Edifying: Building up or Bringing down

I have been very quiet in the last few days. I believe the Lord has been speaking to me very clearly.

There has been a scarcity and a restricting of the flow of the Holy Spirit in the area of the gifts and Body Ministry. I am not sure if it is just here or if this is general.

The Church is veering back to a platform centered ministry instead of activating the saints. This is so that the saints do not attain full maturity. Maturity does not come from pulpit ministry but every day fellowship.

But the opposite is happening. We are teaching people to hear God through meetings. This is the open door to deception. This makes us robotic in our spirituality. We need and we have the Spirit to teach us to discern.

We are a Body, but each must enter into their function.

If we do not EDIFY we are bringing down. Edification comes through using and exercising the gifts that God has given us.

I believe and sense from the Lord that this is imperative. There is more to come.
