“No Condemnation – 201”…Blog. [2/2]
*** (1John 1:8) If we ‘say’ = that we ‘do not’ have any Sin, = we are ‘Deceiving’ ourselves = and = the Truth = is ‘not’ in us.
*** (Acts 17:11) These people were more receptive than those in Thessalonica. They were very willing to receive the Word, and every day they ‘carefully’ examined the Scriptures to see if those things were so [or Not!].
Continuing this Discussion… we must distinguish between our “Position in Christ”… and our “Practice in Christ!” Salvation brings ‘one’ comes “OUT” from the Darkness of this World and the Practice of SIN; into the “LIGHT” of the Glorious Gospel of Christ! Do they bring “ANY” of the “Baggage of Sin”… into that New Life in Christ…? Please answer the question; “Yes” or “No”…? Is their New Life in Christ “Immediately Transformed” or… is it a “Work in Progress”…? Are they Immediately Forgiven for All SIN/SINS… Past, Present and Future… or; are there SIN/SINS… that they do; which they Must Ask for Forgiveness for…?
*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who covers his sins shall not be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves them shall have mercy.
*** (1John 1:5-to-10) This is the message that we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness-none at all!
(1Jn 1:6) If we claim that we have fellowship with him but keep living in the darkness, we are lying and the truth is not in us.
(1Jn 1:7) But if we keep living in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
(1Jn 1:8) If we say that we do not have ‘any’ sin, = we are ‘deceiving’ ourselves = and the Truth is not in us.
(1Jn 1:9) If we make it our habit to confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us those sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have never sinned, we make him a liar and his word is not in us.
*** Forgiveness – 101 …Blog.
That is the “POINT”… that brings about confusion; when one cannot and will not… “Separate”; their “Position in Christ” = from = their “Practice in Christ!” When One is Forgiven, Redeemed, Sealed with the Holy Spirit… they cannot continue to ‘Live’… as they did before! IF they do… one of two things will take Place: They will either be Chastened by God [Spanked] = or they will be taken Home… Early! Also “Many” leave the Church… when they were “NOT” Truly Born Aging… furthering the Lie that one can lose their Salvation! “Many” who ‘supposedly’ came to Christ after “9-11”… no longer want anything to do with the Bible of Jesus!
*** (Matthew 9:17) Nor do men put new wine into old wineskins; else the wineskins burst, and the wine runs out, and the wineskins perish. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved together.
*** (1John 2:19) They left us, but they were not part of us, for if they had been part of us, they would have stayed with us. They simply made it clear that none of them was really part of us.
*** (Matthew 5:48) So be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
*** (Hebrews 12:6-7-8) For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he punishes every son he accepts."
(Heb 12:7) What you endure is for the sake of discipline. God is treating you as sons. Is there a son whom his father does not discipline?
(Heb 12:8) Now if you are without any discipline, in which all sons share, then you are illegitimate and not his sons.
Salvation – temp-or-permanent - 101?
Once Again, ‘Your’… “Position in Christ”… is ‘separate’ from your “Practice in Christ!” As you grow in His Mercy and Grace; and learn to Obey… ‘More & More’… of His Holy Word; your “Practice in Christ”; comes closer to your; “Position in Christ!” Do you believe this or Not…? Stop and examine what I have said? Since you came to Jesus; have you grown closer to Him and do you Know & Practice; His Holy Word…? Or have you gone further away from His; and know less of His Holy Word…?
*** (John 15:3) You are already clean because of the Word that I [Jesus] have spoken to you.
*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed day by day.
*** (Matthew 11:27-to-30) All things are delivered to Me by My Father. And no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son will reveal Him.
(Matt 11:28) Come to Me [Jesus] all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I [Jesus] will give you rest.
(Matt 11:29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls.
