Adam didn’t fall.

Math.17: 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light….


Now this transfiguration was the display of the garment of the priestly office. It was the Body of glory, the kind of Body Adam had before the fall. We can rightly say, Adam fell from a paradise state into the realm of carnality. He allowed the wrong voice to communicate to him through the wife and so lost the glory. When I used the word, Adam allowed, it is deliberate because there was no way Adam could have been made Adam fall. The word is clear..


John.1: 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

The word comprehend which is katalambano, means ‘to take eagerly, i.e. seize, possess, etc. ,apprehend, attain, come upon, comprehend, find, obtain, perceive, (over-)take.


So the Amplify will say.. John 1:5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. AMP.


Meaning as long as Adam was living in the light, there was no way he could have fallen to the voice of the serpent. Just like the serpent tried it on Jesus “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.( John 14:30).


What was the devil going to do to Jesus, he was to question the authority of his sonship and what he knows about himself as a son of God.

Look at the way he worked on Eve.. “ …And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”Gen.3:1).


Can you not see that it was a question? Hath God said? It’s like saying ‘are you sure? Do you believe what God said about you?. So to Jesus is like asking him, are you truly sure you are the son of God even though you have heard him say so to you? What evidence do you have to prove that you are the son of God? etc etc

These are the very questions that confront us every day. Do you think this Christianity of a thing is real? Is there truly any benefit in worshipping God? Is Jesus truly God in the flesh? What do you stand to gain being a Christian? If you think you are a son of God why are you not performing miracles etc etc. All these accusations in our minds are aimed at nothing but our sonship in God. That’s how the devil talks to us.


But how do we overcome? by simply replying back with the word by saying .I am a son of God because the word says so, I don’t need any evidence to prove that not even a miracle.


Now this is where the light you have in Christ takes effect, for the darkness, which is ignorance produced by the accuser in our hearts cannot comprehend the light.


I mentioned that Adam was not deceived and so didn’t fall . How do I know that, because the word says so.

“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1Tim.2: 14)

So how did Adam fall? He gave himself willingly to it because Eve the wife has fallen.


Now there is a major ministry to this fall of Adam here, also that we need to understand. After all Pual’s admonition concerning the husband and the wife,(marriage) he ended up by saying it is a ‘mystery’ “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church”.Eph.5: 32.


What then is this mystery of the marriage of the church and Christ; it’s that if Adam has not willingly given himself to the fall by following the woman that was deceived, Christ would not have died for the church, the redeemed sinful humanity.Becasue Adam died in flowing the sin of Eve, Christ have to die that through death man, the wife of Christ, the church would be redeemed.


Therefore, the light body that Jesus demonstrated at the time of the transfiguration was a revelation of immortality

This is why we are told in Lev.8: 35 at the consecration of Aaron’s sons into priesthood that

“Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded”.


Now Peter got that revelation too hence he requested of Jesus.. “…Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias”.(Math.17:4).

You know what he was saying? Master, we can stay on here and enjoy immortality as represented by the feast of tabernacles, just as Aaron’s son were supposed to stay in the tabernacle and never die. No more going down to the earthly realm from the spirit dimension of glorified sons, to manifest immortal light Bodies.


In Luke’s account (Luke 9:33) it was added to the request of Peter “not knowing what he said”. So why did Peter not know what he said? Because he was trying to structure that which is future from the time they were. Jesus has not even gone to the cross yet and he wants to manifest immortality. This was the very reason that God has to drive out man from the Garden less he partake of the tree of life and live forever, meaning if man has eaten of the tree of life after he has eaten that of the knowledge of God and Evil, he would have immortalized death, so it was for man’s good that he was driven from the Garden.


Adam fall was a willful submission to death so Christ can submit to the death of the cross for the redemption of mankind, the church. For darkness cannot comprehend the light that we carry even now. “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light”. Math 6:22.

So don’t doubt your faith or calling. Stay with what God says about you. Know firstly, you are a born from above son of God., you maybe a nepios, (an infant) now, but you are a son coming to maturity ultimately ..

The covenant of sonship.


Again we reiterate the fact that Adam never fell from Grace but from sonship realm into a carnal man, and so the word says “…Adam, which WAS the son of God” (Luke 3:38) But Christ IS the son of God (Math.16:16) .


