Word from the Lord through DPG, 29/07/13
“LIVING THE LIFE,
& THE QUENCHING OF THE SPIRIT (THE MATTHEW 16 EXAMPLE)”
“I am grieved in My Spirit by those who react to the human condition; one moment, as with Peter, receiving the revelation, & the next moment reacting to the human condition.
“I am above the human condition. The apostle Paul was above the human condition, through the dying to self, which through the admission of human frailty; for he said, ‘It is when I am weak, I am strong.’
“My disciples on the Sea of Galilee responded to the human condition. They reacted to the storm, whilst the Saviour was not moved. Not being moved by the human condition is walking in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
“As with Peter, they received the revelation, & then the human logic discussed the moves of God. It is from Christ the Saviour; it is there in Matthew 16 for all to see. Those who respond to the human condition put on themselves human laws & rules to control it, in an attempt to stay righteous. In other words, the human condition is suppressed, rather than dealt with. This is the religious spirit of the Pharisees. They suppress & suppress the great volcano of Satan, which erupts into destruction rather than life.
“Revival is when the human condition is recognised, rather than suppressed. This happened in the Hebrides, & My Spirit responded accordingly. The preaching of the Word opens up that which is suppressed, &some respond by more suppression, not wanting anyone to know their human frailty. But those of My Spirit confess openly their frailty, as indeed you have the openness of the apostle Paul. The confession brought the power, the dominion, the anointing, whereas the suppression brings death & destruction. Quenching the Spirit comes about through those that suppress, & live under a religious spirit of self-righteousness rather than God-righteousness. They are always the experts over what you should do. But thou art of My Spirit. You need people around you to whom you can confess thy frailty. Those who suppress are rigid, unmoveable, unable to hear what thou saith. They hide under a veil of religiosity a hornet’s nest of Satan’s cohorts, ready to erupt at any time. Their rigidity becomes obvious. They have a list of ways things should be done.
“This was the case with Peter before he was broken. Remember the issue after Pentecost? You see, My Spirit wants to do a work on those who suppress the Spirit by holding fast to religiosity, rather than confessing human frailty. Those of the frailty un-confessed fail to see the wider vision. They are caught up with themselves, whereas those with the wider vision see they have to be dead men to fulfil what God has told them to do.
“What I have called thee to do involves a lack of human thinking that is replaced by day by day obedience. Ask out openly, ‘Hast thou grasped it? Hast thou understood?’ When I said to Peter, ‘Thou art the rock,’ it meant not him, not the human Peter, but the Peter dead to self. This is the rock on which the Church is built. For men no longer live, but Christ.
“Those of the suppression look constantly to pray; but those of the Spirit are as one in Christ, knowing to speak out His words, not their own. They know not to think from the human condition, for they have become as Christ (I John 4:17). They are partakers of the divine nature; & that being married to Me, they have given their all, confessing human frailty rather than suppressing it.
“Quench not the Spirit; the Spirit responds to confession of the frailty, rather than suppression of it. That is how revival always begins: when man is at the end of himself is the point where the heavens are rended.”
