For the sake of keeping my posts short and sweet, and in chewable pieces, I’m going to publish this in smaller parts.
So, the question to be asking yourselves is: “where could she possibly be going with this?” Be on the lookout for Part 2. 🙂
Looking at ourselves like a battery, we contain positive and negative energy. As with a battery, it takes a wire to make the connection—sparking the energy inside of us. The world is a negative (–) wire; the Kingdom of God is a positive (+) wire. We are “sparked” by both.
The process of becoming Christlike involves redefining our current charge. The negative is being overtaken by the positive.
“The chemical reactions in the battery causes a buildup of electrons at the anode. This results in an electrical difference between the anode and the cathode. You can think of this difference as an unstable buildup of the electrons. The electrons want to rearrange themselves to get rid of this difference, but they do this in a certain way. Electrons repel each other and try to go to a place with fewer electrons.”
In the quote above, we see there is such a difference between the two, it creates instability. So, by nature, the + and – want to “rearrange themselves to get rid of the difference”. The Kingdom (+) being the polar opposite of this world (–) cannot co-exist in the same container. One or the other has to go .
Within a battery, there is a barrier (electrolyte) separating the Cathode (+)/Anode (–). Within us, it is the Soul (mind, will, and emotions) that is our electrolyte barrier.
- Our body is the container housing both the + and –.
- Our spirit-man has been born-again and is now positively charged by the Holy Spirit
- Our Soul, which was carnal (–), is now the battleground of conversion to +
Now, in a constant state of regeneration/transformation/renewal, our Soul is the key point of issue in our lives. Talk about a volatile spot! It is no wonder we go through such strong warfare in our mind, will, and emotions.
