Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly. – Proverbs 26:11
This is said to be a TRUE PROVERB: Who being sick with what he has eaten, casts it up again, and afterwards returns unto it and licks it up. We as the animals MASTER push the beast away and say, “GROSS, why would you do that, STOP!” We can also be creatures of HABIT. We have been given a NEW SPIRIT, a NEW HEART in Jesus Christ, yet we RETURN TO WHAT WE KNOW- something disgusting and filthy! It is another proverb that says: ‘You can tell a man’s religion in times of despair.’ As creatures of habit- We go to what we know! Paul addressed this in his very first epistle he wrote to the church in Galatia: “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel”. (Gal 1:6)
Leader, Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. We have a battle with our flesh, with our world and with our enemy and we need to remember that we are NOT who we once were, we are NEW CREATIONS with NEW HEARTS, and a NEW WAY to act and to THINK! Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Cor 5:17) But our OLD NATURE will want to fight the NEW: I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. (Romans 7:15) And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)
Conduit, Gravity is a FORCE on this planet much like SATAN: a powerful force on this earth and its only goal is to KEEP YOU DOWN! Lack of AWARENESS and understanding= Lack of Preparation= Destruction! Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross. Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? (Gal 3:1-3) When the flesh BARKS and wants us to RETURN to our VOMIT we need to REMEMBER what Paul told his spiritual son Timothy: for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Ezekiel prophesies for those of us that accept the NEW LIFE of CHRIST: A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.(Ezekiel 36:26) When the old flesh barks, remember that is who you ONCE WERE- NOT who you ARE! And THROW off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. (Eph 4:22-24) Today, ACT AS IF!
