Spiritual Knowledge and the Practical Experience — 6 Comments

  1. Glory be to God!  Thank you for sharing such good wisdom to apply to grow ones knowledge for understanding. I appreciate you brother.  Continued grace for advancement of the Kingdom of God. AMEN.  Be Forever Blessed!

  2. I quote “That is why a journey with the Holy Spirit and a conversation with the Holy Spirit will always be more important than a journey in your bible and a conversation from your bible.”

    I find this statement very problematic, because reading the Bible and listening to the Holy Spirit are not alternatives but need to go together.  First, the Bible was written by the Holy Spirit – and for a purpose, since,
    “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” [2 Timothy 3:16]
    Secondly, in this capacity, the Bible is essential as a means of testing that the spirit we may be listening to is indeed the Holy Spirit, since
    “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits,..” [1 John 4:1]

    If we undermine the importance of the Bible, we effectively deny an important channel through which the Holy Spirit speaks to us, and we cannot presume that He will then tell us everything we need to know only through non-Biblical channels.  To do so, would be to set ourselves up for deception, since the Bible is unique in revealing matters of doctrine which are inseparable from the faith by which we are saved – and by which we may remain saved.

    • I agree wholeheartedly with Mark Roberts. I have seen much damage being done by people who think that they no longer need the bible. I now give a body swerve to anyone saying such things. Paul said to the Bereans to read for themselves.