To the Galatians Church Paul said “1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?..This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? .Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?” (Gal.3:1-3).


This is falling from Grace, when you move from faith of the simplicity that is in Christ into legalism in your worship, you have falling from Grace.

When God gave Abraham the law to circumcised every male child “that is eight days old” (Gen17:12, Luke 2:21), that was the covenant of sonship. And it was ever understood as a consecration of the person to God.


Now the Jews have what is called an adoption ceremony, this is not picking someone who is not part of your family to join you. That is the western sense of adoption but for the Jews, adoption is the placement of a mature son into position of authority before the elders in a city that henceforth, the young man can as from this hour be able to stand to transact business on my behalf. He can sign my signature, he is matured enough to manage my estate so you people should honour him if he does so when am not around.


So when we read of “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” .( Math 3:17) at the time of Jesus Baptism in River Jordan by John the Baptist, that was an adoption ceremony. And in scripture, this adoption of Jesus took place three times, you began to wonder why?


Firstly, in Math. 3, account, he was adopted as a Prophet, everybody saw and believed John to be a prophet, and now the father was turning their attention from John to Jesus as the ordained prophet that has just risen for the people of Israel by God Himself.

In Math . 17:5. We have his adoption as a priest, and in Heb.1:5-8.we have his adoption as a king. Therefore we have Jesus functioned as a Prophet, Priest and king.

Now we are going to be more concerned with his priestly adoption as it relates to our walk in and with God as the father intends to bring many sons to glory in Christ. “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings”. . Heb 2:10 (KJV)


Jesus transfiguration.

We read in Math. 17: 1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

In other words, he was transfigured before them on the eight day. In fact Luke’s account says. “..eight days”. “And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.”( Luke 9:28-29)


So why the difference?. The answer is found in the Book of Leviticus, in relation to the consecration into priesthood of the sons of Aaron.

Lev.8: 33 And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

34 As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to make atonement for you.

35 Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.


So we can see that, the sons to be consecrated were not to leave the tabernacle until seven days, which is their consecration period and then on the eight day the glory will appear. (Lev.9:1-23)..So the eight day is the glorification period.

Therefore, Luke’s account gives us the glorification period while Mathew’s account speaks of the consecration period, it’s just one and the same ceremony taking place.

So could it be we are in the consecration period in God’s agenda to be gloried in the revealing of our true sonship as priest to rule and reign on the Earth (Rev.5:10)?


Now why do you think Moses and Elijah have to appear to him at this moment ..

Luke 9: 30 “And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem”.

They appeared to strengthen him to be able to go to the cross for if Jesus should fail to go to the cross, then that makes the testimonies of the law and the prophet to fail, they will be made liars.

Here then is the trial of our sonship, the ability to endure, remain focused and to finish up with that which the father has given to us as true sons in the making.

The tail of the dragon is false ministries (Rev.12:4)


So when we read that .. “ the dragon ….and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Rev. 12:3-4). What does the dragon-tail symbolize?


We know that the stars of heaven stands for the sons of God..God promised Abraham that his sons shall be as the stars of Heaven,, The eleven stars that bowed down to Joseph were his eleven brothers., who were actually the stars , the sons of Jacob that Lucifer, the very king of Babylon wanted to rule over (Isa.14:13) even as we do know that “the sides of the North” to which he wanted to ascent to is Moutn Zion, the city of the living God, the church.(Ps 48:1-2) Jesus Himself is the bright morning star. No room to explain of Isa 14 here.(But you can request for our message on JUST WHO IS LUCIFER.?


So what is the tail of the dragon that caused the stars to fall? It’s right there in the scriptures for us.

“The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed”.(Isa 9:15-16.)


The word teacheth, here is very important .. yarah, yaw-raw’ a primitive root; to flow as water (i.e. to rain), to lay or throw (especially an arrow, i.e. to shoot); to point out (as if by aiming the finger), shoot,


Interesting, what we are seeing here is the unceasing flow of the false prophetic ministries aim at the sons of God in the making, to get them off course. As through these ministries/teachings, other thoughts will begin to arise in their heart as touching who they are and what they can now do even though it’s not yet time as allotted by the father to do such. They are promising things that could make them assume power in no time and do a lot of miracles as well outside of the mandate of the father


Again, we see Jesus the firstborn son being tempted in this regard..Math.4: 8 “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me”


The fact beloved is, there is no mountain in the whole world that you can climb and see the entire world talk less of being in Palestine. The highest that I know of, is Mount Everest and it’s not in Palestine. So which mountain is this that the devil took him to? It was the mountain of his own imagination.


