That We Might Be Filled!

Ephesians 3:17-19 says “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” A dimension is a measurable extent of some kind, such as length, breadth, depth, or height. But when dealing with God, he is immeasurable, unsearchable, and his ways are past finding out, yet it is Christ who has given us an understanding in Himself that all who come unto Him will be introduced to the Father, and be filled with the fullness of God by the Holy Spirit. God reveals himself in three dimensions: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, the Trinity. Man who was made in the image of God is also a tripartite being of Spirit, Soul, and Body. God has always revealed himself through humanity as being one God who is comprised of the Spirit of God, the Soul, or the Fatherhood of God being that of the will, and the Body, by which The Son of God was made visible to the world. Take for instance, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Shem represents the spiritual part of humanity, those who have given us religion (The Jews, and Arabians). Ham represents the body of humanity, that which was used to build and to create (The Egyptians, Chinese, Aztecs, Mayans). Japheth represents the soul of humanity, those who contributed their mind as Philosophers, and great thinkers in the earth, that which deals with the Psyche (Greeks, Italians, Caucasians, Germans). But notice all these make up one humanity: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, or Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Peter, James, and John. Outter court, inner court, Holy of Holies. 1st heaven, 2nd heaven, 3rd heaven. Faith, hope, and Charity. The Law, The Prophets, and the Writings. God created us in his image as a body, soul, and spirit being. Gen.1:26 says “And God said, Let us make man in our image, (Spirit) after our likeness: (Soul) and let them have dominion (through the Body) over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Adam was made in the image of God, the image of God is the Spirit of God. Adam lost that image when he sinned (the Spirit of God). Adam still had the breath of life; but his soul would now degenerate in death. So, everyone that was born after Adam sinned was made in Adam’s image. This is why in salvation we must regain the image of Christ, who is God: Romans 8:29 says “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” It is through humanity that God is revealing Himself: Colossians 1:19, and 2:9 “For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell…For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Bodily in this verse is talking about the church which is his body: Ephesians 1:22-23 says “And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” The church is the fullness of Christ!!!! God wants to reveal the Son through you to the world, so they can be introduced to God the Father by the Holy Spirit.”
