Default Bump!

Thank you little elmer for linking to this one again. There's much to be gleaned from it, just wanted to bump it again.

In 1 John we read that the spirit of antiChrist (666, or the number of a man) is the spirit that doesn't confess Jesus Christ come in flesh.
Natural man doesn't want God to rule in our flesh. Keep God at a distance, on a cloud, beyond the stars, whatever.. just don't let Him sit on the Throne of man's world: the heart!

God is Love. He that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Let us all walk in the Spirit which was spread to the world at Calvary; in Love, which is the greatest of all!

"For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world." John 6.33

"I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world." John 6.51

Mankind is yet groping about in the darkness of the carnal mind, knowing not that He is standing right there in the shadows, were their eyes opened to see.

Yet He has appointed a day (glory!) when His light shall shine forth and the plan shall be completed as the apostle says, "For God has allowed us to know the secret of His plan, and it is this: He purposed long ago in His sovereign will that all human history should be consummated in Christ, that everything that exists in heaven or earth should find its perfection and fulfillment in Him. In Christ we have been given an inheritance, since we were destined for this, by the One who works out all His purposes according to the design of His own will" (Eph. 1:9-11, Phillips).

When Christ ascended on high after His resurrection, He led many captives out of the prison house and also set forth His great purpose: "Now He that ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens that He might fill all things (Eph. 4:9-10). The message is clear – redemption includes the complete transformation of the entire universe (all heavens) and all that is within it so that God in Christ shall fill all things. There shall not be left one corner of this vast universe, nor one creature in it, where He shall not be Lord and King. Everything everywhere shall be restored to the beautiful harmony and order of the love of God. Indeed, He shall fill all things that God may be all in all!
