Reputation of the Flesh or the Soul and Spirit

Reputation of the Flesh or the Soul and Spirit  
 
 
Let us remember not to be concerned about our reputation as those of the flesh do. But instead, let us focus on walking in Christ Spiritual example:  
 
Matthew 7:12-14 (KJV)
12  Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
 
13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  
 
Romans 8:1-6 (KJV)
1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
 
2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
 
4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
 
5  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  
 
Galatians 5:16-18 (KJV)
16  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
 
17  For the flesh lusted 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.
 
18  But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.  
 
Galatians 5:22-26 (KJV)
22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 
24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
 
25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26  Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.  


Walking in the Flesh and Living By the Spirit

Walking in the Flesh and Living By the Spirit

  Romans 7:20-25 (KJV)

20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
 
23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
 
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.  
 
In these five verses Paul describes the daily battle of the Born Again, the Righteous of God. In which we have to continually walk IN the flesh while at the same time live daily, walk BY the Spirit of Faith and Obedience.  
 
So, some may say, if Born Again why the struggle? The Reason is that; when we are Born Again, have our mind renewed to the Spirit. We receive only the promise of salvation and because of this we must endure or overcome to the end, as it is written;  
 
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endures to the end shall be saved.  
 
Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.  
 
Revelation 3:21 (NKJV) Laodiceans Lukewarm 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.  
 
Revelation 21:7 (NKJV) 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.  
 
Then some may ask why, just the promise and not the gift of salvation? The Holy Spirit speaking through Jesus and Paul explain;  
 
John 6:63 (AKJV)
63 It is the spirit that quickens (gives life); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.  
1 Corinthians 15:50 (AKJV)
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
 
So, we can see that until the Flesh and Soul are separated, either by the physical death of the Flesh or the coming of Christ and the Rapture/ Resurrection. WE cannot receive the gift of salvation, eternal life. For “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
 
However, we have hope in Christ through the Holy Spirit. For Christ the Living Word of God came to us in both the Letter and the Spirit. The Letter to help guide our flesh unto God’s Grace and Mercy so to stand before Him. And the Spirit of the Word, the True Blood of Christ, to was us clean and receive the promise of salvation. All so we can endure to the end and over come evil and the flesh of sin.
 
All as it is written;
Romans 2:28-29(NKJV) For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.  
 
Romans 3:19, 20(NKJV) Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.   Therefore, by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  
 
Romans 7:5-6(NKJV) For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.   But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.  
 
2 Corinthians 3:4-6(NKJV) And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.  
 
Galatians 3:23-26 (KJV) But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.   But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  
 
So, let us learn from Paul’s words, understanding the difference between the Letter and Spirit of the Living Word, Christ Jesus. Allow the Letter of the Word to teach us God’s Will and seek to put the Spirit of the Living Word, Christ Example, into daily application in all we Do and Say. As it is written;
 
Romans 8:1-9 (KJV)
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
 
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
 
3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
 
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
 
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
 
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.  
 
So, let all seek to be Born Again, Indwelled by the Holy Spirit, as it is written;
 
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV)
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  
 
1 John 3:9-11 (KJV)
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
 
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
 
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.          


Do We Truly Understand?

Do We Truly Understand?

 
Is our understanding according to the Living Word Christ Jesus? Or the Interpretation of Man?            
 
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV)
3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
 
6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  
 
Romans 6:3-14 (KJV)
3   Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
 
4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
 
6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7  For he that is dead is freed from sin.
 
8  Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9  Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
 
10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lived, he lived unto God.
 
11  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
12  Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13  Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
 
14  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.  
 
1 John 3:9-11 (KJV)
9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
 
10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
 
11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.  
 
Do we have the spiritual understanding that God has given unto the Born Again of the Indwelling? Or are we still stumbling in the chaos of interpretation of the Flesh?  
 
For it is written;
2 Peter 1:16-21 (KJV)
16  For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
 
17  For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18  And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
 
19  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
 
20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
 
21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.  


