Who's the guide, the Holy Spirit, or us?!?

Post  Admin on Fri Jun 27, 2008 6:44 pm

Many times, in the first Star Wars series, a "gold mine" for George Lucas, Obi-wan (the deceased Alec Guiness) says to Luke "trust your feelings", over & over again.
Since we can be easily misled in our soul by satan & company, our feelings and emotions are the LAST thing we should trust, if ever!
[Feelings & emotions were designed by God to come at the "END" of something to show us if we did the right thing or not, but NEVER "the caboose at the front of the train", so to speak, where feelings & emotions are our 'guide'.....the "engine", the H.S., of God's leading goes there, as any train-man will tell you.

An "instinct" for something is better, but we should trust only the new spirit-nature indwelled by the Holy Spirit and soaked by His word from scripture!
[We are not vulnerable to the enemy ONLY in our H.S. indwelled-spirit; our "soul", which IS vulnerable, contains: heart, mind, intelligence, thoughts, feelings, emotions, will, human-spirit {courage, intensity, etc.}, imagination and conscience.]
The best defense is 2Corinthians 10:5-b "Hold EVERY thought captive and make it obedient to Christ", like putting an editor in your head, checking out everything before the thought continues to fantasy, or becomes a word or action that you can't take back.
It's one of the main operational verses for a real Christian's spiritual growth, and with the practice of a few second's restraint, lets you also obey James 1:19 naturally !..............
..............In regard to genuine believers [Romans 10:9], { besides the crippling effect of anything to do with water baptism-1Corin. 1:17 }, one of the biggest problems for Christians today is not being able to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit coming thru their fellow believers!
Most real Christians are still "baby" Christians, infants who are incapable of doing their real work because of a lack of spiritual growth and maturity & bad doctrine---like any infant they can only think of what they want, and don't have the maturity & wisdom to "fight the good fight", or anything else scripturally needed.
As a result, "teamwork" almost does not exist; and teamwork is a prime requirement for a fully functioning Body of Christ on this planet.
This is a "call" for my brothers and sisters in Christ to grow up, and do some real grunt work & sacrificial love, instead of just enjoying their materialistic life in DisneylandUSA.....it is so bad that not even one of them has invited me into their homes yet;
Christ will point out to them some day that He and the Apostle Paul wouldn't have been invited in either!
