Spirit or flesh

God Is very straight forward about the definition  of walking in theSpirit.

He makes it very clear as to what it means to walk in the flesh.

This scripture described very clearly why people are not listening.

2 Corinthians 4:3-12

New Living Translation (NLT)

If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

You see, we don’t go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure.[a] This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

 

 

Before you start I want you to please understand this. I am not asking you to believe one word I say.

Get in The Word and find out what The Author has to say, while doing this

the real Bible teacher The Holy Spirit Of God  will introduce Him Self.

Life Through

There is a distinct difference between walking in the Spirit as to walking in the flesh.

Please listen to the Word and let  of God teach you what these differences are.

Life Through

Audio Bible For Chapter 8 Click Here

Therefore, there is now no condemnation(A) for those who are in Christ Jesus,(B) because through Christ Jesus(C) the law of  who gives life(D) has set you[a] free(E) from the law of sin(F) and death. For what the law was powerless(G) to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[b](H) God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh(I) to be a sin offering.[c](J) And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement(K) of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to .(L)

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires;(M) but those who live in accordance with  have their minds set on what  desires.(N) The mind governed by the flesh is death,(O) but the mind governed by  is life(P) and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God;(Q) it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh(R) cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh(S) but are in the realm of , if indeed  of God lives in you.(T) And if anyone does not have  of Christ,(U) they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you,(V) then even though your body is subject to death because of sin,  gives life[d] because of righteousness. 11 And if  of him who raised Jesus from the dead(W) is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies(X) because of[e] his Spirit who lives in you.

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it.(Y) 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die;(Z) but if by  you put to death the misdeeds of the body,(AA) you will live.(AB)

14 For those who are led by  of God(AC) are the children of God.(AD) 15 (AE) you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;(AF) rather,  you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[f] And by him we cry, “Abba,[g] Father.”(AG) 16  himself testifies with our spirit(AH) that we are God’s children.(AI) 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs(AJ)—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings(AK) in order that we may also share in his glory.(AL)

Present Suffering and Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.(AM) 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God(AN) to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it,(AO) in hope 21 that[h] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay(AP) and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.(AQ)

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning(AR) as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of ,(AS) groan(AT) inwardly as we wait eagerly(AU) for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.(AV) 24 For in this hope we were saved.(AW) But hope that is seen is no hope at all.(AX) Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.(AY)

26 In the same way,  helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but (AZ) himself intercedes for us(BA) through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts(BB) knows the mind of , because  intercedes(BC) for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good(BD) of those who love him, who[i] have been called(BE) according to his purpose.(BF) 29 For those God foreknew(BG) he also predestined(BH) to be conformed to the image of his Son,(BI) that he might be the firstborn(BJ) among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined,(BK) he also called;(BL) those he called, he also justified;(BM) those he justified, he also glorified.(BN)

More Than Conquerors

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things?(BO) If God is for us,(BP) who can be against us?(BQ) 32 He who did not spare his own Son,(BR) but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge(BS) against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns?(BT) No one. Christ Jesus who died(BU)—more than that, who was raised to life(BV)—is at the right hand of God(BW) and is also interceding for us.(BX) 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?(BY) Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?(BZ) 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j](CA)

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors(CB) through him who loved us.(CC) 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future,(CD) nor any powers,(CE) 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God(CF) that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.(CG)

 

In the following two scripture the flesh in its ability to deceive can conjure up loop holes of escape to allow the self righteous individual to easily escape from completely separating himself from this world and the things that it tell you are so important for you to have and achieve.

 

 

The next scripture is as black and white as you will get it.  The power of the flesh within you will rage in such a rebellion against,  such a flesh depriving statement, that every complaint and excuse that you can imagine will obliviate your hope of a realization of your current state of being, if you have not been saturated before hand with God's Word Jesus.

 

 

1 John 2:15-16

New Living Translation (NLT)

Do Not Love This World

15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

--

If you do not understand exactly what it means to walk in the flesh, because the power of the nature of the flesh and its controlling ability to demand and get what it wants, at best you will be lukewarm.

 

I will tell you this, lukewarm is not an option,

Not An Option That You Are Going To Want To Live With The Results.

 

New Living Translation (NLT)

The Message to the Church in Laodicea

14 “Write this letter to the angel of the church in Laodicea. This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginning[a] of God’s new creation:

15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. 19 I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.

