  1. ARE YOU RULED BY PICTURES
    2 Corinthians 5:7
    7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
    Satan has no new strategy for deceiving people and short changing christians of their divine rights and blessing.The strategy is to paint pictures and pass it across to our minds through our eyes.This present world dwells much on sight .Perceptions are basically formed about ourselves ,the world around us and other people on what we see.is our physical eyes enough to make jugdement on issues?Capital no_Our physical eyes makes jugdement on facts and facts are not dependable.They are subject to change . The bible clearly states that we should not walk by what we see but by faith
    Faith can only produce in us through the word of God.As we access the word of God daily,our inner man(spirit) is empowered to face and subdue the challenges we encounter.Facts produce fear in us but faith through God's word produce confidence.we should be ruled by faith not by pictures

    I do not disagree with anything you have said here. I will say this though, Just as our physical eyes see the physical realm, even so should our spiritual eyes see the Kingdom in which we have been translated into. Like Jesus said, "unless a man be born again he can not see the Kingdom of God". How are we suppose to see Jesus crowned with Glory and honor, or be changed into his likeness if we can not see him in the mirror of his Word? With what sense are we to "taste" and "see" that the Lord is good, or even "lay hold upon eternal life" Surely it's not with our physical senses. The re birthed human spiritual man who also has senses that are not unlike our physical senses that need to be exercised if we are going to eat the spiritual meat of the Word of God as the Apostle Paul said the Book of Hebrews.
