The Soul Introduction

 

Please  Please  Please

Do Not Lose Your Soul

 

The Soul Part 1

 

 

 

 

The Soul

From the Thompson Chain Concordance

G5590. psuche, psoo-khay'; from G5594; breath, i.e. (by impl.) spirit, abstr. or concr. (the animal sentient principle only; thus distinguished on the one hand from G4151, which is the rational and immortal soul; and on the other from G2222, which is mere vitality, even of plants: these terms thus exactly correspond respectively to the Heb. H5315, H7307 and H2416):--heart (+ -ily), life, mind, soul, + us, + you.

 

In most teachings on the soul authors

 go into the depth

 of explaining how the soul is made up of

the will, mind and emotions.

Within their study they will get into complex explanations

 of the inter workings of each of the souls parts.

 

As with the other three parts of our selves

 mentioned in

Mark 12:30,

 I want to give you scriptures that will help

you understand how to love

the Lord with all your soul

as a individual and separate part all

other part of our total being.

The soul, is more complex to understand

than the other three parts mention.

So I will, in my opinion, break it down to what

I believe for my life personally,

 is the most important way,

or thing that I do to love the

Lord my God with all my Soul.

 

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one,

 just as God wants us to

be one with Him by taking our place

as part of the body of Christ.

Jesus said He did nothing without the Father.

 We are to do all

we do, to the most

insignificant decision,

based on God’s will.

 Not our own will.

 

The creative power

of the soul originally was

so the power of God would flow out through

His creation and

the soul of each individual

would be a out flow

of God’s own being,

just as the life of Jesus was.

 

Although the

knowledge and ability is all from God,

 everything created by

man on this earth is a out flow

 of each man's own being.

 The ability to create is from God.

 But the will to create the things that

 have been created are mostly

that of man,

 for mans own purposes.

 

For Christians,

 there is nothing here on this earth for us,

 the earth is only a proving ground

for us to show God that

we will live and act as Jesus did.

 

Lord not my will,

but your will be done.

 

I wonder what the focus of our lives would be

 if we were living out God’s focus on this earth.

 

What is God’s focus.

 We must study every word and every action that

Jesus took on this earth

and then say to God,

 I deny my self, my will,

my wants and my desires and

 Lord I choose to take up my cross

and follow Jesus,

it is no longer I who live

but Jesus who lives in me.

 

Before we start this study of the soul,

I want us to read two separate

 groups of scriptures that I personally believe;

  1. Represents the power that is within the soul.
  2. That will give us some very important insight as to the life of the soul.

(

Gen 11:3 NASB) 

(3) And they said to one another,

"Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly."

 And they used brick for stone,

and they used tar for mortar.

(4) And they said,

 "Come, let us build for ourselves a city,

and a tower whose top will reach into heaven,

and let us make for ourselves a name;

lest we be scattered abroad

over the face of the whole earth."

(5) And the LORD came down to see

the city and the tower

 which the sons of men had built.

(6) And the LORD said,

 "Behold, they are one people,

 and they all have the same language.

And this is what they began to do,

and now nothing which

they purpose to do

will be impossible for them.

 (7) "Come, let Us go down and

there confuse their language, 

 that they may not understand

one another's speech."

 

This translation says

 "And this is what they began to do,

and now nothing which they purpose to do

will be impossible for them."

 

I believe that God was very serious with this statement.

 God created man in His Own Image and Likeness.

Within man is the God like power to create.

Through mans own ignorance

 as he walks in the flesh,

God has limited his ability

 to tape in to this power.

Because of man's evil hearts,

God has only allowed man

to use this power to serve

God’s final purposes on this earth,

up till Jesus came.

 

 When Jesus came to the earth,

He came to give man the right

to reestablish there soul and again walk in

this God given power.

 

(Mark 11:22 NKJV)

(22) So Jesus answered and said to them,

"Have faith in God.

