Curiously, this key passage on page, 544 of The Final Passover
was the only one I found (so far) that did not convert to text with
GOGGLE'S new OCR facility. Here is the beginning of this section 2.
So does the light of Divine truth shine upon the Church.
development of eternal life, so that all who live find
the true end of their being fully attained in the fruition of His love.
BY THE LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT OF LOVE.
As the Holy Ghost communicates to us the nature of Christ, so He absorbs us into the Personality of Christ. Christ, the Head, dwells in us by the Holy Ghost, not only as a representative, but as a unitive power. Our own personality is not great enough to use the Divine nature. We have to grow up into Him in all things, that He may act in us and through us. His indwelling Presence communicates to us supernatural powers, and outshines all our natural infirmities, so that in the glory of His Personality we may be worthy of that Divine nature. The Divine nature cannot be communicated as an entity separable from His Personal Presence.
We are regenerated along with Him, but in Him, so that we retain our regenerate life only by holding Him as the Head. The Church is not a society of men believing in Christ as an external object of adoration, but abiding in Christ as the ever-present Source of all actions, filled with His wisdom, thrilling with His joy. The life of the Church in union with Christ is as true and as perfect as the life of the Son of God in union with the Father. The Holy Spirit of eternal love perfects this union indissolubly, so that God may be all in all, and the whole creation, being delivered from, the bondage of corruption, shall rejoice to have the ideal of the creative predestination accomplished in its own perfection by the incarnation of the Son of God, the Creative Word.
