◼️Spiritually as a people, we are blind naked and miserable and we do not know it. If you think about it, these words, think about what we do as a people, who we are, the sleeping church, the backslidden, the ones not yet awake (in ALL the world); they ARE blind, naked, AND miserable and they do not know it. Their lives are filled with everything they’ve ever wished for, or they chase dream after dream, etc… Yet they are naked (spiritually) they are blind (scales over their spiritual eyes so they cannot see the truth) and they are miserable (with ALL they have they are addicted to some form of bondage/sin and know not happiness in the peace of God). Does this sound like something you feel, whoever you are? Does this hit your heart? Are you lost?
◼️Do you feel like you’re meant for SO MUCH MORE or to be GREATER but cannot find your way? Do you have everything yet at the same time have nothing? Are you rich in the world yet poor in the spirit? Do you have a feeling deep within that yearns and aches for something that feels like a part of you that is missing? Like a disconnection to a higher calling/power? If you fit ANY of these categories I have your answer. Full surrender unto The Lord Jesus Christ and cry out to your Father in Heaven! If you are hungry yet are rich, you need to feed your spirit too.
◼️We as humans have three main parts that connect into one making us who we are: the body (the flesh), the soul (the mind), and the spirit (the heart, AND our divine self). We feed our mouths with food to eat, so we can sustain life. We feed our soul far more than we should for this is where sin originates (within us-telling the body it wants something). We fail however, (most of us) to feed our spirit which is by reading the Word of God. By reading His Words, we ingest them as we would with food to the mouth. This fills us up, the more we read His Word, the fuller in spirit we become.
◼️Are you starving your spirit but feeding your flesh and your soul? HERE LIES OUR PROBLEM. The Bible is NOT just a book. It IS the Living Breathing Word of God. IT LIVES! IT BREATHES! Ingest The Word into your spirit and you will be filled with Him and all of His glory! Feed your spirit…test this out and you will find completion! As you keep feeding your spirit, the hungrier it becomes for the truth because we are connected to God on a spiritual level. Before you know it, your ingesting The Word EVERY DAY and you start to begin to feed the soul not so much, therefore not sinning or giving into sin or desiring sin (key words: not so much). The flesh desires (sin) will remain forever as we were born with the ‘sin nature’, and will be a part of us until we die, or until Christ returns (Which ever comes first). So don’t feel guilty to the point where you just want to give up because you feel like you have sinned in such abundance that God will reject you!!
◼️WE ARE SINNERS BY NATURE. God forgives, (remember all we need to do is ask Jesus for forgiveness and our slate is wiped clean) this is why Jesus Christ died for all of us! To take on the sins of ALL mankind so that we have a chance and access to eternal salvation through Christ and eternal life with God in paradise. When I say paradise, I MEAN PARADISE!!! But the more you feed your spirit, you begin to put your soul ‘on a diet’ and soon you WILL FIND that you are so much happier and so blessed in life…and the road to God is a beautiful and peaceful walk!! We are to put on the new man with the new nature, standing in the righteousness of Christ Jesus The LORD. When we stand in righteousness, we will no longer desire to fulfill the lusts of the flesh, and we walk in the spirit.
THIS IS WAR
YOU NEED TO FIGHT
🔥”This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”🔥
