Did Jesus Die So We Can Now Have License To Sin, Without Guilt, And Go to Heaven?

OK, first of all, this is not my question, and it’s so full of built in errors I don’t really know where to begin. Furthermore, it’s a question which was asked of me quite recently and, in doing so, it meant that my teaching on Grace was being attacked. To counter that attack, I would recommend to you my two articles about Grace entitled: “The Grace Of Our Lord Jesus Christ – His True Grace – Not The Watered Down Religious Version!” and “For By Grace Are Ye Saved Through Faith – And That Not Of Yourselves – It Is The Gift Of God – Eph 2:8,” in order to understand where these people are coming from, and what their blasphemous attack on God’s Holy Word is all about.

Right, so what’s wrong with this question? Well, straight away there is no mention of Yashua Messiah’s resurrection within this question and we should never leave out mention of His resurrection when mentioning His death, for His death was only half of the arrangement. Second, there is this word ‘license’ and it then linked to the word ‘sin’. Hence their phrase: “A license to sin.”

Now where does this weird phrase come from? I have to admit I have heard it used before by various ravening wolves in pulpits, but I have never taken the trouble to check it out to see if it’s Scriptural, and, of course, it isn’t. Now there’s a surprise!! So why is it used if it’s not Scriptural? Easy, because vain puffed up men love their meaningless jargon expressions, especially in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. They love to put their egotistic personal stamp on the Holy Scriptures and, as I have said before, they do it because the Holy Word of God is too simple for them. OK, so as it’s not a Scriptural phrase, let’s have a look in my Concise Oxford Dictionary to see what the word ‘license’ means:

License – allow (person to do, thing to be done; rare); allow complete freedom to; grant permit to person; authorize use of premises for certain purpose, etc.(It also means to grant LEGAL permission to a person to do something UNLAWFUL E.g. Licenced to kill) (Brackets mine)

So let’s rewrite this question using one of the dictionary definitions: Did Jesus die so we can now have a permit to sin or to allow us complete freedom to sin, without guilt, and go to heaven? Now is this question dumb or is it mind numbingly dumb? I would suggest to you it’s both.

What we have to ask ourselves here is why would anyone want a licence or a permit to sin? If we were dealing with a lost or unsaved man or woman, would they require licences or permits to sin? Why don’t you try asking one of them and see what kind of a reply you get, that’s after they have stopped laughing at you and wondering if you were unhinged. OK, so we know that the lost and unsaved don’t need a licence or a permit to sin, for they manage very well without one.

That leaves us with the Cainite-Judeo-Christian religious perspective and whether or not they would require a licence or a permit to sin – well, would they, for many in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian religion seem to think they would, but why? What kind of Christian would even bring up such a subject? What kind of Christian rubs shoulders with those who would influence such thinking?

If we come genuinely to Yashua Messiah after The Father has called us, which means our repentance is genuine and our confession of sins is genuine, why would we seek a permit or licence to carry on sinning? Does any of this make any sense? No, it’s complete nonsense. So you see this question could and perhaps should have been worded like this: Should I repent and confess my sins so that I can then have a licence or permit to carry on sinning as I did in my old life, without guilt, and still go to heaven? Never mind that I had no guilt before in my old life anyway.

However, what this question is revealing to us is that we have people calling themselves Christians who are still struggling, through their own admission, with guilt. This means they see themselves as unforgiven and thereby not saved. How wretched is that?

Can you now see the inbuilt stupidity within this question? Why go to all the trouble of repentance, confession of sins (that is, all your sins, past, present and future) and baptism plus gifting of The Holy Spirit, if you want to carry on living as you did before? What would be the point of it and who would you be deceiving? As I think about all this I am actually becoming confused, and of course, that’s just what the Devil wants – confusion.

Moreover, why are Cainite-Judeo-Christians asking this silly question, and what else does it reveal to us? As I have already pointed out, they only mention Yashua Messiah’s death, not His resurrection and that’s because many Cainite-Judeo-Christians don’t understand what His resurrection achieved for them. OK, they believe everything was done at the cross, and yes, in part, it was all done. It was all done in terms of conquering death and sin, but what they don’t understand is the new Spiritual beings we become through His resurrection, that is, perfect in the Father’s sight and sinless beings that do not sin.

