SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 6:4

4 For it is impossible [to restore and bring again to repentance] those who have been once for all enlightened, who have consciously tasted the heavenly gift and have become sharers of the Holy Spirit,

We have spent previous days trying to explain the foundational teachings about Christ. I have noticed that many Christians these days are particularly unlearned about the resurrection of the dead; the redemption of our bodies and the consequences. They do not understand that it is a core teaching of Christianity, and it is an attribute of the hope of our calling. Others include instructions on baptisms and the laying on of hands.

Today, we shall be taking an introduction into the further teachings for the mature since maturity is the Lord’s desire for every Christian.

We see an outline of the fundamental teachings of the faith in Hebrews 1-3. In verse 4, we find that some of the mature topics are mentioned; the first of which is spiritual enlightenment.

What it means to be once and for all enlightened is to come to a relational knowledge; an existential knowledge (as opposed to a philosophical and ideological knowledge) of the Christ; you are no longer to be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine when you get to this stage. By virtue of your knowledge of Christ, you can now discern what is spiritually accurate ( see Heb 5:14). You are not the type that would still run to and fro when the next sister Linda video is released or the next prophesy is uttered in Lagos. You have a working knowledge of the agenda of God and so even though you do not see something directly in the bible, you can discern whether it is good or bad. Remember all knowledge is either good, benign or toxic to the heart of man.

To be continued…

Prayer: Heavenly father, I thank you for giving me the possibility of spiritual maturity and a conscious walking of your power in my life. Help me to grow dear lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen
