Flow Chart | The Mechanics of how the Holy Spirit teaches through spiritual things. He is the teacher of God's word and there is a pattern of doing this, comparing Spiritual with spiritual.
This Pattern is demonstrated in the Bible. Believers, God fearing men, not under-standing how the Holy Spirit teaches is the main cause of false doctrines in the church!

1. The Mechanics of How the Holy Spirit Teaches
2. The Mechanics of a Flow Chart
a must for the leaders of a corporate body.
First the Lord's Words
To follow after the “things of the Spirit” is the Highway!
Isaiah 35: 8
And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
The Lord said: I have a road for my Holy people to follow. This is a path that is plain and uncluttered. Seek My Face. Call upon My name. I will lead you in the way. For I am the Way.
River of Life
A River that allows God to get you to the place of His choice!
The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
The Lord said: My River leads to a place called destiny. Do you know it? Do you see it? In yourself and on your own you cannot see My purposes. My vision for your life. But in My River, you will see and know My purposes. My River is a place of definition. Be defined, in Me. Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Be an accurate expression of Me in the earth.
The Mechanics of a Flow Chart
A must for the leaders of a corporate body.
The Bible is a flow chart, written through men by the Spirit of God. We must remember God's ways are not our ways. A flow chart has everything to do with how the Holy Spirit teaches, leads, directs, and confirms God's Word to us, individually and corporately. To keep a flow chart and use it correctly is to, "compare spiritual with spiritual," continually allowing God free flow in what He wants to reveal.
I Corinthians 2:12,13
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual .
It is also the way to be able to add line upon line and precept upon precept concerning the Holy Spirit's leading and teachings, both in the church and in our personal lives. It's a vehicle the church is to use to bring together the "here a little, and there a little" into a picture of what God wants to reveal.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
It is a simple way you, as an individual or a corporate body, can follow after the "things of the Spirit" and not fall into condemnation. The existence of a flow chart allows a corporate body or an individual to walk in peace in the middle of a war!
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Many people think that Romans 8:1 says there is no condemnation if you are in Christ, inferring that if you are in Him you are automatically after the Spirit. It really says there is no condemnation to Christians who follow after the Spirit. Then in verse five it reveals that to follow after the Spirit (meaning the Holy Spirit) a Christian must mind (mentally be aware of, pay attention to) the "things of the Spirit," (plural, more than one thing). Following after doesn't mean you will get it right every time but it most certainly is true that if you keep following after, you will eventually get the victory! I can tell you the carnally minded Christian will think a flow chart is foolishness. This is scriptural, for the carnal mind is enmity against God. (Romans 8:7)
A flow chart will allow God to reveal things that you can get no other way. There have been books written about dreams, the forgotten language of God. I agree that He most certainly speaks through them. But I must make it plain, because the Lord has made it plain to me, that He gives the illumination, interpretation, and understanding of them through at least two or more "things of the Spirit." It can be as simple as living a dream already given, or having two or more dreams, etc. If you are continually having dreams on a certain subject or situation, it is because you haven't gotten the picture yet. There is something you are not seeing.
The carnal mind automatically interprets towards the pleasing of one's own flesh, beliefs and traditions. Keeping a flow chart correctly will bring you understanding of deeper things that you are unaware of in your life. If you are in the ditch (even unknown to you), it will be a vessel God can use to get you out. We must remember the Holy Spirit is showing us what we don't know, not what we do know!
Judging from my own experience, and most certainly proven through time in my life and the life of this ministry, keeping a flow chart is the only way to separate God's Spirit from our own. It is a way to let God give the understanding, rather than leaning to our own! The corporate flow chart for this ministry is the stabilizer and final direction giver of this ministry. That is because keeping it allows God to freely write and establish what He wants into our lives, both corporately and individually.
According to scripture, the Holy Spirit gives at His will. An established flow chart allows Him to have a free hand, so to speak! I can not emphasize this fact enough.
You must decide to establish a flow chart and write everything down. Not having an established flow chart lets a person get into things like: "This dream is not of God because it has evil in it," or "That Word doesn't fit, so I won't pay any attention to it." God simply can not do a complete work because you are throwing away part of the picture. This is true corporately and individually!
