The flesh is enemy to YOUR SOUL. The flesh attacks the soul through poisonous activities such as “…Adultery, fornication, uncleanness (impure), lasciviousness (Lustful, Wanton), Idolatry (+covetousness), witchcraft, hatred, variance (quarreling/disagreeing), emulations (ambition to be equal or excel others), wrath, strife, seditions (inciting rebellion), heresies (blasphemy), Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings (delight/pleasure to revel in luxury)…” Gal 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)
Many ‘re comfortable with sin in the name of grace…But “Shall we continue to live in sin that grace may abound? God Forbid” (Rom. 6:1)
We ‘ve been warned that those that do such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Mortify Your Members
Although you may want to do good and do the will of the Father according to the inward man, the law of your flesh is constantly warring against the law of your mind. Mortify your members, yield yourself to God and let the Lord purge your iniquity by mercy and truth.
