KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”.
Our key scripture simply means, to be ruled by one’s mind based on the physical senses is death. But to be ruled by the word of God is life and peace. God is life and the giver of life. Anything man does without Him is death.
There are the two main divides, rules or sources of influence in this world, they are death and life.. The Bible says those who are ruled by the things they see, feel, taste, touch and smell are dead. The truth is that life is spiritual. The greatest deception that has captured our world is the thinking that everything is physical. Science has become the final appeal and the ultimate answer to almost everything that goes on. This is the worst lie that the so called wise of this world has bought with their lives and swallowed. There is a personality behind the scenes who pushes the agenda that everything is natural and physical. This is how the Bible talks about Him. Ephesians 2:2 “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience”:
There is a prince of the power of the air who is a spirit that works in the children of disobedience.(Rev. 12:9)
Our key scripture says those who follow His path, are dead.. No matter what men may achieve outside God’s influence they cannot have and know PEACE in their life.
Some Christians are tempted to go that way, they are ruled by their natural senses. It is corruption and death, and they are bound to fail.
Satan becomes your Lord if the word is not your master
Those who give themselves over to be controlled by the word of God are said to have escaped this corruption in the world. They actually assume a supernatural nature, called the divine nature. They become divine beings. 2nd Peter 1:4 “whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (Lust simply means being controlled by the senses or to be unbelieving.)
Dear child of God turn from the path of death and satanic control to a world of true liberty and power in the Holy Ghost.
Without God’s word, man gropes in total darkness. God’s word in my soul is my life and my light. I cannot turn away from the blessings of walking in the word to live after the flesh.
Psalms 82:5-6 ” They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High”.
Proverbs 4:18-19 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble”.
