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
WAY OF GUIDING
[Part 1 of 11]
*____If there is no personal revelation, Christianity is worth nothing. Everyone who believes
in God must have His revelation in their spirit, or else what they believe is not God but mere human wisdom, ideals or words. Such a faith cannot endure the test.
____This kind of revelation is not a vision, a
heavenly voice, a dream, or an external force which shakes the man. One may encounter these phenomena and still not have revelation. Revelation happens in the intuition [spirit, inner man] - quietly, neither hastily or slowly,
soundless and yet with a message.
____How many denominate themselves Christians, though the Christianity they embrace is simply a kind of philosophy of life or of ethics, a few articles of truth, or some supernatural
manifestations. Such an attitude will issue neither in a New Birth nor in a new [recreated] spirit.
____Numerous are these "Christians" whose spiritual usefulness measures up
to zero. Not so are those who have received Christ, for by the Grace of God they have perceived in their spirit the reality of the spiritual realm, which opens to them like the lifting of a veil. Searching with intellect NEVER delivers men; revelation in the
spirit, alone, gives true knowledge of God.
____...."[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries
and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, by having the eyes of your heart[spirit] flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints [His
set-apart ones]".... Ephesians 1:17-18 The Amplified Translation
