Let me make this submission to you.
What is sowing in the Flesh?
Now note the chapter and verse Paul used to teach this.
Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
It’s Galatians 6. Now in order for us to understand what he said we cannot stop there. We have to read further.
Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.
As such, sowing in the Flesh is actually circumcision. It’s simple really. It’s means doing something to a part of your body to symbolise your return to the Old Covenant. Keeping the Law.
Now look at this.
Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh.
Now listen to what Paul said.
Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.
And before that.
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
So what was Paul saying.
He is saying that the Flesh is actually reliance on the Old Covenant and the Law of Moses.
The Law ended in AD70. The Law no longer exists. As such it is impossible to sow in the flesh today.
That is why I told you in an earlier post, the whole humanity is already crucified with Christ.
I am not the only one who said it.
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.
The new creation is the humanity that was born from Jesus after AD70. It’s all of us.
