PROOF OF A SPIRTUAL LIFE
Galatians 5:24, 'And they that are Christ's
have CRUCIFIED the flesh with the affections and LUSTS.'
WHAT ARE THE WORKS OF THE FLESH?
5:19-21 according to the New Living Translation, 'When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your lives will produce
these evil results: sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic
activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the feeling that everyone is
wrong except those in your own little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other kinds of sin. Let me tell you again,
as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will NOT inherit the KINGDOM OF GOD.'
WHAT IS LUST
OF THE FLESH?
I John 2:16-17 says, 'For all that is in the world, the LUST of the flesh, and the LUST
of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the LUST thereof:
but he that doeth the WILL of GOD abideth forever.' KJV
The New Living Translation explains I John 2:16-17 as,
'For the world offers only the LUST for physical pleasure, the LUST for everything we see, and pride in our possessions. These
are not from the Father. They are from this evil world. And this world is fading away, along with everything it craves. But
if you do the WILL of GOD, you will live forever.'
takes advantage of our NATURAL LUST, to tempt us through the vulnerability of a less than perfect HEART.
is LUST, mostly natural in a fleshly heart against our (perfect) SEALED SOUL, where CHRIST LIVES. The SOUL is SEALED by the
HOLY SPIRIT so that Satan cannot attack us there, but he can attack us in the LUST of the Flesh of this world that is seen
in the HEART and MIND.
Paul warned in Ephesians 6:10-18, exactly who we were warring against, ‘For we wrestle
not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers against rulers of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.’
Without diligence through prayer, the unchecked HEART and MIND can
once again become so wicked and corrupt so as to defile the SOUL. An example of such a situation is recorded in Hebrews 12:15,
'Looking diligently, lest any man, fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby
many be defiled.' These evil inclinations must be dealt with by resisting evil and making right CHOICES.
is influenced by the SOUL. If the SOUL is HOLY with Christ living within, Christ produces RIGHTEOUSNESS in the HEART. If the
SOUL is EVIL, unrighteousness is in the HEART. The entirety of the man is found in his SOUL. Is it HOLY? Or is it DEFILED?
Revelation 22:11, 'He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: And he, which is filthy, let him be filthy still:
And he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: And he that is HOLY, let him be HOLY still.' These scriptures are not
referring to the BODY, but to the SOUL.
The goal of this website is to reveal this: The WARFARE going on in the
BORN AGAIN is NOT in the SOUL, but is in the BODY that "groans" to be released in the 2nd REDEMPTION, which is the
"raising" of the BODY of the saints, for both the living and the dead "in Christ".
