Encountering God

Posted by appolus on February 26, 2020

Unless there has been an encounter with God how can there be a fear of the Lord? It is, for the most part, those who have never encountered God that do not fear Him. Even in the Word when people encountered angels they fell down like one who was dead, never mind encountering God. Isaiah felt that he was “undone,” as he stood before the Lord. The word “undone,” in the Greek is dawmaw which means to be cut down, to be destroyed, to utterly perish and at a very minimum, to be brought to silence.

There is a direct correlation between the proper fear of God and proximity to God. The greater the revelation of God in our lives the more we fear Him in a proper way. He is high and lifted up and His glory fills the temple. It fills every part of who we are to overflowing with awe and wonder and reverence. Our heads are bowed, our mouths are shut and our trembling hands are raised in submission and surrender to something so utterly otherworldly that it beggers the mind and transforms the spirit and leaves us changed and wanting to be changed even more.

The narrow walk

Posted by appolus on February 26, 2020

Gal 5:16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Walking in the Spirit is walking in fulfillment of His word. When someone offends me, but I do not take offense, I am walking in the Spirit. When I am insulted, yet I do not care because I am dead to myself and alive to Christ, I am walking in the Spirit. When I love the unlovable I am walking in the Spirit. When I agree with my enemy quickly and he is disarmed then I am walking in the Spirit.

When I look upon a woman, not with lust but with pure eyes then I am walking in the Spirit. When I refuse to be anxious but make a conscious decision to do all things by prayer and supplication and thanksgiving then I am walking in the Spirit. All these things and so many others brothers and sisters is the fruit of my walk in the Spirit.

As I do all these things and the peace that is beyond understanding fills me completely, then I know that I am walking in the Spirit of the Living God and my heart literally burns within my chest. And as it burns, it gives off a light that men can see and they are drawn to Christ in me. When this happens, I know that I am walking in the Spirit! My part is to surrender and yield to the Spirit that is within me. I must also be able to hear that still small voice that leads and guides me.

I must also be genuine in all that I do, my outward actions must be a reflection of my inner life. That right there is the difference between life and death. I must cultivate my relationship with Jesus because my ability to walk in the Spirit is directly tied to Christ in me and my relationship with Him. I must be able to come into His presence. It is only by walking in His presence, which is walking in the Spirit, that I can be used of Him to be light in the darkness.

Experiencing His manifest presence as opposed to having a faith in information is life and manna to your soul. Giving a mental assent to an abstract truth cannot feed us, we can only be fed in the Spirit. If we are walking in the Spirit we can be fed, it is then that not only are we fed by bread alone but by every word that proceeds forth out of the mouth of God. It is in the context of His leading and His guiding that our souls are edified. It is in this walk that the desires of the flesh begin to recede and Christ in us begins to increase. May He increase in your life as you walk out your life in the Spirit for there is no other way that He can increase and be lifted up.
