The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.


have you ever went on a diet and found this out?
or have u a good story of this problem?

How can one avoid the destructive influences of the flesh? Paul is
clear...
a. We must walk in the Spirit - Ga 5:16-17
b. We must be led by the Spirit - Ga 5:18

Re: war with the flesh,do u have a story to share?
In Romans 7:14-25, Paul clearly describes the conflict that every believer is faced
with. There is a real tension between the old self that has been crucified with Christ
(Rom. 6:6) and the new self that is growing in its knowledge of how satisfying Christ
is in His person and His work.

Re: war with the flesh,do u have a story to share?
A. TWO OPPONENTS, FIGHTING FOR YOUR SOUL...
1. They are in opposition against each other - Ga 5:17a
2. Is the "Spirit" referring to the Holy Spirit, or the human
spirit?
a. There is certainly a war between the flesh and human spirit
- 1Pe 2:11; Ro 7:23
b. Yet I believe here in Galatians it has reference to the Holy
Spirit
3. The context of the epistle suggests that it is the Holy Spirit
a. Note Paul's earlier references to the Spirit - Ga 3:2-3; 4:6
b. Through the Spirit we eagerly wait for the hope of
righteousness- Ga 5:5
c. Paul's later argument "If we live in the Spirit, let us also
walk in the Spirit" would not make sense if the human spirit
is meant - Ga 5:25
d. Reaping everlasting life "of the Spirit" must refer to the
Holy Spirit - Ga 6:8
-- While the flesh pulls us in one direction, the Spirit would
have us go in another!

Re: war with the flesh,do u have a story to share?
The problem is, our society and culture has not only exalted, but glorified sins of the flesh. Therefore when one engages in this battle, possessing the awareness of both spirit and fleshly influences, it becomes increasingly difficult to resist the flesh. This is because society tells us it is good, the culture promotes it, which means that when we are attempting to overcome our flesh, it can be incredibly confusing and stressful. Our spirits know certain fleshly pursuits are evil, but when the world broadcasts them as good, it makes discernment all the more difficult. I deal with this shit everyday.

Be part of the world, but not of the world, its a continuous struggle isn't it, one gain on one level, a loss on an other, really you have to be a good alchemist, blending spirit/mental/and physical elements together to get the right balance between flesh and spirit, with the mental, the 3rd eye the one being witnessed to.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

Re: war with the flesh,do u have a story to share?
The flesh is the gateway to the demonic. Many times (unless it is generational, etc.), it is through the flesh that demons gain entrance into a person's life. We are first tempted by demons (the enemy works through his army of fallen angels) because they are seeking to gain entrance into our lives or carry out a plan to kill, steal or destroy us (see John 10:10), then once we give in, they become welcomed into our lives, and once they enter, they will serve as bad friends who will constantly seek to negatively influence us. Having a spirit of lust will be like working in an adult bookstore... it will work to wear you down and get you to give in. Without having that spirit, it is much easier to resist the temptation. But wait a minute, what about plain old temptation that is thrown our way on regular bases? We are not immune from that, are we? No,

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
