By The Holy Spirit’s Direction

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 11:

2 You need to know that God’s passion is burning inside me for you, because, like a loving father, I have pledged your hand in marriage to Christ, your true bridegroom. I’ve also promised that I would present his fiancée to Him as a pure virgin bride. 3 But now I’m afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s clever lies, your thoughts may be corrupted and you may lose your single-hearted devotion and pure Love for Christ. 4 For you seem to gladly tolerate anyone who comes to you preaching a pseudo-Jesus, not the Jesus we have preached. You have accepted a spirit and gospel that is false, rather than the Spirit and gospel you once embraced. How tolerant you have become of these imposters!

We must protect our minds from a “watered down” gospel that compromises FATHER’S Divine Intent.  Mature believers will sift out such compromise and not be led astray by the soulish intent of those who seek to exalt themselves in the eyes of many.  My desire is that each of us grow up into full maturity so that we are led by The Holy Spirit in all matters.

As I give up the soulish intentions to “make things happen”, The Holy Spirit intervenes and brings forth blessing in the various areas of my activities.  Even the mundane tasks are being blessed!  I no longer loathe those tasks but now embrace them for I intend to do every task “unto THE LORD”.  What has changed?  My mindset has.  Wisdom is guiding me more and more each day so that I embrace all aspects of my walk, not just the spectacular or impressive.

Paul uses the word wisdom sixteen times in the first three chapters of 1 Corinthians.  The number of Agape Love is 16 thus Wisdom and Love are fully connected as both have come from FATHER WHO is LOVE.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians chapter 2:

6 However, there is a Wisdom that we continually speak of when we are among the spiritually mature. It’s Wisdom that didn’t originate in this present age, nor did it come from the rulers of this age who are in the process of being dethroned.

Most of us are aware of the “rulers of this age” who are currently attempting to enslave mankind by any means possible.  How do we participate in dethroning them?  By praying that all demonic influence and protection be removed from them.  When the demons depart, men and women come to their senses or else they deteriorate toward death.  Think about it.

7 Instead, we continually speak of this wonderful Wisdom that comes from GOD, hidden before now in a mystery. It is HIS secret plan, destined before the ages, to bring us into glory. 8 None of the rulers of this present world order understood it, for if they had, they never would have crucified the Lord of shining glory.

9 This is why the Scriptures say:

Things never discovered or heard of before,

    things beyond our ability to imagine—

    these are the many things GOD has in store

    for all HIS Lovers.

How exciting it is to have FATHER reveal HIS secret plan for each of us as we walk toward the bright light of HIS Love and Divine Intent.  Let us hold fast to HIS plan and not allow the world to redirect our focus elsewhere.  We must let patience have its perfect work and know that the angels are dispatched on our behalf in all areas of our walk.  They are commissioned to fulfill FATHER’S Divine Intent in our lives… without exception as we walk in Agape Love.

10 But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, HE has revealed to us HIS inmost Heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things. 11 After all, who can really see into a person’s heart and know his hidden impulses except for that person’s spirit? So it is with God. HIS thoughts and secrets are only fully understood by HIS Spirit, the Spirit of God.

How can I be more emphatic concerning praying in The Holy Spirit!  This is critical for those of us who are seeking to come into the fullness of the mysteries being revealed at this hour.  I don’t need another intellectual discussion about theories or hypotheses.  I need to be fully led by The Holy Spirit WHO expresses the Absolute Truth in all areas of my life.

12 For we did not receive the spirit of this world system but the Spirit of God, so that we might come to understand and experience all that grace has lavished upon us. 13 And we articulate these realities with the Words imparted to us by the Spirit and not with the words taught by human wisdom. We join together Spirit-revealed Truths with Spirit-revealed Words. 14 Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of GOD’S Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. 15 Those who live in the Spirit are able to carefully evaluate all things, and they are subject to the scrutiny of no one but GOD. 16 For

Who has ever intimately known the Mind of the Lord Yahweh well enough to become HIS counselor?

Christ has, and we possess Christ’s perceptions.

Now is the time to abandon all soulish habits and fully submit to The Holy Spirit.  This is how lives are changed from glory to glory.  It is no longer “my way or the highway” but however The Holy Spirit leads me, I will proceed no matter what the world says.
