Today’s session is a continuation of the series – ‘Insights into Understanding Biblical Judgements’.
After laying the foundations to the series in the previous session, Pastor Thamo now delves into how we obtain the Spirit of Judgement. He exhorts that for each believer to make biblical judgements, which essentially means making judicious, wise, and prudent decisions, we must have in us the Spirit of Judgement. The Church is presently in a Kairos moment which requires a heavenly agenda to be imposed upon the earth. An essential requirement for this to happen is that critical decisions will have to be made, and such decisions cannot be made correctly without the Spirit of Judgement.
Pastor Thamo unpacks 3 requirements that every son of God should embrace in order to develop the Spirit of Judgment. The first of these, and one that was introduced last week, is to develop an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to have a very practical, not a mystical, relationship with us. The role of the Holy Spirit, amongst others, is to reset our ability to comprehend rule from a heavenly perspective. He makes us spiritually intelligent thus becoming our indispensable helper in the task of decision making, adjudicating, and executing over matters.
The second requirement is to become intimately familiar with the Word of God. God has provided us with His word as a standard by which we judge. It is therefore essential that we study the Word of God, not just devotionally, but for the purposes of doctrine. 2 Timothy 3:16 is explicitly clear- All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The third aspect is that of spiritual discernment. 1 Corinthians 2:14, 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. Pastor Thamo exhorts us to sharpen our soul, spirit, and even our physical being, which includes the 5 senses, in order to be fine-tuned in spiritual discernment.
