Yielding Your Members

Our skills, capabilities, and bodies can serve many purposes; we can either use them as A tool of Righteousness or unrighteousness. The Apostle Paul advises us in Romans to present ourselves to GOD.

Romans 6:13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

To whom have you yielded your members? To yield means “To give way too,” it is A decision of your will who you yield your members (limb or part of the body) to. Either An instrument of unrighteousness unto sin or yielded unto GOD.

Those who are Instruments of Unrighteousness: Due to the sin nature which dwells in your mortal body, you will become A slave to sin, and servants of uncleanliness. Sin has reign (power, rule, dominion) over your vessel, which makes you obedient to sin unto death. When sin rules you, by nature, you will obey its lusts and passions. In the end, this vessel will receive the fruit of death as the wages of sin is DEATH!

Those who are instruments of Righteousness: Are yielded to GOD, made alive from the dead, and you are now using your members as instruments of Righteousness unto GOD. By nature, you will become A servant of GOD unto obedience, sanctification, and Righteousness. Sin should not have dominion (reign) over you. You’re under grace! This vessel will receive the fruit of Holiness & eternal life as the gift (grace) of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Do not be deceived; examine yourselves to see if you are in the faith. 2nd Cor 13:5

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

Sin is not what you do it is what you are: To learn more about having A nature change to become an instrument of righteousness, check out the organic gospel book The Organic Gospel. http://theorganicgospel.net/

The Road To Reprobation

The Apostle Paul wrote Romans to the Christians in Rome. The Roman church was mostly Jewish but contained A significant number of Gentiles. Paul gave A practical roadmap as to where sin can lead us and how our mind can become degenerate through sin. The wages of sin are death, and this clear outline shows the pathway to A depraved mind.

Romans 1:18-32 Gods anger at sin:

The Wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and Unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth. The truth about GOD is evident within these individuals, for GOD made it manifest in them. However, they decide to prevent the development of others due to their Unrighteousness. (I call this group the mutilators, they cut off the developmental growth of the babes in Christ, usually making disciples after themselves instead of JESUS they seek greedy gain).

Philippians 3:2 Beware (Take Heed) of dogs, beware of evil (Worthless) workers, beware of the concision (cutting down/ off/mutilation).

God is long-suffering not willing for any of us to suffer; he wants all to come to the knowledge of JESUS Christ. He draws us in, but if we continue in our sin, GOD will eventually give us over to A depraved mind. A reprobate is A morally depraved, corrupt, wicked person. When your mind is reprobate, you can become rejected by GOD and beyond the hope of salvation. 

Let’s Looks At the phases below:

Darkened (Veiled) Heart 

  • Know there is A GOD  
  • Decide not to Honor nor Glorify GOD
  • Unthankful Towards God 
  • Vain (Empty) thoughts/imaginations towards GOD.

The group above is the start toward A reprobate mind, they know or have heard there is A God BUT decide NOT to Honor him as GOD. In result, they will become unthankful towards him and will have vain/ empty thoughts towards GOD. 

This group usually refuse to receive the truth of the Gospel because it requires them to change and Glorify the GOD of the bible. When presented with the truth it is now hidden from them, because they are in love with their sin. As a result, Satan has blinded their mind from the truth.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 But even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the God of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

Given Up to “Uncleanness” (Physical & Moral Defilement)

  • Greek minds: Walk in the wisdom of this world as opposed to the Wisdom of GOD they become fools.
  • Idolaters: Create A god in the image of man or beast (statues, money, careers, celebrities, family, sex, children, horoscopes, etc.) 
  • Due to the fact they did not honor GOD and became idolaters, they are now given over to the lusts of their own hearts. This always leads to Sexual impurity (uncleanliness) i.e., Fornication, masturbation, pornography, homosexuality, etc.
  • Exchanges the truth of GOD for A lie (create A god in their image after the lusts of their own hearts)
  • Worship and serve the creature (things created) rather than GOD, our creator.

Due to the wisdom of this world, several become foolish, which causes them to change the truth of GOD into A LIE. If we refuse to receive the truth of GOD, we will automatically receive A lie. The uncleanness and lusts of the hearts will cause many to dishonor their bodies between themselves. FOR THIS CAUSE, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO Vile Affections.

