1 John 1:1,3 – That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life. That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us.”
EACH ASPECT OF MY LIFE SHOULD BE OF SUCH QUALITY THAT THE REVELATION AND IMPARTATION OF THE WORD, WHICH I HEAR AND RECEIVE, WILL FIND BOTH EXPRESSION AND FULFILLMENT THROUGH ME – THE WORD BECOMING (MY) FLESH, A PERSONAL REALITY IN MY LIFE EXPERIENCE, TO BE SEEN AND HANDLED BY THOSE WHO SURROUND ME.
Revelation 12:10 – “Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.”
WHEN I PERCEIVE GOSSIP OR CRITICISM, I STOP THE OFFENDER FROM SPEAKING AND ENTREAT HIM TO INTERCEDE, AS JESUS DOES, FOR THAT PERSON OR SITUATION. MY EARS ARE HOLY, AND I DO NOT LET THEM COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN.
Song of Solomon 4:15 – “A fountain of gardens, a well of living water, and streams flowing strongly from Lebanon.”
THE BRIDEGROOM (JESUS) IS A WELL OF LIVING WATERS. THESE WATERS DESCEND FROM THE BRIDEGROOM THROUGH THE BRIDE (THE CHURCH). STREAMS OF WATER FLOW WILDLY FROM THE DEPTHS OF GOD, REPRESENTED BY MOUNT LEBANON. THESE STREAMS OVERFLOW THE WHOLE EARTH, WHICH REPRESENTS ALL THOSE WHO TRULY WANT TO ENTER INTO THE DEEP FELLOWSHIP OF CHRIST. YOU MUST BE WILLING TO ENDURE THE WORK IN ORDER TO ENJOY THE FRUITS.
