THREE LEVELS OF KNOWLEDGE
* people that don't know; and
* people that are lazy to do what they know.
Today, I want to deal with the first problem ― ignorance. If you are in that category, I want you to meditate on this message continually until you internalize it. "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" John 8:32.
The height to which you can grow to in life, depends on what you know. Ignorance is what will hinder you from getting whatever you have desired in life. Knowledge is what separates the weak from the mighty; the rich from the poor; and winners from losers. The highest level of knowledge you have will determine the kind of results you will get from life.
THREE LEVELS OF KNOWLEDGE
1. SENSE KNOWLEDGE:
Any human being that has their five senses working can access this first level. Most of the knowledge that form and govern human life, operates at this realm. People that operate in this realm are natural men. If all you can see is with your physical eye, then you are blind. If your ear is the only instrument you have for hearing, then you are really deaf. Discussions are going on now around the world but once you have the right receiver (cable TV, satellite decoder, mobile phone, etc.) you can decode it and give your ear mind-boggling abilities. We live in a world full of limitations.
I have done several intensive studies on men that have shaped the world. Several of them were inventors or were notable for some great accomplishment. What amazes me about these men are that they usually have the ability to look beyond the senses into a higher dimension ― REVELATION.
2. REVELATION KNOWLEDGE:
Revelation is hearing, touching, and seeing the intangible. In the Bible, when Jesus says "Let him that has an ear hear , ", He's referring to this level of insight. If you can see the invisible, you can do the impossible. It is perceiving what is not obvious. The realm of creativity, inventions, prophesy, etc. operates beyond the physical level. The spiritual world is more real than the physical world.
If you cannot step beyond your head, reasoning or emotion, you will not go far in life. When you wake up on Sunday morning and your emotion tells you that you cannot make it to church, forget it, it’s a lie. Why do things like this happen? Because in the physical world there is a lot of deception.
For example, If you see someone shivering at room temperature, there is something wrong. But with your natural eye even if the person is cut open, you won't see anything. Yet over time, doctors who have believed in the invisible, trust that if they can inject something into the person's blood that will exercise dominion over the sickness. That invisible thing causing the sickness, they now call pathogens.
The brain is divided into compartments. There is the right brain that operates in the level of revelation knowledge. This is the part of the brain inventors develop. While the left brain is what deals with the sense knowledge. This is what formal education develops.
People that become wealthy are people that can tap into the intangible. This is what people like the Jews have discovered. Real wealth is portable. The spiritual world controls this physical realm. And for any invisible phenomenon that men decode, they give it a name e.g. radio waves, bacteria, etc. The parts of the invisible they haven't yet decoded remains a mystery to them. In the past, such mysteries were revered as gods e.g. thunder, rain, giant trees, etc.
If Africa will develop, we have to move more of our people to this level of knowledge. Africa is still at the bottom of the world economic chart because for ages Africans have operated at the level of the things they can see. E.g. Congo DRC signed agreements during their struggle for independence, that everything below six feet was for the Belgians while things above that level were for the indigenes. Fifty years later, DRC Congo which for decades has been the world's richest producer of diamonds and other important natural resources in the world yet her indigenes still living in squalor. A big regret for generations to come.
A lot of things happen to people whose spiritual eyes are blind. The eye that sees the invisible is on your inside. In the realm of the spirit, your physical eyes are like a mere decoration. It takes people that can tap into the unseen to create products,
There are a lot of things hanging in the spiritual realm but many of us don’t know how to download it.
The reason for the entrance of the Holy Spirit in your life is to give you the ability to ascend on high.
3. SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE:
This is the third and highest level. This is the level where people's lives are changed totally. This level occurs at the Throne Room, at the Mercy Seat, in the Presence of God. This is the form of knowledge that feels like eating in the spiritual realm not just learning.
Moses' Tabernacle had three levels of light:
1. Outer court: - the illumination here is the sunlight, this symbolizes the natural realm/senses.
2. Holy Place: the illumination here is from the seven lamp-stands, this symbolizes the illumination that comes from the spirit of man ignited by God's spirit.
3. Holy of Holies: the illumination here is the Shekinah glory, this symbolizes knowledge through intimacy with God. The only compares of this kind of communion in our physical world is sex.
This is the experience. When you move into the holy place, away from the distractions of the would you can be able to see the glory of God. This is the Shekinah glory of God. In this level, spiritual energy is infused into you and without the natural way of assimilating knowledge. This level fixes the truth into your spirit.
Any area of your life where you are deficient in, do a fast in that area. E.g. There is what is called a Jesus fast. Cut off all distractions and start searching for Jesus. You can go to the Old Testament and search for all occurrences of Him. As you do this, you will discover Christ in a new dimension. You can do a Holy Spirit fast, a wisdom fast, or whatever. What fasting does is to remove the tares for the seed to grow. It is like preparing a forest for a fresh planting season.
Do you want to know Jesus, then feast on Him. This is more than hearing a sermon or reading a book.
The key to the third level is COMMUNION. This is what we demonstrate when we come to the communion table. It is similar to what mosquitoes and witches do ― suck blood. But this time, we are sucking the life of the Father into your spirit. What happens is that this thing flows into your being like waves, radiation. When it enters you, your life changes. This is the same thing that Paul meant in 2nd Corinthians 3:18 "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
This was what Moses experienced when he was with the Principal not just the principles for 40 days. The Word is a person. Feasting on Him is how you produced men that know God (men that are carriers of God's presence) not men that know about God.
Dan 11:32 " … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits."
Holy Spirit, I want to know you. I want to be one with you. The scripture says that if I'm joined with the Lord, I shall be one Spirit with you. I want intercourse and union with you. I want to experience you feeling my being. Take me to that realm of fellowship, friendship, oneness, koinonia and communion with you. To know you is the greatest treasure of life. Open my eyes to know you, to know my savior and to know my father.
Open my eyes that I might see. Open the eyes of my understanding. Give me the illumination that comes from inside, that eye that can discover and create things. Give me that eye that can discern and understand . Give me that inner eye that can see beyond what is obvious and key into opportunities. Anoint me with the spirit of wisdom and revelation.
Father, break the bread of life. Let all of us experience communion by feeding from the substance of your being. Cause us to rise to the realm where we live by you and your life manifests in our whole being and world. I want more of you and none of me, in Jesus' name.
