Spirit Operating System: S-OS Version 9.29.9

Happy Tuesday!

WordPress keeps telling me to UPDATE: version 2.8.4. In order to MAKE sure all their users upgrade NOW, it looks like they have taken away some of the toolbox features for the old version… making the task of blogging far more complicated. For example: I can only see five lines of my text at a time!!!

Since I’m in between web guru’s at this time, I’m stuck tackling this task on my own… and it’s a little scary! The auto update feature will not work. If any of you know where I can FIND YODA, please point the way! lol

Two terms for the following discussion:

1. H-OS: the Human Operating System

2. S-OS: the Spirit Operating System

The Bible explains the born again experience in 2 Corintians 5:17 when Paul says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION; the OLD has gone, the NEW has come!”

In other words… we a person is born again, he trades in his OLD HUMAN OPERATING SYSTEM for a NEW SPIRIT OPERATING SYSTEM… and the OLD SYSTEM BECOMES OBSOLETE!

After this spiritual installation, we no longer deal with our problems like we used to under to H-OS. For example: when a person attacks us NOW, we pray against the SPIRIT motivating his actions… we do good to our attacker by praying for him and forgiving him… and even BLESSING him!

The learning curve from H-OS to S-SO is GIGANTIC… it takes some getting used to! Every new follower of Jesus undergoes the frustration of not knowing how to master all the features of the S-OS. And if one should try to go back and use the OLD H-OS… it will not function the way it once did.

Being a Christian is not a destination, it is a journey! And should we continue to WALK WITH GOD, we will be UPGRADED DAILY with newer and better versions of the S-OS!

So as you can see, humans are so much like computers in that we too can acquire a NEW OS and periodic software patches and updates! Romans 12:2 talks of this when Paul calls on followers of Christ to be TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING OF OUR MINDS!

Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be TRANSFORMED (upgraded) by the renewing of your mind. THEN you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Do not conform: But be transformed: By the renewing of your mind: THEN, you will be able to test (or experience) the BEST THAT GOD HAS!

It is our responsibility to LOG IN AND UPGRADE… or our S-OS will not continue to function as well as it once did. Here’s a simple two step process of automation:

1. DOWNLOAD the update: this comes from reading the Bible: we should download new information EVERY DAY!

2. INSTALL the update: this comes by praying: we’re supposed to challenge OLD human patterns with NEW biblical information EVERY DAY!

In addition to the auto upgrade settings I listed above, there are other ways we can optimize our S-OS… read good books, attend good church services, sing and worship God privately and with other believers, share faith and spread love to others… and anything else that helps to work new biblical truth into our minds and HEARTS!

Today is September (9), twenty nine (29), of the year two thousand and nine (9). I just downloaded S-OS version 9.29.9… and I installed it through prayer! Watch out world… I’VE BEEN UPGRADED!

I hope todays blog inspires everyone to UPGRADE daily… to download AND install EVERY S-OS feature available… and live the very best we can live! Even though this blog could have been written FAR better then it turned out… the idea is MIGHTY! Read it through 3 or 4 times throughout the day… meditate on the concept… schedule some time to LOG IN, DOWNLOAD, and INSTALL a mega version upgrade!

Have a amazing day everyone… love you all!

  1. Like a computer, we get "cookies", "file path errors",and "history" that attach to us. Those kind of files need to be deleted… so that we run more efficiently, and do not use any precious memory for junk! We need to let go of everything that keeps us from shining God's love, and doing His will.
    Chuck I love the vein of thought that you are in this morning. It is very creative and thought/prayer provoking. Vickie I like what you added too.

  2. Great illustration!! Think too of what happens to our computers when we DON’T download the upgrades to install the latest security patch? What happens to our OS system when we fail to keep it current? We are prone to get virus, worms and Trojans! A major computer crash can occur!

    From Wikipedia- “A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without the permission or knowledge of the owner.”

    Viruses can be divided into two types based on their behavior when they are executed, resident and non-resident.

    “Nonresident viruses immediately search for other hosts that can be infected, infect those targets, and finally transfer control to the application program they infected. Resident viruses do not search for hosts when they are started. Instead, a resident virus loads itself into memory on execution and transfers control to the host program. The virus stays active in the background and infects new hosts when those files are accessed by other programs or the operating system itself.”

    A virus needs to infect hosts in order to spread further.

    There is a lot more on this subject but I believe you all get the picture. Personally, I’m going for the updates, upgrades, installs, downloads and all that I can to keep myself free from malicious virus whether it be of the spiritual kind or of the computer. I choose to love and it’s only thru Christ and his love in me that I can share what I have. If I fail to recharge daily then ……..oh no!! Thanks Pastor, Great Blog!

  3. Thanks for the vote of confidence Pastor Chuck! I am so happy it came out on paper as it was in my head:) Carolyn, WOW!! You too are thinking as you said, “in the same vein” I see exactly what you mean too!!!

    So everyone make sure you clear your cookies and know the root source of all attachments to anything you choose to open up into your OS space.

  4. Now THIS is what blogging is all about! Vicki and Caroline: THANK YOU for adding SO MUCH value to this topic! I love this… EXCELLENT thoughts, well written!

    Anyone else care to weigh in on this HOT TOPIC????

  5. i love the word “UPGRADING” -it is the replacement of the product with a newer version of that same product. And referring to the topic, i believe GOD also love the word “UPGRADING” because in upgrading, there is a replacement .. well, the spiritual upgrading.

    Lots of people are care about the physical upgrading; thats why they go to the gym (which is oke), they go to upgrade and change their face or anything .. but let us care about the spiritual upgrade. You know, even the VIRUS is upgrading. And if we’re not always in the upgrading lifestyle and always too busy to upgrade, the virus will easily attack and we’ve lost our first love, our passion. we will eventually will come the level of “HANG” and then “FREEZE” or maybe “CRASH” and suddenly there’s a message appears like this “This program performed an illegal operation and will be SHUT DOWN”

    The word of GOD is sharper than any sword, IT OBSERVED THE DESIRE OF OUR HEART. (HEB4:12) This is the beginning of the UPGRADING. Word of God will observed things, DISCERN things in our life .. and after that, if you stay a lil bit longer, please wait to be UPGRADED in the Presence of God and stay a lil bit longer, please wait for a NEW YOU VERSION, a NEW YOU DOWNLOAD, a NEW GOD IN YOU DOWNLOAD. The new You is ready now!

    We dont want to be “SHUT DOWN” Not Yet, there more dreams to achieve, they’re more glory we should see, they’re more people to hear about the GOSPEL. So lets keep UPGRADED! SUPER THANKS PS CHUCK :))))))

  6. Woooohoooooooooo Essly!!!! I’m in my office working through a pile of work… it’s getting late and I want to be home with my family… and your comment comes through… and MY GOD, it just LIT A FIRE IN MY HEART! I love especially, your last paragraph… NOT YET, THERE ARE MORE DREAMS TO ACHIEVE, THERE IS MORE GLORY WE SHOULD SEE, THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE WHO NEED TO HEAR ABOUT THE GOSPEL!

    A beautiful meal before my late dinner! THANK YOU!
