Overcome Your Flesh

You overcome by being mindful of what God's Word says about you. When you are Word minded, your are spiritual minded because God's words are spirit and life (John 6:63). In your spirit, you are completely changed, eternal, sanctified, holy and perfected forever. As Jesus is--so are you! If you would dominate yourself with those thoughts, all it would produce is life and peace.

If you mind the things of the flesh, then you will be after the flesh and the physical realm will dominate you. In other words if you are having something other than life and peace, then you are not focusing on His word. In order to release God's power in your life you must overcome the flesh by continually focusing your mind on who you are and what you have in the spirit.

The Christian life is not just difficult to live, it is impossible. In your flesh, you can not do what the Lord has told you to do. He has commanded you to just bear it when someone insults you. If they slap you on the face, you are to turn the other cheek. If they sue you and take away your coat, you are to give them you cloak also (Matt. 5:39-40). Your natural self, independent of God just want do things like that. The Lord told us to do the opposite. Without supernatural help it is impossible to do what Jesus commanded. That is why Paul said "it is no longer me that lives, but Christ who lives through me" (Gal. 2:20).

In your spirit, you have an unlimited ability to forgive, endure, believe and hope. If you catch yourself saying "I can't put up with this person any longer. I just can not take it anymore" What you are really saying is "I have come to the end of my flesh!" That's good! Now let your spirit take over! Pray, Father, I'm sorry, I have been trying to do this in my own strength, that is why I am frustrated and angry. Forgive me and live your life through me. Help me to walk in the spirit so I will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Then start meditating on who you are in Christ.

That is renewing your mind and releasing the supernatural life of God out of your spirit into your soul and body. When your physical mind comes into agreement with your spiritual mind, you can literally begin to forgive, hope, endure and believe in things that you could not have done by your natural self. In your flesh, you cannot overcome, turn the other cheek or forgive someone who have done you wrong. That is why Paul said of his flesh, "O wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from this body of death" (Rom. 7:24). In other words, Who will deliver me from this flesh, and the next verse says "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom. 7:25).

The Judgement of God, Part 2.

Would it be unjust for God to send someone to hell who did not have the law or accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior?

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). The law was giving to Moses for Hebrew Israelites not the Gentiles, but surely not everyone has heard the name of Jesus or what he has done for them. What about the people that lived before Abraham. The flood of Noah days destroyed all of human life except eight souls. After Abraham death to when Moses was born was about 250 years later.

In Genesis 15:13 Abraham’s descendants was enslaved. The Lord said to him, "Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. So, did all these people die and go to hell? Does the Bible give us any information about what some of these people may had to face as judgement for their life activity to God? From Adam to Abraham, to Moses receiving the law altogether was about 2150 years. They were not saved and could not be saved because Jesus had not come to give his life for them. God does not love some people more than others.

Romans 2:9-16 explains that every one who does what is wrong will have much trouble and a hard times. All those who do not know the law given to Moses and did what was wrong will die, but they will not be judged by the law. All those who know the law and did what was wrong will be judged by the law. God does not say people are good because they have heard the law, but people who obey the law. Some people do not have the law but they do what the law says because their own hearts tell them to. They have a law of their own, even though they do not know the law, they show that the law is written in their hearts. They know what is right to do and what is wrong to do, their own thoughts or consciences tell them they have done what is wrong or what is right.

Now that's true love for God in his infinite wisdom to have a backup plan to cover all mankind long before Jesus became our savior. God knew that every person would not hear or have heard his inspired word giving by the prophets. God gave man a free will to do or not do and with this he can now judge them fairly, that does not apply to people that have heard or refuse to hear, however, some people will try to replace the Word of God for some self inspiring intellectual speeches but the word tells us that “there is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12, Amplified Bible).

For us that have heard the Word of God, Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6), not the preacher, teacher, church or religious organization. God has given us the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into all truth (John 16:13).

Speak To Your Mountain

"Whosoever shall says to this mountain, Be thou removed" (Mark 11:23).

Most Christian are busy talking to God about their mountain instead of talking to their mountain about God. The mountain is your problem, or whatever you want to see changed in your life. Speak to it!

Many people think that is crazy, but Jesus spoke to the fig tree. In fact the Word says that He answered it (Mark 11:14). You can not answer something unless it's been talking to you first. Don't say, "O Lord, I'm sick, please take this disease from me or please remove this debt". That is a violation of what this scripture is telling you to do. You are talking to God about your mountain when you should be talking to your mountain about God. Speak to the sickness, talk to your bills, address your depression, or whatever the problem is. Tell it that God has already set you free. Then, command it to leave you alone, in Jesus name!
