Verses:

1 Pet. 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has regenerated us unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

 

Excerpts:

The church is nothing more than a pure product out of Christ. This is typified by Eve in the book of Genesis. Eve was a full reproduction of Adam. The church must also be one element—the element of Christ. In the Lord’s recovery, the church must be the pure element of Christ. Anything that is other than Christ is not the church.

After Christ terminated the entire old creation through His all-inclusive death, the church was produced in His resurrection. The church is an entity absolutely in resurrection; it is not natural, nor is it of the old creation. The church is a new creation created in Christ’s resurrection and by the resurrected Christ. We must also see [that] the church today is in Christ in ascension. Ephesians 2:6 tells us that the church has been resurrected with Christ, and now the church is seated in the heavenlies with Christ. Therefore, the church is absolutely and purely of the element of Christ, absolutely in resurrection, and absolutely remaining in the heavenlies with Christ. Today the church is “Christly,” “resurrectionly,”and heavenly. With the church there is no element other than Christ. Such a vision will govern you to the uttermost and will rule out everything that is not Christly (of Christ), resurrectionly (of resurrection), or heavenly (of the heavens).With the believers there is still the flesh of sin, but with the church there is no flesh of sin because the church was born in resurrection. The church is a matter in Christ, in resurrection, and in Christ’s ascension in the heavenlies. (Elders’ Training, Book 2, Ch. 3)
