How does everyone view sin, transgression, mistakes, and disobedience? As we all view such differently from one another, but how does God view it? Clergy, Imam, Rabbi will always have a ready answer for you which again is generally a personal opinion of God’s view for you. For each of us must answer to God by our heart, our thoughts, imaginations, deeds, and actions.
It was shabbat and I was reading the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs and I thought to myself, “I will go to the store and pick up a few things,” knowing it was shabbat I said to myself, “I’ll wait until after sun down to go, that way I would not be violating God’s commandment.” Then the Spirit spoke to me and said, “You have already violated the commandment, for you heart being disobedient, sought a way not to violate the commandment of God.” Realizing that now my intention was indeed to “wait” until sundown I was no longer in the Lord’s rest, but anticipating leaving the Lord’s rest for my own selfish desires, just to go to the store for small things that don’t even matter. This is called disobedience although I had not yet committed the physical act, I planned to, and agreed to – in my thoughts.
Now seeing that I have freedom of the Law under Mashiach, praise be to the name of Yeshua the son of YHWH, shabbat is a choice, of which I have violated many times in my life. All men and women on the earth have violated shabbat and require a sin offering to be cleansed, and yet this is not possible for those not under grace. A Rabbi, will tell you different and a Catholic priest may tell you to say some “Hail Mary’s” and yet your sin remains unless you are cleansed by blood. Now for those who don’t know of such things, I don’t mean take a bath in human or animal blood, but covered by a sacrifice or sin offering as required in Leviticus 16.
1 Samuel 15:22
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר שְׁמוּאֵ֗ל הַחֵ֤פֶץ לַֽיהוָה֙ בְּעֹל֣וֹת וּזְבָחִ֔ים כִּשְׁמֹ֖עַ בְּק֣וֹל יְהוָ֑ה הִנֵּ֤ה שְׁמֹ֙עַ֙ מִזֶּ֣בַח ט֔וֹב לְהַקְשִׁ֖יב מֵחֵ֥לֶב אֵילִֽים׃
But Samuel said: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices. As much as in obedience to the LORD’s command? Surely, obedience is better than sacrifice, Compliance than the fat of rams.
Now did God forgive my disobedience? Of course, not because I asked, but because I am covered by a sin offering for all time. The main understanding is that it was the very action of my heart that caused the transgression, not the actual deed. For I was already in sin before I committed the deed, it was the action on my thoughts, of which I agreed to, that became the transgression. Now this thing my God has shown me to make me understand how easy it is to transgress, how easy one can be moved from obedience to disobedience based on our thoughts.
So then, with such ease – one can sin, how then can anyone be saved? The necessity of a covering of sin is required and God has made it so, starting with the Law He gave to man, of HOW to be removed from sin in His presence and WHY it is in our benefit to be cleansed of sin.
Now then there are those who are agnostic, or have never seen or heard from God, or simply do not believe in such and view as a fairy tale, or grant as much levity as to the deception of Santa Claus. Why should one care then about sin, when they do not believe in God, or punishment from God? Well we all have a conscience and understand the difference between right and wrong even if we choose the wrong – we all know the difference.
Even the most cruel and vile of mankind understand that setting a cute puppy on fire is just plain wrong! All kidding aside, we all know the difference, but that does not mean we are all educated on what the difference means. Just as I have limited knowledge of how to put an engine together, but understand it’s required if I want to drive a car, so then understanding the difference between right and wrong is a common essential function, just as breathing.
Now then many say, “Well my choice of what right and wrong is – is based on what I determine it to be.”
One could say, “It’s not wrong to light a cute puppy on fire – just cruel.”
So we as humans are cunning and can make light and dark areas gray or twist what we know to be wrong to justify actions. For this is the most basic understanding of human knowledge of which we are all imbued and as such learn as children.
Now then as to the agnostic who does not acquaint oneself with the knowledge of God, is the same as one who does not acquaint oneself to building engines. For they are both reality in the human world with God being the creator of both. Now do I suggest the agnostic equate his understanding to finding out about God? Well yes, for to do so is to understand the power of all things, rather than live in a bubble of ignorance.
Is it an insult to say one is ignorant? Not at all! We are all ignorant of subjects that are real, just as one who is a Doctor in Nuclear science, and yet ignorant of how Bee’s manufacture honey. So then we as humans are ignorant of a great many things and is it not the job of those in their field to educate about those very things we are ignorant?
So I say to you that are ignorant of the things of sin – do not die in your sin.
“At that time therefore I inquired respecting him, and respecting the general judgment, saying, Why is one separated from another? He answered, Three separations have been made between the spirits of the dead, and thus have the spirits of the righteous been separated.
