To Be Carnally Minded Is Death

The Bible says, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” – Romans 8:6

People are either dead like Saul’s army or alive like David’s. Those that are dead aren’t pleasing God and will never get to Heaven. “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” – Romans 8:7-8

The Bible says that even Jesus didn’t please himself when he was here. “For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: ‘The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.’ ” – Romans 15:3

Sin is pleasant to the eyes, so you can’t trust your eyes or your ears unless you have a holy, blood heart. The Lord said people were blind and deaf to his teachings because they wanted to be. “For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing and their eyes they have closed, lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their hearts, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” – Matthew 13:15

The antichrist’s spirit of disobedience is everywhere in the world today. Clouds of disobedience hang over the earth like clouds of thick smoke. It’s a deadly hour without the Lord; but when you live under his wings, you trust in Him, “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust; his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” – Psalm 91:4

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28.  All things can’t work together for your good until you answer the call according to his purpose.

They still tell me “I am doing my best”, but are you doing the Lord’s best? When God chooses a person for Heaven that’s the holiest calling of all! He chooses them to become a member of the family of God and to have divine blood in their soul so they will live forever. He destroys every particle of death.

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” – 1 Corinthians 15:55. The blood takes away the sting of death to the point that the Lord many times referred to it as sleep because he had conquered it when he brought divine life.

We must be a separate people, and Matthew tells us from whom we’re to separate. “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:  I come not to serve peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at varience against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law and a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father and mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” – Matthew 10:34-39

Jesus said that he came to separate, but some of you refuse to do it. You‘ll listen to your family complain, bicker and bad-mouth God and his ministry. You’ll allow them to drag you out of services and hinder you from doing what the Lord has called you to do. This type of compromise won’t bring peace; it will only destroy any peace that you still have. I don’t want to be me. I want to do the whole will of God and bring in the lost no matter what the cost!

I love you my Jesus
Amen!
