Points are shared, today, on having correct sacred knowledge through one’s own spirit content.  To say, “use your brain to know…” is no different than saying, “use your elbow, your right hand, your flesh to know” the things that are genuinely from GOD.  For Christian believers, the source for spiritual knowledge, like the weapons of spiritual warfare, must be faith, righteousness, truth and other manifestations of divine spirit, rather than the products of finite tools for academic study, intellect, logic, reason, and science.  The expectation and focus of a believer a believer in Jesus Christ (we say, hope) becomes those things revealed and maintained by the Holy Spirit (also called the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth).  Thus, it is written:  2nd Corinthians 5:  6-8, King James Version (KJV):  6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:  7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)  8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  A fighter at “Yahoo!

Use your brain to know that islam is not from the God of the Bible and come out of it. Have you read the Bible to know the 1 true God?


THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Behold, I come quickly:  hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out:  and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God:  and I will write upon him my new name.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:  I would thou wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten:  be zealous therefore, and repent.  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:  if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.  (Revelation 3:  11-22, KJV)


THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Can GOD Give Life? (08/14/2016); (The Testimony From Jesus 08/05/2016); The Flesh An Obstacle? (07/29/2016); An Habitation of GOD (07/24/2016); Flesh Against the Spirit? (06/19/2016); Beyond Anything We Imagine? (11/13/2015); Carnal Needs, Sacred Tools? (03/26/2015)


“daniel”, many mature Christian believers will encourage you to say, “Use the imparted, indwelling Spirit from GOD to know the meaning and value of the many doctrines and teachings that pertain to life.”  The need is for sacred instead of carnal and secular knowledge that come by operations of the flesh (e.g., intellect, logic, reason, science) anchored in appetite, sensation (hearing, smelling, tasting, etc.) or emotions/mental functions such as anger, fear, imagination, and recall.  The Bible becomes important as a source of spirit content from the makeup of divinity.  Believers are to develop discernment (ability to use one’s own spirit content from GOD to recognize and respond to spirit content appearing within covenants, events, gifts, messages, oneself, other persons, prophecy, etc. 

Sinners through the inheritance from Adam must receive a fresh endowment of Spirit from GOD.  There must be “baptism” (death of the inborn spirit, “rebirth” from divine DNA, so to speak).  As children of GOD, and offspring to divinity, sinners are permanently changed, for they receive inseparable aspects of divinity such as faith, forgiveness, holiness, joy, peace, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  “Born again” they must “grow up again” meeting life challenges upon the earth, and becoming ripe (we say, mature) for harvest by Christ at his coming.

Using the views generated through our physical form, material world, and social milieu, “faith” is little more than an expression of one’s individual desires, lusts, and private opinions.  Consider how some of this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)  1st Corinthians 2:  9-14, King James Version (KJV):  9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:  for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.  12 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.  13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  14 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.

(2.)  Romans 8:  13-17, KJV:  13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:  but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (3.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
