Why Are We Not Told Plainly?

Posted by Scott on April 7, 2008

My Utmost for His Highest

by Oswald Chambers

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

Click link below to study this verse: 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?
