Progressive Revelation.

     
   
  Progressive revelation, as used by the Author of Hebrews is the progressive process that the Lord used to reveal truth in the Old Testament. The Young’s literal translation of Hebrews 1:1 is the same as the Greek original, in that the word ` In` is at the beginning. This is important as it gives the emphasis that God spoke, it also gives the emphasis on how God spoke. 
Hebrews 1:1 reads, “In many portions, and many ways, God of old having spoken to the fathers by the prophets.”
     There were times when God spoke to His prophets through dreams, times when He used angels, times when He used symbolic actions, times when He used physical phenomena, and times when He used direct communication. 
      The spiritual concepts have become even more sophisticated. They have to do with living and how to worship God, and the inner motivation for worshiping.  
    With these examples we can see how God’s truth progresses from a fiery smoking mountain gradually becoming more and more spiritual, and towards inner motivation for worship and Obedience. Obedience and disobedience also affected the revelation that God gave to the people at particular times. That is why some of the prophets speak about spiritual edification, some about judgement, and some about social responsibility. 
     We can clearly see the Lords progressive revelation in the thirty-nine Old Testament books.

The Inclusive Of The Gospel !

   The words of Jesus are the words of God. He had the Spirit, not by measure, as the prophets did in progressive revelation, but in all its fullness. Everlasting life can only be had by faith in Him, and this way exclusively is obtained. Those people, who do not have faith in the Son of God, will not see eternal life or God’s salvation. There present condition is that God’s wrath is resting them. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. Works, religion, or church membership do not secure or qualify a person a place in Heaven. Being a moral person doesn't. Neither does being a practising Jew. The message of salvation is exclusively by faith in Jesus Christ, the final revelation of God in these last days. The message is unpopular. You must be born again to be part of Gods family.

The Reason God Created Man!

     This is a choice that each must make for themselves, when the holy spirit reveals this truth to them, through believers, or the word directly. When we come to Christ and receive his spirit and his life within us, we are born again by the seed of the second Adam.  His life and his character have been divinely invested in us who believe by the spirit of God . That includes his victory over sin, death and Satan. That is the free gift of salvation through faith and grace. Salvation does not come through the law, or theological knowledge, but through Christ who has fulfilled the law for mankind.  When we come and receive his Lordship in our lives, he gives us the free gift of salvation, and we become the children of God, born again of the second Adam. Our task through the spirit is now to know God, and his word ,and subdue  Satan, the original purpose of God creating us.
To sum up, where the first Adam failed, the last Adam did not fail in subduing and overcoming Satan. It is therefore now possible for mankind to achieve his purpose, where the first Adam did not, through faith in the last Adam, Jesus.

The New Covenant ❦


The relationship of the church to the New Covenant is kept quite until the apostle Paul received the revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ that the believing gentiles partake of the spiritual blessings which God promised as part of the New Covenant, as seen in Ephesians 3:2-9.
     Ephesians 3:2-9 reads, “ if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you; how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words, by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ; which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, whereof I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power. To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ.”
