Carnally Minded Vs Spiritually Minded was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 9th of March 2022 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points from Romans 8:5-13:
We are either controlled by the flesh or controlled by the Spirit, even as children of God.
The plan of the devil is to keep you controlled by the flesh so that you would not enter the fullness of God’s plan and purpose for you.
The activities you are involved in is a pointer to what we are controlled by – whether the flesh or the Spirit.
The first result of being carnally-minded is death. All of us have powerful glorious destinies in God, and the devil knows it. So he comes to negotiate you out of it.
You are operating in the flesh anytime you reason something out without the influence of the Holy Spirit.
The second problem of being carnally-minded is that it is enmity with God (it is hostile towards God).
The voice of the flesh is hostile to the plans and intents of God for your life.
The third problem of being carnally-minded is that it cannot please God. And Heb 11:6 says that without faith you cannot please God. It therefore means that if you are in the flesh then you cannot be in faith (that’s one of the reasons a lot of our faith projects don’t pull through)
You must learn to recognize the voice of the flesh and run away from its dictates. You are to deliberately not cooperate with what the flesh wants.
Everything in life is deeply spiritual. The devil does not have a direct access to your life; what he does is to make you fleshly so that he can gain entrance into your life.
It is by the Spirit that you should mortify/kill the deeds of the flesh. People who are dead to the flesh don’t count insults.
Every time you know you are to pray but you don’t pray, the devil is negotiating you out of something.
