LIVING AS A NEW COVENANT BELIEVER

LIVING AS A NEW COVENANT BELIEVER

In spite of the clear presentation and ample explanation of this truth in the Bible (-that God has made the first or the old covenant obsolete), yet many believers today are still serving God according to the old written code (the Mosaic Law), thereby missing out on the amazing benefits and blessings of the New Covenant in the blood of Jesus Christ.

The New Covenant is not an extension, elongation, or modification of the Old Covenant, but an entirely New and Different Covenant. Sadly, many believers and ministers of God today are still confusing or mixing the New Covenant with the Old Covenant…

ENJOYING DAILY VICTORY OVER SIN (Part 2)

No believer regardless of his level of spiritual maturity is above temptation, or immune to temptation to sin. Until your soul (will, mind and emotions) and body have experienced full redemption at the return of Christ, you have not yet attained a state of sinlessness when you cannot sin or be tempted to sin.

It is important for you to understand this truth lest you get to a point in your spiritual journey when you erroneously think that you are now immune to sin or above temptations to sin, and then begin to despise or condemn any believer who falls into temptations…

ENJOYING DAILY VICTORY OVER SIN (Part 1)

It is the sin nature (natural inclination, propensity or tendency to do evil) we inherited through the natural birth that is responsible for all our sinful acts and habits. Therefore, until our sin nature is dealt with by destroying or removing it, it is absolutely useless or profitless struggling to overcome sins.

The individual sins or sinful acts you are struggling to overcome in your life are just the fruits, manifestations, or expressions of the root, the principle, or the power of sin dwelling in you (your sin nature). If you want to get rid of a tree producing evil fruits, the wise thing to do is to uproot it…

GOD IS NOT IMPUTING OUR SINS TO US

GOD IS NOT IMPUTING OUR SINS TO US

One of the most terrible lies of the devil regarding sin is that God is dealing with us today according to our sins. The devil wants you to accept and embrace curse, sickness, poverty, failure, or frustration as God’s punishments for your sins, or for the sins of your parents or ancestors.

Sadly, many believers and ministers of God today have accepted, adopted or subscribed to this terrible lie of the devil. What a terrible ignorance of the benefits or blessings of the finished work of Jesus Christ! Under the Old Covenant, God dealt with people according to their works, adherence, or obedience to the Mosaic Law. But now, under the New Covenant,..

THE TRUTHS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SIN (Part 2)

THE TRUTHS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SIN (Part 2)

The issue of sin is not peculiar to a gender, colour, tribe or race; it is common to all men. No one can evade sin, for we all were born with a sin nature and thus a perpetual slave to sin from birth.

Sin is not just what we do but it is who we are. The source, the root, or the principle of sin is in our hearts. The Scripture states that we are all “carnal, sold under sin.” (Rom. 7:14 NKJV). Your battle against sin is a lost one from the start; for you were defeated and enslaved by sin in the womb before you could ever have a chance to fight (Psa. 51:5)…

THE TRUTHS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SIN (Part 1)

The most used Greek word for “sin” in the New Testament is “hamartia” and it describes sin as “a principle or source of action, or an inward element producing acts; abstract for concrete; a governing principle or power, or an organized power acting through the members of the body.”

Though the seat of “sin” is in the will, the body is the organic instrument (“the body of sin” Rom. 6:6). This governing principle or power is often personified in the Scripture (Vine Expository Dictionary). The Greek word “hamartano” literally means “to miss the mark (and so not share in the prize);” figuratively, it means “to err, especially morally” (Strong’s Greek Dictionary)…
