Every one on earth gets thoughts that enter there minds,Now The LORD puts thoughts in our mind ,as well as demons
You know your thinking of something ,then a thought enters your mind,it may not have anything to do with what you were thinking of ?or it may .This is not your thought ,it is either from the HOLY SPIRIT or a demon .
As far as fasting ,The LORD said we would ,I have found ?If we fast 3 full days ,We will be walking or our spirit will be in control .The inner man .
But it takes about 3 days without food ,just water ,the bible and praying .If we are the LORDS .We will hear HIm clearly .
Isa 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Mat 9:15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
So HE SAYS WE WILL FAST !
1Th 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You see ?we are 3 parts ,when reading GODS LIVING WORD ?We must think ?Which part of me ,is this speaking of ?As some scriptures appear not to line up with others ?
Like this :1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us
1Jo 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Many are like this .Because one speaks of the flesh
The other speaks of the spirit
Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
We can not control our evil flesh ,without having our spirit in control .
the flesh can not help its self .it must sin ,if left in charge?
But our new spirit will never sin ,nor can it .You see it is created by GOD .
kept by the BLOOD OF OUR LORD FOREVER MORE .
it is not of this world ,it is of NEW JERUSALEM ,our city ,made just for us .
Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Joh 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
