Filling the Earth with His Glory.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isa. 53:5-6).
Every sin that man has been or will be guilty of has been whipped clean...forgiven...by the finished work of of Jesus' death and resurrection. Jesus by His death on the Cross bore the sin of "ALL". Until we have a proper appreciation and understanding of God’s accomplishment through the finished work of Jesus, we can never be kingdom believers walking in the reality of His life in us. We must have more than just an superficial understanding of the plan of God for humanity.
Man’s problem was sin. God took care of sin through Jesus. Man's downfall post-cross is his preoccupation with "sin consciousness" rather than "God consciousness"! Sin is not a problem with God because He has dealt with it through Jesus...sin is a problem for man in that it robs him of "God consciousness", and gives him a feeling of being separated from God. If we were more God conscious we would experience living in the presence of God and in fellow-shipping with Him our "sin consciousness would be dead.
Romans 3:23 says that “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” The glory of God is to fill the temple of God and PEOPLE are His temple...nor buildings called churches. Man was created to be a vessel to contain the fullness of everything that God is. We were not created to be full of self, sin, lusts of the flesh or the pride of life that "sin consciousness" glorifies and magnifies. We were created to be the full expression of His glory and to manifest His kingdom in the earth to glorify God.
There are two sources of life available to us as people to draw out life from, the first Adam or the last Adam. The natural carnal man receives his source of life from the first Adam and lives being "sin conscious", even if he is a believer. The spiritual man receives his life from the second Adam...Jesus...and is "God conscious" manifesting the compassion, love and grace of God as the Community of the Redeemed to the Community of Humanity.
