Are You Living by Faith or Feelings?

By Tony Alamo

Before a person can call himself a Christian, he must begin learning the way of faith. 1  There are rules of faith which must be learned if you want to be a vessel which is useful to God, one He can truly use to perform His work both in and through. 2  If your decision is to walk by feelings or sensations, rather than by faithfully doing everything God commands you to do, it is obvious that your aim, your desire, is for self and for pleasure. 3  Your works are not at all for God, but for self, for feelings. Because of this, you will refuse to allow God in Jesus to do His works in or through you. 4  This is because your heart is overflowing with self-love rather than with love for God. If God would, by the Spirit, tell you to do something according to His Word that would interrupt something you would like to do, this would naturally offend your feelings. It would greatly affect your physical and your emotional make-up.

The reaction of those who are offended at God's commandments is to, in their carnal minds, use their reasoning to reason away the Word of God. 5  It just doesn't make any sense to their carnal feelings. Their carnal thinking will help them pity themselves, and their reasoning will explain away the work God wanted them to do. In their human thinking, it justifies their giving up a life with God living in them and working through them for the achievement of God's purpose.

The work of Jesus our Lord was, and still is, the work of the cross, which is the opposite of a life of comfort, or doing what pleases us. 6  The cross life is the same life we must live in order for God to do His work both in us and through us. 7  There is great eternal, spiritual happiness, joy, and satisfaction when God is living His life and doing His mighty work in and through us. 8  This can only happen through our self-denial, our taking up our cross daily, and our following the Lord Jesus. 9  If you who say you are a Christian have not yet committed your emotions, feelings, sensations, and heart of self-love to the death of the cross, God in Jesus will never be able to live His life out in you. 10  If you have not committed your old life of feelings to the death of the cross, God in Christ cannot resurrect you into the new life, the spiritual life, the life which can only come and continue by a steady faith that will commit its old life and new life to the death of self on the cross. 11 

The Bible reveals for us the essential path Christians must walk, through verses such as, "The just [or righteous] shall live by faith" (Rom. 1:17). 12  "I live by the faith of the Son of God" (Gal. 2:20). "We walk by faith, not by sight" (II Cor. 5:7). "This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith" (I John 5:4). Again, we can only live eternally by faith, never by our own feelings. 13  We are "saved through faith" (Eph. 2:8), and "without faith it is impossible to please Him [God]" (Heb. 11:6). "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8).

GOD'S WORD BECOMES POWERFUL ONLY WHEN IT ABIDES IN OUR SPIRITS

The commandments of God are rapidly received into the mind but are not so easily received into our spirit, which is the place God is to live, the place our life is. 14  When we hear the Word of God, it must drop from our mind into our spirit in order for it to become alive and active. 15  Unless the Word of God becomes alive and active by abiding in our spirits, it will have no supernatural power of God in it. 16  It is only when the Word of God abides in our spirits that it becomes "rhema," the double-edged sword. The Hellenic Greek word "rhema" means the "double-mouthed" sword. The term "double-mouthed sword" means the Word of God which comes from God's mouth as rivers of life, 17  then flows through the mouths of Spirit-filled believers as rivers of life unto others. 18  Jesus confessed, "The Words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father [the Word of God, the Holy Spirit 19 ] that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works" (John 14:10). 20  Jesus teaches that every believer must be the same as He was and still is in these Words: "Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit [who lives in you]" (Mark 13:11, orig. Aramaic, Heb.). 21  (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were not written in Greek, but in Aramaic and Hebrew.). Before you can call yourself a Christian, the same God that lived in the man Jesus must not only absolutely be in you, you must absolutely let Him speak from your mouth, and you must also obey Him, doing the works He tells you to do, 22  or the work you are doing will not be the work of God. 23

The spiritual Words Jesus spoke from His mouth, Words given from the mouth of the Father living in Him, are meant for us to receive into our spirits. 24  When these Words abide in our spirits, and we abide in this world doing the works of Jesus, we "shall ask what [we] will, and it shall be done unto [us]" (John 15:7). This is just one of the many rewards we shall receive for letting God, which is the Word, 25  live and work both in and through us. 26  In this way we are able to fulfill God's purpose by the works He dictates from within us that we must obey. If we do the will of God, then all things God owns, which is the entire universe, belong to us as well. 27  So it's very essential and rewarding to allow God's Word, which is Spirit and life, to live and work in our spirits and through our bodies. This is how the true work of God, God's purpose, is accomplished both in and through His servants. This work of God can never be accomplished by human feelings, reasonings, thinkings, sensations, or pity.