Now this is what they can’t get their heads around and that’s because they are not really Born Again. They are men of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion who practise Graceless Judaism – salvation by progress – salvation by process or by self-help, or by their own effort and endeavours, or commonly known as salvation by works. The Faith, Salvation, Grace thing is incomprehensible to them, they cannot understand it. In turn, it is through this blindness that they conjure up questions like the above.

Once more you will also notice the ‘without guilt’ bit in the middle of this question, which means they cannot even get their heads around this:

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. [who walk not after the flesh, but after The Spirit.]

Please note I have left off the second part of this verse because it’s missing in the Greek MSS, which means it was falsely added by the translators – it being interpolated from Romans 8:4 and unnecessarily repeated.

Romans 8:4 (KJV) That the righteousness of The Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after The Spirit.

Now what part of Romans 8:1 do these wretched people not understand, that is, there is now no further condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. If there is now no further condemnation, how can there be any guilt!? If there is guilt, there is something wrong with their birthing into Yashua Messiah. The guilty mindset is the fallen mindset and it behaves like Adam and Eve after their fall – they went and hid in guilt!

If we are born of God (Born Again) or born from above, we have been lifted out of guilt, for there is now no further condemnation laid upon us. So, this means we are sinless, even though our dead bodies of sin, sin. The thing is, is this a license to sin? Well, yes of course it is, if we are deluded and deceived liars and The Truth is not in us, but is that the case IF we are born of God? No, of course it is not the case, because The Truth, Yashua Messiah lives in us through His Holy Spirit POWER and the Holy Spirit cannot reside with LIVING sin.

So how would we be liars? We would be liars because there is no such thing as: “license to sin”, because as I have already proven, no one needs a licence to sin. If you want to sin, then just go right on ahead and sin, if that’s your DESIRE, and, of course, this is where we get to the nub of this issue, for that’s what it’s all about – DESIRE.

As Born Again believers, what should our DESIRE be, to sin or not to sin? Well, I hope it’s a DESIRE not to sin, and if that is the case, there is nothing wrong with your birthing in Yashua Messiah for your DESIRE not to sin proves that you love your Elder Brother in heaven. All this means is that you would hate to do something that Yashua Messiah would hate you to do. This also means we are endeavouring to please Him, but will this always be so? Not very likely if you’re the average man or woman who has been called out of this world by The Father to His Son and yet still lives in a dead body of sin. We will sin until we die; it’s inevitable, and we need to get this through our heads. I will reiterate, we’re still perfect and sinless in the Father’s sight even though our dead bodies of sin, sin. Paul explains it clearly and twice so we get it through our heads:

Romans 7:17 (KJV) NOW THEN IT IS NO MORE I THAT DO IT, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:20 (KJV) Now if I do that I would not, IT IS NO MORE I THAT DO IT, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Now, if after all this we’re still looking for a ‘licence to sin’, because we want to sin, what is this revealing about our birthing into Yashua Messiah? If our DESIRE is to look for a licence to sin, what is this saying about us, and what is it saying about our repentance, our confession, and our baptism? Are we phoneys and fakes? If so, who are we fooling? Were all these things a charade or a façade to hide our real intentions of being or becoming a fake Christian? What would be the point?

OK, let’s leave out the ‘license to sin’ thing for a minute and just deal with the sin issue. What, if after baptism, our DESIRE is to carry on sinning, what would be the point of getting baptised? As I said previously, we can carry on sinning without any need to for baptism, so what is their point in the use of this stupid phrase?

Their point is this – they are looking at the whole thing through the eyes of Grace Killers, for they cannot comprehend the loving relationship of that between a Born Again son or daughter of God and their Redeemer, Yashua Messiah. They think it’s all about obedience to The Law, and if we speak of Grace, they will immediately think we are looking for excuses to sin – which is a judgemental lie. This is the mindset of Pharisees, for they behaved in the same way when Yashua Messiah confronted them with His Grace filled message, two thousand years ago and nothing has changed. These Cainite-Judeo-Christians behave and believe in exactly the same way.

