Nº 20 · March - April 2003
Gods purpose with men is not only to save them, but once they are saved, to build them up in the body that is the Church, until all arrive at maturity; at the stature of Christs fullness. This work of edificationsanctification, maturityin the body is a preparation of the church to participate in the eschatological events that approach. Among them, the brides preparation for the Wedding of the Lamb, Christs Judgment, the definitive defeat of Satan and Jesus Christs millennial Kingdom.
Before being harvested, the wheat must be mature; its ear must droop downward broken- to receive the beneficent rays of our Sun of Righteousness. In the same way, before being useful in the Fathers house, the heir must reach adulthood.
In this way toward maturity, the word of righteousness plays an important role which brings us an increasingly clear revelation of Christ, and of what the Father has given us in him.
The land of Canaan is one of the most beautiful and instructive metaphors of Christ. May the Father grant us a spirit of wisdom and of revelation to know its deep meaning, so that we take full possession of That which was given entirely for us and to us.
