Knowledge Lesson for July 18, 2013
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
1Cr 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.
1Cr 3:2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;
1Cr 3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
Paul's set forth the question, Are you still carnal? What good is the carnal mind in the unseen world of the spirit? The carnal mind is enmity with God. The carnal mind wars and has no peace. The Beast within My Friends, is the carnal mind.
The carnal mind lusts after the things of this world. This is the beast within that must be killed. For once you place the dagger in the heart of the beast you will begin to hear as spiritual people. The milk that you've suckeled along the way will satisfiy you no more. A different hunger will abide in you. For when the Beast within is subdued the lusts of this world will be removed and the Meat of God's word can be served and eaten with great Joy and Appetite. Be Ye not Carnal My Friends, come and eat your fill of the Word of God.
1Cr 3:4 For when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not carnal?
1Cr 3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?
1Cr 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.
1Cr 3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
1Cr 3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
1Cr 3:9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building.
The seed inside you must open to see the light. Those that love you will water you and let God tend to you so that you will increase in the Glory and the Knowledge of The Lord.
Remember always that your are the tabernacle of The Lord and now see the first veil. Trust the Ruach haKodesh for guidance into all truth, praying always in the spirit for mercy and to be taught the ways of Our Lord.
Plant some seeds today. See rain falling today, for if it's a dry land, water it with the revelation you have been granted and know that God is at work giving the increase.
