The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Manifestation of Christ, #21

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (Revelation 22:11)

The wall of the new Jerusalem, and the city itself, are being constructed today in the hearts of the saints. The glory of the Lamb and His Wife has not been revealed as yet, and so the work goes on in the midst of the darkness and confusion of the world. It is an inner, spiritual work wrought in the hearts of the believers. The Kingdom of God is a seed planted in the heart.

The whole world is in travail today. All things are moving toward maturity and definition. The wicked will become powerfully wicked and the righteous will become powerfully righteous. The days of division are here. Multitudes are in the valley of decision. The opportunity for double-mindedness is disappearing rapidly.

The events of the future will compel a separating of the Bride from all spirits that are not of the Lord Jesus. The members of the Bride will leave religious Babylon (man-directed Christianity) and enter the romance of Christ.

Let the righteous be righteous and the wicked be wicked! Make the way of the Lord straight and easy to find and follow!

Christ and His saints are here on the earth now and the Glory of God is in them. When the trumpet of God sounds, the Glory of God will be manifested in the saints (the great majority of whom will have returned from Heaven with the Lord Jesus) and also will be manifested in Christ Himself in the sky above the earth.

It will not be the coming of Christ and His saints from a far distant place; rather, it will be the revealing of that which is concealed by the limitations of the material realm. As soon as the limitations have been rolled back, in the sky above and also in the bodies of the saints, the nations of the earth will see and respond to what never had been far from them.

The marriage of the Lamb is at hand. Let us make ourselves ready, for His coming will not result in a change of what we are (except for our bodies) but rather in a manifestation of that which we have become by His painstaking transformation of our personalities and His entrance into us.
