My Utmost For His Highest : "Why Are We Not Told Plainly?"


April 7, 2012


He charged them that they should tell no man what things
they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the

Mark 9:9

Say nothing until the Son of man is risen in you - until the life of
the risen Christ so dominates you that you understand what the
historic Christ taught. When you get to the right state on the
inside, the word which Jesus has spoken is so plain that you are
amazed you did not see it before. You could not understand it before,
you were not in the place in disposition where it could be borne.

Our Lord does not hide these things; they are unbearable until we get
into a fit condition of spiritual life. "I have yet many things to
say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now." There must be communion
with His risen life before a particular word can be borne by us. Do
we know anything about the impartation of the risen life of Jesus?
The evidence that we do is that His word is becoming interpretable to
us. God cannot reveal anything to us if we have not His Spirit. An
obstinate outlook will effectually hinder God from revealing anything
to us. If we have made up our minds about a doctrine, the light of
God will come no more to us on that line, we cannot get it. This
obtuse stage will end immediately [when] His resurrection life has
its way with us.

"Tell no man . . " - so many do tell what they saw on the mount of
transfiguration. They have had the vision and they testify to it, but
the life does not tally with it, the Son of man is not yet risen in
them. I wonder when He is going to be formed in you and in me?
