’ Teaching, The

Preface “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer.” Acts 2:42[1] This verse tells us that following the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, the Christ Followers of the primitive church “continually devoted” themselves to “the apostles’ teaching and fellowship”, as well as to the breaking of bread and prayer”. I have written on the breaking of bread and prayer in other articles.[2] This article deals with “the apostles’ teaching and

What is the New Covenant All About?

What is the essence of the New Covenant? The most significant scriptural reference to the New Covenant is Jeremiah 31:31-34. Its significance is attested to in that the writer to the Hebrews, who was focused on distinguishing the New Covenant from the Old Covenant, chose to quote Jeremiah verbatim in Hebrews 8:8-12. Let’s look the passage in the Amplified Bible translation: 8 “However, God finds fault with them[1] [showing its inadequacy] when He says, “Behold, the days will come, says the

Seeing from God’s Point of View

 “We are asking God that you may see things, as it were, from his point of view by being given spiritual insight and understanding.” Colossians 1:9, J.B. Phillips Translation  “God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7  God’s point of view is primarily internal – not external. God considers the heart – not external activities. From God’s point of view, what does it mean to

Eternal Gospel & Eternal Covenant, The

“I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations.”[1] Isaiah 42:6 In the midst of this Messianic prophecy in Isaiah,[2] we see disclosed the fact that the Father has given Jesus Christ as a covenant – specifically, Jesus Christ personified (incarnated) the New Covenant. As with the Old Covenant, the New Covenant is between God

Revelation & Relationship

The Foundation I Corinthians 3:10-11  10 According to the grace of God, which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. No Christian would deny that Christ is the Foundation of the Church. After all, Paul said it was
