Spiritual Exercise, Spiritual Experiences, Spiritual Revealtions By Minister Speed

As many of you know I believe that the word of God is relevant and holds true for us today as much as it was written in the days of old.  Brothers and Sisters we are entering a exciting yet fearsome new dispensation for the world we live in.  The word of God is coming alive and gives us precise instructions on what to expect and how to react.  I would like to give a relevant word of knowledge from God.

Spiritual Exercise 

The active conditioning of the Spirit man using the Power of the Holy Spirit to consciously and appropriately apply Gods Word.
The Bible teaches the importance of training and conditioning in order to follow Christ. Jesus is calling Christians to train and practice a godly lifestyle.
The following Bible verses provide principles on how to be more Christ-like. Study and mediate on these passages so you can be trained in righteousness and be equipped for every good work.

Here are some God breathing scriptures to help you develop spiritual Exercise to condition your spirit man.

Proverb 22:6
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Luke 6:40
A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.

1 Corinthians 9:25
Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Ephesians 6:4
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

1 Timothy 4:7
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.

1 Timothy 4:8
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Spiritual Experiences

The displacement and rearrangement of Ideas and beliefs to allow the word of God to take effect.
Some people have strong religious experiences, and think of them as proof of God's working in their hearts.
Often these experiences give people a sense of the importance of the spiritual world, and the reality of divine things. However, these, too, are no sure proof of salvation.

Demons and damned human beings have many spiritual experiences which have a great effect on their heart attitudes. They live in the spiritual world and see first-hand what it is like.  Their sufferings show them the worth of salvation and the worth of a human soul in the most powerful way imaginable.

The parable in Luke chapter 16 teaches this clearly, as the suffering man asks that Lazarus might be sent to tell his brothers to avoid this place of torment. No doubt people in hell now have a distinct idea of the vastness of eternity, and of the shortness of life.  They are completely convinced that all the things of this life are unimportant when compared to the experiences of the eternal world.  People now in hell have a great sense of the preciousness of time, and of the wonderful opportunities people have, who have the privilege of hearing the Gospel. They are completely aware of the foolishness of their sin, of neglecting opportunities, and ignoring the warnings of God.

When sinners find out by personal experience the final result of their sin there is "weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matt 13:42) So even the most powerful religious experiences are not a sure sign of God's grace in the heart.
Demons and damned people also have a strong sense of God's majesty and power. God's power is most clearly displayed in his execution of divine vengeance upon his enemies. 

"What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath-prepared for destruction?" (Rom 9:22) Shuddering, the devils await their final punishment, under the strongest sense of God's majesty.

They feel it now, of course, but in the future it will show to the greatest degree, when the Lord Jesus "is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels." (2 Thess 2:7) On that day, they will desire to be run away, to be hidden from the presence of God. "Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him." (Rev 1:7) So everyone will see him in the glory of His Father. But, obviously, not all who see him will be saved. Make sure you're experiences line up with the word of God.

Spiritual Revelations

To hear the revealed word of God and as a result vision Gods Purpose, Pattern, and Plan for your life.
Ephesians 1:17 "I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better."

Revelation- based learning" invites the Holy Spirit into the center of the learning process. Spirit-Anointed Teachers draw their listeners into revelation based learning.   “They were amazed at His teaching; He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” (Mark 1:22)

What is Revelation-based Knolwedge?

An example of revelation knowledge is when you are reading the Bible and a verse leaps off the page, hits you between the eyes, and God says, "This is for you right now." These are precious experiences for the believer. However, for many, they do not happen often enough. There are several things I do which allow me the privilege of receiving revelation knowledge every time I read the Bible.

Truth and insights leap off the page and an understanding of how they are to adjust my life permeates my spirit and soul. I love this experience and hunger for it every time I read the Scriptures. 

I have taken the liberty of listing 7 principles that will help you gain Spiritual Revelation from God in Christ and propel you into NEW dynamic living in 2013.

1.To honestly and earnestly receive Jesus Christ as LORD. This settles where we will be when we die and brings peace to our soul. If God is Lord, then he must be in absolute control of our life, our decisions, choices, and actions. Any decision without specific action is delusional as faith without work is dead.

2.To constantly read the Holy Scriptures. Our life and experiences are a testimony to God and we must constantly test our mind (examination) against the word of God for personal growth (renewal). In II Timothy 2:15 (paraphrased) it says study the word of God to show that you may confirm it, and be able to receive all that God has promised, with expertise and understanding of Him who sent it , able to give portions of the word to those that are lost without being ashamed yourself. The Holy Scripture are the foundation for life.

3.To have a strong prayer life. Jesus said the prayer of a righteous man avails much. We have also been commanded to pray for one another. As Christians, prayer is a power source and as we are in perilous times, all of our actions and ideas must be grounded in prayer.

4.To maintain a clear conscious with GodTo understand that God has placed within us the Holy Spirit to guide, direct, teach, and also to warn us or give signals when we are missing the mark in sin. To strengthen His presence, we must confess our sins and then repent (stop and turn away) in Jesus’s name. There must be no controversy between believer and God as sin retained will separate us from God’s presence.

5.To be Holy. God has called us to be set apart, to be different and peculiar. We are to live in the world, but not act as those who are of the world. To live in this world means to minimize the works of the Holy Spirit in our lives. To be holy is to live as God commands in His Holy Scripture. To be able to live this way we must be empowered by the Holy Spirit. 

Listen most people wait a lifetime wanting to know what being holy means.  Simply put to be holy is to believe what God says is wrong...IS WRONG, and to believe what God says is right...IS RIGHT.  The reading of the bible MUST be the foundational exercise in your life.

6.To have a proper attitudeAttitude denotes a stance or perception on life. As Christians, our attitudes should reflect an understanding of God’s will in our life. We are married to Christ and should be mindful of anything we bring into this relationship or place before this marriage as this would constitute adultery. God does not want anything before Him in this Holy relationship.

7.To put on the full armor of God. Although the war has been won, the scripture states “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places… (EPH 6:12). This battle is from within and we must be prepared for warfare at all time. For this reason, we understand the spiritual strategies (principles) God has given us to defeat the enemy’s attack. We believe that understanding of God’s armor will bring victory in every area of life.
    Lastly know that if you are out of order then God is not obligated to bring FAVOR and BLESSINGS your way.  Many people have a big OUT OF ORDER sign on their life and are begging and pleading for God to bring supernatural change, prosperity, and favor their way.  If you keep on living the way you did in 2011, then you will get the same things you had in 2012.  God bless and LET'S GET IN ORDER!!!
