A spirit of life or spirit of death

This is the title of an essay written by a friend. When he first asked me to read this and give him my opinion, I didn t understand what he was trying to say. It is about the Bible, God s word and the misuse as will as the use of it. I have been re-reading it and my perception is different now. I am seeing a stronghold can be on us in our devotion to the Bible. When our devotion to the Scripture is so strong that we don t hear the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us. The Bible itself becomes our god. When we search scripture to support a truth that we have already decided is God s truth, we are in bondage. I have been crying as I read this through for a second, third and even fourth time. When I think, I start to cry, when I cry I can not think. But after the cry, I see what I did not see before. Most men would not understand that, but most women will. For the female God created, crying can be a cleansing thing. He says he never studies the Scripture to hear the Spirit talk to him. For me, I sometimes hear the Spirit when I read scripture. The Spirit deals with and talks to each of us in accordance with our individual needs. Being female, my needs are different than that of a man. Once many years ago as I was thinking than crying, the Spirit said read 1 John. I started reading. Nothing, God this book is almost finished and nothing. I started chapter 4 and I told God, I am not seeing whatever it is You want me to see. Than 1 John 4:18, The LORD will rescue me from every evil attack and bring me safely into His kingdom. To Him be the glory for ever and ever. Amen I was under attack. For what does not matter for the evil one does not need a reason, he just attacks. I love the personal pronoun Paul uses, me. Say to your self the LORD will rescue me (Marsha) from every evil attack and bring me (Marsha) safely into His kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever. What will I find on the other side of the tears? I do not yet know. [url= After going to the link, scroll down and find this essay. There are several other good things there also.
