All Are Guilty Of Sin?
I love you enough and care much, to tell you the truth, no matter how much it hurts. No matter how much the truth angers you. For the Word of God says:
“Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.”
Meaning: True friends tells you the truth, but an enemy will tell you, what you want to hear and will flatter you with many lies. Many people in the world today believes that they are good enough to enter the kingdom of Heaven. But, by who’s standards? Is it through their own merit? Do they believe that, they can earn the right into Heaven?
Isaiah 64:5&6 says:
“You (,referring to the Lord God Almighty,) are indeed angry, for we have sinned- In these ways we continue; and we need to be saved. But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags;”
Our own righteousness are as filthy rags. Many people believe, they are good enough, to enter the kingdom of Heaven. So the question must be asked, have you ever coveted?
Covet: ‘To want intensely, something that another person has.’ (according to the Webster’s New World Dictionary.) Sin has a domino effect to it. One sin opens the door to other sins. All the while, sins eventually quiets and soothes the conscience, where the things that once bothered you, doesn’t anymore. This is accomplished through compromise. The seed is: the compromise in thoughts. Coveting can eventually lead to the thought of stealing. You may think that this is a bunch of non-sense, but remember, covet: is to want intensely. And a lot of people would go to great lengths to get what they want. If you covet enough, you would steal it. And then lie about it. A lot of shop lifters do not steal out of necessity. But out of want, through intense desire for something. Or let’s consider identity theft. Identity theft exists, because of extreme coveting. Here are a couple of examples. It is written:
“You shall not steal.”
Coveting can also lead to Adultery. That’s why God Almighty expounded on this in:
“You shall not covet your neighbors house. You shall not covet your neighbors wife, or his manservant’s or maidservants, his oxen or donkey, (,or in today’s terms, vehicles,) or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
So have you ever committed Adultery? Jesus even goes as far as to say in:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit Adultery.’ But I tell that anyone who looks at a woman (,or a man while married,) lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his own heart.”
Coveting can also lead to lying, as well as a lot of other things that tempts us to lie. The only reason why anybody would lie, is to cover up something that that person did, or who knows was wrong to do. Coveting can also lead to murder and so forth.
“You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.”
All this boils down to idolatry, the worship of things and also the flesh.
Idolatry: ‘Worship of idols, excessive reverence for or devotion to a person or things.’ (according to the Webster’s New World Dictionary.) Which is also written:
“You shall not have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything in Heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; (or spend excessive amount of time with people or things, more than God, above God.) for I the Lord your God is a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.”
Why do we sin? I have to admit sin is fun. Sin seems to be fulfilling. But sin, in truth and reality, is a moment of pleasure, for a life time and eternal life, of Hell. We sin because humanity is desperately trying to find fulfillment. To fill that dark void that is in our hearts. That dark void is there for a reason. God has put that there, so when we say “yes,” to Christ, Jesus comes into your life, and fills that dark, empty void. That void is for Christ Jesus alone. Nothing should try to fill that void other than Christ, As it is written:
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the still waters, He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.”
All humanity has a spiritual disease that leads to death, the second death, which is Hell. And that disease is called “the sin nature” that lives in us all. If you have admitted in your own heart that, you have coveted, committed Idolatry, committed adultery. Or you have stolen, or even lied. By your own admission: ‘you are a coveting, adulterous, lying thief, who worships false god’s.’ Or another words: selfish. If you have said ‘yes’ to any of these, or, ‘yes I have done all these things,’ then you have broken God’s commandments and have fallen short of His standards of right living.
James 4:17 says:
“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.”
And James 2:10
“For whoever keeps the law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.”
Sin in a nut shell is this: the things that you know is right to do, and you do not do them. And the things that you know is wrong to do, yet you do them, is sin. The whole point of the law, is not to keep the law for salvation, or another words earning the right to heaven by our own merit. But to be sin conscious, as it is written:
“Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole the world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather through the law we become conscious of sin.”
So the Word of God is very clear. That no one has the right to Heaven. No one can earn their way into Heaven by our own means. It is only through God’s standards, that one is righteous. Not by works, but by faith in Jesus the Christ, The Son of God, that one can be saved, born again, and who’s names are written in the lambs book of life. They are the ones who will enter the kingdom of Heaven.
John 3:16 says:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in Him (Lord Jesus The Christ) shall not perish but have eternal life.”
