Luke 11, 2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 9:24, proverbs 16:32, 25:25
The lack of self control is a disaster, like a city without walls and is disaster beyond description. Because when a soul decays and nears it’s end; Self control is a key factor in Christianity.
In today’s society it is Satan’s way of mental disaster and leads to total annihilation. This culture and its self indulgence makes us vulnerable to godless enemies of all types. Lack of self control opens the door to our spirit and to the man of lawlessness the Bible speaks of and friend of Satan. Lack of self control is Satan’s way of leaving us vulnerable to all forms of the Antichrist.
Evil doers give up their lives to a strong forceful life, but they are two different forces. Evil doers give up to satanic forces. While Christians give in to the holy spirit.
Self control for christians is impossible without the Holy spirit. Having the Holy spirit begins with a decision, and that decision is to submit to the will of God. The father, son, and holy spirit. When you do this, you will bubble in joy. Even in the tough times. It will pacify you with peace and fill you with kindness and patience, enrich you with faithfullness bringing about self control. Or you can stay in your old ways and you may keep your salvation, but at risk losing your joy.
Self control is being empowered by God and submission to the Father, and only the Holy Spirit can assure you self control.
Self control does not mean self improvement.
Biblical self control occurs when you submit to the Father, yes. It is a new divine nature when we become born again. Your spirit can not be put on auto pilot. You have to be in cooperation with God to control your baggage of old. See, our old self wants to run wild and go crazy and our new nature as children if God want us to glorify Him and pay respects to the one which we sanctify from our old life. It is either the reborn way your old way. You can not balance the two; it is like trying to walk with two left feet. It is impossible. In this life trying to balance the past and present: the two do not cooperate in fact the apostle Paul said he forgot his past because he is doing God’s work 🙏, and quickly turning you in a downward spiral. You read in Luke 11 Jesus driving demons from people, even that is not enough because you MUST ask the Holy spirit to move into your heart. 1 Corinthians 9:24 speaks you must discipline your heart to fill the void the demon left when cast out.
Luke 11:26 speaks of what will happen if we don’t fill that void. Satan and his 7 lackeys or sins will move in and they are fast movers. Becoming stronger than before. Remember this:
The fruit of our spirit will defeat the words and sins of the flesh every absolute single time and that is truth
If we are dedicated to God and spreading 🙏 the good news of the gospels and the living spirit encased in the Bible because as a reminder I must say Jesus Christ is not a way it is the way. Anyways, by doing these works we are in unity and brothers and sisters in a spiritual business 💙🙌❤️ but you have to have what? SELF CONTROL. Until I gave this some thought I never knew how vital this is along with patience(2 Corinthians 6:6). By applying this: this is the will of God and this is our works from him for us here on Earth and when we get to heaven we shall gain the crown of righteousness.
