ON TODAY'S EPISODE, WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT HOW TO BE FREE FROM CARNALITY AND HOW TO LIVE A SUPERNATURAL LIFE! DON'T GO ANYWHERE! WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK ON "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!" [MUSIC] KB: MEDITATE IN THE WORD! MEDITATE IN THE WORD DAY AND NIGHT! A SUPERNATURAL TURN! A SUPERNATURAL THRUST! A SUPERNATURAL SHIFT! A SUPERNATURAL SHIFT! WE ARE IN JERUSALEM ON SITE! THE SAME SPIRIT THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU AND IT SHALL QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODY! KB: HELLO FRIENDS AND WELCOME TO "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!" THIS IS DR KYNAN AND I'M VERY EXCITED TO BE WITH YOU AS ALWAYS! YOU KNOW WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON THIS SHOW FOR ADDRESSING ISSUES THAT SOMETIMES WE DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH OR MAYBE WE FIND A BIT CHALLENGING

AND TODAY I WANNA ADDRESS SOMETHING THAT EVERY BELIEVER DEALS WITH, EVERY BELIEVER FACES BUT MAYBE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO REALLY WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND IT I WANNA TALK ABOUT FREEDOM FROM CARNALITY! FREEDOM FROM CARNALITY! PAUL THE APOSTLE WROTE IN ROMANS THE 8TH CHAPTER HE SAYS THAT, "THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD FOR IT IS NEITHER SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE THEREFORE THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD" THERE YOU HAVE IT, FOLKS! YOU CANNOT PLEASE GOD WITH A CARNAL MIND! WHAT DO WE MEAN BY A CARNAL MIND? WHAT IS CARNALITY AND WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH YOU AND I? YOU SEE THE BIBLE IS VERY, VERY CLEAR WHEN IT TELLS US THE MIND THAT WE OUGHTA HAVE! THE BIBLE SAYS, "THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH DO MIND THE THINGS OF THE FLESH AND THEY THAT ARE IN THE SPIRIT MIND THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT

" YOU KNOW A LOT OF TIMES WE HEAR THIS TERMINOLOGY AND I CALL IT CHRISTIANESE CHRISTIANESE IT'S THINGS THAT A LOT OF CHRISTIANS HEAR AND UNDERSTAND BUT MAYBE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT SPIRITUALLY INCLINED MAYBE THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THESE THINGS OR MAYBE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN IN CHURCH A LONG TIME WHAT IS CARNALITY? WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN? WHAT IS THE BIBLE TALKING ABOUT? WELL WHEN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT CARNALITY IT'S TALKING ABOUT THE PROCLIVITY TO ENGAGE THE 5 SENSES IT'S FROM THE GREEK WORD "SARX

" "SARX" OR "SARKIKOS" IT MEANS THE ENGAGEMENT OR THE PROCLIVITY TO BE INCLINED TO THE 5 SENSES THAT'S TOUCH THAT'S TASTE THAT'S SMELL

THAT'S SIGHT THAT'S HEARING THE BIBLE TELLS US IN 1ST JOHN, THE 2ND CHAPTER, IT SAYS, "LOVE NOT THE WORLD, NEITHER THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THE WORLD FOR IF ANY MAN LOVE THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM FOR ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD, THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THE LUST OF THE EYES, AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE IS OF THE WORLD AND THE WORLD PASSES AWAY

BUT HE THAT DOES THE WILL OF GOD SHALL ABIDE FOREVER" SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE WORLD WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE EARTH WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE PLANET WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE WORLD SYSTEM IT'S TALKING ABOUT THE SYSTEM OF THIS AGE WHICH IS GOVERNED BY THE 5 SENSES

