JUST NOT THERE YET !

 

 

WOMANS STORY  :  RAISED IN CHURCH,  I KNOW GOD, & KNOW THE WORD; & EVERYTHING YOUR SAYING ABOUT HEALING, SOUNDS RIGHT

 

BUT I’M JUST NOT THERE YET !

 

 

 Matthew 9:27-29 (KJV)      TWO BLIND MEN
27  And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.

 

GET A PICTURE OF THIS IN YOUR MIND

 

NOTICE, JESUS DIDN’T STOP AND HEAL THEM, BECAUSE IN THIS NEXT VERSE

 
28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
29  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

 

WHY DID JESUS WAIT TILL, HE GOT INTO THE HOUSE, TO HEAL THEM

 

I THINK, THEY JUST WASN’T THERE YET, AND HE WAS WAITING ON THEM TO GET THERE !  (IN THEIR FAITH)

 

THIS IS SO TRUE, FOR ALOT OF US TODAY !

LETS BE HONEST

WE’RE SIMPLY,  JUST NOT THERE YET !  ON SOME THINGS !

(ESPECIALLY) 

THE BIG ONE’S

 

=========================================================

 

HOW DO YOU GET THERE ?

 

  1. GOD’S WORD,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

UNDERSTANDING GOD’S WORD,  WHAT IT IS & HOW IT WORKS, CAN HELP GET YOU THERE !

 

SO; AS WE GO THROUGH THIS

LET’S LOOK AT GODS WORD AS SEED,  BECAUSE IN ALL ACTUALLITY, THATS WHAT IT IS.       JESUS SAID SO; HIMSELF

 

 

 Luke 8:11 (KJV) WHEN JESUS WAS EXSPLAINING THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER  
11  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.          WORD = SEED

 

(LAY A FOUNDATION)

IN THE BEGINNING GOD DESIGNED ALL OF CREATION,

ON THE SEED PRINCIPLE ( SEED, TIME & HARVEST )

 

I KNOW HE SPOKE IT ALL INTO EXISTANCE, IN THE BEGINNING

BUT IT ALL WAS SET UP ON THE SEED PRINCIPLE

 

Genesis 1:11 (KJV)  GRASS, HERBS, AND TREES 
11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

 

Genesis 1:22 (KJV)  FISH, FOWL, BEASTS AND CATTLE 
22  And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.


Genesis 1:28 (KJV)  CREATION OF MAN
28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 

SO, IT’S EASY TO SEE, IN GOD’S DEVINE DESIGN,

EVERYTHING, WAS SPOKEN INTO EXSISTANCE

ON THE SEED PRINCIPLE

 

EVERYTHING, IS TO REPRODUCE AFTER ITS OWN KIND

 (THROUGH, SEED-TIME-HARVEST)

 

===============================================

 

 

JESUS, SPENT ALOT OF HIS TIME

 TEACHING ON THIS SEED PRINCIPLE

 

 

MARK 4, JESUS IS TEACHING THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER

 

Mark 4:13 (KJV) SOME OF HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM , ASKING ABOUT IT 
13  And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables
 

IF YOU DON’T GET THIS, YOU WANT GET NOTHING ELSE,( IT’S A MUST )

 

THAT GOES FOR US AS WELL TODAY (GOT TO KNOW IT)

 

 

 Mark 4:26-28 (KJV)  AFTER HE EXSPLANS IT, HE GOES EVEN FUTHER
26  And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

27  And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.  (HOLD YOUR PLACE HERE)

 

SO EVERYTHING WE DO IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD, CAN BE COMPARED TO OR SEEN, IN THE NATURAL, AS UNTO THE SEED PRINCIPLE

===============================================

 

SEEDS ARE AN AMAZING THING

SEEDS HAVE  LIFE  ON THE INSIDE OF THEM

BUT THEY MUST BE PLANTED IN THE GROUND, BEFORE THEY CAN REPRODUCE

 

WHEN THE LIFE IN THAT SEED, IS SURROUNDED BY THE SOIL ( IT COMES ALIVE )  & PRODUCES A HARVEST

 

NOW I CAN’T EXPLAIN HOW IT WORKS, BUT I KNOW IT WILL WORK       IF I WILL JUST PLANT ONE 

 

THE REASON IT WORKS, IS BECAUSE GOD MADE THE EARTH TO DO SO.

