Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of December

Verses:

John 19:34 “But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.”

 

Excerpts:

The blood came out of Christ’s side for redemption. Following the blood, the water came out, which is the flowing life to produce the church. This divine, flowing, uncreated life is typified by the rib taken out of Adam’s side.

 

When we received the Lord Jesus, He came into us as the resurrection life, the unbreakable life. It is this life that transforms us. Day by day as we enjoy this flowing, divine, uncreated, unbreakable life, we are being transformed. This transformation is mentioned and revealed in Romans 12:2 and 2 Corinthians 3:18. As we are being transformed, we are also being built into the church to be the bride to satisfy Christ as His counterpart. At the end of Genesis 2 is Eve, and at the end of the entire Bible is the New Jerusalem, which is the ultimate Eve, the ultimate consummation of the universal bride built up with precious materials produced by the resurrection life of Christ.

 

This bride, the New Jerusalem, will fulfill the two aspects of the purpose of God. First, the New Jerusalem will be the full expression of God in God’s full image. Second, this New Jerusalem will subdue the enemy, conquer the earth, and exercise God’s authority over the entire universe, especially over the creeping things. May we all be brought into the enjoyment and experience of this flowing, transforming, and building life to be prepared as the bride that will bring Christ back. (The Crucial Revelation of Life in the Scriptures, ch. 2)
