Revelation from God is like human consciousness

Revelation from God is like being conscious. You can’t prove it, but you know when it’s happening.

Revelation is to see truth that you’ve been unable or unwilling to see. Lying demonstrates that we humans frequently prefer truth concealed rather than truth revealed. To embrace the revelation of truth, we must be willing to overcome the illusion of delusion.

Modern, Western Christians seem to be drowning in religious teaching, but starving for God’s direct revelation. The more people experience personal elevation, the less they are open to God’s revelation.

Revelation is insight that comes directly from God and lights us up within. Choice is powerful. Revelation from God can be received, ignored, or rejected. When people begin to sincerely seek and surrender to God, He floods them with much internal evidence of His reality.

Anything that comes to you second-hand isn’t God’s revelation. His revelation comes directly to your heart. God isn’t knowable through analysis, study, and theology. To know Him requires revelation, surrender, and first-hand experience.

A church member with no direct, personal revelation from God is like a rocket scientist with no knowledge of aeronautics. Modern church tends to theorize about God. Biblical ekklesia experienced Him.

Jesus blessed the peacemakers. The goal of peacemakers is to end anger, hate, and fighting, not to use them to win.

Things that should be aborted: hate, violence, racism, lies, narcissism, bullying, self-destruction–but not prenatal human life. If science can’t prove that prenatal human life matters, then it is greatly deficient.

Jesus said: “Learn from Me.” (Matthew 11:29.) It’s not sufficient to just learn from a pastor.

To change or twist who the Bible says Jesus is, is to follow “another Jesus.” I’ve been an avid reader all my life, but I’ve never read another book that fills me with inspiration and revelation like the Bible does.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
