Something is Happening
Charles Haun, Bible Teacher
Recently I was told by a certain saint that he has been weaned,
not only from watching TV, but from his newspaper and sports
addictions as well. He is among many who are presently being
drawn away by the Lord to live their lives separated from
God is preparing a people for the greatest event since Pentecost.
The apostle Paul carried a burden for this event, which is
"Christ in you."
"My little children, of whom I travail in birth
again until Christ be formed in you" Gal 4:19.
It is possible for us to be in Christ and not bear fruit.
Our being "in Christ" is a judicial fact which relates
to what He has done for us.
"Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he
taketh away" John 15:2a.
But it is impossible not to bear fruit when Christ is in
Our having "Christ in us" means that we have made
room for Him, and have invited Him within. His abiding presence
has become an experiential reality and He is in control.
"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that
abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth
forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
nothing" John 15:5.
Christ desires to come within. In Revelation 3:20, we see
Him standing at the door seeking to gain access to the believer.
This particular "door" is that of the lukewarm Christian.
"So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither
cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest
not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and
poor, and blind, and naked" Rev 3:16-17.
In general, the burden which Paul carried has not yet been
fulfilled in the Bride of Christ, but it shall be. The Holy
Spirit is now working toward its realization.
Consider the parable of the ten virgins in light of the fulfillment
of "Christ in you."
The foolish virgins took no oil with them, but the wise took
oil in their vessels (Matthew 25:3-4). If there is to be room
for oil in our vessels, they must be emptied of the non-essentials.
There must be room within us that has been made available
for Christ to enter and abide.
The Father plans to have a manifestation of "The Hope
of Glory" in this earth. In context with the phrase "all
the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD"
(Numbers 14:21), it is evident that God is referring to people
containing His glory.
"And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and
kings to the brightness of thy rising" Isa 60:3.
Presently, these are being prepared.
