EXCEEDINLY SINFUL

graceYou_Must_Born_Again_draft

In order to truly understand just exactly what Jesus Christ has wrought for us in salvation we need to understand the state of the soul without Jesus Christ.

Let me show you what the Bible says:

The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions desert.” Jeremiah 17 :9-10

Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that SIN BY THE COMMANDMENT MIGHT BECOME EXCEEDINGLY SINFUL.” Romans 7:13,

According to the Bible, those without Jesus Christ are DEAD in trespasses and sin. This means that they are dead people who are alive in this world BUT DEAD UNTO GOD. They cannot know him, believe in him, or hear him in any way. They may have a “form of knowledge” but they have no intimate experiential knowledge of God.

This is why the Lord likens our relationship with him as a husband and wife. Until the relationship is joined as one in the marriage bed it is only a formal relationship but not an intimate one .

According to the Bible, the state of man without Jesus Christ is totally depraved, that means totally corrupt. Having NO GOOD THING. There are some who will argue with this by saying that mankind can make good choices because they are made in God’s image and have his law written in their hearts BUT this is not so according to scriptures because the soul without the born again experience is corrupt in every way, shape and form.

In fact, the carnal heart is corrupt to all which is good. Even what looks like a good choice will always have a selfish motivation behind it. Always! Even man’s so called “good behavior” is evil.

Just because one has knowledge of good does not mean that they can preform what is good. God put the tree of the knowledge of GOOD and evil in the garden and Adam and Eve partook of it. Mankind knows what is good but they Cannot perform good without being given the new nature: the nature of God.

In fact the mystery of the gospel is thus: CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY. Without the Spirit of God dwelling in a person they do not belong to God. Many “accept” (which by the way means, “approve of”) a false Jesus made up in the minds of men in order to get blessed and rich and prosperous BUT these are apostates not true Christians. They do not have God’s Spirit living in them or they would be able to perform good, which is surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ even if that means persecution, affliction or poverty.

The doctrine of original sin in the Bible reveals that the sinful state of man is by nature in ENMITY WITH CHRIST.

Romans 8:7-8: “For the mind that is set on the flesh is HOSTILE [echthra-enmity, hatred] to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.”

Genesis 6:5: “The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

Romans 3:10-11: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God.”

1 Corinthians 2:14: “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”

Ephesians 2:1-3: “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience – among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were BY NATURE [physis-birth, physical origin, the force, laws, order of nature]
children of wrath, like the rest of mankind
.”

John 8:34: “Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.’”

John 6:44: “[Jesus said,] ‘No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.’”

Mark 7:21-23: “For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

John 3:19: “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil.”

Psalms 51:5: “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.”

Psalms 58:3: “The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies.”

Job 15:14: What is man, that he can be pure? Or he who is born of a woman, that he can be righteous?

Jeremiah 13:23:”Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil

John 6:64-65: “[Jesus said,] ‘But there are some of you who do not believe.’ (For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) And he said, ‘This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.’”

The Bible clearly says that the soul without Jesus Christ is DEAD IN SIN, BLIND TO THE GOSPEL, BY NATURE SINFUL, HAVING NO GOOD THING AND BY NATURE HATES GOD.

The Bible also says that UNLESS the Father draws, chooses, allows, permits, a person to see the truth he cannot and will not get saved.

Man is a three part being BODY, SOUL[EMOTIONS, MIND, WILL] AND SPIRIT. ALL THREE OF THESE AREAS ARE TOTALLY DEPRAVED, CORRUPT, IN BONDAGE TO SIN AND CANNOT WITHOUT GOD’S HELP BE FREE.

Ask your self this question,”If the carnal man is exceedingly sinful, having no good thing in the body, soul or spirit, and by nature hates God, by nature is the child of the devil, by nature is dead spiritually, by nature is blind to spiritual things, how then can he choose the good? How then IF sinful man is corrupt totally in every way can he make a decision to “accept” Jesus Christ of his own reconnaissance ?

Quite simply, HE CANNOT!

John 6:64-65: “[Jesus said,] ‘But there are some of you who do not believe.’ (For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) And he said, ‘This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.’

Child Evangelism in different communities. Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
