Are you in the Spirit?

January 7th, 2016 Comments off

No one can please God by being in the flesh. The flesh is your natural self, natural strength and abilities, self righteousness even. Romans 8: 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. KJV

Satan deceives folks into thinking that being a religious person is somehow the requirement for pleasing God. For example Jehovah Witness appear very religious as they go door to door preaching Watchtower doctrine. Latter Day Saints and Muslims all have an appearance of being religious. In fact the world is full of religious folks. Yet the test as to whether you can please God is this.
Romans 8: 9 But you are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

Then to be in the Spirit and to please God is only possible if Christ and the Spirit dwells in you.

Have you received Christ then you have access to this righteous. Have you received Christ then you can walk and live in the spirit. Have you received Christ then you are no longer a sinner.

It’s interesting to note that the Jehovah Witness own bible the NEW WORLD TRANSLATION has removed almost all scriptures that teach of Christ living in man.

This is a For Your Glory production…