AND WE SEE THIS IN THE NEXT VERSE.

 
28  For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.  (SEED-TIME-HARVEST)

 

WHAT A MYSTERY !   HOW GOD DESIGNED THE GROUND, TO MAKE SEED GROW

 

 WOW   

====================================================

 

THINK ABOUT THIS- – – – – – –

THE GROUND DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE TO WHAT KIND OF SEED, THAT IT GROWS

GOOD OR BAD  BRIARS-POSION IVY-SHUMACK / CORN-ECT.            

 

(MY POINT IS THAT)

IT JUST DOES  WHAT IT WAS CREATED TO DO,                                     ( IT JUST GROWS THE SEED )   AND IT ALWAYS  WORKS!

 

===============================================

 

LET ME GET YOU TO THINKING 

ITS THE SAME WAY WITH A WOMAN, WHEN A MAN PUTS HIS SEED IN HER, SHE IS DESIGNED BY GOD TO GIVE BIRTH TO A CHILD IN    9 MONTHS  (SEED-TIME-HARVEST)

 

THATS AMAZING

BUT, IT’S THE WAY GOD DESIGNED IT TO BE

 

BECAUSE OF THAT, MAN CAME UP WITH BIRTH CONTROL

IF NOT, WE WOULD ALL HAVE 12 KIDS,  WOW

 

MY SON ONCE SAID, CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM GOD, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE AS MANY AS GOD GIVES US !

I SAID YOUR GOING TO HAVE A BUNCH UNLESS YOU USE SOME CONTROL  (AFTER 4, I THINK HE GETS IT)  KIDS WILL COME IF YOU PLANT THE SEED

 

(CONTINUE) 

JUST LIKE THE GROUND, THE WOMB OF A WOMAN, DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE TO WHO’S SEED IT CARRIERS

GOOD OR BAD

 

I KNOW A LADY, THAT WAS RAPED AT 16 OR 17 YEARS OLD AND SHE GAVE BIRTH 9 MONTHS LATER, TO TWINS

 

NOW I KNOW THATS HARD, BUT THE POINT I’M TRYING TO MAKE IS GOD HAS DESIGNED EVERYTHING ON THE SEED PRINCIPLE, TO REPRODUCE

IT ALWAYS WORKS, REGARDLESS

 

===================================================

 

 

 STAY WITH ME       ( I’VE TALKED ABOUT THE GROUND & WOMAN )

GOD HAS DESIGNED OUR HEARTS TO FUNCTION,        THE SAME WAY AS THE GROUND / SEED & WOMAN / MANS SEED

 

 

YOUR HEART, IS FERTAL GROUND, & WILL GROW WHATEVER KIND OF SEED YOU OR ANYONE ELSE PLANTS IN IT

GOOD OR BAD

 

YOUR HEART DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE TO WHAT KIND OF SEED IS PLANTED,   OR  WHO PLANTS IT

 

 

HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN   this is done PRIMARLY BY YOUR WORDS

ALSO, YOUR THOUGHTS & ACTIONS         ( LATER )

ACTIONS IS STRONGER THAN WORDS SOMETIMES

LET’S DEAL WITH YOUR WORDS, FIRST       #1 WAY

 

MANY TIMES, JESUS SAID

HE THAT HATH EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR

 

BECAUSE, WORDS OR SEEDS      ( ITS GOD DIVINE DESIGN )

 

 

Matthew 12:37 (KJV)     JESUS SAID
37  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

 

 WOW = SO YOUR WORDS ARE THAT POWERFUL

 

  Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)
21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it  shall eat the  fruit thereof.

