“The mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations; but now has been manifested to His saints” (Col.1:26).  This mystery, of Christ in us, our hope of glory”, is available to all believers.  Men no longer need to die in a wilderness of separation, struggle and defeat.  There is “a Sabbath rest for the people of God” (Heb. 4:9).




Walter Lanyon wrote primarily to mature Christians who have begun to see with a “single eye”, he leaves “the elementary teachings about the Christ…….not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and faith toward God” (Heb.6:1).  Instead of seeing some as little children and young men, he writes as if all readers are “fathers” (1John 2:13)


Also remember that Walter Lanyon’s writings make only passing reference to sin, to the Lord Jesus’ unique Deity in His incarnation as “God manifest in the flesh”, to our identification with Him in His substitutionary death, and to other such fundamental truths.  His limited emphasis on the foundations of faith in Christ is his way of pressing readers on to further reaches of maturity, not a denial of any foundational truths.


In these articles you will find a rich spiritual feast. As with all spiritual truth you may have to meditate on some of the truths revealed. If some things do not feel right to you just skip over them or perhaps put them on a shelf to look at some other time.
