May 9th, 1962 “God’s Revelation” Mr. N. Daniel
Hebrews 5:12 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”
Salvation depends on revelation. When your own nature is revealed, you repent. The more you dig into your nature the more you find out that your nature is undependable. It is dangerous to your life and to those that depend on you. When God’s revelation comes to you, you not only know the wretchedness of your condition but also the purpose of God in creating you. If you really progress in the correct direction, you will call God “Father”. You will hallow His name, you will wish for His kingdom to come and that His will may be done. Angels haste to do God’s will. You will wish His will to be done on earth. Then, there is a drive in you that makes you run counter to God’s will. That is the deceitfulness of your heart. Man chose to run after sin and his heart became deceitful. That evil is in our blood. “In sin did my mother conceive me” means she had a body of sin, with sinful emotions. “Create in me a clean heart” is the prayer of a Christian.
When by faith you obey the first
principles of the gospel you feel the joy of salvation. But your old nature
tries to win you back into the life of sin. People who never had a revelation
from God mock at Christian life. The beginning of salvation is by revelation.

Some of us who should be teachers are needing to be taught, still drinking milk. You ask people to give you a message or to come to your house and pray. That is all very good. But why don’t you go to others and give them a message? When I was a student, God used to give me a message every day and I used to give others that message when I was prompted to do so. One day God gave me a message and on my way back from prayer I saw a group of carpenters. I sat with them and gave them the gospel. Have you got a message for others? Are you still drinking milk? If you are able to eat meat, you will have strength to feed others. When you are eating meat you are always ready to give a message to others. Many young people were saved when I gave my witness to them as a student, because I gave it will all my heart and with a clean heart . I once had to work in a Christian institution. There they did not believe in Christian victory. Can’t we have victory over the love of money? Can’t we have victory over the lust of the flesh? Can’t we have victory over selfishness? It is possible , ARE YOU EATING MEAT?
