Proverbs 9:17-18 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

"I believed in once saved always saved", says the greedy of heart and sinful "professing Christian". Sin is Death-Darkness- "The wrath of God!"

*THE LORD'S BANNER*

HOLINESS-PEACE!__If the Son therefore shall make you free {from sin}, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36) Then said Jesus to those ...which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, {to be holy..free from this worlds lust and love for it} then are ye my disciples indeed; (John 8:31)
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)"THE ONLY JEW GOD LOVES"

(God does more than just repair but a new creation [spirit, attitude, motive, cleansing and wiping away guilt of conscience to be His]; to deliver from the power or bondage of our sinful habits [nature] that we built in our rebellion against the righteousness of God so our sins do not have any more control over us in Christ at that moment. Meaning we do not have to serve them anymore-sinful habits, providing we stay in holiness obeying God and seeking to please Him and not self anymore.)

 

 

Now we see what the “sufferings, death and resurrection of Christ” really is. These are the results of the sufferings, death and resurrection of Christ to the world. It is a totally free will sacrifice, at no charge, by Christ of sufferings and rejection, His blood and broken body, to attain a relationship with God, forgiven and free of sin, by whomsoever will choose to accept the already freely acquired reconciliation by Christ the Lord, to be justified, to the whole world [the forgiveness of sins and restoring of ones spirit to be Holy-healed-whole]. It’s by faith to grab it, accepting the gift of Christ, that it’s yours, but its in Holiness remaining in Christ, not sinning or rebelling against Him again, a commitment of faith in Christ Jesus the Lord for you to be obedient in spirit and in truth. Christ delivers from sin and out of sin not covers nor saves one in sin. You are a sinner, if sinning, [having a guilty conscience and knowing you are not worshipping God in honest truth] or you are Holy in Christ in obedience to His word. Christ’s sacrifice was a free undeserved loving sacrifice on our behalf . It was not a legal penalty payment per sin, past, present or future or to acquit the world, on the whole, of the “guilt of conscience” of rebelling against God’s righteousness, deserving of the wrath of God. [God doesn’t know your future choices anyway].



We were lost and cursed and God would have had to destroy us all but Jesus volunteered to come, giving up His crown, to suffer, be persecuted, shed His blood and suffer on the cross, His body being broken, then die in open shame with criminals on each side, outside His own nation like a rebel. He was a lamb without spot volunteered to come to the slaughter of Him-self so we might be able to live with Him and His Father with the blessings of forgiveness [remitted-gone-not to live them anymore] of sins to be Holy righteous and perfect, in relationship loving Him by obedience in spirit and in truth to His word sinning no more. Christ’s atonement was not a payment for a debt we owed God. He is a “freewill love offering, Son of God”, to come and provide “a way” for God to forgive and have fellowship with His created beings in Holiness. He is not a payment for a debt, but a free voluntary, on our behalf, in open shame for us sinners to come and sin no more, a sacrifice, having No strings of legalism attached just  love- compassion.  â€œSin no more.”

 

 

Romans 5:1  (only to the believer in Christ) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: {in Holiness not sinning}

Romans 5:6-11  For when we were yet without strength [unable to save ourselves from the bondage of our willful created sinful habits {nature}, guilty conscience and dead spirit separated from the life of God.], in due time Christ died for the ungodly[us].  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us [notice its love gift not a payment for a debt], in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Much more then,
being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, “we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son” [This means that He made a way and God has forgiven the curse man incurred but does not mean all have accepted the fact of reconciliation. Those who don’t obey do remain under the curse and are rebels, criminals, against God], MUCH MORE, [how much more] being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life [because He lives-holiness is salvation not sinning]. And not only so, but we [believers] also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

 

 

Read the rest of chapter five and give God praise for His abundant goodness to us. One has to accept the “free gift of Christ” in loving humbleness to be Holy and obedient. Its not law that one can do or something one can earn but being repentant and by faith, accepting Christ to the glory of God to live holy and in agape [compassionate ] love, being obedient to His word anywhere, anytime and any place. Legalism isn’t love, but bondage, and God doesn’t want legalism but love for Him and His word to live it, freedom. It’s No other way. Its faith or face the wrath of God. Only two choices you have. The 10 commandments are for the rebellious and sinners to come to Christ and live by faith not to live by them for by the law is the knowledge of sin and the Law cannot clear the conscience of guilt but demands punishment for disobedience.

Law minded self righteous people love their works [tradition and legalism] not God’s works [John 6.29] remaining with a guilty conscience and dead spirit!  The Love of God to be in Christ, living by faith [clean conscience full of faith], is the whole sum and essence of what the 10 commandments stand for. Jesus Christ fulfills the law which is love, holiness and sinning no more, [compassion], for God and my fellowman, to be delivered from the bondage of my selfishness and greed, being disobedient to God and His word, and be compatible with God and my fellowman in the obedience to God’s word in Holiness. The law only takes care of the outward not the inner man, the heart. The law demands punishment, once broken and any one part is the braking of all of it, and gives no mercy, but is righteous in its demand.  “Repent! Sin no more!

 

 

One must understand “Christ’s atonement is totally a voluntary free Holiness gift to all who will come, anyone. There is no more Jew or Greek but the spiritual Jew in Christ. Therefore His death acquit the guilt of no one, nor covered anyone’s sins unless they bowed their life to Christ in repentance towards God to remain Holy in Christ living by faith. The covenant of the New testament is strictly between God and His Son, the Lord Jesus. It was not made between God and mankind. We come to God in Christ only and our life is hid in Him and eternal life is ours only if we stay in Christ without sin obeying, living out His word in faith. Eternal life is the “knowledge of the Father and the Son” , inner witness knowing Him by knowing Christ by obeying His word and seeking God’s truth to live it.  “Sin no more”.

 

2 John 1:9-10  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

 

Its not religious [staying in sin knowing you are doing so and justifying yourself by self righteous acts deceiving yourself trying to bury your guilty conscience] duty but “knowing God through Christ” living His truth Holy righteous and perfect in faith with a clean conscience always. Its fellowship not religion. Its worshipping God in spirit and in truth as He says it. [John 6.29] “This is the work of God is to believe on the one whom He has sent.”  Not your vanity Jesus of the 21st century allowing you to wallow in sin so you will die forever.
