MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to
do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
NOT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE "SPIRITUAL"
[part 2 of 3]
*____...."For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary
principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have
their senses trained to discern good and evil".... Hebrews 5:12-14 NASB
____When believers are governed by the flesh [sense-knowledge and perception] they become "influenced"
by it to such an extent that their spirit grows dull and they are unable to take solid food.
____A believer fails to be spiritual because they are influenced too much by the flesh[sense-knowledge
and perception]. Only one whose intuition is alive and who enjoys uninterrrupted communion with God knows the deep truths of God. If the intuitive power is weak, what else can be absorbed except "milk"? Milk is "pre-digested" food. What this
denotes is that the soulish believer cannot maintain clear fellowship with God in the spirit's intuition and hence must depend on other more advanced Christians for the things of God.
____Matured Christians fellowship
with God in their intuition and then transform what they have been shown into milk for the babes in Christ. The Lord permits such a thing in the life of a beginner, but He takes no pleasure in having His people remain dull and powerless in communing directly
with Him. Feeding on "milk" indicates the person is far less capable of communing with God directly and instead relies on others to transmit God's message to themselves. The matured has their intuition fully exercised to distinguish good from evil. We are
of no spiritual utility if we have many ideas but do not possess the ability to commune with God and know His realities with our intuition [spirit, inner man].