22 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

 

Getting Spit out of the mouth of God, does not seem to rewarding.

The Truth Is Here In These Following Scriptures, If You Are Interested.

 

--

 

John 8:32

King James Version (KJV)

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Therefore it stands to reason if you do not know the truth, you can not be free.

 

Many Christians do not know the truth and therefore they are not free.

 

What do you need to be free from,  you. 

 

You need to be free from you.

 

You are a part of this world and are conformed to this world until,

 

Galatians 2:20

New Living Translation (NLT)

20 My old self has been crucified with Christ.[a] It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

The greatest failure to you as a Christian, is to have this explained in depths to you.

Matthew 16:24-26

English Standard Version (ESV)

Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

 

The above scripture is very clear and easy to understand it's meaning.  To live it is a completely different store.

God wants our focus on ual world and the development of the Kingdom Of God.

satan has learned very well how to keep Christians focused on the this world and the things that men create in this world.

Bible simple description of this battle is

walking in  or walking in the flesh.

Every leader that, I have ever known, in the Body of Christ has tried to make it ok to walk in both realms.

God Calls This Being Luke Warm.

The out come of Luke Warm is not very desirable.

 

The flesh is much more powerful in controlling our daily lives than most can even imagine.

Your flesh is an integrate part of your total being. 

 

The sensory system built into the flesh,

with its need to receive input is,

 well it is really almost indescribable.

Once you really start attempting to deny and die

to self,  you will learn very quickly the true power of the flesh.

 

The average pastor in the US has never taught a sermon on the death of self.

Most members are not interested in hearing anything about the death of me, me being that individual.

Most come to Jesus because they realize they have made a mess of their life,

or they are just not having the success they desire. They are brought to Jesus for the blessings

they are told He offers.

 

There are very many blessings offered in the New Testament, But God's definition

of being blessed and the world's definition of being blessed is much different.

 

Because the flesh is so powerful

there are many,  many suffering

 the incomprehensible agony of an eternal hell.

Many will enter that hell this very day.

 

Because of the power of the flesh many many Christians will do nothing this day to rescue the perishing,

even though as a soldier in God's army, that is the only reason that you are still on this earth.

 

These are some heavy duty statements.

 

You need to review the scriptures below, not to find your truth,

But To Find God's Truth.

 

Galatians 5:16-18

New King James Version (NKJV)

Walking in

16 I say then: Walk in , and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against , and  against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by , you are not under the law.

 

A second translation.

 

Galatians 5:16-18

New Living Translation (NLT)

Living by ’s Power

16 So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. 17 The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what  wants. And  gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. 18 But when you are directed by , you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.

 

Being lead by  of God through your spirit is a challenge that very few ever enter into.

Why, this is the terrible part.  Those that never enter into being lead by , never make the choice because they are never told about the choices that they have to make to be able to enter in.  If they are taught anything, it is mostly the opposite of what they should really be doing as a soldier in the army of God.

 

What is the lust of the flesh, what is the craving of the sinful nature?

The following scriptures make clear the path to walking in ,  I can almost guarantee you, that you have never heard a compelling teaching on the following scriptures. Why, the power of the flesh and the rulers of the darkness have kept it from you. They came as angles of light and deceived the many.

The next scripture is as black and white as you will get it.  The power of the flesh within you will rage in such a rebellion against,  such a flesh depriving statement, that every complaint and excuse that you can imagine will obliviate your hope of a realization of your current state of being, if you have not been saturated before hand with God's Word Jesus.

 

 

1 John 2:15-16

New Living Translation (NLT)

Do Not Love This World

15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

In the following two scripture the flesh in its ability to deceive can conjure up loop holes of escape to allow the self righteous individual to easily escape complete for this world and the things that it tell you are so important for you to have and achieve.

 

James 4

New Living Translation (NLT)

Drawing Close to God

1 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.

You adulterers![a] Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. What do you think the Scriptures mean when they say that  God has placed within us is filled with envy?[b] But he gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say,

“God opposes the proud
    but favors the humble.”[c]

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.

"What do you think the Scriptures mean when they say that  God has placed within us is filled with envy?"
This is the struggle that we face as Christians. Many believers in the US are members of the Church in Laodicea, not so much out of direct choice, but out of follow the of the Bible teaching in the US.  satan's great victory of destroying ually of this once great Christian Country. What is God envious of, jealous of.   God is very jealous of everything that we do that does not look just like we are Jesus.

