Satan As A Roaring Lion!!!

Satan As A Roaring Lion!!! He is out to steal, kill, and destroy our kids. He knows his time is getting short and he has got to move fast. The things that He seems to be using to draw our kids to His den of lies are: homosexuallity, gay lifestyles, witchcraft, music that is suppose to be Godly, and many more. We as Christians have got to stand up and start preaching Jesus Christ, The Cross, and Him Crucified. Also to teach them that without that there would be no Salvation. We’ve got to get back to the basics and get our children on the right road. He is working to get as many as he can in as short of a time as he can. There is only one way to stop him and that is to start pleading the Blood of Jesus Christ over our kids and give them totally to God. We have one son who has strayed away from God and our other son is wrapped up in alot of the things I have mentioned. Only God can take care of the problem. It’s our job to pray and ask God to open their eyes and their hearts to see their wrongs and want to change. In Ephesians 6:12 it speaks of wrestling not against flesh and blood but against the principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spirtual wickness in high places. The only way to fight him is to look to God for power and that comes through the Holy Spirit. Satan is a lier, he is out to decieve and to destroy our young people. We have got to stand in the gap for them so that they are not destroyed. I pray that anyone that is setting under the sound of my voice today will take these words very seriously and lisson to what God is trying to warn you about your kids. They are gifts from God and He is exspecting us to do our part to may sure that they make it into the Kingdom of Heaven. I pray today that God be with each and everyone of you and that His Face shine upon you and give you peace. God Bless!!!

Here is another post from Julia that I believe everyone of my readers need to hear.

“Warnings About False Preachers/Teachers” This is urgent for all believers in Jesus, Romans 16:17-18

July 10, 2013 by Julia Garrison’s blog

I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned.  Keep away from them.  For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites.  By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.  2 Peter 2: 1-3  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.  They will secretly bring destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who brought them-bringing swift destruction on themselves.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the truth into disrepute.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up.  Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

2 Timothy 4: 1-5 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing, and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage- with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.  Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.  But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Romans 6:2

 

 

Bible Study

Romans 6:1

Romans 6:2 (KJV)

 

“God Forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

 

The first two words in this verse tells us his answer to the question that was presented in Romans 6:1. Looking at this verse we can see that his first statement is a very emotional one and then he asks a very calculated and rational question.

 

When Paul asked the question “How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” he is actually presenting the declaration of impossibility. Let me explain it this way.

 

What Paul is actually saying is that it is actually impossible for a Child of God to sustain the same relationship with the “sin nature” or evil nature that he had before God Saved him. You have those who believe in the “sin a little bit every day” religion which says that we as Children of God sin just as much as the unbelievers do, and this is totally Hog Wash. Why do I say this? Because we as Children of God now that we are Saved have a new nature, this nature is the Characteristics of God.

 

Please understand this, even tho we have our new nature which is the Characteristic of God, we still have the evil nature or sin nature in us at the same time. This is why Paul has treated this subject with such emotion and firmness.

 

Christians & Sin

 

We as Christians are dead to sin. Because of God’s supernatural Grace, even tho he has left the sin nature in us, has separated us from it. Before Salvation this sin nature is the master of every individual that has ever been born, other than Jesus Christ. After Salvation the believer is the master of the sin nature. Stay with me on this and you will begin to understand why Paul has taught us this on a very in-depth level. Many, many Christians do not understand this. When we begin to see this Truth we begin to realize that we have isolated the problem and now have a permanent solution or remedy for it.

 

Now, we have the question of “why does God leave this sin nature in us?” The answer is that he leaves this evil nature in us as a disciplinary measure. Let me explain.

 

When a sinner comes to Christ he is a New Creation in Christ Jesus. At this time the “sin nature” or evil nature gets extinguished like a fire that has had water thrown on it. So now that the fire is out, or in this case the power of the “sin nature” has been extinguished, there are still coal embers in there that are still burning. As long as no fuel is poured on these embers they just sit there not causing any trouble.

