Four Very Important Questions

There are four important and essential questions that all people want an answer to.
Maybe you live in denial, and think that it doesn’t matter or I am not a person who relay cares, but deep down, all people want to know the answer to these four basic questions.
It doesn’t matter if you are religious or non religious. If you are a Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Atheist and so on, there is a longing in all people’s heart to know the answers to these questions.

Are you ready to know what questions?

You Are More Valuable Than You Think!

We are all looking for value and being someone important. We are all looking for love.
I think if we truly saw our value this world would look very different! This applies not only to the non-Christians, but to us Christians as well!

I think there would be less gossip, envy and judging others if we really saw who we truly are, I actually think these things would not be a problem, even sin would not be a problem anymore if we truly saw who we are!

See this important encouragement, which I think can help you and inspire you!

The Spirit and the Flesh?

(This is an additional version of a teaching I had for some months ago )

Many Christians don’t understand Galatians 5:17 very well, about the struggle between the Spirit and the flesh.
Many people when they look at this verse they think that this it is about our new spirit and nature, fighting against the evil part of me, called the flesh.

It means I still have a struggle on the inside and I have to constantly try to be in my spirit and try to kill the flesh, the evil side of myself.

First, notice that the Spirit is capitalized, that means it’s not about your spirit but God’s Spirit. Secondly, remember that the flesh is not you, because you are already in the spirit and not in the flesh. The flesh is crucified already and you live in the spirit now, it is very clear in some verses later (5:24-25), but the flesh will try to influence you so you do not do what you really want to do.
You have God and His Spirit on one side that will affect you and lead you, while you have the flesh on the other side who also wants to lead you, but none of them are you and the flesh is not in you either, or your true nature. Although you have already become a new creation and have a divine nature.

You are in the middle and you can choose to follow the flesh or the Spirit.

You Are the Fruit of the Spirit

Someone might wonder about this headline? But I will explain to you what I mean with this headline during this teaching.

For many years I was afraid of reading Galatians 5 where it is talking about the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. I was afraid that if I did some of the acts of the flesh, I did not  belonged to God anymore. I sometimes could get angry, I experienced jealousy and I know I did some of works of the flesh, and then it says that those who do such things should not inherit the kingdom of God.

Today, I am no longer afraid of this scripture, for I have seen truths about my

true identity and nature, my nature is the fruit of the Spirit not the works of the flesh. I will explain this to you in this teaching today!

Are Lusts and Desires Sin?

Some think of our desires and lust as something evil. Especially when we read this verse:

James 1:14-15
14 But each one is tempted by his lusts, being drawn away and seduced by them .
15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin. And sin, when it is fully formed, brings forth death.

Can I tell you one thing: Your lusts and desires are created by God and they are good. In fact, they are absolutely essential to our existence. Before you get upset about what I’m saying now, let me ask you this:
Do you have appetite? Are your desire for food sinful? I hope not so, because you would soon have starved to death.

Top two of our strongest desires we have are to have sex (the desire for food is number one). Is the desire and lust after having six sin?
Some strongly religious may say so. Some decades ago, there were also many who looked at sex as almost a sin in, and sex was just a necessary evil to carry on the human race (it should at least not be enjoyed).
Today, most people realize that sex in itself is not a sin, because there would not be many of us then, but if you feed this lust with the wrong thoughts, it will start to conceive something and if you dwell on it a lot, it can lead to death, for example of your marriage and/or relationship that you have.

So remember this: Your lusts and desires in themselves are not sin, but you need to have wisdom and know the truth so that sin does not control them.
God has also given you self-control, it is part of your new and true nature.
The only power sin has over you today is lies it wants to tell you, for the truth is that the power of sin was broken once and for all by Jesus’s death and resurrection 2,000 years ago!

That is the Good News!
