#71 A New Administration                                                                   October 30, 2008

The constant barrage of information regarding the upcoming change in presidential administrations can serve as a reminder to consider the greater global Administration that all humankind has been living under since the Day of Pentecost.

It is not an administration of man’s dealings with man like the upcoming election will bring.  It is an Administration of the One True God, the Lord God Almighty, the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ and His dealing with man; how He has chosen to relate to and conduct His affairs with all of humankind.  According to Ephesians 3:2 it is:
The Administration of the Grace of God.
If ye have heard of the dispensation [administration] of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

According to Ephesians 3:3-5 no man or group of men had any idea that this great administrational change as to how God would administer His affairs with man was going to take place.  It was a Mystery to all until it was revealed by God.
Ephesians 3:3-5:
How that by revelation he [God] made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Since it is a global Administration available to every man, woman, boy, and girl on the face of the earth, God desires It [The Administration of the Grace of God] to be made known throughout the world.
Romans 16:25-26:
Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

What is this great Mystery?  It is stated quite clearly in Ephesians 3:6:
That the Gentiles [all the other nations and all the other people of those nations; not just the nation of Israel and the people from that nation] should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

All that God promised in the coming Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ, is now available to every person on the face of the earth  including the riches of the glory of The Administration of the Grace of God.
Colossians 1:26-27:
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles [all the other nations and all the other people of those nations; not just the nation of Israel and the people from that nation]; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Only one man bore the ultimate responsibility of the campaign for a new Administration of God and the way God would administrate His Will towards man on earth.  Only one man cast the ultimate deciding vote. That was the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, even he did not know the Mystery of God’s Will, The Administration of the Grace of God, which his life‘s work, culminating in his crucifixion, would make available.  But he faithfully carried out God‘s plan.
Philippians 2:6-8:
Who [the Lord Jesus Christ], being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

And God signified His acceptance of his life’s work, on behalf of humankind according to His Will, not with a statue, not by naming a boulevard after him, but by raising him from the dead,
Acts 17:31b:
whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
And ascending and seating  him at His own right hand,
Ephesians 1:20b:
and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
And made him Lord of all that God has made, formed or created or will make, form or create, second only to God Almighty, Himself.
Philippians 2:9-11:
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

For those who want to take advantage of, benefit from, and enjoy this new Administration, The Administration of the Grace of God, they need only agree with what God has said regarding His Son, confess him as lord and believe that God did in Truth raise him from the dead.  It’s really quite simple, no registration required, no levers to pull.
Romans 10:9:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

By the way, being a child of God living in and according to The Administration of the Grace of God is just a tad better [tongue in cheek] than the same old, same old, of different political administrations. 

The Administration of the Grace of God is the new Administration which began on the Day of Pentecost and continues even to this day until we hear…………………………