Given Up to Vile (Abominable) affections 

  • Women exchanged the natural function (of their bodies) for the unnatural and things contrary to nature. (Lesbianism, feminism, abominable acts, etc.)
  • The men turn away from the natural function of the woman and burn in their lust for one another.
  • Receiving in their bodies the penalty of their error (wrongdoing)
  • Will not acknowledge GOD or consider him worth knowing as their creator.

Since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or retain him in their knowledge, God gave them over to A reprobate (depraved) mind.

Given over to reprobate (degenerate) mind

They were filled (permeated, saturated) with every kind of:

  • Unrighteousness
  • Fornication
  • Wickedness
  • Covetousness
  • Maliciousness
  • Full of envy
  • Murder
  • Debate
  • Deceit
  • Malignity
  • Whisperers (gossipers)
  • Back biters
  • Haters of GOD
  • Despiteful
  • Proud
  • Boasters
  • Inventors of all evil things
  • Disobedient to parents
  • Without understanding
  • Covenant-breakers
  • Without natural affection
  • Implacable
  • Unmerciful

Those who practice these things know the righteous judgment of God and are deserving of death. Not only those who do these things, but, also those who approve and tolerate others who practice them. 

As we see the wages of sin is death, we cannot tolerate sin nor keep silent when presented with the truth. God is A merciful, long-suffering GOD, but he will NOT tolerate sin in his kingdom. Intercession is needed for those who are headed down the road of reprobation. At this time, sin may be pleasurable for a season, but in the end, it only results in death!

God Bless,

The Glorification of the Sons of God

God is calling his children to spiritual maturity; his ultimate goal is “Christ in us” this is his hope of glory. In the end times, GOD will pour his Spirit upon the end time church. We must prepare ourselves now for when the end comes.

Those who are the Sons of God will:

  1. Be Led by the Holy Spirit
  2. Delivered from spirits of bondage & fear (**Note these are actual spirits we need deliverance from**)
  3. Receive the Spirit of Adoption
  4. The Spirit of God will bear witness with our human spirit that we are children of GOD. If Children, we will then be heirs with God & Jesus
  5. Will suffer with Jesus
  6. Be glorified with Jesus
  7. Gods glory will be revealed in the Sons of God

Romans 8:12-17

‘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.” For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not 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. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.’

There is a remnant (as with every generation) that will especially walk with GOD. These individuals will earnestly seek him and worship the Father in Spirit and Truth! God is calling us to seek him with our whole heart. If we seek him, he will be found even in these last days, “But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29

All of creation was affected by the fall of man according to (Romans 8: 19-23) when we come into the maturity of being Sons of GOD through full union with Jesus Christ and his body then the entire creation will be set free from the effects of the fall. This transition is not easy for Gods children & creation; hence it is compared to “travailing in pain together.”

The way we come into spiritual maturity is through constant communion with Jesus Christ & The Holy Spirit. Most importantly, it is about us resting in Gods promise, and you’re not called to do many works or force yourself to change. Instead, you can simply rest in his promise by meditating on the word of GOD night & day, having constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit and being led into all truth by the Holy Spirit. God will perfect that which concerns you (Psalm 138:8) Remember For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are Sons of God, (Romans 8:14). Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would lead us into all truth as Jesus directs Him. The Holy Spirit will glorify Christ in us, (John 16:12-15).

Another key to being led by the Holy Spirit is obedience; we have to obey his voice as he directs us into all truth and righteousness. Obedience is key to walking in GODS truth & light. “And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him” Hebrews 5:19. There is so much more to write about this subject, but I urge you to search the scriptures & please seek the Lord while he may be found. It’s time to come into the fullness of maturity to see the Glorification of the Sons of GOD!
God Bless~

Scripture Reading:
EZK 37: 2-6
Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed, they were very dry. 3And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”
4Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”

For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, (Hebrews 2:10-11 NASB)

The creation waits eagerly for the Sons of God to be revealed; for the creation was made subject to frustration—not willingly, but because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope that it too would be set free from its bondage to decay and would enjoy the freedom accompanying the glory that God’s children will have. We know that until now, the whole creation has been groaning as with the pains of childbirth; and not only it, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue waiting eagerly to be made sons—that is, to have our whole bodies redeemed and set free. (Romans 8:19-23 CJB)
