• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

The Fullness of Christ and the Fullness of God

The Fullness of Christ 约翰福音-John
1:15-16 约翰为祂作见证,喊着说,这就是我曾说,那在我以后来的,成了在我以前的,因祂原是比我先的。从祂的丰满里我们都领受了,而且恩上加恩;
John testified concerning Him and cried out, saying, This was He of whom I said, He who is coming after me has become ahead of me, because He was before me. For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.

以弗所书-Ephesians
1:23 召会是祂的身体,是那在万有中充满万有者的丰满。
Which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.
4:13 直到我们众人都达到了信仰上并对神儿子之完全认识上的一,达到了长成的人,达到了基督丰满之身材的度量,
Until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,


The Fullness of God

以弗所书-Ephesians
3:19 并认识基督那超越知识的爱,使你们被充满,成为神一切的丰满。
And to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God.
歌罗西书-Colossians
1:19 因为一切的丰满,乐意居住在祂里面,
For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell
2:9-10 因为神格一切的丰满,都有形有体的居住在基督里面,你们在祂里面也得了丰满。祂是一切执政掌权者的元首;
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, And you have been made full in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority.

The Bible mentioned about the fullness of Christ 3 times: once in John, and twice in Ephesians. The Bible also mentioned the fullness of God 3 times: once in Ephesians, and twice in Colossians. Two out of three times when the fullness of God is mentioned, the Bible also mentions about us being filled with Christ as the fullness of Christ.

Here we can assert some profound truth: Christ is the mystery and fullness of God, and we corporately as the church is the mystery and fullness of Christ. Christ was God manifested in the flesh, and the church was the great mystery of godliness, expressing and manifesting  divinity through humanity in the flesh.
