The Scriptures tell us that the Spirit of Truth is promised as our heritage to guide us into all truth and to show us things to come.
"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you". - John 16:13-15
The deep things of God are known only to Him, but are revealed to us through His Spirit. That is the promise of 1 Corinthians 2. Therefore, it is our expectation to witness an unprecedented outpouring of His Spirit and unfolding last day mysteries that will perfect the Bride and empower the Sons of the Kingdom.
Mere human knowledge is not sufficient to bring in the great harvest. We must be endowed with God's supernatural provision that is clearly promised for this hour. To do so, every saint of God must come to the realization that Christ is "all in all."
He is Light; He is the Way, Truth, Life; He is the Resurrection; He is Wisdom; He is Righteousness; He is Goodness; He is Understanding; He is Alpha and Omega; He is the Beginning and the End; He is All in All.
To merely acknowledge these as doctrinal truth is not sufficient. They must become experiential reality through personal encounters with the Living Christ. The Lord is standing at the door knocking with a personal invitation for profound fellowship and the unveiling of latter rain revelation. For those who will forsake all else to dine with Him, this will be an age of greater glory and personal transformation into His very image.
SOARING WITH HIM
Indisputably, our great desire is to soar in the Spirit and obtain revelations of God's nature, power, strategy, and insight. However, to best accommodate this great privilege, we must be firmly "rooted and grounded" in Him. We must "Go deep in order to go high!"
WE MUST BE:
1. Rooted and grounded in love (Ephesians 3:17).
2. Rooted and grounded in faith (Understanding Christ's finished work, who we are in Christ and our inheritance in Christ.)
3. Rooted and grounded in truth (Understanding God's Purpose for our life - our CALLING in Christ.)
The more firmly we are grounded, the more capable we become to penetrate Heaven by the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation and embrace insight with understanding.
The pursuit of truth will lead us to places in the Spirit yielding the fruit of righteousness and power. The quest for knowledge without truth can result in pride and arrogance.
A clear distinction between the two is essential for personal transformation and maturity. When we cultivate a love for truth, we will not be turned over to deluding influences that will characterize those who have rejected Christ in the last days (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11).
IN THE SPIRIT
Presently, many Believers are oppressed with feelings of hopelessness, fear, doubt, and other bondages which the enemy exploits. The Holy Spirit will carry Believers above this realm (for those who choose to "walk in the Spirit"), where our blessings and provisions are discovered in Christ.
In this higher realm, we embrace hope to displace hopelessness, and fear is overcome by faith.
This truth is evidenced in both the Old and New Testaments. On one occasion, the prophet Elisha boldly encountered the armies of the king of Aram without timidity or reservation. Conversely, his servant was battling issues of fear and doubt. That is, until he was carried above that realm to discover the more accurate spiritual perspective. God's governmental leader helped his servant above the soulish realm of anxiety and uncertainty by saying:
"'Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.' Then Elisha prayed and said, 'O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.' And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha" - 2 Kings 6:16-17.
RECEIVING THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION
When the prophet prayed for his servant, the impartation of the anointing allowed the servant access to the realm of faith and supernatural vision. As a result, he was changed and his perspective radically transformed. The limited view this servant previously held is the only one his adversary, the devil, wanted him to comprehend.
Likewise, the enemy desires that we see only the seemingly insurmountable obstacles and difficulties that stand between us and our DESTINY. Therefore, when we walk by the Spirit, we will receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation to advance us in our CALLING (GOD'S PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE).
In Elisha's servant, the above experience radically affected his life – his eyes were opened and he saw. In a similar way, the Holy Spirit desires that we carry this anointing that opens eyes and distinguishes between the deceptions of our adversary and the provision of our Redeemer.
Experientially comprehending our Source unleashes supernatural faith to live above this worldly realm and access the heavenly dimension.
