TRUE MINISTRIES CHURCH

I AM SPIRIT
1 JOHN 5:4-8; 2-20 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the worldour faith. So it says whatever is born of God overcomes the world. Thats pretty powerful. Whatever is born of Godwe have a teaching Saved or Born Again and born again is a state of being and how you walkwhether youre walking in the spirit or not. Because you and I have a choice of either walking in that born again state or to walk in a saved state or a lost state. But it says whoever is born of God overcomes the world. In other words, overcomes the natural because the world is a representation of natural. We know that the ruler of the world is satan. He is sending his demonic powers and so forth. The bible says we dont fight flesh and blood. We fight powers of darknessevil spirits. It say whoever is born of God overcomes the world and its important because the world is trying to take me and you out. Lets go on. Verse 5, Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He who came by water and bloodJesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. So the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit are one. One. There is no separation between them. They are one. People try to separate them. You dont. They are together. They are one. They may have different functions but they are still one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. So whoever is born of God overcomes the world. It just explained to us what being born again is. It is expressing the connection between the spiritual realm and the natural realm which is by the Holy Spirit. So if you are born of God, or if you are in the Spirityou will always overcome what the world is trying to come against you with. Always. The devil is trying to get you to the point where you allow the world to overcome you or the desires of the world begin to affect you. Because once that begins to happen, it is an open door to you. Go to verse 18, We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. Now what is he doing? Keeping himself from the world. Now that is if you are walking in that born again stateif youre walking in the spirit. Then you are going to overcome the world. Youre going to overcome temptation. It doesnt mean that you wont be afflicted or that you wont be tempted. It doesnt mean that you wont get angry. It doesnt mean that you wont be offended. It doesnt mean that you wont be hurt or rejected. What it means is that you will overcome those things. Verse 19, We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. Now who is the wicked one? Satan. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is trueWe are what? In him! In Him!! In His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. So if anyone ever asks you if Jesus Christ is God or nottake them to this scripture. It says you and I are in him. So understand something. When you and I are walking in the Spirit we are walking in Him. And we are overcoming the world. And you will not sin. It doesnt mean that you wont be tempted. It doesnt mean you wont make a mistake but you will not allow sin to run your life and you wont practice sin. You will be quick to repent when you blow it. The longer you hold onto it, the more the world begins to overtake you.

JOHN 3:5-6 So we are taking about born again. It says he who is born of Godborn of God. There is a specific thing about being born of God because God is what? Spirit. God is spirit. So if you are born of God, you become spirit. Everybody say: I AM Spirit. I AM Spirit. You may not look like a spirit. You may be used to seeing your face every day and never realize what was what. I AM Spirit. I think thats a very difficult thing that we try to calculate in our minds. I think that is one of the things the devil tries to prevent do is prevent us from knowing who we are. Because we are Spirit. We are Spirit. Verse 5, Jesus answered, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Now who births your spirit? The Holy Spirit. You see where it says capital letters Spirit? That which is born of Spirit is spirit. So the Holy Spirit birthed your spirit. Glory to God. So whoever is born of God or born of Spirit, which is spirit, overcomes the world. LUKE 1:30-35 Two powerful statements here that the angel said. Then the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. Understand something. He said you will conceive in your womb. You will conceive in your womb. Jesus was known as the seed of God. There was a tangible presence of a seed that had been planted into the womb. Conception. The angel said you will conceive and you will call his name Jesus. Now watch. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end. Then Mary said to the angel, How can this be, since I do not know a man? And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. First of all he explained to herthis is what Jesus said, you must be born of water and spirit. First the angel said to her you are going to conceive and call him Jesus. Thats a natural state. Then he said the Holy Spirit is going to come over you and the shadow of the Most High and the power of God is going to come over you and is going to birth this seed and he is going to be known as son. Because the Holy Spirit is what brings relationship. So we see here that this is exactly what Jesus told Nicodemus you must be born again. Born of water and born of the Spirit. Now we know that water represents repentance and so forth. But you have to understand God came into the world as an example for me and you. So he was saying when the seed of Christ comes in you just likeyou still have your natural name. In other words, we call that conception a saved state. When the Holy Spirit comes over and births that seed or your spirit, you become born again, which we call a birthed state or born again state. Now you call him Father. Why? Because you are now spirit. You are now the offspring of God! So are you a spirit now? Amen. And all the promises and everything. Youre spirit! Everyone say: I AM Spirit. Praise God. So now you are called sons and daughters of God because you have been born againyou are spirit! Lets go a little further. JOHN 1:14 We just read that the three witnesses in heaven are what? The Father, the Word and the Spirit and they are one. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. So Jesus was actually the first

