Only through the death of self we become one with God. There cannot be two wills or two personalities in a single person. God the Father gave His only begotten Son death for our sake and in our place. Now He will eliminate our old nature, give death to our self-life and establish His Son in the same place where self has been reigning all these years. “.........it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me...” will become a reality.
As God the Father gave death and resurrection to His only begotten Son, He will also give the same to all His beloved sons. We are all about to walk in soul as well as in body in His resurrection power. Jesus Christ by the exercise of His power to bring everything into subjection to Himself will transform our body of humiliation like the body which He has in His Glory. We who have received the Holy Spirit as a foretaste and pledge of the glorious future, and have been longing and waiting for adoption that is the redemption of our body will very soon experience it. All creation that has been waiting and longing for the manifestation of the sons of God will see God’s sons revealed.
To do this work in us God will use:
Firstly, His Word of rebuke and correction, as He did with churches in the book of Revelation. For whom the LORD loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. The goodness of God will lead you to repentance and you will get the knowledge that God is Holy.
Secondly, His purifying fire - your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged - as He did with Isaiah. It will be a pure work of His mercy and love.
Thirdly, the Cross, for it is in extreme sorrow and brokenness that we cling to Jesus and our soul is united with Him without a medium.
All glory to Jesus, the darling of heaven!
S. R. Manohar
