    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

Repeaters

  • The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea. When they arrived, they went into the Jewish synagogue. Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Acts 17:10 WEB

    The first mechanical repeater was a telegraph machine, but the practice was in use long before that. A repeater hears a signal and then repeats it verbatim. With the telegraph, someone tapped a signal at one end, and the repeater at the other end of the line reproduced that exact tap. In wireless networks today, repeaters are used to expand the coverage area, and each repeater says the same thing as the last one. It does not question the signal sent to it, but passes the message down the line just as it was received.

    For a season in my life, I was merely a repeater. I heard things at church or seminary that sounded good then repeated them as the gospel truth, and I would staunchly defend them. I am now embarrassed to say that at least forty percent of it was rubbish, traditions of men, and fairy tales. That is being polite, because it was probably more like sixty percent.

    There are so many pet doctrines floating around out there that have absolutely nothing to do with God. Jesus said in Mark 7:7 'In vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' I was taught commandments of men, and then I began teaching others the things that I had learned, just like they had then.

    Don't just be a repeater like I was. The more that I studied the Bible, the more rubbish that was revealed in my life. Listen to, or read the Bible for yourself. The Berean Christians received the word eagerly, but then searched the scriptures to see if it was true. If you do not know what is in the Bible, you will almost certainly be deceived.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You give me a hunger for Your Word. Stir up that desire in me and open my mind so that I can understand the scriptures. Help me discern what is from You, and what is not. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
