BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:7,8
An old friend who discipled me and taught me how to cast out demons used to say, "Deceived folks don't know they are deceived!" So true and many more professing Christians than you think are for lack of proper training and equipping, totally deceived!
There is an old Indian proverb that says, "There are two wolves in man," the question being, 'Which one is stronger?' The answer, 'The one you feed!' " So it is with us, we are supernatural new creations but we live in a fleshly body that wants to satisfy its need for lusts and pleasures and tries to starve the spirit man to death!
We as believers are bombarded today in this modern age of media with powerful images of lust and perversion, tempted on all sides to satisfy this creature we live in, our fleshly man! But praise be to God we have the victory in Christ who is greater than any spirit or temptation that would try and seduce us! If God is for us who can be against us?
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. Galatians 5:16,17