You see when your salvation is down to you and your efforts this is how you will behave and view Grace. There is no room for Grace in their salvation-by-works world. In fact, Grace, from this legalistic Cainite-Judeo-Christian religious perspective, is a complete mystery to them, for it’s not on their radar screens and in reality it doesn’t exist to them. It cannot exist, for if it were to exist their Law based world would dissolve before their very eyes and all the reasons for their Cainite-Judeo-Christian religious existence would disappear. They would be like captains without ships and totally surplus to requirements.

Finally, I won’t go into detail about their nonsensical going to heaven business as I cover this subject in detail in my articles: “Are Christians Going to Heaven?” and “When Christians Die, Do They Instantly “Go To Be With The Lord? – Parts 1 & 2”. Needless to say, Christians going to heaven is as erroneous an idea as that of us needing a ‘license to sin’. Where do they get this stuff? Oh yes, at the bottom of an empty cornflakes packet LOL!

PS Please note, this edited article is ten+ years old.

Are You a 21st Century Foolish Galatian?

So how can anyone be a “Foolish Galatian” in the 21st century? They were just a first century phenomenon weren’t they? And only a serious problem for Paul and all the other Grace filled Assemblies in Galatia, surely? How can there be such a problem today? This must be nonsense, I hear you say. Well, it’s not as nonsensical as you might think and, in order to get a full understanding of what it’s all about, we need to take a look at Galatians to gain a better knowledge of what Paul was having to deal with.

We also need to know how the: “Justification through obedience to The Law” problem, for Grace filled and saved people, has never gone away. This vile evil concept is still with us today and do not err in your thinking, by making light of it:

Galatians 3:1 (KJV) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not ‘obey’ (a corrupt translation – should read “you who have not been convinced of or persuaded by:-”) The Truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (Brackets and italics mine)

Galatians 3:1 (Amplified Version) O you poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom—right before your very eyes—Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified?

From the Amplified Version we get a better insight into how dumb and stupid these people were and how dumb and stupid modern Galatian people are as well. Let’s look at verse 2 for our proof and evidence:

Galatians 3:2 (KJV) This only would I learn of you, Received ye The Spirit by the works of The Law, or by The Hearing of Faith?

Galatians 3:2 (Amplified Version) Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive The [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying The Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [The Message of The Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a Law of Rituals or from a Message of Faith?]

So here’s a question for all you blasphemers out there who think you can be saved by OBEDIENCE to The Commandments: Did you receive the gift of The Holy Spirit as a result of obeying The Commandments or by hearing The Message of Faith and BELIEVING it?

Let’s put this another way: Did you do anything or contribute anything by way of obedience to The Commandments in order to receive this free undeserved gift? If you did, let’s hear about it ‘cos I love a good laugh at the expense of vain puffed-up fools who think they can earn their own salvation by obedience to The Commandments.

Paul then begins to cement his case:

Galatians 3:3 (KJV) Are ye so foolish? having begun in The (Holy) Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (Brackets mine)

Here again we can see how these stupid people had begun in The Holy Spirit which means that they were called by The Father to His Son by The Holy Spirit, but then said: “No thanks, we know a better way!!” And here is the first example of this evil mind set:

John 6:65-66 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that many of His Learners (disciples) went back, and walked no more with Him.

These numb skull stiff necked people were just like The Galatians – they were precursors of those that Paul had to deal with later on. They thought they knew a better way, a way based upon their own initiative and motivation, their own efforts and their own vain imaginings of salvation under their own fuel and steam and not to mention their own terms and conditions. These bods had no use for The Holy Spirit, why would they, they were self-sufficient via their own righteousness through obedience to The Law – The Commandments.

Move forward a decade or so, to Paul’s time, and we then have these same kinds of vile wretched people who thought that The Holy Spirit’s saving Power was not enough i.e. NOT GOOD ENOUGH for them, can you believe that? So they re-invoked The Law – The Commandments, and obedience to same, in order to become ‘more righteous’ (chuckle, chuckle, chuckle) than their brothers and sisters living under Yashua Messiah’s Glorious Saving Grace being led by The Holy Spirit.

When we stop and think about this, it can only be summed up as gross mind-numbing blasphemous stupidity. What is even more mind-numbing and amazing is The Truth that these same types of stupid people are still with us today and yet, at the same time, profess to be Christians and/or followers of The Way – Yashua Messiah – how does that work!!??

