7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is to have you, and you must master it."
26 Provoked, but not to sin, that the light of day not go down because of your exasperation. [Anger is sin and can cause you to lose the measure of the light of God and day that you have laboriously gained. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not let the light go down on your anger. Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom." Because the translators, schooled by Babylon, don't understand that all anger is sin, this verse is seriously mistranslated in most Bibles to read: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger;" which incorrectly implies that your anger is not sin unless you hold onto the anger into the night. Because the original Greek can often be interpreted in several ways, the interpretation chosen is greatly influenced by the translators' beliefs; and if the translators have some incorrect beliefs, those incorrect beliefs will cause them to incorrectly translate many scriptures. Although Paul clearly states in verse 31 below: "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice;" the translators blithely go on, without a clue to the true gospel, including that the Lord can completely purify person to become like Him.]
27 Leave no room for the devil.
|1 Timothy 5:14-15|
14 So I would have the younger widows marry, bear children, and manage their house, thus giving the enemy no occasion to speak reproachfully.
15 For some have already turned aside after [the deceits of] Satan.
12 Do not allow sin to reign as king in your mortal body, that you would yield to its desires and serve its lusts and evil passions. [The Romans had been freed from sin, but they could still fall to temptation if they were not watchful; they had a perfection like Adam and Eve. They were yet to advance to the union with Christ as a son of God to be protected from ever sinning again.]
|1 Peter 5:8|
8 Be sober and vigilant, because your adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. [See Footnote 4 of Genesis 3 for more on the devil's devouring.]
|James 4:7-8 |
7 Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts,2 you double minded. [James tells those in the churches who are still sinning to purify their hearts by drawing near to God; which occurs by persistently and patiently waiting on Him, listening and obeying what you hear the Lord command you.]
