You can read spiritual books and derive wisdom from there, which the Holy Spirit can show you; you can meditate or pray a lot, your awareness can go up to higher level, but you may still feel like something’s missing. This something that’s missing is the connection between you and the other spirits.
The Bible says: “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them.”
There might be only two people together and already the power of the spirit flows, awareness spreads and the revelation hits us. The Holy Spirit is our teacher. You might say that he is your highest self but I like to think of Holy Spirit as the one teaching us.
John 2:27 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit – just as it has taught you, remain in him.
Of course spiritual books are useful to you as a spiritual food – if you have an internal teacher who will point out wisdom from those – but otherwise you will store this wisdom into your brain and it will remain there only as a form of knowledge.
Churches are about human groups where people come together for a common purpose to get to heaven. Very secure place for ego – people pray and read the Bible. But if there are no awakened souls, who would join together on spiritual plane, then the church is just an earthly club, for example, such as a hunters’ club – people with a common interest joining together and creating a club. People who are connected on spiritual levels create a state of being, a fellowship of God’s being and this can be named also as a spiritual congregation, or even a family of God.
Throughout my life, I have connected with some of the people with whom I have similar growth progress. They are constantly rotating around me. Sometimes, some of them disappear for a while but then we get together again. It’s like a common destiny. These people are very necessary because they are my helpers. They help me and I them. We communicate on spiritual level and witness each other’s problems, and how we pass through them through God’s wisdom. When we are together, God’s power grows. Energy begins to move, revelation flows. When we pray, we receive all the divine energy. Miracles are born after such meetings.
1 When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together,2 when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting;3 and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them.4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves. Everyone were together and then came the power.
I’ve heard such a wind myself. Once, there was a meeting in my home. The guest preacher and some of the members of the church were visiting. We prayed while kneeling down, in a mutual state of being. Suddenly, the wind blew so hard that we were struggling not to fall over. I believe that energy can do such things, if there is a proper connection.
With this, I want to remind you that, yes we can grow also while being alone but we won’t have real power if we do not occasionally go to the community to load ourselves. Connection is created between likeminded, awakened people. You will be charged in such connection. You will grow more rapidly and your problems will be solved, you will simply find a solution. You will get more of a sparkle and your faith will grow. We can comfort each other. Spiritual connections receive the power of the Holy Spirit, as happened with the apostles.
Why don’t we have the power of the Holy Spirit? Because we are full of the Bible but there is no repentance. If all the people, who sit on church benches, would be awakened then the world would be saved.
