God was speaking to me about the issue of blood. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul” Leviticus 17:11. We understand then that the life of something is in the Blood.What is life? What is blood? We can come up with many topical definitions of what they are. Here God is saying that they cannot exist without the other.Wow…powerful,you’ll never think of them the same way again. So if you read earlier I spoke about sacrifice, and spirits. If we put everything we know together so far a picture of the spiritual realm will emerge. God is not bloodthirsty as some would have you think. Mans enemy, has him killing each other to appease the blood thirsty demons. From what we read in the Bible,Spirits were not created to eat or be like us.They want blood, to kill the life in that blood.

Every man they take down especially, if that individual is an unbeliever is one more notch for Satan. Satan is a cruel being, demons and devils have sinned, they are perverted , cursed and disgraced. So to is everyone who does their bidding. Before man messed up in the garden of Eden, there was no blood requirement. Sin necessitates blood, to clean up its evil effect. You see there came a point that God himself had to come and shed his divine blood, because the blood of animals was not enough to destroy the taint of the sins of mankind. Do you know that babies blood and mothers blood, don’t cross in the womb? Mary was impregnated by the Holy Spirit, but it was divine blood, that flowed in Jesus veins. Now that is another divine mystery, because I just said that demons are spirits and spirits are unlike men. Jesus was a spirit before he entered the womb. We don’t understand the love God has for mankind. If we did we would never behave in the manner we do with each other. Jesus blood trumps every other sacrifice known to man.The people who are not under the blood of Jesus don’t realise the danger they are in. The shedding of blood is a sacrifice. Anyone who sheds blood is cursed. Only one mans blood can deliver you and his name is Jesus Christ.

God is a holy God,he cannot tolerate sin on any level. The enemy is always trying to discredit his creator, he has never stopped speaking lies and he won’t stop now. Mankind is buying into his lies and harming each other. I said before we are family, Gods children.The enemy has come in and messed up what God wanted to do with us. Man doesn’t know who he is. If he did, he would not be trading his power for demon power. The spirit of the Lord then told me that for every killing a demon responsible. You see many people cut down in the prime of their youth, smitten by all kinds of sickness and disease,a demon is responsible. God has timing for everything “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away” Psalm 90:10. If you did not, get to the Lords timing for you life,you were cut down, don’t matter what people  might say.

Adam and Eve by Peter Paul Rubens

Adam and Eve by Peter Paul Rubens

 Some nights ago I went to church; my bishop was speaking on grace. You know I’ve heard many teachings about the grace of God before but I never really received it. My spirit wasn’t ready back then to process this all important and necessary information. You see in a sense mankind betrayed God. Adam and Eve was given everything they needed, life was good in the garden. They messed up by being disobedient, that was not all though, Genesis 3:8-10 tells us “Where are you?” So he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself. Adam and Eve were terrified because they knew exactly what they had done; their eyes had been opened to their sin. They did not repent but instead they hid and that is what brought the wrath of God down on mankind.

You see God grace is always present, we know when we mess up, we know when we do wrong but we hide it. Sweep it under the rug and go on as if nothing has happened. Even in the present state of affairs on the earth we pretend that nothing is wrong. God is saying my grace is sufficient mankind, come back to me and I will heal and forgive your land. We are saying, ‘no let me try this, let me do that, maybe this solution will work this time.’  While the noose is ever tightening about our necks we dilly dally and play with God. I am fascinated by Adam and Eve lives, and the choices they made. I do believe God was really angry with Adam, why did they not ask for forgiveness? I said in a previous piece that Adam lived to be over 900 years old, nowhere do we have mention of him accomplishing anything other than being a dad. Wow..!  My opinion again but I do believe God felt terribly hurt and saddened by their behavior. You and I are no different, we treat God as if he is the creation and we are in control. We try to reverse the roles, we need him but we pretend that we don’t. When mankind rejects God confusion reigns, how did we arrive at the present level of chaos and confusion we see in every nation and community on the earth today? I digress back to grace.

This walk with God has levels, my goodness. I think sometimes many ministers and teachers of the gospel make the erroneous assumption that everyone is at the same level of maturity. Some important elements of the Christian faith have to be broken down to the bare basics so everyone can understand more fully. In the back of my mind I had acknowledged this grace aspect but it wasn’t immediately real to me. God had to prove it to me, my my…! Since last night the Holy Spirit has been dealing with me on this topic. I finally get what this grace is supposed to mean. I have had more than my share of life troubles which have forced me to go looking for solutions in diverse places (not what you thinking). I have prayed every prayer known to man and still I was not seeing some of my burdens lifted. Much despair, much pain, much sorrow later I finally get it now. Living holy, being prayerful, going to church, worshiping, giving of tithes and offering are all necessary prerequisites to being a Christian. After all that is what God admonishes us to do in our walk with him? There is a but though, it’s by Gods grace and mercy alone some things will change in our lives.

