Through the work of the Cross Yahushua broke the power of sin and set His people free. To Sin now is to choose against our new nature – the new Creation which in Christ was created in true righteousness and holiness, with His divine nature, under the grace of God, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and with great and precious promises – as stated “SIN WILL HAVE NO DOMINION OVER YOU” (Rom 6,14). That is our new place, positioned free from sin. Sin still works through the flesh, and the world with temptations, but In Christ we are to have dominion over it, not it over us. “How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?” (Rom 6,2)
Now there is God’s part and there is our part to play. God has positioned us free and given us His grace, His Spirit, His word, His divine nature. We access this by FAITH, believing trusting & obeying, through deep repentance and total surrender, abiding in Christ and His word, prayer & worship – victory is ours.
It is God’s will that we do not sin “My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin.” … but …. “if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Yahushua Mashiach / Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins,” (1John2,2-3) …”If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
If we choose to side with sin and continue in it, that is a very dangerous path that in the end leads to Hellfire, to eternal recompense for abusing His grace. “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” (Rom 6,16) So let us follow only His holy way …”But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you OBEYED from the HEART (faith) that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action (AMP)).” (Rom 6, 17-18)
– 2Peter 1,2-4 … “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Yahushua our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
