Nothingness Supplanted by the Knowledge of God

Scientists have discovered that the universe is expanding. What does the universe supplant when it expands? It supplants nothing. This is nonsense to our minds – it is incomprehensible. Who can imagine nothingness supplanted by something else?

In the same manner our inner universe is ever expanding.  Nothingness is supplanted by an awareness of God who has taken complete possession of us. Fleshy thought patterns inherited from the fall – they are of course nothing – are supplanted by recognition of the indwelling God. We do not understand this either, but we can experience it as we increasingly settle in His rest. This is the mystery revealed: Christ in us. Flesh and blood hasn’t revealed this to us – every revelation comes from our Father in heaven. By virtue of that He indwells us heaven is in us. Our spirit is the conduit through which He speak those words almost too grand to utter and which made the religious scold and hate Jesus. In the same manner they will scold and hate us because of our testimony. However, nothingness will ultimately be supplanted by recognition of God as the One who is all in all. As the time draws close towards the consummation of time nothingness will be more and more visible – another paradox – when it is contrasted with the knowledge of God. At last everything which remains is God when the nothingness is done away with.

    Ole! Jessica and I were discussing this earlier today!!! I just love it when we hear the same thing at the same time…Now….Could nothingness be unbelief?Just a thought…. And not only are those words too grand to utter but there times when I cannot find words to describe what has Been spoken to me for my vocabulary does not support such words…..Those are the times when I sit and smile within myself for there is only joy to Be experienced after encountering more awareness of my nothingness being consumed by Love Himself…

    Amazing how the Spirit confirms us and the things He has shown us. Oh yes, there are things He shows us that defy our limited language. Fascinating and encouraging when that happens. He sort of expands our minds to grasp the incomprehensible. “Consumed by love Himself….” Wonderful!

    This is absolutely beautiful! I love how the universe is a manifestation of what is happening inside of us (me) right now. The nothingness is being swallowed up by the Eternal One! But not only is the nothingness swallowed up but the awareness is expanding. How cool! (and it is happening inside of me…not an impersonal thing but deeply personal). I love how you phrased this…”as we increasingly settle in His rest”. It reminds me of bedtime as a child, snuggling down in the covers, feeling safe and warm and secure…and it only gets better. Thank you dear Ole vessel!

    “It reminds me of bedtime as a child, snuggling down in the covers, feeling safe and warm and secure…and it only gets better.” That sentence gave me a good feeling and old good childhood memories found they way through the fog. “Deeply personal” is a perfect way of expressing it! Love is deeply personal! We are the object of his agape love (think I have written an article with a title similar to that…). Yiihaaa!!!!!!!
