Deeper Revelation

It’s sad that the devil has successfully duped the church into believing that understanding the word as it was written is irrelevant. There are many who have put reading and understanding the word on the back burner in favor of a “revelation” as if they have had some insight into the word that those that seek the word cannot have. This is a classic trick of the word of faith movement who violate the word often, to make you believe that “personal revelation” trumps true word revelation. Understanding the word is a combination of study and prayer. You cannot raise one above the other. The church at large is imploding because of this philosophy that studying the word in the original language and referring to commentaries is somehow a fruitless endeavor. Don’t believe the hype! To stray from the use of scholars as well as the use other reference books to unlock the text of scripture in favor of some ethereal “knowledge” is called “Gnosticism,” a heretical practice that the early church condemned. Combine your prayer life with diligent and thorough study and you will find God’s truth. Remember…it is the word that frees us not our perceived “oneness” with the Spirit of God. Knowing the word is walking in his word, and walking in the Spirit requires understanding the word. We must fight the urge not to rightfully study the word and become diligent as not to fall for the wisdom of crafty men with worldly wisdom clothed in Godliness. As I often say in my radio show…DO THE WORK!

2Corinthians 5 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 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. 20 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.
