KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 5:12 KJV” For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”
What kind of food do you take? Are you taking milk or strong meat? Our key scripture says, there are some of us who instead of becoming teachers to teach others, are still infants who must be taught the very first principles of Christ. It says these people are still being given milk instead of strong meat. Babies cannot teach Others. Why are these people still babies who demand soft or liquid foods? Apostle Paul talks about such people in 1st Corinth 3:2 this way ,” I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able” .He calls these people carnal because they allow their flesh to dictate to them
My question is why do some Christians still remain as babies even after so many years of hearing God’s word? PLEASE GET THIS EXPLANATION. THE MILK OF THE WORD ARE THOSE WHO HEAR GOD’S WORD AND DO NOT APPLY IT. Little children who take milk don’t do any work, so if you don’t work with what you are receiving, then you are taking milk. Listen to what the Bible said about those who take meat. Hebrews 5:14 KJV “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Those who take strong meat have been using the word and so their senses have been exercised to know what is spiritual and carnal. These statements Imply, if you are not applying God’s word in your daily lives, then you are a user of milk.
THOSE who use milk, that is Christians who do not act on God’s word become easy prey to the devil. Satan is the God of this world. He has the systems of this world under his control. The only way to live outside his influence although you are in this world is to always act on the word of God. Satan cannot in any way control the man or woman who does not submit to his instruction. He cannot afflict you with diseases, bad habits, lack and any of his works if you always live according to the word. (The diseases may come but you would always overcome them) Refuse to be a baby, or a cheap pray of the devil. Decide to live above his works and enjoy a very. happy glorious life.
Thank you, Father, for your word. I am a doer of your word and so I feed on the meat of the word. I am in control of my affairs in this life. Satan and his devils are under my control, because I live by a higher authority, that is the word of God. Thanks to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