THE SYSTEM OF THIS AGE WHICH IS GOVERNED BY THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH, BY THE LUSTS OF THE EYES, BY THE PRIDE OF LIFE DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M SAYING? SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE WORLD WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A PLACE OR AN ECOSYSTEM GOVERNED BY THE SENSES OR THE SENSUAL REALM SENSUAL MEANING ENGAGED IN THE SENSES AND SO WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THIS, THIS IS VERY, VERY, VERY PROFOUND! BEFORE WE GOT BORN AGAIN, BELOVED, WE WERE CONTROLLED BY OUR SENSES WE WERE CONTROLLED BY OUR SENSE OF DESIRE

WHEN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH IT'S TALKING ABOUT THE DESIRE TO GRATIFY TO GRATIFY YOUR APPETITES WHEN IT TALKS ABOUT THE LUST OF THE EYES IT'S TALKING ABOUT YOUR PROCLIVITY TO GRAVITATE TOWARD THINGS THAT YOU SEE WHEN IT TALKS ABOUT THE PRIDE OF LIFE IT'S TALKING ABOUT YOUR PROCLIVITY TO BE VAIN THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT CONTROLLED US BEFORE WE WERE SAVED

BEFORE WE WERE BORN AGAIN BUT NOW THAT WE'RE BORN AGAIN WE ARE NOW FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD THE SPIRIT OF GOD LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF US BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE A DELIBERATE DECISION TO DENY THE CARNAL MIND! TO LIVE A SPIRIT-LED LIFE SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE CARNAL MIND, #1 – WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FLESH #2 – WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE BODY

THE ANIMAL NATURE OR THE NATURAL MAN THE BIBLE SAYS, "THE NATURAL MAN CANNOT RECEIVE THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS TO HIM" HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO TALK TO SOMEBODY THAT'S NOT A BELIEVER ABOUT SPIRITUAL THINGS? HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO TELL THEM ABOUT LOVING THEIR NEIGHBORS AND FORGIVENESS AND DOING ALL THESE THINGS? IT'S DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO UNDERSTAND! WHY? BECAUSE IT'S THE NATURAL MAN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT SPIRITUAL THINGS IT'S LIKE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A SQUARE PEG AND YOU'RE TRYING TO FIT IT INTO A ROUND HOLE! THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE TRYING TO LIVE A LIFE IN CARNALITY

TO LIVE A SPIRIT-LED LIFE, TO LIVE A SUPERNATURAL LIFE WITH A CARNAL MIND HALLELUJAH! YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT MANY CHRISTIANS BATTLE WITH CARNALITY LET'S BE HONEST ABOUT IT LET'S JUST BE HONEST ABOUT IT MANY CHRISTIANS BATTLE WITH CARNALITY

A CHRISTIAN CAN BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND STILL HAVE A CARNAL MINDSET! I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE HOW MANY CHRISTIANS DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVE IN UNFORGIVENESS? THEY SPEAK IN TONGUES THEY PRAY THEY PROPHESY BUT THEY HAVE A HARD TIME RELEASING PEOPLE THAT DO THEM WRONG! IF SOMEBODY HURTS THEM THEY HAVE TO GO IN CONSECRATION FOR 12 MONTHS

THEY GO GET A PRAYER SHAWL AND PUT IT OVER THEIR HEAD THEY LOCK THEMSELVES IN A ROOM AND THEY SAY I'M GOING INTO CONSECRATION WHY? BECAUSE THEY'RE OFFENDED OR THEY'RE HURT THAT'S CALLED CARNALITY HOW MANY CHRISTIANS DO YOU KNOW THAT CAN SPEAK IN TONGUES AND PROPHESY, LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY RECOVER BUT THEY GOSSIP! HELLO! HOW MANY CHRISTIANS DO YOU KNOW THAT STRUGGLE WITH THEIR PHYSICAL APPETITES? THEY DEAL WITH GLUTTONY

THEY EAT ALL THE TIME THEY'RE ALWAYS OVEREATING THEY'RE ALWAYS LIVING A LIFESTYLE THAT IS NOT REALLY ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD THEY DON'T HAVE SELF-CONTROL THAT'S CALLED THE FLESH, BELOVED

