UNSEEN GOSPEL

It’s there and obvious, yet few people really see it. They look for something else, other things that don’t matter in God’s Kingdom. Other things that build only their denominational churches. Aside from John 3:16, the thing that captures the whole plan of God is in what Christ declared: “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

The thing that brought Christ on earth is the LIFE. No other reason. Nothing else is important. If you don’t have that life in abundance in you—everyday, each moment—you miss the whole point altogether. Church and ministry becomes pointless.

If what you seek in Scripture has nothing to do with it, you seek in vain, even if you get titles and degrees in your diligent search. Even if you build a mega church. All you get is the letter of the Word, not the Spirit. “The Spirit gives LIFE…” [John 6.63]

I have met those who get nothing from Scripture but things to debate about. Or the humanity or deity of Christ. Or the meaning of the Parables or other stories and passages, which are all important (except for the debate). Yet, they still miss the point of it all—the LIFE. Everything is just used to preoccupy people during Sunday school, worship services or for denominational doctrines.

You see no one living the LIFE and living it abundantly. I often see either frustrated ambitions or a lot of self-centeredness behind the mask of ministry. The LIFE should give you peace and satisfaction, no wants and no desires. Only meek obedience. “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” You will understand that it’s faithfulness that matters—faithfulness to what God gives you, whether in small or big things. And that possessing big things doesn’t mean anything in the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t mean you are better or greater.

And yet you see churches aiming to be great, pastors aiming to be legends, hungering to build mega churches in their names. In the process, they want to grab anything and everything, ending up with ministry greed. You see everything in church except the LIFE.

Because they have yet to see the Unseen Gospel. The true Gospel of Jesus Christ is covered with the ideals of man and today it is rendered unseen. You see the veneer rather than the true treasure inside. It’s there right under their noses, but they couldn’t see it.

When you give it to those who can read, they will say, “We can’t read it because it is sealed.” When you give it to those who cannot read, they will say, “We don’t know how to read.” And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote. [Isaiah 29]

The Unseen Gospel portion of God’s Flesh aims to open our spiritual eyes so we can see the Gospel in God’s eyes through Christ once more.
