          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    REGENERATION IN JESUS CHRIST, NOT RECOVERY

    Brothers and sisters, Lord Jesus teaches us all that the first step of dealing with sin in our lives is to Repent.  

     

    Most of us know this, but others still need to understand and learn that repentance has nothing to do with condemnation, because God never condemns His people: Jhn 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    Rom 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.

    Walk: To regulate our lives, to live habitually in conduct, character, manner of life, following consistently after the example of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: Mat 16:24 - Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    1Pe 2:21 - For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

     

    Repentance has nothing to do with losing one’s salvation or fellowship with God: Jhn 10:28 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    Heb 13: 5Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    Jde 1:24 - Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy…

    Fellowship, for the believer with God is eternal and cannot be broken, seeing that God lives in His people: Jhn 17:23 - I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

    Jhn 17:26 - And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

    Jhn 14:16 - And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 - Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

     1Co 3:16 - Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

     

    Repentance is not about asking for God’s forgiveness over and over, Lord Jesus has taken care of all of our sin, in that He died bodily and shed His sinless blood on the cross to pay for our sins, and rose again.

    Amp1 John 5: 18We know [with confidence] that anyone born of God does not habitually sin; but He (Jesus) who was born of God [carefully] keeps and protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.

     

    Dearly beloveds, it is very important to understand what repentance is not so that we do not insult and displease God in ignorance of all He has accomplished for us through His Son our only Saviour Jesus Christ. Just as we may have saturated our minds in sin, so we must take time to saturate our minds with the healing truth of God’s word out of love and trust in Him.

    Love, serola

    REGENERATION IN JESUS CHRIST, NOT RECOVERY

    2 John 1: 7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    Receive: to closely associate with one's self as companion, attendant.

    He that biddeth: to affirm, approve, welcome, encourage.

    God speed: to rejoice, be glad, to rejoice exceedingly, to be well, thrive.

    Partaker: to enter into fellowship, join one's self to an associate, make one's self a sharer or partner.

    The Bible of and by God, dearly beloveds, we know, is given to us the spiritual people of Lord Jesus Christ. We are absolutely not part spiritual and part natural- we are best understood as regenerated people made spiritual by God, but who still retain our natural bodies, (body of sin), which bodies shall be changed at the coming of Christ, to be like His. Nevertheless, until then, we are clearly instructed by God, to live according to the Spirit not by the flesh or our old dead carnal nature. Gal 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Amp:  1 Cor 3:1However, brothers and sisters, I could not talk to you as to spiritual people, but [only] as to [a]worldly people [dominated by human nature], mere infants [in the new life] in Christ! 2I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Even now you are still not ready. 3You are still [b]worldly [controlled by ordinary impulses, the sinful capacity]. 

     

    Amp: Heb 5: 13For everyone who lives on milk is [doctrinally inexperienced and] unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a spiritual infant. 14But solid food is for the [spiritually] mature, whose senses are trained by practice to distinguish between what is morally good and what is evil.

     

    Gal 6:1 - Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    Fault: a lapse or deviation from truth and uprightness, a sin, misdeed.

    Ye which are spiritual: regenerated, non-carnal, one who is filled with and governed by the Spirit of God.

    Restore: to render, i.e. to fit, sound, complete, to mend (what has been broken or rent), to repair, complete, equip, put in order, arrange, adjust: ethically: to strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be.

     

    The Lord, holy people, has appointed us in this work together of restoration for one another whenever it is needed.

     

    Milk is good for babies, but at some point, brethren, we know that meat is absolutely necessary if the baby is to attain proper growth to adulthood. Initially this study started with one addiction, but highlighted others along the way. God calls all of them sin. No Christian is a victim of sin and absolutely nothing in scripture supports a believer being victims of sin. For the brother or sister that is ready for the meat of the word-Lord Jesus shows His people the way out by His word and by His power.

    Love, serola

    REGENERATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, NOT RECOVERY

    Moving forward towards the end of this study, holy people, although most of us know this, but not all yet, God is in eternal full control of His church, absolutely not ever me, you, or us.  There are a few amongst us who are slow to accept/believe that God alone is in charge of His church, or who feel in error, that God is out of touch and too uptight in some of His commands regarding sin. Therefore, such persons in error think, although they might be Christians, that in light of so-called modern times, and/or science so-called, Christians should get in step with the world, culture, science etc. instead of the absolute word of God.

     

    Those claiming to be Christians, but seek friendship with the world and are unrepentant, God sees all such as His enemies, and adversaries: Jas 4:4 - Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 

     

    However, dearly beloveds, God instructs any Christian who in error thinks this way to repent. God commands that true repentance is always reflected in consistent obedience to Him: 2 Cor 6:14 Stop forming inappropriate relationships with unbelievers. Can right and wrong be partners? Can light have anything in common with darkness? 15Can Christ agree with the devil? Can a believer share life with an unbeliever?

    16Can God's temple contain false gods? Clearly, we are the temple of the living God. As God said, "I will live and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people."

    17The Lord says, "Get away from unbelievers. Separate yourselves from them. Have nothing to do with anything unclean. Then I will welcome you."

    18The Lord Almighty says, "I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters.

    Love, serola