Namely, by a chasm, by water, and by light above it.
And in the same way likewise are sinners separated when they die, and are buried in the earth; judgment not overtaking them in their lifetime.
Here their souls are separated. Moreover, abundant is their suffering until the time of the great judgment, the castigation, and the torment of those who eternally execrate, whose souls are punished and bound there for ever.
And thus has it been from the beginning of the world. Thus has there existed a separation between the souls of those who utter complaints, and of those who watch for their destruction, to slaughter them in the day of sinners.
A receptacle of this sort has been formed for the souls of unrighteous men, and of sinners; of those who have completed crime, and associated with the impious, whom they resemble. Their souls shall not be annihilated in the day of judgment, neither shall they arise from this place. Then I blessed God,
And said, Blessed be my Lord, the Lord of glory and of righteousness, who reigns over all for ever and for ever.”
What we know as it pertains to God and the things of God, just as one understands how a transmission works, YOU DO NOT WANT TO DIE IN SIN. And yet all mankind has this plague of sin. O how to be rid of it?
Easy peasy lemon squeezee.
Well the good news is there is no need to spend the rest of your life killing animals, like in Leviticus 16, and you couldn’t do that even if you wanted to. AND there is no bad news.
Correct, this is not a Good news, Bad news story – just Good news.
So then, just as a Doctor in Nuclear science can tell you why the core is melting and how your dying of radiation poisoning, so to I could explain how your dying in sin, but wouldn’t you just rather take the experts word for it?
I mean, do you really want to spend the next ten years becoming an expert on the process of nuclear fission? Nor do I – this is my field, it’s what I live, breathe, and do daily – so take my word for it.
Here’s the quick “Understanding Sin for Dummies” guide & the simple way of not dying in your sin:
- understand that every time you sin something must die in your place as God requires death for the sin.
- understand that you’re not going to kill something every time you sin as God has strict criteria for how it is to be done, and by whom can do it for it to be acceptable.
- God understands that the human race is not capable of performing this feat as made very clear through a human species called Israelites.
- God decided to solve the problem for the human race, but at the same time make it difficult for the ego’s of mankind to accept God’s gift – in other words, not everybody can make it in the door.
- not everyone will accept FAST PASS tickets to Disneyland – hey your busy right, who has time?
- understand that a man called Eashoa, Yeshua in Hebrew, or Jesus to the English world, died as a sacrifice for all the sins of the human race.
- Yes God called this man His son and gave Him to the world to forgive your sins so that you don’t die in your sin.
- Yes the species of humanity have varying opinions about Yeshua, and we are free to believe whatever we wish – it’s called “will power” or “your will/choice”
Yes I know it’s complicated and so is Nuclear science, so just take my word for it.
Now, how do you KNOW? Right, that’s the big question, how do you KNOW that it works?
Well again a Neurosurgeon can explain to you, how to work on a brain, but are you really going to grasp what is said? I mean, are you really going to understand brain surgery if you don’t, you know, put in the time to learn – like at least ten years?
Do you have ten years to learn?
You should probably take the Neurosurgeon’s word for it, but I am going to explain a little more about HOW you will know that it works. Because hey, we all want evidence something works right?
First, read this passage below, it was written almost two thousand years ago. Millions of people in the world accept this, and unless you think you’re better than everyone else, like not a sinner, then you should accept as well:
“But now the righteousness of God has been clearly revealed apart from the Law, though it is confirmed by the Law and the Prophets. This righteousness of God comes through faith in the anointed Yeshua (Jesus) for all those who believe. There is no distinction, since all have sinned and continually fall short of the glory of God, and are being justified as a gift by His grace, through the payment for our sin, which is provided by Yeshua, whom God publicly displayed as a sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation by His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness (which demands punishment for sin), because in His deliberate restraint, He passed over the sins previously committed. It was to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Yeshua.” Romans 3 Amplified
Here is the short version of what above means:
God gave his anointed Yeshua as a payment for the sins of mankind.
Something has to die in place of your sins. God declares that IF YOU accept the GIFT, and I mean accept like you would accept a good birthday gift, and BELIEVE, that Yeshua’s actual blood was shed, INSTEAD OF YOURS, will WIPE OUT YOUR SIN – forever.
Then – you WILL NOT die in your sin. That simple.
Now, I know, I know, Rabbi’s hate to hear this. They want you to work sooooo diligently on earning your way to heaven, bit by bit, piece by piece. But there is one thing they don’t tell you, and shhhh, it’s a secret… they haven’t done any blood sacrifice’s in two thousand years, well at least not publicly for the people… maybe in a back room somewhere – in secret which is forbidden.
