Today's message is well with. So today's message is called stadium the world would know my three steps to victory. And last week, stop believing lies. This one is stay in the word I want you to think about. Why would a person a believer ever walk away from the father because we've all done. Maybe it was a few years for some of you may be. It was a few months maybe a few weeks maybe a few days, may be a few minutes so don't be judgmental of someone who's walked away for a few years you so I never done that.
We've done it for a few minutes. I guarantee so the reason we do is because were three parts. I know that doesn't sound like that's an amazing revelation, but were three parts, spirit, soul and body body. We are a trichotomous, not a dichotomy. There are just a few that say were dichotomy will have two parts, but it's not true biblically. It's very easy to show were three parts of matter fact Jesus when he was on this earth.
His body with the two Scripture says you will not leave his soul in Hades or she uses the Old Testament as babies, which is the place of the weighting of the bad so his soul. During those three days with the Hades and then on the cross he said in, into thy hands I commit my spirit.
Save and save the three body soul and spirit of Genesis 2, when God created man you'll see all three in one verse, verse seven and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground he'd inform a soul or spirit of the dust of Ronnie formed his body from dust your body came from to dust your bodyworker reflects his body and breathes in their snuffles the breath of life. This is the word for spirit spirit so there he became, spirit, and a man became a living soul. Since I am so spirit soul and body. Everyone get that God created our spirits to relate to him, he created our souls to relate to ACM and his creation his creation including other human beings as well. Plants, animals, trees, all the things knowing that we relate to his creation. We can climb a mountain we could swim in the ocean and you created our bodies to relate to his creation. And that's why was.
That's where I was going when we can swim in the ocean, melt some ISO our bodies to gradients relate to his creation are spiritually created to relate to ACM our souls he created to relate to him and his creation. Here's the problem. When Adam and Eve die when they see an apartment when they see and their spirits died. If you remember, God said if you eat that you will die.
Their bodies didn't die not yet set in, and eventually they died with their bodies and died immediately. Their souls didn't die because he heard items that I heard you walk in the garden and I was afraid. That's an emotion and sunlight of choice in my will to high because I thought that would be the best thing that it seems I is mine willing motion for us to work but it spirit guide, because God said you week that Gilda what.their spirits.Ephesians 2 says we were dad in our trespasses and sins, and he made us alive when we came to Christ Jesus said we quote this verse but we kinda missed the first part Jesus set outcome that might have life and that you might have it more abundantly grateful but abundant life to listen what he actually said I've come that you might have life. You're not even alive without me your existing but you're not alive commitment of life, but Ariel finally saw our spirits died. So the problem is that Adam and Eve learned to relate to God only. Without their spirits only by what they could reason in their own minds what they wanted and what they felt was best mind will and emotions mind is what we think will what we desire emotions but we fail mind what we think remote will what we desire or want, and emotions. What we feel.
This is why it is so this is why Christians have problems because we get into a situation and we make a decision based on what we think what we won't and what we feel, say something very strongly. I don't care what you think what you want or what you feel.
I care what God wants. What God says what God thinks and what God feels God and that's the only way to make the right decision is to find out what the word says about what you will decide so you when you make a soulless decision. It's selfish until your soul matures you need to make a spiritual decision. So here's the problem here is point number one.
The soul is selfish. The soul is selfish might affect the soul please self soulless selfish soul years selfish and we came in this world with her dad. Spirit. So for years.
We related the God I think about this with our minds. Only our minds that we still could use her mind or remember where we need to renew our minds.
When you have the mind of Christ. We need to convert our souls in the Bible says, which again your mine willing motion but we come in thinking. Think about how many people when they're trying to figure out God and they're not saved yet. They have a dead spirit help all they can get all these different religious sects how screwed up they can get because they're only relating to God by what their own intellect can figure out their own minds. So Melissa got there with them at the soul is selfish but we got mine will emotions. I don't have time to cover the other two but I'll just go to do a little study own mind, let me tell you little bit about your mine, and then I want to tell your spiritual truth is going to help you a lot so your mind is the best computer possible on this earth today and I will never never ever invented computer better than the human mind is when you talk to scientists who actually understand the mind, they'll clarify that they'll they will back up what I'm saying you minds unbelievable.
