Through Understanding  The Essence of the Fullness of the Godhead

by Gayle Rogers Ph.D.

I have often heard it said that we are where we are in life because that’s where we choose to be.  Having come to love Christ as I have, and getting just a glimpse of the depth and width of His love for me, I have finally come to understand what that saying means.  We can choose to live mediocre mundane lives, like all the other 97% of the world simply just getting by, or we can join the 3%-ers, becoming the greatest that God has purposed us to become.  (One to three % of the population is successful).  Just think for a moment.  What if every single day of your life you strived to become the greatest Christian, the best evangelist, pastor, prophet, teacher, or apostle, fulfilling the will of God in everything you attempted to do?

Follow closely on a journey with me for a few moments.  Colossians 1:13 says our Father has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed (transferred) us into the kingdom of the Son.  This passage does not say He will, or He can, or even that He might, but He has already transferred us from the power of ignorance, rebellion, disobedience, depression, affliction, poverty, past trauma of sexual abuse manifesting by shame, guilt, rejection and spiritual blindness.  Having already transferred us from this power actually tells us He has given us power to overcome the plan of the enemy, which as you know is to steal, kill and destroy.  Now, journey on a bit further to verse 19, which informs us our Father is pleased His fullness dwells in His Son.  Let’s evaluate what that fullness means to us as sons and daughters of Christ.  Verse 26 and 27 discuss hidden mysteries now revealed to the saints of God that He is now making known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you (and me), the hope of glory.  To bring this journey to a climax, the fullness of the Godhead is in Christ (Col. 2:9-10); and if we are rooted like a tree, and built up like a building on a strong foundation in the faith, then we are complete in Him. 

How does all of this affect you and me?  As we grasp the essence of the fullness of the Godhead--the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, we begin to comprehend the measure of His love, the width, length, depth and the height, which passes knowledge, that we may be filled with the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:18-19).  Receiving the full import of this message, we no longer need the false comfort and illusions that come with shame, fear and rejection, or any other deception binding us from the love of Christ.  You see, it is really not about how much we love Christ, but more of how much He loves us.  That is why we have the power to choose our position in life because of the depth of His love.  Christ, having the fullness of the Godhead, has given us the power to become three percent-ers.  Deuteronomy 30:19 commands we choose life that both you and your descendants may live.  No matter what has happened in your past, it cannot compare to what will happen in your future if you obey the commandment to choose life.  We are all entitled to live long, prosperous lives encompassing good health and vitality.  We cannot be healthy, prosperous, well, and vibrant if we continue to be alienated and enemies in our own minds (Col 1:21).

You must make a decision to change your circumstances or remain where you are.  If you are ever going to accomplish the purposes of God, you must not allow past events to dictate your position.  For every battle you encounter, there is a greater or comparable reward.  Look for the battle anxiously awaiting the greater reward.  Do not concentrate on the battle, but inquire of the Lord when should you fight and when should you wait.  Follow the lives of the Old Testament patriarchs, and see that every single battle they fought after inquiring of the Lord brought rewards. 

Examine what happened with David at Ziglag in 1 Samuel 30:1-2: “Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great . . . Verse 8 says that David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop?  Shall I overtake them?”  And He answered him, “pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” When we inquire of the Lord, He will always give us instructions.  When we follow the instructions, we reap the reward.  David followed his instructions and pursued and recovered all that had been taken from him.  David recovered what the enemy had taken from him because he followed the timing and instruction of God.  God wants to do the same for you and me concerning that which the enemy has stolen.  He wants to restore your self-worth, give you back your dignity, but you must listen and know when to go after it and when to stand still allowing God to do it.  Although you may not ever recover your virginity as a result of rape or molestation, you can recover the virtue that God meant for you to have.  Having the examples of David, Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles, Chapter 20), Esther and others, coupled with the fullness of the Godhead, how can you not accomplish the greatest things on earth?  Freedom and wholeness does not come until you have experienced the essence of the fullness of the Godhead.  You will never, ever want to be bound again.
