Literary Primary Source
People act on what they believe. Most religions have a primary book defining the fundamental doctrines. Christians look to the Bible to define the way the universe functions. Yet for many, basic theological doctrines is all they have understood. Yet, they speak out what they have with confidence.
Trust based on experience
Relationship is built on trust. An individual’s trust in God is substantiated by encounters of God. Often times, what they actually encounter isn’t necessarily God, but a Spirit-based transformation in the character of another.
Perception limits covered by grace
While growing in experience and knowledge is beneficial and desirable, God is able to use the influence of both inexperienced, uneducated, or perhaps both to impact others for His Kingdom. It’s like using the credibility of one of the longest-standing business’s in the history of an industry.
Creator-level teaching Capacity
Even in the case of a severely uneducated Kingdom individual, new revelation comes by God based on his present “divine intuitive learning capacity”. God teaches like no man can. He made us, and knows are past. His ability to enlighten His creation is dwarfs that of a wise and experienced elder or professor.
Experiential and Intellectual Input
God created us with a heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:37). Three categories show up here for me:
Soul (Self/Eternal Awareness)
Mind (Intellectual Comprehension)
Body (Biological Tangibility)
Wrestling With God
If your like me, The struggle to understand the nature of God is like trying to bend Steel with my fingers. But God realizes our frustration, and honestly reveals Truth at the level we can take it in at.
But as Jacob wrestled with the angel of the Lord in the desert, and God changed his name to Israel, meaning “wrestles with God”; don’t expect to sit on your present knowledge. God is infinite, and I expect to be learning and experiencing for the rest of eternity.
