The New Testament analogy of the Fish Gate and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Part 2.
Friday, May 11, 2012
The next salvation ministry of God the Holy Spirit, the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
a. The hidden stage is the Church-age.
b. The Tribulation period which is the overt stage.
The CA is the most intensive hidden stage of the AC where every bel is a target of Satan and the KOD in contrast to the fact that in the OT dispensation, Christ and the line of Christ was the target.
The point is that once TLJC was seated at the right hand of the Father in the Church-age, every believer becomes a target of Satan.
Because right now, you have been baptized by the Holy Spirit and are in union with TLJC and represent Him personally to a lost and dying world.
Gal:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Since every bel is a target of Satan, divine provision for every believer is intensified, and this is why you now possess as an individual believer, certain things that believers did not possess before.
As a part of the mystery doctrine of the Church-age, you are an ambassador for Christ, there never were ambassadors in the Old Testament, that is for Christ only.
TLJC is in heaven, He’s absent from the earth, and you are an ambassador representing Him on the earth.
You are also you very own priest, every believer is a priest, and this was never true before, and you represents yourself before God.
Never before in history has every believer been an ambassador nor has he been a priest, but now that we possess these things.
Every believer is also in full time Christian service, and whatever you do that’s a part of your full-time Christian service.
But, in addition to that, every believer is in union with Christ and every believer is indwelt by Christ.
Every believer is also indwelt by God the Holy Spirit.
So, we have a brand new set of provisions, this is what we call intensified provisions for an intensified conflict.
We are all scattered out, and we are to get together and when we get together, if we get together, when we come to church, then .
He who plans to do evil, Men will call him a schemer.
At the moment of salvation God the Holy Spirit places every believer in union with Christ.
2CO 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new [spiritual] species. The old things have lost their power; behold, new things have come.”
