We are transformed by the power of the spirit, “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen” (2 Cor. 4:18). To accomplish this we look with the eyes of our heart into the spiritual world and ask Jesus to show us what He is doing in the situation which is bothering us, and we tune to flow and receive His response. We say, “Yes, Lord” to this and are transformed by reflecting His glory, His perspective, His movements and His power.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.2 Cor. 3:17-18
Spirit-Anointed Training Involves…
Spirit-anointed teacher—The teacher must have a living relationship with the subject at hand (i.e. a love, passion and mastery of the area), and invite his students into that relationship, as full partners, to experience their own living relationship with the subject.
Spirit-anointed teaching—“To teach is to create a space where revelation knowledge is experienced and practiced.”
Derek Prince’s comments on education:
Derek Prince, a well-known Pentecostal theologian whose radio broadcasts covered half the world’s population, who wrote his doctoral thesis on logic, and who was able to teach Greek and Hebrew on the graduate level in England, put it this way:
To put human ability in the place of divine grace is to exalt the carnal above the spiritual. The effect will be manifested in many different areas. For example:
- Theology will be exalted above revelation;
- Intellectual education above character building;
- Psychology above discernment;
- Program above the leading of the Holy Spirit;
- Eloquence above supernatural power;
- Reasoning above the walk of faith;
- Laws above love.
All of these errors are different manifestations of one great basic error: putting man in a place God has reserved solely for the Lord Jesus Christ.