Yes, that is the only mountain you can climb and assume and see anything. That tells you that the real devil is working from within the hearts of men. To be on the mountain top is to be in total dominion, here the thought was you can now rule the world because the father just said to you, you are his only begotten son. But what needs to be done first like going to the cross has not been done. So the overcoming ability here was Jesus mastering his thoughts to wait and come to the obedience of the cross and the rule over the universal was and is rightly his. This is what Adam and Eve could not endure, they became gods in the flesh. We cannot assume full sonship in a presumption manner .


The tail of the dragon therefore is nothing more than false ministries that teach things that prevents and turns us away from attaining to the place of full sonship in God. When men begin to teach you and proclaim that sonship is not attainable or that you have already attained to all that the father has for his sons, the dragon tail is at work.


While it is true that as many as believe, the father gave power to become the sons of God (John1:12-13) The fullness of Christ sonship was made manifest only after resurrection..


“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom.1:3-4) Therefore “…but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” Rom.8:23.


Friends, the trouble we are facing today is not about Grace not being available, but how to be focused in God to attain to the place of full sonship with dominion on the face of the Earth. The birthing of the cooperate man-child that can shepherd the nations with the rod of iron is the problem.

And this is what the dragon doesn’t want so we are immersed in one form of religious deception or the other through the tail of the dragon. But the fathers will shall prevailed; He shall yet have a son. For in the “.. evening time it shall be light”. Zech.14:7.

The fallen stars were sons of God.(Rev 12:4)

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and, behold a great red dragon…and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Rev. 12:3-4).


First of all let as understand that this dragon have nothing to do with some monsters running around in the world, but rather this is a spiritual reality amongst men. It is a negative, corrupted, and carnally perverted spiritual dimension in operation.

Have you ever wondered that the same said dragon is the same creature that was in Eden.?. see it


“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”. Rev.12: 9.


Did you noticed that the major weapon and strength of the dragon is nothing but deception ? and that was what it used against Eve in the garden to cause the fall of Eve and Adam? Gen.3:1. From a mere serpent he became a dragon as men multiplied with his ministry on the earth, yes, that is how it grew from a tiny serpent to a dragon when men began to multiply on the face of the earth.


The greatest war against our sonship is deception. You found that the appearance of the dragon into the scene is directly connected to the birth of the man-child. That mature son of God that is expected to rule the nations with a rod of iron, which actually speaks of shepherding the nations, for that is what the rod stands for.


So we state again that as soon as Jesus was proclaimed to be the son of God , the tempter, the dragon that old serpent came.


And so in verse 5 of Math 4. “Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple”


Yes the devil wanted Jesus to be religiously relevant outside of the will of the father. That is where the sons of God have fallen into today. We proclaim ourselves to be who we are not. He took him to the temple, yes the highest point in religious attainment if you will in the Holy City, the very church of the living God. He wanted him to proclaim himself who he was as the head of the church before time, but even in a wrong location.


Essentially you find that the three major areas wherein he was tempted was in the areas of Economy, Religion and power-politics, if you will.

Stop calling Jesus a Sinner – Part 5

Jesus Christ Crucifixion on Good Friday Silhouette

Gal.3: 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Here it is said, Christ hath redeemed us- ( exhgorasen).meaning he had bought us with a price; i.e his blood, or life, by being made a curse for us.

Made a curse; treated as accursed, in suffering for our sake the accursed death of the cross. Deut. 21:23; 2Co 5:21.

In other words, he was being made as atonement for our sins. This is so because that which was offered as atonement for sin was considered as bearing the punishment due to sin.

And the person who suffered for transgression was considered as bearing the curse in his body; and such a victim in was taken down from the cross the same day he was executed and buried out of sight to prevent the pollution of the land. The reason being that he that was hanged, was considered accursed of God, which was the case for every of such victim of such crime (Deut.21:22,23). This was responsible for Jesus ‘body being removed same day from the cross.

John 1: 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. 2 Cor.5: 21.


