The Message of Christ by Francois du Toit

The word theology means the Logic of God. God does not expect us to respond in an UNION 101unintelligent way to the greatest revelation of knowledge and understanding that man could possibly perceive; nor to remain in a haze of confusion concerning our origin, our identity, our eternal destiny and our present standing before him.

Our Heavenly Father has made it possible for us to come into the same understanding, to enjoy an equal appreciation of that which he himself enjoys.

True companionship only makes sense in an environment of mutual compatibility. The mission of Jesus was not to add to the mystery of Deity but to bring absolute clarity regarding the person of God as the Father of the human race!

“If you have seen me, you have seen the Father”.

Any idea that we could have had of God that is unlike Jesus would not be true about God! In Jesus the forgotten Father of the human race introduces himself again as our only true Father. Eph 4:5 There is only one faith! Not what we believe about God but what God believes about us! Eph 4:6 There is only one God. He remains the ultimate Father of the universe.

We are because he is. He is present in all; he is above all, through all, and in all.(He is not far from each one of us; in him we live and move and have our being. We are indeed his offspring. [Acts 17:24-28]) 1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. In Jesus God has gone to the ultimate extreme to show his desire for us “to know, even as we have always been known.” 1 Cor 13:12.

The Greek word in Romans 6:11, [logizomai] literally means to make a calculation to which there can only be one logical conclusion. In the context of the gospel this conclusion means that God included man in Christ; we co-died and were co-raised with him, we co-exist in union with him. This is the essence of the message of Christ.
