Half -n- Half
The Double minded Man- diakrino
By David P. Ward
WHAT IS DIAKRINO?
The scriptures can really help us locate where we are and where we are going. Ever felt like HALF of you wanted to do the right thing and the other HALF of you didnít?
Why is there such a struggle?
Can we break the cycle of being HALF n HALF?
YES YOU CAN! We first must recognize how Satan wants us to question WHO GOD is and what HE said in HIS WORD.
From the very beginning we can see the Serpents tactics in trying to get us to question GOD.
THIS GREEK WORD DENOTES BEING HALF-HEARTED. ONE WAY ONE DAY, AND THE NEXT DAY A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FRAME OF MIND OR MINDSET. ONE DAY YOU SPEAK THE WORD, NEXT DAY YOU SAY ITíS NOT WORKING. ONE MINUTE YOU KNOW YOU HEARD FROM GOD, NEXT MINUTE YOU ARENíT SUREÖ.
King James Version (KJV)
3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
God had already made Man is His image, after his own likeness. Adam & Eve were ALREADY like GODS. (Genesis 1:26-27) The Serpent (Lucifer) started by getting Adam & Eve to question what GOD had already DONE and what GOD had already said!
DIAKRINO is the state of being HALF HEARTED. It is a trap of the enemy!
23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
8A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
CHOOSE TO BELIEVE GODíS WORD OVER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.
Choose to believe Godís word over your feelings!
Choose to LOOK into the PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY.
King James Version (KJV)
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
The Message (MSG)
22-24 Donít fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and donít act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
25 But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of Godóthe free life!óeven out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.