SO YOU CAN BE BORN AGAIN AND STILL HAVE FLESHLY AREAS IN YOUR LIFE! DON'T BE DECEIVED! OF COURSE YOU CAN! IN THE SAME WAY PAUL IS WRITING TO CHRISTIANS HE'S WRITING TO BELIEVERS HE'S NOT WRITING TO UNBELIEVERS HE'S WRITING TO PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH! HE'S WRITING TO PEOPLE THAT OPERATE – THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH IS ONE OF THE MOST GIFTED CHURCHES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT! THEY HAD ALL OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT! THE 9 MANIFESTATIONS OF THE SPIRIT WERE EVIDENT IN THE CHURCH! AND YET HE SAYS YOU'RE CARNAL! ONE OF THE REASONS HE SAYS THEY'RE CARNAL IS BECAUSE HE SAYS YOU'RE STILL HAVING STRIFE AMONG YOU CAN I BE HONEST WITH YOU? I LOVE TO BE TRANSPARENT

ONE TIME I WAS PRAYING AND GOD BEGIN TO DEAL WITH ME AND HE SAID, "KYNAN!" I SAID, "YES, LORD" HE SAID, "YOUR CHURCH IS CARNAL!" AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY CHURCH IS CARNAL? HOW COULD MY CHURCH BE CARNAL? GOD SAYS BECAUSE THERE'S ENVYING AND STRIFE IN THE CHURCH! SEE A LOT OF TIMES WE THINK OF CARNAL AS JUST SEXUAL NOW THAT CAN BE AN ASPECT OF CARNALITY BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY ASPECT GOD SAID THERE'S STRIFE IN THE CHURCH! PEOPLE ARE ARGUING AMONGST THEMSELVES THEY'RE BICKERING BACK AND FORTH

ONE SAYS I AM OF PAUL ANOTHER SAYS I AM OF APOLLOS ONE SAYS I AM OF THIS MINISTER ANOTHER SAYS I AM OF THAT MINISTER SEE WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS CARNALITY IT IS NOT THE SPIRIT OF GOD! THE BIBLE SAYS IN COLOSSIANS, CHAPTER 3, IT SAYS, "IF YE THEN BE RISEN WITH CHRIST SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE WHERE CHRIST IS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD

SET YOUR AFFECTIONS ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH FOR YOU ARE DEAD" AND THEN IT SAYS FURTHER, "MORTIFY YOUR MEMBERS" WHAT YOU FEED THE MOST WILL BECOME THE STRONGEST FORCE IN YOUR LIFE! IF YOU FEED YOUR SPIRIT MAN IF YOU FEED YOUR SPIRIT MAN THE WORD OF GOD

IF YOU MEDITATE IN THE WORD IF YOU STAY IN THE WORD IF YOU LEARN TO LIVE A LIFE GOVERNED BY THE SPIRIT YOUR SPIRIT MAN WILL BEGIN TO FLOURISH ON THE INSIDE OF YOU! BUT IF YOU DENY YOUR SPIRIT MAN OR STARVE YOUR SPIRIT MAN, YOUR SPIRIT MAN WILL NOT HAVE THE VERACITY YOUR SPIRIT IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE! AND YOUR FLESH WILL BEGIN TO TAKE CONTROL! HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT WHEN YOU'RE NOT PRAYING AND BEING IN THE WORD YOU TEND TO BE A LITTLE BIT SHORT-TEMPERED WITH PEOPLE? WELL THAT'S CALLED CARNALITY! BUT I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU! YOU CAN OVERCOME THAT! IN JUST A MOMENT I'M GONNA SHARE SOME KEYS FOR YOU TO OVERCOME THAT! BUT BEFORE WE DO THAT I WANNA GO TO YOU AND I WANNA ASK YOU THIS QUESTION IS THERE AN ISSUE IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU CAN'T OVERCOME? WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK IN A MOMENT! [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY" IN JUST ONE MOMENT! WOMAN: I DO BELIEVE I HAVE ISSUES BUT I JUST, I JUST PRAY ABOUT IT AND I REALLY BELIEVE IN MY PRAYER AND I BELIEVE IN JESUS SO I BELIEVE I CAN OVERCOME IN ANYTHING, ANY ISSUE I HAVE

