Everyone has sinned but not everyone lives in sin – not every person is a slave of sin.
Committing sin is being a slave of sin. Living in sin is being a slave of sin
Everyone has Sinned but Not Everyone Lives in Sin (Slave of Sin)
Romans 3:23 Everyone has sinned
The word used in the above verse is ‘sinned’; past tense not present. This means that everyone sinned in the past.
How did we sin in the past?
We are descendants of Adam therefore through Adam we all sinned
Rom 5:12: Therefore, 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
Every person who has not repented the sins of their fathers/generation/bloodline, the sins and curses of their forefathers are on them. This is what is called generational/forefathers curses.
Every person without Jesus Christ is in sin. Therefore we were sinners before Jesus Christ dwelt in us.
When we come to Jesus Christ, at the Cross, the old man is crucified and the body of sin done away with – sin is done away with
Rom 6:6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin
Even Adam sin is washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ. Thus sin does not reign in us, we do not serve sin thus not slaves of sin – sin does not have dominion over us
Rom 6:14: For sin shall not have dominion over you
What does this mean? This means that sin does not rule us, does not makes us its slave, we are not slaves of sin.
A slave is a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them
Rom 6:16: Do you not know, that to whom you yield yourselves slaves to obey, you are that ones’ slave whom you obey
If sin forces you to obey it, you are a slave of sin. And every person who commits sin is a slave of sin.
John 8:34: Jesus answered them, ‘Truly Truly I saw to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin’
In Jesus Christ we are freed from being slaves of sin to being slaves of righteousness (Rom 6:16) thus we do not live in sin but in righteousness.
The story of woman caught in adultery is a picture of us being slaves of sin before coming to Jesus Christ. When you come to Jesus Christ, He forgives us our sins and says unto us, ‘go sin no more’ (John 8:1-11) thus you live righteously.
You cannot meet/see Jesus Christ and Him dwell in you yet continue living in sin, committing sin.
If you claim to have Jesus Christ dwelling in you and yet living in sin, a slave of sin – you are a liar.
1John 1:6: If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not practice the truth
Every person who has come to Jesus Christ and still living in sin is disobeying Jesus Christ command to be holy and righteous. That is a rebellious disobedient stubborn person.
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry (1Sam 15:23)
True Jesus Christ Bride is Holy and righteous not living in sin – not slaves of sin but slaves of righteousness
The question is;
Can a person live righteously on earth?
Yes! A person can live righteously on earth
Jesus is a Man who lived on earth for 30 (plus) years with no sin
Enoch lived on earth righteously
Noah lived righteously
Elijah was a righteous man
Job was righteous
(There are many more people in the scripture who lived righteously on earth)
This means that a human being can live righteously on earth – you and I can live righteously on earth.
Every person who tells you that on earth you must live in sin, commit sin is a liar.
Every person who comes truly in repentance and believes in Jesus Christ with all his/her heart soul and mind, immediately all his/her sins are washed away and from that minute the person has power and dominion over sin to live righteously for the rest of his/her life on earth.
You need Jesus Christ and His power to live holy and righteous
Do you know why people come to Jesus Christ yet continue living in sin, committing sin?
Because they accept Him but deny the power. Therefore they only have a form of godliness living in sin
2Tim 3:2-6: For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with various lusts.
Many professing Christians today have a form of godliness but denying the power. Their life and ways reveal sin, testify of darkness. They profess with their tongues Jesus Christ but their deeds and life testifies of Satan – they know the truth but they deny it.
You cannot be holy outside but what comes in from you is filthy – it is hypocrisy. You cannot be holy inside but outside testifies of Satan – it is hypocrisy. See a temple whom Jesus is dwelling is holy inside and outside.
Sin cannot be overcome until you accept the power for the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. Accept the power for you to be delivered – set free from sin.
Jesus delivers every person who truly comes to Him, sets you free from dominion and chains of sin thus you cannot be a slave of sin, live in sin, continue sinning. Are you delivered?
Every person living in sin needs to truly believe Jesus Christ and His power with all his/her heart soul and mind to be set free from sin – from being a slave of sin. If you are living in sin, you are still in slavery in Egypt needing deliverance at the cross of Jesus Christ.
Many under slavery of sin use the words, ‘everybody sins’, ‘no one is righteous’, etc to justify their living in sin – for them to continue living in sin, committing sin yet having a form of godliness. This is a Satan device against humanity. Flee from these with a form of godliness but denying the power (2 Tim 3:5).
There is a highway where Satan and demons cannot be found – the Highway of Holiness
Isaiah 35:8-9: And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The Highway of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for others: Whoever walks the road, although a fool cannot go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it, it shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there
In above verse, ‘lion’ refers to Satan, the roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). ‘Ravenous beasts’ are demons also called ‘evil beasts’
In the Highway of Holiness because Satan and demons cannot be found in it, there is no sin, curses, diseases, tumor, cancer, poverty, slavery, etc. This is the highway Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Judah, Elijah, Samuel, etc walked in and you too can walk in it if you make the choice today
This highway of Holiness is Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
It is said, ‘the unclean shall not pass over it’ this means Highway of Holiness is not for people living in sin; slaves of sin
Highway of Holiness is the difficult way leading to life which few find
Mt 7:13-14: Enter you by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life and there are few who find it.
There are few who find the Highway of Holiness thus many are perishing – going to hell not heaven. Do not let any person lie to you that we are all going to heaven.
Are you in the Highway of Holiness?
Some people say ‘Jesus loves sinners’ – it is not scriptural but a Satan lie. Jesus come to call sinners to repentance (Lk 5:32) for Him to wash their sins in His blood, give them power over sin to live holy and righteously.
If Jesus loves sinners, why are sinners in hell? Satan is a liar.
1Cor 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Gal 5:19-21 Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Heaven is Holy only for holy and righteous people – it is for sinners who repent, live holy and righteous. Unrepentant sinners who come to Jesus Christ yet continue sinning are in hell.
Jesus Christ Bride is Holy and righteous not living sin, committing sin, slave of sin and this is the Bride awaiting rapture
Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin needing deliverance
Everyone has sinned but not everyone lives in sin, is a slave of sin
You and I can live righteously on earth because Jesus lived, Enoch lived, Noah lived, Elijah lived, Job lived, etc – Make the decision now to live holy
The fear of Lord is to depart from evil (Prov 16:6)
Depart from sin. Every person in sin means that s/he does not fear the Lord
Be holy for I AM holy (1Pet 1:16)
Go sin no more
Jesus is coming
Repent Repent Repent
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
