MAKING YOUR HISTORY:
CONQUERING THE FLESH

“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. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: ...(Romans 8: 5-39 King James Version [KJV]).
Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus Yahshuah,
My brothers and sisters, I pray God bless your souls. Oftentimes, I fervently pray, my soul loves you, LORD. Those times I speak of, are not always the heavy-laden burden down times but also the times I feel lifted up in the Spirit. However, you feel the weight of the cross, as our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus felt the weight of the cross when he struggled to carry the cross up Calvary. Therefore, the sustained power of God, lifted the cross, in the one body, for the cross meant salvation through redemption resurrected to the quickening of rebirth; for being born again, a new creature, is the light of Christ Jesus that we, in the one body, carry each and every day.
Most importantly, to Conquer the Flesh is not as easily a done deal as even the children of GOD—-the elect seemingly contemplate every day, for we struggle in the war of flesh and spirit, for righteousness sake. Let GOD open your eyes to the Truth of demonic activity, near you. Do you know to whom you belong? Are we lost in this world yet again, the blind leading the blind?
More importantly, let your spirit be your guide to lead you out of the temptation that desperately and ultimately desires to take your life. Your disbelief deceived you in your waking hour when you were supposed to be awake to the false doctrines coming out of false prophets. Stay in the faith of Christ Jesus. Do not let the demonic activity lead you to the slaughter.
Moreover, your flesh appetite is controlled by you [a natural desire to satisfy a bodily need, especially for food. For example,”he has a healthy appetite". Also, amusement is the state or experience of finding something funny. For example, “we looked with amusement at our horoscopes"]. In research, we find “appetite is the desire to eat food, sometimes due to hunger. Appealing foods can stimulate appetite even when hunger is absent, although appetite can be greatly reduced by satiety. Appetite exists in all higher life-forms, and serves to regulate adequate energy intake to maintain metabolic needs.”(Wikipedia.org). Furthermore, in research (18, September 2017, Semeco, A.), we find that “a loss of appetite occurs when you have a low desire to eat. Different factors can cause poor appetite, including mental and physical illness. If your lack of appetite lasts for more than a couple of days, it can cause weight loss or malnutrition.” (healthline.com).
Howbeit, we do not understand the appetite of the Spirit? Jesus said, Feed my sheep.[John 21: 15-17 King James Version (KJV),
“So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”]. In 1611, we find research, “King James Version, John 21: 17:
