Life on the Highest Plane: Life on the Highest Plane
Every Christian has inherited untold riches. As a child of the King and a joint heir with Christ he is a spiritual multi-millionaire. But comparatively few Christians bear the marks of spiritual affluence. Their conversation, character and conduct give the impression of spiritual impoverishment. Throughout the Church of Christ there is a universal complaint of dearth and deadness.
Many Christians do not seem to be conscious of their lack or their need. They are indifferent and self-satisfied. But, on the other hand, there are many whose lives are characterised by a humiliating consciousness of defeat and failure, by a growing unrest, and by a perpetual striving for something never attained. Their hearts cry out insistently, “Lord, is there nothing better than this for me in the Christian life?”
The purpose of these studies is to teach what are the Christian’s possessions in Christ and how they may be appropriated, enjoyed and used.
These Bible studies were first given in embryo to pastors, evangelists, teachers and other Christian leaders in conferences held in China. Later They grew into full-size as they were taught in weekly Bible classes stretching over a period of six months. In response to many requests from both Chinese and missionary friends that this message might be made available for their use, it has been prepared for publication.
God is building a spiritual house for His own glory and use. This house is composed of a foundation, a superstructure and furnishings. These studies attempt to furnish the plan of such a habitation and to show step by step the process of its building. Each chapter is, as it were, a story complete in itself yet connected both with the story underneath it and the one above it. The work is divided into three parts as here indicated:
Part 1—Christ Jesus: The Foundation—Eternal, Incarnate, Crucified, Risen, Ascended, Exalted
Part 2—The Believer in Christ and Christ in the Believer: The Superstructure
Part 3—The Holy Spirit: The Furnishings—Indwelling, Infilling, Cleansing, Controlling, Guiding, Anointing
It is the hope of the author that these studies may be used by groups. For such the bibliography will suggest additional material.
This book is now given back to God with the prayer that He will use it to lift many to Life on the Highest Plane.

The Lord is coming for His church before the seven years of Tribulation on earth. So many believers do not know about the Judgment Seat of Christ.....and they are sleeping, believing that eternal life ... Read full review
