Assimilating the Word Into the Soul

 

Biblia

 

Your soul was created to assimilate. For example, if you

moved to a country where people spoke a language you

didn’t know, you would begin to assimilate that

language just by being in constant contact with its use.

Your entire soul would kick in to cause you to learn that

language automatically. You wouldn’t have to

deliberately sit down with a tape that told you to say

“Thank you” or “How are you” in that language over

and over until you finally memorized it.

In the same way, you can approach God’s Word in such

a manner that your soul — your intellect, will, and

emotions — automatically assimilates it and then

begins the process of transforming you according to its

truth.

Teenager holding a bible

For example, some men in my church who are called to

helps asked me what books of the Bible they should

meditate on in order to excel in their particular calling.

As businessmen, one of their main concerns was that

they could learn to possess money without money

possessing them.

pastors-wife-deacon-church-members

So I told them, “Take the Book of Proverbs and read it

fifty times. Read it deliberately and precisely,

acknowledging what is in each verse. You may not

understand what the verse means, but at least

understand what it says.

Image result for book of proverbs

“If you run across a word you don’t know, look it up in a

dictionary so that the next time you see it, you’ll know

what it means. But don’t do any studies or cross

referencing. Just read the Book of Proverbs fifty times.”

Image result for dictionary

Why did I instruct those men to do that? Because by the

time they read Proverbs at least fifty times, they would

have assimilated the entire book into their soul!

Perhaps there are three verses — one in chapter 2, one

in chapter 5, and one in chapter 9— that will give them

understanding of a verse in chapter 14. But it won’t

come together for them until they’ve read the book fifty

times and assimilated it into their soul.

You see, when you read a book of the Bible over and

over, you set yourself up for day-and-night meditation.

You are feeding your spirit the raw material that the

Holy Ghost needs to illuminate the entire book for you!

Eventually the central theme will be born in you. Then

all satellite verses will be pulled in, along with the

understanding of how they relate to each other.

Biblia

Understanding how verses relate to one another in a

passage of Scripture is an important part of the

meditation process. One of the first things the Lord

taught me regarding meditation was never to take a

verse out of context.

If there is a verse I’m trying to understand, the Holy

Spirit alerts me to find where the subject of the verse

begins and ends and then to read over that passage

many times. In this way,I assist Him in my meditations.

The assimilation process will happen automatically,

even when you go to sleep. For instance, suppose you

read First John one hundred times. (By the way, that’s a

good beginning assignment for offering your soul for

meditation. Anything in you that doesn’t love people

will go to war against that book!) Then suppose that

soon afterward, someone wronged you in someway, and

you made a mountain of forgiveness out of a molehill of

offense.

Image result for sleeping

The mind of God that you assimilated from First John

will help you sort out what is and what is not important

while you sleep. It will magnify the truth you

assimilated regarding God’s love and level that

mountain of forgiveness.

That’s what I mean by day-and-night meditation. The

assimilation process will happen automatically, just as

it does when learning a new language in a country

where everyone speaks that language but you.

Your soul was designed to transform you to whatever

you subject it to the most. If it’s anew language that

everyone is speaking but you, you will automatically

begin to learn it. And if you’re giving yourself to

praying in the Holy Ghost and to the Word — reading it,

speaking it, rolling it over and over in your mind —

then your spirit man will automatically begin to be

illuminated by the revelation knowledge of God’s truth!

Teenager holding a bible

These guidelines I’ve given you for praying in the Spirit

are by no means exhaustive. They are just signposts

pointing the way to a more effective prayer life.

Remember, your key to unlock divine mysteries is

praying in tongues, your destination is God’s perfect

will for your life, and your Helper throughout the

journey is the Holy Spirit living within.

Image result for confessing the word

 

Confession:

The Highest Form of Meditation

God created you and me with a capacity not only to

believe, but to conform to whatever it is that we are

believing and continually subjecting ourselves to THE

MOST. Unfortunately, this ability can operate in us for

the bad as well as for the good.

Teenager holding a bible

hdc62b30060c5c8e537874a643a2006de4

That’s why God gave Joshua this instruction when

Joshua was about to lead the children of Israel into the

Promised Land:

This book of the law SHALL NOT DEPART OUT OF THY

MOUTH; but thou shalt MEDITATE THEREIN DAY AND

NIGHT, that thou mayest observe to do according to all

that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy

way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good

success.— Joshua 1:8

What an incredible set of instructions! First of all, God

said, “Don’t let the Word of God depart out of your

mouth.” That means there should never be a time when

the Word in your mouth is replaced by anything else.

