Knowledge—A Liberating Force!
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered
One major reason some Christians aren’t living to their full potentials and enjoying their inheritance in Christ is the ignorance of God’s Word. Ignorance of the Word will short-circuit the power of God in your life, since you can’t have faith in what you don’t know. For you to express your faith effectively there has to be knowledge, for faith comes to you in the Word (Romans 10:17).
The only thing standing between some Christians and the transcendent life to which they’ve been called is their ignorance of God’s Word, not sin or the devil. Jesus dealt with the problem of sin and defeated the devil. Many therefore are victims of ignorance, not sin or Satan. They suffer, are defeated, sick, broke and poor because of their lack of knowledge; their lack of understanding of the new creation life. They’ve never been taught that there’s a higher life in Christ.
That’s why we’re grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to bring you God’s Word every day, through the Rhapsody Of Realities devotional, our other books and tapes, and our teaching programmes on TV and through the internet. Accurate and adequate knowledge of God’s Word will build your faith and catapult you to a higher level of operation in the spirit.
Never be too busy to study the Scriptures or attend Church regularly. The Church is the place God has ordained for His children to learn and be built up in the Word. Having been born again God has brought you into the glorious life, but ignorance can keep you from enjoying that life. The quality of life you live is directly related to the revelation of God’s Word in your spirit.
The enemy may take advantage of a man’s ignorance and keep him in bondage, but the moment the knowledge of God’s Word dawns on that man’s spirit, he’ll walk out of bondage: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). The knowledge of God’s Word liberates you to live to your fullest potentials in life.
my heart is open to receive your Word gladly and with faith today, as I study the scriptures, and listen to your Word. My spirit is flooded with light, and my whole being is inundated with your truth which causes me to surmount every adversity and live triumphantly,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
