Social Concern. – Caring for the Poor and Those Unloved. News :
From the Old Church of God of the New Covenant on the Poor among us: 20/20 When we hear a person saying things about the poor, those who have to use state programs for food and shelter we are in the very presence of evil those who hate the poor hate God and will hate you. Caring for those who need help , and in need are the concerns of the saved people of God. God takes them into His care through His saved people. Warning to the saved People of God What are you infront of when you have someone talking about what the poor are taking from the world ? What are they saying? They are saying the poor have no place in their world,
They are saying the what God has said does not matter to them. You are at that time in front of the worst Evil you could be with. They are Oppressing what God has a heart for. They are Mocking God and trying to get you to do the same. They are Glothing, on the disaster of others. They will not hear the cry of anyone. They are trying to get you to close your eyes to what God has said You, His people will do in His name.
They are trying to get you to not hear the cry of the poor. These have a contempt for God and will have it for you. Their Justice is to take what the poor have and you will be next. You will be in court and your home taken just as quick as they take the food from them. There is no such thing as Fairness to all humans as God does say His will will do and can do. The saved people do know what God has said in the Psalm 10:3-4. God’s people know all nations are but men Psalm 9:19-20. Who are they in the eyes of God? Psalm 9:12-13. Being kind to the needy is even equated with honoring God, while oppressing the poor shows hatred for our Maker. How can you now see and hear the cries of the poor in this world, what gives you the power to help?
Answer: It's because you are now all new! What has this Jesus done to You? He has made you new. This Jesus has Given Himself for You. He has made you more than what you were. He has made you more than what you have done in your past. He has made you more than what others may have done to you. He has made it so you can walk in love, and have love in you.
He has made you His. You are now running over with Mercy. This love for others is now in them, the saved of God! Proverbs 31:8-9 What will the saved people of God do for the poor of this world? Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. The saved can love where they once could not. They can now take love to where hate is. When the world sees no good cause , they see their brother or sister. When the world's people see someone who they think is getting what's coming to them, the saved see hurt and need. The saved do not see the food stamps as a sin .
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. In the church today, it seems that God’s concern for the poor is very strong and is not overlooked. We give necessary attention to spiritual matters, the Elders are all about seeking those in need but often run completely short in the things for the physical, the needs of the poor are Great in our day.. A reading of the Proverbs, and the Old , and New Testament will clearly show that God exhorts His people to actively care for the poor while admonishing any mistreatment of – or indifference toward – the needy. Social Concern in this world.
His eyes are on us as the saved people of this world, we are His and He does have us looking for the needed. If the saved people see someone hurt it’s as if they hurt. Throughout God’s Bible – which are his nature-revealing instructions for holy living – we see the care, provision and redemption of the poor and those who this world throws away. Exodus 22:21-23 Leviticus 23:22 Leviticus 25:39-43 Deuteronomy 15:7-11 In God’s word We see God command His people to treat the poor and weak fairly, with honor, and with a given hand to make provisions for them, and allow them to be released from the pain of hunger . He also commands His people to give generously, not begrudgingly. They do and will.
Proverbs: Has a lot to say about this! And the saved people of God just say I hear Lord and I obey! Proverbs – God’s declaration for wise and skillful living in this world , is we are to care for our own as well as for others. – He repeatedly gives us instructions on how to respond to the reality of God’s concern for the poor and needy. Proverbs 14:21 Proverbs 14:31 Proverbs 28:27 Proverbs 31:8-9 Proverbs 19:17 Proverbs 22:9 Proverbs 21:13 Proverbs 22:22-23 Proverbs 29:7 Proverbs 17:5 Have you ever notice the practices that are condemned in Proverbs: oppressing the poor, mocking the poor, gloating over disaster, shutting our ears to the cry of the poor, exploiting the poor, crushing the needy in court, closing our eyes to the poor, and not being concerned about justice for the poor. Ignoring the poor shows just as much contempt for God as actively oppressing the poor. And then took a look at the time we live in. Can you see it?
Now what does God call the practices that are blessed by the Lord: being kind to the needy, lending to the poor, being generous, sharing food with the poor, giving to the poor, caring about justice for the poor, speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves, judging fairly, and defending the rights of the poor and needy. Being kind to the needy is even equated with honoring God, while oppressing the poor shows hatred for our Maker. We see God speak through the prophets to rebuke Israel for their disobedience, including oppression of the poor and lack of and the doing away with a concern for true justice. Isaiah 10:1-3 Malachi 3:5 In Isaiah 58:6-7, the Lord deplores those who claim to be religious yet do not “loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, set the oppressed free and break every yoke.”
The kind of religion that God honors is “to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter” and “when you see the naked, to clothe him.” Poor and the Concern in the New Testament times: The New Testament echoes God’s heart for the poor and seeks that we saw, displayed throughout the Old Testament. James 1:27. Galatians 2:10. Acts 6:1-6.
This He did not change under the New Covenant . Do you care? The early church modeled social concern. In Acts 6, seven godly men were designated by the leaders of the church to focus their attention on caring for the widows. Brothers and Sisters , the sick people that have a difficult time or are unable to care for themselves.) are in the eyes of God and He lets His people see them as well. In 1 Timothy 5, Paul gives specific instruction to the body of Christ on how to care for widows. Also, James acknowledges our tendency, even as believers, to favor the rich and ignore the poor. He also in 1 Timothy 5:7-8 shows the new covenant people how God says they are to take care of their own homes first, it is not the Pastor or Church who comes first under the all Christian all New Covenant but the saved persons home is to be first. and see to it that they do not give to the rich, but take care of the poor. This is the
New Covenant way.
He commands believers not to show favoritism because God has not “chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him.” Quoting Jesus and the Old Testament, James says that to keep the royal law is to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Who is Your Neighbor? It’s all about love to someone else. An expert of the law asked Jesus this exact question in Luke 10:29. Jesus answered the man with the story of the Good Samaritan. In this story, Jesus teaches that His followers must be a neighbor. They must ask themselves, “Who can I be a neighbor to,” rather than, “Who exactly do I have to love and who can I not love?” Jesus was teaching that a person should be a neighbor to everyone in need.
The ultimate neighbor was Jesus, whose compassion exposed the Jewish religious leaders’ lack of concern for those who were perishing. Jesus wrapped up His teaching with the command that His followers were to live like the true neighbor from the passage, showing mercy to those in need.
We are not showing Mercy if we make someone pay for the food we give. We are not showing Mercy if the person has to hear us preach to them just to get a sandwich . It’s not Mercy if we have to know what happened to the money they had before. It’s not Mercy if we are trying to make them repent. It’s not Mercy if we want someone to look up to us for our good deed. We were not told to have tuft love to the needed, and poor it would not be Mercy if we did.. Mercy going out of us is Concern going to. Hopefully, the theological framework provided in the previous section has helped to build conviction in our hearts concerning God’s desire for the Church people who are saved, to care for the poor and needed. Given the Biblical support surrounding this aspect of God’s human time of the kingdom for the saved. What keeps the saved from helping the poor in this world?