When you let the Word depart from your mouth, you

set yourself in agreement with the circumstances that

are arrayed against you.

66c76-common2bcold

But if you continue to confess the Word, you are

operating in the covenant between you and God against

the adverse circumstance. And as you continually

subject yourself to the Word by confessing it over and

over, you are applying one of the highest forms of

meditation.

Circumstances are no respecters of persons. They will

come at you day and night. But when you stand face to

face with those situations that seem impossible to

overcome and keep confessing God’s promises over and

over, you are meditating day and night. Through

meditation,you are giving the Word of God the

opportunity to transform you and your thinking so you

can actually become that victorious person you are

meant to be.

dag133cdbedd35e1735e7b126552b0481d2--david-and-goliath-king-david

You will eventually conform to what you continually

subject yourself to. That’s why God told Joshua to let

not the Word depart from his mouth and to meditate

day and night; He wanted Joshua to continually be

subjected to the Word.

Paint a Picture of Your Answer

Due to our busy schedules, most of us cannot read,

study, or memorize the Word day and night. But we can

meditate on the Word day and night. Reading, studying,

and memorizing can only assist meditation; they do not

replace it.

You can actually take a journey into a whole new set of

circumstances in your spirit and mind as you meditate

day and night on what God has said about you and your

problem. Soon you won’t be conforming to the problem

anymore. Instead, your faith, your thoughts, and your

attitude will leave the problem behind to embark on a

journey into God where every promise is yea and Amen

(2 Cor. 1:20).

You can find a place in God where your mouth has

described the victory so many times that it has painted

a picture on the inside of your spirit. That picture of

victory becomes so powerful, it replaces anything and

everything that spells defeat.

heroGideon002-large

So whenever you face a problem or are about to charge

ahead to conquer something for the Kingdom of God,

start hearing and reading scriptures that address your

particular problem.Keep on doing that until there is a

huge reservoir of the Word on the inside of you.

Then meditate on those scriptures day and night, saying

them over and over. Roll them over and over in your

mind until the picture the Word paints in your heart

becomes stronger than the picture the obstacle paints

in your mind.

prayer-warrior

Pull the Word up out of your spirit and roll it over and

over in your mind while you are driving, cleaning

house, or working on your job. Whenever you can,

describe your victory out loud.Use your words to paint

pictures of your victory. Then God will do for you what

He promised Joshua: “For then you will make your way

prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

The Role of Meditation In Overcoming My Failure

I can attest to the truth of this vital principle from my

own personal experience. For example, I will never

forget the first time I tried to preach. It was a

Wednesday night service in a small Holiness church in

Oregon. Besides my wife Rosalie, there were only three

or four people present.

 

I was sure I could do it. Many times those same four

people had sat with my wife and me in coffee shops,

talking about Jesus. I would get so carried away

preaching and pounding on the table that I’d almost

spill our coffee!

But now as I stood up in church in front of those same

four people to deliver the Word in an official capacity,

something happened! I guess it was the fear of being

put in a position where I felt as if I had to produce.

Preaching

Even in high school, I’d choose to take a lower grade in

English rather than to give an oral report. The blood

would drain out of my face; I’d turn white and get dizzy

just at the thought of doing it.

Yet here I was, standing behind a pulpit with an entire

page full of notes and everyone looking at me. Rosalie

said I turned white as I stood there, trying to gather my

courage to begin. Then the door suddenly opened, and

three more people came in and sat down. That did it!

They were perfect strangers!

I almost passed out as I leaned forward, gripping the

pulpit for support. I can still remember watching my

knuckles turn white as I stared down at them. I was

afraid to look at the people.

Image result for fear of speaking to a group

Finally, I pulled myself together enough to read my text

— but then my mind went completely blank! Earlier

that day I had thought of a hundred things to say, but

my mental “slate”had been wiped clean by panic.

So, as an emergency measure, I picked up my notes and

began to read. But the situation only grew worse. By the

time I had finished reading my notes, I had absolutely

nothing left to say. I was paralyzed with fear!

