making the connection
“The carnal mind fights, absolutely fights, against the Spirit of God. That’s what is happening in your minds and why you are facing these questions‚ dear friends of Mine. The carnal mind just cannot understand the things of the spirit. The things of the spirit don’t make sense to the carnal mind. They seem illogical, wrong, off on a tangent, and unreasonable.”
“In the carnal world, things are solidified into categories. In the carnal world you can’t be a woman because you are a man, and there are no two ways about it. So if you’re thinking in your carnal mind that you have to be a woman, that doesn’t make sense and it’s a turnoff. Basically, you can deduce that if you’re getting turned off by the fact that I want you to be a woman in spirit, you’re thinking with your carnal mind.”
“I want you to make the leap. No, you don’t have to make it, and I will still love you if you choose not to. But I want to make the point clear that if you don’t make the leap into the mind of the Spirit, well, you have done just that-you haven’t made the leap out of your carnal mind. I’m not condemning you for this‚ but you do, for your own sake, need to realize that you are being led by your carnal mind in that decision.”
“So if you don’t make the leap of faith into the spiritual mind, it is very important to realize that you are choosing the carnal mind to think and view things from, and that there is a world beyond it that is completely different. The spiritual realm is true; it has another dimension to it that you just can’t understand in your natural, carnal mind. It’s very important for you to realize this truth, otherwise you open yourself up to strong delusion; you start believing something that isn’t true in order to justify your choice in your thinking.”
leave the carnal mind behind
“It’s simply important for you to know that there are worlds beyond your carnal mind that are open to you if you want to grow and take that leap.
It’s difficult, I understand. But it’s very possible, and if you make that leap you will receive strength of the spirit that will be like meat to your growth, adding muscles for the times you have ahead of you.
That’s one reason I’ve invited you into this realm of the spirit even now while you’re in the flesh, because by doing so it will be like working out with weights and growing your muscles so that the battles ahead will be easier for you.”
Having a Problem…try carnal mindedness
“There’s a gap between the spiritual reality and your carnal mind, and the only entranceway there is by getting into the vessel of faith and making that step or leap of faith, whatever it is to you. It doesn’t really matter whether it’s a step or a leap, because the vessel (keys) of faith can bridge that gap no matter how big it is. The main point is that it takes faith. Your own carnal thoughts and reasoning will never bridge the gap.”
