Christ magnified

Another excerpt from the Hubert Lindsey biography..."The Walking Bible"

Having known Hubert Lindsey and recognizing his love and compassion for people, this writer finds it very easy to magnify Christ through that Brother. When Hubert picked up that little deformed baby whose head was as long as the body he trusted Christ to heal. Christ opened that baby’s eyes for the first time. Hubert wept with tears of joy as he magnified the Living Christ. That child was healed by Christ and lived a normal life. Hubert testified this healing was one of the greatest miracles ever wrought under his ministry. Brother Lindsey knew that Christ performs greater works today than in the days of His earthly ministry.

· John 14:12… He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

When Hubert spoke he took people to Christ where forgiveness of sins and holiness of heart could be found in a glimpse of Calvary. Hubert believed that each man’s salvation and forgiveness was found on a personal basis. Hubert felt that because of salvation by Divine Grace Christians should never have unforgiveness in their hearts. Christians forgive others because Christ forgave them. When Hubert forgave men who beat him, they could sense his compassion. As a result men gave their hearts to Christ. Hubert Lindsey magnified Christ through compassion. He magnified Christ by his love for men even those who hurt him physically.

Being rejected couldn't stop Hubert from magnifying the name of Christ. Religious opposition didn’t stop Hubert from magnifying Christ. Doctrinal differences didn’t stop Hubert from magnifying Christ. People’s ignorance of the Bible didn’t hinder Hubert either. Hubert magnified Christ because he knew that all power and authority in Heaven and Earth was in the person of Christ! Hubert Lindsey knew that devils and demonic spirits were in subjection to Christ! Hubert’s Gospel magnified Christ at Calvary and in the Throneroom today. Hubert magnified Christ for sending the Holy Spirit to save and to sanctify. Hubert knew the new birth and sanctification through the Spirit became real to the heart of man when Christ was magnified! Magnification of Christ takes people beyond human intellect and makes the person of Christ real and tangible!

Mary the mother of Jesus is a beautiful example of one who magnified the supremacy Christ.

· Luke 1:46-47…And Mary said, my soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
