Scripture: Colossians 2:8,9
Colossians 2:8,9 says, “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” We don’t have any problem with the fact that the fullness of the Godhead is functional and operational in Christ. Everybody agrees with that. We know who Jesus is! And He is the head of the church! The problem is the next verse. Verse 10 says, “And you and I are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Those verses when they flow together give us this concept. Jesus is the play-rom-ah or fullness of the Godhead and we are the play-ro-o or the verb or the action of the fullness of the Godhead. If the church doesn’t display the action of the fullness of the Godhead, then that fullness is never displayed in the earth because God ordained the church to display to principalities and powers that they do not rule. The only way that happens is when the church brings the judicial authority of God on those who refuse to turn loose of their demonic assignments. Until people see the judgment of God they will not turn from evil. The church is the verb and the action of the Godhead! Are we the action of Jesus in Revelation? Look around! We do not see this action on the scale God wants. It is time we said, yes to who He is and begin to represent Him in His fullness! The action of the rule and reign of Christ starts in the church. God chose the church to be His verb.
