God has made Christ the source of our life;
God has made Christ our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
We receive from the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost to see and hear what God is doing and saying. “When one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:16-18).
We receive the glory from Jesus that he received from the Father, so we can become perfectly one with God our Father and his Christ (John 17:20-23). We receive one Life that Lives eternally, to know God and his glory of Christ, now and is to come.
“Waiting depends not on God’s providence, but on our fitness. The Holy Spirit’s influence and power were at work before Pentecost, but He was not there. Immediately Our Lord was glorified in Ascension, the Holy Spirit came into this world, and He has been here ever since. We have to receive the revelation that He is here. The reception of the Holy Spirit is the maintained attitude of a believer. When we receive the Holy Spirit, we receive quickening life from the ascended Lord. It is not the baptism of the Holy Ghost that changes human beings, but the power of the ascended Christ coming into your life by the Holy Ghost that changes you…The baptism of the Holy Ghost is not an experience apart from Jesus Christ; it is the EVIDENCE of the ascended Christ. The baptism of the Holy Ghost does not make you think of Time or Eternity, it is one amazing NOW. “This is life eternal that they might know Thee.” Begin to know Him now, and finish never” ~Oswald Chambers
