CAN SIN STOP ETERNITY ?
Sin may not be what you think it is . . .
Dealing with Sin we discover . . . It is the interpretation of Sin , THAT is . . . what
actually messes up ,
our victory over it.
The result of being of this world, unfortunately, we experience STRUGGLE. It can be the weak against the strong, the good against the bad, always on guard, living in toil, worry and stress. We learn quickly our situation, is not always safe and we are definitely quite unsure of a lot of things ! Sometimes it might even mean kill or be killed ! Our circumstance can be quite precarious. Commonly the experience. . . is the feeling of having to defend, having lack, feeling empty, in fear, in want, actually taking or stealing,more wanting, being very needy, yes a lot of worrying , stressing and experiencing the fear of loss .
GUESS WHAT ? THAT IS SUMMATION OF WHAT is ‘SIN’. It is the ‘RESULT’, not what is done or not done!
So this misunderstanding of what ' sin ' itself is . . . is WHAT makes us unable to have victory over it, and we absolutely will succumb to certain defeat !
This world has a lot of great REASONS for sin. It is defined and being understood as a natural condition of all man, woman and child . . . and to commit sin is unavoidable.
‘The little bitty ones,’ ARE THE ONES I make, and the ‘BIG GIANT ONES’ are the ones you make!
Surely there seems to be only a casual understanding and consideration of this concept of sin. Yet in our true self ‘sin’ has a confounding all consuming negative affect on us.
Confounding means to cause surprise or confusion in (someone), especially by acting against their expectations.
Many are being deceived that they don't even have to consider sin , or they alone can determine sin , whether they are little bitty ones or big giant ones . Oh , and everybody has the excuses for sin and sure a lot of blame for someone or something else . The world today agrees they are going to heaven because of all the good they are doing to make up for those little transgressions !
NOW! what if you understood that SIN
means simply "not seeing God !"
and that is what literally causes death !
Isaiah 6:10 " . . . they will not see with their eyes , nor hear with their ears , nor understand with their hearts and turn to Me for healing . ”
Our current fallen world defines sin as doing things wrong , or doing things bad or evil. Missing the mark, and all these things and ideas are of the world that
[IS ALWAYS NEEDING TO FIND "GOOD TIME CHARLIE, PLASTIC BANANA, SELF PLEASURE, FEEL GOOD, ROCK AND ROLL PARTY ALL THE TIME " ] and not God.
The result of being of this world is always being in condemnation, worry and stress. People in that condition are always defending, having lack, feeling empty, fear, taking or stealing, wanting, needing , worrying , stressing and experiencing loss . Their misunderstanding of what ' sin ' itself is makes them unable to have victory over it , and they succumb to certain defeat !
Jesus says ,
" I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life , no one comes to the Father except through Me , I Am the good Shepherd , Who looks after My sheep . "
So you see , it is not up to us , WHAT WE DO OR DON'T DO , It is Jesus Who is the only way to God !
Jesus also says,
" I Am not of this world , you should not be either ! "
[ If we are with Jesus, Jesus keeps us from sin and evil ] . THERE IS NO DARKNESS IN THE LIGHT, SO IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT , WE ARE FREE FROM ALL DARKNESS ! ]
WHAT MATTERS TO GOD . . . is . . .
DO WE KNOW THE CURE, THE REMEDY ?
Do we see Him and know Him ! Do we know we
are His ? DO WE KNOW WE TRULY , ARE HIS ?
WE ARE NOT ADOPTED OR JUST BY MERE KINDNESS ACCEPTED INTO GOD'S FAMILY.
GOD SAYS ALL FLESH , ALL SOULS ARE "MINE !"
KNOW We are His very own, cherished and beloved !
NOW! if WE understand that SIN
means simply "not seeing God !"
and that is what literally causes death !
When we "see" and "know " God we
are close to God and all of His blessings !
We now can enjoy true life and ETERNITY !
1. SIN is of the World, and the World itself 'cannot
see or "know" God', which should be the true understanding of SIN . Many act like they know God , but still walk in the way of the world. They experience the same desires and follies of the world.
Conversely, if you are looking to and are walking with God there is no Sin, since nothing can stand
up to the realm of God being that God is all Righteousness and Perfection free from all evil.
Nothing can interfere with GOD AND HIS TRUE LOVE !
2. EVIL is all about setting up WALLS , distractions , influences , EXCUSES and other intents other than GOD .
EVIL IS A DECEIVER THAT DESTROYS ALL IN ITS PATH AND THEN DESTROYS ITSELF ! EVIL AND DARKNESS APPEAR TO POTENTIALLY BLOCK THE THINGS OF GOD , BUT THEY CAN NEVER INTERFERE WITH GOD'S MAJESTY AND DOMINION !
GOD IS THE ONE WHO IS ALL SUPERIOR !
GOD REMAINS TRUE IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE !
HE IS FREEDOM TO ALL WHO TRUST IN HIM !
So sin and evil are illusions, and so is death, by falsely presupposing they can stop or prevent the life flow of God. THESE THINGS ARE considered by God to be only transient, meaning they are only temporary and are not real and will not remain. YES , EVIL DESIRES AND THOUGHTS LEAD TO GREAT HAVOC AND REEK A LOT OF DESTRUCTION AND DEATH . They are against God and the things of God , and even though they may seem powerful God has created them to be destroyed and eliminated AND TO BE NO MORE . ( see future blogs on predators and the Lake of Fire. )
When people "see" and "know" God and understand God is their very Life and breath and that God lives in them , there is freedom from evil and darkness.
