December's Spirit

Blessings, Family. As we reflect on this past year of Monthly teachings you will find the Father has had you in mind. I am so thankful that God used me in anyway that glorified Him. As John said; Above all things I would that you prosper in all things. Let me encourage you to continue a lifestyle in the Word. Do all that you can to continue your spiritual growth.

As a Pastor I know that there are Sheep, and Lambs, some will drink milk and others will eat Meat. Everyone is not on the same spiritual level, nor does everyone have the same spiritual appetite and thirst for the things of God. We must recognize and accept that we just may be a little different from others. Just as the Father allowed us to get there let us continue to do the same for others. In the October's teachings you were asked to forward your e-mail address, your home address, your name and title, and a contact number if you desired to continue receiving the monthly teachings. For some of you this will be the last Monthly teaching that you will receive from Pastor Shana.

Fear Not for God will send laborers to do the work. May God bless you richly and may you prosper from December's Spirit. Enjoy your study. It is time to study and show your selves approved in the things of the Spirit. The understanding of the spirit realm, spiritual warfare, and spiritual gifts are all needed. How do you get this understanding? By Seeking God, reading and studying the Word of God, cross-referencing the scriptures, checking your Greek and Hebrew, and seeking the Godly council of your Leaders. It is so important to understand that you are a spirit, and what it is that your spirit does. Your spirit is what God uses to speak to you. Your spirit belongs to Him. It is your spirit man that will live throughout eternity. It is up to you to seek out and understand the things of God. We are use to using our souls and our bodies to survive in this world.

But in this hour we must begin to exercise the use of our spirit man if we are to survive spiritually. We can do nothing without The Holy Spirit, He is a guide, a reveler of all truth, He lives on the inside of us. The Holy Spirit also must be understood, known and excepted so that we can utilize all that He has to offer. Get to know Him, spend time with Him, talk to Him, and learn to follow the leading of Him. We must acknowledge Him in all that we do. Who is He to you? Are you intimate with Him? If you are to operate with Power in the things of God it only comes after the Holy Ghost has come upon you. Remember it is His not ours that destroys yokes. Please look up the scripture references so that you can say the Bible says and not Pastor Shana says. Amen? As you muse and meditate on this study know that God is going to take you from glory to glory. Set your mind to learn more about Him in the up coming year. Know that It is His Spirit, His Power, and you are His.

Zech. 4:6 (KJV) Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Acts 1:7-8 (KJV) And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
