Doing Journey Together is conducting a spiritual ground school which is supposed to take a candidate from day one to the final test which is the solo flight. And the license of Pilot in the Spirit is conferred. Today, let me review where we began six days ago, Flight test was the introduction and initiation. Following that for those choosing to enter the program, because we were taken to the end of the runway and called the Tower for permission to take off. Can you imagine? Anyway, the objective of taking the flight school candidate to the point of go-no go makes for a good initial challenge. Do you feel you are yet ready to take off in the Spirit?
Spiritual flight is a life-long learning experience, and to relive our initial flight test as a testimony, can help restore our vision for our progress into the supernatural realm which is where this has to be going for us.
Next, consider the Navigation of the many changes that a new flight path has to require. New directions, lifestyle, world view are each applied to the initial approach of entering the fellowship of spirit-craft pilots to become able to lift off into the heavenlies.
Fire then became a word study that helped us to see something of the anointing that exists to bring unity to the Body of Christ (Messiah). An expression of the power of God within us to grant His grace for our becoming empowered in Him to do all that he has called us to do.
Like Expectation was the class to show something of how faith in a loving God can offer us security when considering such radical journeying. Just entering into the holy sanctuary in reality can be challenging for the novice.
Attitude was yesterdays, piece. I was inspired to boldly present for our ground school trainees with a focus on how our attitude can be led astray by expressions like, ‘I am not religious, but I believe in God.’ Here is a dangerous statement. It is an attempt to sound like humility. It is saying that ‘I am not so heavenly minded that I am no earthly good.’ But that is not exactly biblical either. The texts shown in yesterday’s post are clear.
Today can be a small step beyond the attitude indicator which is on the instrument control panel of our spirit-craft. The centering of our motion through the (spiritual) air is similar to flight in that our inertia is the momentum that our life is gaining maturity. (Inertia is defined as “The property of a body that resists any change to its uniform motion; equivalent to its mass.” Wicktionary) That we subject our bodies to this can be something we must experience to fully understand.
An example of how a spiritual heart-mind body is subject to spiritual forces that tend to pull us out of our straight and level flight. The enemy and all of his minions are always resisting through temptations, through sin, and the sting of death. For “the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy” us. (John 10:10) And this gives us the idea of the purpose of God’s word is to keep us on the straight and level. We have to learn what the Bible says about living in the Spirit to give us spiritual flight control. For centering our life in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yeshua Ha-Meshiach) and not trusting in man — is literally the center verse of the Holy Bible. (Psalms 118:8) Or the central verses are Psalm 103:1 and 2, can our hearts see how centering there is helpful?
Centering in the Spirit in our spiritual ground school may be more significant because we are helpless without Him. How do we learn to tell our flight path is to turn here and turn there, or to fly through a storm or fly around? Our Lord tells us about how he has sent to us Another Comforter. For he would not leave his disciples comfortless, but has given us the Spirit of Truth. What the Spirit gives to be comforted by is the Word of God. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man (or woman) of God may be perfect (centered) throughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
2 Timothy 2:15 tells us, “Study to show yourself approved unto God a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly discerning the word of God.” This is the centering point: Applying the teachings of our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) and his anointed apostles. Such as taking seriously each and every part of the Holy Bible, because it is given to us by the Comforter. It will not change, it is a worthy refuge. It is our tower that we run into and are safe. Can we learn it? Can we apply it to our life? It will center our life.
Our spirit-craft then needs to have a fully functional inertial navigation unit that powers the turn and slip (bank) indicator. Look at how there is a ball in the center of the smiling window. When we are in spiritual flight, we need to know when the external forces that are affecting the attitude of our spirit-craft, we can know how to correct and compensate for it, and overcome. Piloting in the spirit is a thrilling experience, especially when you can hear your Comforter who keeps you on the straight and narrow.
