We offer a Mini-Revelatory Expository for many of the series we teach. They’re designed to be study aids for those diligently studying the Word to show themselves approved; unto God. They offer you opportunity to gain “more understanding” of revelation the Holy Spirit gives; as He’s still assigned to give those seeking Him; the wise enlightenment of truth.
The revelatory; Mary, young and spiritually inexperienced; was yet wise-hearted; a qualifying characteristic in those God fills with His Spirit of wisdom; but seeks out when He is ready to overshadow and use them to then be or do His supernatural exploits. Exodus 28:3
It is through the power of God’s choice to cause men to be saved using preaching of Christ crucified, to free us from sin; that the power of His grace is proved as the strength of our faith. Indeed, all His choices always depose the wisdom of the seemingly wise; and still yet bring to naught the limited understanding of all who think they are the ones highly prudent”. So, it is,God’s deposed all the wise, as the scholars and disputers of this world; He’s unseated the foolishness of their wisdom; where it fails to acknowledge, He is!
This session highlights the purpose of the Nazarite which was usually mysterious; and as they were highly elusive characters; they ranged from the many that felt or were told they were called as a result of many things and the few God chose.
Let those spiritually maturing among us; let this same mind be in us all; so that in being thusly consecrated we too may hold true; being guided by His easy yoke and light burden; to walk and maintain ordered courses spiritually; thus prepared to do, accomplish and fulfill the Revelatory High Calling; as it becometh us!
The revelatory is, it signifies those who in gratitude press in and past even themselves; to come sincerely worshiping Him; determined to withhold nothing. Thus, we’re to be willing to give ourselves away to be used by Him, to in the process; be that same blessing unto others. Such “true worshipers” are acceptable; as is what we may have thought of as being just a little we had; God declared much; when given from pure hearts; not merely following form, spiritual protocols dictate; or by rote, for as learned habits they have no basis of gratitude for giving.
Being Spiritual Minded is a Continual Revelatory Journey; and it will always begin with an initially being given; according to all that God’s purposed us for; as we’re “His” vessels. He thoroughly searches to see and know us all. So too; He rules in the how and when He’ll move to call and strategically reposition us in life; as His, literally possessing our hearts and reins. This is how as Lord; He leads, guides in a giving us; of His Spirit; as, when and by what measure He wills
Jesus knew in Himself; He had received a better and enduring substance from God as His anointing to minister continually of. He also knew with a deep within Himself; that would not be denied; how God had glorified Him. For God proclaimed aloud publicly; “This is My Son in whom I’m well-pleased; hear ye Him!” Yet, that never stopped the self-righteous Pharisaical religiosity of His day; and still today; from hating, so plotting against the liberty this; coming to “know in ourselves” brings all believers in Him unto!
As we progress on in our series; we’ll learn Moses, along with Jesus and Paul will form our baseline case studies for this “Revelatory High Calling”. Let us begin now by considering as these “Revelatory Nazarites” they were transcendent transformative characters with elusive spiritual birth certificates solidly revealed in foundational scriptures.

Encouraged Himself: this is a powerful word “chazaq” which implies although David was greatly distressed by what he discerned; suddenly remembered what mattered most; the fact that the Lord God was yet still with and His grace was the 1st key enabling him to behave wisely again; to then boldly, turn his 2nd key to begin to “chazaq”; encouraging himself!
