Born of God / Slaves of Sin

 

  One of the steps in order to be Saved is to believe Jesus is the Christ.

  • I JOHN 5:1: Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

  So what is being Born of God?

  • I JOHN 4:7: Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. So if you love one another and you believe Jesus is the Christ, then you are born of God. So then it sounds logical to say if a person is Saved than that person is born of God.
  • I JOHN 3:9: Whosoever is born of God DOES NOT COMMIT SIN; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

  Whoever has been born of God does not knowingly and willingly commit sin. If you believe Jesus is the Christ you are born of God and if your born of God you do not knowingly and willingly sin. So we can truthfully say, If you believe in Christ you do not knowingly and willingly sin.

  • I JOHN 3:6: Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
  • I JOHN 5:18: We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

  This is why you must prepare yourself (with the help of Jesus) before you are truly Saved. So you will not be so easily tempted to sin.  2 Peter 1:10 For instance, once you quit smoking, after a week or two, it will be a lot harder to be tempted to smoke, but if it's within 4 days it's easier to be tempted. But once you are prepared and ready to accept Jesus Christ as you Savior and Lord, Satan will already know he can't touch you. (see Chapter Become Perfect/ Will not Stumble )

  • JOHN 8:34: Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

  Aren't we to be servants to Jesus and not to sin?

  • ROMANS 6:6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Lets see if i got that right. John 8:34 says if you sin your a slave of sin, and Romans 6:6 says we should no longer be slaves of sin. So in other words, we are to no longer sin.
  • ROMANS 6:20: For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. or when you were yet in your sins you were not righteous.
  • ROMANS 6:17: But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have OBEYED from the heart that form of doctrine (Bible) which was delivered you.18: Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

  You are freed from sin, when you first OBEY the Word of God, Once you have OBEYED the Word of God then you are free from sin, thus being under GRACE (see Chapter on Grace)

  • ROMANS 6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? If you continue to commit willful sin, your wages will be death (Hell). But if you continue in obedience, your wages will be life eternal (Heaven). Straight and NARROW is the way, you would be wise to remember that, its not EASY

  How do you know if you know Jesus Christ, and how do you know if someone else knows Jesus Christ?

  • I JOHN 2:3: And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4: He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (click HERE to see what the Bible teaches are His Commandments)

  Anyone who says I am Saved and keepeth not His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in that person. Whosoever saith with their lips, I am Saved and I am going to Heaven and yet do not which is written in the Word of God, is a liar and will not see Heaven. Only those who obey the Word of God will enter into Heaven. People, i do not say this, But the Words of God say this, Do you not believe God ?

  • LUKE 6:46: And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
  • MATTHEW 7:22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.(sin)
  Do you still knowingly and willingly commit sins which you know full well are sinful, yet do them anyways? How are you not working iniquity?


In His Holy and Precious Name, Jesus Christ
