-- As the Daystar arises in our hearts.
We are at the end of the age of human folly, at the end of the age of the limitation of God.
For six thousand years mankind has lived separated from God in the imagination of their minds. For two thousand years the Christian Church has waited for a "Jesus-far-away" finally to show up. Yet they are looking for Superman, not Christ, in just the same way that the Jews looked for Superman 2000 years ago.
The Jews rejected Jesus BECAUSE He was a man, just like themselves, living and walking in the likeness of sinful, mortal flesh. They killed Him because they could.
Few can tolerate a God who can be killed, a God who shows up walking the streets of this planet inside of human weakness.
The Pharisees believed that had they been alive in Moses' day, in Jeremiah's day, they would have recognized God in the flesh. Jesus called them on their falseness - they utterly rejected God in the flesh in front of them.
Nothing offends more than a man or woman who was born on this earth, who grew up just like everyone else, who knows all about present-day culture, whose mother and father can be named, whose brothers and sisters can be visited, claiming that he or she walks in oneness with God, that God reveals Himself through them.
Yet man was created to be God's image, to reveal an invisible God in all of His fullness to creation. God formed human flesh to contain all the fullness of God; He designed us to release God Himself in rivers of living water to flow across this planet.
Superman will never come; Superman does not exist.
God reveals Himself in weakness, in a babe lying in a manger, in a man hanging naked upon a cross, laying down His life for His friends.
This is God; know Him.
God will never show Himself in the way that Satan imagines himself to be. He will never appear as the Pharisees demand.
Yet He comes as the Daystar arising in our hearts. And He is as real in us as He was in Jesus.
Everything is turned inside out and upside down. All expectations are shattered and found empty.
The revelation, the unveiling of Jesus Christ, as He comes exactly as the Scriptures actually teach, will catch everyone by utter surprise.
Except those whose hearts He has molded and shaped, battered and formed; they will be overwhelmed, yes, but not surprised, for He appears as them.
Christ in you is the hope of glory, not Christ in the sky. When people see Him outwardly, they weep for shame, for they never honored the One who fills their hearts and their flesh with His glory.
That the life of Jesus also may be revealed - unveiled - in your mortal flesh.
All creation groans for its deliverance with all agony of soul. Out of the depths of His heart, God prepares His answer - many sons, just like Jesus, walking in glory and purity upon this earth, proving to all creation that God's word is true, that He fulfills the Covenant, that He does what He says.
And all creation is set free in the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
The unveiling of Jesus Christ is upon us. He is here; Jesus has walked this earth since the Day of Pentecost, June 5, AD 29. He has walked this earth hidden and unseen as those who belong to Him, filling their hearts with His Person.
Yet the time of His waiting is at an end. The cover is coming off. What glory will we know as we see Him as He really is - inside of us, filling our hearts with His glory?
We are just like Him, for we see Him as He is.
God reveals Himself to all creation through us.
Are you available for His purpose? Is being with Him as He reveals Himself once again upon this planet, in tenderness and meekness, in truth and purity, in kindness and joy, in power and great glory, the only thing you desire?
Can He reveal Himself through you?
When the cover is removed from you, what will there be inside - for all to see?
Jesus - our Savior and our Friend.
In this volume, you will find a vision of that reality - the unveiling of Jesus Christ.

The Great Story of God
The Great Story of God
God is Story. God's Story calls to the deepest recesses of our hearts. God says that we know Him only through the Story of a Man laying down His life for His friends.
There, in that act of Love at the heart of His Story, God shows Himself as He is - God ripped wide open for all to see.
In every story the hero leaves comfort behind and goes on a far journey. On that journey the hero gathers friends and companions; he battles enemies along the way and enjoys places of rest.
Finally the hero returns to fight for his people and his kingdom, to deliver them from the oppressor. His companions give their all out of the bond of love.
The hero faces the enemy at the point of the lie and defeats him. He restores the kingdom and brings joy and life to all.
God reveals His heart through the power and pathos of story. But story, to be real, must capture our own hearts. For, though this is God's story, it is also, very much, ours.
At the heart of our story and God's are these words, spoken by the Hero who lives in our hearts.
Greater love has no man than this,
that a man lay down His life for His friends.

-- It is time for the weak, the lowly, the incapable to shake the counsels of the mighty, to bring down kingdoms, and to overturn the ages.
The age of human folly is at an end. There is a knowing in the air that something must give, something must change, humanity on this earth cannot hold the present course. Certain ruin lies dead ahead.
Kingdoms of darkness are shattering and falling. Evil shows itself openly upon the earth because it's on its way out. The time of the accuser is finished.
Look to the cause. Another Kingdom is rising on this planet.
The wise do not know it; the capable cannot see it; the strong fall before it.
Look down. The Kingdom is beneath your feet.
The Kingdom comes, but it is coming where everyone least expects it.
No one looks for a weak Christ, a human Christ, a Christ of flesh. No one considers the crippled or the blind. No one looks to the autistic or the down syndrome. No one follows a little child without pretense or strength.
The Kingdom is rising upon this earth and none can stop it or slow it down. No one will see it until it changes everything because all mankind have their eyes in the wrong place.
This is intended. If Christians, if non-Christians, knew where the Kingdom really is, they would kill it before it is born. But they do not see it and they do not know it, and thus it arises from beneath them and swallows them up:
What do you want?
There comes into one's life, very infrequently, a key that opens the door to the future. This book is one of those keys.
I have often, through the years, lain on my bed awake in the middle of the night, tears streaming down my face, with a deep, deep desire for God - to know more of Him, for His perfect will in my life. Many times I have said to Him, "God, if You're doing anything in Your people that I am not part of, take me there; if it be possible, do it in me."
But I have known a lot of failure in my life. I am very weak. If this were up to me, I would have no hope.
Why, then, am I filled with indescribable joy?
It is the Jesus Secret. The Jesus Secret, the Mystery of Christ, has caused me to know the Lord Jesus Christ like never before.
If you want to know Him more than anything in the universe, it will reveal Him to you as well.
What do I want?
To be with Him. To stand by His side as He comes in His glory. To know that, in His triumph, He is counting on me; to hear Him say, "Well done, Friend, faithful and true."
All over the world, something phenomenal is happening in the lives of believers who want God more than anything. Hearts are being filled with glory; rivers of living water are flowing; darkness is shattering and falling.
What is happening? It is
Now, I would really like some of you, as you are willing, to write a "Customer Review" for the Amazon marketplace. It would be nice if you had a copy of the book, of course, but if you have read most of the series, you can still make comments by referring to the articles on the website.
My desire always is to see people connect more closely with the Lord Jesus inside of them then they have ever known before. If Jesus can use my little bit of writing to that end, I am more than rewarded.
May the Lord bless you and keep you through the time of your transformation,
