When most people think of inoculations, receiving small doses of the diseases they are hoping to produce immunity to, they think of infectious viruses that either have become epidemic or pandemic. Surprisingly, not only is God’s “call” to go viral—to take the Full Gospel of Christ to the entire world—still a command that is in effect today, but also rapidly spreading the Good News in a very short amount of time not only is an incredibly “good thing” to do but also is an extremely easy task to accomplish these days. The problem is that most of this century’s professed believers prefer to be vaccinated with a small dose of the Holy Spirit so they won’t become contagious, and that is because they don’t want to be responsible for spreading the Full Gospel of Christ (the Great Commission) by using all of the fullness of Grace, which includes the Holy Spirit’s power of transformation. Fire Insurance is all most believers desire!
Sensual unbelief results from us paying more attention to the physical world and/or our natural senses, or paying more attention to the opinions of others, instead of focusing on the Divine, Supernatural Truth of God. Consequently, we keep looking to Christ Jesus to do for us what He ALREADY has done in us!
The old adage about ignorance being bliss is not absolutely true, and, as such, was not a credible excuse in my case. Whereas I once did believe wholeheartedly in this expression, I now, on a spiritual footing, have to disagree with those people who believe “ignorance is bliss” is a “wise” saying. Not knowing who God is, not knowing His covenanted promises that He has made with His people, not knowing how He operates in His people’s lives, and not knowing how He expects His people to operate in this world, according to His Word, is ignorance that does not promote happiness.
