Unity

Dearly Beloved,
Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to embrace, embody and exemplify the Vision, the Virtues and the Values seen in the life of Jesus and the Apostles in our day.
It gives me great joy to welcome you into this new month. September is our Month of Unity. God is calling the Body of Christ to greater unity as couples, families and churches. We are in a time of unprecedented changes and challenges. This calls for the Body of Christ to regroup to be refreshed, reenergized and repositioned in this new season.
The enemy has successfully divided and destroyed marriages, families and churches throughout the world by strife, division and other divisive strategies. The devil believes in divide and rule. A house divided itself cannot stand. A kingdom divided itself cannot stand. A divided nation is a stagnated nation. Strife and division are the power twins of distraction, delay and destruction. He is using these tools and strategies to divide and destroy nations all over the world.
Satan promotes and encourages strife and division because it minimizes our effectiveness, hinders prayer and forestall the advancement of the kingdom of God. To deter the advancement of evil and the proliferation of the agenda of the enemy in our world, we need to practice and promote unconditional love, forgiveness, kindness and unity in our homes, families and churches.
Jesus Christ our Lord commanded us, “To love one another as He loved us.” He also affirmed that, “By this shall all men know that you are my disciples.” Love between Christian couples, families and Churches is a witness to the peoples of this world. Our love life makes Christ attractive to the unsaved peoples in our sphere.
I encourage you to embrace the commandment of love, embody it in practice and exemplify its precepts to everyone within your sphere of contact. Unity will increase your productivity, amplify the speed of your progress and raise the quality of your life. No more strife. Receive grace to do what Christ commands in Jesus’ Name, Amen. Much love from my house to yours. Shalom

Partnering for Vision Fulfillment

Partnering for Vision Fulfillment:
We have three Primary Purposes for this series:
  1. The purpose of this message is to help you understand your role in God’s redemptive plan
  2. To inspire you to get actively involved in God’s redemptive plan
  3. To accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission
Text: Proverbs 29:18; Amos 3:3,7; Acts 16:9-10; 1 Chronicles 12:18,22-23; Ephesians 2:10 MSG
God does nothing on earth without the frontline active involvement of men. God has delegated authority on earth to men. See Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 115:16. So if God is going to do anything on earth He has to work with and through men. See 1 Corinthians 3:9; 2 Corinthians 5:20; 6:1.
It was John Wesley who said, “It seems as though God will do nothing until men pray.” The fulfillment of God’s dream requires both Divine and human collaboration. See Mark 16:20; Acts 14:3; 15:4; Hebrews 2:3-4.
In Acts 10, we see a partnership between God, angels and Peter. God’s work demands that we hear and do whatever God tells us to do because we all have a role to play to see God’s plan fulfilled. See Acts 8:26-40; 9:1-19; 10:1-48.
God moves through people. God heals through people. See Acts 4:29-33; 5:12-16; 19:11. God speaks through people. God works through people. Nothing will get done until we do something. See Romans 12:6-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11; Colossians 1:29; Philippians 2:13. God is counting on you. We are the Body of Christ. He expresses Himself on earth through us. See Acts 15:12 NKJV; Acts 21:19; Galatians 2:8
What is a Vision:
A Vision is a revelation of God’s redemptive plan of God’s redemptive plan and your role in it. See Proverbs 29:18; Amos 3:3,7 Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 16:9-10
A Vision is a God given dream or assignment that requires collective participation for its fulfillment. See Nehemiah 2:17-18;
A Vision is a Divine Revelation of God’s Plan to save humanity through the redemptive work of Christ and the opportunity to participate in its fulfillment. See 1 Timothy 4:10; Romans 10:1-18
Who is a Partner:
See Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT; Matthew 18:19; Philippians 1:27; Philemon 1:17; 2 John 1:11; 3 John 1:8 NLT
  1. A Co-laborer
  2. A Sharer or partaker
  3. A Contributor
  4. A Participant or participator
  5. An associate
Partnership is mutual cooperation between two or more persons for the purpose of kingdom goals and targets.
A Partnership is an alliance. It is an intentional collaboration between people for the purpose of fulfilling a clearly defined vision that is mutually beneficial to all involved.
It takes partnership to fulfill any God given Vision. In fact, the largest corporations in the earth are partnerships that blossomed into empires. The world understands the power of partnerships and intelligent networking for the purpose of maximum impact. We have to learn it as the Body of Christ. Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM). It takes teamwork to make the dream work. The more we are, the more we can do.
See Numbers 10:29-32; Philippians 1:3-7
How to Partner:
  1. Prayer. See Isaiah 45:11. The first call of the believer is to prayer. Through prayer we Partner with God to facilitate the advancement of His plans and purposes. See Matthew 6:9-10; 9:35-38; Acts 12:5-11; Romans 15:30-32; Philippians 1:19; 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2. There are wicked forces in the earth and we have to contend against them to minimize the effect and impact of their work in the earth amongst the sons of men. See Ephesians 6:12; Luke 12:21-23;
A. Pray for the Man of God See 2 Thessalonians 3:2; Romans 15:31; Acts 12:5-11
B. Pray for the brethren. See Ephesians 1:17-19; Colossians 1:9-11; Philippians 1:9-11; Colossians 4:12
C. Pray for the advancement of the work. See Matthew 9:38-38; 2 Thessalonians 3:1; Romans 15:30-31;
D. Pray for the unsaved. See Ezekiel 18:23; John 3:17; 1 Timothy 2:1-4; Acts 16:14
  1. Participation. This is refers to your physical involvement in the advancement of God’s work. This refers to:
A. Attendance or your physical presence in our meetings. See Luke 8:1; Acts 1:12-14; 1:15-26; 2 Timothy 2:2;
B. Physical efforts. See Romans 16:1-12; 2 Corinthians 8:23; Philippians 1:27; 2:22
C. Time: Acts 14:28; Hebrews 5:12
  1. Provision. By provision we refer to financial partnership. Financial involvement is the proof of heartfelt commitment.

