The Flesh Manuscripts I: An Adulterous Generation


When I think of the flesh, I think of my body and the things that make me whole. But the flesh also represents carnality. To be carnal is to satisfy the appetites and passions of the body, forgetting about the spirit and the soul. As I was thinking about this, God refreshed an idea that I had a long time ago. He gave me a brand new way to reflect on my flesh: The Flesh Manuscripts.

The flesh manuscripts are born today. It will consist of descriptions of each of the works of the flesh, and will describe how to come out of them. I know who God is. A God that has no limitations and impossibilities. Why do you think you cannot COME OUT? Of course you can!!! Your chains were broken more than 2000 years ago. The curse was deleted, and your name was changed.

There is nothing that you cannot do. Don't let anyone lie to you. You will overcome those things that make us hunger for the things that are not of God. These series will analyze each fleshly desire listed as from the book of Galatians, chapter 5. I will devote myself to this until I analyze every single one of them. There are seventeen works of the flesh, so I will be writing 17 manuscripts. The list of fleshly desires are not in any way limited to these 17 manuscripts because verse 27 ends with "and things like these." I pray this will help me in my walk, and also for others out there who are struggling. Manuscript 1 begins with Adultery...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
They say it is unavoidable
One look at her body and you forget your wife
One look at his body and you forget your husband
An illicit relationship
A sexual advance one too many
.
They say it is enjoyable
Having what they said you could not have
Being free to be wild and free
Flying to heights where men could not reach
.
They say it is revenge
For the marriage bed became a curse
For beauty had turned into ugliness
And desire into anger...
.
Adultery can be likened to a person who has God, but runs after other gods to worship them. The flesh. There's a constant battle between the flesh and the spirit. Everyone has the POWER to decide which one will win. If you choose the flesh, it can definitely rule over your spirit. But if you choose the spirit, your body will be moved by an invincible hand. The essence of marriage is that two become one flesh, with the signature of God. This was why Eve was designed specifically for Adam.
.
I know we all knew that. So for those about to go down this path, how do you jump back on the bandwagon? What came to my mind right now was that you need to go down and your knees and seek God's face. It doesn't matter whether you think u've gone into it so deep that you cannot come out anymore. Coming out is the only way to life. Don't sign yourself on a contract with the devil. It only ends in death.
.
Never underestimate what talking to God can do. From nowhere you will feel strength reviving your bones. God says that it is in your weakness that His strength is made perfect. After talking to God, His Spirit will begin speaking to you, and if you listen real hard, I can assure you that you will HEAR Him. He's the one that can tell you what to do. I cannot tell you what to do because I am not with you. I cannot tell you exactly what to do because every situation is UNIQUE. But God is with you, even till the very end. He never left you, not even once. And He will tell you what to do...
.
Start by admitting it. You've either considered it or committed it. If you don't admit it, you'll never be free (*No, I don't mean admitting it on this blog, but to God*). Follow up by confessing it...whisper it to God. He listens to everything. He will forgive you and heal your marriage...if you're not married, you may be an adulterous generation lusting after other gods (or things), that's adultery too...but I know God has the power to heal you...and I strongly believe He will...the end of this manuscript is the beginning of your healing...

A great start to the series, i'm looking forward to the rest. It's a tough struggle and we're used to hearing of the irresistability of the desires of the flesh, so we don't berate ourselves enough when we slip.

Thanks for this! I hope all is well.

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

A very important topic many dare not to touch, a very important issue we must all deal with in our everday life. A very important area that we need to focus our attention to, to make sure we are not dsipleasing God in our Life style. A very important woman who the lord is using to show the way.

Can't wait for part2 of the series.

You don't want to curse your wedding night by committing adultery or fornication. You want God to bless the marriage. Very good post. Keep it up Jaycee!
