What Is the Flesh in the Bible?

The Bible mentions the flesh throughout the Old and New Testaments. But although Christians are clear about what sin is, many haven’t heard much about their flesh. Unfortunately, Satan’s obscuring of the truth about the flesh over the years has allowed him to damage many of God’s people. What is the flesh, and why is it so bad? Is it still bad now that we’re saved? Does our flesh get better the...

The Blood of the Lamb

“Our salvation lies in looking away to the Lord Jesus and in seeing that the Blood of the Lamb has met the whole situation created by our sins and has answered it. That is the sure foundation on which we stand. Never should we try to answer Satan with our good conduct but always with the Blood. Yes, we are sinful, but, praise God! The Blood cleanses us from every sin.”

The Renewing of Our Mind

Romans 12:2—“And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.” Note 4 on renewing of the mind says: “After presenting our body, we need to have our mind renewed.

How Knowing My Human Spirit Affected My Christian Life

We hope you enjoy this BfA staff member’s testimony about discovering her human spirit and how it affected her.

When we feel right inwardly, when we feel the life inside of us moving, when we are strong within and sense the anointing, we know that we have life.”

The Son of Man

Matthew 26:64—“Jesus said to him, You have said rightly. Nevertheless I say to you, From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.” Note 1 on Son of Man says: “The high priest asked the Lord if He was the Son of God, but He answered with ‘the Son of Man.’ In His temptation He had answered the devil in the same way (4:4 and note 2)...

Our Spiritual Remedy: The Spirit as an All-Inclusive Dose

You’ve managed to pick up the nasty cold that’s going around. Sniffling, headachy, stuffed up, and feverish, you feel awful. Seeking relief, you drag yourself to the store to pick up one of those multi-symptom relief medications. After taking the first dose, you start to feel better. Nobody likes to be sick physically. But have you ever felt spiritually “sick”? You want to express Christ to...
