SPIRITUAL FOOD 4 THOUGHT - "THAT'S A SIN YOU MAY STRUGGLE WITH YOUR WHOLE LIFE"
https://i.postimg.cc/2yd5WG7y/struggle.jpg

## <center>That's not the best message in my opinion.</center>

------ 

Have you ever heard a pastor or some other believer claim, "That may be a sin you struggle with for your whole life," or some other form of that statement? How does such a claim measure up against Matthew 5, 1 Corinthians 6, or Revelation 2 & 3? 

Personally, I think it's a sad belief system that encourages a laxadasiacal attitude towards purity, holiness, and spiritual growth. In this video, I share some of my thoughts on the matter, starting in Matthew 5. Next time I'll be back to share more of what I believe based upon Christ's statements in Matthew and some things in the so-called "natural world."

Here is the comment I left over at youtube...wanted to share it here on steemit as well......

Nice to see you back again! I hope you will be able to do more of these with a little less time in between videos! haha! Just kidding!

In this life will we fall and fail..yes..we are then picked back up through the redemptive power of the Lamb. BUT if we life our life saying that we will have to live with the sin our whole life then what you are doing is setting yourself up for failure. You are telling yourself that "yes, I know it is wrong and I am going to do it again but the pastor told me it was going to be this way" We are to flee as far from sin as possible and if something causes us to sin then we need to do all that we can to not get into a situation where we can do those sins again...

1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."

You must know how to interpret the word of God in the bible, I think not everyone knows how to do it.

I thank God for you and your family. 

I am looking forward to the next video.

The community that were privileged to listen to his teaching first hand, had longed for the Messiah. They waited in earnest, many of them, for Him. Even mistaken His kinsman John for Him.

Their religion was fraught with sins of the flesh. To the extent that the leadership of His day would crucify Him eventually because of their unbelief.

The message was hidden. It would later be revealed by the Spirit. The sin of self mutilation is unfortunately still rampant in religions today. There's no need to destroy our body literally.

There's a body of scripture that teaches us to separate ourselves from the flesh. 

It began on the eighth day of creation. The day following the Sabbath. And it was taught again to Abram when the actual act of separation took place in the ritual of circumcision. Again on the eighth day. 

Now we have been told to be born again. Not of the flesh. As in our mothers womb but of the Spirit. 

This teaching can only be taught to us by the Spirit helping us to remember His words. Rebirth us not optional. But it is not physical. As in the womb. It is by death to our ability to please Him outside the Spirit.

It is impossible to please Him without the Spirit. 

With the Spirit we are reborn to walk in newness. Not in the flesh.

We cast the flesh aside. 

As a new creature.

God bless you and yours.

I'm a little confused, you said "It began on the eighth day of creation." When I read Genesis it says there are only 7 days in the creation week. What is this 8th day you are referring to?

Creation itself took six days and on the seventh he rested. The eighth day is not referenced in the first of Genesis, it is taught in the scripture in the Genesis record of Abraham. The promise of resurrection is told in that Genesis record of the time that Isaac, who was the likeness of the children born to Abraham as a result of a promise. Abraham's children were to be circumcised on the eighth day. This of course is not on a first day of the week, but a lesson about the new covenant of the heart. The eighth day is a Sunday. 

I didn't intend to confuse, only to shed light on the action of the Spirit which was given to indwell the children of Abraham after the Ascension of the Messiah. He was resurrected on the first day of the week. 

The eighth day. The day of Atonement.
It's a teaching of scripture that the New covenant was to be a Spiritual covenant. So the true second week of creation would have been about salvation of His creation. 

The scripture does not say how long before Adam and Eve lived in the paradise of the garden before they sinned. But their sin did not lead to the story of salvation. Salvation was planned before the creation. So immediately after creation, God set in motion, on the eighth day when the resurrection would take place. 

The plan to save creation was in place before the First Sunday of creation. It began on the eighth day. The day of circumcision. The day when the children of Abraham, born as a result of a promise would cut off the flesh.

If your eye offends pluck it out. If your hand offends cut it off. 

We are called to separate from the flesh.

Why? 

Because the flesh is created. So we must be reborn. On the eighth day. 

Circumcised of the heart.

I am open to any thoughts you may have. But Jesus spoke in parables at times to hide the truth. And even in Revelation it says he who has ears let him hear. 

Our hearing of God's words is brought about by His Spirit through the Word.

I hope this helps explain the second week of creation. Which began on the eighth day.

@papa-pepper is part of the gang stalking group @steemspeak ran by @fyrstikken, that uses Voice to Skull. This comment is here to let people know.

This is not a warning, it's a fact. Voice to skull will read your thoughts first without your knowledge for a long time, to map you. They then include transmitting self octave scale-able comments into your head to a tight, pulsed pace, indefinitely. Any brain activity, even the smallest, will trigger this when sound is turned on. You have to do all of your thinking around this. It is extreme torture, done by monsters.

@papa-pepper your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special, your so special.

Thank you so much for bringing back Spiritual Food 4 thought.  It makes a lot of sense. We need to be totally clean. How can we do that when we cling to a few sins. For those contaminate.   We would not choose to use food if part of it is rotten.  We would not enter a friends home with muddy slimy shoes and track on the white pure carpet. They would not allow it.   So to is God.   We get cleaned up by Him and leave our dirty sins our filthy shoes behind. Thanks for your ministry.  @papa-pepper.
