Only God can reveal His word to give understanding.
By Pieter Kirstein
To formulate your own concepts and ideas about God, without Him revealing himself to you by His Spirit, is idolatry and an idol gives a false image and testimony about the true God.
I see many religious people today standing in judgment of the revealed will and counsel of the Father and as with the Scribes, the Pharisees and Sadducees these men and woman are full of head knowledge of the logos written letter of the Bible and they are blinded by the pride of the human intelect which operates through the fallen deceptive realm of human reasoning.
How deceived have people become to judge God and declare Him to be in error through His own word?
It happened with Jesus and is still happening today. I say to you that many Christian religious manmade organizations will again crucify Jesus today, simply because they don’t know Him by the revelation of the Spirit. Many have created a false Jesus in their own minds and when Christ reveals himself through the ministry of the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God they reject Him because they don’t like what He has to say.
GOD IS THE WORST ENEMY OF THE FLESHLY EARTHY ADAM AND HIS WAYS ARE COMPLETELY OPPOSITE AND CONTRARY TO THE FALLEN WAYS OF SINFUL MAN. HE REDEEMS US BY CALLING FOR RADICAL CHANGE BY THE POWER OF HIS WORD THAT’S BEEN REVEALED TO US THROUGH THE MINISTRY HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
Jesus the Master Builder declared to us that the way of the kingdom is revelation by His Spirit, not head knowledge which originates from the fallen mind of man.
Jas 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15 This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
As the Lord declared to a friend of mine;
The fear of man in one’s heart produces a “reverence” for inclination towards the “things below” the world and its ways. While diligently”maintaining” a reverence of God’s Word [Will] in one’s heart produces a deep and steadfast desire for the things of the Kingdom [the “things above”].
God has called [and made the Provision for] His people to be a “supernatural” people, and the first step for one to begin walking [abiding – dwelling] in the supernatural is for them to refuse to walk in ANY way apart from the “Spirit of wisdom and”revelation” [knowledge]. For “revelation” is the way of the Kingdom while “sense knowledge” [whose perpetual fruit is a continued affixation for that which can be “seen”] is the way of “religion” [religious activity] – without exception.

We within ourselves don’t have any ability to renew our minds because it happens not through Bible knowledge alone, but by the Spirit making God’s word come alive in us. He is the only One that has the power to change us by the standard and the power of His revealed truth until He has transformed and caused us to become a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13.
The glory of the transformation work and renewal of the new covenant is declared by the Holy Spirit in Hebrews 10:15 The Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after this He had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord, I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.
This means that you are called to become a living epistle written by the Author and the Finisher of your faith. This world does not need another religious sermon written on paper being preached by a religious figure with an empty heart and a greedy desire for filthy lucre.
2 Corinthians 3:2 You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3 Since you are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
WE NEED LIVING EPISTLES WRITTEN BY THE HAND AND THE POWER OF GOD, WITH HEARTS CONSUMED AND CONQUERED BY THE BURNING PASSION OF GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THAT MOVES BY THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS AND A DEMONSTRATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD BY WHICH THE CAPTIVES ARE DELIVERED, HEALED AND BROUGHT INTO AN INTIMATE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.
The spirit of religion prevents people to see further than their own perspective, perceptions, opinions and beliefs through misinformation and misinterpretation of the rhema spoken word and supernatural illumination that can only come from the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of a supernatural God.
The Lord said to me that those who form creeds and doctrine from the logos written letter of the Bible without the rhema illumination of His Spirit are looking at a treasure chest from the outside and drawing conclusions and understanding through mental ascend. This causes a shallowness and deceptive understanding and interpretation of the true revelation that God desire to convey through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
God builds His house through revelation knowledge that can only come from His Spirit. He alone holds the key to the treasure chest of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God. Jesus as the living word himself is this treasure chest in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Only intimate relationship with God releases the internal treasures of understanding to those who really press into Him. As with John He reveals himself to those who become intimate with Him.
I say to you that Jesus the Word of God is an infinite measureless treasure in whom are hidden all of God’s treasures of wisdom and knowledge and this is why God created you to live a life in constant passionate pursuit to discover more of Him.
Now what gives man the idea that within himself he possesses any ability to understand the sealed mystery of an infinite God hidden within the pages of His book called, The Bible?
Jesus had to rebuke His own disciple in Matthew 16 when satan came against Him through the fallen mind of Peter. Peter lacked Spiritual revelation, understanding and insight into the ways and purposes of God and satan found entry through his unrenewed thinking.
How many times has God been rebuked by His own people?
Matthew 16:22 Then Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, Be it far from you, Lord: this shall not be unto you. 23 But He turned, and said unto Peter, Get you behind me, Satan: you are an offense unto Me: for you consider not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
We read in Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
This is why God instructs us in Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
In Ephesians 4:22 That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.
Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
We are all carnal and spiritually blind when we come to the Lord in the beginning and people need to realise that the Bible without the Spirit is a dead book and it’s being widely exploited by Satan to create cults and a variety of false religions throughout the world.
Even Peter the Apostle found some of Paul’s Spiritual revelations and writings hard to understand.
2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable twist, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
This is why we are admonished in James 3:
1 My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the severer judgment.
THERE ARE MANY RELIGIOUS FALSE APOSTLES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD LEADING MULTITUDES INTO DAMNATION THROUGH THE MISINTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE AND MEN WILL SURELY GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO GOD.
2 Corinthians 11: 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
SATAN CAN QUOTE THE ENTIRE BIBLE BUT HE’S STILL THE DEVIL.
We read for example how God told Daniel that the vision which was given to him will be sealed until the time of the end, which means only God can reveal His mysteries to man. For any of us to think that we can interpret the SPIRITUAL MEANING and language of the God of wonders and mysteries is plain deception.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Why do you think we sit with a satanic civil war amongst Christian people today and with so many different religions created through the misinterpretation of the Bible?
In 2011 I was sent by the Father to warn a false prophet to repent and Jesus said to me, “these people have used My word to create their own religion.”
In John 6 we see a classic example of the deception of the human intelect blocking and blinding people from the beauty of the Spiritual revelation and meaning of God’s mysteries.
Jesus just told them one of the most precious and powerful things regarding intimacy and oneness with the God of love and most of His disciples got offended and walked away because they did not make the effort to ask Him to interpret what He was saying.
THIS IS STILL A GREAT DECEPTION TODAY. PEOPLE REJECT WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND. IF THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS THE MYSTERIES OF GOD BY WAY OF REVELATION, THEY REJECT GOD’S COUNSEL BECAUSE IT DOES NOT MATCH UP WITH THEIR FOOLISH FLESHLY BELIEFS AND INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE.
We read in John 6: 51 I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he shall live forever. And truly the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
54 Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
56 He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.
58 This is the Bread which came down from Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna, and died; he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever.
59 He said these things in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.
60 Then when they had heard, many of His disciples said, This is a hard saying, who can hear it?
61 But knowing in Himself that His disciples murmured about it, Jesus said to them, Does this offend you?
62 Then [what] if you should see the Son of man going up where He was before?
63 It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life.
64 But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who is the one] betraying Him.
65 And He said, Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father.
66 From this time many of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him.
It’s as we read in Isaiah 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 20 For the ruthless one is brought to nothing, and the scoffer is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nothing.
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now grow pale. 23 But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify My name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
We see the Father’s amazing promise through such a passionate declaration in Ezekiel 36 because He understands that man is completely powerless to change or transform himself into the image and likeness of His Son Jesus.
THE SAME GRACE THAT SAVED YOU MUST ALSO BE ALLOWED TO CHANGE YOU.
We read from verse 23 And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, says the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them.
ONLY GOD HAS THE DIVINE POWER TO MAKE HIS WORD COME ALIVE IN US.
HE IS THE GOD THAT OPENS THE SPIRITUAL EYES OF THEM THAT LACK UNDERSTANDING.
Isaiah 42:3 A bruised reed He shall not break, and a smoking wick He shall not quench; He shall bring out judgment to truth.
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged until He has set judgment in the earth; and the coasts shall wait for His law.
5 So says Jehovah God, He who created the heavens and stretched them out, spreading out the earth and its offspring; He who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it.
6 I the LORD have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand, and will keep You, and give You for a covenant of the people, for a Light of the nations;
7 to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness out of the prison house.
False religion makes God a liar because carnal men think they can figure out an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent GOD with their finite human intelect. WITHOUT HOLY SPIRIT REVELATION, WE KNOW NOTHING.
This same principle is true when it comes to the Bible. The Bible is a sealed book and eternal infinite mystery without the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
Those who stand in judgment of the ways of God have been blinded, deceived and taken captive by the pride and deception of their own ways.
DECEPTION IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU NOT SEE AND UNDERSTAND AS GOD SEES AND UNDERSTANDS IT.
Humility in the PRESENCE of OMNISCIENCE is to realise how very little you know.
A warning to the body of Christ : Never lift your own opinion concerning Spiritual matters against one of God’s prophets, sëers or intersessors when He uses them to expose evil if you haven’t heard from the Lord because you will only find yourself fighting against God.
If they release revelation by the Spirit and insight into the hidden mysteries of God, stay humble if it offends you or if it does not line up with your theology or interpretations of what you think you know.
If you don’t agree with something then seek God’s face about it before you pass judgment and reject God’s hidden treasures which are released for your benefit.
It would be wise to ask Yeshua to do with you what He did for His disciples in Luke 23:44 And He said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me.
45 #Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
