"The senses of God"
The enemy has done a really good job desensitizing a generation to accept ungodly systems and patterns. The same way a shot of novocaine desensitizes you to the pain of having a cavity drilled by your dentist, and lots of spicy food can desensitize you to more subtle flavors. In both cases, you become less perceptive, or less affected by a sensation or taste.
Nowadays its not uncommon to witness homosexual relationships on the streets or on television you'll even to see acts of violence & fear. We have come to a point where this is considered to be the norm. Now if we look a little deeper we can see even a desensitization in the church where we witness miracles of God seeing His love and power demonstrated to the lost and wounded, but yet many people will sit in their chairs reading Facebook statuses and viewing Instagram pics while God is right there in front of them. This is called "FAMILIARITY" and familiarity leads to a loss of respect for one another.
Matthew 13:55,57: [The familiarity of Jesus' Own family and neighbors caused them not to take Him seriously:] Is not this the carpenter's son? 57 And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. [See Mark 6:3 .]
John 6:42,43: And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, Whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He saith, I came down from Heaven? 43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
John 7:3-5: [Jesus' Own brothers mocked Him.] His brethren therefore said unto Him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that Thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest…. If Thou do these things, shew Thyself to the world. 5 For neither did His brethren believe in Him.
Familiarity often comes from seeing someone or situations with the eyes of the flesh (carnal thinking) instead of the spirit.
Romans 8:5-7: For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity [deep-seated hatred] against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
1 Corinthians 2:14: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
You see when the King walks in the room how will we respond?
God wants to increase your spiritual senses to bring us a greater understanding & awareness of His spirit. Galatians 5:16,17 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 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.
Do not allow yourself to become desensitized to the things of God instead begin to declare and decree the increase of your senses to be able to sensitize a generation with Gods glory and love that we see Gods glory become the norm. - Pete G #runwithrevival #radioairJesus
