BLOG 41 SENSE KNOWLEDGE

BLOG 41                                SENSE KNOWLEDGE

The world lives by its senses.   It doesn’t know anything else. Believers are supposed to live by the word of God, but most are also living by what they see, hear, smell, taste and touch.  Senses are the physical part of a person’s body.  God’s word is spiritual.  When you become a new creation in Christ, you are a spirit being.  You should no longer allow your senses and emotions to rule you.  If you belong to God, His word is to rule you by the Holy Spirit.
Our five physical senses are a wonderful gift from God, but if you let them control what you think and how you act, you are in for big trouble from your enemy.  The word of God is truth and it is the only way to know the real truth. This is the truth we are to live by. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6 Sense knowledge will steer you in the wrong direction. It does not matter how you feel, nor what a situation looks like, as long as you operate by God’s word, you will have success.
We operate in faith by the word of God.  You can believe something in your head, but faith is of the heart.  Just because you perceive something to be true doesn’t make it the truth.  Only God’s word is the truth.  What is seen in the natural, physical realm is not the truth.  Faith is of the unseen realm.  We don’t see God in the physical because he is a spirit, but that doesn’t mean that he does not exist.  Just like in the spiritual world, we don’t see with our natural eyes.  We see with the eye of faith.  Most are unaware of the spiritual realm and how to operate in it!
This is truth: 1Peter 2:24, “Who his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” Psalms 107:20, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.” Matthew 8:17, …”Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” Psalms 103:3, “Who forgives all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases.” (See Isaiah 53:4&5) 11Corinthians 8:9, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might be rich.” Also, see Philippians 4:13. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” And in Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  You have to know these truths in your heart and be totally persuaded by them.  The scriptures that I have quoted are not the only truth, but are among the many truths found in God’s word.  Search the scriptures and let them guide you.  Commit them to memory and keep your mind renewed to God’s word.
We have an enemy who operates by lies and deception. If one day you are given an evil report about your health, you must act by the truth of the word of God.  You can not let your emotions rule your thinking nor your actions. Only the word of God should rule you. If and when you receive an evil report about your health or anything else, you must not be moved.  God says you are healed by the stripes of Jesus-you are the healed.  This is what you believe and act on.  If you allow fear to come, then satan can bring on the illness.  Fear opens the door for him to bring sickness on you.     Stress, strife, and anger also does the same.  There are counterfeit symptoms. Everything he has is counterfeit!  The Bible says in Proverbs, “As man thinks in his heart, so is he.”  This is why we are to keep our mind renewed to the word of God. Then we will know all the blessings and benefits that our Father has given to us.  It is all according to what we believe! Not casting your cares and not walking in his peace can also bring poverty.  Once you have prayed and decreed a thing it is settled with God. (according to Job 22:28 & Mark 11:23 & 24)   “This is the confidence we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”   1John 5:14 & 15

Why do people believe the doctor’s word and not Gods’?  You have to ignore symptoms and don’t talk about the situation. You believe when you pray, no matter what! (According to Mark 11:24)   We don’t go to  doctors because we don’t believe that we are sick!  I believe the report of God’s word that says “By his stripes I was healed.”  However, this isn’t for everyone.  If fear and anxiety come in, then you better get to the doctor, because healing requires faith and the Bible says everything that is not of faith is sin.  If you don’t have enough faith to believe God, then you’d better go to the doctor, the lawyer or the Indian chief!   It is the same with finances and everything we deal with.  We have been given power and authority in the earth to speak Jesus’ name to things and they have to obey us.  Mark 11:23   We have been given the keys of the kingdom of heaven Jesus tells us in Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18: 18,19,& 20.  These keys are binding (means to forbid) and loosing  the person from what has him bound.
Fear, doubt, and unbelief are all from the devil. God says that he has not given us the spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind.  See 2 Timothy 1:7.  When you are in Christ, God has given you the power of his word, he has shed his love abroad in your heart, and you have the mind of Christ.  As long as you walk in the nine gifts of the spirit there is no law against you it says in Galatians 5:22&23.  These gifts are: love, joy, peace, long-suffering (patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance ( which is self-control) In other words, the enemy has nothing against you when you walk in these gifts.  You’d think it would be easy to walk in these fruit of the spirit since they have been freely given to us by the Holy Spirit, but satan is a master at pulling us by our five physical “sense” strings.
These gifts reside in our spirit and all we have to do is to draw them out by faith when needed. When born again, we are spirit beings first.  We have a will, mind and emotions, which is our soul, and we live in a body.  We rule our emotions by the power of the Holy Spirit and we speak to our body.   We tell it God’s word, the scriptures, because we believe them. We take God at his word just like it is written.
The people in the world do not have the same benefits and blessings that we, the body of Christ have.   All they have is sense knowledge.   All they know to do is to believe the doctor’s report and go through some horrible experiences.  We are not to receive the evil report.  We do not own it; it is not ours.  Refuse it immediately!  Cast down the thoughts and do not let the enemy rule you by your senses and emotions.   Have you ever heard someone say, “My cancer, my heart problem, my arthritis”?   These confessions are deadly.   Jesus is our Lord, he rules us by his word coming from the Holy Spirit.
I pray that I have helped you. I know these things because I have experienced them personally.
If you haven’t been born again and made a new creature in Christ and would desire to: simply believe on Him and what he accomplished on the cross.  2Corinthians 5:17, Romans 10: 9, 10, & 13  Repent of your sins and receive his forgiveness.  Just call on him, but be serious and sincere.   Next, find a spirit filled believer to disciple you. ( I can do it by blog, or thru internet and there are other ways) I want all to know and experience my wonderful and mighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
You are blessed.  Believe it!
This is faith cabin saying bye ’til next time. Love and smiles.
