Psalm 27: 7
We know that the Lord gives us according to the desire of our heart, not the pleasure of material pleasures nor even according to our will. But here David has a burning desire to live in the house of the Lord. “Man will not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4: 4) Our inner being must be in unity with our outer being.
The inner man is spiritual but the outer man has contrary desires.
Ephesians 4: 17-24
The inner man created by the Word of God is different from the carnal man. So this is the necessity of the new birth. When you are born again, the spiritual man takes over the carnal man God is not carnal but He is Spirit. Man was created in the image of God, that is to say, Spirit. God wants us to be in the spiritual realm. We must have a renewal in our thoughts to get out of our carnal thoughts. Today, people are in fear, in a psychosis because they are afraid of losing what they have. We have plans for the natural man. In fact, we don't see very far. Solomon was wise, he saw things the right way. “Vanity of vanities, says Ecclesiastes, vanity of vanities, everything is vanity. (Ecclesiastes 1: 2) The Egyptians had riches, they wanted to dominate on Earth and they succeeded. Their personal ambition was to clean up the other but they never defeated death. Man is afraid of losing something, he is afraid of death. Even today with this crisis, we see men in a psychosis because they are afraid of death. God has given those who believe it a renewal of thoughts. We are no longer attached to his things. We recognized our state of weakness. “Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38) Life is not in the flesh but in the Word of God. Everything that defiles a man comes from the heart, which is why He said, "I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. The righteous are not afraid of bad news because they have received salvation through the death of Jesus Christ. When we receive this Jesus, we receive justification by faith, that is to say, the new birth. We are before the righteous because we received Him as our personal Savior.
Romans 8: 28-31
It’s God who justifies you, not a man. It’s not you who say you’re born again, but it’s the Lord who shows it. The disciples lived with Jesus, they saw His death and His resurrection. They were real witnesses.
Acts 10: 24-43 / John 17: 16-21
We became believers because we experienced Him. We received what the apostles gave us.
Galatians 3: 1
The apostles introduced us to the thing, they depicted the scene to us. We see the painting and our hearts are touched. When we talk about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we really see how He was crucified. We do not follow fables but the truth. When we listen to the Word with our inner being, we are transported into another dimension. We experience that Jesus is alive. So what would we be afraid of? “If God is for us, who will be against us? "(Romans 8:31) Solomon tasted all that is possible on this Earth but in the end, he said," Fear God and keep his commandments. This is what every man should do. (Ecclesiastes 12:13) When you are spiritual, you see from afar. We can bring you all the misfortunes, you are not worried. What we care about is our soul. We have something different within us: faith. "But without faith it is impossible to please him. (Hebrews 11: 6) The elders showed us what they did by faith. Impossible things were made possible by faith.
Psalm 91: 1-7
As children of God, we have protection. The Bible is not from the past, God is always capable. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13: 8) Our God is present, He is the God of the present. We are called, not to nourish the flesh, but to nourish the spirit. When you receive the Lord Jesus Christ in your life, you abandon the flesh. Men want to rise, to be higher than God, but God has belittled Nebucanedtsar. Humility precedes glory. Men thought they knew but this crisis shows that man is nothing. All this fear, this confinement is happening in the world.
Luke 2: 1
Why was the whole Earth involved? When God is doing something, He does everything to get it in place. The angel Gabriel visited Mary in Galilee but it was said "And you, Bethlehem Ephrata, Little among the thousands of Judah, From you will go out for me He who will rule over Israel, And whose origin goes back to ancient times, To the days of eternity. (Micah 5: 2) Mary never thought of going to Bethlehem but it was in the Holy Scriptures. Mary was awaiting childbirth in Galilee. There is only one supreme authority: Jesus Christ. The angels came to see the shepherds because it was a lamb who was to come. The name of Jesus is the highest. With what is happening now, the world will have a different look, your way of living will change. We have to put ourselves together and reposition ourselves in the things of the Word of God.
Daniel 9: 1-23
Daniel prayed for the greatness of God and showed the weakness of the people. Daniel touched the heart of God. When man understands this, the Word is a light on our path. We have a privilege to have the Word of God. In the evening time, the light will appear. "Is there a misfortune in a city, without the Lord being its author? (Amos 3: 6) In these days we must be aware of what the Lord is doing.
