KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:15 KJV “Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
The Lord’s statement in our key scripture about the Pharisees, reveals why men fail. Life is spiritual. The book of Romans 1:18-24 teaches us how men are fallen into sin. It shows us how man refused to accept God as his ruler and as a result has corrupted his judgement and lives a very sinful life. Man weds animals, and sleeps with them. A man changes his form to become a dog, or any beast he chooses. This view of things is fully endorsed by no mean a body, but the UNITED NATIONS. When men think they are wise by doing these things, they have indeed become very foolish according to the bible. The cause of all these is judging from the senses.
This state of living by the senses is transferred into the house of God as well. Many church folks are ruled by their senses. The five senses, sight, taste, hearing, smell and touch is the main leader of men. These give birth to reasoning from the natural. Instead of being led by the word of God, most church people are led by the flesh.
If a minister of God prays, screaming, O’ God if you do not go with me then I am not going. Or if he cries to God, please be with me. Another person also says, our prayers can hit the sealing of our rooms and come back to us. This is purely a demonstration of a sense ruled children of God. God has said, I am with you always. It is a statement of fact. You need not pray for him to go along with you.
If you are born again then your presence means God is there.
He is always in you. You are only judging from the flesh to think God is somewhere and must be invited to be with you. Matt 28:20.
How can your prayers hit a sealing of a roof? He answers by his power which is at work in you. Eph 3:20 KJV “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”
His power at work in us, is our faith in His word.
This is why it is according to His power at work in us, because various people respond to the word at different levels. This is a revelation knowledge. Stop judging things by the flesh, like Jesus said, and allow His word to have the rule over you.
I am born from above. I have a renewed mind, and so I do not judge anything from the flesh. I am what word says I am, I have what the word says I have, and I can do whatever God’s word says I can do. I am a success for God in Jesus name.
THOUGHT: THE WORLD WAS CREATED BY THE WORD, AND SO, TO BE RULED BY THE WORD IS TO RULE THE WORLD.
