Stop drinking milk and eat meat
Nursing milk is for babies and as they teeth they eventually stop depending solely on milk and start eating solid foods like meat. This is the natural order of growth and development in humans. This physical pattern is shadowed in spiritual growth and development. The physical process takes off without a hitch and pretty soon babies grow teeth and get weaned. Unfortunately although this physical pattern should be mirrored in the spirit, the process is drastically different. Not all are weaned at approximately the same time from spiritual milk; some develop faster spiritually while others do not. I am patient with my children for I understand that you have different personalities and spiritual matters although mirrored in the physical are still not as easily grasped because man is confined by what he sees and man most often only sees and operates in the physical world. I know all men; I know your capabilities and your strength. All these factors notwithstanding, I am surrounded by children who only drink the milk of the word and to make matters worse they have no desire for the meat. They have been in this state for longer than necessary because they have become comfortable in their immaturity. Most of them are still heavily carnal and have no desire for the deeper things of the spirit. Why? Because they know that in order to walk in the power of the spirit they must crucify their flesh and this is one thing they do not wish to do. They receive much pleasure indulging their flesh and have no desire to depart from it. They have taken my grace for granted, indulging their flesh when they want to and then coming to my house when the world gets too harsh on them. They come to beg for mercy and momentary forgiveness. Yes they only seek forgiveness for the moment knowing very well that they have every intention of returning to their fleshly ways. They think that behaving like ignorant children will excuse them from judgment. Many fall into this category, willfully ignorant, preferring to remain infants in the word instead of looking to mature in my word. They are playing a dangerous game with their soul for among them are those who will come before me in the day of judgment to plead their case saying, “Did we not do works in your name and call you Lord?” And I will reply to them, “Depart from me I knew you not, for my children are not surrendered to the flesh but to the Spirit, led by my Spirit.” Children it is time to mature, it is time to take inventory of your spiritual life for I am displeased with those who glory in the flesh. Beware, from you are coming those who will be left behind after the rapture. It is time to mature, not tomorrow, now, for even as now is the day of salvation so also it is the time to forsake the flesh and become spiritually minded. Eat meat, you have drunk enough milk.
