My beloved sisters in the Lord, I pray that you remain completely hid in Christ and that you continue to walk in the fullness of His calling over your life.
Have you ever wondered about that person that is always talking inside of you? Erroneously, many have refered to him as the devil, especially when the conversation is unpleasant and appears ungodly. We tend to say things like, “I know it was the enemy speaking to me and not God because God does not speak that way…” But let me ask you this question, ” how is the enemy able to speak to your heart so frequently when you are now in Christ”? How are you able to recognise the enemy speaking inside of you and yet unable to cast him out? How have you been able to allow him bed and breakfast “in you” so much so that he takes charge of you every now and again?
The truth , my dear, is that it is not the enemy that speaks inside of you if you have received Christ wholeheartedly into your life but the “unseen you” which is not nortured and therefore left exposed to the deceits of the devil! It is “the You” who has not yet been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God i.e. Jesus , who came to show us the way, the truth and the life that we ought to live! The bible refers to “this you” as the hidden man of the heart! Your heart personified indeed!
Proverbs 27:19 says: As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.
So often, man focuses on the outward man (i.e. the seen man) and not the “hidden man” because of man’s sin that was birth from the foundations of time – i.e. the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life! For the unredeemed man, his desire and focus is solely on “what is seen”!
This “seen man” is referred to as the Physical or human man while the “unseen man” is referred to as the spiritual man. Therefore, when you hear those conversations that are going on inside of you, there are the conversations of the spiritual man and where they do not appear christ-like, it means your spirit man is dead to the power that became ours through the sufferings, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.
The spirit of God has impressed it strongly upon my heart for this season that this truth must be made known to the saints for it is this “Spiritual man” that will be judged and not the human man. The human man is dust and as the word of God tells us, it would return to dust i.e from whence it came. But the spiritual man remains before God continually and will be exposed on the day of judgement! Colossians 3:3 tells us that when we die to the human man (i.e the flesh), our life is now hid in Christ. Therefore, all you do is before Him always and will be made manifest (revealed to others) at His glorious appearing.
This message is a very important one and I have no intention to rush the delivery of it. May I humbly ask that you meditate on the above revelation of God’s word so that you will be well prepared to receive ( precept upon precept) the deliverance God is bringing to us during this season of our lives. I love you with the love of Christ so very much.
