There is no condemnation to those who are in Jesus Christ, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Jesus Christ has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
But you are not in the the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His spirit who dwells in you…(Roman 8:1-11)
Our Pastor, spoke on (1 Timothy 4:1-5) yesterday which reads..
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
He started with with false teachers and deceiving spirits. He spoke about the entertainment of today. That in movies, and music are deceiving spirits of demons. That some nominal Christians will be deceived and depart from the faith. Apostasy will reign from the first coming of Christ, reaching a climax shortly before He returns. Movies are full of violence and cursing, sex, you name it. It is in everything. The Lord’s name is used as a cliché and expression of surprise like wow. His name is made trivial. There is no thought of Him what so ever when someone says this.
He made mention of the super bowl show. That Beyonce admits to being possessed by an alter ego Sasha Fierce. The whole show had in your face demonic symbols. See for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9w9K2AiMTI
This was just the first part of his sermon on these verses. As a born again, saved Christian, I can’t watch or listen to music like this. Many people are unknowingly being lead by false teachers with demonic spirits and doctrines into a place you can never return from. Don’t let God harden your heart. You may be His and just need to repent your sins now. He will change your life.
