Ropes didn't hold Jesus to the cross either.

Jesus will not force you to do anything you don't want to do. We must grow in love to do the things we must do. Do not worry, when the time is right, love will hold you there. And we will be a living sacrifice to Him. Do not worry about it.

A regenerate man trying to get rid of the old man doesn't understand what Jesus did and is trying to do a work He has already done. Jesus became sin and the curse (2 Cor.5:21 and Gal.3) and another look at the cross through the eyes of the spirit will cause us to see exactly who God was dealing with and who He was pouring His wrath out on and exactly who was judged there. Eph.1:17-23

Looking back at the cross and seeing not just one man dying but seeing the death of all men is the beginning of the third feast, the feast of Tabernacles. Anything we do to try to get rid of something only God could get rid of is anti-Christ. An unregenerate man trying to get rid of the unregenerate nature is a house divided against itself.

Next, we reckon ourselves to be dead indeed unto sin and alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord and then we yield our members as instruments of righteousness. This is not something you do; it is something you believe. His crucifixion, death, and burial did away with who we were in Adam. His quickening, raising, and seating is who we are now in creatures. Faith in the foundation of His death, burial, and resurrection is faith that works.

We crucify the flesh by faith, believing that His crucifixion was our crucifixion (Gal.2:20). Romans 6 says, "KNOWING THIS, that the old man has been crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should no longer serve sin; for he that is dead is freed from sin." According to that passage, we died with Christ when He died (His death was our death).

crucify the flesh means you do not do what the flesh wants to do. For instance if you are young and single and your flesh wants sex, then you deny yourself because that is right in the sight of God. You always should do what the spirit wants you to do and not what the flesh wants to do.

Whether you die to yourself and live to Christ, or not, that's your choice to make and not the Lord's. But this is the one and only way that his glory can be received. Recall when violence arrested our Lord, and gave him the death sentence, none of his devoted 12 disciples chose to be associated with him, instead they denied even knowing who he was for fear of receiving the same false arrest and killing. This is the choice each soul must make for themselves.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Jesus allows us to follow him, and he perfectly outlined what it would take in his own example.

It's a matter of the will being brought into subjection, an ongoing decision, and an act of worship.
Always will he be there like a torch lighting the way, you know your his when you are compelled from deep within to follow it.
---Pharisee on 8/7/05

C-c, You answered your own question. It's our call, WE have to crucify the flesh.
