The Mystery of God's Will: The Summing Up!

Handbook 5: Article 35 - Making Full The Word of God

"...Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to Thee I lift up my soul...
Teach me to do Thy will,
For Thou art my God;
Let Thy good Spirit lead me on level land."

Psalm 143:8, 10

The place to begin:

"...ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding..."

Colossians 1:9

Expressions of His will in the Word of God:

"Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

Matthew 6:10

"...that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the periods of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time."

Acts 3:19-21

"...God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father."

Philippians 2:9-11

"'Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but the heaven.' And this expression, 'Yet once more,' denotes the removing of those things that can be shaken, as in created things, in order that those things which cannot be shaken may remain."

Hebrews 12:26, 27

"...In all wisdom and insight He, making known to us the mystery of His will... with a view to an administration of the fullness of time, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth."

Ephesians 1:8-10

The Summing Up of All Things in Christ: A Closer Look

"Now I make know to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which you also received, in which you also stand, by which also you were saved, if you hold fast the word...

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive. But each in his own order; Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming, then comes the end, when He delivers up the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet... And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all in all."

1 Corinthians 15:1, 2, 22-25, 28
