Not Want To Live Forever
  
"What if a person does not want to live forever?" Simply reject the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, thus refusing the salvation the Father offers through Him. Jesus said, "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." To reject Him is show contempt for His Father, and as it is written, He "repays to their face those who hate him, by destroying them." The Hebrew word for destroying, as used in Deut 7:10 is defined perish 98 times in the O.T. The lake of fire is waiting for those who have no desire for eternal life through Christ.

Read Or Study The Scriptures
  
"Word usage (semantics) is very important because our usage of the CORRECT words is the only way we truly can PROPERLY express every thought we ever have." And understanding the words used in the original language by the scribes to express the Father's thoughts, and how those words were defined in that language is the only way we will, under the inspiration and guidance of His Spirit, ever properly understand the Father word to us. Reading the words as translated, assumes the accuracy of the translation. Studying, or making an effort, to assure accuracy, shows ourselves approved or acceptable to God, a teacher that will not be shamed.


The Power Of The Law
  
"But don't you need to defend yourself, if your wrong?
David wrong has no defense, and right needs no defense.
"Do any one of your teachers hold to Paul's testimony?"
I have only one teacher, and Paul's testimony, If it is a statement of truth, was inspired of Him.
" if your wrong, there will be no Eternal Life."
To know the Father and Jesus as the one sent, is eternal life, and this life is in His Son. The Holy Spirit seals me unto the day of redemption. And I know Jesus is able to keep me from falling, and to present me blameless before Him in the glorious presence of the Father. I am entirely comfortable and confident in what I've been given to believe. Are you?


The Power Of The Law
  
"Josef That's why I hope you wake up, it's because you don't battle sin." David Christ in me, is my hope of glory. I abide in Him, and again, in Him there is no sin. Why should I spend my time battling something that I am dead to? When the Father lead me to His Christ, by His grace I acknowledged myself a sinner in need of His salvation, thus confessing my sin. He then lead me to repentance, as an empowered turn from the kingdom and power of darkness, to the kingdom and power of His dear son, cleansing me from all sin. David this is simply a response to you concerning my position in Christ, and my relationship with the Father. It is not meant as an argument, nor do I feel any need to defend myself. I simply love sharing.


The Power Of The Law
  
David what is it about the statement "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?", or any other statement that I've made, that gives you the impression that I need to :o)"wake up"? I don't battle sin, I focus on and embraced the righteousness of God through Christ, for His word abides and endures within me. My hope, is in Christ.


The Power Of The Law
  
"If Sin is in the world, and you still sin, have you overcome the world?"
My belief is as it is written, Jesus has taken away the sins of the world. With the world, as used here, representing the inhabitants of the planet that believe, adheres to, trust in, and relies on, Him. I do believe, without question, that He is the Son of God, referred to, for sins sake, as the lamb of God. I believe Jesus was the atoning sacrifice for sin. Therefore yes David, I know that I have overcome the 'world', as in this sensually based system of things with its rules and adornments. Adornments that entice and seduce the senses, and rules conforming to and dependent upon sensual dictates and passions.


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
Barb both Jesus and "Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which does those things shall live by them." "But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that does them shall live in them." And "as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: Christ hath redeemed us, [as believers], from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:" See 1 John 4:8-21. Love fulfills the requirements of law, while faith honors the Son. The question is not whether the law is in force, but whether the believer is bound by the law?


The Power Of The Law
  
Re:"Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." How is this done? "The word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one." How did we overcome? "[We] overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of [our] testimony" Who are we? "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" How is this victory obtained? "Whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith."


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
I am unfamiliar with any denominational teaching concerning this. However, In agreement with Father's word. "I through the law, am dead to the law, that I might live unto God." For the Christ, through The Law of liberty, has freed me from the law of sin and death, and I will not be entangled again with that yoke of bondage. I've been delivered from the law, to serve in the newness of the Spirit. Therefore I do consider myself "dead to sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus".


The Power Of The Law
  
David, by the way, I do believe you, I have no reason not to. What would be the purpose of your lying to me. Who am I. I can take you at your word because I believe, as it is written, the believer can do all thing through Christ, which strengthens them. I believe that with the Father, all things are possible, to them that believe. That's why I said in my previous post, good for you. That wasn't a dig.


The Power Of The Law
  
David, and I never said you were bragging, I took what you said then, as now, as an explanation of how you overcame sin in an attempt to help me. I understand the concept, It is the love of the Father that has enabled me to accept His word that Jesus took upon Himself the sin of the world, and that His presence in the world signified the fulfillment of the law and the prophets. That their purpose was complete in Him, for those of us who believe. As one regenerated spiritually, and renewed mentally from above, I know that I can not sin because I understand that to sin under the covenant of grace is to miss the mark of my high calling, in Christ. I hit that mark when I, by His love and grace, acknowledged and confessed Jesus as Lord and Saviour.


The Power Of The Law
  
I have not committed that, or any other sin. Good for you David. You have obviously reached a point that the Father has yet to bring me to. Personally Father has shown me not to consider myself more highly than I should. For like the rich man who came to Jesus sincerely believing that he had kept the law, Jesus loving him, gently pointed out to him that as earnestly as he had attempted, and perhaps successfully, kept the letter of the law, he unfortunately failed miserably when it came to the spirit of the law. David I'm not suggesting that you have done the same, I'm simply saying that I know that I have failed. Therefore I look to the faith of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice to justify me, rather than the law, kept or otherwise.


The Power Of The Law
  
We are not under the Law after sin dies, but we are under the Law before sin dies. Paul says the same in (Romans 7:1) David, sin doesn't die, the believer dies to the law, which is sin's strength. How? See (Rom 7:4) "I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For [Father] made [Jesus] who knew no sin to be [the] sin [offering] for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." In our unity with Christ, there is no sin.


The Power Of The Law
  
Correction to previous post, this line should have read, "I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me". The former makes it sound as if I thought I had something to do with this new life, I don't, I simply acquiesce by His grace, and the empowerment of His Spirit.


The Power Of The Law
  
'What role do you believe, "The Law", plays in our lives.."
"The law was our schoolmaster, instructor, tutor, or guardian to bring or lead us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith." Gal 3:24 seems clear to me.

David thank you for sharing.

David continue.

"I followed his instruction and Six months later, in an instant, sin died, and the battle was over. Please share those instructions David.
