Pleroma - Part 1

Pleroma - Part 1. When approaching scripture, you can do it dispensationally which looks at the different periods of administration of God. Yet, there is another way to look at an overview of God’s plan and that is identified in Ephesians 1:8-10 (KJV) which states “Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on...

Pleroma - Part 2. The lesson on May 25, 2003 continues the lesson on the Pleroma but first remembers Memorial Day in America which is the holiday that honors America’s war casualties. A handout was given showing how many Americans have died in each war but emphasis was put on what they died for... preserving the freedoms that were endowed by our creator and embraced in the founding of America. The freedoms we possess of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (or property) truly come from God and are celebrated in the founding documents of America. Spiritually, the bible declares you...

Pleroma - Part 3

Pleroma - Part 3. When you study the “fullness”, the breadth of it covers from before the foundation of the world through the ages to come and beyond . One of the problems we have when studying “the fulness”, is we often focus on the present rather than understanding the big picture. Yet God wants us to understand the big picture as he describes in Ephesians 1:10 (KJV) “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:” God has revealed His wisdom and eternal purpose to...

Pleroma - Part 4

Pleroma - Part 4. The Pleroma = The fullness. This word is applied by Jesus in the New Testament scriptures to identify something that repairs a tear or rip in a fabric, that is subsequently filled by a patch. Pleroma fills the tear or gap. There are many “gaps” in scripture and one of the most important gaps to be understood is identified in Acts 28:28. This is when Christ reveals through the Apostle Paul the start of another gap which He calls The Mystery. This body of truth is what fills the gap between the time of Christ on the cross and when He reigns on this earth in the...

Pleroma - Part 5

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...

Pleroma - Part 6

Pleroma - Part 6. The fullness is what God will accomplish in the end times. In every administration of God, it ends in what appears to be outward failure but that is only to let you realize that God is about something else. Something better than what mankind thought at that time God could be about. This lesson contuies to study the Pleroma handout which you should download and review with all the lessons on the Pleroma. The Garden of Eden is an example of failure outwardly. Sin entered the world with the fall of Adam. Consequently, we have Adam to thank for death. When God kicked...

Pleroma - Part 7

Pleroma - Part 7. The previous lesson on the Pleroma introduced us to Cheribum. This lesson studies the most famous Cheribum, Lucifer. As Ezekiel 28:14-15 (KJV) tells us “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” God created Lucifer as the most anointed cherub. It wasn’t until Lucifer sinned, did he become Satan. Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV) states “How art...

Pleroma - Part 8

Pleroma - Part 8. The actions of man are like building sand castles on the beach in lo tide, only to perish when the sea comes back during high tide. All that mankind does perishes just like the beautiful sand sculptures are gone. Only God creates things that last and the fullness of Christ lasts forever. Only in Christ will man find eternity. Even though the bible begins at Genesis 1:1, we know that God was there even before the beginning so Genesis 1:1 is the beginning of what God chooses to reveal to us. Lucifer was an individual that fell between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. There is...

Pleroma - Part 9

Pleroma - Part 9. The study of the Pleroma, shows that God’s purpose transcends all ages and has been revealed to us through the Scriptures. Even before the foundation of the world, God prepared the way to demonstrate His fullness to principalities and powers, the manifold wisdom of God. For example, Adam was given responsibility over the garden of Eden after a cataclismic event when the original earth was under judgement from the fall of Lucifer. God then re-created the earth in 7 days demonstrating His fullness with Eden. Further, God demonstrated his fullness with Noah, when he...

Pleroma - Part 10

Pleroma - Part 10. There are two great themes in scripture. The first is the sead of the woman which is the promise of the Savior. The second is the emnity between the seed and the serpent. These go through all of scripture until the very end when Satan is chained in the bottomless pit forever. The lesson on August 31, 2003 begins with a review of these themes and how it impacted mankind from Adam on through the calling of Abraham. Abraham was called out of the nations to begin the nation of Israel who God dealt with exclusively. This special relationship was carried on through his...
