Verses:

Gal. 3:2 “This only I wish to learn from you, Did you receive the Spirit out of the works of law or out of the hearing of faith?”

 

Excerpts:

The blessing of the gospel is the processed Triune God reaching us as the Spirit. The Spirit is everything to us to live the Christian life.

 

Through Adam’s fall the human race was brought under the curse, but God promised Abraham that in his seed the nations would be blessed. Christ has fulfilled God’s promise to Abraham. Christ as the seed of Abraham has redeemed us out of the curse of the law so that the blessing of Abraham might come to the nations in Him. Christ died a substitutionary death on the cross to deliver us from the curse brought in by Adam. Then in resurrection Christ, who was the unique seed of Abraham as the last Adam, became the life-giving Spirit. The resurrected Christ as the life-giving Spirit is dispensed into us to make us the sons of Abraham, the corporate seed of Abraham, those who can receive and inherit the consummated Spirit as the blessing of Abraham. Before we believed into Christ and were saved, we were cursed under the law. As the seed of Abraham, Christ brought to us the processed and consummated Triune God as our blessing for our enjoyment. The all-inclusive Spirit, who the all-inclusive Christ as the seed of Abraham has become, is the aggregate of the all-embracing blessing of the full gospel of God in Christ for the divine dispensing according to the divine economy. (The Conclusion of the New Testament, pp. 3294-3295)
