Use Your Third Ear

"Come to Me and listen! Attune yourself to My voice, and receive My richest blessings." (281)
Years ago when I was in graduate school, training to become a counselor, the Lord revealed a most powerful insight to me. He clearly told me, "Use your third ear...the one in the center of your heart!" Which suddenly made sense to me...H"EAR"T !!
Whenever I am in a counseling session, it is critical to listen carefully to the client, but at the same time I can listen with my third ear to hear what God is saying. It's like having another counselor in the room...His Holy Spirit...giving insight beyond the obvious, beyond training, beyond human wisdom.
Revelation 2 & 3 often repeats the challenge that "anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says." Our devotional today talks about "the wonder of communing with the Creator of the universe!"
I marvel at the ways His Spirit leads in awesome, freeing Truth!

  1. ARE INFANTS, THE UNBORN, AND YOUNG CHILDREN SINNERS? BY STEVE FINNELL
    Are infants, unborn children, and young children sinners? Of course they are not sinners. To believe that you would have to believe the false doctrine of original sin. There is no Biblical evidence that men are now nor were they ever guilty of Adam's sin. Men die physically because of Adam's sin. Men die spiritually because the the sins they themselves commit.


    Romans 9:11 (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil......(NKJV)

    The unborn cannot commit evil.

    Deuteronomy 1:34-39 ......39 'Moreover your little ones and your children, who you will be victims, who today have no knowledge of good and evil, they shall go in there; to them I will give it, and they shall possess it. (NKJV)

    The Lord does not punish children for the sins of their fathers nor for the sin of Adam.

    Isaiah 7:14-16 ...Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. 15 "Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16. "For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.(NKJV)

    Even Jesus had an age of accountability. Jesus had to reach an age where He knew right from wrong before He could be charged with committing sin. Infants, the unborn, and small children have to reach a certain age before they can be guilty of sin. Jesus was not guilty of Adam's sin nor did He Himself commit sin.

    The doctrine of original sin and infant baptism is a man-made tradition.

    Matthew 18: 2-3 ..."Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter into the the kingdom of heaven. (NKJV)

    Certainly Jesus was not saying you have to be guilty of original sin like these children to enter into heaven. Little children are not guilty of Adam's sin nor any other kind of sin.

    Hebrews 2:10-17....17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. (NKJV)

    In order to believe the false doctrine of original sin you would have to believe that Jesus was guilty of Adam's sin and therefore a sinner from birth. Jesus had to made like us in every respect.

    Jesus was born like us all. NOT GUILTY OF ADAM'S SIN NOR ANY OTHER SIN.

    Men are only guilty of the sins they themselves commit at the point when they can distinguish good from evil. Yes, there is an age of accountability.

    You can believe the false doctrine of original sin and of children sinners that is written in man-made creed books or you can believe God's word as recorded in the Bible.

  2. Hood morning Marie :) Each morning, during my hour drive to work, my time is spent in intamate conversation with Abba Father. Upon parking at my office I ask The Father to "Glorify Your Son in and through me!" One day Abba responded "Keep our conversation going continually, in the midst of all other conversations." At first this was difficult, so many distractions. After several months of prrsistance it is becoming my default means of overall communication - me comunicating with Abba while simultaneously coversing with others. Decision making is full of amazing wisdom - not mine but God's. The results are the manifestation of "Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be doth..: the. I am in awe of how close God is, to involve Himself in my everday dealinhs, as I yeild my Will, life, pride to Him - trusting Him and His instructions each day. Lastly: I am truly learning what the scripture means "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Isa 55:8. Ot is SO much better to live guided by His thoughts. Have a Christ minded day :) Pastor Mark