From the very beginning of the New Testament, when God in Jesus came into the world as a man, 28  every evil thing that has occurred has happened because of man's feelings, emotions, thinkings, and reasonings. It is because the world population at large has refused to allow God in Jesus to live His life out in them. It is not God's Spirit mingled in the spirit of man that encourages men to make war or to murder others. Such things are the reasonings of unregenerated, unenlightened humans. God never counsels people to commit first degree murder, such as abortion. 29  This counsel comes from Satan and it is incorporated with human feelings such as self-will, desire, falsehood, self-emotion, and reasonings. This is the exact opposite of walking by faith in God's commandments, His Word.

Human feelings, which cause people to be disobedient to God's Word, are sin. It is rebellion, which is the same as the sin of witchcraft. 30  Again, rebellion or disobedience to God's Word, which is caused by human feelings, is what has caused all the chaos in the world, which has caused God to enlarge the borders of Hell and is what, at judgment, will cause God to cast the majority of the people in this world into the Hell He has enlarged for them. 31  Every act of murder, rape, adultery, or fornication, every theft, every lie, every cruelty, and everything contrary to the Word of God, whether seen or unseen in the world, is caused not by God, but by the human, carnal feelings and reasonings of unregenerated, unsaved, disobedient-to-God people. This is why if every rebellious, unlawful person desires to escape Hell, they must immediately repent of their wicked sin of witchcraft, then surrender their old, former lives to the death of the old rugged cross so that they might be resurrected by the Spirit of Christ in God to a godly life void of all rebellion, which is sin. 32  When the Bible says that our old lifestyle must be nailed to the cross, this includes our rebellion towards God, our feelings, our self-love, our self-pity, and our self-reasoning. Everything that is of self must be nailed with the old life to the cross. 33 

To enter Heaven we must "walk by faith, not by sight" (II Cor. 5:7), "not after the flesh, but after the Spirit [of God]" (Rom. 8:1). We can never be condemned by God if we walk according to His Spirit and life, which is located in the Word of God, the Bible. 34  This same verse states that we are condemned if we walk by the flesh, that is by our feelings, our emotions, and our will rather than by the will of God.

The life of faith is totally different from the dead life of feelings. The life of faith is also diametrically opposite to a life of feeling. A person who lives by human sensation may actually seem to follow God's will or may seek things from Heaven at different times when they get excited by a message from God. But this only lasts for a short time. 35  At the moment their "feelings " of bliss end so will every Godly work which could have happened both in and through them if they would have received faith by hearing and reading the Word of God. 36

This is not the case with the person who did receive faith by hearing and reading the Word of God. Faith is the rich ground, which symbolizes the spirit of a person who receives the Word of God and grows into the full stature of Jesus. 37  The more Jesus in the Father enters those of us who are the good soil, the more spiritual product, the more human souls, can be saved and matured on God's farm. 38  God's farm grows human souls with the Spirit of the Triune God in each product. 39  God cannot produce saved human souls with faithless workers who are idle. 40  The Bible explains that we shall be judged by the works we let God do in and through us or by the works that we allow Satan to do in and through us. 41  God in Jesus stated, "Without Me ye can do nothing," so it is vain, a waste of time, to even try to do anything without the Triune God living in you (John 15:5). 41a A person having faith has the Triune God living in him. Therefore, he is not affected by what happens to him. He keeps his eyes on Jesus, who is the fullness of the Triune God living in and through him. 42  He knows and remembers that the One he believes in never changes. 43  He sees others change, but never sees God change. Because of this, he continues letting God live His life and work His works both in and through him throughout his whole life to the end.

A person who walks by faith has established his relationship with God. The man who has faith never listens to his feelings, because he knows people who do listen to their feelings are not consecrated to God. 44  They will obey what their feelings tell them to do rather than obey what God's will craves to do in and through them. Faith follows God, while feelings merely depend on how a person feels. A person who lives by faith will reject every satanic teaching that the enemy attempts to plant in his heart. 45

Faith always looks at God, while feelings behold self. Read your newspapers, watch the news, and see what self-willed people are doing in the world. Read the Bible and see what men of faith do. A person of faith is like God, Who is the same in the storm as He is on a beautiful, sunny day. A person who walks by faith is as unchanging as God. 46  He allows God to express His life in and through him, and he expresses that same kind of life. 47  No matter what is happening around them, those who live by feeling and sensation have lives that appear to be hot, cold, and lukewarm. They can be up one minute, then down the next. They may live their whole life and never commit a crime, until one day when their feelings, incorporated with the spirit of Satan, will influence them to do something so evil they can't believe that they did it.

