Flesh vs. Spirit
In order to win in this life on earth, you must conquer your flesh.
Psalms 151 is how the spirit man wins over the flesh of man.
First by practicing not sinning
Set a goal to be reached in 151 days.
Yes, 151 days of training and teaching the mind and body to obey
your spiritual commands.
Controlling the flesh is not a hard task to accomplish.
In order to receive many things that God has for you,
You must show him that the real you, which is spirit, is in control
of your flesh.
You must not be moved, driven, care for, enticed, or distracted by
this world’s attractions.
These are traps set for you so that you can be out of control.
In II Peter 2:3-10
According to his divine power has given unto us all things
Unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that
Us to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these
You might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the
corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and
to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you
shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord
But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and
has forgotten that he was purged from his old sin.
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling
and election sure:
For if you do these things, YOU SHALL NEVER FALL:
Based on this above you are now ready for the world.
You must show Him that you can pick up your cross daily and
Many answers to your prayers are waiting on you to control your
By setting this goal to reach in 151 days of putting your body under
subjections will lead only to you being in control.
Doing these 151 days of learning to conquer your flesh, you will
set up two plans.
One will be to plan not to fell.
The other is to plan to win.
You can use both plans to help you win and be successful in
controlling your flesh.
You will want to also take notes of your feelings and emotions
on how your mind and flesh are responding to you resisting them
doing what they use do.
Well, let’s look at the flesh and the reason why it does the things
You know the flesh is just a way of thinking.
The wrong way of thinking is to follow and do whatever it
The right way is to live on purpose as if you are from Heaven.
If you didn’t know that it’s where you came from.
Your spirit knows this truth and it will teach the flesh the right way
to conduct its self while here on earth.
This world system was setup to distract your flesh, so you can follow its way of
doing things and not Heaven way of doing things.
It was developed and designed so that it will make you desire and
be distracted from your purpose.
It has one thing on its mind and that is to stir you away from doing
what God sent you here to do.
This world dictates to us what we should wear, what we should
listen to, how to love, when to love, how many to love and who to love.
Since your flesh is connected to this world, you will continue to
follow the ways of this world.
But, for born again people of God, who are called his children,
He sent his Son to show you the way not to act like this world, but
act like children of Heaven.
Say no to the way the world runs things and say yes to the way
God runs things.
Heaven knows best.
What’s best for you is not dictated by Corporations.
You know, everyone looking the same
Dressing the same
Listening to their music
Talking and repeating the same things
Looking like the images made inside their books, movies and
Everyone looking the same and doing the same things as the next
Self awareness is the key to success.
Doing the 151 days you will become very aware of whom you
You are made by God for a purpose and plan.
Each person made unique.
No one like the other
Each has a dream different than the other.
During this 151 days,
You will find out what the world has to offer you,
And what God has to offer you.
Your goal will be to teach your flesh a new way of thinking and
looking at this world.
The view of the world around you will become very clear.
Training the mind not to respond to any of this world’s distractions,
And giving it a new mind set.
A way of thinking that lines up directly with the way God thinks.
Understanding the flesh vs. the spirit
First you are a spirit that lives in a body.
Now the body and the spirit are two separate beings.
You have the human being and the spiritual being.
They both have their rolls to play.
One can’t operate on earth without the other.
Now the flesh knows nothing about heaven, but the spirit does.
The flesh loves the earth and all the things made on it.
The spirit is neutral.
And it loves everything in Heaven.
These two worlds way of doing things clashes with one another
The flesh in this case has a strong tie to the earth and all things on
It is influenced by what it’s attracted too.
Everything on earth was made for the flesh.
The flesh is the weaker vessel and the spirit is stronger, because it
is not influence by earthly things.
Your spirits job is to change the fleshes mind about everything
that it’s attracted to on earth, and help it look at this world from a
disconnected mind set.
This is a hard task to do.
But, it can be done, and will get easier.