Let’s be clear about this because elsewhere Paul makes it very plain:

Galatians 2:16 (KJV) Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of The Law, but by The Faith of Jesus Christ, even (so that) we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by The Faith of Christ, and not by the works of The Law: for by the works of The Law shall no flesh be justified. (Brackets and emphasis mine)

Now we must fully comprehend the points Yashua Messiah is explaining here, through Paul:

Point 1) No man is justified i.e. made righteous by the works of The Law. This includes obedience to The Ten Commandments. How do we know that? Easy, because Sabbath Day observance is no longer required under Grace. Everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who have entered into Yashua Messiah’s Sabbath Rest = everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who believe totally in Him for their salvation. See Hebrews Chapters 3 and 4 and then read it and internalise it.

Point 2) Mankind is justified only by Yashua Messiah’s Faith i.e. HIS FAITH, NOT OUR FAITH. Yashua Messiah gives us Faith, along with Grace, so that we can believe. Without the free gifts of His Faith and His Grace we would not be able to believe and then build our faith for rewards only upon that Foundation.

Point 3) We are then justified by His Faith and Paul makes that very clear with his statement: “That we might be justified by The Faith of Christ.” Get this clear in your minds, folks, and written on your hearts: YOUR FAITH does not feature in this arrangement, so YOUR FAITH does not feature at all in your salvation – period.

OK, let’s move on, because Paul now starts to lay it on the line:

Galatians 2:17 (KJV) But if seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also were found to be sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? Let it not be!

So, if we claim to be justified in, through, and by Yashua Messiah’s Sacrifice, His Faith and His Grace and are also found to be sinners, what is going on? Can sinners ever be justified? Can sinners enter The Kingdom of God? Can blemished and spotted bridal gowns attend The Wedding Feast? Nay, God forbid. Hence Paul asks can Yashua Messiah be a pastor of sin? Yet what points out our sin? What reveals our sin? What condemns us for our sins? The Law and The Commandments reveal and point out our sins and then condemns us. So is Yashua Messiah a Pastor of The Law and thereby condemning us or is He a Pastor of Truth, Love, Mercy, Redemption, Forgiveness, Faith and Grace?

Let’s remind ourselves:

Romans 8:1 (KJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus.

If there is now no condemnation for those IN Yashua Messiah where has The Law gone and what need is there for The Law and/or The Commanndments? The Law/Commandments or The Whole Law and the ensuing condemnation go hand in hand, as does The Law and obedience, so if there is now no more condemnation how can there be any Law over us? How can there be any need for obedience to The Law or The Commandments if they are no longer over us and condemning us?

Answers on the back of a postage stamp, thank you.

Does God HAVE a NAME?

Now is that a stupid question or could it even be a really STUPID question? I say this because the name of God or the subject of the name(s) of God get’s more, so called, Christians bent out of shape than any other Biblical topic that I know of. Gnat straining and camel swallowing doesn’t even come near to this storm in teacup subject.

I also say this because I have recently gone head to head on social media with a Judaising mongrel dog wretch who obsesses about this very issue. In fact he was so bent out of shape that I had to block him for his own good, that is, before he had a stroke or a heart attack, such was his unhinged, unbalanced emotional and fanatical attachment to this non-issue. Now don’t get me wrong here for it is important to know the name(s) of God or, better, to KNOW which God we are refering to when we say God or whether it’s the GODHEAD of God with God as in the beginning (Please note that the Godhead is a Duality of two distinct Spiritual Beings not a Trinity nor a Mono-god):

Genesis 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning God (H430 the Hebrew name Elohim – plural) created the heaven and the earth. (Brackets mine)

OK so straight away in the FIRST VERSE of the Holy Scriptures we are told a name of God – some might say it’s the name of the Godhead for we are dealing with the Hebrew name Elohim which is the plural of the singular Hebrew word Eloah. And from Strong’s Concordance we get:

God – H430 – elohiym – el-o-heem’ – Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God[head]; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. (Square brackets mine)

This means we are not dealing with one God and we have the Hebrew name ELOHIM. We then we get:

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And God H430 (The Hebrew name Elohim – plural) said, LET US make man in OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS: (Emphasis and brackets mine)

Now believe it or not, some numb skulls interpret this verse as a singular God speaking to the angels which is utter nonsense as angels cannot create and were never created themselves by God to be creators. So let’s get this golden nugget of Truth firmly set in our minds and from Strong’s once more:

Angels – H4397 – mal’âk – mal-awk’ – From an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically of God, that is, an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher): – ambassador, angel, king, messenger.

