Many say Jesus took the keys to hell, death, and the grave but they are still living in hell, death, and the grave. Many are so happy that they are not going to hell but they are living in hell right now. Living in torment, depression, possession, bondage, anger, and so on. Hell is eternal torment. Many Christians are living in hell on earth. Still living in the grave clothes, still living in the flesh that brings forth death. Saved but not set free. A son, but still living like a servant. Righteous but not walking in righteousness. You may not be hell-bound but hell has you bound. Many say they were saved by grace through faith but they don’t want to be saved now. They want to be saved for eternity but not saved and set free now. I don’t want just to be saved from the place called hell, I want to be saved from living in hell. I want to be set free from the foundation that the devil has been building in us since we were children, what he was doing inside of us since before we got saved. Now those things have to die that the body of sin may be done away with! That the grave of religion would be broken open!
Many say once saved always saved but they speak that in defense of their lifestyles. We know that doctrine is of the devil but why would you still want to live the rest of your life bound to sin and bound to this world when resurrection power lives inside of you? The Bible says that we are dead to sin but many are still living like they are dead in sin. Many have a reputation that they are alive but they are dead. Many are new creations but they are still living like the old creation. Many have life inside of them but are still living in death on the outside of them. Your body is now the temple of God. Now we must let the life in our spirit bring life to our body, life to the temple. The wages of sin is death. There is sin that does not lead unto death but why play with sin that is still going to reap forth some form of death in your life and still going to destroy your walk and destiny and open doors for the enemy to devour you? The devil is looking to steal, kill, and destroy. He is seeking whom he can devour. He can devour us if we let him. He is looking for footholds and looking to make strongholds.
How can we be the light of the world if we still walk in darkness? That's why religion says, “This little light of mine,” because the light in them is so small and the darkness in them is so great. If your eye be single your whole body will be full of light, but their eyes are double. They serve two masters. A double-minded man is unstable in all his way receiving nothing from God. So what if you make it to heaven, you’re living in hell right now. Living 60, 70 years bound to satan is too much torment for one let alone one day! Living destitute of the promises of God. Destitute of genuine joy, peace, and righteousness. Living in a prison of untapped potential in God. Christ inside of you but He never manifests outside of you. The enemy doesn't care if you are Christian. If he can stop you from walking in the will of God and walking in all that God has for you, he’s happy.
We need to stop being Christians in name and start being Christians in power. A sinner’s prayer isn’t going to save the lost; the power of God will. Many tell the world that they are saved but the world looks at them and says, “What are you saved from?” We need to actually be saved from something, not just from hell, not just to go to a better place, yet saved from this place, from this world, from the god of this world, because the god of this world wants to make it hell on earth for every Christian around the world. This world is a form of hell compared to where we are going in eternity but if we live not of this world, it is heaven on earth. If we start living through the kingdom inside of us, they will throw us in jail and we will still be in joy and peace like Paul and Silas singing songs and praises unto the Lord. Greater is He that is inside of us than he that is in the world. Our portion is high level. The Bible says even when we face diverse temptations to count it all joy. The Kingdom of God is higher. It says even if we have trouble in this world to be of good cheer because He has overcome this world. We are called to live in the earth but we are called to heaven on earth. We are not called to be troubled and conformed with the world but to be transformed with God.
Satan wants to keep you bound, keep you tormented, and keep you in sin. Satan has the church saying, “Were just sinners saved grace.” As they keep sinning and keep living defeated, he walks in victory over their life. Many are walking in shame, guilt, condemnation, and oppression because they won't let the flesh die. Sinning, repenting, sinning, repenting but never overcoming. Living in prisons of fear and worry. Fear brings torment. Fear is hell on earth. Many want to make peace with their fears. Many want to make peace with their flesh but do not know that they are losing their peace with God. We are peacemakers but we do not make peace with the flesh.
The Kingdom of God is joy, peace, and righteousness in the Holy Spirit. Anything else is bondage, anything else is torment. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Everybody wants to be saved from hell but no one wants to be saved from the hell living inside of them. Many don’t want to go to hell but they still want to live like hell. You might not be going to hell but you’re living in hell right now when you walk in the flesh, when you do what you want, and when you don’t put your hand to the plow of the word.
