Man was created a triune being. You are a spirit, you possess a soul (mind, will and emotions), and you live in a body. Traditionally, all men are in tune with body and soul which make up the flesh. God and the things of God are a mystery because the natural man has no access into this realm.
1 Corinthians 2:14 The natural man cannot receive the things of God; for they are foolishness unto him; he cannot comprehend them because they must be spiritually discerned.
Every honest Christian can use this Scripture to locate himself spiritually. If you think a Bible doctrine is not true, you could yet be a natural man. A lot of Christians believe that tithing is foolish, only eighteen percent of all believers give God His tithe. If you do not believe that Jesus heals today, you’re a natural man in that area. Jesus said that man does not live by bread alone, so He must have made a way for the natural man to breach the Kingdom.
Hebrews 4:12 The Word of God is alive and powerful, sharper than a two edged sword, dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow.
The only way for a believer to make the distinction between the spirit and his soul is to accept and believe God’s uncompromised Word. Before the Word is accepted, man does not make a distinction between the spirit and his soul. When the devil speaks to a man, he speaks to his soul. We call these thoughts and ideas. When God speaks to a man, He speaks to the spirit. My words are spirit and they must be spiritually discerned. Once a man understands this spiritual law, he can identify the thoughts of the devil and the voice of God.
Galatians 6:8 He that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the spirit will of the spirit reap life everlasting.
He who hears thoughts in his mind/soul and acts on them is sowing to the flesh. The devil is providing the seed and unlearned men sow on his behalf, but reap the devil’s harvest. Those who sow to the spirit sow the Word of God that was deposited in their spirit. The soul and the spirit are inseparable but function totally different and in separate realms. When a man dies physically, his body is laid in the ground, but his soul and spirit go to be with his Father forever. The soul and spirit can have a war of the “wills”. Jesus said the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Which ever one you feed the most will be the stronger of the two.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.
Jesus was trying to help the Jews. They were more in tune with the devil than the law. They thought they were agents of the law; the devil convinced them that they had to kill Jesus. When they died their soul and spirit would go to spend eternity with their father the devil. Jesus came to save these men so it was not His will that they die and go to hell. The devil can create strongholds in a man’s soul/mind and the only recourse he would have is the spirit. Men have a hard time entering into the realm of the spirit but Jesus will do whatever He needs to do to help all men breach the Kingdom.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
