Fullness of Christ
it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV)
The above words exclude ALL OTHERS from this awesome fulness. This
simply denies there is ANY fullness anywhere else! These
words claim everything for Christ! ALL OTHERS are
completely shut out. We cannot possibly realize the depth of this
fulness, but perhaps we can get a better understanding, so that
we may glorify our Lord Jesus more every day.
powerful words: “all fulness,” are placed WHERE?
“In Him,” meaning our blessed Redeemer.
“it pleased the Father.” And we are also told
for how long . . . “dwell.” Dwell = taking up permanent
residence. Since God is eternal, this means eternally!
We are blessed
indeed that the Father has provided this fullness for us. To try
with our human effort to fill the barrenness within us, we are doomed
before we start. In our nature is complete emptiness and utter vanity.
7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my
flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me;
but how to perform that which is good I find not. (KJV) We have NO merit, NO power, NO desire to produce
anything good within us. Human nature is like a wilderness; barren,
empty and void. We
have NO fullness whatsoever without Jesus. In us “dwells” only evil, and as Satan always tempts
us to sin, we have only sorrow and death ahead without Jesus.
Those who know
Christ, and possess Him in their heart and soul, were once like
that wilderness, but when the “fullness” of
Christ filled their very being, peace and joy and hope and contentment
filled us. When a person receives the “all fulness”
of Jesus, a wonderful change takes place.
fulness” of Christ tells us that Jesus is substance;
He is not just a passing shadow! He is real! His fullness is eternal
and not just a foretaste of things to come. Our sins and sorrows
are real, and only real, actual mercies of our Redeemer can remedy
them. Before His work on the cross, regular sacrifices had to be
made in the Temple for our sins. But after His once for all sacrifice
(Heb.10:10), the Father accepted His substitution for the sinners
of the world. Now, Jesus is our Sacrifice, our Altar, and our all
in all. The Law was only a shadow of good things to come, but Jesus
is the very Image of all good things.
1:16 And of his fulness have all we received,
and grace for grace. (KJV)
10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things
to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those
sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the
comers thereunto perfect. (KJV)
Col. 1:5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; (KJV) It is not what we know that brings salvation, but Whom we know. Knowing Christ is knowing God. To say that our hope is stored up in Heaven, stresses the security of the believer. Because we know that our future destination and salvation are sure, we are free to live for Christ and love others. (KJV)
1 Peter 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, (KJV) When you find yourself doubting or wavering in your faith or love, remember your destination, Heaven. Only the “fulness” of Christ makes this possible!
Col. 1:6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: (KJV) Whenever people believe the Gospel, they are changed. God’s Word is not just for informing us, it is for our transforming us. The “fulness” of Christ makes us a whole new person. Only this “fulness” places us in a relationship with God the Father.
1:8 Who also declared unto us your love in
the Spirit. (KJV) It is only the
“fullness” of Christ that places in us a great
love for others that the Holy Spirit provides.
1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we
heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might
be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual
understanding; (KJV) Only the “fullness”
of Christ gives us a complete understanding of what He wants us
to do in our lives, making us wise with spiritual wisdom.
1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord
unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing
in the knowledge of God; (KJV) The
“fullness” of Christ is the only way we can
ever live a pleasing life to God. As we honor and please the Lord,
we will continually do good, kind things for others, and day by
day, we will learn to know God better and better.
1:11 Strengthened with all might, according
to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with
joyfulness; (KJV) The “all
fullness” of Christ is the only way we can be strengthened
with His glorious power so that we will have all the patience and
endurance we need, and with joy unending.
1:12-14 Giving thanks unto the Father, which
hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints
in light:  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness,
and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  In
whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness
of sins: (KJV) The “fulness”
of Christ gives multiple benefits to all believers when they believe
and trust in Him and His amazing work on the cross. These verses
list yet another five benefits.
His “fullness” qualified us to share His
inheritance. 2 Cor. 5:21 For
he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might
be made the righteousness of God in him.
