Conquering the will of the flesh
Updated: Mar 13, 2020
The most profound prophetic question was asked of Jeremiah. The Lord asked him, “Look Jeremiah, what do you see?” This is the most fundamental question that one must answer. (Jeremiah 1:11-12 11Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. 12Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.)
Whenever you see something, the Lord has got to confirm that you have seen well. When something is presented to you, do you ask the Lord what is true? You are that thing that God said of you and it is that thing that will bring itself out.
When you are pressed, what is it that comes out of you? It doesn’t matter what you convince yourself of. What comes out of you when you are squeezed for an answer about you is what has been within you all along. The truth that is always embedded in you is the truth that will always come out. You will always utter who you are. When you are not clothed with this glory of truth, any lie can stand. You have got to know that for a lie to be a lie, it must be persuasive. If many people were not in lack, the devil would not lie to you with lack but because he can produce evidence of the lie - of lack; he makes it credible. If you are not clothed with truth, loving-kindness, favour and grace, that lie cannot be sieved. You don’t have a safety net to counter a spiritual lie if you lack kindness, love, patience, truth, and favour. You don’t have a safety net because your spirit only counters lies with the safety net of truth which you buckle yourself in with the fruits of love, patience and kindness. The glory of Christ that covers you is full of favour, love, patience and kindness.
A child of God should come to the knowledge that he is no longer known by the flesh. Scripture says that now we know no man after the flesh. 2 Corinthians 5:16 (KJV) Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.
The strength of your inner man is something you can train to develop where someone can tell you something that is supposed to shake you and mess you up to the core but when it lands, you don’t feel any shaking inside. There is a place of your inner man where something can be around you but not in you. When you know that this is not my level or territory no matter what is happening around me; whatever they say I hear it but it is not part of me, I don’t feel it inside me. If you are living in the atmosphere of faith, of the spirit and of dominion, there are certain things you have got to be very careful to not listen to. It is very important how your heart is set to choose to see certain things. You have to be careful with something that holds your emotions. The things that grab your emotions actually put you in bondage. You can be empathic but without canonizing the situation. There are things that draw you in and once they draw you in, that is the end; before you know it, you begin falling from grace.
The longer you spend in the house of God, the quicker it is for you to come to the revelation that you are beyond ethnicity. Do not recognize your existence by way of, “I belong to this tribe” or “I belong to this clan”. If things like ethnicity are still your glory then you are yet to realize that you are much higher than what you physically glory in. What you physically glory in has a limit. If the devil had oppressed your family even before your existence, the Lord is setting you apart and He says, from you all this oppression ceases. He says that you are an example. Through you, God wants to bless someone, to start something new. The Lord has given you dominance and control over the tent of the fallen nature. It is the revelation of who you are in this realm that begins to lift you up above all sicknesses. When they tell you that people in your family have been dying of a certain disease by 40 years, you are no longer of that falsehood. You have been set apart from being a victim of bloods or a victim of the will of the flesh. This revelation lifts you up and brings you out of certain classes around you. The power of salvation comes to set you free from the bondages of bloods and the bondages of the will of the flesh.
When you look at your life through His eyes, you are not aware of your life ending up miserable, that manner of life is not yours. In your version, you are more than a conqueror. You are increasing in Him. You are moving from one level of glory to another level of glory in Him. That is them that see themselves born of God - of the spirit not of the flesh.