Changing the mind of the flesh,
By enforcing the Word of God, and
By being a doer of the Word after getting knowledge.
By speaking the Word over your life, and
By not just saying what the Word says to keep the body under
But, also saying what the Word says about what the future holds.
Once you have gained knowledge and put it to practice, your flesh
will respond to it.
Now knowing your opposition, they don’t want you to stop feeding
your flesh with the desires of this world.
They will do everything they can to keep you under the control of
You must show them and your body who is in control.
This world has no hold on you; accept that which you give it.
Take it away and you will be set free from all attractions.
Yes, this will take serious commitment to God’s way of doing
Success in anything comes from doing,
Not from haven’t done.
When trying different and new things, keep this scripture in the
for-front of whatever you try.
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
And at the end of these 151 days, you can do as Paul did and say;
II Timothy 4:7
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have
kept the faith.
My suggestion is that you start making your list of scriptures.
You will need it on a daily basis as you continue this 151 days
journey to be free from your fleshes power over you.
This will help in building your resistance.
But, of course right now you will need to be stronger at resisting
your mind and flesh.
I know the pressure is starting to build up and you are finding it
hard to resist.
You want to give in, but you want.
As times get tougher you must remember to;
As in Star Wars the movie when Luke was going to destroy the
Stay on Target
Stay on Target
But he needed something more and he heard a voice say;
Use the force
Use the force Luke.
We must remember that we have a Holy Spirit that is our helper.
As we try to resist the devil and this world’s pull on us, He is there
to remind us of who we are and what we can do.
As with your spirit, the Spirit will never stir you wrong.
Greater is He that is in me then he that is in this world.
You can always count on His wise counsel.
Another thing that will happen in these 151 days is you will
discover things about your gifts and talents.
If you are not already operating in them or not yet discovered
what they are,
You will in these 151 days.
If you have done all and have not yet found your gift, maybe you
have not opened your eyes to who you are and what you have
You have prayed to God to help reveal those to you,
Then pray for wise counsel to be sent to you.
Out of two or three witnesses it shall be confirmed what gifts are.
Wise counsel shall be needed on several areas as you abstain and
become prosperous in many areas.
Wise counsel will be needed in these areas;
Staying on your course
Developing and using your gifts and talents.
Receiving wealth and riches
Where to give?
Friends and mates
Where to serve?
When to leave and go where you will receive more instructions
What to say to those who need help.
And becoming a counselor yourself to those who have felled in
the area where you have succeeded.
In these 151 days, you will learn to count on the power within.
The power given to you by the Father and the Son.
This power will grow daily as you continue to resist the flesh
And more tests will come to see how strong you are
With what you have learned.
Can you stay the course and not be moved?
You will be tested over and over in all points just has Jesus when
he was here.
You will need confidence and patience.
If you find yourself alone is harder to accomplish this task, then
partner up or seek family members for assistance in staying your
Keep your picture playing in your mind of the victory at the end of
these 151 days.
The word says in Hebrew 10:35-37
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great
recompense of reward.
For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of
God, you might receive the promise.
For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will
And another one
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience,
But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and
entire, wanting nothing.
And yet another one
That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith
and patience inherit the promises
You will learn to walk more in line with your faith.
Hope will keep you focused on your goal and plans.
Love will whole you, lift you up, and carry you through your journey.
As you get even closer to you reaching your goal, there will be
nothing in this world and the one under it that will stop you.
Other distractions not all are taken as distractions.
Other love ones
If you married or just having a family to take care of, there might
While many are not, they all can be managed and directed in the
Not letting anything and anyone get out of control due to them
being influenced by this world’s distractions.
You are still in control.
Your house is God’s house given to you to manage.
You have been given all power and instructions to use in order to
manage your house well.
Christ is in us and us in him.
Pray first and remind your family of whom you serve.
The love of God is perfected through us keeping the Word.
Show them you’re light always and at all times.
