 28G.   The Great Value Of The "One New Man"

 


In accordance with God's plan, the creation of the One New Man is Christ's way of achieving peace God, for all men called out by God to be in union with Christ.

In the eyes of God, Christ (the Head) and the Church (His Body) is the One New Man. Just as Christ is important in the life of man, therefore, His Body, the Church, is as valuable. To reject Christ Body, which is Christ's Church, is tantamount to rejecting God's way of putting people right with Himself.

28G.1   What was the result of the creation of the One New Man? 

In Ephesians 2:15, this is written:

having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, (Eph:2:15, NKJV)

Apostle Paul declares "thus making peace"

28G.2   What is this peace referred to by Apostle Paul?

In Romans 5:1, we find this clarification:

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (Rom:5:1, KJV)

This peace is specifically referred to by Apostle Paul as "peace with God" through our Lord Jesus Christ.

28G.3   What is the great significance of this Peace with God?

In Romans 8:1, Apostle Paul declares:

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (KJV)

The great significance of this "peace with God" is the absence of condemnation.

Which is this condemnation?
The judgment or sentence for man's sin's on the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is the second death in the lake of fire.

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:14, NKJV)

But to whom is this "peace with God" exclusively reserved for?
This "peace with God"" is exclusively reserved for "all those who are in Christ Jesus.

28G.4   Who are these people who are "in Christ"Jesus?  How did they come in union with Christ, so Christ can answer for their sins and attain "peace with God" thus freeing them from condemnation which is the second death in the lake of fire?

In Ephesians 5:23, 25, &30-32, it is explained:

23. A husband is to be the leader of wife like Christ is the Leader of the people called out by God. He is the Savior of the body.
25. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved those called out by God. He gave his life for them.
30. We are members of Christ's body.
31. : ``This is why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The husband and wife will become one flesh.''

32. This is a great secret. (I am talking about between Christ and the people whom God has called out.) (IEB)

This is a great secret: In the eyes of God, Christ (the Head) and His Body (the church consisting of the people whom God has called out) is the "One New Man". They are joined together (made in union) by God and are considered as one flesh (likened to a husband and wife).  Thus, Christ is the Savior of the Body—the Church. Those who are "in Christ" Jesus are members of His Body—the Church..

The great value of the creation of the One New Man is the attainment of Peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  This Peace with God is the absence of condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, which is the Judgment for man's sin on the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The second death in the lake of fire.
