But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, IF THE SET APART SPIRIT OF OUR CREATOR REALLY DWELLS WITHIN YOU DIRECTS AND CONTROLS YOU.
But if anyone does not possess the Set Apart Spirit of Messiah, he is none of His he does not belong to Messiah, is not truly a child of Our Creator.
But if Messiah lives in you, then although your natural body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE BECAUSE OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT HE IMPUTES TO YOU.
That explains my behavior and my situation with my health. I no longer struggle to be or to look ‘good’. I am genuine.
No pretensions or claiming all those ‘positive’ ways going on in the world at large. All those so-called peace and unconditional love pretensions.
Pretensions? Sure, all that goes out the window with the least attempt from anyone to point a better way than peace and unconditional love they proclaim.
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Yahushua from the dead dwells in you, then He Who raised up Messiah Yahushua from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh we are not obligated to our carnal nature, to live a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates of the flesh.
For if you live according to the dictates of the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the Set Apart Spirit you are habitually putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the evil deeds prompted by the body, you shall really and genuinely live forever.
Amen! Your accomplishment within my being! Your Set Apart Spirit habitually putting to death, making extinct, deadening the evil deeds prompted by my body. No Kidding, my friends, no need for me to set up my time and my to do list.
The Set Apart Spirit within me is habitually putting to death my evil doings.
Phew! What a relief! And what big smile in Ahmad’s face! No, no apologies for my ill behavior. Only a “thank you”. “I really appreciate it!” “I love you!”
No more crying. No more bickering. OH? The truth? That flesh! It pops with the least provocation, but! So does that power of love and wisdom from on high. It never fails. It always avails! Hahaha! HalleluYah!