Understanding Grace from God’s Perspective

Understanding Grace from God’s Perspective
Dearly Beloved,
Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to preach the Full Message of this New Life to the peoples of this world.
The Bible says “This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” May you have a cause to rejoice throughout today in Jesus Name, Amen.
Our focus today is on the subject of grace. Grace is one of the most misunderstood and misconstrued doctrines of the Bible. Yet it is one of the most important subjects it promotes.
What is grace? Grace is from the Word “Chen” or “Hen” in the Hebrew and the “Charis” in the Greek. Both words mean favor but they mean more than favor. Though favor is the most commonly used meaning. Let’s study together to see what grace means and implies from the Scriptures.
Firstly, grace is unmerited favor as demonstrated in Christ. Grace is the lavish demonstration of God’s goodness as expressed in Christ towards all men irrespective of age, gender, class, status or race. See John 1:17; 3:16; Romans 5:12-17. Grace is the unconditional demonstration of love and goodwill towards while we were yet undeserving. See Ephesians 2:1-9; Romans 5:8. G.R.A.C.E is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Grace is God’s willingness to use His Power and His resources for your benefit because of Christ and His vicarious work on the cross. See Romans 5:1-2 (AMP). Christ is grace personified. See Titus 2:11; 3:4-7.
Secondly. grace is ability. The Apostle paul speaks of the grace that is given unto him according to the effectual working of God’s Power that enabled him to be a minister. See Ephesians 3:7,8; Galatians 2:7-9. Grace, therefore, is the divine ability to do effortlessly what is humanly or naturally impossible. For instance, when you look at someone’s life and their accomplishment and you say, “That guy is graced.” You are saying that they are endowed with some special ability or something. That is another expression of grace in the Bible. Grace is a divine enablement for your God given assignment. See Romans 1:5; Acts 14:26; 15:40; 1 Corinthians 3:10; 15:10; 1 Peter 4:10-11.
Thirdly, grace is the divine empowerment to live above sin or to overcome sin. See Romans 6:14; Titus 2:11-14. The Law could not produce righteousness. In fact according to 1 Corinthians 15:56, “The strength of sin is the Law.” (KJV) But the English Standard Version (ESV) says, “The power of sin is the law.” Check it out yourself. Grace makes men righteous and empowers them to live right. True grace is NEVER a license to sin but an empowerment to live above sin. See Romans 6:15-22; 1 Corinthians 1:12 ESV.
Fourthly, Grace is also the outworking of the influence of God’s Spirit. Grace is the defining character of God’s work in a person or a Body or group of people. See Acts 4:33; 6:8; 11:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12. For instance, when you observe the work of God’s Spirit in the life of the Macedonian Church, Paul The Apostle calls it the grace of God. See 2 Corinthians 8:1-7. It is grace that makes men generous. It is called the grace of giving. It is also grace that makes us prayerful. See Zechariah 12:10. Grace, therefore, is the outworking of God’s Spirit or the outworking of the divine influence.
There’s more but we will stop here for today.Thanks for reading through this letter. May God cause His grace to abound towards you to put you over the challenges that each day brings. May His grace empower you to overcome your bad habits and your secret faults. And above all, may God’s grace overwhelm your life and make it a beautiful expression of the goodness of God. Selah