(Matt 11:30) For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
*** (2Peter 3:18) But grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Once Again… Your “Position in Christ”… is different than your “Practice in Christ!” Through the Entire Bible, both OT & NT… God, the God of the Bible; trains His Real Children. He expects a response from those that are His; to be able to share His Love, Mercy & Grace… to a dying world of Lost Sinners! You are “His Witnesses”… just as OT Israel was to be His Witness! Did they Fulfill His Mandate…? Hardly, as they were Chastened; ‘Over’ and ‘Over’ and ‘Over’… Again! Did they “Hear & Obey”… God and to His Prophets; or did they continually disobey, and go into “Captivity”, in Babylon for 70 years…?
*** (Isaiah 43:12) I have declared, and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you; therefore you are My witnesses, says Jehovah, that I am God.
*** (Luke 24:47-48) and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His [Christ Jesus] name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
*** (Malachi 3:6) For I am Jehovah [God], I change not. Because of this you sons of Jacob are not destroyed.
*** (Hebrews 13:8) Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever.
*** (Matthew 5:17-18) “Do Not” think that I [Jesus] have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill.
(Matt 5:18) For truly I [Jesus] say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law ‘until’ all is fulfilled.

“It is ‘Finished!’ – 201”…Blog. [2/2]
Simply ‘ask’ yourself… “Till ‘What’ be Fulfilled”…? Till God’s Plan for His chosen people Israel! They have been set aside; and the Gospel has been given to the Gentiles to disseminate. When these times have been Fulfilled; ‘The Times of the Gentiles… God will restore His people Israel… and Christ Jesus will rule again in Jerusalem! At the end of that age of “1,000-years”… Satan will be loosed from His prison; and once again; deceive the Nation. Yes even after all that time of peace & prosperity; people will still turn against the Jews and Jesus!
*** (Luke 21:24) They will fall by the edge of the sword and be carried off as captives among all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the gentiles until the times of the gentiles are fulfilled."
*** (Hebrews 10:9-to-18) Then said He [Jesus], Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He takes away the first, that He may establish the second.
(Heb 10:10) By this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
(Heb 10:11) And indeed every priest stands daily ministering and offering often the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
(Heb 10:12) But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right of God,
(Heb 10:13) from then on expecting until His enemies are made His footstool.
(Heb 10:14) For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
(Heb 10:15) The Holy Spirit also is a witness to us; for after He had said before,
(Heb 10:16) "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord; I will put My Laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,"
(Heb 10:17) also He adds, "their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more."
(Heb 10:18) Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
In the OT Economy… the “Law” brought about Justification. But it carried with it a Daily Sacrifice for Sin; which included “All” the Other Sacrifices; Ordinances; Precepts; Statutes and the like. Their “Tithes”; included about 40% of their gross income. The Holy Spirit was not resident as He is in the NT believer. In the NT Economy… this Passover sacrifice; “Christ Our Passover [1Corinthians 5:7]; was that one time Sacrifice for All Sin; Past, Present & Future! Never to be Sacrificed Again. Hence our Position in Christ! Our Justification in Christ! Our Forgiveness in Christ!
*** (Romans 10:3-4-5) For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness for everyone who believes.
(Rom 10:5) For Moses writes of the righteousness which is of the Law, "The man who does those things shall live by them."
*** (Galatians 2:16) knowing = that a man is ‘not’ justified = by works of the Law, = but through ‘faith’ in Jesus Christ; = even we believed in Jesus Christ, = that we might be ‘justified’ by the faith = in Christ, = and = not by works of the Law. = For all flesh = will ‘NOT’ be justified = by works of law.

“One ‘more’ Time”… Your “Position in Christ”… is different than; Your… “Practice in Christ!” If it were not sow; there would not be all those Admonitions throughout the New Testament; “How to Live Righteously!” Simply read through the NT; and make a list of those Corrections; spoke about in the Scriptures. One more thing… simply take Scriptures and Prove; what I or anyone else teaches…! That is Your Responsibility…!
*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' but don't do what I tell you?
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and ‘not’ merely hearers who Deceive themselves.
Love in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
