Ignorance and Awareness!
“To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
In Christendom, there are different categories of Christian; some are to be fed with the milk of the word (Ignorance) while some are to be fed with strong meat (awareness). Because this is the first stage in Christian life, at this stage, one cannot tell from his left to right; all things are like a child play at this stage. God recognizes this stage.
Acts 17:30 says, “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him.” So, the times of this ignorance, God winked at… Means God can overlook the time of ignorance; that is when you first got saved as a Christian. That is why Jesus Christ prayed for his persecutors earnestly on their ignorance, saying, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke.23.34.
However, after the stage of ignorance, comes the time of awareness, where you are conscious of the person of the Holy Spirit. Because apostles recognize this stage, that explains why Ananias and Sapphira drop dead at the revelation of Peter and the apostles because they have come into the awareness of the person of the Holy Spirit, yet they chose to lie to Him.
Therefore, if you are on this stage of awareness of the word of God in your heart, then you should not allow the ignorant of others about the things of God to ruin the plan of God for you. Hebrew 10:26 says, “For if we sin willfully after that, we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remained no more sacrifice for sins.” This stage, you don’t need anyone to tell you what to do because you are aware that the spirit of God that knows all things has dwelled in you. Heaven has witnessed that “you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.” 1 John 2:20.
1. Pray with all fervency, that Holy should help you to walk into the consciousness of the spirit of God in you.
2. In the name of Jesus, by the greatness of power in the Holy Ghost, God will turn the captivity of your ministry, business, and career into fortunes; He will catapult you into a greater height this year in the name of Jesus. Psalm126:4.
