3 IMPORTANT TRUTHS FROM WHICH YOU MUST NOT BE MOVED
May 2, 2004 am
1. SIN IS SIN IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE AND ANY SIN THAT REMAINS IN YOUR LIFE WILL SEPARATE YOU FROM GOD BOTH NOW AND ETERNALLY
(John 8:34 KJV) Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
(John 8:35 KJV) And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
(Rom 5:12 KJV) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
(Rom 6:1 KJV) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2 KJV) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
(Rom 6:12 KJV) Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
(Rom 6:13 KJV) Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
(Rom 6:14 KJV) For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
(Rom 6:23 KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Heb 12:1 KJV) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
THE REAL SIN IS DOING WHAT WE WANT TO DO RATHER THAN ALLOWING JESUS CHRIST TO BE LORD OF OUR LIVES.
(James 1:14 NIV) but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.
(James 1:15 NIV) Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
IT IS A SIN TO NOT CONSIDER HIS LORSHIP WHEN YOU:
(James 4:17 KJV) Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
IF THE LORD SAYS DO IT AND YOU DON’T IT IS SIN
IF THE LORD SAYS DON’T AND YOU DO—IT IS SIN
IF SIN IS NOT A BIG DEAL—JESUS SUFFERED AND DIED FOR NOTHING
(1 John 1:7 KJV) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
(1 John 1:8 KJV) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
(1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1 John 1:10 KJV) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
(1 John 2:1 KJV) My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
(1 John 2:2 KJV) And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
SIN IS A BIG DEAL BECAUSE IT PRODUCES DEATH PRESENT SPIRITUAL DEATH AND FINALLY ETERNAL DEATH IN HELL.
2. THERE IS A HEAVEN TO GAIN AND A HELL TO AVOID
(Mat 5:22 KJV) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
(Mat 5:29 KJV) And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
(Mat 10:28 KJV) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
(2 Pet 2:4 NIV) For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
(2 Pet 2:9 KJV) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
