the which is perfect

Then that which is in part shall be done away

We are living in a post-doctrinal era. That one statement strikes fear and outrage in most of the Christians who read it because their whole way of life is based on doctrine. Though each church group practices a different flavor of dogma, all have teaching at the center of their belief system. However, what we all have is, at best, a partial understanding of the truth. Therefore, when that which is perfect comes, that which is in part shall be done away with. Now we see through a glass darkly, and what we see through are darkened shards of an incomplete understanding.

The “perfect” that Paul speaks about is not the canon of scripture, as some assume, it is the perfected Bride of Christ. We are coming into a time where the Body of Christ reaches the fullness and stature of Christ. It is at this time when the five-fold ministry fades into the background because the perfected saints do the work of the ministry.

Here is a truth,

The Bride of Christ is the “perfect” and the New Testament scriptures are the “partial”

What’s been the standard of fundamental Christianity for so long, the Bible, also fades into the background as we hear His voice. People don’t read what God said centuries ago when He speaks to them moment by moment today. What we need to know today, God gives freely; therefore, we don’t pour over His love letters from yesteryear. While we keep His letters in an honored place, now that He is with us, we don’t read them that much.

For many who understand what I have just written, my words seem like blasphemy. They cry “he degrades and discounts the oracles of God!” No, I do not, I am just putting them in their proper place relative to where we are in God. We are the perfected Body of Christ; therefore, because we are near to Him, we hear His word directly.

Knowledge shall vanish

Bible knowledge shall vanish away simply because we are led by His revelation at every moment of every day. Scriptures still exist, they just don’t occupy the same place of importance in our lives now that we are one with Christ. Jesus did the will of God daily rather than reading what others did centuries ago. Though he knew the scriptures perfectly, He didn’t spend all his time in the synagogue pouring over them. Moreover, He did not have to follow the past, because the God of his forefathers led Him in the present.

Jesus says,

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour and hate thine enemy.  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Matthew 5:4-47

Likewise, you believe you must study to show yourself approved, but I say to you that knowledge shall cease, replacing it with pure revelation, received like manna, each and every day. Therefore, your doctrine shall fade in importance as YHWH takes direct control over His future wife.

Throwing off the yoke of bondage

What has taken place, slowly over many centuries, is that the clergy usurped God’s place in people’s minds. They have positioned themselves between God and His people, permitting only what they felt was appropriate. Leaders, filled with their knowledge of good, relegated His Holy Spirit to the corner of people’s lives. Thinking they knew best, they forbid believers to live as God intended. What’s happening now is that God is breaking that yoke of bondage off of the apple of His eye. We are in a post-doctrinal age because God has descended from His holy mountain, taking His rightful place as Lord of our lives.

So says God.
