Christ manifesting himself to his people



Christ manifesting himself to his people

“Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?” 
John 14:22

Suggested Further Reading: 
2 Corinthians 12:1-10

I was reading a short time ago of a Mr Tennant. 
He was about to preach one evening, and thought he would take a walk.

 As he was walking in a wood he felt so overpoweringly the presence of Christ, and such a manifestation of him, that he knelt down, and they could not discover him at the hour when he was to have preached. 

He continued there for hours, insensible as to whether he was in the body or out of the body; and when they waked him he looked like a man who had been with Jesus, and whose face shone.

 He never should forget, he said, to his dying day, that season of communion, when positively, though he could not see Christ, Christ was there, holding fellowship with him, heart against heart, in the sweetest manner. 

A wondrous display it must have been. You must know something of it, if not much; otherwise you have not gone far on your spiritual course. 

God teach you more, and lead you deeper! “Then shall ye know, when ye follow on to know the Lord.” Then, what will be the natural effects of this spiritual manifestation? The first effect will be humility.

 If a man says, “I have had such and such spiritual communication, I am a great man;” he has never had any communications at all; for “God has respect unto the humble, but the proud he knoweth afar off.” 

He does not want to come near them to know them, and will never give them any visits of love. It will give a man happiness; for he must be happy who lives near to God. 

Again: it will give a man holiness. 
A man who has not holiness has never had this manifestation. Some men profess a great deal; but do not believe any man unless you see that his deeds answer to what he says.

For meditation: 

The above account may be a blessing or a temptation to you! 
If we seek experiences for their own sake, Satan will ensure that we get some; our business is to seek to know Christ more and more (Philippians 3:10; 2 Peter 3:18).

knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.
