The scriptures in Romans 8v1-10 are written to the believers. If you are reading the Bible, does not mean you set your mind according to the Bible. If you quote the Bible, does mean you set your mind according to the Bible. What it means to set your mind according to the Bible is, the very word of God determines your decisions; the very word of God determines where you stand and where you are not standing. This is one aspect.
Another aspect which is the main focus of this message is the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit fills a man, the man is transformed. You will see the difference. Apostle Edmonds said he is not carried away by the tongues people speak. The Lord Jesus taught in Mathews 7v 16; “Ye shall know them by their fruits”. We should follow people according to the fruit not according to what they say. So, it is very important that as you are walking in the spirit and walking according to God, you need to know if your mind is set to the flesh or your mind is set to the spirit.
How do you know a mind is set to the spirit or set to the flesh? The scripture is very clear. The Bible says in Romans 8v6;”For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Have you found yourself going against the things of God? Have you found yourself not accepting certain things in the Bible? Your mind is set to the flesh. For example, some people believe Holy Spirit today cannot make people speak in tongues. You already set your mind where you belong to. If you do not believe in unknown tongues or what the scripture says, your mind already set before you.
It is ok if you disagree with Biblical truth but in your life when the Holy Spirit wants to lead you to treasure and when you do not believe it, you get the opposite. That is very dangerous. You have time to learn doctrines and accept them but in life-walk you don’t have time. If you do not believe in divine healing, you will die a sick man. If you don’t believe in divine prosperity, you will die average man never rising to the potential God wants you to be. If you do not believe in divine protection, you will only live in mercy of your senses of medical science.
God has given us abundant provision for us to live by and these things are accessible by faith. When the Spirit takes over a man’s soul or a man’s life, the man is transformed. Don’t try to test a man who the spirit has taken over the soul. Don’t put down a church or a ministry the spirit has taken over. The wild response of God would be whenever you touch God’s anointed, He responds in an unusual way.
In Acts Chapter six. seven men were picked with the criteria that was amazing; men of honest report, full of Holy Ghost and wisdom. How do we know someone is filled with the Holy Spirit? It is not by speaking in tongues they speak, but the Spirit controls them.
Ephesians 5v18; “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit” When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will experience the power.(Acts 1v8). There are people who speak in tongues for a long time, but their life carries so much contradictions. Don’t be carried away by those tongues they speak. The first thing that should be evident in a man’s life that the spirit is taken over is power. When Holy Spirit takes over, no matter how many Sauls (people like king Saul) come against you, there is limit to which they can go.
When the Holy Spirit takes control, your family gets into heaven. Your spouse will experience another man or woman in you. In 1 Samuel 17 , the little boy David spoke to a man of war. How could you understand that? When the spirit takes over your soul, you will be changed.
In Genesis 20:1-16, when king Abimelech took Sarah, strange things started to happen in Abimelech’s house. God told “Restore the man’s wife; for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you shall live.” When the spirit of God takes over, He raises standards like war against the acts of the enemy. However, if you are filled with the spirit, it doesn’t mean that the enemy will not come at you. Actually you are a focus; the enemy will not leave.
You should also know that when you are supposed to be acting on the word of God, you are not supposed to be depending on the Holy Spirit. When you are supposed to depending on the Holy Spirit, you are not supposed to be acting on the word of God at that time.