His “fulness” rescued us from Satan’s
reign of darkness and made us God’s children. Col.
2:15 And having spoiled principalities and
powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in
it. (KJV) The “fullness” of Christ disabled
the evil ruler and his authority over us. Jesus shamed them publicly
by His victory on the cross.
The “fullness” found in Christ brought us
into His eternal kingdom. Ephes. 1:5-6 Having
predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ
to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  To
the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us
accepted in the beloved. (KJV)
- (4) The “fulness” of Christ redeemed us;
purchased our freedom from sin and judgment.
Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood
of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into
the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
(KJV) Once for all, He took Blood into that Most Holy Place, not
the blood of goats and calves; He took His own Blood, and with
it He secured our salvation forever.
(5) He forgave all our sins.
Ephes. 1:7 In whom we have redemption
through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace; (KJV) The “fullness”
of His grace purchased our freedom through His Blood. Our sins
are totally forgiven.
1:15-16 Who is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of every creature:  For by him were all things
created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities,
or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (KJV) Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was made and is supreme over all creation.
It was through the “fullness” of Christ that everything
in Heaven and Earth were created. He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see; kings, kingdoms, rulers, and
authorities. Everything was created through Him and for Him.
This is one of the most powerful statements about the divine nature
of Christ found anywhere in the Bible. Jesus is not only equal to
God (Phil. 2:6), He is God
(John 10:30, 38; 12:45; 14:1-11). As
the image of the invisible God, He represents God exactly in every
way. He not only reflects God (like a mirror), but
He reveals God to us (John 1:18; 14:9-11). As the firstborn over
all creation, He has all the priority and authority of the firstborn
prince in a king’s household. He came from Heaven, not from
the dust of the Earth (1 Cor. 15:47). He is Lord of all (Romans
9:5; 10:11-13; Rev. 1:5; 17:14). He is completely holy (Hebrews
7:26-28; 1 Peter 1:19; 2:22; 1 John 3:5), and He has authority to
judge the world (Romans 2:16; 2 Cor. 5:10; 2 Tim. 4:1). Therefore, Christ is supreme
over ALL creation, including the spirit world. We must believe that Jesus is God, or our Christian faith
is hollow, perverse, and meaningless. This is a central truth of
TRUE Christianity. We must oppose those who say that Jesus was
merely a prophet or a good teacher. “All fulness”
is in Him and He passes that fullness on to believers.
1:17 And he is before all things, and by him
all things consist. (KJV) He existed before everything
else began, and it is He that holds all creation together.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without
him was not any thing made that was made.
(KJV) Without Jesus, was not any thing
made that was made, from the highest angel to the lowest worm; from
the highest mountain to the deepest sea. This reveals
“all fulness” that is in Him, and shows how
well qualified He is for the work of our redemption and salvation.
Nothing or nobody comes even close to this.
1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church:
who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things
he might have the preeminence. (KJV)
Christ is the Head of the church, which is “born
again” believers. He was the first of
all who will rise from the dead, so He is first in everything. His
resurrection proves His lordship over the material world. Everyone
who trusts in Christ will also defeat death and rise again to live
eternally with Him (1 Cor. 15:20; 1 Thes. 4:14).
Because of Christ’s death on the cross, He has been exalted
and raised to the status that is rightfully His (Phil. 2:5-11).
Christ is spiritually supreme in the entire universe, therefore
we should surely give Him first place in all our thoughts and activities.
1:19 For it pleased
the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; (KJV) Back to our wondrous
text again! Christ
is fully human; He is also fully God. Christ has always been God
and always will be God. When we have Christ we have all of God in
human form. Don’t ever lessen either Jesus’ humanity
or His divinity.
1:20 And, having made peace through the blood
of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him,
I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. (KJV) Only by Christ does God reconcile everything to Himself.
He made peace with everything in Heaven and on Earth by way of His
Blood on the cross. Christ’s death provided the only way for
all people to come to God. It cleared away the sin that keeps us
from having a right relationship with God. This does NOT mean that
everyone has been saved, but that the way has been cleared for anyone
who will trust Christ to be saved.We
can have peace with God and be reconciled to Him ONLY by accepting
Christ, who died in our place.
