We always have a choice. We are not always FREE to make the highest and best choice. We may want to make the right choice but find ourselves making the wrong choice over and over again. This is human nature apart from God; separated from God we make choices from bondage to sin and bondage to death. The asleep human just thinks it is the “way I am” and we can’t change who we are. Those awake in Christ know only the Holy Spirit and fire of God can transform us spirit and soul and body.
Have you ever realized that sin is a consciousness and could be described as a god of this world or the spirit of this world. It is at war with our innermost being that is spirit. We get sick and tired as the war battles between two natures: the one we were created to be and the one we have been conditioned by the world system to think or feel we are. The world’s wisdom says the “dog” we feed is the one who will live; God’s Wisdom from Above says we have to DIE to the old nature to be BORN of God of water AND Spirit with a new divine nature. “His divine power has granted to us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape the corruption in the world, and BECOME PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE” 2 Peter 1:3-4
On the other hand, sin is a foreign god living in those who have the spirit of the world; the fruit is duality that leads to death. Instruments of satan bear fruit for satan: mixed darkness and light, evil and good, lies and truth. The “I” or mind is separated from the body; the inmost spirit is separated from the soul and body. You remember all that is wrong instead of remembering God. Where sin reigns in a body there are two natures fighting (a kingdom divided falls) stealing peace, robbing you of energy, killing love and joy. Those with a double-mind receive nothing from God (James 1:7-8).
“Sin reigns in death” Romans 5:21
“Now if you do what you do not want to do, it is NOT I who does it but sin that dwells in you…evil lies close AT HAND” Romans 7:20, 21
“Those who RECEIVE the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness REIGN IN LIFE through the one man Jesus Christ” Romans 5:17
Jesus brought the kingdom of God AT HAND so we can repent, change our mind from double-minded or double-natured to Christ nature that is one with God. With Christ, it is no longer I (sin consciousness) that lives, but CHRIST WHO LIVES IN ME (Galatians 2:20). When we are born anew from Above, of God, of water and Spirit, it is the consciousness of God that gives me new Life. We DIE in water baptism into death, so that as Christ was RAISED from the dead BY THE GLORY OF THE FATHER, we too might walk in NEWNESS OF LIFE (Romans 6:4) in the glory (Presence of God).
We unite with Jesus in his death, to unite with Christ in his resurrection, ascension and glorification to be ONE SPIRIT with God!!!!!! Thank you Abba! Father! Our spirit and soul and body can REST in God as the Holy Spirit moves us in the Will of God!
We were originally made in the image and likeness of God and until we are born again OF God, we will be in conflict, tension, dissatisfaction, unfulfilled, not knowing our true purpose, meaning and calling. We will blame God, blame others, blame ourself, blame circumstances, blame the past, blame the color of our skin, blame our religion, blame our ________ (fill in the blank with all the external things we blame) while the TRUTH is the ONLY THING WRONG is not knowing God and not knowing who we are in God; our true identity and what we were created to be and do out of BEING.
Stop blaming anything external for what is wrong in the world and get reconciled with the Holy One who created you to be the image and likeness of God. Christ Jesus is The Way to the Father to receive Sonship and be reworked by the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire to TRANSFORM, TRANSFIGURE and REFORM into the image and likeness of the Son to be eternally united with God as a Bride.
Jesus said it was good that he was leaving the earth in physical form so he could send you the Spirit of God to be with you and in you FOREVER. The Holy Spirit and glory fire of God is ALL YOU NEED NOW and FOREVER to live Life to Life Abundant, glory to glory!
“The thief comes ONLY to steal and kill and destroy; I come that you may have life, and have it abundantly” ~Jesus The Christ
Jesus presents us as a spotless bride in the glory; no one can take off your robe of righteousness or new white-light wedding garment of the Spirit of God when you give ALL of you to receive ALL of Christ Jesus to KNOW who God is, what he did for you, and who you are in Christ now and forever!
Choice in the world system leads to death; choice in God leads to life and life abundant!
