In this series, we have been discussing the Clash of the Titans, in a Born Again person. In the case of a person who is NOT Born Again, there will be no clash, as there is only One Leader and that leader is the Soul. However, the moment an individual gets Born Again, the friction and the conflict begins. The Soul/Flesh will try to dominate and eliminate the new Spirit that has been born within you. Remember the Pistachio story where the outer shell tries to suppress and dominate the inner fruit?
The main reason for this Clash is the diametrically opposite WORLD VIEW. The Soul will not even be able to understand the perspective of the Spirit. When people read through the sermon on the Mount, though they realize that the sermon is right, it is next to impossible for them to follow it. That is how diametrically opposite is the Soul vs the Spirit.
But do you know what is the end result of this conflict for a TRULY BORN AGAIN Person? The Spirit rules over the Soul and gradually transforms the Soul to such a level that the Spirit and the Soul have the same WORLD VIEW. They both become like the needles of the clock at 12:00 Noon. They both will end up in the same direction. That is why we have to do this Daily Sacrifice of pushing the Soul/Body to be aligned with the Spirit.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.Rom 12:1-2
This is a very time taking process and when the process kicks in, the Soul loses out on its World View, slowly and gradually. In this episode, we will discuss a particular World View which lies at the centre of the Conflict.
Money and Riches
Yes, you guessed it right. This is a topic which causes many Soul Driven people to dislike when they are confronted with the Spiritual World View. I am just going to explain it solely on the basis of Scripture.
The Hamster Wheel Syndrome
The Soul loves Security of the Self. Being Self-Centric, you should not expect any different from the Soul. It is made that way. Therefore, the Soul drives you to accumulate as much money and riches that you can. It always raises the bar and makes you feel underprepared for your financial wants. When you see your neighbours accumulating things, you feel left behind in the race. In the process, you lose your gaze on Eternity. Seldom you realize that you are in the grip of full-blown deceit. Let us turn to the Parable of the Sower and see what Jesus says about the seed that fell among the thorns. Notice the text that has been boldened.
18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.Mark 4:18-19
Interestingly TPM Ministers does their part of choking it more. Every time they associate BLESSINGS OF GOD with Money and Riches, they ensure that their believers do not get off the Hamster Wheel. The Desires get bigger and bigger. Their folks work harder and greedier for this perishing World. The crooked Doctrine of Tithe promising 100 fold More Money ensures that these people continue to live within the Hamster Wheel and get greedier by the day. Rarely do they realize that their lazy Ministers are taking them for a ride to Hell for their own comfortable life. The TPM Believers are under a deception that by contributing to TPM’s Wealth, they are helping God in spreading the Gospel. Nothing can be farther from the truth.
The Soul loves to take control over situations to ensure the supposed Security requirement is met. It wastes the entire lifetime trying to secure what God had already secured for us. It cant get more deluded than this.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?Matt 6:25-27
It’s about TPM Believers and their White Clad Ministers that Jesus spoke in a Parable about the Foolish man in Luke 12
18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’
21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”Luke 12:18-21
Hamster Wheel is a Great Deception, you are destined for Hell as long as you are pressured to remain in that Wheel. GET OUT OF THAT WHEEL.
The Camel Problem
Now when you spend your entire life to accumulate riches for yourself in the Hamster Wheel, your Spirit becomes dormant. As long as you were following the desires of the Soul, you effectively put the Spirit to starvation and kill it. Do you think such people will enter the Kingdom of God? You may get a very good funeral service as you have been faithfully paying a tenth of your income to the Clergy. However, these are not going to matter to God. As you keep accumulating Riches just as the foolish man, you become more worldly in your World View. You keep thinking just about this temporal life. Therefore, you start loving all those possessions which you earned and bought. The stronger your bond with these possessions, the farther, you are from the Kingdom of God.
Look at how Jesus himself says how hard it is for the rich to enter into the kingdom of God.
23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?Mark 10:23-26
Check the cartoon. As you know that you are failing the conditions for entry into the kingdom of God, you start relaxing the cardinal rule with some excuses supported by your Clergy. Sad to say that Jesus cannot be bribed as you do with your clergy. The rule is already set. The Only way you can enter the Kingdom of God is to delink yourself from the possessions that you had accumulated and your bonding with it. The Gate to the Kindom is not getting any wider for you. It is the same for you as is with your poor neighbour. Your poor neighbour can shed his little possessions and his love for it much quicker than you, as he carries only a little. Had you shared your possessions with him when he needed it, both of you could have gotten through the gate much easily. But Woe to them that are led by the Soul, it does not allow you to part with your worldly possessions.
Though TPM Ministers claim to be apostles, they have absolutely NO CLUE of how the REAL Apostles dealt with Money. Look at how Paul speaks about Mutually helping them that are in need. He is not speaking about buying land and building bigger Faith Homes for himself.
13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time, your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, 15 as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”[b]2 Cor 8:13-15
There is NO EXCEPTION FOR ANYBODY. CAMELS DO NOT ENTER. You will have to shed your load and squeeze yourself through the eye of the Needle. God and Mammon are opposites(Matthew 6:24).
You would have realized by now, how upside-down is the world we live in. Our World View is controlled by Soulish environment. We live as Soul Driven people trying to be like the Joneses of the world. As our World View is Soul Driven, we do not even realize that we are shutting ourselves from the Kingdom of God. Your TPM Ministers are aiding to this blindness because they themselves are also Soulish. They are making you PERFECT FOR THIS UPSIDE-DOWN WORLD by EXPLOITING YOUR ANXIOUSNESS about your temporal life. They are in competition with other churches in the world.
There will be a time where you would wish that you could swap places with your poor neighbour “Lazarus “. But then it would be too late. If you could ever talk to Michael Schumacher, I am sure he will gladly be willing to part with all his Billions and awards and championship trophies to swap places with you. Do you really want that to happen with you when you cross over to eternity?
It’s High time we stop outsourcing our Spiritual Life to IMPOSTERS IN WHITE and take back what we have lost. Others cannot be held responsible for your spiritual life. You are held accountable for yourself. As long as you do not get off that Hamster Wheel and do not detach from the Camel that you have accumulated over the years, you have a VERY big problem at hand.
