ConCup a what? kakos epithumia?
So, here I am minding my own business, having a cup of coffee and thinking about the signs of the times, when suddenly a man sits down, breaks my reverie and says "Can you explain concup a something or other?".
I said, "Do you mean concupiscence, as in the lust of or evil concupiscence?" "Yes" he said.
What he really wanted to know was not just what concupiscence means, but how it applies to today's church. So, while concupiscence is used only three times in the New Testament.... in Romans 7 and 1 Thessalonians 4, and we did cover those, the verses most appropriate to our discussion relating concupiscence in today's church is found in Colossians.
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: Colossians 3:4&5 ACP/KJV
Evil Concupiscence is, in the original language, kakos epithumia,
Kakos is: depraved, or (objectively) injurious:--bad, evil, harm, ill, noisome, wicked.
Epithumia, is a longing (especially for what is forbidden):--concupiscence, desire, lust (after).
In some churches, churches that while professing to be Christian, really do not follow the teachings of Christ, are preachers who preach not God's word but what they know God meant to say. They are men and women who ignore some of the most basic instructions of Christ.
A perfect example of that is found in Matthew chapter 25:When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory, and before Him shall be gathered all nations (people): and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.
And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King (Christ) say unto them on His right hand, ?Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world, for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in, naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.' Matthew 25: 31-36 ACP/KJV
Yet there are pastors today, who refuse to visit the sick, refuse to visit widows, homeless, prisoners, and others in need of a representative of Christ, for as we see in Romans 10:12-15, all need to be introduced to Christ, even those who cannot tithe, who cannot come to church, who are poor, sick, diseased and incarcerated. Those pastors are Kakos epithumia.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:12-15 ACP/KJV
You see the word of God is not hard to understand, if one is just willing to study what is said regardless of how much it hurts.
Sometime in the not too distant future I want to talk to you men in the Militias, about Luke 20:25 and Matthew 24:24.
Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.
As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.
Nai erchomai Kurios Iesous.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
