Sinful Believer

John 16:7-8 ** “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Holy Spirit, Counselor) will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send HIM to you. And when he has come, HE will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.

The Messiah privately spoke these words to HIS disciples as the time of the Sacrifice for the Passover Lamb drew near. It was still not clear to the disciples that Y’shua the Christ Jesus was the true sacrifice of the living God to wash away the past sins of those that do HIS will. The Holy Spirit came to mankind on the holy day of Pentecost. This Holy Day is fifty days after our God sacrificed His Holy first born son Jesus, Y’shua to wash away the sins of true believers. This began the Messianic Church of God Worldwide.

 Isaiah 43:25 ** “I, even I, am HE who blots out your transgressions for MY own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”   ** Because of constant desire for transgressions mankind has developed into more satanic greed in this age.  Father God instructed the Prophet Isaiah in verse 28 saying: “Therefore, I will profane the princes of the sanctuary (temple officials); I will give Jacob to the curse (destruction), and Israel to reproaches (scorn, disgrace).”  ** The contempt for our Creator in profanity, destruction and disgrace promptly came about with a 70 year trip to Babylon circa 586 BC. The earlier scattering (Diaspora) throughout the known world of the ten tribes of Jacob in northern Israel started circa 722 BC.  The next trip in Diaspora (scattering), came about with a trip to Rome and the rest of the known world in circa 70 AD. This trip lasted nearly 2,000 years until 1948. When the Messiah soon returns, the next trip will last forever.  The scattering of the children of Jacob was because of scattered and incomplete belief in the commandments of our Creator.  The entire world in this age has such scattered and incomplete belief they have turned away backwards. The backwards turn is the actual worship of Satan; a former heavenly divinity who is the current ruler and god of this wicked world (Ephesians 6:12 & 2 Thessalonians 2:4}. 

Hebrews 12:1-2 **……Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. ** Our heavy weight of pain and suffering caused by Satan from the beginning of creation causes mankind to turn to that god of death instead of the ONE God of life. Mankind often turns a deaf ear to the language of pain which is often our ONE God’s discipline. This is correction just as a good father disciplines his son in whom he delights. Verse four of Hebrews 12 quotes Proverbs 3:12 advising the Lord disciplines those HE loves and also punishes those HE loves.

When the Holy Spirit condemns us of disobedience, very few turn to repentance, prayer, fasting and keeping the commandments. To seek constant heavenly relief from evil deeds is the desire of our God (Yahweh) to blot out our transgressions.

 Some people turn to other ways for relief with praise of man such as doing charitable work or even intense Bible studies but not exercising what the new found knowledge directs them to practice. The Holy Spirit records and convicts this partial repentance from sin. But is it good enough for the Kingdom of God? Not likely…At the soon coming judgment most of mankind will be convicted as stated in Matthew 5:17, saying: “Do not think I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.”   Again, the Messiah preached this in John 16:8-9, saying: “And when HE has come, HE will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in me.”  ** To fully believe is to do the will of Father God by keeping HIS commandments of love. Mankind’s personnel pain and struggle against sin is costly to the point that few will endure to win the race to enter the Kingdom of God. Luke 14:31 advises, “Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?”

No man can do it alone. Even if we keep all the Ten Commandments as well as the seventh day Sabbath, the annual High Holy Day Sabbaths (Leviticus 23) as did Jesus and the early Messianic Church of God, we may still be lacking.  Much of mankind thinks all is in order to greet the King of Kings and Lord of Lords with great joy. However, in Matthew 25:34-35, Christ said: “Then the King will say to those on HIS right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of MY Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungry and you gave ME food; I was thirsty and you gave ME drink; I was a stranger and you took ME in. I was naked, and you clothed ME; I was sick and you visited ME; I was in prison and you came to ME.”  **    Our true colors of faith and love to win the race of life forever are to stretch a little more in love and faith. Just as we stretch a rubber band to the limit before it breaks, we must reach out to our Father in heaven to guide us, strengthen us spiritually, mentally and physically. Whatever is needed to win the race for life is in HIS hands. Only our ONE God of life has the power to rescue us out of the mess the world is in.  The evil liar of this world of hate (Satan) continues to guide us unto death.  Stretch today far away from thoughts of hate to thoughts of everlasting love!