Doing Marriage God’s Way: An Expose on Marriage

Doing Marriage God’s Way:
An Expose on Marriage

Dearly Beloved,

Greetings of Grace, Mercy and Peace in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to provide the Biblical truths, relevant tools and the practical tips that can help couples enjoy marriage as God intended.

God ordained marriage to be blissful, fruitful and fulfilling. It’s His desire that the marriage of every believer should be a foretaste of heaven on earth and a reflection of the love and unity between Christ and the Church. See Ephesians 5:21-33. Is that possible? Yes it is.

God never ordained marriage to make you bitter. A thousand times no. God ordained marriage to make you better. Everything God does is always good. God said that it is not good that the man be alone, I will make him a helper comparable to Him. See Genesis 2:18. God ordained marriage to add value to your life. He said, “Two are better than one.” See Ecclesiastes 4:9. I believe it because God is never wrong.

He has always scheduled good things for us for every area of our lives including our marriages. Every area of your life is important to God. He wants you happy, healthy and whole. See 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24: 3 John 2; Nehemiah 8:10. God is a caring and compassionate Father. He is not a heartless judge. See Matthew 7:9-11; Luke 18:1-7.

God cares about you. He wants your marriage to be a success story and not another statistic. That’s why we believe that every marriage has a hundred percent chance of success if done correctly according to God’s Pattern, His Purpose and His principles.

Marriages flourish when couples celebrate each other in an atmosphere of unconditional love and acceptance, affirmation and praise. Couples blossom when they cherish and nourish one another. But marriages fail and flounder when couples disparage and destroy each other with negative words.

Galatians 5:13-15 NKJV
For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!

Ephesians 4:25-27 KJV
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.

Satan cannot destroy any marriage without the cooperation or consent of one or both parties. It takes two to make a marriage work. Each party must do whatever it takes to make it work. In a healthy marriage, both couple seek to serve one another. Each one seeks the good and the wellbeing of the other party. Healthy marriages are built on selfless, self sacrificing and self giving love. Anything built on selfishness will destroy itself because Love builds while selfishness destroys. See Galatians 5:13-15; James 3:16; John 13:34-35.

1 Peter 4:8 NKJV
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

If we focus on meeting the needs of one another instead of using and exploiting one another for personal gain and aggrandizement we will find the path to a richer and more fulfilling marriage. I challenge every married couple to embrace the challenge of Love in this season and choose to do acts of love for their spouses more than what they deserve or expect. If both of you practice this towards one another, you will experience heaven on earth. Hallelujah!

