Today, there are many churches that have book reports given on Sunday morning. Anybody today with any kind of training can read any book, including the Bible, and give a book report. There is a difference between information and revelation. Information will give you head knowledge. Revelation will give you heart knowledge – the kind of thing that sees the Word of God work in your life.
The Spirit of God said to me, “The first thing that should be taught to new Christians is how to pray. Without prayer, Christians will not know Me or have the ability to live according to My Word.” Motivational messages come from spending time in the natural putting together a message, rather than spending time in prayer, getting in the spirit, and getting revelation from God.
There are many people today that are getting motivational messages, built on psychology and sociology instead of the revelation of the Word of God. Revelation changes things. Information just makes you feel good. In this message, Rev. Grier shares more about the difference between information and revelation.
