Spirit of Life Ministries has a passion to teach and equip the saints so that they will understand scripture and be able to know how to be a witness for Jesus Christ.

We do not charge for this school, although many similar schools charge a lot of money. We know many could never afford the teachings if they cost money.

We want to thank those that do support us with their giving, which enables those that can't to be able to be students.

SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY

"Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
I Corinthians 15:51-52 KJV

ZEAL IS NOT ENOUGH
 
Zeal for God is not enough. “What?” you say! Isn’t zeal for God a good thing? Yes, but only if it is rightly placed.
 
What exactly is zeal? It is defined as:
[1] eager desire or effort. 
[2] earnest enthusiasm.
[3] fervor.
 
A person who shows too much fervor or enthusiasm for a cause is called a zealot.
 
When the New Testament refers to a Zealot, it is speaking specifically of a member or cohort of a band of Jews who militantly or fiercely resisted Roman rule. They often looked to an individual they thought might be the promised Messiah; a person who would free them from the Romans and set up a free nation of Israel and who would rule as their king.   They had a “zeal for God” that was misplaced because they had no true understanding of the biblical prophecies of the coming Messiah or of the eternal Kingdom. Their “zeal for God” was foolishness. It was misplaced.
 
There was a young man by the name of Saul, who was very highly educated in the scriptures. He was of the sect of Pharisees, the dominant sect of the Temple in Jerusalem. He was very zealous for the written word of God (what we today call the Old Testament). He, along with other Pharisees, and the other sect of Sadducees, considered the practice or beliefs of any Jew that departed from the Mosaic Law to be absolute heresy. They believed all heresy must be eliminated by whatever means it takes.
 
Saul was full of zeal for God. Thousands of Jews departed from strict adherence to the Mosaic Law so that they could become “followers of the way”, being saved by faith in the risen Jesus Christ. Saul saw them all as heretics to be eliminated. The ruling council of the synagogue (Temple), the Sanhedrin, also saw them as a heretical threat. They gave official authorization to the zealous Saul to pursue these “heretics” of “The Way” to imprison them. Many of them would be executed.
 
Saul was doing this “for God.” It was for “God” as he had known from the scriptures in which he had been taught. He had no understanding (nor did the Sanhedrin) that Jesus had fulfilled the scripture as the “suffering Messiah.” His zeal was misplaced.
 
Many others even in the last 200 years have had a great zeal for God that was misplaced. Zeal is not enough. It must be rightly placed.
 
Joseph Smith and Brigham Young had great zeal for God. It was based on a “new” word from “God” delivered to them by an “angel.” That “new word” was written as “scripture” in the Book of Mormon. It was zeal misplaced.
 
Mary Baker Eddy had a zeal for “God” and wrote her revelation in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.” We call it Christian Science. It was zeal misplaced.
 
Many others have had “misplaced zeal” due to their lack of true understanding of scripture, a lack of a genuine salvation experience through Jesus, and no relationship with Holy Spirit.
 
Zeal it not enough. It must be coupled with a right understanding. It must be in line with what the Holy Bible gives us. It must be moderated through Holy Spirit.
 
The church is in great need of those who would be zealous for God. Without zeal, the church becomes lazy, complacent, and ineffective. A church that is filled with “rightly placed” zealots could turn the world upside down for Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven.
 
Will you be a zealot for Jesus? Will you be a “fanatic” for Jesus?

TOGETHER FOR GOOD
 
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” This verse is often misquoted. Many say all things are good for them that love God, but it doesn’t say that. It says all things work “together for good.” 
 
We all have hard things that happen to us in life’s journey. We have a choice when they happen, to learn from them, or become overwhelmed by them. Whatever “pit” you have been thrown into, there will be an opportunity for you to use your testimony to show others how God brought you out. The bad things and the good things work together. God doesn’t send bad things to us to teach us lessons. Sin brings things to us that often hurt us. Yet, we can take the hurt and turn it into victory with God’s help.
 
If you were to look at a knitted sweater on the inside, you might see some tangled threads and yarn that has been knotted together. On the outside it looks beautiful, but the knotting together has to take place for the completed work. It isn’t seen, but it is there, holding the sweater together. 
 
Don’t let the “knots” in life or the “have nots” in life defeat you. Know that God can take these things and work them together in his time for our good. There will always be a season where we spend time in the “cocoon” but that is where transformation comes. It is dark and lonely there, but things are working together for the emerging of something beautiful. 
 
Remember, God has a plan, and it is good!

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

Some of you think you have to do something major for Jesus for him to think good thoughts towards you. That is not the truth. Often it is the little things we do that bring joy to God. The smile, the opening of the door for a person, the letting someone go before you in line. The little things really add up to big things in God's mind. Do not discount doing the little things! God doesn't! 🧡
PROPHETESS AMANDA SHIFLETT

At times you have to walk through something painful with others (leaders, friends), so you can learn how NOT to be. Forgive them, release them...but remember how it felt and don't do that/say that/be that to others. Several times throughout my walk with the Lord, and especially in my training process, I've asked the Lord about how I was treated, and I would hear Him gently say...
"Remember how this made you feel, and don't ever do that to [a friend, someone under your leadership, a co-worker] others."
Sometimes we have to be what we've never had...A loyal friend, a good leader. He is working all things to the good. Let Him work it through you, so it doesn't just happen to you.

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

It’s true what you look at the longest will become the strongest. I’m sure there are times that we all need to check our focus lenses. Did you know that a loser will look at and yes they focus on what they’re going THROUGH? But a winner will look at and focus on what they’re going TO. Remember we’re each given by God a certain amount of years or time here on our training field of life. So don’t ever waste your good time looking at...Yes, focusing on where you know you do not need to go, to be or to do. Right now ask yourself the question...”Where is my focus?” Just remember IF you’ll simply change your focus; You can change your future. So concentrate and focus on where you want to go TO; Not what you’re now going THROUGH.
