(Walk By Accurate Knowledge!)
TO THE BIBLE: Hosea 4:6 NIV
“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.”
Applying accurate knowledge of God’s Word is indispensable if you must live a successful and victorious life in Christ. God said my people are destroyed, not because satan is powerful, or because they don’t pray much, but because of their lack of revelation knowledge, for not applying accurate knowledge of the Word. Don’t assume the Bible says something that you haven’t verified. Give yourself to diligent study of the Word and apply yourself to doing what the Lord wants as shown in His Word.
The account of Cain and Abel in Genesis chapter 4 is very enlightening in this regard. The Bible says Abel’s offerings were accepted, while Cain’s offerings were rejected, not because God preferred meat to vegetables, but because Cain didn’t offer his sacrifice according to knowledge; he gave God what he chose to give without considering what he was supposed to give. Abel gave God the “first fruits” (the first and the best) as required, and the Lord honoured his offering.
This is just like some Christians today; there’re things we like to do, but there’re things we’re instructed by the Word of God to do. What God wants, first and foremost, is that which He asked you to do. Do what His Word instructs and not what you like to do. Learn to function by revelation knowledge always.
1 Samuel 2:3; Proverbs 11:9; Ecclesiastes 7:12
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for enlightening my heart with the revelations of your Word and granting me insights into the realities of the Kingdom. I apply accurate knowledge of your Word today in all my dealings, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
