Genesis 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Obedience Is By The Spirit
.. Same problem with Israel – Israel failed her sonship because she didn’t want to grow up and God said ‘ you’re a stiff necked people. ‘ Human nature doesn’t change, nothing changes. This is the result of what happened when Adam and Eve fell, but thank God through Jesus Christ He’s reconciling us because Jesus obeyed unto death so we now can [obey] through the empowerment of The Spirit as He has come back to us to dwell in us..
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
.. You are not your own any more, you have been purchased – bought with a price for the purpose to walk in covenant and obedience with Almighty God. And this is how He’s doing it, this is how He works..
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Created For Obedience
.. Because God is Sovereign, He never makes a mistake, everything is perfect – absolute perfection in how He works with us in getting us to yield to His way – His will. He’ll go down to the minutest detail in you life at times in order to get you to obey Him. You see obedience will get you to experience the joy of your Father’s heart. You obey Him and you will instinctively experience your Father’s joy and heart and blessing over you life. I’ve experienced it – I’ve experienced what it does for Him..
Don’t Fight And Resist
The greatest thing you and I can do for our heavenly Father is to obey Him and not argue and resist, that is what gives Him the greatest joy and pleasure. And you will know and experience it – trust me. And the more you experience that the more you want to do that for Him. Don’t fight Him any more, don’t resist Him any more – it’s not worth it, it’s nothing but a hindrance and it’s going to stop you maturing and growing spiritually. Maturity is vital now in these last days as the Sons of God are coming forth for His glory.. ..
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
John 7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
