And He Sent His Word and Healed Them
Understanding comes as a reward for faith; call on the keys to give you that faith.
There is a spiritual void in the lives of “worldly” Christians –and let’s face the facts, most Christians today are worldly.
So, this void is causing unbelief. Not unbelief in God’s Word per se, but a lack of perception. The quote at the top of the page says: “Understanding comes as a reward of faith”. The reason Christians don’t understand, or a more precise word would be discern, the times they are living in is because they lack faith.
Faith comes before a person is gifted with understanding. Faith comes by reading and believing the Word of God. Either Christians today are not reading the Word of God or they have not believed the Word they have been given.
Reading the Bible is progressive; you take your first step, you accept what you read by faith, and then understanding comes. Then you take the next step and so on and so forth. It takes faith to read the Bible, because understanding may not come in the same way a person understands 1 + 1 = 2. Often God requires the reader to accept by faith that what they are reading is the truth. It’s something like algebra: 1 + x = 2; 2 being the truth and x being faith, the unknown factor.
Whilst reading the Word of God, you will undoubtedly come across a step that you don’t understand, maybe you have been told to put that one on the shelf of faith. If you do as told in a genuine spirit of belief, in time, God may give you understanding, perception, insight, a sense of knowing or awareness.
It has been said that life is a spiritual school. This is the truth, and like school you must pass your grades in order to graduate to the next level. I’m reminded of what Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 2: 10-12; about being misled if you receive not the love of the truth. If you misunderstand a step in your spiritual progression, yet you try to push ahead anyway, you will lack the necessary faith required at the next level. And if faith is not there, then you cannot be rewarded with that understanding, perception, insight, sense of knowing, awareness.
“The keys will enable you to face reality. Call on the keys and I will clarify anything you ask Me, and you will rise above as never before in triumph by My Spirit.”
Take hold of the keys of boldness to proclaim My truth; grasp tightly the keys of revolution to remain separate from the world; and cling to the keys of commitment, which make you never want to be a part of the world and its ways.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:2,3 that the Pharisees lacked the discernment to understand the times they were living in. This is because they lacked faith in Him, the Word of God. They had not received the love of the truth.
If you are stumbling to accept the times you are living in, there is a very real possibility that you have missed, not accepted or misunderstood one or a few steps in your spiritual schooling.
Call on the keys of faith to help you to see everything in a new light.
Ezekiel 36 and 37
In front of them there is an army of dark figures who are nervously holding their ranks.This dark army is like a cloud of darkness spreading for miles in the distance.
