I. In the Bible there is a mysterious thought concerning the relationship between God and man (Gen. 1:26; Ezek. 1:5, 26; 1 John 3:2b; Rev. 4:3a; 21:11b):
II. God’s purpose in His creation of man was to have a corporate man to express Him and to represent Him (Gen. 1:26);
III. The goal of the Lord’s recovery is to bring forth a full-grown corporate man (Eph. 2:15; 4:22-24; Col. 3:10-11);
IV. In order to arrive at a full-grown corporate man for the fulfillment of God’s purpose, we must enter into the fourth stage of the experience of life (Eph. 4:13);