God wants all men to follow Him so that they might be spared an eternity in Hell. 48  There are far too many people who call themselves Christians who will only labor for the Lord if they will receive something for it, that is, if they will prosper monetarily, 49  or if it suits their feelings or their interests, especially if it won't imperil or hurt their feelings. You will see them retreat if the cross should come upon them, which requires their own life, their own spirit, to be broken and be mortified. 50  We must learn that if God is truly working in and through us, there will be great, Godly, eternal results for mankind. 51

The work God does in and through man is eternal, and only God living in obedient men of faith can accomplish it. 52  God's work is spiritual in nature, and those who are not of faith cannot comprehend or accomplish it. 53  God's work is eternal in character. 54  How can those who live by feelings ever unite in God's work, since nothing in God's work can ever please their unregenerated, carnal feelings? This is why they reason away everything God says with their own will and reasonings, which are void of faith. If they will not submit themselves to the death of the cross, and if the self-denial life of the cross doesn't cut deeply into their souls until they give up everything they desire for themselves, God will not be able to work in them or through them. 55  If they do anything such as tithing, attending services, or distributing literature, I call this type of work a limited work because there is much more work God wants to do in them. 55a Those who walk by feelings are much more worthless when it comes to spiritual warfare. 56  It is because to battle our feelings and the devil in prayer is verily, verily a work of total self-denial, I mean a life where our feelings are nailed to the cross. 57  The renunciation of our feelings and of the devil must be done continuously each day. 58  It is impossible to calculate the number of times you must do this in your lifetime.

FLIES, MOSQUITOS, AND OTHER PESTS

The devil and our feelings are a nuisance to the spirits of those of us who are saved. They are very much like flies, mosquitoes, and other pests that would irritate us. When the devil and our feelings are attempting to destroy our spirits, our souls, we must continuously brush them away by faith in God's Word, rebuking them according to God's Word, which says, "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (Jas. 4:7). You can never get rid of flies, mosquitoes, and other pests, and until the day you die, the devil and your feelings will also not ever leave you alone. Therefore, they must always be dealt with as Jesus dealt with them. 59  We take the time to brush away flies, mosquitoes, and other pests. How much more must we do the same to spiritual pests if we want to enter Heaven?

We can never gratify ourselves or satisfy our flesh when we deny ourselves, that is, when we stop living our lives for ourselves and others so that God can do His will, and live His life in us. 60  Self-life can never be found in those who live by faith, those who oppose Satan, our enemy, the way he is to be opposed. 61  After we know God's Word and have faith in the tremendous ability of God to do what He says He will, we can defeat Satan by praying to God, that is, when we become prayer warriors. 62

By faith we will feed and give drink to our enemies if they ask. 63  We will also pray for their salvation. 64  If our enemies refuse to receive the message from God by observing our godly actions and hearing the Word we preach to them, then God's Word tells us that God will "heap coals of fire upon [their heads], and the Lord shall reward [us]" (Prov. 25:22). When we have learned to be obedient to God in everything, we have learned the true, lawful art of spiritual warfare. 65  The scriptures I have just quoted can be found in Proverbs 25:21-22 and Romans 12:20-21. Those of us who are of faith never avenge ourselves because if we did, we would be disobedient to God, and we would be living by our feelings, rather than rebuking our feelings. God plainly says to all who can read, hear, or read Braille with their fingers, that "vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith the Lord" (Rom. 12:19). 66  The Lord tells us, "The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles" (Psa. 34:17). 67  Do you believe this? Do you have faith in God doing what He says He will?

The Word of God shows anyone who reads, hears, or feels the Word of God by Braille, that God has destroyed kings and kingdoms. 68  "He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill" (Psa. 113:7). In the eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews, there is a list of ordinary men who had faith in God's ability and supernatural power, which enabled them to subdue kingdoms, live righteously, obtain promises, stop the mouths of lions, quench the violence of fire, escape the edge of the sword, out of weakness be made strong, wax valiant in fight, turn to flight the armies of the aliens (Heb. 11:33-34). By faith-filled prayer, we will realize the fulfillment of our GODLY desires, not our human desires. 69  God kept His promises by sparing the destruction of nations. He has opened prison doors and freed the captives for all those who prayed to Him in faith. 70  He has raised the dead. 71  With man's feelings or reasonings such things are impossible, but with faith in God's Word all things are possible for us. 72  This means we must only have faith in God's ability to do the impossible. 73

