I wanted to post a few tidbits of info as I took notes listening to the first three of these discs, some are direct quotes from Dr. Lemmons. I highly recommend this material for any serious student of the scriptures. You can contact Calhoun Church at their website http://www.calhounchurch.org/
I will continue to post quotes and/or portions of my own notes as I continue this very in depth, exciting and enlightening study.
Prayer is the essence of our spiritual life. When the human spirit is detached from what is greater than itself, the good becomes bad, order becomes chaotic. What holds the inner life together, its not just to know about God, even to know Him, but to be known by Him.
There is no substitute for prayer. It is more than a light before us, but a light within us. It’s a dialogue, a conversation between friends.
The Voice goes into the heart… we are not changed by what we know… but what the holy spirit causes you to become!
What we read with our eyes goes into our mind… but what we hear by His spirit/His voice goes into our hearts and is what transforms us.
Loneliness cries out for God’s presence. Our lack of hearing his voice, accounts for so much of our unhappiness
Noise –both sight and sound signifies a presence… having someone around. People’s heart and emotions cry out for the presence of someone or something. We are hardwired to desire the presence of another being. Noise is one of satans greatest substitutions. This is why worship is so important. Worship is who God is and praise is what He has done.
Your mind is flesh, your heart is spirit… you can’t worship God with your mind, you can only worship Him with your spirit. He says we must worship in Truth and Spirit.
