- Youngs Literal Bible
8:9 In the Spirit - Under his government. If any man have not the Spirit of Christ - Dwelling and governing in him. He is none of his - He is not a member of Christ; not a Christian; not in a state of salvation. A plain, express declaration, which admits of no exception. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear!
Ro 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit. It has just been shown that he who is under the sway of his fleshly passions is at war with God, cannot please him, and is spiritually dead. But the Christian is under the influence of the Spirit if the Spirit of God dwells in him. It does dwell in him if he is a new creature, "minding the things of the Spirit" (Ro 8:5). The Spirit of God. Observe that the Spirit is spoken of in this verse both as "the Spirit of God", and "the Spirit of Christ". Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not his. The proof that we have this indwelling Spirit is that we "mind the things of the Spirit" (Ro 8:5) and bear its fruit (Ga 5:22,23).

Romans 8:9 is very clear to me the way it 's stated! If you have not the spirit are have not made Christ your Lord and Savior of your life you do not belong to God Christ.

The Word of God is Holy as Himself. To be a true christian one must know Jesus Christ as the ONLY Mediator between God and mankind, the ONLY Redeemer of sinful men because He paid the price for "my " redempion with His Own Life shedding His Precious blood to purge the sinner from ALL his sins and anyone that understood this and RECEIVED Him as his her Personal Saviour, HE placed that sinner in the family of God, however, we are still in this world manipulated buy satan and his demons and the weak christian is often put down by his attacks and deceptions yet, the christian that falls and sins before God, cannot blame the devil for he is responsible for his actions, my question is IF and WHEN a christian falls in sin and does not come out of that sinful situation, was he ever a christian, even though he professed to be? I am familiar with Gods Word and cannot reconcile the two IF a christian, will always be one or because of his sin it proves that NEVER been one?

Carnally minded Christians truly cannot be subject to one another,nor subject to The Royal Law of Liberty of The Spirit of life in Christ Jesus! As it 's written in Rev.3 1,2,living yet are dead!They have "perfect " works before people,but not perfect before The One Who has The 7 fold SPIRIT of GOD!Foolish virgins lacking The Anointing POWER to produce as JESUS! He is coming so soon,let 's exhort one another daily and so much more! HOLY GLORY!Even so COME LORDJESUS! HIS great Grace be with your spirit! My perfect LOVE be with you all in contact connection with The Holy Ghost of JESUS!

this is a very crucial statement which almost everybody has to understand how important a man should bear the spirit of Christ so we can be assured that we are truly Christians. Being a Christian never before I understood because when I was been a churchman and I thought I was already a Christian but it was a very sad thing when I found that it requires for me to have the Spirit of Christ so that I can be a Christian. I never before understand what the spirit is not even the explanation of some pastors could satisfy me. Most people are in danger when they believe that they are Christians when they don't because the Spirit of Christ is not in them. The proof in this is because they continue in sinning nor having fear of the Lord. Most people never separated from the world or separated from all work of this sinful world, so that it is impossible for them to walk in the Spirit but rather in the flesh.
