How Do You Know?

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 180 Pages

How do you know? What is the process you use to discover truth? I did not ask that question during the first 25 years of my life. I used eleven different methods for discovering truth including: if my parents said so, then it was so. If my teacher said it was so, then it was so. If my pastor said it was so, then it was so. If my theology said it was so, then it was so. I have discarded them all and adopted a twelfth method, which is in harmony with what the Bible teaches. We teach you this method in this book.

How do you know? What is the process you use to discover truth? I did not ask that question during the first 25 years of my life. I used eleven different methods for discovering truth including: if my parents said so, then it was so. If my teacher said it was so, then it was so. If my pastor said it was so, then it was so. If my theology said it was so, then it was so. I have discarded them all and adopted a twelfth method, which is in harmony with what the Bible teaches. We teach you this method in this book.

What Does the Bible Say Is the Process God Wants Us to Use to Discover His Truth?

Satan's temptation in the Garden of Eden was that man could "eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and know himself." I wouldn’t need daily walks and talks with God, letting Him reveal truth to me. I could figure it out on my own. “YOU can KNOW” was satan’s lie to Adam (Gen. 2:17; 3:5).

So now the Bible speaks of knowledge versus true knowledge, man’s knowledge versus God’s knowledge.

True knowledge is birthed in revelation from God, which comes directly to man through the Holy Spirit. To receive this revelation knowledge man must yield his heart and his mind to the indwelling river of God - to "flow." This will result in reasoning together with God (Isa. 1:18), receiving words of wisdom, words of knowledge, prophecy, discerning of spirits and much, much more.

The Bible teaches us that God’s paradigm for knowing is a broad-based approach. You will discover God’s method as you work your way through hundreds of verses that form the base of this guided self-discovery manual.

This book lays out a Spirit-anointed epistemology requiring an educational paradigm shift from rationalism to revelation knowledge. The goal of education is stated in I Timothy 1:5 - love from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. These are all heart experiences, not mental exercises. And these are exactly the heart experiences that are required for us to come through the veil into God's presence and receive His voice, His wisdom, His anointing, His dream, and His vision (Heb. 10:19-22).

  • The philosopher would state it this way: “We are developing a Spirit-anointed epistemology requiring an educational paradigm shift from rationalism to revelation knowledge."
  • When Pilate asksWhat is truth?” Jesus had already stated the answer. “I am truth.” So truth is not a “what.” Truth is a person.
  • I could say it this way. When I seek truth, I discover it through a relationship with Jesus, in which I ask Him to reveal truth into my heart. The Bible says: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him." (Jas. 1:5)
  • The Spirit guides into all truth: "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. (Joh 16:13-15). Coming to truth is a process guided by the Spirit."
  • Hearing Jesus’ voice is evidence you are of the truth: "Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." Jn. 18:37.
  • With so much misinformation being presented daily on the airwaves, many are confused.  Only one side of many stories is even allowed to be told in today’s demonic climate. Actually, one of the videos in this series on "How Do YOU Know?" was rejected by U-tube as being "misinformation." I was touching on a culturally relevant topic and presented a view different from the government’s sanctioned view. I celebrate the fact that my messages are so culturally relevant that they can be kicked off social media. The Bible is clear, one must hear both sides if they want to come to a wise decision (Prov. 18:17). This is not being allowed in America today! 
  • In the accompanying video/audio series we examine EVERY verse where Jesus talks about coming to truth, and how that is done. Each video/audio session contains Scripture, my journaling and an opportunity for you to journal and hear from God. Learn how to acquire God's wisdom in a mixed-up world!
  • The truth sets one free (Jn. 8:32), but a faulty paradigm for discovering the truth will lead one to error as evidenced by the Apostles Paul's initial training (Acts 9:1-18; Phil. 3:1-11) and by the disciples whose theology was completely transformed once Jesus opened the Scriptures to them (Lk. 24:13-35). The Pharisees studied the Scriptures but without revelation from the spirit, Jesus rebuked them over and over (Matt. 12; 15; 16). The Bible without revelation from spirit brings legalism and death.
  • The training and courses we receive must teach us how to come to our hearts and allow God to live His life through us by His indwelling Holy Spirit. Then we are eating from the Tree of Life!
  • May you adopt God’s paradigm for knowing, so you can know God’s thoughts and do God’s deeds.

Hearing God Through Biblical Meditation

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 179 Pages | $15.99 retail list price

For many years I studied the Bible incorrectly, and it produced death rather than life. Even though I had a knowledge of the Scriptures, I did not personally experience the life and the realities they revealed. The Bible calls this the ministry of death, rather than the ministry of righteousness (2 Cor. 3:6–9). Upon coming out of Bible college, I found myself just like the apostle Paul, attacking those who disagreed with my theology.

How to Walk by the Spirit

How to Walk by the Spirit

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 136 Pages | Previous name "Sense Your Spirit"

Are you like many western Christians who have been taught little about how to sense their spirits? Do you have trouble even defining what spirit sensations feel like within you, much less recognizing them? This training was birthed from Mark’s passion to live out of his spirit, and thus release the anointing of God. The problem he faced was lack of clear biblical definition as to what his spirit felt like. So Mark looked up every verse in the Bible on heart and spirit.