-2-

one that was birthed of the Spirit. Thats why he was known as the son of God. We see here that the Father, the Word and the Spirit were one. So the word became flesh or actually you could say that the Spirit became tangible. The Spirit became tangible. You and I are already tangible. We needed to become Spirit. Jesus who is the wordwho is Godwho came from the Spirit because he is Spiritcame into the natural realm. But you and I are from the natural realm now going into the Spirit realm. Thats why we are born again because you and I are spirits. Now we are carrying this heavy suit called flesh. Its like a cocoon sometimes. Waiting to turn into that butterfly. But you are still a spirit no matter what. Jesus was a spirit who became tangible. You and I are tangible who become spirits. The world wants to keep you from acknowledging, accepting and receiving that you are spirit and still wants you to be naturalwants you to still be in the tangible state. It gives a whole other understanding to the born again experience and the importance of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Because that Baptism of the Holy Spirit allows you to walk on the other side because you become a child of God. PROVERBS 20:27 The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his heart. Actually the inner depths of the heart mean the rooms of the belly. Because there are rooms that the Spirit is searching. Why? The Spirit is the lamp of the Lord. That means the Spirit is light. We just needed our light turned on. Its been off for a long time. We needed to get it turned on. ECCLESIASTES 12:6-7 Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. Why? Because God is Spirit. And its God who gave the spirit. You and I were tangible who became spiritnow we are spirit. Our spirit was born again. We actually got a new spirit. The lights got turned on. Now no one can say that the lights are on but nobodys home. They cant say that anymore to you. Tell them the lights are on and the candle is burning! Praise be to God!! 1 CORINTHIANS 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. You have to understandwe are going precept upon precept, line upon linethat you are spiritthat we are spirit. If you are joined to the Lord, you are what? One spirit. I know sometimes we dont feel like it. PSALM 82:6I said, You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. The word god here represents judgeshigh authority. It says we are gods or we are judges and children of the Most High. I think it is a hard thing for us to comprehend that we are actually children of God Almighty because the world is constantly trying to disqualify us as sons of God and children of the Most High. But we are spirits. We are judges or whatever. We are offspringwe are spirits. We are spirits with human experiences. At one time we were just humans looking for experiences. We were humans looking for experiences. Now we are spirits with human experiences. So you cant allow your human experiences to negate or disqualify you as spirit. So we are spirits with human experiences. If you look at all of your experiences and all your trials and tribulationsIf you allow them to just be experiences to you instead of torment to you, you wont get sucked into them. Why? Because we have already started our eternal realm. We

-3-

have already started eternity. So why not walk in eternity and stop walking in our human experiences and start walking in who we are. ROMANS 8:16-17 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of GodSee the Holy Spirit is always assisting you in trying to convince you that you are a child of God. He is witnessing to you. Come on, you are a child of God, you are not of this world! You are just passing through! This is not your home! These are just human experiences. You are not bound by this place any longer. Even though you are capsuled in space and time you are going to be loosed from that soon! You are spirit. You are child of God. You are an offspring of the Anointed One and his anointing. Dont get sucked up in your human experiences. It says that The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirsheirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Why? Because I AM Spirit with human experiences. We are children. Join Heirs. Seeds of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and Jesus. EPHESIANS 2:18-22 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. Why? Because I AM Spirit. We are spirits with human experiences. 2 CORINTHIANS 5:1-5 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heavenWhy? Because you are a spirit. But you are in a tangible house. An earthly house. But because you are spirit, you desire your spiritual house. You groan within you wanting the fullness of your redemption. You actually want to go home. But the devil wants to put fear in us to try and prevent us from accepting who we are in Christ and get us caught up in our human experiences. Because human experiences have impacts on us and bring fear and doubt. If we get caught up in them, they bring separation. Because people who begin to look for human experiences as the fulfillment of desire, usually separate themselves from God eventually. Verse 2 again, For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. Wow. Why? Because the Holy Spirit is constantly trying to convince you and direct you of who you are. A child of the Most High God. A spirit with human experiences. No longer a human searching out experiences but a spirit with human experiences. And you are groaning. You get frustrated sometimes. Sometimes you get sick and tired of getting sick and colds and aches and painsgotta wear glasses and stuff like that. Headaches. Body getting tired. Youre groaning sometimes. Groaning for that new body. Goofy thoughts. All of that stuff. Didnt Jesus say dont worry about what you are going to wear, what you are going to eatwhat kind of job you

-4-

have. Whatever. Those are human experiences. People get caught up in those human experiences. Do you know what they are actually trying to do? Identify themselves with humanity. And they fall short of the glory of God! You dont have to identify yourself with humanity! We comb our hairwe want to be presentablewe want to be respectful. But man sometimes we go beyond that borderline. And we want to identify ourselves with humanity as an experience and thats fulfilling the flesh and its denying the Spirit. The Spirit is going Come on! Youre a child of God!! You are the Kings kid. We want our heavenly body! Too bad you cant cast out flesh. Sometimes we get frustrated at the things we keep repeating. Man I keep doing the same thing overDont get so delightful on that human experience. Dont give it so much glory. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:37-49 And what you sow, you do not sow that body that shall be, but mere grainperhaps wheat or some other grain. But God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body. The seed here we know he is talking about grain and stuff. But if you look in the Spirit he is talking about each seed he gives a body to. The seed here now would mean spirit. We all had a seed first. The seed was known as Christ Jesus. Jesus was the seed. Once you were birthed by the Spirit you became Christs. You became born again. So your seed had to have a body. He is now talking your spirit has a body. So in reality, your spirit is experiencing human experiences. So actually in reality, your spirit is experiencing human experiences. Its learning about a natural realm to take this information for the next creation. Verse 39, All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. So do you. Every one of us are unique. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. Now we understand thatwhy? Because we are now his children. Now we are the Spirits but our first man was of the earth. Our second man is from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. It first had to start off by you being a spirit before your flesh could be removed and a gloried body could come where you would be one spirit. So we are actually looking to be more clothedwe are looking for our heavenly home because we are spirit with human experiences. We are spirits waiting for a spiritual body. Let me explain about the body. Man is made of three parts. Spirit, soul and body. Now the body or the flesh is made up of bones blood and water. The soul is made up of a mind, emotions and will. The Spirit communes with God, has a conscience and is light or what we might call wisdom. Thats what our spirit is now. In fact, when Adam and Eve fell and God no longer spoke to them face to face. He spoke to them through the conscience. That was in their spirit. So you and I, God was speaking to us in our conscience. Now our spirit communes with God or whatever other spirit is out there. Thats where you have to have discernment. But we are

