Divine gifts for a mature human understanding of divinity are the topic, today, specifically meekness.  A “Yahoo! Answers” fighter using the ID “Halbhh” (Level 4 with 4,706 points, a member since January 24, 2012) posted the following:

 

Help I don’t understand metaphors or allegories at all, and I have a big urge to satire Bible stories?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’s anger come upon you.  Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness:  it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.  For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation:  they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.  (Zephaniah 2:  2-4, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Life Given By Knowledge? (04/03/2013); A Spirit Church? (04/04/2013); How To Love GOD? (03/24/2013); A Second Adam? (03/25/2013); The Place for Eternal Life? (01/06/2013); Therefore There Was Trust (01/07/2013); The Meek Will Inherit (10/16/2012)

 

“Halbhh”, it does require that you have maturity and self-mastery, because the first commitment you must make is that of agreeing to learn.  Here are a few points to consider that have been helpful to many Christian believers:

(1.)  In baptism (death of ones inborn spirit along with spirit rebirth from substance imparted by GOD), believers are “born again,” and must “grow up” again, encountering growing pains and the same life challenges as all others upon the earth.  In the same way you probably began speaking to your parents without knowing “mama” or “dada”, and had to develop understanding over time, believers all must begin to apprehend the things from GOD little by little.

(2.)  Sacred knowledge from the holy writings are only one source for being built up and increased by divinity.  There also should be fellowship with committed and experienced  believers, and ongoing sacred practice (i.e., observing peculiar disciplines such as confession, giving, prayer) and unselfish service.

(3.)  Where mockers and scoffers operate in ignorance (a condition of finite intelligence, or the lack of right knowledge and information), they are to be pitied, encouraged and ministered to, for such persons are yet teachable.  However, where bitterness and a spirit of antichrist prevail, direct operations of the Holy Spirit must occur, for the unbeliever may already be fixed and sealed in divine condemnation.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Many believers are excited about receiving divine gifts such as healing, or speaking in tongues, and may overlook specifically petitioning and praying for meekness.  Meekness is the ability to learn from and respond to operations and promptings by the indwelling spirit from GOD.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
