Complete in Christ…

Here is the end goal…

to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me. (Colossians 1:27-29 NASB)

To present every man complete in Christ…

teleios: having reached its end, i.e. complete, by ext. perfect

Is it possible for you to be in Christ but not be complete in Christ?

No it is not, in your new self you are complete but this is not what the Holy Spirit is saying here through the Apostle Paul…

He – the Holy Spirit – is here speaking of the time when not only will every man be saved (world wide salvation) but every member of the Church who endures to the end after that time will be presented to Christ complete, i.e. mature, fully developed and perfect…

Paul strove towards this goal with all the energy which Christ so mightily worked in him…

Paul knew that Christ in him was the hope of glory and also his strength in all things…

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 NASB)

As we surrender to Christ He lives through us to complete His will in our lives…

As we align with His will we begin to experience His power flowing through us…

We are not going to experience His power flowing through us if we are not surrendered to allowing Him to live through us…

It really is that simple…

If we allow Him to live through us then He will…

If we do not then He will not…

He will not force us to complete His will against our will…

He is waiting for us to submit to Him living through us before He will work tirelessly through us to complete His…

And what is His will?

To present every man – every single human being on the planet – complete in Christ – that there will come a day where every one stands together on this earth and glorifies the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and acknowledges Jesus as the Greatest Name, the Highest Name and the only Name given among men by which they must be saved…

And then with those from that number who remain until the end (i.e. do not die or are not martyred) and any more born who come to know Him, to transform that company into perfection in unity and in sharing and in self sacrifice – in putting others needs before our own – so that His Body is ready to receive Him as its Head upon His return to earth to reign – that we will be so surrendered that when He judges the world we will be in complete agreement with Him and an extension of Himself as He does so…

Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? (I Corinthians 6:2a NASB)

To execute on them the judgment written; This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 149:9 NASB)

and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete. (2 Corinthians 10:6 NASB)

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
