Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 96 Spiritual sensitivity

We know that God is Spirit, and those who worship God must do so in spirit and truth. We are also are to be led by the Spirit. How can our spiritual sensitivity be increased so that we can be sure we are truly knowing God in the spirit? It seems at times that so much comes at us that brings confusion so we hardly know which way to turn. How do we know that we are really sensing God in the spirit? Are there some basic principles that can help us? This arises not only in our daily lives, but also in spiritual gifts, ministry, and host of related areas. I believe that there are some guidelines in scripture that can help us.

  • God is Spirit
  • Man is body, soul, and spirit (I Thes. 5:23)
  • Man connects with God in his spirit (I Cor. 2:10-12, 6:17)
  • Three possible sources of spiritual movement (God, Satan, man)
  • Significant areas to consider
    • Seeking God only by our mind (reasoning)
    • A defiled spirit (2 Cor. 7:1)
    • A motive to be somebody “special” in spirituals (Phil. 2:3)
    • A troubled heart, unrest (Isaiah 30:15)
    • Undisciplined desires (James 1:14,15)
    • Undisciplined emotions (2 Peter 1:5-9)
  • Consider the outcome of the leading
    • The Spirit leads in the purpose of God
    • The Spirit leads in unity (with God and one another)
    • The Spirit exalts Jesus Christ
    • The Spirit is the Spirit of truth
    • The Spirit is the Spirit of love
  • Praying in the Spirit (Jude 20)
