Jesus Meets Us Inside Our Delusion
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

S.01 EPISODE 15

Baxter talks about the “growing despair of good people,” a church that’s been raised on separation awakening to our union, Christ in us, the hope of glory.

“Jesus has pitched His tent in our flesh… If I didn’t believe that Jesus, Father and Holy Spirit is inside every person on the whole earth, I would not open my mouth… But we are bearing witness to something that is real.”

Jesus has stepped into our delusions, into our darkness, and the discovery of Christ in us that is the hope of glory, life, wholeness, and freedom.

In part one Baxter talks on Christ as our Creator and also shares about the willingness to approach pain so we might know God more intimately.

S.01 EPISODE 16

In part 2 Baxter continues to reveal how there is no separation in the Triune God and there is no separation between us.

“The good Shepherd is good and He doesn’t do abonnement because His Father doesn’t do abandonment and neither does Holy Spirit.”

Jesus has stepped into our darkness or delusion to reveal Himself. And Baxter unpacks several scriptures in John around our inclusion. Jesus prayed that we would know our union just as He knew and revealed.

Baxter also breaks down two thoughts expressed by George MacDonald’s writings

“Good souls many will one day be horrified at the things they think of God.” “God is not bound to punish sin, God is bound to destroy it.”

And of course we discuss tacos.

“It can be true of us but not true to us.” Epignosis- a deeper, more personal, and experiential knowledge, the grace of apostolic ministry, the importance of connection and community, objective and subjective truth, encountering God’s love and affection, the role of works in grace, moving from church mentality to Kingdom thinking, experiencing the truth goodness of God, living in freedom, the invitation to union and clearing the lens, the nature of hell and darkness, the relational dynamic with God, being light and working out salvation, living in the ease of His life, and the partnership between faith and action, in this conversation, Bishop Jamie Englehart and Jason dive into union and the journey experiencing our theology.

ETERNAL LIFE WITH JASON CLARK

This podcast features Chapter Three of Jason Clark’s recent book, Leaving and Finding Jesus.

“We have been invited to trade a finite perspective with an infinite eternal life revelation—Christ in us, the hope of glory—and nothing separates us from His love! In John 17, Jesus prayed that we would know this union, this oneness, just as He and the Father were one. Further, He revealed there is no darkness light won’t penetrate, no brokenness that won’t be made whole, no road He won’t join us on, no soil the Seed won’t transform, no consequence of sin that His justice won’t restore—past, present, or future…”
