Today’s Insanity: “Works of the Flesh Are Manifest”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*Editor’s Note* – I continually hear people voice their astonishment of what they are seeing in this country and around the world. It is often described as unbelievable, out of control, disgusting, scary and I regularly call it what it is – insanity. Why is this happening? Paul clearly tells us in the below passage from Galatians 5: 13-26. There is no other explanation.

Galations 5

13 For brethren, ye have been called unto liberty: only use not your liberty as an occasion unto the flesh, but by love serve one another.

14 For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, which is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

15 If ye bite and devour one another, take heed lest ye be consumed one of another.

16 Then I say, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary one to another, so that ye cannot do the same things that ye would.

18 And if ye be led by the Spirit, ye are not under the Law.

19 Moreover the works of the flesh are manifest, which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, wantonness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, debate, emulations, wrath, contentions, seditions, heresies,

21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, gluttony, and such like, whereof I tell you before, as I also have told you before, that they which do such things, shall not inherit the kingdom of God. [emboldening added]

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperancy: against such there is no law.

24 For they that are Christ’s, have crucified the flesh with the affections and the lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vainglory, provoking one another, envying one another.
