Do you ever feel the hunger to plummet the depths of God? I mean to dive down deep into who He is?
Sharing from GlobalPrayer Alert Network:
Brother Hagin said, “Revelation of God’s plan and purpose for your own life and revelation of the deeper things of the Word all come by fellowshiping with God through the supernatural communication of praying in other tongues.” That could be singing in other tongues. Singing in the spirit. But communicating with heaven."
He said that most Christians today, just drill down below the surface and they want a quick word without praying out in other tongues, you don't get the depth until you really get out there in other tongues.
Should prayer be a downer? No! Prayer should be like, “Bless God, we’re going to prayer and we’re going to do some work for the kingdom of God. And we’re happy about it.” He, (Brother Hagin) said when he hit the gusher, the revelation by the Spirit began to come through him and he wrote out on a piece of paper that after world war II there would be a healing revival in the country. Then he forgot about it. He was in a meeting a year later, 1944, and he had it in his Bible but he just forgot. He opened up his Bible and there was this note.
So he’s doing the meeting and he’s in the middle of his message, he read the word that he wrote by revelation of God about what would happen after WWII. That’s all he did. He said it was a minister’s conference. All the ministers came running to the front, hit the floor and started praying in other tongues. He said, “I was still in the middle of my service.” He said he didn’t know what to do so he just hit the floor himself and started praying.
But his point was praying by the spirit in other tongues is where all the revelation, all the things we need are there. We can’t understand the things of God with our own natural thinking. We have to get into the spirit.
I Corinthians 2:9–13,
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Lord You have prepared wonderful things for those who love You, and we don’t have a clue about them.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Holy Spirit, as I read how You search out the deep things of God, into my mind popped this other Scripture:
Psalm 42:7-8 (NIV)
7 Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.
8 By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
(continue 1 Corinthians) 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
We have Holy Spirit within us to help us discern spiritual truth. He searches out the deep things of God; there is an unending depth in God and Holy Spirit gives us a taste of it. When we pray in the spirit, we begin to receive a new depth of knowledge from God. Praying in the Spirit is like plunging into the pool of God-truth, and it is bottomless, so we will search in eternity continually absorbing truth from the depths of God’s love.
[Psalm 42 above always takes me to an experience~ I stood at the foot of Wolf Creek Falls, and their roar was captivating. I just stood with their thunder creating overpowering dominance and understood somehow that God was there. Power of the roar, that plunging water called to the deep in me. It was filling/fulfilling like I was being fed spiritual power as I stood there under the strength of a God~force.]
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” (KJV)
FROM NIV: 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.
Indeed no matter how incredible it may seem, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, God Himself, lives in us when we accept Jesus gift of salvation.
It’s like being born anew, we are changed, totally cleansed, and the Holy Spirit will come and indwell us when we invite Him in. He will teach us truths, and draw us into depths previously unknown. God’s love for us is deeper than we can humanly comprehend. Allow yourself to experience it!