The devil talks people into Ignorance. When we learn what the Scriptures say about caring for “social” issues in life. We will do just that, but we must not have the evil do our thinking for us.. Poor Theology. Of where if one is poor it is a Godly thing. Platonic thought has crept into Christianity. Many of us were taught that the soul is all that matters and we should be indifferent toward the physical realm. While the believer is exhorted to live for eternal purposes and not just temporal ones, the body and its needs are never passed off as second rate or something to be ignored. God only says be Poor in Heart, God does not condemn us having wealth and our needs .
The poor should be welcome to church just as the rich are . Tithing was Food under the Old Covenant and the fake saw is as money under the New Covenant so if one has no money one is out. The New Covenant church has no tithing it was to just take up an offering. Sin. is a choice and the devil will help you make this choice. Our tendencies towards selfishness and laziness are already in the flesh and Evil will use this on us. He tells us that it is just easier to ignore social issues. Such things as that bunch has everything, and does not have to work. He knows You are looked on from heaven and He wants to shame you.
What does He want you and I to do? Have the sin to forget the poor, thinking that we cannot do anything about their poverty or we convince ourselves that they are not our problem. How to put the devil on the run? Are we showing favoritism by avoiding poor people or low-income neighborhoods? Are you clinging to comfort or justifying your inaction? Often, the reason we do not care for the poor is because we do not know the poor. Are you putting yourself in a place where you can invest in relationships and truly love your neighbor as yourself? So if we step up, and do , the devil is put out of your thinking.
“The Bible is not Only Concerned With the Spiritually Poor.” What does this mean?
They are saying we are always in need of Him. Poverty is the word need : it is a need for God, and need in Humans. As Food and the other necessaries. The Bible encourages spiritual poverty, because it leads us to understand our spiritual need for Christ’s Lordship. Further, the Scriptures we have used in this document support the theological framework of caring for the physically poor. God is out for quick fixes of food and shelter now, as well as out for a long time of doing that is we may not be able to fix it, just help those in need. But we are not to forget them. Psalm 9:17-18 “Do the Poor Really Experience Injustice and Exploitation?”
The poor will always be here and there are many things that cause poor people. Here are just a few things the rich do! Look around! Where are landfills placed? How is zoning done? Do the poor who live near you have opportunities for redemption or are they stuck in cycles of poverty? What government policies are keeping the poor in poverty, rather than helping them out of it? Are certain ethnic or other types of groups seemingly stuck in the cycle of poverty? If efforts are being made towards serving the poor near you, are they helping to alleviate poverty, because it cannot be done. (empowering individuals is great ) but there should be some quick fixes to the problem of poverty the need for food is now not some other time.
The Bible is clear that the church is to advocate for the poor and those in need in the world, caring for their needs and pursuing justice on their behalf. We are not to neglect spiritual needs for social ones, nor social needs for those that are spiritual. The two areas of need are not in opposition. On the contrary, Christ demonstrated care for the whole person, body and spirit. As His followers, we must demonstrate the same, not allowing bad theology, laziness and poor excuses to keep us from addressing the needs of our communities. Do you have relationships with those who come from a background of poverty?
If so, how are you involved with them, are you looking to see if a need is there? Do you actively seek to understand the plight of the poor, and do you understand that their children get in need of food no matter what Mom and Dad do? Do you give generously?
Are you mindful of whether or not your generosity is helping or hurting? No such thing as God sending them hurt, so just do it. Will you read this in the Bible? Will you let the devil take you into putting down the Poor, or will you read this and Believe? James 1:27 Proverbs 31:8-9 Matthew 25:34-40 James 2:5 Proverbs 20:13, 21:17, 23:20-21.
Free Will is Free Choice! Free will is God’s way for the human to salvation of the body and the soul. He sets before us life or death, and forever as to where we spend it as our own choice. www.oldchurchofGodofthenewcovant.com From the Elder: If you accept free will, then you have to also accept that others have the right to 'choose' not to accept free will, is the lack of Liberty, as a valid concept. Man was made to have God in their living on this earth, Adam had God daily in His life, but Adam had a choice to obey, and He did not.
Men have always wanted to have God their way, and have taken the advantage of the fact that Humans were made to need God. This would be liberty, to a person in that that person has to make the choice to receive God, and Do what God calls His creed of Doctrine, the Doctrine is what God wills and what He requards of all humans who come to Him.. What is this Obedience? Is it not what He asks of us?
Men have always got in the way of what God is doing , this liberty God gives to all humans makes them hate, makes them want power like it gives God, they do seek to place themselves over it and police it where they can. Either way, the truth is that neither side will be able to convince the other, since it is all subjective to men saying what they can receive Jesus as the way to salvation their way or some other way..
One of the way that men seek to remove God from the Jesus as the way to salvation is they go door to door , nation to nation , they say they came to witness to you about God when God has said Jesus is the only witness we will ever need, as to salvation and is the only faithful witness Rev. 1:5- should we witness ? read this Man has always had that job in the way they live and speak- because sometimes we do have to use words in our witnessing Act 1:8 Rom. 10:11-Matt. 28:19-20 Acts 5:32-Acts 13:31- John 15:27 but they come and say look at what we are and this is God , but what did God say about who would know Him under the all Christ all Christian all new covenant Jer. 31:31-Heb . 8:1-13 but look at Heb, 8: 10-11 God has not sent a person out to tell you about Him it is already in you because He says it is so, what any person is to teach is Jesus as the way and Jesus alive this is the Gospel, Him already come and His as the savior, His as what God say we are to come to Him- John 3:16. God’s free will to humans is the free choice to obey or not , but if humans want to be with God forever it is us humans in the flesh , making the choice to obey Him, and He God gave us all that choice..
The Old Church of God of the New Covenant * 1 Cor. 1:2- Gal. 1:13. Jer. 31:31- Heb. 8:1-13 has always preached and does teach this as what God is saying all of the Human Race must do and that it is to us all, to receive this Gift from Him that replacement for the sins, that Sunday-Easter Christmas Jesus,- Luke 2:1-33. Romans 9:10-21- as to Free will -Choice — perhaps the most discussed passage on this crucial issue. If you have never read that text, or it’s been a while since you have, I’d encourage you to go read it carefully. As we think about predestination and free will, I believe we can reconcile the two into what God says they are. If we hold to specific definitions. If we define predestination as God’s sovereign choice — that Jesus is the only way for humans to live with Him in everlasting life ., , but not based on anything he sees in humans but what He forgives in them when they repent. after they do as He has ask of them and that they do make the free choice to John 3:16 first and let the Holy Ghost take them on to Him , such as He, the Holy Ghost , will seek them to Romans 10:9-13 - we should just read (Rom. 9:11-12), and free will as people choosing what they most want to choose, then no contradictions exist. It is not always black and white there is always a gray area if we don’t rightly divide the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15..
Men like to put things where they give them power not where God put them. If some men were going to Heaven anyway, why would God need to send them a savior , they were already saved as they say, but we do read that all have sins., all are in need of a savior. From a religious point of view, there are many different variables that must be taken into account . What are the Chosen one’s ? Are they already saved, we see that they are not already saved but chosen before time begins for a job .
Humans get the wrong thinking, from men who want to be the big Roosters over salvation , on what Choice of free will is. They like to police humans. They always put God’s word and other things into something they want . So what did they want ? The answer is they want to be better than others, a us and them world , where they are the only one’s and the only way to be saved is through them , so to be the only way is the end game.
They are holy but you are not. In the Free will and free Choice they forget that God says He would do all of the calling of His Clergy under the All Christian all New Covenant time , and give liberty to all others so men would not have the power over it, and that no man would be borned to the clergy so God would help and choose who, and He did before time began for the human Race. The New Covenant way for the Clergy would be as Jer. 3:15-16-Romans 10: 14-16 and this is the chosen ones in the bible*==== And He would make the choice of who is the savior. But to receive this as God’s will one would have to say my college, or school is my way, and not what God says, He would have for the salvation of any Human that makes the free choice to receive Jesus through what God has given this world as the only way to begin, John 3:16. - then the person is taken to Romans 10:9-13. And after we repent and ForgivenGod lets us know He forgave us through what is called Sanctification, This is where the person doen know for sure that God forgives them of the sins they did in the past so God set them aside and then we should be baptized in water. So what would be over any clergy, that God would call up?** Jer. 3:15-16 says they would be after God’s Heart., and no clergy as boss over salvation no police over what God is doing on earth in Humans, time under that New Covenant they would already have a Savior and Lord and His blood was the way. There would be no such thing as just putting your hand on the TV and sending us seed money, Buy the Clergy's next book, more money for those in another country, God’s way of 1 Timothy 5:7-8 would be where money would begin in the new Covenant home. This would change all things.
Old Church of God of the New Covenant Doctrine of Creed from the Bible for those who God calls the Chosen one’s !!!!!!! It is true that man's salvation is determined in Jesus who is that Gift Luke 2:1-44, for the sins of this world from Adam up until us and that when we John 3:16 we will receive forgiveness for what we have sinned in. We are already redeemed from the past sin of Adam, all Humans have been, and are, affected by God because He so loved the world , that He Jesus is the only way to heaven for several reasons. Jesus was “chosen by God” to be the Savior (1 Peter 2:4). Jesus is the only One to have come down from heaven and returned there (John 3:13). He is the only person to have lived a perfect human life (Hebrews 4:15). He is the only sacrifice for sin (1 John 2:2; Hebrews 10:26). God made the change of the covenants Heb. 8:1-13 -Jer. 31:31. And that this Jesus is the only way. The chosen one are those He has made the choice to be the clergy. (Romans 8:29; 1 Peter 1:2). God chose to give more to the saved, that He would call as His clergy, and called them His elect before the foundation of the world ( Note) ----*** This does not say God let them away with sins, and that they could not sin, or was above sin but that He made the choice on who He would have as the clergy and keep as the clergy, and they could be taken away from God because sin, in them such as a clergy of God cannot have more than one living mate. This is sin and sin is a bad choice man makes . What is this Clergy the God chose before our time as humans? Old Church of God of the New Covenant :
Doctrine : Ministry Clergy : the Doctrine of Creed from God to the Humans in the clergy. The office of the ministry under the New Covenant way was instituted by Jesus Christ Himself when He called the twelve apostles (Mt. 10:1-4; Mk 3:13-19; Lk. 6:12-16) and subsequently extended their mission to the close of the age (Mt. 28:16-20; Lk. 24:44-49; Jn 20:19-23), for which reason it is called “holy”. And the close of having Apostles on Earth . Just as the apostle, “the sent one”, was to be received and heard as the One who sent him (Mt. 10:40-42; Lk. 10:16), so also the men who have been ordained into the apostolic set up office of the holy ministry continue to represent Christ in their preaching, teaching, and administering the sacraments and the Creeds of Doctrine that is God’s will . Although the minister is necessarily a sinner like his flock, always clinging to the grace of God with humble penitence and a firm faith in Christ’s forgiveness (Rom. 7:14-25; I Tim. 1:15-16), he/she is nevertheless to “hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience” (I Tim. 3:9; cf. Acts 24:16; II Tim. 1:3). And with clean hands and preach Jesus as Christ the savior. And Him as the way.
The office of the called ministry is a distinct calling but never to be a vocation in the Church, under the all Christian all New Covenant where clergy are not under the tithe as it way under the old covenant , for which reason Holy Scripture lays down clear and necessary qualifications to be met by anyone who desires this office (I Tim. 3:1-7; Tit. 1:5-9); while some of these qualifications are simply what is expected of any Christian, they express additionally the unique requirements of one who would hold public office of the clergy in the Church. In addition to having the requisite skills (where God gives to the called “apt to teach”), the pastor is to be “above reproach” (I Tim. 3:2; Tit. 1:6, 9); he/she is required to uphold a high standard of behaviour in conformity to God’s Law, that has been placed in the saved person's heart. Heb. 8:1-13-Jer. 31;31. since his hearers are to imitate his deeds as well as listen to his words (I Cor. 4:16; 11:1; I Thess. 1:6; Heb. 13:7; I Pet. 5:3), and his moral failure can never be a purely private matter (II Cor. 6:3; I Tim. 3:7; 4:11-16; II Tim. 2:20-26; 4:10-11; Tit. 2:7-8). The saved people are to keep the clergy clean, and God lets this be done with them not given and funds to that church who will not seek a clean clergy. If you take away the money from the bad clergy they will go somewhere else.
In St Paul’s teaching on the qualifications for the pastoral office, marriage and family life hold a prominent and distinctive place (I Tim. 3:2, 4-5, 12; Tit. 1:6). Since the minister stands in to teach and preach of of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom, the minister’s relationship to the Church, Christ’s Bride, is like that of a husband to a wife; the minister is to love and sacrifice himself for his church people , while the church members are to be subordinate to him as to Christ Himself (Heb. 13:17). In that if He stays with Jesus as the Lord, While the minister is not literally the Bridegroom, in his office he acts as “friend of the bridegroom (best man)” (II Cor. 11:2; Jn 3:29) or wedding attendant (Mt. 25:1-13) in leading the Bride to Christ. In the very word of the bible just as Paul says in Romans 10: 14-16 How would you know something? The minister must be “husband of one wife” (I Tim. 3:2; Tit. 1:6) because Christ is husband of one wife; in his faithful marriage the minister proclaims the Gospel to his flock by disclosing the mystery of marriage in both words and deeds. God did see that men if one can do anything they want the other will as well.