It’s not enough to live by the law. But Jesus is more than enough, more than you need to enter Heaven, as Jesus Himself so boldly and confidently proclaimed in:
“I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”
“I tell you the truth, I Am the gate for the sheep. All who ever came before Me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I AM the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. (rest,) The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they (,those who believes in Jesus as the Son of God,) may have life, and have it to the full.”
And again John 14:6
“I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
So let me ask this question again. By what means, and by who’s standards, will you enter the kingdom of Heaven? For the Word of God says again, going back to:
“I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”
“I tell you the truth, I Am the gate for the sheep. All who ever came before Me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I AM the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. (,rest,) The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they (,those who believes in Jesus as the Son of God,) may have life, and have it to the full.”
The gate here, is now the focal point. So in: Mathew 7:13&14
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
This is Gods standards of living. These are God’s standards to Heaven! The only way into Heaven, is through His Only Begotten Son. And His name is Jesus The Christ. To have a relationship with Him as it is written, dealing with the standards to Heaven.
“Then Jesus went through the town and villages, teaching as He made His way to Jerusalem. Someone asked Him, ‘Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?’ He said to them, ‘Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. Because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. (Why? The Standards of God, no one live by, for very long. All, falls short of God’s standards. Without Christ’s, help no can live by His standards, which is righteous living. No sin will ever enter the kingdom of Heaven.) Once the owner (,that is the Father, God Almighty,) of the house (,house is referring to Heaven,) gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ’Sir, open the door for us.’ But He will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with You, and You taught in our streets.’ But He will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from Me all you evildoers!’ There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. People will come from the east and west and north and south, and will take their place at the feast in the kingdom of God. Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and the first shall be last.” (meaning the Jews, whom Christ Jesus came for first, shall be the last to enter the kingdom of God. For Christ came to the Jews first, and they rejected Him. But in the last days, they will then believe, that Jesus is the Son of God, and be saved. But the gentiles, who believed will be first, for they excepted Christ Jesus freely. That’s what the first and last means.)
This proves that, relationship with God, is the way to Heaven and expounds on the important of relationship with God vs. works. Those who accepts Christ Jesus will be accepted into Heaven. And those who reject Christ Jesus, will not be accepted. And the only way to have a relationship with God, is through Jesus the Christ, The Son of God. He is the only way. He is, the only way! He is, the only Way! As it is also written:
“Jesus answered, ‘I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you really knew Me, you would know My Father as well.”
Who are the ones who will not enter the kingdom of God?
The Word of God is very clear! Just in case you are still in doubt. Remember, no sin will ever enter the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9&10 says specifically:
“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; Neither the sexually immoral (,This includes also the rapists the pedophiles… of all sexual immorality, period,) nor idolaters (,sexual immorality is Idolatry. For it is the worship of the flesh, and anything that is placed above God; as first priority above God, is Idolatry, period.) nor adulterers nor male prostitutes (,or any prostitutes; both male and female.) nor homosexual offenders (,in the New King James version of the Holy Bible translates “homosexual offenders,” as: “sodomites.” Which is referring to those who practice sodomy. I believe both homosexuals, bi-sexuals, transgender, as well as heterosexual peoples, as well as the rapists, the pedophiles of all types of preferences, who practices sodomy, is included in this passage of Scripture.) nor thieves nor the greedy nor the drunkards nor slanderers (,people who defame another’s character,) nor swindlers (people who defraud, and trick others, out of their money, property, and basically any other material possessions.) will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Again it is written:
“For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person – such a man is an idolater- has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient, therefore do not be partners with them.”
And again it is written: Revelation 21:7&8
“He who overcomes will inherit all this, (All this what? The kingdom of God and the new earth, that is promised in: Revelation 21:1-6,) and I will be there God and he will be my son. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the Idolaters and all liars — their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
So as a Christian nation as well as the world, we should consider the cost of judgment that is coming for all mankind, and the cost of following Christ Jesus. Especially for the believers of Christ Jesus. For it is better to not have known anything about the Lord, found in:
2 Peter 2:19-22
“For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning (,talking about sin). 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. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to it’s vomit,’ and a sow (,or pig,) that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.” (mud which also contains pigs dung. So literally they wallow in their waste.)
And let’s reason in our heart’s to God. Another words: repent or perish!
How Does A Person Go to Hell?
