Ps.5:4-5 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Repent and be about God's buisness.

All sin. 1 Jn.1:8-9 / Is.64:5-6/ Ps.14:1-3/ Rom.5:12/ (Rom.3:20,23/ Ecc.7:20 / ...)

 

Who does the saving? Christ does. For those who would say, "I have backslid and need to be saved all over again" /"Be carful", "Christ does his part, once he saves you its an insult to him to say you need to be saved again, its like saying he failed not you. Its an insult to the crusifixtion." - A.M.

Jn.10:27/ Jn.6:44/ Jn.15/ Rev.4:11/ Love isn't forced. Much like fishers of men look for those in which The WORD has sparked interest, The LORD is the heart knower. He takes pleasure in those in an ongoing relationship with him. There are good hearted people that bare fruits without much need of encouragement. God likes can do people rather than luke warm (Sower-Lk.11-14/ Rev.3:15-16/ Barren fig-Lk.13:6-9). He gave us The WORD that we may know him and walk in truth and light.

___Walk with God____________

* Heb.5:12-14

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

* Heb.6:1-6 *

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit.

(If it be God's will we shall increase in understanding of the Word once born of The Spirit and become fruitful)

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

(What is "impossible"? (vs.1) To mature in a relationship with God after (vs.6) "falling away" (transgressing The LORD) unless we are moved to embrace repentance, seeing as we have disrespected Elohim. Its all about an ongoing relationship. Christ did his part/ and his sheep are drawn to be fruitful. Jn.6:44/Rev.3:20/ Jn.15:1-8) (Jn.3)

1 Pet.2:1-10

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

 

__Example of maturity___________

Fear (Reverance) is the Beginning! (Ps.111:10 / Prov.1:7;9:10) Fear matures into LOVE:

"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."- 1 Jn.4:18

(Jas.1:14-15/ Heb.2:14/ 2 Pet.2:21)

REPENT: Mk.1:15/ 2 Pet.3:9/ Proverbs 28:13/ Acts.2:21/Joel 2:12-13/ Rom.10:9-10,13/ 1 Jn.4:3/ 2 Jn.1:7/ Ps.32:5/ (Dan.9:4)/ Matt.10:32/ Lk.12:8;24:47 / Rom.14:11/ Rom.15:9/ Phil.2:11/ Jas.5:16/ 1 Jn.1:9/ 1 Jn.4:2-3,15/ Rev.3:5/ Rev.12:11/ Ps.116:4,13 (Ps.38:18/ Ps.41:4/ 1 Kings 21:27-29/ 2 Sam.12:13) 1 Jn.4:15 (Lam.3:40-42/ Is.1:10) Hosea 14:2,4 (Is.59:20) Eze.18:21-23/ John preached Matt.3:1-2, 7-12 (Acts 15:17) (Is. 54:5/ Is.62:2 / Zech.13:9/ Acts15:17) Acts 17:30/ *Is.55:7-9/ Lk.15:7/2 Tim.2:25 (1 Tim.2:4) The wicked that repent shall live and the righteous that turn to iniquity shall perish *Eze.18:21-24 / * Eze.33:7-16 (for such a one thier latter state is worse than their former state Lk.11:26/ 2 Pet.2:20) Acts 17:30

We know that faith without works is dead (Jas.2:17,20,26), and we are saved by Grace through Faith (Eph.2:8). Without the Law there would be no Grace (Grace= unmerited/ undeserving favor). Those who dont recieve God's Grace shall be found guilty according to the Law. We can't Con God. Repentance comes from the heart. Those who do have a relationship with God are in communion with him to the extint that even if they were to transgress the Law of their heart they immediately are moved to repentance. (circumcision of the heart Deut.10:16; 30:6/ Jer.4:4/ Rom.2:25-29/ Act.2:37-38/ Is.1:10/ Hosea 7:14/ Acts17:30) Logic tells us that if one doesn't embrace God's mercy that they shall not recieve it. At the great white throne of judgement all will know Messiah. However not all will embrace God's will.

_______________________

Discipline is good but in our weakness we find strength in Christ (*1 Jn.2:1/ *2 Cor.12:9-10/ Rom.7:14-25/ Gal.3:24-29/ ). We shall be known by our fruits. To show me your faith I would see your works /Lk.8:15. Even the demons believe (Matt.8:28-33/ Jas.2:19/ Matt.7:21) Yet they didnt embrace Repentance (Reverance God).Just claiming the name without the relationship is to be found lacking Matt.7:21-23

2 Jn.1:8-9

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

We arent saved by our works we are Saved by the Atonements provided by G-D in Christ. Its by his righteousness that we fulfill Torah. Those in covenant do Naturally bare fruits. Sin is not Ok. If you sin as a believer you have and advocate with the Father. Simply repent (return).

