What has happened even in the Church is that we have lived by our intellect and reasoning rather than out of our spirit. And our problem is, is that the will of God and the truth of God can never be discerned by the mind and reasoning and believed with the mind. It takes discernment, revelation by the Word of God and the Spirit of God by our spirit. The Spirit of God will quicken the Word to our heart and cause it to become more real than anything we pick up on by our senses, all the facts out here in this physical realm.
We hear today in the Church that healing and miracles passed away with the last Apostle, tongues passed away with the early Church, and we are even hearing today God doesn’t speak to His people any more. My conclusion of how those in the Church have came up with these preposterous lies is that some in the Church could not intellectually understand these things and so their intellectual minds with reasoning had to believe God wasn’t healing today and it passed away and the tongues passed away and God doesn’t speak to us anymore. But yet these same people, bless their hearts, go to doctors and take medicine to be healed. If God is not healing today then it would be against the will of God for them to go to the doctor and take medicine to be healed. Because speaking and praying in tongues is something they can’t intellectually understand, some say it is of the devil. Isn’t it funny? Have you ever heard of people in bars and places Satan operations in the earth where they are speaking in tongues? Of course not! It is a lie against the Word of God and the Holy Spirit! Then the latest lie of the anti-Christ spirit in the world today even in the Church is that God doesn’t speak to His people today. This is a lie against the Word of God,
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: KJV
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. KJV
This is a preposterous lie against the Word of God and against the Holy Spirit to say that God doesn’t speak to us today! Again, this lie comes from the intellectuals of the Church inspired by the anti-Christ spirit and the intellect and not the Spirit of God and being spirit led!
Think about it, wouldn’t the anti-Christ spirit like to bring confusion in the Church by spreading this lie that God doesn’t speak to His people today so that the Church can’t hear from God? God is speaking but the reason the Church is not hearing God speak to them is they are so caught up in the carnal life, natural living and they don’t have the time of day nor take the time to develop their spiritual senses to discern the voice of God and what God is speaking to them. Their minds are so cluttered with natural thoughts that they can’t stay focused long enough to hear the Lord speaking to them.
< I will give you a few examples of discernment so that you can exercise your spiritual senses to discern how and when God is speaking to you. God does speak audibly, out loud today where you can hear Him with your natural ears on your head but that is not His primary way. He may speak with a still small voice that you hear in your spirit and this is why we need to exercise hearing what the Spirit of God is speaking to us through our spirit. You will discern God speaking to you through promptings and you feel like you need to do this or say this. You may feel like you need to go to this place or stay away from this place. These promptings could save your life.
Take the 9/ll incident in New York city. I believe God spoke to all of those individuals what was going to happen because He is a God of mercy and wants none to perish and some picked up on the promptings and yet others intellectualized it or got into such fear and did just the opposite. All of us have had those times of reasoning ourselves out of something we strongly felt in our spirit we needed to do or say but then we have at other times done what God was prompting us to do and we were amazed how things turned out.
God can speak to us through objects in the earth like billboards or signs. God can just give us a word that gives us the answer we need. God can speak to us through dreams and visions. There are many ways God speaks to us but we have to be focused on God speaking to us throughout our day. And then once we pick up on it, we cannot afford to go to our reasoning which will talk us out of it every time.
We perceive truth of the Kingdom of God by our born again spirit picking it up as truth revealed through the meditation of the Word and by the Spirit of God.
The truth of heaven is law in the realm of the Spirit. Facts are a reality here but they are not the law of Heaven and the law of the Word of God. Facts could be used in the court of law here but not used in the Court of Heaven because they would contradict the truth of the Word of God. Facts are of this realm.
In this period of time on earth the truth is being projected in the earth by the lying spirit of anti-Christ as deception, untruths.
