SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANINGTHE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe is such that people are by nature, opposed to what is true and righteous. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints – and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in I I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6: 10-20 NKJV
ENEMY – To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good. Titus 1: 15-16 NIV
2 Timothy 3: 8-9 – As Jannes and Jambres were opposed to Moses, so also these people are opposed to the truth – people whose minds do not function and who are failures in the faith. But they will not get very far, because everyone will see how stupid they are. That is just what happened to Jannes and Jambres. GNT
Human Guilt (They automatically do it and cannot change that behavior) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe it is a signal that there is something we need to work on. It is a hidden blessing when we realize this, because it shows us where to focus our attention and spiritual work. God has hardwired each of us with a sense of right and wrong and a sense of guilt for having done wrong. He gives us this sense of guilt not to demoralize us but to make us aware of our need for a solution.
