The Benefits of Meditation on the Word

 

Meditation on God’s Word is one of the most important

guidelines I could give you for unlocking divine

mysteries through praying in the Holy Ghost. For more

than a quarter of a century, I have endeavored to pray

in tongues just as much as possible in my own walk

with the Lord, and I have reaped rich rewards. And

some of the greatest benefits I’ve experienced have

come from meditating on the Word as I pray.

What is meditation? Meditation is the process of

assimilating God’s Word into your soul and spirit. As

you meditate on the Word of God, the Holy Spirit takes

God’s counsel in the form of the Word and reconstructs

it in your spirit in such a way that it becomes your

insight, wisdom, and counsel.

Meditation can take you from simply acknowledging

that God’s Word is true to having the Word en-grafted

into your spirit. In other words, the Word not only

becomes a part of you, but as it becomes implanted in

your heart, you become a part of it!

Meditation on the Word And Praying in Tongues

 

____________________________________________

I gave you some practical guidelines about what to do if

you only have three hours to spend with the Lord. But

that doesn’t negate the fact that the more you pray in

tongues, the more clear and definite the divine channel

becomes through which God communicates with you.

It is to your eternal benefit that you pray much in the

Holy Ghost, building yourself up on your most holy

faith.

As you pray in tongues, the Teacher of your new nature

uses the supernatural language He brought all the way

from Heaven to begin an illumination process inside of

you. Within that language resides not only the

mysteries of God’s plan for your life, but the

understanding of all Scripture.

Biblia

Therefore, the Holy Spirit lives in hope of the day that

you’ll give yourself over to the meditation of God’s

Word. When you do, you make His ministry of

illumination so much simpler.

I consider it to be a blessing that my mind is unfruitful

while I spend three or four hours praying in tongues.

Why? Because I’ve learned to employ my mind with

God’s Word while my spirit is praying. It has become

automatic for me: When I sit down to pray in tongues, I

pickup my Bible and start reading.

Teenager holding a bible

My favorite practice is to take a book like Galatians,

Ephesians, or Philippians and just read that book over

and over again while I pray in tongues for hours. Often

I sit in a chair or lie on the floor and pray an hour or

two. Then I set my open Bible in a convenient place and

start walking around the room praying.

I pray for a while, my spirit listening in case the Holy

Spirit says something through that channel of

communication. Then I go back to the Bible and read

the entire book through again,still praying in tongues.

I’m glad that my mind and my spirit can receive from

God at the same time. The Holy Spirit takes all the

accumulated knowledge that I’ve deposited into my

mind through reading something in the Bible over and

over, and He uses it for the day-and-night meditation

process.This is where much of the revelation

knowledge I receive originates.

Meditating on the Word In the Early Church

 

_________________________________________

Meditating on the Word while praying isn’t something

new or unique to me. Think back to the early apostles.

In Acts 2, the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit

on the Day of Pentecost. Then in Acts 6, they faced a

problem regarding the fair administration of food

among the believers.

The apostles said, “Look, it isn’t right that we are

distracted from the Word of God to serve tables. Let’s

appoint some men who are highly esteemed among you

for this job so that we may give ourselves continually to

the Word of God and to prayer” (Acts 6:2-4).

Now, what part of the Word did the apostles give

themselves to? All of the Old Testament promises.

Remember, that’s all the Word they had at that time.

They couldn’t open a Bible and have the entire

foundation of the Church laid out before them on their

lap like you can!

So the apostles gave themselves continually to all the

Old Testament promises while at the same time giving

themselves to prayer. What kind of prayer would the

apostles be talking about? Well, what experience was

freshest in their minds? They had just received the

promise of the Father — the baptism in the Holy Ghost

with the evidence of speaking in tongues. So they were

praying in that new language the Holy Spirit had given

them!

The apostles prayed in tongues continually while

meditating on the promises of the Old Covenant. This

practice helped establish the foundation of the Church,

because God was able to bring forth the mysteries of

Christ.

