Desires of the flesh/ desires of Holy Spirit

Romans 13:14 New International Version (NIV)

14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.[a]

2 Corinthians 10:5 New International Version (NIV)

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

Know today, it is thought(s) that turn you away from the truth








For me to want to do good, and if can, it makes me a Howard better than you, if not it makes me guilty of:

And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?




For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.





And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.





For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.




And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.




Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.




not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;




For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.



Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:




Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.






James 1:6-8 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

James 4:4-6 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

1 Peter 4:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you. But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:




Or is trying you, has tried you and might try to try you again. 

So stop, the thought(s) that take you away from the truth of The Love provided for you in risen Son given you from Father to have, hold and Cherish forever in thankfulness

Do you not want peace, fairness, and justice? God has it for you to have and hold onto forever.

Yet we all go through troubles to either deny God or decide not to deny God. 

Psalm 23

A Psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


But I do want, what about you? Restores our Soul, is the Soul dead, so how is it restored?

Leads us, do we listen or are we too busy thinking?

I shall learn to Fear no evil

Regardless of whatever, anyone against me, thank God my cup runs over the top in the risen Jesus Christ, onto you all. To see to turn to Father in risen Son and ask for this new life to flow through us.

It starts with turning to Father of the risen Son to be taught new in Love, his type of Love, that no other can or has done unselfishly. 

1 Cor 13:4-7 is God's type of Love, ready to be put in you too, and not take credit for it. All credit given to God Father and Son forever.

Learning this, not to think, just hear from God Father and Son, hear others as well, just taking it all to Father in prayer by Son to hear truth of whatever heard as real, or not. 

Is it not how Eve fell, thoughts over whether or not God had told Adam and her the truth?

Has or does that happen to you too?

Homwardbound

PS, you decide which to listen to, your flesh desires as have or not? Tell God, God listens, and tells you what is best, even when not one sees it as is best.

Learning to listen to God over it all. Listen to all, just turn to God to discern the truth of what you hear and or read.

The Bible holds a house of Gold time to ask fro discernment from God not self or mankind

The problem is to Fathom it. What does it mean from God to us each person? As I see, I can't see on my own

What I do see now, after many years of striving to see is::::::::;;;;;\
\\

The entire Book is about God's Love for all of us, in flesh and blood. 
Which now translate as Gold. 
Not any of this Earth's Gold. I see that now for sure. 
God himself so deeply loves us all, that he sent the one and only Son that never sinned against him ever.

He was and is the one and only one that was born of a Woman from the tribe of Judah, As a Virgin, never had sex with man, prior to her first Pregnancy. Wow, Woe is me

Isaiah 6:1-6 New International Version (NIV)

Isaiah’s Commission

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
    the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.

To me, I hear this: Isaiah saw the day of taking away of Sin, and testified to this happening one day.

Saw the sacrifice for us all to be given it, too. As John in John 1:29 testified of John the Baptist, that the Savior was here to take away Sin, ALL Sin\


Is that done today? John 19:30 states it is Finished, as Jesus did Testify that he was here, not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill the Law, and the Prophets, that testified of him. Matthew 5:17

Now see verse 18, not one tittle of the Law will disappear until ALL LAW is fulfilled


Why is that? I mean he died fro all the world, one time to take away sin, did he not? John 1:29, testifies to that. Col. 1:21-23 testify to this too, along wioth Hebrews 9:14-17


So what is the Law still in effect for? Or to who is it still in effect for?

Can it be the Believer, that God has accepted? NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the Law is still in place for to the Law Breaker, Yes? A Jawbreaker fact Jack!

So if you in him, by beleif to he is risen, then Father is at work to teach you truth over error.

Are you willing to go in prayer from inside out and be turned about? Father knows, who is who, what each and everyone's purpose is in belief to his Love for them. offered in the risen Christ after his death took away all sin in his one time death.

Acts 20:21, is the call to all to either turn to God or not. It matters not if one says they believe or not to others, God Father of in of Risen Son knows each persons motive, That is what to be looking at, at least this I see.
Even as King David, after having sex with Bathsheba, got her pregnant, and tried covering that up.
Even got her Husband killed at war, having him put on the front line.

Then David got Confronted by Nathaniel the Prophet of God and told David of this happening, not telling David w it was David that did these things.
David's response, we need to get that person!
Then Nathaniel told David it was David.
Note: 
David was alone with Nathaniel and got exposed in his wrongs! David could have continued, and even killed Nathaniel. 
Instead, David repented to God not man. 