So that means, guess what? You DIE IN YOUR SIN. I’m sorry, the Rabbi can’t save you buddy, or anyone for that matter. Not Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, or Hindu, but only the sin offering of HaMashiach (the anointed) Yeshua. Religions and Rabbi’s can help you through the existence of life, but that’s as far as it can go – eternal death comes after, if your sins are not…removed.
“The athiest is destined to Hell fire in the Hereafter. This is because the athiest refuses the most basic belief which is the existance and oneness of Allaah.” Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid
Anyway, that’s all you have to do is ACCEPT & BELIEVE, that the anointed, (word meaning Messiah) Yeshua, died in YOUR PLACE – FOR YOUR SIN – that’s it. Do that and all is forgiven – no more dying in your sin.
I know it sounds so easy right? Like I said before – not everyone gets a FAST PASS, not everyone gets in the door.
It’s like VIP ONLY. There’s a thing called EGO, and EGO don’t like to do what other people say to do. In fact, Ol’ Ego has a way of doing things, and won’t be convinced by the very, very, best Nuclear Scientists that there is ACTUALLY a melt down, just like those Chernobyl guys.
Ego, says “Everything’s fine, go about your business, it’s just a small fire, there won’t be radiation poisoning, it’s Chernobyl, how bad can it be?
EGO likes to get people killed.
EGO likes to be dumb.
EGO will make you die in your sin.
Like I said, not everybody can get in, God made it this way for a reason.
But if you are one of the fortunate few to make it in the door, congratulations! Oh, I almost forgot – THE EVIDENCE.
What is the evidence ? ? ?… We all want evidence ! ! ! Show us the evidence !
The evidence is the Holy Spirit of God. Yes, the very thing your Rabbi will not dare allow you to say, too bad for them, cause we get to say it, out loud, as we have special privileges when it comes to being free of sin and children of the Most High God. I know it sounds crazy, but so does removing pieces of a persons skull to work on their brain, and yet it happens everyday.
So yes the Holy Spirit of God, if you ask Yeshua in all sincerity, will come upon you. Literally the opposite of demon possession, and NO, your head does not spin around! You may, however, feel an over powering amount of love, yes the actual feeling of love, like ocean waves crashing on your body. It’s pretty wild, amazing is not a good enough word to describe the feeling.
Oh and yes, you have power over the demons now as well, but that is another topic, and generally reserved for those who have ACTUALLY received the Spirit of God, not someone who is on the fence of whether or not to believe anything I am saying here.
Ok for all you sinners out there, all you have to do is repeat after me, not as a joke, but in sincerity, and I do warn about the joking aspect as anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, as it is written,
“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy [every evil, abusive, injurious speaking, or indignity against sacred things] will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. Matthew 12:31
So what is blasphemy? The act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
So do not mock the Holy Spirit, fear God and live. So we should fear God, like be afraid of God? Yes and No.
Do you love your mom or dad, but at the same time, as a child fear them? Fear God means fear to disrespect God, fear to cross God, fear to speak evil of God as there are consequences to your actions, especially those who do not have a ticket to ride. Ticket to ride meaning, you accepted your FAST PASS through Yeshua.
Ok so this is all you need to say – to permanently remove your sin,
“Yeshua, I accept your sacrifice for me and believe you died for my sin. I accept your gift of life by dying in my place. I accept the forever removal of my sin by your own blood. Please send me the Holy Spirit of God to seal me so that I may have eternal life as you promised. Make known to me the will of God in my life and thank you for giving your life in my place.”
If you have said that in all sincerity, congratulations, you are now born again by the power and salvation of God, YHWH, through His son Yeshua, and now you are a son or daughter of the Most High God, and can receive all the power and privileges of such.
Which means? No more confessions to priests, unless you want to, as your High Priest is Yeshua so why confess to a man or woman? Confess to your Lord directly, ask directly!
No more Rabbi’s telling you to recite the same prayers over and over. All those who receive the Holy Spirit speak directly to YHWH through the Holy Spirit, of which Rabbi’s, CANNOT DO. They don’t know how to!
Only the Spirit of God allows this and teaches this. No man/woman, Priest or Rabbi can teach it. For this is the gift of YHWH through HaMashiach Yeshua! For the Lord said He would entice their (sanhedrin/apostate) jealousy and pour out His Spirit on those who believe.
ONLY those who receive the Holy Spirit of Elohim can speak directly with Elohim as Yeshua has said,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.” John 10: 7-18
Adonai, Father, blessing and praise be to the glorious name of YHWH my God and His son Yeshua HaMashiach!
