[The Glory of Unveiled]
Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God ( Hebrews 6:1 )
Our knowledge of God is progressive. There are many layers of revelation that is opened to us when we journey with the Spirit of God into the word. As such it will depend on us to remain with one strand of revelation or move on into another layer; a deeper depth of truth. The truth cannot be a lie but one truth can be deeper than the previous or former. This is why we need to move beyond the basic teachings of the logos and then we will be taken into the deeper truth; maturity. We are not taken into the deeper truth unless we move away from the last layer of revelation we have. And then when we begin to make the move, we will be taken by the Spirit of God into a beautiful place of insight and light. The many layers of truth do not answer to how many scriptures we can read or have seen, but how long we stay with the Spirit of the word. Acts that lead to death are the things that seek to keep us stagnant in our knowledge of the Lord. These acts will keep us hooked to the need to have a good foundation of repentance which will mean that we remain with the elementary teachings. So, let’s stay away from the acts of the flesh [acts that lead to death] by the grace of God available to us and the Spirit of God will take us into those deeper layers of revelation.
Prayer_Bead: Dear Lord, by the help of your Spirit, I walk away from the elementary teachings and move towards the deeper truth in your word. By the Spirit of revelation, open my eyes to see what you will show me. Amen.
