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____________
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)
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
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.
/Wrought- G#2041 ; to toil (as a task, occupation, etc.), (by implication) effect, be engaged in or with, etc.: - commit, do, done, labor for, minister about, trade (by), work./
abideth- G#3306 A primary verb; to stay (in a given place, state, relation or expectancy): - abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry (for), X thine own.
Mk.13:13 / 2 Tim.2:3/ Jas.1:12/ Jas.5:11/ Eph.6:13/ 1 Chronicles 16:34
Matt.4:17 "From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." / Sin is not "okay". (Matt.3:2/ Mk.1:15) Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Repentance -Heb. Teshuva/ Gr. metanoia (Lk,24:44-47)
-Phil.2:10-16/ Col.2:10-11/ Lk.8:15/ Mk.6:12
"SIN NO MORE" <-- Blog
* Upon repentance/confession unto YHVH sin is washed away and DoesN't Exsist :) To bring it back up is to doubt the promises of Yah. (Is.43:25/ Heb.8:12; 10:17/ 1 Jn. 1:9/ 2 Pet. 3:9/ Ps.51 !) God wants your LOVE and is worthy of Praise Prov.21:3, 1 Sam.15:22, Hos.6:6, Rev.4:11, Col.3:14, 1 Cor.13, 1 Pet.4:8, *Deut.6:5 & Mk 12:30 Choose THIS DAY whom ye will serve Josh 24:15 (Deut.11:26; 30:19)
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).