 

TONGUE=WORD=SEED, WHEN PLANTED=FRUIT 

 

 FRUIT, COMES FROM SEED,  THAT YOUR TONGUE PLANTED YESTERDAY, LAST WEEK, & LAST YEAR    SEED-TIME-HARVEST

 

LET’S READ THAT IN GOD’S WORD TRANSLATION

Proverbs 18:21 (GW)
21  The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love to talk will have to eat their own words.

  

Many people who don’t realize the power of their own words are talking themselves to death.

 

They speak forth whatever negative thing they feel or have been told and don’t realize they are signing their own death warrants.

 

YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAY

I FEEL LIKE I’M CATCHING THE FLU  ( DON’T CATCH IT )

YOU JUST SPOKE DEATH, (PLANTED A SEED) 

 

 

SPEAK LIFE,  THANK YOU JESUS , THAT BY YOUR STRIPES I’M HEALED & THESE FLU SYMPTOMS HAS GOT TO GO IN JESUS NAME

 

INSTEAD OF DEATH, LIKE, MY THROAT IS SORE,   MY BODYS AKING

 

 

 

THIS IS NOT ONLY TRUE OF THE WORDS WE SPEAK OURSELVES

 

BUT every word we hear FROM OTHERS, IS SEEDS ALSO,     AND produces either life or death. We not only have to police the words we speak, but we also need to turn away from the words of death that others speak

 

BECAUSE, THIS IS ANOTHER WAY, BAD SEEDS CAN GET INTO YOUR HEART

 

REMEMBER, YOUR HEART IS FERTAL GROUND,                                  AND DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE TO WHO IS SOWING THE SEED, BUT WILL GROW AUTOMATICALLY  WHATEVER  SEED THATS PLANTED 

 

SO YOU HAVE TO GAURD YOUR OWN HEART

 

 THIS IS HUGE, AND YOU’VE GOT TO SEE THIS

 

EVERYDAY, YOU HAVE PEOPLE, TV, SOCIAL MEDIA, NEWS, CO-WORKERS, AND YES FRIENDS

 PLANTING BAD SEEDS INTO YOUR HEART

 

AND MOST PEOPLE, DON’T EVEN KNOW IT

 

THEN THEY WONDER WHY DO I HAVE ALL THESE WEEDS GROWING, IN MY LIFE

 

===================================================

 

 

Psalm 34:12-13 (KJV)
12  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

 

 

THIS VERSE,  asks who wants a long and good life. IT ALSO explains how to have all of that. = = =

 

 

By controlling  your tongues    IF YOUR LIPS IS MOVING  (REMEMBER, YOUR SOWING SEEDS)

 

YOUR MOUTH = IS A SEED BROADCASTER

THE WORD SAYS, THAT YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW, 

IT’S ONE OF GOD’S DEVINE DESIGNS   (IT JUST WORKS) 

 

MOST PEOPLE DON’T USE THIS FORMULA TODAY.

They think loving life is all about self-indulgence and saying whatever you want    IN AMERICA, FREE SPEACH


YES, YOUR FREE, TO PLANT AS MUCH DEATH OR LIFE AS YOU WANT INTO YOUR LIFE & OTHERS

 

============================================== 

 

Proverbs 15:4 (KJV)
4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

 

THERE ARE SO MANY SCRIPTURES, THAT PLACES OUR TONGUES / WORDS,  INTO THE SEED PRINCIPLE

 

IF YOU EVER CONNECT ALL THE DOTS, IT WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THE WORDS THAT YOU OR OTHERS SPEAK INTO YOUR LIFES


 

 Ephesians 4:29 (KJV)
29  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

 

EDIFYING = TO BUILD UP = TORAISE  UP &  HELP MATURE SOMEONE

 