God is a God of Perfect, Exact, Meaning Words.  He is so exact about what He says to a point beyond your wildest imagination.  He is jealous of every second of your time, every thoughts that you have, everything that you listen to, everything that your eyes focus on, every smell that you have, every touch that you make,  every penny that you spend, when any of those actions do not represent this statement that He Made.  

My old self has been crucified with Christ.[a] It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.

When God looks at you, He does not want to see you,

He wants to see Jesus.

If you have never been to Christian boot camp, and most Christians in the US have never been to Christian Boot Camp, this is impossible to understand.

When I joined the Navy,  I was taken from Birmingham Al to Orlando Fl for boot camp.  As soon as I got off the bus I knew that I was not in Kansas any more. (wizard of oz). When I went in the recruiters office to sign up for the Navy they were so nice.  When I went to Montgomery Al to be tested, so they could decide what "they want to do with me", I was treated with great respect. How things changed in Orlando.

There was a lot of yelling going,  we were all being treated as we were deaf and retarded. They striped me naked, shaved my head and gave me a few suits of clothes that all looked just alike.  I could never say anything that was right, do anything right, or do it fast enough to make anyone happy. it was a long three months.  I was being changed from who I was, to what they wanted me to be. I was then sent to New London Ct. to sub school and spent the next six months  studying subs and how to fix them in seconds if it broke. Then once I was aboard a sub I spent the next nine months studying that sub so at which time I become sub qualified and got every sub sailors dream, the Dolphins, which  I wore to show I was sub qualified.

Count the months of training that I went through to get to a state of a trained sub sailor in the Navy. 3+6+9 =18 Months

You may find this hard to believe but this is the total commitment God wants you to make to serve in this army.

When we become Christians we are joining the arm of God.  The earth is no longer my home.  It should be like me leaving Birmingham and going to Orlando, but it is not.  We are patted on the back, hugged,  told to start reading the Bible, attend church maybe six hours a week,  While in church we are taught to stop sinning, pay our tides, give offering and then we can pray for all the earthly blessing that we can dream of. All the church leaders that were telling me this ,that I can remembered for the last twenty years in the churches that I attend drove up in very expensive cars.  Lived in very large and nice homes. Many of these leaders had many of this worlds toys which I saw when I was invited to their homes.

I started thinking that there is something very wrong with this set up when at the last church that I worked full time in, I was teaching school five days a week, I was Sunday school superintendent and children's church pastor. The church pastor was telling me how great a job I was doing and I was paid $148 a week after taxes.  This was Sarasota Fl and this pastors house was on the beach.   This is exactly the opposite of how Jesus treated his disciples. satan is so good in influencing the flesh. 

A new Christian or any Christian that has never separated himself from this world as completely as possible for at least six months is not ready for the battle field of this world. To face satan and this world you have to be trained with The Word by The Holy Spirit.  No one but yourself, the New Testament and the Holy Spirit as your teacher.

You need to have the New Testament playing out loud so you can hear it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in your home. Remove everything that can be removed from your life,  TV, Radio, News, Weather, whatever. Out side of your home the Bible should play on your phone, in your car, if you can play the Bible at work, do so.

You say that is impossible.  Can you hear any soldier in any branch of the service telling those ranked above that soldier, this is to much, I am not doing it.

If you are a Christian that has never attending boot camp, you have a ring in your noise and are freely lead around by satan and his followers as satan wills.

The body of Christ in the US was not sent to boot camp and then additional special training as I was and any military person was in the US. So there is no way they could be good soldiers in the army of God . We in the church were taught to think that we could be good and be pleasure seekers and stuff seekers. 

Look at the US today and you will see, what we were taught to be, has allow this country to become a satanic driven country.
The Bible has been removed from public view, we have murdered 55 million babies, homosexual behavior is a part or our everyday life and our government is no long by the people and for the people.

I am not sure our country can be saved, but you still can be. But you must under stand the following  two statement.

You can not be a good soldier in any army including the army of  God with out going to boot camp.
 I have never attended a church that is going to send you through boot camp.

You are going to have to do it for your self.

Here I would strongly suggest you take the challenge that God gave me.

Get out of this world and into The Word for at least six months. You can find the challenge video below.

