Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.(2 Peter 1:4) KJV
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,(Hebrews 12:1) KJV
The mass of Earth is the total of all pG. We’re bound by it and it’s the reason why all bodies fall to Earth. This is Mosaic gravity (M) the law, the power of the grave, a downward pull towards the center of the Earth.
This is where we get acceleration due to gravity, small g. This gravitational attraction is acting on us to pull us down into the center. We’re going to call this Mosaic gravitational attraction, M: the Law. M has power over us because of sin, our carnal desire and fleshly lust.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
On the second day God created A, a field of Agape gravity which emanates from the singularity at the center of the Earth. The attractive force imparted to us by the field of Agape gravity (A) is phileo gravitational attraction (pG). The resultant pG caused matter to accumulate into a mass, the spherical Earth.
Phileo gravitational attraction (pG) is our tendency to accumulate into a mass. It’s carnal as opposed to spiritual attraction. The mass of the Earth is the total of all pG. We’re bound by it and it’s the reason why all bodies fall to Earth. This is where we get acceleration due to gravity, small g. The sum total of accumulated pG causes M. M is increasing because of a continual influx of pG. This is why hell is expanding and we’re experiencing global warming.
Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.(Luke 8:14) NKJV
Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,(1 Peter 2:11) NKJV
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.(2 Peter 1:3-4) KJV
Here’s a couple of examples from scripture which show how firmly these concepts have been linked together in the Bible.
Lust: ἐπιθυμίᾳ – epithumia
- desire, passionate longing, lust
- desire, eagerness for, inordinate desire, lust.
Pleasures: ἡδονῶν – hédoné
- pleasure, a pleasure, especially sensuous pleasure; a strong desire, passion.
- sensual pleasure; what is enjoyable to the natural (physical) senses.
- has a strong negative connotation, generally referring to pleasure that is made an end in itself. That is, the satiation of bodily desires (lusts) at the expense of other things.
- the root of the English terms, “hedonism,” “hedonistic.”
Fleshly lust wars against the soul? No kidding because, if we don’t overcome them by believing in Jesus Christ, then our souls will fall back into the core when our body dies.