SO WE SHOULD JUDGE EVERY WORD WE SPEAK,           BY ASKING ONE SIMPLE QUESTION,                          DOES THIS WORD BUILD UP OR TEAR DOWN

 

 

BECAUSE OUR WORDS ARE SEEDS, WITH LIFE OR DEATH IN THEM,         THAT REPRODUCES  LIFE OR DEATH, WHEREVER THIER PLANTED

 

SO SPEAK WORDS WITH LIFE IN THEM,         TO YOURSELF & OTHERS

 

==============================================

 

 

GOD HAS GIVEN US SEEDSFOR EVERY NEED WE WILL EVER HAVE

YOU JUST GOT TO SOW THEM

BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER GROW,  UNTIL YOU SOW 

 

NATURAL

MUSTARD GREENS / SEEDS

CORN / SEEDS

ORANGE JUICE / SEEDS

APPLES / SEEDS

 

SPIRITUAL

SALVATION / SEED

HEALING / SEED              GOD’S WORD

PEACE / SEED

PROSPERITY / SEED

 

===============================================

 (STEP #2)

AFTER YOU PLANT A SEED, YOU GOT TO  

WATER IT, & CULTIVATE IT

 

WE SEE THIS IN

 1 Corinthians 3:6 (KJV)
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

 


IF YOU PLANT SEED, OR ANYONE ELSE, THEN IT MUST BE WATERED,

 

SO, HOW DID APOLLOS WATER PAULS SEED ?

 

APOLLOS WASN’T PREACHING ANOTHER GOSPEL, BUT WAS

AFFIRMING THE WORD PAUL PREACHED

HE WAS PREACHING THE SAME THING

 

THEN GOD GAVE THE INCREASE

 

THE SAME WORD SPOKEN, THAT PLANTS THE SEED= WATERS THAT SEED

GOOD OR BAD    

 

(EXAMPLE)

GOOD SEED

IM PLANTING SEED IN YOU RIGHT NOW, WITH THE WORD

THEN, SUNDAY MORNING PASTOR SHANE PREACHES THE SAME THING,  HE IS WATERING THE SEED I PLANTED, AND GOD GIVES THE INCREASE AMEN

 

BAD SEED

YOU SAY, I FEEL LIKE I’M CATCHING THE FLU

THEN SOMEONE ELSE, SAYES, YOU LOOK BAD, ARE YOU COMING DOWN WITH SOMETHING(YOUR BAD SEED, JUST GOT WATERED) 

DIG THAT SEED UP, IMMEDIATELY

 

=============================================== 

IN CLOSING

 

LOOKING AT GOD’S WORD AS SEED & HOW TO GET IT INTO OUR HEARTS, SO IT CAN GROW AND REPRODUCE ITSELF

 

 Proverbs 4:20-23 (KJV)
20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

THE GREEK WORD USED FOR ATTEND, MEANS TO PRICK UP THE EARS OR HEARKEN TO, WE GOT TO WANT; TO HEAR GODS WORD

 

Mark 4:23-25 (KJV)
23  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
24  And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
25  For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

 

Mark 4:23-25 (GW)
23  Let the person who has ears listen!”
24  He went on to say, “Pay attention to what you’re listening to! {Knowledge} will be measured out to you by the measure {of attention} you give. This is the way knowledge increases.
25  Those who understand {these mysteries} will be given {more knowledge}. However, some people don’t understand {these mysteries}. Even what they understand will be taken away from them.”

 

YOU GOT TO WANT IT


21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
WE CAN’T MEDITATE, IN OUR HEART ON GODS WORD, IF WE DON’T READ IT WITH OUR EYES, & KNOW IT.

WE’VE GOT TO SPEND TIME IN GODS WORD

 

22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

YOU’VE GOT TO FIND THEM,  SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES (FOR GODS TRUTHS)

THE WORD OF GOD NOT ONLY GIVES SPIRITUAL LIFE, BUT ALSO GIVE US PHYSICAL LIFE ASWELL 

GOD’S WORD WILL PHYSICALLY PRODUCE HEALTH IN YOU.


