Flesh vs. Spirit

The Discipline of the Holy Spirit

The true power of supernatural life is a power found in the moment-by-moment obedience to the Holy Spirit.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the moment you realize that you need a guide to achieve that which Jesus has already achieved in you.

But that’s a moment (miracle) and not a practice (blessing).

1 Timothy 1:5

But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience, and a sincere faith.

Faith and good conscience work hand in hand because the rejections of either “have made shipwreck of their faith.” 

Love of Jesus = Obeying His commands (WORD IN YOU)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit = Allowing Him to help you be obedient (PROMISES THROUGH YOU)

You cannot help others if you are not allowing the Holy Spirit control over your conscience.

2 Timothy 3:5

…having a form of godliness but denying its power.

The practice of “Holy Spirit obedience” comes from allowing Him to be the sole influencer of your conscience.

Making Supernatural Decisions

Allowing the “presence” to overwhelm your own decision making process by default – e.g. Adam and Eve cool of the evening

The Holy Spirit and your conscience are not the same,

A Conscience Can Become Polluted

I am of “good conscience” vs. I am of “God” conscience

Many liars, cheaters, and adulterers sleep quite well at night. 

Titus 1:15

To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

The human mind and conscience are capable of being defiled. The conscience is still present but in a state of defilement. 

The Holy Spirit Can Never Be Polluted

The Holy Spirit is a distinct person, unlike the human conscience. The Holy Spirit does not evolve within the individual. It is the same today as when we first received salvation and will be beyond our last day upon the Earth. 

The Holy Spirit cannot be conditioned into subservience or acceptance of any situation contrary to its work ordained by God. 

The conscience wrestles with self-dependence and reliance of genetic makeup, life experiences, and influences.

The Holy Spirit is a totally different entity that is in a constant battle with the flesh (conscience).

Those who have no Jesus have no Holy Spirit working on their conscience. 

Their actions are self-dependent and self-reliant and are prone to deception. They genuinely think they are doing right, but they are only doing right according to their self-reliance and self-promoting standards. Left unchecked by the Holy Spirit, they rush off towards a false sense of truth and righteousness (Adam and Eve)

2 Corinthians 1:12

For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you.

Is it My Conscience or the Holy Spirit?

1 John 1-6

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

If the supposed action leads to glorifying self or the flesh, it is not of God.

The conscience can deceive as its only compass for reaction and action is the present and past environment with the conditioning of mind and flesh.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

The Holy Spirit Led Conscience Calls Us To Higher Thinking

EG: Man being overbilled in a restaurant.

The human conscience is rooted in fairness, not divine grace and mercy. 

The Holy Spirit calls attention to sins (seemingly right actions) of our fleshly conscience.

Our conscience toward man can be deceived by tradition and worldly practices.

The movement of the Holy Spirit is not determined by societal norms, customs, or familial acceptance. He does not change by circumstance or the societal winds of change. Often the human conscience is comforted by the fact an action or decision is supported by the laws of the land. The Holy Spirit can influence the conscious, but not vice versa, because of His independent superiority.

Colossians 2:8

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces[a] of this world rather than on Christ.

Conscience Desires Comfort, The Holy Spirit Inspires

James 1:14

…but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.

The human conscience (even a good one) is invariably drawn to fleshly desires and comforts. (Good by whose standard?)

The conscience is closely related to the works of man, which are directly opposed to the goodness of God. 

Romans 9:1

I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit,

The believer’s conscience acknowledges the power and superiority of the Holy Spirit…
