    Cool Flesh

    FLESH (EMOTIONS=UNCLEAN SPIRITS)(FEELINGS=TEMPTATIONS)
    Rom 1:24-25
    24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
    25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
    James 1:14
    14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
    Luke 22:31-32
    31 And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
    32 "But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."
    Luke 22:3

    Rom 8:5-8
    5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
    6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
    8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    Rom 8:1
    1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

    20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
    21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    Gal 5:24
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
    14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
    1 Cor 15:30-32
    30 And why do we stand in jeopardy every hour?
    31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
    32 If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!"
    James 4:1-4
    1 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?
    2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
    3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
    4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
    Matt 22:16
    16 And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men.
    1 Tim 6:12-16
    12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
    13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
    14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing,
    15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
    16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
    (NKJ)
    xxx The flesh is your outer person where feelings and emotions live. You have an inner man which is your spirit and soul. So you have an inner man, and an outer person. Your spirit is the mind of your inner man, and your soul is the body of your inner man. Your soul is where your affections come from, sadness, joy, compassion. Your outer person, is where your emotions are. Emotions or passions over take your being with strong feelings that are uncontrollable. when it talks about your flesh most of the time it is talking about your emotions. Your emotions control what you do in the flesh. That is why is tells us to crucify our flesh. Let the Word of God control your flesh. And you will be born again to the Spirit.

    Gal 6:7-10
    7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
    8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
    9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
    10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
    (NKJ)

    Gal 6:14-18
    14 But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
    15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.
    16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.
    17 From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
    18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
    (NKJ)

    (NKJ)

    Rom 7:21-25
    21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.
    22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.
    23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
    24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?
    25 I thank God-- through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

    1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
    James 1:21-24
    21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
    22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
    23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;
    24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
    Luke 9:23-24
    23 Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

    Rom 6:8-10
    8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

    9 "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
    2 Tim 2:3-7
    3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

    5 And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.
    6 The hard-working farmer must be first to partake of the crops.
    7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
    Rom 6:6-7
    6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
    7 For he who has died has been freed from sin.

    8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
    9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,

    2 Cor 11:3
    3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
    Rev 22:18-19
    18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
    19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
    Gal 5:24
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    2 Cor 3:4-6
    4 And we have such trust through Christ toward God.
    5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,

    2 Cor 5:5
    5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
    Rom 12:1-2
    1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
    2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
    I Jn 2:15-17
    15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
    16 For all that is in the world-- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-- is not of the Father but is of the world.
    17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
    Titus 2:11-15
    11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
    12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
    Gal 5:16-24
    16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
    17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
    18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
    19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
    20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
    21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
    23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    Matt 5:29-30
    29 "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
    30 "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
    Matt 22:16
    16 And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men.
    Rev 2:11
    11 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death."'
    (NKJ)
    xxx Flesh is your outer person where your emotions(passions) dwell in you. Your inner man is your spirit and soul. Your spirit is the mind of your inner man, and your soul is the body of your inner man where your affections come from. Affections have no desire with them, whether it be joy, sadness, or compassion there is no desire to do anything about them. Your outer person is very strong feelings or emotions that you cant control, you have to give into them. One needs the Holy Spirit(verses) for power over their outer person. All the verses that comes to mind while one is in the meat understanding is for purging their minds of carnality. And crucifying their emotions and feelings that are contrary to any of the verses that comes to their mind.

    James 1:4
    4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
    (KJV)

    1 Tim 6:7-8
    7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
    8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
    (NKJ)

    Rom 12:1-3
    1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
    2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
    3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
    (NKJ)


    James 4:7-10
    7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
    8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
    9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
    10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
    (NKJ)

    1 Pet 5:9-10
    9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

    (NKJ)

    30 And why do we stand in jeopardy every hour?
    31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
    (NKJ)

    1 Tim 6:12-14
    12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
    13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
    14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing,
    (NKJ)

    Rom 7:18
    18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

    EMOTIONS (UNCLEAN SPIRITS)

