The Resurrection is Christ living.
It’s all Him.
So let us come to Him. Come to this open heaven. Come to the very witness of God.
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is GREATER; because this is the witness of God which He has witnessed about His Son” 1 Jn. 5:9 LITV
The witness of God is greater because this is God’s own seeing in you. Come to the Fathers knowing of nothing other than His Son. The Father only sees His Son Jesus Christ, He does not look on another.
“To this Man only will I give attention” Isaiah 66:2 BBE.
May His view come to govern the focus of our heart. Our only relationship with the Father is Christ living and loving within.
The Fathers view of Salvation is a Person.
His revealing of His Son in you is the witness of God.
This witness is greater than anything that can be seen with natural eyes, or natural understanding. The witness of God is greater than any works man can perform, greater than any words man can read, and greater than, any concepts man can imagine.
The witness of God is God’s own seeing of Christ, One New Man. This Man is salvation. Salvation is “Not I but Christ” living in you.
Nothing matters like Who’s inside.
“God is Spirit”. Man was just a soul. The witness of man is only men seeing. The witness of God is greater because it is His eternal perspective in you. There is no spirituality except Jesus Christ living, seeing and animating His body. This spiritual Man is neither sin conscious or self conscious.
“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two stones in his hand, he was not conscious that his face was shining.” Ex. 34:29 BBE
If you are looking at yourself you are looking at the wrong house, the wrong man, and the wrong witness.
“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, WHEN did we see you hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? And WHEN DID WE see You a stranger and welcome You, or naked and clothe You?” Mt. 25:35-38
Look at how these sheep are unaware that they are doing anything right or wrong. They are unaware that they were feeding Him, giving Him drink, clothing Him, visiting Him.
Look to Him.
In looking to Him we let go of self assessment. In seeing Him we Let go of self focus. In knowing Him let go of the witness of man, with all of its judgments of outward appearances.
Turn to see the witness of God. It is the seeing of Christ in you.
This is one judgment.
Man’s assessment of anything can never determine greatness.
The greater works are foolishness to the natural man, because the greater witness is within.
“I tell you truly, He that believes in Me, the works which I do, that one shall do also, and GREATER than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” Jn. 14:12 LITV
The greater works are not more spectacular works for the eyes of man. They are greater in that they are His working in you. The greater works are an expression of His eternal finished work.
“The One doing the truth comes to the Light, that His works may be revealed, that they exist, having been worked in God” Jn. 3:21 LITV.
They are the increase of One Who is complete and permanent. They are that which is of, and out from God’s rest in Christ. Since these works are the expression of His Divine nature they cannot be seen by natural eyes. Man may witness external acts but only the witness of God knows the the motivation. The greater witness is Gods view of greater works.
We can only follow Christ or follow our eyes. When we experience this greater inward witness, then we follow our eyes no more.
The witness of God is an open heaven.
“Because I said to you I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see GREATER things than these. And He says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, from now on you will see heaven opened, and ‘the messengers of God ascending and descending’ on the Son of man.” Jn.1:50-5, also Gen. 28:12.
“And when they saw Him, they were amazed” Lk. 2:48