(23) "For assuredly, I say to you,

 whoever says to this mountain,

'Be removed and be cast into the sea,'

and does not doubt in his heart,

 but believes that those things he says will be done,

 he will have whatever he says.

 (24) "Therefore I say to you,

whatever things you ask when you pray,

believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

 

This power is available on the earth

today within man.

God through his eternal wisdom,

 has limited mans use of this power.

This power is available in unlimited

 proportion to the members of the

 body of Christ now,

if and only if it is no longer I who live,

but Christ who live within me.

So the things that I will to do

will be that of the father.

 

(John 15:7 – 10 NKJV)

(7) "If you abide in Me,

 and My words abide in you,

 you will ask what you desire,

 and it shall be done for you.

 (8) "By this My Father is glorified,

that you bear much fruit;

so you will be My disciples.

 (9) "As the Father loved Me,

I also have loved you;

abide in My love.

(10) "If you keep My commandments,

you will abide in My love,

just as I have kept My Father's commandments

 and abide in His love.

 

(James 4:3 NKJV)

(3) You ask and do not receive,

 because you ask amiss,

that you may spend it on your pleasures.

 

I believe this power is housed in the soul.

Simple put,

this creative power

which comes from

the likeness of God,

gives an individual the ability

to will to change reality,

which would include ones on destiny.

 

 That is what happen to Adam

 in the the garden of Eden.

He willfully chose to change his own destiny.

 

This is what God was referring

 to when He said

"And this is what they began to do,

and now nothing

which they purpose to do

will be impossible for them."

 

I believe that this power is

apart of the soul,

or maybe is the soul.

 

 If so, within my soul

is the power to create.

 I also believe within the soul

 is the power to willfully change

my eternal existence.

But God being God has chosen to give

man only two option,

heaven or hell.

 

It is  already set

 into motion by the Word

Who is Jesus,

and there is nothing any created being

can now do to stop the final out come

of only having two choices.

 

It could have been stopped.

That is what was meant by this scripture.

 

(1 Cor 2:6 NKJV)

(6) However, we speak wisdom

among those who are Mature,

yet not the wisdom of this age,

 nor of the rulers of this age,

who are coming to nothing.

(7) But we speak the wisdom of God

in a mystery,

 the hidden wisdom which God

ordained before the ages for our glory,

 (8) which none of the rulers of this age knew;

for had they known,

they would not have crucified

 the Lord of glory.

(9) But as it is written:

"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

nor have entered into the heart of man

 the things which

God has prepared

 for those who love Him."

 (10) But God has revealed them to us

 through His Spirit.

 For the Spirit searches all things,

 yes, the deep things of God.

 (11) For what man knows the things

 of a man except the

 spirit of the man which is in him?

Even so no one knows the

things of God except the Spirit of God.

 

But now for us that will love Him

and surrender our all to Him,

 deny our selves on this earth,

take up our cross and follow Him,

"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

Nor have entered into the heart of man

The things which God has prepared

 for those who love Him."

 

The Study Of The Power Of The Soul

Will Be Continued Below.

 

We are now going to look at

the characteristics of the Soul.

 

The first thing we need to understand

 about the soul is that

 

It can be destroyed in hell

(Matthew 10:28 NKJV)

 

We can lose our souls or

we can exchange our souls

for some worldly objects or experiences.

(Matthew 16:26 NKJV)

 

Our souls can be required of us

at the death of the body.

(Luke 12:19 –20 NKJV)

 

Our souls can be destroyed

 from amount the people.

(Acts 3:23 KJV)

 

If you turn a sinner from

the error of his way

 you will save a soul from death.

At the death of the body of a person

 that is not born again,

 there is the death of the soul.

(James 5:20 NKJV)

 

Read the following scriptures

and pay close attention to

(Luke 12:19 –20 NKJV)

and at what point the soul

 would be required of an individual.

 

From all these scriptures,

it seem clear to me that

 at the death of the body,

the soul will be destroyed,

if the spirit of an individual

has not been born again.

