Dennis Willard spoke of The Divine Conspiracy in which the members of the trinity organised themselves to ensure that their vision for the sons of God would be realised. This vision is that these sons and daughters are to share their life with the trinity no matter what. According to the plan, the real nature of our Father would be revealed in the Son as the Son of Man. At the same time the real nature and glory of the sons of God – that’s you and I would be revealed and demonstrated in the person of Jesus Christ. Our real heritage and privilege as sons of God would be seen in the mirror that is Jesus Christ.
Contrary to what many of us have believed the mirror is not the la. The Mirror is Jesus Christ.
Jesus the son of God is both our mirror and our life. Christ is all and in all because He is and because this has been the plan from before the foundation of the world. The plan was initiated in Christ and will be brought to completion in you – Christ in you.
The spirit of sonship is the spirit and life that we are, as sons of our Father. This is the essence of the new covenant. Jesus is our life in every way – for forgiveness of sins, for impartation of righteousness, for the reception of life in place of the death of the death tree.
The new covenant is not written out in the Bible because it is not a list, not a set of prescriptions, rules or laws. Unlike Moses’ laws it is not an abstraction but the person of Jesus writ into our lives. It’s not Moses rules written on people’s hearts. It’s Jesus by the Spirit manifesting as you.
The new covenant is a complete and absolute break from Adam and Moses and is entirely Christ. The new covenant is a life and a person. Firstly the person of Jesus as each of us and secondly the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in us. The new covenant is the incarnation of God in humans in spirit and in truth. Ignore this and we are in darkness instead of light and lacking worshipers. We have true worship in Jesus as our life.
Any community of belief built on anything other than the new covenant has no legitimacy as the church Jesus builds. It has no foundation in truth or any part in the Kingdom of God. Because there is no Kingdom of sons – only slaves and workers. The latter build houses of religion. The former are the Kingdom of God.
‘Each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames’ 1 Cor 3.10-15 NIV.
Misguided builders will escape with their lives but nothing they have built will remain. Don’t be denuded of your inheritance by non-gospels and other gospels posing as revelation. Break through the web of brain-washing into the free air of the gospel of the Kingdom where you will reign as kings and priests. _____