GOD LIVES IN PEOPLE, SO DOES THE DEVIL

God lives and works in the people who believe in Him, and Satan lives in the people who believe in him. Jesus doesn't deny this. Jesus said to love God and hate the devil, or love the devil and hate God. 74  We must choose right now who we will serve. We are not offered this choice after we die. The choice must be made now while we are alive. Remember, there is a day of reckoning before the great white throne of God. 75

God will destroy the works of the devil in our lives when we, by faith, pray to Him. 76  We need no carnal weapons for this, only faith in God. 77  The Psalmist David, King of Israel, who believed in Jesus, the Messiah, said, "The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies" (Psa. 18:2-3). 78  God will do this for anyone who is His child through Jesus, the Messiah. 79

Resisting Satan means to resist Satan at all times. 80  At times, this warfare may seem almost unbearable for you if you have not fully matured in the Lord. This is why God's Words tells us, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee" (Isa. 26:3). This is because God in Jesus tells us, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee" (Heb. 13:5). Romans 8:31 tells us, "If God be for us, who can be against us?" 80a There is no self-pleasure for the carnal spirit which is burdened with an indescribable burden for the sake of God. 81  It will not be interesting for the self-indulgent person to attack evil spirits with every fiber of their being. But it is most interesting for those who are of faith to do this kind of work. They immediately run to God for help by prayer because they know that God has promised to hear, answer, defend, and deliver them, and they know He will do it. 82  God will keep all of His promises. 83  Gaining victory over our enemy by our praying to God for it is what prayer warfare is all about. 84  Are you praying to God for victory for others and for yourself? If I were you, I would pray always, as Jesus commands. 85  There is a lot for us to pray for and about. If you pray, is it for yourself or for God to work His works both in and through you? Pray for others. 86  God tells us that He comes first, and others are next. 87  He sees what we are doing, and He tells us all to "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33). The right prayer is the prayer to God asking Him to war for us, 88  which is totally void of our own reasonings, our own self-interests, our own carnal feelings, and our own interference. 89  There isn't anything in this type of praying to make you comfortable when you are travailing in your soul and praying to God to destroy and to build, that is, to destroy your self-life and build up His life in you. 90  Nothing in spiritual warfare can gladden the flesh if we don't have faith in what God says will be the final result for what we have prayed. 91

Those who are prone to living a self-life prefer churches where they FEEL comfortable. 92  They have no desire to deny themselves, take up their crosses daily, and follow Jesus as He commands. 93  Their hostility towards God's instructions will rise up as a deadly cobra every time the Word of God touches their feelings. An emotional, professing Christian is easily defeated in conflict with Satan when he is praying or assaulting Satan by prayer to God. 94  The enemy, with his evil spirit, will attack this immature Christian's emotions. The devil will make him believe that attacking Satan is too hard, too painful, and too hurtful for him, so this professing "Christian's" prayer will become lifeless, void of faith in God.94a His feelings of sorrow, self-pity, and self-concern have eliminated any concern for God's will, purpose, and work. 95  He is against Christ, he is anti-Christ, because of his feelings, his emotions, and his love for self rather than love for God. 96  He has stopped calling on the Lord to fight for him. 97  If he doesn't repent of this sin and seek faith, the enemy will take him back to the prison house from where he was once delivered by Jesus. 98

A powerless professing Christian is one without the power of God in them to wage war against Satan. 99  The minute his feelings come under attack by the devil, he will quit and remove himself from the war zone. If he doesn't allow his emotions to experience death, he is giving Satan an invitation to strike him and bring him back into bondage. 100

Every time a self-life person decides to oppose the enemy, he is defeated by one touch by Satan on his feelings. 101  We walk by faith, not by sight or feelings. 102  No Christian can hope to expect victory over Satan unless he has first overcome his self-life of feelings. 103  Spiritual victory over self, sin, Satan, and the world demands a constant dying of one's own self-life and a constant death to one's sensations. 104  We all must have total faith in God, trusting Him and Him only. 105  Only with this daily attitude, by God's power, by reading, and by prayer, are we able to bear up and not search for someone to give us comfort in our combat with the devil. 106  Only this kind of Christian can carry on with the Lord under every sort of anguished feelings. He doesn't care at all for his life or his death. 107  He cares only that God is leading him. 108  He doesn't have any personal interest or wants. He has given himself to the Lord as a gift for God to use in whatever way is pleasing to Him. 109  He lives only for God. God is his life and his eternal life. 110  He never misunderstands God or blames Him for any evil that befalls him, because he knows all of God's ways are right and were done out of His love for us. 111  God has victory and is given glory in this rare breed of Christian. 112

