Inner Conflict And Its Remedy
With Given O. Blakely

Our relationship to God through Jesus Christ is a spiritual one. It is not realized in the flesh, and does not consist of merely external procedures. In fulfillment of Jeremiah's prophecy, God has written His law upon the hearts of the regenerate (Jer. 31:33; Heb. 8:10). Those that have been reconciled to God serve the law of God with their mind (Rom. 7:25). Their thoughts are centered upon things "pertaining to life and godliness," and their affection is set "on things above" (2 Pet. 1:3; Col. 3:2). In confirmation of their acceptance, the Holy Spirit has been sent into their hearts (Gal. 4:6). He brings intimacy between the Father and His children, denoted by the expression "Abba, Father." These things take place within the individual.

Inner Conflict - Lesson 4 - The Mind, The Arena of Conflict


Those in Christ are a microcosm of world conflict--they are miniature worlds, in which a war between good and evil exist. From the beginning, this conflict can be seen. When the Holy Spirit brooded upon the face of a chaotic deep, the conflict between Divine order and chaos was seen. The conflict of light and darkness is seen in the separation of them. Satan and the innocent pair in Eden's Garden. Cain and Able. Enoch and the world. Noah and the world. On and o it goes! Good and evil are locked in conflict, and cannot be reconciled. You will find it on every page in the Bible. You find it in John the Baptist and Herod, Jesus and the Pharisees, the Apostles and the Sanhedrin, Paul and the Jews. No believer should think it strange that good and evil are at war within their persons!