23  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

GUARD YOUR HEART WITH ALL YOUR MITE, OF WHAT GOES INTO IT

FOR THAT IS WHATS GOING TO COME OUT, AND INFLUENCE EVERYTHING ELSE IN YOUR LIFE

 

SO IF YOU HAVE THE WORD OF GOD IN YOUR HEART,  YOU WILL HAVE LIFE, & HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY 

 

 

 ===================================

 

 

 

 ANOTHER THING TO HELP YOU GET THERE IS

  1. RENEWING YOUR MIND ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


I WAS TAUGHT, IF YOU WAS BORN AGAIN, YOU WAS A NEW CREATURE,

ALL THINGS BECAME NEW,  YOU DIDN’T DO THOSE OLD THINGS ANYMORE, & IF YOU DID, YOU DIDN’T GET IT !

 

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT THAT DIDN’T WORK SO WELL FOR ME

 

THATS BECAUSE, I BECAME A NEW CREATURE IN MY SPIRIT

 

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV)  SPIRIT, SOUL, & BODY 
23  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.

 

WHEN YOUR BORN AGAIN, YOUR

SPIRIT IS SAVED, SOUL IS BEING SAVED, BODY WILL BE SAVED

 

 

 

THE STRUGGLE, IS GETTING OUR SOUL (MIND, WILL & EMOTIONS ) TO LINE UP WITH OUR SPIRIT

 

ITS NOT GOD’S WILL THAT WE ONLY BE CHANGED ON THE INSIDE,

BUT, HE ALSO WANTS TO MANIFEST HIS SALVATION IN OUR PHYSICAL LIVES ALSO.

THAT IS DONE THROUGH THE RENEWING OF OUR MINDS

 

IF WE CAN CHANGE OUR THINKING ON WHAT GODS WORD SAYS ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE HAVE IN CHRIST

 

THEN OUR SOULS (MIND, WILL & EMOTIONS) WILL LINE UP WITH OUR SPIRITS & THE BODY HAS TO FOLLOW SUITE

 

 

If we fail to renew our minds, we can live our entire time on this earth without experiencing the abundant life that Jesus provided for us

 

 John 10:10 (KJV)
10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

NOT JUST THE LIFE TO COME, BUT NOW

 

 

NOW, WITH THAT BEING SAID, LETS LOOK AT PAULS TEACHINGS ON THIS SUBJECT
 

Galatians 5:16-17 (KJV)

16  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 
 17  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

 

 

KEEP IN MIND

PAUL, IS WRIGHTING TO CHRISTIANS 

AND SAYING THAT THE SPIRIT & THE FLESH DESIRE TOTAL OPPOSITE THINGS

 

AND IF WE INDULGE IN ONE, THE OTHER WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE HNDERED, OR NEGLECTED.  WE CANNOT SERVE BOTH

 

THE KEY IS TO GET THE FLESH LINED UP WITH THE SPIRIT

 

 

 

A parallel passage to this would be

 Romans 7:18-19 (KJV)
18  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.
19  For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

 

ALL OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT HERE.

 WE WANT TO DO ONE THING, BUT WIND UP DOING THE OPPOSITE.

 

BEFORE  PEOPLE ARE BORN AGAIN, THE ONLY TNING THEY HAVE  TO FIGHT AGAINST THIS INNER CONFLICT, IS WILL POWER. 

                        

THAT CAN MODIFY ACTIONS TO A DEGREE, BUT IT CAN’T DO A THING TO STAMP OUT THE INNER DESIRE. JESUS SAID THAT DESIRING IT IN OUR HEARTS IS AS BAD AS DOING IT (MATTHEW 5:27-28)                                                                           

 

WHEN WE ARE SAVED, OUR “OLD MAN”- (OUR OLD NATURE) IS GONE ROM.6:6

 

SO THEN, THE DRIVING FORCE THAT COMPELS US TO SIN IS GONE.