WOMAN: THERE'S THAT DOUBT THAT CONSTANTLY CREEPS IN AND IT'S LIKE WELL CAN I DO THAT? CAN I ACTUALLY BE DEBT FREE OR CAN I BE FREE OF WHATEVER, YOU KNOW, MY OBSTACLE MIGHT BE? MAN: I THINK MAYBE SOMETIMES BEING FEARFUL OF THINGS IS ALWAYS DIFFICULT BUT I THINK THE MORE YOU DO VARIOUS THINGS AND LIKE AFFIRM THAT IT IS THE RIGHT CHOICE THE EASIER IT BECOMES WOMAN: WELL I'M ACTUALLY DEALING WITH IT RIGHT NOW! TODAY IS MY MOTHER'S 47TH BIRTHDAY SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD I FOUND HER AFTER ONE OF MY BASKETBALL GAMES SO I'VE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH THAT LIKE MY ENTIRE LIFE

BUT I'M 25 NOW IT'S BEEN 10 YEARS NOW SO I THINK I'M FINALLY LIKE OVERCOMING IT, YOU KNOW, NOW THAT I'M HERE AND TAKING ON MY CAREER IT'S NOT WHERE I WANNA BE BUT I DEFINITELY THINK THAT I'M STILL OVERCOMING THAT [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: AND NOW BACK TO "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!" KB: WHAT A GREAT RESPONSE TO THAT VERY PROFOUND QUESTION! I'M CURIOUS TO HEAR WHAT YOUR ANSWERS WOULD BE AS WELL! YOU KNOW WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT HOW TO EXPERIENCE FREEDOM FROM CARNALITY! WE SAID THAT "THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NETHER INDEED CAN BE

THEREFORE THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD" SO WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT WHATEVER WE FEED THE MOST IS WHAT WILL TAKE CONTROL! WHATEVER WE FEED THE MOST IS WHAT WILL TAKE CONTROL! WHAT ARE YOU FEEDING? WHAT ARE YOU FEEDING? YOU KNOW I HEARD A PREACHER SAY ONE TIME, HE SAYS IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS SATAN IS A SERPENT BY THE TIME WE GET TO REVELATION, HE'S A DRAGON! SOMEBODY'S BEEN FEEDING HIM! YOU SEE THE ENEMY FEEDS OFF OF OUR FLESH HE FEEDS OFF OF THE DUST IS THAT NOT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN GOD CURSED THE SERPENT? HE SAYS YOU WILL CRAWL ON YOUR BELLY

YOU WILL EAT DUST ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE THAT'S THE FLESH THAT'S OUR FLESH! MAN IS MADE OF THE DUST SO THE ENEMY FEEDS OFF OF THE FLESH HE FEEDS OFF OF THE DUST HE FEEDS OFF OF DIRTY THINGS

AND YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE WAY TO INCAPACITATE THE ENEMY IS TO STARVE HIM! THE BIBLE SAYS THAT "THE ENEMY WALKS ABOUT AS A ROARING LION SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR" LIONS EAT FLESH! I WAS RECENTLY IN AFRICA AND I WAS FEEDING A LION THEY GAVE ME SOME RAW MET TO FEED THE LION I BEGAN TO FEED THE LION AND AFTER I FED THE LION THE MAN TOLD ME TO PUT MY HAND IN FRONT OF THE LION AND THE LION TRIED TO BITE MY FIST

