The prophetic life of a believer should open one up to the great cosmic drama, of an cosmic reality of epic proportion, which is situated in the realm called the heavenlies in Christ Jesus.
This sphere of reality, which one enters into, through the revelation of the work of the eternal Christ, at the place called Calvary, is the realm of the cosmos, which is situated over the creation.
At Calvary this great cosmic drama, of an universal epic evil, called sin and death was invaded by the God of creation, through the evet of his Son.
This comic realm of reality, which the present age is cradled in, came under the divine judgment and wrath, of a loving creator, who in the event of his eternal Son, reclaimed his creation, which he created in love.
The cross was not a moment in the history of this world, the cross was an out of time eternal event, which broke into the history of time.
This eternal event, which time was a witness of, was universally cosmic.
The real drama that took place, was in the eternal cosmic world, which is situated outside of the history of time.
Time was an witness to this epic other worldly moment, but this moment was outside of time.
The universal Christ, who created all things by his love, came into time to reclaim the nations, which he created.
This cosmic sphere of a hidden invisible reality, which broods over the nations, came under the dominion of the eternal God, who created all things by his word.
Having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us: and he hath taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross; having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2, 14-15
We speak wisdom, however, among them that are full-grown: yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought: but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, even the wisdom that hath been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds unto our glory: which none of the rulers of this world hath known: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory: 1 Corinthians 2, 6-8
At the cross the love of God was revealed, against the cosmic rules of this age, who through their lies of deceit, have kept humanity from the truth of a loving creator.
These cosmic structures of darkness, who in some strange way rule over creation, were stripped of their covering and canopy, through the sacrificial act of love, for a good creation , which was cradled under a darkness of deception and bondage, to a sinister force, that is hidden in this present darkness.
The love of God was not revealed to condemn the world, but to set the world free.
God did not pour out his wrath on the cross on his Son. God was in Christ on the cross pouring out his love for the world he created.
The wrath of God was revealed on the cross not against humanity, but for humanity.
The wrath of God was poured out against all that separated God from his creatures, which he created in his love.
At the cross the cosmic powers of sin and death came under the wrath and judgment of God, through his Christ.
God so loved his creation, that he gave his Son not to condemn it, but to restore it back to himself.
Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself. John 12, 31-33
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him freely give us all things? Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth; who is he that condemneth? It is Christ Jesus that died, yea rather, that was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Even as it is written,
For thy sake we are killed all the day long;
We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8, 31-39
I believe that everything God has done through Christ is only revealed in the revelation of the Cross of Calvary. When one sees the truth of Christ and him crucified, then one sees true reality.
