HOW TO NEVER EVER ‘MISS IT’ IN GUIDANCE.

It is possible to never make a mistake in guidance. Your spirit man hits the bulls eye 100% of the time. So often after we err we say ” something was telling me not to do that.” That “something” was your spirit.

Most people miss the fact that being “led by the Spirit” means being led by your recreated human spirit. Your spirit is made up of three parts: conscience, intuition and communion.

This is one of the most mind blowing teaching ins the Bible, namely the triune nature of man. Spirit, soul and body.

With our spirit we contact the realm of God.

With our soul (mind, will an emotions) we contact the realm of men.

With our five physical senses we contact the realm of earth.

Being led by the Spirit happens in our spirit – the part of us that is born again and made a dwelling place for the Spirit of God. “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Romans 8:16)

This is what the Bible means when it says “you are the temple of the Holy Ghost” and “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

What we miss is the fact that CONSCIENCE is the voice of the Spirit in our spirit. This is why the Bible warns about those who violate conscience ending up shipwrecked in their faith. The secret is to have a Biblically educated conscience. Insufficient truth leads to lawlessness. Too much truth without corresponding grace leads to legalism. BUT- (and most people miss this) Proverbs tells us that INTEGRITY will be our guide! This is another way of saying – conscience.

  1. Many illustrations of the triune nature of man are out there in Web Land, but one Craig Hill taught from several years ago was very helpful to me. In that teaching he drew up three rooms, side by side. in the left room was Body, in the middle room was Soul, and in the right room was Spirit. There are walls separating each of the rooms, but there are also doors in the two interior walls – and only one door can be open at any given time. Either the door is open between our soul and our spirit man or the other door is open between our body and our soul. Dr. Hill’s teaching was that as we are inclined to hold open one or the other door, our soul is lead to be more of the Spirit or of the Body (implying that operating out of the flesh was not helpful to our soul). Just a model, but one to ponder from time to time.

    • I agree we are spirit, soul and body. I just learned it 6 yrs ago while we lived in Clovis, NM. But for some reason my door from soul to spirit seems to be locked and I can not find the jey, no matter how much I read, pray or listen to good preachers and teachers online. One big question I have is why can’t I hear and know God’s will on which church to call home? My husband seems content at the last and current church. But I want to jeep looking. Until I know in my heart and mind that the Holy Spirit says “Here is your home where I will help you grow with this family.”

  2. Very good. I have had times when I didn’t move because I questioned my inner spirit. God is so good to show us the truth when we seek for it!!

  3. Lance, I appreciate this teaching and it sure rings true! Your last statements are the keys that open the understanding about this for me:
    “The secret is to have a Biblically educated conscience. Insufficient truth leads to lawlessness. Too much truth without corresponding grace leads to legalism. BUT- (and most people miss this) Proverbs tells us that INTEGRITY will be our guide! This is another way of saying – conscience.”
    Hebrews 10:22 conveys the underlying need to be biblically educated, mature in our thinking & reasoning “let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience”. An evil or guilty conscience will hinder us from being led by the spirit and we know that “whatever is not from faith is sin” (missing the mark). This then means we do need to be as Paul told Timothy “workmen handling accurately the word of truth” and the more we work out the “salvation of our souls with fear & trembling” the better off we will be! Initial salvation may be free but this further salvation has a cost & that is the cost of discipleship!

    • Kurt, most people don’t realize that its the spirit that get saved and the soul has its own”salvation” and it is called sanctification, discipleship, the renewing of the mind. You seem to see it. If there is one thing I have learned, in all the places it talks about saving the soul, it is talking to the believers. The saving of the soul is different than the spirit, it is a process. Spirit is a done deal, sealed, saved and reborn. Our stubborn soul is ongoing with discipleship. Nice to find someone else he see it that way. It took me years to see it. We are called soul winners…We should be called spirit winners first then we win the soul with discipleship.

  4. This revelation is a basic 101 of spirit soul and Body. if we do not know this we cannot live a christian life and yet this one teaching of spirit soul and Body is missing very much. Thanks for confirming Lance. This is second time some one is breaking it down.
    Usually People just say Sprit Soul and Body and . Andrew wommack has one of the best teaching on Spirit Soul and Body.

    Body: has 3 parts: Flesh, Bones and Blood.
    Spirit has 3 parts: Intuition, conscience and communion
    Soul has 3 parts: Mind, will and intellect.

  5. You are so articulate with your language, Lance. Brilliant in the way you string words together to sound totally truth baring and stunningly fluid. God has given you such giftedness in how you express things. Thank you God!! Give Lance more!!! MUCH MORE!!!!

      • Sorry I didn’t check my spelling before posting. I meant to say key not jey. Also keep not jeep. I also have other questions, for Lance or Mark (who’s post I thought I replied to) on hearing the Spirit’s direction. I am 65 yrs old and just learning how to do a reply.

  6. I really do not like being a neigh sayer,
    But wouldn’t the concience be the word written on our hearts, therefore renewing our mind. I have practiced alot of religons in the past and this sounds like a cross between tao and the sylvan mind controll method.. but then I guess I am the only one who this brought confusion to. So please don’t attack me everyone.

    • Hi Kelly, When I read your post and re-read Lances last paragraph, I see Lance saying the same thing as you just wording things a bit different. I would say you added a very important element to the discussion and that would be the conscience (spirit) renewing the mind (soul). This of course is a process that occurs simultaneously with listening to our Biblicaly educated conscience.. And in my experience this trains your mind to allow the spirit to direct us rather than our soul.

    • I applaud you Kelly for speaking up when it’s enough for everyone to just agree with what was said without pondering and analyzing it through the light of the Word of God.

  7. Great stuff
    Agreed
    Thankfully we learn from trial and error
    I know for myself, because I had trusted in people with big names to guide me
    And was told that what was being spoken to me was not of God,
    Hindered my walk with God, because I had started to listen to them and believe them.
    Now in being away from those types of people that are honestly just afraid of newness coming
    I have had time to search my heart in God again
    And know for a fact that everything God has spoken to me in my spirit, in the spirit in heavenly places
    Is God talking and truth. And that I had been hanging out with spiritual abortionists
    Now I am free from the trap that men lay for those who seek more in God.
    I’ve learned that there is a reason that the bible says not to hang out with them
    And to even walk on the other side of the street if need be.
    I’ve also learned that it’s not at the name of a famous man in the community every knee shall bow
    But at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow.
    Anyways I appriciate what God gives you to share