AND I SAID WHY DOES HE DO THAT? HE SAYS BECAUSE HUMAN MEAT IS STILL GOOD MEAT! I THOUGHT MY GOD! THE ENEMY IS LIKE THAT ROARING LION HE LOVES TO FEED OFF OF FLESH! HE LOVES TO FEED OFF OF TOXIC THOUGHTS! HE LOVES TO FEED OFF OF CARNAL THINKING! HE LOVES TO FEED OFF OF STINKIN' THINKIN'! WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THIS YOU KNOW THAT THE WAY TO REALLY DESTROY THE ENEMY'S PLANS IN YOUR LIFE IS TO STARVE HIM OF THE GRATIFICATION OF YOUR FLESH! WHEN YOU'RE TEMPTED TO DO SOMETHING OR YOU'RE TEMPTED TO GO IN A CERTAIN DIRECTION WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT? I'M NOT GONNA DO THAT! I COULD DO THAT BUT I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT! EVERY TIME YOU DENY YOUR FLESH YOU DISEMPOWER YOUR FLESH! CAN I SAY THAT AGAIN? EVERY TIME YOU DENY YOUR FLESH YOU DISEMPOWER YOUR FLESH! YOU SEE I WANNA SHARE WITH YOU SOMETHING THAT'S VERY, VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE SAYS IN GALATIANS, CHAPTER 5, IT SAYS THAT, "THE SPIRIT LUSTETH AGAINST THE FLESH AND THE FLESH AGAINST THE SPIRIT THESE TWO ARE CONTRARY ONE TO THE OTHER SO YOU CANNOT DO THE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD

" YOU SEE THAT'S WHY WHEN YOU'RE IN THE FLESH IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD! WHY? BECAUSE THINGS OF THE FLESH ARE NOT THE SAME AS THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT! THINGS OF THE SPIRIT ARE NOT THE SAME AS THINGS OF THE FLESH! YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE! HALLELUJAH! THE BIBLE SAYS, "A DOUBLE-MINDED MAN IS UNSTABLE IN ALL OF HIS WAYS" YOU GOTTA MAKE A CHOICE! AM I GOING TO BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED OR AM I GONNA BE CARNALLY-MINDED? NOW I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE MISTAKES AND DO THAT I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT I'M TALKING ABOUT CONSISTENTLY MAKING A DECISION THAT I'M NOT GOING TO OPERATE ACCORDING TO MY 5 SENSES! YOU SEE FEAR IS A FUNCTION OF CARNALITY! ANGER IS A FUNCTION OF CARNALITY! WORRY IS A FUNCTION OF CARNALITY! I WANNA SHOW YOU A FEW AREAS WHERE MANY CHRISTIANS STRUGGLE WITH CARNALITY AND I'M GONNA SHOW YOU HOW TO OVERCOME THAT! OKAY? I'LL SHOW YOU A FEW AREAS WHERE CHRISTIANS STRUGGLE WITH CARNALITY AND HOW YOU CAN OVERCOME IT! #1 – INTELLECTUALISM! OH BOY! INTELLECTUALISM! YOU KNOW SOME OF US TRY TO FIGURE EVERYTHING OUT! WE HAVE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT EVERYTHING GOD'S TRYING TO DO! IF YOU TELL THEM GOD'S GONNA GIVE YOU A MIRACLE THEY'LL SAY HOW'S HE GONNA DO THAT? GOD'S GONNA GIVE YOU A FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

YOU'RE GONNA COME OUT OF DEBT THIS YEAR HOW? HOW'S HE GONNA DO THAT? THAT'S CALLED INTELLECTUALISM HOW ABOUT PRIDE? I FOUND THAT IN THE CHURCH IN THE UNITED STATES MANY BELIEVERS STRUGGLE WITH PRIDE THINKING OF OURSELVES MORE HIGHLY THAN WE OUGHT TO THINK THINKING THAT OTHERS ARE LOWER THAN WE ARE

THAT'S CALLED PRIDE ARROGANCE EGO MY NEXT POINT IS EGO WE ARE ALL EQUAL IN ESSENCE BUT EVERYONE IS NOT ON AN EQUAL LEVEL

THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THE AMERICAN CHURCH STRUGGLES WITH BECAUSE IN THE AMERICAN CHURCH EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE ON THE SAME LEVEL EVERYBODY'S EQUAL TO THE PASTOR EVERYBODY'S EQUAL TO THE BISHOP HEY, WE'RE EQUAL TO THE POPE AS FAR AS WE'RE CONCERNED! THAT'S CALLED EGO TRYING TO BE ON EQUAL FOOTING WITH THOSE WHO ARE PEOPLE OF AUTHORITY