Titus 2:4-5 KJV
that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Ephesians 5:25-29 KJV
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

I challenge husbands and wives to outdo one another in love. No offensive or negative words should be spoken to your spouse. This can lead to bitterness, anger or wrath. When a spouse is constantly provoked it will affect the quality of the marriage. Make your spouse feel valuable in your presence. Don’t put them down. Uplift and encourage them.

Speak positive words about them consistently. Love is a choice. Love is the unconditional disposition of goodwill to the undeserving. It is the unconditional commitment to the wellbeing of another. Love is the irrevocable commitment to an imperfect person. The success of any marriage requires the collective participation of both parties working together towards the success of the marriage. Marriage works when we work.

We also have to commit to pray for one another. We pray for those we love and we love those we pray for. As we make time to pray for our spouses turning the challenges in their lives into a project we will find our love life developing. We have to also learn to pray together. Prayer unites us. It binds our hearts as one. It fuses us together spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

Blessings,

Making Your Marriage Last

Dearly Beloved,

Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have been entrusted with the sacred mandate of building homes and restoring marriages for the purpose of creating a conducive environment to preserve a godly generation.
God ordained marriage to be a thing of joy that lasts forever. He created marriage to be a nurturing environment of love, mutual respect and fruitfulness but the enemy, ignorance, selfishness, self preservation and all forms of wickedness have tainted the picture.
God ordained marriage to be a reflection of Christ and the Church but today we see marriage through the broken mirrors of failed marriages, abusive marriages and regretful decisions, but from the beginning it was not so.
God our Loving Father wanted marriage to be happy, healthy and whole. He created you to enjoy your marriage and not to endure your marriage. We can’t sit back and watch the devil steal the joys of many and quench the hopes and aspirations of others. There’s an answer.
We believe that “Every marriage has a hundred percent chance of success” if we provide married couples with the right information, impactful insights and practical instructions with each couple demonstrating the willingness and the determination to apply what they learn. Marriage works if we are willing to work. We can’t expect returns where we have not invested.
It is time to invest in your marriage if you are already married or prepare for marriage if you are not married yet. In life you get what you prepare for. The quality of your preparation is what determines the quality of your future. Selah
For this reason we are releasing a book titled, “Together Forever” in order to achieve our dream of providing Biblical truths, practical tools and insightful tips that will make marriages blissful, fruitful and fulfilling. Let’s help you learn how.
Blessings,

Do you Know Who Jesus is?

Do you Know Who Jesus is?

Dearly Beloved,

Greetings of Grace, Mercy and Peace from God the Father, the initiator of our redemption, from Jesus Christ, the implementor of our redemption and from the Holy Spirit, the consummator of our redemption.

Christianity takes on a new meaning when an individual comes to know God personally, intimately and practically. It is our knowledge of God that defines and the determines the quality of our lives as believers. Let’s examine some Scriptures:

John 17:3
And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

Christianity is not a religion of dos and don’ts but a vital relationship with God as Father that produces a transformation of our character. A man or woman may keep all the rules and regulations listed in the law and not be born again, that is, he or she has no personal relationship with God as Father through Jesus Christ. That’s what religion is.

Religion is the worship of God without a relationship. It is the worship of God without intimacy and revelation. Christianity begins the day a man or woman receives Christ as His Lord and Personal Saviour and confesses that truth with His mouth. See Romans 10:9-10; John 4:20-24.

2 Peter 1:2-3 KJV
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

The more you know God, the better your life gets. Knowing God through His Word is one of the single most important keys to transforming your whole life.

The more you know God, the more your faith grows exceedingly as you discover our powerful and generous He is. The more you know God, the more fearless you become as you discover how loving He is. Knowing God is the key to the storehouse of whatever you are believing for.

