The POWERFUL teaching

 

John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.


I've been taking note of my dreams since I was a kid.

That's so very many decades of unusual dreams.

But this morning, a dream came powerfully.

In the last segment of my dream, I was telling my sister-in-law about the UNFORGIVABLE sin.

JESUS told us of that TERRIBLE sin:

Mark 3:28-29

King James Version

28 Verily I say unto you, 

All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, 

and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost 

hath never forgiveness, 

but is in danger of eternal damnation.


What blasphemy against the HOLY SPIRIT, would be considered "unforgivable"?

JESUS tells us what the scribes accused Him of:

Mark 3:30

King James Version

30 Because they said, 

He hath an unclean spirit.


How did this accusation come about?

Matthew 12:22-24

King James Version

22 Then was brought unto him one 

possessed with a devil, 

blind, and dumb: 

and he healed him, 

insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

23 And all the people were amazed, 

and said, 

Is not this the son of David?

24 But when the Pharisees heard it, 

they said, 

This fellow doth not cast out devils, 

but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.


To which, JESUS challenged their accusation:

Matthew 12:25-30

King James Version

25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, 

and said unto them, 

Every kingdom divided against itself 

is brought to desolation; 

and every city or house divided against itself 

shall not stand:

26 And if Satan cast out Satan, 

he is divided against himself; 

how shall then his kingdom stand?

27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, 

by whom do your children cast them out? 

therefore they shall be your judges.

28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, 

then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, 

and spoil his goods,

 except he first bind the strong man? 

and then he will spoil his house.

30 He that is not with me is against me; 

and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.


To the unbelieving heart, nothing JESUS could do is right.

The the believing heart, EVERYTHING Jesus does is right.

The LORD is beyond reproach.

1 John 3:5

King James Version

5 And ye know that he was manifested 

to take away our sins; 

and in him is no sin.


In contrast, here's how we are:

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


How can we even compare to JESUS?

How can the scribes even question His divinity?

JESUS prayed to the FATHER for His HOLY SPIRIT to come upon us.

That we born agains may be taught.

You have to be born again, to be taught by the LORD's SPIRIT.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


The born again understands things of the SPIRIT.

He knows we must honor Spirit ALL the time.
