It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
We are made unto our God kings and priests. And from our text today, the honour of a king is in searching out a matter; resolving riddles, dissolving doubts and uncovering hidden mysteries. Your destiny is not your decision, it is your discovery. Sadly, many cannot say what their destinies are, because they simply have not discovered it. And the reason they have not is because they have not searched.
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
JESUS in the passage above found the place which was written of His destiny. The Word found written there in the text implied that He searched. You also must find what your destiny is. You must become very clear about your destination. But for that to happen, you must search. The good news is you don’t have to search too far, it is all written in the Word. The destiny of everyone born of God is already documented in the pages of Scriptures. Can I show you?
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Your destiny and my destiny is Christhood. Nothing more, nothing less. God’s predetermined end for you through all the dealings, experiences, situations, circumstances etc. is that you come to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
This is why Paul writing in Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto JESUS…” (Looking unto our destination, the Endpoint of our journey, the Standard Bearer).
Attaining Christhood is a task that every man that seeks to fulfill destiny in this Kingdom must accomplish. Somebody says, but is that not too much? Is Christhood really my destiny? I will prove it to you in one more Scripture.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
JESUS is that corn of wheat. The purpose of His death was reproduction; not about having people who are almost like Him or close to being like Him. No, exactly like Him.
The Church and many believers have missed this for so long. They are consumed with making Heaven. Well, I don’t have a problem with that; however the bigger deal is not making Heaven, but attaining Christhood. Heaven is the default home of Christ.
Attaining Christhood is your destiny. Galatians 4:19
