THE DISPENSING OF THE DIVINE TRINITY RESULTING IN OUR BECOMING THE EXPRESSION OF GOD
It is in this way that God dispenses Himself into us. Brothers and sisters, it does not matter whether you are old or young, or whether you are a first-time hearer of my speaking. You should know that God has been dispensed into you. You have another Person in you; you are no longer by yourself. Never forget this: Now God is in you and He wants to increase in you and renew you day by day. Second Corinthians 4:16b says, “Though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.” God is carrying out His renewing work in us daily. We are being renewed day by day. In other words, God is increasing in us daily. Although this time you have come to attend this conference for only two days, I hope that you will gain God unlimitedly so that when you return to your home what you will show people is not what messages you have heard but a definite growth of Christ in you and an increase of God in you.
In this conference we have a new hymn with four stanzas (using the tune of Hymns, #499), expressing God’s highest purpose concerning man. I hope that every one of you will sing this new hymn until it gets into your being.
- What miracle! What mystery!
That God and man should blended be!
God became man to make man God,
From His good pleasure, heart’s desire,
His highest goal attained will be.
- Flesh He became, the first God-man,
His pleasure that I God may be:
In life and nature I’m God’s kind,
Though Godhead’s His exclusively.
His attributes my virtues are;
His glorious image shines through me.
- No longer I alone that live,
But God together lives with me.
Built with the saints in the Triune God,
His universal house we’ll be,
And His organic Body we
For His expression corp’rately.
- Jerusalem, the ultimate,
Of visions the totality;
The Triune God, tripartite man—
A loving pair eternally—
As man yet God they coinhere,
A mutual dwelling place to be;
God’s glory in humanity
Shines forth in splendor radiantly!
Hallelujah, this is God’s highest purpose concerning man!
