THE SINGLE PREPOSITIONTHAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER (Continued)
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by His grace, To reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. _ Galatians 1:15-17.
Although others in the Apostle Paul’s company when he was on the road to Damascus saw the Light, they could not hear the Voice. Paul became intimately familiar with the simplicity in Christ and how the mind can be corrupted from it as the serpent beguiled Eve. He warned that there is another gospel out there that produces another spirit (2 Corinthians 11). His separation culminated in his realization that we were raised and seated together with Christ in heavenly places (Colossians 3:1; Ephesians 2:6). It is so gloriously fulfilling to realize that God always lands us in a position of rest with Himself.
One of the most feared Books in the Bible is The Revelation of Jesus Christ. That amazes me seeing that the first Words of the Book are, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass..." Why should the unveiling or uncovering of Jesus Christ be a fearful thing to the believer?" This glorious Book describes our Lord and His Finished Work in signs and language of the Spirit. Allow Him to demonstrate His Work in us and watch Him begin to flow out of us. It is a quick work that truly comes to pass from within us shortly after we truly believe! What fear? For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3). It pleases God to reveal His Son in us!
