The REAL You is NOT participating in the battle! June 23 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My beloved child, whom I am fighting for even now… and always,
There is a great battle going on inside you right now. You are aware that something is going on, but you have believed the lie that you are one of the combatants. You think that you are participating in the battle because it feels like you are… but you’re not!
This epic battle is between the flesh, which is not you, and My Spirit. The flesh, a force– an entity of itself, is sin. I have taken away your sin, the sin of the world… I have forgiven your sin and do not hold it against you. I chose not to even remember it!
Sin itself (the power of sin) still exists. Evil itself exists and lives in the world and in the “members of your body.” But it is not you. “Living after the flesh” is trying to get your needs met apart from Me. I have won the war and defeated and disarmed the enemy. Although he is a defeated foe, like a vicious, mad animal in a cage, he still tries to intimidate and influence you.
I communicate with your spirit which is one with My Spirit. The enemy communicates with the flesh (sin… evil). The battle is between the flesh (which is not you) and My Spirit. Every single second every day, you have the choice of whom to listen to, whom to believe. That choice is in your will.
The flesh and evil dwell in the natural… in the visible world. My Spirit dwells in the invisible, real, eternal Kingdom of God, which is invisible and revealed to you by the light of My Spirit. When you choose to listen to and believe Truth and Grace by faith in Me as you hear My Spirit, then you experience and walk in life… in Our triune circle dance of love and everything good.
When you choose to listen to and walk after the flesh (sin) you experience condemnation, guilt, worry, and death.
I don’t force you, I let you choose… so choose to listen to and follow My Spirit and you will live. You will experience My abundant life. That’s My great desire for you because I love you and I am for you… now and always!
