The “that’s right” meter is broken; only glorified Jesus can fix the meter, the discernment by the Spirit of the Lord he prays the Father to send DOWN, that raises us UP to HIMSELF spirit and soul (heart, mind, will), come down from heaven out of God making our body a temple of God where the Holy Spirit dwells so we can glorify God in our body: our spiritual worship; giving our entire spirit and soul and body to Christ Jesus and he gives us every good endowment and every perfect gift (James 1:17-18) and every spiritual gift (1 Corinthians 12:4-31) according to the plan and purpose God our Father has for each.
The spiritual gifts include discernment; sorely needed right now. If you discern a body of believers is allowing a mixture of spirits, PRAY and INTERCEDE for them. No one but Jesus is PERFECT and HOLY. ” Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.” We bring all imperfections to Jesus and he gives us HIS SPIRIT so we surrender the old, receive the new, yielding to be led by Holy Spirit and fire in the Vine of Christ, the pillar of glory light and fire light from heaven to earth, the veil torn, so IN CHRIST SPIRIT we are the new creation. Apart from Christ of God we can do nothing; so come to Christ, yoke, learn, find rest, and let God work in you…without grumbling, questioning; that you may be blameless, innocent, spotless (Philippians 2:12-18).
“There are a variety of gifts but the same Spirit; varieties of service but the same Lord; and there are VARIETIES OF WORKING but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. To each is given the MANIFESTATION of the Spirit for the common good.”
If you despise the manifestation in another, you harm our common good.
Given through the Spirit are the gifts of:
- utterance of wisdom
- utterance of knowledge
- gifts of healing
- working of miracles
- ability to distinguish between the spirits: discernment
- various kinds of tongues
- interpretation of tongues
“ALL these are inspired by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills. For just as the body is one with many members, all the members of the body, are one body, so it is with Christ. For by one Spirit we are baptized into one body…all are made to drink of one Spirit” 1 Cor 12:11-13
“There is one body and one Spirit…one God and Father who is ABOVE ALL and through all and in all” Ephesians 4:3-10
“Take the River” Revelation 22:1-17
“The law was our custodian UNTIL Christ came, who justifies us by faith. But now that faith has come, we are NO LONGER UNDER A CUSTODIAN; for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you are baptized INTO CHRIST put on Christ” Galatians 3:23-29
I think there are many who believe their “label” of Christianity and do not know God through knowing Christ; born again OF GOD by water AND Spirit. The Spirit of the Lord comes upon believers, to conquer unbelief in some, others out of their faith, and any other way our Sovereign God Almighty chooses to perform His plans and purposes, which may differ from your particular body of believers, especially if you have not received the Sevenfold Spirit, therefore not yet born again OF GOD, and are trying to put others under the law when our Father through Jesus the Christ put his body under GRACE, writing God’s laws of the Spirit of life, the teachings and sayings of Jesus on our heart and mind BY THE SPIRIT to be led by the Spirit of God through yielding as sons and growing in grace and peace in Christ, maturing as brides: see and receive of the King of kings and Lord of lords; one blood with the Lamb; the same blood as our Father, the same River of water of life from the Throne of God and his Christ, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, draws us up to Himself to be seated in heavenly places with Him when we CONQUER unbelief.
Too many people take a “label” instead of personally receiving the Spirit of Christ; go around criticizing and grumbling and questioning and murmuring against others they can only understand by being born anew from Above by the water AND Spirit.
Have people been lulled back to sleep by religion and teaching of pastors who have not been born again of God, just taught in seminary what their “label” pastors taught them; despising prophesy, quenching the Spirit, denying gifts of the Spirit, denying Jesus’ own Words to the religious, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God…Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water AND THE SPIRIT, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh (teaching flesh), and that which is BORN OF THE SPIRIT is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, “You MUST be born anew” John 3:3-8.
It is LIKE the wind: YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT; you have to YIELD TO IT and be LED by the Holy Spirit.
