The gospel of you know that you know that you know?


In my desire to help people to know what our word of God says so they can know with more certainty what our gospel says, I have observed a common theme.  This theme is you know that you know that you know and this is good enough.  Basically they advocate scripture is just to complex to know and that God doesn’t want us to understand everything anyway.  They are content not to understand scripture, even if it leaves them with a conflicted gospel because of the Compete Word of God syndrome found in Armin and Calvin.

But I have to ask if you know that you know that you know is really good enough?  After all Mormons who trust Jesus as their savior know that they know that they know.  So do the Jehovah Witnesses who trust Jesus as their savior.  So if the gospel of you know that you know that you know is good enough, why not end up in a Mormon church with those who know that they know to worship or any other claim to Christ faith?  That is if the gospel you know that you know that you know is any gospel at all.

Why not because it is more than just knowing that you know, it is about doctrine.  Those who say this acknowledge by their actions knowing that you know is not good enough.  They draw the line on doctrinal issues and don’t worship with others who know that they know too.

But what is really at the heart of the issue?  The people of God are not willing to take the time to study and pray to receive a clearer understanding of God’s word.  I believe Paul would be greatly disappointed with this mindset in God’s people.  After all he is the one who in scripture prays for the spirit of understanding for the saints.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.  I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,[1]

Paul fully anticipates believers to do something with the deposit of the Holy Spirit we boast we have.  He fully expects us to listen to the Holy Spirit to instruct in God’s word.  We must remember Paul and those others did not have a Compete Word of God, they had the Complete Word of God.  So why would a believer, who boast of the Holy Spirit, reject the very clarity the Holy Spirit can bring to scripture?

Paul is not alone in his expectation of the Holy Spirit teaching us.  I have to believe what John wrote to the early church, he would write to us today.  Both men of God expect the believer to have the relationship, we all brag we have, and have the Holy Spirit teach us.  The question for the believer is this, why is not the Holy Spirit teaching you things if the anointing you received is not counterfeit?  Why settle for the gospel of you know that you know to gloss over the Compete Word of God?

As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him.[2]

Why wait for some man, even myself, to explain something to you.  Let the Holy Spirit teach you.  Be aware that you will be ridiculed by the church for taking this position.  I have.

Because I actually believe this scripture, I was told it was the “epitomy of arrogance“,  (August 8th comment) that I actually believe the Holy Spirit teaches me His word.  But I believe my anointing is real.  I thought that used to be called faith?

However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him“–but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.  For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.  We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.[3]

I am sorry to all those I offend, but my God has told me in scripture that I can know all things because the Spirit who is my anointing searches all things, even the deep things of God.  If I have the Spirit of God in me then why be surprised that I believe I can have the Complete Word of God.  Why would any of us who lets the Holy Spirit teach us in His word expect anything less?  Instead we are expected to learn from men and not the Holy Spirit. 

So what is it for you believer, do you know that you know to gloss over the Compete Word of God or do you know that you know that you know because the Holy Spirit has taught you the Complete Word of God?

  1. amen and amen; yet, I m not familiar with your term compete word of god; but then that is neither here nor there;
    what is important, along with the aforementioned Pauline passage; is that Jesus no one comes to the father but by me. and again, Paul; “If you confess with your mouth the lord jesus and believe in your HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD,you shall be saved.
    Gods word explains and interprets itself, as you have articulated, through the anointing of the Holy Spirit; HALLUEJAH HALLUEJAH !!!!!!!!

    • Elcafe37,

      Thanks for dropping by, I hope my sight challenges you and encourages your faith.

      What I was contrasting was the Compete Word of God with the Complete word of God. The difference is men have split scripture into two, Armin and Calvin.

      I contend they do this because they have not recognized the gospel Paul preached. As crazy as it sounds it is true. We have Paul preaching in the last chapter of Act from the Law of Moses and the prophets. When I advocate that gospel it tends to upset people. Yet it is what is written in our gospel about what we have in Christ. It is not the Law or certain days of observance I am talking about, I reject all of that. But it is our gospel of hope that somehow we just do not see.

      But I believe with all my heart if we accept what Paul and others preached from the Books of Moses and the prophets, gone is the struggle between Calvin and Armin and we would have the Complete word of God.

      I further frustrate people that my confidence in what I truly believe the Holy Spirit has taught me in His word is true. Meaning man’s wisdom is wrong and people take offense to this.

      I hope you hang around and check out some of my older stuff and engage in the conversation concerning The Gospel According to the Gospel.

      • Yeah, I keep finding out how upset people get when you tell them you can rely on God to do what man can do. It doesn’t seem to matter how nice you are about it either. They just flip the switch and in their minds, you’re gone. Problem is, I’m still standing there with the Holy Spirit and a cheese eatin grin on my face!
        Folks don’t want to see the complete God. They only want a God of love who overlooks all your faults, not a God of wrath or a jealous God or a God who still expects you to abide by His Law (not Pharasaical Law) and that’s what the New Testament churches are preaching today. Paul puts a crimp in that doesn’t he? He’s always getting people’s shorts in a jumble! Ha!
        Just one thing dude. Is it your site or your sight? And if it’s your sight, don’t you mean it’s His sight? Forgive me, I couldn’t resist. 🙂

        • Quick nurse, we have a live one here.

          Yeah, unfortunately it appears that we will be persecuted not just by the system of the beast in these last days, but the church too. Are you ready to go down like Stephen? Rome and those who say they serve God will be after us.

  2. I have no theological training…at all….only because that was not my experience.
    Everything I know and understand has come from the Holy Spirit as teacher. Under His teaching, one finds clarity in scrripture…with no contradition.

    Bless your heart for opening your heart to His teaching. After all…who can better explain what God meant by what God said.

    • I too do not have a background in theological training. But I am sure like you, I would rather be known as someone who people took note of the fact that had been with Jesus.

Give me a piece of your mind, let me know what you thought.
