We In Him, And He In Us
Jesus and the Father are as one yet Philip asked for Jesus to show who the Father is and He replied that He was in the Father and the Father was in Him (John 14:8-11). Then Jesus explained if we believe on Him not only would we be able to do the works which He had done, but greater works since He was about to go to His Father! (John 14:12-21) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him…… (1 John 3:22-24).
By the shed blood of Christ is the many member church established in the earth (Acts 20:28). There is a mystery that has been hid from ages and generations but has now been made plain to the saint’s, which is Christ in us that is the hope of glory! Paul tells us in his ministry if we continue grounded and settled in the faith that we may preach to present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. (Colossians 1:23-29). If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; 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: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
Christ is the TRUE VINE and we are THE BRANCHES. (John 15:1-12).
