Nobody does it better. Licence to Sin?

“Preaching we have been forgiven of all our future sins gives you license to sin”

Really?

Have you ever consider a very important truth?

How many things do you have to do to become a sinner?

One?

You are right. Except that it is not your sin. Its’ Adam’s. It is NOT yours. You are born a sinner. You came into this world a sinner. You came into the world already with a license to sin. Your nature is sin. You sin because you are a sinner. You sin because your nature is sin.

Whether you have license or not, you will sin. You don’t need license.

Here is another question? Why do you find it difficult to trust others? I guess the answer would be this… Other people can’t do the job better that you! What about God? Do you think He trusts the Law or Himself to be holy?

Dear friends, I want us to know before Jesus died, the Holy Spirit can only be on you or with you. He cannot be in you. So the control is still external, not internal.

Numbers 11:17

I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.

Judges 6:34

Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him.

2 Kings 2:15

The company of the prophets from Jericho, who were watching, said, “The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha.” And they went to meet him and bowed to the ground before him.

So only when Jesus died, the Holy Spirit could come into you. Why is that? It is because Jesus did not only forgave you. He took your sins once and for all. In the past the Holy Spirit does not remain on a person. It is only when Jesus came that the Spirit remained on a man. The reason the Spirit can remain on him is because He was the spotless and sinless Lamb of God. He was sinless. We on the other hand were not. We now because of the death of the Lamb are holy, blameless and without wrinkle. Jesus took all our sins away. Hebrews 10.

He became sin so that we become the righteousness of God in Christ. Whose righteousness? The Father’s! Now the Holy Spirit who was on us and with us, can finally be in us. Forever!

John 14:

17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

John 20:

21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

This was only possible after Jesus resurrected! The word tells us that He was raised for our justification.

Because our sins were taken away once and for all, the Holy Spirit now can come into us. God finally has influence on the inside. He can now trust His Spirit to change us. By His Spirit we are changed in our nature, we now lose our sinful nature, we have now gain a divine nature.

If there is yet one sin who has not been forgiven or not taken away, the Holy Spirit can only be on us NOT with us.

Do you think God is stupid? Forbid it! He trust Himself rather than our ability. You see the law’s power was weakened because of our sinful nature.

Romans 8:3

For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh.

Note the Law was powerless. It does even say it has 1% power It has 0% power.

So friend, when we preach to you that your sins are forgiven, past, present and future, we are saying that the license to sin is revoked. Now, there is a new guy in your body. The Spirit of Jesus.

Romans 8:

For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[a] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[b] And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirementof the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

So please stop telling people that Grace is license to sin. It is NOT. It is license to Kill. Your sinful nature is NOW killed off. You now are available fully to HIM because He is now in you. You also have the license to live too. Cause now the control is in the Father and NOBODY DOES IT BETTER than Jesus.

Peace.

    This is really good! Thanks so much for sharing. I love, “So please stop telling people that Grace is license to sin. It is NOT. It is license to Kill.”

    Thanks Simon. How can people read Romans 6:14 and not understand that under grace you are no longer under the dominion of sin? Grace is the ONLY remedy for sin.
