The Vision of God's New Testament Economy

Ephesians 1:9 Making known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Himself, (10) Unto the economy of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth, in Him.

After studying all the books of the Bible for many years, we began to see the overall revelation in the Scriptures concerning God's New Testament economy...in this economy the Triune God became a man in the Son. This means that the accomplishment of God's New Testament economy began with the incarnation. Through Christ's human living, death, resurrection, and ascension, everything necessary for the accomplishment of God's economy was done. After breathing the Spirit into the disciples essentially (John 20:22), the Lord, in His ascension, poured out the Spirit upon His Body economically (Acts 2:17). That outpouring of the Spirit was the completion of the accomplishment of God's New Testament economy. Now the Triune God as the processed all-inclusive Spirit is both within His chosen people and upon them, and with them He is carrying out the New Testament economy. The Lord is propagating Himself by imparting Himself to His believers to make them living members of His universal Body to be His corporate vessel for His expression. Today this corporate vessel is expressed in various localities as local churches, and all these churches are lampstands shining in this dark age. Eventually, all the shining local churches will consummate in the New Jerusalem, which will be the ultimate consummation of God's move in His New Testament economy. The crucial focus of God's New Testament economy is the all- inclusive Christ as our life, our person, and our everything. The divine economy is not focused on any law, regulation, teaching, philosophy, or practice. God's economy is focused on one all-inclusive, wonderful Person. This Person is the embodiment of the processed Triune God, and He is realized as the all-inclusive life-giving Spirit, who is within us and upon us. This Spirit is working in us so that we may be brought back directly to Christ to enjoy Him as everything. I hope that we shall all have a clear view concerning this.