The Spirit of God is constantly presenting a picture, not only leading us to truth about ourselves but also revealing what God is doing all over the world. Below is a picture of the concept of a flow chart. In the beginning God told us it was like putting a puzzle together, here a little, there a little.
To give an example of how a picture is illuminated by adding "things of the Spirit" together, lets use something simple like the state of Kansas. On this site is a prophecy about Kansas through another man in 1989. I have included it here. We must realize that Words, dreams, and visions all fit together. They are different manifestations of the gift's of the Spirit of God.
"I will cause prophets to evolve out of Kansas, the Sunflower state. I will bring a major visitation of My Spirit to this area. I will call the heavens and the earth to take notice of what I will do in this state.
I will bring forth those who are highly educated concerning the Word of the Lord. I will raise up major prophetic voices who will sound from this place at the turn of the century, for in the 21st century, you will hear of men who have been in hiding coming forth one by one, speaking the oracle's of the Most High God.
I will turn the economy of this state, and oppressed areas shall be raised up. The Church in Kansas will also begin to re-evaluate its teaching.
There will be a sudden change in their theology concerning the last day events. The church in this state will be brought out of delusion, which will try to sweep the entire country at the close of the century."
Now let's add some other visions people have had to this Word. One man's vision I know about is where fire comes down from heaven into Kansas and then spreads in all directions from the point it came down. (This man believes the fire came down in Sumner county and lives here now because of the vision.) Of course the fire is the cleansing fire of God and most certainly has to do with getting rid of the doctrines of men. When you add the knowledge that God uses the office of a prophet to correct His church, this Word and vision fit together very well. Changed teachings and being brought out of a delusion fits the cleansing fire. Actually, the Word and the vision illuminate each other.
Another man's vision was where a branding iron came down and branded Kansas, starting a fire that spread from that branding iron in all directions. It illuminates the picture further, even if it was just conformation. We must understand that a branding iron burns flesh, which is one of the main players in the harlot (spotted) church. A branding iron also establishes ownership. The church is supposed to be God's and thus the vision infers the establishment of His cleansed church , not the harlot!
Here I add another vision, of another man, concerning Kansas. He saw circles all connected by lines to each other. I assume this to be like a road map that shows roads, between cities, all connected. Is it the Internet, or what? Nevertheless, when placed in a flow chart of Kansas with other Words and scenes I know nothing about, I am sure it fits God's big picture of what He is doing. I have included this one to let you know that you should keep a record, whether it fits now or not. Through time it will either be dispelled or illuminated with understanding because it is in the flow chart.
After you have had a flowchart for a while, it becomes a safety device. In my own life, this ministry's flow chart has identified a prophet operating in charismatic circles under the influence of a familiar spirit, unknown to him. The Word he gave to me sounded great, looked great, and seemed logical in my situation at that particular time. But it went against the flow chart and what I had been told personally. The familiar spirit was very familiar with my situation at the time. Satan wanted to lead me away from God's plan. Every church needs a flow chart for it's leadership. It is a necessity to keep on God's path and expose the false!
What I wanted you to see with the "things of the Spirit" about Kansas is how simply Words and visions illuminate each other when you bring them together. When God brought this group together He told us to start a flow chart and to tape all prayer meetings. He told us to bring all prophecies, words of knowledge and wisdom, dreams, and visions, etc., into one place and record them.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
The reason He said this is because we forget or we unknowingly change what was really said. One change of any word will change the meaning and that's why He told Israel to write His Word on the doorposts of their houses. He knew they would error and forget what was said exactly. God knew they needed to be reminded daily!
Writing information down exactly as given and dating it is very important. I don't know how many times I thought I remembered a Word or a scene from God, only to look back and find I had remembered it wrong. When God told us to keep a flow chart I didn't know what one was, especially one with dreams and visions in it. I saw no purpose for it. I finally started writing all my dreams and visions, in detail, in a notebook. I started a time line, thinking it was a flow chart. It became very interesting and soon I had experienced enough to announce that by following a flow chart, one could get delivered from things they were unaware of in their lives (that God doesn't want there).
The flow chart of my own scenes in the night, visions, etc., became so important that I titled my notebook "Instruct," meaning instruction from the Lord through the Holy Spirit. To give you an idea of the massiveness of this notebook, I have to start a new one every year. "1998 Instruct" has 181 pages of typewritten information, single spaced, in 11, and sometimes 12 sized fonts."1999 Instruct" has 121 pages, single spaced, all in 11 font. Along with this is a corporate flow booklet for each year containing information of what God does and says, or reveals, in all the meetings. All this is confirming information and keeps us on a steady path to what God has for us to do in these last days. A flow chart is definitely a faith builder.
