MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate
on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
SATANIC PERSECUTION OF THE RIGHTEOUS
____Jesus said, "Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness' sake.
said, "Blessed are ye when men shall reproach and persecute you." Men do not persecute us for Righteousness' sake. Satan persecutes us for Righteousness' sake.
____Satan fears Righteousness more than any
other thing. On the ground of what God did in Christ for us, when we are Born again, we become the Righteousness of God. That means that we have the ability to cast out demons, to break the power of Satan, to heal the sick, and to raise the dead. Righteousness
gives deliverance from the fear of Satan and his works. It gives a new sense of sonship. This son consciousness begets a heroic faith.
____It takes away the sense of spiritual inferiority, and utterly
destroys sin consciousness in us.
____We can walk before men just as Jesus did, because we know that we are New Creations. The old life has been utterly destroyed. We know that every sin we ever committed
has been remitted.
____We know that the sins that we committed since we were Born Again, ignorantly or otherwise, have been forgiven, and we stand in the presence of God just as Jesus did when He walked
the earth. Dare we take our stand and make this confession boldly?
____Satan seeks to keep us sin conscious and to rob us of our son consciousness.
long as he can keep us sin conscious we are whipped.
____Almost all of the teaching today tends to keep the people under condemnation.
has never realized that its work is to free man from sin consciousness and make him God conscious, son conscious, victor conscious, faith conscious, love conscious.
____When we realize that we have been
born of love and that we have the love nature of God in us, we will begin to show forth the fragrance of heaven. Romans 8:37 "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors." When we become victory conscious, we will arise as a strong man out of sleep
and take our place among the victors.
____The Son has made us free. Let us stand fast in the liberty wherewith His Redemption has set us free.
