Theme: GENDERING (FRUIT-BEARING) THROUGH GILGAL OPERATIONS
Texts: Jos.5:1-12, Jn.15:16
Gilgal dimension is a realm of divine power obtained and sustained through purity, and enlarged through knowledge (Heb.1:8,9, Jn.8:32, Prov.24:3,4).
The Lord buttressed the irreplaceable position of knowledge in kingdom progress by lamenting at the consequences of its lack (Hos.4:6, Jer.8:7), but encouraging and ensuring that His servants possess it (Ps.103:7, Jer.9:23,24, Amos 3:7).
Joshua was told to acquire it through habitual reading and meditating on the word, for therein lies success (Jos,1:8, cp. Ps.1:1-3); and the manifestation of the Captain of the Lord’s host was simply to boost his faith for the battles through knowledge (Jos,5:13-15). It was the knowledge that made Joseph not to terminate his divine program at Potipher’s house when his mistress enticed him to sin (Gen.39:1-20). It was the knowledge that Elisha had about the glory of service of God that made him abandon his lucrative agricultural business to follow the Prophet Elijah unto his ascension to heaven (1Kgs.19:19-21, 2Kgs.2:9-13).
The Lord Jesus stipulated that the disciple should bear fruit; knowledge is crucial in this business of occupying (Jn.14:12). Faith comes through knowledge acquired (Rom.10, 2Pt.1:16-21) and success comes through the application of acquired knowledge (Jas.2:18,24-26). To bear fruit abundantly, one must have and apply knowledge of the word.