TRYING TO BE ON EQUAL FOOTING IT'S LIKE STUDENTS NOW IN SCHOOL THEY TRY TO QUARREL WITH THEIR TEACHERS THEY FEEL LIKE THEY'RE EQUAL WITH THEIR TEACHERS PEOPLE GO ON JOBS

THEY FEEL LIKE THEY'RE EQUAL WITH THEIR SUPERVISORS AND THEIR MANAGERS BELOVED, THAT'S CALLED EGO AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY CARNAL! IT'S NOT OF GOD! THE BIBLE SAYS, "HUMBLE YOURSELF UNDER THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD AND HE WILL EXALT YOU IN DUE SEASON" SO YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT AN ATTITUDE OF HUMILITY IS SPIRITUAL BUT AN ATTITUDE OF EGO AND PRIDE IS CARNAL HOW ABOUT SELF-EXALTATION? YOU KNOW IN THIS AGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA WE'RE SEEING A LOT OF SELF-PROMOTION AND SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO BASICALLY PROMOTE THEMSELVES

PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO BUILD THEIR MINISTRIES SOME PEOPLE HAVE A WORLD-WIDE WEBSITE AND THEY THINK THAT EQUALS TO A WORLD-WIDE MINISTRY JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE ON THE WORLD-WIDE WEB DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE A WORLD-WIDE MINISTRY WHY? BECAUSE GOD SAYS THAT THE MINISTRY OF JESUS IS BORN OUT OF OUR DEVOTION WHAT ARE YOU DEVOTED TO? WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO? THAT DETERMINES THE ESSENCE OF YOUR MINISTRY

HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE TRENCHES? HAVE YOU GONE AND SACRIFICED? HAVE YOU LAID DOWN YOUR LIFE? ARE YOU WILLING TO SERVE OTHERS OR DO YOU JUST WANNA BE SERVED? YOU KNOW WE LIVE IN A SEASON WHERE, MAN, YOU HAVE PASTORS WITH 5 MEMBERS IN THEIR CHURCH AND ALL 5 OF THOSE MEMBERS ARE SECURITY GUARDS AND ARMOR BEARERS AND BODYGUARDS WHAT ARE YOU GUARDING? WHAT ARE YOU SECURING? YOU SEE WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE ATTITUDE OF SELF-EXALTATION IS NOT OF GOD! HOW ABOUT DOUBT AND UNBELIEF? THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE ISRAELITES "DIDN'T ENTER INTO THE REST BECAUSE OF UNBELIEF" DOUBT AND UNBELIEF IS A FACULTY OF THE CARNAL MIND SUSPICION DISTRUST

DON'T WE LIVE IN SUCH A SOCIETY UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OF THE WAY THINGS HAVE BEEN IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO TRUST PEOPLE VERY DIFFICULT TO REALLY OPEN OURSELVES AND ALLOW PEOPLE IN, ISN'T IT? WELL A LOT OF US USE THAT SAME APPROACH WHEN IT COMES TO GOD IT'S DIFFICULT FOR MANY PEOPLE TO TRUST GOD TO REALLY RELY ON HIM AND TO REALLY DEPEND UPON HIS WORD LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION

THESE QUESTIONS ARE GONNA BE ANSWERS THEY'RE QUESTIONS BUT THEY'RE REALLY ANSWERS LISTEN TO THIS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU ADOPTED A PHILOSOPHY OF "YES AND AMEN" TO GOD? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU ADOPTED A PHILOSOPHY OF "YES AND AMEN" TO GOD? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU'D BE DUMB ENOUGH TO JUST BELIEVE GOD? DON'T BE INSULTED BUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU WOULD JUST BE DUMB ENOUGH TO BELIEVE GOD? LET ME ASK YOU THIS

