Most often, Pastors and teachers attempt to make Scripture fit into their organization or doctrine or a 'churchy' mindset, not really making the message or intent clear.
Many Pastors and Teachers shroud their ineptness with feel good accolades to make the people feel good and temporarily forget about perhaps some life’s situation they may be facing. However, once the feel-good sensation of Spirit wanes and they are pulled back to reality to the mundane and necessary tasks to sustain a physical life, they are unable to tell you or know what Spirit was there to reveal or impart unto them.
We often include photos to grab the attention for those seekers who are in need of the very truths contained within the messages but are not disciplined enough to search Truth for themselves or ‘prove’ that of which they are being taught.
Yet, if one knows the Bible or even have a familiarity with it or any factual books of antiquity and history, they would be able to identify with any truthful revelatory messages as Spirit speaks to them what they need at that time.
Our beliefs and actions should be correct and appropriate in pliability to the Higher Divine Ways of life. "No one put a piece of new cloth onto an old garment because the piece put in to fill the hole takes away from the garment and the tear is made worse. Neither is new wine put into old bottles else the bottles break and the wine is spilled. But put new wine into new bottles and they are both preserved."
If we seek to find the 'Hope of our Glory' only in the pages of the Bible, we set conditions and limitations on the Divine Spirit to release what is needed into our life.
If one wants to go beyond the basics coming into the revelatory Truths for today; to open the “Little Book”; to eat from the Tree of Life of Knowledge of Good (everyone seems to have the evil part down); to receive the revelation of the “Testimony of a Christ”; to walk in the revelations of the “Mysteries of the Kingdom”, versus talking about it or waiting until one dies to receive it; it will never happen. We must open up to what is being revealed to those Enlightened One's for such a time as this!
