If you wish to view the YouTube of last Friday’s teaching just click this URL https://youtu.be/4iXgO3bA6cc. I am not planning to always post them here.
I am so grateful for the privilege of posting in this place as well as having the YouTube channel. These are gifts to be used for the Kingdom of God. We are living in an exciting time and it is good to take advantage of all discoveries for the Kingdom. They all belong to Him.
I am pondering (a lot) the need the Body of Christ has for Bible teaching. I am aware that not everyone needs nor desires the teaching through Psalm 19. That is not what I am pondering. We are a church people and attendance in the Body is very, very important. However, eating from the Word only once a week, or only studying occasionally really will not make us strong in the Spirit. We are called to be Spirit people and His love compels us to fortify our Spirit-person with the Word. Having a good knowledge of what He has said to His people, not only for our age, but also in the past – from this Covenant’s point of view, is what the Apostle Paul was talking about when he wrote to Timothy, “Study to show yourselves approved unto God rightly dividing the Word of God.” KJV “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 NIV. There is a real need among us to become well versed in the Word and then learn to handle it well, “rightly divide.” There is more to the book than originally meets the eye and the heart, and I want to encourage all who read here to dig deeply and allow His wisdom to invade your life.
He has so much for us – allow Him to make you hungry for Himself. This is one thing that revival does – it makes us hungry for more. May it be so among us! Let us emphasize the Word and be those who use it as salt in our lives and encouragements.
Just one more note. It is important to know the Word – what it really says, not just what my background or denomination says it says. We must be students of the Holy Spirit in discovering the truths of His Word. Join me in this – in Spirit and in truth. Read, study, and meditate – all Biblical exercises needed for a thorough and effective knowledge of His person and Word. It must be Spirit and Word. Not one or the other – but both in our hearts, lives, and actions.
WARNING: Such practices will change your life – from the inside out. What glory He shares! May we be recipients of it all!
