Now for a brief word on Ephesians 2:13-19:
“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances;for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”
Notice that God didn’t just provide a knot hole through the veil; He “broke it down”; He “took it out of the way”; He “abolished” it; and He nailed it to the cross! In other words, it’s gone. He left no room for the flesh to do anything. Everything that would be done from now on would be done by His Son in the hearts of those who received Him. His Son was the last Adam. There are no more, and there haven’t been any more since Jesus. They were all wiped out at the cross, past, present and future.
“Christ in us the hope of glory” is all that remains for both Jew and Gentile. In Him, and He in us — everything we used to be has been done away. Jew, Gentile, male, female, slave, free: it’s all gone, because He is the point of it all.
And we still don’t get it. It’s like we are still peeking through a knot hole.
