  • Climbing the mountain of God
  • We don’t realize how contrary our own nature is to God.
  • When we offer up ourselves we are offering an abomination to the Lord.
  • Nothing abominable is going to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, nor the Kingdom of God.
  • When we know the Lord in truth, His way is always the way of humility.
  • Jesus came in the form of a servant.
  • By mercy and truth iniquity is purged, the only time we can experience mercy is when we acknowledge truth. 
  • When we’re having a struggle we tend to blame everything and everyone around us. That is all pride, without exception.
  • We are sinners by nature, everyone is.
  • When the Word testifies against us, our tendencies are to turn away.  If we do that, we will never get purged nor set free. 
  • When He lifts us up, we are truly lifted up into all the good things of Him!
  • The apostles of the Lord were people just like us.  Humility lets us see that everything that was given unto them, is available to us as well. 
  • Why aren’t we doing the works of God?  Because we haven’t climbed the mountain of God.  We can only climb the mountain of God in humility. 
  • Pride is the impurity, when God shines his light into our hearts, if it’s filled with pride, the light will miss the mark. 
  • When we are full of pride, we will not bring truth but a perverted version. 
  • It is the Spirit of God that opens our understanding to the things of Him. 
  • Every man’s heart is only evil continually.  The only way to get free of the evil within our hearts, is to acknowledge the truth. 
  • Trust in the Lord, and His promise!  Take God seriously, not yourselves.