-5-

light and also we have wisdom. Let me explain this. When I was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit in my encounter with the Lord. Even though my soul was not renewed yet, my spirit was communing with God by the Holy Spirit and he was telling me what was right and what was wrong and what to do. Even though my mind was trying to tell me something else, the voice of the Lord was overtaking my carnal mind. So I was able to be led by the Spirit. It was totally different. So your soul which is made up of your mind, your emotions and your will, must be renewed. It is important that it is renewed and it must maintain a constant renewing so it can interpret what the Spirit is saying. If you think about the bodythe flesh part. Now the flesh part has a brain. You know how a computer has a CPU a central processing unit. And what it does is it functions just like a robot. You notice if you tell a robot to do something, it takes a couple seconds for it to do it. But the human body is made so unique by God that once the brain says do this or the voice tells the brain to do this because its operating in the hardware because the flesh is actually hardware--- it does it quickly because there is such a union thereits spiritual soulish but in the natural arena. So you and I at one time were not only just tangible humans looking for a spiritual experience. Now you and I are spirits experiencing a human experience. So if you look at this whole arena of spirit, soul and bodyif you look at the flesh part of usif you look at the flesh part of us as hardware in a computerso there is a CPU unitsomebody still has to operate it. Well if the individual that is operating it, known as the soulif the individual operating it does not know how to operate itwhich he is interpreting instructions on how to operate itit will not function perfectly will it. Its the same thing in the spirit realm. Just like a babyyou can look at a baby who is just born and its having a hard time walking. When people become born again, they have a hard time walking. Because their spirit is so not accustomed to this worldliness now, that its very sensitive and so whats trying to happen is the spirit which is new spiritcleanthe powers of darkness are trying to contaminate it. The devil wants to contaminate your spirit so he is looking for access to it all the time. Because you are a child of the Most High God. He wants to put blemishes on your spirit. Let me express againyour soul is actually a representation of your carnal arena. Thats why it must be renewed. Because you and I have a carnal mind. We have carnal feelings and we make carnal choices. So your mind has thoughts. Your emotions have feelings and your will has a choice. The choice that you and I make is known as the door to your spirit. Every choice that you make is either going to open the door to the spirit of God and bring more light in or its going to open the door to a spirit of darkness who will try and contaminate your spirit. Thats why its important for your soul to constantly be renewed and updated. Always. So that the Holy Spirit has access to you and if you are listening, that you are a child of the Most High God. Let me just refresh this one more time. We are made up of spirit, soul and body. Spirit communes with God, soul interprets what God is saying, and the flesh does the work. So if the soul cannot interpret what God is saying, the flesh is going to serve the devil. There are a lot of people who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior where the seed has been planted. Some of them have gotten baptized in the Holy Ghost where they become a new creation. But they are not walking in that state of being. Or they have fallen from that state of being. Someone who gets first baptized in the Holy Ghostthey are walking in the third level for about a week or twothree weeks, four weeks. And they can hear the Spirit of God! You know what God is doing? Giving them time enough to start renewing their soul. And if they dont do things according to the will of God then they start falling astray. So your spirit is what gets born again and your soul is what gets renewed.

