Following the Spirit – Part II

Following the Spirit – Part II

To continue from our last entry, we see in the numbers 9 & 10 account, that the children of Israel stayed put when the Cloud by day and the Fire by night remained stationary over the tabernacle, and they followed the Cloud and Fire as it lifted and began to moved.  Israel saw with their physical eyes the Spirit moving as the Cloud and Fire moved, they did not have the indwelling presence of The Holy Spirit guiding them, so they needed to SEE with their physical eyes, and hear with their physical ears.  But for the church today, since we have the Holy Spirit living in our recreated human  spirits bearing witness to us (Rom 8:16), we have the potential to pick up the frequency ( or voice) of the Holy Spirit clearly, so we can begin to SEE and HEAR  into the UNSEEN (Eph 1:18).

Like Israel who saw so clearly the Cloud by day and Fire by night begin to move, it should be as clear for us to SEE the spirit begin to move with the eye’s and ears of our hearts. You might say, “Does my heart really have eyes and ears?” O, yes indeed, the scripture talks much about our inward senses which God has given for us to contact the unseen Kingdom.  In addition we see in John 3:8- just like we HEAR the wind move, we should be able to HEAR the move of the Holy Spirit in our spirits.

Our hearts or spirits is what is created in Gods image and likeness, it is the part of us that can pick up the frequency of the Spirit. Unless God talks to us in an audible voice, or materializes so our natural eyes can see Him, our natural senses can not come in contact with God. It is our Spirits that picks up the frequency of Heaven so we can HEAR and SEE into that realm.

To go one step further, in John 10 24-25 we read “24- Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do you keep us doubt? If You are the the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25- “Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do  not believe. The WORKS that I do in My Fathers name, THEY bear WITNESS ( or speak) of Me.”   We know that God Word is creative, a living thing (Heb 4:12),  every time God says something it happens, it is created, so attached to every Word God speaks is a manifestation. So what Jesus was saying in John 10:24-25 is that God has already spoken. And how do I know that God has already spoken?  It is by SEEING the Manifestation (or workings) of the spoken Word. Let me give you an example, God said that He is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer, God has already spoken this, Jesus came Healing the lame, maimed, all who were oppressed of the devil. Those WORKS of HEALING was the evidence that God has spoke, and is still speaking, because inside of  every Spoken Word of God is the substance to manifest it. The Church tells us that evangelization occurs through Words and Deeds, that these two things (Words & Deeds) are synonyms with each other, one brings with it the other. What does this mean?  That if the true Word of God is released, their is a DEED (or Manifestation) attached to it. As Gods Word goes forth out of His mouth, it will not return to Him VOID, but will accomplish (make happen) what I please and it will prosper in the thing for which I sent it.  (Isa 55:11), Praise God!

So today,  lets begin as believers of the Church of Jesus Christ,  to pick up the frequency of the Holy Spirit, and receive the Word of God, the Deposit of Faith in our hearts,  the living Word which has a divine manifestation attached to it. And let us go boldly into this desperate and dying world and re-deposit this living Word into the lost,  allowing Gods Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
