Jottings – I See Christ in the Glory

“Future

When I see Him in that glory, instead of seeing my sins, I see that they are gone. I have seen my sins laid on the Mediator. I have seen my sins confessed on the head of the scapegoat, and they have been borne away; Leviticus 16. So much has God been glorified about my sins (that is, in respect of what Christ has done on account of my sins), that this is the title of Christ to be there, at the right hand of God. I am not afraid to look at Christ there. Where are my sins now? where are they to be found in heaven or on earth? I see Christ in the glory. Once they were found upon the head of that blessed One; but they are gone, never more to be found. Were it a dead Christ, so to speak, that I saw, I might fear that my sins would be found again; but with Christ alive in the glory the search is in vain. He who bore them all has been received up to the throne of God, and no sin can be there.

    Dear Scott, Not long ago I read another by article by Mr. Darby with a very similar flavor, as he was commenting on Philippians chapter 3. Here is an excerpt from this excellent ministry. “If any thought the flesh could be gloried in, Paul could show that he had more therein to glory in than they. But Christ in Glory revealed Himself to Paul, and then Paul could say ‘what things were gain to me, those I counted loss, etc, that I might win Christ’ what was the state of Paul’s soul? I Must Gain Christ!” Mr. Darby goes on to comment about righteousness (this is very good) “I have suffered the loss of all things, and do esteem them but dung,that I may win Christ and be found in Him – not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God By Faith”.

    There is Much, Much More in this most excellent article. “The Power of Christ in Resurrection and Glory”

    The impact on the believer, that is the impact of considering The Christ in Glory, is immense. To think and meditate long on the glories of the risen CHrist is that which will supply us with the power to “live above” the ugliness of the world around us. It will give us the power of heart and soul to walk apart from the wicked world around us. These conclusions are reached when we read and consider this ministry left behind by that servant of the Lord, John Darby.