 

Colossians 3:1-16

New King James Version (NKJV)

Not Carnality but Christ

3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.

But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

The Character of the New Man in Christ is Christ. To be able to live to this extent you have to be so saturated with the Word of God that what spills out is the image of Christ Jesus as shown in the four gospels.  To do this you have to have an exclusive diet of the flesh and blood of Jesus as explain in the Gospel of John.

Same scripture different translation.

 

Colossians 3:1-16

New Living Translation (NLT)

Living the New Life

3 Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your[a] life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.

So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming.[b] You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. 10 Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. 11 In this new life, it doesn’t Matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile,[c] circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized,[d] slave, or free. Christ is all that Matters, and he lives in all of us. 12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

 

In boot camp you will learn what God's definition Of All Real Is.

 

 

 

Mark 12:29-31

New Living Translation (NLT)

29 Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.[a] 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] No other commandment is greater than these.”

 

The Holy Spirit will teach you how to be a living sacrifice to God and what it means to complete transform you mind in The Word

 

Romans 12:1-2

New Living Translation (NLT)

A Living Sacrifice to God

12 And so, dear brothers and sisters,[a] I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.[b] Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Romans 8:7

New King James Version (NKJV)

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

 

Romans 8:7

New Living Translation (NLT)

For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.

 

The human  man and woman is a five part being.  We are spirit, soul, mind, strength and body. The Bible has clear instructions as to how we are to interact with each part with God.

 

One of the biggest failures of the leaders and teachers in the Body Of Christ, is to know and teach what is necessary

 to do with each part of your being, to be able to walk in  and not in the flesh.

 

In this following verse we get a glance at the receptive power of the flesh as it was an entwined  part of the complete being.  God is Spirit and man is flesh, yet Adam and Eve heard the movement of God as He was walking in the garden.

 

Genesis 3

New Living Translation (NLT)

The Man and Woman Sin

3 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”

“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”

“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.

When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man[a] and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”

10 He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.”

11 “Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”

12 The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”

13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”

“The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”

 

 

In your current location there are spiritual being in your presents. Even though the flesh has apparently lost some of its conscience perceptive abilities, the Word makes it very clear that there is still powerful interaction between your total being and the unseen spirit world.

 

Ephesians 6:10-20

New Living Translation (NLT)

The Whole Armor of God

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we[a] are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[b] 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.[c] 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of , which is the word of God.

18 Pray in  at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.[d]

19 And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.[e] 20 I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God’s ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.

 

 

As a whole the body of Christ has no boot camp and new soldiers are not trained in the art of Walking In .

 

To our disgrace we are actual trained as to how to continue walking in the flesh.

 

Galatians 5:16-26

New King James Version (NKJV)

Walking in

16 I say then: Walk in , and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against , and  against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by , you are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[a] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders,[b] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of  is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in , let us also walk in . 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

 

 

In closing I must repeat what I said in the teaching Focus Of Life.

 

If you really want to know the truth about the life style as a New Testament "Believer In God", there is only one correct way to find out the truth.  The Curriculum is the, New Testament and the teach is, The Holy Spirit Of God. Take the Challenge Below with an open heart and mind to God. I guarantee you, when you come out the other side, you will know the truth.

If You Want To Know The Truth, God Through The Holy Spirit of God, Will Teach You The Truth.

This would be a good place to introduce you to, The Challenge, if you have not already reviewed it and accepted it.

 

 

Jesus makes it very clear, if you use any of your Time, any Action that you take, or one single Penny that is not directed towards enabling you to work towards the building of The Kingdom Of God, it is considered an idol to Him.

In The Mind Of Christ, There Is No Exceptions At All.

 

So you would say, how is possible to live like this.

 

Read the warning below, compare your time on earth to your time in eternity,

  and you might try to start figuring it out.

Many Warnings,

to the results of avoiding  or not taking scripture at face value,

I am only sharing a few.

Matthew 7:21-23

New King James Version (NKJV)

I Never Knew You

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

When man reads the above verse he applies his own definition to what it means to "practice lawlessness", so he can feel ok about himself.

He does not ask God what He means by the statement.

Matthew 24:36-44

New King James Version (NKJV)

No One Knows the Day or Hour

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[a] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour[b] your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Revelation 3:15-22

New King James Version (NKJV)

15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what  says to the churches.”’”

If you would like to be ready I would strongly suggest that you Take The Challenge
