Changing your altitude will give you an aerial view of your faith

Changing your altitude will give you an aerial view of your faith

2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight):

 

  • It is your altitude that will teach you how to walk by faith and not by sight.
  • Faith is walked out from an aerial view.
  • Dreams and visions are seen from an aerial view.
  • A spiritual mind will cause you to see all things going on in you, around you, and with you from an aerial view.
  • An aerial view of your faith is seen like pictures being photographed in the desired expectations of the thoughts of God seen through your dreams and visions.
  • Aerial by definition means existing, happening, or operating in the air.
  • Faith is NOW. Faith is the substance of the evidence not seen with the natural eye, but seen as a “function”. We are made after the likeness (Genesis 1:26) of God, meaning we function like God. How does God function? God functions by a substance called faith.
  • Faith seen in the natural is not faith! Faith seen and touched in the natural is not faith! Faith touched and produced by you is not faith! Especially when the Lord has you in a mode called “wait”.
  • Faith operates from an altitude that confuses the Will of your flesh. Why? Because the flesh is of the serpentine nature and dies in height, elevation.
  • The works of the flesh found in Galatians 5:19-21 is of the nature of the world and Satan.
  • Altitude means height; a high or the highest point; vertical elevation above any given point.
  • Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
  • Hope means to desire with expectation of fulfillment; desire accompanied by expectation. HOPE+BELIEF=FAITH
  • Hope is the desired expectation of your faith in Christ Jesus. Psalm 130:5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
  • Hope is a state of mind based upon an expectation of an outcome produced by the Word of God. Psalm 146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:
  • Hope in anything else except the Word is failure in your Soul’s return home to Kingdom living. Psalm 119:81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
  • Faith is a “substance of hope” for the believer.
  • Faith is belief without evidence with hope desired to accompany the expectation of the evidence believed in.
  • Faith only operates from a height that is unknown to the 5-senses of the flesh realm.

 

  • Salvation is an altitude changer that is designed to take you up into a place that is higher than your natural being that is the flesh man, so you can be in relations with God the Father.
  • Your soul is made up of the breath of God which gave you/us life and is Spirit.
  • This makes us a spirit being incased in a body that is capable of operating in and at an altitude of faith.
  • God’s plan of salvation for all mankind is “fool proof”! It is IMPOSSIBLE, INCAPABLE OF GOING WRONG OR MISUSED.
  • We must be able to fellowship with God in Spirit and in Truth from the spiritual realm of His Being.
  • Faith makes it possible for us to travel in Him to Him; to love Him; and to know and understand all our need and desires that are “lodged” or “hidden” only in Him for us.
  • Our faith also from an altitude of belief is what makes it possible to have fellowship in love for all mankind.
  • Faith allows you to see not only from an aerial view for yourself but also for all others as the Lord God permits.
  • Faith gives you the substance of your blueprint that is hoped inside of you by God. This is how God has placed everything inside of you to be initialized and activated by Him.
  • You must have the ability to function like Him in order to release this hoped for substance, but it cannot be done without God. This is the trigger the Will of God in you– the mechanism that fires the explosives in you to release His built-in success in the desires and thoughts of God toward you.
  • Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
  • God holds the ammunitions and pulls the triggers to activate the blueprint of your life in Him in the earth realm.
  • He is the painter that paints the portrait of your life in Him.
  • He is the writer of your life’s story, every chapter, paragraph, and verse.
  • Leaders, is God waking you up to hear His heart toward His people through your daily bread?
  • Everything in the world under the systems of man is created and designed for you to continue to work hard and earn your living by the sweat of your brow.
  • Jesus said in St Matthew 11:28-29
  • 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
  • 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
  • Walking with God in relationship and according to His Will, He reveals and releases His built in success that He has put inside of you. Then you can walk, talk, and live in the hope of the Will of God.
  • Life is a period of waiting! You can’t rush it nor can you get ahead of it. So why not just let God guide, lead, and instruct you in your new life as a new creature?
  • Romans 15:13 Now the God of hop fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

 

Amen

Who Then Can be Saved?

