* The blanket of man’s inner covering is the outer flesh. From ages long past man’s sole motive has been to look for “coverings” as he begins to freely claw and develop a deep sense of insecurity. The insecurity is a result of “darkness on the face of the deep.” To reach heaven the “tower of confusion” has been his lot. For man’s greatest enemy is within the inner man.
* Life is not a bed of roses; for even roses have thorns in themselves. Man’s attempt to struggle free from “thorns” have led him into an ever deepening grip of futility. For man will never conquer himself; long as the warfare abides. The “in-touch” with the supernatural is “natural” for man as he was designed to be. Satan garbs himself and masquerades skillfully as an angel of light. History reveals men like Hitler as the personification of Satan in power. Therefore the Son of the Most High had to come in the personification of Jesus Christ camouflaged in a manger.
* Life is ever wrapped up in dusty“coverings,” for man was made from the dust of the ground. Man’s grave-cloth belongs to the tomb thereby he had to be clothed with a “heaven-made” of an imperishable skin. A seed was sown in the manger; in a cradle despised by people with highly sophisticated moral values. But it was the Seed that was to bear eternal fruits. This very Seed was sown in “uniformity” but it is reaped in “diversity” (Universality). When the fullness of time had come, the Seed in the cradle became the very cornerstone of man’s eternal triumph. One seed killed the entire human race; but one Seed gave life to the entire creation. The “Last Man Standing” is the finished work; for God rested on the seventh day.
* There is a power within where the power is without. For God put a “treasure” inside the tomb never to taste corruption again. For the“treasure” contains a power to “be” and a power to “do.” Wherever his “treasure” is, man’s heart will be also. Through one Man the “ treasure” is buried within the inner man. Victory has resounded throughout the corridors of history. Therefore the “chief end of man is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever!” (Shorter Catechism of Westminster Assembly).
