Psalms 51:6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward being; make me to know wisdom in the inmost part.1 [To receive wisdom, you must turn inward, to wait on God in humble silence, listening, watching, hearing, and then obeying. You hear Him speak His word from within your heart; that is the word that the Apostles preached. From the Word of the Lord within: "Turn inward to discover the mysteries." Because what may be known of God is revealed in them; Rom 1:19. To know wisdom in the inmost part is not head knowledge; it is understandings and teachings received by revelation from God, which if heeded the words are engrafted and written in your heart, strengtening the inner man, which is the life of God, Christ within you; for the words that He speaks to you are Spirit and life-giving, John 6:63 . Since Christ is the truth and the wisdom of God, both are written in your heart.]

John 1:4,9

 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.2 [The word, who is Jesus, is the life of God and the light of men. Christ is the light of men: the true light that enlightens every man who comes into the world, given to them so that they might believe. John 1:7,9. The life of God in measure to control men was lost for all men when Adam disobeyed God and fell. When you have crucified your sinful, selfish life and are afterward restored to the righteousness and holiness of God's image, Christ, then you live in Christ, and Christ lives in you, controlling all your words and deeds; and this life is then eternal. Eternal life is to be a new creature in Christ on earth and forever.]

 9 Which was the true Light that enlightens every man who comes into the world.5 [All men have a small measure of the light (Christ) given to them so that they might believe the light's anonymous convictions of their evil ways to be true and eventually be saved; for God would have all men to be saved, and so He gives all men equal opportunity to be saved with sufficient light to guide them. If we persistently heed the light and word in our hearts that reproves us, then we receive more of His spirit, eventually being freed from all sin and seeing Jesus bring us our salvation and eternal life. With a hunger for righteousness we seek God by exposing ourselves to his further commands and teachings by waiting on him in humble silence as we listen and watch.]

Colossians 1:27

 27 To whom God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery in the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory;5 [There are five stages of Christ being formed within you; see The Mystery, Christ in You for the detailed understanding. In his sermon early Quaker Stephen Crisp, who dwelled in the kingdom, testified that in one day under the government of Christ, (in the kingdom), one has more joy, pleasure, and delight than a thousand days outside it.]

 5 Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; prove yourselves. Do you not know yourself, that Jesus Christ is in you — unless you are reprobates [tested, rejected]?2
