Heb. 5: 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Isa: 28: 9 Whom shall he teach knowledge?
and whom shall he make to understand doctrine?
them that are weaned from the milk,
and drawn from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line;
here a little, and there a little:
11 for with stammering lips and another tongue
will he speak to this people.
12 To whom he said,
This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest;
and this is the refreshing:
yet they would not hear.
In Hebrews 5, we are shown that all children of God need to grow up in knowledge and become TEACHERS. it is not just for a few certain ones. It is for all saved folks.
But instead of growing up and becoming teachers, they need someone to teach them again the very first oracles, or that beginning foundation, which he said to LEAVE and GO ON TO PERFECTION.
This is showing you how to do this.
Everyone that uses milk is UNSKILFUL in the Word, for he is a babe.
So your pastor is unskilful in the Word. He is a babe, himself, still on the breast. So then how is he going to help you? or teach you? cannot be; so it stifles your own growth, holding you in prison and a babe, who will eventually DIES for lack of nourishment.
In Isaiah 28, we are told that the ones who will learn doctrine, is those who are weaned from the breasts and drawn from the milk. So all who are still on the milk of the word, or that beginning foundation, are not growing up in Christ. So they cannot come to the perfection.
They will never know the truth, for they are unskilful in the Word. To be skilful in the Word means you have studied it enough to know what is in it and where to find it, so that you can bring verses together and come to understand the deep things of God; the secrets of God, hidden in the spiritual language of Scripture.
Now believe it or not, the speaking in tongues, which came on the day of Pentecost, is prophesied right here.
God said, this is the REST.
God said, this is the refreshing.
Jesus said, come unto me and I will give you REST.
So without this speaking in tongues, you have not the rest to your souls. But your baby pastor told you this is not for us. may as well say, salvation is not for us. This is how you can prove which is right and which is wrong. Find the verse saying it is not for us today.
