THE BEAST ENEMY IN - A - ME

THROUGH THIS GOD GIVEN MESSAGE I WANT TO SHOW HOW PAUL IS WRITING THIS EPISTLE OF CHRISTIAN FREEDOM TO A PEOPLE WHO WERE WILLING TO GIVE UP THE PRICELESS LIBERTY THEY POSESSED IN CHRIST FOR A LIE .

PAUL WRITES THIS EPISTLE IN A TIMELY MANNER BECAUSE THE CHURCH TODAY IS EXPERIENCING THE VERY SAME PROBLEM.

WE WILL VENTURE OFF INTO THE LATTER OF THE FIFTH CHAPTER , WHEREAS, SO FAR, PAUL HAS BEEN SHOWING THE GALATIANS OF OPPOSITE EXTREME OF LICENSE, WHICH IS DEFINED AS IMPURITY. WHICH WILL BE THE CENTRAL THEME

TODAY.

SUBJECT

THE BEAST ENEMY IN - A - ME

SPEAKING OF FORNICATION & ADULTERY

I LOOKED UP IN MY AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY AND

SOUGHT OUT TO DEFINE THE WORDS ADULTERY & FORNICATION:

ADULTERY = INTIMACY BETWEEN A MARRIED PERSON AND ONE OTHER THAN THE LAWFUL SPOUSE.

FORNICATION = INTINACY BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN NOT MARRIED.

IN THIS ERA WE ARE LIVING IN TODAY IT APPEARS THAT THE BEAST HAS CONVINCED MANY OF US TO BELIEVE ADULTERY IS ALRIGHT, TO BELIEVE FORNICATION IS ALRIGHT, LICENSOUSNESS IS ALRIGHT.

THAT IS THE VERY REASON WHY THE SPIRIT OF GOD ELECTED THIS SUBJECT BECAUSE MANY OF US DON’T REALIZE THAT WE POSESS THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND THEREFORE ARE WARING WITH THE TEMPLE OF GOD WHICH IS THE BODY. WE HAVE IN THE CHURCH TODAY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HERE THIRTY AND FORTY YEARS AND JUST DON’T KNOW THAT THEY HAVE

THE TRAITS OF THE BEAST.

WE HAVE AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF CHILDREN IN THE CHURCH TODAY BUT THE BEAST HAS THEIR MIND, THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT WHATEVER THEY DO DOES NOT MATTER JUST SO LONG AS THEY GET TO CHURCH. WE HAVE THEM HERE EVERY SUNDAY AMENEN, BUT SOON AS THE DOOR SWINGS OPEN THE BEAST IS THERE AND WE MATURE CHRISTIANS HAVE ALLOWED HIM TO PERSUADE THEM BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT TAUGHT THEM THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG.

WE HAVE DONE EVERYTHING IN FRONT OF THEM.

WE OURSELVES HAVE DEFILED OUR BODIES WITH ACTS OF FORNICATION.

WE OURSELVES HAVE POLUTED OUR HEARTS AND MINDS WITH ACTS OF ADULTERY AND WE CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY SUZY HAS A NEW MAN EVERY WEEKEND, WHY JOHN CAN’T BE FAITHFUL TO HIS WIFE.

WE MUST EXCEPT JOHN AND SUZY ARE DOING JUST WHAT

THEY WERE TAUGHT TO DO AND WE HAVE THE ADACITY TO CLAIM

THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS OUR HOME.

SOME OF US TODAY MAY WANT TO REPENT RIGHT NOW.

I DON’T BELIEVE WE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE INDIVISUALS MADE OF THREE ELEMENTS:

1) BODY

2) SOUL

3) SPIRIT

THEREFORE IT WOULD BE FAIR TO SAY WHATSOEVER EFFECTS THE BODY EFFECTS THE SOUL AND WHATSOEVER EFFECTS THE SOUL EFFECTS THE SPIRIT. AND WHEN YOU HAVE EFFECTED THE BODY WHICH IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD, WHEN YOU HAVE EFFECTED THE SOUL WHICH BELONGS TO GOD, WHEN YOU HAVE EFFECTED THE SPIRIT WHICH IS GOD, YOU HAVE EFFECTED GOD.

1COR 6:19 - 20 SAYS:

YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS IN YOU AS A GIFT FROM GOD AND THAT YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN. FOR YOU WERE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: THEREFORE, BRING GLORY TO GOD, IN YOUR OWN BODY AND IN YOUR SPIRIT WHICH IS GODS.

FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD, THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO CONTROL YOUR OWN BODY IN A PURE, HOLY AND HONORABLE WAY, NOT AS THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW GOD AND ARE CONTROLLED BY THEIR PASSIONS AND LUSTS.
