True Spiritual Enlightenment 2

1 Corinthians 12:1 (YLT)
And concerning the spiritual things, brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant

Ikenna wanted to walk in the supernatural 'glory realm'. He was told that the way to go about this was by continuing in dry fasting until he sees angels ascending and descending. He continued in dry fasting for days without end, until he started seeing 'visions', but his mind was now unbalanced and people close to him were really disturbed by this because he was gradually losing his mind.

Ikenna got into the mess he found himself because of ignorance concerning spiritual things. In his quest to seek the supernatural power of God, he was not guided by the Spirit of Truth, so he came in contact with familiar spirits disguising themselves as angels of light. His motive was not purified. He wanted the power for the power's sake. He was not seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness but was merely seeking the power of God and its glory for fleshly reasons.

No one can truly seek the kingdom of God without seeking the righteousness of God. God is a person, and anyone that would walk in His mighty power must be close to Him. Those who walk in close fellowship with God must walk in His righteousness.

Spiritual gifts are not a product of your fastings, they would not be gifts if they were. It is ignorance concerning spiritual things that would make a believer seek gifts by exerting strenuous fasts and disciplines on himself.
Fasting is good and it helps to condition us to be filled with might and power, but fasting must be about seeking the face of God and not seeking gifts or even power.

Go into today remembering that God wants you to walk in His mighty power more than you want to. As you seek to walk in the kingdom and power of God, do not forget to also seek to walk in the righteousness of God.

Prayer: Lord, deliver me from all ignorance concerning spiritual things and help me to walk in your mighty power. Amen.