We can also see the principle of meditating on the Word

while praying in the Spirit in the life of the Apostle

Paul. Remember, except for Jesus, Paul received more

revelation knowledge than any other man since Moses.

holyspirit

We already know one of his keys to receiving that

revelation knowledge: After he was filled with the Holy

Ghost, he made the statement that he prayed in tongues

more than anyone (1Cor. 14:18). But meditation on

God’s Word was another important key.

You see, Paul said he was a Pharisee, a “Hebrew of

Hebrews” (Phil. 3:5). That means he began to memorize

the Old Testament scriptures for seven hours a day

beginning at the age of three.

I believe that all of the Old Testament scripture stored

inside Paul, combined with his praying in tongues

“more than ye all,” were crucial in enabling Paul to

receive so much revelation knowledge for the

foundation of the Church. That revelation knowledge

brought the Old Covenant together with the New

Covenant.

Biblia

As far as I can ascertain, Paul was the only apostle who

thoroughly understood the relationship between the

Law and our covenant with God through Jesus Christ —

the law of the Spirit of life: For the law of the Spirit of

life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of

sin and death(Rom. 8:2). Today that understanding

seems common place, but in Paul’s day, it was unheard

of. And two keys that enabled Paul to receive such a

depth of revelation knowledge was praying in tongues

and meditating on the Old Testament scriptures.

ACTS 29 TODAY

glory to god

 

I just noticed today that I had started this blog in

January-2013 and so it has been 7 years now of doing

the ACTS 29 TODAY BLOG.

Usually I am much better at starting projects than

finishing them, but with a blog its like there’s no

finishing line, so I just keep writing about spiritual

truth every week.

NOT ME IN THIS PIC

I just want to take this opportunity to share for those

who might be new, or have never heard where the

name of my blog came from…Acts 29 today.

 

After some 20 years of GOING TO CHURCH, I was in a

great time of transitioning from just GOING TO

CHURCH…TO BEING THE CHURCH. As believers we

don’t go to church, because WE ARE THE CHURCH, SO

WE CANT GO TO SOMETHING WE ARE.

church images

It was a very different time and I knew God was

beginning to send me to the nations, but with NO real

help from anyone except the Holy Spirit it was one

small step at a time.

 

I will never forget the day when I was driving home

from somewhere and the Holy Spirit spoke to me very

clearly, and said; LARRY, WHEN YOU GET HOME READ

ACTS 29 … TODAY.

Image result for OLD TOYOTA COROLLA SR5 DRIVING ON THE ROAD

As soon as I got home I went into the house and got my

Bible, opened it up to the book of Acts, and went

straight to chapter 29…WHAT !!! NO CHAPTER 29…LETS

SEE, 28 BUT YUP, THERE WAS NO CHAPTER 29.

Biblia

WOW, well I was greatly disappointed to say the least,

and I ask the Holy Spirit, you did say Acts 29 right? YES

ACTS CHAPTER 29…AH, WELL, IN MY BIBLE ACTS ONLY

HAS 28 CHAPTERS, THERE IS NOT A CHAPTER 29.

 

Then the Holy Spirit spoke this to me, YOU CANT FIND

CHAPTER 29 ….. BECAUSE THAT’S THE CHAPTER YOU

ARE GOING TO WRITE.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Peter, James, John, and Paul, all wrote their chapters,

and now…ITS YOUR TURN…TO WRITE YOURS.

 

WOW, WOW, WOW, ANOTHER AMAZING

CONFORMATION ON MY WAY TO THE CALL OF……………

MANY LANDS AND MANY PEOPLE

 

That experience really stuck with me, and knowing that

it was time to write my chapter was such a

conformation to go to the nations.

Image result for world map old

Of course this was a result of the praying in the Spirit

many hours a day for those 2 years in the truck, as I had

prayed out the perfect plan of God for my life, and now

I was beginning to walk those plans out in the natural

world.

Semi-Truck-Safety

Because the spiritual world has authority over the

natural world, when you pray out the plan of God for

your life in the spirit, at some point the natural world

HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO LINE UP WITH

THE SUPERNATURAL PLAN THAT GOD

HAS FOR YOU.

