Daily Bread 9/10/2022


    Daily Bread – September 10, 2022 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) 1 Corinthians 14:15 – What shall be done? I will pray with the Spirit and will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the Spirit and will sing with the understanding also. The Proper Order For Church Meetings The things pertaining to the Kingdom of God and the working of the Holy Spirit are supposed to be taught to us in Church. Unfortunately, in many places, prayer is a very small part of the activities of the “house of prayer.” Rarely, will you find anyone who yields the meetings to the Holy Spirit in such a way that the people are not only praying in the Holy Spirit, but also singing in the Holy Spirit. Instead, we find many who want to argue about form and style. Even worse, doctrines of men have set themselves against the prayer and praise of the Spirit in God’s Church – calling it out of order. They argue that there needs to be an interpreter, and that it is offensive and a stumbling block. We hear much about man-made order and an interpreter, but very little about someone praying in the Holy Ghost and also praying with the understanding also. In so doing, many Church services end up with very little manifestation of the Spirit and the Kingdom of God in their meetings. Men so grieve the Holy Spirit with their hardness of heart that they have no tongue, no interpreter, and no manifestation of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:7-11). The order of the Church has been man-made order for so long that the order of the Holy Ghost is not even recognized – and even worse is despised. It is high time we repent of our sensual and self-serving doctrines, and turn back to God. We must allow the fires of the Holy Spirit to burn bright once again in the assembly of the saints. We must throw down the idols of self-will, and allow the Holy Spirit to take control of our lives individually – and as a result our Church meetings as well. Then, our obscurity and defeat will be driven back, and the light and life of Jesus will once again shine bright in a world of sin and darkness. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
