October 2010 - The Unlimited Language of the Holy Spirit

Tongues: The Unlimited Language of the Holy Spirit 

During World War II, there was tremendous fighting in the Pacific region against the Japanese who were taking nation after nation.  The U.S. troops suffered many casualties because their radio messages were being intercepted and deciphered by the enemy.  Military commanders searched for a perfect code that couldn’t be broken. It was discovered that Navajo soldiers spoke a “hidden language” only used in their families, which at that time had no alphabet or symbols and had never been written down.  So, Navajo men were trained and sent to the Pacific to use their language as the secret code that saved lives and won many battles.

One of the Japanese said, “What is that language? It sounds like they’re talking underwater.”  To them, it didn’t sound like much, but it was the language of the “Navajo Code Talkers” or “Windtalkers,” as they were called. Because the code talkers were so valuable, each one was assigned a Marine to protect them.  When U.S. soldiers were pinned down, the Navajo code talkers could send a message to activate military action in two minutes instead of what used to take hours! Their language identified the exact location of the enemy and enabled the Navy, Air Force, and Marines to target and destroy them.  These code talkers risked their lives to deliver their messages.   The Navajo code was vital to the victory in Saipan and every major battle in the Pacific. 

Speaking in Tongues, The Spirit Code

In the Church, there is a “Holy Spirit Code” vital to our victory in this world.  We are in a battle with the powers of darkness, a battle more intense than the battles fought in the Pacific region.  Lives and nations are being lost and we must have the help of the Holy Spirit now more than ever.  In Acts 2, God gave the Church a supernatural “code language” the devil could not break, called speaking with other tongues.   Since everything in this life happens by speaking, God gave us His language to speak supernaturally.  Believers not only worship in the Spirit, but they also speak out holy information, activate Heaven’s troops, and send reinforcements.  Just as the Navajo Code Talkers were protected by Marines, every believer has angels assigned to protect them.

We have access to all of Heaven’s resources through the blood of Jesus and the power and language of the Holy Spirit. This unlimited language gives unlimited access to all of the Holy Spirit’s resources.  The devil hates it when believers speak in tongues because mysteries are accessed and he cannot comprehend what is being said.  He tries to stop, confuse, and distract Christians to keep them from speaking divine secrets. In 1 Corinthians 14:2 the Apostle Paul writes, “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit, he speaketh mysteries” (divine secrets).  Verse 18 goes on to say, “I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all.” Paul valued praying in tongues, and he wished all the Corinthians spoke with tongues (1 Corinthians 14:5)!

I call speaking with tongues “God’s head by-pass operation.”  Why would God want to by-pass your head? You should know the answer to that!  One reason is that you have “blockages” there, and your thinking needs to change.  Religion and the devil will fight you about speaking in tongues, but praying in the Spirit is a secret, hidden, and unlimited language of dominion and revelation connecting you to the mind of Christ.

Jude 20 says we build up ourselves on our most holy faith praying in the Spirit. It takes faith to speak in tongues, so your faith is strengthened.  The book of James says that the tongue is the most difficult member of your body to control and it influences your entire body, so if you yield it to the Holy Spirit, you will gain victory in every other area.  Many receive healing for their bodies when they are filled with the Holy Spirit! Receiving the Holy Spirit will take all your receiving to a whole new dimension. 

God desires to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think according to the power working in you as you are strengthened with His mighty power. (Ephesians 3:16,20).  Speaking in tongues will take your prayer life to another level, strengthen your spirit, and give you an advantage over Satan’s strategies.  You will win in areas where you were previously defeated.  You now have the “Access Code” of the Spirit to help you activate and fulfill the plan and purposes of God.

June 2018 - Revelation Knowledge

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.  Ephesians 1:17-23

 

This prayer for revelation knowledge affects the eyes of your heart. It changes the way you see everything because the Holy Spirit opens the door to understanding the Word of God and the realm of the Spirit. The very moment light or revelation knowledge comes, faith is present. Revelation knowledge will always capture your imagination.

Some of the most prevalent crimes in this day and age involve breaking into computer systems. This is known as “hacking.” However, there is a system which can never be hacked. It is God’s Kingdom system. Once you are born again, you are granted access into the Spirit realm where you can download divine secrets. Regarding kingdom secrets Jesus said in Luke 10:21, “Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” Man does not discover God. He reveals Himself. We know God through revelation knowledge.

Paul was not at a disadvantage because he never personally met Jesus in His earthly ministry, but Paul understood revelation knowledge and knew the thoughts of Jesus better than the disciples. In the same way, through revelation knowledge you can know Him better today than those who walked with Him on the earth. Revelation knowledge takes you past the regional, historical, geographical, and theological knowledge of God and brings you into the inspirational.  All scripture is God-breathed and inspired by God. It is personal and will reveal your true identity and purpose. 

For example, when Jesus went to the temple, He found the place in Isaiah 61, where it was written about Him and said, “This is me! Today this scripture is talking about me.”  John the Baptist found himself in Isaiah 40 through revelation knowledge. When Jesus asked Peter who He was, Peter had a flash of revelation and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus told Peter that flesh and blood had not revealed it unto him, but His Father. At that moment, Peter got his identity and calling from Jesus: “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” (Matthew 16:17-18).

Just as Peter found his identity from Jesus, you can also find yourself in the Word today. He’ll talk to you right there in your house. You used to read the Bible to go to sleep. Now you read it and you can’t go to sleep! “He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned,” (Isaiah 50:4). The Holy Spirit takes you to the “video department” of the Word.  He speaks to you, giving you dreams and visions, affecting your eyes, giving you revelation that captures your imagination. Revelation knowledge is progressive.  It comes alive, just like He wrote it 3,000 years ago for you today.

Living by faith is really living by revelation knowledge. Every advance in faith is an advance in revelation. Revelation knowledge will literally change your identity, like it did for Gideon (Judges 6). God calls you things there’s no evidence that they exist. Yet, when they’re real on the inside—there’s nothing in the world that can stop it from showing up on the outside.  The power of His Word is all you need.

The Word is progressive, continuous, and endless. The Holy Spirit unlocks your understanding and brings great joy. Information alone puffs you up, but revelation from God brings radical change and results.  You will experience brand new revelation as you ask for the three things God wants us to know in the Ephesians 1 prayer:  His calling, His inheritance, and His power

Jesus grew in wisdom and knowledge by studying the scriptures (Luke 2). At age twelve, His parents found Him in the temple, wiser than the doctors of the law. It is said that David was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write the wisdom found in Proverbs for his son, Solomon, to live successfully.  Some scholars say, what was written in the Proverbs was actually wisdom from God, the Father for His Son, Jesus to have while He was on the earth.  Like Christ, we must find ourselves in the scriptures and grow in revelation knowledge.

“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: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust,” (2 Peter 1:3-4).  This is the way we can know our calling, live victoriously and reach our destiny through the spirit of wisdom and revelation.

If you want to know MORE, possess MORE fire of revelation, and walk in MORE of God’s power, you need these inspired messages from our BRAND NEW cd set, Revelation Knowledge: Breaking Barriers.” For an offering of $25, we will send you the CDs and our book, Revolutionary Revelation. Your partnership in prayer and giving enables this liberating message to transform more lives around the world. We declare to you, our partners that: “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!”

 

In Christ,