What comes out of the Mouth comes from the Heart

What comes out of the Mouth comes from the Heart      

Matthew 12:34-37 (KJV) 
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.    
 
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.    
 
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.    
 
Matthew 15:10-11, 16-20 (KJV) 
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defiles a man.  
 
16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? 17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?  
 
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.  
 
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:  
 
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man.  
 
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (KJV) 
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  
 
17 If any man defiles the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.  
 
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (KJV) 
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that committed fornication sinned against his own body.  
 
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.  
 
1 Timothy 1:5-11 (KJV) 
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; 7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.  
 
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for men stealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
 
11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.  


Redeem or Redemption

Redeem or Redemption

 
Look closely (below) at the meanings of Redeem and Redemption in both the Greek and the Hebrew. From these we can see it is the Redemption that is needed and not simply to be redeemed. Also Redeem is only used twice in the New Testament (KVJ), once as rescue and the other ransom.
 
For Christ died on the cross spilling His blood as the ransom price to redeem us. However without the Grace of God and most importantly our act of Faith and Obedience to His Will our Redemption is useless. Because we have to ask for it and then prove ourselves righteous in God’s eyes to receive His Redemption. (See; John 3:3, 5-7 and 1 John 3:9-11)
 
The only Free Gift from God is His Grace.
Romans 5:15-21 (KJV)
But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, has abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
 
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
 
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin has reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

This is time stand for Christ or face the consequences

This is time stand for Christ or face the consequences

 

Brothers and Sisters the time to start being doers and not just hearers only. It is time to start asking ourselves, do we really understand what it means to be Born Again?
Are we ready to Obey God’s Will and separate ourselves from the ways of the flesh and the world? And to walk the spiritual walk in Christ example?  
We are told;  
 
Matthew 5
37  But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.  
 
Matthew 12:30-32 (KJV)
30  He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathered not with me scattered abroad.  
 
We are commanded;  
Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)
19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  
 
We are commanded to  Separate;  
Isaiah 52:11-12 (NKJV)
Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the LORD.  
For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.  
 
2 Corinthians 6:17-18 (NKJV)
Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”  
 
But many will say we believe. And yes, some scriptures say, “if you believe you shall be saved”.
However, Man is Carnal, and God is Spiritual. So, Believing and Trusting as Man does in the flesh, is not enough!
We must put our Faith and obedience into application, be doers and not just hears!
And to do that by becoming Born Again according to the Word, Christ Jesus. We must become spiritual and live and walk by, in and through Christ’s Spiritual Example in our Souls and Eternal Spirit. Being Born Again.  
 
Born Again  
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV)
3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  
6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  
 
1 John 3:9-11 (KJV)
9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  
10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  
11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.  
 
1 John 4:6-8 (KJV) 6  We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.  
7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knows God. 8  He that loveth not knows not God; for God is love.  
 
1 John 5:1-6 (KJV)
1  Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.   3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4  For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.  
5  Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6  This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.  
 
1 John 5:17-19 (KJV)
17  All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.  
18  We know that whosoever is born of God sins not; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not. 19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.  
 
Then We must become spiritual judges. Judging Spiritually by, in, and through the Word, Christ Jesus. Judging good and evil deeds, according to the Word, Christ Jesus. The Living Word of God!  
 
1 Corinthians 2:12-16 (KJV)
12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14  But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  
15  But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.  
 
Brothers and Sisters, it is our choice, become of a Faith of a complete, desired and willing obedience. Separate and come from among them, uniting in the physical and spiritual Body of Christ, in the fellowship of the Assembly.
As the Born Again of the Indwelling of Christ. All according to the Word as it is written.  
If we cannot step out in Faith and pick up and go, when God calls us, to wherever and to whom ever God says go to.
And He is calling all that are Born Again in HIS eyes.
That means be willing to do what Jesus told the young man;  
 
Matthew 19:21 (KJV)
21  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.  
 
Then, according to the Word we need to try, test and prove our Faith as to if we are Born Again according to the Word. The Whole Word.
 


