Galatians 4:1-7 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
I never had a personal tutor. Never had a governess. Never was under a teacher of any sorts for a long time. I was under a preacher for a period of time but I was young, unimpressed and did not know the difference between preaching and teaching. Then I was baptized of the Holy Ghost. No man did it, Jesus Christ Himself did the honors.
The scriptures became alive in me and I thirsted like never before. I couldn’t get enough. I sat under some wonderful teachers and then under one not so wonderful. That is when I reached out to the writers of the past and discovered a turn of the century author who I could connect with. I did not know why at the time but as I developed my God given gift it became apparent why. He saw everything in black and white. He was a hard man with clear lines and a sharp tongue. This fed into my prophetic nature, black and white, judgmental, no grace, no mercy, get on board or get out of the way.
Then the Holy Spirit showed me his errors. They were becoming mine and that would not be tolerated.
