THIS IS A RESEND OF A 2008 TEACHING SERIES TO RECALIBRATE YOUR DISCERMENT IN THIS HOUR!

(August 21, 2008)

Boqer Or (Good Morning Light)!

Shalom Friends,

We are experiencing a new level of Early Morning prayer and intimacy with Abba here in Israel.  Thus, the blast emails to you’all lately is the result of this new fountain breaking out!  Are you ready for more?  OK, here we go!!!

We have been studying the famous statement of the Messiah Yeshua about being wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16).  In this study we have examined the context of why Yeshua said this imperative command to his new disciples and we have also studied why we need to be on war footing to not be ensnared in the hidden traps of the enemy in this late hour.  I now want to give you a Scriptural key on how you can enter into the supernatural wisdom of God and always be ready for any ambushments the enemy may have planned for you .

In Proverbs chapter 1, we see that Solomon lists that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  This reverential fear is the foundation for all intimacy with Abba and is a very healthy check and balance to keep us on the path of His choosing.  However, the fear of the Lord has a dynamic that is not popular in today’s contemporary Christian culture.  And to activate this dynamic it requires a zealous choice in your emotions that will upset the politically correct crowd!  We see inProverbs 8:13, that actually the fear of the Lord is not just reverential respect of our Creator but also an emotional discharge of hate we must decide to walk in.  The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, pride, arrogance, and the perverted mouth!  I really think this is fascinating because the more we become like the scum of the earth and the dregs of all things (I Cor. 4:13), we actually allow ourselves to be flooded with His wisdom and shrewdness as we passionately hate evil!

Just as we are to love Him passionately with our whole meod (muchness), we are likewise commanded to passionately hate evil with our whole meod (muchness).  I believe this is the reason we have so many in the charismatic circles today that want to passionate love and serve Abba…yet can be so gullible and blinded!  If we do not have this same emotional passion directed towards evil, pride, and loose lips then we will still remain babes and never grow in the wisdom of God!

So the next time you release your emotions in a worship service because you just want to love Him so much…why not in the same manner release your emotions of hatred against evil, arrogance, and having a perverted mouth (see above photo of a spontaneous crushing of evil entertainments in a worship service in Europe)!  We have been taught to raise our hands and express jubilant dancing to glorify Him…so let us use this same passion to hate evil and have visible demonstrations of it!  (When was the last time you had an adult class on passionate hatred of evil?  Then think about starting one in your sector of responsibility and your only textbook is the Scriptures!)

I encourage you to look up this theme of radical actions of hatred towards evil in the Scriptures in your next quiet time and see what powerful miracles take place when believers do prophetic acts of justice out of their passionate hatred of evil!  (Hint- look up Rev. 2:26-29).

Enjoy this new key to having His wisdom imparted to us so we can be wiser than the serpent himself!

In His service for your faith,

Scott
