Jesus Christ In the Volume of the Book

One of the greatest statements in the New Testament of Holy Scripture is this description of Christ. He is not just the only Begotten Son, He is the fullness of the total Holy Bible. He is the volume of it, the total message and the perfect revelation of all revelations. He is in Himself the fullness of the Word.

The words in this great statement reflect the words of the Son about the Father and then His response. “In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God” (Hebrews 10:6-7). The Father had no pleasure in the multiple sacrifices of animal blood. He was sick of them. So the Son said, “Lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of me.”

The entire First Covenant is a testimony of the Son, a word picture of His Sovereignty over all things. I am listing for you the Son of GodÂ’s reflection in every First Testament portion of the Bible. Pause a minute with each of them.

A life that is perfectly willing to die with Him in His Cross will then resurrect with Him in His Life. This speaks of the present not the future. “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection” (Romans 6:4-5).

There is no Spirit filled life until there is death to self. The Blood of Christ is fully capable to sanctify and cleanse your total person so that His total Person in you is life, “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11).
