“Did you know that your fuel for the engine of your car or any combustion engine can go so bad where it won’t even light with a match?
Did you also know that it can gum up your engine so badly that every piece would need to be taken apart and cleaned one at a time and reassembled in order for it to properly burn with high-efficiency?
This is very true in the natural and you may have experienced serious problems in the past with a situation like this, without even knowing it. However this has very little consequences when compared to kingdom fuel, for when Kingdom fuel goes bad all of My Father’s Kingdom becomes unclear and rough running to the point where problem after problem arise because there is no power.
The worst situation in My Kingdom is to face the enemy with no power. Can you imagine facing the smallest demons and having them laugh at you because you have no power, causing you to look like a spiritual yo-yo in the presence of darkness.
This is one of the main reasons for getting up and turning the channel, or throwing the magazine away, or turning the music off. Do not in anyway take these things lightly or you will find yourself in a life-and-death situation without knowing it, (Matthew 17:19-20).
The fact is, the no power problem comes from the same issue in the natural and spiritual, open containers and age! You will see that within weeks if your container when left open will cause the octane level to significantly deplete to a level where the engine will barely run if at all. In the spiritual if you leave your spiritual container which is your soul man, your (mind, will and emotions) open to all the elements of the enemy you will find your power is depleted to a level that the smallest demon can harass you, and bring you to a level of discouragement where you want to quit over the smallest things.
The key issue is, what are the elements? These elements are so simple that in most cases they are laughed at and even toyed with bringing relievers into a dangerous situation, (Romans 1:21-27 AMP).
Spiritual Open Containers:
The caps are your eyes and ears that are open to feed your old nature, and the container is your soul man.
When your eyes are i to watch things that hurt My Spirit and your ears open to hear things that make my spirit grieve. What are the elements that parallel with open containers?
Simple things: R-rated movies, with sexual scenes and the (F) word are used. Jokes that lead you to think in a sensual way. Anything that would not cause your soul man to expand and your Spirit man to deplete, would be considered equal to leaving cap off are a negative element.
Leaving the container open would be tantamount to not walking away from a dirty joke, or watching something that you know My Spirit would be grieved at, “so then those who are living the life of the flesh catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.
But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the Holy Spirit of God really dwells within you directs and controls you. But if anyone does not possess the Holy Spirit of Christ, he is none of His he does not belong to Me, is not truly a child of God,” (Romans 8:8-9 AMP).
