The Centrality Of Christ


The Occupation of Heaven is Christ: Every word that God speak is Christ (John 1:1-2). The power of God is Christ, the wisdom and ways of God is Christ (1Cor1:24,30). Everthing that God does is Christ. God the Father is occupied and busy with Christ. The work of the Holy Spirit is to teach Christ. The Holy Spirit is sent to reveal to us the word of Christ (John 16:13) and remind us of what Christ had taught us (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us, in us and through us unto the world. The occupation of the Holy Spirit is Christ. All the angels in Heaven are busy worshipping Christ (Heb 1:6). The whole of Heaven is occupied with Christ, for Christ is the occupation of Heaven.
The occupation of Hell is Christ: What is the activities in hell all about? Is it about Christ? Hell is raging and demons are running up and down because of the procession of the glory of Christ. The Devil and the demons are drive by the fear of this one man. They have become restless because of him and all there activities is because of him. The whole of hell is in crisis, it is busy and occupied with Christ.
The occupation of the whole universe is Christ: The old creation of God is a picture of Christ and it main purpose is to reveal Christ to the world. "The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard. Their line a has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world." (Psa 19:1-4). The universe is so huge that you cannot journey to the ends of it neither can one discover everything on earth and in the whole universe. This is telling us that there exist "the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Eph 3:8). For as the universe is unsearchable, Christ is also unsearchable. The universe is a picture of Christ. Christ is inexhaustible, you can talk about Christ from now to the next 100 year and yet still be in introduction. One cannot explore the whole of Christ. Only those who doesn't know the riches of Christ get bored with the subject of Christ and desire to go into other topics.
The occupation of Christians is Christ: Our work as Christians is to search and discover the unsearchable riches of Christ. Christians are voyagers journeying to the length of Christ; like treasure haunters searching for the riches in Christ; like astronauts souring into the height of Christ; and like sea divers diving into the depth of Christ. We are in constant search for the riches of Christ because our highest goal is to attain and manifest the fullness of Christ. Christians seek to know Christ, fix our eyes on Him and manifest Him. Christ is the occupation of Christians.
The occupation of the world is Christ: Everybody on earth are busy studying and chasing after shadows of Christ. Because everything in this world are only shadows of which Christ is the reality. Those who doesn't know Christ spend all their life chasing His shadows. Whether they like Him or not, whether they believe in Him or not, day and night they are occupied with Christ. "Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas,..." (1Cor 3:21-22). All men belongs to us (the Church), everything they own belongs to the body of Christ, all that they invent and discover belongs to the body of Christ. Therefore all men are busy trying to discover or invent things that may be useful for the Church to carry out her mission. The business of everybody on earth is Christ whether they like it or not.
All the activities in heaven, earth, hell and the universe is centered around Christ, they all evolves around one Man. Yes, every activity you see is all about this one Man. God, angels, demons, men and every created being is busy and occupied with nothing else but Christ.
