For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. BUT IF YE BITE and devour one another, TAKE HEED that YE BE not CONSUMED ONE OF ANOTHER. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 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. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these ; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 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. Galatians 5:14-17,19-21. Let's be very clear here and differentiate between a heart attitude, and a flesh attitude. If you are a Follower of Christ, as the Lord looks AT your heart, He will show you things He wants to deal with and remove FROM your heart. Your Heart Attitude is FOR the Lord and He's just cleaning out the fleshly garbage. But as a sinner, unsaved, a lost person, your full-time Heart Attitude will be one of Flesh First. So far, there is no room for Christ so your flesh rules. No problem, EVERYONE starts off as a sinner on their way to Hell. And the Holy Spirit WILL Encourage you to follow Christ as He points out, to you, your REAL fleshly attitude of self fully ruling your heart. Until you see your Sinful Nature against God Almighty, you can't see your Need for Christ and His Desire to Forgive you and Purify your Heart of flesh, self, and the old man nature. You just have to Trust Him, that what He shows you is Real and that you are on your way to Hell. If you'll allow, Christ will change your heart from Me First, to Christ First. Christ already Knows ALL your future, now it's your Choice to, Be Blessed.
