They are taught wrong. They have been led to believe that flesh and Spirit are on equal playing fields. Wrongful teaching is “drilled” into their thinking. The writings after the death of Christ teach otherwise.
God said, “Greater is he that is in you”. Proving Christ’s Spirit is greater than the flesh. Not equal to. I speak of great Grace! I speak of the power of Salvation! I speak of an exalted Christ who reigns.
The Bible untangles people from wrong teaching and magnifies what God teaches. Human opinion stinks! The power of God condemns sin. It doesn’t condone sin like people do! The power of God is greater than the flesh. Not equal to. The divine nature is greater than the carnal. The divine nature is God given and comes from above. The carnal is inherited from the Fall of Adam. Greater is the picture of Salvation! Not equal to sin. Greater means just that! Greater!
Christ came to “restore”, “revive”, and give cleansing to the unclean. To give holiness to the unholy. To give righteousness to the unrighteous. To give power to made sons and daughters of God. It is written! Read it! God said!
Salvation is greater! Grace is greater! The power of Christ is greater! Flesh must be put to death! Crucified! Buried! Made alive! Dependent on Christ! Dependent on God’s Word! Settled! Secure!
Greater is the Divine…not equal to. Christ is the Head of you. You are the temple! Power from above. Power from the Gospel. the power of Salvation is greater! Glory! I’m getting blessed!
Don’t go cold. Stay hot with faith in Christ. He’s alive and has all power and authority in Heaven and on earth. It is written! It is the basis of faith in Christ!
