Your mind can bleed you to death.
Rev Essie ~ New Birth Ministries
Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. This is Rev Essie of New Birth Ministries and I am glad that you are listening today. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. He gave you His Power so use it! I pray that you had a beautiful Christmas, I know that I did praise God.
Today the topic is “Your mind can bleed you to death.” Get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I’ll be back to delve into this subject right after we invoke the Holy Spirit.
The subject today will cover something that is harmful to mankind and that is…Carnality. Don’t be so carnal that we can’t give thanks to God in every occasion!
2Sa 22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
1Ch 16:8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
1Ch 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is
good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
1Ch 16:35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
I want to start this episode out with the proper terminology of carnality. And next Sunday will be the beginning of a new set of episodes so let me start out by saying to you HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MANY MORE!
Because when we use our minds to do our daily chores and requirements of life, before we enquire of the Holy Spirit Who lives inside of us, we…. are living in carnality.
Carnality/Carnal: carnal | ˈkärnl |
relating to physical, especially sexual, needs and activities: carnal desire.
Instead of getting up in the morning, thanking God for another day and other things that He’s done for us, some of us cater to our fleshly needs first. When we hop out of bed, grab a cup of our favorite drink or a bowl or plate of our favorite food, without first giving honor to God and praying to Him, we are operating from our carnal-selves rather than our spiritual selves. Kevin Zadai who has been on Sid Roth’s show many times and has his own Ministry and Prophecy School, says, “Train your mind to side with your spirit.” Notice he didn’t say, “Train your spirit to side with your mind” which, in doing so, one can quickly become spiritually destitute, or literally “spiritually retarded” and lack in every area of our lives. Christians are supposed to have some kind of “morality clause.” People are watching. When they see us act just like them, they won’t believe that we are Christians. Live holy, if you don’t the world will claim you as being one of them. If you say that you are a Christian and you live with your boyfriend or girlfriend, cuss and cheat, the world will see ‘them’ in you and not ‘Jesus.’
When we look up the word ‘retarded’ we see that it means, less advanced in mental, physical, or social development than is usual for one’s age.
• The offensive version means to be very foolish or stupid: in retrospect, it was a totally retarded idea. But we don’t use that word too much anymore along with a few other terms that easily offends others.
I know this may sound a bit harsh but as Christians, we should, by now, at least have our morning routines down pat. At least give God thanks, read some Word or say a good prayer, wash yourself clean, brush the halitosis out of your mouth and then take care of the your carnal needs. And I am not talking about sexual or immoral desires. Some people are committing adultery, fornication and self-gratification before they even get their day started and some even spend a good portion of their day committing these acts. Folks may think that it is ok to be perverted but God sees it all and His Prophets see it too. You can’t hide from the Spirit of the Most High. That includes the Men and Women of the Cloth who think that their secret sins are hidden from God or His people. FYI: The devil will make sure to reveal to people, your inconsistencies in SOME way. We will see it in what you watch on tv, the internet or your conversation. There are women who hoard attention or men who pit women against one another or even those who try to strike up jealousy. Their minds/thoughts are bleeding them to a spiritual death.
Your life is in your blood. Your blood, your life depends on what you feed it. It’s just like those who have to take medicine to cut the fat out of their blood such as Fenofibrate which is used with a low-fat diet, exercise, and sometimes with other medications to reduce the amounts of fatty substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and to increase the amount of HDL (high-density lipoprotein; a type of fatty substance that decreases the risk of heart disease. I pray that these types of things are not bleeding anyone that we know or love to death.
When God created man, man had everything he needed to be a human except the Breath of God. Let’s read Genesis chapter 2 verse 7: Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
That means that man’s blood was ‘still’ and non functioning until it received the ‘oxygen’ so-to-speak, the life, (God’s breath) that it needed to get started. God even gave us vegetation to keep us in healthy oxygen. After that, the blood began to run through man’s veins to his heart and his brain, organs, arms and legs, hair and nails. We need the Breath of God FIRST to be alive. Have you ever seen someone who has the appearance of being drained and dark? That’s because they aren’t getting fresh supplies of the Breath of God or they are rejecting it. When you look at some people there is something that seems to be missing in them. The Holy Spirit within you will discern that something is missing or out of sorts. Their minds aren’t stayed on Jesus. (Wishy-washy) Their minds are free to be dominated by the gods of this World, ie, television, radio, news, internet, gossip rags, and neighborhood scuttlebutt. They will not rest in Christ Jesus but continue to do what their minds or the voices around them tell them to do. Their minds are bleeding them to death, bleeding all of their life forces out of them because they refuse to give in to a Man/God (Jesus) Who died that they may be free of bad decisions and self-induced suffering. In Genesis even God rested on the 7th day. If God rests, we should too. We should rest from hard decisions, loneliness, worry and guilt and give it all to Jesus. And sometimes we have to REST-FROM-OURSELVES. Amen? People are overworked in these days, over-worried with this Coronavirus closing everything down, and some have been recorded as stressed, depressed and oppressed. That’s because they refuse to give all of their concerns to the Lord. Too many choose pills over prayer, being under the influence of man instead of God.
Then you have those who just copped out of life. They got tired, miserable and weak and decided to just check out and leave the heavy things to someone else’s care and that person or those persons begin to tire out due to the much too heavy load. They find that they cannot pray like they used to or praise and worship God the way that they used to because their cup is filled to the brim with worries and responsibilities. It’s filled so full that if it were a cup of coffee they wouldn’t even be able to get it to their lips without dropping it.
