|1 John 3:4|
4 Whoever commits sin practices lawlessness; for sin is lawlessness.
42 And will cast them into a furnace of fire, where there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the righteous shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him contemplate, discern, and understand by hearing. [Listen to Jesus, the word within your heart; discern and understand. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10 ]
23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you who work iniquity'10 [sin, lawlessness, or wickedness]. [From the Word of the Lord within: "I only know those who have been crucified." He knows everything, but his "knowing" you is for him to become one with you, which occurs after you have been crucified. Unless cleansed by the Lord's Spirit that destroys sin within man, every man's heart starts filled with evil, filled with sin, defiled, and disqualified for heaven. All defiled men are banned from heaven. This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Mark 7:6. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lack of restraint, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. All these evil things come from within a man and defile him. Mark 7:21-23. And in no way shall there enter into it [heaven] anything that is defiled...Rev 21:27. The Lord is warning those who think they are Christians and still sin: 1) he doesn't know you, and 2) he will cast you into outer darkness, banned from heaven at judgment. To follow Him is to obey what you hear Him command you to do; to hear, you must sit, think on his name, and then wait in humble silence while listening and watching. From the word of the Lord within: "Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. No man is promoted or excused that repeats sin. Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. All men have heard the call to repent. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior." Those anonymous calls all men have heard to turn from evil, which if ignored, will be their judge, John 12:47-48; at their death every word will be played back, heard, and remembered to their great shame and sorrow.]
4 For there are certain men who have crept in unnoticed, written about long ago, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lawlessness and wantonness, a license for immorality; and deny and disown our only Master and Lord Jesus Christ.2 [These men transferred the meaning of grace from the truth: that with repentance the Spirit of God commands us to deny lusts and ungodliness as it purifies us to be able to live a soberly, godly life in this present world — transferred instead to the twisted lie that grace excuses all past, present, and future sins in believers, thereby excusing believers to live in their lusts and pride as they please with no laws. The false church has made the blood of Jesus an excuse for evil; therefore they have made His blood an unholy thing; and so they trample on the son of God and show contempt for grace. Heb 10:29. It is not what one says that makes Jesus their Lord or Master, but their deeds. By claiming grace excuses all continuing to sin, these men denied and disowned Jesus as their Lord and Master, who said, "repent or perish, and sin no more." From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care. They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand." Peter identified the false christian leaders of his time also: "For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. Although these false teachers promise them liberty, they themselves are the slaves of corruption [sin, immorality]; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved." 2 Peter 2:18-19. False teachers promise liberty to continue in sin, but Jesus said, "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin." John 8:34. The wages of sin is death. Rom 6:23. Not only has Christianity made grace a license for immorality, but Christianity has caused their believers' consciences to be seared as with a hot iron, leaving them indifferent to sin and evil. There is a liberty for a crucified son of God, free from all sin, walking in love and fulfilling the law; but until you are free from all sin, you are subject to being banned from heaven when you die.]
|2 Timothy 2:19,21|
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his." And, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ [calls himself a Christian] depart from iniquity [lawlessness, sin]." [Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. 1 Cor 15:34. From the Word of the Lord within: "You cannot pass the moral commandments and be a Christian."]
21 Therefore if a man purges himself from the latter, [iniquity, lawlessness, sin] he will be a vessel of honor, sanctified and ready for the master's use, and prepared for every good work. [By the word of truth, the mercy of grace, and suffering in tribulation, iniquity is purged from your heart and soul so that you are ready to obey His ordered works of righteousness to your joy and His glory. The purpose of becoming a Christian is to do works according to the will of God: so that thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven. Mat 6:10]
|2 Thessalonians 2:7 |
7 For the mystery of iniquity [lawlessness, sin] is already at work; only He who now restrains it allows it, until he [it] appears out from your midst.
