THE PROMOTION OF SIN
Yes we are forgiven, yes God just loves us all of us. Now are we taking advantage of this grace? Not desiring to quit any and all sin, in response to this wonderful grace lavished on us all, in appreciation. We have been told we are not faithful, but God is. So in response to this since I am not faithful, is this in essence promoting sin?
I am told that my body is not redeemed, my flesh then is deceived me so I would continue in sin, but I would try to stop it and God will give me further forgiveness. So am I being deceived into the continuance of Sin from the energy of my own flesh? Do you agree with this? What a master plan of the evil spiritual warfare.
Do you really think God wants us to ever sin again when he came to take it away? I am hearing from all over Christendom that we are in unredeemed bodies so therefore in essence God understands our sin and we just keep on trying to quit in the energy of our own flesh our unredeemed bodies that will never quit sinning. Sounds good doesn’t it, gives me a fresh start to try all over again, I feel good about myself, especially as long as I ask for forgivingness; God understands and just loves me. You know like Adam and Eve well I guess I could eat of this tree God said I would die but you know God just love me, and this is true God just love you. But what about neglecting what God tells you would be the outcome. God is not a liar, but man is.
Look you all sin is being promoted by; you can’t quit sinning from clergy all over the world but you must quit and we as well who have fallen into this deception that we got to quit sinning in our flesh that is. And this is true coming from flesh the world, and all its traps to keep one sinning over and over.
There is an escape as we are also told about God providing the escape. This escape is through one dying to their own flesh that they were originally born with. Let us look at Scripture a little closer
6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
Do you see this, are you listening, if you are dead to sin (flesh) then you can’t live any longer in it can you?
3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
So go to God in prayer and ask in private to show you this truth of what Paul is saying. Okay let us keep going on here
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
Paul continues to bring it home that we are to dead to the Flesh (Sin) and this can only be through death in the flesh. So we are usually left with we are still alive in the flesh because our bodies are not redeemed, so therefore sin that is condemned to the flesh in us is promoted through a false humility and we just can’t stop sinning. We are a deceived people.
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
Now re-read 8-10 then read verse 11 then re-read the whole and see in order to be with God here and now we need to verse 11
11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
God has provided the way and the only way to life is through Christ after death to our flesh with Christ back at the cross, then God the Father will raise you back to life a new one where sin has been taken away in you now, from the new birth.
Just most people I have found do not go the distance and either do not care and do not believe or claim to believe yet still sin thinking they are good because they are forgiven already or they ask for further forgiveness. Never coming to the truth of dying today and every day to the flesh were all sin has been condemned to through the cross of Christ
1 John 3:4-6
4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him
So brothers and sisters if you are still sinning go to God and seek to be able to stop from God’s vantage point. But know this that this stopping from sinning is from and in God alone through you trusting God that the righteousness to stop, the ability is from faith
17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
True Faith (trust) in the living God produces in and through you the righteousness of God, you are no longer alive you are just a vessel used by God to bring in the sheep by God using your dead body.
All any of this takes is for you to believe by the operation of God you are first dead to the flesh and then made alive with God forever more.
You see just as Jesus said you must be born again read it John 3. If you are not dead to flesh you are not his, for he can’t raise you back to life as he did Jesus Christ. So start today reckoning yourself dead to flesh and alive to God. Continue this practice every day and you will start growing in his Grace, unto completion this might happen instantaneously or over a period of years, just have God become your complete dependency, and God will carry on the work needed to keep you in his arms resting

2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
Did you hear that, have no doubt, and wait on the Lord. If you ask for deliverance will you get it? Will it happen if you second guess this as we all have been taught never the less your will Father not mine. I know I used this saying as an excuse for my doubt, how about you?
How about this, Lord I do not know how you will deliver me, but I know you will for you said you will and you are not a liar. Also Lord I do not know when you will deliver me from _____________ whatever it is that any of you or I have asked for, and any adversity along the way is for my good somehow, someway, I thank you for this wonderful life you have given me freely, at no expense of my own. So I will wait no matter how long it takes and learn from each and every situation, For I believe Father that you know what is best for me as well as everyone else whether it looks bad or good, I put me in your hands to do with me as you see fit!!!! How about any of you?
