Increasing Our Relationship
with the Lord
Let us not become the problem but the answer to the problem.
To do this, we must have the right spirit and give forth the
right “vibrations,” –or expressed feelings.
We do this by cultivating the right spirit.
“Vibrations” are what an infant feels when cradled
in the protective warmth of its mother’s loving arms.
Vibrations are what a child feels and responds to when its
father tosses it gleefully into the air, or its mother plays
with it in gentleness. It is quite possible that the parents
might play a little rough, even to the point of hurting the
child, but as long as they play, it laughs in joyous delight.
If the parents, however change their spirit of love (vibration)
to a spirit of condemnation (vibration), a negative spirit,
sent out in wrath and anger can thereby do as much harm as
a positive word by the spirit of love can do good—“For
by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by they words thou
shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:35-37). A positive spirit
and attitude will bring light and love which will always have
the efficacy of dispelling an evil negativeness and darkness,
when we call upon the Lord to do so.
This knowledge, containing the method of using the laws of
righteousness correctly, is the positive spoken word and approach
to God’s purpose and plan. “That the communication
of the faith may come effectual by the acknowledging of every
good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus" (Philemon
As one learns to control his own thoughts and actions and
reactions—permitting no negative, vile, lustful or hateful
thoughts to be generated or released through him—he
will become powerful in the Lord. In I Samuel 2:3 our very
actions are weighed. These releases are very important in
our lives. Remember Hebrews 10:32, “…after ye
were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions.”
An individual learning to overcome his own wrath, anger,
hate, greed, lust and selfishness will have the power to completely
overcome the evils of his life. Even the destructive vibrations
of worry which are but the release of his own fears, can be
eliminated instantly by the love of God. “Love casts
our all fear: fear has torment” (I John 4:18).
You are the instrument through which these constructive releases
will come. A bad spirit toward your fellow man will be your
destruction; a good spirit toward your fellow man will cause
you to be an overcomer (mature), for by your words you are
justified and by your words you are condemned. “…If
any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able
also to bridle the whole body” (James 3:2).
This all tends to increase our relationship with the Lord
“in whom all the building fitly framed together growth
into an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded
together for an habitation of God through the Spirit”
(Eph 2:21, 22).
Habitation is a place of abode or relationship with the Lord.
Verse 21 of Ephesians 2 teaches us not to stay in the same
place but to grow together into a Holy Habitation.
The fifteenth chapter of Exodus gives us our full and complete
inheritance. We are to be planted in the mountain of His Holy
Habitation (Exodus 15:2, 13, 17), a complete picture of the
tabernacle outer court, inner court, and the Holy of Holies—ruling
and reigning in Christ Jesus “after ye were illuminated…”
“Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things
which we have wrought but that we receive a full reward (heritage)”
(2 John 8).
