Certainly the untransformed mind is the problem
2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;May 12, 2014 at 7:31 pm #381863942767Participant

Quote (Nick Hassan @ May 12 2014,08:17) Hi 94,
is this written?
Quote 1 John 2:16
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.
Quote Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Love in Christ,

Yes the inner battle can only be won once we are in Christ.

We are all close to death.
We are all approaching death and do not know how far off it is.
A thought that focuses the mind.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?April 16, 2018 at 12:44 pm #822295
2 Kings 13.14f
When Elisha became sick with the illness of which he was about to die, Joash, the king of Israel came down to him and wept over him…Elisha died and they buried him.
Even prophets, alive in the Spirit, suffer illness and die.
Be prepared.May 25, 2018 at 8:15 am #829374
‘Then the dust will return to the earth as it was and the spirit will return to God Who gave it.’
Jesus Christ was the first human whose body did not corrupt in the grave.
His resurrection in his fleshly body fulfilled the sign of Jonah.
We still die our bodies corrupt. Is that our hope too?
No he had to be equipped for heavenly life.
1 Cor 15
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body , It is raised an imperishable body,it is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So also it is written’ the first Adam became a living soul’. The last Adam became a life giving spirit. However the spiritual is not first, but the natural, then the spiritual. The first man is from earth, earthly; the second man is from heaven. As is the earthly, So also are those who are earthly; and as to the heavenly, So also are those who are heavenly. Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.July 6, 2018 at 7:28 am #831844
The body without the spirit is dead.
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit;
neither hath he power in the day of death:
and there is no discharge in that war:
neither shall wickedness deliver those who are given to it.
Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily,
therefore the heart of the sons of man is fully set in them to do evil.
God sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.
God is patient and kind to all not wanting any to perish.
God He is in control over life and death, and the consequences.
Do not take Him for granted but act while you have the opportunity.July 13, 2018 at 12:23 pm #832261
Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he himself, likewise, also partook in the same,
that through death he might render powerless him who has the power of death, that is the devil,
and might free those who, through fear of death, were subject to slavery all their lives.
Satan answered the Lord and said,
’Skin for skin! Yes all that a man has he will give for his life.
However put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face’
For what I fear comes upon me, and what I dread befalls me.
The hope brought by the resurrection of Jesus Christ is at least meant to free us from the fear of death.
Satan can be allowed to damage our bodies and our minds, and to take our lives too if God removes the hedge we pray for.
Fears still rule the disciples of the flat earth movement it seems, and they want us to share them. Misery loves company.
