Job 37:19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 Teach us what we shall say to Him, for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.1 [Until the Spirit gives us all words with which to pray, our words and thoughts are repulsive to Him; until then, we should be in humble silence before the Lord so we can hear his teachings. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pray only as told."]

Ephesians 6:18-19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,1 and watching in this with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. [Teach us what we shall say to Him, for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness. Job 37:19. If you believe what you have heard the Lord tell you to pray then you will receive what you ask in prayer, as John carefully states: "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him." 1 John 5:14-15. Unless you have crucified your sinful nature, to receive his Spirit in sufficient measure to reveal His will, you have no idea what His will is. This is why the vast majority of prayers, made in the carnal minds of beginning believers, are never answered. When we can do His will, we hear what to pray from Him, and we know for sure such prayers are heard and will be granted. A true Christian is crucified and purified by the grace of God, able to do God's will on earth as it is done in heaven; that is a true Christian's sole purpose: to pray, to speak, and to act as God directs, thus to bring pleasure, honor, and glory to God. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pray only as you are told. If told what to pray for, they can be extremely effective; to pray as heard — righteous expectation." ]

 19 And pray for me, that utterance [of the word of God] may be given [by the Spirit] to me when I begin to speak2 — to confidently make known the mystery of the gospel, [For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what to say. Luke 12:12.]

1 John 5:14-15

 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. [He hears what you ask only if you ask according to His will; and unless you have crucified your sinful nature, to receive his Spirit in sufficient measure to reveal His will, you have no idea what His will is. Christianity suffers from the sad delusion that God is waiting for their prayers so that He can do their will on earth. They have no idea that they could do His will on earth as it is in heaven, NOW, by them taking up the cross and crucifying their carnal minds and evil imaginations to receive a new heart, new mind, and new Spirit; so that the believer is pure enough to be God's servant, hearing from God the words to pray before praying, hearing from God the words to speak before speaking, and seeing from God what is to be done before doing it, thus to bring pleasure, honor, and glory to God.]

 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. [Since He only hears if we ask according to His will, this is why the vast majority of prayers, made in the carnal minds of beginning believers, are never answered. When we can do His will, we hear what to pray from Him, and we know for sure such prayers are heard and will be granted. Notice how this verse alone, (quoted out of context, absent verse 14 above), creates a horrible error in understanding. From the Word of the Lord within: "Problems stem from people taking the Bible and saying, 'Look what this verse says.'"]

Romans 8:6-7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. [Do not make the mistake of thinking you are spiritually minded unless the Lord has destroyed your carnal mind, freeing you from sin, and freeing you from walking according to the desires of your flesh and the thoughts of your mind. When you are walking with the Spirit supplying your thoughts, your words to speak, and your deeds to be performed — only then you are spiritually minded, possessing the mind of Christ as your guide. The life of spiritual mindedness is following the light of Christ as He guides you; the peace of spiritual mindedness is quietness of the mind with unquestionable assurance and confidence forever.]

 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God. For it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be.3 [Since your mind cannot be subject to the Law of God, (the inner law on every man's heart), obviously your mind must be destroyed; bearing the cross destroys your carnal mind, which is then replaced by the mind of Christ. The cross is to man's carnal mind and man's will. From the Word of the Lord within: "That which lives in the enmity must be destroyed. We labor with a cursed mind. To make decisions is to live in your carnal mind. Those who follow their own brain will weep and mourn; there will be great pain. The mind is a terrible thing. You will receive a new heart and mind. Grow up into the mind of Christ, from which all good thoughts proceed." Until your carnal mind is destroyed, bear the daily cross, keep obeying all commands, and continue through life making the best decisions you know how.]
