Supernatural/ Spiritual Connector 5
In the Christian faith, there are several versions and MANY denominations. These different sects have certain aspects of the Christian faith that they give more pre-eminence than another sect.
It is not my place to be judgemental on any version of Christianity; one thing that is clear to me is that this walk/journey is PERSONAL; hence we have the phrase – ‘a Personal Relationship with the LORD‘.
From my experience in the Faith, I can easily say the Holy Spirit has been my NUMBER 1 TEACHER, which is good because I am not looking to religion but to the source Himself – The Holy Spirit.
For someone looking for a regular place of worship – visiting a location or online, I would advise such person to go to a place where they feel comfortable.
Talking of comfortable, I do not feel congenial about a lot of Christian gatherings. As much as I have forgiven the bad and evil that I have endured in some Christian churches, I do not think I can go back to them unless invited.
I can watch some sermons online, and the sermons/preachers, I more gravitate toward those with empowering messages. I am under the enemy’s radar 24/7 and constantly attached spiritually; hence I appreciate strong messages.
The Christian faith / Spiritual warfare is not easy, but one MUST endure one’s lot in life and PRESS ON; therefore, I will not complain. However, I do not have to withstand the WRONG / INJUSTICES done in any religious establishments,
Therefore, if I do NOT feel comfortable due to your past dealings, I don’t believe it is my fault, and I will NOT walk into a place I have been Spiritually abused in the PAST. If I am invited, I will honor the INVITE.
I had to get stuff off my chest, so let us continue with the subtitle CONNECTOR.
As already indicated, the connector- The Word of God is God’s gift to us to awaken spiritually and receive enlightenment. I say the connector is God’s gift to us because in the beginning was the Word, the Word came to dwell among us, and God so loved the world that He gave His Son.
Another fascinating principle in the connector is ONLY SPEAKING THE WORD and holding your ground. At some stage in our Christian journey and walk, most people have operated in this POWER level; however, it may not be as consistent as we would like it to be.
The Phrase Only Speak the Word comes from Matthew 8: 5-10
As Jesus went into Capernaum, a [b]centurion came up to Him, begging Him [for help], 6 and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, with intense and terrible, tormenting pain.” 7 Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 But the centurion replied to Him, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof, but only say the Word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man subject to authority [of a higher rank], with soldiers subject to me; and I say to one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard this, He was amazed and said to those who were following Him, “I tell you truthfully, I have not found such great Faith [as this] with anyone in Israel.
As we see in verse 8b, the centurion understood that the physical world is parallel to the Spiritual, and he said to Jesus only say the Word. Jesus was astounded by what the centurion had said, and Jesus called this Great Faith.
The Bible also tells us that without FAITH, it is impossible to please God. ( Hebrews 11.6)
Consequently, of the verse above ( Matthew 8: 5-10), we have what we call the FAITH MOVEMENT, a doctrine in itself. As I indicated earlier, I have nothing against any denomination, nor am I Judgemental; I know that it is a Spiritual principle that should be applied when needed.
The Level of POWER, to only speak the Word, is easier for some Christians to flow in than others, and I think the reason has to do with a person’s calling and gifts.
We all have frequencies in which we emit energy, some people’s frequency is higher or lower than others. God’s messengers such as Prophets, I believe, will have the highest frequency; hence it should be the norm for them ONLY to SPEAK the WORD. However, nothing is automatic in our Faith. To be able ONLY to SPEAK the WORD consistently and HOLD YOUR GROUND– not wavering in one’s Faith, such a person must seldom be in the ZONE.
The Zone is the high place of consciousness, and the Christian term for this is living or being in the Spirit.
Then the obvious question would be how we live in the Spirit; first thing first; it requires DISCIPLINE.- a life of regular PRAYING & FASTING.
We see the same principle used by the Father of FAITH – Abraham; Father Abraham had to wait a long time after God called him out of his Father’s house to walk with him (God).
In my opinion, God was working and growing Abraham’s consciousness and elevating him to a higher place in the Spirit; eventually, Father Abraham caught the revelation, as we see in Romans.4.17
As it is written, I have made you the Father of many nations. [He was appointed our Father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the non-existent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.
As we see in the above verse, ‘speaks of non -existent things that as if they existed, is the same principle in Matthew 8: 5-10. If we study all of the Miracles Jesus and other miracles performed in the Bible, they used the same principle. As a matter of fact, God used the same principle in creating the universe, the Heaves, and the Earth as Jesus defined the flow in this level of Power as GREAT FAITH.
If a person is a Prophet of God, this GREAT FAITH MUST BE THE NATURAL MODE OF OPERATION.
As we see in Romans 12.6, Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: [He whose contribution is] prophecy, [let him prophesy] according to the proportion of his Faith.
The knowledge of the CONNECTOR – the Word of God, allows us to flow in this Great Faith; in other words, we MUST have Faith in God.
Beware the enemy will try and steal the spoken Word one uttered, Hence King Solomon said we should guard our mind for out of it are the issues of life. WE CAN NOT WAIVER IN OUR OF FAITH.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
