The Holy Spirit: The Text Plus the Holy Spirit
So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain.—Ezekiel 33:31
When you are trying to find out the condition of a church, do not just inquire whether it is evangelical. Ask whether it is an evangelical rationalistic church that says, “The text is enough,” or whether it is a church that believes that the text plus the Holy Spirit is enough….
I would rather be part of a small group with inner knowledge than part of a vast group with only intellectual knowledge. In that great day of Christ’s coming, all that will matter is whether or not I have been inwardly illuminated, inwardly regenerated, inwardly purified.Faith Beyond Reason, 30,32.
“I too, Lord, ‘would rather be part of a small group with inner knowledge than part of a vast group with only intellectual knowledge.’ Fill us with Your Spirit and Your presence today. Amen.”
