Being Taught of God

Being Taught of God
The Word of God is not bound! God’s Word is forever settled in heaven! By God’s Word all things were created! The word became flesh and dwelt among us!
Beloved if you and I are going to get anywhere we are going to have to do it by God’s Word. Through the study of God’s Word we receive knowledge of Him. Not head knowledge alone but heart knowledge. We are to have faith come to us by the Word of God! We, as the people of God are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. That renewing is going to come only by the Word of God. Conforming to the standards of the society in which we live is never going to prosper us spiritually. 
We are to be conformed by the Word to the image of Christ. The Word of was made flesh and dwelt among us. In us the word dwells, in our flesh, and changes us to the image of the Word as we become doers of the Word and not hearers only. Hearing only will never do. Sad to say this is what most people do. They just listen with ears of flesh instead of the heart. When receiving the Word into our heart we are allowing God to work in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. Too many people are trying to do without the will to do and this only makes it law. The law killeth, but the Spirit gives life.
The Holy Spirit of God must quicken the Word of God in us to make it the Living Word. Many people, professional people, brilliantly academic people have studied God’s Word only to say that there is no truth in it or that it’s only historical. They say that there are contradictions in it or some other such nonsense. When one looks at the Word of God it must be illuminated By the Holy Spirit.
If we ask the Holy Spirit to open our eyes, hearts, and ears we will begin to see the all powerful truths of God’s word. I’m not talking here about the Theologians. I’m not talking about someone with lots of degrees at the end of their name, although you could have that and still have what I am talking about.    I’m talking about being taught by God just the way Jesus said He would do. 
Far too many have replaced the Holy Spirit with some learning institution. God placed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in the church for the edifying of the body.   The Word is to be taught by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is to be handed to the next generation of faithful people so that the truth of God’s Word is not flawed or weakened. 
Too many people don’t want anything to do with the church or church people for this reason: There is to much division - to week - cold love - to critical - condemning - and the list goes on. These things are not to be even named among God’s people much less present.
How many would like to see God’s people believing the same things, speaking the same things, living according to the same standards, worshiping in unity, working together for the sake of the gospel, praying together with faith for the same things to happen where we live and around the world?
These things can and will happen when it is all based on the truths of God’s Word and His Word only. Holy Spirit help us come to the truth, to lay hold on it and never forsake it in the name of Jesus!!!
