Weekly Pursuit – Week 4 of December

Verse:

John 12:23~24 “And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless the grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”

Excerpts:

The release of the glory of Christ’s divinity was His being glorified by the Father with the divine glory (John 12:23-24) in His resurrection through His death (Luke 24:26).

The release of the glory of Christ’s divinity was to cast fire on the earth. In Luke 12:49 He said, “I have come to cast fire on the earth, and how I wish that it were already kindled!” This fire is the impulse of the spiritual life, an impulse that comes from the Lord’s released divine life… When Christ was baptized with the baptism of His death on the cross, the glory of His divinity was released. From the time of His resurrection a fire has been burning on earth. This fire started from Jerusalem, and then it spread through Judea and Samaria to the uttermost part of the earth. Today this fire is burning all over the earth—in America, in Russia, in Romania, in Poland, in Brazil, in Africa, in Australia, in New Zealand.

Christ today is a burning fire. We all have been burned by this fire; we have been brought together by this fire; and now we are burdened that this fire would burn many others. When the concealed glory of Christ’s divinity was released, a divine fire was cast on earth to burn the whole earth. Let the fire burn on! No one can stop it. (The Issue of Christ Being Glorified by the Father with the Divine Glory, chaps. 1~2)
