“The stone which the builders rejected is become the Head cornerstone. This is YHWH’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. THIS is the Day which YHWH has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psa 118:23-25
Look again at what is being said here. The stone the builders rejected is about Christ crucified and the cross.
The Day of the Lord is the Light of Christ crucified.
In Peters second epistle his final message to the Church is about growing in the knowledge of Christ unto a specific place, an inheritance. He said,
“increase ye in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; to Him is the glory both now, and to the Day of the age! Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18 YLT.
“The Day of the age” is about living in the Truth and reality of the age of the New Covenant. This is Spiritual knowledge we are to be growing in.
In the beginning, first there was darkness and then second, there was Spiritual light. The darkness represented the first age. The light represented the Second.
It is a Day above.
It is a Day above all the shadow of turning down below in the realm of the earth. The Day we are rejoicing in is not a 12 hour period of natural light. The natural light of the sun moon and stars began to shine on the fourth day.
Jesus spoke of only two ages.
“Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come, eternal Life” Mk. 10:30
You have eternal Life now because you have tasted of the power of the coming age. You cannot taste of something that isn’t present. The first, old Covenant age ended at the cross.
“now once for all, at the completion of the ages, He has been manifested for putting away of sin through the sacrifice of Himself. Heb. 9:26
There is no third age.
False christianity points hearts to the realm of the flesh and blood, and away away from knowing the Spirit of Christ revealed in you. They don’t know a relationship of union. They don’t know what time it is.
Are you rejoicing in a natural day, looking for a natural manifestations? Or are you walking in the Eternal light that has shined out of darkness? It is the Light of Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If you are born of God, this Light is to be seen in your heart.
“God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” 2 Cor.4:6
“Knowing the time, that it is now the hour for you to be aroused from sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we believed. The night is far gone, and the day has drawn near. so let us put on weapons of the light.” Rom. 13:11-12 LITV.
It is the full Day of the Lord.
In this Day, He is all.
The Spirit of Jesus Christ in you is your whole relationship with the Father.
He is the New Covenant.
“I–this is My Covenant with them, said Jehovah, My Spirit” Isaiah 59:21 YLT.
He is all. He is the Seed that fell into the ground and died. He is the Resurrection and The Life of Spiritual birth living in you. He is the Head of the resurrection body. He is the Testator Who died, testifying of an eternal inheritance. He is also the Heir Whom the Father has placed in you “for a covenant of the people; to establish the earth, to cause [you] to inherit the desolated inheritances” Isaiah 49:8
The words of the Bible testify of Him. They are promises. The revelation of Christ causes the words of the Bible to be seen for what they are.
Words. Words that testify of The Person of The Word.
The testimony speaks of a promise. The witness experiences The One promised. In witnessing the One they spoke of, the promise is fulfilled. In Him you have so much more than words. Christ in you is “more sure” than a promise.
“We have something more sure, than the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until The Day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” 2 Pe. 1:19.
Your heart was created to be made a witness of Christ in you. Only His appearing in you can cause you to Live in, abide in, and fully experience the reality of this “eternal inheritance” which is the New Creation in Christ.
“He is the mediator of a New Covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.” Heb. 9:15 ESV