In responce to "If we are to be as perfect as The Father in heaven is perfect...why aren't we ??" 
 Gives us something to aim for. One has to mature unto perfection (Heb.6 - "move unto perfection"). Jas.1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. Abraham was justified by faith. Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?.... The word for perfect in Matt.5:48 is teleios - From G5056; complete (in various applications of labor, growth, mental and moral character, etc.); neuter (as noun, with G3588) completeness: - of full age, man, perfect.... One who has sinned can still be deemed Perfect following repentance and partaking of atonement. One G-D forgives he doesnt even want us to bring up pass transgressions again. So who are we to say there are not people in covenant and not under the wrath of G-d today? However Salvation its self isnt perfection. After receiving the gift we are called to move on to perfection. To mature and walk in the faith. There remains a remnant unto this day. Weather one is "perfect" or not shall be discerned at the harvest. Until then those in covenant are called to endure and bring forth fruits. 1 Pet.1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ/ 14-17 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear..... In the end if G-d be for you who can be against you? If you were to wake up today and say i have reached perfection, Then What? Rather we are taught to be born again and to live in covenant and strive unto good works. An ongoing relationship of which many are in and who shall say such people arent perfect? Even if they falter we are told we have a mediator in Christ and His people are instantly moved unto repentance if they shall miss the mark. 1 Jn.1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Someone who wakes up and says I have reached perfection can easily fall from the Grace of G-d Gal.5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace./ Such people are only fooling themselves. You have to look at your life as a whole and relative to an ongoing relationship.

"Let It Go" - Arnold Murray

Comment by William H. on January 21, 2016 at 6:29pm

All the atonements (flour, money, blood, love (charity), prayer) point to and where fulfilled in Yeshua:  http://friendsnchrist.ning.com/xn/detail/2993852:Note:42366 This in NO way contradicts the Fact that each must answer for himself at judgement (Jer.31:30, Ex.32:33-34, Deuteronomy 21:22; 24:16, Eze.18:4,20;33:14-15) . Nor does it suggest that The crusifixtion was human sacrifice  http://friendsnchrist.ning.com/video/yeshua-sacrifice-tanach . Throughout the Talmud and other "Jewish" sources (including Tanakh according to the sages) speaks of the (Death of the) righteous atoning for the people (prior link as well as http://friendsnchrist.ning.com/.../our-clean-little... ). Yeshua was without transgression and lives in righteousness. That is what one is turning to upon teshuva (repentance) / Salvation of Yah - "Yeshua"/ Yehoshua. That is how a sinner answers for himself (by atonement). G-D has always provided the sacrifices. Heb.2:14/ Gen.22:8/ 1 Cor.5:6-8 In relation to the most commonly stressed form of atonement we are told life is of the blood (the life of Yeshua was without sin and pleasing unto the Father) and he has given it to us upon the alter for atonement of the soul. Also its important to note that one who partakes of it (the Lord's table/ The Passover) unworthily (without repentance) does so in damnation unto himself Ex.12:43/ 1 Cor.11:27-29/ Mal.1:7,12/ 1 Cor.10:21/ Matt22:11-13.... Halakhah is very clear that one in transgression (the unclean) can NOT atone for itself. Even the priests used sacrifices and offerings and had to be cleansed before atoning for the people. / Also when one does Teshuva you shouldnt dare accuse them of having an intentional sin.

Hebrew words for "Repent" are shuwb (Teshuva) H#7725 , nacham H#5162. Jewish Tradition has outlined what all is involved in "repentance" which basically means to return (to G-d). According to "Gates of Repentance", a standard work of Jewish ethics written by Rabbenu Yonah of Gerona, cousin of Nahmanides

- regretting/acknowledging the sin; - forsaking the sin;- worrying about the future consequences of the sin; - humility; - acting in a way opposite to that of the sin (for example, for the sin of lying, one should speak the truth); - understanding the magnitude of the sin; - refraining from lesser sins for the purpose of safeguarding oneself against committing greater sins; - confessing the sin (spacific transgression/ Christianity accepts more general repentace as well as spacific);- praying for atonement; - correcting the sin however possible (for example, if one stole an object, the stolen item must be returned or if one slanders another, the slanderer must ask the injured party for forgiveness); - pursuing works of chesed and truth; - remembering the sin for the rest of one's life (should serve as reminder not to commit such a transgression); - refraining from committing the same sin if the opportunity presents itself again; - stressing to others the importance of repentace

Atonement is closely related to repentance. God is the ultimate judge of weather we have returned unto him. Simpley saying I repent hardly shows that you have returned and put G-D above all things.

Jn.6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Jn.14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Matt.7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works.  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Comment by William H. on February 1, 2014 at 1:12am

So the question arises: What if I am in covenant and fall short and commit a sin then immediately die before confessing that sin.

Matt.6:24 (Lk.16:13)

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Here we are told you cant serve two masters. G-d is the heart knower. So if you have come to know G-d and recieved Grace then naturally He knows your heart is inclined unto him. Just as i dont have to spacifically mention every sin i ever commited i can simpley embrace G-d in faith and repent which means return and all my sins are washed away. We are also told that love covers a multitude of sins. Keep G-d first (the greatest commandment). He said in relation to two masters you will Love the one and hate the other!

If personally Feel this is also how those that do and teach to break Torah (sin) can still make it to the kingdom even though they have sin and will be "counted least in the kingdom". They truely embrace G-d (yet are stuck in the milk) and just babes in Christ they truely Love G-d and have atonement.

2 Peter 2:20-22

For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit (Proverbs 26:11) again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Heb.10:38-39 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

***** Eze.33:7-16 ***** So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live (2 Pet.3:9): turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

Ps.32:1-2 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.(Rom.4:8)
