Navigating the New Year. (Part 3) Jesus life

Navigating the New Year. (Part 3) Jesus life was marked by challenging peoples perspectives and calling them to the Truth. The first words of his ministry were: (Mt. 4:17) Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. His next recorded words: (19) Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. halitus (from hals): sailor!

Repent: Reconsider (A New Perspective.) The Kingdom of Heaven Follow Me: Rearrange (A New Direction.) Fishers of men He was calling them to navigate their lives according to Gods Compass. (Pr. 3:5,6; Ps. 119:105)

Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Ps 73:24 Successful navigation requires that you consider: Your Final (desired) Destination: Your Current (actual) Location: If you get either of these wrong,

youll end up Your current Location (Spiritual Condition) Examine (peiraz: Scrutinize) yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove (dokimaz: Test) your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 2 Cor 13:5

Adokimos: unapproved, disqualified, rejected! Gods Design Let us make man in our image Gen. 1:26; 1 Jn. 5:7 Body {soma} So we can relate (function) to the creation. Soul {psyche} So we can relate to each other. Spirit {Pneuma} So we can relate to our Creator. Gen 2:7 Gods Design Let us make man in our image 1 Thess 5:23 The God of peace sanctify you wholly;

Spirit (Dominant) Soul (Clear; rational) Body (Controlled) and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Satans Desire {2 Cor. 2:11}: pull us away from Gods Design by allowing the soul or flesh to dominate us.

This is the essence of Sin. Ro. 14:23 Whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Harmatano: to miss the mark (Gods goal) and So not share the prize. Satan (sin) mars Gods image and distorts or destroys Gods purposes. (Jer. 29:11) Jn 10:10a The thief cometh to steal, and to kill, and to destroy Sin Destroys The Human Spirit! (Gods image)

Pr. 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD But sin extinguishes (Kills) it! (Ro. 6:23) Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou The spirit is shalt not eat of it: in the day that thou eatest thereof dead in sins. Eph. 2:1 Soul (Contaminated) Body (Sensual) Theshalt

wages of sin is death Ro. 6:23 thou surely die. This is the Natural condition of all: For all have sinned Ro. 3:23 The Natural Person: 1 Cor 2:14 the natural man (psychikos: Body, Soul)

receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God Is Spiritually: Dead. Eph. 2:1 Deceived. Mt. 7:21-23; 2 Cor. 4:4 The Natural Person: John 3:3 Ye must be born again Gal. 4:4-6 God sent Christ to redeem them that are under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sonsGod sent

for the Spirit of His son into our hearts. Ro. 8:16 the Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. The Spiritual Person: 1 Cor 2:15,16 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things (Pneumatikos: Regenerated, Spirit led.) A. Allows Gods Spirit to Guide them. John 16:13 the Spirit of truth, will guide you into all truth: Eph. 5:18 be filled with the Spirit

plro: filled up, under the influence of. 2. The B. Spiritual Person: 1 Cor 2:15,16 Allows Gods Spirit to Grow them. Heb. 12:1-17; 2 Peter 3:18 1) 1 Th 5:19 Quench

not the Spirit. Doesnt resist His influence! 2) Eph 4:30 grieve not the Spirit of God Doesnt rebel against His directions! C. The Spiritual Mind (soul) must be developed. a) This process involves partnership with God to purify our souls. 1 Peter 1:22 ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit

Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devilpurify your hearts. Jm 4:7-8 Spirit Soul (cleansed) Body (Consecrated) As we do this the flesh (corrupted soul) loses influence and the spirit gains strength. (Influence)

Romans 12:1,2 1. The Natural Person: 1 Cor 2:14 2. The Spiritual Person: 1 Cor 2:15 3. The Carnal Person: 1 Cor 3:1-3 I, brethren, (Adelphos: from a common womb) could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. Webster: relating to the physical Sarkikos: temporary, fleshly

3. The Carnal Person: A. Lacks Spiritual Growth! 1 Cor 3:1-3 Vs 1,2 Even as unto Babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat:

for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 1) Little appetite for the spiritual/eternal. B. Lacks Spiritual discernment. we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. For when ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God, and are become such as have need of milk,

and not of strong meat. Heb. 5:11-14 1) Spiritually anemic! C. Lacks Spiritual application. strong meat belongeth to them that by reason of use have their senses (perception) exercised (gymnaz: trained) to discern both Heb. 5:12,14

good (kalos: inherently Valuable) and evil. (kakos: inherently Worthless) 1) What you dont use, you Lose! Jms 1:22-26 be doersand not hearers only The lack of Spiritual Growth, Discernment and Application leads to a D. Sensual (Temporary) focus. Vs 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

For all practical purposes they behave as non Christians! 1 Jn 2:15-17 love not the worldthe world passes away, and the lusts thereof World: Kosmos: decoration, adornment from komizo: to tend or provide for. 1) This affects (distorts) their values. Mt. 6:21 where your treasure is, there shall your heart be also

Gal. 5:16,17 Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh The Carnal mind is more influenced by the Philosophy of this world than by the Promptings of Gods Spirit. Ro 8:7-8 the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not

subject (hypotasso) to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Phil 3:18-19 Spirit Quenched/Grieved Soul Mind earthly things Body whose

god is their belly many walk, ... Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. Conclusion: Until you identify your

desired Destination, And your actual Location, Any Direction will be ultimately pointless! Conclusion: Once you know your Destination, and Location, You can begin to plot a wise course of

Which picture most accurately describes you? The Natural person: 1 Cor 2:14 the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: because they are spiritually discerned. Their spirit is dead in Soul (Contaminated) Body (Corrupted) trespasses and sins.

Eph. 2:1 The Spiritual Person (Ro. 8:6) For to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Quench not the Spirit. 1 Thess. 5:19 Ro 8:1-2 There is now no condemnation to them which are Spirit (Dominant) in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Soul (Clear) Body (Controlled)

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. The Carnal person. Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Spirit Quenched/

Grieved Soul Mind earthly things Body whose god is their belly Made By Shaddai Upon Diabolus, For The Regaining Of The Town Of Mansoul.

By John Bunyan 1682 (Where are you right now spiritually?) Natural (lost) Person. 2 Cor 4:4 Spiritual Person? Ro. 8:6 (Allowing Gods Spirit to Guide and Grow you?) Carnal Person? Ro. 8:7 Saved but stuck in or dangerously drifting toward temporary harbors.

You have a limited time to settle this! Luke 13:23-24 Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for manywill seek to enter in, and shall not be able. Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up,

and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer I know you not whence ye are depart from me! Theres no time in Eternity, to Change your Destiny!

2 Cor 6:2 behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Heb 3:7-8 The Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts
