Dream word – POWER
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” NKJV
I remember speaking to another minister whose longstanding friend from high school years was demonised to such an extreme and possessive extent, that you would have called him possessed! In his more lucid moments this same possessed man reported that he knew when other people he met were demonised because that which possessed him, communicated with that which possessed them. In other words, he was aware of the darkness in him communicating with the darkness in them.
Believe it or not, there is a spiritual principle here us children of Light to really get hold of. We as sons and daughters of The Light can and should communicate with all the other children of light. I am not talking about social communication, or what we so glibly refer to as “fellowshipping” with one another! I am talking about three of the most underutilised but powerful modes of communication you could ever use top side of this earth and underside of heaven! I need to tell you as well that there are three levels of life giving power associated with these three modes of life giving communication. Let me start with the latter.
First, the three levels of communication are as follows.
Level one communication is cerebral. It is from one mouth to one ear landing one brain. You might share something from the Word of God, a verse, a text, an insight and it’s good, it’s powerful and it’s right but it’s only been fired from the mind through the mouth, into an ear and lodged itself in another person’s mind. It easy to deliver at this cerebral level and relatively easy to receive and consider. It’s level one communication.
Level two communication is deeper in its source for it is a soulish communication, it is emotional in content and context, it is from one heart to another. The delivery of such communication demands openness on the part of the communicator and some transparency, some authenticity and some vulnerability but its content is received at a felt level and therefore a truly known level and an understood level! This is powerful level two communication level.
Level three communication is the deepest of levels it is guttural in both its delivery and reception, it is spiritual, it is commanding, it is declarative, it is life-changing. It is exceptionally powerful. It is communication at a completely different dimensional level, it is spirit communication, it is deep calling to deep.
Just what level of communication have you been mostly communicating in today? How just how deep can you go?
Now if these are the three levels of communication for the children of light let me now share with you the three modes of communication.
Mode one communication is affirmation. It is right and proper, it is necessary and vital that we all participate in this mode of affirmative communication. This takes the form of acknowledge of who the other person is, their existence, their calling, their gifting, their anointing, their good choices, their right directions. We need to at a guttural level, a deep spiritual level, acknowledge and honour the very being, position, personhood and standing of one another in Christ. Imagine the power of this, imagine the affirmation of personhood and position to other members of the body.
Mode two communication is impartation. It is right and proper, it is necessary and vital that we all participate in this mode of impartative communication. This takes the form of speaking words of power, words of direction changing encouragement, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, words of strength, comfort, love, words that will swallow loneliness and breed a family that stands like an army on which the gates of hell will fall and break in two. Imagine the power of this, imagine the ability to impart all that is necessary to one another to stand victoriously.
Mode three communication is declaration. Not only is it right and proper, is it necessary and vital that we all participate in this mode of declarative communication but Oh God! This is something which is so sorely missing in the church of the modern day. Oh how we need to put into practice the ability to call forth life from the dead, the ability to in faith declare the things that are yet to be seen and experienced in another person’s life! Now I am not talking about a God like activity of calling into being the things that are not but rather, calling into the open the things that are hidden, calling into vision those things which have been lost, calling to attention those things which have been ignored, left alone, underutilised, calling onto the field of battle the manifold, life changing, life giving, blessings of the Father toward us in Christ Jesus our Lord, that they might be made manifest and actioned right onto the hearts and into the very spirits of the sons of His love.
So tell me. How have your communication skills been today dear friend? Tomorrow, I want to challenge you to move into a mode three and level three communication with the other saints. Now is the time to let our words change each other, change the world, shape each other, shape the world. Now is the time to communicate effectively.
Listen: “These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:13-16 NKJV
Pray: Lord, give me words of power. Lord, give me words of life. Lord, give me words of formation and change, words of resurrection and life, Lord anoint my lips with living words and dancing light, anoint my lips with the sound of many voices, the rush and crash of waterfalls, the solid certainties of Your deep calling unto deep, in Jesus name I pray, Amen!