Jesus Christ Crucifixion on Good Friday SilhouetteLooking at the above scriptures, we can see that Jesus as a sin offering was offered by God himself. John referred to him as the Lamb of God. Meaning just like everyone was to offer his sin offering for the purpose of sacrifice, even so God by himself has offered for mankind a Lamb suitable for a sin offering to take the place of whatever man will attempt to have offered or will want to offer. This is the only acceptable sin offering to God. So just like he provided a sin offering for Cain, and even a ram for Abraham to be offered in place of Isaac, even so has he provided this sinless Lamb for the sins of humanity. This is what we are seeing here. It is the Lamb of God, God’s own personal Lamb, that is Jesus.


Further we are told. He was offered to take away the sin of the world. It’s a singular sin. So we are talking about the very act resulting from the fall of Adam in the Garden. Therefore Paul in Romans said.


“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…..

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

Stop calling Jesus a Sinner – Part 3

Math. 27: 3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, what is that to us? see thou to that”.


The above scripture is the confession and testimony of Judas Iscariot after he has betrayed Jesus. Now do you know the strength of the statement he just made when he said, I have betrayed THE INNOCENT BLOOD? He didn’t say ‘an’ innocent blood but THE ..

It is from the word = athoos, ath’-o-os in the Greek, Meaning “not guilty:–innocent” and it is taken from the root word (. a ) a, al’-fah of Hebrew origin; the first letter of the alphabet; figuratively, the first: –Alpha. And that speaks of the very first blood Adam had before the fall. The original blood that is without corruption, sin.. It’s completely free of sin and any such thing that is associated with sin.


The innocent Blood is the ‘apha’ blood, the very first and original blood. Yes, Jesus had no sin in his blood system while he walked the earth. He was completely innocent. Therefore he was not a sinner not even on the cross.


But God “made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. 2 Cor.5: 21.

Stop calling Jesus a Sinner Part 2

Again like I stated in part 1 of this discuss, I have heard people in various none Christian groups say, one of the major reasons Jesus has to die the way he did was because he was paying for the sins of his previous life. In other words they were buttressing their belief of reincarnation. But we know that Jesus only incarnated but never reincarnated.


So when you begin to teach that the sins of the world was laid on him even on the cross, you are also saying he died the death of a sinner because of sin and that also means he was a sinner. And that is very dangerous a doctrine concerning our Lord Jesus Christ.


Silhouette of Jesus Christ crucifixion on cross on Good Friday Easter

Here is an illustration. Barabbas was a murderer and seditionist, who were to be crucified according to the law of the Jews/Romans, but Jesus took his place and he was released. Does that mean Jesus actually committed the very crime of being a murderer? The answer says no! But he took the punishment due the crime of Barabbas which was death. Barabbas then was a type of humanity so that we could be free from the penalty of death.


Here is what the word says about this fact in Heb. 2:9

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man”. (KJV)

Stop Calling Jesus a Sinner – Part 1

The Church has indirectly agreed with the world by teaching that Jesus was a sinner. There are sayings that Jesus died for his own sins, therefore he cannot save you. That when Jesus said ‘take up your cross and follow me’ he meant to say I am dying for my sins, so you also get ready to die for your own sins, that is what is meant by work out your own salvation, which they also interpret to mean the interplay of the law of karma.

While the Church may not say this openly, they teach same thing when they say that our sins were laid on him, making him a sinner and so he was so ugly that we could not behold him and even God could not look upon his son because of the sins of the world that was laid on him, and that is why he shouted my God, my God why have thou forsaken me


But essentially the Bible never for once mentioned that our sins were laid on him. This is what it says..

“..: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly me…..
We have spoken of the condition that prevailed in the days of Noah which has extended to our Days, They were “ eating and drinking”..meaning they were full of self-gratification and indulgences .
But what is responsible for this, you may wonder? Listen “We know that, we are children of God and that ALL THE REST
worketh in the children of disobedience” (Eph. 2:2). Therefore “… all that is in the world (system of man) The LUST
OF THE FLESH (cravings for sexual gratification etc), and THE LUST OF THE EYES (greedy longings of the mind)
and THE PRIDE OF LIFE (confidence and assurance in one’s own resources or in the ability of earthly things)these
do not come from the Father, but are from the world (itself). 1Jn. 2:16 AMP.
Therefore the natural man without God’s mind is “… spiritually dead … drifting along on the stream of this world’s ideas of living and obeying its unseen ruler who is still operating in those who do not respond to the truth of God” Eph. 2:1, Philips.


