Exhortations

Sin Separates Us From God.

Sin separates us from the love of God.

God, our LORD, is merciful to those who sin and repent. The LORD treats us the same way as any other who believes in Him. When People see others having a successful life or some born with a golden spoon, the reaction is quick for those who tried to have a better life and failed. “The way of the Lord is not equal.” When considering this, we should pause and ask ourselves: Do our ways equal? Is the reaction an act of jealousy? Is it pride or bitterness? Our actions and reactions define who we are. We have to present ourselves approved to God.   

When we quit doing the right thing because we cannot see ourselves going anywhere, we turn away from righteousness, commit wickedness, and embrace corruption without realizing it is a big mistake, endangering our souls in separation from God. When Jesus sanctifies our souls, that is a one-time mission. He is not coming back to reconcile us again with the Father; we will be doing it on our own and no one else. The soul that sins dies; as written, the one who sinned shall be the one to ask for forgiveness (Psalm 32:1-5), which is lawful and the right thing to do, and God is fair-minded to forgive our sins. When we do our part, He will save the soul so that it can live again with Him. Faith without work is dead; we have to work on our salvation. (James 2:17,26).

Iniquity will ruin our souls, and we will be judged accordingly. The human body will see corruption; from dust, we came to dust, we shall be. The soul is the one that needs a glorified body when we meet the Father face to face. Regeneration is significant; we must have a new body, heart, and spirit to continue sanctification. We want to separate from sins and not from God. Cast away from all transgressions as we walk in the direction of glorification. God says in Ezekiel 18:32, “I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies,” says the Lord Yahweh. Therefore, turn yourselves and live!

Take note that death means separation from God. Sins separate us from the love of God.

God bless, and may you have the joy of your heart as you establish a closer relationship with the Father. Jesus said that he is our Brother when we follow the will of the Father. Brother Jesus, thank you for asking the Father to send His Spirit in your place. Father, I accept Your Holy Spirit to dwell in me. Amen. Published FB 10/25/2023
