12-30-2012- CHRISTIAN LIVING IS HARD IN THIS WORLD


COLOSSIANS  3: 1-10 = 

(1) IF YOU THE BE RISEN WITH CHRIST, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST SITTS ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.

(2) SET YOUR AFFECTIONS ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH.

(3) FOR YOU ARE DEAD AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST, IN GOD.

(4) WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YOU ALSO, APPEAR WITH HIM GLORY.

(5) MORTIFY THEREFORE YOUR MEMBERS, WHICH ARE UPON THE EARTH; FORNICATION, UNCLEANNESS, INORDINATE,(PASSION) AFFECTION, 

EVIL DESIRES, AND COVETOUSNESS, WHICH IS IDOLATRY: 

(6) FOR WHICH THINGS SAKE, THE WRATH OF GOD COMES ON THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE:

(7) IN THE WHICH, YOU ALSO LIVED SOME TIME, WHEN YOU LIVED IN THEM.

(8) BUT NOW YOU ALSO PUT OFF ALL THESE; ANGER, WRATH, MALICE, BLASPHEMY,FILTHY COMMUNICATION OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.

(9) LIE NOT TO ONE ANOTHER, SEEING YOU HAVE PUT OFF THE "OLD MAN", WITH HIS DEEDS;

(10) AND HAVE PUT ON THE "NEW MAN", WHICH IS RENEWED IN KNOWLEDGE, AFTER THE IMAGE OF HIM WHO CREATED HIM: 


"REMARKS"

WITH ALL OF THOSE WORDS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD MAN AND THE NEW MAN.

OUR OLD MAN, IS THE ONE THAT DID ALL THE THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T DO. 

THE NEW MAN, IS THE ONE THAT HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN, AND DOESN'T DO THOSE THINGS, HE USED TO DO.

IN THIS WORLD, WHERE LIFE IS LIKE LIVING IN A GARBAGE DUMP, FOR THE MOST PART, AND IF IT COULD BE ANY WORSE, SOME RAYS OF INTERMITTENT LIGHT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH IS SOME SENSE OF STILL MANAGING TO SURVIVE IN THIS DARK WORLD, IN THE PURITY AND HOLINESS, GOD, YAH'WEH, DEMANDS OF EACH OF US, WHO HAVE PUT HIS NAME, ON OUR HEARTS.

IT'S STILL OUR DUTY TO STAY CLEAN SPIRITUALLY, DESPITE THE BATTLE OF THE FLESH AND THE SPIRIT.


GALATIANS 5: 16-17 = 

(16) THIS I SAY THEN, LIVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT AND YOU SHALL NOT, FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH.

(17) FOR THE FLESH LUSTS AGAINST THE SPIRIT AND THE SPIRIT LUSTS AGAINST THE FLESH: AND THESE ARE CONTRARY, THE ONE TO THE OTHER: "SO YOU CANNOT DO THE THINGS, THAT YOU WOULD. 


THIS IS AS POWERFUL A DESCRIPTION OF HOW HARD IT IS, TO LIVE IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS, AND THIS ONE WE LIVE IN, IS THE WORSE.

DISTRACTIONS ABOUND EVERYWHERE AND THESE DISTRACTIONS ARE SO DIRECTIVE, THEY INVADE EVERY FIBER OF OUR BEING.

TELEVISION, INTERNET, MOVIES, VIOLENT AND SEXUAL GAMES, PORNOGRAPHY, WHORE HOUSES, SWAP COUPLES SEXUAL ORGIES, HOMOSEXUALITY, LESBIANS, AND WHATEVER OTHER VILE AND EVIL LUSTS OF THE FLESH THERE IS.

AS I SAID IN ANOTHER ARTICLE, OUR INVENTIONS ARE DESTROYING OUR MINDS AND SOULS.

IS IT ANY WONDER, SATAN, THE DEVIL, THE god OF THIS WORLD, HAS UNDERMINED THE WORLD, AND BLINDED THEIR SENSE OF MORALITY.

IT ALL STARTED IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, WITH EVE, WHEN SHE HANDED SATAN, THE DEVIL, THE KEYS TO THIS WORLD, BY HER BEING DECEIVED BY SATAN, THE DEVIL, AND FORCED GOD, YAH'WEH, TO COME DOWN TO EARTH, TO REDEEM, WHAT SATAN, THE DEVIL, STOLE FROM HIM.

BUT IT HAS ALL BEEN WORKED OUT, AS GOD, YAH'WEH, HAS OVERCOME THE DEVIL, SATAN, AND WILL EVENTUALLY BE ON TOP AGAIN, AT THE END OF TIME, WHEN THE DEVIL, SATAN, WILL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE, AND TORMENTED FOREVER.
