Who brings the trial (verse 13)?
Does your Bible say this trial is the work of Satan to entice you into lust rebellion that
brings forth death (a tree of death)? The one who PERSEVERES UNDER TRIAL IS THE ONE WHO
RESISTS THIS LUST REBELLION, SUFFERS IN THE FLESH, CEASES TO WALK IN SIN. When you resist,
God supplies the grace to walk in it. This is the one who gets blessed.
Are you to walk in anger? Does anger achieve the righteousness of God?
Why not? Read again Ephesians 4:26-27, 31,32. This does not apply
to only anger, but to any deed of the flesh that you refuse to resist
and allow to come into your heart by refusing to walk in repentance.
The next verse tells us more is intended than just anger.
Does your Bible say you are to PUT ASIDE ALL FILTHINESS AND WICKEDNESS (fleshly lust
rebellion)? (Revelation 22:11.)
Does it really mean ALL?
This is the ONLY WAY TO IMPLANT THE WORD IN YOUR HEART.
No matter how much you read the Word or say the Word, it will not be implanted in you if
you walk in rebellion to the Word.
Did Leviticus 20:8 say you are to KEEP AND PRACTICE the Word?
Does this verse say clearly that you are to be a DOER OF THE WORD?
Does this mean you are to PRACTICE what you read, hear, and speak in the Word?
Does your Bible also clearly say that if you are not PRACTICING the Word YOU ARE DELUDING
YOURSELF? Did James 1:16 warn BRETHREN NOT TO BE DECEIVED about this?
Does your Bible say it is the DOER OF THE WORD WHO GETS BLESSED?
Compare this again with verse 12.
II Peter 1:2-8
The Word of God in the DOER OF THE WORD will produce the fruit spoken of in verses 5-8.
Does your Bible say if these qualities are yours, you won't be
II Peter 1:9
Compare this verse with James 1:22-25. This man has "forgotten" that he was
cleansed by the washing of the Word to continue a walk of holiness. We are chosen to go
and bear much fruit (John 15:16). Read I Thessalonians 4:7
again to see why God called us.
II Peter 1:10-11
Does God call you to be "diligent" about your walk with Him?
Does your Bible say if you PRACTICE those things mentioned here YOU WILL NOT STUMBLE but
will have the ENTRANCE INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD SUPPLIED TO YOU IN ABUNDANCE?
Does your Bible call these trials the TESTING OF YOUR FAITH?
Does this testing produce endurance or patience (perseverance under trial,
Notice, the blessing that comes is that you become perfect and complete. Compare this with
I Peter 5:8-10. Your heart becomes established in holiness
and righteousness of the truth (Ephesians 4:20-24).
Does your Bible say that endurance or patience works with HAVING
DONE THE WILL OF GOD? Is this when the blessing comes (you receive what was promised)?
God says He will supply all the wisdom needed to persevere under this trial. That's why we
can count it all joy God is still in charge conforming us to the image of Jesus.
IMPORTANT: Read Philippians 2:12-16
Are you to work out your salvation in the fear of the Lord? You do this by resisting
fleshly lust rebellion and being obedient to the Word of God.
Is it God who works within you to establish the heart (verse 13)?
Are you to prove yourself BLAMELESS AND INNOCENT CHILDREN OF GOD in a crooked and perverse
world? (In other words, you are not to walk
as the world walks. This is how you are a child of light.)
Does your Bible say you are to HOLD FAST THE WORD OF GOD (Word of Life)? YOU HOLD FAST THE
WORD BY BEING A DOER OF THE
WORD, NOT JUST A HEARER ONLY.
The opposite of walking blameless before God is a double-minded man.
This man tries to walk both ways (with Christ and with the world; lusts of the flesh). Can
this man expect to GET ANYTHING FROM GOD?
This describes a double-minded man. He speaks falsehood (lies, traditions of men, and
philosophies of the world rather than what God says, read
Colossians 2:8), because he has a DOUBLE HEART. In his heart he refuses to acknowledge
God's lordship over his tongue and his life. This is what fleshly sin
rebellion does. To walk in the lusts of the flesh is to REFUSE GOD'S RIGHT OF LORDSHIP
OVER YOUR LIFE. You are saying, "I am my own master."
This describes a man with a SINGLE HEART FOR GOD.
does not forget the Word but keeps it in his heart (verse 1).
the Word adds length to his life and peace to his mind (verse 2).
he does not let kindness and truth leave his heart (verse 3).
he finds favor with God (verse 4).
he trusts in the Lord by not leaning on his own wisdom
(does not have a double heart) (verse 5).
in ALL HIS WAYS he puts God first; he remembers and does God's Word (verse 6).
he is not wise in his own eyes but WALKS IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD (verse 7).
