So that God may be all in all. . .

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Paull, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. So that God may be all in all. . .

    I have a question concerning 1 Cr. 15. More specifically verses 1 Cr. 15: 24-28.

    1Cr 15:24 Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

    1Cr 15:25 For he must reign, until he hath put all enemies under his feet.

    1Cr 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

    My question is what do you view this state of "all in all" to be. Do you feel as if we would still exist as separate spiritual entities, or does this refer to a merging with God? Do you feel that there is some other meaning to this passage?

    Thank you for your thoughts. :)
     
  2. Doesn't this mean that at this point God will be in and of everyone that exists?
     
  3. Wow this one realy makes Me have to work hard to think and causes the Anger Sharks :fish: :fish: :fish: :fish: to

    swim in My head!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just kidding, ( and the closest things I could find to sharks) :D



    But serriously 1 Cor 15:23-25,26,28 ---I think speaks of
    Authority and rule, in the context that:

    1) Christ is The First raised from the dead

    2) We will be raised up with Him, at the end

    3) The Kingdom of Heaven on earth as it is now,
    will be raised up to God in Heaven.

    4) Christ will establish a new Kingdom of Heaven --
    and rule here on earth ---The Millenium rule!!!!

    5) Then during the 1,000 years all enemies are under
    His feet, but at the end of the 1,000 years when they
    come to fight Christ again, proving their hatred, they
    will be cast into the final death of non existence, when
    even death is swallowed up.

    6) And then when the Final New Heavens is made to come
    to pass ---Christ, and the Trinity will Unite As Equil in
    Presence as we see them, and be All in All, and we will
    not see or experience in part, what we will now see in
    Full ----The Complete Trinity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Of cource I could be all wrong, but I see divisions, and
    implied divisions within the verses mentioned ---which
    span time, until We see the Full and Complete Trinity
    Shine before Us, Forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Unless My memory fails Me, and there are other Qualifying
    passages elsewhere???????????


    May Christ Richly Bless Them Who Truly Love Him, Amen.:bible:

    Mike. :D
     
  4. There should be a coma after the first 'all'

    The very same expression occurs in 1 Corinthians 12:6 and Ephesians 1:23 , and means absolutely no merger.
     
  5. I don't see a merge as we will see The Father and the Son refered to as seperate entities as late as Rev 21 in the New Jerusalem. SOmetimes I like to comapre translations in order to bring out the full " flavor of a text".

    1Co 15:28

    (GNT)ὅταν δὲ ὑποταγῇ αὐτῷ τὰ πάντα, τότε καὶ αὐτὸς ὁ υἱὸς ὑποταγήσεται τῷ ὑποτάξαντι αὐτῷ τὰ πάντα, ἵνα ᾖ ὁ Θεὸς τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν.
    (GW) But when God puts everything under Christ's authority, the Son will put himself under God's authority, since God had put everything under the Son's authority. Then God will be in control of everything.

  7. And perhaps a few commentiaries:
    John Wesley's Explanitory Notes On the Bible:
    1Co 15:28 - The Son also shall be subject - Shall deliver up the mediatorial kingdom. That the three - one God may be all in all - All things, (consequently all persons,) without any interruption, without the intervention of any creature, without the opposition of any enemy, shall be subordinate to God. All shall say, "My God, and my all." This is the end. Even an inspired apostle can see nothing beyond this.

    Jammesom, Fausse and Brown commentairie:
    1Co 15:28 -
    Son ... himself ... subject — not as the creatures are, but as a Son voluntarily subordinate to, though co-equal with, the Father. In the mediatorial kingdom, the Son had been, in a manner, distinct from the Father. Now, His kingdom shall merge in the Father’s, with whom He is one; not that there is thus any derogation from His honor; for the Father Himself wills "that all should honor the Son, as they honor the Father" (
    Joh_5:22, Joh_5:23; Heb_1:6).
    God ... all in all — as Christ is all in all (
    Col_3:11; compare Zec_14:9). Then, and not till then, "all things," without the least infringement of the divine prerogative, shall be subject to the Son, and the Son subordinate to the Father, while co-equally sharing His glory. Contrast Psa_10:4; Psa_14:1. Even the saints do not fully realize God as their "all" (Psa_73:25) now, through desiring it; then each shall feel, God is all to me.
     
  8. The People's New Testament Commentairies:
    When all things have been subjected. When the world is subdued to Christ.
    Then shall the son also himself be subjected. Then, as his work is done, he will give up the kingdom to the Father (
    1Co_15:24). Then Christ will give up the seals of office.

    Albert Barnes notes on the Bible:
    That God may be all in all - That God may be supreme; that the Divinity, the Godhead, may rule; and that it may be seen that he is the Sovereign over all the universe. By the word "God" (ὁ Θεὸςho Theos), Whitby and Hammond, I think correctly, understand the Godhead, the Divine Nature, the Divinity, consisting of the three persons, without respect to any special office or kingdom.
     
  9. So, let me make sure I understand what you are saying; you are saying that you believe that the trinity will not unite/merge at this point? The logos (word), the holy spirit (present in everyone at this point), and the father, but rather we will continue to exist as separate, yet connected entities under God?

    This seems to be the same thing that I see Boanerges saying.
     
  10. There is no viable scriptural evidence that suggests a merger. Besides the Three are already One.
     
  11. I believe, as far as my understanding on this verse and others has arrived, that the trinity will not merge at this point, and that we will continue to exist as separate, yet connected entities under God, you are correct. (Unless your meaning of connected is different than mine :))
    The unity though, has well been established. Are the mansions not many in Father's house? (John 14:2)

    May I ask Paull:
    Is it a thought you have had for much time? What initiated it?
    And do you ascertain some scripture to substantiate it?

    Much thanks
     
  12. I'm sorry if I suggested a merger, but rather here on earth,

    with their seperate missions at this time, such as the

    conviction of the Spirit working behind the schenes and all,

    seems to be a good example of Behind the Schene activities,

    we, now having been saved take for granted.

    I think I was trying to say, All in All, in All full Glory revealed

    and Seen Bright and shining and all!!!!!!!!!!


    And I probably worded what I am thinking wrong?????????


    There will be no need, for hidden things, or workings behind the

    schenes in the future, and We shall Behold and See the Full

    Glory of the trinity, unveiled before us, in the Fulness of Their

    Glory!!!!!!!!!!!!


    That is what I think I was trying to say.


    Because who would deny things are not fully and clearly seen

    today, as today is a shadow, of the Fullness we Will see

    tomorrow, when there are no more "Tares" among us????????
     
  13. to my best knowledge "all in all" meaning
    so that God becomes the source of everything
