“[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Brothers and Sisters there is a Difference in Living Spiritually Minded and being Carnally Minded. To be Spiritually Minded one must Put God’s Will, God’s Desire First and Foremost before those things that reside in the Flesh.
This is why the Scripture states there is No Condemnation To Them Who Walk In The Spirit, for that persons Mind, Soul, Strength, Heart have been Surrendered to God To Control.
“And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
There are Too Many Carnal Minded Believers, that is, The Blood Bought who, If the church is Teaching Life Pleasing Messages then I can say they are Carnal Minded, but We, who are Spiritual Minded must Walk A Disciplined Life, fighting daily the Flesh at all the times, being Reproved, Rebuked for Jesus.
We Must Desire to be Spiritually Minded, it does not just come to us, as a Servant who brings tea. You, My Brothers and Sisters must Fight, must Desire, must Seek in order to Become Spiritually Minded.
“14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.”
“1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
You Men, my Brothers, I do Rebuke! For it is Your Responsibility to be Spiritually Minded to Teach Your House to BE Spiritually Minded!! For You, my Brothers, do not Live A Sacrificial Life, but one of Convenience to Your Flesh.
Just one example… Most are Involved in Sports of some sort and have made it a Priority In Their Life, whether it is to Watch, Participate or Encourage. You have Placed this at the Height Of Enjoyment in Your Life, even demanding others to participate in Your Joy. You, My Brothers, are Carnally Minded, making Sports Your God!!! The sad part is, it is from The Leadership down. For those Who Are Called into an Office have bowed down to two things, those who Want Sports and those who in Society have Ordained To Efficiency There Of! Consider this, if there is a Big Game on, do you not keep track of Time so that you do not Miss what’s happening, and have not some complained to church Leadership of these Times so that they will Dismiss church early if necessary on Your Behalf! But this is only One Area.
You Women, my Sisters, I do Rebuke! For you Rise Up in All Manners seeking Control, Power and Authority, justifying within yourselves Equal Rights! Many Demand that they Have The Right…, but, What does The Scriptures say!! For in Your Rising up do you Teach children to do likewise, both within Your House and Without Your House!!! But again, this is only One Area.
My Brothers and Sisters do you Not Understand that we Must Be Transformed Into The Image Of Our God, into The Image Of Jesus, The Christ! These means we go from Carnal to Spiritual in All Avenues within Our Lives.
“Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Too many Blood Bought have taken this Scripture above to it’s Shortest Understanding, that is, “…I Believe In Jesus, therefore I am Brand New…”, herein is the Deception of the Enemy Satan. It is the Last of this Scripture that is important, “…All Things Are BECOME, BECOME, BECOME NEW!…” . This is the Passing from Carnal to Spiritual Minded. It has to do with How You Perceive things. If you Perceive that it is Good, by Your Understanding, then it must be good, not taking into Your Understanding, What Does God Say.
Another Carnal Minded Action is this…You go to church because it is the Right Thing To Do, it is Godly. If you are Not going to Church to Learn Whom Your God Is, if you are Not going to Church to Have A Relationship With Your God, if you are Not Going To Church For Change In YOURSELF to BE LIKE GOD then, You Are Carnal Minded.
Now if You are Spiritual Minded, then are All Things Considered Before God, that means, All Things that Touch Your Life, God Is First. This encompasses Your Job, Your Spouse, Your Children, Your Friends and Society As A Whole that You Meditate On Jesus First for His Answer whether it is a Yes, or a No. This also includes What You Say, How You Say It, To Whom You Are Speaking To. Also What You Wear, What You Eat, Drink. Also, Where You Live and anything else that I may have not mentioned, but, You must Listen To The Spirit In All Things!!!
To be Spiritual Minded means that Jesus has to be the First In All Things, if He is any less then, are you Carnal Minded.
Too many would say that is To Hard, To Much Work…I WANT To Be Free, not Under Rules, Ordinances or Laws. But see, to be Spiritual Minded then all of these things Must Exists in Your Life, that is, there are Rules, Ordinances and Laws that I Must Follow to be as Jesus Is, to be as The Father Is and The Holy Spirit Is. For the Kingdom Of God is Very Orderly in every aspect.
My Witness…I have given up Friends, Quit Jobs, Excommunicated Brothers and Sisters, Lost Family all because of being Spiritual Minded, for the Carnal Mind would have lost none. It is a Choice, it is a Desire to be As God Is… do you think this Scripture is in vain…
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.”
In this one Scripture it tells us How We Are To Live. That We, My Brothers and Sisters are to Do The Will Of The Father on Earth the SAME AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, Presenting The Kingdom Of God On Earth! But in order for this to happen we must move from being Carnal Minded to Spiritual Minded and in order for this to happen we Must Change Who, How We Are, in Every Aspect Of Life.
This goes from the First Thing you do in the morning to the Last Thing as night. My Witness… my First Thing in the morning before I Do Anything is I lay Prostrate before Jesus and Pray, in Thanks Giving, in Petitions and My Self to be Like Jesus. My Day I Consider my Task in the Flesh Weighing All Things To The Spirit, Praying throughout My Day, being Instant In Season and Out of Season in All Things. I End My Day in Thanks Giving, Petitions and Protection against the Enemy in Our Sleep. My Life Walks In Spiritual Affairs Continuously. This does not mean I do not make Mistakes, that Sin may not happen, but on the contrary, repenting continually as long as I Live On This Earth. But in those things that are Mistakes, in those Sins, I am Quick to Repent, to Jesus First, then to others if need be and try not to do them again if possible.
To Be Spiritually Minded takes Hard Work, it takes of being Aware Every Moment Of Time Whom You Serve, What God’s Spiritual Rules are, and then to Obey. Jesus said that we must do two things, to Carry Our Cross and to Endure Until The End, there is No Maybe, No Choice, Jesus Commandment is Out Of Love, to The Father First then to us who Walk In Obedience.
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
“And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
“And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
“And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
