Unconditional Surrender

 

There is no other way to have the overcoming power needed in the last day battles.  Unconditional surrender means you voluntarily and willingly, lay down your every scheme, option, and opinion and follow My direction.  A hundred times a day you will offer your opinion and advice, and make decisions based on your knowledge and experience and still think you have unconditionally surrendered.  In the coming days, using this type of guidance system can cost you your life.  “For false Christs and false prophets will rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the strongest believer. [23] But take heed: behold, I have foretold you all things, so you can unconditionally surrender now!”  Mark 13:22-23.

Your source of wisdom makes all the difference!  Every believer has the choice of operating in one of two wisdoms.  Mans wisdom or My wisdom.  Now if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  [15] No matter how logical it may seem, this wisdom does not descend from Me, but is mans earthly sensual, devilish wisdom.  [16] For where envying and strife is , there is confusion and every evil work.  [17] Now notice the difference, the wisdom that is from Me is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  [18] With My wisdom the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace, by them that make peace,”   James 3:14-18.

In a group setting where the majority are operating in My wisdom, these two wisdoms are easily distinguishable, but when you are on your own, there is no one to help you make the corrections needed.  Partial surrender to My Spirit keeps you on the fence and in moments when a quick decision is needed, your carnal minds advice will be followed.  As you know, to be carnally minded, using man’s wisdom, is death; but to be spiritually minded using My wisdom, is life and peace.  [7] Always remember, no matter how good it seems, your carnal mind is My enemy: for it is not subject to My law, and neither it ever be.  [8] So then they that operate in this flesh wisdom cannot please Me,”   Romans 8:6-8.

Your only protection in the future is unconditional surrender!  “For as many as are led by My Spirit, they are My sons,”   Romans 8:14.
