INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES (1)
For as you honour me, I am bringing you into the realm of honour. By my priesthood you are coming to the realm of honour, you will be honoured by father because you have received things that pertain to honour. My priesthood is to raise you. As you receive the words of my priesthood, you will change, be transformed and come to your allotment in the spirit.
INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES (2)
They will charge at you even much more in this season but I have placed you upon a rock that never fails. Because you have been raised in the spirit, you will begin to combat against new spirits that will charge against you. You have entered into a door and adversaries are charging at you but I will keep you. I am raising you a voice, a refuge and a help to my servant. You will prevail because I have placed you upon a rock. I am your shield and exceeding great reward.
Man is a spirit, a soul and a body; the Gospel cannot be understood without an understanding of this concept. The Gospel is about saving all these compartments altogether. 1 Thessalonians 5:23. God wants to save these compartments and we need to cooperate with Him for this to be achieved. Animals do not have spirits, they only have souls and body and their soul is weak because it cannot ascend beyond this realm to God.
Man is higher than animals because he has a spirit. There are different kinds of spirits but three major types comprising:
- The Living Soul spirit:
1 Corinthians 15:45.
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. The first Adam was made a living soul. Man has been existing in the spirit before he appeared as a living soul. This shows that this soul is a kind of spirit.
- The Ministering spirits: These are the angelic spirits.
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
These spirits are very strong and are higher than the living soul spirit. Psalms 8:3. The spirit is higher than man; they are spirits of the angelic. When Lucifer and the angels fell, they corrupted the strata of the angelic. Ephesians 6:12. This is the corrupted version of the order that God set. Colossians 1:16. Principalities and powers are not only about the dark/evil ones that exist, which were the corrupted version of the original. The term Principality is gotten from the root word principle/order. Principalities are orders and strata in the realm of the spirit.
We need to become principalities; Powers will corrupt us if we have not become Principalities. Without understanding of the workings of power we will be corrupted.
- The Quickening Spirit: It is the Life giving Spirit that can save. Adam was not made after the order of this Spirit. When we got born again, we were able to see into the quickening life but could not enter into the quickening Life. John 3:3. A quickened spirit is a new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17. The one created after the order of God Himself. In order to understand this new status, we will need teaching. In order to access who we are and enter into this new status (of new creature) we need to be born of water and blood.
We need to understand that we are not just new creatures by being born again; we no longer have living soul. Living souls are no longer existing but have been made flesh. The last cadres of living souls we had were in the realms of Adam. Being in the order of Adam means that our souls are alive; Adam could not be lured into the seducing nature of natural/physical things/wealth (because he named all creature but was not seduced by them).
It was a great loss when man fell because he fell beyond the realm of living soul. Man has fallen beyond normal to the extent that creatures have become higher than us. Romans 8:19, 22. Creatures were made lower than man so as to make man see God and not creatures. Creatures were made lower than their normal nature/status to make man be the head of all creatures.
Most of the things that are seen are not the version that God made when He created the heavens and the earth. Spirit is also known as inner man. The soul refers to the inward man and the body is the outward man. The inward man is divided into the inward part and the hidden part. Psalm 51:6. The inward part is also known as the mind and the hidden part as the heart. It is an abnormality in creature for the body can function independently; because our spirit, soul and body are supposed to be whole and aligned as one.
Sin disintegrates/breaks and scatters what should originally be whole. When Satan introduced sin in the garden, his intention was to break the bond of man; which is to be one in spirit, soul and body. Psalm 2:3. He first disintegrated man’s spirit, which is his power house. Spirits do not die; they only change form from one estate to another. Satan introduced sin and targeted man’s spirit to render him weak and assume the role of spirit.
Man became another creature when the spirit died. Adam became another creature that was away from what God made as his spirit began to inform his soul. The soul was meant to be the intermediary between the two realms of God and the body, which is the earth realm. Satan assumed the place of spirit when he killed man through sin and began informing the soul of man instead. However, Adam still had thoughts for God after the fall and could birth sons that had God in them, but with another nature. 1 John 3:12. This is because there was no longer Life from the realm of God. The soul began to weaken until man became another creature entirely. The soul became married to another life that was not the original intention for man, which happened because of the fall.
Overtime, the soul was fed with knowledge from another world, which eventually sapped the life in him and made his spirit, soul and body dark, permitting the reign of death. Jesus Christ however came when man was at his helpless state (when man was dead in his soul).
For salvation to be total there is a need for a kind of restoration which must begin with the spirit of man. The spirit must be quickened as man had overtime called himself soul and body only. He could no longer think Spirit or God. When man’s spirit got revived, the work was still not done; that’s because when Satan killed the spirit, he proceeded to kill the soul before he rested. The same way, we cannot only afford to be saved in our spirit; we must proceed until our souls are saved.
The devil however does not want man to trap God in the soul because he has overtime gained control over the souls of men. This makes it difficult for man to practice what he wills to do; making it difficult for man to truly please God as they should. Satan is doing his best to shut the spirit and to hinder man from hearing the Spirit. Being saved in the spirit is not absolute salvation; true conversion takes place in the soul.