Ignorance is not bliss, but deceitful. It is the will of God Almighty for all to be in the know. This is not my interpretations, but the Word of the Lord. This segment will be divided into two categories, “unbelievers,” and, “believers.” Yes, it is possible for believers to go to Hell. What you don’t know will kill you. That is biblical.
Hosea 3:6 says:
“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”
Rejection: of the Lord Jesus Christ is the ultimate way for an unbeliever to go into Hell, which is a form of unbelief and rebellion. And to mention this, people don’t believe that God throws those who rejected His Only Son into Hell. In fact that is the truth. God does not condemn anyone into Hell. The person who refused to believe in Jesus the Christ, condemns themselves into Hell.
“Who ever believes in Him (,that is the Lord Jesus Christ,) is not condemned, but who ever does not believe stands condemned already, BECAUSE he has not believed in the name of God’s One and Only Son.”
Even John the Baptist witnesses and testify’s this simple truth and fact, as he was testifying that, the Son of God is here in the world. For John the Baptist was called by God to prepare the way for the Lord, and to baptize everyone who is willing. The baptism of repentance. To get everyone in Israel, ready for the first coming of the Lord Jesus. For Israel was waiting for thousands of years prior to that time, that the Prophets of God had also testified that, the Messiah will come. John the Baptist testifies the truth of the Son of God, Lord Jesus the Christ, found in:
“To this John replied, ‘A Man can receive only what is given him from Heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said, I am not the Christ but I am sent ahead of Him. The bride (,the believers and followers of Jesus the Christ) belongs to the bridegroom. (Jesus the Christ Himself.) The friend (referring to himself. For John the Baptist, is the friend of Jesus the Christ on this earth at that time. So this also proves who John was referring to,) who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for Him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. (Why? Jesus the Christ is now in the world, coming to save the sinners.) He must become greater; I must become less. The One who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The One who comes from Heaven is above all. He testifies to what He has seen and hears, but no one accepts His testimony. The man that has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For no one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in His hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remain on him.”
Ignorance: is another way into Hell for all eternity.
Again Hosea 3:6 says:
“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”
Proverbs 4 entitled: Wisdom Is Supreme.
“Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. When I was a boy in my father’s house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, he taught me and said,”Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; (Save you.) love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will set a garland of grace on your headand present you with a crown of splendor.”
Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many. I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall. They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.
My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
And in Proverbs 8 entitled: Wisdom’s Call.
“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud: “To you, O men, I call out; I raise My voice to all mankind. You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding. Listen, for I have worthy things to say; I open My lips to speak what is right. My mouth speaks what is true, for My lips detest wickedness. All the words of My mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse. To the discerning all of them are right; they are faultless to those who have knowledge.
Choose My instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are Mine; I have understanding and power. By Me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; by Me princes govern, and all nobles who rule on earth. I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me find Me. With Me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; What I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love Me and making their treasuries full.
“The LORD brought Me forth as the first of his works, before His deeds of old; I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began. When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, before He made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world. I was there when He set the heavens in place, when He marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, when He gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when He marked out the foundations of the earth. Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in His presence, rejoicing in His whole world and delighting in mankind.
“Now then, my sons, listen to Me; blessed are those who keep My ways. Listen to My instruction and be wise; o not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to Me, watching daily at My doors, waiting at My doorway. For whoever finds Me finds life (,referring to Jesus the Christ, the Son of God.) and receives favor from the LORD. But whoever fails to find Me harms himself; all who hate Me love death.”
I will be very blunt here. Jesus is wisdom. And He is the way to understanding. Accepting Jesus, is wisdom and is wise. For wisdom will save you. Jesus will save you. But the one who rejects Christ Jesus, rejects salvation. Who also rejects the only way into Heaven, is a fool! and only does foolish things. As it is written:
1 Corinthians 1:18-31 entitled: Christ The Wisdom and Power of God.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.
Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of Him (,God the Father,) that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”
“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the scriptures says (,the word “says” is an action word, which is still saying to the end,) ‘Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.” (Paul is referring here to: Isaiah 28:16,) For there is no difference between Jew and gentile- the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, For, ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (referring again in: Joel 2:32.) How then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ But not all the Israelites accepted the good news for Isaiah says, ‘Lord who has beloved in our message?’ Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, (that is the Gospel message of Jesus Christ,) and the message is heard through the word of Christ. But I ask; Did they not hear? Of coarse they did: ‘their voices has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.’ And again I ask Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, ’I will make you envious by those (,the gentiles,) who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.”
