Knowledge Lesson for July 19, 2013
1 Corinthians 3:10-13
1Cr 3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.
1Cr 3:11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1Cr 3:12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
1Cr 3:13 each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is.
Many have found His foundation and built upon it, for broad is the way of the carnal mind. With fond rejoicing, pride and great words did they heap the teaching upon it giving themselves greater glory as their church was built. But much has been built on the knowledge of the carnal mind and shared with the tickling of ears to the masses who come as sheep to the slaughter, thinking that the teaching was from the Spirit of God but it was from the minds of men.
With wood, hay and straw great congregations have been formed, many never knowing the Ruach haKodesh or seeing the Power of the Kingdom of God.
When we build our tabernacle on the foundation of Jesus there are many materials that can be used. Test the materials with the truth revealed by the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit. The treasured material that Jesus gave us are the mysteries of the Kingdom locked away in the Parables that he taught.
At the appointed time, with a perceiving heart, eyes that see and ears that hear the Holy Spirit will reveal the treasured building materials unto you so that they can be used to build Our Tabernacle on HIs cornerstone. The refiners fire will yield pure gold, silver and precious stones. The wood, hay and straw will be burnt up like chaff in the unquenchable fire.
When we allow the Ruach haKodesh to guide us into the truth hidden away since the foundation of the world our tabernacle will withstand the fire when tested.