Who then can be saved?

 

The natural man has tried to replace God with himself, meaning he is a god and is godless. The natural man wants to answer to himself and not to the Creator of his soul.

The natural man still has an aught with God for putting him out of the paradise he once knew and causing him to have to work; and labor and work hard when all God had to do was just keep things simple and let him stay in the Garden, laid back.

The natural man knowing good and evil now would think in his heart, “you are God, you love me, and you created me to take care of me”.

If we notice this same spirit is in the functioning and operating in the systems of this world.

If you notice the systems of this world are designed to keep the man lazy, in bondage under one another, and always finding ways to deceive and be deceitful so the systems can take care of him.

All this because the natural man has tried to replace God in his life!

 

St Matthew 19:16-25 Summary

 

            The rich young ruler approached Jesus calling Him good Master, wanting to know what good can he do to have eternal life? Of course Jesus asked him, why do you call me good when there is only one good that is God?

            Jesus told him if you will enter into “life” keep the commandments.

            The rich you ruler responded to Jesus sounding smart and intelligent and without flaw, which?

            Jesus said, thou shalt not murder; thou shalt not commit adultery; thou shalt not steal; thou shalt not bear false witness; honor thy father and mother; and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself (that is brotherly love). Verses 18 & 19.

            The young ruler said to Jesus, all these things have I kept since I was a child (a little boy). What else do I lack? Verse 20.

            Here comes the conditions of perfection! Jesus said if you desire (will) to be perfect, go and sell all that you have and give it to the poor; then you shall have treasures in Heaven and come follow me. Verse 21.

            But when the young man heard the saying of Jesus, he left the presence of Jesus sad, sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Verse 22.

            Jesus then told His disciples, that a rich man shall hardly (meaning its true to an insignificant degree, but it is possible if he gives up) enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. In other words, his riches will hinder him from reverencing the true King of the Kingdom which is God Himself. Verse 23.

            Jesus said, again it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. Verse 24.

           

When the disciples heard this they questioned this salvation? They needed Jesus to explain their giving up all and following Him.

Who then can be saved?

 

I keep telling everyone the key to having faith in the Word of God is to “hear” the Word of God.

 

St Matthew 19:26-30

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

 

27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

 

            Behold means to see or observe a thing or a person.

 

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

 

            Regeneration spiritually means that God brings believers to new life or born again from a previous state of separation from God and subjection to the decay of death (Ephesians 2:4).

 

29 And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

 

            This is the reward for discipleship!

            Forsake means to leave or withdraw from; renounce; desert.

            Name sake is a person or thing that has the same name as another. If we are being led by the Spirit then we have the same name as Jesus – A son of God.

Family is important! But does not override the namesake of Jesus Christ!

 St Matthew 12:49-50

49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

 

Spiritual relationship takes preeminence! It overrides flesh and blood.

 

1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

 

30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

 

There are two ways, but only one way to enter into the Kingdom of God. There are two ways to spiritually strive: the spiritual way or the evil way of sin and its destruction.

 

 

 

St Matthew 7:13-14

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

1 Peter 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once, the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, where in few, that is eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure where unto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

Baptism is important and is necessary for the saving of your soul, not your flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God and toward the resurrection of Jesus Christ in you.

Baptism is a symbol of the death of the old nature (man) to be resurrected as a new creature with a new nature that is of Jesus Christ.

Baptism is applied to regeneration. Baptism must be a desire in you to be born again and not prompted by someone saying to do so.

Regenerate means to cause complete moral and spiritual reformation; to produce or form anew.

 

St John 3:5-6 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

 

A life spiritual is….

  • Bearing Christlikeness is what enables a believer to know and do what the word says. This is truly a spiritual life!!
  • Life spiritual is a life that exists as a spiritual being in a human body.
  • A life that has and is connected back to our Creator, our Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus.
  • It is a lifetime of searching the Word of God willingly and obediently to obey God’s Way.
  • A life lived in faith by faith that will give you a relationship with God through Jesus Christ to live in holiness, through the gift of the Holy Spirit in order to live a life in the Spirit and be disciplined by the Spirit.
  • A life spiritual is one that is practiced to habit here in earth that gives pleasure to our Father, and not grieves Him.
  • A spiritual life is one that you’re more concerned about with God about the state of your Soul than with materialistic things or stuff.