 

(Matthew 10:28 NKJV)

"And do not fear those

 who kill the body

but cannot kill the soul.

But rather fear Him who is able

 to destroy both soul and body in hell.

 

(Matthew 16:26 NKJV)

"For what profit is it to a man

 if he gains the whole world,

and loses his own soul?

 Or what will a man give

in exchange for his soul?

 

(Luke 12:19 –20 NKJV)

(19 'And I will say to my soul,

"Soul, you have many goods laid

 up for many years;

take your ease;

eat, drink, and be merry."'

(20) "But God said to him, 'Fool!

This night your soul

will be required of you;

 then whose will those things

 be which you have provided?'

 

(Acts 3:23 KJV)

And it shall come to pass,

that every soul,

which will not hear that prophet,

 shall be destroyed

 from among the people.

 

 

The second think that we should understand

 is at the new birth,

 

Our souls are saved.

 (Heb 10:39 NKJV)

 

By the implanting of the word

 in to your heart or spirit,

you will be able to save your souls.

(James 1:21 NKJV)

 

When you turn a sinner from

the error of his way,

you will save a soul from death.

 (James 5:20 NKJV)

 

 

Before We Read Our

Scriptures Here Is

A Life Changing

Short Insert;

(((((((Want some

heavenly treasure,

turn a few sinner from the error of their ways.

 

I promise it will be worth more to you than anything or all the things

that you will or ever could possess  on this earth, a million million times over.

 

Want to really bless your family with a wonderful eternal experience,

get to the point with your family that you go shopping

for a few souls every week. Go on vacation for the purpose of

collecting a few dozen or maybe even a few hundred souls for God.

 

The eternal pleasure your family will receive will make 6 flags of D land or D world

look like, well how could I even compare those to the value of

EVEN ONE SOUL.)))))))

 

Now back to our scriptures

 

(Heb 10:39 NKJV)

But we are not of those who

draw back to perdition,

but of those who believe

to the saving of the soul.

 

(James 1:21 NKJV)

Therefore lay aside all

filthiness and overflow of wickedness,

 and receive with meekness

the implanted word,

which is able to save your souls.

 

(James 5:20 NKJV)

let him know that he who turns

a sinner from the error

 of his way will save a soul from death

 and cover a multitude of sins.

 

(1 Pet 1:9 NKJV)

 receiving the end of your faith;

 the salvation of your souls.

 

 

The third thing we need to understand

 about the soul is that it is a power force

that surrounds our individual wills.

 

Now I want to look at

the scriptures  that lead

me to believe that the will

which includes the

 power to create or change

 ones destiny is a part

 of the soul or is the soul.

 

Just as It Was With Adam,

it was possible for Jesus to fail.

To fail, I mean to disobey

 the will of the Father.

 

 If Jesus would have failed,

the whole plan of redemption

would have be spoiled.

 

 In the following scriptures,

Jesus said that His soul

 was exceedingly sorrowful,

even to death.

 

In the very next breath,

Jesus say, Father,

not as I will,

but as you will.

 

It seems to me,

at this point in Jesus’ life,

He is saying,

if I do my will instead

of the Father’s,

 it will cause

the death of My soul.

 

The thing that

 I really want to point out

or get from this scripture

for our study,

is Jesus is saying

that if He does His will

 instead of the Father’s will,

it would change

 His eternal destiny.

Here in lies the power of the soul.

 

When we are saved, born again,

recreated we are saying to God,

Father God,

Not My Will,

But Your Will,

Be Done With My Life.

 

The truth that was not taught

to the body of Christ in my

country, the USA.

 

It is no longer I who live

but Jesus Christ

who lives in me.

 

 When you accept Jesus as savior,

from that point on

in your life you are making

the power that is in your soul

subject to God.

 

He will forever have the

final say so with all

that you choose

 to use the soul for.

 

He has no desire for

another Lucifer or

Adam experience.

 

The only soul experiences that

 God is interested in

 is the one that follows.

