September 11, 2009, "Enabling and Disabling"

"Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
~ Ephesians 6:16 ~ Amplified Bible

"Do not quench the (suppress or subdue) the [Holy] Spirit; do not spurn the gifts and utterances of the prophets [do not depreciate prophectic revelations not despise inspired instruction or exhortation or warning]. But test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast. Abstain from evil [shrink from it and keep aloof from it in whatever form or whatever kind it may be. And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profance things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)."
~ I Thessalonians 5:19-23 ~ Amplified Bible

When we enable our sin nature or someone else's we by default disable the flow of the Holy Spirit. However, when we enable obedience to flow of the Holy Spirit we can see how the disabling of the sin nature to rule over our lives no longer becomes effective.