A Trained Ear To Hear

A trained ear to hear

A foundational principle of salvation that forms relationship with God is through the ability to hear

 

Let’s set up the stage to hear!

Hearing carry a perception to conceive what you have heard.

Spiritual hearing is the power (meaning the ability to do) to hear, perceive, and conceive what you have heard for a spiritual manifestation in your heart. And once it gets in your heart, then and only then will you be able to walk in the spirit and not fulfill the lust of your flesh and the flesh of others, the world, and the devil.

Spiritual hearing is a process that begins with and when you make your confession with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, then you are saved. Romans 10:9

Since the heart is the center of life, the Word says for with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10. This gets the process of salvation to building in you!

Spiritual hearing is now in progress! Once that ear has perceived it must conceive to awaken the Soul and put what you’ve heard in the heart.

Spiritual hearing requires the spirit and soul’s ability to hear and do what is heard.

            Now to hear the Word of God is not an outer ear process! So STOP saying you are hearing when in fact you are only listening!

 

Amplified KJV Isaiah 50:4-5

4 [The Servant of God says] The Lord God has given Me the tongue of a disciple and of one who is taught, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He wakens Me morning by morning. He wakens My ear to hear as a disciple [as one who is taught].

5 The Lord God has opened My ear, and I have not been rebellious or turned backward.

 

We know that these verses of scripture are referring to Jesus and His ability to follow the voice of God in all instructions to do His Will in earth. Jesus exemplified spiritual receptivity between the Father and the Word.

 

The scripture is giving us a general truth or law that is a basic foundation in salvation in and for every believer.

 

Scriptures that relate to the hearing ear: Psalm 40:6; Proverbs 18:15; 20:12; 25:12; St Matthew 13:16

 

  • An ear is of the faculty of perceiving with the mind, understanding and knowing.
  • It is the chief instrument by which man perceives information and commandments.
  • The inner ear is the organ of spiritual perception. If the ear hears the heart willingly submits, but often the spiritual ear is hardened.

 

Hearing the Word of God starts with an honest and good heart, that will hear the Word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience (St Luke 8:15)

 

  • What is a trained ear to hear? An ear that will bring you to a requisite standard, as of conduct or skill, by protracted and careful instruction; specifically, to mold the character of; educate; instruct. An ear that is obedient
  • When the Spirit of God trains your ear He can then give you the vision. Why? Because my sheep know my voice and a stranger they will not hear.
  • A trained ear is an ear that will attract the gift of Wisdom and they operate together in the Will of God.
  • A trained ear is a keen ear that is sharp, and is exceptionally intelligent! Why? Because it is operating in the Will of God!
  • A trained ear works for the Holy Ghost.
  • A trained ear is opened by the spiritual receptivity of the Word of God.

 

  • What is an obedient ear? An ear that hears with conviction and has been disciplined and is fully awakened to the awareness of the sense of sin in their life.
  • An obedient ear says I do only what I hear MY FATHER which art in Heaven says do.
  • An obedient ear that hears the Spirit of God waits patiently to hear the Word and its Will to do.
  • Has your ear been blessed to hear the Word of God? Has it been trained to hear that still small voice of the Spirit of God Himself? Or are you still listening to your feelings, your gut, and your intuition? Who is really speaking to your ear?

 

  • What is an uncircumcised ear? An ear that is inattentive and disobedient toward the Word of God. This is what’s really in your heart.
  • An uncircumcised ear that hears the Word of God imperfectly because they hear only what they want to hear; or they hear with such a strong prejudice that they will reject the truth; or knowing something that is coming from God and they automatically reject it.
  • An uncircumcised ear says after its all said and done, “Well, I’m going to do what I want to do anyway”.

