PRAYER PARTNERS AROUND THE WORLD (PPATW) - FOR THOSE WHO PASSIONATELY SEEK


























Romans 8:1-5
8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Acts 11:16
Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

INTRODUCTION

I want to do something different this bible study as compared to many others that I have written and lead. To truly understand what it means to be CONQUERORS IN CHRIST lets look at what and why many in the body of Christ lead defeated lives in Christ and this way we can know what not to do so that we can those CONQUERORS IN CHRIST!!! The purpose of this bible study is not to condemn or judge but to let you know why it is that you are not growing spiritually when you should!!! As I am being led by the Holy Spirit I truly feel that there is 5 basic reasons why BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS are not walking in the identity of Jesus as CONQUERORS IN CHRIST!!Yes there maybe more reasons but they all fall under these 5 basic devices of Satan as to him trying to KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY.KILL YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
STEAL THE JOY OF THE LORD
DESTROY YOUR TESTIMONY IN JESUS CHRIST


HERE ARE THE 5 BASIC DEVICES OF SATAN THAT HAVE THE FAMILY OF CHRIST FOR THE MOST PART DIS FUNCTIONAL

1. MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY ARE WALKING IN THEIR FLESH THEY DO NOT CRUCIFY THEIR FLESH NOR DO THEY CARE TOO BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY COMFORTABLE WITH FOLLOWING THEIR EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS AND CONSCIENCE RATHER THAN FOLLOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT. THEY POSSESS THE HOLY SPIRIT BUT ARE NOT BAPTIZED BY FIRE WITH THE FILLING AND LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHICH IS THE POWER OF GOD

2 MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT RENEW THEIR MINDS BY READING, MEDITATING AND MEMORIZING THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY COMFORTABLE WITH RELYING ON WHAT THEY KNOW RATHER THAN RELYING UPON THE WISDOM OF GOD. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER BUT WISDOM IS THE APPLICATION OF KNOWLEDGE

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Corinthians 2:16
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ

Romans 15:6

That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 CORINTHIANS 10:4,5
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

ROMANS 8:6,7

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

3. MANY CHRISTIANS ARE STILL IN SIN BONDAGE!!! YES JESUS SET US FREE BUT FREE FROM WHAT YES THEY BONDAGE OF SIN YET MANY CHRISTIANS ARE STILL LIVING AND PRACTICING SINFUL WAYS AND THERE FORE DO NOT RECEIVE THE LIBERTY AND FREEDOM OF JESUS!! JESUS SAID IT IS FINISHED MEANING IT IS ALL DONE ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS REST IN HIS COMPLETED WORK OF THE CROSS. HE WAS VICTORIOUS SO THAT WE TOO ARE VICTORIOUS BECAUSE WE ARE ONE IN HIM, CO HEIRS TO ALL THAT HE ACCOMPLISHED AND POSSESSES

Romans 5:19
For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous

Romans 6 :1,12-14
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

4. MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY ARE NOT FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST BUT FOLLOWERS OF FALSE DOCTRINES AND FALSE GOSPELS. MANY FOLLOW SELF GRATITUDE OR PROSPERITY OR A ONE SIDED THEOLOGY WHEN THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT ASPECTS TO GOD THAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT!!! THEY WILL NOT DIE TO THEMSELVES NOR OR THEY WILLING TO PICK UP THEIR CROSS. THEY WANT RELIGION AND THEREFORE THERE IS NO TRANSFORMATION NO MEAT OF THE WORD NO SURRENDER NO SPIRITUAL GROWTH. MANY PASTORS AND LEADERS ARE BABES BOT AS FAR AS KNOWLEDGE BUT AS FAR AS GODLY WISDOM MEANING BEING HEARERS AND DOERS OF THE WORD!!!


1 Corinthians 15:31
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me

1 COR 1:18

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

5 MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY LACK FAITH. ITS VERY SIMPLE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD WITHOUT IT, IT IS ONE THING TO BELIEVE IT IS ANOTHER TO HAVE FAITH IN WHAT YOU BELIEVE MEANING LIVING YOUR LIFE NOT ACCORDING TO WHAT YOU SEE IN THE NATURAL BUT KNOWING IN THE SUPERNATURAL THAT IT IS ALREADY DONE AND GOING TO MANIFEST IN THE NATURAL DUE TO YOUR FAITH!!! BECAUSE OF LITTLE OR NO FAITH MANY NEVER EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF GOD IN THEIR DAILY LIFE!!!

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. ...

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

James 2:26

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also


CONCLUSION

LISTEN PEOPLE I WAS ONE OF THESE SO CALLED BORN AGAIN BUT STILL NOT ENJOYING THE JOY OR PEACE OF CHRIST!! WHY BECAUSE I DID NOT WHAT TO RECEIVE THE VICTORY FROM JESUS WHICH MEAENT THAT JEFF MUST DIE!!! FREEDOM DOES COME WITH A PRICE!!! SALVATION IS FREE BUT TO BE A FOLLOWER AND DISCIPLE MEANS TO TRULY GIVE IT ALL TO HIM!! THEN AND ONLY THEN WAS THERE TRULY A TRANFORMATION IN MY LIFE INTO THE IMAGE OF JESUS. MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD IT IS MY DEEPEST HOPE AND PRAYER THAT IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ANY ONE OF THESE 5 DEVICES THAT SATAN HAS PUT UPON THE CHURCH OF CHRIST THAT YOU ARE NOW INSPIRED TO TRULY WALK IN THE LIBERTY AND FREEDOM OF OUR LORD. WHAT A GREAT TIME IT IS WITH THE DAWNING OF A NEW YEAR TO KNOW WITH OUT A DOUBT THAT YOU ARE A CONQUEROR IN CHRIST AS YOU HUMBLY AND MEEKLY SUBMIT TO HIM AND SURRENDER TO HIM AND RECEIVE THE VICTORY IN JESUS OVER EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE!!!
