*The following is written as it was spoken to me by the Lord on October 15, 2021.
New direction. New progress. New understanding. New breakthrough.
I sent 3 ships a'sailing
Across the ocean blue
The new world to discover
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)
A man is only as strong as his weakest moment, as wise as he is humble.
“For I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy.” (Act 2:17; Eph 1:17)
Prophecy is the revelation of future events.
Wisdom is the decoding of knowledge. It isn't enough to have knowledge if a man doesn't know how to apply it. A man can understand engine structure but never build one, never crank it, and never drive. He can design buildings but not construct one.
Knowledge without wisdom leaves a man woefully ignorant. Revelation of application is needed, and revelation comes only by MY SPIRIT. When MY SPIRIT comes upon a man or woman, then understanding is gained and (also) light (shines) upon the proper use of his or her knowledge. I sent Him (the Spirit) to earth to give men's knowledge and understanding a greater force, (to cause them to gain) MY WISDOM, and PERSPECTIVE. For this is the heart of wisdom, seeing what I see. There is no other wisdom available. Believing or unbelieving, (whether) in the LIGHT or in the dark, (and) to know and understand and BE WISE is to see like me.
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12)
(Are) death or ignorance. Physical death, yes, but also the process of death which leaves a man ignorant of TRUTH. TRUTH comes only from me. I AM TRUTH.
“And He said to her, Daughter, your faith (your confidence and trust in Me) has made you well! Go (enter) into peace (untroubled, undisturbed well-being).” (Lk 8:48 AMPC)
The woman with the issue of blood first gained knowledge there was a man who healed the sick. She dwelt upon it and gained understanding she could be well if she came into contact with him. She began to believe she no longer needed to suffer, and if she acted in faith, her desires would come true. She placed her trust in my deliverance because man had failed her. Wisdom was applied to seek out the Man of God and touch the hem of His garment. Others had touched His garment with no effect. This is stated clearly. It was her having wisdom to go and believe that drew anointing from Him. (Mk 5:25-34)
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face … THEN ...” (2Ch 7:14)
What brings breakthrough? Humility in prayer, but also revelation. Why does one man believe the prophecies, and another doubt them? The man who believes is like the widow, the unbelieving man, like those crowding at Jesus sides.
"You see the people thronging you and you ask who touched me?" (Mk 5:31)
No revelation is obtained. Just knowledge.
“Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?” (Matthew 13:55-56)
(The people said these things), and based on their lack of revelation, “He could there do no mighty work.” (Mk 6:5) They knew OF HIM but had no revelation who He is as God, as born of a virgin, as the Lamb of sacrifice, as filled with the Holy Spirit. This lack (of revelation) is why for hundreds of years the religious leaders continued performing sacrifices without PRESENCE. They had the Law in their minds but not the TRUTH of it in their hearts. (Pr 3:3)
It isn't any different from a man memorizing the manual but never applying its techniques. You yourself remarked it is not memorization of verses that changes a man. [From Suzanne: I said this after seeing a social media post encouraging people to memorize lengthy passages.] You did not memorize them for repetition. You placed them in your heart. You heard the Spirit speak them, and thus their power changed you. In this way, you KEPT your heart full of ABUNDANT LIFE, and now out of it, this LIFE flows freely.
Did not Paul tell his son, Timothy, to "stir up" the gift? (2Ti 1:6) Had Timothy forgotten what he knew? No. Then what did he mean? Timothy HAD knowledge. He remembered the laying on of hands and the words spoken as a man remembers a recipe, but Timothy had to seek revelation, a fresh wind of the Spirit that gave him MY PERSPECTIVE once more. It is when a man sees as I see that changes him, that empowers him to believe and act on that belief. Belief in TRUTH. Many men believe in falseness. One can believe the sky is not blue but some other shade, all the while staring at its blueness.
REVELATION CHANGES THE STORY OF JESUS FROM A FABLE TO A REALITY. It is what makes Him real and alive and applicable to today. He becomes Healer, Savior, Son of God, and not just a story a group of men believe who go to church on Sunday. Anyone can repeat the story of Jesus' birth, but do they believe it? Is He real to them? Is He the baby in the manger, or did He grow into a man who died for the sins of the world?
It is what you seek for that you will find. (Deu 4:29; Mt 7:7) Seek for TRUTH and you will find it. Seek for WORDS OF LIFE and gain them in abundance. Seek revelation and gain the power of that revelation. Seek Christ and gain the power of Christ. Gain revelation of what Christ is and what He isn't, of how a man or woman of faith acts and responds to accurate belief. Of how-to be an image of God and an imitator of Him. (Ge 1:27;1Cor 11:1 GW) All these require seeing MY WILL for you and embracing it.