And so was accepted in, to see truth over error. Time for me to do that too, what about you? Have I hid, and made up, stuff and ended up harming others in that process? YES~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have, And if you have too, turn to God in confessing to God, and be made new by him in his Love through Son for you too

Thank You

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6 NIV

Are you, I and others confident in that verse posted in the Title? how will or do you, I and others respond to this verse?
Do I just say, okay, and move onward, not worried over whether or not God will do as said God will do?

Belief and taking it for granted can throw you, me and others off, can it not? As well as worrying whether or not God will do as said in and through you?

As asked by Jesus in Matthew 6, he asked will worry add any moment to your life? 


33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Who's righteousness? Any of mine, yours and others in this world? NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God's righteousness. who did Jesus say was righteous?

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

Matthew 19

16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17 Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”


Who is Jesus saying is the only One Good?


16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

“When you call me good you are calling me God,” Jesus replied, “for God alone is truly good. But to answer your question, you can get to heaven if you keep the commandments.”

And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

The Law's purpose you all is what?
To reveal to you, you can't be perfect under Law, not possible?

What, sure I can do it better than you! Okay, go on with your bad self, look good, yet you are not are you?

14 When I saw what was happening and that they weren’t being honest about what they really believed and weren’t following the truth of the Gospel, I said to Peter in front of all the others, “Though you are a Jew by birth, you have long since discarded the Jewish laws; so why, all of a sudden, are you trying to make these Gentiles obey them? 15 You and I are Jews by birth, not mere Gentile sinners, 16 and yet we Jewish Christians know very well that we cannot become right with God by obeying our Jewish laws but only by faith in Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And so we, too, have trusted Jesus Christ, that we might be accepted by God because of faith—and not because we have obeyed the Jewish laws. For no one will ever be saved by obeying them.”

17 But what if we trust Christ to save us and then find that we are wrong and that we cannot be saved without being circumcised and obeying all the other Jewish laws? Wouldn’t we need to say that faith in Christ had ruined us? God forbid that anyone should dare to think such things about our Lord. 18 Rather, we are sinners if we start rebuilding the old systems I have been destroying of trying to be saved by keeping Jewish laws, 19 for it was through reading the Scripture that I came to realize that I could never find God’s favor by trying—and failing—to obey the laws. I came to realize that acceptance with God comes by believing in Christ.[a]

20 I have been crucified with Christ: and I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the real life I now have within this body is a result of my trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I am not one of those who treats Christ’s death as meaningless. For if we could be saved by keeping Jewish laws, then there was no need for Christ to die.

Therefore are you, I and others going see this truth over the errors of in this world still here?

I want to do right, you maybe too, however, can You and IO do as been taught to do, from first birth on? 
Are you not taught, to do or else you are going to get it, if you do not do as I tell you to do?

Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? Will God? No! He is the one who has forgiven us and given us right standing with himself.
So if you are one that is trying to get God's favor, you might want to take a second look and see it is God that gives his favor, not us that get it, by what one does or not!
So, therefore turn to God Father of the risen Christ for you to be given new life in his risen Life, living it through you. Only God Father can and does reveal this truth to all God's Kid's, not Jerry's Kid's that was used years ago to get money coming in. 
If you want to give, do it, if not do not! 
Ask Father to reveal to you, how to be wise as a serpent and remain harmless as a dove art the same time?
If that be what you desire, Father knows and gives accordingly to all, God knowing the truth in you in secret from others knowing
But wait a minute, I Sin in secret, am I going to get punished from God Father? Other people Yes, Not Father, Why?
Because in Son he took on all sin, through him for us to be as forgiven

21 This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies and hated him and were separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now he has brought you back as his friends. 22 He has done this through the death on the cross of his own human body, and now as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are standing there before him with nothing left against you—nothing left that he could even chide you for; 23 the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Jesus died for you, and never shifting from trusting him to save you. This is the wonderful news that came to each of you and is now spreading all over the world. And I, Paul, have the joy of telling it to others.

Wow, woe is me you all, even Isaisah saw this in Isaiah 6:1-6
David in Psalms 103:12, 100:4, Job in Job 19:25, and many other Patriarch's as well. All those were looking forward to the day of Christ as the Son to be sacrificed for us all once for everyone, So Father would and could come to earth, not seeing the sin again in us that he is today now teaching us new in risen Son to let go and just trust.

11 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead. Men of God in days of old were famous for their faith.

By faith—by believing God—we know that the world and the stars—in fact, all things—were made at God’s command; and that they were all made from things that can’t be seen.[a]

It was by faith that Abel obeyed God and brought an offering that pleased God more than Cain’s offering did. God accepted Abel and proved it by accepting his gift; and though Abel is long dead, we can still learn lessons from him about trusting God.

Enoch trusted God too, and that is why God took him away to heaven without dying; suddenly he was gone because God took him. Before this happened God had said[b] how pleased he was with Enoch. You can never please God without faith, without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely look for him.

