People of God,
We HAVE TO sharpen our spiritual mind by spending time with God and in HIS word. Carnality is running rampant in the house of God and in our spirit. We have now taken to calling bad good and good rigid. We don't believe we must be covered, so we are letting everything show. We are allowing the seed of carnal thoughts to become carnal actions. We are not standing against the world and its ideas; we are sitting and becoming one with the notions. How can we teach people how to honor our God, if we don't see the need to honor him ourselves? How can the lively stones lead people out OF the world, when some of us are being lead out TO the world? This is the carnal mind (the static) that is blocking the true message from God which says:
Sometimes we need a reminder, ALL the glitters (ideas) of the world IS NOT gold (precious and pleasing in the sight of God). We are living in an age where fitting in with the things of the world is more important than being holy. As I watch television, even the people who claim the title as Christian display the deeds of the world. We must realign ourselves with God and his desire for his Bride. Consider this we are God’s workmanship, we were created for him and not our own use. I heard a message a while back that revealed that God uses “Instruments,” for a long term purpose, and “tools,” are discarded after their purpose is served. If we refuse to allow God to change us and keep our same mindset, we forfeit the ability to be used as an instrument and by default become a tool. As long as there is life in the body you STILL have the time and chance to change your mind. Remember Revelation 3:20 is a plea to God's people: "Behold (G2400 - see), I stand (G2476 - to stand by our near, to stop) at the door (G2374 - passage into [your heart]), and knock: if any man hear (G191 - attend to, consider, understand, perceive the sense of what is said) my voice (G5456 - the sound of uttered words), and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." So what will you choose: Instrument or Tool?
