Pleroma – Part 5 . Pleroma speaks to the fullness of God. His fullness is used to fill various gaps in Adamic history as it pertains to His eternal purpose and will. One of these gaps is identified between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. This lesson discusses the role of angels in this gap and the fact that Christ was made a little lower than the angels so He could suffer death and be raised to save man as it is said in Hebrews 2:9 (KJV) “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” GRACE (God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense) was given to those who receive Christ. By FAITH (Forsaking All I Trust Him), the Christian is built up in the divinely implanted principles of God (DIPOG) by the word of God. As Hebrews reminds us in Hebrews 11:1,6 (KJV) “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” This faith is placed in Christ and His word as stated in Romans 10:17 (KJV) “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” If Christianity departs from the word of God, there is a disconnect from the very source that builds up Christian faith. The lesson on July 6, 2003 studies the Hebrew words “tohuw and bohuw” which describe an overthrow that occurred between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 which is one of the gaps that were filled by the pleroma of God. It discusses the role of angels in this overthrow as we learn that angels are not in the plan to manage the world to come as said in Hebrews 2:5 (KJV) “For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.” This lesson is part 5 in a series on “Pleroma”.
