THAT which WAR against the SOUL

 

1 Peter 2:11

King James Version

11 Dearly beloved, 

I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, 

abstain from fleshly lusts, 

which war against the soul;


The world is steeped in sin.

But we're mostly in denial.

Of the fact, that we sin at all.

Or if we're aware, we continue to defy the laws of GOD.

But SPIRIT, and SCRIPTURE, correct us all.

Romans 8:1-14

King James Version

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them 

which are in Christ Jesus, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus 

hath made me free

 from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, 

in that it was weak through the flesh, 

God sending his own Son 

in the likeness of sinful flesh, 

and for sin, 

condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law 

might be fulfilled in us, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh 

do mind the things of the flesh; 

but they that are after the Spirit 

the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; 

but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: 

for it is not subject to the law of God, 

neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh 

cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, 

but in the Spirit, 

if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, 

he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, 

the body is dead because of sin; 

but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him 

that raised up Jesus from the dead 

dwell in you, 

he that raised up Christ from the dead 

shall also quicken your mortal bodies 

by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, 

brethren, 

we are debtors, 

not to the flesh, 

to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, 

ye shall die: 

but if ye through the Spirit 

do mortify the deeds of the body, 

ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.


1 Corinthians 6:9-10

King James Version

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God

Be not deceived: 

neither fornicators, 

nor idolaters, 

nor adulterers, 

nor effeminate, 

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, 

nor covetous, 

nor drunkards, 

nor revilers, 

nor extortioners, 

shall inherit the kingdom of God.


1 Corinthians 6:13

King James Version

13 Meats for the belly, 

and the belly for meats: 

but God shall destroy both it and them

Now the body is not for fornication, 

but for the Lord; 

and the Lord for the body.


1 Corinthians 6:15

King James Version

15 Know ye not 

that your bodies 

are the members of Christ

shall I then take the members of Christ, 

and make them the members of an harlot?

God forbid.


1 Corinthians 6:18

King James Version

18 Flee fornication. 

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; 

but he that committeth fornication 

sinneth against his own body.


1 Corinthians 6:19-20

King James Version

19 What

know ye not that your body 

is the temple of the Holy Ghost 

which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.


Galatians 5:16-21

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil 

the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, 

ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest

which are these

Adultery, 

fornication, 

uncleanness, 

lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, 

witchcraft, 

hatred, 

variance, 

emulations, 

wrath, 

strife, 

seditions, 

heresies,

21 Envyings, 

murders, 

drunkenness, 

revellings, 

and such like: 

of the which I tell you before, 

as I have also told you in time past, 

that they which do such things 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


1 John 2:16

King James Version

16 For all that is in the world, 

the lust of the flesh, 

and the lust of the eyes, 

and the pride of life, 

is not of the Father, 

but is of the world.
