Luke 23:44-46 - By now it was about midday and a darkness fell over the whole land, whch lasted until three in the afternoon; the sun's light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus gave a loud cry and said, 'Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit'; and with these words he died.

 

When the veil of self cloaks our hearts, our perceptions are stained by the basic selfish orientation of our nature.
But when one turns to the Lord, the veil of the self-life, like the veil in the temple, is torn in two. This is not the cutting of some thin cloth but the tearing of the heart, the splitting in two of the tightly woven fabric of self-righteousness and self-consciousness.
It is a violent rending, a putting to death, of the unregenerated self-nature.

 

2 Corinthians 3:16 - But whenever a man turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

Luke 13:20,21 - To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three mearures of meal till it was all leavened.

 

Much like light that exposes, or salt that preserves, leaven influences it's surroundings in a subtle but overpowering way. So it is with the infitrating power of the Kingdom of God.
Without a revelation of what God intends to do with His church, we cannot move in overcoming faith.
When the main goal of our faith is to keep us safe from the devil, our faith becomes inferior to what God expects. Jesus had in mind more for us than survival. We are destined to overcome.
Every conversion plunders hell. Every miracle destroys the works of the devil. Every God encounter is an "invasion of the almighty" into our desperate condition. This is our joy.

 

Revelation 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

the above statement :Without a revelation of what God intends to do with His church, we cannot move in overcoming faith.  says so very much. 

 

Our LORD spoke that truth to me through Isaiah 45:11This  is what the LORD says, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Ask of ME things to come concerning MY sons (and then you will be enabled) to command the works of MY hands...

The rabble could not disturb Him; death could not corrupt Him; hell could not keep Him; and the grave could not contain Him!Gravitation could not restrain Him, and God has highly exalted Him and given Him a Name above every name, and at His Name…Continue
