PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE CENTRED IN THE CROSS

But all this, past, present and future, is centred in one thing. The sovereign rule of God, or the Kingdom of God, is centred in the Cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. For the full realization of that Kingdom everything of the past has been moving toward the Cross. Have you noticed that every new sovereign movement of God in the Old Testament was marked by the Cross? The Cross throughout the whole of the Old Testament was represented by the altar, so you have an altar with Abel, an altar with Noah, an altar with Abraham, an altar with Israel. Every movement of God is marked by the altar, or by the Cross, all pointing toward the great Altar - the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and all future movements of the sovereignty of God begin at, and move from, the Cross.

I want you to grasp this truth. There is no movement of God forward at any time in any matter except on the ground of the Cross. Do you want to go forward with God? Then you must learn something more of the Cross. Do you want to take another step under the government of God? Very well, you must learn something more of the Cross. God's movement forward with His Kingdom is always by way of the Cross.

   The cross = we are dead.  If you took every one of us and peeled us back to our core, the true motive of all, you'd find without exception: SELF.  The cross = an end to all such life and in resurrection the beginning and end of a new life immersed in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.  If you peeled back the life of every true child of GOD, you'd find at the core, as the motive, the love of GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

   The devil has totally captured the nature of self as this world winds down, and the children of GOD will increasingly reflect:  Isaiah 60:1-3   Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