Some of us lack a proper understanding of the grace impartation. Your efforts and your work are not qualifiers to grace; God gives the grace not mankind. Grace essentially means to acquire something that you do not deserve; it is also called by another name unmerited favor. God will pardon and have mercy on us if we cry out to him. Sometimes he will interceded and save us but he will always require us to do something in response ourselves. We can blame Adam and Eve all we want, but before we do we must understand some qualities about God. He knew that Adam and Eve would sin and he allowed it. Have you ever thought why he did that? Many times we don’t get that God is a paradox. He requires all of us to seek him for ourselves. There are some things we will never understand about him, get used to that aspect about him folks he is sovereign not your little boy or girl or woman. God is merciful to us every day. He does not need us you know he can get anything in creation to worship and obey him. I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out” Luke 19:40.

Mercy means that we do not get the punishment that we deserve. God is abundant in compassion, grace mercy and forbearance. God’s greatest act of grace is sending Jesus down to die to save man from his sinful ways. Salvation is by faith, you must believe on Jesus to be saved. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” John 3:36.Salvation is God’s gift to mankind, once received God himself will start the process of renewing you and put you on the pathway to eternal life. It’s all God’s will. Recently, as many of you know, I lost my sister. I prayed for her so much before she passed, and in the end I said God, why? The Bible says “naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD” Job 1”21. We don’t always want to accept God’s will, for reasons known only to him he allows something’s we find abhorrent to happen to us.

I’m not trying to use my faith to justify my sisters passing or any aspect of my life. The things I’m being led to take on I don’t necessarily run to them. I’m driven to do this work because it’s being deposited in my spirit. I always want to be truthful with people, when I don’t comply with God’s wishes I always end up in trouble. Disobedience has brought many troubles my way, so I have decided to do his work whether I like it or not I submit. I live what I teach. What I want the reader to take away is this? If you do all that God asks and you become frustrated because you don’t see the results of your effort.
Remember this scripture And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you” 1 Peter 5:10. God is faithful but we must share in the sufferings of Christ “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.  And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ) if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him” Romans 8:15-22.keep going along the path God has chosen for you. He will deliver you someday or maybe he won’t it’s his will to do so.This is very hard for many to grasp about the God we are being taught about. Life is not easy for no one, but some go through more trials, many times because of spiritual wickedness in high places, but God promises “that no good thing will he with hold from those that walk uprightly” Psalm 84:11.

This is a very serious hour for mankind get to know the God of grace and mercy.

Scriptures on Grace:

Different applications of the grace impartation

2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

 Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 Powerful Grace:

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Acts 4:33 And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.

Acts 6:8 And Stephen, full of grace and power, was doing great wonders and signs among the people.

Acts 11:22-24 The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.

Acts 14:1-3 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

Receiving Grace:

John 1:15-17 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ

Of course there are other scriptures on grace. Be blessed today!

When we lose focus God is always so gracious to bring us back into divine alignment that is if we are obedient. He always sends someone with a rhema word to speak into our spirits. I’m grateful to be back on purpose this morning. This season is a time where many shakings are continuing and evil assignments are being hatched. Children of God who pray, tithe, stay in divine alignment and worship the living God have nothing to fear though. God resources are vast; and there is nothing he can’t do “For with God nothing shall be impossible “Luke 1:37.

 

We are dealing with individuals who are very wicked in their hearts. Jeremiah warns us “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it” Jeremiah 17:9? God alone knows the thoughts of the heart (1 Corinthians 2:11).The Bible is letting us know that the heart of man is desperately wicked; there is no other entity that is so wicked. You can’t tell what a man is thinking or plotting in his heart. When you want to know about a product you go to the manufacturer of that product to get information,whether its in the product pamphlet or by calling the hotline. If God who is mans creator say man’s heart is wicked? Who are you and I to say otherwise.

 

English: The Earth was corrupt before God and ...

English: The Earth was corrupt before God and filled with violence, as in Genesis 6:5: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”; illustration from the 1728 Figures de la Bible; illustrated by Gerard Hoet (1648–1733) and others, and published by P. de Hondt in The Hague; image courtesy Bizzell Bible Collection, University of Oklahoma Libraries (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Let’s look at Genesis 6:6-8 “And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

 

 God himself has said that he regretted making mankind because of their continual wickedness. Some things we know about God’s character, he values his words above everything else. “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” Luke 21:33.So when God says his heart is grieved, he is not saying that lightly. The word repent here is interesting, the basic definition of repent is to turn from sin. We know God cannot sin because he is holy. So God is saying something else about repenting, to understand the Bible we have to take words literally and study them.

