You know, in the winter, if your automobile is out in the cold for a while, it is quite hard to start it, isn’t it? You may step on the gas, and continue to step on the starter and yet at times it will not start readily. But if you have a car that has run all heated up and the coil is in good order, and all of the spark plugs firing and the spark is set right, all you must needs do is to get the gasoline and step on the starter and it will immediately start.
So it is with the spirit and the quickening power in your hearts. The reason you do not start is because you are cold. Every cylinder in the automobile should explode. Every cylinder should fire. If it is hitting on every cylinder it will run smoothly, will it not? But if it is only hitting on one or two, if it is a six or an eight cylinder car, it will not run smoothly. At times it is hard to get it to start unless it is hitting on each cylinder.
So it is with the Spirit of MY Presence within you. The Spirit should be contacting each cell in your bodily form. By the Spirit of GOD’S Presence you should be charged with this magnetic current of love. Your hearts and your minds should be in readiness to perform their duty for the mission for which you are called, and as soon as you step on the starter it should fire. But if you don’t get any fire, you cannot start your car. That is quite simple, but yet it is essential.
Through that main wire the fire must come. It matters not how good your motor may be, unless you have some fire you cannot start your car. The wire of salvation must have its rightful connection, and you must be rightfully connected to it, that you might contact the fire, or that the fire might contact you to start every cell in your bodily form functioning. When this shall have been accomplished, it will be no longer you, but it will be the Christ that dwells in you…
By this great explosive power that is in the word that is spoken, whether it be a word of praises or a word of thanks, you will respond spontaneously, unthoughtfully, and your whole being will move, for it is the Christ quickening your whole physical bodily form, and that is exactly according to the Scripture….
