“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be thoroughly furnished unto all good works” 2 Timothy 3:15-17
LIGHT FOR NOW: Knowledge births Freedom.
Salvation functions in knowledge and this knowledge can only be obtained via the scriptures. When you understand the scriptures, you have an accurate knowledge of your salvation in Christ, you will be free from the works of the enemy. You can only benefit from what you know. Until you get fully exposed to the scriptures, you will not really understand what salvation is all about. Only the scriptures can make one wise about salvation.
The scripture is what forms our belief system. Scripture is the source or foundation of our spiritual maturity (Romans 1:1-3). Scripture is not given to be memorized but to be understood (Luke 24:25-27; 45). You are not powerful until you come into the knowledge of Christ. The need of a believer is the need of knowledge. Quoting scriptures does not guarantee success but understanding the scriptures does. God is no longer a mystery because the scriptures have demystified God. Scriptures are not meant for stories and they do not give life but they teach everything about life (John 5:39).
Every good product has a manual that explains the product. The Bible is the manual that explains Jesus.
The foundation of a believer is Christ. The benefits of salvation are obtained via full knowledge of the Scriptures. What you know will always make the difference. It is what you know that distinguishes you from the crowd. Until you know who you are in Christ via the scriptures, you will not be able to exercise the authority and dominion that has been given to you. It is the knowledge that you have about Christ via the scriptures that makes you live a life of dominion here on earth.
God is accessed only through knowledge. Any prayer based on the standpoint of knowledge is the prayer that brings results. Prayer is taking God’s word back to God for results. When you are not equipped with the knowledge of the word of God, you can’t pray the right prayer and you will never get the required results.
INSTRUCTION: Discover who you are in Christ.
PRAYER: Lord, You are my reality, in Jesus name!
QUOTE: You are powerless without accurate knowledge of who you are in Christ