 

But, the moment you sin, put fuel on those embers, out of control you go. Most of the time, worse than before you were Saved.

 

Now God leaves these embers in us so that we can see and know the danger of the “sin nature” that resides in us and keeps us on our face before God and looking to Jesus Christ for guidance and strength and trusting in Him knowing that only His Strength is strong enough to help us be the overcomer expected of us. During this process we will learn about the Holy Spirit and His workings in our lives by His Leading and Guidance.

 

Sinless Perfection

 

Before I go any further I need to address some erroneous teachings that are going on in some circles that if not addressed now will cause further problems with those who are new to the Word of God… Some circles are teaching “sinless perfection.” This actually comes from those who do not really understand Sanctification the way Paul actually taught it. How do I know? Let me give you an example.

 

A very well known Evangelist and teacher of mine explained it to me this way. Some years ago a friend of his who happens to be one of the greatest Bible Scholars known today who happens to now be with the Lord, was discussing this very issue with some of the Leaders in a major Pentecostal Denomination that happened to be teaching “sinless perfection,” and the funny thing is, this Bible Scholar was a member of that particular Denomination and was rebutting this error.

 

My teacher was saying that these people that were teaching the “sinless perfection” doctrine should have known better than to be going up against this man whom had a vast knowledge of Scripture. It wasn’t but a few minutes into the discussion that this Bible Scholar had proved his point to the extent that his opponent, who was incidentally “Perfect,” lost his temper. The mans associates had to restrain him so that he would not actually physically attack him in such a violent fit of rage.

 

So much for “sinless perfection.”

 

I’m not saying this to hurt anyone’s feelings but I want to dispel the idea that man can be perfect. There has only been one man perfect on this earth and that Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. What I am saying is that anyone who happens to be perfect on this earth doesn’t need a Savior.

 

Sanctification

 

At the very moment a sinner comes to Christ he is “Washed, Sanctified, & Justified” (1 Cor. 6:11). Immediately after Salvation, Sanctification happens, which is a Work of Grace from God. To clarify this, one cannot be Justified unless he has been washed perfectly clean through Sanctification.

 

So, when we as sinners come to Christ we receive a “Standing” in Him (Christ) which never changes. But, our “State” is a whole nether story. Our “State” will change almost by the hour. This is what is called “Progressive Sanctification.” Progressive Sanctification is a process whereby the Holy Spirit is constantly working to bring our “State” up to God’s “Standing.” This is a life long process and will not stop until we are presented faultless before God and His Glory, (Jude vs. 24).

 

Also reading 1 Thess. 5:23 we can see where Paul is talking about “Progressive Sanctification”:

 

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV)

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly (Progressive Sanctification); and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Emancipation Proclamation

This is such a great victory that has been given to us by Jesus Christ. This proclamation has been issued by God for us to be set free from the sin nature and its slavery. Paul goes through this and teaches us this in Romans Chapter 7. Lets look at what he said:

Romans 7:14-15 (KJV)

14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

Contrary to what some teach, this is not Paul speaking before he was saved. No unsaved person would make this type of statement. Sinners love sin, they may hate the results of sin, but they love the acts of sin. Paul knew he was Saved, but he didn’t understand why he sinned after his Salvation. Like many Christians today, Paul tried to not sin by his own strength. However, human endeavor will never overcome sin.

Paul, in this Chapter 6 of Romans is bringing out this Truth that enables the Believer to have constant victory over the indwelling of the sin nature. But, the moment we sin, that ugly evil nature the “sin nature” rears it ugly head and takes back the throne by dethroning the Lord Jesus Christ.

Even tho at times we will succumb to the “sin nature” the fact is we do not have to do so. And in fact, we wont if we understand our position in Christ Jesus…. NO!!!! this does not teach sinless perfection. For sinless perfection cannot be attained this side of the Resurrection. What this does teach us tho is how we can have consistent victory over sin…

These are some very cold and hard facts but true to the word of God and its teaching on the subject. Stay tuned for Romans 6:3 in our next lesson.
