For sin shall not have dominion over you: for all of you are not under the law but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know all of you not, that to whom all of you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servant s all of you are to whom all of you obey; whether of sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:14 – 16
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
We have heard the call to come back to God’s Law, the comments are, “but we do not live under the Law, but unto Grace.” “Yes,” we do and the Salvation which comes with Grace is the beginning of our calling to work out our Salvation.
But how many, once they have received salvation, understand what is involved in working it out daily?
Here is the beginning of an understanding of what tools are needed to work out our Salvation under Grace by recognizing and developing God’s Laws, (Ten Commandments) as a template to recognize, understand and incorporate how to continue developing a personal relationship first with Yeshua and then His Father. I will explain further in the next section of this article.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
The following is an excerpt from the article”Lets Shortcut,” published May 15, 2020. Our current society is fixated on receiving gratification instantly. This thought process has infiltrated our Assemblies. This form of mindset becomes a deep weapon for Satan, drawing many into a situation where they depend on physical attributions rather than spiritual teachings from the Holy Spirit. Fast-tracking our spiritual beliefs is dangerous as it opens up the Assembly to deceptions and false teachings.
Jesse Penn-Lewis, in her book the unabridged copy of “War On The Saints”, published some 120 years past in collaboration with Evan Roberts predicted and identified how this would occur because of misinformation and lack of understanding of who the enemy is.
The question here is, “What happens to an individual who is born again? Does Scripture teach, the new birth includes automatic expulsion of demons? (Ephesians 2:1-3) clearly teaches all human beings are under the influence of the evil one, and his influence over mankind is exercised by evil spirits. We all were in this condition.
But in the new birth, the infant believer has his sins forgiven. Our spirit, formerly dead in trespasses and sin, is made alive by the spirit of God. We now begin to have the power to overcome the very things which enslaved us. But nowhere does Scripture or experience teach the new birth automatically eliminates demonic influence or bondage, or all of the carryovers of the old man such as tempers, moods, lusts, envyings, selfishness, prejudice, naming a few.
These are some of the areas in our lives which should be first recognized and then rooted out according to our template which will assist in identifying them. The following link to “Are You Coping or Dealing With Life” published April 19, 2020, should give further understanding of how to use the template properly in their removal.”
Now being in the right mindset it becomes important for us to understand how our enemy operates against us. Recall once we are freed from Satan’s lies, bondage and slavery we instantly are known by him and his minions, (prior to this you were nothing to him,) and now become targets to retrieve.
The Parable of the Sower, explains the different temptations Satan uses to recapture some who were freed.
“When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the wayside.” Matthew 13:19 KJV.
Now we can begin to understand, and know the importance of working out our salvation, but more so how to do it effectively, through knowledge understanding, discernment and the ability to “Deal” [Holy Spirit leading and teaching] with life’s temptations not, “Cope,” which is one of Satans most effective weapons.
With respect to other conditions that Satan presents as temptations, we can recognize how he triumphs. Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.  He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
It’s important we understand the last part of the parable because Satan’s war is a part of that as well. Some misinterpret this part, believing they are a completed product. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Matthew 13:23 KJV
As we learned earlier, the caution is, nowhere does Scripture or experience teach the new birth automatically eliminates demonic influence or bondage, or all of the carryovers of the old man such as tempers, moods, lusts, envyings, selfishness, prejudice, naming a few. There are others that carry over which have been the basis of our carnal walk and beliefs while captives.
Please note this is the third time I have posted these faults and I do so because they are the deep-seated temptations Satan attempts to awaken in those who fall into the category of good ground. Because he knows you are going to grow in knowledge and discernment and will be fruitful as an additional influence on him losing more captives and slaves to his evil.
Using the template (Ten Commandments) not living the law but using it as knowledge so the following evil will be removed from your life and walk as your fleshly heart continues to grow with discernment of the LOve of God and His Son Yeshua.
(1) Malice, which may be taken more generally for all sorts of wickedness, as James 1:21; 1 Corinthians 5:8. But, in a more confined sense, malice is anger resting in the bosom of fools, settled overgrown anger, retained till it inflames a man to design mischief, to do mischief or delight in any mischief that befalls another
(2) Guile, or deceit in words. So it comprehends flattery, falsehood, and delusion, which is a crafty imposing upon another’s ignorance or weakness, to his damage
(3) Hypocrisies. The word being plural comprehends all sorts of hypocrisies. In matters of religion, hypocrisy is counterfeit piety. In civil conversation, hypocrisy is counterfeit friendship, which is much practised by those who give high compliments, which they do not believe, make promises which they never intend to perform or pretend friendship when mischief lies in their hearts.
(4) All envies; everything that may be called envy, which is a grieving at the good and welfare of another, at their abilities, prosperity, fame, or successful labours.
(5) Evil speaking, which is detraction, speaking against another, or defaming him; it is rendered backbiting, 2 Corinthians 12:20; Romans 1:30.
Here ends the sounding of the Watchman’s “TRUMPET” you have been informed, the choice you make from here is yours. My challenge to all Believer or Non-believer take a good sound look at your walk. Our times are dangerous and becoming even eviler, so complacency believing you’ve made it is not a good position to be in. It never hurts to deal, it is deadly to be coping with life while journeying.
The final question, “Do you know the above stumbling blocks have been removed or are being worked on to remove from your life and walk, set pride aside it is a sin and stumbling point. Polish your demonstration sharpen your sword there are many who need to see Yeshua’s light reflecting through you, babes and brothers and sisters in Yeshua.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Father in heaven thank you for this spiritual food which you have brought to us
through the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for calling us to examine our walk and learn the depth of our love for you. Thank you, Father, for showing us who are the true messengers of your word. Thank you for having patience with us as we slowly move forward in your walk to become your messengers.
Thank you, Father, for the constant protection. Thank you, Lord, for your Grace and Love towards all men. This we pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.
In case you’re wondering what the flipside of Truth is, “Knowing the Holy Spirit is showing you your shortcomings within the truth and you have the courage and faith to recognize it’s under God’s GRACE. And Turning It Over to God to Deal with it for you. The FLIPSIDE OF TRUTH it’s God’s.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing HIs bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger or shortfalls within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