 

 Repent:

 

  • to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life
  • to feel regret or contrition
  • to change one’s mind
  • to feel sorrow, regret, for what we have done

 

 Our loving heavenly father has said he regretted making us because of our wicked ways; he has been calling us to change from the beginning of time. Ever thought what would have happened if Adam repented of his sins? There is a but though, “But Noah found grace in the sight of God.” God always leaves a remnant for himself, he will always raise up a Moses, an Abraham, a Joseph, a Daniel, a Noah and a Deborah because he loves us so much even if we don’t deserve his mercy and kindness.

 

 The carnal man is wicked in his heart because he has not been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We can’t walk righteously without Gods help.Our works won’t do it, the bible declares that even our perceived “righteousness is like filthy rags” Isaiah 64:6. Wickedness has become pervasive throughout every strata of society you can’t escape from it. It’s prevalent in every institution known to man, our schools, homes, social networks, churches, government and hospitals. What do all these places have in common? The common element is man; man is the problem, not the institutions or place. So who must change? It’s you and I, man? God does not have a problem; he is trying to help man solve his problems.

 

 There is one adversary since from the beginning of time that is helping mankind to rebel against God. You see this adversary hates with a passion, he tasted glory but now he will never have it again. We are told he was kicked out from heaven, he rebelled first,(1John 3:8) he is trying to get you to disobey God because he wants you to die in your sin and trespasses. I liken Satan to a man who has contracted aids. That man knows he is about to die, he is so wicked that he goes and spreads the virus around knowingly because he wants to destroy other lives. This is sheer madness, and that’s how Satan operates. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly “John 10:10. You can take Jesus at his word; I’m living proof of that. My life has been characterized by a series of crisis that has no basis in reality. Some of the issues I have faced have been of the mysterious kind; one can surmise then that they are of a spiritual nature. 

 

One cannot discern wickedness by looking into someone’s face or eyes. It is much more subtle that that, it is hidden inside the heart. God knows the creatures he made; he alone can look into their hearts and convict them of their sins. What God does when he sends the prophet or his ministers is to remind man of his word and to repent. When a person’s cup of iniquity runs over God will pronounce judgment on such a person.

 

 Do you know how many burial grounds are littered with people who have been destroyed by others? These people think they have gotten away with their evil and secret deeds. Aha, they should think again, there is coming a day when that book is going to be open and every man will be judged, oh yes it is coming .Not even Satan himself can stop it from happening. You see the child of God should never fear Satan, God has his ways of bringing about our deliverance, as long as we obey him. There are divisions of wickedness, I have experienced some of them myself but by the mercy and grace of God I’m here to give God unending praise.

Purpose: The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Destiny:the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.The hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.

It’s possible to know God and still fail in life. Sin and disobedience wreaks havoc on a man’s ultimate purpose. Our destiny requires some decision-making on our part, we must choose some things. Biblical examples include, Sampson, King David, Joseph, Daniel and Adam among many others. When we experience failure, how we move forward is determined to some extent by our choices .Sometimes we have to motivate ourselves, to keep on going. All of the above examples met with failure at some point in their lives, it’s their attitude that determined the final outcome. If you are not sure who you are any prevailing will blow you in any direction. Most of you are young and everything looks good now; generally the young never prepare for their future and I’m not just speaking financially. Some of the relationships you refuse to abort; some of those friendships you are involved in currently will ultimately destroy you. Many hear of relationships and they think family or loved ones. Hey what about business, church, groups, clubs, social media and the list is exhaustive.

Many people never take the time to reason or evaluate situations for themselves. I want to show you an example with the first couple. Before I do though I want to caution some of you, God has warned you before but you have not listened. Judas was appointed to be the betrayer, of Jesus “while I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled” John 17:12 There are some things in the spirit that we will never understand. Everything God made has ears; even the mountains read Matthew 21: 21. Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it dried up, why? The fig tree heard him speak the command. The morning has ears; the universe is in constant communication with its creator. There are really no secrets, when you think about the things of the spirit. To some of you this might sound way off, but how would you know, you’ve never invested time with God. Some of you might say a person doesn’t have an official title don’t worry, its religion speaking. Did most of the people in the Bible have a title? When God chooses it’s obvious. God has his ways of doing things; he uses things that might seem foolish to you.