 

The reason for our time

 on this earth and the

 things that we experience

 on the earth is for

 us to prove to God

that we will make the same

choices that Jesus made

 here in the garden of Gethsemane.

 

For those that make the choice

to give up all to God,

 

(1 Cor 2:9 NKJV)

But as it is written: "Eye has not seen,

 nor ear heard, Nor have entered into

the heart of man The things which

God has prepared for those who love Him."

 

It is our choice to make the same

decision that Jesus Did.

FATHER

NOT MY WILL BE DONE,

BUT YOUR WILL BE DONE

 

(John 12:27 NKJV)

 "Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say?

'Father, save Me from this hour'?

But for this purpose I came to this hour.

 

(Matthew 26:38 – 39 NKJV)

(38) Then He said to them,

"My soul is exceedingly sorrowful,

even to death.

Stay here and watch with Me."

(39) He went a little farther and

 fell on His face, and prayed, saying,

 "O My Father, if it is possible,

let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless,

not as I will,

but as You will."

 

Jesus paid a very big price

for our redemption,

to make us a part of His Body.

Probably much more

than we will understand

until we are with

 Him in heaven.

 

 How little does He ask in

asking us to give all to Him,

 His Body during

the time we are on this earth.

 

 Individualism

is out in the New Testament.

If you allow

yourself to be valued above

 any other part

of the Body of Christ,

you have missed the

purpose of the

crucifixion of Christ

 

This is not about us, it is about Him.

 

The crucifixion is where

the final battle for all eternity

was fought and won.

 Jesus determined within Him self that

He would do the Fathers will at all cost,

He would give up all that

He knew and Loved,

 the place and relationship that

He held with the father.

He gave up all to take

the sins of the world unto

Him self.

At this point He was no longer

 a Capital Letter,

any thing special.

He was an individual that

 chose to be a spirit,

 a soul, a mind and a body

filled with sin.

He was then forsaken by God,

separated from God,

for the payment of

 my sin and your sin.

For God has no fellowship

with sin.

 

Read the following scripture

and you will see where His hope

lay in His choice to give up all for God

 

(Acts 2:25 – 35 NKJV)

(25) "For David says concerning Him:

'I foresaw the LORD always before my face,

 For He is at my right hand,

that I may not be shaken.

(26) Therefore my heart

rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;

Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.

(27) For You will not leave my soul in Hades,

 Nor will You allow Your Holy

One to see corruption.

 (28) You have made known to me the ways of life;

You will make me full of joy in Your presence.'

 (29) "Men and brethren,

let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David,

 that he is both dead and buried,

 and his tomb is with us to this day.

(30) "Therefore, being a prophet,

and knowing that God had sworn

 with an oath to him that

 of the fruit of his body,

according to the flesh,

 He would raise up the Christ

 to sit on his throne,

(31) "he, foreseeing this,

spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ,

that His soul was not left in Hades

(HELL), nor did His flesh see corruption.

(32) "This Jesus God has raised up,

of which we are all witnesses.

(33) "Therefore being exalted

to the right hand of God,

and having received from the Father

 the promise of the Holy Spirit,

 He poured out this which

you now see and hear.

(34) "For David did not ascend into the heavens,

but he says himself:

 'The LORD said to my Lord,

"Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool."'

 

The power for Jesus to change his own

destiny lay in his struggle in the garden of Gethsemane.

"My soul is exceedingly sorrowful,

even to death.

nevertheless, not as I will,

but as You will."

 

Jesus chose to not do His will

but do God’s will,

 to do God's will which

was written in the Word.

In doing so He submitted

His Soul or will to God,

So "that His soul was not

left in Hades (HELL),

nor did His flesh see corruption."

Therefore my soul will not

have to be destroyed in

Hades or Hell

And my flesh would

not have to see corruption.

If I will submit my will to the Father.

 

Bottom line,

in Loving the Lord our God

 with all our souls

I choose to submit my soul,

 my will to do the

 Fathers will for all eternity.

