THE WIND OF MOUNTING UP
KEY VERSE: Ephesians 1:17
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ ,the father of glory, may give you unto you the spirit of wisdom and the revelation in the knowledge of him.
There are different types of wind; for example
There is a wind that lifts you up when you start praying
There is a wind of giving that lifts you up when you start giving.
When there is a storm that is coming there is always some wind that does ahead of it. The eagle takes advantage of the wind when it wants to mount up, it positions itself in a way that before the storm comes the wind lifts it up. It has the power of knowing that the wind will help it mount up and that’s why it positions itself that way.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge ,because you have rejected knowledge I also reject you as my priests because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
From this scripture its crystal clear that Its lack of Knowledge that makes us perish the Kingdom of God operates on something called information, which leads to knowledge. for you to have dominion in the kingdom of God you have to be knowledgeable, because when you have information you have the power.
Knowledge is not acquired by reading but by studying. reading involves perusing through texts to understand concepts while studying requires more devotion, time and energy it involves researching and learning more.
Most of the times we make ignorant prayers like ooh Lord heal me yet in Isaiah 53:5 the bible tells us that we were healed along time ago by his stripes.
The level of our ignorance has caused the devil to suppress us.
The bible says that weeping may last for the night but joy comes in the morning Psalms 30:5,there are things we need to do to activate our light, don’t think that by sitting down just like that your morning will come.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God so we need to have the knowledge of the Bible so that we can know who God is.
For you shall know the truth and he truth shall set you free John 8:32,
When you have the knowledge it shall surely set you free. Knowledge is power.
There are things in our lives that can only disappear when we have the knowledge.
Business succeed due to the knowledgeable sellers looking for ignorant buyers.
When Adam and Eve were in the garden of Eden, God told them to eat all the fruits in the garden but He told them not to eat from the tree in the middle of the garden .When the devil in form of a serpent appeared to eve he told eve that God knew when they eat from that tree they will be like God and have the knowledge of good and evil. Immediately they ate the fruits they realized they were naked and when God came they had hidden themselves and when God asked themselves they said they had hidden because they realized they were naked.
This shows how powerful knowledge is because before they had knowledge they hadn’t realized that they were naked.
So God realized they were dead and decided to plant another ‘tree’ of life which is Jesus so that we could receive life.
Knowledge brings confidence and it delivers you from fear.
