The Flesh Is Weak, Profitless, And Not To Be Trusted
Nevertheless, God is God of the flesh also, and He uses it for His own purposes.

         FLESH IS WEAK
              "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
               the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
               (Matthew 26:41 KJV) 
               
              "Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The
               spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak." (Mark
               14:38 KJV)
                          Note: The Greek word PROTHUMOS is translated
                          as "willing" in Matthew 26:41 and as "ready"
                          in Mark 14:38. But it's the same one Greek
                          word in both places. It means ready and willing.
      
         FLESH IS PROFITLESS
              "It is the spirit that quickeneth (gives life); the
               flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you,
               they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63 KJV)
         FLESH IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED
              "With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our
               God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people
               rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of
               Judah." (2 Chronicles 32:8 KJV)
              "Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in
               man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth
               from the LORD." (Jeremiah 17:5 KJV)
                               Please note the concept of "arm of the
                               flesh," as in the statements, "We should
                               not rely on the arm of the flesh," and
                               "He trusted too much on the arm of the
                               flesh." This is a useful concept: "arm of
                               the flesh."
         NEVERTHELESS, GOD IS GOD OF THE FLESH ALSO; AND HE USES
         IT FOR HIS OWN PURPOSES
              "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any
               thing too hard for me?" (Jeremiah 32:27 KJV)
              "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out
               my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters
               shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your
               young men shall see visions:" (Joel 2:28 KJV)
              "All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again
               unto dust." (Job 34:15 KJV)