Though God’s people have been unfaithful to God, “committing adultery” with other gods and wandering from Him (Hosea 1–4; Ezekiel 23; Jeremiah 3), God Himself is never unfaithful “Husband of One Wife”: Theses on Clergy Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage (Deut. 7:9; I Cor. 1:9; II Tim. 2:13); the minister who represents Christ is correspondingly obligated to portray the faithfulness of God (Mt. 24:45; I Cor. 4:2; II Cor. 1:18; Col. 1:7). The apostolic mandate that a minister or Clergy who makes the choice to be married , must be “husband - of one wife” (I Tim. 3:2; Tit. 1:6) expresses this iconic faithfulness in the crucible of marriage and family (even as the OT priests were forbidden to marry a divorced woman, “for the priest is holy to his God”; Lev. 21:7, 14); by holding up faithful marriage as a norm, this phrase excludes polygamists, homosexuals, and habitual fornicators from holding the clergy office of the ministry;
This does not say a human who is a Eunuch can’t be a Clergy, As Acts 8:14-40 tells us that are not broken or a person who can’t come to God or be in the clergy. it does not mean that a minister must be married (i.e. that a single man is excluded); as Paul was. it does not exclude from office a minister whose wife has been taken home by the Lord through death (. a widower); it does not prohibit a widowed minister from remarrying (though some early church fathers considered this unwise); and. it does merely mean that a minister be faithful to his current wife, even though unfaithfulness has come in their marriage , but the Pastor is to one’s wife certainly and if not they are disqualified as a person in the clergy and should be stopped from holding the office. They can give up that job of clergy and just be the saved , but not the clergy. God has His ways and they are no brainer ways, He just says as to what He will Have and in the clergy He will have them His way.
Humans who have had many marriages and are married again can be forgiven and can be saved, can live the way of Jesus, the New Covenant way and Repent of any sins and start again as lone as they are in the flesh and blood body. And can leave this world saved, all they have to do is repent just like they do for any sin. ****** But you cannot be the clergy !****** From the time humans were made, they were always flesh and blood and there would be no such thing as Marriage in Heaven it is now as we are in the human bodies that this is for. But God does have rules for this human to human purposes. ********** NOTE,********** **>>>> Sin is Sin in anything the humans do!!! Marriage is no different, there is sin in it just as all other things, what the rules are from God is not always what mankind has done, mankind should have stayed in the garden but they did not because of sins, so is it in marriage. God is in everything that humans do.
He has already said what right and wrong is, we just make the choice of will we do it or not will we obey or not? The made humans are here to get ready for the born into heaven work , that is offered to all of the Human Race , salvation in a complete state can be had. GEN 2:23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." Gen. 2:24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. DEU 24:5 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married. MAL 2:14 You ask, "Why?"
It is because the LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. When a man looks at someone He has sinned in His heart against his wife. Mal. 2:15 Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. And when you do God calls it sin just as He does all other sins. How can this be? MAT 22:29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. In the Body as humans only was the purpose of God for Marriage ? Matt. 22:30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. MAR 10:6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' Mar. 10:7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, Mar. 10:8 and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Mar. 10:9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." No clergy has been given the power to take apart what God has joined , those who do so are in sin themselves .
This is a powerful saying from God to humans. Mar 10:10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. Mar. 10:11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. The savior and Lord says this , Humans have no say in what God calls sin, so if one has sin in this way before death you can repent, and be forgiven, but you can’t go back and change what you have done just as all sins can’t be undone, we only can receive what God has for sin and that is us Repent for what we have done, Ezeh. 18:1-32 just what God has given this world where we are just humans. God’s rules say that you can’t be the clergy, but you can have His salvation. Mar. 10:12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits Adultery." Jesus' blood lets us repent of this just as all sins . ROM 7:1 Do you not know, brothers--for I am speaking to men who know the law--that the law has authority over a man only as long as he lives? This is so because they are now in the hearts of all Humans under the New Covenant Jer. 31:31 Heb. 8:1-13 Rom. 7:2 For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. Rom. 7:3
So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, She is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man. So what Has God given for any sin ? We Repent and He forgives. What do we learn from the Bible is what God has for us now! This is God doing what Only He can and will do. Through Bathsheba’s story, we discover that God can bring good out of the ashes of sin. Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, was born into this world through the bloodline of Bathsheba and King David. When we turn to God, he forgives sin. Even in the worst possible situations, God is able to bring about a good outcome.
Do you feel caught in a web of sin? Keep your eyes on God and he will redeem your situation. Bathsheba's story is found in 2 Samuel 11:1-3, 12:24; 1 Kings 1:11-31, 2:13-19; 1 Chronicles 3:5; and Psalm 51:1. It is okay if one does not marry it, not a sin . But if you need a mate as a human you should. Again God gives us the choice of free will. 1Cor. 7:1 Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry. 1 Cor. 7:2 But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. 1 Cor.7: 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. God is saying this is a way out, a way to stop looking at others, because it is a sin . 1 Cor. 7:4 The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In The same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. 1 Cor. 7:5 Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. The person who is always looking has no self control. But Paul is telling all who we hear this is not a command but what will get you out and keep you from this sin. 1 Cor 7:6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. Not all men or women are lookers, some have greater power over the self. 1Cor. 7: 7 I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that. 1 Cor. 7:8 Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. 1 Cor. 7:9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. This will end up in sin. 1 Cor. 7: 10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.
This was God’s will . 1 Cor. 7:11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. God has this rule and did not give men the power over it. So says Paul. But sometimes things happen and we have no power over them as humans. 1 Cor. 7:12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 1 Cor. 7:13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. Again God’s rules not mans. 1Cor. 7:14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. When we see John 3:16 under the New Covenant we are told we must believe in Jesus the choice of God for the salvation of all who-so-ever and that change does come with rules . And when we follow the rules of God we are sometimes set free from what should have been and must move on in that freedom. God has sent a peace to the born again .
Sometimes the saved person has to seek that peace! 1 Cor. 7:15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. We should always ask this when making this choice ? 1 Cor. 7: 16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? 1 Cor.7:17 Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches. 2Cor. 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 1TI 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. HEB 13:4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. So is the human Marriages supposed to be as the scripture says? God’s rules for the Clergy are very clear! The minister whose earthly marriage comes to an end through divorce, and they take a new honey is no longer “husband of one wife” and therefore no longer fulfils the qualifications laid down by St Paul for the holy clergy office; Paul adds no qualifiers about innocence or guilt in divorce, but simply requires the minister’s marriage to be intact so that he /she is “above reproach''.
The minister who causes or suffers the destruction of his marriage through divorce has an obligation to lay down his office voluntarily for the good of the church; failing this, his ecclesiastical supervisor, the people of the church must remove him from office. While the church may contemplate the possibility that this apostolic mandate is not violated when a minister has been abandoned by his wife ( I Cor. 7:15), remarriage is by definition contrary to it; the man who remarries not only closes the door on reconciliation with his God Given wife, but also disrupts the iconic nature of his marriage as a proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who is devoted to one Bride alone. And any man you hear say He loves ladies is already in sin and wrong. While a divorced or divorced-and-remarried man does not possess the qualifications laid down by Holy Scripture for holding the vocation of an apostolic minister, his place in the Body of Christ as a child of the Heavenly Father is a different matter, anyone who sins can repent but the price of the clergy in now for the clergy.. The minister’s ecclesiastical supervisor, who is the church people , has a God-given responsibility to provide pastoral care to him during times of marital breakdown, leading him by the wise application of Law and Gospel to remain within or return to the Lord’s flock, if they have fallen in sins.. Disqualification from office is not the same thing as excommunication; as with any Christian, the former minister who is penitent may be kept in or restored So as we move on who are the Chosen ones of God in the bible? (Ephesians 1:4), and those elect people are consistently referred to as the "chosen" of God (Romans 8:33, 11:5; Ephesians 1:11; Colossians 3:12; 1 Thessalonians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:2, 2:9).