Darkness turns away from the light.
This you can practice everywhere you go.
The practicing of Gods’ word does make you perfect.
If you are dating or looking to get married,
This is no offence against either.
If you are not ready then do not.
If you are a man and you have not yet gotten in a position where
God wants you to be, then do not be distracted by the flesh need to
be with someone.
Do not take a wife too soon.
Because in doing so you will be required to spend time with her
proving your love for her.
This will slow you down.
Those who can wait,
To those who cannot wait, then get married.
Even better if she is a part or can help to elevate your progress,
then married her today while you can.
My hope in the above is not to turn someone away from someone,
but to make your election sure.
In your purpose and plans you must be sure.
Even better if your whole family is a part of your purpose and
plans to serve the Father in all well doings.
They can be a part of your reaching the goal of 151 days.
Dreams can be distractions too in reaching your goal of 151 days.
If you are someone that read a lot into dreams,
You take stock into dreams and
You change your directions according to your dreams,
Then you must understand how they can be a distraction.
What can we take from our dreams to help direct our life for
staying on track and giving us good directions to take?
You learn how to separate visions from bad dreams.
Bad in the since that they are not scary, but just put in your minds
eye to distract you from the course you are on.
Bring bad dreams to the light.
You must weigh them against the Word of God and the word given
you for the direction God gave to you for your life.
Visions on the other hand are the opposite in nature.
They are Gods given insight for our future.
You will be given Déjà Vo.
Why, because a previous vision has already been put in the place
where you are before you arrived at this time and place.
What am I to take from this?
It says you are still on track.
Use what you have been given and serve where you are.
You are almost at the end of the 151 days.
Writing down past victories over part of the journey to help
motivate you and propel you forward.
So far you are doing great.
Sing praises to God
Rejoice always even from the beginning.
You have changed much and
About his Son
About the Holy Spirit
And mostly about yourself
You did not think you could make it this far, but you did.
It is now over yet.
Hold on to that vision and keep playing it over and over again.
It should be like second nature.
You should now at this point see the vision as if it was the present.
Even if you stumbled a few times, you should know that God knew
it and forgives you.
Your walk in Christ has gotten stronger.
You have left many things at the cross.
Your family and love ones see you as a changed person.
They are the better for haven been there as you tried and
A winner’s walk is never easy.
Then Jesus would not have gone to the cross to make us
He was the only one in Heaven to choose this hard task.
He said “I’ll go”
And for the Father to send his only begotten Son was not easy.
But what we are asked to do to win over this world doesn’t
compare to what he went through on the cross.
There is no price.
151 days of controlling one’s mind and flesh.
It seems hard but is made easy through Christ power in you.
I John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because
greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
I remind you of two other scriptures.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us
free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage
I John 2:15
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any
man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
And now you are at the end of these 151 days of your
flesh vs. spirit.
My hope is that you have come to the knowledge of who you
Your purpose and plans have been established.
Let me also remind you to take notes, they are most important
when reminding yourself to think a certain way, talk a certain walk,
motivation, dedication, perseverance, certain trails and tests along
the way, and how did you get the victory.
You have conquered your flesh
There is no turning back for you.
Your hand is now God’s hand.
Your eyes are now God’s eyes.
Your words are now God’s words.
Your prayers are prayers of a righteous man that God’s hears and
the angles go and make happen.
Everyone can see the real you which after tests and trails
Going through the fire and being molding by the potter,
You are made in the image of Jesus.
Congratulations I say to you.
Yes, that’s what I was thinking when I put your picture on my wall
of fame and not the wall of shame.
The world I give to you.
A true child and son of the most high, God
Yes my brother before this began and my brother even more now that
you know who you really are.
Heaven applauds you.
The angels await you to ask anything that you should ask in my
They will hear and bring to you what you ask.
This is a new psalm for
This world is yours and the wisdom of Heaven
Are open to you
Hold out your hands and receive your blessings.
