When we live by His Word, we will not satisfy the lust of the flesh. I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16 When you lack the Governor--Holy Spirit--in your life, you lack the power to overcome things that would hinder you. Without the Holy Spirit, we are powerless. 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. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 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. Galatians 17-21 The word inherit means living in or experiencing the Kingdom here on earth.
Keep in mind that the culture of Heaven and the culture of this world are very different, polar opposites of each other. You cannot experience the Kingdom of Heaven if you are living according to a foreign culture. Ambassador Paul also mentioned those who have the Spirit in their lives and how that looks. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:22-26
Since the Governor’s role is to lead His citizens to live according to the King’s standards not the culture of darkness. He rebukes and corrects us. He uses the internal warning system of our conscience and reminds us of the wisdom of His Word and the teachings of King Jesus. These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 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. John 14:25-26 He reminds you what is written in the Lord God’s constitution of His Kingdom. The more scripture that is in you, the more often He will bring it to your mind in difficult situations. Once again, remember what King Jesus. 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 6:63 Many of you left some kind of religious organization but you must remember that you are under a new master teacher. He is the Lord Jesus the Christ (remember that Christ means “anointed one”. It is not Jesus’ last name!). You are under a new culture. The Governor teaches us to relate to the Creator as our Father. We truly are foreigners in this world. We are under His guidance and protection always!
Remember, our greatest asset is our faith in His Word in His Kingdom
