At our church meeting last night we had a prophet from Scotland come in, Alan Ross. He posed the exact same question that I posed several posts down. Just what is the whole Gospel message? Jesus saves us from our sins. True. Jesus also heals our bodies, He delivers us, provides for us. He is everything we need in this life and the next. All this is true. It isn't the whole truth though. What is the whole truth?
Col 1:26the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. 27To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
This mystery is Christ Himself. It isn't a message, it's a Person. Christ in you, Christ in me, the hope of glory. Christ Himself is the whole Gospel. The One who has all authority in Heaven and on Earth in us, the hope of glory.
My only regret about last night is that Alan didn't give the name of my future wife in the personal prophecy. (whaa) I was hoping to send an email to her with it and tell her how we were made for each other. I'm not saying she is the one, that's up to her. It's a little early to ask her about marriage anyway, I've only known her a week. I'd better shut-up now, I might get myself in trouble.
