The Final Gospel centers in the Inner Man----Christ in You
' ... Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you,
and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ
in my flesh for His body's sake,
which is the church whereof I am made a minister,
according to the dispensation of God
which is given to me for you,
to fulfil the word of God;
Even the mystery which hath been hid
from ages and from generations,
but now is made manifest to His saints:
To whom God would make known
what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Whom we preach,
warning every man,
and teaching every man in all wisdom;
that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:'
There is no doubt when God reveals his Word to us he is actually revealing himself since God is the Word. Being born again of the incorruptible "seed" of the Word of God, which brings forth a tree of life which we are allowed to partake of. Understanding this person who now is our new life is critical to being able to let him continue to work through the Church. This all comes about as we look into his "mirror" and seeing what "manner" of man we are. For we all with unveiled faces are beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord are being changed into that same image from Glory, to Glory. Our actions are based only on who we see our self's to be.
