The Teaching of The LORD
Last night I believe that the Holy Spirit began to deal with me on a few things as I sat with Him.
I then I asked him about the deeper prophetic flow as I was reading from the book of St Matthew, chapter 26, and saw Yeshua was so detailed in His revelations.
I then perceived a very profound illustration. I saw as it were a body of water and a man (Holy Spirit) standing at the shore as if to show me it’s vastness.
Then He began to speak to My Spirit, that when a person is just learning to swim, they don’t go out to the deep at first, they start from the shallow end.
But as they keep going back to the water to learn to swim, gradually they start to go further and further till they master the art and can go into deeper depths diving, floating. They can manage the waters.
So it is in the Prophetic and the things of God.
When you just learn or become aware of the gift your prophecies are somewhat “shallow.”
But as you begin to go to the Word of God, go in prayer and worship overtime you start to go into deeper things, faith grows, wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the word deepens.
Certain revelations one has to be able to handle and it comes with maturity. I was then reminded of Ezekiel 47:3-5,
“And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.”
Rabbi Yeshua HaMashiach says: “I AM Training you!”
“I AM training you up that you may teach.
From My Spirit I will pour into you, My Spirit which is My Word, not doctrines of men or rudiments of this world.
I AM teaching you that you may go out and be a “fisher of men‘ that you may bring them to the light of the TRUTH, that you may build on the foundations laid by My Apostles who were before you, that you may rebuild the waste places.
Child, this teaching will take as long as it takes for you to learn, for you will not walk in error, neither operate in a wrong or corrupted spirit.
For I have seen your heart and I’ve seen your faithfulness and how you’ve stewarded that which I have started you with, and so now you’ve been found worthy.
Child, remain focused and do not become distracted with how things look around you.
For these are light afflictions and can never be compared to the glory, MY GLORY, MY MANIFESTED PRESENCE that shall now be revealed in you.
Surely you have suffered long for My Name’s sake: persecuted but not forsaken, pressed on every side yet not destroyed know that every situation brings revelation of Me.
For all these things are used that you may be identified with My suffering, that you may bring healing to the afflicted.
I show you how to overcome that you may go forth and bring deliverance.
Child, think it not a light thing, all things are working together for your good.
You will not be tarnished, tainted or stained.
I suffered and died that you may live, yet not you but My Spirit in you that will bring forth an awakening, a quickening, and resurrection power in you.
Know this, Prophecy is not to impress but to testify of My Spirit, (Revelation 19:10).
- Prophecy comes to bring realignment and correction, (1 Corinthians 14:24-25, Jeremiah 23:18,22).
- Prophecy is to bring revelation of things to come, foreknowledge, and telling forth, (Amos 3:5-7).
- Prophecy edifies, it teaches, it exhorts, it comforts, (1 Corinthians 14:3, Ephesians 4:11-12).
- Prophecy explains the otherwise inexplicable and that is why the proud and vain will not receive lest they boast themselves and give me no glory.
For long My Spirit has departed from many that now operate in a gift I have no pleasure in taking back – I AM not that kind of god, I give freely and liberally.
They have only lost the exuberance of the full manifestation of Me working through them -dead works.
I call them unprofitable and unfruitful.
The reason My Holy Spirit came was that I could be in all My Children and bring reconciliation to My Father.
That I may empower them for the greater works, and they are greater works for I have been glorified and seated on high,” says the Spirit of the Sovereign God.
“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,” 2 Corinthians 5:18-21.
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him,” Acts 10:38.
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you,” John 16:7.
“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance,” Acts 2:1-4.
It’s OK! I’m Saved!
Saints, gifts and anointing don’t save us!
Knowing The Messiah Yahusha and accepting the finished work on Calvary does!!
Living Holy as He is Holy, does.
Being obedient and not taking His GRACE for granted does. Not because the Holy Spirit used you to do a work, or is using you, that doesn’t guarantee salvation.
Remember the Spirit of Prophecy came upon Saul and even he prophesied (1 Samuel 10:10).
The LORD opened Baalam’s donkey eyes to see the angel and opened his mouth to speak for a sign unto Baalam (Numbers 22:23).
We need to stop sinning presumptuously, going on stubbornly and being rebellious and offended by God for correction, doing whatever we feel like and still say we’re saved and its okay, because God still uses us.
Must we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid!
Seek help if you need it, for God is able to deliver to the uttermost.
We need to repent and get our houses in order.
Oh LORD help us!
