I Die Daily
1 Corinthians 15:31
We need to be filling our lamps and trimming our wicks, which means getting rid of sin. We have the Ruach HaKodesh, the Spirit of Truth, to lead and anoint us to wield the sword of the Spirit as we keep fighting the good fight of faith while getting rid of those things that pull us down. YAHshua (Jesus) is raising us up in supernatural capacity to where we are to live, move, and have our being in the Spirit.
We cannot live in the Spirit as long as we are earthbound in our thoughts. We are not to be double-minded, religious lip servers like the majority of believers. They do not know YAHshua, they know about Him, they can teach about Him, they can speak about Him, but they do not know Him. They have not been immersed in His presence where He can change them from glory to glory because they are in the flesh. They are not in the Spirit worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth.
The flesh is not dragging His remnant down to this earthly realm because they are living and breathing in the kingdom. They did not get there overnight; they have been working out their salvation, crucifying their flesh, in order to be a pure, spotless, and blameless bride. His remnant is horrified at how far short they fall and pray as Paul, “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?” (Romans 7:24) This body leads to death. Paul says flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom of YAHveh (the LORD) (see 1 Corinthians 15:50). We have to be rid of the flesh.
People minimize what that really means. They think that when we leave this body, we get rid of the flesh. That is not what Paul was stressing. He was stressing that the imperishable has to overcome the perishable. Not just when we die—but now, we are to be dying daily. Previously Paul says, “I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Messiah YAHshua our Master, I die daily. …Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame” (1 Corinthians 15:31,34).