2 CORINTHIANS 6:17-18, 7:1 Therefore Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty. Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. We are to cleanse ourselves of the flesh and the spirit because the soul is to be renewed. Cleanse ourselves of the flesh and the spirit. So what is the devil doing? He is enticing your flesh to get to your spirit. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:4-10 Our spirit is light. Dont hide your light. I really believe that the Lord is constantly trying to bring us to that state of walking in the Spirit. See you can be filledbaptized in the Holy Ghost, praying in tongues and still not walk in the Spirit. To walk in the spirit is to make a conscious effort. So just because you pray in tongues and do whatever doesnt mean you are walking in the Spiritor it doesnt mean two minutes later youre going to walk in the Spirit. You must make a conscious effort. Verse 4, But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. So we are what? Children of light because we are spirit. EPHESIANS 5:8-12 Its really easy to get sucked up in the experiences of humanity. Real easy. It only brings frustration, pain and impatience. Anxiety and stress. But if you will begin to look at who you are in Christ and understand that you are just a spirit with human experiences. Things will begin to change. Verse 8, For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. In other words, expose them for yourself. When you find out that your human experiences are overtakingovertakingmore fulfillment of human experiences than of God experiences. Then you are to expose that. Its being exposed. You need to expose that for yourself. You need to ask the Holy Spirit to expose it. Thats called dual minded. People who are still looking fordesiring human experiences compared to the experiences of Christ and who they are. If your flesh is still running your life, you will constantly look for fulfillment in the flesh. And if your flesh is still running your life, you are in trouble. You can put all the act on that you wantbut youre in trouble. It will be manifested. The bible tells us that the children of God and the children of the devil will be manifested. If you are choosing to serve the world, you will become a child of the devil and it will be manifested. It will always manifest. It always has to come to a head. But we are children of light. Lets keep that light clean. 2 CORINTHIANS 4:15-18 For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our

-7-

outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. That means youre getting closer! I remember doing time and I would count that day off. You know whatI was in prison but when I got outI was still in prison. So counting the days didnt make me free. It wasnt until my relationship with my Daddy, who kept me free. From that point on it was no longer human experiences that were fulfilling my life. Its not about time. Im not bound by space and time anymore. My flesh is. But Im not. I dont look at time. My only concern is that time is running out to rescue more souls. But as for my time, its irrelevant. Because Im no longer bound by time. Im eternal. So I dont count the days anymore. Just make sure you get to work on timeand get home on time! Were not bound by time but we still have to obey time. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. That means what? Human experiences compared to eternal experiences. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. So if we get caught up in temporary experiences, you will end up being temporary. But we are already eternal so we need to get caught up in eternal experiences. Why? Because we are spirit. Even though we are in a realm that is a temporary realm, we are already eternal. Why? Because we are passing through it. It doesnt have a hold on us. Only if you allow it. Only if those human experiences are still more fulfilling than godly experiences. Then of course, you know you are fleshand youre not in the Spirit. GALATIANS 5:16-17 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. Wow! So that you do not look for fulfillment in human experiences. Now what do you mean by human experiences? Im talking about sex, drugs, rock and roll, wealth and everything else. Look what happened to the wealthy man. The one that came up to him and said I do this and I do thatI go to church, I go to bible study. I fast once a week. I do this and that. The Lord said, Okay sell everything you have and you will find rewards in heaven. He said, No way. You know why? He was still relying on his human experience of wealth. Human experiences bind you here to a temporary realm. This is where you and I are no longer bound to this realm where we are brought in bondage by human experiences. The wealth that comes to me and youthe wisdom and knowledge and everything else that comes to me and youour purpose is now to expand the kingdom of God and bring glory to his name because we are spirits, we are lightin a dark world. We are just an extension cord with light bulbs trying to continue to plug everybody in. So that the world can become light. So if we walk in the Spirit as children of lightknown as eternal, we have a choice. We will not fulfill the lusts or the desire of the temporary or the natural realm or the flesh. How many times did God tell you to give up something? I cant do that!! I remember coming across certain things of my past that I remember gave me fulfillment. Even clothes. Because I used to have clothes made and all kinds of stuff. I had a gazillion sun glasses. Jewelry whatever. When I was born again and a child of the Most High God, I didnt want to wear one piece of goldnot one earring. I wanted to get rid of it allmy wife had to drag me to the jewelry shop to have wedding ring made. I didnt want anything to do with any of it anymore. I didnt want any more of those human experiences because my spiritual experienceborn

-8-

againovertook everything. Nothing could ever compare to it again. It overtook it. My wife had to drag me to a jewelry shop!! I was having a hard time in there. Finally I got one but it had to have a cross on it. Everything had to bring glory to my Father, no matter what I was doing. No matter what I was wearing. No matter where I was going, I wanted to express myself as his son! Not in a human experience but in an eternal experience that I constantly wanted to continue to keep in running over and over and over. Thats why carsI dont care. Do you know how long it took for me to water my front lawn? I wasnt going to water dirt! When the Lord put grass there I said I would water it. Other than that, forget it! We need the money to go feed, clothe and shelter! Do you know how the devil likes to try and convince you about some of the old things. Well I can use that for the glory of God now. I think Ill tattoo my forehead with Jesus. I get guys come and tell me they are going to go tattoo themselves for the Lord. Macho bonehead! Yeah youre doing God a great service! Youre cursing yourself. The Lord said why would you want to build on things I delivered you from. He calls it an abomination to him. When we do those things, what we are telling him is Im sorryIm putting my human experience over my spiritual one. The bible says that exercise profits little. We have to be careful. People can get so caught up in the human experience of exercise that they lose their spiritual experience. Everyone can. We can get so caught up about being so physically fit that we get so spiritually dull. We can never let our experience as a son and a child of God Almightythe human experience must not overtake. Yes we are to take care of ourselves. The world says you need to do this every single day and that every single day. The world lied to us about everything else. Now all of a sudden we are going to believe them? You need a jog 45 minutes a dayyou need to do this every day now all of a sudden we are going to believe them? There are people that are supposed to be healthy and they are out there dying of heart attacks. Then there are people who eat garbagenow youre going to have what you sow. What you sow is what you reap. Sometimes it runs down the genes. I tried real hard to stay 160 pounds. It didnt work. Praise God. But I get my exercise on Sunday chasing my little girl around the house. Hallelujah. ROMANS 8:5-15 For those who live according to the flesh [or known as human experiences] set their minds on the things of the flesh [human experiences], but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. If you are not walking in abundant life and have peace, that means you leaning more on your human experiencesand youre a spirit and you dont even enjoy it! You dont even realize it. You think you do because the carnal mind is still running. It says, Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. Now this is what I was talking aboutthe carnal mind. The carnal mind and the mind of Christ are two different minds. Do you know what the mind of Christ is? The Holy Spirit. He is the mind of Christ. Thats why you have to have relationship with Him so that the mind of Christ is always reminding you that you are a child of the Most High God and then you have to constantly renew your carnal mind so it can communicate. Its got to be updated. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the fleshWhats he explaining here? But in the SpiritWhats he saying? You are not just a human!! You are a spirit!! If indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. He says