There is no one on the earth that has any excuse for ignorance. We have in this world, the Holy Word of God, most importantly. In most fortunate countries we have Bible book stores to get the message of the Lord Jesus Christ. We still have churches who does not compromise, who preaches the message of salvation. We have internet, the five-fold ministries, who goes out and preaches in different countries, the true Gospel message of Jesus the Christ. We have TV ministries. We have all these different avenues to get the Message of Salvation. So therefore there is no excuse. So no one can say in the face of God, when we all stand before Him on the day judgment, ‘I have not heard the message of salvation,’ when all this time we had any and every way possible to find out. For God made every way possible for you to find out, how to get saved! Why all mankind, desperately needs, to get saved. And How to keep our salvation in Him.
Un-repented sins: is another way one can go to Hell, which in reality falls under the categories of rejection, and rebellion. Which is obvious. Both believers and non-believers are under this. God does not give us license to sin. But He is pro-choice. He allows all to choose either Him or sin. God Almighty is Faithful to give all mankind a fresh new start in life. And the only way to have this, is by giving your heart and life to Christ Jesus. To confess all your sins, you ever committed. And God will give you a new life, and baptize you in His Holy Spirit. To give you the power to live this new life in Christ. And also to help you live the standards of Christ, as long as you confess to God all your sins as it is written:
1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and to purify us from all unrighteousness.”
But the opposite is true. Not one sin will be allowed to enter the kingdom of Heaven, once again.
What sin does.
“When tempted, no one (,both believers and non believers,) should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own desires, he is dragged away (,separated from God,) and enticed. Then, after desire conceives, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.” (death here is described as the second death, as Jesus taught. The second death is known as Hell.)
The Fruit of the flesh, manifests through the natural sin nature of man. That is why all mankind is in desperate need of the Savior, Lord Jesus The Christ, to give us power to put this flesh down unto subjection. To subdue the desires of this flesh in the name of Jesus the Christ.
Un-forgiveness can be the number one ticket to Hell for all eternity. How?
Mathew 6:14 commands:
“For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Heavenly Father will not forgive your sins.”
Un-forgiveness is sin, in the eyes of the Lord. For He desires us to be full of mercy and grace, and walking in the truth always. To love one another as the Lord Jesus has commanded us believers and followers of Him. Un-forgiveness is walking in the Spirit of the flesh which is the devil, not of God, no matter the circumstances. And I do know what I am talking in my own life. To not hold a grudge, just forgive. For it is very clear here in the Scriptures, that not one sin will be allowed to enter the kingdom of Heaven.
Peter had this same question, and asked Jesus in:
“Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven time. (seven times for each day. The teachers of the law back in Jesus’ day, were teaching to forgive your brethren only seven times a day. But Jesus says in verse 22,) I tell you, not seven time, but seventy seven times.” (Jesus was teaching, to forgive, all the time. But some people read to much into this saying of Jesus, and runs straight to the calculator and calculates the numbers. But that is not what Jesus was teaching. This is not the point of Christ Jesus’ teachings here. If you really want to read between the lines, 77 times 7 which is the trinity of perfection. For the # 7 represents perfection according to Hebrew symbolism. I believe that is what Jesus is getting at. To be perfect in the eyes of God in this area of living in Christ. And that is to perfectly forgive anyone who has come against you, in any situation, in any way they come or came against you always. For it is not worth holding onto grudges of the past or present, and go to Hell over. And that is what the devil ultimately wants, is to take with him, as many people as he can to Hell. For he knows his time is really short now. Jesus continues in: verse 23) Therefore the kingdom of Heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. As he began to settle, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
But when the servant went out he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denari. He grabbed him and began to chock him.’ pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded. His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ But he refused. Instead, he went off and had them thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servant saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened. Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said. ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ In anger turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. This is how My Heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”
Un-forgiveness can also lead to retaliation or vengeance. And vengeance can lead to murder. Have you murdered? This may seem to be a silly question to ask, but you’ll be surprised, what God considers to be murder, as it is written:
1 John 3:15
“Anyone who hates his brother (,or sister who is a fellow believer in the Lord Jesus the Christ,) is a murderer and you know that no murderer has eternal life in Him.”
