The Lust Of The Flesh

Rom 7:5
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 
 
Sinful desires do not just come once in a while, they are compulsive and obsessive in nature.  They harass, torment, reinforce themselves, driving a person mad until they are indulged and relieved.  Lust means a strong and intensive desire, wanting and driving to be gratified, yet is unsatisfiable in nature.  Lust can be sexual in nature but not limited to just that.
 
1Jo 2:16
the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life 
 
Greed are financial lustful devils.  They control the business arena of the world.  Kingdoms rise and fall by them; families and marriages have been destroyed, workaholics drop dead because of them.  The grip to keep making money, the lust to climb the social ladder; the need to be noticed; the daily swing from hard work to stress relief; the necessity to find escapes from work pressure in the pleasures of entertainment, alcohol, drugs, chemical and sex.  Others are demons of Pride, Possessiveness and Power: the lust for attention, to be the most important, prominent person, the controlling desire to be in control, in power, to be the commander, dictator and tyrant.   There is also the lust to be hedonistic, lazy, withdrawn and aloof!   
 
Lust is a voice that talks, an ambition that drives, an evil force that rules.  Evil forces move in the different parts of one’s soul: the emotions, thoughts, memory and imagination; they come as suggestions, ideas, attractions, dreams and wants; they come day and night, at work and home, deceiving and being deceived.  The Bible calls them “the flaming darts of the wicked”, the law of sin in the flesh.  
 
Rom 7:23
..the law of sin which is in my members
But who is activating this law of sin in the flesh?  The spirit of the world, the god of this world, Satan himself.
 
But Christians are not helpless nor victimized!  We have been given the discernment,  the authority, the power to rule over the controller itself!
 
Luk 10:18-19
I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 
 
WE are not of this world but the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!