Someone might look insignificant to you but you don’t know why God has chosen them to do his work. I read a true story recently this associate pastor saw the general pastor stealing funds from his church, and one day he tried the same thing. The Holy Spirit convicted him immediately .The associate Pastor response “was well so and so was doing it”. The Holy Spirit said to him,” that man has already gotten his reward on earth.” “You have a different calling” so the man repented of his sins. Even in the body of Christ there are some individuals who are there for a specific reason, they are the ones God will use like Judas to bring about his ultimate purpose. Why these individuals behave in such a fashion if Jesus came to redeem the whole of mankind? The problem originates in people’s hearts, who knows hearts only the Lord does? Some pastors are not on their way to heaven, it’s the truth and we know it. If you study the good book you’ll find this out for yourself. And Jesus said “then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” Matthew 7:23. We serve the same God oh I take my pursuit of God seriously.

Adam did not know who he was; his major mistake was that he suffered from an identity crisis. He couldn’t teach Eve what he didn’t understand. God had given him everything he ever needed. When you have to scrape and fight and claw your way to get something from God you appreciate it when he finally gives it to you or you are a fool. Like Jacob his life had been characterized by struggle it came to a head when he wrestled with the angel. “He struggled with the angel and finally overcame him; he wept and begged for favor” Hosea 12:3-4.Adam loved his wife to distraction, like many men love and lust can render them unstable and unbalanced. Do you know that Adam failed in his life’s purpose; the real shame is that he lived to be 930 years. “And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died” Genesis 5:5.

The Bible never told us that Adam accomplished anything other than becoming a father after his exit from Eden. Do we get how much 930 years is, contemporary man has never lived to see these ages. God pronounced death on Adam and his wife,” But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” Genesis 2:17.From the day they disobeyed they were the walking dead. Imagine 930 years on the earth and he has accomplished nothing. You guys want to play with God, go ahead.

Death doesn’t always mean actual dying, God has many ways of killing a man yet he lives. Can you imagine how frustrated and unfulfilled Adam must have felt at the end of his life? Recent tragedies of individuals who have attained lofty heights are still on the periphery of our minds. Do you know who else played with God? Original bad boy, he has been sentenced to roam for ever until that day he burns in hell fire. Need I say more, God is a being, he has a presence, he is the creator of heaven and earth and all that dwells within them, and he is the king of all spirits. You can’t outsmart him; I dare you to try, if Lucifer didn’t win, what are your chances? Peace and blessings!

Intellect:

The power of knowing as distinguished from the power to feel and to will: the capacity for knowledge. The capacity for rational or intelligent thought especially when highly developed.

 

Where the things of God are concerned most of us rely on intellect alone. God is bigger than the sum of our brains, if he designed it, he must be of higher intelligence than his creation. First and foremost God is a spirit. A major characteristic of spirit beings is that they operate largely unseen. It stands to reason then if we can’t see them, there are ways they communicate with us. Humans are types of beings, so are animals and angels, all created by the same God (see the account in the book of Genesis). God speaks primarily to mans hearts, there are many reasons why we don’t hear him. In the gospel of Mark 4:14:20 the Parable of the sower explains to us why it is that many do not hear the inner voice of God.

 “The sower (God) sows the word. These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, they immediately receive it with joy. But they have no root, and endure only for a while; then, when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are those sown among the thorns, these are the ones who hear the word but the cares of the world, and the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word and it yields nothing. And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred-fold.”

God can use anything to speak to a person who wants to hear him, he is almighty God he commands the winds, the seas and all his creation. In the Bible he has used talking animals, a flaming bush, angels, visions, and a “still small voice” to speak to his people. The heart is the center of the intellect, it consists of one’s intellect, emotion and volition (the act of will).Many of us search for God with our brain power alone. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” Isaiah 55:9 says the Lord.

Mans wisdom rejects God, to get God we have to allow our other senses be open to receive him. God laughs at our wisdom, the Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” God allows those that don’t believe to carry on in their unbelief. He allows their behavior to catch up with them; sometimes they perish other times he intervenes. God wants our hearts and minds to be in fellowship with him, our brain (the mind) receives the word and it transforms our hearts to receive. Intellect is inherently fleshy or of the flesh, God has to speak and change our hearts by his process. When we accept Jesus the old man dies, we become new creatures and it’s this new man that accepts God transforming power in his life. This man is our spirit man; fleshy man will never get God. I believe Eve warred with her spirit. She had been preoccupied in her senses with the fruit she should not have been longing at. If her flesh had been in subjection to her spirit she would not have blundered. Apostle Paul said it best Romans 7:15-19 “ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”

