The only way to be free from the bondage of sin is through Jesus. Everything you else you ever try is futile.
There’s only one way to the Father and that’s through Jesus Christ.
Man is a spirit, he posses a soul, and he lives in physical body.
You are not your soul or your body, you are a spirit being.
When you get born-again, your spirit is perfect and sanctified. Your soul and body still needs to be renewed.
Since you are not saved by your own goodness, then, your lack of goodness cannot un-save you.
If you confess faith in Jesus Christ, you are born-again.
Faith is the issue where born-again is concerned. Sin doesn’t call you to lose your salvation.
If you sin, you do not lose your salvation. All sin is on the same level. So, don’t listen to people who say that you lose your salvation if you do some grievous sin.
James 4:17 (KJV)
Romans 14:23 (KJV)
James 2:10 (KJV)
The Law is like a plated-glass window. No matter what you put through it, the glass cannot be patched. Violate one commandment, then you’re guilty of breaking the whole thing.
If you can sin your salvation away, then the only way to heaven is to die immediately after being born-again.
Human beings fall short. There is no way you can resolve this issue (penalty of sin) without Jesus Christ.
Since salvation depends solely upon putting your faith in Jesus, your sin does not affect your relationship with God concerning righteousness and going to heaven.
Though if you choose to say in sin, there are consequences of that such as, not experiencing intimacy with God.
God fellowships with you based on your faith in Christ alone.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
Hebrews 6:4-6 (KJV) – Once saved, always saved? If you harden your heart through sin to renounce God, it would be impossible for you to “come back to God.” This take a lot to get to this stage, but scripture says it’s possible.
Hebrews 3:13-14 (KJV)
If you persist in sin, far and long enough, you could come to a place where Satan can make you renounce your faith in God. This is very difficult and one has to be spiritually immature. In my own words, no one cannot lose their salvation. For this to happen, that person was never saved in the first place!
John 15:2 (KJV)
“You shall be cut off” – AIRO (GREEK): “take away or cut off” – It means to bear away, to carry off, to lift from the ground (Strong’s Concordance).
The strong carries the weak until he becomes strong. The heart of God says that I will bear you up until you bear fruit.
And if you do bear fruit, you still get pruned so that God can make you even more fruitful. For example, God will take away the religious mindset and mixture (Law and Grace) that you may have so that you can understand grace.
Hebrews 10:26 (KJV)
All sin is willful, an act of your will.
Context: Hebrews 10:5, 10, 11, 18, 26
Willful sin: Rejecting Jesus Christ as the final and only sacrifice of sin.
The issue is of unbelief. When you don’t believe you’ll try to change the rules to preserve what you believe to justify it.
1 Corinthians 6:9-12 (KJV)
If you’ve been born-again and made Jesus the Lord of your life, you are justified, and delivered from the penalty of sin (not inheriting the kingdom of God).
Galatians 5:19-21 (KJV)
If you choose to reject Jesus, then this is true for you. ^^
