The Teacher and the Relationship

I am so thankful that you do not need a degree from some college to study, to learn, and even to teach from his word. Now, probably most would not give you much credit or recognition if your were to teach the word, but no were in God’s word does it say that you have to go to school or have a degree from a Bible College to be able to teach. It is only man’s understanding and acceptance that says that you need to have such. Being that the Holy Spirit is THE TEACHER, our first place should be to go to Him to learn. Certainly, the Holy Spirit can and does teach from men, but first, we must be learning from the Spirit and His word personally. If you talk about a “personal relationship with God”, how can you have one if you’re not spending time with Him through His Spirit teaching you personally? The bottom line is that you can’t. No time spent personally, equals NO relationship. It’s pretty basic, pretty simple. Oh you might have what you think is a relationship, built on “head knowledge”, but there is no intimacy involved. It’s like the guy that knows that he needs to have a relationship with his wife, so he signs up to take classes how to have a relationship with his wife. But, he never spends time with her to develop that relationship. All he has is a “head knowledge” as to how it’s done. But, he never spends time with the one that he wants to have a relationship with. Ah duh.

A few years ago, when I went back into my calling after traveling abroad, the Lord led me to hundreds of young guys in their twenties who God was calling and to whom he was speaking. Some of which, had not even yet been saved, and the things that were being said out of their mouth would blow most christians out of the water. Because of the shortness of time, God is preparing young people at rapid speed. They are being “downloaded” upon by the Holy Spirit. They are prophesying, they are doing the works of God by His Spirit. (see my post https://rjperalta.wordpress.com/2007/01/16/gods-army/

Even yet today, I am finding men and women in their twenties that are speaking spiritual things that if one is not totally filled and led by His Spirit, they will not even have a clue as to what is being said. It takes Spirit to receive Spirit. In other words, you and I have to be filled and operating in the Spirit at the moment, to be able to receive one that is coming and is going to be downloading upon you. If not, we will dismiss it, or not even get it, or even stand there with a blank look on our face.

The bottom line is that the Holy Spirit is moving out there, and its big time. So, if you are unaware of it, then you need to get on board with the Spirit. We don’t want to be apart of the many who will not see it, or will dismiss it as “not of God”. This is, and is going to be “God outside of the box”. It’s been happening out there, and will continue with “Revival” such as the world has never known. A “Street Revival” that was prophesied years ago by a brother who now lives in New Zealand is coming to pass. Are you preparing? Are you ready? Hurry, the Boat is soon to be leaving.

    I met a homeless 25 year old a month ago. I have little else to say except that he is hearing the Spirit as I began hearing the Spirit 18 months ago. I hang out at three different assemblies because each of them has something special about them, yet none of them seem complete.

    This kid is receiving the word – the most important part of the word that can be heard. Love. Sacrifice. Sharing. He and I are of like hearts and and there is no mistake that he and I met. I have been buried in the bible for 18 months. I read everything from Platt to Claiborne for what I believe to be the very basic, raw love that Christ spent His time on earth teaching us about.

    This kid gets it in a way that took me much longer to understand. Praise God.

    Like you, I do believe God is not in the box format in which we place Him based upon understanding of the bible. I konw what has happened in my life and I am hearing the same form the 25 year old. I am so glad to see this post and know that what God is revealing to me is not JUST happening my my circle, but globally.

    Love your stuff in the blog!

    Doug,
    Thanks for stopping by. Blessed that you have been blessed into being in the Spirit. Few have found and understand the way of the Spirit. However, more and more young people are being trained by the Holy Spirit for the now and of what is to come. Blessed be the Lord of Lord’s!
