I will be the first to admit that I don’t know everything about the Bible. Even though I have read it, there are parts of it that just escape my knowledge and understanding.
However I recognize there are many more people that know less than I do. I have made it a lifetime priority to study God’s word and live accordingly.
Many others have loosely dabbled with the Word and are living accordingly. Some do not know anything about God or only know some very basic things like the crucifixion.
As a result I can get blank stares from people when I speak of the spiritual.
Matt 22:29 You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
I recall several years ago sitting with a family as a psychologist was talking to them. One of the girls in the family was having some problems.
The psychologist asked my opinion.
I told her that this family was under a generational curse that included some demonic activity.
You can guess how that went over. I got a blank stare from the psychologist and I’m sure she would have liked to recommend a psychiatrist for me.
She did not understand the scripture and the power of God.
It’s time for the church to stop thinking in the physical and begin thinking in the spiritual. There is much more to life than what is merely seen and heard.
Abba, Your word is strength and power. It is understanding and life. It is hope. Increase my knowledge and understanding that I may rightly teach others. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
