Experiencing The Word: Understanding Is The Key!

  1. Experiencing the word is the key to ruling our world. This much has been established. However what we need to find out now is how to experience the word, and this is what we will focus on from henceforth in this series! How do we get to that point that we shout like Jeremiah, " thy words were found and I did eat them and thy word became the joy and the rejoicing of my heart"? This will be our pursuit for the rest of this series; finding the word that changes our world. We will be looking at how to access the riches in this word. We will use two scriptures here as we get on this spiritual adventure!

    We put two scriptures together here, Psalm 82:5-6 and John 10:34-36.

    *They know not, *neither will they understand* they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High."(Psalms 82:5-6)

    "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? *If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came* , and the scripture cannot be broken"(John 10:34-35)

    If you read both of these scriptures you will see the following truths standing out

    •we are gods! (both scriptures establishes that)

    •the entrance of the word is what establishes our 'godly status'(Jesus said if he called them gods it is because the word of God came to them)

    •but lack of understanding of the word has made 'our world' to run out of course! Lack of understanding has not made the word to have its course and release us as gods to our world. Lack of understanding has not made us experience the word(David lamented this in verse 6 of the psalms, 'they know not, neither will they understand and so they could not experience the word thereby they lose control of their world)

    Clearly from the foregoing, understanding the word is the key to experiencing the word and experiencing the word is the key to dominating our world.

    To put in other words, to dominate our world we must experience the word! However to experience the word we must understand the word! Understanding of the word is key because principally that is the ministry of the word - to enlighten the darkness in our heart! Psalm 119:130 says it well, "The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple". Until the word gives understanding to our heart we don't become outstanding in life!

    All for the purpose of understanding the word, the Spirit of God transported Phillip from Samaria to the desert to teach the Ethiopian Eunuch. The first question Phillip posed to him was, 'Understandest thou what thou readest'(Acts 8:30). But as soon as he understood, he experienced the miracle of salvation, but he was not only the one, everyone in Africa who will ever get save had their salvation traced to the Ethiopian Eunuch!

    When our understanding dawns, our miracles are bound to come because the benefits of scriptures are released at the point of understanding! Read full article here EXPERIENCING THE WORD: UNDERSTANDING IS THE KEY
