There is an urgent need in “Christianity” to look for, seek out and find the good in our fellow believers’ teaching – EVEN WHEN WE DISAGREE with some significant doctrinal point. Of course we must exercise the greatest due diligence with our discernment.
My own spiritual climb has received a huge impetus of late from Kathryn Kuhlman and yet I do not subscribe to the doctrine of Dispensationalism – not at all. Kathryn Kuhlman has a singular message – and once one gets it, he can go home, so to speak. It’s simply this: want nothing … absolutely nothing … but the Holy Spirit. That’s all. When I watch her videos, my whole be-ing begins again to breathe freely and so much junk from the past becomes nothing more than a sweet memory of what I’ve overcome.
What do you have in life that is more important than the Holy Spirit? Whatever it is, that is your worst enemy – your only enemy, really. You must crave (my word) the Spirit of God: it’s Jesus living in you, the hope of glory. But I sense that very few people are actually experiencing His overwhelming presence in an exciting and palpable way.
We can – and must – assimilate all newly-gleaned knowledge gently enough to allow ourselves to keep our beautiful, flexible minds open … open, that is, to the Holy Spirit. We are big enough now (mature enough) to learn from other believers, even if they are awaiting a rapture and we believe it’s come and gone!
We’ve got to NOT get cocky and think that we have all the answers; ask our precious Abba (Daddy) to guide us in every thought and tell Him to take anything from us but, please “Take not Your Holy Spirit from me.”
