Man was originally destined by God to bear his invisible image, but the first man fell short of this exalted calling through his adventure with the trinity of this world i.e. lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Successive generations of men followed this path of despising the provision of God’s civilization called faith and falsely profited with disobedience until man degenerated into a state called flesh. (Genesis 6:3/Isa. 40:6)
Man remained without strength and the best of mankind became lighter than vanity (Rom. 5:6/Ps. 62:9). But through the richness of God’s mercy, the person of the Word was made flesh, God’s only begotten son was offered as a sacrificial lamb and the reign of sin and death was arrested. Eternity successfully interrupted time, which was later calibrated as B.C and A.D.
Today, humanity continues to be blessed by the great provisions guaranteed by the complete obedience of the Lord Jesus. Through him, we can expressly see the image of the Father (Jn. 14:9d/Heb. 1:3) and be conformed thereby.
Seasons of the Spirit continue to unfold, because the image of the Son MUST be reproduced among those destined to be as saved as God has ordained us to be. Many Christ-like natured lambs would soon be born (Jn. 3:5/1Pet. 1:23/Rev. 14:1), so the Father and Son would finally have an abiding place among the meek of the earth (Isa. 66:1-2/Matt. 5:3-11/Jn. 14:23/Heb. 2:10-12)
You are hereby invited to this great banquet where the father will be feasting his saints with what he once blessed his Son and the early apostles with.
