The Spirit of God has always spoken to the person from the very beginning, since the person was created. From the very beginning, the Spirit of God was OUTSIDE of the person because the person chose to live on his own. Only a few individuals in the Old Testament had the Spirit of God INSIDE of them. The prophets spoke of things beyond the law, because the Spirit in them was above the law. What was the difference between the people who understood from the outside – versus those who understood from the inside? The teaching of Jesus Christ can be understood from the outside or from the inside. The Word has to be INSIDE of you, it has to become yours! A religious person confuses this and thinks that the law in him is the Spirit of God. In fact today it’s so easy to make the teaching of Jesus Christ the law, making it difficult to discern whether or not it is the Spirit working in the person, or the ability of the soul, the power of the will, the power of the mind.
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16
A person spends his life spinning around in vanity, attempting to make his life better here on earth. But all this chaos and work will not give you eternity. Be careful not to be distracted by this vanity. Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven!
A message came from Above, information came from God Himself – that the person is freed from the old nature, once and for all, through Christ, through His death and resurrection. Who believes that today?
Any person that begins to believe something, begins to tell others what they believe. If a person believes that there is a big sale in a really expensive store and everything is 90% off – what do they do? They run over there, try that faith out, and if it worked – they begin to tell others. If a person says I have faith in something, but they do not act on it or tell others about it – that means that faith is dead, it has no substance, it is just information that is not acted upon, which bears no fruit. Faith is always driven by word, by information that you hear. Once you hear that information, if you believe it, then you will act on it…
