The concept of God’s presence has to be mastered so that we can come into the fullness of Christ.

The presence they carry is the testament that stands to witness the words which they utter. It backs it up with power and authority.
Jesus himself wants us to master that presence so that we may become fruitful and truly live as his disciples. Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit, so shall ye be my disciples. [John 15:8]
