The standard Be Ye Perfect ( No excuse for sin NONE)
I know that many may not have the technology or the privacy to listen to the above presentation.
so I am going to write as much as I can on the Topic of Being perfect or living without sin as presented in the audio.
http://www.adventtimes.com/audio/SeekingTheLostCampaign/SL07%20%20CD%2005%20THE%20STANDARD%20BE%20YE%20PERFECT.mp3The standard Be Ye Perfect.
What does the call to be Perfect means.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
If man had His way if the Bible was inspired by man that verse would be there.. We think it too hard. Many give up on the Christian walk because they think this command is too hard. God is asking us to be Just like Him.Would God ask us to do something that we cannot do ?
Its a battle.
Romans 7:14 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.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
Have you been there ? I know its frustrating. I have been there too. We are all like Paul in Romans 7:24 saying Oh retched man that i am who will save me "
Only Jesus reached the standard
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Wasn't Jesus God ?but wasn't he human also..
Could it be that Jesus mastered the human flesh becuase he was God ?
Is perfection outside of Human reach is it a Godlike characteristic ?
Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
What does that text mean didn't he retain heredity,wasn't he expose to the same hereditary tendencies as we are.
When we make mistakes and we find excuses for our sinful ways .We say my father had this sin,my grandfather had this same problem evangelicals (those who don't protest any more) coined a new term they call it "Generational curses". No one is bound to the sins of for fathers.Christ can break any hereditary tendencies.
Jesus was made according to the flesh and we make excuses to say hereditary has taken control us that's why we sin.
We should take much effort to understand the nature of Christ because that is where the power is.
Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Jesus came as a substitute for man and overcame sin in sinful flesh.
If i can do it He said i can do ..I came I, saw I conquer Christ was the first to say that..
No excuse for sin NONE.
Man was made in the image and likeness of God.
Were Angels Created ? yes.
Were angels created in the image of God? No
Hebrews 2:5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
Note 1. The angels will not have dominion in the world to come. This passage is borrowed from psalms 8:5 ..the original Hebrew of lower than the (Angels) translates Elohiym( its correct I checked it out my self ). Thou has made man a little lower than God.
This is why the Devil hates us so much !
God places us above Angels and he is trying to get us back to that position.
The redeemed will be place above angels.
Read on 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
The reason why people even in the church dont like to here that Jesus took on sinful flesh is because he overcame in the flesh that we have and beacaus he did it under sinful flesh we can do it too..They will even use Jesus as there excuse not to overcome sin.Why sin is sweat thats why.
8 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.
He understands what temptation is like .. The lust of the flesh the lust of the eyes and the pride of life Christ was tempted in all thses catogories.. He overcame where Adam lost the battles.Jesus knows what it is to be tempted and how to overcome in the flesh.
If you can prove from the Bible that Jesus used Divinity to overcome then his coming was in vain.The would of died for nothing.. But thank God He overcame in sinful flesh.
Revelation 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.
When we are confronted with temptation If we connect our will just like He connected withthe fathers will we will overcome any temptations.Overcoming the flesh is easy with Him in us.
WE make excuses some say we dont have to keep the law we are not under the law
Romans 6:1 1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
We sin because we Let sin come in.
Sin knocks at the door you let sin in .but when Christ comes and knock we tell him no cu cant come in sin is in here. you and sin can mix and i prefer to have sin in here. you can come in when sin i allow sin to leave ..Lord you wait that's what we tell him
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
you can have Dominion over sin ..
Genesis 4 :6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
If baptism is symbolic of dead, why would we go down to the watery grave and self still comes up alive.
Baptism is symbolic to what has already taken place .. we are dead to sin before baptism ..baptism cannot change us its showing the world we are dead to sin and we now live resurect ,we have a new life.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
The christian road is not laden with roses. But Jesus says i have overcome the world ..How He yeilded his self to God every step every turn every day every minuite.
It does matter the appetite. Sex,pride food, media it is self.. Give your self to God totally.
He kept self suppressed.. There is no excuse for sin.. It is not justifiable at all.
When we try to justify sin we have the mind of Satan.
Like Adam and Eve. She made me do it .
2 Timothy 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Paul was confident.
1Cor 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
If paul we can do it too ..We may have reservations in that Christ overcame but if paul can do it we can do it..
no fight no trial is in vain.be strong be immovable
2Cor 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.
Christ can keep you from falling ALWAYS .THERE IS NO TEMPTATION THAT IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU HE CAN KEEP YOU ALWAYS
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
What does confident means you can take it to the bank .. He will finish what he has started the good work in you..IN every one of your life . Its up to you to let Him.
We have to cooperate with God .. If self ever takes control Jesus has to back off.. thats how he works when He takes control let Him work in you listen to Him.
We give too much credit to the Devil ,Satan is letting me do this and he is that .Forget Him.
Satan has to get permission to come trough Jesus to get to you.. Remember Job Read Job 1
Cant it joy when he comes at you .. its a opportunity for perfection .
While Satan is constantly seeking to blind their minds to the fact, let Christians never forget that they "wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in high places." [Ephesians 6:12(MARGIN).] The inspired warning is sounding down the centuries to our time: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." [1 Peter 5:8.] "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may able to stand against the wiles of the devil." [Ephesians 6:11.]
From the days of Adam to our own time, our great enemy has been exercising his power to oppress and destroy. He is now preparing for his last campaign against the church. All who seek to follow Jesus will be brought into conflict with this relentless foe. The more nearly the Christian imitates the divine Pattern, the more surely will he make himself a mark for the attacks of Satan. All who are actively engaged in the cause of God, seeking to unveil the deceptions of the evil one and to present Christ before the people, will be able to join in the testimony of Paul, in which he speaks of serving the Lord with all humility of mind, with many tears and temptations.
Satan assailed Christ with his fiercest and most subtle temptations; but he was repulsed in every conflict. Those battles were fought in our behalf; those victories make it possible for us to conquer. Christ will give strength to all who seek it. No man without his own consent can be overcome by Satan. The tempter has no power to control the will or to force the soul to sin. He may distress, but he cannot contaminate. He can cause agony, but not defilement. The fact that Christ has conquered should inspire his followers with courage to fight manfully the battle against sin and Satan.
Great Controversy EG White
He can get on or nerves but the moment we give in we will fall.. choose not to fall.
The same way we choose to sin every day ,the same way we can choose to live sinless. Its a vote.. Satan cast in his vote ,Jesus Cast in His vote. Now you have the tie breaker. you have to choose.
2 peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God( His Word the Bible), and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Its a round on the ladder verse 2-8 every one has its place if you mist one it affects the others
10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
Do this things and you will stop sinning .. stay on the platform.
trials of all types bugs us .. All of us have struggles.. Paul pray for his three times..we must pray more than ever (We don't bruise our knees enough some of us.. Jesus spent all night praying sometimes..
2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
many people think all kinds of things where the thorn in flesh.. inspired writing says it may be his eyesight from much investigation.. He was blind on the road remember .. never fully recovered.
Trials are there to develop character,God allow certain things in our life to shape us to mold us.
God has not turn His back ,but when self comes in play he allows trials for us to get over.
We have the assurance that He is right there with us every step of the way if we let Him in and lock the devil out.
The standard is high but Christ was victorious..
Its time to live triumphant over your sins.
Yes we can be victorious over sin.
