S P I R I T versus Flesh:

JESUS expressed, saying: “God is a [SPIRIT]: and they that worship him must worship him in [SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]” (John 4:24).

The Apostle Paul further expressed said: “So then [THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD]” (Romans 8:8).

“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 5:19–21).

“But the [FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH]” (Galatians 5:22).

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For [IF YE LIVE AFTER THE FLESH, YE SHALL DIE]: but if ye through [THE SPIRIT DO MORTIFY THE DEEDS OF THE BODY, YE SHALL LIVE]” (Romans 8:12-13).

“There is therefore now [NO CONDEMNATION TO THEM WHICH ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, WHO WALK] not after the flesh, but [AFTER THE SPIRIT]” (Romans 8:1).

“[NOW IF ANY MAN HAVE NOT THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, HE IS NONE OF HIS]. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. [BUT IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELL IN YOU, HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST FROM THE DEAD SHALL ALSO QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU]” (Romans 8:9-11).

Our Lord JESUS further says: “It is the [SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH]; the flesh profiteth nothing: [THE WORDS] that I speak unto you, [THEY ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE]” (John 6:63).

“[BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED]: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For [HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION]; but [HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING]” (Galatians 6:7-8).