I looked sheepishly toward my pastor for help, so she

walked up to the pulpit to rescue me.I hurt so bad

inside I wanted to cry. It was a long walk back to my

chair. I sat down just in time to hear the pastor

apologize to the people, saying, “I’m sorry, folks. He told

me he was called to preach…”

Image result for  introducing the guest speaker

The entire ordeal had lasted about seven minutes. That

night I buried my face in my pillow and cried until

some of the hurt was gone. It was a long time before I

stood behind a pulpit to preach again — almost two

years!

It seemed as though that night had confirmed

everything I had already known. I just didn’t have what

it took to be a preacher. My grandpa’s words rang in my

ears: “You’re never going to amount to anything!”

Image result for your never going to amount to anything

After being devastated by my first attempt at

preaching, I knew there was a mountain of bad

programming and poor images to overcome. But, glory

to God, in the months that followed,something

happened to break that deadly pattern. I learned about

the importance of meditating on God’s Word!

Two years later, I summoned the courage to make my

second attempt at preaching. But something was very

different this time.

Even though I hadn’t physically stood before a crowd

for any reason for those two years,through meditation I

had stood before crowds and preached hundreds of

times. I would close my eyes and see myself preaching. I

could even hear myself preach the message over and

over again in my spirit. I was painting a picture of

victory on the inside of me.

potluckfbc-jacksonville

You see, I meditated on verses that described the image

of truth that I needed to conform to — verses such as I

can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth

me (Phil.4:13) and …greater is He that is in you, than he

that is in the world (1 John 4:4). I kept meditating on

those verses until they actually changed the way I saw

myself!

6b5bc3d911b10c375d37db2e6defdeb7

It was incredible. When the moment came, it was

though I had preached hundreds of times. I was amazed

at how easy it was to conform to the image that had

been created in my spirit through meditation.That’s

what makes meditation so powerful: It replaces the

problem with the Word and the fear of failure with

faith in every area of your life.

 

_______________________________________________

Larry now, I can attest to this message 100 % because I practiced preaching what God had given me to share so many times in the truck that I tell people I am not bringing a message, I AM THE MESSAGE.

So when the time did come to speak publicly in a church setting, everything just flowed out like a river, because that’s who I was now. This is so powerful in transforming lives.

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.

Teenager holding a bible

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).

Image result for apostles picking deacons

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.

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.

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.”

Image result for devil tempting jesus in the desert

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.”

Image result for israelites in the desert

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.

TISS THE SEASON

_______________________________________________

Well, from all of us at ACTS 29 TODAY (that would be me) I just want to share a few things about this season, and I would invite you to do your own research if you want to find out the truth about it.

 

There are of course many obvious things associated with Christmas that are not true, like the date of Jesus birth, the 3 or how many wise men there really were… were not present at His birth.

 

But more important than these obvious things is the truth that The Christmas that is celebrated today, as with a large degree of Christianity itself is from PAGAN ROOTS.

 

Just do your research, and you will trace it all the way back to Nimrod who built the tower of babel, and Constantine added Christianity into the mix of what was originally the worship of the sun god on the equinox December 25th.

Image result for the tower of babel

So the question is; WHAT SEASON IS IT AND CAN WE REALLY MAKE JESUS THE REASON FOR IT?

After all of my research on this subject, I can no longer say JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON….BECAUSE

THE SEASON IS PAGAN FROM THE WORSHIP OF THE SUN AND HAS ALL OF ITS ROOTS IN PAGANISM.

 

SO I CANT SAY JESUS IS THE REASON FOR A PAGAN SEASON OF SUN WORSHIP ON DECEMBER 25TH THE EQUINOX.

The early Church would have never ever taken part in a pagan worship of the Sun day (ever wonder where sun-day came from) December 25th.

 

So please do your research about these things as it is of utmost importance, you can start by watching a 3 part series on youtube called WHAT YOUR PASTOR NEVER TOLD YOU ABOUT CHRISTMAS

 

Next you can read the book PAGAN CHRISTIANITY just google it, between just these 2 sources of history you will absolutely see how, and why, we have gotten to where we are today.

 

Now sad to say, most people will not read the book or listen to the series on youtube, but hopefully the people who read these blogs are not in that crowd and really want to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Yes I am extremely thankful for the birth of Christ, whatever day that was, and I am thankful for that EVERYDAY AS WELL.

