THE LIVING GOD AND HIS LIVING WORD LIVES IN YOU
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:62
When a Christian is preaching or quoting the Bible Scriptures Empowered by The Spirit of God there is a Living Spiritual Electricity in the air and in your Spirit! The Word of God is God Almighty Speaking to you. His Word is Alive and brings Life and Health to you.
Proverbs 4:20-24 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
When you hear or read about others quoting scriptures with out The Spirit of God it feels so empty, dull and lifeless. That is because they are just speaking words without the Spirit of God. The Bible is an Endless Living Spiritual Power when used in agreement with God Almighty and The Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 3:5-6 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Many people try to use the Bible to condemn, manipulate to elevate their intellectual superiority over you. But when you hear the Scriptures Spoken with the Spirit of God it will always bring Joy Hope, Healing, Love and Life.
I always tune out when I hear someone speaking, writing or quoting empty scriptures with out the Spirit and Life of God Energizing them. The Spirit of God is not involved or in agreement with what they are doing. The way for you to know if what you are hearing or reading is Truly of God. Is there a Living Spiritual Power in their words?
Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.)
There are so many different teachings and doctrines out there but only The True Word of God continuously gives Living Life, Love and Hope overflowing throughout all of eternity.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
Ephesians 4:14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,) not according to Christ.
2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