The more we
mourn over our emptiness, the sweeter the two wondrous words become!
“All fulness” . . . the more we see what we
truly are, the more we run to the bank of Heaven to receive a portion
of Jesus’ “fullness.” There will never
be “insufficient funds” in this awesome bank! Whenever
we go, for whatever reason, we will be granted our request. Our
check will never bounce!
2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of
the Godhead bodily. (KJV) When the
apostle John saw the Son of Man in Patmos, he clearly saw the marks
1:14 His head and his hairs were white like
wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
(KJV) “His head and his hairs were white like wool,
as white as snow” John saw clearly Jesus’ eternal existence.
“His eyes were as a flame of fire” this reveals His
knowing all things (ominscience).
1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his
mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the
sun shineth in his strength.(KJV) “Out of His
mouth went a sharp two-edged sword” . . . here is the authority
and all power (omnipotence) of His Word. “His countenance
was as the sun shineth in his strength” this refers to His
power and endless glory.
1:11-A Saying, I am Alpha
and Omega, the first and the last: (KJV) Nothing is ever too hard for Jesus! Power, wisdom,
truth, purity, holiness, steadfastness, and all the attributes of
God are in Him. They establish a fullness that is unimaginable to
our finite minds. Also this fullness verifies a never ending abundance.
The most educated and intellectual person in the world cannot possibly
comprehend the special fullness of Christ as God.
that dwells in our Lord is not only inborn in His nature, but is
the result of His mediatorial obligations. HOW did He achieve this
awesome fullness? By carrying our burden to the cross in unimaginable
suffering. He justified by His death our guilt of sin and God’s
wrath to it. Also since He is God, He possesses by nature this wondrous
God the Father stored up in Jesus all the wondrous attributes and
characteristics necessary for our salvation and our living a pleasing
life to God. Jesus is like a bank or a reservoir that holds “all
fulness” to keep believers secure and righteous.
is there for all believers to use, day or night! His eternal love
and His abounding grace are there for Him to freely distribute to
all the saints. All power is placed into His Holy Hands to use as
He sees fit. When He shuts, no man can open, and when He opens,
no man can shut (Rev. 3:7).
Not only is Christ Wonderful and Counselor; He is the Mighty God,
He is the Everlasting Father, He is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah
9:6). He is the possessor of Heaven and Earth. To be all these things
and more, He must be filled with “all fulness.”
He is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification,
and redemption: (1 Cor. 1:30). Do you honor Jesus and glorify Him
for the fullness that is in Him, for us?
look at this from a different angle. Remember that all fulness dwells
in Christ towards God and men. God requires obedience from His children.
When He looks down and sees those “in Christ,”
He sees His beloved Son, Jesus who has never failed (not once) to
do God’s will. Since justice demands that the Law be kept;
and since Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every
one that believeth. (Rom. 10:4), we are justified in the Father’s
sight (Rom.5:1). The fullness of Christ is applied to us.
is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
(Mat.3:17) Shining out through the universe is a
display of infinite mercy, justice and wisdom coming from the fullness
of Christ. The eternal Father is well satisfied with the work of
the Redeemer, and His once for all sacrifice He made on the cross.
1:8-9 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne,
O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre
of thy kingdom.  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;
therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of
gladness above thy fellows. (KJV)
1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace,
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
(KJV) Unspeakable comfort arises from this truth . . . for if we
had to provide or perform something for our salvation, we would
always be in danger, for we would always fall short! But, the Bible
clearly tells us we
are accepted in the Beloved. We are safe beyond anything that would stand in our way. If it weren’t
for Jesus and His work on the cross, we’d have many questions
such as the following.
6:6-7 Wherewith shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with
burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?  Will the Lord be
pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers
of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit
of my body for the sin of my soul? (KJV) HOW could we possibly make ourselves right with God??? Instead,
all those who trust and believe in God’s one and only Plan
of salvation (Jesus), now hear words like the following.
