Fullness Part 2
Last month, I finished the piece talking about the fullness of iniquity. This month, I want to continue looking at the concept of fullness of iniquity. Actually, I am going to focus more on the fullness aspect because as I ended last month, it may have seemed very heavy and all about judgment (mishpat). I have an opinion as to why that is. I believe that judgment, or mishpat in Hebrew, is a very misunderstood word. Imagine this for a moment. When I say the word “judgement”, what comes to mind? Is it fire and brimstone? Sodom and Gomorrah possibly? Maybe a judge sentencing someone to prison? Mishpat is translated into English as decision, judgment, dispute, case, claim, measure, and law. In order for mishpat to be administered in an unbiased fashion, there must be some laws or instructions in place detailing how mishpat is administered. In other words, mishpat is the quality of being free from favoritism, self-interest, bias, or deception, especially conforming to established standard or rules as in determining right and wrong on legal matters. Mishpat is all about justice and equality! The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the Almighty of the Universe because he is just and righteous. There is no other elohim like our God. This is what sets Him apart form the rest of the gods.
As the Psalmist declares in chapter 119:142,160, “Your justice is eternal, and your instructions are perfectly true. All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.”
Are His instructions, the Torah, perfectly true and eternal? This is how we not only understand how to live in His Kingdom but understand how He administers mishpat. Is there punishment and reward in mishpat? Most certainly there is. It just depends on which side of the line you fall. This is why it is so important to not only study the Older Testament but apply to our lives.
In other words, if I want to be a “law-abiding citizen” in God’s Kingdom, I need to obey what is written in the constitution. That constitution is the Torah, ladies and gentlemen. This is what the prophecies about the Torah going forth from Zion are all about. When Y’shua returns and takes his proper place as King of the earth, He will use the Torah, the constitution, in order to administer righteous judgment.
How does fullness play into all of this? In case you haven’t noticed it, there is a race going on between the Creator of the Universe and His adversary, and this race is for fullness. The enemy is racing to completely fill the land and people with iniquity in order to bring forth destruction and chaos. Our Creator is racing to prepare you and I to be instruments used in the great end time regathering and restoration. This is why OUR ACTIONS, or the lack of, are so important. We can either add to the iniquity or add to restoration. If we aren’t walking out our call and purpose, then we unfortunately are adding to the iniquity right alongside the abortionists, rapists, murderers, etc. I don’t have space to develop that part but please go watch the “Fullness Intro” video on our website or YouTube channel. I touch on this a little more in detail.
Where are we are currently? Fullness of iniquity rising in a nation DEMANDS a fullness of God response from the body of believers. If this issue of fullness is so important, then we need to define it.
Galatians 4:1-5 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
The Greek word for fullness is pleroma and is translated into English as full measure or completeness. In other words, fullness is the state of having every necessary or normal part, component, or step. The condition is being filled to capacity.
John 1:16 For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
Romans 15:29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Messiah.
The Hebrew equivalent is melo and is translated as that which fills or makes full, full amount, measure, and extent.
Genesis 48:19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great. Nevertheless, his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his offspring shall become a multitude of nations.”
Psalms 24:1 The earth is Elohim’s and the fullness thereof,
This concept of fullness is very important because it is a principle found all throughout the Scripture that oversees the great end-time harvest, the regathering, as well as iniquity which brings about judgment. This concept of fullness is also what brought forth God sending His only son to the earth. When we study history, we can see why Y’shua had to come forth when He did.
When Alexander the Great would conquer a nation, he would make that nation learn Greek because all business and commerce had to be done in Greek, a one world global language, if you will. When Rome came on the scene they took it a step further. They knew that in order to maintain their empire and vassal states they had to build infrastructure (roads) in order to get their legions from one region to another in a rebellion or crisis, a one world travel alliance, if you will.
History teaches us things if we take the time to do a little digging. We can see that due to a universal language and a system of roads linking the then known world together, the environment was adequate and perfect for Y’shua to come forth. The message, the gospel, He brought forth could be understood by everyone due to the one world language and could spread a lot quicker than before due to the one world road system linking everyone together.
Do you guys see how astute and wise the Creator of the Universe is? Is the N.W.O. and the one world government and other conspiracies true? Probably, but we need to stop freaking out. When there was a one world government in place in Rome, God sent forth His son in the fullness of time. If He did it then, he will do it again when another one world government rises to challenge His sovereignty.