There are two types of sinners. One sins willfully, having the revelation and ignoring it. This can lead to danger and a willful mishandling of the Son of God and the Spirit of God. There is also the ignorant man who sins because He has no knowledge, no understanding, no revelation, but what he sees and thereby what choices he makes are done from lack of TRUTH. You are either hot or cold in these two things. You follow Christ and seek greater wisdom, or you thumb your nose at it and decide you can save yourself. I would that all would seek me and find me and repent of their ways.
You can't undo revelation. There is only willful disobedience of it.
“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant ...” (1 Corinthians 10:1)
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at …” (Acts 17:30)
"For I would not have you ignorant..." Of what? What did the apostle mean here? He would not have them without revelation.
Revelation is what causes a man to grow, to mature in Christ and not remain a babe. Think of a child learning to write. He can learn how to make the letters well but not be able to read them. He can write without understanding of sentence structure. It is as he receives revelation that he grows and leaves his youthful ignorance.
A man who chooses ignorance is ignorant indeed.
God expects man to grow up. He will indulge ignorance and lack of revelation for a time, but there comes a moment when the man is turning his back on revelation and focusing his gaze elsewhere, and God is sorrowful and displeased then. He desires all men to KNOW HIM. There is not one man, not one anywhere, who has come close, seen His goodness, and not hungered for more. The hungry SOUL He will fill. The deceitful soul He will turn away for He knows all men's motives.
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:1-3)
What did John speak of here? Revelation. "What we have seen, we REVEAL to you." Why? That there may be FELLOWSHIP. Likeminded individuals, solely, have fellowship.
Read verses 5 through 7.
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7)
LIGHT cannot FELLOWSHIP with darkness. In order to FELLOWSHIP with the Savior, you must receive revelation of Him as LIGHT and walk in His LIGHT. If you say you know Him, but your actions show clearly you are in darkness, actions like deception or slander or theft or abusing of men, then you have no fellowship. What you say, what you do, shows whose child you are.
The Father would (that) all would come to repentance and full knowledge and revelation of the TRUTH so that He can fellowship with His people and share of His abundance, His peace, His joy. Darkness keeps men from it even within the church. A man can come into a building and never know Christ at all. He can repeat a prayer and believe He has salvation without one single revelation of the POWER that entails.
I DID NOT DIE SO THAT MEN COULD CONTINUE LIVING BY THEIR OWN STANDARDS. I did not redeem so that they would continue in their sins. I did not mediate between the earth and the Father to close the gap made by the first Adam, then sit on my throne and allow men to continue as they were. No, no, and NO! IT WAS TO BRING CHANGE TO THEM and make them into NEW CREATIONS. NEW and EVERY WHIT WHOLE with the MIND OF CHRIST and the WISDOM OF CHRIST, which is the Holy Spirit. He brings all things to your remembrance because all things LIVE IN HIM. It is not that He recalls them. HE IS THEIR SOURCE. Limit His work in you and you limit your revelation because it comes no other WAY.
I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. (Jn 14:6) Holy Spirit and I are one, united entirely, with the Father. There is no separating us. We are simultaneous, perfect and entire. (Jas 1:4) If I am the WAY, then He is the WAY, and the Father is the WAY. I died and the Father, who cannot die, restored me because we are one. It could happen no other way. The Spirit revived me because He is united with me in perfect fellowship. Did men think, do they believe, there was any other option? I would die and stay dead? I said many times I did the WILL OF THE FATHER that I spoke HIS WORDS. Although the body did die and was crucified and I took all the pains of your sin, my spirit was made alive, new, in Resurrection because the Father willed it, because the Spirit is greater than any other power.
There is no power anywhere, formed by man, greater than Him. The greatest most destructive nuclear bomb is not greater. The damage caused at Iwo Jima is not greater. Those are physical powers. His spiritual power is higher and more complete, and He will not EVER be overcome but holds Himself continually in restraint. His is humility and control like none else. Now pour such power into love for men and what is the result? Salvation, healing. He heals because He desires it. He brings joy because that is what His power wills to do. Slander Him and He will turn aside and leave you there. He is sensitive to motive, but forgiving in repentance, and of unending delight when you have revelation of Him.
Without revelation, men will die believing they know what they do not. Choose LIFE and in choosing choose knowledge and in knowing gain understanding and then understand what revelation is. (Deu 30:19) Turn THE LIGHT on within you and be changed completely into a man with the power of the Resurrection revealed in him.
