THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH - By Robert Roosendaal

Robert Roosendaal 
Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:1-29, Ephesians 1:22-23

"And He is the head of the body, the church ... that in  all things He might have the pre-eminence" (Colossians  1:18).

Clever philosophers combined their intellectual  treasures in a subtle strategy to divest Christ of His deity  and glory. Significantly the Holy Spirit energizes Paul, a  man of transcendent intellectual skill, to present Christ in  the sphere of His highest glory. Paul could not bear to see  the peerless splendor of Christ eclipsed and exalts Him,  diffusing a brilliance of spiritual light in establishing the  absolute pre-eminence of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Church history unfolds another stunning fact. While  Satan failed to destroy the church through weird  philosophies, it is apparent that he succeeded in  neutralizing Paul's unique message with its heavenly calling   II Timothy 1:15). What heartbreak and sadness are bound    in his swan song. As Paul unveiled God's secret purpose    this age, the stalwart saints of Asia, Galatia and Rome  withdrew systematically, clinging to an admixture of Law  and Grace a tragic fusing of Israel and the Body Church.

Paul was not just another apostle, nor one of the twelve  (Ephesians 3:1, Galatians 2:8,9, I Timothy 1:11-17, I Cor-  inthians 3:9-11). Dispensationally, Paul's revelation was  not a development of Judaism but gloriously new and super  heavenly in scope.

Lift from our eyes, Oh Lord, the blindness that  spawned the terrible dark ages of the church.

Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
ead Acts 16L31 Romans 1:16, and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
