And He will show you things to come. It is going to take a deeper walk; one that is not limited to what others have taught us.
It’s going to be about what we have been shown for ourselves. We’ve spent a lot of time in days past, perhaps even today, talking about what we call “truth.”
I truly hesitate to say this, but it seems that many of us are going to have to start all over again. Listening for His voice.
It was written, that the Spirit would be our teacher. And that He would lead us and guide us into all truth. Somehow, the last part of that declaration, began to fade.
The part about that He was going to show us things to come. It ouches many of us, that we should actually know much more than we do.
Can we say we know more of the deeper things of God now, than when we first started?
Just how much has been revealed to me along the way?
What places have I really gone to in Him?
As we continue to study, seeking and desiring to follow the lead of the Spirit, more is revealed to us. In truth, it is truly happening right now.
God is revealing more of His word and His ways, to those who yet seek to know them; just as He promised He would. Perhaps, one of the first things we might have been taught, is that God has hidden things in his Word.
Without seeking to sound crude, wasn’t there something said about casting your pearls before those who didn’t want them.
What we have been taught, we are to teach to others. That’s what Paul was saying to Timothy. We should all be teaching others, not having to be taught all over again.
Immature, like a child that is still on milk. I’m glad today, that so many of us can remember one particular ministry of the church; that of the Holy Ghost and called position of the teacher. There are many things we cannot deny today; we saw them in action.
“Neglect not the gift that is in thee,” (1 Timothy 4:14).
This has been impressed upon my spirit several times in the past few days.
In fact, dear Timothy was reminded of this twice. We have reached a true crossroads. Many will not hear you; but it is my honest belief that many will; especially today.
Some have departed from the faith. Only now, did I fully see that word “some.” Well, it seems there’s always been some. But, what is “the faith“?
Yes, a great falling away was foretold. But let us be reminded, that Jesus Christ is not coming back for a left over church; a few loyals who have held out til the end.
I do believe that God is waiting for our desire, to lift us above our fear. Does it make sense, that the closer He is to coming back, the more many are yearning for Him? That which was placed inside of so many of us, can not longer be suppressed. It is yet still alive.
“Rightly dividing the word of truth,” (2 Timothy 2:15).
We can’t do that, if we do not study. And we can’t be approved unto God, unless we do.
There is so much the Spirit can reveal to us. Things we need to know in this hour, and things we must share with those He puts in our path. There is no private revelation/ interpretation.
All can be tried by the Spirit; so everyone can profit from it. I am getting older now, but I still cannot settle for anything less.