The word "elect" is also used continually throughout Scripture (Matthew 24:22, 31; Mark 13:20, 27; Romans 11:7; 1 Timothy 5:21; 2 Timothy 2:10; Titus 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1). In this we all who are saved and are ready to and want to go all of the way with God to this end of Humans in the flesh are called His elect, as well. The Bible repeatedly confirms that clergy believers are both predestined, as a person who God has His eyes on , and if they receive and see and seek after the very heart of God, to be His clergy, and all of those who God has forgiven, are then called His elect, because we all are then who He says we are , not what those who call them out say they are . When the Humans come to the choice of Heaven that Jesus of John 3:16 He makes you more than what you were, more than what you come from, more than what you would be if you let one of the police over salvation bring you to. He made all who come More than what you were.
This is that born again , that better way covenant through Jesus . He also called the clergy, they are not made in a college or church school. (Romans 8:29-30; Ephesians 1:5, 11) and elected (Romans 9:11, 11:28; Men can’t make a Clergy of God , because God keeps that for Himself . His People His way. Understanding the truth of God’s word and who we are in Him lets us stand***2 Peter 1:10) to the day of completed salvation. The truth does set us free. The way to begin is the way God purpose us to come to Him 3:15-16-Romans 10: 14-16 and this is the way to be the chosen ones in the bible*====Scripture is clear and pure truth. But Can we see God as God is? Yes when we are Borne again! And see Jesus as the only way in the bible. Yes when we Come to Him as we are and let His change us into what He has for us! Jesus is the Only Way – The True Concept of Salvation How can Christians say that Jesus is the only way to God? So many see this as a problem, and do have this question, is that it is based on a concept of salvation by works. No it is doing what God seeks for the salvation of the Human Race . But John 3:16 is not us at work at all it is the human doing what God says He will receive as the way to Him. In other words, the person asking it still believes that people can get to heaven by being good enough, but this way God through Jesus makes us Good enough . All of the Human Race has already been Redeemed for the sins of the first Adam up until us. “Yes” we can in the word of God, understand who He is , He does show us who He is, and shows us how to Get to Him, His people His way..
We can see this Jesus as the predesting way for this world in His word! A basic biblical description of God's sovereignty is His kingship, His rule, and the fact that He has the final authority in everything. Sovereignty means that from the highest king to the smallest atom, everything bows, ultimately, to His power (Romans 14:11, 11:36). Free will, as regards the choice we make to accept or reject salvation, is not explicitly mentioned in the Bible, but the phrase "free will" is popularly used to describe the concept of man's ability to make choices as he goes through his life and his responsibility to make the right choices. And If we don’t come His way then He has a place for all who seek some other way it is called Hell, Hell is a place, Hell is real, Hell Fire is real, “Wow” some will come to your door with a religion that is from the devil , a look alike as to what God is, a Flavor of Jesus but a fake one, and are out to save you, they say, and ask a human question of you so as to puff up the flesh in you and that question is how can a human burn in hell forever ? Already if you understand the God and Jesus of the Scriptures you know that they have the power to speak to fire and it will obey, it will burn forever, if they say to it do this it will be so. Did not God in the beginning speak and there was light? Gen. 1:1 but this devil person is in front of you with another God
But this same God of the Bible has the power to say to the dead Get up and walk around and the dead will. When someone comes to your door with a different Jesus just say no I don’t want what you are selling. This is your free will, it is your freedom in this country, and We can make a choice before Heaven. Liberty is alive and well in Jesus and where He is. Predestination and Free Will. It’s the biggest Christian debate out there, and it’s not even close in most cases to what God has said it is. Believers have debated this issue for centuries, and yet the end of the debate appears nowhere in sight. Christians have been asking, “How can we reconcile predestination with human free will, we can’t if it is man's word, and work But God has us and He can. But with Jesus as the predestination way for Humans to come to God under the all Christian all New Covenant we can read in His word where this is so.- John 3:16 Way!! This is what the big Rooster clergy are afraid of in God’s word, because it takes them out of the police beastness of power over this world , and the free ride they get from it. This is Free choice to serve God and to come to God His way! 1 Timothy 2:5-6 For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone.
This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. 1 John 2:23 Anyone who denies the Son doesn’t have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 5:10-12 All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don’t believe what God has testified about his Son. And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. John 5:23 So that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father who sent him. Ephesians 4:4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. Matthew 11:27 “My Father has entrusted everything to me.
No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Acts 4:12 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved (JESUS).” John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me. Romans 3:24 Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever. Luke 21:36 Keep alert at all times.
And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.” 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power. When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people—praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him. Hebrews 5:8-9 Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him.
What would God do in that New Covenant He would send to this world? Deuteronomy 18:15 Moses continued, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. Deuteronomy 18:18-19 I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him. I will personally deal with anyone who will not listen to the messages the prophet proclaims on my behalf. John 1:11-12 He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 3:16-18 Jesus says, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son." John 5:21-22 For just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants. In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, John 6:35 Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again.
Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:47-48 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life. Yes, I am the bread of life! John 6:50-51 Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.” John 6:53-58 So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. I live because of the living Father who sent me; in the same way, anyone who feeds on me will live because of me. I am the true bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will not die as your ancestors did (even though they ate the manna) but will live forever.” John 8:51 I tell you the truth, anyone who obeys my teaching will never die!” John 10:9 Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. John 10:27-28 Jesus says, My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, John 11:25-26 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die.
Do you believe this, Martha?” John 12:48 Jesus says, But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken. Acts 2:36 “So let everyone in Israel know for certain that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, to be both Lord and Messiah!” Acts 16:30-33 Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.” And they shared the word of the Lord with him and with all who lived in his household. Even at that hour of the night, the jailer cared for them and washed their wounds. Then he and everyone in his household were immediately baptized. Mark 16:16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. Romans 5:21 So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 4:4-6 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all.
Romans 8:2 And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Romans 8:11 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 10:9-11 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Philippians 2:10-11 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Revelation 1:18 I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. Revelation 14:12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus. Revelation 1:5-6 ..and from Jesus Christ. He is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the dead, and the ruler of all the kings of the world. All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us. He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. 2 John 1:9 Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son. 1 John 1:7 But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. Hebrews 7:25
Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 9:11-12 So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world. With his own blood—not the blood of goats and calves—he entered the Most Holy Place once for all time and secured our redemption forever. Hebrews 9:14-15 Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. That is why he is the one who mediates a new covenant between God and people, so that all who are called can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them.