YES THAT EASY !
God is the One Who made us !
( in HIS HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS - in His very image) .
We are made to easily "see" and "know" God .
God in us is our resistance to the desire or thought of anything of evil and darkness . Because God made us to want and need Him and nothing in this whole wide world or universe can satisfy us like God can !
That IS, what it means to be FREE INDEED !
Therefore, in the reality of God, it is up to us to defeat anything of evil and darkness by trusting in the power and dominion of God in us. God maintains us if we trust Him. We benefit by God's Completeness , His Satisfaction , comfort , and protection .
The only thing that will remain in the long run and truly be lasting and TRULY REAL and Forever . . . is Everything of God !
TURN TO GOD , SEE AND KNOW YOU ARE HIS !
In this matter, Romans 6:23 gets right to the point :
" The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord . "
Let's translate Romans in a different way for better understanding : For the result of " not seeing God " is [darkness, evil ] death, but the gift of God is seeing God and eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord, because it is Jesus who opens our, "
eyes to God ! "
Give yourself to God, let God be the One responsible for you !
God created us to fellowship with Him and if WE can't sense or SEE God . . . WE can’t be in fellowship with Him !
WITHOUT GOD WE ARE EMPTY AND DON'T LAST . . . WITH GOD WE ARE FILLED UP AND LAST FOREVER !
For a lot of people , there SEEMS to be a separation, a divorce happening within their very self . They are on a forever search for themselves , ' who ARE they ?' 'what is my purpose ? ' THEY, and a lot of the time, even many who claim to know God [ but really don't ] are determined to find "that something" that can fill up that hole inside them.
They are all on the same journey . . .
NOW review ! SIN means " not seeing God ! "
WHAT IF THAT EMPTY HOLE HAS A SIMPLE REMEDY ? IT JUST NEEDS FOR US TO SEE AND BE FILLED UP WITH GOD !
Understand, God wants us to SEE Him and ENLIGHTENMENT is EXACTLY why Jesus
came into this world ! FOR US TO SEE YOU GOD !
Jesus came to reveal God to us, so we would never again be empty and ARE ABLE NOW to remain forever in ETERNITY ,seeing and knowing the fullness of God !
God wants us to be with Him, to SEE HIM , and therefore have a complete fellowship with Him .
HOW DO WE DO THIS ? GOD DOES IT !
JESUS SAYS " I AM THE LIFE. "
As a believer, you truly are a child of God
[ HIS FAMILY ] . To believe in Jesus is to
come to a understanding of Who Jesus is.
Jesus is the perfect revelation of God , that
means , if you wanted to know everything
about God, you could find everything about
God in Jesus !
The Bible points to Jesus as the fullness, the
complete representation of all that God is .
That's what it means that Jesus is the COMPLETE REVELATION of God.
Salvation means, becoming all of God's, and with Jesus we attain all the fullness of God in us . We
can see and know God by Jesus living inside us.
It may seem very complicated but actually it's not. You know how easy it is to do evil by just a thought or desire, but now in a more superior way and more powerful life changing way by just wanting the fullness of God , by just turning to God, He does the rest !
Jesus is Emmanuel 'God with us', He allows us to see God and amazingly see God in us ! Jesus says, " by the Power from On High ! "
CAN YOU SEE ? . . . ONLY WHEN YOU SEE !
JESUS IS OUR VERY LIFE , OUR VERY BREATH ,
OUR VERY HEARTBEAT !
God says, " when you honor Him, your life ( Him ) , you become so honorable, when you value your life ( Him ) , you become so so valuable , when you find the treasure ( His Life in you ) , you become the treasure . " God says , " when you live by " My Heart and Soul " you endure forever ! "
EVERYTHING IS DONE BY GOD . . . ALL OF HIS HEART, ALL OF HIS SOUL, ALL OF HIS MIND, ALL OF HIS MIGHT, ALL OF HIS LIFE , AND ALL OF HIS LOVE . . . IN US !
When we understand this one thing alone, THAT GOD WILL DO IT , everything else about us and what we are to know , becomes SO MUCH MORE clearer to us.
" But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were [ condemned ] under the law [ because they can't see God ], that we might receive the acceptance of God as sons and daughters [ that we could SEE God and live forever as family, because everything of God is forever ] ."
( Galatians 4:4-5 )
Man was created by GOD as a direct
EXPRESSION OF HIMSELF , GOD’S ALL ENCOMPASSING, ALTOGETHER BEAUTIFUL EXCELLENCE , GOODNESS , GOD’S ALL .
GOD IS PERFECT AND THERE IS NO FLAW OR BLEMISH , NO DARKNESS, IN HIM . HE IS THE FULLNESS OF ALL THAT WE ARE TO BE , FOREVER AND EVER . GOD IS , AND WILL ALWAYS BE OUR PERFECTION . NO SIN IN PERFECTION . HE WILL ALWAYS BE THE SAME . . . WITH US . . . PERFECT AND ETERNAL !
WE COME ALIVE !
If then , God is perfect . . . He doesn't need anything else . . . but God so loved the world that HE gave His Son , Jesus that whosoever would believe would have Everlasting Life . . . JESUS, ETERNITY.
GOD'S GREATNESS AND EVER EXPANDING LOVE MADE US , SO WE CAN SEE HIM . . .
SO WE CAN SEE HIM AND SEE WE ARE BECAUSE OF HIM , AND WE ARE SUPPOSE TO REMAIN
WITH HIM !
A SIGNIFICANT ONENESS !
THE SAME !
