Daily devotional: the sword of the Spirit; beyond the letters 1


(Beyond the letters 1)

2 Corinthians 3:6

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Now we've established that the sword of the Spirit is the spoken Word of God, used in the offensive for the pulling down of strong holds to spread the kingdom of God on earth. It's important to understand that before you can firmly wield the sword of the Spirit to do real damage, you must be filled in you, with the Word of God so much so that He has His home in you (Col. 3:16). You need to realise that you can't speak the Word if you don't have knowledge of the Word in you. 

What were talking about is beyond letters of the Bible. It's beyond letters of scriptures. Because this is where many people have missed it. People mistake the Word of God, for letters of the scriptures. So because they hear somebody quote many portions of the scripture, they assume the person is "Worded". That's a carnal assumption.

We understand from our key verse that we have been qualified as ministers of the new covenant, not according to the letter, but according to the Spirit, because the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. So we must understand that in the fulfillment of our ministry here on earth, we can't afford to walk by the letter (which kills) in place of the Spirit (from whom comes the Word). 

You may be thinking that the letter is the law, but no. That's not it. Tomorrow we'll do a proper analysis on "THE LETTER", so as to understand how to function properly. Remain on the Word through the Holy Spirit and scriptures. You're blessed.

If you're not born again, say this prayer and mean it. "Dear Father, I believe in Jesus Christ as your Son, who came to earth, died for me on the cross and rose again. I confess that He is Lord of my life. Thank you for saving me. I receive eternal Life,I receive your Spirit into me. Thank you Lord for I'm born again". You're blessed. -TCF