The flesh wars with spirit when the spirit man is not in control, of the individual. The issue Paul is addressing is the fight with sin and wrongdoing; we are not able to overcome on our own but with God’s grace we can that is why we need him. What the fall or sin did was to cut us off or severe us from the power source. Satan interrupted what God was doing with mankind through Adam and Eve so he had to send Jesus to finish his work; Jesus is part of the Godhead (Three bare witness in heaven).God is a trinity, and he made man a triune being also because he was created in the image of God. God really loves mankind wow…! “God said, Let us make man in Our image” Genesis 1:26. The Holy Trinity is depicted in the Apostle Paul’s benediction “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” 2 Corinthians 13:14.Further reference of the Trinity spoken by Jesus “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” Matthew 28:19. “I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells.

Jesus came to reconcile man to his SUPERNATURAL capacity and giftings. He taught and showed by example the power of the supernatural, in the multiplication of the bread and fishes and turning water into wine. Jesus as part of the Godhead is the bread of life. If you ask him, he won’t refuse you. God hides himself for many reasons, mankind can’t handle the full manifestation of the spirit of God, it is too much. Put away your books meet God in his preordained meeting place, location the church and let him talk to your heart then we can compare notes. Have you seen tumors disappear, diseases healed, lives spared in accidents tell me your stories of God miraculous working power.
I’ve seen the operation of the spirit in churches and people are scared, well the men of old really walked with God they feared and revered him. The church wants revival, God has to manifest in such a powerful way now because of the things we have done and the evil strongholds that need breaking. What I really wanted to get at today is that many individuals who say there is no God has only studied one aspect of mans tripartite nature. The Bible is the foremost authority on the spiritual nature of man. Prove that spirits don’t exist and that the king of spirits is not God, that there are some mysteries we can’t comprehend and I’ll have to change my mind too but until that time I’ve proven God is a miracle working God, He spared my life multiple times and I count no better service than his work. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12.

 

 

I decree and declare a breaking and shattering now in the name of Jesus!

 Let the supernatural work of God take precedence now over the will of men.

A simple definition of spiritually is the ability of a human beings to connect with things of the spirit.Spirituality can be a complex  range of phenomena. I’m of the belief that everything originates from somewhere.My work  faith, and teachings are based on Biblical principles and concepts.With this in mind,the Bible instructs that we are spirit beings, in essence having a spirit “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.I read somewhere recently that God is the father or king of all spirits.Our spirituality should be representative of the one that created us.Be blessed abundantly this day…

“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” Romans 12:2.

Most of life’s battles are waged through the mind, if we overcome its in the mind through God we do this. Man cannot save himself from his issues as much as he tries to. He has to go outside of himself, to a higher source if he must succeed and live a balance life. God wants to heal the whole man but to do that he must change his fallen mindset. “The Mind is the seat of all spiritual and carnal conflict” The Battle for the Mind By Noel Jones with Dr. Georgina Land .The mind is the greatest gift God has ever given to mankind. Whatever controls your mind owns you. You say well I function; I’m doing what society says I ought to do. I’m providing for my family, I have some accomplishments; I have money, shelter, food and clothing. Yes all that’s wonderful but you’re still in bondage through your mind.

When we come to God he has to renew our mind. It’s a process that takes time that’s why we mature and grow into the things of God. Man has a carnal nature, because of sin. All carnality is in opposition to God.”For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spirituality minded is life and peace” Romans 8:6.Opposing forces of light and darkness battle for our minds every day. “Jesus was manifested that he might destroy the works of darkness” 1John 3:8, he’s our only hope. “When the Christian  believer  begins to battle between the desires of the flesh and the will of the Spirit it must be clear that satanic forces are trying to control your thinking through your flesh, which is connected to your five senses” The Battle for the Mind. When we are yielded to the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit fights to subdue our flesh. If you let him, you will eventually be victorious as you begin overcoming your issues.

‘The word ‘mind’ in Hebrew is nephesh, it connotes many things most notably life, creature, person and soul’ The Battle for the Mind. The things of the Spirit are accessed through our minds. We are made in God’s image and likeness” Genesis 1:27. God is a spirit, we are told God has a mind, he speaks. Spirits don’t have bodies, not in the physical sense. So by reasoning our mind is what connects us to God. Who has seen God or touched him? Not one of us. We know of God through faith. Faith happens in the mind. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans” 10:17.All human beings have God (divinity) inbuilt in their minds. It’s when the mind is liberated by the Spirit of the living God that the bondages and shackles fall away exposing the limiting and negative beliefs we have carried around for generations.