10:8-10 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering
and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither
hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;  Then said
he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first,
that he may establish the second.  By the which will we are
sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once
for all. (KJV) Once
by the Law of Moses animal sacrifices or grain offerings or animals
burned on the altar or other offerings for sin, did not please the
Father. But, Jesus came to do God’s will. He canceled the
first covenant in order to establish the second. What God wants
is for us to be made holy by the Sacrifice of the Body of Jesus
Christ once for all time.
10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I
remember no more. (KJV) I would much
rather hear words like these, instead of trying and failing to give
The all fulness
of Christ is also directed to man, both sinners and saints. What
does sinners want in Christ? Whatever you are wanting, Christ is
your all! He gives power to believe. He gives strength to the weak.
He gives forgiveness of sin when you repent. He gives a new heart
to all who believe.
36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and
a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
(KJV) He gives pardon of sins. He gives spiritual healing. Exodus
15:26 . . . for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
He gives us
clean white clothing, for His righteousness is our dress (Psalm
132:16; Isaiah 61:10; Zech. 3:3-5; Rev. 3:4-5; Rev. 19:7-8). He
gives us spiritual life.
5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest,
and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (KJV) We ALL are spiritually dead without Christ. He is
come that we should have life (John 10:10). The list goes on and
on! You can pile up your needs so that they reach the highest mountain
top, Christ can surely provide them all! More than all in Him can
the saints? A "saint" is a believer in Christ and His
work on the cross. Just because we are saved, doesn’t mean
our needs have discontinued. We will always have needs! Our wants
may not always be filled, but our needs shall be filled! It seems
that the closer we are to God, the more aware we are of our spiritual
3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou
art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: (KJV)
Unbelievers, as well as some believers, falsely presume that numerous
material possessions are a sign of God’s spiritual blessing.
What people can see and buy becomes more valuable to them than what
is unseen and eternal. Wealth, luxury, and ease can make people
feel confident and self-satisfied. But
no matter how much you possess or how much money you have, you don’t
have anything if you don’t have a close, personal relationship
with Christ. Don’t center your life on comfort and luxury,
for all true riches are in Christ.
6:21 For where your treasure
is, there will your heart be also. (KJV) Let
us be completely dependent on the fullness of Christ, now and forever
more, for there is NO need in our spirit, that He cannot provide
you long for higher spiritual accomplishments?
you want to conquer sin?
you want to be more useful in your service to God?
Do you deeply desire to reach out to lost souls for Christ?
you realize just how desperately you need the grace of God?
you long to glorify Him more?
you have a desperate need for feeling closer to Him?
Do you feel you are nothing in comparison to this awesome Being?
you see just how holy and pure He is?
Do you understand that without His wisdom and power you would
fall flat on your face even in the slightest trial?
and unbounded God gives Himself to His children in the Person of
His only begotten Son.
3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For
all things are yours; (KJV) All things
are ours through the fullness of Christ. If we open our mouth wide,
He will fill it (Psalm 81:10). What
an awesome Saviour we have!
even when we are at home in Heaven our need for Him will not lessen.
We shall still depend on Him for our necessities.
22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water
of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and
of the Lamb. (KJV) This is of which
we shall drink! And how can we possibly reign without His power?
20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part
in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power,
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign
with him a thousand years. (KJV)
6:2-A Do ye not know that the saints shall
judge the world? . . . (KJV)
21:22-23 And I saw no temple therein: for the
Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.  And the
city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it:
for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. (KJV) Not all the beautiful
music of the world could make a heavenly place if Jesus were not
there! Nor could many suns, moons and stars brighten Heaven if Jesus
were not there!
1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him
should all fulness dwell; (KJV) Because
it pleased the Father, for all saints and sinners, all fulness is
treasured up in this one awesome and amazing Person, Jesus! How can anyone satisfactorily express what is meant
by the all fulness of Christ? This
fulness cannot and does not dwell any where else in anything or
any one! NOT
in any denomination or religion. NOT
in any preacher, bishop, cardinal or pope!