-9-

but you are spirit! But you are spirit. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Because were still groaning for that celestial body to fulfill you as a spirit. Right now we have a carnal body and our spirit is groaning. It wants to be ripped of this and put on its true body. Therefore, brethren, we are debtorsnot to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Why? Because they are always reminded that they are sons of God and they are walking in the Spirit, crucifying their flesh and the desire of the carnal or human experience is not overtaking the desire for the eternal experience. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba, Father. Whats the spirit of bondage? The spirit of bondage to fear again means that you have gone back into your human experiences which brought you into bondage from the beginning. He told them I know you are spirit filledbut listen you have gone back to your human experiences which brought you back into bondage. There were hobbies you and I used to havewe used to love those hobbies. I had all kinds of hobbies. I was hobbied out. Farbeit that I should go back to hobbying. Every once in a while the devil will try to squeeze one in there Dont you think its time you rested a bit and took up a hobby? Praise God we need to go into another jail! Thats a good hobby. Souls!! We need more souls!! More soulsrescue more children. More homes with more rooms. Far be it that we should fall back into the bondage of human experiences outweighing our eternal experiences. Why? Because I AM spirit. ROMANS 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. We are presenting our bodies as a sacrifice. Do you know what it is sacrificing? Human experiences for eternal ones. And do not be conformed to this worldwith desires, with what you are going to eat, what you are going to wear, where you are going to liveand all those outweighed human experiences. What toys youre going to buy for fulfillment of human experiences. Were just fulfilling the flesh and it will move you out of position every time. Dont get me wrong, God wants us to have fun but he doesnt want it to get in between us. People go in debt to fulfill the lust of the flesh. In cars, homes, clothes, jewelry, sound systems. All kinds of stuff. They are willing to please man. They will calculate everything they can and even begin to skimp on giving to God because of the human experience outweighing an eternal one. Its a bummer then, that child thats hungry and needs something and we look at all the toys we have and we cant even feed a kid. When you get stuff in your mailbox and it shows a picture of hungry children and you look out at your boat or your whatevercars and all these other things. You look around your house and you go manI dont even have the money to help feed this child. Here Ive got all these human experiences that are only temporary. This is where you and I must make a conscious effort to get in the Spirit. Everything you have is not yours anyway. Its not ours anyway. Everything has been given to me and you. If you think its yoursone of the worst things is to get in the fleshthe words that will come to you are I deserve this. You know you are fleshed. You are about to experience a human experience and deny the eternal one. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. You must constantly renew your mind. Because it can never be transformed. We just read it in Romans 8the carnal mind is never going to

- 10 -

become the mind of Christ. The mind of Christ is the Holy Spirit who is expressing himself to your spirit as he expresses himself to your spirit as you commune with Him you are gaining the mind of Christ but the mind of Christ is the Holy Spirit. The carnal mind must constantly be reminded. Thats what renewed means. So it can upkeep with the mind of Christ. If you have ever noticed, when you begin to slack off of reminding yourself by the word of God, by fellowship, by prayer and communion in the Spirit, you begin to pick up human experiences as desires. Fulfillment of the flesh. Things we eat. Whatever it is. So it is important that you and I constantly remind and continue to renew our minds we could upkeep with the Spirit. Thats why the Spirit communes and the soul interprets. If it cant interpretif its not updated, it cant interpret what the Spirit is saying. Then people get frustrated. I want to know! Then there is a time when I know I dont have to know. Im waiting on the Lord. I know that he will open the door and shut it. Whatever it is. There are a lot of things I want. Let me share something with youdont push the door open. Dont go in debt to push the door open. When that door shuts, God has a better place. If you go push yourself. How many times have you gone to buy a car or a housebuy a sound system and you had a specific amount of money that you could useand it doesnt turn out that way and its going to be more and you calculate and think about everything that youre going to dodo you know what you are looking for? A human experience for fulfillment. God is shutting that door because he knows down the road it is going to affect you. Hes got a better place for you anyway. 1 CORINTHIANS 2:7-12 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man, The things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. But if your soul is not renewed, you cant interpret what the Spirit is telling you. It has to keep updated. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. So as your spirit communes with the Holy Spirit, hes going to begin to express himself so that you renew your mind so that you can interpret what is going on. Now we have received, not the spirit of the worldwhich is bondage. But the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. Freely given to us. Why? Because we are spirit and we have an inheritance. We are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. We have dominion over all things. The carnal mind is going to tell you no. You are a human. I remember one time this dude said to me, Im only human. I said, Bummer! Dont use that as an excuse to me for your fornication. Thats unacceptable. Thats not what God says. He says you are his son. Youre his daughter. You are spirit. GALATIANS 6:7-10 I am a spirit with human experiences. I was a human looking for experiences but now I am a spirit with human experiences. Verse 7, Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

