God speaks to the human Spirit. The mind is what relates with God. When God speaks to your Spirit, if you don’t receive the message it makes no difference.
You can forget what God says, but your Spirit doesn’t forget. Your mind has to try to reconnect with the word. When God talks to you it’s both an instruction and an empowerment. When he tells you to do something, he also empowers you to do it.
When God made Adam, he was neither mortal nor immortal.
1 Corinthians 15:39-49. All flesh is not the same. There is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.
40 There are also heavenly bodies’ sun, moon and stars and earthly bodies’ humans, animals, and plants, but the glory and beauty of the heavenly is one kind, and the glory of the earthly is another.
41 There is a glory and beauty of the sun, another glory of the moon, and yet another distinctive glory of the stars; and one star differs from another in glory and brilliance.
42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. The human body that is sown is perishable and mortal, it is raised imperishable and immortal.
43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in strength;
44 it is sown a natural body mortal, suited to earth, it is raised a spiritual body immortal, suited to heaven. As surely as there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body.
45 So it is written in Scripture, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul an individual;” the last Adam Christ, became a life-giving spirit restoring the dead to life.
46 However, the spiritual the immortal life is not first, but the physical the mortal life; then the spiritual.
47 The first man Adam is from the earth, earthy made of dust; the second Man Christ, the Lord is from heaven.
48 As is the earthly man the man of dust, so are those who are of earth; and as is the heavenly Man, so are those who are of heaven.
49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthly the man of dust, we will also bear the image of the heavenly the Man of heaven.
Note This: Jesus did not die for Christians. The Christian was not redeemed. Jesus died for the whole world.
What is the church? The church is the fruit of redemption. We are not the redeemed, we’re the fruit of redemption.
Say “I AM THE FRUIT OF THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT”.
“I AM AN HEIR OF THE COVENANT”.
Son of God means God in Flesh.
In 1 Corinthians 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. The kingdom of God is spiritual, therefore we will inherit it spiritually.
1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Corinthians 15:52. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The body that God gave us is neither mortal nor immortal. But if you’re not born again your body is absolutely mortal. The reason why Christians die is because of the consciousness of death and fear in their spirit.
Hebrew 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Hebrew 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
2 Corinthians 4:8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
2 Corinthians 4:9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
2 Corinthians 4:10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
The most powerful thing about Christianity is your response to the word of God.
I CARRY GOD IN ME
I WALK IN EXCELLENCE
I HAVE THE LIFE OF EXCELLENCE
I HAVE AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT
2 Corinthians 4:11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
“If Christ be in you, though your body is Dead, because of sin: the spirit gives you life because of righteousness”.
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken Vitalize your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Death is an Enemy. It is defeated but not destroyed. The consciousness, Fear of Death is the death of many Christian.
2 Corinthians 4:12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
2 Corinthians 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
2 Corinthians 4:14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
I REFUSE TO BE SICK
2 Corinthians 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
Colossians 3:9 Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old self with its evil practices,
10 and have put on the new [spiritual] self who is being continually renewed in true knowledge in the image of Him who created the new self
1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.
Romans 12:2 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.
Take pride in developing yourself and your environment. Think differently, because you are excellent.
