Best lies are 99% true

**I DO NOT AGREE 100% WITH THIS PICTURE, READ WHY**

The problem with this post is its not identifying what part of you makes the mistakes.

One of the “famous” texts used to keep us bound in our sins is Romans 7 where Paul discusses the war that now rages on inside the mind after the death of the old self in baptism  (which is explained in Romans 6). What is over looked is this: Romans 7:17-18 NASB

So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, (IT KEEPS GOING) that is, IN MY FLESH; for the willing is present in me

(Matthew 26:41 NASB

Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; {the spirit is willing}, but the flesh is weak.”)

This is so dangerous to ignore. What is also dangerous is not to continue in Paul’s speaking and explaining the process of new birth of who YOU truly are in Romans 8. YOU are NOT your flesh. You are (if Christ actually lives in you) SPIRIT and you are to be led by the Spirit not the flesh.

Romans 8:9 NASB

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

So if your FLESH makes mistakes God’s mercy in your weakness is there, but the mercy is for your remembrance of what He HAS done, and who you are.

2 Peter 1:1-8 explains the qualities you ought to have for godliness and this next verse explains what happens when you don’t.

2 Peter 1:9 NASB

For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having {forgotten} his purification from his former sins.

This is why we are to continually renew our minds, Romans 12:1, keep our mind on things above, Colossians 3, and encourage one another as long as it’s called TODAY

Hebrews 3:13 NASB

But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

Sin is UNBELIEF. THIS IS THE ROOT OF ALL SIN. EVER. UNBELIEF.

Hebrews 3:19 NASB

So we see that they were not able to enter because of unbelief.

Do not bind yourself to the unbelief in what Jesus has already done. You are NOT your flesh. You have to stop SAYING “I make mistakes” or “I sin everyday”

Matthew 12:37 NASB

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

1 John 3:9 NASB

No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

YOUR OLD MAN, OLD SELF, FLESH which HAS been crucified with Christ is the sinner, YOU are born again of SPIRIT.

John 3:5-7 NASB

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

Romans 8:14 NASB

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Separate yourself from your flesh. Speak LIFE and TRUTH over who you are. KNOW who YOU are and CLAIM THIS TRUTH. That old self is dead. Be born again. Do not be yoked to slavery again.

Galatians 5:1 NASB

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.

These partial truths will destroy. Whatever you bind (hold onto) on earth you bind in heaven. If you claim to be the sinner then you will perish with the sinners. Even if you go to church.

Matthew 7:22-23 NASB

Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me , you who practice lawlessness .’

Jesus is not a liar, He warned YOU to let go of the lawless man, and be born again of HIM. This is how you KNOW Him.

The best lies are 99% true. His mercies are new everyday and His love never fails, but YOU Child of God do not make mistakes your old man did, let them die and live in Christ.
