New Revelation Knowledge for 2013: How to receive God’s blessings?

(January 19, 2013)

We have been taught in the modern charismatic church to ask God for whatever we need, and that is certainly something that we can find in the word. “Ye have not because ye ask not.” (James 4:2)

There is however a translation problem that leads to a perception problem. The English word pray is derived from a root word meaning “to beg or to entreat,” while the Hebrew word להתפלל (hitpallel) comes from a verb meaning “to judge or correct


The bible mostly mentions this (“to judge or correct oneself”) as the correct approach to God. David refers to it repeatedly in his


“Who can understand his errors, cleans thou me from secret faults.” Psalm 14:12

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.” Psalm 14:19

“Search me, oh God, and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts, and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

So, the self correction thinking is more in line with the early (Hebrew cultured) church thinking. This thinking has also more humility, as opposed to the thinking, or mind-set, of blaming God or the devil for our problems. It is also not to be confused with

self-condemnation or self-accusation which is unscriptual. (Romans 8:1)

Paul writes (by the Spirit) about the importance of self examination and self correction in connection with taking communion.

“But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.” (1 Corinthians 11:28)

The problem is not to get God to do something for us, but rather to correct and align our lives so we can receive that which he has already provided for us.

God has already blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 1:3)

Constantly asking God, without self-correction, is an error and robs us of God’s best!

“Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith, prove your own selves,” (2 Corinthians 13:5)

So, when we pray we must first examine our hearts in the light of the Word and let the Spirit of God correct us. Then we can really call upon the Lord in faith, and he will surely answer us according to his word. (Jeremiah 33:3)

 Tell the people to get themselves untangled in their position of life, says the Lord. Untangle yourselves one tangle at a time with understanding that as you finish the process everything will be in order. Do not leave tangled messes in your life. For, if you do so you will be caught in them and taken captive by them.

I am bringing you through a time of testing and adjustments.  There are corrections to be made to your path of life, and those corrections will begin to bear fruit as soon as you let go of the things that have been a distraction and a hindrance to your progression.  You will now be able to see with greater clarity and understanding, says the Lord, as you walk in the Spirit.   

Proverbs 10:17 He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, but he who refuses correction goes astray.
