For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. (Romans 8;5-7).’Be careful now, you’ve been diagnosed with covid and because you don’t have any symptoms today don’t mean you wont have any symptoms tomorrow.’Thanks Nurse!I hate negative talk by folks thinking they are helping you,  Actually they are feeding you with opinions rather then truth.According to this scripture the carnal mind is emnity against God think of it emnity that is at odds with God. ore in opposition to God and his word. or something that opposes the truth. further, ones opinions is ‘not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.’ So it’s pointless talk that opposes God’s laws. The carnal man thinks, talks and acts out of his human nature and what’s more to ‘to be carnally minded is death!’ Oh how folks love to speak death over you! thinking that they are helping you and giving good advice. The carnal man has a carnal mindset. An unbelieving heart and is at war with God, for they speak death over people when in fact they think they are speaking life, and giving good advice to help you live longer!These folks live according to the flesh, not according to the Word. I was quite surpised yesterday when before this occasion another nurse informed me I had Covid. the test she had done on me had just shown positive. Of course i responded, well i have no symptoms and I feel fine. I knew in my heart that tests can often be false and thats how I saw things. Well she said a person can have Covid and not show symptoms. Now to me thats ridiculous. If there’s sickness or disease in a body there is always a sign or a symptom, hidden or evident. If it cannot be proven then theres no evidence.  I did not believe here. I was not in denial, It’s actually what I knew to be true with my body.

FAITH works when God’s WORD is the very ‘evidence’ in your mind and body and FAITH is never without evidence (Hebrews 1:1).

I thank the Lord that for the past two years or so the pandemic has not touched me. What’s more as a dialysys patient I have been blessed to survive it as I am considered a vulnerable patient. Espcially that I refused to be vaccinated even though I had 5 percent working function of my kidneys. I choose to trust God, and thank the Lord he has kept me even though I spend three mornings each week with those who have kidney failure and covid symptoms. God is Good. I want to testify with the mind of Christ, God is good. He is my preserver and keeper.The carnal mind is emnity against God. EMNITY: logic without God’s opinion. Carnal reasoning discounting God. Emnity in the Greek Echthra’ from ‘Echros’ meaning ‘enemy’ The Mind of the carnal is an enemy of God.For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. (Romans 8:7NLT). For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. (ESV) The friendship of the world is “enmity with God” (James 4:4; 1 John 2:15, 16). The “carnal mind” is “enmity against God” (Romans 8:7) so that with the mind we cannot please God (Romans 8:8). Without The Lord mand unregenerated mind follows its natural course of doubt unbelief and fear. Filled with negativism is opposes the truth of God himself. Sure many have a positive mind. but I read the other day how even Tony Robins admitted to the folly of having a positive mind. Yes positivism without a transformed mind through Christ is temporary. Only Christ has the power to transform ones belief from being world ruled to God ruled.Let me conclude with this. A few days the Lord spoke to me through a song I heard online. It’s an old song entitled; I Need no other argument. The words struck me because I see the folly of reasoning with folks who know it all yet dismiss the Lord. Through the words of this powerful hymn I discovered that Christ alone is my argument and that settles the issue. Here are the words.My faith has found a resting place,Not in device nor creed;I trust the Ever-living One,His wounds for me shall plead.I need no other argument,I need no other plea;It is enough that Jesus died,And that He died for me.Enough for me that Jesus saves,This ends my fear and doubt;A sinful soul I come to Him,He’ll never cast me out.My heart is leaning on the Word,The written Word of God,Salvation by my Savior’s name,Salvation through His blood.My great Physician heals the sick,The lost He came to save;For me His precious blood He shed,For me His life He gave.Stay positive.Paul.
