Fasting,why???

fasting on juices or just a meal or so?Does nothing!except the person may feel ?they are now righteous?
But fasting in TRUTH ,if on water only?For at least 3 days .WILL MAKE THE SPIRIT part of us ,take control.It really does not make us closer to GOD!Just brings us the the point?we can hear HIM.GOD NEVER LOVES US MORE OR LESS.Just WE hear HIM more or less!And we fast,because?HE said we would.Many christains.cannot even fast.Because they may have sicknesses or not wable to put them selfs aside!
Of course,if they are sick to start with?They should obey GOD,and do what it says in james,5
satan will do anything to keep us from fasting.because,he wants us to live in some doubt.he sure doesn"t wants us hearing JESUS CHRIST day and night or talking with HIM and HE with us!
other wise?we will be led by the LORD always .And many will be saved and many seeds of truth planted!No telling the works we would do!he sure doesn"t want ,too see us as the 1st church was!
FASTING is a mighty tool.few use or do not use correctly.I have in my own life.Seen a lot ,when fasting.And in others lifes,when they do it correctly.
But there are so many saying this and that.that few really fast .one site says.some are fasting for 40 days.I think?this is not good,if its a real fast.But it could be ?they are eating or drinking juices???
I don"t think,anyone needs to fast ,more than 4 days?Because?Once we walk in our new creature.IT IS ENOUGH!THEN WE SHOULD HEAR THE LORD WELL,AND THAT IS ENough.
I also think?it is dangerous to fast,if we are not born of GOD!
WE become,MORE SPIRITUALLY AWARE.When fasting.I could see ,what spirit people were of.either of GOD or satan.I could tell,what they would say ,before they spoke.! I could look at the same color and see the difference.I could hear GOD very clear!.But I did not like knowing peoples thoughts.I always hated ,having power over others.That is why?I never took a mod job.
I fasted and told my wife,your best friend had a evil spirit.she got very upset.Then a short time later.The girl did some evil.And my wife,said she was sorry.She said ,she also knew then!You know in the bible?it says ?JESUS CJHRIST precieved this and that?That is the way it is !we then precieve things too.
The works HE did?When walking in our inner man,We too will do.Because we are like HIm ,in our real us! This seems too much in our natural minds to accept?
But of course,this is scriptural. 1Jo 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
WE CAN NOT SEE,our new creature,or person.WHO WE REALLY ARE!So we do not fully accept this scripture.We want to never think,we are like HIM.Because we judge wrong?We judge many times after the flesh.knowing,it is sin full and weak.But the flesh is only tempory .But the spirit of the person is enteral.That is where we should live ,by FAITH!Seeking to feed the inner being and use the inner being .This will
please GOD! and bless many!THEN ,we see this scripture come true in our lifes.
Joh 5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and he will show him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
GOD CAN DO GREAT WORKS WITH THE RIGHT PERSON.THE ONE ,WHO TRULY FOLLOWS HIM!
FEw will?We see ,what a hand full did ,in the 1st church.Now we are a vast army.But few follow the general.many follow pastors ,or others who write books.or place there homes and familys 1st.on them selfs.
Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
one lie or disobeying HIM.will keepp us from,being that person.If those,who think they are ,that person?will not obey in little things.which hold us back.We are to be holy and perfect in CHRIST JESUS!We can not knock others and call our selves righteous!We must bless others and be LONG SUFFERING as OUR LORD IS AND WAS! WE ARE TRYING TO THINK LIKE HIM AND BE LIKE HIM.BECAUSE HE SAYS WE ARE LIKE HIM.Now ,I KNOW!WE ARE .WE JUST NEED TO WALK IN OUR SPIRITS.THEN EVERYTHING ELSE?IS AUTOMATIC!IT JUST FALLS INTO PLACE! the rest and the rivers of living water,the sings and wonders.the gifts.they just start being revealed in our lifes.I know.I experianced them.THEY ARE FOR ALL OF GODS CHILDERN!It seems so far away tomany.But it is already in them?BECAUSE HE IS IN THEM!

spirit1st I can relate to you with what your saying because I walked with God in such away for 5 months before I went to prison. Maybe not as quite as deep as you have so gracefuly explained. I also did'nt fast to obtain such a walk, I think God just blessed me with an abundance of Grace because He pitied me in my time of sorrow. Ofcourse I do not know forsure why God blessed me in that time of my life, I just know He did and am eternaly grateful. I beleive you have seen something incredible and desire all God's people to walk in it. I am a little confused as why you have accredited such a marvalous experiance to fasting? I know the Holy Spirit has taught me to never put a duty in the place of Christ. The Lord may touch us at a time when we are performing duties toward Him, but, we should never deceive ourselves into thinking, WOW God touched me because I did such and such etc.... God touches us because He loves us. We can fellowship with God because of the life, death, and resurection of the Lamb of God. The blood of Jesus Christ is the only sacrifice that can please the Father. Everthing we do must spring forth from our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. A person born again today who has never fasted, never read the bible, said only one prayer in their life, can be touched by God in just the same manner as a person who has done all the above consistantly for 100 years. For they are both just as pleasing to God because of the imputed rightousness of Jesus Christ upon their lives. I would just like to take this time to encourage everyone to remember in all duties that Jesus Christ is our all in all. Do all things because the great Lover of your soul has washed you in his own Blood. Never do anything if you think that is going to make you more Holy than what Jesus already has made you. The scriptural support for what I have said starts in Gen 1:1 and ends in Rev 22:21. :0) Fasting is good if it's done in the Spirit of humility, and a realization that doing the duty itself does not make you more Holy. Thats my thoughts on this subject.

ONCE WE ARE BORN OF GOD?WE ARE NEW CREATURES,JUST LIKE OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! FASTING will allow the new you ,to gain control over the flesh .The flesh cannot help but sin.But the new creature,hates sin and doesn"t even like this world!

2Co 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

ASK IN FAITH,THAT YOU MIGHT BE UDES IN A MORE PERFECT WAY,BY OUR LORD ,JESUS CHRIST!

Amen. I believe fully in the power of the Holy Spirit.

I am just reciently born again, and at 28 just figuring things out. I know that there are things that I still dont understand, and through prayer and study, I will get there.

ASK OUR LORD FOR MORE OF HIM!
And ,We all start off babys in the spirit.Once born of GOD!.

1Pe 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
1Pe 2:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
1Pe 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
JUST MAKE THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.The one who has the last word.And you will not go wrong!
