Burning Holy Spirit (“Weekend At Burnie’s”)

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.

Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.
Galatians 5:24-26 NLT
http://bible.com/116/gal.5.24-26.NLT

(Like movie “Weekend At Burnie’s” -don’t play & pretend & force dead body -inner man- to look & act like it is still alive. 

Once The same Spirit, that raised Christ from the dead, comes into us we are regenerated.
We are possessed by His Spirit & have  New Life now, dead to sin.)

SHORT CLIP FROM THE MOVIE “Weekend At Burnie’s”


(Explanation  – rich guy dies, 2 men afraid they will get blame so do all they can to manipulate this dead body to convince everyone else he is still alive -how we, who are dead to sin, may try to bring back to life our old ways, play games with God, use His name in vein & to make ourselves look better. We can go along with what the world offers and become a slave to it & our own desires…rather than enjoy real freedom in Christ,  enjoy life & give Him the glory for all the great things we can enjoy in this life without sin (pools, drink, food, games, boating, going to the ocean and enjoy the great outdoors).

That kind of “nature” is enjoyed more when we have a New Nature inside and we can know that heaven is going to be even more beautiful but we must

1.] Die spiritually (God’s will taking over our wil)

2.] Know that it is after that eventually we die  physical  but we enter into the “afterlife” as we call it, Heaven.

HERE IS ANOTHER THE MOVIE CLIP:

So, be alive to Christ & dead to yourself,  don’t insist on your own ways, even if you know you’re living for God, be Christ-like,  remembering He alone is the judge.

Alive inside,
Beetle

  1. In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead.

    And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands.

    This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations—

    “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.
