What to Do When a Strange God Shows Up in Your Life

  1. I did not find this message complete Jan, Peter in the time frame mentioned by this man, did not have the indwelling of The Holy Spirit, Pentecost had not come, he was still in slavery to Sin, he had not been set free as we have been.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth, everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    Romans 6:6- 7 For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of Sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to Sin because anyone who has died has been freed from Sin. (KJV)

    If we continue to believe we will Sin till we die but it’s OK because we are under grace, than we will Sin and no doubt make excuses for it, even implying that God is unfair in His judgement or that His Love is conditional if we reap the evil we sow but good and evil cannot co -exist and yes we were created this way for our good but it’s our choice what we choose to sow, good or evil, it’s not God’s will anyone perishes that is why He sent Jesus and why Jesus chose to die for us, they are Love and can be no other way, He does not afflict us as some claim to Teach or Test us, when we sin we separate ourselves from Him.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.(KJV)

    God tells us to reckon ourselves dead to Sin and as confirmed below, when we are Born Again and Perfected in Love having put our Carnal Flesh to death, we do not continue to Sin, we have God’s seed not Adams, the Old has gone the New has come.

    Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)

    1 John 3: 1-11 ( 9 ) No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.(KJV)

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him. (KJV)

    Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from Sin ye became the servants of Righteousness. (KJV)

    1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him Sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him neither known Him. Little Children, let no man deceive you he that doeth Righteousness is Righteous even as He is Righteous.(KJV)

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in him verily is the Love of God perfected hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he bideth in Him ought himself also so to walk even as He walked.(KJV)

    Luke 6:45-46 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.(KJV)

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ who is your life appears then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death therefore whatever belongs to your earthly nature sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed which is idolatry. Because of these the wrath of God is coming.(KJV)

    2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises dearly beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God. (KJV)

    Romans 6 : 1 – 2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in Sin that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer therein? (KJV)

    1 Peter 1:21-23 Being Born again not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible by the Word of God which liveth and abideth for ever.(KJV)

    Romans 8: 8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.(KJV)

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation but it is not to the sinful nature to live according to it or if you live according to the Sinful nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (KJV)

    Romans 6:5-7 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection. 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. For he that is dead is freed from Sin.(KJV)

    Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from Sin and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto Holiness and the end everlasting life. For the wages of Sin is death but the gift of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)

    1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us. (KJV)

    1 Peter 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 stripes ye were healed.(KJV)

    Ephesians 4:23-24 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind And that ye put on the new man which after God is created in righteousness and True Holiness.(KJV)

    Colossians 1:27-29 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles which is Christ in you the Hope of glory Whom we preach warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man Perfect in Christ Jesus Where unto I also labour, striving according to His working which worketh in me mightily(KJV)

    Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ who gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people zealous of good works. These things speak and exhort and rebuke with all Authority. Let no man despise thee.(KJV)

    Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (KJV)

    “Christ”ian Love Always – Anne.

    • Dear Anne, what I embraced from this particular article is that it’s easy to be caught up in being a Martha: having to get it all all right and be all right and fail in just resting in the affections and promises of the relationship with God afforded by Christ’s sacrifice. I can turn verses into occasions for self accusations and grovel in my own missing the mark and not appreciate that I am becoming self righteous and thereby creating my own work based relationship with God. Am I then, who began in the Spirit continuing in the flesh? Yes! It is subtle and we do the same thing to one another when we judge each others spirituality not on their love but attendance at church and if they conform to our standards of “Godly” behavior. May we be encouraging transparency and confessing our sins with each other that we may be healed. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.


      • I shared God’s inspired Scriptures with you Jan, they are His Truth not my thoughts, if we ask for God’s Wisdom and empowering which we all need because we were not Born with them, we receive them and we are not to doubt that we have and so keep asking as some do.

        Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get Wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

        James 1:5-7 If any of you lack Wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in Faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

        Luke 11:13 …. how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

        1 John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any
        Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

        Colossians 2:2-3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the Mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge.

        It is God who tells us we are to Aim to be Perfected in Love putting our Carnal flesh to death and so being Born Again, which means we don’t sin, we can’t sin if we have God’s seed not Adams, it is not me trying to earn my Salvation or being self- righteous, we are to Ask, Seek and Knock not just wait to be sapped, we work out our Salvation but not meaning work for it.

        1 John 3: 1-11 ( 9 ) No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.(KJV)

        You need to seek Jesus our only Teacher for understanding Jan not a man or woman, so you can know the Truth and it will set you free from the slavery of Sin, ask Jesus to show you His reality or at least read the Scriptures I have shared in both comments, they don’t need interpreting, apart from needing God’s Wisdom not worldly wisdom, they state clearly we do not go on sinning when we are Born Again, yes we are under Grace until we are Perfected in Love but also still in darkness when we sin but yes heart repentance brings forgiveness, God knows those who are His and not one of us will be lost or He would not of chosen us to be conformed into the image of Jesus Christ, yes Perfected in Love and this is before we die not after as confirmed many times in Scripture if we have Spiritual eyes to see… we ask and receive as Jesus tells us to do.

        Blessings – Anne.
