Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Men telling men that they are right with God is the foundation stone of all Christianity and is the stumbling-block which souls who are looking for God must overcome to obtain peace with God. But the truly hungry soul will accomplish that search for God because it is satisfied by nothing but God’s confirmation, not man’s, that he has been forgiven. In the appointed time, the person who hungers and thirsts for God’s righteousness will understand, by his own experience, the meaning of John’s words, “the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1Jn. 5:6).
Do not be satisfied with a minister telling you that you are right with God. Wait for God to give you His witness: the baptism of the holy ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. That is the Spirit’s voice, crying out through you, “Abba, Father”.
