We bear with fools preaching a “so-called” gospel, but when an actual representative of Jesus presents the truth, do we reject them or consider them foolish? I know it’s hard to unlearn something we’ve been subject to our whole lives, but at some point, we need to question our understanding and seek out the truth. I’m not saying what you’ve learned is wrong, but maybe your understanding is not mature, or the Holy Spirit hasn’t given you his revelation yet. If the new revelation you’ve learned doesn’t diminish God’s word but enhances it and makes it come to life today, that’s when you know what you’ve learned is the truth.
I decided to change out the light bulbs in my new house with LED daylight bulbs. I can’t explain the dramatic difference over the soft light; the colors seem different and vivid. We had light before, but this minor change made everything seem more beautiful. Know this; it doesn’t mean I’m not fond of the soft lighting, but now that I’ve experienced a difference, I don’t think I can go back to the lighting I had before; it seems dull. Are you following me?
If you see me write something you’ve never seen before, do a little research; I don’t write it without first checking into its origin. Otherwise, God will remove from me any voice I may have; believe me, I’ve cried out to him for years to give me a voice; it’s precious to me.
Father, LORD Jesus, Holy Spirit, help us have a clear understanding of the messages you are trying to convey to your people.
For you gladly bear with fools, being wise yourselves! For you bear it if someone makes slaves of you, or devours you, or takes advantage of you, or puts on airs, or strikes you in the face. 2 Corinthians 11:19-20
