Shall We Go On Sinning That Grace May Increase?
Jesus Christ saw it coming that was why He sent the Holy Ghost
And the Holy Spirit is the only power that can conquer all sins of hypocrisy, lies, and timidity. When Jesus told His disciples that they can not proceed into His assignment, that they must wait for the power of the Holy Spirit that will be given to them from on high; He definitely knew what is coming upon them.
For example, The religious guru and the rulers told Peter not to preach in Jesus’ name anymore, the Holy Spirit aroused in Peter, and he told them, that they must be kidding. And he went ahead preaching the name of Jesus Christ until he saved many souls from the manipulations of rulers and religious gurus. However, he faced the consequence.
WHAT ABOUT APOSTLE PAUL?
Twice Apostle Paul was informed not to go to Jerusalem; but he said that the Holy Spirit told him to go there, that he is ready to suffer for Christ. Wonderful!
When the Apostle Peter arrived at Jerusalem; and the elders revealed to him the “damages he has caused” and the consequence of what he has done outside Jerusalem; quickly some brother in Christ gave him some advice on what to do so that other Jews will think that they are on the same page. Apostle Paul followed their advice without consulting the Holy Spirit, however, his brother in Christ’s rescue mission only worsened his situation. Consequence! Acts 21
Always trust your inner spirit; I mean the Holy Spirit. What do you mean?
For example, if your daddy g.o or bishop say that you should divorce your husband or wife because of immorality; or lack of responsibility. However your inner spirit; the Holy Spirit says, your husband or wife will be reliable and become your helper in the future if you pray more; Trust the Holy Spirit. And again, I will advise you to trust the Holy Spirit; He knows what you don’t, and how God is going to work everything out in your favor.
Your General Overseers or Bishops Has Extremely Limited Vision.
If a bishop asked you for sacrificial offerings; and the next morning a supplier arrived into your office and offer you a large amount of money for what is not yours, despite all your born again status and mind of Christ you still go ahead and appended your signature on a fraudulent deal, even though you know that is a fraud, and your inner spirit also said it was stealing. However, another excellency of wisdom spirit is quote supporting scriptures to you that “the wealth of the wicked shall be transfer to the righteous; moreover the money you made from the deal is for the kingdom of God expansion.
If I may ask, Who are righteous; and who are the wicked? You urgently need to realize that the manipulative voice speaking to you is an evil spirit that wants to cause shame for you. The Devil also knows scriptures; he quoted it to Jesus himself. but, Jesus replied to him with what was written not what was suggested by the elders in the Church or motivational Bishop.
Shall We Go On Sinning That Grace May Increase?
“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with; that we should no longer be slaves to sin because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, and he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master because you are not under the law, but under grace.
Apostle Paul asks a question in verse 1 when he says,
“Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” And answers his question; “God forbid.
“The Apostle John in his first letter says that, “Whosoever is born of God does not practice sin.” So the idea of being born again or being a believer in Christ and living in sin is something that is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ.
What is a sin? Sin is a failure to do whatever that God has required from every individual.
James 4:17 says, “Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
Luke 12:47 says, “That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows.
John 9:41, Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
2 Peter 2:21. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.
The most important thing for Christians is to be allowing the Holy Spirit to keep reigning in their lives, if not you will become a hypocrite like the Pharisees and Sadducees. “Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” Check out yourself.
There Are Deception All Around Religious Camp Beware!
In many churches environment today; ladies will be fully dressed in full feather hats with long skirts inside the Church, why? Because they said it is a sin to wear short skirts, and not to cover their hair, moreover Daddy or Bishop must not see them that way. But, what about their dressing outside the church premises?
The same ladies that were pretending in the Church buildings with mommy g.o hat’s style, their fake hair will be as long as water maid, they will be extremely uncovered, their skirts will be as short as underwear level, many of them are even having sexual affairs with their general overseers and pastors, yet they want the unbelievers to emulate their double standard of life. It is not possible! The real sin here is hypocrisy
For example, if a brother is drinking beer when his bishop shows up, he continues to drink his beer, though his bishop might rebuke him or her for her attitude; at least such person live plainly; while the bishop has nothing to do than to preach, though he may not care for his soul, he only cares for his money.
Let’s say that another brother or sister is a “brewery”; but simply because they know how to do the perfect hide and seek game; such is the “most faithful” in the church, most of them are deacons and pastors in many churches today. Why? Because the bishop is just noise makers, they are blind in the spirit.
Mathew 15:1-9. “Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!” Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? … You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.” Allow the Holy Spirit to teach and guides your life and stop demonstrating hypocrisy.
Are you truly born again? If you are not yet born again, you can do so now by saying this prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I can not help myself. I am a sinner, forgive me my sins. From today, I accept you as my Lord and my Savior. Thank You for saving me!