Noah was another who trusted God. When he heard God’s warning about the future, Noah believed him even though there was then no sign of a flood, and wasting no time, he built the ark and saved his family. Noah’s belief in God was in direct contrast to the sin and disbelief of the rest of the world—which refused to obey—and because of his faith he became one of those whom God has accepted.

Abraham trusted God, and when God told him to leave home and go far away to another land that he promised to give him, Abraham obeyed. Away he went, not even knowing where he was going. And even when he reached God’s promised land, he lived in tents like a mere visitor as did Isaac and Jacob, to whom God gave the same promise. 10 Abraham did this because he was confidently waiting for God to bring him to that strong heavenly city whose designer and builder is God.

11 Sarah, too, had faith, and because of this she was able to become a mother in spite of her old age, for she realized that God, who gave her his promise, would certainly do what he said. 12 And so a whole nation came from Abraham, who was too old to have even one child—a nation with so many millions of people that, like the stars of the sky and the sand on the ocean shores, there is no way to count them.

13 These men of faith I have mentioned died without ever receiving all that God had promised them; but they saw it all awaiting them on ahead and were glad, for they agreed that this earth was not their real home but that they were just strangers visiting down here. 14 And quite obviously when they talked like that, they were looking forward to their real home in heaven.

15 If they had wanted to, they could have gone back to the good things of this world. 16 But they didn’t want to. They were living for heaven. And now God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has made a heavenly city for them.

17 While God was testing him, Abraham still trusted in God and his promises, and so he offered up his son Isaac and was ready to slay him on the altar of sacrifice; 18 yes, to slay even Isaac, through whom God had promised to give Abraham a whole nation of descendants!

19 He believed that if Isaac died God would bring him back to life again; and that is just about what happened, for as far as Abraham was concerned, Isaac was doomed to death, but he came back again alive! 20 It was by faith that Isaac knew God would give future blessings to his two sons, Jacob and Esau.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was old and dying, blessed each of Joseph’s two sons as he stood and prayed, leaning on the top of his cane.

22 And it was by faith that Joseph, as he neared the end of his life, confidently spoke of God bringing the people of Israel out of Egypt; and he was so sure of it that he made them promise to carry his bones with them when they left!

23 Moses’ parents had faith too. When they saw that God had given them an unusual child, they trusted that God would save him from the death the king commanded, and they hid him for three months and were not afraid.

24-25 It was by faith that Moses, when he grew up, refused to be treated as the grandson of the king, but chose to share ill-treatment with God’s people instead of enjoying the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He thought that it was better to suffer for the promised Christ than to own all the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking forward to the great reward that God would give him. 27 And it was because he trusted God that he left the land of Egypt and wasn’t afraid of the king’s anger. Moses kept right on going; it seemed as though he could see God right there with him. 28 And it was because he believed God would save his people that he commanded them to kill a lamb as God had told them to and sprinkle the blood on the doorposts of their homes so that God’s terrible Angel of Death could not touch the oldest child in those homes as he did among the Egyptians.

29 The people of Israel trusted God and went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Egyptians chasing them tried it, they all were drowned.

30 It was faith that brought the walls of Jericho tumbling down after the people of Israel had walked around them seven days as God had commanded them. 31 By faith—because she believed in God and his power—Rahab the harlot did not die with all the others in her city when they refused to obey God, for she gave a friendly welcome to the spies.

32 Well, how much more do I need to say? It would take too long to recount the stories of the faith of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah and David and Samuel and all the other prophets. 33 These people all trusted God and as a result won battles, overthrew kingdoms, ruled their people well, and received what God had promised them; they were kept from harm in a den of lions 34 and in a fiery furnace. Some, through their faith, escaped death by the sword. Some were made strong again after they had been weak or sick. Others were given great power in battle; they made whole armies turn and run away. 35 And some women, through faith, received their loved ones back again from death. But others trusted God and were beaten to death, preferring to die rather than turn from God and be free—trusting that they would rise to a better life afterwards.

36 Some were laughed at and their backs cut open with whips, and others were chained in dungeons. 37-38 Some died by stoning and some by being sawed in two; others were promised freedom if they would renounce their faith, then were killed with the sword. Some went about in skins of sheep and goats, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in dens and caves. They were hungry and sick and ill-treated—too good for this world. 39 And these men of faith, though they trusted God and won his approval, none of them received all that God had promised them; 40 for God wanted them to wait and share the even better rewards that were prepared for us.

Bottom line, are you willing to be killed, to yet stand in beleif you will live, maybe not here, but with Father and Son forever!
Homwardbound, stating it is by Faith, not work, even though work does follow Faith, works do not cause Faith, Works destroys Faith (Beleif to see)
