What Is The Mystery of The Church?Answer: The things of God calls for revelation by the spirit of God because they are hidden in mysteries.
The question of what is the mystery of the church is a welcome question in this endtime when many misunderstanding the church to mean only building where people gather for religious purpose.
No, the name ‘church’ has deeper spiritual meaning than you think. That is why I say that you should be patient to finish reading this answer to the question.
Benefits: Yes, the knowledge of the true meaning of church will transform you.
You will be shocked to discover that you are a church. This will help you to respect your body as much as you can respect the church of God.
It will help you to be prayerful within you, seeing that as God is in the church so he is in you. It will change your mindset to recognize that as the church is the wife of Jesus you too is the wife of Jesus. What a great love stimulus that shall be. You will be in love with Jesus and God.
Let's see the message:The message of this question is that the church is the body of Jesus Christ, spiritually speaking.
As it is written in Eph 1:20-23 that after Jesus was raised from the dead and sat at the right hand of God in heaven; God gave him authority over all things, even unto his body which is the church.
How did his body form a church? This is because, at salvation, the new spirit of every believer is translated by God into his body by the spirit exchange, Joh 14:20
“And you in me and I in you” In 1 John 4:13, it is written “Hereby know we that we dwell in him and he is us because he hath given us of his spirit”.
Therefore the assembly of the indwelling spirits of all believers both dead and alive form the church of Jesus which is his body.
They are in his glorified body waiting for the day of rapture and resurrection.
Another meaning of the church is that the church is the temple of God.
In 1 Cor 3:16, it is written “Know you not that you are the temple of God and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
Spirit exchange makes this possible to say that if our spirits are in the glorified body of Jesus to form a church which also means the gathering of people for a purpose. It then means that the spirit of Jesus in us; the spirit of God and the Holy Ghost in us (1 Cor 6:19-20) make our body the temple or church of God.
And so you are a church of God spiritually speaking if his spirit is leaving in you.
The church is also the House of God physically speaking where people who have the spirit of God gather to worship God.
In 1 Timothy 3:15, it is called the pillar and ground of truth, the church of the living God where people should behave themselves.
Yet another spiritual meaning of church is that it is the wife of Jesus.
In Ephesians 5:25-32; it is written that husbands should relate to their wives as Jesus relates to the church which is his wife.
This is a great mystery yet true that Jesus was dead for our sins and raised up from the dead to justify or qualify our spirits to be joined together in marital union with his spirit (1 Cor 6:17) we are one spirit with the spirit of Jesus (Eph 2:18)
So spiritually we are a church wife to Jesus. Again we the church shall be formed a new Jerusalem, the bride or wife of Jesus (Rev 21:9-10).
We shall form a city, a holy city of New Jerusalem in relation with Jesus as husband and wife. Do you understand? This is a mystery, but by revelation, you shall understand it better.
Finally, the church is the manifold wisdom of God. (Eph 3:10) it is multiple wisdom of God in the sense that as our spirits indwell the body of Jesus in heaven; we shall be born again or delivered on the rapture/resurrection day in the kingdom of Heaven and clothed with a glorious body of Jesus after his kind to become sons of God. (1 John 3:1-3; :Phil 3:20-21).
From Heaven, we shall follow Jesus down to the earth to reign over the Zionists for 1000 years in the new world order which is the kingdom of Jesus (Rev 2:26-27; Rev 20:6). And from the earth to New Heaven and earth to live with Jesus and God at the New Jerusalem forever and ever.
God bless you.