1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. KJV
John 8:44-45 Ye are of your father the devil,…. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. KJV
The anti-Christ spirit has a lie going now that the Church just made up the whole story about Hell and of people going there who do not receive Jesus as their Savior. They are also lying when they say there are many ways to Heaven. No, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is Jesus is the only Way to Heaven. You need to get that clear in your soul. Another lie of the anti-Christ spirit is that God rescued Jesus from the cross and He never died. And we also hear this same spirit declaring that Jesus never rose again. Another deception of the anti-Christ spirit is that God made a person a male in a female body or a female in a male body. The anti-Christ spirit tells us that a fetus is not a human which is entirely contradictory to the Word of God the truth. Another lie we hear is the topic of global warming and there is not enough resources in the earth for everyone. The thing about the global warming is that the sin of Adam, the first man, caused all kinds of problems with this earth and the atmospheric conditions but no one wants to hear the truth because then they would have to believe the bible and believe there is a God. Another lie being told is there is not enough resources on planet earth to supply all nations which is a preposterous lie of the devil against God, the Creator, who created all things perfect and placed enough here for everyone but the greed of men has created this lie in order to destroy the lives of many people. See this anti-Christ spirit is calling the truth a lie and God and the Church preaching the truth are liars! See to the natural mind and natural reasoning this sounds right. This is why we need to know the truth of God’s Word and make God’s Word the only truth for our lives. The bible tells us that in the last days even the very elect could be deceived by all the lies. How could that be? These are Christians have not made the truth of God’s Word final authority in their lives and instead live by their intellect, reasoning and physical senses and so they are easily being deceived and some will even deny Christ.
Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; KJV
We must be mature and develop our spiritual senses because the devil is using the media to convince people the truth is a lie and the lie is the truth and even in the Church they are becoming convinced. He is using prominent people in the media and the arts to voice his lies.
In this time we are going to have to judge all things whether it is fact or truth like never before. And as I have clearly shown you, you will only be able to do that by making God’s Word, the bible, the truth in your life and final authority. So this is going to require that you know what the Word of God says and also allow the Holy Spirit to cause it to become rhema Word, revealed Word to you. To know the truth means you are going to have to live every day out of your spiritual senses; seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling in the spirit. Hebrews tells us we can exercise our spiritual senses to discern both good and evil and we must!
Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. KJV
We need to exercise our faith and exercise our spiritual senses every single day in order to pick up on what God is speaking to us and what really is true. Start today using your faith on little things like a parking space at the grocery store right up front. Use your faith on the strife in your household; that today it has stopped and all the confusion and evil works it produced has ended! And keep exercising and exercising your faith until you will be amazed just what you can use faith to do for you!
See faith is supposed to work for you. You are supposed to give it an assignment, a job to do and it will go to work for you. See faith is a law and if you put that law to work in this realm, it will produce what the truth of God’s Word declares as reality in your life in this realm. Faith produces the truth in this realm. Put faith to work now by giving it an assignment! Then continue to refuse to look at the facts, giving them none of your time, focus, attention, thought or access to your imagination!
Remember Abraham considered not, would allow none of his thoughts or imagination to continue to paint the picture in his mind of his body being dead and the deadness of Sarai’s womb but he only allowed his soul (mind, will, emotions, intellect and imagination) to think on and paint the picture in his imagination of the son God had promised. See that’s the power of the truth of the promises of God! The law of faith, the promises of God, the truth of God’s Word are supernatural, heavenly substance that overcome all facts in this realm. The bible tells us plainly that all facts are subject to change but the truth is never subject to change for it is eternal! So why not base your life on something that is eternal instead of basing your life on something that is temporal or subject to change?
2 Cor 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. KJV
We live by faith and not by sight (facts)!
I am warning you Church of the Living God you must become spiritually perceptive and not settle for perception by natural means! You will be deceived and stolen from and killed and destroyed by this anti-Christ, lying, and deceptive spirit that is in the world. There is much deception in this world today and we need to discern whether what we are told are lies or truth, anti-Christ spirit or Spirit of God! It is urgent we develop our spiritual perception.
I am realizing more and more we have in the body of Christ those who do not exercise their spiritual senses and may not even know they have them and there are some who do not exercise their faith on a daily basis. As important as it is that we exercise our body muscles to strengthen them even so it is vitally important we exercise our spiritual senses and use our faith daily to grow up into Christ and become spiritually stronger. God gave each one of us a measure of faith and he has given each of us perception through our spirit man to be victorious. We have to quit ignoring these spiritual tools God has given us to fight our battles or then we will begin to wonder why the promises God has given us are not happening. Start exercising your spiritual senses and put faith to work on something every single day.
