I feel led to talk about sin, right now. One does not hear much about it any more.
Even from the pulpit, sadly. It will pollute you.
But I feel led to write about it, because many even in the body of Christ, think you are judging them, if you bring it up. They get angry, indignant, they think you are judging them.
Yet, according to Ezekiel 33, from my King James Bible, it says, we are called to warn, and warn, even the “righteous.”
When I read that word, righteous, I assume it to mean, a Christian, who thinks they are saved, but they are allowing sin, into their life, their soul, and physical body.
God tells us to be Holy, for He is holy. And sometimes, I just shake my head, because I see many think their salvation, is a license to sin, and thats just plain wrong.
FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD: YE SHALL THEREFORE SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, AND YE SHALL BE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY: NEITHER SHALL YE DEFILE YOURSELVES WITH ANY MANNER OF CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH. Leviticus 11:44. KJV.
Beware of sinful creeps. Just saying….
Folks, in our King James bibles, it tells us, God will not hear us, if sin is there. And again, I emphasize get a King James bible, that is holy, and not corrupt. You won’t get the truth, the anointing, the holiness from a bible that is corrupted. So get a King James bible.
But just know, any kind of sin, will hurt us. And thats the part, that grieves me, to know, sin separates us from Him. From His sweet fellowship, His counsel, His love, and friendship, if we choose to sin.
BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:2 KJV.
Have you ever tried to worship God, but worship does not come out of your spirit? You feel cold, you feel numb? Remember God is a spirit, and those that worship Him, worship Him in spirit and truth. If you have so much sin, in you that “pollutes” your spirit, your faith will be off, and so will your worship. I wrote “How To Have Faith.”
I learned these principles, that I write about in my book, because I know there are differences. And sin, will stop it all, sin, will blind you, sin will make you have a “dirty” spirit. Check yourself, do you allow sin, that pollutes you?
I have grown enough, to know that I want no sin in my life. See, we reap what we sow. And spiritually, those sins, when un-repented. Dirty our spirits. They dirty our souls, they dirty our physical bodies, and our minds. Think about those who sin, and how filthy their minds are. You don’t want that, you don’t want to reap sin, in your life, you don’t want anything that separates you from God.
I could write a long list, of what sin does, because it comes from the enemy, and it is meant, to kill, steal, and destroy the life God has given you. Thats the enemies goal. And if the enemy, can take your crown, before Salvation, he will tempt you. But if you give your heart to Christ, and repent, truly, and (I recommend daily repentance) you can see yourself change, and grow more to His image. You can run from temptation.
When I say they actually dirty the body. Think about sexual diseases. Think about diseases that cause cancer, or destroy parts of the body. Smoking, drinking, drugs, open doors to illnesses, that one will reap, if they pursue that. We need to teach this to our youth.
So when I see a Christian open a door, and suggest its o.k. to drink or take drugs, they are not seeing how it can hurt someone, even others, who reap that. They are contributing to sin, and a Christian, should never do that.
I suppose this is why I pray, even now, to not be a part of those things, because I see, how all of these things led to my own brokenness, and because of sin. I reaped much of that. Yet, I was pruned by Christ. Whom He Loves He corrects. And believe me, He corrected me. And His correction is not always pleasant. See, God is not mocked. But I reaped what I sowed.
And I am bearing fruit for Him now, because I see the error of my ways. I repented, and I still do. Even when I think of my sins. One can have a new beginning, even where you are. Even if you are old.
Even if you are taking your last breath, because then, at least you are promised eternity. But you cannot have it, if sin is there, or its un-repented.
I am not holier then thou. I say all of this to you, with a very humble heart. I know where I came from. I know what I was delivered from. I know, where I have been. So when I tell you this, I don’t tell you to judge you. Because as the scripture says, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. I know this, it grieves me to know I sinned. To know, I had such poor judgment, especially in my youth. I made mistakes that were sins, that haunt me for the rest of my life. But when the devil does that, I remind him, NOW who I am in Christ. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. Read Romans 8:1 King James.
Yet…. I know, I am not worthy on my own. But only by the blood of Jesus. That cleansed me. But when you see what He did on the cross for you, when you see, who you were, and now changed, it does make you see, one should not play with their salvation. Your salvation, is not a license to sin.
But just know this, even though it may feel like judging, its warning. And we are called to even warn the righteous. Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James, over and over again. Because the righteous, could mean someone who thinks they are saved.
And I see so many in the body of Christ, play with it, they do not fear God, or work it out, with fear and trembling. And I don’t care what folks say, about works. But faith without works is dead. You need to work it out. You don’t take it for granted.
EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE. JAMES 2:17 KJV.
Let me just say this, and try and make this somewhat short and sweet. Sin, stops your blessings, the blessings God intends for you. Sin, clouds your mind, distorts truth, and will actually blind you. You will believe the delusion. And many in the body of Christ, even now, are delusional.
AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE. II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.
And this is hard to understand in some cases. But…one can reap sickness, or illness, if you continue in sin, and don’t repent. Don’t think you won’t, one will. This is why Christ, took those stripes, and by His stripes we are healed. He took the penalty, of our sins. See sin, brings curses, and thats another thing, you want to avoid, with all your being. There are many different curses. If you want to read my book on this, go to this link. You can order it on line, on Smashwords. There both of my books can be ordered on line.
All I can say, is repent, even daily, keep your robes white, keep oil in your lamp, live for Christ, get a good King James bible, pray. And stay away from sin, stay away from the enemy.
Submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee. Your job, is to stay close to God, stay away from sin, and live the best life you can with your salvation in tact.
I hope this helps someone.
Blessings, and love in Christ,