ROMANS 8:18-25 Romans 8 is the most awesome chapter if people could just understand it. Verse 18, For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. Who is that? Amencant wait to shed the skin!! For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Thats me and you. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? In other words, why are you still hoping for that human experience compared to your eternal one. But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Because were not looking in the temporary, we are looking in the eternal. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. So the Holy Ghost is praying through us. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit isWhats the mind of the Spirit? The mind of Christ. Because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Thats the perfect will. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? I am what? Spirit!! ****

NOTES: I AM Spirit born again is a state of being and how you walkwhether youre walking in the spirit or not. Because you and I have a choice of either walking in that born again state, walking in a saved state or walking in a lost state. But it says whoever is born of God overcomes the world. We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. Now what is he doing? Keeping himself from the world. Now that is if you are walking in that born again stateif youre walking in the spirit. Then you are going to overcome the world. Youre going to overcome temptation. It doesnt mean that you wont be afflicted or that you wont be tempted. It doesnt mean that you wont get angry. It doesnt mean that you wont be offended. It doesnt mean that you wont be hurt or rejected. What it means is that you will overcome those things. . and we are in Him who is trueWe are what? In him! In Him!! In His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. So if anyone ever asks you if Jesus Christ is God or nottake them to this scripture. It says you and I are in him. So understand something. When you and I are walking in the Spirit we are walking in Him. When walking in the Spirit we are abiding in Him. God man from the dust he made the body/flesh from the ground. The body/flesh was just a container to house HIS spirit which he then breathed into the container calling it Adam the life is in the Spirit. The life is not in the flesh which is only a container for the Spirit of God to reside in the natural realmthe container is not who we are. The container came from the dust in the temporary realm. The Spirit came from the breath of God which is eternal. Gods spirit is on the inside of us and it is that which God communes with, so when the mind of Christ is running us it means our spirit man has dominion over the container it is currently residing in. when the flesh is running us it is like a car operating without the intended driver in it. Our flesh was never intended to run us. The flesh is simply a container vehicle through which the spirit of God would operate in the natural realm. The carnal was never supposed to have dominion. The car is not supposed to be the boss. The car is not supposed to dictate to the driver. The driver is supposed to run or drive the car. So the Spirit of God IN me overcomes EVERYTHING the world/powers of darkness throw at me. The war is already won. Victory is already ours. The battles in the individual believers lives are won by how surrendered the believer is to the mind of Christ. To abide is to remain and continue in to dwell to stayto remain faithful. See definitions below. So when we walk in the spirit we are abiding IN CHRIST/in the anointing. When we dwell (or abide) in the Spirit we are dwelling in the secret place of the Most High God. in the dwelling IN the Spirit IN the secret place of the Most High, we will remain stable and fixed under His shadow. He is our fortress and strong tower so in abiding (dwelling, continuing in and remaining faithful to) in the strong tower that he is, we remain stable and fixed as this is where everything is (protection, provision, healing, etc). Nothing can withstand God. Nothing can overcome or prevail against the anointing. We are born of God His spirit resides in us as it initially resided in Adam when God breathed into him (before he fell). Its the same spirit. It didnt change over the years. In the Spirit/in Christ we overcome ANYTHING