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. (KJV) Anyone who has Jesus in their
heart, soul and life would be a complete idiot to look for fulfillment
elsewhere. It’s not going to happen! If
a person wants spiritual fulfillment, it comes ONLY from Jesus!
Unless you have Christ, the all-sufficient Saviour as the CENTER
of your worship, your religion is in vain! And my
friend you cannot add anything. Woe be unto you should you try.
NO rituals or sacraments or person (no matter who)
is needed! Candles may burn brightly in some churches, but Jesus
is all the Light we need!
to be successors to the apostles, but we follow the Lamb Himself!
No matter how wise religious leaders may seem, we have for ourselves
the Incarnate Wisdom Himself! Anyone who adds to the Word of God
shall have the plagues added to them (Rev.22:18). Any denomination
or person who teaches doctrines other than what is in the Bible
will be punished severely.
15:9 But in vain they
do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
(KJV) Where else could all fulness have been placed? Would there
have been any better place than Jesus? Absolutely not! God needed
a tremendous capacity in which to store all fulness. Where was there
such a place? Jesus!
40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow
of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended
the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in
scales, and the hills in a balance?
(KJV) To Jesus
and Jesus alone could this honor go. To Him alone could all fulness
belong. He alone could be the Grand Storehouse! He alone is the
Bank to which we go to receive abundant resources.
Psalm 72:17 His name shall endure for
ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall
be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed. (KJV) ONLY in Jesus shall
all nations be blessed. ONLY in Him can any individual be blessed.
5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author
of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; (KJV) Maybe the Father placed all fulness in Christ because
only He could be capable of distributing it unto God’s children.
Only He would know without a doubt if a person was truly born again,
whereas a human could be lied to and believe the lies. We could
NOT go directly to God the Father for grace . . . for He is as a
12:29 For our God is a consuming fire. (KJV) But, Christ, even though He is God, He is also Man;
a Man of a meek and lowly spirit (Mat.11:29), therefore He is approachable.
Those who know Him, take great pleasure in being near to Him. This
Jesus who was a Friend to publicans and sinners, is truly a Friend
to all believers. In Him as God incarnate, dwells the fullness of
the Godhead bodily (Col.2:9). Jesus
is NOT a myth, a dream or fiction! He is a real, living PERSON!
A Person with such a capacity for love, we can approach Him with
no dread, no fear! The fullness dwells in Him as Prophet, Priest
and King (divine); but also as a Person (Man). All fullness is in
Him entirely. Any fullness that comes from Him in His work, His
gifts and His Promises is all obtained from His Person. The value
of His death also lies primarily in His Person, because He was God
and gave Himself for us. His own self carried our sins in His own
Body on that tree. The excellence and perfection of this Person,
gave fullness to His sacrifice.
1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by
the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat
down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (KJV) The power to save anyone who comes to Him lies in
this awesome Person!
7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them
to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth
to make intercession for them. (KJV) When you truly realize and see what
this amazing Man did for us, for you, your soul will grab hold of
Him and never let Him go! Your soul will grip His pierced Feet as
you look up into the Face that was marred more than any other man.
52:14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage
was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons
of men: (KJV) With
the horrible disfigurement, you will know your Saviour! The beaten
and bloodied Body was disfigured for you, for me. But friend, when
you believe in Him, and the work He did, you are on that plateau
where all fullness dwells, and of that abundant fullness, you shall
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the
Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and
strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. (KJV) Praise and thank Him
this day and forever more! Give Him honor that is due Him! Only
He can reconcile you to God the Father! I pray that you believe
this. NO one else can do this, NO one! We owe Him a debt that we
can never pay. But the wonderful part, He is not asking for payment!
He just wants our love and our commitment to Him. Is that too much
for Him to ask?
If you do
not know Jesus for the full pardon of your sins, go to Him NOW!
That never ending supply of fullness is available for you.
7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and
wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto
our God for ever and ever. Amen.