For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant. Hebrews 9:24-28 For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with human hands, which was only a copy of the true one in heaven. He entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our behalf. And he did not enter heaven to offer himself again and again, like the high priest here on earth who enters the Most Holy Place year after year with the blood of an animal. If that had been necessary, Christ would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But now, once for all time, he has appeared at the end of the age to remove sin by his own death as a sacrifice. And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him. 1 John 2:1-2 My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world. Mark 12:10-11 Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures? ‘The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see.’ Referring to determinism and free will as the human choice. Any given person may show different beliefs are human understanding, whether it is monotheism, polytheism, atheism, or agnosticism. Beyond this if a person believes in God, each person has different interpretations such as:
Who is God? What is God about? What is His role in humanity? All of this up until The time before the Rapture where God will call all of His saved People who John 3:16 to Him back to Him Rev. 18:1-4 His people His way. Men want you to be stupited so they can get between you and salvation, all of it because a confused person will let them be the police over their life, and their salvation , and they get paid very well for this, in human life , now is what they are after. Your soul is like nothing to them . Money will give them a good life and a colleague or two to help with that school that big job of overseeing you and yours. That next big Jet Plane trip is the end game. But predestination language is all over the Bible , and what it is . So much so that all Christians have to grapple with it in them and their saying. Here’s one specific text: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace. — Ephesians 1:3-6 ( You do see as to what He is saying it is in Jesus not because of us in us. Or us already better than someone else. Jesus is that way He Per. ordained.
We all have different responses to these questions and these responses will determine whether we believe in determinism as free will. What goes wrong is that person say we could not restore the self and that we were depraved but Jesus redeemed us the humans of the sins of the world Luke 2:1-44 What is us depraved in God’s eyes it is us unable to get back to God, it did not last long as time would tell because the Jews the Hebrews had a way given under the Old Covenant it was them keeping Feast days Sabbath days, Animals blood as the way then up until the New Way that is the New Covenant way of Jesus. Man was no longer depraved when the blood of Jesus was given for the world. That work is already done. Free will is granted to every man. If he desires to incline towards the good way and be righteous, through forgiveness from God , he has the power to do so; and if he desires to incline towards the unrighteous we can make the choice to do that. The biblical ground for free will lies in the fall into sin by Adam and Eve that occurred in their "willfully chosen" disobedience to God. "Freedom" and "free will" can be treated as one, and be a wicked man, he also has the power to do so Regarding free will: That Humans Choice ! Sin is just a choice !
Sin will and Has taken many from God and Heaven. Our “will” is the function of our choosing. Essentially, how we make choices. How these acts are determined can be looked at either by Determinism or Indeterminism. Free choice of Free will is how God is choosing who will be with Him forever. Sin will not be going back to Heaven. After we John 3;16 and those who will not receive the Christmas Jesus will not Go to Heaven. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit. – 1 Thessalonians 4:7-8 The church is in the People and not just a building. The professing church, or visible church, is the same church , but with one of them lost is composed of both genuine believers and mere professing believers who are still dead in their sins (Ephesians 2:1). On the other hand, the invisible church, or Body of Christ or true Church, is exclusively composed of born again saints who have been sealed by the Holy Spirit through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. They have John 3:16 first and then let the Holy Ghost do the rest. So what did the Holy Ghost do for the John 3:16 person after they came to This Easter Jesus? Do not be deceived, all Christian all New Covenant people .
The mark of a true convert is that their life is no longer representative of these sins. Galatians 5:19 indicates these things are manifest (evident) as a lifestyle for those who are still walking in darkness, i.e. and in those who are not saved. When you do such things you must repent , that is what revival is it returns us to Him and Philippians 2: 10-12. We must work out our salvation now as the time of salvation. “… what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness …?” 2 Peter 3:11. Unfortunately, this is something quite uncommon! How many people are there who really work on being thoroughly saved from everything that so easily ensnares us? Who strives to do that? Who works hard at it? And besides, who fears and trembles at the thought of possibly being too lazy or not being sufficiently interested in this, so that he/she might not reach the goal for that reason? There is a tremendous amount of superficiality and indifference among believers! Most of them are under the power of the spirit of sleep. If there is anything they are striving with at all, it is only with earthly Refers to everything of this earth, as opposed to heavenly things. Example: Earthly treasures/heavenly treasures. The earthly things pass away (are temporal), but the heavenly things are eternal. (Matthew 6:19-21;... things, which is the very opposite of Jesus’ exhortations: “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you …” John 6:27. His ways. You are still in the flesh and can repent . Let’s take a closer look in defining these terms: Work out your salvation here below- What sins did the human have when they came to this Jesus of John 3:16 and let the Holy Ghost take them to repent of? Romans 10:9-13 and what were the repents that would keep a person from Heaven? And what will God not let back in Heaven in any Person? Why do we have to repent? Sin is Sin. Fornicator – one who participates in unlawful sex, which is to say of one who indulges in sexual activity outside of the boundaries of legal marriage. It can also mean giving oneself over to false gods, eg religious idolatry. Referring to sexual acts, these would include premarital or post-marital (divorcees) sex of any form (heterosexual, homosexual, incest, pedophilia), but also to include adultery. Adulterer – one who engages in inappropriate behavior or unlawful sexual activity in violation of legal marriage vows. This does include the pastor who just looks like an adulterer Looking in God’s eyes is a sin. In Matthew 5:27-28, Jesus said,
"You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Does this mean we can't even look at a person we find attractive? Not exactly. It is the lust that God sees. Jesus was criticizing the legalistic habits of the religious leaders of the day. They were great at seeing the "letter of the law," which is what the law literally says, but they did not grasp the "spirit of the law," which is the intent behind the law. When you find someone attractive and then find yourself looking for a bit longer than you normally would, do a check on your heart and your motives. Why are you looking? Are you merely admiring their attractiveness? Or are you imagining them in a sexual manner? Notice Jesus' words in the above verse; He says that to look at a woman with the intent to lust is adultery. A simple glance or reasonable gaze at someone we find attractive is a sin in and of itself, go get you a mate. When we dive into lustful thoughts in our minds is when we have crossed over into sexual sin. Such would be the case for two married individuals engaging in inappropriate conduct, or a single individual violating the boundaries of marriage with a married individual. Idolater – one who worships a false god, or has created a god in their own image (which is to say the “Christian” god they worship in their mind is not the God of the Bible).
This might include worshiping a god from any of the world's religions, worship of a person, or worship of an object, such as money. Worship of a man who is a Pastor. Homosexual – one who engages in homosexual activity, or same-sex intercourse. This would include those in same-sex relationships. One can be celibate and not be in sin. Sodomite – one who offers himself/ Herself/ as a male prostitute to engage in homosexual activity. Thief – one who steals. Forms of thievery would include embezzlement, robbery (violent force), or by non-violent means, such as cheating, downloading illegal music, or shoplifting. The New Covenant saved person is not a thief for not tithing there is no such thing under the new covenant as a priest to keep on earth so no tithing is required . it was only food under the old covenant Lev 27:30-32- Money today under the New Covenant is to begin in the Home first 1 Timothy 5:7-8. Covetous – one who is greedy to gain material wealth, or one who is not content or satisfied with their belongings and envies the possessions of others. Drunkards – one who gets drunk or intoxicated with alcohol. Revilers – one who is a blasphemer or is marked by contemptuous, disrespectful, or disdainful speech. Extortioner – one who blackmails for profit, or unlawfully obtained wealth or information through coercion. The message is clear: those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21).
