THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST
-Colossians 4:3,4 states, … praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak
the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak …
According to Ray Prinzing:
-"For as the body is one, and has many members, and all members of that one body, being many, are one body;
SO ALSO IS THE CHRIST. For by one Spirit (His) are we all baptized into one body . . . and have been all made to drink
into one Spirit." [1 Corinthians 12:12-13]. There is a corporate Christ body of which HE is the Head. And to become
a part of this body in its full expression of reality means more than just to have the beginnings of an anointing. It included
the whole process of our identification in His death and resurrection, till even our body is changed like unto His glorious
body. He went into the grave as Jesus, but He certainly came forth as THE CHRIST. There is dimension beyond dimension,
in one glorious expression after another, until HE becomes the fullness that fills ALL IN ALL." ( Whispers
Of The Mysteries, Ray Prinzing )
-The understanding of Christ remains a mystery to many due to the fact that they do not see the CORPORATE ASPECT
and expression of the Christ. They recognize that Jesus is the Christ, which is right and proper, but they do not see that
they too are a part of the Christ! Remember … Christ is one, but has many members. Jesus is the head and we are His
body. We are His fullness that fills all in all. Think about that. Jesus, the Christ, is not complete without His body. Once
again, His body is the fullness of Him that fills all in all.
-We must see that Jesus is THE CHRIST and we are HIS CHRIST. The word "Christ" means: the anointed One. Jesus
is the anointed One, and in Him, we are His anointed ones. He is the anointed One with many anointed ones. THIS IS THE CHRIST!
-Colossians 1:26,27 states, … Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but
now is made manifest to His saints … which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory: … We must see that the Christ
has enlarged Himself. He is now a many membered man. The anointed One is in us.
