We’ve all seen and heard know it all’s and how that has mostly left us looking for a way to avoid this rare breed of superior humanity as quickly as possible. Thing is, for those who have been received of the Father, been made one in and with Him, we actually know a whole lot more than we think we know, really!
There’s two kinds of knowing the bible talks about, without getting into the Greek meanings, lets just put it this way, there’s the spontaneous intuitive knowing that is purely subjective, meaning, its as if seemingly out of nowhere, we have this flash of genius, knowing that we know that we never studied for or even thought about it with any in-depth searching.
The other knowing is an experiential objective knowing that is used to substantiate the subjective intuitive knowing we received that had no bearing upon our formal education or intellectual abilities.
These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 1 John 2:26-27
What if the massive extent of available Christian teaching is the cause of most of our confusion?
Can we still learn from one another? For sure, but that learning can only come as it is built upon the reality that the knowledge of God is already within the one we would teach. I cannot teach you something that you don’t already have inherently within you through the Spirit of God. If you read the letters of the apostles, it becomes clear that they fully understood this in how they taught. While the religious world uses the written word of God, especially the New Testament letters, to teach you what they assume you do not understand, they were written with a view to the mind of Christ within you. Paul’s main approach in writing his long logical letter to the Roman believers was to systematically destroy the logic of the natural mind that constantly presenting itself as wisdom, while at the same time, he uncovered the truth of their new life in Christ the truth that was their inheritance, the truth that was within them because of the mind of Christ within them.