Yet, the church is so polluted today that sins such as drunkenness and fornication are swept under the rug and widely accepted by the vast majority of professing Christians. The same could be said for the other sins with regards to church acceptance, homosexuality for instance, this is the lost sheep. Lost Sheep Christian living a worldly lifestyle. I want to be very frank, not only because what I am about to say is the truth, but because the hour is urgent. The world is falling apart all the more each day and the signs are, and have always screaming that Christ is returning any moment for His church, who are the humans . Not only that, but you are not promised to live another second, so I want you to give strict attention to my words as if it’s the last time you will ever have the opportunity to hear them. If your lifestyle reflects one of sexual immorality or drunkenness, then you will not inherit the Kingdom of God. To be more clear, you will perish in hell for all of eternity. Forever. If you think 1 second is small in comparison to 1 trillion years, that one second is infinitely greater than 1 trillion years compared to eternity. Though you profess to believe in Christ, though you believe you are saved,. And through Sanctification one does know that God forgave. And if all biblical indicators give evidence you are not (Philippians 3:18-19), and you may wake up one day in hell to your surprise. Perhaps you live with your boyfriend or girlfriend? That in itself gives the appearance of evil, but woe unto you all the more if you are sleeping with them. Maybe you don’t live with your partner, but rather engage in sex whenever it’s convenient. The Bible could not be more clear – anyone who habitually practices sex outside of marriage will suffer the wrath of God for eternity. Perhaps you continue to party at the club scene? Or do you like it low key at the bar or night lounge? Or maybe you revel at the beach or lake party? How about the football or concert tailgates? Or maybe you indulge yourself in the privacy of your own home.
It’s all the same – drunkards will not inherit the Kingdom of God! You can make all the excuses you want. You can justify your sin a million different ways. But God sees what you are doing and He considers you in violation to His holiness. If you partake in these things while professing to be a Christian, you are trampling the blood of Christ under your feet and are using the grace of God as a license to sin. You perhaps think if you do enough good, if you pray enough to say you’re sorry, if you go to church every Sunday, if you pay your tithes – you can somehow balance out your offenses against God. Unfortunately for you, God sees you as an idolater. And unless you repent from this idolatry, you will suffer the wrath of God forever (Romans 2:5). This is what God requires from you, and us all – a broken and contrite heart (Psalm 51:17). He does not want your sacrifices of religiosity or guilt produced from worldly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:10). No, He requires you and us all to be broken and mournful of our sins against Him. He requires you and Us all to forsake it all for Him, never looking back. As long as you continue to hold on to your idol, whether it is sex or alcohol, you cannot be His disciple (Luke 14:33). Do not confuse these words to mean you must clean yourself up before you come to God. You never will because you can never change , on your own. What you must do is come to Him now. Recognize yourself as dead in your sins and apart from the grace of God you will remain there. Throw yourself at the foot of the cross and cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ to save you! This is John 3:16 Trust in Him alone and surrender to His rule and reign over your life. Give up on yourself, give up your control, give up your own will, cast your sin before Him, and give it all, your very life, to the Lord Jesus Christ. He will accept nothing less than unrivaled allegiance. He demands it.
By the grace of God I realized this nearly two years ago. God showed me how desperately I needed Him because I had so violated His holiness through my own idolatry. He showed me in His Word that my life as a professing Christian did not match up to the biblical definition of Christian. He then broke me, and I conceded to His lordship. I acknowledged His rightful authority over my life, and yielded myself to be His servant. they came so they could be called the Children of God ? *** So how do we distinguish between a true believer and a false convert? One simple test can be found in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (which reflects Galatians 5:19-21 and Ephesians 5:3-5). This, combined with viewing God’s Sovereignty as either Specific or General will determine what type of Free Will viewpoint you adhere to. Indeterminism means free acts are not determined. Determinism says that everything has been determined. God’s General Sovereignty says that God is in charge of One of the great discussions regarding human nature is the question of free will — the sum of the choices that we, by ourselves, make each day. It’s a conversation fraught with emotions, misunderstandings, and entangled with personal identity. Reformed Christians, especially, may find the question of free will vexing. This is because they want to be boss over salvation and the money for doing it is a large life for them. Unlike those in other traditions — whose views on free will are simpler if less defensible from all but the most cursory proof-texting — Christians who hold a high view of God’s sovereignty sense that the topic isn’t easy. What is “free will”? Reformer John Calvin (paraphrasing early Christian theologian Origen) wrote that free will is “a faculty of the reason to distinguish between good and evil, [and] a faculty of the will to choose one or the other.”
This is a helpful starting point, and from here it’s possible to explore what Scripture says about the freedom of human will — and the lack thereof — with a good foundation underfoot. Born Free? Is the Question ? we do know that a baby who is dead at birth is good for the salvation of God, now in our day Jesus has redeemed us from what Adam had sin in , so we are now born free from that with us have God’s laws in our hearts Heb. 8:1-13 Jer. 31:31 this is that agreement the new and better way of the new covenant , So we are not now borned in sin of adam because the hold world was given a savior for the sins of the world Luke 2:1-33 One common misconception about the nature of humanity generally — and regarding the freedom of the will specifically — is that people are born into a morally neutral state.
At the same time, we like to believe that we are all children of God, meaning that at birth God loves us all and that we are His. If, later, some have strayed from God’s embrace or abandoned His commands, it is due to their free will, and just as God has said Sin is Sin and a choice, that is because it was you who made that choice , God does not lead us into sin. Likewise, many people (including some Christians) think of themselves as being basically and fundamentally good. Following Calvin’s definition, these assumptions hold that the faculties of reason and will are intact, operative, and reliable — until they are tainted or misdirected. everything but does not control everything. God’s Specific Sovereignty says that He not only has ordained everything, but He also controls everything. So what is He saying ? God has already set the end, and given humans the time of salvation as humans that day is now in the flesh with the choice of Doctrine of His creed for that salvation in obedience .
Compatibilism Free Will is one side of the debate that says that determinism and human free will are compatible. In this side of the debate, our free will is entirely corrupt by our fallen human nature and man cannot choose contrary to his nature. Simply, that Providence and God’s Sovereignty is completely compatible with man's voluntary choices. Our choices are not coerced. The truth is our choice is given to us, and we were never to let any human have power over that choice for us, we will have to answer for the choice we make in this human life. Libertarian Free Will is the other side of the debate, it says that our free will is affection by our fallen human nature, but man still has the ability to choose contrary to his fallen nature. Free will is said to be a concept where secular humanism has completely undermined the biblical teaching on the doctrine of man that is called that by those who would have power over your salvation in that they are the only way and not Jesus as the way.. You will find them saving someone somewhere and they do need the money to do so. Our culture does teach that man is able to make any choice without the effects of sin and says that our will is neither good nor evil, but a neutral one. The image of someone with an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other where the man has to choose which side to listen to, from the vantage of his neutral will. But the Bible clearly teaches that the whole of man was marred by the effects of the fall. Up until Jesus came as the savior , Man’s soul, body, mind and will. Sin has ravaged us completely and utterly because of what we have done not now because of Adam’s sin , because Jesus has come… Humans today should just say to those who want to live in the things God has already abolished. I now belong to Jesus as the savior and I do not want what you are selling. .
