14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
God saved from sin, error and evil on the cross of calvary, God regained the dominion He gave to Adam, that the devil stole back when Jesus shed His blood on the cross (the blood of God). He regained, restored, recovered, and repossessed all that was ours that the devil stole.
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Christ looks exactly like the God we have not seen. He is the first born from the dead. He is the first born of a new type of creation that live like God on the earth not to oppress or dominate but to show forth the glory of the Lord. To be exactly as if Jesus is on earth when you are there. For it to be as if Jesus showed up when you show up. Go read Isaiah 53, you are to extend His days. Isaiah says he shall see His seed.
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Jesus was the author of everything created. He is the word made flesh. Everything made in heaven or in earth, everything seen and unseen, thrones (whatever kind of rulers) dominions (whatever kind of ruling power good or bad) principalities (spirits of either the darkness or the light) powers (any kind of power/s), all things were created by Him and for Him so He won't panic if you tell Him about anything
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
There is nothing that was made without His say-so
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
He is the head of the church (any church) He is the beginning and the first born from the dead, the second Adam. In all things He has the preeminence, He rules over all things.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
God was pleased for His fullness to dwell in Christ Jesus. The same way He is pleased to dwell in us when we submit to the Lordship of Christ.
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Havingmade peace through the blood of Jesus. Was there war before? Yes. Man was alienated from God for good because Christ came into the earth to die. When Christ died on the cross, the wrath of God was satisfied in the body of Jesus. Anyone who surrendered to stay under the Lordship of Christ was then made new. The only fulfilment was to submit your righteous (filthy rags) and receive the righteousness of Christ by coming under His Lord. Then you could live the life Adam lived before the fall.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Here's what I was talking about.
Alienated from God meant you were living without everything that He provided for Adam to utilize on the earth. In Christ means you now have access to the favour of God. power to defeat your enemies because you didn't have to fight your enemies, you had a God who could and a God who was committed to responding to your call and who could lead you out of sticky situations and would always turn things to your favour.
It meant that you were on the earth but not alone that you had a God who was on the look out for you not out of duty but out of love.
You had a God who loved you unconditionally and continued to love you as He groomed you on earth to do His will.
You have a God who loves to hear you talk, sing, and laugh with Him and that that is not being crazy but the communion of the Holy Spirit.
There's so much more. If you want to learn more, read John Bevere, read Kenneth Copeland, and Kenneth Hagin and get to know the Spirit of God and how He relates with you.
The Holy Spirit wants you to live a successful life and He will help you if you ask.