People may think, at times, that they are deserted by God and forgotten by men. Still they stay at their posts, their level of authority, their battle station, the watch that has been assigned to them by the Spirit. This person, by his faith in God's Word being truth and by his faith in God's ability to perform all that He has promised He can and will perform, is a zealous prayer warrior. He violently storms the throne of God both day and night 113  to take the promises of God by force and by violence. 114  Why? Because those who have faith in God shall not be denied. They will violently take what God has promised, for they are righteous because of their faith in God. This is why the Kingdom of Heaven allows this type of violence. "The violent take it by force," which means they will take God's promises by their "strong faith" in God's Word (Matt. 11:12).

If you are a true Christian prayer warrior, then pray that God will give His entire church, the Body of Christ, immunity from every plague coming upon the earth, which includes every virus, every disease, every infirmity, and every sickness. By faith in God's ability, he overcomes, an God destroys the work of Satan. 115  This is possible only because, by faith, he denies his own feelings, and because he believes in God's ability to do this work. 116

After believers have thoroughly gone through the spiritual school of faith by the reading and receiving of everything God says in His Word, then by the Spirit letting God do all of His works in them, they are able by faith to walk totally in the Spirit of God, where they will never sin. 117  Because they never sin, there is no condemnation from the law of God against their souls, and because they never sin, they are considered by God to be holy and perfect. 118  All those who reach this level of spiritual life have entered into a life of rest, or a seven-day-a-week Sabbath, which means a rest from their own life and feelings. 119  They have let the fire of the cross destroy their every greedy goal. 120  They have learned the lesson which God wants to teach everybody. 121  They know that only God's will is to be done on earth if they are to enter Heaven, and that all the things of the world, no matter how desirable, are not compatible with God, with His high calling for them, or with the reward He has laid away for them. 122  They now find joy in their ability to relinquish everything for God. 123

God is right. 124  He lets us have the things that will not ruin or corrupt us. 125  This is one of the many reasons we serve Him with joy. We know in Heaven there is a greater reward for us than can be imagined or spoken. 126  God wants us to reject everything and anything that would destroy our right to Heaven. 127  His desire is that our souls be preserved by obedience to His Word. All proud murmurings, complaining, self-seeking, and worldly desires, which are sin, have vanished. 128  We need to constantly remember that the highest kind of life, the loftiest kind of life is the life which is lived for God, the life lived by those obedient to His will. 129  The mature Christian has lost all things to gain God in Jesus, the Trinity. 130  He is extremely satisfied that God is fulfilling His purpose within him. He now has perfect rest, the true 365-day-a-year Sabbath. Nothing internal or external can tempt him away from being God's temple. 131  The child of God abides by a will which is united with the Lord's will. 132  By the fire he receives from the cross he is greatly motivated to constantly be filled with God's strength, the Spirit of God in God's Word. 133  His spirit is now able to control his emotions because God's Spirit in his spirit gives him the power to do it. 134  His walk is steady and is the same daily. There is no such thing as one day up and the next day down with the Christian who walks by faith in God's Word. He is at peace and at rest. 135  God works in and through him, and he knows it. 136  To accomplish this, he realizes he must keep his old life nailed to the cross on a daily basis, and by policing himself, that is, by making sure of it, he grows in the spiritual realm of God in Jesus daily. 137  We must never again be ruled by our emotions, such as self-thought, our reasoning, our feelings, our purpose, or our will, if our desire is to enter Heaven and live there eternally. 138  We must put to death such sinful affections. 139

We have a former condition and a present condition. 140  Hopefully your present condition is being at rest with God. 141 That is, hopefully you've managed, by God's power, to put the old, sinful life of yours to death with Christ on the cross so that you can be resurrected into the new life, which is the godly life, and be at rest or in Sabbath with Jesus, letting Him continue His life and work both in and through you on earth. 142  If so, you are no longer living in the confusion of your feelings, your emotions, you are now focused on Jesus, watching in prayer. 143

When we grow to the fullness of the stature of Jesus, we will find that what we have given up of the world in exchange for Jesus was nothing more than dung, 144  and that as a reward, God has given us millions of more things, things that are Godly and wholesome, things that are good for us. 145

