For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly : if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. From a New Covenant perspective, a teacher is someone anointed to search, do detailed research, learn subjects in-depth, and discover truth way beyond what others are willing to do. This gifting has been defined as that of a spiritual detective.
Those of you who have taken spiritual gifting tests probably know this. One cannot teach what one does not know. Real teachers learn the hard way. I have spent decades in much research and study. Because of that I have learned many things thoroughly backed up by Scripture that many are not aware of and which may even appear foreign at first. Whatever the case, no one knows anything until they know it and this requires learning it somehow or another.
We must allow the Lord to be the arbiter. Many Christians, however, allow their leaders to be the arbiter of what they know, should know, or be allowed to know, and they thus reject the possibility of greater truth, which keeps them ignorant, which keeps them controlled.
The Lord said the following for a very good reason:. Sometimes Christians are unaware of greater truth because they have a different spiritual gift and are predominantly involved in another form of spiritual work. This is as it should be. The Lord eventually raises up mature specialists in their respective fields.
Then He attempts to bring them together in community so we can all learn from one another and work together as a team. This is what the Lord actually created in the beginning. The Lord did not call a mere few into His work—He called every single one of His children into His work. The enemy always has a field day under such conditions. Unreal Christianity is not good. It has no salt. It has no light. It possesses no real faith or spiritual love and gives little hope. It gives aid and comfort to the enemy. We must have the real thing. Every real Christian knows that when one becomes a real Christian he burns his bridges behind him and never looks back.
Some are willing to go forward a ways but tend to go wobbly and opt out when the level of discomfort or false insecurity arises. Some make excuses on why they cannot follow the Lord past a certain point. Some have an ongoing difficulty in crucifying their flesh. Some get stuck in masquerades. One of the issues the Lord presented me with in the very beginning when I received this revelation eight years ago was that there were false revivals already happening at that time and that these would continue.
He told me there would be false awakenings. This has certainly happened and there will be more. Watch out for the counterfeits. When one studies the prior Great Awakenings in America one discovers that there were always those who wanted to co-opt the process for their own purposes. Regarding that particular scenario, always know that the Lord Jesus must be in charge. Real Great Awakenings are impossible without Him.

Be Blessed Today! I added a link at the end of my post to your post today referencing the article by Veronika West. Like Liked by 1 person. And the peace makers could not prevail. Hopefully many of us are maturing at the rate we should. And continue to be humbled in mighty ways. The Lord will have His people and His way. There is no room for the know it all. Thanks Al. Great comment. The Lord has made us all different with different talents, gifts, and specific work to do.
Also, real Christians are strong and motivated. In major league team sports the players have to figure out a way to work together.
They must get along. If they have the talent and the drive and work together they win. I have a construction background. We all know there are many specialty trades. We are taught by the Lord to love first and be humble but when we fail we are also taught to be understanding, forgiving, and merciful. But we must never sacrifice our great spiritual strength, initiative, and ambition. It is the Lord who is creating His worldwide Community. In my opinion, creating the universe was probably a lot easier. But He will get it done. We will learn and are learning. We all have so much to offer. So we do the best we can.
The next day we try to do better. Like Liked by 2 people. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle. The LORD performs righteous deeds and judgments for all who are oppressed. May you be mightily blessed by this re-blog…. Thanks Richard. I greatly appreciate you doing this and am looking forward to your next post. So much has transpired in the last seven to eight years!
We are now beginning to see the fruit of much spiritual work. Incidentally, my blog had its 7th anniversary this past May 10th. It was 8 years ago in late August when I heard the revelation about the Great Awakening. Also, I should have been more clear when I first posted the above article yesterday, but the book I completed in April of is my second book. I have since edited the first paragraph of this article to reflect this. I wrote my first book Real Christianity in the s and published it in early I published the Real Christianity E-Book in early Thank you for your steadfastness.
I, too, believe that there is a stirring in America, and all around the world. America is NOT the leader in this return to the worship of God, although she should be! We have become lazy and complacent, we who have more access to the Word of God than anyone else in the history of the world. We need to be shaken up, stirred, roused to action. Thank you Linda, my good friend.
The price of complacency and apathy is much larger than Christians think and the bill often comes due when least expected. If people only knew all the great evil lurking behind the scenes and the sinister plans of the enemy to destroy real Christianity they would be much more vigilant. Blessings to you in all your life and work. Thank you. Agree completely. The forces behind the scenes are becoming much more bold.
