ENOUGH OF BEING A NATURAL MAN

But people who aren't spiritual can't receive these truths from God's Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can't understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. - 1 Corinthians 2:14

The only way to live above the natural is to become a supernatural being. And for you to exercise dominion over supernatural powers that are working in cahoots with the devil, your life must be hidden in Christ, who exercises supremacy over the devil and his company. The natural man is highly vulnerable to deceit, demonic attack, torment and oppression of the devil. He is an unbeliever and lacks the stamina and stomach to stand up to the devil and upset his plan. Put in a different way, he cannot flex his physical muscles to achieve supernatural results.

Everyone born of a woman is a natural man, because humanity was born in iniquity; but anyone born of God is a supernatural being because he is born of the Spirit of God. Hence, a natural man lacks supernatural angelic body guards that minister to believers in Christ; he cannot understand the things of God because he cannot make sense of God's ways; he allows his senses to get the best of him while he considers the Gospel as foolishness. Because the thief on the left-hand side of Jesus failed to understand that Jesus is the Messiah for all mankind, he made mockery of Him while being crucified next to Him. He would have had a twist of fate from hell to paradise, by exercising faith in Jesus, if he has believed He is the Saviour, who willingly took the fall for the iniquity of humanity.

The natural man turns a deaf ear to the Gospel. This spells disaster if he ultimately fails to surrender to Jesus before death, the grim reaper, triggers his transition to the next world. Are you keeping God at arm's length while you are caught up with ungodly pursuit? While everything may appear so good for a natural man, he allows himself or herself to be fooled by the devil. He is oblivious of the fact that the devil earnestly loves company and is in high hope of taking many along with him to hell. Hence he uses deception and distractions to increase his network of companions.

Hence, if you are yet to surrender all to Jesus, don't wait till the eleventh hour when the door of salvation might have been closed against you. It would be disheartening to cry, "Had I known", when you could cry now to Jesus, to save and help you live for Him alone. Don't leave your life to chance, while you keep pushing back the day of your salvation. There is no better time to say yes to Jesus other than now. Why not talk to God right now to save your soul and give you a new beginning of a glorious and supernatural walk with Him.
