Many so called Christians today have a misconception of God and His Holy Word (the Bible) and argue about it.
They believe that a Christian has a free reign to sin because we’re no longer under the Law of the Old Testament, but under the Law of grace.
In their eyes this means that once they come to “accept Jesus” all of their sins are forgiven, passed, present, and future. This is even thou the bible doesn’t say anything about accepting Jesus but rather about following him.
If you try to tell them about living righteously they will tell you “we are not under the Law thus if we stop sinning that would be salvation based on works and we’re saved by grace”.
Let me take a couple of minutes here to clear out these lies and misconceptions that are a direct result of having false teachers in the mainstream pulpits and also as a result of reading false bible versions created by Satanist.
Let me first start by explaining that we are not under the Leviticus Law of the Old Testament that it’s true.
Now we need to understand what was the Law of The Old Testament.
The Law of God consisted of two parts. The rules for righteous living (The Law) – and the rules for dealing with those who break his rules for righteous living. (Also part of the same law known as the Law of Moses).
The Law for righteous living consisted of no lying, no murdering, no adultery, no stealing, etc. So let’s call this “God’s rules” in order to avoid future confusion.
However, because of the fall of man in the garden of Eden God knew that people would not be able to keep his “rules” and provided a way to forgive them from breaking His “rules”. ( A just judge has to righteously punish law breakers- otherwise he would be an unfit and unfair judge to rule.)
This is where the Leviticus Law comes in, this is the Law consisting of how to deal with those who commit sin and transgress against God’s rules and commandments. Remember they had a set of rules to follow, then they had another set of rules to follow should and when his given commandments were broken.
That is to say in today’s terminology we have the law, then we have the judicial system to deal with the laws that are violated. (So we have laws to follow and a set of laws to follow to deal with the law breakers.)
Now in order to deal with the ”rules” that were violated and be forgiven from such, The people under the Old Testament had to constantly be sacrificing, lambs, doves, bullocks, etc for the redeeming of one’s sins. (This is because the wages of sin is death) – God used animals as substitutes rather than to take the life of the human sinner. Other greater sins required that person to pay with his or her own life.
But for most of the time God allowed his people to transfer their sins into the sacrificial animal, then destroyed that animal bearing those sins. This became a practice because when Adam and eve first sinned, God had to kill an animal to cover the nakedness of Adam & Eve, when prior they were covered by the glory of God, thus sin resulted in death. First the death of an animal, then the death of Adam & Eve who were created to live forever in their original bodies.
So these sacrificial animals were brought to the high priest to be offered in the Holiest of Holiest in behalf of the people for the redeeming of their sins.
This practice was a constant practice that continued in order to keep redeeming the sins of the people. In addition to the Ten Commandments, there were also Holy days that needed to be kept, rituals that needed to be performed, ordinances, as well as strict regulations and guidelines that had to be followed to the letter.
So we could imagine the constant burden of works that people had to do in order to receive forgiveness from their sins. But God told them and promise them a better covenant and a day when they would receive rest from their works. That day came when Jesus died for our sins. (Hebrews 8:6 KJV)
Now we rest from the Works of the Old Testament, but we need to work now in the ministry of the gospel given to us by Jesus Christ until the final day of rest, that it’s to say until we reign with Christ. (Hebrews 4: 8-9 KJV)
When Jesus died the New Testament came to life. A testament it’s a “will” and in order for a “will” to come to life and be honored, the death of the person making the will should first take place. (Hebrews 9:16 KJV)
Thus Jesus died to be the sacrificial lamb for the redeeming of our sins. We no longer have to do the works of the Old Testament to receive forgiveness from God, now we can boldly go before the throne of Grace for those things. (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)
So when a person says we don’t have to stop sinning because we’re no longer under the Law, this person does not know what he or she is talking about and is under demonic spirits.
The “rules” of God does not change it is the way God deals with those who brake His “rules” that have changed. The Levitical Law of dealing with Law breakers it’s no longer under effect because Jesus fulfilled the Law himself and through his sacrifice we can receive forgiveness of sins.
Does that mean we can sin all we want?
Forgiveness of sin its only granted to those who wholeheartedly confessed and repent from their sins. Not to people who purposely willingly sin and then they say “I’m sorry” or perhaps even think that all their sins are automatically forgiven without the need of repentance. (1 John 1:9 KJV) – (Acts 3:19 KJV)
Please understand that we all commit sin through our sinful nature. Our sinful nature will cause us to: lose our patient, blur out a curse word, think bad thoughts, say things we shouldn’t be saying, stumble in our walk with Christ, and things of this nature. However, this is not an excuse to willingly sin by living ungodly. Willingly and consciously sinning include: committing fornication, adultery, defiling your body with alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, living carelessly, and doing as the pagans and non-believers do by partaking in their doings. We as Christians are told in the NEW TESTAMENT Scriptures to be separate from the world. (2 Corinthians 6:17 KJV)– (1 Corinthians 10:21 KJV)– (James 4:4 KJV)
The so called “Christians” who think we can sin all we want because we’re under grace are stepping into some very dangerous grounds. The Scriptures say that it would be impossible to renew these people again being that they are re-crucifying Christ over and over again and putting him unto an open shame. (Hebrews 6:4-6)
Do you as a Christian want to re-crucify Jesus on the cross all over again, thus putting him unto an open shame?
Then remember, we are not under the Leviticus judicial system to be pardoned from our sins, but we are always under the righteous “rules” of God. We are not free to sin, but if and when we sin, we should confess our sins to God and repent immediately from those sins.
The correct definition for the word “repent” is to turn away.
