In 1 and 2 Samuel we can see that the Triune God
with His embodiment and redemption
was fully involved with bringing forth Samuel and David
so that the kingdom of God might be brought in;
it is crucial for us to see that the Triune God is involved with us today,
operating in us to accomplish His will, fulfill His purpose,
and satisfy the desire of His heart.
There is no other way to reach the high peak of God’s eternal economy,
the reality of the Body of Christ, except by praying;
our becoming the overcomers as the reality of the Body of Christ
to be the bride of Christ will close this age, the age of the church,
and will bring Christ as the King of glory back
to take, possess, and rule over this earth
with His overcomers in the kingdom age.
Through His incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection,
Christ, who was already the Son of God,
became the Son of God in a new way–the firstborn Son-
designated as the Son of God with humanity;
in Romans 1:3-4 Christ, the Son of God, is the prototype,
whereas in 8:29 the many brothers are those
who have been “mass-produced” from the prototype
and, by being saved in life, will be conformed
to the image of the firstborn Son.
God’s economy is to work Himself into us
so that we may experience a metabolic process
of spiritual digestion and assimilation that produces transformation
as a gradual and intrinsic metabolic change
in our natural life with the divine life;
this is for the building up of the Body of Christ
to consummate the New Jerusalem.
