Do we know Him well enough to impart His Anointing to others? Today's Morning By Morning, devotional entry for May the eighth, written by the most excellent Rev. Spurgeon, made a really good point. You can read his wonderful writing which I have attached.

 

The Text was taken from John 5:13 "He that was healed knew not who it was that healed him...." And his point was that we can not witness for the LORD if we have no real knowledge of His person or character! We can be saved, or healed, or set free by Him and still not know Him! And if we have no intimate relationship with Him then we can not possibly transfer His healing anointing, can not pass along His essence to others! If we do not personally know Him and have a one on one relationship with Him we will never fulfill His great commandment to go into all the world and preach the Good News! He IS the Good News! But how can we preach or share or impart that which we do not know!? He is so right!

 

By and large the current institution that poses for "Church" in America has produced - not a nation of Disciples who are making disciples, but mostly - a nation of parrots, that go to church and get their spiritual bird-feed each week like good little, well-trained bird-brains, who are brainwashed by doctrine rather than enlivened by Scriptural Truth. We have produced generation after generation who can hardly articulate what they believe - much less why they believe it! We have produced sad, listless, grumpy, joyless whiners who rarely get healed themselves, much less know who they say is their spiritual benefactor! We have produced false witnesses, who lie against the truth of the anointing. Many who are anti-anointing (anti-christ) in their doctrine and "theology"! Many who parrot the name of Jesus and often use it as a stick of defense against those who threaten their shallow, fragile spiritual security, but wouldn't know Him if He showed up at their front door! These religious ones more often profane His Name than declare it! And we scratch our heads at the state of our nation? Get real!

 

It is time we did get real. It is time we stopped the religious games and made Teshuvah to the Truth of God's Word - and got to know His name! Yeshua the Living Torah, the Torah made flesh, who lived among us, and whose Spirit now attends and empowers those who truly believe! That is, He attends those who trouble themselves to KNOW the TRUTH and dare to live it to the best of their ability with HIS aid!!!!

 

Do we know Yeshua of Nazareth? Do we know Him so intimately that people can tell we've been with Him? It is high-time that we did. And if we don't, then we need to stop pretending - it is giving Him a bad reputation. One day we will all be held accountable for representing Him so poorly - and for the people who turned away from Him as a result.

 

It is time to get real. Real saved, Real serious about the Lord, the Word and the Anointing. Really empowered. It is time to become, and to reproduce 100% Real Believers - who really know their LORD.

 

Have a REALLY good day, Chavarim!

 

Selah.......

This Morning's Meditation
C. H. Spurgeon

"He that was healed wist not who it was."—John 5:13.

YEARS are short to the happy and healthy; but thirty-eight years of disease must have dragged a very weary length along the life of the poor impotent man. When Jesus, therefore, healed him by a word, while he lay at the pool of Bethesda, he was delightfully sensible of a change. 

 

Even so the sinner who has for weeks and months been paralyzed with despair, and has wearily sighed for salvation, is very conscious of the change when the Lord Jesus speaks the word of power, and gives joy and peace in believing. The evil removed is too great to be removed without our discerning it; the life imparted is too remarkable to be possessed and remain inoperative; and the change wrought is too marvellous not to be perceived.

 

Yet the poor man was ignorant of the author of his cure; he knew not the sacredness of His person, the offices which he sustained, or the errand which brought Him among men. Much ignorance of Jesus may remain in hearts which yet feel the power of His blood. We must not hastily condemn men for lack of knowledge; but where we can see the faith which saves the soul, we must believe that salvation has been bestowed. The Holy Spirit makes men penitents long before He makes them divines; and he who believes what he knows, shall soon know more clearly what he believes.

 

Ignorance is, however, an evil; for this poor man was much tantalized by the Pharisees, and was quite unable to cope with them. It is good to be able to answer gainsayers; but we cannot do so if we know not the Lord Jesus clearly and with understanding. The cure of his ignorance, however, soon followed the cure of his infirmity, for he was visited by the Lord in the temple; and after that gracious manifestation, he was found testifying that "it was Jesus who had made him whole." Lord, if Thou hast saved me, show me Thyself, that I may declare Thee to the sons of men.
