Let us not fool ourselves; Are we prisoners of God, or Satan?????

Are we prisoners of God, or Satan?????

Escaping our prison
The process of escaping the prison is sometimes a lifelong transformation for us to go through. No person will ever receive the light from God and then become whole the same day. Conquering the darkness is a long and hard process to endure.
Paul was a chosen vessel for God. God revealed his light to Paul on his way to Damascus where he was blinded by the bright light of God’s righteousness. But by God’s grace he was given sight to see the true path leading to God’s kingdom. Even the great Paul was not perfect after receiving the light. No; this was merely the beginning of his journey. The day Paul was baptised, he did not receive the Holy Spirit in one day, and became Holy and perfect in an instant either. It was a long and hard journey, even for him.
Paul was in the process of change, from his natural way of thinking, to the spiritual in which he had to rid his mind from the darkness and ego day by day.
1 Corinthians 15: 30-31 ‘30And why stand we in jeopardy every hour? 31I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.’
Our journey is explained in few simple lines on how to die, daily. 2 Corinthians 4 explains so clearly how that we have to change from the carnal, visible and temporal world to the unseen spirit and eternal.
2 Corinthians 4: 16 ‘16For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.’ Paul knew what his journey was, took up his cross and started his journey on conquering the old man within him.
The path of illusion some Christians follow:
We sometimes attend gatherings where masses meet to serve God. Our minds are carried away by the emotions of the people at these times. This makes us feel Holy and saved, by which we call out the name of Jesus and assume that we have on this day become new born Christians. We sing praises to God and the preacher tells us how wonderful Jesus is who gave His life for us and that we must love Him for that. At these times people feel so sorry for Jesus that they actually cry tears of sorrow.
How far did we advance closer to the light by listening to such teachings; accepting that the mind feels cleansed and we felt the presence of God? God is not felt by singing and praising. God is seen when His light and wisdom is revealed to us in separation from the noise of man. God is served in quiet prayer, meditation and listening to the Bibles codes being revealed. Healing people, jumping out of wheel-chairs and throwing away the crutches is not the truth. Attending these gatherings is not the way to die and carry the cross.
This is but an illusion and most definitely not the end of our journey; not even the beginning.  The journey of the cross will start when we feel the pain of conquering the flesh and habits of our mind. In other words, the mind should not be pampered, it has to change and die.
How does it change? Think no evil, talk no evil, hear no evil, do no evil. Love thy enemy, love thy neighbour, preach the gospel and help the needy.
Romans 8: 7-9 ‘7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.’
Paul makes it clear that the mind of man is an enemy of God. God will not live with the enemy. We have to rid the mind of the flesh first. It is not possible to have darkness and light in the same temple at the same time. When the light is switched on, the temple will be filled with light, and when the light has not been switched on the temple will be dark.
It remains our own choice, whether we want to serve God the Light, or mammon the darkness.
Matthew 6: 24 ‘24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.’
We have to pay attention to what God is teaching from this text.  We hate God whilst serving the darkness; I repeat, we hate God and we will prove that we hate the darkness by serving the light.
We might propagate with the mouth that we do not hate God whilst partaking of the world; but put it to the test. See whether we avoid speaking to the servants of God at the times that we are in the dark. We hide from God’s servants to prevent God from teaching and guiding us. Yes; I said, preventing God from speaking to us, because God speaks to us through his vessels.
So; what are we doing, but hating God by preventing Him from reaching our souls? We are literally fooling ourselves by partaking of the darkness and advocating that we love God at the same time; this is not possible.  We will hate God by remain in the darkness and this way crucify Him; or we will love God by living in His Word daily; and this way crucify Satan.
Prisoners of the Lord
Ephesians 4: 1 ‘1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.’
Paul was a prisoner; however, a prisoner of the Lord and not of Satan. These prisoners mentioned in this text are different to what we might understand it to be literally. Let me explain: Paul tells us that when Jesus ascended up on high, He led captivity captive.

And tomorrow we will continue with being prisoners of the Lord and not Satan. Page 109
