WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD:
THE BOOSTER DOSE OR BONUS CAPSULE
“He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.”
Psalms 103:7 KJV
We are dealing with the series that I have for want of a better title called 'Walking in the supernatural supply of God'. Which in reality, is just me trying to codify and answer some questions in a structured way. The first four of these we have dealt with in capsules 15-18 (2016) 1. God is my source, God is my only source 2. God anticipated my needs, and made provision before the need arose 3. The supply is always more abundant than the need or requirement 4. I am complete in my born again spirit or I have all that I require in my spirit.
All of these principles run counter to normal reasoning and seem virtually impossible to the natural man and natural way of thinking. I feel pressed and compelled in my spirit to interject with this capsule which I have titled the booster dose or bonus capsule before we go on to the fifth principle. This I strongly believe will unlock and correct your thinking and help you appreciate that these principles are not just man made or clever thinking, they are real, true and scriptural. If we can grasp and make them functional, the possibilities are endless.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9. KJV)
Isaiah 55:8-9, is a commonly quoted scripture and because it is interpreted out of context, the meaning is lost. The common application is that God's ways and thoughts are too high for us to aspire to and by inference it is okay for us to continue with our low level subsistence, this in a way endorse and place premium on mediocrity. This has been repeated so many times that it has become a mantra that keeps even born again Christians in the bondage of ignorance (John 8:30-32). This scripture if taken in context is an admonition or a rebuke ( even for the OT saints, not to talk of the NT saints) to forsake the human or natural ways and thoughts, but reach up and aspire to God's. (Isaiah chapters 52-55 talks specifically about the redemptive work of Christ and the resultant effect). Not to bore you, look at Isaiah 55:5-7 which describes the born again experience in prophetic terms, the preceding verse 7 makes it clear. It says
“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
The 'wicked' here refers to people outside the covenant, don't forget that we are now the 'righteousness of God in Christ Jesus' (1 Corinthians 5:21, Isaiah 54:17). This is an admonition for the born again Christians to renew their mind, so that their thoughts and ways can align with that of God (Romans 12:2). Until you do this you will be a miserable Christian, the things of God would appear too lofty for you to aspire to. The reason why the children of Israel behaved so badly despite all the great miracles (acts) God wrought and they saw, was because they never understood the ways of God compared to Moses (Psalm 103:7). The purpose of the word of God, the Holy Spirit, your born again spirit is for you to begin to think like God and walk in His ways (1Corinthians 2:16, John 14:26, John 16:13). This in turn allows the transformation on the inside to come out. God wants to be understood just like any good father or parent, so that our walk with Him can be harmonious (Amos 3:3). There is no benefit in quoting Isaiah 55:8-9 out of context, in fact it dulls your senses to spiritual truths and keeps you retarded because that is what you are confessing (Proverbs 18:21). This is the key that unlocks the principles we are discussing, until you appreciate this they will remain mysterious, conflicting, confusing and unprofitable to your mind, this ought not to be so.
As we end this capsule, I hope you see what I mean when I call it the booster dose capsule? God is intensely keen for His ways to be our ways and His thoughts to be our thought because that is the basis of a productive fellowship.
SO SAY IT LOUD, "GOD'S WAYS ARE MY WAYS AND HIS THOUGHTS ARE MY THOUGHTS'. THAT IS THE BOOSTER CAPSULE
We would continue with the fifth principle in the next capsule, it's going to be fun, don't miss it. Please continue to publicise the capsule and link to your social media sites, let us fill this 'JERUSALEM ' with the doctrine of Christ (Acts 5:28).