the devil throws at us because that same resurrection power of the King of Glory resides on the inside of us. I AM Spirit because He is Spirit. His breath is on the inside of me. Its the same were related by the breath/spirit. Not the blood as the life is no longer in the blood. Abiding in Christ has to do with where our focus is. The devil wants to shift the focus to the container itself and everything happening to the container as well as things happening in the environment the container happens to be placed in. He wants the focus shifted to the pain of a ding here and a dent there. He wants to shift the focus to what the other containers are doing or not doing and what the other containers look like. When we remain abiding in the Spirit we look past the containers to the Spirit of God living within the other containers. We are not blind to the demonic realm influencing the other containers but we see through as Christ does. We see through to the end. Our Spirit is able to see the completion of Gods work in the other containers. We see their completeness in Christ. We see the end. Again, we are not blind to the demonic influences that may be impressing but we choose to focus on Christ in them. Why? Because its the same spirit. It is not the carnal eyes we look through. When operating in the Spirit we see through the eyes of Perfect Love and it is his eyes that see us already complete in Christ. This is where likemindedness comes in the body. Likemindedness when the love glasses are kept onwhen we choose to abide in the secret place of the Most High God IN the Spirit having the mind of Christ operating. The devil wants to shift the focus to anything other than Christ so this wont happen. He doesnt want our focus to remain on Christ he knows if he can shift it, we forget who we are momentarily and become paralyzed spiritually. Then the container and all the demonic influences impressing and now taking up residencethey run the person instead of the Holy Ghost, the person then no longer operates in the supernatural, their communion with God is broken and scales begin to come back on the eyes. Psalm 91:1 (amplified) HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. Dictionary.com defines Abide 1. to remain; continue; stay 2. to have one's abode; dwell; reside 3. to continue in a particular condition, attitude, relationship, etc.; last. 4. to put up with; tolerate; stand 5. to endure, sustain, or withstand without yielding or submitting 6. to wait for; await 7. to accept without opposition or question: to abide the verdict of the judges. 8. to pay the price or penalty of; suffer for. 9. to remain faithful (to): to abide by your promise You will be quick to repent when you blow it. The longer you hold onto it, the more the world begins to overtake you.

It says he who is born of Godborn of God. There is a specific thing about being born of God because God is what? Spirit. God is spirit. So if you are born of God, you become spirit. Everybody say: I AM Spirit. Now who births your spirit? The Holy Spirit. You see where it says capital letters Spirit? That which is born of Spirit is spirit. So the Holy Spirit birthed your spirit. Glory to God. So whoever is born of God or born of Spirit, which is spirit, overcomes the world. Because the Holy Spirit is what brings relationship. In other words, we call that conception a saved state. When the Holy Spirit comes over and births that seed or your spirit, you become born again, which we call a birthed state or born again state. Now you call him Father. Why? Because you are now spirit. You are now the offspring of God! the word became flesh or actually you could say that the Spirit became tangible. The Spirit became tangible. You and I are already tangible. We needed to become Spirit. The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his heart. Actually the inner depths of the heart mean the rooms of the belly. Because there are rooms that the Spirit is searching. Why? The Spirit is the lamp of the Lord. That means the Spirit is light. We just needed our light turned on. Its been off for a long time. We needed to get it turned on. All the rooms must be surrendered to the Lord. God wants all of us. Not some of us. All of us. He is a jealous God. He gave all for you. To knowingly keep and hold back a room or two or more that we know we have locked and leased out to the powers of darkness is rebellion. Because the Holy Spirit is the lamp and He is light. the light convicts and exposes so he can heal you. The Lamp and Light that wants to heal and bring deliverance all so he can fill you with more of Him. Hes trying to get something to you. But because you dont want to admit the rooms are locked and leased out you stubbornly resist and push aside his conviction. To know and reject what the Holy Spirit places in front of us to expose for the sole purpose of healing, that is rebellion. Pride is very present. Self and selfs agenda is still very much alive and protected. I said, You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. The word god here represents judgeshigh authority. It says we are gods or we are judges and children of the Most High. I think it is a hard thing for us to comprehend that we are actually children of God Almighty because the world is constantly trying to disqualify us as sons of God and children of the Most High. But we are spirits. We are judges or whatever. We are offspringwe are spirits. We are spirits with human experiences. At one time we were just humans looking for experiences. We were humans looking for experiences. Now we are spirits with human experiences. So you cant allow your human experiences to negate or disqualify you as spirit. Walking in the flesh is allowing human experiences to negate and disqualify you as spirit. You wont operate in the supernatural if you are in the flesh no matter how hard you amen and pretend, it just wont work. You cant serve two masters. You cant manage

- 15 -

demons and let them run you and walk in the Spirit with the mind of Christ running you at the same timeyou cant do both at the same time. The doublemindedness is there with flipflopping from not maintaining deliverance. This doublemindedness/wavering back and forth from flesh to spirit to flesh makes a believer totally ineffective. The Lord wont release anything until there is stability. If you look at all of your experiences and all your trials and tribulationsIf you allow them to just be experiences to you instead of torment to you, you wont get sucked into them. Why? Because we have already started our eternal realm. We have already started eternity. So why not walk in eternity and stop walking in our human experiences and start walking in who we are. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of GodSee the Holy Spirit is always assisting you in trying to convince you that you are a child of God. He is witnessing to you. Come on, you are a child of God, you are not of this world! You are just passing through! This is not your home! These are just human experiences. You are not bound by this place any longer. Even though you are capsuled in space and time you are going to be loosed from that soon! You are spirit. You are child of God. You are an offspring of the Anointed One and his anointing. Dont get sucked up in your human experiences. Sometimes we get frustrated at the things we keep repeating. Man I keep doing the same thing overDont get so delightful on that human experience. Dont give it so much glory. The enemy would keep us looking at our shortcomingsthe things we havent gotten down pat yetthe areas that still need to be conformed to the image and likeness of Christthe areas within our mind will and emotions that still need to line up with who we are in our spirit manin Christ. We are already complete in Christ. The spirit man is the very breath of God. It is perfect. The Holy Ghost is perfect and complete. Our soul has to line up (being renewed continually) our flesh must be continually crucified. We magnify what we focus on so just like the devil attempts to shift the believers focus onto anything other than Christ he will attempt to shift it to our shortcomings (or self) ushering in guilt and condemnation. The enemy just used a different area to shift the focus off of Christonto self, causing self to become an idol because anything when focused on becomes magnified. To magnify anything other than Christ is idolatry. When we focus in on anything we give it glory because it is magnified. The shortcomings will become huge if focused upon and the focus having been shifted off of Christ and onto the shortcoming will paralyze. Repent, renounce and receive (see teaching, Demon Management). The repenting and renouncing are extremely necessary and REQUIRED. However so is the receiving part which is to receive the forgiveness and rightstanding with Christ through the Blood via the repentance and renouncing. We have to receive the forgiveness. Its a form of martyrism to allow guilt and condemnation to oppress us. Its bondage. Peter when he denied Christ those three times he HAD to forgive himself. Jesus forgave him before he even did it. Those around him forgave him. His biggest problem was probably forgiving himself. If he had not, he would have been paralyzed spiritually and would not have moved forward in Christ at all. Same thing with Saul who became Paul forgetting those things which are behind This doesnt mean you sloff off the sin and say well the other person just needs to learn to die to self and not be

