Daily Seedings: Revelation And Impartation


Revelation And Impartation

That you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
— Ephesians 3:19

Revelation of God not only brings conviction, but it also brings impartation. When one gets a revelation of the love of God, that love will be shed abroad in the heart. A revelation of the holiness of God will make one holy. A revelation of the knowledge of God will impart Divine knowledge. Each revelation brings transformation.

Many people have a revelation of the love of God; that is very wonderful. But in His character, He is much more than love. The Scripture states that our God is holy, just, and faithful.

These Divine revelations bring impartations of the Divine characteristics and virtues into our lives. If we have a revelation of the God of love, impartation of the love of God comes to our souls. Even when I sense my lack of faith and yet have a revelation of the faithfulness of God, the faith of God is planted within me.

When we have a full, well-rounded revelation of God, we come to be filled with all the fullness of God. This is truly the perfection of a Christian character. Thus, we can see that the great need of this hour is to have a full revelation so that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.

I am reminded of the words of Jesus, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23). In the same chapter, Jesus also spoke of the coming of the Comforter. By this passage, I saw that God must still manifest Himself. The glorious fullness of Divine Character must still be in operation. The present-day expression of the Godhead is the expression of the Church of Jesus Christ.

About the Author: Ivan Q. Spencer was a pastor, educator, and Pentecostal pioneer. In 1924, he founded Elim Bible Institute to train young men and women for last days' revival ministry. As graduates left Elim and pursued national and international ministry, he formed Elim Fellowship in 1932 to commission and credential graduates. Ivan received his training for ministry from Rochester Bible Training School in Rochester, New York. He attended the constitutional convention of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) in May of 1943 and served on the Board of Administration for the Pentecostal Fellowship of North America from its inception in 1948. Ivan died at the age of 81 on August 17, 1970. His life of faith was chronicled in Ivan Spencer: Willow in the Wind by Marion Meloon. Two posthumous publications contain Ivan's thoughts on faith: Faith: Living the Crucified Life and Daily Seedings: A Devotional Classic for the Spirit-filled Life.