Daniel 11:32 KJV
And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

The more we know God, the more we will be able to accomplish because our faith soars and our convictions get stronger. Our expectations are high because we know what He has made available for us, we know what He has done and we expect a Faithful God to fulfill His promises. Strong faith is rooted in a clear understanding of God’s character. You cannot understand God’s character without studying Him (The Word).

Hosea 4:6 KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
because thou hast rejected knowledge,
I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God,
I will also forget thy children.

Isaiah 5:13 KJV
Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge:
and their honourable men are famished,
and their multitude dried up with thirst.

2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Satan’s greatest weapon against the Church is ignorance. The ignorance or lack of knowledge of God’s Word makes people more vulnerable to deception and the distortion of truth. It is time to get to know God for yourself and by yourself. The best way to know God is through His word. Jesus said, “He that has seen Me has seen the Father.” Jesus is the physical, visible embodiment of all that the Father is.

To know God, get to know Jesus Christ through the Gospels. Everything that Jesus said and did was the will of God in action. See John 5:19-20; 5:30; 6:38; 8:29. I am going to challenge you to read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John within a thirty day period at least once and experience an unforgettable adventure with God In bodily form. See Colossians 1:19. Selah

Developing Intimacy with the Holy Spirit

Developing Intimacy with the Holy Spirit

Ecclesiastes 4:1;
The Holy Spirit is God Himself because the Bible says, God is a Spirit and He is Holy. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is God. He is simply God in action. He is the Creative Power of God personified. He is the Person of the Power. See Genesis 1:2; Job 26:13; 33:4; Acts 5:3-4; Acts 10:38All God’s dealings on earth are through the Person and Power of the Holy Spirit. He is the Divine Agent on the earth who partners with us in the execution of God’s will in the earth. See John 16:13-15; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 2:18; Romans 15:14-16; Revelation 2:7; 2:11,17,29
Our relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit determines the Power we will be walk in. Fellowship with the Holy Spirit is the secret sauce to a successful life and ministry.

  1. Be born again. You cannot develop intimacy with the Holy Spirit without being born again. See John 1:12-13; 3:3-6; John 14:16-18; Romans 8:16
  2. Be filled with the Holy Spirit. The infilling of the Holy Spirit is priceless in the Christian experience. He empowers us to live out our convictions and be witnesses for Christ. See Mark 1:9-12; Luke 3:21-23; 4:1; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 2:38-39; Ephesians 5:18.
  3. Be led by the Spirit of God. The more you yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit, the greater intimacy you will have with Him. Intimacy with the Holy Spirit is vital to your capacity to discern truth from falsehood. See Luke 4:1; Romans 8:14-16; Galatians 5:16-18 TLB;
  4. Fellowship with the Word by reading and meditating on the Word. As you align your thinking in line with the truth of God’s Word, you enter into a deeper state of intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Acts 10:44; Romans 8:5-8 AMPC; John 6:63; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
  5. Do the Word. Doing the Word strengthens your spirit. As you do the Word, the Holy Spirit envelopes your life with His Presence. John 14:21-23: Acts 7:51-53; James 1:22-25; Matthew 7:24-27;
  6. Obey the leadings and promptings of the Spirit. Obedience endears you to God. Isaiah 1:19; 48:15-18.
  7. Walk in love. As you learn to walk in love and choose to forgive quickly and habitually, you will experience a greater flow and intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:29-32; Philippians 2:1-4; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 John 4:16; 1 John 2:9-11; 1 Corinthians 12:31; 14:1.
  8. Fasting and Prayers: When we fast, we empower our spirits and bring our bodies in subjection to the spirit. Fasting is separation from foods and natural pleasures for the purpose of intense spiritual devotions. Fasting is renouncing the natural to invoke the supernatural. Acts 13:1-4; Luke 4:1,14; Mark 2:18-22
  9. Generosity. Generosity endears you to God. As you practice a life of sincere generosity, you become a vessel through God can flow. Barnabas was an example of this. Luke 16:9-12; Acts 4:32-37; 11:22-24. Giving sacrificially is a physical demonstration of your complete faith, confidence and reliance upon God for your sustenance. It opens you up to God. See Genesis 22:1-18; Genesis 46:1-4: 1 Kings 3:1-15
  10. Praise and Worship: Praise and Worship is vital to a healthy relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. It woos God to enter into our world. When we pray we enter into God’s Presence, when we pray, He enters ours. Psalm 22:3; 95:6-8. Praise and Worship conditions the human heart to hear God. It tenderizes the heart. Acts 13:1-4; 16:25-26

