This morning I turned on the computer to read the news and saw in one certain news story, this statement: “My body, my choice.”
The statement was made concerning the right to refuse the V. Mandate. The article went on to say that it was the same statement that “People use to defend their right to abortion“…. [they just say… It is MY BODY and I can do whatever I want with my own body!]
Will such an argument be a correct one to the Born Again Believer in Christ?
Will a true and obedient Christian be able to ever say this about his body and his rights to his body actions?
The answer must be NO, based upon Scripture that teaches us all that the Body must be Crucified or put to death and not allowed to live as it wishes.
Take for instance what Paul said concerning his life and person:
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
What part of the above do men not understand? The Apostle Paul said that the BODY is the temple of The holy Ghost and that the Holy Spirit lives inside the body.
It follows then that the because of this the believer’s body is not his own!
Jesus died and paid a very high price, his own blood and gave his own life, to save men, therefore the Body of the one bought is not his own to do with whatever he wants to do, but, he is not is own.
Before one can give away his body he then must ask first the one who owns him. or has bought him.
This does appear to be very hard for some in the World to receive and it does also appear hard for many who are Believers and [saved persons in Christ] to receive and practice.
The difficult seen is many do not wish to even think that God owns them, or that you are not your own, [or that they are not the owners of their own life]. When Jesus was walking on Earth he said one day to his followers this:
“Jesus said unto them, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.”” John 6:53-57.
The day Jesus said the above the Scriptures tell us that many went back and would not follow him no more. It was apparent that this saying offended them.
For what reason was this offensive? I believe the reason was that men did not want to be told what to do with their life.
Many want their way, and they refuse to walk away from their own desires and their own life. It is then hard for many to die to self, totally living a life of dependence upon another.
After all they reason, is not my body mine to do with what i want? “No,” comes back the answer. “You are no longer your own, but you and everything you are is because of Me. I AM The LORD.”
Jesus said again:
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” Luke 6:42.
If Jesus is “Lord of your life” then do the things The LORD says! Many profess that Jesus is their LORD but refuse to do what He tells them to do. Is this acceptable. NO? It is not acceptable to claim to be a follower of Jesus The LORD, and then live your own life.
Not even you have the right to over ride Jesus’ commands. What Jesus The LORD wants is Obedience to all his Words and Commands.
““He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
Jesus answered and said unto him, “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent Me.”“ John 14:21-24.
In these above verses we discover that Jesus The LORD looks to see if we Love him by keeping His words and commandments.
After all, Jesus is The LORD. If one professes him as Lord [that Lordship means one does what He says], then he will obey The LORD.
Can a man be right then saying my body is my own to do with it what I want? Of course the answer must be NO.
The believer is not his own, but has been purchased by the Blood of Jesus his Lord. His life is not his anymore, but he becomes the purchased possession of The LORD.
Will The LORD want his Servant/s to be V.? Well, one must ask The LORD first. Upon asking The LORD you will find your answer.
The World today is mandating that all be vaccinated. Well, those who belong to The LORD, must seek The LORD for The LORD’s answer to that question.
It then is a spiritual question, and must be settled spiritually. One must consult his LORD.
In the searching I personally believe the Scriptures that say: your body is The Temple of The Holy Spirit.
The question will arise then Is the v. going to help me or hurt me? If you are unsure as to what the V. will do and how it will effect you, and if you are in doubt, do not do it.
It should not be taken if it will hurt you. [do some research and ask for proof that this vaccine will help you].
In your research I believe you will find it will not, and it is really not even a vaccine, but something else designed to some outcome in your life concerning your [future life], and if that is not enough, [it is designed to conform you to some World set of rules or political agenda].
My question is then my body my choice? Is it? It is not then the believers “Choice to choose for himself”, but it is The LORD’S Choice. It then becomes My body, …………. His choice, for I am his and my body is his temple.
Would God give his Temple to worship the World? none less, the political world?
Jesus said: Love not the world or the things in the world... (1 John 3)
He “JESUS CHRIST …. YESHUA” is LORD of the Heavenly Kingdom, and it His Kingdom in which I seek to serve and be part and even made a Servant.
He is the Most High God, and there is none other on Earth larger or of greater rank then Him.
Seek The LORD and choose his way and walk in it and he then will direct your path. Stop listening to yourself and your desires [body desires and fears, etc] and listen to The LORD and his desires for you his servant.
Just do it. He will bless you.

I have written this Teaching in obedience to my Holy Spirit Teacher. He teaches me all things he has heard Yeshua say, and will not speak of himself.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” John 16:13-15.