When we think about sin and the flesh, we think we should not do any of it or have any of it inside of us because God hates it or because we need to do the right thing, and that's true but that is only the surface level. Beloved, sin is sin for a reason, flesh is flesh for a reason. Darkness is dark for a reason because it causes harm to something or someone. Whether it be God or man or yourself, someone is being damaged by it. If you cheat on your wife or husband, the whole family is scarred, even the kids. When you are offended with someone, not only are you probably oppressing that person spiritually, but you also are harming yourself causing a root of bitterness in yourself. Now you are not free, and God can’t forgive you if you don’t forgive others. We will all be free in heaven, but why not be free now? Why not store up your riches in heaven now where moth and rust cannot touch? Why not have 100 fold not only in the life to come but in your life now?! If you want to live for now, live for the Kingdom that is inside of you now. If you want to live for this life, live for His life inside of you now because His life is greater and more abundant than yours can ever be.
The Bible says all of the law and the prophets hang on these two things, love God with all your heart, mind, and soul and love your neighbor as yourself. Either yourself, your neighbor, or God is getting harmed when we walk in the flesh. This is why we must crucify it, and there is grace to do so in the process of time as we go from faith to faith and glory to glory. Yet false grace people will say, “O brother, that’s works.” Meanwhile, they are living in a prison of darkness. The Bible says work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Work out your salvation that your salvation would save you now. How about Ananias and Sapphira? How about those in Revelation who fornicated with Jezebel and were told if they don't repent they will end up in a sickbed? How about those who were told they would be spit out of His mouth if they don't repent for being lukewarm? Many want to argue whether they were saved or not or went to heaven or not. WHO CARES! Why would you want to be made an example like them? Why would you want your candlestick to be taken away? Why live a life full of religion when you could have lived a life full of freedom in the Holy Spirit? People are like, “Well, at least I would make it to heaven.” Well, that’s why you’re living in hell right now. That’s why Jesus called these the least in the Kingdom of God.
He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. Whosoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Why settle to be the least. “Well, at least I believe.” Many want to do the least. Many want to just do the bare minimum of Christianity to make it by. They want to believe and get saved, but they do not want to believe and live like a saved man now. We should not be eager to just go to heaven. We should be eager for it to be on earth that it is in heaven. We should be eager to be heavenly vessels now not later! Don’t be a hearer of the word without being a doer. That is like a man that beholds his natural face and walks away and forgets what he looks like. Everything God has for us is for our good. Rebelling against Him is rebelling against your blessing. Your best life now isn’t about the best you, it’s about letting Christ be formed in you. His life is the best life because His life is now our life. Our life is no longer our own. We are now to glorify Christ in our body. We are no longer our own but we are now Christ’s.
Many preach or teach the word but they cannot do it in boldness because they know they are not living and walking right with God themselves. Some know they are not in the Spirit but they will press through because of pride, because others are watching, and because others are seeing, and because of what they see, they are not believing because what they see is only word and not the word made flesh. And because of these, the gospel is ill-spoken of. Many have a ministry but the gates of hell are prevailing against their ministry. We need to close all access to the gates of hell by closing access to our flesh. We all are in the process of time and have been given grace to arrive unto the full stature of Christ. Yet that needs to be the plow that we push because some are not pushing the plow and just trying to survive this life until they get to heaven. Just trying to have faith even though the accuser beats up their mind. We need to remove the flesh. That way the accuser has nothing to say that we would stand firm in our faith without the storms that we conjure up, the hell that we bring to our life.
Don’t blame satan. Satan is only doing what he does, yet you have the power. We have access to heaven, and as it is in heaven so shall it be on earth in us. We are called to the image of God, not the image of the beast. When Adam and Eve got kicked out of the garden, they reaped death. The flesh brings forth death. They didn’t go to hell but it cost them intimacy and inheritance. Every time we rebel against the word and the Kingdom, it costs us things. There’s always repentance, but if we do not repent, we start to walk in the way of Cain. Not dead but alive with coals of fire upon our head unto the destruction of his flesh that his spirit may be saved. Why would you want this to be you? Cain was living in hell on earth. Adam and Eve were living in heaven on earth but gave it up to the serpent. Choose this day whom you serve. Two will stand before Christ, both will be saved, but one will have their works burned by fire and the other one’s works will stand. Choose this atmosphere you shall live in. Will it be for you as it is in hell or as it is in heaven?