Our entire being bears the scars of this sin of Adam profoundly, but because Jesus forgave the sin of the world by His blood , and we are still in that world and only death is still on us because of the sin of Adam. . The Bible repeatedly says that we are in bondage to sin because we make the choice to sin, and all will see this death because of that sin of Adam and it will end after this life . The Bible also teaches that man is culpable for his choices. Man has a responsibility to make wise choices and works with God in the process of sanctification. The sanctification is where we are shown from God that He has forgiven us of what we have done in sin. This to men turn into them given it to others. When we do sin , it is us who is sinning. And us who has to repent each of us Ezek 18:1-32 for our sin now under the new Covenant way. 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. So is it the ---- mind choosing God and His way???. What does the Bible say? God gave people a free will, so that we could make our own choices. God will not make the human do things His way , with free choice we are saying we want what You have for the salvation of any human. And each choice we make is what we want.
Do you want God and His ways or your and the devils? Let’s take a look at a few verses that talk about free will and God’s sovereignty. Free will is given to all Humans and God did make the way through Jesus for the humans to have a choice to be His children- John 3:16 is, Him giving us the free will to make His way Jesus the Gift from Him to the humans. So the question is why would men want to stop this ? When you John 3:16 your way to God you become His and the Holy Ghost is given power over to you and you will see the long tongue liars for what they are , you will have the power to say no, I don’t think so, no, I will not just put my hand on the TV and send you seed money You will see that God has no such thing in His bible as man on earth as the only one, and that God has no such thing in the bible where He says there is a pope , a nun , a Priest to forgive sins, there is no such this as God having a school or colleges , in short you will become His and see what He has for the Human Race and see that all Humans are one Race all coming from one Adam, and one Eve.,
You will see that you must repent for what you do and that you can fall down in sin, that you are still Human. Daily Repent is now your way of life before Him. 1. Romans 7:19 “For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want.” 2. Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of the man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” Man’s Responsibility and Culpability The Fall occurred because man used his free will to listen to Satan. Nevertheless, the way of salvation was made by Jesus Christ with that same free will. This same thing God gave in Jesus to the Humans!! He ordered it to come on the world His way is through this Easter Sunday Christmas Jesus. The all Christian all New Covenant way to repent! This was not always so in the world but that Jesus of the Bible made this happen with His blood . Ezekiel 18:20 “The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.” 6. Matthew 12:37 “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” God foreordained the future way out of sin with the same free will of Choice .
Man can and will be held accountable for his choices if they are ultimately spontaneous and random they are still his or hers. The intent of his/her heart must be the criteria. In heaven, there will be no sin. It is what God is doing on earth He is showing humans how not to sin. when man is finally redeemed from his flesh and its corresponding, it will not be worldly desires, he will no longer want to sin. This was one of the purposes of making humans. We came from the bottom, we were just dirt at one time. This does not mean that God wants anyone to Go to Hell , in fact He wants all humans to be saved but He will not have the sin He had in Lucifer back in Heaven, so each person was given the choice , do you want God and His ways? The commands and invitations of God in scripture seem to imply a moral ability in man to receive spiritual things, incline the heart, and respond positively. It seems unfair that God would blame sinners for their sin if God's will is ultimately irresistible. Or we were already a God as some say. ( Romans 9:19) We are the one who makes the choice to sin and it is our sins that we must get forgiveness for. That God is love seems to imply that God would not predestine anyone to go to hell, and this is true. Free will is that choice to obey God and not man or self. Free Will that Choice does let us reap what you sow. God, who has all power and all wisdom, has given each person a free will, which God respects within His laws. Having a free will does not mean that we can do whatever we want without suffering-- When we choose to obey His commands, God is, in effect, teaching us to think like He thinks. He can’t accomplish that by doing our thinking for us. We must have freedom of choice. Eventually, the way that we choose to live will have the ultimate consequence. We will live one way or the other forever in Heaven or in Hell this is what God has said and what He has ordained for the Human Race. Sin as the choice and forgiveness as the way out . Choosing life is the free will for us to choose the way for ourselves . Just before Israel entered the land that had been promised to them, God instructed Moses to gather the nation to remind them of choices and consequences. In Deuteronomy 29 and 30, Moses summarized the blessings that would result from obedience and the curses that would come about if they disobeyed. Do we not have suffering in this world because of what humans make the choice to do? YES WE DO! T he Bible often mentions suffering. Though this can refer to outward Physical suffering, in the New Covenant it mostly applies to the suffering that occurs when you deny your own sinful lusts and desires and put them… on the world . The consequences, because even though we have a free will, we are still responsible for the choices that we make.
We can choose to sow whatever we want, but we cannot choose what we will reap. “For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” Galatians 6:7-8. Respect the others’ free will Just as God respects our free will, we also must respect the free will of others. Does that mean that we have no responsibility for anyone else? Of course not. Just think of children. If a child is very young, his/her parents cannot simply think, “Well, children have a free will too, so they should only do what they want to do.” Free will and the law of consequences God’s way out was for us to teach our own children, Prov. 22:6 church was not to do this. The Parents were, as God does say in His word . one should not just let childrens Sunday school do this. Men have done this to take over the children from the Parents and do things their way, but the bible is clear on this . Be Aware of where, and who is teaching you! When God created Adam and Eve, one of the first things He did was to give them the opportunity to choose whether they would obey Him. He instructed Adam very clearly to not eat the fruit of a particular tree, under penalty of death (Genesis 2:15). But when the serpent (Satan) gave Eve a different explanation and appealed to her sense of independence and curiosity, she and Adam both chose to ignore God’s command. That one mistake resulted in tragic consequences in their lives and changed the course of history. **Parents are responsible for the upbringing of their children. However, as their children grow older, they must find a healthy balance between the child’s free will and the parents’ responsibility to bring that child up. The church people should help but God did not give them as the boss over children. We have a great deal to learn in this area. For example, as parents, we should not dominate or provoke our children; neither should we attempt to turn them into copies of ourselves. Instead, we should be examples for them, bear them in our hearts, and pray for them! We should maintain contact with them, and help them understand things clearly, instead of burdening them with a lot of rules. 3. Leviticus 18:5 “So you shall keep My statutes and My judgments, by which a man may live if he does them; I am the Lord.” 4. 1 John 3:19-20 “We will know by this that we are of the truth and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things.”
Free will is Given to the Humans, a Choice any person can Make can change the life now and the life to come. Until next time the old church of God Elder: ;;;;;;;Pray to God and not at Him , seek Him for all things and not a man or manmade way.