I chose to place the time

 I spend studying the Word

above all else on this earth

 so that I may know the Word.

In knowing the Word I will chose to

always do the Fathers will

and not my will,

therein

I LOVE THE LORD MY GOD

WITH ALL MY SOUL.

 

There is much that goes into the daily choice

to sanctify or separate our souls to do the will

of the Father and not our own will.

Through the power that is within the

Word we can make the choices.

God understands the struggle and within

the Word He has given us our answers.

 

The next scripture that lead me to believe

that the soul possess the power that we

have mentioned is (Luke 16:19 - 31NKJV).

 Read this scripture slowly and look for the

details of where each of these individuals

are after there death. Listen to what they

say or what they are feeling. Before you start

I would insert that I do not believe this to be

a made up store because Jesus says there was

a certain rich man and He calls the man laid

at the gate by name, Lazarus.

 

(Luke 16:19 - 31 NKJV)

19 "There was a certain rich man

who was clothed

in purple and fine linen and

fared sumptuously every day.

20 "But there was a certain beggar

named Lazarus, full of sores,

who was laid at his gate,

21 "desiring to be fed with the crumbs which

 fell from the rich man's table.

Moreover the dogs

came and licked his sores.

22 "So it was that the beggar died,

 and was carried by the angels to

Abraham's bosom.

 The rich man also died and was buried.

23 "And being in torments in Hades,

he lifted up his eyes

 and saw Abraham afar off,

and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 "Then he cried and said,

 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me,

and send Lazarus that he may dip the

tip of his finger in water and

cool my tongue; for I am

tormented in this flame.'

25 "But Abraham said,

'Son, remember that in your lifetime

 you received your good things,

and likewise Lazarus evil things;

but now he is comforted and

you are tormented.

26 'And besides all this,

between us and you

there is a great gulf fixed,

 so that those who

want to pass from here to you cannot,

nor can those from there pass to us.'

27 "Then he said,

 'I beg you therefore, father,

that you would send him to

 my father's house,

 28 'for I have five brothers,

that he may testify to them,

 lest they also come to

this place of torment.'

29 "Abraham said to him,

'They have Moses and the prophets;

let them hear them.'

30 "And he said,

'No, father Abraham;

but if one goes to them

 from the dead, they will repent.'

31 "But he said to him,

 'If they do not hear Moses

and the prophets,

 neither will they be persuaded

 though one rise from the dead.'"

 

I want to concentrate on what we know about

the rich man based on this scripture and the

 previous scriptures we have studied about the soul up to now.

  • At the death of the body it is buried.
  • As soon as the body dies the rich man finds him self in Hell in torment.
  • The three parts of man that we have left, after the body is buried, that were mention in Mark 12:30 are the spirit/heart of man, the soul and the mind.
  • We know the spirit is the life force of man, that which lives forever. The spirit of man or the really man, is what is actually, seeing, talking, desiring, filling, being tormented in the flame.
  • That which he is speaking from and remembering from is the mind.
  • The mind is where we learn about hot, cold and water.. He did not learn about cold and water in hell, cold and water are not in hell.
  • The mind is where we learn about and remember those around us, such as his brothers. He did not learn or remember his bothers from hell, but from his time on this earth. He also remembered and was told to remember Lazarus from the time he was on earth.
  • The mind is where we learn and feel emotions. He had concern about his brothers and their eternal well being. He learned and developed these feelings on earth, not in hell. His mind is very much in tact after the death of his body

So from our scripture, Mark 12:30, what is left?

The Soul

Where is the soul

From the scriptures above

we can say at this point

his soul is dead, given away,

This night (or day) his soul was required of him, destroyed in hell.

It can be destroyed in hell

(Matthew 10:28 NKJV)

 

We can lose our souls or we can exchange our souls for some worldly objects or experiences.

 (Matthew 16:26 NKJV)

 

Our souls can be required

of us at the death of the body.

 (Luke 12:19 –20 NKJV)

 

Our souls can be destroyed

from amount the people.

