When you are talking of the leader of leaders, the scriptures take precedence over any other leader. The scriptures reveal God to us on four different levels: the truth about God, the nature of God, the principles of God and the mindset of God. The word is always the leader.
When somebody promotes the Holy Ghost above the word of God, what it means is that he is promoting His gifts; he’s promoting the things of the Holy Ghost above the word of God. The word of God does not contradict the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
You are not a safe Christian if you lay more emphasis on the spirit ahead of and above the word.
In fact, to be safe in these last days, first of all, be a man of the Word before becoming a man of the Spirit. Don’t be a man of the Spirit before you become a man of the Word, else you may not find your way back to the word. Give attention to the word of God, study it, meditate on it day and night. Do not respect a man that does not respect or give honour to the word of God. Never promote the Spirit above the Word. The Word brings stability while revelation brings speed. If you go after speed with no stability, your vehicle will crash somewhere on the journey.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to stay with Your word these last days. I will not miss it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
