SPIRIT OF TRUTH

Not All Things Are As They SEEM

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Which things also we speak, not in the words that man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:  for they are foolishness unto him:  neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned  (1 Corinthians 2: 12-14).    Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things NOT SEEN… Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which ARE SEEN were not made with things which do appear  (Hebrews 11: 1, 3).

All around us we see things with our natural eyes and we tend to BELIEVE that what we see IS  REAL and it IS TRUTH.  Olive, in her limited understanding sees the strawberries and bananas and she knows they satisfy her immediate need (hunger); therefore, she eats them.  She really does not process the nutritional value of the fruit, nor does she have any knowledge of  the many things that were involved in getting that fruit onto her table.  IT WAS PUT THERE, SHE EATS IT.  

The media today will report what they see happening around the world as truth.  However, a reporter in Russia may see and report something happening in the United States with a completely different meaning of “truth” than the person reporting the same thing  in New York.  We SEE the natural world through eyes that have been conditioned to the undertsanding developed in a “familiar” environment.  So, if a person has never heard of Jesus Christ and has never had any contact with information about Jesus; s/he would have a hard time BELIEVING the truth of our sermons or teachings.  It is also hard for many (even born-again believers) to wrap their natural “logic” around the person of Holy Spirit.  Come on now, would you believe me if I said that I would send “someone” to you who would INDWELL you and would give you the power to defeat all your enemies?  Not a chance! 

However, to those who will BELIEVE what I say; even though they cannot see, feel, touch, smell, hear the Person (Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of Man) I am talking about; these WILL have a MANIFESTED Presence descend into them and fill them in such a way that they cannot deny He is real.  It is the Spirit of the Living God and He will indwell you and bear witness of His reality and He will bring you wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ (who now lives in heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father and WILL be returning to this natural earth one day soon).  

Just like Olive, I can’t explain how this is all accomplished, BUT I KNOW, I BELIEVE with ASSURANCE that it is TRUTH.  I eat of it and I continue to grow daily in the WISDOM of this TRUTH.

    Pray for the starting of new studies in the area where W lives. He took the training in La Ceiba in February.

    Pray for new DBS’s to be started in the La Ceiba area.

    Pray for the new church in Danli. I just got word today that a new church has been started there.

    • As I was reading through the list of prayer requests I saw in two places (Tocoa, Danli) there were new churches started.

      The passage in Acts that immediately came into my mind is 2: 41-47 and the two verses I declare over this ministry/outreach are: Then they that gladly received his word were baptized; and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls (41)…and they continued STEADFASTLY in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship (42) Continued daily with ONE ACCORD…singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with ALL the people. And the LORD ADDED TO the church daily such as SHOULD BE SAVED. (46,47). (I have just decreased need to type so much you are all familiar with the passage :).

      The Lord would say unto you… “Look for My handiwork in all things pretaining to this movement for it is I alone who cause the growth. There are many who will be drawn by My Spirit; those who have much wounding in their spirits. It is the evidence of My love in the hearts of the leaders that will bring the people who need to be saved into the fold of those who reach out to them on common ground. They will build upon the foundation of My TRUTH and they will be steadfast in their love towards Me as I begin to heal them and My Spirit reveals Me to them through My Truth. There will be people added to the church daily and the church WILL grow by My power and might, says the Lord.”

  3. I will be praying for your trip and also put it on our prayer email next week! Thanks for the word. Yes a new church just began in the area of Danli, first in that area since we have been working there. Now 173 churches.

    Praise God!

    • I am praying for double that in the next year…at the least!