There we have it, angels are primarily messengers, NOT creators and nowhere in Scripture does it say that angels were ever creators.

So as an early sum up we now have one name of God – “Elohim” and the first name mentioned in the Holy Scriptures and because of this fact should this name take pre-eminence over any other names? We shall see.

Right, what other names do we have in the Holy Scriptures? This name:

Genesis 2:4 (KJV) These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that The LORD God made the earth and the heavens. (Emphasis mine)

What have we got here? for this is the first verse in the Holy Scriptures where we find the name or Title: “The LORD God” so who is this LORD God? To answer that I will copy and paste another verse:

Genesis 2:16 (KJV) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of The Garden thou mayest freely eat: (Emphasis mine)

Here we can plainly see that this “LORD God” communicated with Adam – the man. So what? I hear you say. Ah but this piece of information is crucial in identifying this “LORD God” who also has a different Hebrew name and from Strong’s once more:

LORD – H3068 – yehôvâh – yeh-ho-vaw’ – From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: – Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

God – H430 – elohiym – el-o-heem’ – Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God[head]; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. (Square brackets mine)

Again, what have we got here? for this God who is still Elohim – plural has another name – a second name, to accompany His first name – God. This means we have Yehovah God or Jehovah God which, as we can see, also means The Self-Existent or The Eternal.

Moreover we now need to know who this Yehovah God is and I have already revealed that He spoke to Adam and gave him certain commands. So if we now go straight to the New Testament we will discover who this Yehovah God is:

John 5:37 (KJV) And The Father Himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape. (Emphasis mine)

There we have it from Yashua Messiah’s very lips. Up until that point in time in the first century no one had ever seen or heard The Father – so who spoke and commanded Adam? Answer: Yehovah God, and who was this Yehovah God? Answer: Yashua Messiah as God before He became flesh – The I AM who spoke to Moses and the Melchisedek who spoke with Abraham.

Here are some more names of God:

Yehovah God (ELOHIM) who became Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ or Joshua Anointed) is The Way and there is no other way for He is THE WAY, THE LIFE, THE TRUTH, THE LIGHT, THE I AM, THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE WORD or THE MIND, THE SON OF MAN, THE SECOND ADAM, THE COMFORTER, THE ADVOCATE, THE ETERNAL HIGH PRIEST, THE KING OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (Justice) THE KING OF PEACE (SALEM).

However, this is only half of the story for here are some of his unhinged comments:

“You don’t need the bible? It seems you need it more than anyone I’ve ever talked to. Why won’t you read us Psalms 83:18? Satan got your tongue?”

First of all I did not say to him that I did not need The Bible, I said that in this instance I did not need the OT or the Old Covenant (his satanic perversions of what I had said). Here, too, we can see the focus of his obsession – one verse of Old Covenant Holy Scripture in Psalm 83 after I had explained to him that it was Old Covenant, but that Truth didn’t register in his mind at all. He then followed it with this:

“Psalms 83:18 MAY PEOPLE KNOW THAT YOU WHOSE NAME IS “JEHOVAH”, YOU ALONE ARE THE MOST HIGH OVER ALL THE EARTH That’s Jehovah, YHWH in Hebrew. You are afraid of his name, because you are the embodiment of Satan himself, and Satan cannot stand his name. You are evil through and through…..”

These blind guides are buried in the Old Testament and cannot see the New Testament. In fact they cannot see any further than the ends of their noses. However, I did not push him further as it would have been a waste of my time, but it is quite obvious that he does not see Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) as the Yahovah God of the Old Testament or that when we mention His Name, that is, Yashua Messiah or Jesus Christ we are then directly referring to the Yahovah God of the Old Testament and thereby SAYING HIS NAME!! There we are – simples, but too simples for him.
