The Charity of Satan called Concupiscence

Concupiscence: False Justification

Disguising Your Frailty

There are those that claim their passion (anger) is a result of culture, gender, or a genetic expression and should be accepted or justified as a tool and method for examining and discerning.

When False Piety Feels Right

There are those that trust the design of their own signature to teach them truth. The logic of the moral-code is used to validate the aspirations and the principle. On this sliding scale there is the loss of consistency by the shadows of passion.

Double Mindedness And The Bending Of The Light  

But the apostle James said that this spirit is not to be trusted for faith because it is directed by an earthly spirit and moulded in a perception of self-confidence. This is a link of death that will contaminate everything that is joined to it. Those under the spell will say the sweet is bitter. For envy looks like sugar when you feel empowered to impose the law of the principle and free from the guilt of evil doing.

But the conscience will say that the law of the moral-code is not sweet but bitter as salt. Gravel of the mind is not the stone of Christ.

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. (James 3:13).

This shows that the powers of God will follow a sanctified design or pattern of expression and only the wise will handle this power correctly.

Is Concupiscence A Hidden Virtue?

When the voice of the flesh sounds logical and the word of God sounds questionable it is Satan’s wiles smiting the soul sculpturing your perception to view the face of death as the beauty of the Lord.
There are two types of wisdom. The wisdom of the flesh directs the heart into the aspirations of life. On the other hand the wisdom of God leads the soul into faith.

Because the lust of man can take on forms of religious piety absent of the power of God, concupiscence offers the mind a false justification.

But the conscience being defiled needs those other voices of confirmation to feel free of guilt. This is sensual to the senses giving a temporary peace and devilish in substance, for the wages of sin is death.

The Naked Soul

As the angel warned the church of Laodicea through the living stewardship of the apostle John, that they were wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked; so today the church remains crippled in the spiritual things because of doctrines that are taught under the spell of concupiscence. (Colossians 3:5). Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God.(1 Thessalonians 4:5)

Spiritual Fornication And Being Miserable

Where spiritual fornication is present there is also concupiscence which has to do with the moving of the passions to draw avarice upon the victim for justification.

These seeking to injure by harsh words observe the persons silence as a weakness gives certain pleasure. This anger is then justified by the sinner as a holy passion for truth whereas it is only a form of revenge.

 Esau vented his anger of disapproval of Jacob felt justified to exhibit this evil spirit. Using his passion in place of faith because of the absence of virtue seeks of find fault out of revenge, fear, or personal joy. This is to exploit the agitation to further the cause for justification. Esau in this state of thinking resolved his miserable feelings by removing the barrier of his joy, which is his brother Jacob.

That Which Is Common To Man

The temptation of the flesh is to justify sin and condemn righteousness as in the case of Esau and Jacob.  Unconverted believers will vent their anger through text to justify their position against truth. Sinners seek and use an occasion to smite the righteous. He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

Rest in His Resolve: True Faith
Christians get confused when their efforts for good and the kingdom of God is not appreciated or forthcoming. They feel that God has laid a heavy burden upon them to resolve the world’s problems. They want the whole world to see Christ in them and to honour their gospel of good will toward man. But where grace is absent the force of the imagination casts its deadly shadow. Instead of servitude to the Master they wish the position of the master to oversee the outcome of their religious vices. When Jesus said, thy will be done, shows His longsuffering and submission to the timing of God’s will.   more...

Wandering Truth And Moving Foundations:Autonomy of the Ungodly Believers
When Jesus said, "I have kept them in Thy NAME"; He was showing the tether (bond) of charity where the work of His cross will effect the faith of those that believe. In this pattern only is there remission of sin. The Lord said to His apostles after His resurrection in John 20:23. "Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained" that the life of the saints will be built upon this pattern which the stewardship will perform.   more...
