When the HOLY SPIRIT, reveals something to a man, and the man receives Understanding to practice it. He is much effective in passing down the revelation to another person through utterance given by the same Spirit of GOD.
It is so much of a good thing, to read Spiritual books and listen to sermons by men of GOD. I personally have gained from it a lot, because you are learning faster…climbing on the shoulders of the experience of a man of GOD. But, there’s a plague that is ravaging believers like never before.
As good as it is, for GOD to create opportunities for believers to live excellent lives, the enemy always tries his best to create counterfeits of those opportunities. That’s where the problem is. We now have believers who depends so much on messages and Books to understand the SCRIPTURES, and less on the HOLY SPIRIT.
These set of believers could listen to sermons throughout a week, and barely read the WORD OF GOD as they are meant to. These false feeling of a greater level roses up in them, making them think they are moving into higher grounds. Do you know what happens in this situation…. When a pastor or whoever, explains the WORD OF GOD to you, and you listen sufficiently to it. It’s like ice-block steps you are climbing, . If you do not sit down to study the WORD OF GOD yourself and receive perfect Understanding of it. You will climb to a certain level, and just 1 storm of life will hit you, Bringing you Back to Level 1.
You are actually meant to solidify and establish that WORD that was deposited I. Your heart. That “going back to the WORD” is what makes the difference. The ability to sit down on your own, and depend on the Spirit of TRUTH for Understanding facilitates Responsibility in the Spirit. #Balance your life in Study and Practice of the WORD OF GOD.
