THE LOOK PUT ON JESUS. BY FABIAN MASSA

In the famous passage of Hebrews 12.2 "They set their eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of the faith, who for the joy set before him suffered the cross, despising the reproach, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" , the author of the letter insists that the true believer, the Born Again, must have a Christocentric vision, focused on Christ.

A look focused on Jesus, would leave out any peripheral vision, that is, to men. If all the believers were subject to Christ, there would be no divisions or sectarianism in the Church, there would be no controversies on the basic theological issues, there would be no denominations, we would simply be "plain Christians".

To focus on Christ is to die to the stardom of the "I", is to renounce being served and understand what to serve, in the horizontality of the N.T. where we are all part of the Body of Christ, having the same importance and the same baptism, although different gifts to give to the Church. In the horizontality of the Church of the N.T only Christ is the head (1 Corinthians 12).

In the simplicity of N.T. the "Temple" is no longer physical, but is in the heart of the Born Again (2 Corinthians 6.16; 6.19). In the design of the Church of N.T. each of us are priests at the service of the Father (Rev. 1.6).

In the N.T. no longer runs the priesthood according to the Order of Aaron, it is not necessary the "Temple" and the Church (Ekklesia) is the Meeting of the Born Again, no matter where they meet: A park, a square, a house, a catacomb The N.T. brings the change of the fixed and material, so spiritual and mobile:

1. In the A.T. the Temple is physical (immobile), the ritual purification (external), the bloody sacrifices, the Presence (Shekinah) was concrete on the Ark of the Covenant, the revelation of the Word only had the prophet. Only the priests had access to the Holy Place and only the High Priest to the Holy of Holies.

2. In the N.T. the temple is in the heart of the believer (it is mobile), the purification is by faith in Christ and not by rituals, bloody sacrifices or fasts of food or drink, the Presence is about the life of each Born Again, the revelation of the Word is for all true Christians, as prophesied by Ezekiel (11.19) and Jeremiah (31.33). We all have access to the Throne of Grace (Hebrews 4.16) and can speak with the Father with confidence, without intermediaries.

If every believer sought to look to Christ through Scripture, there would be no discord in "Christianity." The study of theology seriously aims to look at Christ, with the least possible distortion.

To look to Christ is for those who understand that there is going to be persecution, for the sake of His Name, that False Teachers and False Prophets will arise (Matthew 24.9-13) but also says that whoever perseveres to the End will be Saved. The only way to be saved is not to take your eyes off Jesus, without turning aside to look at the False Teachers who are already up, to which they are easy to recognize: They are the "Great Anointed Ones" the "Mega Shepherds", the " Apostles and Prophets of Prosperity ", those who appear on TV. with pompous speeches of Power without any power.

In almost all of Paul's letters to the Corinthians and the Galatians, the Apostle urges them to conform to theology, to the Sound Doctrine (which is The Word of God) to be free from religiosity.

2,000 years passed and most of the Churches are still in the same problems as those of Corinth and Galatia: full of religiosity, Judaizing and / or pagan and empty of theology and Word.
Following a False Master makes you a False Disciple.
Week 70 is about to begin, do not stay out.