THIS MAN HAS A PURE HEART.
LET'S SUMMARIZE WHAT HAS BEEN SAID THROUGH GOD'S
I Peter 1:6-7
The trials of Satan come to entice you into lust rebellion against God's Word. These same
trials are then used by God, through the washing of the Word and the Holy Spirit to
establish the heart WHEN YOU RESIST AND OBEY THE WILL OF GOD.
Does the Bible call this a fiery test?
When your heart is purified like gold in a fiery furnace (read Malachi 3:1-3), you are
presented to God in honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
I Peter 1:9
This is not just for a few people. This is the way that faith obtains the salvation of
your souls (read again James 1:21 and II Peter 2:4-11).
I Peter 1:22-23
In obedience to the truth you purify your mind, will, and emotions. You are born again by
the Word of God when you obey and resist the suggestions of rebellion
from Satan. THIS IS NOT WORKS. IT IS THE RESPONSE OF A PURE
HEART TO THE LOVE OF GOD WHICH LEADS TO REPENTANCE. Obedience is not works. However, if
your faith has no works, it is USELESS (James 1:17-22).
This is the walk of love to wash away all selfishness from your
IMPORTANT: Read James 1:2-8, 12-16,
19-22, 25-26 again carefully.
Does verse 26 say that if you don't practice these things YOUR RELIGION
IS WORTHLESS? Read also Hebrews 5:9. To whom does Jesus
become the SOURCE OF SALVATION?
I Peter 4:12-13
You are not to be surprised at having a fiery trial. It is from the devil and he desires
to devour you by stealing, killing, and destroying (I Peter 5:8; John 10:10). Instead,
realize that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil
(I John 3:8).
When you suffer in the flesh against these lust temptations to rebellion, you cease to sin
by the working of the grace of God in your life and you do the will of
God (I Peter 4:1-2).
I Peter 4:15-16
There is a suffering that comes to the one who is worldly, living by
the lusts of the flesh. The suffering of a Christian is to resist the flesh
rebellion that comes through temptation and persecutions.
I Peter 4:17
Does your Bible say JUDGMENT begins with the world or in the household of God? God is
going to judge every hypocrite in the household of God (the ones who have a double-heart,
are double-minded, indulging the flesh with its evil desires while holding to a FORM OF
I Peter 4:18-19
Does this sound like the way to salvation is a broad road or a narrow road?
Are you called to suffer by resisting the rebellion of the flesh to do the will of God?
(Read Romans 8:17.)
Who do you entrust your soul to?
(Read Jude 24.)
NOTE: God does not promise to KEEP
the REBELLIOUS IN HEART and deed.
IMPORTANT: Read Matthew 7:13-23; Luke
II Corinthians 10:3-5
Does God expect you to destroy the lust rebellion (fiery darts of Satan, Ephesians 6:16)
that come to your mind? This includes ANY SPECULATION OR THOUGHT raised up against God's
Word. Let me ask you a question.
Is lust one of those thoughts that is against God's Word?
How about temper and anger?
What about slander, gossip, jealousy, strife, division, immorality, greed, and idolatry?
Does God pour His wrath out upon these things?
(See Colossians 3:5-9; Galatians 5:19-21.).
II Corinthians 10:6
Does your Bible tell you to not only take your thoughts captive but also to PUNISH ALL
DISOBEDIENCE? (You REPENT, TURN FROM IT, PUT IT TO DEATH BY WALKING IN OBEDIENCE TO THE
Does your Bible say you do this UNTIL YOUR OBEDIENCE IS MADE COMPLETE? (Until your heart
WE ARE NOW READY TO SEE HOW WE PUT ON THE ARMOR
OF LIGHT IN EPHESIANS 6.
NOTE: NOTICE CAREFULLY THE
DESCRIPTION OF THE ARMOR: TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, FAITH, SALVATION, WORD OF GOD. ARE
NOT ALL OF THESE DESCRIPTIONS OF JESUS?
NOW READ ROMANS 13:11-14; EPHESIANS 4:22-24; COLOSSIANS 3:5-10, 12-13; I THESSALONIANS
5:4-9 TO SEE HOW YOU PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD. YOU PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD BY CEASING TO
SIN AND "PUTTING ON THE LORD JESUS
Does your Bible say that by putting on the full armor of God you can stand against the
SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL?
