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
[Part 4 of 4]
Man Demands Miracles
____Man was created by a miracle working God, that miracle element is in man. Man yearns
to perform miracles and live in the atmosphere of the supernatural.
____This miracle element in man has made him an inventor, discoverer, and investigator.
has caused him to experiment until he has conquered chemicals, electricity and the air.
____It is this element that has given to us the aero plane, submarine, radio, and wireless, and all the other devices, inventions,
and discoveries that make up our modern civilization.
____The miracle realm is man's natural realm, he is by creation the companion of the miracle working Father-God. Sin dethroned man from the miracle realm but
through grace he is coming into his own. It has been a hard struggle for us to grasp the principles of this strange life of faith.
____Sin has made us workers, Grace would make us trusters.
____In the beginning, man's spirit was the dominant force in the world; when he sinned, his mind became dominant, sin dethroned the spirit and crowned the intellect; but grace is restoring the spirit to its place of dominion, and when
man comes to recognize the dominance of the spirit, he will live in the realm of the supernatural without effort.
____No longer will faith be a struggle and fight but an unconscious living in the realm of God.
____The spiritual realm is man's normal home; it places him where communion with God is a normal experience, where faith in the miraculous, miracle-working God is unconscious, where he will exercise the highest type of faith
and yet be as unconscious of having exercised faith as he is when he writes a check.
