Revelation Knowledge

“For You will light my lamp, the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by My God I can leap over a wall.” (Ps. 18:28-29)

The Hebrew word for light, “owr” means to be or become light, to shine, to be illuminated. It carries the meaning of spiritual revelation. When God shines His glorious light into our spiritual journey, we experience the sensation of a real awakening. Something is being turned on and destroys the dominion of darkness that surrounds our understanding.

Revelation is an Unfolding of Reality:

This “aha” moment causes us to see things for what they really are. Being enlightened simply opens our eyes to what is already there, but hidden from our understanding. God often hides things for our discovery! He wants us to come into Truth with a commitment to obey and abide in it. When you and I become aware of spiritual things and possess a fresh understanding about life in relationship with God, we are walking in the spirit of revelation. You receive revelation knowledge by drawing near to Him, not simply by getting information about Him (Jms. 4:8-10).

Another place in Scripture we see this little word (owr) used is in Psalms 119:130. The Amplified Bible says, “The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light (owr); their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple”.

Revelation Transforms:

We must realize the impact of revelation knowledge. At its entrance and unfolding; discernment and comprehension come to even the most simple minded man. We can and need to walk in revelation knowledge everyday, because our enemy, Satan is like a prowling lion looking for the moments of blindness in our lives, so that he can pounce and drag us into deception (1 Pe. 5:8). With spiritual revelation comes wisdom from God and intuition about spiritual things. Our greatest thoughts, visions or strategies for life are yet to be revealed in us, yet they give us the advantage God offers His Children.

We must train our spirit to receive revelation knowledge or we will find ourselves walking after the patterns of this world. Its not wrong to have natural knowledge (the world’s wisdom), but it is a more limited form of discernment. When we walk in spiritual revelation our understanding is not limited by our five senses; sight, hearing, feelings, smelling or tasting. Living under the influence of what God is revealing is the definition of the renewed mind (Rom. 12:1-2).

Tapping into Deeper Revelation:

It is by the Holy Spirit that the deeper things of God become available to our perception. Therefore, we need to be taught how to open ourselves to the ministry of the Holy Spirit and how to recognize what He is imparting to us on the inside. Our spiritual growth and effectiveness in ministry depend upon the ability to hear a current word from God (Rom. 10:17). The more the Word of God renews our mind and the Holy Spirit positions our heart toward obedience, the more clarity we receive in the spirit realm. Its no different than if we turn the dial on a radio and hear the variety of music styles in the air… tuning in offers clarity.

What Revelation Knowledge will do for you.

  • 1)  Change your perception…
    a. of God – (1 Cor. 2:10) says “For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.”
    b. of yourself – (2 Cor. 3:18) says “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.”
    c. of your purpose – Moses before the revelation of God saw himself as a shepherd to Jethro; and nothing more, but when the Lord spoke to him, he understood that his purpose was to set the children of Israel free. (Exod. 2-3)
    d. of your destiny – After meeting with Christ on the way to Damascus Paul’s perception about his destiny was totally changed (Acts 26:15-18).
  • 2)  Activate Faith – In 2 Kings 4:9 that woman had to take action to make sure that they prepared a room for the man of God. The knowledge that she had was coming from inside so she could not rest until she had fulfilled what the Spirit had told her.
  • 3)  Deeper Discernment – The Apostle Paul would not know of his future until he got a revelation of what was about to happen. After that he knew they were going to survive and was able to deliver such a message (Acts 27:22-25).
  • 4)  Clarity of Focus – There was great focus in Paul’s ministry because he had a revelation of God.
  • 5)  Increased Passion – The Apostles Peter and John ministered with passion and had little distractions from the vision for ministry. Paul further says to live is Christ and to die is gain (Phil. 1:21). That kind of life can only be lived by people with a revelation of Christ.
  • 6)  Release A Pioneering Heart – With a word in your spirit from God nothing can stop you from doing what the Lord would have you accomplish (Lk. 1:37).

Lamp of Revelation Knowledge

“For You will light my lamp, the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by My God I can leap over a wall.” (Ps. 18:28-29)

God has made a promise to “light my lamp”… my spirit is alive with His revelation knowledge! The Hebrew word for light, “owr” means to be or become light, to shine, to be illuminated. It carries the meaning of spiritual revelation. When God shines His glorious light into our spiritual journey, we experience the sensation of a real awakening. Something is being turned on and its this “lamp of revelation knowledge” that destroys the dominion of darkness that surrounds our understanding.

Taking Your Stand

Scripture: “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore…” (Ephesians 6:13-14a)

Thought for Today: “Having Done All – Take Your Stand”

When you find yourself at the place where you have done all you can, prayed, fasted, stood your ground, fought the battles and declared your position then all that is left is… to stand. As futile as it sounds, the battle is the Lords and we must let it be won by Him.

Moses told the people of God, “Do not be afraid – Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today! The enemy you see today you will never see again.” (Exod 14:13)

Stand & See:

When your back is to the wall and the enemies are breathing down your neck, hype and empty promises feel like a wet blanket. The battle is for your stance. Its the highest prize of all, because the ground you have already taken came at such a cost. A weary saint must be able to keep their heart in the fight (Mt 15:8). So positioning to see His salvation can feel like waiting for a victory in the midst of the midnight hour. What we reach for and what the goal has meant to us is that we be found faithful in Christ Jesus.

Trust Positioned:

Our trust in Him is a prevailing force that enables us to now be still and watch His hand at work on our behalf. This lifestyle of prayer and fasting can be bitter-sweet, because at times its triumph and at times its stillness. Its the knowing part of the Psalmist’s words “Be still and know that I am God” (Ps 46:10). Having done all to stand… we stand… and stand again.

3-Ways We Take Our Stand:

  1. Resistant: (Jms 4:7) We resist the demonic forces that battle in the spirit realm, defying our advancement and challenging our right to the promises of God.
  2. Consistent: (Ps 149:5-6) We stand firm in our praise of God as warriors, equipped for battle wait for the sound to advance.
  3. Persistent: (Mk 11:22-23) We speak His Truth in faith to friend or foe and acknowledge that the battle is the Lord’s. He shall do it!

Now the Just shall live by Faith! (Hab 2:4)

Dream Big Dreams

All this Fountain can handle

Don't make a wish, release a dream

I’m impressed with people who dream big dreams and I find myself asking the question…

 ”How does a person begin to think that they can accomplish the seemingly impossible?”

 This question has stumped many I’m sure, but my guess is that the answer is really quite simple… permission! That’s right more than anything in the world the platform for amazing dreams is permission. To know that you have permission to dream allows you to see differently.

 We have more information than we live in and so often we limit our experience by what we feel is acceptable in the eyes of those around us. Its time to break free from those limits.

 God has called everyone to a life of impossibilities and the only way to break through at times is to creatively think outside the box… to dream.

 To accomplish the impossible takes God-sized ideas. We cannot be fearful or insecure about our access to the Throne of Grace, if we are going to obtain the dreams God wants to release into our lives.

 I like to be around people who’s first response to a God-sized idea is (1 Sam 14:7) “Do all that you have in mind. Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.” Begin to give yourself permission by speaking what God says about you. He will shape how you see your “possible ability”.
