Does God Spit? ....in your eye?!?!
This is one of the strangest things I've ever taught. (3 min. quick vid click here.)
Why would Jesus spit on someone to heal them? You'll want to watch the full teaching to get the complete picture but let me cut to the chase for now.
There are times when God will release something against us that seems so dishonoring that we can hardly believe it.
In fact - oft times we won't believe it and just think it was an attack by someone or something not of God.
But we'll miss the chance to shift if we do that.
Jesus took a deaf mute and a blind guy and used this intensely derogatory method to break them free from old identities.
He opened ears to hear, eyes to see, and a voice to be heard.
How about you? Need better hearing, better vision, and clean communication?
Knock, knock. Who's there? Jesus....
We see this in Naaman in 2 Kings 5. Elisha basically insults the guy to force him to receive the healing ON GOD'S TERMS and not on his own.
Naaman had a choice to walk-away insulted or walk-in submitted. He chose well.
I call this process S-P-I-T:
The Strange Path of Identity Transformation.
So odd.....yet so God.
This kind of thing is happening with us personally.
It is also going on with the institutional church in this nation right now.
God wants us all to get clear on Identity in Him - on reflecting His glory - on moving His Kingdom forward in HIS way on HIS time table.
This is indeed a strange word - but it's correct and it's biblical and you'll want to see and hear it so God can free you in these areas and in His way.
