𝐓𝐄𝐋𝐋 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐓𝐑𝐔𝐓𝐇! 𝐀𝐋𝐖𝐀𝐘𝐒 – 𝐏𝐒 𝟑𝟒:𝟏𝟐-𝟏𝟑 | 𝐋𝐄𝐒𝐒𝐎𝐍 𝟏𝟕 | 𝐃𝐀𝐕𝐈𝐃 𝐀𝐃𝐄𝐍𝐈𝐉𝐈
Welcome once again to the Elapino platform. We’ve been looking at this series for almost 20 classes now. It’s ‘Come, Drink’! found in John 7:37. Which is what Elapino means..
In the last 3 classes, we started a sub-series right inside this series and we have seen that there are depths in the river. Our anchor scripture has been Ezekiel 47:2-6. The first level is the ankle level which is the feet level. And then in the last class, we looked at the knee level.
Remember that the ankle or feet level is compared with the scripture in Ezekiel 47:3
And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
And to explain what this ankle or feet level means, we flipped to Ephesians 6:15. Which says
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
That’s talking about evangelism. Talking about your very first spontaneous reaction when you get saved. That joy should be exercised continuously by sharing it with as many people as possible. Remember that the reason we’re treating all this is that the Bible shows us that there are depths in God.
We may look alike and congregate together, but we’re at different depths in God. Romans 11:33 confirms that to us in scriptures.
33] O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
This tells us that there are depths.
In other words, depths of wisdom and depths of knowledge. You do not get to certain depths in God, if you don’t sacrifice certain things. For example, the longer you stay with the word, the more you’re eager to hear from him, the deeper you go in Him, and the more of his ease, and grace you experience in Your Christian Life.
In this class, we’re looking at the third level. The third level of depth as seen in Ezekiel 47 verse 4
Again, he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
We’ve already seen that the knee level is the place of surrender as seen in Phillipians 2:10. We have dealt on that in the last class. We even said that your level of surrender can be seen in the way you talk. One who argues with men will argue with God, that’s if he even hears Him speak. The more you talk, the more you squander the grace and unction of God on you.
When you have to talk, let God speak through you. That was just one example.
Ezekiel 47:4b shows us the third level. The LOINS. Loins mean WAIST. The waist level. Hallelujah. I’d like you to soak in the presence of God right now. Soak it in because we’re moving deeper and deeper into the river. The water is now at our waist. Hallelujah. What does loins signify? Again, let’s interpret scripture with scripture. We move once again to our reference scripture in Ephesians chapter 6
Ephesians chapter 6:14 says.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Our focus in that scripture is the first part – Having your loins girt about with truth. So TRUTH is the third level of depth. The Loins/waist level is the level where TRUTH has taken over your being. Truth has taken over you. The Bible says in John 8:44 that Satan is the father of lies, but you are not of satan, you’re of Jesus. And the Bible says, Grace and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ, that’s John 1:17.
So Satan may be the father of lies, but Grace and TRUTH came from your own father – Jesus Christ. You’re for Jesus and not for Satan. Now you see we’re going deeper. When you see some Christian’s behave, please, don’t be surprised or dismayed. Don’t say I will not do business with Christian’s again because a particular Christian treated you in some bad manner. Some Christian’s are half baked, some are not baked at all, some are fully baked.
How baked they are is the depth we’re talking about here..
But bear in mind that the treatment you keep getting from people is a reflection of who you also are.
You can change the results you get from people by simply being the right person. If everyone in your line of profession exhibits a certain bad attitude, and you chose to be different, you can change the response you get from people just because of that, simply by being a different person among your colleagues.
Under every circumstance, you should aim to be like Jesus. Because grace and truth came by Jesus Christ, and you have already received His grace in salvation, please do not ignore the TRUTH nature of Jesus, accept that too and let truth be your lifestyle.
There’s a reward for that. Please, let’s go to Psalms 34:12 – 13
What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Sometimes you’re tempted to be deceitful. Please resist that temptation. The reward here is long life. Lord, we receive this grace in the Name of Jesus. It’s important you know that at this depth, you need grace for it, but that’s the extent to which you believe it and surrender to obey. Please speak the truth always.
The other aspect of this truth is also that it involves speaking God’s truth, God’s word against obvious negative situations. The Bible says in Romans 3:4 that ‘Let God be true and every man be a liar’. In other words, if God’s word says you are healed, then you are healed. You’d be a liar to think that you are still sick. In reality, you are not sick, you’re healed. Because God’s word is your reality, your truth. Please, make no mistakes.. When the doctor says you’re sick and the word says you are healed, then you’re healed. The Bible says, whose report will you believe? Please believe God’s report instead.
Don’t entertain any thoughts or pictures the devil shows you in your thoughts of dream, wake up and cancel them with the word. The Bible says you shall not die but live, that you may proclaim the glory of the Lord in the land of the living. I’m talking to someone. Is the devil planting negative thoughts into your brain or negative pictures into your dream. The Bible says He sent His word and healed you. Satan has failed over you in Jesus Name. The word wins. It is What God says that’s the truth. Don’t believe what the doctors say. When they diagnose negativity, reject it and say No, that’s not me, I’m healed.
Never let anyone stop you on the way and say young man/woman , I see a vision. If you perceive it’s not from God, Please politely shut them up, so they keep their visions to themselves. You have enough prophecies in the word and you have a glorious destiny in Christ. Don’t listen to news that forcast retarded growths. Switch off and tell them you don’t run with an earthly economy.
Don’t attempt to solve your problems from a completely physical point of view. Whatever issues that appear in your life have a spiritual undertone.
In conclusion, here’s what the LOINS OF TRUTH signify.
First, speak the truth always, because truth is in your spiritual DNA.
Secondly, speak God’s truth against every negative situation. Let God be true and every man be liars. Believe and follow God’s word and not man’s diagnosis.
That’s it for the third level of depth.
Father, we thank you. We receive grace for truth. There’s a reward for it in Psalms 34:12. You have promised us a length of days. We receive grace to get to this depth and stay there. From today, truth remains our lifestyle in Jesus Name. When the bible says we’re healed, we healed. No disease can threaten this truth. The Bible says we shall not die, but live, sono power can cut us short in Jesus Name. The Bible says you’re the one who trains our hands to make profit. We believe your word and we see your manifestations in our lives in Jesus Name. Amen.
If you have not come to the truth, you need to come today. Jesus is the truth. His arms are wide open to receive you. Say Lord Jesus, Grace and truth came by you. So I receive grace and I receive truth. I repent of my sins and I accept you as my Lord and saviour. Thank you for saving me. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name we have prayed. Amen. I’m clapping for you already and I’m sure heaven is also doing the same. Please continue in God’s word day and night. Attend a good church where the word of God is peached and Jesus reigns. Thank you for staying tuned.
We meet again in the next class by God’s grace. In Jesus Name, Amen.
