Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
3 January 2007
Galatians 3: 7: “Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.”
Galatians 3: 14: “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
“They which are of faith.” “That we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Faith in what? Man-made churches; the traditions and rituals of men? Bible verse memorization (which if not applied in faith is idolatry--I call it Bible Verse Idolatry)? If you have memorized the whole Bible (the Word of Truth or Scriptures--it is NOT the Word of God) and reject Christ (the Word of God), you have nothing. I love reading the Scriptures because it is inspired by the Holy Ghost, but I am always immersed in the Word of God (Christ) through revelation through faith. It is impossible for me to have the Bible always before my eyes, but the Word of God is always with me--when I am working, sitting, sleeping--it is called COMMUNION. It is not faith in what, but faith in God. Reading the Bible really does not require faith: all I need is a brain and two eyes and the ability to turn the pages. When you read the Bible believing that the Lord will teach you the Scriptures, well then that is a horse of a different color. The Lord is first, then the Bible. We worship Him in spirit and in truth.
How did Adam operate before The Fall? He did not have the Bible, but he did have unbroken communion with the Father which means he operated in the power of the Holy Ghost. He didn’t try to figure out God’s will for his life by examining Scriptures and using his intellect. Adam was connected directly to God by faith/revelation/obedience. Adam was a spiritual man, and if we continue to die to self, we will also become spiritual men that God can use for His purposes and for His glory.