 

  • What are itching ears? Itching ears are ears that have become tired of sound truth and long for new deceitful teachings.
  • Do your ears always carry you to places where your soul is not being feed?
  • Do your ears lead you away like as silly women laden with sin being captive and led away in your divers lusts? 2 Timothy 3:6
  • In other words, do your ears hearing drive you into your secret sins that you think don’t nobody know but you and the one you are in sin with?
  • 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold.
  • At what degree do you hear? What type of hearer are you? Are you an emotional hearer; shallow hearer; careless hearer; or a dull hearer? Study the Parable of the Sower, St Matthew 13:19-23.
  • What kind of ear are you hearing the Word of God with?

 

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.

Proverbs 15:31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

 

In Closing of this message say,

 

An ear of the learned is a trained ear to hear. It will form relationship with the Father who is the Bishop of your soul.

  • A learned ear is an ear that will acquire the knowledge of the Spirit of God.
  • A learned ear is an ear that will study the knowledge of the Spirit of God, in Spirit and in Truth.
  • A learned ear is an ear that will follow the instructions of the Spirit of God.
  • A learned ear is an ear that will practice its hearing ability in the Will of God, in Spirit and in Truth.
  • A learned ear only walks in the Spirit!
  • A learned ear works in and with the fruit of the Spirit, as they all operate and function in the gifts of the Spirit in obedience.
  • A learned ear is always willing and eager to do everything God’s way.

 

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

 

St Matthew 11:15 He that hath ears to hear let him hear.

 

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

 

Do you know the difference between the spiritual teachers and your leader? Or do you just know the leader that is teaching?

The Will of the Soul or the 5-senses of the Flesh Who’s making the choices?

The Will of the Soul or the 5-senses of the Flesh

Who’s making the choices?

 

  • The human Will is so powerful that God Himself does not control it, nor will He control it.
  • There is nothing on the earth that is as powerful as the “human Will” of the spirit man.
  • The nature of the Will implies “self-control”. God gave us the “power” (the ability to do) of Will.
  • Your Will determines your destiny.
  • The human Will is God’s agency plan for God’s Kingdom to be administrated in the earth realm.
  • In other words, God intended to use the Will of man to fulfill it with His Will to operate Kingdom in earth as well as in Heaven.
  • The problem with the Will of man is that it belongs to the spirit man.
  • The human Will can be and or is the most dangerous gift God gave to the spirit man.
  • The human Will can be and is the most precious gift God ever gave to the spirit man, because God gave us the same power that He possesses – the power of His Will.
  • What makes the human Will dangerous? It is dangerous because of its “ability to choose against God”. Now this is dangerous!
  • Satan even knows how dangerous this is! Mankind does not know or understand the power of their Will against God.
  • Some of the dangerous ways are through doubt, unbelief, and rebellion.
  • Not to mention the works of the flesh that comes against the Soul and Spirit of man.
  • The power of the Will give us the power to choose, even against the one that gave us the Will.

 

The Soul….

  • The Soul of the spirit man is where the Will is located.
  • The Soul is the natural life of the Body. It is the immaterial, visible part of the spirit man.
  • The Will is not located in the 5-senses.
  • The Soul is made up of 3 parts: the mind, the Will, and emotions.
  • The mind is defined as the heart. We have two minds: conscious and subconscious minds.
  • The Will controls your destiny.
  • Emotion is the power of feeling, with or without a corresponding trend of activities; any strong manifestation or disturbance of the conscious or the unconscious mind, typically involuntary and often leading to complex bodily changes and forms of behavior.
  • The seat of the Will is where the conscious and subconscious minds are located.
  • The Will lives in the heart.
  • The heart is the subconscious mind. The heart is the seat of control for our life.
  • The conscious mind feed the subconscious mind! The more the conscious mind hears repetitious information; it feeds or downloads it into the subconscious mind.
  • We are safe as long as thoughts are in the conscious mind, because we can forget what is in the conscious mind; but the key to getting information in the subconscious mind (the heart) is through repetitious repeats. For example reading porn, watching porn gets porn in the heart, along with other bodily sins.
  • The mind is the center of thought and it holds the key to your life.