Your mind knows everything that you ever see heard or experienced and is categorized everything. If only this is how you can meet someone and not like him immediately. You been restaurant with your wife and your walking out and she said no honey went like this is Susie member Susie I work out with Suzette told you about Susie and course you have the answer managed all yes I remember you don't have a point but you say all Chaoyang member Susie and Susie says is my husband Billy said hi Bill how are you block out restaurant get in the car and say what I like it got to so we just met you don't even know all you know them. I noticed I because you're my dad and I ever met anyone like this. Yes, you meant 364 people who are like this new Matthew or similar you've met 47 people who are very similar in unit three are almost identical and one of them pulled your short standing gym class in seventh grade I knew I said I guess you don't know and all I got a whole follow him. I know exactly what he's like, I don't follow me that that's how brilliant is okay to say so why are you telling me this is one because when you come against up against the problem causes you stress or tension, your mind says I've ever experienced this before in your mind tells you how to respond. This is called in the Bible, a stronghold, this is how stronghold works if you if you have a stronghold not own a minute but just you know I built out loud, but just yourself stronghold of lust or stronghold of anger or stronghold of pride or insecurity or inferiority of you have some addiction.
This is exactly how addiction works exactly scientists will agree with this, they just might. A lesser Christian that on insane spiritual part this, what have you come here and you see an experience that is similar to some event for and your mind says I need a drink. I need a drink to handle this because this out every time I come to suffice for. I've had have a drink the following. So that's why we reap the listen remember the title of the message stay in work because what happens is after a while, your mind says elaborate strength really like this for your mind suggests I have in your mind will save you because you're renewing my mind says I get word I need to call someone for prayer so you totally begin to change the way you deal with the straw you are, you'll follow me. This is really good if you don't know good preaching job is helping. This is the way a stronghold work this on three easy steps to victory number one stop believe the lies is what else I sensed a word start believing the truth start believing what God says about you know what someone else says about you know what successful number on the soul is selfish is number two.
The soul must submit to the spirit, the soul must submit to the spirit now. Romans nine remember everything in the Old Testament happened in the natural but it's a spiritual truth for us in the mood and many times in the New Testament bill quoting Old Testament Scripture, and they'll tell us the spiritual truth of Romans that is telling us one of the spiritual prudishness Old Testament Scripture narrative Romans nine verse 12 says it was said to her.
This is speaking to Rebecca about Jacob and Esau that went away. The older shall serve young this I could give you several examples of this.
This is actually a scriptural principle, the older silver serve young now for those of you who are the older sibling of this not a natural principal, I don't. And for those your younger don't say I knew he should be serving me that this has nothing to do with natural okay brothers and sisters in this is a spiritual principle and what is it me me tell you there there about four applications of it spiritually. But let me tell you one of the soul and the spirit came when you were conceived in your mother's would your soul came alive and then you're born you go through life and the end for me. I got saved in 19 now I know we are born. Remember you're born with the dead spirit your spirits dad in trespasses. It that's about spirits that but you come to Christ.
Your spirit is made alive.
So I got saved in 19 I was almost 20. So for 20 years I lived with my soul in charge I did what I thought was best. I did what I wanted to do and I did what I felt I was best for me but when I was almost 20. My spirit came alive in my spirit said to my soul. I'm in charge now in my soul being the kind and gracious and humble person. The years said sure. Or do you think that's what happened to my soul. Sad not notify my soul's been fighting ever since. But the more I get this word receive the engrafted word of God. James says, which is able to say network savings to my cold shoulders as all the Scriptures about converting your souls doesn't mean to supplement your eternal salvation is still not converting changing changing your soul letting your soul grow up so important for us to understand this. David called to his soul remembered Solomon himself, so he talked himself one crazy.
He talked himself. He told his soul to not be discouraged. He told his soul to bless God he told his soul to be quite let me read you one of in Psalm 131 verse two. Surely I have calm and quiet.
Did my soul like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within so I said I told my soul to calm down and be quiet, but my soul is like a weaned child a week job, but how do we chart when you take them off the milk and you put them on solid food right once again the Bible is so perfect. First Corinthians 3 verse one and I'd rather he could not speak to you as spiritual spiritual people, but as to carnal, as to babes are babies in Christ. I've had to feed you with milk and not solid food, he became verse by verse 12 for though by now. By this time you ought to be teachers, but you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God and you come to the mill and not solid food. He goes on to talk about those who need milk and set solid food or not of another mature you got grow up, got a got take your soul off a bill picture your soul only solid food that I just say something, it is important where you go to church is important that whoever's preaching years preaching the Bible and not good opinions. Good opinions don't help. Good news else what the Bible says is what helps one bad word of God. That's what helps you date so now why does a child ever thought about this he says is like a weaned child.
