Day 29 meditation will take you into the realness of the nearness of Christ’s coming into your life in today’s world.
A human being is a creature of two different worlds. He is a flesh and blood body that has been quickened by the breath of life, the Spirit of God (Gen. 2:7). Since the body is inanimate material, it has to be infused with life by a force outside of itself. The spiritual has to penetrate the physical before life can be experienced by that which has no life.
Day 29 meditation reveals the mystery of the dying of the earthly domain.
From the planting of a seed to the coming forth of the kingdom of God among men, the miracle of this new life is consistent in its mystery. The outward husk of the seed must be destroyed before the essence of new life within can come forth in its glory producing new life (John 12:24). The kingdoms of men, as in the interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Dan. 2:24-44), must be broken into pieces before the means of their annihilation (the coming of Christ) spreads forth in a great nation of God filling the whole earth. The coming forth of the miracle of life within the created world always comes forth in the labor pains of physical death — the dying of the earthly domain.
Day 29 meditation proclaims the mystery of the “Day of the Lord.”
This moment of time, when the essence of the Spirit breaks forth out of the flesh, came to be known in the prophecies of the Old Testament and the teachings of the New Testament as the Day of the Lord. It was a special time; a special day when God’s will and purpose in the created world would be fulfilled. It is how God keeps refreshing his presence in the created world.
Day 29 meditation announces the reality of the coming of Christ to refresh his presence in your life.
You, too, should live in the expectancy that in every Day of the Lord, in every crisis that life brings your way, Jesus will come to bring restoration. As the old is being brought to its end, the new will be ushered in by the coming of Christ. It is a special manifestation of his nearness as his presence is revealed. Jesus will come again and again with his power of deliverance to save you from the present pressure of life.
