A false notion of God’s love has established in you some level of comfort about your sin. You must snap out of this superficial mind-set and begin to exert your will in obedience. The enemy within wants you to continue in the underlying conspiracy against God; to be comfortable with letting “him” live on within you. As you read this booklet you will find this constant trite reaction against what I am writing; “All right, all right! I know I’m a sinner. Enough, enough already. Let’s just get on with stating the religious formula that makes all this bad stuff go away so I can start feeling good about myself again”. If you do not get serious about gaining discernment of your sin nature it will remain your master (Gen.4:7).
Adam sinned he wanted to hide his true state and not deal with all the deep ramifications and consequences. Can you imagine the grief of what Adam must have felt immediately after he fell from God-consciousness into self-consciousness?! Losing the winning lottery ticket for a 50 million dollar jackpot is a trite comparison to the sense of loss that Adam experienced. Instead of walking in his immortal body and caught up in heavenly and eternal glory, he became painfully obsessed with feelings, instincts, moods and physical aches and hurts. Instead of walking about in the bliss of immortal life and eternal fellowship with God, Adam was terribly aware of his deplorable, lost, aimless, lonely and depressed nature. This is what you wake up with every morning. YOUR NATURE IS THE REASON FOR YOUR DEEP-SEATED DEPRESSION (Ps.42:2-6/2Cor.5:2).
|The nature within is like a fire raging to be fed.|
