In some manner and measure, that life Divine, which is lived
by Almighty Jehovah, in His infinite realm, is to be approached
and approximated by those finite ones who are seeking to be
made conformable to the image of His Son. Such a divine life,
on the human plane, was once lived by the Man Christ Jesus.
This is to be done through an in-wrought transfusion of the
divine-human life of Christ Jesus flowing into common human
creatures, thus lifting them into a heavenly realm by the
life-power of the atonement.
"But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass
the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from
glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" 2
This transforming glory power is a light of revelation,
given to illuminate each step of the way upward, a fire to
burn up the chaff, to consume and separate the dross, a soap
to cleanse away all that is defiling and dusty, a discoverer
to discern the hidden unhealthy conditions that are within
us. It is "A light that shineth in a dark place, until
the day dawn." 2 Peter 1:19.
At times, this power comes through the Word. "For the
word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two
edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul
and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner
of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there
any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things
are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have
to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that
is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us holdfast
our profession" Heb 4:12-14.
At other times, it is with a scourge that the Father deals
with His sons. "My son, despise not thou the chastening
of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him"
Heb 12:5b. To Ezekiel the Lord said, "Though briars and
thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions:
be not afraid." Ezekiel2:6b.
The latitudes and elevations of this spiritual plateau are
not discovered bywatchmen looking out from any natural promontory.
It takes a Spirit-illuminated flashlight to discover light
beyond the letter of the Word. There must be heralds equipped
and sent forth of God. These divinely appointed "announcers"
are presently in a time of preparation for this remarkable
task of heralding a new visitation that will release a full
redemption which will far exceed all past declarations of
There are realms of attainment which God has made available
to believers, that have not been made known in the present-day
circle of teachings, or presently attained to. But now, as
we draw nigh to a time of visitation, the Lord has determined
that these hidden mysteries shall be known, understood, and
entered, for eminent reasons.
(1) To fully honor the exceeding-high cost paid in the atonement.
(2) That Jesus Christ may have a suitable Bride. (3) That
the Husbandman may receive the long waited for precious fruit
of the earth.
"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden,
which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which
none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known
it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as
t is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared
for them that love him" I Cor2:7-9.
