A Petition 4 Holy-Spirit-Led Intuition! (Let’s Re-Intuitionize Church Meetings!)

Should We Re-Intuitionize Church Meetings?
–Jesus established the church on Spirit-intuition. When Peter recognized Jesus as the Christ (the Messiah), Jesus said: “This was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.” And Jesus added: “On this rock I will build my church.”
–A reading of the book of Acts shows that the early church was highly intuitionized. We continually read how the Holy Spirit spoke directly to them and how they did what the Spirit told them to.
–Paul taught: ” For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”
–Paul also described the early church as being intuitional when said: “When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation.”
–However, as the first Christ-followers died, intuitional church meetings were replaced with pastor-controlled, institutional, organized, scripted, and programmed church meetings.
??? So should we re-intuitionize the church? Yes! Jesus, help us to courageously obey the command of Your mother to the servants at the wedding at Cana: “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

One way to re-intuitionalize church meetings is to make them doer-sensitive.

–Doer-sensitive church — church meetings that allow people to do what the Spirit tells them to do, as they one another.
— Hearer-sensitive church — people have to sit and hear the same man speak week after week.
(“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” –book of James)

Experience doer-sensitive, intuitional church meetings every Sunday morning @ The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, TN 37207 — 10:45 am.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

  1. I don’t think the Holy Spirit = my intuition! I can’t find one scripture to support that?

    • Steve Simms says:

      Good point. Thanks for the comment, Tim. The Holy Spirit is God! My intuition is the ability to hear and see in the spiritual realm. Intuition can, like Isaiah did, hear the voice of God. It can also hear the voice of the enemy. So we must verify what we hear with the Bible. In this blog post I give several Scriptures that refer to hearing and/or obeying God’s voice. What do we hear Him with? Our heart, our soul, our intuition. King David heard God tell him: “Be still and know that I am God!”
      People need to be taught that the living God is speaking to them and they need to learn to listen to His voice.
