God’s love is marvelous to an extent that we cannot comprehend. We try. We dream. We hope. But take my word. We. Do. Not. Understand. Amazing love; salvation’s motivation, suffering’s soothing ointment. Amazing love. Too vast to comprehend.

Christ’s suffering was apparent but unrelateable. We wonder. We think. We ponder. But take my word. We. Are. Not. Aware. Amazing suffering; a gift to us, sin’s only redemption. Amazing suffering. Too deep to relate.

The Spirit’s touch is sweetly undescribeable. We seek. We breathe. We coax. But take my word. We. Can. Not. Express. Amazing touch; exhilarating to the soul, delight of the spirit. Amazing touch. Too precious to let go.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”   – Galatians 5:22-23

Did you notice that fruit is not plural? It’s singular. And if you look it up in the original words, it’s still singular. The Fruit (singular) of the Spirit is love. Therefore, the rest – joy, peace, kindness, etc- all stem out of love.

It’s like the Holy Spirit is the seed, love is the stem, and the rest are the pedals and leaves of the flower.

Therefore, if we struggle in patience or self-control or one of the others, the key to overcoming it would be to operate in a spirit of…yup, you guessed it…love.

 

 

Have a weekend filled with blessings 🙂

 

The School of Seers

 

Heavenly beings descending in our place of assembly. Objects hovering about people. Shadows and glow. Rooms filling with water, but no one is wet. Demons hissing. Angels worshiping.

These… Objects. Shadows. Water. Angels.

…Are seen by Christians around the world. It could happen any time, any place. It isn’t witchcraft. It isn’t demon worship. It isn’t Buddhism. It isn’t Harry Potter.

It is Sight into the spiritual realm. It is Discernment of Spirits.

1 Cor 12:10 “To another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits…”

The School of Seers is a book dedicated to the spiritual realm. Its doctrine is sound. Its teachings are applicable. For such a small book – a short, easy read – it packs a mammoth load of good information. Author, Jonathan Welton, opens our eyes to experiences we have never considered and spiritual senses we have neglected.

Yes, we can see into the spiritual realm. Yes, God is eager and waiting to pour out this gift, but a quick word of caution. Walking into the spirit realm requires the self-discipline of individual passion. This isn’t a light read that you skim over and forget about. It may literally change your life. Welton gives a lot of practical advice on how to sharpen our spiritual eyes but it does require time and it does require patience. So for readers who have one or the other, or neither of each, I suggest a pass on this book. But if you are ready to dedicate a little bit more into your faith walk, then I highly suggest reading this book with eyes and mind wide open. It won’t disappoint.

I give The School of Seers 5 out of 5 stars.

When the night descends on the city,
When the darkness consumes your world,
I will come with rest befitting,
I will come with peace interceding,
On your behalf,
To bring you through,
This great travail,
Of Truth and Holiness.

When life is heartless,
When the world is cruel,
I will come to bring you victory,
I will come to show you prosperity,
And delight your soul,
With all My joys,
And guide your life,
Toward Truth and Holiness.

When you enter the realm of discouragement,
When you walk in the ways of disappointment,
I will come to lift your spirit,
I will come to soothe and comfort,
Those little wounds,
So big, so small,
That lead you away,
From Truth and Holiness.

So square your shoulders,
My child, My friend.

Lift your head,
My sweet Beloved.

This is but a journey,
This is but a test,
To cultivate in you,
A spirit of Truth and Holiness.

Because in that spirit is life everlasting.
In that spirit in joy undemanding.
In that spirit is love forevermore.
