WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH

WHAT DOES WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH MEAN AND HOW DO WE WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH?

Many folks who hear or read God’s Word, try and accept it into their mind and heart in a fleshly or carnal manner.

In other words ...

From a point of view that is VERY limited in a PHYSICAL sense, causing misinterpretation of the message being shared. 

According to God's Word ... We must learn to DISCERN God’s Word from a SPIRITUAL point of view and to do this, we must learn to ...

 WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH

THE BIBLE GIVES US MANY EXAMPLES OF HOW TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH.

Galatians 5:25
If we live in the Spirit, let us also
Walk in the Spirit.

And IF we learn how and CHOOSE to walk in the SPIRIT … We are not overcome by the lures of the FLESHLY point of view.

Galatians 5:16
This I say then,
Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

And if we can do this my friend …

Then the RIGHTEOUSNESS of the law is placed within us.

Romans 8:4
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who
Walk NOT after the flesh, but after the SPIRIT. 

 See, the law is SPIRITUAL but most perceive it in a physical or carnal manner.

Romans 7:14
For we know that
THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 

But ... IF we CHOOSE to walk in the Spirit and the “righteousness of law” is fulfilled in us … There will be no condemnation, by breaking the SPIRITUAL law.

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who
walk NOT after the flesh, but after the SPIRIT.

Here is Wisdom ...

We must learn to compare Spiritual matters with Spiritual INSIGHT.

1 Corinthians 2:13
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;
comparing
spiritual things with spiritual. 

The REASON we MUST CHOOSE to Spiritually discern all matters is simple.

If we do not ... We cannot hear the TRUTH from the Spirit of God because we are BLINDED by our natural or carnal point of view.

1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
 

LET'S LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLESHLY OR CARNAL VIEW VERSUS THE SPIRITUAL VIEW.

WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH WARNING OF WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH DANGERS AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH CONCERNS

Jesus made a statement once that made many of His followers walk away.

John 6:66
From that time many of His (Jesus) disciples went back,
and walked no more with Him.
 

This Scripture is easy to remember because of the “666” which always rings a WARNING bell in most Christians  … This verse IS an excellent warning to those who do not hear the Word of God from a Spiritual point of view.

In this simple verse, we find MANY of the followers of Jesus changing their mind about following Him for some reason. I would like to look into the REASONING for their abrupt change of mind and heart as to avoid the same pitfall in our Christian Walk.

Here is what Jesus said that made many of His followers walk away.

John 6:53-58
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye 
EAT THE FLESH of the Son of man, and DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this BREAD shall live for ever.

The problem was that many of those present heard the Words that Jesus shared from a PHYSICAL point of view instead of Spiritual. See they thought He literally meant to eat His flesh and drink His blood.

When Jesus saw many were not comfortable with what He had told them about partaking of His blood and body ...

Jesus shared more on this matter.

John 6:60-63
Many therefore of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples murmured at it, He said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where He was before? It is the SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE. 
 

The word quickeneth … Means to give life or energy to.

The act Jesus was speaking of was SPIRITUAL.

John 6:51
I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Jesus is the LIVING Bread.

Jesus is the WORD of GOD.

John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:14
And the
Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and TRUTH.

Another way to look at this is to ask yourself, What is a word? It is an expression. The expression of God in written form, is the Bible, and Jesus is the physical expression of God.

Jesus told us plainly ...

That we cannot live by physical bread but by the WORD of God. The SPIRITUAL BREAD.

Matthew 4:4
But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

So we see that Jesus is the Spiritual Bread of God and that we are to partake of the Bread of God daily.

But what of the blood?

Hebrews 13:20
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through
the blood of the everlasting covenant ...

His blood is the blood which sealed the New Covenant.

The new Agreement between God and man.

Colossians 1:14
In whom
we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins ... 

Those that believe in Jesus are to PARTAKE of His blood and in so doing, then have redemption and forgiveness of sins.

It is a SPIRITUAL partaking of His Flesh and Blood ...

Many have chosen to create a somewhat physical act of partaking of the flesh and blood, by eating bread and wine.

Most that practice this act now call it Communion …

1 Corinthians 10:16-17
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the COMMUNION of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? FOR WE BEING MANY ARE ONE BREAD, and ONE BODY: for we are all partakers of that one bread. 

1 Corinthians 11:24-27
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

The act of Communion is a PHYSICAL expression of those who perform this ritual in obedience to fulfill this request of Jesus.

John 6:53-58
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye 
EAT THE FLESH of the Son of man, and DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this BREAD shall live for ever.
 

But, remember that just sipping a lil wine and eating a lil wafer once a week at Church will not save you. that is just the PHYSICAL expression.

PARTAKING OF THE SPIRITUAL FLESH (BREAD) AND BLOOD OF JESUS MEANS TO ABSORB THE WORD OF GOD AND TO BECOME PART OF THE NEW COVENANT BY BEING FILLED WITH FAITH AND THIS BELIEF IN JESUS WILL HAVE YOU COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND RECEIVE THE GRACE OF GOD.

So, we see it is VERY important to gain this SPIRITUAL insight as to be able to WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH.

WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH PROMISE WITH WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH BLESSINGS AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH HOPE

 The problem is that we are born into a natural (Physical) body and we will be transformed into Spiritual body when we pass on to the next realm.

1 Corinthians 15:46
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 

In like manner ... We need to transform our way of thinking from the natural (Physical or carnal) way we perceive things into a SPIRITUAL view of that which confronts us.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be SPIRITUALLY minded is life and peace. 

But HOW does one obtain this Spiritual walk …

1 Corinthians 6:17
But he that is joined unto the Lord IS ONE SPIRIT.

BECOME ONE WITH THE LORD ... STUDY GOD'S WORD.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
 

And get tight with the Holy Spirit, your comforter and He will reveal these things to you …

1 Corinthians 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 

You must begin to RENEW YOUR MIND.

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.

You must actually PLANT the new seeds.

Galatians 6:8
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 

I hope you do not CHOOSE to let the TRUTH end with this study.

I pray you seek this Spiritual Understanding passionately EVERY DAY …

Colossians 1:9
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to
pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding ...