Sometimes God allows us to go through many sorrows because our souls needed the fire, the cutting of the cross in order to enter Heaven. 146  Without our lives being totally committed to God, our souls are self-seeking. 147  Our unregenerated souls want too many things that are hurtful to a life which is supposed to be lived for the Lord. Our carnal selves seek many things that are outside God's will. 148  This type of self-seeking action must be cut off or severed by our becoming born again of the Holy Spirit. 149  Once we have given up our own life to the cross, we are able to enjoy the bliss of God within, even though we live in a world filled with doubting, unregenerated, and wicked people. 150  We are to not lose sight of God even though satanic spirits are living all around us. 151  We must be obedient to God's Word. We must never go beyond the boundaries God has set for us in His Word if our desire is to spend eternity in bliss with God and to have the bliss of the knowledge of Him living in us today. 152

ARE YOU HOLDING SOMETHING BACK?

Some people live for God, but also live for self. These love the Lord, yet love themselves as well. Their intention and purpose is to serve God, yet they desire to exalt themselves and live lives of glory, self-pleasure, and self-comfort. 153  This sort of existence is a defiled existence. 154  These individuals walk by faith a little, but walk by feelings a lot. He follows the Spirit sometimes, but most of the time he follows his flesh, his feelings. He doesn't keep the majority for himself, but the small amount he holds back is defilement to him, by God's judgment, just as it was with Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5:1-11. 155  Only that which God deems pure is Godly. 156  Any other doctrine mixed in with the Bible is filthy and accursed. 157

When we live the cross life, we will experience a divine life of purity, holiness, and perfection. 158  Everything will be for God, and nothing will be for self outside of what God has given us. Even the littlest desire outside of what God gives us must be nailed to the cross with Jesus. 159  Self-love must be nailed there as well. 160  The believer's sole reason for existence is to do the will of God. Everything that matters to him is geared to please God. Obeying God is his only purpose. 161  It never matters to him how he feels. The only thing that matters to him is that he obeys God, not half-heartedly, but with all of his heart, his soul, his mind, and his strength. 162  This is the true meaning of what it means to walk in the Spirit. 163  When God, for his obedience, gives him peace, comfort, and bliss, he knows this has nothing to do with what his human nature desires. He now sees everything as God sees it. With joy, he has put an end to his old, sinful life. 164  God has given him the highest life in the universe--the life of God. 165

By God's life living in him, he has been able to put an end to the destructive life of sin that he was living. 166  By his obedience to the Spirit of God living in him, by faith, the Spirit, the life of God, began building up in him for more power, experience, and maturity. 167  That which was the worldly, sinful life was destroyed, but that which is spiritual was established in his new life by God's life resurrecting him further and further into God's life. 168

THE PLACE TO ESCAPE

The world population at large knows that the world can't go on any longer. Billions of people are attempting to escape the reality of what they see in the world today by committing suicide, by taking drugs, alcohol, and many other things you already know of. This is what their feelings tell them to do. Human feelings and reasonings destroy people's bodies, lives, and souls. 169  People are even going so far as to delve into black magic and witchcraft, something even found in children's Satan-inspired books, hoping they will find something to satisfy their souls in it. They are running from one dead end to the other. They are into music, sports, food, worldly education and knowledge, travel, and unlawful sex. Lately, the majority of the world's people are full of dread from the things happening here on earth. 170

The devil and the world system will tell you there are millions of ways out, but the devil and the world are lying to you, and are condemned. 171  Obedience to God's Word alone is the only way out, your only escape to safety. 172  God's Spirit through Solomon states, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Prov. 14:12). "Lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him [God], and He shall direct thy paths" (Prov. 3:5-6).

Cease from living your life according to your feelings, worldly knowledge, understanding, and worldly wisdom, and seek only the instruction, the knowledge, and the wisdom of God. 173  "Take fast hold of [God's] instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life" (Prov. 4:13). 174  Cease from leaning unto your own understanding, or on anyone else's understanding except God's. Human reasoning creates things to believe in that are simply not true. 174a It is folly to the fool when he is told that God living in Jesus is also living in those of us who are saved. The Spirit in the Word teaches us to become nothing, because God chooses "things which are not, to bring to nought things that are" (I Cor. 1:28). 174b We must learn not to glory in the flesh, but to glory in the Lord. 175  "Cast all your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully" (I Pet. 5:7, orig. Gk.). Step out of your dark world of feelings into God's world, the world of light and eternal life. 176  Don't wait any longer. Do it immediately. The Lord is standing before you right now, urging you to open your heart and let Him in. 177  Let Him enter your spirit now by saying this prayer:

Prayer

My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11

You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.

Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.

Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
