In the beginning B.C. time meaning Before Christ, circumcision was a covenant between man & God, man made a vow to God to serve him. This ceremony was cutting away the flesh (head) of man from the penis gland. The foreskin that covered the penis gland, if not properly cared for could cause unsanitary physical health results, which could cause problems w/ producing birth. (Genesis 1:28) God blessed them, & God said unto them, be fruitful, & multiply, & replenish the earth, & subdue it: & have dominion over the fish of the sea, & over the fowl of the air, & over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Therefor in B.C. time Before Christ, God was saying before the Holy Ghost, I need for you to make a covenant w/ me by cutting away you flesh so that the God head maybe able to produce life effectively.
(Luke 1:35) The angel answered “The Holy Spirit will come on you, & the power of the most high will overshadow you. So the Holy one to be born will be called the son of God.
(John 3:16) For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(John 10:10) I am come that they might have life, & that they might have it more abundantly.
The difference between B.C. Before Christ, cutting away of the flesh & today 21st century cutting away the flesh in B.C. time man saying “okay! God I agree to cut away, let go of myself to serve you, serve the leadership that represent God in B.C. time that I may produce life & walk accordingly.” Not knowing at the time coming into a covenant w/ God they would endure severe pain from cutting away their flesh. This pain they endued showed their desire to serve God & it was an act of faith, this act of faith basically said “hey! I’m willing to do unto you as I would do unto myself in a form of loving my neighbor as I love myself.”
This applies to the 21st century of fighting against the flesh, we all know how hard it is sometimes to let go of that sugar daddy/momma or to let go of an addiction. For the ways of mans sinful nature of the flesh we believe is quite pleasing but, these flesh sin are found in (Galatian 5:19:21) being sexually unfaithful, not being pure, taking part in sexual sins, (20) worshiping gods, going witchcraft, hating, making trouble, being jealous, being angry w/ each other, causing division among people, being selfish, (21) Feeling envy, being drunk, having wild & wasteful parties, & doing other things like these.
God is saying to the 21st century believer will you cut away your flesh to allow the triune God head the father, the son, the holy ghost, to flow through your life, to flow through your circumstance that you may have life & live life more abundantly. He saying yes! there will be painful days, he said in (1Corinthians 10:13) I am faithful; I will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which ye are able to bear. Make a covenant w/ me to walk in the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) Which produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23)gentleness, self-control. (Galatians 5:24-26) Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their sinful self. They have given up their old selfish feeling & the evil things they wanted to do. (25) We get our new life from the spirit so we should follow the spirit. (26) We must not be proud or make trouble with each other or be jealous of each other. (Ephesian 6:12) Our fight is not against the people on earth but against the rulers & authorities & the powers of this worlds darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world.