I recently was watching one of the very few shows that I watch called “Burn Notice” where there is a team of ‘burned spies’ who work together to help people in need. One of the characters named Sam had gotten shot and was bleeding. The main characters, Michael and Fee had to tell him to stop trying so hard to continue to try to help them and finally rest so that he would not bleed to death. In this case, his mind was still working overtime trying to do that which his body could no longer properly do. His movements were causing blood to gush out of his body. What good would he be bloodless? How could he help the team being dead? And that’s what many people do today. They continue to try to do physical work without powering up their supernatural/spiritual abilities first. You cannot help anyone else if you are bleeding to death! Upon every attempted movement you will bleed out.
- We have friends and family who are operating on their last legs, thinking that they are powerful and mighty yet they are depleted and energy-less.
a. They need more study of the Word.
- Churches are dead because their ministers are life-less and unknowedgeable of the salvation and healing power of the Most High God. Bruce Lee used to say, “Mind over matter” but I say, “Spirit over Mind.” Amen? Churches today are good in:
a. Going through the motions without the power.
1. Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Ecc 5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
Ecc 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
Eze 17:9 Say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof.
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
In Jesus there is regeneration, a newness, rest, solitude and righteousness. He tells us to come to Him. He makes living easier. Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I took the liberty to research the word bleed | blēd | Bleed out:
verb (past and past participle bled | bled | )
1 [no object] lose blood from the body as a result of injury or illness:
Let’s talk about those church injuries, family injuries, relationship injuries that we experience every day, amen? Sometimes you feel like someone took a Ginsu knife and sliced right through your heart but you keep going through the motions, slowly bleeding on others while trying to maintain your dignity. There are so many hurting people in the world. That’s why we have to be careful of what ‘voices’ that we listen to. “Hurting people hurt people.”
2 [with object] draw blood from (someone), especially as a once-common method of treatment in medicine.
• remove blood from (an animal carcass): the first steer rolled out on the floor to be bled, skinned, and dressed.
Be on the alert for people with the Vampire Spirit. It will hound and harass you with everything that it can do weaken you so that you will not converse with the Lord and get powered-up as God intends for you to be. They suck and suck the life out of you until it is no longer you that is living but a weakened version of the you that God intended for you to be. You live in fear, doubt and guilt. Nothing that you ever do is right or deserving to these people. They ride off of your ticket. They ride off of your wings until you are no longer flying but dragging through the muck and the mire. They don’t care because they don’t care about themselves to care about you. They are so nonchalant that they don’t even realize that everyone else can see how they treat you. Someone who is a repeat offender, a repeat loser so-to-speak could care less what others are saying about them.
They drain your resources, your money, your time. As an example: his policy of attempting to bleed unions of funds. They bleed your funds. I know a nice man who has a son that NEVER stops needing him. The man is tired and cannot do it anymore. This young man is taking advantage of the man’s love and generosity. This young man is a blood-sucker, just like a mosquito. And he’s leaving an itchy, ugly mark all over the man’s name and life. But the son doesn’t care.
3 [with object] allow (fluid or gas) to escape from a closed system through a valve: open the valves and bleed air from the pump chamber.
Letting off ‘steam’ is alright as long as you do it carefully and only to God Who understands. Not innocent people. Because you are bleeding, don’t cut somebody else. Don’t drain the life out of someone because you allowed someone else to do it to you. That’s the typical example of the green-eyed monster called jealousy.
4 treat (a system) by allowing fluid or gas to escape through a valve: bleeding the radiator at the air vent. bleed someone/something dry (or white) drain someone or something of wealth or resources: this car has been bleeding me dry | the industry had been bled dry by piracy.
Their lives are slowly but surely slipping away. The Spirit of Python wraps itself around you until it squeezes all of the life out of you. You feel as though you can’t breathe. You lose hope. You have to bind these spirits in Jesus name, believe, and command them to never return to your loved ones or your household.
4 Unorthodoxical bleeding into one another. Unholy mixture as in: “I worked loosely with the oils, allowing colors to bleed into one another.”
Leeches will cause others to look at you and wonder exactly where you stand. Make sure that you aren’t becoming or have become an enabler to someone with this character. The devil uses them to ruin your name or ministry just as he did Eli and his sons. Eli’s sons were bringing prostitutes into the Temple and doing all that was unholy and unbecoming of a Priests household. They didn’t care about how their Father felt or what his status in the church was because they didn’t care about themselves. They were what we used to call “the weak links” of the family and everybody knows it.
5 Printing (with reference to an illustration or design) print or be printed so that it runs off the page after trimming: the picture bleeds on three sides | [with object] : Faye showed us how to bleed the images for our brochure layout.
When people look at the one being used and bled, they will not only see a picture of their righteous self but a mixture. Like a bleeding picture, people will see the evil beginning to bleed into that person’s persona. They will become double-minded and unstable in all of their ways until they repent and kick the blood-sucker in their minds to the curb. Their thoughts are now allowing them to live more carnally, giving up on being successful and victorious. They accept anything that comes by without being able to discern whether they are good or evil. They lose hope and others can see or hear it in their voices. They lose power and will go to anybody that shows them attention. They went from being filled with the Holy Ghost to being a half-filled glass. Containing a bit of the Spirit of God but not filled with Him wholly by exercising their relationship with Him. Are they saved? Yes but they are not reaching out to get as much as they can get from the Lord. God loves blessing His children. I want everything that God has for me Amen? Repentance is needed here before these people bleed out and die spiritually or even naturally. You ever hear the song, “Get right church and let’s go home?” Jesus is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle. He’s coming for the Remnant and I am definitely going to be in that number.
Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love!
Num 6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
