Set your mind on God's will

The mind and heart of the church is now firmly set on earthly things. Her new gods are the stomach, sexual sin, false prophets, money, unholy desires and wickedness !

Many christians have set their hearts on self indulgence and sensual gratification, consequently forsaking the will of God. Meanwhile, the fear of God has been thrown out of the window ! They claim to be christians but by their actions deny, disown and renounce THE LIVING GOD. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality.

If this is you I am writing about, then today you must choose wether to continue walking in that realm of the flesh which leads to death or to be renewed and begin walking in the realm of the Holy Spirit, which leads to eternal life with Jesus.

It is written and remains written in Romans 8:5-16 (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition),

5 For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.

6 Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].

7 [That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God's Law; indeed it cannot.

8 So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.

9 But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God].
10 But if Christ lives in you, [then although] your [natural] body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the spirit is alive because of [the] righteousness [that He imputes to you].

11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature], to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh.

13 For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever.

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!

16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.'

Therefore dear friend, you have a choice to make today. If you choose to continue in the realm of the flesh then continue. But if you want to be renewed and LIVE, then let us return to JESUS in REPENTANCE right away and ask him to give us the HOLY SPIRIT.

Those who want, say

"Dear Jesus, My Lord and King. I repent of walking in the realm of the flesh. I repent of sensual gratification and self indulgence. I repent of forsaking the will of God. I repent of sexual sin. I repent of lies. I repent of dabbling in the occult. I repent of doing the will of satan. Please forgive me LORD Jesus. Come into my heart and be my LORD AND SAVIOUR. Drive out all impure spirits in me. Send me your Holy Spirit and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Teach me to live in accordance with the will of God. Please write and keep my name in the Book of Life of the Lamb of God and remember me when you establish your Kingdom. Today I receive you and I am born again. Amen."

If you have REPENTED in the above prayer, you have now crossed over from death to ETERNAL LIFE WITH JESUS. You have now received the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, THE HOLY SPIRIT. This means you have an OBLIGATION to do the will of God as it is written in 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8,

"3 It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, 5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. 7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit."

Remember that if you REJECT this instruction, you have REJECTED GOD who gives you HIS HOLY SPIRIT.


Let me pray for you.

"LORD JESUS, PRECIOUS FATHER IN HEAVEN, MIGHTY Holy Spirit, please help your people who have repented here and renewed their salvation. Baptise them AND KEEP them in your HOLY SPIRIT. Help those who were not baptised correctly in water to be baptised the way John baptised. Help those who have never received water baptism. Write their names in the Book of Life. Teach them to do your will. Protect them from unclean spirits and the seductions of demons. Bless their homes, their families. If any lack any good thing, LORD JESUS please provide their needs according to your will. I commit them into your hands in the mighty name of JESUS. Amen."

REMEMBER Philippians 3:18-21
"18 For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body."

Here is your Blessing.
"LORD JESUS, bless all who have repented with GREAT FAITH that we may all see the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in your KINGDOM. So be it, in KING JESUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN. "
