For My name’s sake I defer My anger, and for the sake of My praise I restrain it for you, that I may not cut you off.
Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried and chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it [I refrain and do not utterly destroy you]; for why should I permit My name to be polluted and profaned [which it would be if the Master completely destroyed His chosen people]? And I will not give My glory to another [by permitting the worshipers of idols to triumph over you]. End of quote.

No surprise. Even so? I owe nothing to my human nature or my flesh. You have set me free to be on the mountain top with Thee.

And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus 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 [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever. End of quote.
