The Text Plus the Holy Spirit Is A Winner

And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

—Ezekiel 33:31

 

When you are trying to find out the condition of a church, do not just inquire whether it is evangelical. Ask whether it is an evangelical rationalistic church that says, “The text is enough,” or whether it is a church that believes that the text plus the Holy Spirit is enough….

I would rather be part of a small group with inner knowledge than part of a vast group with only intellectual knowledge. In that great day of Christ’s coming, all that will matter is whether or not I have been inwardly illuminated, inwardly regenerated, inwardly purified.   FBR030, 032

I too, Lord, “would rather be part of a small group with inner knowledge than part of a vast group with only intellectual knowledge.” Fill us with Your Spirit and Your presence today. Amen.
