The Lost Secret
In essence, the lost secret now revealed is that we humans were never created to be self-dependent or self-operating. There is no such thing as an independent human self. We were marvelously created in God’s likeness to function spontaneously as expressers of Himself. Ultimately we will manage His universe as co-heirs with His Son, permanently operating in His perfect other-love nature.
But by the law of the universe we understand that nothing can function except by having its opposite, just as light operates by swallowing up darkness. So we can only know and operate our human personhood by being confronted with the opposite: the false deity of the opposite sin nature, which is self-for-self.
We started our fallen human lives from the Garden of Eden by being occupied by that false deity and expressing his nature as though it were ours. Then our Saviour Christ, in His other-love nature, took our place as our Last Adam, representing us in His Calvary death and being “made sin” as us. In that death as us, out went that sin-spirit; and in His resurrection as us, in came His Spirit of self-giving love.
