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

  Arn'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 sin, your wages will be death (Hell). But if you continue in obedience, your wages will be life eternal (Heaven)

  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.

  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 Word of God says this, Do you not believe God ? Those who keep His Commandments, Know Jesus Christ. Those who say they know Jesus Christ and do not keep His Commandments are LIARS, they claim they know Him, but their deeds are evil and wicked. What are His Commandments? To believe on Jesus and to Love One Another. Woe to this generation which are quick to say with their mouths "I know Jesus" yet they fail to Love One Another, these are LIARS and do not know the TRUTH.

  • 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)
Woe to this generation indeed, for who does not call Jesus "Lord" and yet still continues to knowingly and willingly commit iniquity, and they know full well it is sinful but freely chooses to commit the sin anyways.

Who according to Scriptures are the children of the devil?

  • 1Jn_3:10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Anyone, who does not do that which is Righteous, is according to this Inspired by God Scritpure is a child of the devil. Easy really, those who do righteousness are children of God, those who willingly do unrighteousness are children of the devil. Which the following verse confirms this teaching:

  • 1Jn_3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

So if a person looks to Jesus for His Strength and Power against every temptation, Jesus can help a person destroy sin out of that persons life. Tell me. What sin do you do that you can't cease from? YOU CAN cease from it, look to Jesus to help you.

Those who believe Jesus is the Son of God are Born of God. Scriptures teaches this. Those who are Born of God does not knowingly and willingly commit sins. Scriptures teaches that as well. Now it is not to hard to understand why Jesus said narrow and difficult is the path that leads to life everlasting and a very few will actually find it. Too many people say this path is impossible. But True Christians know that with Jesus, all things are possible.

In His Holy and Precious Name, Jesus Christ
