A person should not gorge on human food or his digestion is impeded. A person seeking spiritual truth should not gorge on spiritual food or the person will not absorb the complete truth. His or her revelation knowledge of the truth in the teaching will be thwarted if he gorges on spiritual food.
Paul said that milk should only be fed to babies, not meat. But, he also chided certain of My children that they should be eating meat but were still drinking milk, constantly laying the same foundations. He said they should go on to more spiritual matters.
The ones who eat spiritual meat should still follow the same principle of spiritual digestion, precept by precept, line upon line, here a little, there a little until you have gleaned the truth of the teaching so that you can walk firmly in that truth, that key to My kingdom, and it is second nature to you. When it is fully revealed, it can never be taken away from you.
There is a tendency in new converts to gorge, gorge, gorge, wanting to know all of the truths immediately. That is dangerous because that truth very often will be regurgitated if not fully digested.
Take the quest of seeking truth slowly, eating a little at a time, then meditating on that truth until it is fully revealed by My Spirit. Then practice walking in that truth. Truth is not beneficial unless it is workable in your life. Book learning without practical application is useless. Mere book learning creates pride. Practical application of truth in a person's life brings humility.
