I remember hearing this teaching bore but its been a long time since then...
March 20, 2017
So I really appreciated Stones different way of explaining these truths.
I read this book very critically. I made some margin notes to clarify or correct what Stone wrote, but usually found that he had clarified it himself a little later.
I started to think that Stone is repeating himself a lot. He emphasizes that we need the revelation of the Holy Spirit to understand what he is writing. This is a little frustrating because, unfortunately, the Holy Spirit is not a switch that we can flip to make Him turn on the revelation that Stone is writing about. So unless/until we have/get this revelation, we are struggling. I feel I have some of the revelation Stone is referring to . I have caught the vision but have not really entered into it. I can see it hazily before me, but cant fully grasp it. But for those of us who dont get it right away the repetition, talking about it from different angles, is helpful.
To some this will sound too mystical and to those who love the discernment personalities out there on the radio, those who have the gift of criticism this will probably look like one of the books they would condemn because of its emphasis on needing special and personal revelation to comprehend. Some might say its like Gnosticisms secret knowledge. But Paul and Jesus himself said the the Gospel was Gods secret (Mark 4:11; par. Matt. 13:11, Luke 8:10; Rom 16:25-27; 1 Cor 2:1-10; 4:1; Eph 1:8b-10; 3:1-10; Col 1:25-27; 2:2-3).
As Jesus told Peter, that his statement about Jesus being the Messiah, this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. thats Supernatural revelation! Every one of us who has been born again IS born again because we accepted the supernatural revelation about Jesus offered to us by the Holy Spirit. Its true that the devil seeks to attract people to him through his own version of supernatural secrets, but we must not demonize our brothers and sisters who speak more openly and in terminology that we might not use, of our need for God to reveal His truth to us. We need to be careful that we dont throw out the baby with the bathwater.
Many Evangelicals, in their reaction against some of the excesses of the Charismatics and Pentecostals, make the error of the other side of the ditch, when they seek to approach God only through head knowledge.
I think we fear the danger of losing control. Jesus said we need to lose our lives so we can gain it. To some extent I think that means NOT letting our heads have 100% control. WE MUST still filter every impulse and understanding through the written Word. Subjective impulses and understandings must pass the objective test of the Word per the examples of the Bereans (Acts 17).
I loved so much of this book. Especially chapters The Single Eye and The Holy But.
It's the Gospel in a nutshell!! It's awesome!! I bought 6 extra copies to give to my friends. The friend who shared it with me had also bought 5 extra copies to give to friends!! The Gospel is meant to be simple and he explains it SO simply! You will find freedom in these pages!! It's definitely a book to reread periodically!!
This is the best book written to date on what the Christ Life is. I knew Dan personally and have listened to his tapes over and over because they give clues to how to find Christ as your life. The biggest disappointment I have is that Christian Books doesn't list his book (as far as I could tell in searching the contents of their recent magazine).
They have not given it an editorial review as with hundreds of other books!!!
This is a shame as it is such an outstanding book on the Life Jesus gave us through his resurrection.
Other authors write on "The Blood" and what that does for us (very important) but they miss out on what Christians need after the forgiveness of their sins. LIFE!!!!!
I have known for quite a number of years who Christ was in me and Who I am in Christ, because of the persons who open up truth to me many years ago, but many, many "Christians I've know and taught don't." From their discoveries and the examination of the contents of this book "lives have been changed, revived, and reborn." To date our little group of about 18 people have shared over 350 copies of this book with our friends, family and those struggling with the truth of "Christ in you the hope of Glory!" Dan has been dead for many years now but the Lord Jesus continues to open up "lives from the truths that Dan discovered and shared during his life and now in his death and beyond." If you're looking for a book to read or study that relates directly to scripture -- this is the book! The is NOT A SELF HELP BOOK IN ANY SENSE OF THE WORD -- this is the truth as it is found in Christ and He will by His Spirit lead the reader into the discovery of the truths of Col. 1:27 and beyond. If you are failing over and over again asside from Bible itself -- this book and it contents will open up "Christ and His truth to you if your are a 'unbelieving believer' or enrich beyond expectations if you are a 'believer' and if you are an 'unbeliever' and truly seeking truth to your life -- the one step you will need to discover "life" is contained within the pages of this book no matter where you start: beginning, in the middle or from the back and read to the front -- the truth is there! See the Christian life is one of DISCOVERY and not a discovery you can make on your own with REVELATION! But, if you're seriously searching -- YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! "I guarantee it!" (smile)