(KJV) We need to see Jesus for who
He is, we need to see the fullness that is in Him, that is there
for us! We need to love and cherish Him because of who He is and
what He has done for us . . . and what He continues to do for us
day by day. He reaches out to us in our weakness with all fulness
that is in Him! He reaches out to us with those nail scarred Hands!
My friend, put your hand into His and you will never be sorry, for
it is in Him and Him alone where the all fulness of grace dwells.
You must go through Jesus or you can never reach the Father.
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. (KJV) My
friend, if you want to go where the Father is (in Heaven), you MUST
go through Jesus!
WHY? is all fullness in Jesus?
pleased the Father that in Him all fulness should dwell. God is
sovereign and can do as He wishes. For those of you who don’t
like this, you have a problem. We could ask a thousand questions,
the answer to many would be the same. God is a sovereign God. Sovereignty
of God is His absolute right to do any and all things according
to His own good pleasure (Daniel 4:25, 35; Romans 9:15-23; 1 Tim.
6:15; Rev. 4:11). He is the Potter, we are simply the clay. We can
make NO demands of Him. We cannot demand answers to questions. The
creation cannot demand anything of the Creator.
9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay,
of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto
dishonour? (KJV) The Creator has control over the
created object. The created object, therefore, has no right to demand
anything from its Creator. Its very existence depends on Him.
did the Father place all fulness in Christ?
answer is that NO ONE
is more fit to be glorified as the Saviour of mankind.
2:7-11 But made himself of no reputation, and
took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness
of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself,
and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name
which is above every name:  That at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things
under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (KJV) Actually it is justice that the grace He has brought
to us is treasured up in Him. Too it is the wisdom of God.
Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living
stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, (KJV) Since it pleased the Father to put all grace
in Christ, let us be thankful. If it pleases God, it most certainly
should please us! Could you with your finite mind, think of a better
place than Christ? My friend, if we could save ourselves, it would
take the glory away from Christ, and I certainly do NOT want to
do that. It gives me great joy to know that my Saviour is exalted
and one day will have every knee bow to Him, and every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father!
WHEN? is all fullness in
today, tomorrow and forever! It is there ALL the time! Past, present
and future! This fullness was in Christ in the days of old, and
is in Him today, and will be there forever! Just as Christ is eternal,
so too is the all fulness in Him. Because the all fulness of Christ
“dwells” there, it is always found there. And another
amazing thing about this fullness, it never takes a vaccation. It
is always there! No matter what hour of the day or night we flee
to Him, no matter where we are, His fulness is there to strengthen,
comfort and encourage us! And it never wavers or weakens. And the
power of His Blood will never waver, never weaken either when some
lost soul runs to Him for grace. He is waiting for them with open
arms; and His love, His mercy, and His forgiveness has not taken
a day off, ever! The fullness of grace
will be easily found when you seek Him. Your prayer will not be
The all fulness of Christ is never exhausted or diminished. One
day, perhaps in the not too distant future, this world will be destroyed
by fervent heat.
Peter 3:10-12 But the day of the Lord will
come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent
heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned
up.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what
manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements
shall melt with fervent heat? (KJV) Also see: Isaiah
34:4; Joel 3:15-16; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; Rev. 6:12-17.
There shall be the same all fulness in Christ that day as the day
the first sinner fell at His Feet and begged forgiveness. From eternity
past, to eternity future, the all fulness of Christ remains steadfast
and true. Until time as we know it exists no more, He will always
possess and exercise the same power to forgive, to renew, to deliver,
to sanctify and to perfectly save souls.
fulness is a permanent quality in Christ, don’t you think
we should take this into consideration and be ever so thankful,
ever so grateful? Don’t you think we should give honor, praise
and glory to Christ every day we live?
145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord;
and thy saints shall bless thee. (KJV)
Let us worship Him because His fullness shall never decrease. Jesus
once wore a crown of horrendous thorns. That will be no more! Only
a crown of glory will He wear now!
Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall
appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. (KJV)
3:16 For God so loved
the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.[KJV]
