Are You A Fool?

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Wisdom means far more than just knowing a lot. A know it all is a person who has a dogmatic opinion about everything, is closed to anything new, resents discipline, and refuses to learn.

The Lord is the only one who does know it all. The foundation of knowledge is to fear the Lord- to honor and respect God, to live in aw of His power, and to obey His Word!

Did You Check That Spirit?

1 John 4:1 Beloved believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

You know the saying, “don’t believe everything you hear”! Well that applied to this Scripture. No matter who it is or the title they possess, always test theit spirit! Ones words must match what God says , they must be committed to the body of believers, their lifestyle should be of that of God …Do they speak of Jesus and Him being fully man and fully God?

We can all pretend to be something that we are not only to be exposed later…..

Meek And Quiet Spirit

1 Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of  (a meek and quiet spirit) which is in the sight of God of great price(precious to God).

Meek- quiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive

This Scripture was concerning Peter instructing the Christian wives to develop inner beauty rather than being over concerned with their outward appearance. Your inner Spirit of Godliness speaks loud and clear and is the most effective way to influence those around you…consistently !

Spirit Of Fear

2 Timothy 1:7- For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

This Scripture lets us know that first of all fear is a spirit! And second that God did not give it to us. When we come into the revelation of this truth, we can cast fear out in the name of Jesus because we believe and know that it is not of Him according to His Word and that it may be present in our lives but it has to go. When you are feeling fearful of anything, it is letting you know that, that spirit is present around you even though you can not see it.

Pray that spirit away (cast it out) in the Name of Jesus!
