32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him."4 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Without obedience you have nothing; sorry, there are not wildcards in the camp. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. No man is promoted or excused that repeats sin. You are without excuse O man. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion. The way is clear: listen and obey. Obedience leads to restoration of life."]
23 If you will repent at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
33 But whoever listens to me and heeds what I say, shall dwell safely; and he shall be at peace from the fear of evil."3
|1 Peter 1:22 |
22 Purify your souls by obeying the truth into unfeigned love6 of the brothers, dearly loving one another fervently with a pure heart; [This has been mistranslated as having purified your souls. It is impossible to have purified your soul and still be without salvation; so they have yet to purify their souls. The original Greek Net Bible shows that "purify" in this verse is not past tense, it is present tense; and Footnote 5 in the original Greek Net Bible shows this verse to read "pure heart" in early manuscripts; later manuscripts eliminated the word "pure" to simply read "heart" not "pure heart."]