As believers, we must agree in the reality that sin is still working in our members. Therefore, we need the work of the High Priest in our soul. The soul always does wrong things because the resources inside of him are wrong. We should not rest at just being born again; we must proceed to getting God in our soul. Satan wants to gain the soul as a place of expression for his life; this is because the soul is a neutral ground for everyone.
1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
A man cannot claim God in his flesh or experience God in his flesh until he allows God to work through him. Psalm 42:2. It is the soul that appears before God; that is what thirsts and pants for God. God must have worked in that soul for it to thirst after God, because man does not naturally thirst after God.
Christians are the same in the spirit. It is possible for a man to be alive in the spirit and be dead before God. This is because it is only when the soul has been quickened that it can appear before God. The soul must be involved in the activity of the spirit to make God’s work a reality in the totality of man. As spirit is sitting on the throne; the soul must also be raised to be in the same position as the spirit. Ephesians 2:1. The earnest of the spirit was released to our heart (soul). The Holy Ghost was given because of the quickened Spirit that we got after being born again to prepare us to appear before God. It is only the Holy Ghost that can abide in the filthiness of our soul to work in it until it becomes clean to receive the Son and Father as they are in our spirit.
The old man comes with promises to make us better if we enter a marriage relationship with him. This is how he has corrupted man’s soul, by luring/seducing them. As Christians, the spirit is already seated in heaven but the soul understands the pleasures of the earth. It is in the mind that man can be carnal Romans 8:6; it is soul that understands the beauties of the earth as it is closer to the earth. This alluring has actually enslaved men of ambition on the earth.
It is only faith that can try a soul, if the faith is permitted to work. Church work is soul business; the real job of the Church is that all men will be saved. 1 Timothy 2:4. It is the soul that comes and appears before God. Satan will always shield man from seeing the filth in the soul.
INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES (3)
Our heart must pant!
The first husband wrought a work in man that makes him long for the experience he gives even after being born again. Therefore, God does not give up on souls. He works until the alluring of the first husband is purged from our souls. God does not easily give up on people; He continues working until man is perfected. We also should not give up on souls. In the Church, we must not give up on ourselves because the Church is a priestly house.
The Holy Ghost is standing as an intermediary for a while to bring the things of God to man. The Holy Ghost will not be there forever but for a while, man will have to continue with God. Heaven will reward the work of man and not that of the Holy Ghost. What makes us spiritual is not speaking in tongues, but what we know. The knowledge of God must visit our soul. The Church is not a place where carnality is flouted but where the knowledge of God and the Son is dispensed.
And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
No man can be pure except he has been washed by the waters of the Word and has allowed faith to prove him. Hebrews 4:12. It is only the sword of the Spirit that can cleanse a man to prepare him for more enduring substance, which is their own materials. Every man is full of nothing because the real substances are Christ’s. It is only Jesus that came to the earth and ended up having God’s intention in Him. John 6:38.
We are rated in the spirit by how much the rubbish in our souls have been removed. As long as we continue in beholding the realm of Glory and true light that we have been brought into (without wavering), the rubbish in us will be purged. The Gospel is meant to purify; to flush away rubbish. The Church is not a place for perfect people.
There are two kinds of body: the celestial and terrestrial. 1 Corinthians 15:40, 2 Corinthians 5:1. The grade of our souls will determine the glory of our bodies. The bodies differ in glory by how much salvation has been wrought in our soul. There are degrees of bodies. Therefore, as Christians we are chasing after something, because there is a Glory of God we must come into. The only thing that can satisfy a soul is knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is the Faith of the Son or of God’s elect.
Our soul cannot participate in the inheritance of our Lord Jesus Christ if we don’t follow on to know the Lord. The only solution to man’s problem is that the Faith of the Son must be introduced to man’s heart, which is the way they tamper with man’s arrangement. We must keep hearing the Faith of the Son of God, which will eventually remove things that are not of God from us.
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
For the flesh to cry shows that something has happened to it. A soul that longs for God shows that the heavens have touched the soul. If we don’t follow the Light of God; darkness will finish us. The reason why our soul is made is to make it cry for God. Romans 8:15.
As Christians, we got born again by a measure of the Word, but we will only be saved by the full unveiling of the Life. There are some works that are manifest and some that are hidden in the hidden part of the heart. 1 John 1:7-8. Sin is most powerful when it has generated a lifestyle; when it has gone beyond the level of the works of the flesh. We need the Faith of God’s elect to rescue us from the realm of lie. The reason we take thought of natural things is because the thought of truth has not really taken possession of us. Colossians 3:2.
The Gospel of our Lord Jesus is about saving the soul. The body is the timer of the soul and it determines our position on earth. We should pursue God while we still have time to do so, because a time comes when man will no longer be able to work. May our hearts be helped to keep pursuing God. Amen!
