Galatians 1:11-12 (Passion Translation)
11 Beloved ones, let me say emphatically that the gospel entrusted to me was not given to me by any man. 12 No one taught me this revelation, for it was given to me directly by the unveiling of Jesus the Anointed One.
When was the last time that you heard from God? What is the latest scripture that you received revelation from the Holy Spirit about? Not from a sermon or speaker, but directly from the Holy Spirit Himself? Sadly, for many believers, their way of hearing from God is limited to what they hear from a pastor or other ‘spiritual authority’. While these people have their place, it is not to be in God’s place. Everyone should have people who speak into their lives to encourage them and keep them accountable. But, there is a big difference in accountability and dependence. Placing your dependence on anyone other than the Lord Himself, makes you guilty of idolatry. God has specific and crucial words that He wants speak directly into your life and not run through the filter of someone else’s interpretation. The same Spirit that speaks to them is the same Spirit who wants to speak to you. When the veil was torn, the Holy Spirit was once again able to live in the hearts of God’s people. It was never His intention for that veil to be replaced in your life by a person. Are you allowing Him to have direct communication with you? Or are you depending on what someone else is hearing? – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