 

The 5-senses of the Flesh (Body)….

  • The 5-senses are: see, smell, and taste, touch, and hear.
  • Theses senses operate in the body of man, aka: that “sin suit” that we all are born in.
  • The body gets information from what it sees, smells, and taste, touch and hears.
  • The body transmits to the soul.
  • The soul transmits to the spirit, and the spirit has to deal with the unrighteousness that the body has transmitted to the soul.
  • Your spirit can’t give to the body what your soul did not receive!
  • Your soul is in a “mental battle” when the body don’t do what the Spirit tells it to do. Your soul is in “torment, turmoil”.
  • The soul feeds the spirit, but also fees the body through the soul.

 

Faith comes by hearing! Hearing comes through the body. The body hears something, your soul takes it, choose to believe it or reject it, then give it to your spirit.

We must be careful as to what we allow our 5-senses to indulge in.

When the body loves its sinful works from such things as drugs, alcohol, porn, lying, abuse, committing adultery, jealousy, cursing profanely, partying, etc. These things are all about taste, seeing, touching, and smelling. All, which are a part of the 5-senses!

Your soul begins to emotionally enjoy these things that your body indulges in, but the spirit rejects it. If you repeat these sinful acts it will be downloaded in your heart, then when you want to quit drugs, alcohol, porn, lying, compromising, etc., it is now downloaded in your subconscious mind (heart).

So when you get saved, or as you’re being saved you continue to get saved over and over and over again, but never get your heart cleansed or your conscience cleansed from these habits, addictions, and practices that are still lodged in your heart because the Word of God is not being heard to transform you into being a new creature.

This is why people have been saved for years and years with no change in their heart (mind) with their conscience being “seared” (Hebrews 10:1-3) with the remembrance of the body’s sinful ways and acts.

Without spiritual cleansing the sacrifices of the flesh are not effective to take away sins because once you are purged through the Word of God you should no longer have a conscience of sins or indulge with sin. This is why salvation is hard for some and many of others!

Flesh stays in control! The soul stays in a mental battle of distress mode! The spirit has nothing to neither lean on nor turn to, because the Word of God is not heard!

 

In Closing

Except your soul is converted and returned back to his Creator, your 5-senses will always try to reign over your Soul and Spirit?

The soul is the most important part of the trinity of man.

The body can only operate in the “works of the flesh” Galatians 5:19-21. Your body will never ever be saved.

The devil or Satan knows that we hold the “key” to his battle with God. The key is your soul!

Satan is not after your body! But will use it through your 5-senses to come against the Will of God and the Will of God toward His people.

The Will of your Soul carries the healing power from within for the body to stay healed and be utilized as a transporter for the Spirit of God, His Word, and His Will in earth.

Your body will never obey the Will of God! Your body and its senses will never do the Will of God.

Your subconscious mind is your heart. You are whatever is in your heart (subconscious mind).

Whoever or whatever is controlling your heart controls your life.

 

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

 

Some of us are still trying to perform the same habits we practiced in the body as a new creature. These habits have been downloaded in your heart and must be cleaned out of your heart through the Word of God.

Being born again! We are Being cleaned through and through with the Word of God to be filled with the Holy Ghost. This is the consistent process of our being in salvation!

Being is the quality or state of having existence.

We are “being” born again in Christ Jesus to be like Christ Jesus to become a Son of God. As long as we have existence in this earth realm with breathe still remaining in us we are being born again.

The Spirit Of A Thing

The spirit of a thing that is worldly is designed to alienate (estrange; to cause you to feel estranged or withdrawn from) the spirit and soul of man by using the consequences of the fall of man made through choice to cause man to not see his need for God, the Father.

 

Now, as we get started evaluate as we teach tonight that thing, that very thing that is governing your life and its existence, what is the spirit of it?

 

Thing is that which exists or is conceived to exist as a separate entity; entity; being.

Demonic is of, resembling, or characteristic of demons or evil spirits.

