The desires of the "flesh" are not overcome through absentia, will-power or "sheer" determination. These desires are not overcome in our misguided quest for the "Satisfaction" of our Soul; they are only annihilated as though they "never existed", in OUR QUEST FOR "COMPLETENESS" IN OUR SPIRIT. Isaiah 55:1, "Come, everyone who thirsts, and have water; you with no money, come buy and eat"! GOD does not give us "portions of the HOLY SPIRIT" nor are we "ALMOST SAVED". If we think we have "SOME" of the HOLY SPIRIT; WE HAVE NONE. If we think we are "PARTIALLY SAVED"; WE ARE LOST!
