VERSE 17

IN EVERY ONE OF US WE HAVE A STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE FLESH AND THE SPIRIT. SOME GET THE VICTORY AND SOME DON’T.

THE FLESH IS CORRUPT AND CARNAL. IT OPPOSES EVERYTHING THAT THE SPIRIT REPRESENTS, MOREOVER, THE NATURE OF THE FLESH IS PRESENTED TO WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF CORRUPTING OUR SPIRITUAL BEING AND THE CARNAL NATURE OF MAN, BY THE SAME TOKEN, RESISTS EVERYTHING THAT IS SPITITUAL; THE BIBLE SAYS THAT " THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS, AND THE DARKNESS COMPRHENDED IT NOT (JOHN 1:5). ON THE OTHER HAND THE SPIRIT STRIVES AGAINST THE FLESH AND OPPOSES THE WILL AND DESIRES OF THE SPIRIT. ALTHOUGH OUR CORRUPT NATURE WOULD HAVE PROMPTED US TO DO EVIL. AS THE PRINCIPLES OF GRACE FROM GOD HE WILL NOT SUFFER THIS EVIL TO PREVAIL (SPIRIT). AND ALTHOUGH WE ARE ADHERANT TO THE GRACE OF GOD WE YET MEET WITH THE CORRUPT AND CARNAL NATURES (FLESH).

THAT’S TO SAY:

THE CONVICTION OF THE CONSCIENCE AND ONES CORRUPTION OF HIS OR HER OWN HEART STRIVES WITH THE SPIRIT MAN, HIS CONVICTIONS WOULD SUPPRESS HIS CORRUPTION AND HIS CORRUPTION SILENCES HIS CONVICTIONS.

SO IN A RENEWED MAN, WHERE THERE IS SOMETHING OF GOOD PRINCIPLE - THERE WILL BE A STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE OLD NATURE AND NEW NATURE.

VERSE 18 YOU MUST EXPECT A STRUGGLE BETWEEN FLESH AND SPIRIT AS LONG AS YOU ARE IN THE WORLD. THE FLESH WILL LUST AGAINST THE SPIRIT AS LONG AS YOU ARE IN THE WORLD. THE FLESH WILL LUST AGAINST THE SPIRIT AND THE SPIRIT AGAINST THE FLESH

BUT IF YOU ACT UNDER THE GOVERNMENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT WILL PREVAIL.

MATTHEW 26:41 SAYS:

WATCH AND PRAY, THAT YE ENTER NOT INTO TEMPTATION:THE SPIRIT INDEED IS WILLING, BUT THE FLESH IS WEAK.

VERSE 19 THE PRODUCTS OF THE CORRUPT AND THE DEPRAVED NATURE ARE CONDEMNED BY THE LIGHT OF NATURE AND BY THE LIGHT OF SCRIPTURE.

BROTHER PAUL SAYS IN LITTLE OR NO WORDS SOME OF THESE SINS, SIN AGAINST SOME OF THE COMMANDMENTS.

DESIRES OF YOUR SINFUL NATURES ARE:

1) SEXUAL IMMORALITY = IMPURE THOUGHTS

2) EAGERNESS FOR LUSTFUL PLEASURE = IDOLOTRY

3) PARTICIIPATING IN DEMONICE ACTIVITY = HOSTILITY

4) QUARRELING - JEALOUSY = OUTBURST OF ANGER

5) SELFISH AMBITION - DIVISIONS - ENVY - DRUNKEDNESS

BUTH WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CONTROLS YOUR LIFE HE WILL PRODUCE:

LOVE - JOY - PATIENCE - KINDNESS - GOODNESS - FAITHFULNESS - GENTLENESS AND SELF CONTROL.
