Biblical Church Government – Part 1

The Second Adam, Jesus Christ, reflected that same image in His Own humanity.   First Corinthians 15:22,44-45 and Second Corinthians 4:6.

Christ-ians, as they become increasingly conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, are restored to what man was before the fall (Genesis 1 to 2 and Psalm 8 and Hebrews 2:5-8) — and redeemed from what man became by the fall (Genesis 6:5 & 8:21 and Ephesians 4:24-28).   They are also renewed to what man should become, in spite of the fall (Romans 8:29 and Colossians 3:10 and Second Corinthians 3:18).

This is why Jesus Christ, our great Prophet and Priest and King, proclaimed something very significant at the very beginning of His official Ministry right after His Own Baptism.   “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor.   He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted…, and recovering of sight to the blind.   To preach deliverance to the captives…, (and) to  set at liberty them that are bruised.   To preach the acceptable year of the Lord!”   Luke 4:18-19, cf. especially Zechariah 6:9-15.
