1Co 5:5?
« on: September 25, 2011, 04:55:32 AM »
Are there any thoughts on what this verse? What does it mean to deliver such a one unto satan/adversary?
The destruction of the flesh?

1Co 5:5  To deliver such a one as this, unto Satan, for the destruction of the flesh,—that, the spirit, may be saved in the day of the Lord.

I ask this for I believe it speaks of a soul such as myself. :Mcry: :HeartThrob:

Mic 7:8  Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.

It seems to me its a "they've gotta hit rock bottom" kind of situation there.  That was for me.  I had to become so depraved of mind, that I finally saw how evil sin was, and what its effects are on others.

I don't see why not.  I believe I've been delivered over many times.  Hopefully I won't need to again.

And for me as well.  There seemed to be a time where most evils didn't seem off limits to me.  It forced me to a bottom.  And from that bottom I became teachable.  We say the same thing to addicts....."maybe you just need to go out and drink/drug some more".  Some individuals need to be let go....they need to go to the depths of depravity before they get it...and become teachable.  People have to become painfully aware that being the god of their own life doesn't work.  They have to learn that if they are their god their life becomes unmanageable.  I don't believe this is so just for the addict.  I believe it's so for every person who rejects God.

A wasted thought on my part. Thank you Red and Shawn for your thoughts. I shall remove my self indulgence.

some of us have to learn the 'hard' way.      I was told a long time ago....'you can learn the easier way

  by listening to my counsel and heeding it..or the hard way..by disregarding it..but learn you will.

   sometimes rebellious sons and daughters aren't interested, and stop up their ears,from

  the wise counsel of a loving parent.  they are bent on doing things their way.[see prodigal]

  satan is the rebellious spirit...and when a child will not heed Father..he more or less takes

  the hand of this rebellious spirit and follows it[handed over to satan]...this  destroys stubborn

 fleshly ways..when the child comes into need and want[longed to be filled with swines food from hunger]

    the real hunger and thirst is for the spirit of love and care from the Father...acknowledging that

  God had our best interests at heart....and left to our own devices..we manage to get in a mess........

   'sow what you reap' effect.   It is at this time that the spirit of rebellion is let go of....and the child

   starts  longing for reconciliation with the Father...hoping in Him...

   loss expierenced as 'want' in the flesh....in order that 'the spirit/love/reconciliation/relationship'

 between Father and son  may be saved.

   the sons realizes the Father loves him...the Father knows the 'foolishness of youth' that took his son

 away...is no longer anissue.

   God has the power to bring back from death....some/most men return home as prodigals at the

  death of their flesh. He rejoices that He has them back from the dead
