• 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 mingling of divinity and humanity

Christ the God-Man

  • The Son was, is, and will be the God the Creator
  • The Son possesses the complete Godhead and full divinity
  • In His divinity, the Son is the sole Son of God from eternity past to eternity future
  • In His incarnation, Christ brought divinity into humanity as the Son of man
  • In His human living, Christ lived out the divine life through human virtues
  • In His resurrection, Christ became the life-giving Spirit, and His humanity was uplifted so Christ became the firstborn Son of God in His humanity

Church the corporate God-men

  • In creation, God made man in His image, and according to His likeness
  • To Abraham, God promised Him countless offsprings and the good land
  • To the children of Israel, God redeemed them out of Egypt and led them to the good land
  • In judicial redemption, God sent Christ to save the gentiles who believes
  • In regeneration, the believers, Christ regenerates their spirits, lives in them, and sanctify them for their organic salvation and maturity
  • The believers, possessing the life of Christ, are the many sons of God and brothers of Christ
  • All the called and saved believers across time and space are aggregated as the universal church

Join in life

  • Joining in life indicates that men may take Christ as the source for life growth and the supply for nutrients.
  • Human living may no longer rely on earthly materials and human flesh.

Mingle in nature

  • Mingling in nature indicates that men may start to be transformed into Christ’s image, having the same mind, love, and heart, and sharing the same thoughts, burdens, and emotions.
  • God dwells in men, and men abides in God as mutual abode.

Incorporate in person

  • Incorporation in person indicates that men may fully and completely become the same as God in life, nature, and person. Full indicates the level of such incorporation, and complete indicates that such incorporation includes spirit, soul, and body.
  • God is dispensed into man and become part of humanity, and men are incorporated into God and become part of divinity

God went through a process to become Man, to live with men, and to save men for laws in righteousness and for life in grace. Men also went through a journey of creation, redemption, regeneration, and transformation to attain God as life, nature, and person. The two entities will dwell mutually, love as Husband and Bride, move in one accord as the Head and the Body, incorporate as one person and one entity, and ultimately built into one glorious New Jerusalem.
