HOW FIT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? I MEAN HOW FIT ARE WE FOR THE TIMES AHEAD? OR HOW MUCH OF OUR LIFE IS WORTH POURING INTO OUR KIDS AND FUTURE GENERATIONS?
Times like these are calling for us to get fit. I mean really FIT. I mean spirit, soul, and body.
1st Level Living: THE PHYSICAL
Traditionally we are consciously educated about our physical being. At the very least everyone must have a routine of balanced eating, including vegetables and fruits, getting enough exercise, drinking enough water, and getting sufficient rest. With this basic formula, we can go from the natural realm to the emotional realm and then the spiritual realm.
For it is from the spiritual realm that life flows. From where the laws that govern our whole being flow.
“Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what I am going to say before I even say it. You both precede and follow me and place your hand of blessing on my head…
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion! You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book! Psalm 139
2nd Level Living: EMOTIONALLY FIT - TIMES WILL KEEP TURNING FROM GRAY TO DARK AS WE APPROACH THE CHANGE OF KINGDOMS.
And that will require that we have a healthy mind and be emotionally fit.
That will require that we transform our thinking, which for centuries has been bombarded with twisted knowledge from the kingdom of darkness, negative and self-destructive lies, to the point that many are blinded to the truth.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them”. 2 Corinthians 4:4
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
TRAIN YOUR MIND TO BELIEVE GOD’S WORD. HIS THOUGHTS WILL BECOME YOURS. HIGHER AND DEEPER TILL GOD’S WORD BECOMES THE REAL SELF.
“Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” Luke 4:4
“He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Trust in the Lord God always, for in the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3-4
“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness”. James 3:17-18
3rd Level Living: THE SPIRITUAL LIFE
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life…”1 Timothy 6:12
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12
FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH REQUIRES TO FIGHT FROM THE THIRD LEVEL. THE SPIRITUAL LEVEL. NOT THE PHYSICAL LEVEL, NOT THE EMOTIONAL LEVEL, BUT THE SPIRITUAL LEVEL!
For we naturally love to do evil things that are just the opposite from the things that the Holy Spirit tells us to do; and the good things we want to do when the Spirit has his way with us are just the opposite of our natural desires. These two forces within us are constantly fighting each other to win control over us, and our wishes are never free from their pressures.
FAITH BECOMES NATURAL WHEN LIVING IN THE THIRD LEVEL, THE KINGDOM OF LIGHT!
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:” Colossians 1:12-13
WE MUST MOVE INTO THE LIMITLESS DIMENSION. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS HERE! IN YOUR HEART!
CHRISTIANS MUST LIVE UNDER A DIFFERENT LAW. THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2
“And I have given you authority over all the power of the Enemy, and to walk among serpents and scorpions and to crush them. Nothing shall injure you! Luke 10:19
This is a perfect time to become a shelter to our neighbors, friends, co-workers, and unbelieving relatives. Let’s invite them to feel the peace, the joy, the love and the power of our Mighty Savior, Jesus of Nazareth!
IS BY LIVING IN THE SPIRIT, WHERE THE LAW OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS OVERIDES THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. THAT IS THE RALM WHERE WE EXPAND THE KINGDOM EFFORTLESS, LIMITLESS!
THERE IS NOT FEAR, THERE IS NOT RACISM IN GOD’S KINGDOM. MOVE INTO YOUR HEART!
Lord, I do believe that Jesus of Nazareth took my place in the Cross. Lord, I am sorry for all my sins, please forgive me. I believe Jesus was raised on the third day for my justification. Jesus, I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Your Holy blood cleanses me right now and God gives me a new heart and eternal life. Now my name is written in the book of life, guaranteed by the following written law:
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 10:9-10
