SPIRITUAL VS CARNAL CHRISTIANS

Spiritual minded Christians versus the carnal minded Christian, they both claim to be Christians, but only one is going to Heaven. The carnal minded Christian has one foot in the church, and the other out, and the foot that’s out is on a wet and slippery road, that will slide them straight to hell.

They fail to realize that,

  • (1) If you love the world, you are an enemy of God (James 4:4).
  • (2) You can’t love the world, the things of the world, and love God (1 John 2:15-16).
  • (3) You can’t serve two masters, it’s impossible to serve them both (Matthew 6:24).
  • (4) A double-minded person is unstable (James 1:8).
  • (5)True Christians are not conformed to this world, but are transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:2).
  • (6) God says, He knows your works, that you are not hot, or cold, just lukewarm, and He has to spew you out (Revelation 3: 15-16).

It’s time to choose who you are going to serve (Luke 16:13). Now the spiritually minded Christians are so Holy, they get on your nerves, but it’s not wrong they are only following what Gods word says, ‘He chose us before the foundation of the world to be Holy, and without blame before Him, in love’ (Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 5:27), and we have to be pure, because Our Father is pure (1 John 3:3). But we can’t be too spiritual minded that we are not earthly good, because we still have to show love and compassion like Jesus did; you still have to love your neighbor as yourself. We got saved from the world, so that we can tell someone how good Jesus is once they accept, believe, and trust Him.

Jesus socialized, with people, but He knew who to hang out with, and where to go and not to go. Jesus went to Zacchaeus’ house not just to eat, but to introduce him to salvation, which led to him repenting (Luke 19:5-10). As a believer you can’t be too spiritually minded that you are not earthly good. “See, then, that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil, wherefore be ye not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). But the wisdom that is from above, is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. If you are comfortable around people who are doing wrong or living a lie, then you better put on the belt of truth, and examine your walk with God, because something is not right. Now if you do not know God or His Son Jesus, whom, He sent to save your soul, go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Trust me, it will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver this message. I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and that you will follow Him, and do His will until He returns in Jesus Name, amen.

UNANSWERED PRAYERS

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” that’s what Hebrews 11:1 tells us. Now who is your faith in? Yourself or God? His will, His ability, and His promises or yours?

Did you know that faith without works is dead (James 2:17).

Doesn’t demonstration beat elaboration, and a man without hope is hopeless. But let me ask you something, when you ask for something, most of the time, don’t you have to wait for it, or you’re one of those, “ It’s now or never people.”

Yes, Numbers 23:19 tells you, ”He does not lie,” and 2 Peter 3:9 tells us, ”He is not slack concerning His promises,” and He did say a few times, ”ask anything in His (Jesus’) name and you will receive it” (Matthew 21:22; John 14:12-14).

So what’s the problem? A few things is the problem:

(1) Did you ask for it in Jesus name? John 16:23-24.

(2) Is it God’s will or yours? James 4:3; Matthew 26:39.

(3) Are you a Christian? If no, how do you expect to get anything from someone you don’t know. Matthew 25:11-12, John 10:14, (sorry that’s God’s word. Read to the end if you want to know Him, it tells you what to do).

(4) Okay, you are a Christian, what type? Hot or Cold? Listen when it comes to God, there is no lukewarm, nor half and half Christians. It’s either you are or you are not. Revelations 3:15-16.

(5) As a Christian, are you walking in righteousness? If not, then you are praying in vain or amiss. How do I know? His word says so, read them all for yourself, Isaiah 59:1-2, 1 Peter 3:12, James 5:16, Psalm 37:25, Matthew 6:33, Psalm 11:7, this is just a few.

(6) You must wait on God. He only works on His schedule or time, not ours (Isaiah 55:8-9).

(7) While waiting, you must not murmur, complain, doubt, be anxious or fearful, and if you have any unrepented sins, known and unknown, ask for forgiveness. Once you ask in faith and not waver, the answer is on the way (James 1:6-8; Hebrews 10:23).

(8) We must cast down all imaginations (past failures, doubts, fears, etc.) that comes against the knowledge or word of God – 2 Corinthians 10:5. Then cast all your cares on God – 1 Peter 5:7. Then go sleep or rest – Hebrews 4:3.

(9) To eliminate all negativity, you must now praise Him, thank Him, read the scriptures, meditate on it, declare it, confess it, hide it in your heart, while confidently waiting, according to 1 John 3:21.

(10) I don’t care who you are, if you are not right with God you are not getting anything you ask for. Do you want to get right with him or know Him, go to the top of this blog, click the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

I thank God, Our Heavenly Father, for the privilege of sharing this message with you. I pray that He will guide you in His will and ways. To God be the honor, praise, and glory, now, and forever in Jesus Name. Amen.
