Make it so that whatever you learn, you want to tell somebody else...you want to show them, you want them to learn what you've learned.
The devil is so coy... if he can work on cells in your body, he can influence your brain, your mind, your thinking. He can and he does.
Your relationship with Christ is what matters. Your intimacy with Him is the bottom line. But you cannot have any intimacy with Him until you are born again. Then you have to grow.
Jesus said in MATTHEW 5:48, "Be perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect." In this Scripture He is talking about "maturing", not "being flawless". We are mature, flawless IN OUR SPIRIT, but here it's talking about us becoming mature in our soulish realm where we need to continually be growing.
When you receive a revelation truth from God, it becomes part of you, and then you become interested in it. Don't compare your knowledge and intimacy with the Lord as better than someone else's knowledge and intimacy with Him. At the point that this happens, the devil is able to come in and influence your thinking. This is a warning.
The Bible in 2 CORINTHIANS 2:11 says that we are not ignorant of his devices... but we are ignorant until someone exposes him to us. Some Christians don't even believe that there is a devil or a hell. In this way they don't have to do spiritual warfare... they can just plead their ignorance.