12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
Did you hear that all of us are tempted when dragged away by our own fleshly desires, thus when we think about it (enticed) the desire has conceived and sin is born, and we do what we do not really want to do, yet we can’t stop it. Who will save me, you or anyone else from this Body of Sin and Death?
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
So I say let us diligently seek truth, for the engrafted word and die to our own fleshly desires and everyone else’s as well. No flesh in God’s sight will ever please God, and all sin has been condemned to the flesh at the cross. Therefore it is Christ that delivers you the believer from all evil, even though evil is all around you here on this earth, but it no longer affects you and nor do you participate in it any longer, because you are covered and smothered in The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.
Now you are prepared with the engrafted word to tell others of your joy that remains in spite of the circumstances around you, as Paul counted all things to be a joy, shipwrecked, in jail, bit by a snake a poisonous one. Therefore he said nothing can separate him from the love of God, how about you are you about to take the step off of the cliff Spiritually, and considering yourself dead to sin (Flesh)?
Romans 6 New International Version (NIV)
Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ
6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Are we listening, it states don’t you know that when we were baptized we were baptized into his death. To me the baptism is the Holy Ghost baptism, but I tell you truth water is a symbol and if this is what you did a symbol then you symbolized you dying to your flesh self and when raised back out of the water you symbolized you coming back to life a new life in Christ. So now ask for the Holy Ghost that comes with fire to burn out any dross, evil in your way from knowing the Father of all through Christ.
Now if you got water baptized for the reason to join a church, then motive is fleshly and you will work from the flesh, the Law to do what is right and can’t. When you do what is right you will be proud and boastful, because it would be you doing it, and truly that is the only reward one will ever get.
Think on this wise do not give up what you need in the long run for what you think you need at the moment
This is what Christ came for is to set the people free from the bondage of doing wrong to others, being selfish that is. So you are in a situation and it does not look good you need money, a job, are you going to cheat, steal, and kill for what you need, when God promised if you will seek the kingdom of Heaven above all things then all your needs will be supplied.
Now I believe God how about you then Seek, seek and seek, trial and error, one can’t discover new oceans without the courage to take his eyes of the shore.

Joh 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Joh 8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Notice that those who commit sin are slaves to sin and thus they do not abide in the house forever. In other words they do not get eternal life.
But the Son/Jesus makes us free. Jesus is contrasting servant to sin with freedom in the son.
IF your truth does not free you from past sins and also free you from sinning present, then you are not free but still a slave.
One might then say what is sin?
1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
so sin is breaking or disobeying the law of God.
1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Notice that those who are born of God do not sin why? because /Jesus/His Son remains in him.
this is what freedom in the son is. freedom from sin/breaking the law.
1Jn 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
1Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
That is why Jesus said:
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
this can only be done by faith in Christ in us the hope of glory. All I know is it works, every sin I used to struggle with is now gone. am I tempted now and then? yes but:
1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
2Pe 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
There is indeed freedom in Jesus. His blood and power is sufficient for us. The grace of God is powerful, his love changes us into his image. He became like us so that we could follow His patter of obedience and then he paid for our sins.
Rom 8:3 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:
Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
IT is by the spirit that we receive power to obey by receiving Jesus by faith.
Eph 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
you can read it right there, By receiving the Holy Spirit we receive Jesus by faith and are filled with the fullness of God. we are transformed by His power.
How do I get this? Its a gift from Jesus, just ask for it in faith and it is yours.
Luk 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Ask now and receive and grow in truth. be transformed by the renewing of your mind. this freedom brings real results. We can keep the law. or rather should I say Christ in our heart causes us to keep the law by his power and his love. love is the fulfillment of the law.
Then you will know the peace of God that passes understanding. you will no longer serve unrighteousness. sin will become hateful to you. Jesus becomes our all. blessings.
This was written to me on http://ChristianChat.com And wow it is truth just stick it out learning from God through God and if God sends any vessels to you to kick start your eternal life
