The True Son Of Man

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

One like unto the Son of man . . . out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. Revelation 1:13, 16

The Christian message has ceased to be a pronouncement and has become instead a proposition. Scarcely anyone catches the imperious note in the words spoken by Jesus Christ. The invitational element of the Christian message has been pressed far out of proportion in the total scriptural scene. Christ with His lantern, His apologetic stance and His weak pleading face has taken the place of the true Son of Man whom John saw—His eyes as a flame of fire, His feet like burnished brass, and His voice as the sound of many waters. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal our Lord as He really is, and He does not paint in oils. He manifests Christ to the human spirit, not to our physical eyes. These are strenuous times, and men and women are being recruited to devote themselves to one or another master. But anything short of complete devotion to Christ is inadequate and must end in futility and loss.

Messiah And His Duplicates

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When I give a message or teaching, I record it. The original recording is called the master. The master is put into a duplicating machine filled with blanks which become duplicates of the master. The blanks are imprinted with the information from the master and become copies of the master.

Messiah is called the Master. If you call Him your Master, it means you have to become His duplicate. I Peter 2:21 says Messiah left us an example to follow. The Greek word for example is huppogrammos which means the writing that was placed under the paper for the scribes to trace. It was the ancient version of masters and duplicates. So if you call Him Master, become His duplicate. Get plugged into Him, receive the imprint of His love, His wisdom, His righteousness, His purity, His heart, and His power. Follow His example by walking in His Spirit. Let Him live His life through you, and you will become like Him, an accurate duplicate. Your life will be His life and His life, your life. For if you call Him Master, you must become His duplicate.

Today’s Mission

Today, before acting or reacting, think of what the Lord would do or say and then do likewise.
