GRADUATING FROM RELIGIOUS OPINION


BOB JONES QUOTE

"A definition of religion is legalism, opinion, debate, judgment and criticism. The Father is full of mercy and grace."

BOB JONES QUOTES

[1995 Vancouver, Canada @ Vineyard]


HOLY SPIRIT LEFT 40 YEARS AGO

"ÖNow for 40 years, the Spirit has been grieved with the churches in the states. {USA} In 1955 the Holy Spirit came to all the churches and there were some awesome signs throughout the world. And the Holy Spirit said, "Let Me come into the churches and be Lord over the church." And the churches said, "No thank You. We like the signs and the wonders and the miracles, thatís good. But we would like to handle it under our head." The Holy Spirit said, "OK Iíll see you in 40 years." That was in 55. That was 40 years. Itís time, the Holy Spirit is knocking on the door of the church and saying, "Let Me in. And if I come in and sup with you, Iíll show you how to do these things. So Christ can be exhibited to the nations."


"What you are building here is for youth. God is looking for builders especially in you youth, that you begin to touch the nations for Him. But you are not going to be doing it a churchy way. You are going to be doing it the Holy Spiritís way. For the churchís way has been the head way now for 40 years. God withdrew His glory and the church has lost ground. So you are going to have to do it the Holy Spiritís way. Heís the One that touches people."


OPINIONS

"You have no right to an opinion. Judgment, criticism, debate; you have no right. All those are religion. You have no right to debate. When you start debating with another Christian over something, you both lose. When you just in love say, "This is how I see it," and then leave it there, you donít have to debate it anymore. So many Christians think they have a right to an opinion."


"I remember once I had an opinion. And I gave it to the Lord. And He told me, I donít care for your opinion. I donít need it and I donít want it. So I just sorta kept it to myself. And then the Lord told me to go to {Name of city}." {Bob goes on to explain what happened when he went to that city. When he left, he asked the Lord a question:}


"Lord, there is something I need to talk to You about. You never told me that there was an anointing in {Name of city}. The Lord said, "I couldnít tell you what was going on in {Name of city}." Bob asked, "Why?" He said, "Because you had an opinion. I wont violate your opinion. I will tell you a bunch more if you get rid of your opinions." So if you people will get rid of your opinions, you will begin to hear and see."


FREEDOM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

"The bondwomanís son shall not reign. Those in bondage shall not reign. But those who are the freewomanís son, the sons and the daughters of the free church, they are those that shall reign. And they shall reign in laughter. And in joy. And in the Holy Spirit. And they shall be joined together, one to the other, as an army walks together."

PAUL CAINíS VISION

On July 21, 1989, Paul Cain had an open vision of a classroom where ministers of the Gospel were taking a test. Most of them failed. It was a final test of Charismatic renewal, and they would either graduate or have to take the same class over. They failed because they did not attend their classes and did not do their homework.


Paul has waited 35 years for the last day ministry. God sustained him through all those years by telling him that there would be a new breed of people that would not succumb to the same temptations of the failing ministers. The Lord promised him that Paulís Mom would not die until he stood in front of those new breed of men. She died In April 1990. Paul Cain later fell then went through a period of restoration into ministry.


============


HEARD: Foot in mouth. Carried away. Out of proportion. It IS out of proportion. Opinion. Judge. Criticize. Warning, pray over something before you release it. Opinions.


============


QUICKENED EXPERIENCE: Today, the huge box of labels fell out all over the floor. I was shocked at the parable concerning the Lord dealing with opinions, which are labels we place upon ourselves and others. He is turning our mindsets and opinions upside down!

WORD TO PONDER: GRADUATING FROM RELIGIOUS OPINION

I AM bringing a holy remnant out of the streams of pharisaical religion that is polluted with opinion, debate, legalism, judgment and criticism. Understand that when you see these fruits upon the lips of mankind, they do not represent My heart of mercy and grace. The head of religion has grown large due to demanding the headship of control. The church has suffered great loss and fallen due to her opinions. My Spirit is deeply grieved.


Those who have graduated in shaking off the bonds of religion, they shall be promoted in the gifts of My Spirit. But those chosen ones who have despised My workings and not left religion behind will find their exalted opinions turning to humble longings as they watch from the sidelines. It is through their humility that I shall reach them and change their hearts of stone to human flesh. I shall place within their hearts a hunger and thirst to experience My Presence.


"Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." (2 Cor 3:17 NKJV)


"Then the LORD said to Job, "Do you still want to argue with the Almighty? You are God's critic, but do you have the answers?" Then Job replied to the LORD, "I am nothing--how could I ever find the answers? I will put my hand over my mouth in silence. I have said too much already. I have nothing more to say." (Job 40:1-5 NLT)
