After I was baptized with the Holy Ghost I would spend the whole day praying in tongues as I worked as a welder. Whenever I paused revelation would come to me, I didn’t ask for it, it just came. It took me awhile to catch on but I was having a conversation that I could ask the Lord questions and He would give me the answers. Any doubt I had has been washed away with all the things the Master has shared with me. Most of the questions I have had were given to me by the Lord Himself.
Luke 11:9 So I say to you, ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you.
So, one day I was praying in the Spirit and I began to think of the condition of the devil. The devil is a fallen angel and all angels are big, powerful and beautiful. So, what happens to them when they chose to follow satan? I have seen devils with the eye of my Spirit when I prayed for people and they are dark, small and shriveled up. So, I asked the Lord what happened to those fallen angels? He told me this, the devils became carriers, they began to carry sickness and disease, they carry the curse. Then I remembered some of the people I prayed for and how their countenance was changed by sickness and disease.
1 Corinthians 2:10 God has revealed the things He has prepared for those who love Him, by His Spirit.
The Lord has some great and wonderful things laid up in store for those who obey Him, but we must receive the revelation of them from the Holy Ghost. If God’s Spirit holds no place of honor in your life, you will never see or know what He has for you. There’s a lot of fake news concerning the Holy Spirit. Now, where do you suppose it all originated? Who has the most to gain by keeping the Spirit of God out of the church of Jesus Christ? If you answered the devil you are exactly right. What would you call a church where the Holy Ghost is not welcome? A morgue, I ought to know, I grew up in one and at the time I thought it was the best thing going.
Luke 9:60 Jesus said unto him, let the dead bury their dead: but go ye and preach the kingdom of God.
Jesus had little tolerance for men who created feeble excuses for not obeying the Father. He was the Father’s voice in the earth and Father would not play religious games with anyone. Men’s eternity hung in the balance and the only thing that could save them was the truth. According to Jewish tradition, if a man didn’t want to do something he would say, let me go and bury my father first. Father loved the people too much to let some worn out excuse keep them from the promises of God.
Revealed knowledge is God imparting His thoughts to those who have an ear for His Spirit. If you don’t hear from God you become a survivor, when you do hear you become an overcomer. Hearing the wisdom of God creates intimacy with God, it makes one feel special because you are.
January 12, 2020
I can now sow my seed in faith, because I overcame the Spirit of fear.
God isn't trying to humble me, He is trying to bless me.
I need to cooperate with Him, and let Him pour me out the blessing.
The more I trust Him, the more I will give.
Our focus the rest of January will be to continue to pray for our Church Body. Taking the Word the Holy Spirit has spoken during our corporate prayer week, meditating on His direction and guidance and being obedient to His Will.
Prayer slips will be available for anyone who would like to request personal prayer.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