See 2 Corinthians 4:3-4; Ephesians 4:17-18; John 3:1-7; Romans 8:16; Psalm 51:6; Psalm 18:28; Proverbs 20:27; John 1:4-5; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Matthew 11:25; Matthew 13:11; Acts 22:14;

Enim dolore meliore ea mea. Ius ei minim possit intellegat, an sea ornatus appetere. Ei mei scripta intellegat. Verear voluptaria eam at


Through the Word: The primary to know God is through His Written Word. The Written Word, the Bible is the accurate revelation of who God is. It is God’s testimony about Himself. See 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21. God and His Word are one. God and His Word are inseparable. God never contradicts His Word. John 1:1-3; 8:30-32; 2 Peter 1:2-3; 1 Samuel 3:1,7; 3:21;
Through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the agent of Divine Revelation. You cannot know God without the help of the Holy Spirit. He is our Teacher. The Holy Spirit gives us access to the accurate knowledge of God. See John 6:45; 14:26; 15:26. The Holy Ghost never contradicts the Written Word. He guides us in line with the Holy Spirit. See 16:13-15;1 Corinthians 2:9-12; 1 John 2:20,27


Through the Knowledge of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. Everything He said or did was the Father’s will. The more we know Jesus the more we know the Father better. Jesus was the will of God in action. Jesus did exactly what God the Father wanted done in the way that He wanted it done. He was the PERFECT WILL OF GOD in motion. See John 1:14; 1:18 NLT, MSG, AMPC; 5:19-20; 5:30; 5:37-39; 6:38; 14:6-11
Through the teachings of God’s Word: When we teach and preach God’s Word we make God known unto others. Explanation and Proclamation are the anchors of revelation. See Romans 10:14-17; Ephesians 3:1-9; 1 Timothy 4:6; 2 Timothy 3:14-17. The goal of every sincere teacher or preacher should be to unveil Jesus Christ to others. See 2 Corinthians 4:1-5
Through time spent in prayer and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. As we spent time in fellowship with God, He will reveal deep and intimate things about Himself to us. This happens when we ask Him to reveal Himself to us. See Exodus 33:12-23; Psalm 63:1-2; Ephesians 1:17-19; Colossians 1:9-10; Philippians 1:9-11


Through Visionary Encounters: Divine encounters through visions and revelations transforms our lives, our character, our attitudes and our disposition towards others. See Exodus 3:1-15; 6:1-2; 33:12-34:10; Isaiah 6:1-8; Acts 26:12-19; 2 Corinthians 12:1-10.

God reveals Himself through Visionary Encounters. All encounters must be tested with the Word.


Through Experiential Knowledge: As we walk with God and observe His workings we can tell whether something is of God or not. Walking with God leads to discernment. As you walk with God and engage ins spiritual exercises our spiritual senses are developed. See Exodus 32:15-18; 2 Kings 6:8-18; Hebrews 5:11-14; 1 Timothy 4:7-8


Through Dreams and Revelations: God also reveals Himself and His will to us through dreams and revelations. Every dream or revelation has to be tested with the Word of God. See Numbers 12:5-8; Joel 2:28; Acts 2:16-17; 16:9-10. A dream is a prophetic parable and needs to be interpreted in the light of God’s Word. See Job 33:14-18; Daniel 4:1-37; 7:1-14
