THE ECONOMY OF THE TRIUNE GOD
My burden in all the messages I am giving here is to share with you something of God’s economy. Let us read 1 Timothy chapter 1, verses 3 through 7: “That you might charge certain ones not to teach different things nor to give heed to myths and unending genealogies, which produce questionings rather than God’s economy, which is in faith. But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and out of a good conscience and out of unfeigned faith; from which things some, having misaimed, have turned aside to vain talking, desiring to be teachers of the law.”
God’s economy and God’s building both depend on the Tree of Life. In Genesis Chapter 1 there is a full record of God’s creation. On the sixth day God created a man in His own image and then committed man with His own authority (v. 26). Image means “expression.” Something in your image is the expression of yourself. God created man in His own image for the purpose of having man as His very expression in this universe and on this earth. God is hidden and invisible, yet God has a heart’s desire to express Himself through man. God did not create a thousand men at one time, but He created just one man. All the descendants of that one man were included in that one man. God created a corporate man in His image to express Himself, so man is the very image, the very expression, of God.

This series of brief messages on life and service are being given for the purpose of training the believers. You need to pray much to get yourself into these messages, and even to get these messages into you. Merely to repeat what is here in black and white will be a kind of dead speaking of knowledge according to the dead letter. These messages may be considered as groceries, which you need to cook in a living way through much, much prayer. You have to pray yourself into the message, pray yourself into a burden, and pray that the message will become your personal message in a living way. These are just the materials, but you have to cook them. You have to labor on all these points, and you have to pray until you yourself get into these messages, making them your own messages. Then you will speak not my message but your message, and you will speak out from your being with much exercise of your spirit. Then whatever you speak will be living, will be personal, and will be with the living impact. I do hope that we will not carry out this training in a light way but in a way full of prayer, full of the Spirit, and full of life.
In this first lesson on life, we want to speak about the creation of man. We need to read all the verses cited in the Scripture reading above and be impressed with the main points of these verses.
This book contains eight chapters on the various aspects of the Kingdom in relation to the believers and two chapters on the appearance and the manifestation of the Kingdom.
In this book we will consider the matter of the Kingdom of God in a specific and systematic way. All the above verses concern the Kingdom. The Kingdom is the center of the gospel. The New Testament even says that the kingdom is the gospel. In Luke 4:43 the Lord Jesus said, “I must announce the gospel of the kingdom of God.” The sense in the Greek here is that to announce the gospel is to announce the kingdom of God. Hence, this phrase may be rendered “announce the Kingdom of God as the gospel.” The Kingdom of God is the gospel of God. In the Gospel of Matthew the kingdom of God is called “the Kingdom of the heavens”; elsewhere it is called the “heavenly kingdom” (2 Timothy 4:18).
Regrettably, the gospel preached in Christianity today rarely mentions the Kingdom of God. When it does mention the Kingdom of God, it mentions only the name without explaining what the Kingdom of God actually is. For this reason many people know the Kingdom of God in name but not in its reality—they do not know what the Kingdom of God truly is. Today when many people preach the gospel, they preach the “heavenly mansion” as the central and most important matter. This is truly ridiculous! Read More...
In this series of messages we want to see something of the land of Canaan, which is the type of the all-inclusive Christ. We also want to see how the city and the temple, which were built on this land of Canaan, are types of the fullness of Christ, which is His Body, the Church. Thus, what we will consider is the all-inclusive Christ, out of which and upon which the fullness of Christ, the Church, is built. Remember well that it is not just Christ and the Church but the all-inclusive Christ and the fullness of Christ which is His Body, the Church. Read More...
The verses listed above show us God’s eternal purpose, God’s eternal plan. Everyone needs to know God’s eternal plan. If as a young person you are somewhat thoughtful, you do not need to be a great philosopher to eventually ask questions such as, “What is the meaning of my life in the world?” and, “For what purpose was I born?” If you consider even further, you might also ask, “Why do the heavens and the earth exist? Why does the universe exist?” If you give a little thought to these matters, you will discover that the meaning of human life cannot be found in clothing, food, housing, or transportation. You will also conclude that the meaning of the heavens, the earth, and all things cannot be focused merely on human living. These conclusions, however, reveal only what the meaning of the universe and of human life is not. It is difficult to determine a direct answer to the questions concerning the true meaning of the universe and the true meaning of human life.
The Heavenly Vision Banners: The governing vision in the Bible is the vision of God’s economy—the vision of the Triune God working Himself into His chosen and redeemed people in order to saturate their entire being with the Divine Trinity for the producing and building up of the Body of Christ consummating in the New Jerusalem. We need to see that the all-inclusive Christ is the reality of all the positive things in the universe, and as the Spirit of reality, He makes the untraceable riches of all that He is real to us, guiding us into Himself as the divine reality. We need to see the vision of the Body of Christ—the corporate Christ, the intrinsic significance of the church, a constitution of the Triune God with the believers in Christ, the means for God to carry out His administration, and the universal church expressed in many localities as local churches. We need to see that God desires all His people to be Nazarites, those who separate themselves unto God to be absolutely, utterly, and ultimately for God, that is, to be for nothing other than God—loving God, seeking God, living God, and being constituted with God to bless others with God for the expression of God.
