SYNOPSIS: 

—————————————————————————————–

“for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.” – Hebrews 7:19 (NKJV)

 

Our lives are hinged on certain hopes, and all our life endeavours are directed towards the attainment of these hopes. The driver of life is hope – if all of a person’s hope is cut off, the will to live disappears. Also, the quality of our lives is limited to the quality of the summation of our hopes. It is therefore of great importance for us, as believers, to examine the nature of the hope that drives our Christian experience.

 

The bringing in of the new covenant and testament was a bringing in of a new hope, a better kind of hope than has ever been previously received on the earth. One of the greatest predicaments, however, of the present Church is that we have not sufficiently embraced the hope of the new testament.This is mostly because this hope has not been accurately and sufficiently revealed to our hearts. Many believers in the present Church era would admit in sincerity that the average individual Christian experience, which sums into the collective Church experience today is substandard to what we perceive is promised to us in the holy scriptures. We would also admit that the new covenant life and ministry, which is the ministry of righteousness, is of a far more glorious nature than we have thus far come to experience. Paul describes in II Corinthians 3:

 

“But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?

 

For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious.

 

Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech”  – II Corinthians 3:7-12 (NKJV)

 

The potency of a hope is the glory which it possesses. And the glory which a hope sheds on the heart has the capacity to cause a life to be patterned according to the requirements for acquiring the promises of that hope. Every hope is also a promise to the soul, including the hope of the new covenant in Christ:

 

“Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.

 

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil” – Hebrews 6:17-19 (NKJV)

 

We know that “the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Matthew 17:51) when our Lord Jesus Christ gave up the ghost, and that He “has broken down the middle wall of separation” (Ephesians 2:14), which prevented us from drawing near to God. But for the people of God to have the capacity, the confidence, and the ability to move (in a functional sense) into the most holy place, into the “Presence behind the veil”, which is the desired place of our abode in God, “a better hope, through which we draw near to God” (Hebrews 7:19) must be properly introduced to our hearts. The hearts of God’s people will respond adequately when they are made to see the promise of this new hope, which is the promise of the new covenant, of which Paul spoke about when he said about Christ:

 

“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises” – Hebrews 8:6

 

The time has come in the nation of Canada for the true hope of the new covenant to be revealed in the churches by the Spirit of God. Until this hope is revealed, the Church in this land cannot attain the new testament life because the new testament life cannot be attained until the hope of the new covenant is seen.

 

The quality of this great hope is characterized by the nature of its promise. The hope of the new testament is an eternal hope with eternal promises. It is not ephemeral or earthly. The greatest challenge that faces the Church in Canada and the rest of the world today, which is the primary challenge of the new testament minister, is moving the focus and attention of the Church (God’s people) from things which are seen to things which are unseen. The Church will only receive and function in her eternal identity when this challenge has been overcome. A church that has a greater appetite and drive for things which are seen than they do for things which are unseen is a weak church. A church that responds more to natural things than they do to spiritual things is not functioning in her new testament identity. The present day church by virtue of the sacrifice of Christ and the gift of God is of the new testament order, but the present church, operationally, has not fully migrated into the new testament because we are still clinging to certain alluring elements of the old. As Jesus said, “no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ” – Luke 5:39 (NKJV)

 

“While we do not look to the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” – II Corinthians 4:18 (NKJV)

 

The old covenant was characterized by earthly, natural provisions of God, including wealth, ephemeral prosperity, dominance over natural systems and kingdoms, etc. The people of God, under the old covenant had neither the capacity to receive nor handle Spiritual things. Hence, the nature of the ministry of God to His people in that time and His relationship with them was merely an earthly ‘type and shadow’ of the real, and was void of eternal elements. The new testament, however, is marked by the removal of the natural and the bringing in of the Spiritual. The hope and promise of the new covenant is a living hope which culminates in unseen, eternal, incorruptible, and excellently glorious things:

 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” – I Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

 

The new testament minister is called to develop in God’s people a capacity to hope for things which are not seen, things which are eternal, in the heavens. Every Christian is born a baby spiritually. As no one is born into the natural world as a mature, full grown human being, so also, no one is born again spiritually as a mature believer. A baby does not have the capacity to desire or hope for the right things, and the reasoning of a child is very low and under developed. So also is the reasoning of a child in the Spirit. A child’s desire and reasoning is primarily needs centered. Also, a new born child of God does not have the capacity to look beyond their immediate needs. But as believers begin to grow and they become more knowledgeable about their eternal purpose and destiny, their hope begins to evolve, and they begin to migrate from a needs-centred life to a purpose and destiny driven life. The destiny of a christian is to fully attain the hope of glory, it is this great hope that we live for. As we grow spiritually, this great hope begins to get unveiled in our hearts, and our appetite begins to change. A significant marker of spiritual growth is change in appetite. Maturity is reached when a believer’s hope and expectation becomes aligned with the expectation of God, which is not earthly or temporal, but eternal. This is a requirement for the fulfilment of divine destiny.

 

The hope of the new testament, which must be written and established in the heart of every born again child of God, is the formation of the nature and image of Jesus Christ within. This is the purpose of new testament ministry. Every minister of the new testament must be equipped with this hope, and must labour in light of this hope until the same hope begins to appear in the hearts of men:

 

My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you” – Galatians 4:19 (NKJV)

 

I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.

 

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:25-27 (NKJV)

 

There is a clarion call in the Spirit to this generation, to the churches in the nation of Canada and all over the world, for us to shift our focus to person of Jesus Christ. As His glorious image begins to appear over the churches, we must be ready and willing to behold Him so that we can be transformed individually and collectively into His glorious image:

 

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” – II Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV)

 

There is about to be a great unveiling of this glorious hope over the land of Canada. As the person of Christ becomes our hope and our goal, when communion and oneness with Him becomes the prevailing pursuit in the churches, all earthly pursuits will cease, and the Church will collectively enter and operate in her true identity, in oneness with God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

Such are the company of Believers and Ministers, who will be gathered to hear the Son of God communicate this great hope to His saints at the Believers and Ministers Convention 2014, and it is with such unspeakable joy that we welcome you, as a vital stakeholder in the advancement of the Church of Christ in this city, to be a part of this holy convocation.
