Verses:

John 16:13 “But when He, the Spirit of reality, comes, He will guide you into all the reality; for He will not speak from Himself, but what He hears He will speak; and He will declare to you the things that are coming.”

 

Excerpts:

The [reality of the] Body of Christ is the Spirit of the reality. This Spirit of reality makes everything of the processed Triune God a reality in the Body of Christ. It is this Spirit of reality who makes all the riches of the Triune God, which are just His reality, possible and real in the Body of Christ. All that the processed Triune God is, including righteousness, holiness, life, light, power, grace, and all the divine attributes, are realized by this Spirit of reality to be the real attributes of the Body of Christ. Originally, [these attributes] were merely God’s attributes; now [they] have been realized in the church by the Spirit in the Body of Christ. The church therefore possesses the reality of the divine attributes.

All that the Triune God experienced, including incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection, are likewise realized by this Spirit of reality to be the real experiences of the Body of Christ. When the Spirit of reality came, He made these experiences of the Triune God real in us as our real experiences. Because of this we can live a normal human life on the earth today. We do not lose our temper, nor do we blame or rebuke others, because the death of Christ is realized in us through the Spirit of reality. Moreover, the Spirit with the resurrection of Christ works in us to enable us to love and forgive others. These are all examples of how the experiences of the Triune God Himself have been realized in the church by the Spirit of reality to be the real experiences of the church. (A Thorough View of the Body of Christ, pp. 130-131)