I have not shared this with you to scare you into thinking a flow chart is an impossible task and too hard to achieve. If everyone will work in unity it will flow and come together. My calling has a lot to do with the massive amount of information given by the Holy Spirit. A flow chart is simply a vehicle we can use to stay on a steady course. If you look through this ministry's flow chart, you can see that we have made circles, coming back to what we missed the first time.
One secret to a flow chart is to write everything down in detail. Numbers, colors, characters, etc., all have in-depth meanings. God uses symbolism so that we can better understand the thought behind the Word and sometimes feel His heartbeat.
God has led us into places we wouldn't have normally gone. "Take His Heart's" web site is the result of having a flow chart, by bringing more than one "thing of the Spirit" together. A flow chart brings deeper understanding to a person that can not be obtained any other way because the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing Spiritual with spiritual. He is the one who searches the deep things of God!
1 Corinthians 2:9,10
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Having a flow chart enables the leadership to be really led by the Lord, consequently affecting the whole corporate body. All should take part because God can give "things of the Spirit" to anyone. The circle with the dots on it represents members of this ministry. All are to present the "things of the Spirit" given to them. You will notice dots outside that circle. These represent people who are not a permanent part of this particular ministry. Their "things of the Spirit," given to this ministry, are also put into the pool (the flow chart).
It is very important that information from prayer groups in the body be put into the flow chart. I know of a church that collapsed and one of the main reasons was because the pastor was not paying any attention to what God was revealing in the church prayer group. He was asking advice of his colleagues, other pastors he was associated with. This is a harlotrous act of intimacy with men and not the act of an upright Bride, which is to have intimacy with the Lord and the Lord alone. The first responsibility of a corporate prayer group of any church is to inquire of the Lord what He wants. Is there something we are completely unaware of that He wants to reveal or say! He is the leader of the church, not men.
A flow chart allows a lot of things to be dealt with at the same time. It shows a bigger picture of what God is doing than any other means.
Understanding of the following scripture is important when keeping a flow chart.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Sometimes the precepts can be far apart in time. For instance, lately the Lord has been dealing with me about how a corporate body becomes married to Him. He told me that I know how the marriage ceremony takes place. But some time ago the Lord had given me some words in a scene in the night which concerned marriage to Him. They were words of truth concerning the matter! I had forgotten all about the scene. What I want you to see is this. He had given this information to me on Jan 29th, 1998, almost two years ago. You see, "here a little, and there a little" can be pretty far apart by our standards.
I have drawn a picture of a corporate flow chart, to give you a better idea of how I started. Let's take the red boxes. They all have to do with the same precept or subject; given, here a little, there a little, through time. Each box contains the date, type of meeting, who it came through, and the information. The choice is yours as to whether you put all the information in the box or give a brief outline of its content. You must however, have enough information in the box to be able to see its link to another box. And if you do this you must also record the information in detail in a notebook or somewhere else.
God says in the last days He will pour out His spirit on all flesh and there will be dreams and visions. He is doing this for a purpose, not for fun. A picture is worth a 1000 words and certainly part of why God gives us pictures (like through a flow chart) to enlighten us. I will not imply that flow charts are easy but they are necessary to keep our spirits, flesh, and traditions from ruling us and causing us to miss the Lord's real leading towards Brideship.
I used to worry about getting the correct interpretation until finally the Lord told me, "Interpreting is not the problem, getting it all down is." It takes time, but eventually you will see the Lord work in a corporate body, in a way you have never seen before. If every church had a flow chart they would be on their way to letting God rid them of spots, in preparation for marriage to the Lord. After you have kept a flow chart for a while you will see how it practically interprets itself, but you have to use your mind to add things up. Remember, whatever the Holy Spirit is revealing, it's always simple enough for us to understand.
When God is dealing with deeper things
that you don't know or understand:
1. One "thing of the Spirit," plus your thinking = leaning to your own understanding.
2. Two "things of the Spirit," or more, can = revelation and understanding from God by comparing spiritual with spiritual.
