THE MEASURE OF MAN
In order for us to experience the qualities of God, he has to get us to go beyond the measure of man, because God is so much more than man.
Paul explains that there were times he was pressed out of measure—the measure of man, and above strength—the strength of man.
When pressed out of the measure of man we begin to explore the measureless measure of God, and to know his strength which is ordained out of our mouths as out of the mouths of babies and sucklings.
The word of God spoken out of your mouth will call for your death so you can experience that word coming alive in place of the life you knew. It will be no longer you, but Christ living in you. Henceforth we will know no person anymore after the manner of men that are born of women, but after the manner of men born of God.
Whether we eat, drink, play, or work, it will be an exercise by which we affirm the new consciousness of the new being that is in us as the Lord from heaven, and not us anymore. We walk as him, work as him, sleep as him, talk as him, sing as him, we live as him, and no more us. As he is so are we, and so do we.
The true measure of man is whatever the new man that is in Christ is, and that is not the man that was born of woman, but that which was born of God. In Christ the measure of man is now eye to eye, nose to nose, mouth to mouth, hand to hand, and foot to foot the image of God—the perfect man.
