Self-Control

    Home Back

Galatians 5-19-21: NKJV: Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outburst of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

 

We live in a world where few people have the fruit of the Holy Spirit which includes self-control. We live in a sinful world that has the fruit of the spirit of the devil. People in the world have little or no self-control to please God.  People with this evil spirit of sin will not inherit the kingdom of God. . Idolatry, uncleanness, lewdness, envy which is greed and heresies break all ten of the commandments of God. These broken commandments are the filth of the devils world; including pornography which is unrighteousness. * Ezekiel 24:13: In your filthiness is lewdness, because I have cleansed you, and you were not cleansed, you will not be cleansed of your filthiness anymore, till I have caused MY fury to rest upon you. * Romans 1:24-25:Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature (creation) rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

 Adultery and fornication break the seventh commandment of God. Idolatry and sorcery is witchcraft that breaks the first two commandments of God. Hatred, contentions meaning discord, jealousy and fits of rage break the greatest two commandments of God. Deuteronomy 6 5:.You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. * Leviticus 19:18: You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. (Read Matthew 22:37-40).

 

We live in a drug infested world that continues in chaos. The entire world is drunk and not sober minded with self-control. * 1 Peter 5:8-9: Be sober; be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. * From the time of Adam the entire world has become more and more chaotic. This chaos is because mankind has transgressed the covenant of God.

 

Hosea 6:7-9: But like men (descendants of Adam) they transgressed the covenant; there they dealt treacherously with ME. Gilead (northern kingdom) is a city of evil doers and defiled with blood. As bands of robbers lie in wait for a man, so the company of priests murder on the way to Shechem (first capital, northern kingdom); surely they commit lewdness. * The defection of the ten tribes of Israel represents the defection of the entire world in this age. The knowledge of God represents jewels of mercy, piety and humbleness. Lewdness, murder and chaos portray the broken covenant (commandment) of Adam. All mankind received this broken gift in the Garden of Eden.

 

Hosea 5:4-5: They do not direct their deeds toward turning to their God, for the spirit of harlotry is in their midst, and they do not know the Lord. The pride of Israel testifies to his face; therefore Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity; Judah also stumbles with them. *God was a husband to Israel from the time the Israelites departed from Egypt (Jeremiah 31-32). Israel broke the covenant commandments of God. The Son of Man, the Messiah attempted to restore God’s family during more than 3 years of ministry. Only a small flock Jesus Christ trained received the Holy Spirit after the resurrection of Messiah (John 20:22).  The marriage to the Church of God expanded at Pentecost a few weeks later. The marriage to the Church of God expanded beyond Jerusalem to the Gentiles in Corinth by 55 AD.

 

2 Corinthians 11:2: For I am jealous for you with godly jealously. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ (as purity, NU). * Jews, proselytes, Cretans, Arabs and all Gentiles have the opportunity to become a chaste virgin to Christ. * Acts 2:38: Then Peter said to them, repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the Holy Spirit. * Repentance and immersion in water by a pastoral representative of God is required to be granted the gift of the Holy Spirit of God. After baptism the lay on of hands to impart this power is necessary. Then spiritual escape from this evil world of the devil continues to grow like the seed of the mighty oak tree. Purity chaste virgins will awaken after death to become firstfruits in the family and kingdom of God.

 

1 Corinthians 15:52-53: In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet (Revelation 11:15). For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. * 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

 

Matthew 24:30-31: Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And HE will send HIS angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together HIS elect (firstfruits) from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. * Revelation 3:5: He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before MY Father and before HIS angels. * You can overcome by receiving the power of the Holy Spirit. This power will impart self-control to overcome. The fruits of the Holy Spirit will be law in Matthew 6:10: Your kingdom come, YOUR will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Be blessed until we meet again.
