Divine Order - In Christ

by T. Austin-Sparks

Based on messages given at an Easter conference in 1959. The first five chapters were first published as a series of messages in "A Witness and A Testimony" magazines in 1968-1969, volumes 46-3 through 47-1. In 2009 the text of the remaining messages from the same conference were added. To see a verbatim transcript go to Divine Order in Christ (Transcript).

Everything that the Bible has to say to us is related to an eternal order that God intended to obtain in this universe. His key to that order, without which nothing of all His glorious purpose is possible, is Christ. The Person of Christ is the very embodiment of all the principles of a universal order. If we could comprehend, discern, understand and know Christ, we should see that in that one universal Person are gathered up all the laws of a great heavenly order. His redemptive work, the whole of the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus has this one thing in mind: the recovery of a lost order. He stands in His Person, in His creative work, and in His redemptive work, related to this whole matter of an eternal, heavenly order.