 

                                       

THE ONLY THING THAT IS LEFT IS AN UN-RENEWED MIND

IN WHICH A BORN AGAIN PERSON, IS STILL TEMPTED WITH OLD WAYS OR SIN

 

BECAUSE YOUR SOUL, ( MIND , WILL & EMOTIONS ) IS USE TO DOING THINGS   A CERTAIN  WAY.

 

NOW, YOUR SPIRIT HAS BEEN MADE RIGHTEOUS ( PERFECT )

SO, THE ONLY WAY  SINFUL DESIRES CAN COME IS THROUGH YOUR              UNRENEWED MIND.                                                                

 

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can renew our minds and break the dominion of sin (Romans 4:15 and 7:25).

 

PAUL EXPLAINS IN ROMANS 8  OF HOW TO OVERCOME THIS FRUSTRATION BETWEEN THE SPIRIT & THE FLESH, BY WALKING IN THE SPIRIT

 

THE BEGINNING OF WALKING IN THE SPIRIT, IS RENEWING YOUR MIND.

 


WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN

 

HOW DOES IT PERTAIN TO HEALING

 

 

SO, HOW DOES ALL THIS WORK

 

LETS LOOK AT THIS VERSE AGAIN  

Galatians 5:17 (KJV)

 17  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

 

WHEN A MAN IS BORN AGAIN, IF HIS FLESH, HASN’T BEEN DEALT WITH (TAMMEND)

IT CAN KEEP HIM FROM DOING THE THINGS HE SHOULD

 

YOU COULD SAY IT THIS WAY

( SO THAT YE CANNOT RECEIVE THE THINGS THAT YE WOULD )

 

AN UNRENEWED MIND, CAN KEEP YOU FROM  RECEIVING FROM GOD ASWELL. 

 

REMEMBER,  ITS THE UNRENEWED MIND THAT WANTS TO CONTINUE IN SIN, IN THE FIRST PLACE.

BECAUSE WE ARE CREATURES OF HABIT

 

AN UNRENEWED MIND, STILL THINKS SICKNESS AS BEING NORMAL, JUST LIFE (THE WAY ITS ALWAYS LOOKED AT SICKNESS)

 

MOST OF THE BLESSINGS OF GOD, DOESN’T JUST COME

WE HAVE TO POSITION OR ALIGN OURSELVES UP TO RECIEVE THEM FROM GOD

AND RENEWING OUR MIND IS ONE OF THEM

 

Many of us who have had made genuine commitments to the Lord but haven’t renewed our minds through God’s Word, have needlessly suffered many problems.

 

  

Romans 12:2 (KJV)
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.

 

THE GREEK WORD TRANSLATED “CONFORMED” HERE MEANS, TO FASHION ALIKE, CONFORM TO THE SAME PATTERN. 

 

MOST CHRISTIANS RECOGNIZE THAT THIS VERSE TELLS US THAT WE SHOULD BE DIFFERENT THAN UNBELIEVERS, BUT SEEM AT A LOSS AS TO HOW TO ACCOMPLISH IT.

 

THIS SAME VERSE GOES ON TO GIVE US THE ANSWER.

RENEWING OUR MINDS, ( THE KEY IS OUR MINDS ) 

 

 

THE GREEK WORD USED HERE FOR TRANSFORMED IS “METAMORPHOO” ITS THE SAME WORD WE GET OUR WORD “METAMORPHOSIS” FROM.

 

IT IS DESCRIBING A COMPLETE CHANGE, LIKE THAT OF A CATERPILLAR CHANGING INTO A BUTTERFLY.

 

Making our thinking line up with God’s Word will affect this complete transformation in our lives.

 

  

Romans 8:6-7 (KJV)
6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

 

 WHAT IS TO BE CARNALLY MINDED ?