And again in: Mathew 5:21
“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother (,or sister, who is a fellow believer in the Lord Jesus the Christ,) will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to His brother (,or sister, who is a fellow believer in the Lord Jesus the Christ,) ‘Raca!’ is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says ‘You fool’ will be in danger of the fire of Hell.”
This is how serious the Lord is with un-forgiveness. And to add this in while we are on the subject of murder. Check out this video……
My problem with this new video, is not only the demon possessed act of murder in this situation, which is becoming the norm, all over the world. But those who were watching this, as it was happening, and did nothing about it. This is what bothers me most of all. This act of watching, is considered in my book as murder. Clearly the witnesses reported that they’re were other passengers, on the bus that could easily out numbered the killer. But instead the remaining passengers fled out, in fear. Pathetic! If there were any so called, believer’s of Jesus Christ in that bus, there judgment will be harsh, when they face the Lord, on the day of judgment for allowing murder. When they could easily had out numbered one person. Anyway.
Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: is the only sin on the face of the earth that will not ever be forgiven of men, and women. Why? Jesus, The Son of God Himself specifically and clearly says, that this is the unpardonable sin. A lot of believers, has in the back of their minds that, they may have blasphemed the Holy Spirit of God.
“And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit (,The Holy Spirit of God,) will not be forgiven.” (This is a true definition of blasphemy, of the Holy Spirit. So what is exactly blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?) As we continue in: verse 32 it tells us) “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man (,meaning Jesus, the Son of God and God the Father Himself,) will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. (meaning the present, when Jesus taught this. And the age to come, referring to the future, all the way to the end.)
Speaking against the Holy Spirit is, the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, that will never be forgiven ever. Being unmerciful: is another way for a believer to go to Hell.
“I tell you that the One greater than the temple is here. If you had known what these words means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath.”
“Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”
Being unmerciful brings all sorts of sin. There is a domino effect. A repercussion to it.
“Furthermore, since they did not think it worth while to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a deprived mind, to do what ought not to be done. They become filled with all kinds of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, (which leads eventually to:) murder, strife, deceit and malice.”
God desires us believers, to be merciful. In fact He requires it. He does require this from all. And He undoubtedly requires this from His children above all peoples of the earth. Lord Jesus expounded on this as much as He could. For mercy, is, God Almighty’s very nature and essence. He teaches this in:
“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich mans table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’ But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from here to us.’He answered, ‘then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my fathers house, for I have five brothers . Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.”
This is the only parable that Jesus ever taught, as far as we know, where Jesus mentions actual names. This references, an actual event that did take place in all eternity. All of this falls under the category of ultimately rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ. Being unmerciful, disobedient to God, Blaspheming the Holy Spirit of God, and, un-forgiveness goes against the teachings and the very nature of God and Christ Jesus. As it is written:
1 John 5:1-5
“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ (,the Son of God,) is born of God and everyone who loves the Father loves His child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out His commandments. This is love for God; to obey His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? (it’s loose desires of the flesh.) Only He who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
This is the teaching that Jesus taught, that one must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of Heaven.
“Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know You are a Teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs You are doing if God were not with Him.” In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” “How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered,”I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. (the Spirit of God.) “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked. “You are Israel’s teacher,”said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? I tell you the truth, We speak of what We know, and We testify to what We have seen, but still you people do not accept Our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? No one has ever gone into heaven except the One who came from Heaven—the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in Him (,the Son of God, Lord Jesus,) shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s One and Only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
John the Baptist’s Testimony About Jesus.
“After this, Jesus and his disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where He spent some time with them, and baptized. Now John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were constantly coming to be baptized. (This was before John was put in prison.) An argument developed between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing. They came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, that Man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan—the One you testified about—well, He is baptizing, and everyone is going to Him.” To this John replied, “A man can receive only what is given him from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Christ but am sent ahead of him.’ The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He must become greater; I must become less.
“The One who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The One who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what He has seen and heard, but no one accepts His testimony. The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the One whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in His hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”
And again: 2 John :6&7
“And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love. (and the flesh cannot do this for very long, only the Spirit of God who lives in those who excepted the Lord Jesus the Christ, into their heart and life, has the baptism of the Holy Spirit, to help those who have the Holy Spirit to live this new life in Christ Jesus for He is our Helper.) Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver (,child of the devil,) and the antichrist.”
