Every Pattern In the Church Uses God's Process, Which Is By Grace Through Faith, Leading Progressively To Holiness and Redemption


 
 

You are born again into the Church and out of the world so that you can grow. You grow as the Holy Spirit conforms you to the image of Christ, your Ministry in the Body of Christ. This is a process that goes from glory to glory. When everything is in complete unity with the Almighty Creator God's will and built according to God's Pattern as He gave it in Scripture, the Body and the Head (Jesus) will be joined as one totally complete man. This is the manifestation or the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

God's process is that He leads and we submit to that leading. The Holy Spirit flows and we yield to that flowing. God's process is tied to God's pattern and leads us into God's pattern. God's process and pattern lead us into the life of the coming age. The processes of this present evil age lead into death, destruction, and misery.

"I would much rather say that every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow creatures, and with itself. To be the one kind of creature is heaven: that is, it is joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state or the other."--CS Lewis

God has a process that applies to everything that He does in His people. Every single pattern of the true church operates by grace through faith. Grace is the power of the Almighty Creator God for righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Grace is accessed by faith--that is to say that grace is through faith. Romans 5:2 Faith comes by hearing. Hearing comes by God's utterance. Romans 10:17 God always is the first-mover in faith, and faith begins with God's leading. This is the essence of wisdom. To be fulfilled, you must find True Wisdom and True Love. To find True Wisdom and Love, you must find God. God is True love. True Love is God. 1 John 4:16-20 Jesus Christ is Wisdom. 1 Corinthians 1:30

God's process is by grace through faith. Romans 14:23 tells us simply that anything that is not of faith is sin. Faith comes from God. (James 1:17) Faith comes by hearing the word of God. (Romans 10:17) It is possible to read the Bible and not hear the word of God. (2 Corinthians 3:14) When you are born again, you are born again by grace through faith. It starts with God and finishes with a measure of holiness and redemption. From the moment of your new birth forward, every step you take toward the manifestation of the sons of God is by grace through faith. This is God's process. Each step you take in this walk in the Spirit is begun by God leading, you honoring God's voice, and God's faith coming and giving access to God's grace. Grace then does God's work through you as the you submit. The result is that God plants good seed into your heart, the ground of your heart is made receptive to the seed by the water of the Holy Spirit Matthew 13:18-24, and the seed yields holiness in your heart and you are set free (redeemed) to some degree. You are changed into the image and likeness of Jesus as you see the glory of the Lord as if looking in a mirror with the veil of the flesh taken away from our faces. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Concerning the fact that Christ is Wisdom, true Wisdom is given by God, and 1 Corinthians 1:30 tells us that God has made Christ our wisdom. Jesus Christ is True Wisdom. This Scripture also tells us that this Spiritual Wisdom, Who is Christ, consists of Righteousness, Holiness/Sanctification, and Redemption/Freedom from Sin. So, Jesus is our Rightoeusness. Jesus is our Holiness. Jesus is our Redemption. Righteousness, as already mentioned, is God doing His work in and through you by grace through faith. Righteousness is in the moment. Though righteousness is in the moment, it leads to holiness and redemption, which are permanent, ongoing, and building. Holiness is a change in what you are becoming in Christ. The term, in Christ, refers to Christ the Body joined to Christ the Head.

You are born again into the Church and out of the world so that you can grow. You grow as the Holy Spirit conforms you to the image of Christ, your Ministry in the Body of Christ. This is a process that goes from glory to glory. When everything is in complete unity with God's will and built according to God's Pattern as He gave it in Scripture, the Body and the Head (Jesus) will be joined as one totally complete man. This is the manifestation or the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

One other important thing: since Jesus ascended, He has divided Himself among the members of His Body. The Body of Christ is really Christ in a very real way. Yes, there are many lies about the Body of Christ, but these lies are not reality. Lies keep us in bondage. Especially the lies concerning the Body of Christ keep us in bondage, even though Jesus has already paid the price of our freedom. Lord, give us eyes to see reality and ears to hear Your voice of Truth.

Wisdom as a Process--This is the Process of Being Built Up In Love:

Let us first establish that God does all the work. Righteousness and Holiness are Free Gifts (Grace) from God. Righteousness is Love. It is True Love. True Love is the fulfillment of God's Law. Holiness is stability in that Love. Righteousness and Holiness are part of salvation. Even the faith that gives access to Grace is a Free Gift from God--it is God's faith, not our own.

 

You are born again into the Church and out of the world so that you can grow. You grow as the Holy Spirit conforms you to the image of Christ, your Ministry in the Body of Christ. This is a process that goes from glory to glory. When everything is in complete unity with God's will and built according to God's Pattern as He gave it in Scripture, the Body and the Head (Jesus) will be joined as one totally complete man. This is the manifestation or the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

Wisdom goes from doing right things right by God's Spirit to being set free from bondage and entering into ever-increasing stability of mind and action, and then going on to final complete fulfillment, which is total redemption.

Wisdom is the principle thing, therefore get wisdom. (Prov 4:7) The Scripture tells us that God has made Christ to be Wisdom to us. Christ is Wisdom. Without Christ, there is no Wisdom. Not only this, but from a practical standpoint, wisdom consists of righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. (1Cor 1:30) Jesus is the Way. Righteousness, sanctification, and redemption are the three parts of the Way that build on each other.

  1. Righteousness is in the moment. This is the righteousness that is by grace through faith. Righteousness is the work that God does through you by His faith and grace.
  2. Sanctification is progressive. By the righteousness that God does through you, He changes what you are, which is sanctification. Sanctification or holiness is the forming of Christ fully in you. The battle is now mainly for the mind. Holiness is stability and is what you are becoming.
  3. Redemption is being set free from slavery. Until we are born again, we are in total slavery to Satan. We are dead to God. When we are born again, the Life of Christ is planted in us, and we begin a journey of being set free. So, redemption is progressive.

If you are walking in the Spirit and keeping pace with the Spirit, you are progressing toward the fullness of having Christ in you and you being in Christ, in His Body.It cannot be separated from the Body of Christ of Christ the Head. When it is complete, it is the full maturity and unity of the Body of Christ and Christ, the Head of the Body.

God has a process to have us grow up into Christ. God's way is through the Church, the true Body of Christ. God's process is by the Holy Spirit. It is by the free gift of wisdom.

The Church is both the mechanism by which God does this work and the finishing of the work. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. Revelation 3:12
