Revelation knowledge will get you what you need right where you are. God comes to you on a level where you can understand in a peaceableness that doesn’t shake the soul to shutter. I’ve experienced that even though this knowledge may not always be what we want to hear in the spirit, it’s what we need to hear and is still revealed in peace and the call of God to a receptive heart.

Sometimes we see in the first light of its interpretation because its fullness is revealed in its manifestation and days to come. I’ve ventured to share my portion because nowhere have I mentioned arrogance, controversy or ego. Therefore, as our heavenly Father is gentle with us, let us remember not to become puffed up when God blesses us with a word from heaven and brings eternity to time.

It is without pause that I convey not everyone is spiritually postured to eat of the same meat you partake but can digest it if you cut it up, or should I say, “Break it down.” Remember, you already know what you know. It does no good if a ready message is lost upon the absence of humility and regard for others. 

“If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.” — I Corinthians 14: 23-25

Sometimes we can be the reason a ready message is lost upon delivery because we simply do not speak what we know so that others can understand or even give an explanation of our profound statements.

“Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God. Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” — 2 Corinthians 3:5-6

We receive revelations from God because we’re in a place to receive from Him, in which in all our getting it should insight humility. I remember being ministered to by the counsel of the Holy Ghost during one of the toughest trials of my life that He who walks in first stream walks peacefully. I thought, “What is first stream, then I looked it up?” It is a body of water that no other stream flows into. Later at church, the 23rd Psalm was spoken and the revelation dropped in my spirit. First stream, (still waters), He leadeth me beside the still waters. Thus, he who walks in first stream walks peacefully, as is He leadeth me beside the still waters and the scripture goes on to say, He restoreth my soul: which is all that I’d longed for.

God’s revelatory knowledge catapulted me and gave me more faith to endure the process of the storm. Many times did God minister to me as I ascended higher and higher and that is what we are to do for one another. The Apostle Paul said it this way, “Yet in church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.” (1 Corinthians 14:19).

Therefore, let us speak life so that others can understand and receive salvation and consolation for their souls and spirit man. This is the rhythm of the gospel character and the sound of the word of God exemplified in your life.