 

  • Demonic spirits are around us waiting to be conceived by you from your choices made out of the Will of God in word, deed, action, and thought.
  • Demonic spirits are a thing! They are drawn to us from our choices in word, deed, action, and thought.
  • Demons oppose God’s sovereign control.
  • They are angelic entities who oppose God’s sovereign control to work out their unholy rebellion through influencing believers to live in a way contrary to God’s intentions. And at the same time they remain under God’s sovereign authority and are used by God to affect His Divine plan in you.
  • Demonic spirits need a body in the earth realm to live and survive.
  • Demonic spirits are spiritual beings that need your body to exist. They pretend to be friendly spirits to deceive (2 Corinthians 11:15); blind the minds of believers (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
  • They lead believers astray from truth through the pursuit of their pleasures or sensual gratifications. (Ephesians 5:6)
  • The world has demonic spirits that are operating from its choices without the Spirit of God.
  • The same thing happens to us when we are without the Spirit of God or try to live worldly and in righteousness.
  • Every choice we make carries a spirit of that choice.
  • Every word we release, hear, and accept carries a spirit with that word.
  • Believers’ are not immune from demonic attacks. They seek to influence Christian believer’s through false doctrines and teachings (1 Timothy 4:1; 1 John 4:1-4); as well as through false miracles and wonders.

 

It’s time to go higher to activate and operate in spiritual discernment. Spiritual discernment (the mental power of keenness of judgment; insight) signifies to separate, discriminate; then learn by discriminating to determine and decide.

Spiritual discernment is not a feeling! It cannot be felt through your 5 senses!

Spiritual discernment is used in spiritual warfare, your spiritual warfare first!

Spiritual discernment can only be used when walking in the Spirit.

Spiritual discernment is used to discern your condition first, as well as judging evil in other believers.

 

St Matthew 7:3-5

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thing eye; and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

           

Mote is a minute particle; speck.

            Beam is a long, horizontal piece of wood, stone, or metal, forming part of the frame of a building; the widest part of anything.

 

The world, the flesh, and the devil are inducers (to lead on to a specific action, belief, etc., by persuasion or influence) and seducers (to lead astray; entice into wrong; tempt) of the spirit of a thing.

It’s time to know the spirit of a thing – your thing before indulging in, celebrating it, and memorializing it.

Jesus said to be in the world, but not of the world. What does that mean?

In the life of Christ Jesus in the earth when demons confronted Jesus: the boy with the seizures (St Matthew 17:1-20); the silencing of demons (St Matthew 8:16); etc.

 

Jesus always demonstrated compassion for the people and authority over the spirits.

(St Luke 4:36).

            Most of what we are used to seeing today in the Houses today is exorcism rituals that are unsuccessful.

            Demons are cast out by the Spirit of God (St Matthew 12:28) by the finger of God and this was done by verbal command rather than elaborate rituals of exorcists.

            Jesus gave the disciples the authority to cast out demons (St Matthew 10:1, 8) and to others to cast them out in the name of Jesus (St Mark 9:38-41).

            The authority is being seated with Christ. Our identity is being in Christ. Our weapon is our authority.

 

Romans 12:1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 

Mortify your flesh and offer yourself as a sacrifice, acceptable to God.

Conform is to make like or similar in form or character. Conform to the Word!

Transform is to give a different form to; change the character of; to alter the nature of; convert. Be transformed in the new creature that salvation offers, which is Jesus Christ!

 

The world is worldly! It carries the spirit of the thing that it incorporates.

The world operates and functions as stated in Galatians 5:19-21 as the works of the flesh, the evil works of the flesh, and sins fruit produced from the works of the flesh.

 

St John 17:9, 15-16, 18, 20

9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

            And that word is the Word of God!

 

St Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

            This is the spirit that we should have as we are called and ordained to enter into the vineyard for the harvest.

 

The spirit of the world verses the Spirit of the Church

How do you know if you are in the Body of Christ, which is the Church reformed? Or still in the world trying to operate as the Church?

 

The world celebrates, accepts, exemplifies, and acknowledges all the works of the flesh. In other words, the world only acknowledges its own!

We as believers are caught in a snare, entangled in tradition and religion trying to do what the world is doing and live the way of Christ Jesus.