What does a child bigger, let's say that.
What does a child do when you try to wean the child cries and throws a fit right what you think you sold us cries and throws a fit. But why ever thought about that. Why does a child cry and trophy every friend we jump in which I might actually maybe never thought because he thinks you're trying to look. You're taking away the only food sources. Evernote right he doesn't know there's another food source. Three.
Thank you, John Philip listen to me though in the case of the soul. He's right you are trying to kill when we read it to you. Here's .3 in the knowledge of Scripture .3 the soul must die and also inscriptions meant. But here's what I mean by this. Your selfish thoughts your selfish desires and your selfish emotions, feelings need to die. They need that you need to die to self, that's only way you're going to have victory.
Yet God himself. What what you think and what you feel and what you won't doesn't matter, but here's what I was showing about how the Bible plays the part in this can almost read your very famous Scripture. Everybody knows but hardly anybody knows the next verse, Hebrews 4, verse 12 for the word of God is living and powerful. Everything is first, sharper than any two-edged sword, watch this piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner and would you be but would you like see the soul, the mind will and emotions. What of the thoughts that's the mind. The MTX that's wheel of the heart that's emotions. The heart is the seat of the emotions and I love you with all my heart I feel this way, how do you feel in your heart about this is where your babies eyes were your most directly mind will and emotions got them up now verse 13 mostly white note, I've never even read it arts I read I read right over. But it's the key verse 13 and so the thought is continuing.
There is no creature hidden from his site, but all things are naked and open remember word open to the eyes that he him to whom we must give account. Now I II know that that didn't.
I don't think that probably meant anything. As to how that fits in verse 12, the word of God is like a sword that the divide between the soul and spirit among take that fits in okay this word open to great work in English. Again we have a very limited language compared to break the and we don't have words to translate what I really should the waiting room should be translated many times so the word open is a Greek word Frankie lead so you ready for this, show you the exact Strong's exhaustive concordance definition of the trachea elites so the word trach elites ready to regulate so as to band back the neck of the victim to be slight to expose the goblet of a victim for Tillich Galante something God has big plans for your soul. That's what he would love to do with your unredeemed thoughts, your unredeemed desires and your unredeemed feelings. He'd love to kill and replace them with what he thinks about you what he wants for your life and how he feels about you they would like he doesn't want to kill you. He wants to kill what's killing it doesn't want to kill you. He wants to kill what's killing you your soulless selfish thoughts, your soulless selfish desires and your soulless selfish feelings he will skill and he will think about this. He would love for you to think about herself the way he thinks about he would love for you to know what he wants and desires for your life, and he would love for you to know how he feels about you, rather than what the devil tells you that he feels about you.
We would love for you to know, so he wants that he will so it you came to church or some good news.strong. Trying to kill your old self and its author. Scripture also not been crucified with Christ among perspective that I heard a pastor say one time Christ went to the cross so you wouldn't have to. That's not bad not bad would go, but eternal salvation, but there's Scripture we need to reconcile that is Jesus.Matthew 16 verse 24 Jesus said to the disciples. If anyone desires to come after me, living by himself and take up his cross and follow me just what you have across the you have across the and then Jesus goes further this truth in Luke Luke 923 then he said them all. If anyone desires to match made limited by himself and take up his cross daily. Why just say the word daily care. I just don't want judges while Bell now wants and said Jesus yes and go to heaven.
But if you want to live in overcoming why you got to crucify the flesh every day event comes across everyday so it's the word stay in the work, but so one morning I was reading the word normal practice for me and I was a little short on time but I will try to release one chapter day. I like to read where you read to the problem here so it's so many chapters in the summoning the old and then sometimes the Psalms and Proverbs more. But as I was the woman I have a thing. I will release one chapter day.
So what I have but I was in a hurry so I can read quickly. Okay so I read the chapter close that my laptop started leave and the Lord said to me, I what did you just read because you don't have a clue what you trip us in the Lord said son and let listen the whole statement. Okay, he said.
I'm not asking just read the word everyday. I'm asking you let the word review. I actually will speak now you know and am at the end of every message I say what's the Holy Spirit same view this message right thing when you read the Bible.
I'm giving you another question you should say what's the Holy Spirit saying to me through this past and if you want to walk in victory. You have to stop believing lies stated have to take a moment to think about what pastor average and listen to with the Holy Spirit.
