Wednesday, November 30, 2016

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God (Ephesians 3:10).

Do you know there’s  something  about  us,  the new  creation,  that  the  angels  can’t  get  over? The  angels  are  glorious  and  wonderful  beings.  They’re excellent  in  glory  and  mighty  in  power,  but  they’re amazed  at  what  God  has  done  with  us,  in  us,  and  for us,  because  as  glorious  as  they  are,  God  doesn’t  live  in them,  and  as  “unworthy”  as  we  were,  He  gave  us  a  new life  and  made  us  His  living  tabernacles.  That  remains a  mystery  to  the  angels;  they  don’t  understand  it.  And guess what? God chose us to explain it to them.

The  Church  is  to  make  the  manifold  wisdom of  God  known  to  them.  That’s  why  each  time  we preach  about  Jesus,  and  about  the  Holy  Ghost,  the angels  love  to  listen.  They  enjoy  it;  they  want  to  know more  about  the  salvation  that  Jesus  brought  to  man, because  it’s  something  that  they  only  know  from  the scriptures.  They  don’t  have  an  actual  experience  of  it. They  don’t  know  what  it’s  like;  so,  they  hear  it  from  us. That’s  what  the  Apostle  Paul  alludes  to  in  our  opening verse  when  he  says,  “To  the  intent  that  now  unto  the principalities  and  powers  in  heavenly places might be known  by  the  church  the  manifold  wisdom  of  God” (Ephesians 3:10).

It  is,  indeed,  a  great  privilege  and  honour  for  us as  the  Church  of  Jesus  Christ  to  explain  God’s  wisdom and  mysteries  to  the  angels.  Now,  if  that’s  part  of  our responsibility,  it  means  we  have  to  know  the  Word.  We have  to  live  in  the  Word  and  live  out  the  Word.  In  other words,  you  have  to  be  the  expression  of  the  Word  of God;  and  that’s  real  Christianity.  It’s  the  expression  of God’s  Word;  the  revelation  of  His  righteousness  and His personality. We’re His epistles.

2  Corinthians  3:2  says,  “Ye  are  our  epistle  written in  our  hearts,  known  and  read  of  all  men….”  The epistle  of  Christ  is  the  Word  of  Christ.  The  Word  of Christ  is  the  Word  of  God.  So,  we’re  the  epistles  of Christ  in  flesh,  which  means  we’re  the  Word  of  God  in flesh,  just  like  Jesus.  True  Christianity  is  the  outworking of the Word in me and in you. Hallelujah!

Prayer:

Dear  Father,  I  thank  you  for  your Word  is  my  life  and  it  makes  my heart rejoice. Your commandment is  pure,  enlightening  the  soul. Your  Word  is  more  to  be  desired than  fine  gold,  and  it’s  sweeter than  honey  and  the  honeycomb. As  I  meditate  and  yield  to  your Word,  my  life  is  transformed from  glory  to  glory,  in  Jesus’ Name. Amen.