In addition to this, the world is still directly under the influence of the law, without realizing that it is not obeying the law that can save us from ourselves, but rather our faith in the promised seed, Christ.
“Well then, why were the laws given? They were added after the promise was given to show men how guilty they are of breaking God’s law.
But this system of law was to last only until the coming of Christ, the child to whom God’s promise was made…” Gal. 3:17-19 TLB.
But men in their political and religious zeal have not still seen this, and the need to embrace the grace in the Son for total liberty in the world.
Now, all of these attitudes and character, outside of God, is what is called “the image of the earthy” 1 Cor. 15:47a, 48a, and 49a. Jon. 3:31.
This earthly nature is summed up in Rom. 8:5-8.
“ For those who are according to the flesh and controlled by its unholy desires, set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh… Now the mind of the flesh (which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit is death-death that
comprises all the miseries (sickness, poverty etc) arising from sin, both here and thereafter… (That is)…because the mind of the flesh-with its carnal thoughts and purposes-is hostile to God; for it does not submit itself to God’s law… so those who are living the life of the flesh – catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature -cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him “AMP.
So the heavens (controlling factors) and the earth (people in their earthly nature) which are now, by the same world are kept in store, reserved unto FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT and PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN” 2 Pet.3: 7
Once again, it is evident from the above fact that, the present human ways of life are evil because his ways and thoughts are not godly. But that since “God in Christ” is the saviour of ALL MANKIND, (2 Cor.5: 19, 1Tim. 2:4, Lk. 3:6, Ps. 65:2, 1Jn. 2:2, 4:14). He has ordained in His Programme to get the lost man back to Himself by having the factors of man’s enemy in their mind and spirit dealt with as by fire. Col 1:21, Eph. 2:12, 4:18, Mal. 3:1-3

“Therefore, since we are now justified-(believers) acquitted, made righteous and brought into right relationship with God – by Christ’s blood, we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God (that will come upon the ungodly)-we shall be SAVED (DAILY DELIVERED FROM SIN’S DOMINION) through His (resurrection)” Rom. 5:910 Amp. For “…the Bread that I shall give for the LIFE OF THE WORD is my flesh” Jon. 6:51.

Therefore the sin’s Dominion to which we are being delivered from daily is the “life of the world,” that constitute THE EARTH (earthly nature-the old man). Hence we read “MORTIFY (KILL) YOUR MEMBERS WHICH ARE UPON THE EARTH, fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection” etc. Col. 3:5 Compare Heb. 6:7-8.

Now, you can agree with me that these evils can only be found in the nature of man and not the physical earth, where your mango and guava trees are grown. Again, notice that, these natures are called “MEMBERS” meaning they have power and alive, so where you cannot destroy them through your faith in Christ, then eventually God’s fire will come in to do it. Then there will be no more earth -mankind of sin. Hence we read “ And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the EARTH and the HEAVEN fled away; and there was found no place for them” Rev. 20:11.

So what is it that is required of us in this matter? The word of God says,
‘ “so kill (deaden, deprive of power the evil desire lurking in your members – those ANIMAL IMPULSES and all that is EARTHLY IN YOU that is employed in sin; sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, (don’t worship the good things of life.) For that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).. It is on account of these (very sins) that the (holy) anger of God is ever coming upon (those who are obstinately opposed to the divine will) the sons of disobedience; among whom you also once walked, when you were living in and addicted to (such practices). But now put away and rid yourselves (completely) of all these things; ANGER, RAGE, BAD FEELINGS TOWARDS OTHERS, CURSES and SLANDER and FOULMOUTHED ABUSE AND SHAMEFUL UTTERANCES from YOUR LIPS: Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerated) self with its evil practices.” Col 3:5-9 (TLB, Amp)

But when you follow your own wrong inclinations your lives will produce these evil results; impure thoughts,
eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, spiritism (that is, encouraging the activity of demons), hatred and fighting,
jealousy and anger, constant effort to get the best for yourself, complaints and criticisms, the feeling that everyone
else is wrong except those in your own little group-and there will be wrong doctrine, envy, murder drunkenness,
wild parties, and all that sort of things. Let me tell you again as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the kingdom of God” Gal. 5:19-21 Tlb.
