Life Giving Spirit

“You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men.”  II Corinthians 3:2

It is what we have become, rather than what we say, that is the most effective witness.
We begin to see ourselves as containers of  the manifested glory of the Lord. It is an
anointing that is resting upon us as we have spent time in His presence. Our words can
be 100% correct but without the anointing no heart change will take place in the hearer.

“Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter,
but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”  II Corinthians 3:6

I have heard many with the ability to preach with passion and great intellect. There
is truly a stirring in the soul of the hearer but the Spirit is not released. And I have been in
meetings where the natural limitations of the person speaking were apparent yet the anointing
and manifestation of the Lord’s presence was upon them. In this day, the Lord is taking behind
the veil those who may be lacking in ability, but who abide in His presence. These are seeking
to better know Jesus and have made themselves available to Him for whatever purpose He may
have. We are "life giving" spirits. The words we speak are "spirit and life". The first Adam
was a living soul. The last Adam ( Jesus ) is a "life giving" Spirit. ( 1 Corinthians 15:45 )
