Yielded or Yoked?

How do our members become instruments that further the Kingdom of God? It is not by reining them into Adamic goodness. It is by receiving grace that joins them to the Lord Who imparts Life to all those who yield their members. Our members are no longer instruments that further the devil’s kingdom, nor are they implements that display to humanity a way by which Adam achieves goodness. Instead, we enter a life that is already far above principalities and powers, a life that has gone beyond the sentimentality of human attachment to the religious status quo. People try to keep up with what religion says is right and true, so that their conscience may be appeased, but the standard they are keeping up is keeping them from allowing God to raise up His standard of love.

Our members do not have to be yoked up to the earth, wherein our emotions control our mind and body and wicked cravings enter in. People crave in their own self-reaction things that would compliment them in Adam. When that does not happen, they project their unsatisfied cravings in the form of anger, hoping to inflict other people with fear and to make them yield. People’s wicked cravings enter into religion as they demand things to be a certain way according to their human concepts. They fail to realize that God cannot use members that are linked to the earth but only those that are oriented through faith unto a heavenly flow.