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU WERE GRATEFUL ALL THE TIME? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU WERE GRATEFUL ALL THE TIME? SEE THESE ARE THINGS THAT YOU AND I CAN DO THAT WILL DEFEAT THE CARNAL MIND IN OUR LIVES I TELL YOU I'VE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS, BELOVED, THAT WE MUST LEARN TO GRATIFY THE RIGHT THINGS YOU SEE WHAT YOU GRATIFY WILL CHANGE WHAT YOU GRAVITATE TOWARDS! YOUR GRATIFICATION DETERMINES YOUR GRAVITATION! THINK ABOUT IT! WHATEVER YOU GRATIFY YOU TEND TO WANT MORE OF IT! YOU TEND TO GRAVITATE TOWARD IT MORE SO IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A SPIRITUAL MIND YOU HAVE TO BEGIN TO GRATIFY SPIRITUAL THINGS GRATIFY YOUR SPIRITUAL APPETITE

FEED YOURSELF THE WORD PRAY SPEND TIME IN THE WORD OF GOD FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER BELIEVERS THESE ARE THINGS THAT GRATIFY YOUR SPIRIT MAN

AND GUESS WHAT? YOU'LL BEGIN TO GRAVITATE TOWARDS SPIRITUAL THINGS! BELOVED, DON'T BE CARNALLY-MINDED! "TO BE CARNALLY-MINDED IS DEATH BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE" I WANNA PRAY FOR YOU IN JUST A MOMENT DON'T GO ANYWHERE! WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK ON "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!" [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY" IN JUST ONE MOMENT! [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: AND NOW BACK TO "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!" KB: HEY FRIENDS! YOU KNOW I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU STAYING WITH US AND I APPRECIATE YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT! LISTEN! I WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A SUBJECT THAT WE ALL CAN IDENTIFY WITH WE ALL CAN LOOK TO AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE'S AN AREA OF OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO GROW IN THIS AREA BUT BEFORE I DO THAT I WANNA REMIND ALL OF YOU TO REMEMBER GO TO THE WEBSITE

I WANNA HEAR YOUR PRAISE REPORTS, YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS, YOUR TESTIMONIES WE WANNA KNOW WHAT GOD IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE YOU CAN GO TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA AND SUBMIT PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS THERE AS WELL BUT WE WANNA HEAR FROM YOU AND WE WANNA READ THEM ON THE AIR SO THAT EVERYBODY WILL BE BLESSED! CAN I PRAY WITH YOU, BELOVED? YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS, "TO BE CARNALLY-MINDED IS DEATH BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE" HOW MANY OF YOU OUT THERE WANT LIFE AND PEACE? HOW MANY OF YOU WANT TO LIVE A LIFE OF THE PERFECT "SHALOM" OF GOD? I WANNA PRAY THE AARONIC BLESSING OVER YOU AND WANNA RELEASE A WORD OVER YOUR LIFE! THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU! THE LORD CAUSE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS UNTO YOU! THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND BLESS YOU WITH HIS PEACE! HIS SHALOM! NOTHING MISSING AND NOTHING BROKEN! FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME I THANK YOU FOR RELEASING YOUR PERFECT "SHALOM" WHICH ALSO DEALS WITH SOUNDNESS OF MIND! YOU WANT US TO BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED, GOD, SO THAT WE CAN LIVE A LIFE OF VICTORY! AND IF THEY DON'T KNOW YOU OUT THERE, LORD, IF THEY'VE NEVER MET JESUS, YESHUA HA MASHIACH, THE PRINCE OF PEACE, THE SAR SHALOM, GOD I THANK YOU FOR A DIVINE INTRODUCTION! THANK YOU FOR INVADING THOSE HOMES WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST! THANK YOU, LORD, THAT EVERYBODY LISTENING TO THE SOUND OF MY VOICE HAS AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE LIVING GOD! THAT THE PRESENCE OF GOD BEGINS TO FILL THAT ROOM IN JESUS' NAME! AMEN! GOD BLESS YOU AND WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN ON "LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!"