 

BUT I CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PAGAN ROOTED CHRISTMAS SEASON OF THE MODERN WORLD.

HOW TO SPEND 3 HOURS WITH THE LORD

 

_______________________________________________

(by Dave Roberson)

 

From time to time I have been asked what I consider to

be the most powerful way for a person to spend three

or four hours in the Presence of God if that’s all the

time he has to do so in a given week. After many years

of praying and waiting on God, my answer boils down to

these three basic things:

1.Worship and praise(which supplies the sustaining

power needed for the duration of our trials, trading our

weaknesses for Christ’s strength)

2. Confession of God’s Word(speaking to the

“mountains” in our lives that need to be removed

—sickness

3. Praying in tongues(the supernatural language that

or pain, finances or torment, worry or fear, etc.) not

only edifies but supplies revelation knowledge)

You see, it isn’t the general messages that you hear a

minister preach for an hour each week that will change

your life. The anointed teacher or pastor can only

supply some of the information required for needed

change.

Preaching

But the real change comes when in the privacy of your

own home, you apply the Word to the problems you are

facing. Your life is transformed in direct proportion to

the private time you spend praying in the Spirit and in

confession of the Word and worship.

Now, it’s important to understand that the guidelines

I’m about to give you for spending time with God are

just that — guidelines. They are not a set formula that

you must follow to the letter in order to enjoy

fellowship with the Father.

Image result for the formula

Just follow the leading of the Holy Spirit as you develop

these three areas in your walk with God. As you do, you

will enjoy a new dimension of answered prayer and a

strong, continual awareness of God’s Presence.

The First Hour: Worship

 

___________________________________________________________________________________________

The first hour I would enter God’s Presence in worship,

praise, and thanksgiving. I’d say,“Here I am, Father. I

don’t have any needs to present, because all of my

needs were met at the Cross two thousand years ago.

I’m just here to fellowship with You because You’re my

Father and I’m your child. I’m going to ascend on Your

holy hill and see how high I can go praising and

worshiping You.” My goal is to develop a relationship

with God based on fellowship instead of need.

3ee55-manholyspirit

Too many times believers enter into God’s Presence

only when they are instructed to do so in church or

when they need something. But one of the highest

forms of worship is to enter into His Presence in our

private lives to praise and worship Him as our

Heavenly Father simply because our name is written in

the Lamb’s Book of Life.

God is exceedingly glad that we are His children and

that He is our Father. And as a Father who enjoys His

children, He wants to spend time with us fellow

shipping around His throne. He likes it when we lift up

holy hands and tell Him just how much we love Him in

pure fellowship.

So how do we enter the Presence of God? Well, the Holy

Spirit was sent to glorify Jesus(John 16:14). His entire

ministry is to bring you into Jesus’ Presence. Then Jesus

in turn brings you into the Presence of the Father. And

the same principles Jesus taught His disciples about

entering into the Father’s Presence applies to entering

the Presence of Jesus.

Jesus said, “When you pray, say, …Our Father which art

in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name(Matt. 6:9). That word

“hallowed” means to sanctify His Name in our lives,

raising it high above everything else. It means to enter

His Presence with reverent worship.

Hypothetically speaking, we are always in God’s

Presence. We have Jesus’ Name. We can petition God at

any moment of the day.

But when we have time to enter the Presence of God

with protocol, then let me tell you right now, there is a

way that pleases Him.

First of all, there is a way to offer myself to God in

private worship. The first part of me I should offer up

before Him is my soul — my intellect, my will, and my

emotions.

Image result for my soul

I may not feel like offering up my soul to God. No one

may be leading me to do so. A band doesn’t follow me

around, creating an atmosphere for worship. I don’t

always have a cassette or a compact disc available to

play worship music for me. But when I enter into God’s

Presence offering my soul, I almost always end up

worshiping Him in spirit.

Secondly, when I come before Him, I am to show Him

respect. An ambassador will show honor to an earthly

king by bowing before him and offering him gifts. How

much more should I show respect as I enter the

Presence of the King of Kings with the offering of my

soul?

Sometimes we forget whose Presence we are entering

into. Yes, Jesus is our best Friend.Yes, He is our

Confidant. But when we approach Him with a petition

or with worship, He is our High Priest, and He deserves

our highest honor and respect.

