Pockets of Dead Seeds

Galatians 5 ~ TPT

As you yield freely and fully to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life. For your self-life crave the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you! And the Holy Spirit's intense cravings hinder your old self-life from dominating you.

So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self-life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit. 

The cravings of the self-life are obvious:

Sexual immorality, lustful thoughts, pornography, chasing after things instead of God, manipulating others, hatred of those who get in your way, senseless arguments, resentment when others are favored, temper tantrums, angry quarrels, only thinking of yourself, being in love with your own opinions,  being envious of the blessings of others, murder, uncontrolled addictions, wild parties, and all other similar behavior.

Haven’t I already warned you that those who use their “freedom” for these things will not inherit the kingdom realm of God!

Ephesians 2:2-3 ~ TPT

..living in the religion, customs and values of this world, obeying the dark ruler of the earthly realm, who fills the atmosphere with his authority, and works diligently in the hearts of those who are disobedient to the Truth of God.

The corruption that was in us from birth was expressed through the deeds and desires of our self-life. We lived by whatever natural cravings and thoughts our minds dictated, living as rebellious children..

Ephesians 4:17-19 ~ TPT

..unbelievers..who walk in their empty delusions.

Their corrupted logic has been clouded because their hearts are so far from God - their blinded understanding and deep-seated moral darkness keeps them from the true knowledge of God.

Because of spiritual apathy, they surrender their lives to lewdness, impurity, and sexual obsession.

Ephesians 5:18 ~ TPT

Getting drunk on wine, which is rebellion and leads to debauchery [indulgence in sex, alcohol, or drugs].

Ephesians 5:5 ~ TPT

For it has been made clear to you already that the Kingdom of God cannot be accessed by anyone who is guilty of sexual sin, or who is impure or greedy - for greed is the essence of idolatry. How could they expect to have an inheritance in Christ's kingdom while doing those things?
