MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
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
*____The Pauline Epistles must ever stand as the work of a super genius or a divine revelation.
reveal what happened on the cross and what followed during the three days and three nights until the Man was raised from the dead. One cannot grasp the great Substitutionary fact in the four Gospels.
can we find the New Creation Revelation ; nor can we discover the ministry of Jesus at the right hand of the Father. The four Gospels give us a sense knowledge view of the Man. The people stood in the presence of His miracles, overwhelmed with a consciousness
that they were in the presence of God. They call Him the Son of God.
____They see Him conquer satan and demons, but there is no intimation that He is going to make them conquerors of demons, of death and
____What He says to them in regard to it is veiled because they are spiritually unable to grasp spiritual realities. They have not yet experienced the strange phenomena of the New Birth.
____So the Pauline Revelation is a master stroke of Divine Grace. It lets us into the inner secret of God's mighty purpose in the Incarnation. In the Gospels Jesus acts like Deity, talks like Deity, dies like Deity,
and conquers death like God.
____He was God manifest in the flesh in His earth walk and He was God in the Spirit in His Substitutionary sacrifice. At God's right hand He has a glorified body and is Head
of the New Creation. You will find that He did a perfect work for us and the Spirit through the Word does a perfect work in us as Jesus is today at the right hand of the Father doing a perfect work for us.
...."He [Jesus] is able also to save forever [completely] those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them".... Hebrews 7:25 NASB
...."In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life
was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light,
but he came to testify about the Light. There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man".... John 1:1-9 NASB