For that very reason, it is highly important that we do

not let our soul wander off down the street to solve

some problem when it is supposed to be worshiping the

King of Kings. If we want our soul to be blessed by the

King, then we must keep our soul in the Presence of the

King. To do otherwise would be highly disrespectful, to

say the least.

The Second Hour:

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Confession of God’s Word Then I would spend my

second hour with the Lord reconciling the problem I’m

currently facing to the Cross. How? By replacing with

the words of my mouth the image of the problem that

the devil sends my way with the image that is in the

Word. That is my inheritance and my right as a

believer.

Biblia

As I entered the second hour, I’d say, “Father, I thank

You that devils are subject to me. I thank You that

disease, which is caused directly or indirectly by devils,

is subject to me in Your Name. I thank You that I have

been delivered from poverty and that it is also subject

tome in Your Name. I thank You for all these things,

Father.

“Now if You will excuse me, Father, the devil is

invading my territory. So I’m going to use the faith and

the Word You have given me to meet that invasion

head-on with the power of confession.

“You said that if I do not doubt Your Word with my

heart and if I confess it with my mouth,the same

incredible power that wrought the most phenomenal

miracle of all, the rebirth, will also operate to remove

my mountain.

”So I would spend the next hour hurling the confession

of God’s Word directly at my problem. I’d talk to that

mountain in my life the same way Jesus talked to the fig

tree in Mark 11:14.

For example, if I was dealing with financial lack, I’d

confess something like this over and over: “Poverty, you

have been reconciled to the Cross. Jesus Himself has

borne my poverty by an act of grace. Though He was

rich, for my sake He became poor that I through His

poverty might be made rich [2 Cor. 8:9].

“Do you hear me, poverty? I have a covenant with God.

You cannot stay in my life. You are cursed. You are

leaving my life!

“And, prosperity, I call you in from the north, the south,

the east, and the west! Finances,I command you to

increase! I am enforcing my rights as a believer by a

gift God has given me— the confession of faith in His

Word!” For that entire second hour, that’s how I would

talk to that mountain of poverty, cursing it and

commanding it to move out of my life.

I’ve had the time of my life just picking on the devil,

doing exactly what I’ve just described. I don’t think

anything makes him more upset!

Now, someone may say, “I can understand worshiping

God for an hour, but isn’t confessing the same thing

over and over to your problem a form of begging?” No,

it isn’t. You are begging God when you ask Him again

and again for something He has already provided, such

as healing or deliverance from an addiction that has

kept you in bondage.

Confessing the Word of God is using the faith God has

already put in your heart to enforce what He has

already said about your problem. Once we have prayed

the prayer of faith over the problem, we are not to talk

to God about the problem — we are to talk to the

problem about God!

The Third Hour: Praying in Tongues

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Finally, as I entered the third hour I’d say, “Well,

Father, I have reconciled that problem to the Cross. I

have aggressively wielded the sword of the Spirit, the

Word of God, this last hour and have changed a few

things in the Spirit. I thank You that I have received my

answer.

topoftheworld

“But now will You excuse me, Father? I need a little

edification, a little strengthening of my spirit man, a

little praying out of the mysteries of Christ.” Then I’d

spend that third hour praying in tongues. I’d just lie

down, sit down, or walk back and forth, building myself

up on my most holy faith as I prayed in the Holy Ghost.

prayer-warrior

When you do that, many times you will start feeling so

edified that you won’t want to quit!You’ll say, “I think I

will tag another hour of praying in tongues onto this

one!”

You see, I have found something I can do during that

third hour on purpose, just because I want to, that

carries a promise from God to edify the part of me in

which I’m not supposed to doubt — my heart.

What am I saying as I pray? Most of the time I don’t

know because my understanding is unfruitful. But I do

know that my spirit is communicating divine secrets

and mysteries before the Father and that I am building

myself up on my most holy faith in my inner man, or

my heart.

So if I had only one three-hour time period that I could

spend with the Lord during a week,that would be the

way I would spend it. If for some reason I only had one

hour that I could spend in prayer that week, I would

break it into three segments of twenty minutes apiece

for worship, confession, and praying in tongues. All

three kinds of prayer are designed to benefit you and to

make you receptive to the finished work of the Cross.
