You awoke Today, didn’t you?

And because of that fantastic fact, you’re experiencing this ordinary yet profoundly extraordinary phenomena that we call ‘Today’.

You’ve been engulfed and raptured into this reality — one with it in every way: You in it, and it in you. You live, move, breathe and have your being in Today. And since you awoke, you’re aware and conscious of it.

It would be impossible for me to convince you otherwise — that Today hasn’t come. You don’t question it; you’re certain because your senses caused you to recognize it. Day consciousness — fascinating to comprehend!

Interestingly, you didn’t have a say in the matter. Today didn’t ask for your permission, but you believed it would appear, then it came as a gift to you. As soon as you heard the alarm clock, you awoke. Then you opened your eyes, beholding the glorious sunrise — immediately recognizing, a new day has dawned.

We both comprehend this reality; hence, we can relate to it. You exclaim: ‘Isn’t it a beautiful Day’? I respond: ‘Yes, it is. What’re your plans Today?’ You could make a financial investment — accumulating wealth. Maybe meet someone, and fall in love. You can taste and see new things and enjoy the pleasures of Today. Endless possibilities exist within this fantastic phenomenon ‘Today’ that came to us.

Furthermore, you can’t escape the presence of this great and terrific Day that’s appeared. It’s impossible to live outside it now since you’re enveloped by it. You can’t live in tomorrow, for it hasn’t come, and the consciousness of that Day cannot be apprehended. Accepting that fact, you go about your business.

As you read this line, you’re experiencing it. “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,” you awoke from sleep, entering the consciousness of Today. Marvellously, you seamlessly passed from the state of sleep into the state of being awake. Aren’t you grateful you awoke and opened your eyes?

Now let’s say that you didn’t awake this morning. What would that mean? Well, you wouldn’t have seen that bright sunrise, you couldn’t taste and see the pleasures, nor avail of the possibilities — Today offered. As someone in a coma, you’d be unconscious of it. Even though Today certainly came, and the brightness of the sunrise appeared, you couldn’t behold it while being asleep, could you? In that state, your eyes are closed — unaware, and dead to the presence of Today.

“Awake thou that sleepest arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” (Eph 5.14)

Do you know that a New Day that is more real and more glorious has Come also?

Do you know that the Bright and Morning Star — Jesus Christ has Appeared on this Day?

Do you know that Heaven and earth are full of His presence, and “In Him, you live, move and have your being”.?

“Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” (Genesis 28.6)

While asleep, you’re unconscious; therefore, you cannot experience the New Day. Even though spectacular events are taking place, like the dead being raised — you cannot behold it in the state of sleep.

“The Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout… And the dead in Christ will rise first.” (1 Thess 4.16)

Even worse, while you sleep, you have nightmares in which God looks more like the film horror character Freddy Krueger, out to kill and destroy you! And of course, you fear that Freddy/God will eventually burn you in hell for eternity! While asleep, you cannot see The brightness of His coming, nor: “Taste and See that God is GOOD.” You are as the Bible says: “Alienated from God and enemies in your mind.” See, It’s all taking place in the dark tomb of your mind — that lying dream-like state. As in, you’re not, in reality, an enemy, for He loves you.

“God SO LOVED the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3.16)

“Behold, what manner of love the Father HAS BESTOWED UPON US.” (1 John 3.1)

Would you like to Taste and See God’s goodness, and experience His love and compassion?

“Awake thou that sleepest.”

When you hear the shout of Jesus from Heaven, you like sleeping Lazarus will immediately exit the tomb of your darkened mind, and “come forth” into everlasting life. Just as you awoke this morning, passing seamlessly from the unconscious state of sleep into the conscious presence of Today, you too will hear the shout: Arise. Immediately, you will open your eyes — finding yourself enraptured in the New Day of Christ.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has PASSED FROM DEATH TO LIFE.

“All who are in the graves will HEAR HIS VOICE AND COME FORTH” (John 5.24)

When you pass from death into life and experience what Jesus speaks of, you awaken: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,” just as you awoke Today. However, the change in consciousness is immediate (like waking) and requires no effort; hence, why all religious activity void of Spirit is utterly futile.

“Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God.” (1 Cor 15.34)

Unless you possess true knowledge (Awoken union with God), you cannot stop sinning, so stop trying - because no amount of religious effort or penance will make any difference to someone asleep. 

“Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may AWAKE HIM OUT OF SLEEP. I am the resurrection and the life…Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11.11)

Believest thou this? That, You are a friend of Jesus, and he’s about to wake you?

“On that day, you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” (John 14.20)

Notice: ‘On that Day’. It must and can only be on this Day that you awake to oneness with God. Just as you absorbed into the conscious presence of Today, becoming one with it in every way; In this New Day that Jesus speaks, you likewise — effortlessly absorb into God’s presence.

‘On that Day, you will know.’ Divine union realized: ‘You in me and I in you.’

As the sunrise signifies the dawn of a new day, so too; when you enter the New Day of Christ, you immediately see the appearing of the Bright Morning Star — Jesus Christ, as John the Baptist did.

“The NEXT DAY, John saw Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Would you like to awake to this glorious New Day, and see the brightness of His appearing?

Would you like to behold the lamb that takes all your sin and guilt away?

“Awake thou that sleepest arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.”