  1. DEATH    2. ENMITY AGAINST GOD

 

REMEMBER, WE ARE SPIRIT, WE HAVE A SOUL(MIND, WILL & EMOTIONS) AND WE LIVE IN A BODY 

 

WHEN YOUR BORN AGAIN, YOUR SPIRIT IS MADE RIGHTIOUS

NOW, YOU HAVE A MIND THAT NEEDS TO BE RENEWED,

AND THAT IS WHAT PAUL IS REFERRING TO AS A CARNAL MIND  IT STILL THINKS THE SAME WAY,  AS IT DID,  BEFORE 

 

TO BE CARNALLY MINDED MEANS TO CATER TO THE APPETITES AND IMPULSES OF ONE’S  HUMAN NATURE WHICH IS DISPLEASING TO GOD.

 

CARNALLY MINDED IS THINKING AND DOING WHAT IS RIGHT IN ONE’S OWN EYES WHICH IS HUMANISM.

 

TO BE CARNALLY MINDED MEANS TO BE FACTS MINDED, SENSE RULED, EMOTIONS DRIVEN AND CONTROLLED BY SIN, DEMONS, AND NATURAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND RESULTS IN WHAT YOU CAN NATURALLY EXPECT.

 

TO BE CARNALLY MINDED MEANS YOU HAVE A MINDSET THAT IS CONTRARY TO GOD AND HIS WORD AND HIS WILL FOR YOUR LIFE AND HIS PLANNED OUTCOME FOR YOU IN ANY SITUATION.

 

THE CARNAL MIND  ALWAYS IS FOCUSED ON THE FACTS AND FOCUSED ON THE PROBLEMS ONLY GETTING BIGGER AND ALWAYS THERE’S LITTLE TO NO WAY OUT !

 

A CARNAL MINDSET IS ALWAYS WHAT YOU NATURALLY CAN EXPECT

 

CARNAL MINDED THINKERS ARE ALWAYS VICTIMS, & NEVER VICTORS 

 

 

 

GET RID OF YOUR STICKING THINKING

CAN’T BE TEMPTED WITH WHAT YOU DON’T THINK

 

 

 

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. 

YOUR THINKING CAN LEAD YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL, OR INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD

 

YOUR THINKING CAN HELP YOU RECIEVE THE PROMISES OF GOD

 

 Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

 your thinking is another way of sowing seed (Gods Word) into your heart

OR WATER, THE SEED THATS ALREADY BEEN PLANTED

 

 

 

  1. PROPER FELLOWSHIP,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

 1 Corinthians 15:33 (KJV)
33  Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

 

FELLOWSHIP WITH LIKE MINDED, PEOPLE

GO A STEP FURTHER, AND SAY, HANG AROUND, PEOPLE OF THE SAME FAITH

 


IF YOU THINK IT WANT HURT YOU,  YOUR DECEIVED

 

 Proverbs 27:17 (KJV)
17  Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

 

 works both ways,  good & bad

 

================================================ 

 

2 Peter 2:8 (KJV)  TALKING ABOUT LOT
8  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds😉

 

TODAY

WE LIVE IN AN UNGODLY SOCIETY, BUT CHRISTIANS DO WORSE THAN LOT

 

WE INVITE THE UNGODLINESS INTO OUR HOMES, THROUGH TELEVISION, MOVIES, RADIO, AND THE INTERNET. 

 

LETING THE WORLDS SYSTEM, PLANT THIER SEEDS OF DEATH INTO OUR HEARTS,  BY WHAT WE HEAR & SEE

 

PEOPLE WATCH, & LISTEN TO, AND READ DEPRESSING THINGS AND THEN WONDER WHY THEY GET DEPRESSED

 

 

  1. DETERMINATION & PATIENCE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

 REMEMBER,  ITS SEED , TIME & HARVEST

 

 

 

 

 

 close out,,,,,,,,, get the word planted, renew your mind with it, get the right friends
