… When we began to hear and embrace the Deeper Life teaching we soon became aware that there was with the Word being preached a great emphasis and experience on deliverance. Much of this deliverance is a changing of the heart – a circumcising of the heart. We became aware of the power of God’s Word to work this deliverance and change in our hearts and lives and indeed it is still an ongoing process..
..That was what got our attention, that is what has made us come back for more and more. Something within us recognised that this is the answer to faith, to believe, to remove all the hindrances to our faith.
All of these things have to be divinely shown to us. We wouldn’t know otherwise, we would be going from ministry to ministry, church to church, sermon to sermon like so many professing Christians are doing. And they wonder why they are so confused.
Hungering For God
When the truth of God’s Word is revealed there is no confusion .. we desire the truth .. change and deliverance. We desire to inherit and experience all these promises in God’s Word that He’s made for us even in this life.
So with this faith and deliverance that we’re talking about are you seeing your faith maturing? Is it reaching out for more? Not necessarily just in blessings – that can have its place. But are we reaching out for more of God. For more of that relationship, that fellowship that we have with Him. Understanding more of His ways. That should be an appetite within each of us if we’re truly born again.
If we have that faith that pleases Him then our faith is going to continue to reach out for more and more. Because we have shown you over the years that the the doorway into the Deeper Life is to go as far as you want. You will never exhaust God, you will never outdo Him. You will never come to the end where there is no more He can do or give or reveal. It is eternal.
Are you experiencing your faith maturing and reaching out.. removing hindrances of unbelief? .. Are you aware that this is the Holy Spirit working this within us and through us.
The Nature Of The Deeper Life
Are you aware that listening to the Word of God is working a change – a deliverance causing you to draw closer to the Lord? This is what we should be experiencing and if not there are questions we have to raise and ask.
God isn’t going to have us meeting together regularly ‘because it’s my duty to do so’. Or ‘if I don’t do this I won’t make it into the Kingdom of God’. ‘I do this because it’s become a part of my routine. Or ‘I’ve been doing it for years now and I don’t really know any different’. You will never grow with those attitudes.
God will provide everything that is needed for you to hunger more and more for Him.. That you may know the Father and that you may know His love. That is the nature of the Deeper Life and that is why we teach it. If there is any other motive why you come it will not work and you will be disappointed.
The Spirit Of Truth
We continue in His Word allowing the Holy Spirit to remove those hindrances to our faith. For the purpose that ‘I may know Him more’. That is the Deeper Life. That is what God challenges [us with] and is what He’s going to work. Jesus Christ – that it is Him and Him alone. —– Pastor Kim
John 8:31-32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 16:13 (KJV)
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Reaching Out For More Of God
Philipians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after. So that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do. Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