 (Acts 3:23 KJV)

 

If you turn a sinner from the error

 of his way you will

save a soul from death.

 At the death of the body

of a person that is not born again,

there is the death of the soul.

(James 5:20 NKJV)

Why is the soul dead, why did he lose his soul,

 

Within the soul

lies the power to

change ones destiny.

You can willfully

at any point

while you are on earth

choose to say to God,

FATHER

NOT MY WILL BE DONE,

BUT YOUR WILL BE DONE IN MY LIFE.

 

At the point you walk through the gates of hell

you lose the right to ever change anything forever,

including where you will spend eternity,

it has be chosen for you!

 

The day we face the reality of hell

 is the day that stuff

on this earth will lose its value

and the value of saving the souls of man

will be the reason for our existence.

 

Does this sound a little

like what Christ is like?

 

Read the following scriptures

concerning the

soul and you will find

God’s understanding

and His Help.

 

(Note; when the word soul is place in

( )

after a word,

this means that in the original

language the word was Soul)

 

God Has A Soul, and within

His soul is a purpose

for your life.

 Submit your soul to God and

His purpose for your life

 will be revealed.

 

(Luke 9:56 NKJV)

"For the Son of Man did not come

to destroy men's lives(souls)

but to save them."

And they went to another village.

 

(Matthew 12:18 NKJV)

"Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen,

My Beloved in whom

My soul is well pleased!

I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He

will declare justice to the Gentiles.

 

Our daily battle

(Heb 12:3 NKJV)

For consider Him who endured

such hostility from

sinners against Himself,

lest you become weary

and discouraged in your souls.

 

Not my will but yours Father

 

(Matthew 10:39 NKJV)

"He who finds his (soul)life will lose it,

 and he who loses his (soul)life for

My sake will find it.

 

(Matthew 16:25 NKJV)

"For whoever desires to save

 his (soul) life will lose it,

but whoever loses his  (Soul)life

for My sake will find it.

 

Having a struggle with your own will,

turn to Jesus.

 

(Matthew 11:29 –30 NKJV)

(29) "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls. (30) "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

 

(1 Pet 2:25 NKJV)

For you were like sheep going astray,

but have now returned to the

Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

From within a surrendered soul

will come much

praise and worship unto God

 

(Luke 1:46 – 47 NKJV)

(46) And Mary said:

"My soul magnifies the Lord,

 (47) And my spirit has rejoiced

in God my Savior."

As God did with Jesus

in the garden of Gethsemane,

He sent an angel to strengthen His soul,

He will do the same for you.

 

(Acts 14:22 NKJV)

strengthening the souls of the disciples,

 exhorting them to continue in the faith,

and saying,

"We must through many tribulations

enter the kingdom of God."

Those That Surrender All And Continually

 

(Psa 91:1 NKJV) …….

"dwell in the secret

 place of the Most High

 Shall abide under

the shadow of the Almighty"

 

and they shall Have

Their Souls Anchored On The Solid Rock

 

(Heb 6:19 NKJV)

This hope we have as an anchor

of the soul, both sure and steadfast,

and which enters the

Presence behind the veil,

 

If You Want Your Soul To Prosper,

You Must Be Subject To

All Authority That Is Ordained By God.

 

(Rom 13:1 NKJV)

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities.

For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.

 

(Heb 13:17 NKJV)

Obey those who rule over you,

and be submissive,

for they watch out for your souls,

as those who must give account.

Let them do so with joy and not with grief,

for that would be unprofitable for you.

  • Are you complaining about any part of our spiritual leaders?

 

Are you complaining about your job?

 

Are you complaining about friends or relatives?

 

Are you complaining about or to your family?

 

Are you complaining to God about anything?

 

Complaining is not ever an option.

The only option that God gives us is the Word.

 A good Word to use to

replace complaining is one we

 offered in studying the mind.

 

(Phil 4:4 – 9 NKJV)

4 Rejoice in the Lord always.

Again I will say, rejoice!