The Old Testament vs the New Testament scriptures

The Old Testament vs the New Testament scriptures
 
Food for thought. Many of us like to bear on single scriptures from the Old Testament without considering, changes that came about with the New Testament, going from being under the Law to being under Grace, and the changes, God put in place.  
 
Romans 3:19-22 (KJV)
19  Now we know that what things so ever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:  
 
Galatians 3:9-11 (KJV)
9  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
10  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continues not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
11  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.  
 
Galatians 3:22-24 (KJV)
22  But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
23  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  
 
First we must remember that we are now under grace and not the law. Under the New Testament and not the Old Testament.
Thus, we have new commands that replace the old. Such as we do not purse or overtake, we turn the other cheek and pray, we overcome by Faith.
For our battles are not of this world as in old but in the spiritual world.  
 
Ephesians 6:10-13 (KJV)
10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  
12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 
1 John 5:1-6 (KJV)
1  Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4  For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
5  Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6  This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.  
 
Second we ourselves decree, declare nothing. We can decree, declare, things through the power of God and Christ.
If it be God’s Will and not ours.  
 
Psalm 2:7 (KJV)
7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  
 
Finally we do not seek the prosperity of the things flesh and the world.  
 
Matthew 6:25, 32-34 (KJV)
25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these things.  
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  
 
Matthew 16:26  (AKJV)
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?  
 
John 6:63  (AKJV)
63 It is the spirit that quickens(gives life); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.  
 
1 Corinthians 15:50  (AKJV)
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.   1
 
Timothy 6:9-11  (AKJV)
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
 


BLOOD Of JESUS KEEPS ON CLEANSING YOU

BLOOD Of  JESUS KEEPS ON CLEANSING YOU

  This is a False Teaching of the church of man. Just as Christ died on the Cross ONCE for all. Christ Blood covers All PAST Sins, Once for All.
And here are the Words from the Holy Spirit Christ Jesus as proof.  
 
Romans 3:24-26 (KJV)
24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness  
 
for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;  
 
26  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  
 
Hebrews 10:26-27 (KJV)
26  For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remained no more sacrifice for sins, 27  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.  
 
1 John 3:9-10 (KJV)
9  Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  
10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  
11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.  
 
There are many people who call themselves Saved Christians, who believe as you have stated, and are in for a rude awaking when Christ comes.
For as it is written;  
 
Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV)
21  Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;
but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  
22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  
23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.  
 


We need more than just the Bible We need the Spirit Also

We need more than just the Bible We need the Spirit Also

Brother if you cannot understand these scriptures, you then need training yourself.
For the written Word is the knowledge of sin to teach us right from wrong.
But without the Spirit of the Word, all the Bibles in the world are unless. For no man will be justified in the sight of God by the Law alone.  
 
Romans 3:19-26 (KJV)
19  Now we know that what things so ever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  
20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
 
21  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
 
24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness  
 
for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
 
26  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  
 
Now listen to the truth of this;  
 
Letter and Spirit of the Word  
Jeremiah 31:31-34 (KJV)
31  Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was an husband unto them, said the LORD:  
33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, said the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, said the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.  
 
Romans 2:28-29(NKJV)
For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.  
 
Romans 3:19, 20(NKJV)
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all  the world may become guilty before God.  
Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  
 
Romans 7:5-6(NKJV)
For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.  
But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.  
 
2 Corinthians 3:4-6(NKJV)
And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.  
 
Galatians 3:23-26 (KJV)
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
 


This is all God promises us for our flesh. But in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

This is all God promises us for our flesh. But in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  

Matthew 6:25, 30-34 (KJV)
25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?  
 
30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?  
 
31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these things.  
 
33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  
34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  
 
However, God does promise us to give all that we need to do His work that He puts before us to complete. Both physical and spiritual.   So, let us ask spiritually and not ask amiss as it is written;  
 
James 4:1-3 (KJV)
1  From whence come wars and fighting among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?   2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.  
 
So let us;  
Philippians 4:4-7 (KJV)
4  Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5  Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6  Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7  And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