The spirit of the world is carnality! So is everything about it is.

The world uses its own to entangle you in your belief in Christ Jesus. They did it to Jesus and so will they do it to you.

St Matthew 22:15-46 (Summarized), the Pharisees and Sadducees took counsel and plotted on how to trap Jesus in His talk, so they sent their own disciples with their beliefs.

The world and its own does the same thing to you through your unsaved family and friends. They come to get you to talk and discuss the joy of your salvation to them so they can try to pervert you with what they believe in from the world’s point of view.

But spiritual discernment with Wisdom will allow you to perceive their wickedness against you! And the Holy Ghost in you will speak!

 

2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

 

This is why you must untangle yourself with the world and its worldliness! You must totally denounce the world and its way, which will destroy the entanglement of its sin upon you and against you.

You may say that I have a business or my job keeps me dealing with the world! Yes, this is true but walking in the Spirit, hearing in the Spirit will allow the Spirit in you to know how to go in and out of your livelihood without being in error to compromise the truth in you.

The Spirit of God in you will either draw the ones you have to work for or with or it will withdraw them from you.

Remember St John 6:44, the Spirit of God has to spiritually attract a Soul to draw them to the Christ Jesus displayed and portrayed in your life.

44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

As the Spirit of God guide and lead you, you will know when the door of spiritual opportunity is being open for you to release Jesus and the Word to a Soul.

 

Believers must spiritually learn to discern from an “aerial view” by and through faith in this world. If Jesus chose to not take you out the world, then He must have another way for us to live a spiritual life in the earth which is governed only by Him.

 

Evaluate self:

  • What is the spirit of the things we indulge in?
  • When tests, trials, and tribulations come, what spirits come with them? Do you take them on?
  • When we take on the ways to conform and transform to the worlds way, what spirit is that thing that you take on?
  • When our ways, attitude, mannerism, character, actions, and even speech are worldly, what is the spirit of that thing?
  • When we don’t or won’t totally surrender to the Word of God and allow it to fashion us, set us apart from the worldliness, what is the spirit of that thing?
  • We take on the world’s ways that appease us or that we are pleased with so people won’t think that you are all the way changed or different. What is the spirit of that thing?
  • We don’t want to give up our way of doing things. What is the spirit of that thing?
  • The worldliness lures, seduces, and perverts believers to the point that it is hard for them to turn totally away from its lust. What is the spirit of that thing when you accept it?
  • Tattoos, pants hanging off men and boys behinds. What is the spirit of that thing?
  • Celebrating in the exact same manner as the world does for any holiday or occasion. What is the spirit of that thing? And if you know the spirits are evil, why do we do them?
  • Compromising the Word of God to befriend our family and friends, regardless of their hate and ill-will toward God and His Word. What spirit is that thing that you entreat every time and say this is my family?
  • The works of the flesh of every human being that is not under subjection to the Word of God. What is the spirit of those works in you?
  • When you keep rebelling to do God’s Will His Way. What is the spirit of that thing working in you?

 

Spiritual discernment is needful to discern the spirit of the things that we choose in word, deed, action, and thought.

 

  • When discerning the spirit of that thing, ask, evaluate, and compare its purpose; its aim; its intent in your new life as a new creature.
  • Discern to see what can it do for you as a new creature? Why you?
  • Discern why is the spirit of that thing trying to stop you from doing the Will of God?
  • Discern who that spirit uses! Most of the time it will be the closes thing to you!
  • Discern what the spirit of this thing is trying to introduce, influence, deceive, and manipulate you into doing.
  • Compare that thing to what God has said; what God has promised? By remembering what God has told you and promised you.

 

1 John 2:15-17

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. When we say we love these people, we should love them in the same manner as God so loved the world?

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.

 

  • Worldliness is against the love of God and for God.
  • Worldliness is the evil, lustful desires of our flesh.
  • The world is in this sin suit that we wear daily!
  • Worldliness is deceitful ambition with an earthly vision full of pride, rebellion, jealousy, and disobedience, etc.