5 Let your

gentleness be known to all men.

The Lord is at hand.

6 Be anxious for nothing,

 but in everything by prayer and

supplication, with thanksgiving,

let your requests be made known to God;

7 and

the peace of God,

which surpasses all understanding,

will  guard your hearts and minds

through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren,

whatever things are true,

whatever things are noble,

whatever things are just,

whatever things are  pure,

whatever things are lovely,

whatever things are of

good report,

 if there is any virtue

and if there is anything praiseworthy;

meditate on these things.

9 The things which you learned

and received and heard

 and the God of peace will be with you.

Have you ever meditated on any of the

Whatevers,

on a good report,

on virtue or

on something praiseworthy,

and then start complaining about it.

If you have, well that’s stupid to even to suggest

you have, and if you have,

I hope you were alone.

 

When your soul prospers then

 God will allow the other important aspects

of our lives the prosper.

When we are doing our part within the body,

when we are,

God centered and others centered,

then, Oh then, hold on for

the experience of your life.

 

(3 John 1:2 NKJV)

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper

in all things and be in health,

just as your soul prospers.

 

You may know someone who

confesses to be a Christian

 an is prosperous,

and yet they are not having

the spiritual experience of

an anointing from

God to do His will.

If a person is living under the anointing,

 you will see a  denying of self,

 which will show up as self sacrifice

 to do His Work and His Will.

 This person walking under

the anointing will be sacrificing self,

time and money

for the cause of Jesus Christ.

Under the anointing of God

 a person will be God-centered and

the will, the soul being of the

body of Christ-Centered,

and the lost and dying world or others-centered.

If this is not the focus

of any persons life,

rich or poor,

he does not have the anointing of the

 Lord and is not loving

the Lord God with all his being.

 

The day we see the truth from God

 by receiving the Rhema of the word,

the importance of the things

 of this world will change drastically.

 

We are a soldier of Christ here to battle

the forces of evil on this earth.

We are "sojourners and pilgrims"

and we will not be

entangled with the affairs of this life.

 

(1 Pet 2:11 NKJV)

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims,

abstain from fleshly lusts

which war against the soul,

 

(2 Tim 2:4 NKJV)

No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.

 

When we willfully choose to make

the change from a self-centered,

world-centered and

stuff-centered individual,

to being God-centered,

the well being of

the body of Christ-Centered,

and the lost and dying

world or others-centered

we truly understand

what it means to lose

 our lives for the cause of Christ.

The suffering that we will

 face and endure will be made out

the souls desire to be doing

 Gods good works.

 

(1 Pet 4:19 NKJV)

Therefore let those who suffer

according to the will of God

commit their souls to Him

 in doing good,

as to a faithful Creator.

 

An individual that does not

understand the act of loving

the Lord our God

with all his soul

will never be fully free

from the things

of this world.

Some form of the

lust of the eyes,

 the lust of the flesh,

the pride of life

or greed will be apparent in his life.

You have to willfully

choose to love God

with all your soul

or you will remain a unstable

soul that will not,

on purpose, give up the things

 of this world to

build a heavenly bank account.

 

(2 Pet 2:14 NKJV)

having eyes full of adultery

and that cannot cease from sin,

enticing unstable souls.

They have a heart trained

in covetous practices,

and are accursed children.


This scripture is referring to spiritual adultery.
What has been missed in most teaching 
that I have heard is how God views anything that
we focus our time on that is not centered around
our relationship with Him, Jesus, the Holy Spirit
and building the kingdom, can very quickly
fall into the defination of spiritual adultery.
This adultery is based on the amount of
time, money, energy,
 thought, hearing and sight
we allot to the whatever.

In closing the follow scriptures speak directly
to what could be termed  as
Spiritual Adultery.

1 John 2:15-17 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. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

 

James 4: 1-6 New Living Translation (NLT)

Drawing Close to God

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. Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him.[b] And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say,

“God opposes the proud
    but gives grace to the humble.”[c]
