As a triune being that is born again, you have the option of occupying three separate realms simultaneously. If you spend too much time in the soulish realm, which is the flesh realm, the devil will attempt to bring hell into your life. Look at the general condition of the world, they are a mess. What are their traits? They must deal with depression by using a variety of drugs. They are self-centered, they believe they are the most important person in the world. They love to be the “victim” and therefore everybody owes them something. Finally, they have no regard for God but they assume to speak for Him.
2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: From such turn away.
These folks come out of the world and nowadays the world is in the churches of Jesus Christ. They operate in the soulish realm which in the Greek is Psookay. We get our word psychology from this Greek word, which means a study of the mind. This is the realm where the devil is confined to, we can imitate God in this realm. Folks who live in this realm live under an umbrella of deception, the truth is very foreign to them. The born-again believer has been translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son. He can spend most of his life in this kingdom, however it is inevitable, he must also live in the soulish or flesh realm.
John 17:14-15 My followers are not of this world, even as I am not of this world. I pray you not take them out of the world but rather keep them from the evil.
Because we are yet flesh and blood we must live in this world but God equips us to live untainted by its demonic forces. At the time of your new birth, the Lord offers you His shield, it’s called the shield of truth. God’s Word , which is truth, is the devil’s worst nightmare. He can’t do anything with a person who knows the truth, his best deceptive tactics won’t work. But he is a good union devil and he never stops trying to lead a believer into one of his snares. Wanna disappoint the devil? Don’t believe a word he says, hold fast to the truth. The devil cannot come into our realm, but we can enter his and have complete authority over him.
John 6:63 It is the Holy Spirit that makes alive; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
In God’s kingdom our flesh means nothing, it cannot accomplish anything in God’s way of living. God’s Words are powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword. His Word can move mountains, heal the sick and raise the dead. Our life is more than happy meals and designer jeans, our life is the beginning of eternity with our Lord in heaven. His Word puts us in the kingdom and His Word keeps us there, living as if we are already in heaven. All of those who live in the kingdom of God can talk with Him anytime they want to. Folks who are yet to enter in think we are crazy when we say we can hear from God. We are in the kingdom of God and we won’t apologize to anyone.
You are now free to move about the kingdom.

When the Word of the Lord came to me, I began to be built up.
God's will is deposited in my spirit, and my soul is in agreement.
The Word decides my thoughts, I ignore how I feel about them.
I prosper before I actually prosper, the Word is working mightily in me.
I will reap what I sow, and I will have what I say.
