By faith, we know that the Son of man; our Lord Jesus Christ, IS going to appear to Israel and the world at our God and Father’s appointed time; and we saints, the Lord’s Body is going to appear with Him in glory (Colossians 3:4).
Therefore; because His appearing with us is going to happen, we saints should deprive our members of power; put to death our members; our human body along with its evil, wicked, mean and sinful human nature, which will fight the Holy Spirit for control of us for as long as we are on the earth in human bodies: (Colossians 3:5)
Because of the totally depraved state of our evil, wicked, mean and sinful human nature, it is impossible for it to accept defeat and give up its fight with the Holy Spirit for control of us. It will continue this fight until we leave our earthly house, which is our body. It will continue to be more deceitful than anything else that we know of; desperately and totally wicked; and impossible for us to know and keep up with, apart from total dependence on the Holy Spirit inside us (Jeremiah 17:9).
Fornication, which is any sexual activity outside of the God of the Bible’s definition of marriage (So that there is absolutely no confusion, the God of the Bible made “male and female” to be husband and wife, which was a mystery hidden in God until He revealed that what He had in mind when He put man and woman together as husband and wife, was His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ and His bride, the Church [Ephesians 5:32]) ,
Uncleanness, which is lust and impure motives, depraved and vile passion, evil desire for that which is forbidden, and covetousness or greedy desire to have more, all of which is the exact same thing as idolatry or worshiping false gods.
Our focus, as true children of God, is not to be on these things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are only temporary; but the things which we cannot see now, except with our eyes of faith, will never ever end. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Instead, according to our God and Father’s promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, where there will be absolutely nothing but righteousness. (2 Peter 3:13)
Why is it, that doing things the way our God and Father tells us to, just does not appeal to most professing saints? I dare say that it is because most professing saints are NOT true saints OR they are allowing the human body along with its evil, wicked mean and sinful human nature to survive, thrive and control us, instead of depriving it of its power, by giving ourselves wholly to the control of the Holy Spirit of God.
You’ll know that you’re headed in the right direction when the things that seem so great and wonderful to the children of this world, begin to be less and less appealing, attractive and important to you; and our Lord Jesus Himself becomes more and more all that you need in any situation.
