"...HAVING ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION THAT IS IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST”


Has your Pastor ever raised these words of Peter before?

2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

I didn't think so.

You are being presented with a false Gospel message, a message which eliminates an actual redemption (release/rescue/ransom) from ALL iniquity and the establishment of purity of heart by which we are made zealous for righteousness.

Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

You are being presented with a message where it is taught that Jesus basically swapped places with you. You are taught that Jesus is your SUBSTITUTE.

You are taught...
  1. Jesus dying on your behalf effected a PAYMENT of the penalty your owe for your sin, thus with the payment not being due anymore you are no longer subject to the wrath of God.
  2. The righteousness of Jesus is credited to your account by faith, so that when God looks at you He sees the righteousness of Jesus and not your actual unrighteousness.

You are being lied to! Jesus is not your substitute! JESUS IS YOUR EXAMPLE.

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:
1Pet 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
1 Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose striped ye were healed.
...
1Pe 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
1Pe 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
1Pe 4:2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

Jesus taught...

Joh 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Joh 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.


YOU MUST DIE WITH JESUS – JESUS WAS YOUR EXAMPLE

Paul taught...

...Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Rom 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.
Rom 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

The above words are NOT POSITIONAL, the context is that of MANIFEST BEHAVIOUR. This is why Paul wrote...

Rom 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?
Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

You are a slave to whom YOU obey.

It is the implanted word which saves the soul and in order to receive it you MUST lay aside ALL filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness and become a DOER of the Word (Jas 1:21-22). Faith is the ACTIVE PRINCIPLE through which we wholeheartedly yield to God resulting in a TOTAL HEART TRANSFORMATION by His grace. FAITH = DOING.

Your teachers are deceived and preaching a false Gospel message which gives those whom refuse to crucify their lusts a measure of comfort in their rebellion. If this was not the case then the professing Christians would not be engaged in adultery with the world and there would be no willful sin amongst those professing to be saved. False teachers have twisted the REAL reason as to why Jesus died on the cross (see Heb 2:14-18, Heb 9:14-16, Heb 10:9-22, Tit 2:14, 1Pe 2:21, 1Pe 3:18, 2Cor 5:15-6:1). The false teachers have also twisted the meanings of faith, grace, repentance and salvation.

Paul warned of this DAY AND NIGHT FOR THREE YEARS WITH TEARS.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Act 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