    2 Cor 7:1
    1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
    James 4:1-4
    1 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?
    2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
    3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
    4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
    Gal 5:16-17
    16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
    17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
    Matt 18:8-9
    8 "If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire.
    9 "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
    Rom 7:13-21
    13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
    14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.
    15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.
    16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.
    17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
    18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.
    19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.
    20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
    21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.
    Rom 9:16-21
    16 So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.
    17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth."
    18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.
    19 You will say to me then, "Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His will?"
    20 But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, "Why have you made me like this?"
    21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
    2 Tim 2:24-26
    24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,
    25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,
    26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
    Eph 2:2-5
    2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
    3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
    4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
    5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
    2 Cor 5:19
    19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
    Mark 1:15
    15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
    1 Pet 4:1-2
    1 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
    2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
    Gal 5:18
    18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
    Gal 5:24
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    Gal 5:18-21
    18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
    19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
    20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
    21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    John 14:26
    26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
    2 Cor 5:5
    5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
    Matt 11:12-13
    12 "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
    13 "For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
    2 Cor 10:3-5
    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
    4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
    5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
    Gal 6:8-9
    8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
    9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
    Rom 13:13-14
    13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
    14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
    (NKJ)
    xxx Emotions or passions are unclean spirits. They enfluence us by very strong feelings. They agree with the devil. They are part of our outer person. Our inner man is our spirit and soul. Our spirit is the mind of our inner man, and our soul is the body of our inner man. Our outer person is where the unclean spirits live and the devil and our guardian angel. Our guardian angel gives us the right thoughts and the devil gives us the wrong thoughts. We need the Holy Spirit(verses) to discern who is who. Unclean spirits only torment us when we are not feeding them. when we are giving into them or feeding them they dont torment us they make us feel good because we are feeding them. And they get stronger and stronger. Until they control us.

    Col 3:5-10
    5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
    6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience,
    7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
    8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
    9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
    10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

    The flesh is the realm of the soul. The soul is comprised of four parts, which are to be laid on the altar and tied to the four horns with cords of love that cannot be broken. Those parts are: mind, will, emotions, and desires. This is what makes "us", us. The soul is feminine in nature in that it will reproduce whatever seed is planted in it, according to the law of sowing and reaping, we will reap.

    This is why we are to plant good seeds, beginning with Christ the Spirit Seed of the Father (all seeds reproduce after their own kind and His kind was the Father who is Spirit). The soul must be empowered by a spirit, the spirit uses the soul to express itself. Either we let the Lord express His nature, the Adamic spirit of man expresses his nature, or an evil spirit we have allowed to stand in the temple will express it's nature. The choice is ours, which is why it says chose ye this day whom ye will serve, because we give our bodies as a sacrifice to be used every day, to something. Whom will we serve? Let it be the Lord. Peace

    That is one of the wildest deceptions I have ever heard. The soul is the body of the inner man. The spirit is the mind of the inner man.
    FIND THE INNER MAN-CRUSIFY THE OUTER PERSON
    (SPIRIT, MIND OF INNER MAN. SOUL, BODY OF INNER MAN)

    Col 3:9-10
    9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
    10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
    1 Pet 4:19
    19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
    Matt 22:16
    16 And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men.
    Rom 7:22
    22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.
    Gal 5:24-25
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    John 6:63
    63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
    John 4:48
    48 Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe."
    Matt 12:38-39
    38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, "Teacher, we want to see a sign from You."
    39 But He answered and said to them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
    1 Tim 4:9-11
    9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.
    10 For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
    11 These things command and teach.
    1 Tim 4:13-16
    13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
    14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.
    15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
    16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
    1 Pet 4:19
    19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
    Eph 3:14-19
    14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
    16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
    17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
    18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height--
    19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
    2 Cor 4:16-18
    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
    17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
    18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
    Eph 4:21-24
    21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
    22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
    23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
    24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
    1 Pet 2:4-5
    4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,
    5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    1 Pet 2:11-12
    11 Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
    12 having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
    (NKJ)
    xxxx Your inner man consists of your spirit(the mind of your inner man) and your soul(the body of your inner man). All affections come from your soul and all decisions come from your spirit. Not all ideas but all decisions. All ideas come from the different beings in you. You get one opinion from your guardian angel. And you get one opinion from the devil. Then you choose who to agree with. But if you have the Holy Spirit He will give you a verse to show you who is who.
    All your emotions dwell in your outer person (body). All emotions are unclean spirits.


    Heb 4:12
    12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    (NKJ)


    Heb 10:38-39
    38 Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my soul has no pleasure in him."
    39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.
    (NKJ)

    Gal 5:17
    17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
    (NKJ)

    1 Pet 1:3-9
    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
    4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
    5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
    6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
    7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
    8 whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
    9 receiving the end of your faith-- the salvation of your souls.
    (NKJ)
