The Witness of the Spirit...Combating Doubt.......deno.......share freely.

      When you know the Lord you need not others to approve or disapprove this knowing whether you know him or not. When His Spirit is in you you know this. His Spirit bears witness with our spirits that we are the children of God. This is an inward witness, and a inward verification from the Spirit of the Lord to and within our hearts that we are his and he is ours.... When that witness and that verification is real to you, other voices or other approvals we need not fetch. For My Sheep Jesus said hear my voice and I am known by them. This inward witness we speak of, it is as sure and clear to you as the knowing you have in your spirit or in your heart of whether you are married or not. It is that clear..
     Howbeit, in the mind which is often times the target and play ground of the father of lies and the prince of doubt and deceptions, if he can draw your attention out of the Spirit and into the flesh senses and flesh feelings and circumstances, and get you to start to interpret spiritual things and spiritual truth by what the flesh dictates to us and other wrong persuasions, if he can get us defining heavenly things and heavenly truths by what our flesh tells us, he can then cause even some of the most Spirit filled people that have ever lived to doubt truths, to question their true grace experiences, and things that are already established and true....
      Listen carefully.....Remember with me how John the baptist, how he was filled the Holy Spirit of God  from his mothers womb. He was so in tuned to the Spirit of the Lord that he lived a great sanctified life from his childhood because he knew, and he was fully sure in his heart that he was indeed GOD CALLED and God anointed. He even knew that the scriptures spoke of him and his calling and ministry and its purpose and knew exactly where all that light was in the scriptures about him and his calling. He knew he was the voice of the one crying out in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of the Lord, make a straight path for his entrance. And also John was taught from his childhood by the Holy Ghost all he was to do and preach. He even knew the voice of the Lord. The voice of the Lord told him one day, When you see the heavens open and the Spirit of God descending like a dove upon a man and remaining upon him, THAT IS MY BELOVED SON THAT YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING ON. "PROCLAIM HIM".....
      All that glory and grace happened to John just like Gods Spirit told him and taught him THAT IT WOULD. Then just a few months later after seeing, hearing, and experiencing those mighty grace events, Satan came against John and was messing with Johns head thru an arrest and thru threatening circumstances. This, the greatest Spirit filled prophet of the old testament (Jesus said that of John) that even exceeding in his calling importance above  Moses' pulpit, John the baptist, John was so negatively effected by the voices of the circumstances that had come against him and by the voices and the whisperings of the devil to his mind zone of his being, John, this most Spirit filled man and prophet of the old testament,  HE BEGAN TO HAVE GIGANTIC DOUBTS IN HIS MIND ABOUT JESUS BEING THAT PROMISED ONE though John had the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God alive and dwelling in his heart  since he was in the womb and had great visions and visitations from the Lord who called him. (THIS MY FRIENDS SPEAKS TO US VOLUMES). 
        You see, by all these attacks of the devil, John was lured out of the Spirit where the true and divine witness had been teaching all things to John and got him over into the flesh and into the upper region of the mind by the application of anxiety works, and hardships, and threatenings, and that my friends is the devils delight and play ground where he is a master at making even the most Spirit filled people like John was to doubt God and even question doubtfully their own experiences of GREAT LEVELS OF GRACE...Even after all those visions of great visual witness that he saw, and even after hearing the voice of God clearly speak that Jesus just a few months earlier in the Jordan was GODS SON, John in prison with his head so full of demonic attacks against his peace, sent some of his follower to to ask Jesus afresh. Are you really the One or are we to look for another?..... 
       Friends, the more we really walk in the Spirit, the more we will hear God and experience for ourselves more of His inward Presence in us and with us and for us. But if Satan can get us over in the flesh and in the natural mind, he will certainly start toying with our heads and we could become as double minded and not sure about our salvation, our callings, what is divine truth,  and even wonder about the great grace experiences that God has given us as He did John the baptist. So do, obey, and stick with what the Word and Spirit of Jesus has said and you will be where Jesus is. Jesus is the Word. Amen....deno......share freely.
