JOSEPH PRINCE SERMON THE MOST INTIMATE WAY OF WALKING WITH GOD : In Genesis 5, we find this word about Enoch. It says that: “Enoch walked with God and he was not.” He walked with God! Like Adam and Eve, he walked with God. So going back all the way down there, man still walked with God, together with but walking with God is still outward. It is still something close, yes. But not as close as what I’m going to share with you.
So you still find Enoch walking with God. And then in Genesis 17, you find God talking to Abraham and this is what God said to Abraham: “I am El Shaddai.” Literally, “El Shaddai” in Hebrew or “Almighty God.” “Walk before me and be blameless.” So notice now. “Walk before me.” Literally in Hebrew it means “Panim” and “Panim” means, “face.”
God is saying: “Walk before My face.” “Walk before My face,” “Be conscious I’m looking at you.” Now, this is still a wonderful way of walking with God every day, Being conscious as you walk with God, you are conscious He’s looking at you. And we know now that the blessing of the Old Testament: “The Lord make His face to shine on you” should be put in here, That today, because of Christ, God’s face is shining on us. He is beaming on you. He is radiant on you. That you through that grace and that light of His revelation will be able to walk with God, walk before God, and yet I’m going to show you right now, the new covenant way of walking with God.
Galatians 5:16. “I say then: ‘Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill’” “‘the lust of the flesh.’” here we have a more intimate walk in the Spirit. Now, how do you walk in the Spirit? You’re not walking with the Spirit. You’re not walking before the Spirit. That will indicate that the Holy Spirit is outside you. Don’t forget that the Holy Spirit is God Himself. He is one of the Godhead, the divine Person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Joseph prince says, here it is not talking about you walking with the Holy Spirit or walking before the Holy Spirit, which all indicates it is still outside you, but you’re walking in the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah. You’re walking in the Spirit. That is a very intimate term because the real you is actually a spirit.
God made you in His image, God made you a spirit you are a tripartite being, you are a spirit being, you have a soul. Your soul is not the real you, the real you is the spirit and you have a soul, am a spirit. I have a soul. The soul is the mind, the will, the emotions, all that is the soul realm and you live in a body. So there are three parts to you. You are also tripartite. There are three parts to you. So you are a spirit. You have a soul, and you live in a body.
It’s a picture of the tabernacle. In the old tabernacle of Moses, you find there are three parts to it. The outer court, which is your body, The Holy Place, which is your soul and the Holy Of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant is And God’s presence and Shekinah glory is there, that’s the spirit.
Pastor Joseph Prince wants us to understand that our walk has become more intimate in the new covenant, where your spirit and God’s Spirit are in the Holy Of Holies and you sense things. That’s why, what you sense deep down is more important than what you hear in your head, than your logic, than your reasoning. Your spirit man is faster than your head. If you listen to it, you will find profit.
