"And in that day ye shall ask Me nothing." John 16:23When is "that day"? When the Ascended Lord makes you one with the Father. In that day you will be one with the Father as Jesus is, and "in that day," Jesus says, "ye shall ask Me nothing." Until the resurrection life of Jesus is manifested in you, you want to ask this and that; then after a while you find all questions gone, you do not seem to have any left to ask. You have come to the place of entire reliance on the resurrection life of Jesus which brings you into perfect contact with the purpose of God. Are you living that life now? If not, why shouldn't you?There may be any number of things dark to your understanding, but they do not come in between your heart and God. "And in that day ye shall ask Me no question" - you do not need to, you are so certain that God will bring things out in accordance with His will. John 14:1 has become the real state of your heart, and there are no more questions to be asked. If anything is a mystery to you and it is coming in between you and God, never look for the explanation in your intellect, look for it in your disposition, it is that which is wrong. When once your disposition is willing to submit to the life of Jesus, the understanding will be perfectly clear, and you will get to the place where there is no distance between the Father and His child because the Lord has made you one, and "in that day ye shall ask Me no question."

"If anything is a mystery to you and it is coming in between you and God, never look for the explanation in your intellect, look for it in your disposition, it is that which is wrong."Proverbs 3:5,6Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.Yesterday, "by chance" I listened to Art Katz sermon's on John 16:23. I wondered if what he was saying was true. Today the Lord gives me my answer. I'm amazed at how God answers questions. May we all come into this place where we shall ask Him nothing.Attaining to Sonship by Art Katzhttps://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=10819&commentView=itemComments
I don't know that I ever want to be in a place that I shall not ask something, here's why: Revelation 7:17 (King James Version)For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.Leading me to fountains of living water denotes something that has not yet been revealed...Is it possible to be overflowing full and yet still hungry for more? May my soul be satisfied, but may I never lose my hunger and fervor and zeal.
