  1. Today’s message was a powerful one! I pray that many will hear it and know it for themselves. When we apply, just as you mentioned that John 17:26 were words that literally opened your eyes to see the power of Christ in us, I have to say I was surprised that you didn’t already know what that verse really meant. Glad it does now and another one that I often repeat when feeling frustrated is ‘greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world’. As Jesus said ‘you will do greater than things that I’, and I will leave you my Comforter! So, knowing that Jesus is always with us no matter how we think or feel, we must trust Him and His Word. Great message and pray that so many will ask God to reveal Himself to each one who asks in faith.

  2. Dr Grant..I’m very happy for you..I see the Holy Spirit has given you rhema revelation of John 17:26..praise God..it’s one thing to read the written Word of God..(logos)..its another thing to get revelation knowledge in your spirit man and understand what it means..(rhema)..sounds like the eyes of your heart has been enlightened with the revelation knowledge of the power of the One who dwells within every part of you..Ephesians 1:17,18..I came to know the One who dwells within me in a most personal way when all human hope was gone and doctors didn’t know what else to do .As a dying moslem, I accepted Jesus Christ into my life and He became very real to me, literally..Every part of me, spirit, soul and body came alive with His life and power at that time because I was terminally ill. So, I saw firsthand the power of the Living God IN me..I’ll go one step further..Not only is He in us, but we are in Him..In Him we live and move and breathe and have our being..so He’s in us and we’re in Him..therefore we are knitted together as One with Him..AIK, I pray along with you that many will get a fresh revelation of the One who dwells within them, that is none other than the Person Of Jesus Christ..Blessings to all..

  3. Many thanks, Dr. Mullen, A very compelling and comforting word. i have needed this word, especially as it applies to intercession, but also in walking through life every day. We are “hidden with Christ in God” (Col. 3:3).

  4. Thank you Dr.Mullen for the timely reminder that God is always with us. I have struggled with that & praise God that He is not through with me yet.

  5. Dr. Grant,
    thanks for your message, I pray every day to have the mind of Christ, I know He is alive in me yet I’ve been battling with depression for 15 years, the last 10 years, difficult jobs, loneliness, rejection from my sisters who are not Christian, financial struggles, no restaurants, no movies, no vacation other than around the block, noisy apartment. But I will continue to praise Almighty God and claim His promises.
    Please pray for me, I have a very stressful job (which doesn’t help for depression), that God will give me the desires of my heart. God Bless you and your ministry.

  6. Jesus is in us and we are in Him. That means when Jesus hangs out with Our Father and the Holy Spirit we are invited! We are fellow shipping with the Holy triune God and He wants it like that! Blew my mind when he showed me. Thanks for the reminder today, very timely.

  7. Grant,
    Don’t feel bad, I had been immersed in “good, fundamental, bible believing” churches all my life, ie, 55 years, without understanding this! It took someone who spoke the Word, our Father opened my eyes, and I instantly got it, ie, Christ in me, His life-my life, His righteousness..my righteousness, His death…my death, His power…my empowering, His love… mine to bless others…and on and on. So simple, no praying for, pleading for, hoping for, agonizing for, pounding the religious treadmill for…. Needless to say, I have been radically changed!!!|

    Keep spreading the “Word”

    It’s amazing that a truth that is so fundamental can be so elusive. Obviously, Satan doesn’t want any of us to truly grasp it since it will change our lives from an intellectual and powerless walk with God to a vital, living, world changing walk. Spread the word!

  9. That is a very pertinent message. Ever since I can remember I’ve had a strong desire to know and please Jesus and the Father. Even though I received Jesus into my heart and was baptized in the Holy Spirit, I couldn’t seem to live the Christian life the way other Christians told me to. I often felt overwhelmed, discouraged and even condemned when I heard pastors preach about the importance of faith, that faith comes by hearing, speaking and believing the Word of God, the fact that God responds according to our level of faith, and that without faith it is impossible to please God. When I accepted defeat and cried out to God for help, He began to teach me about faith in very simple terms. God showed me that faith is developed by simply learning to need Him and trust Him like a little child towards a parent. As little children we needed help bathing, dressing ourselves, feeding ourselves. We needed someone to tell us the time, carry us when we were tired, comfort us when we were hurt, answer our questions, reassure us, love us. When I come before God, I think of myself as a very small child coming before my Father (Parent), needy with nothing to give but myself. I see God as very big and powerful, always present, full of mercy, forgiveness, grace and love (in Jesus). When I received Jesus into my heart, my spirit became alive and I received the gift of the Holy Spirit in my spirit. As I regularly pray in the Spirit and worship I am experiencing that restored /reconnected relationship to my Father (a sense of oneness) that Jesus purchased for me on the cross. (John 14:20,”I am in My Father, and you in Me and I in you”.)

    Because I sometimes feel overwhelmed when learning biblical truths from pastors and teachers, God tends to teach me truths from the Scriptures and about my relationship with Him in very simple terms. I believe we each learn slightly different aspects of the nature of God and our relationship to Him depending on our temperament, our gifts and abilities, our backgrounds and experiences. We need Christians who are bold and vocal about their faith, and we also need Christians who have more of a childlike faith. I’ve encountered many Christians who are very knowledge-based in their relationship to Jesus and the Father who seem to find simplicity offensive or inadequate. They strive to create something grand to display to the world and each other. It’s better to have simplicity than a counterfeit.
