Corrupting ourselves through desire..

( 31 ) Ga 5:17 For the flesh lusteth "chamad" against the Spirit , and the Spirit against the flesh : and these are contrary the one to the other : so that ye cannot do the things that ye would .

.. The flesh desires against the Holy Spirit .. An abuse of power..

( 32 ) 1Ti 3:1 This is a true saying , If a man desire the office of a bishop , he desireth "chamad" a good work .

.. office of a bishop he desire .. A good use of the word "desire"

( 33 ) Heb 6:11 And we desire "chamad" that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end :

.. desire ..

( 34 ) Jas 4:2 Ye lust "chamad", and have not : ye kill , and desire to have , and cannot obtain : ye fight and war , yet ye have not , because ye ask not .

.. desire .. Nothing wrong with desiring power..Ask and ye shall receive..

( 35 ) 1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed , that not unto themselves , but unto us they did minister the things , which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven ; which things the angels desire "chamad" to look into .

.. which things the angels desire ..

( 36 ) Re 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death , and shall not find it ; and shall desire "chamad" to die , and death shall flee from them .

.. find it and shall desire ..

( 37 ) Mr 4:19 And the cares of this world , and the deceitfulness of riches , and the lusts "chamad" of other things entering in , choke the word , and it becometh unfruitful . {lusts: or, inordinate desires}

.. of riches and the desire of the world.. The world has the idea that to take power is a sign of success. The Bible does not condemn the desire for power, only that we should give power away, not take power for selfish use. A good example of power and desire was Solomon. But as he was given more power, he desired more. Eventually little by little, he wanted to take power rather than give power away...so the desire for power corrupted the latter part of his reign and he sinned.

Tithing was designed by God to reduce the abuse of power through desire. If we learn to give power away, Jesus can give us more power to give away, What tends to happen is we become selfish and we take power to ourselves. Than our desire corrupts us and we sin.

( 38 ) Lu 22:15 And he said unto them , With desire "chamad" I have desired "chamad" to eat this passover with you before I suffer : {With desire...: or, I have heartily desired}

.. .. said unto them With desire .. With desire I have desire ..

( 39 ) Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil , and the lusts "chamad" of your father ye will do . He was a murderer from the beginning , and abode not in the truth , because there is no truth in him . When he speaketh a lie , he speaketh of his own : for he is a liar , and the father of it . {of his own: or, from his own will or disposition}

.. the devil and the desire of your father (Satan) .. Notice Satan is called a "father" of this world, and we are his "children" Satan fell from heaven because of sin. He was proud for position, that was not his. And he desired for power, that was not his.

( 40 ) Ro 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts "chamad" of their own hearts , to dishonour their own bodies between themselves :

.. through the desire ..
