Good afternoon Reader:
In last Sunday’s post, I spoke about a new series of lessons we began at the World Embassy International Christian Center, however, I’m going to call it The Embassy. The lesson is entitled “The 4 Elements of the Holy Ghost Package. “These are the spiritual tools designed to take us through this life.
Proverbs 24 – 3-4 Amplified Version
3. “Through skillful and Godly Wisdom is a house (a life), (a home, a family built), and by understanding it is established”. (Being built on a sound and firm foundation). 4. “And by knowledge shall its chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches”. This is referring to the 5 areas of life.
The 5 Areas of Life
- Spirituality – Peace, Love, Joy Happiness Sharing
- Mental Emotional Health – Heart, Mind, Love (energy)
- Physical – Mind-Body Connection
- Relationships – Family, Friends, Co-Workers and Acquaintances
- Career and Finances
The 4 Elements
Note: So far we have only completed two of these lessons; and I am not sure of in what sequence the next lesson will be revealed, but I do certainly (with the help of the Lord) intend to keep you my Readers informed with this information as it comes forth … but remember, this is my perception, I am, and will be explaining it from my level of understanding. You have to make your own decisions as to how or if this information will help transform you the Reader’s life and find your revelations as I am receiving mine. With these tools (elements) we can learn to use them, no longer by default, but properly and on purpose for which their were designed.
Communication by voice in the distinctively human manner, using arbitrary sounds in conventional ways with conventional meanings; speech. Dictionary.com
As human beings, we are the only creatures that have been given the gift of language. By it, we communicate the things we think, see and feel, be it pain, happiness or fear. When we have any kind of situation, we first think about it, then we talk about it … Sometimes, we talk a lot or very little. The thing we fail to realize is, “Words” do carry Spirit and are perspectives of how we view our lives and all the things around us.
It does not matter whether you believe this or know it (as I do) we are still subject to this Universal Law. One that cannot be transcended (or risen above). Here’s the thing, we have a language of the Natural World and a language of The Holy Ghost (Spirit). Pastor showed us “What we speak out of our mouths has the creative ability to build our lives or destroy them … “and life and death are in the power of the tongue”, (speech, what you say out of your mouth). Among the 31 verses contained in the Book of Genesis, there are 9 verses that begin with the statement “And God said”. Check it out! When you think correctly about it, God spoke everything into being but did nothing with His hands, He only spoke. After God finished His “saying” Genesis 1:31 states …
Genesis 1 – 31 KJV
“And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good …
This says every thing was made, via speaking (language). Now you must realize that there was still no thing on the earth, but only the spoken words (language). Genesis 2:5 states …
Genesis 2 – 5 KJV
“And every plant of the field BEFORE it was in the earth, and every herb of the field BEFORE it grew; for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth and there was no man to till the ground.”
Physical man had not yet even been created. By these two Scriptural statements we can be sure that words (language) carry not just Spirit, but “Creative Spirit”.
It was by language, God made the Tower of Babel being built by men to stop …
Genesis 11 – 1 KJV
“And the whole earth was of one language, of one speech”.
Genesis 11 – 5 KJV
“And the Lord came down to see the city and tower which the children of men builded”.
Genesis 11 – 6 : 7 KJV
6: “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language: and this they begin to do.” 7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech … ”
We were also given the dictionary meaning of the word confound…
to throw into confusion or disorder:
The revolution confounded the people.
to throw into increased confusion or disorder.
to mingle so that the elements cannot be distinguished or separated.
- to defeat or overthrow.
- to bring to ruin or naught.
In this instance, we also have the language of He Holy Ghost whom the Lord has given us as a gift to pray on our behalf of the things God has for us. The Scripture states “Eye have not seen, nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man the things God has in-store for us who love Him”, but we must learn to pray in the language of the Spirit. We are also taught in the Scriptures when you pray in the Spirit no man knows what you are saying and you don’t know yourself unless it is revealed to you. However, it does say pray in the Spirit always, sing in the spirit and discern in the Spirit. When we begin to pray on a regular basis in the Spirit, walls begin falling down, doors begin to open and prosperity and wealth ensue that we may not only care for our personal responsibilities, wants and needs, but that we receive an over abundance so as to be a true light and help to our world and those around us.
There are free Bible Apps in Google Play Store that contain different translations of the Bible and as I recently said the different translations help your understanding of the parables contained in the Bible. Be sure of one thing, most of us who are against the Bible translations are probably going on the bits and pieces of Scripture we have received from Preachers, Pastors, Parents, Grand Parents, friends and acquaintances have given us. However, I would like to challenge all of my Readers to put everything you have ever learned about the Bible aside for just a moment, download one of these apps and listen to your Bible just once, cover to cover, because there is so very much more. I like the audio mode in these apps, because the reading actually brings the things contained in the Bible to life.
Until next post:
Be Blessed and Be Safe
P.S. How many will be willing to take this challenge in truth? It will change your life for the better … Trust in the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul and all your mind! Lean not to your own understanding …
