Paul was right. The Flesh can't do it....

    I Went To See The Son of God Movie... When All of a Sudden...As I Was Watching Jesus Die...

    It dawned on me that in all of Paul's writings about:

    The Spirit,
    The Flesh,
    Lust of the flesh,
    The 1st Adam,
    The 2nd Adam,
    and walking in the Spirit...

    That these things are all tied to the death of Jesus.

    It's as if God decided to give up on "The flesh" since the flesh was never able to abide by His commands, nor please Him, and move to the Spirit, as a new creation.

    Kind of like changing trains, or modes of transportation…

    That is why Jesus said "You must be born again". Born of Spirit. A new creation.

    Jesus died; literally killed the vehicle of sin, and death, by dying in the flesh.

    So when we are born again, we really are NEW creatures.

    Old things have passed away. This is why that seed remains sin free. Because sin worked through the flesh…

    Adam was in the flesh, and sinned in the flesh.

    Sin can't work in the Spirit…It's not the right vehicle (seed) for sin…

    So I was so happy when I left that something of the bible was much clearer to me.
