Controlling That Thing' You're in!
CAN YOU CONTROL THAT "THING," YOU ARE IN ? THIS WAS ONE OF THE SUBJECTS WE TALKED ABOUT AT THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS. ............................................
In the context of our body, or our tent. Do you know about your tent & what you are supposed to do with it. look at
2 Korinthians 5:1-10, but firstly what does "TENT mean in the hebrew. 168 'ohel o'-hel from 166; a tent (as clearly conspicuous from a distance):--covering, (dwelling)(place), home, tabernacle, tent.
2 Korinthians 5:!-10 For we know that if the tent of our earthly house is destroyed, we have a building from Yahuah, a house not made with hands, everlasting in shamayim. For indeed in this we groan, longing to put on our dwelling which is from heaven, so that, having put it on, we shall not be found naked. For indeed, we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we wish to put it off, but to put on the other, so that what is to die might be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this same purpose is Yahuah,who has given us the ruach as a pledge of what is to come. Therefore being always of good courage, and knowing that we are at home in the body we are absent from the Master - for we walk by belief, not by sight - We are of good courage, and are well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Master. So we also make it our aim to be well-pleasing to Him, whether being at home, or being away from home. For we all have to appear before the judgement seat of Mashiak, in order for each one to receive according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
In Joshua/Yahusha chapters 6 and 7 whilst Yisharal were going through the desert, they were told by Yahuah to conquer this city of Yericho, because this city did filthy things with idolatry.They sacrificed their first born to idols & stuffed them into the foundations of the city walls, the youngest were used in the same way for the city gates Yisharal was told to take all their silver, gold, bronze and iron. this was to be put in the treasury at the tabernacle of Yahuah. Yahuah said that no man was to ever build a city there again or they would be cursed because of what they did to the children.
Yisharal was to battle the city of Ai next, but they lost that battle miserably, because some one in Yisharal had stolen from the booty of Yericho causing a curse on Yisharal. Yahuah told Yahusha/Joshua to call the clan leaders together then the family leaders.
Remember there were 3 million people in the congregation so it was an arduous task. Finally came the family of Akan who were the culprits,every thing they had was destroyed with fire & they were stoned to death for causing Yisharal's failure.
When we look at Corinthians we can see that the desires of the world in and of our flesh are something Yahusha detests. We do not need them in our tent, tabernacle, body, life,as He supplies all our needs. These desires will end up controlling us, manifesting in the body the behaviour which is not of Turah.
ARE YOU CONTROLLING THE THING WHICH YOU ARE IN ?
