3-17-2012 SUBJECT - THE CARNAL MIND


ROMANS 8: 5-8 = 

(5) FOR THEY THAT ARE AFTER THE FLESH (CARNAL), DO MIND THE THINGS OF THE FLESH; BUT THEY THAT ARE AFTER THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE THINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

(6) FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED, IS DEATH; BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED, IS LIFE AND PEACE.

(7) BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND, IS ENMITY (HATRED)  AGAINST GOD:  FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.

(8) SO THEN, THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH (CARNAL=HUMAN NATURE), CANNOT PLEASE GOD.


"REMARKS" 

THIS ISSUE OF BEING BORN AGAIN, MEANING LIVING BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEING NOT BORN AGAIN, MEANING CARNAL, NEVER CHANGED FROM THE NATURAL STATE, TO THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF MIND, THE BORN AGAIN STATE OF MIND, IS WHY, THERE ARE 2 KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, NO GRAY AREA.

1 JOHN 10 = IN THIS, THE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE REVEALED(BORN AGAIN=MIND OF CHRIST) AND THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL:(CARNAL MIND=HUMAN NATURE). 

THE CHURCH OF TODAY, IS A BODY OF MIXED INDIVIDUALS, SOME BORN AGAIN AND SOME NOT. THE BORN AGAIN BELIEVER, IS SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T ALLOW THE LUST OF THE EYES AND THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE, TO HAVE ANY POWER OVER THEM, THEY ARE CALLED THE OVERCOMERS, LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD. 

THOSE NOT BORN AGAIN, ALLOW THE LUST OF THE EYES AND THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE,  TO RULE THEIR LIVES, WITHOUT ANY POWER TO OVERCOME THESE ENEMIES OF THE  CARNAL MAN.

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! 

HE WHO SAVES HIS LIFE(CARNAL WAYS OF MAN) WILL LOSE IT, ETERNALLY AND HE WHO LOSES HIS LIFE( THE BORN AGAIN MAN), WILL FIND IT, ETERNAL LIFE!