 

THAT MEANS THE PEOPLE THAT SHOULD NOT BE IN

YOUR LIFE WILL FADE AWAY, THE PEOPLE THAT

SHOULD BE IN YOUR LIFE WILL APPEAR, THE DOORS

THAT WERE ALL CLOSED BEFORE NOW WILL OPEN,

ALL OF THE SUPERNATURAL PROVISION THAT YOU

WILL NEED TO FULFILL YOUR CALL WILL NOW BEGIN

TO MANIFEST (BECOME VISIBLE), AND YOU WILL HAVE

A HARD TIME NOT SEEING THE PLAN OF GOD FOR

YOUR LIFE AS IT UNFOLDS IN FRONT OF YOU….ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO NOW….IS WALK IT OUT.

So that is where the name of my blog came from, and

that was about 25 years ago, and since then I have gone

to many lands and ministered to many people by GODS

ABILITY AND HELP, ALL GLORY TO GOD.

ACTS 29 TODAY

Well happy new year from acts 29 today world headquarters in sunny warm Chiang Mai Thailand.

 

_______________________________________________

 

I Just wanted to share a few things that Came into my Spirit while thinking about 2020, and I know most people equate it to 2020 vision.

Image result for 2020 vision

 

I certainly see that and agree with that also, but another thing I immediately thought about 2020 was that 20+20= 40 and that is a number in the Bible that appears over 150 times.

 

 It is a number of great importance, just some examples

 

Jesus Temptation

Matthew 4:1-3a “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit

into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.  And

after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was

hungry. And the tempter came and said to him.”

Israel’s Testing

Joshua 5:6 “For the people of Israel walked forty

years in the wilderness, until all the nation, the men

of war who came out of Egypt, perished, because

they did not obey the voice of the LORD; the LORD

swore to them that he would not let them see the

land that the LORD had sworn to their fathers to give

to us, a land flowing with milk and honey.”

The Flood of Forty Days and Nights

Genesis 7:12 “And rain fell upon the earth forty days

and forty nights.”

 

Image result for noah flood

 

  • Forty stripes was the maximum number allowed for anyone to be punished (Duet 25:3).

  • The prophet Jonah prophesied of the impending destruction of Nineveh if they didn’t repent and gave them forty days to do so and they eventually did repent and the entire city-state was sparred.

  • Moses sent spies into the Promised Land and they were there for forty days and forty nights before returning to give their report about the land (Numbers 13:25, 14:34).

  • The prophet Elijah went forty days and nights without food or water while on Mount Horeb.

  • Jesus appeared for forty days after His resurrection from the dead and the disciples and many others witnessed His appearance.

  • When Israel disobeyed God, He gave them over to their enemies for forty years (Judges 13:1).

  • King Saul reigned over Israel for forty years (Acts 13:21) as did David (2 Samuel 5:4, 1 Kings 2:11) and Solomon (1 Kings 11:42).

  • The holy place of the temple was forty cubits long (1 Kings 6:17).

  • Ezekiel bore the evil of the house of Judah for forty days (Ezk 4:6).

 

 

The one common denominator of all of these events is after the 40 days or years or cubits or lashes, everything CHANGED.

 

40 in the Bible refers to TESTING, TRIALS, OR PROBATION, and then EVERYTHING CHANGES AND MOST OF THE TIME IT WAS DRAMATIC CHANGES.

 

So simple put what I am seeing for 2020 is a time of great change, and in all areas of life all over the world.

Image result for world

The most important one being the Spiritual changes, the dramatic changes that will take place in the Church (GODS PEOPLE, NOT A BUILDING). Just like we won’t even recognize the world around us in 10 years from now because of all of the changes that are, and have, and will take place in those 10 years technology wise.

cities-of-the-future

The true Church (we are the Church not a building) is going to shake off the dust of man made doctrines, doctrines of dEVILS, and all of the man junk that has made its way into the Church of today, (while they were sleeping the enemy came in and sowed the tares).

Image result for while they were sleeping the enemy sowed tares

The true Church is waking up even now and even tho there is a great apostasy going on and all of the fake Christians are falling away from the true Christ, the remnant will STAND, SHINE BRIGHTER, AND NEVER LOSE THE FAITH.
