THE FULNESS OF GOD_2016
(week 43/16)
OLUBI JOHNSON

Ephesians 3:14-19 KJV:  For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, (15)  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (16)  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; (17)  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, (18)  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; (19)  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God

Here these scriptures give us a road map of HOW to be filled with ALL THE FULNESS OF GOD.

Practically what does this mean?

It means having PERMANENT ACCESS to the power of the Spirit without measure through the physical body, like the Lord Jesus did.

Colossians 2:9 KJV:  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 

John 3:34 KJV:  For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 

John 14:12 KJV:  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father

We are now in the time and season for this reality to be manifest in the Church.

The present gross moral darkness (as shown by the acceptance and legalizing of homosexual life styles and marriages by a frightening majority in the western world and consequent persecution of those who speak against it) and the shaking of the nations as demonstrated by the winning of the US elections by Donald Trump indicates that it is TIME for the Church to arise with this fullness of God to dispel this gross darkness and bring peace and stability to shaking of the nations so that the gospel of the Kingdom can be preached and demonstrated by the power and glory of God to every tribe, tongue and kindred in ALL the nations of the world (Matthew 24:14).

Isaiah 60:1-3 NIV:  Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. (2)  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. (3)  Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. 

Here the scripture shows us that the church that is filled with all the fulness of God will manifest God’s glory that will attract ALL nations and so remove the darkness that has been blinding them spiritually and morally:

Isaiah 25:6-7 NKJV:  And in this mountain The LORD of hosts will make for ALL people A feast of choice pieces, A feast of wines on the lees, Of fat things full of marrow, Of well-refined wines on the lees. (7)  And He will destroy on this mountain The surface of the covering cast over all people, And the veil that is spread over all nations. 

It is this church that is filled with all the fulness of God that is what is desired by all nations in this time of gross darkness and severe shaking as shown in

Haggai 2:7-9 NIV:  I will shake ALL nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. (8)  ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. (9)  ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace, declares the LORD Almighty.

It is this glorious church, endowed with the knowledge and wisdom of God that comes from the ability of the mind of Christ that the nations are waiting for to deliver them from the present gross darkness and the severe political shaking and so give them stability from the present shaking:

Isaiah 25:9 NKJV:  And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.” 

Romans 8:19 KJV:  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 

Isaiah 33:5-6 KJV: The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.  (6) And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

So, how then do we get this FULNESS OF GOD?

By perfecting the love of God as revealed in Paul’s prayer in

Ephesians 3:14-19 KJV: For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  (15)  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  (16)  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;  (17)  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love (18)  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;  (19)  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 

Observe that to be filled with all the fulness of God, you need to have Christ dwelling (or active or operational) in your heart (spirit and soul: will, mind and emotions) by faith, become rooted and grounded in love; then have the love of God developed in knowledge and comprehension (Philippians 1:9-11) to all saints, so that you love all saints even when you have more knowledge than them (“the love of Christ which passeth knowledge”). As all this is taking place through prayer with the life of God and praying in the Spirit (1Corinthians 14:2, Ephesians 6:18)the grace of God (i.e. the measure of the life of God (1 Peter 3:7)) will be sequentially multiplied (2 Peter 1:2-3; John 1:16) as it is given unto you, until you ultimately have access to the same bodily-fulness of the Godhead that the Lord Jesus had access to when He was here, causing you to fulfill:

John 14:12 KJV: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
