Walk circumspectly!

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage" Galatians 5:1.

Christ shall profit you nothing, whosoever of you is otherwise minded; ye are fallen from grace.

Beware of the doctrine (leaven) of the Pharisees and Sadducees, men crept in unaware to deceive or persuade you to be otherwise minded. "I would they were even cut off which trouble you. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another" Galatians 5:12-13.

Make sure that you stay free, don't get entangled with any yoke of bondage, putting yourself again under the elements of the world. Christ made us free, that we be free indeed. Paul says, "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 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." Galatians 5:16-17.

It is a bad thing to follow false prophets because you end up not doing the things that you should. 

False prophets with their leaven will through fear subject you a life time to the works of the flesh ;  to "adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God" Galatians 5:19-21.

However, when you stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, you will be sons and your fruit will be  of the Spirit which "is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

Last but not least, Paul says;

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another." Galatians 5:25-26.

Let no man deceive himself and glory in man, walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise! Vain glory is you thinking another man is better than you, Christ made us equals in his body! In this journey "a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God..." 1 Corinthians 11:7

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…