- 16 -

offendedIve repented so la de dah. Yes all must learn to die to self and not take offense. However that is not to be an excuse to shift the focus off of your sin and justify it. True repentance is from the heart and the renouncing of the sin/behavior ALWAYS will follow true repentance because there will have been a heart change. We dont want to give glory to whatever causes us to go around the mountain however we dont ignore it either. We will either deal with it by repenting renouncing and receiving OR we remain stagnant and paralyzed, pretending all is well, as round and round and round the mountain one goes. God always gives us choices. We always have the choice. But we are accountable for everything he shows us. Pretending truth isnt truth will not make it any less truth. Truth doesnt change. your soul which is made up of your mind, your emotions and your will, must be renewed. It is important that it is renewed and it must maintain a constant renewing so it can interpret what the Spirit is saying. We are made up of spirit, soul and body. Spirit communes with God, soul interprets what God is saying, and the flesh does the work. So if the soul cannot interpret what God is saying, the flesh is going to serve the devil. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. In other words, expose them for yourself. When you find out that your human experiences are overtakingovertakingmore fulfillment of human experiences than of God experiences. Then you are to expose that. You need to ask the Holy Spirit to expose it. Thats called dual minded. People who are still looking fordesiring human experiences compared to the experiences of Christ and who they are. If your flesh is still running your life, you will constantly look for fulfillment in the flesh. And if your flesh is still running your life, you are in trouble. You can put all the act on that you wantbut youre in trouble. It will be manifested. If constantly renewing the mind (seeking God purposing to walk in the Spirit purposing to maintain that constant contact) we are feeding our spirit man. He gets stronger and the flesh gets weaker. The pull for the human/carnal experiences gets weaker and weaker the stronger we get spiritually. The renewing the mind the seeking the Lord and things of the Spirit setting our mind on the things of the spirit begins to line our mind will and emotions up with the mind of Christ. When we are lined up with the mind of Christ it is like we are directly underneath the open window of heaven or floodgate the blessings, provision, favor, etc. are directly over us to flow down directly to us as we call them forth receiving what God already gave us. The lining up is about divine order INTERNALLY first and then EXTERNALLY. We wont be lined up on the outside if we are not on the inside. If we are out of order even a little we no longer are directly in line with the floodgate or window of heaven so we wont be able to receive what we have access to. We also wont hear or see clearly. Being immovable has to do with being lined up and in order. When we maintain divine order we maintain obedience. If obedient and in divine order we are denying picking up and following. We are able to receive the blessings and all the Kings treasures because we are in position (internally and externally) to receive EVERYTHING he died and gave to us. He already made it available. We must be in position to access it. Disobedience/contamination puts us out of order and out of line with the

- 17 -

floodgate/window of heaven. The floodgate will not be opened until we are in position to receive in divine order. Amen? Amen! To walk in the spirit is to make a conscious effort. So just because you pray in tongues and do whatever doesnt mean you are walking in the Spiritor it doesnt mean two minutes later youre going to walk in the Spirit. You must make a conscious effort. The bible tells us that the children of God and the children of the devil will be manifested. If you are choosing to serve the world, you will become a child of the devil and it will be manifested. It will always manifest. It always has to come to a head. But we are children of light. Lets keep that light clean. The wealth that comes to me and youthe wisdom and knowledge and everything else that comes to me and youour purpose is now to expand the kingdom of God and bring glory to his name because we are spirits, we are lightin a dark world. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Why? Because they are always reminded that they are sons of God and they are walking in the Spirit, crucifying their flesh and the desire of the carnal or human experience is not overtaking the desire for the eternal experience. But the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. Freely given to us. Why? Because we are spirit and we have an inheritance. We are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. We have dominion over all things. The carnal mind is going to tell you no. You are a human. ~~
