Strong Meat

Scripture: Hebrews 5 v 12 - 14:

"For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have a need of milk and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."

These 3 verses are vital for those who want to go deeper into the heart of God and the mind of Christ. These verses are the crossroads you must negotiate to enter into a higher calling or otherwise remain a pew sitter.

Life is all about choices and while the Holy Spirit is strongly moving, cast your vote. If you lack the courage to launch out by faith you will be considered a baby Christian and have to be content with milk rather than spiritual meat.

In John 4 when Jesus had his discourse with the Samaritan woman at the well, He told His disciples that He had meat they knew nothing about. We need to find that meat which will accelerate our spiritual growth.

One of the serious flaws in preachers today is the safety of the oracles of God. These are the baby steps of repentance, faith, salvation, sermons which are the milk of the Word. When you launch out into the deeper things of God you enter into a feast of strong meat.

I heard a fictional story a while back where two angels were asking each other what Jesus' disciples were able to achieve after 2000 years of Christianity. They were shocked to hear that no one has reached the stage of being able to curse a fig tree yet!  Sadly, spiritual authority is still hampered by fear and unbelief.

The Miracle Of Karen Ann (Part 1)


The Miracle Of Karen Ann (Part 2)

 was achieved  because we dared to believe God for greater things - we had to let go of the side of the pool and dive into the deep end. Sure it was scary at times but Jesus exercised all our senses to discern good and evil. We saw all the miracles because we chose to let go and let God. Jesus gave me the verse "I have never seen such great faith" to encourage us!
This miracle was when the Lord Jesus opened a door in the Spirit for us to minister to a deeply comatose Karen Ann and lead her to salvation in Jesus. She was 12000 miles away from us but could hear me and communicate back to me. The Lord also included every comatose person to hear her get saved and told us afterwards that 5000 people had got saved with her! 

We need to stretch our faith and build up the muscles to walk on water like Peter did. When you shun the strange doctrines and practices some churches engage in and you are truly led of the Holy Spirit, the power of God will transform your life forever. The full use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit will bring spiritual maturity and great rejoicing into your life. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father there are many who long to launch out into Your depths but are afraid to take that leap of faith. I pray they find the courage and enjoy the abundant fruit they will surely find. In Jesus' name. Amen.
