What is common to the genuine saint # 1

Posted by appolus on December 23, 2019

An awareness of the actual presence of God. In other places it is described as the manifest presence of God. It used to be written about a lot but I don’t find that anymore. Christendom has been so inundated by soulish activities and music that at least a couple of generations have grown up in Christendom knowing nothing of the manifest presence of God either personally or corporately. They have never felt that holy heaviness come down from heaven and rest like dew upon their heads, then filling every part of who they are. Quieting them, lowering their heads. Raising their hands in surrender and worship. Not in response to the words of a “worship leader,” but in response to the awareness of Gods presence. A presence that stills their very souls and elevates them to the throne of grace where they can only whisper “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty,” lest they take any attention away from a Holy God who has come down to rest upon them. Awe and majesty and reverence accompanied by rivers of tears flowing from their very depths and a deep, deep inner sense of wholeness and of all things being possible.

This is “the knowing.” It is not a matter of the head, no not at all. It is a matter of the heart. If you have encountered the resurrected Christ, the Son of the Living God, then you will have experienced the burning glow of His glory in the very depths of your heart. A woman from my hometown, who had just very recently got saved but had known nothing of genuine Christianity described her salvation in this way “it is as if someone has lit a candle in my heart.” How wonderful, what a perfect description of a new heart in a new creature. Has the Lord Himself lit a candle in your heart? Has your heart burned in the presence of God? The awareness of God, an essential element of true and genuine Christianity. Perhaps not in perpetuity but certainly along the way.