Read II Corinthians 2:10-11 and Ephesians 4:26-27, 31-32 for an example of a scheme of
unforgiveness. This is just one example of Satan's many schemes of lust flesh rebellion.
Unforgiveness keeps you from having a pure heart. It causes you to be double-minded.
That's why you suffer in the flesh by resisting the temptations to be bitter or hold a
grudge, and in this way you suffer in the flesh. You die daily against lust rebellion of
unforgiveness (raised up against the knowledge of God, (II Corinthians 10:5) that the life
of Jesus (image of a pure heart) can be manifested in you (see II Corinthians 4:7-12).
IMPORTANT: ALL THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL COME
TO DIVIDE AND DEFILE THE HEART FROM PURITY AND SIMPLICITY OF DEVOTION TO JESUS. SATAN EVEN
DEFILE THE ARMOR. LET'S SEE HOW SATAN DOES THAT.
- SATAN comes with a false gospel he calls truth (II Corinthians 11:3-4).
GOD SAYS all real Truth will conform you to godliness (I Timothy 6:3-5).
- SATAN SAYS it is enough just to have a head knowledge of the Truth.
- GOD SAYS it is not the mere acceptance of the Truth that makes you a Christian but the
"love of the truth" (II Thessalonians 2:10).
Those who love the truth practice the truth (John14:21).
- SATAN SAYS you are righteous while you practice fleshly lust rebellion.
GOD SAYS "Do not be deceived. The ONE WHO PRACTICES RIGHTEOUSNESS is the one who is
righteous" (I John 3:7).
- SATAN gives you a "false peace" while you walk in the stubbornness of your own
heart (Deuteronomy 29:19; I Thessalonians 5:3; Jeremiah 6:13-14).
GOD SAYS only those who have been justified by faith (see Acts 15:8-9) persevere under the
fiery trials of Satan, (James 1:12) obtain proven
character (II Peter 2:4-11) and walk in love (I John 3:14) have peace.
See Romans 5:1-5 where all of these qualities are related to peace with God.
- SATAN SAYS accept the temptations of fleshly lust rebellion (James 1:13-15).
GOD SAYS put them to death (II Corinthians 10:5-6; I Peter 4:12, 1-2;
I Peter 5:8-9; Galatians 5:24).
SALVATION & THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
- SATAN SAYS salvation is an experience, while you continue to walk in fleshly rebellion.
GOD SAYS blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments pure, unspotted by the
world, the flesh, and the devil (Revelation 16:15; Romans 13:11-14; I John 3:3. Satan
wants you to listen to the his words and the words of the world and the flesh, to carnal
doctrines and the lies of those who teach a gospel that does not conform you to godliness,
and their teaching leads you to walk in the character and nature of Satan, rather than
teaching ALL THE WORD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN THE CHARACTER AND NATURE
OF JESUS. (Luke 6: 46-49; John 8:45; John14: 21, 23-24; Hebrews 4:12; psalm 119:105;
Matthew 4:4; Romans 10:17; )
WHEN YOU DO NOT RESIST THE DEVIL, YOU ARE IN REBELLION AND
NOT KEEPING YOUR HEART PURE.
LET'S LOOK AT AN EXAMPLE OF A DEFILED, IMPURE HEART.
When you refuse to put on the armor of God (put on the Lord Jesus Christ), or let Satan
defile the armor through the traditions of men, this is what the powers of
darkness place in your heart. You then have an impure heart, a selfish divided heart, and
in this way you become defiled.
When you walk this way you are walking the WAY OF ADAM, BECOMING A TREE OF DEATH rather
than A TREE OF LIFE (created in the image of Jesus). Read again Hebrews 12:14-15.
IMPORTANT: Read Romans 1:28-32; Romans 2:2. Is the judgment
on those who walk this way?
Does your Bible say these were honoring God with their lips?
A person can say religious words with his mouth while HAVING AN IMPURE HEART.
Is this kind of worship fruitful or in VAIN?
Does this mean that if you are not coming to God with a PURE HEART your RELIGION, your
WORSHIP, is WORTHLESS? (Read II Timothy 2:22.)
You no longer hold fast the Word of life (Philippians 2:12-16) but seek
to justify yourself by your traditions.
REMEMBER: The problem is that YOUR HEART IS NOT PURE BEFORE GOD.
The result of your impure heart is that you invalidate the Word of God. You reject the
Word for your traditions. In this way you keep the Word from washing your heart (Ephesians
5:26) in order to purify it. The reason is because carnal
doctrines have captured your heart.
WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO DRAW NEAR TO GOD BUT YOUR HEART IS STILL FAR FROM GOD, YOU ARE NOT
CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF JESUS.
A PURE HEART ALLOWS GOD TO WORK IN YOU TO PRODUCE THE IMAGE OF JESUS (James 4:4-10). WHEN
YOU PRACTICE SIN YOU ARE NOT RESISTING THE DEVIL BUT INSTEAD YOU ARE AGREEING WITH HIM.
YOU DON'T HAVE ON THE ARMOR OF GOD AND YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE SCHEMES OF
THE DEVIL. YOU ARE FILLING THE MIND WITH THOUGHTS FROM THE DEVIL WHICH GOES INTO YOUR
THIS PRODUCES SELFISHNESS INSTEAD OF LOVE. THIS IS THE FRUIT OF THE DEVIL (A TREE OF
DEATH) RATHER THAN TAKING YOUR THOUGHTS CAPTIVE TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST (THE WORD OF
GOD). IN THIS WAY YOU ARE NOT PUTTING TO DEATH THE LUST REBELLION OF THE FLESH AND YOUR
OBEDIENCE IS NEVER MADE COMPLETE. (Read Romans 8:14, 13; II Corinthians 10:6.)
Does the Word of God warn you not to be deceived (deluded) by a
persuasive argument? Would this be the traditions of men?
Does your Bible clearly describe the traditions of men as EMPTY
Are they "not according to Christ?"
Are you warned that they can TAKE YOU CAPTIVE?
We have described to you through the Word how they take you captive. They CAPTURE YOUR
HEART AND YOU BECOME DOUBLE-MINDED. These traditions of men excuse fleshly lust rebellion,
promising you a false security while you walk in the desires of the flesh. They ignore
Scriptures like Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5-8; Revelation 21:6-8; Colossians 3:5-8;
and I Corinthians 6:9-11, explaining them away, while you walk in the REBELLION OF AN
IMPURE HEART. (Read Romans 1:28-32; Romans 2:2.)
These doctrines of men promise you heaven while you keep a DIVIDED HEART - a heart far
from God. In this way, you INVALIDATE THE WORD, not allowing it to PURIFY YOUR HEART
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WORD OF GOD WHEN THIS
HAPPENS? TURN TO ISAIAH 29.
Does your Bible say that the Word of God becomes LIKE THE WORDS OF A SEALED BOOK? In other
words, they can only see their own traditions.
They cannot see TRUTH because their DIVIDED HEART (double-minded) has SEALED THE BIBLE
FROM THEIR UNDERSTANDING (read Matthew 13:23,19). THIS IS HOW RELIGIOUS PEOPLE GO TO HELL.
WHY CAN'T THEY UNDERSTAND? WHY IS THERE NO
Is this the same problem we previously read about in Mark 7?
Is their reverence for God from a PURE HEART or from a DIVIDED HEART?
What does your Bible say happens to their wisdom and their
THIS IS HOW RELIGIOUS PEOPLE MISS GOD AND GO TO HELL.
Does your Bible say that to the pure all things are pure?
Remember I John 3:3; the one who puts his hope in Jesus purifies himself just as Jesus is
Have we just seen how a person gets a DEFILED HEART?
Is their mind and conscience PURE or DEFILED?
Does your Bible say these same people PROFESS TO KNOW
GOD but WALK IN DISOBEDIENCE?
Does your Bible say this kind of worship is in VAIN and WORTHLESS?
WHAT DOES TRUE SALVATION INSTRUCT US TO DO?
Are we told to deny ungodliness and worldly desires?
Does your Bible say that true salvation instructs you to live righteously and godly?
Is PRACTICING the deeds of the flesh RIGHTEOUS and GODLY or UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and
Read Romans 1:18 again. ON WHAT DOES GOD POUR OUT HIS WRATH?
Does your Bible say that God redeems us from EVERY LAWLESS DEED so that we can be PURE and
Remember I Peter 1:14-16. We are not to be conformed to the lusts of
the flesh, but as OBEDIENT CHILDREN WE ARE TO BE HOLY.
Does your Bible say you ONCE were DISOBEDIENT?
Does it say you ONCE WERE ENSLAVED TO THE LUST OF
Does that mean you don't live for the flesh anymore but for Him who died for you? (See II
What does the washing and regeneration of the Holy Spirit do? (See Ephesians 5:26-27; I
Corinthians 6:9-11; Jeremiah 4:14,21-22.)
WHAT DOES GOD HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IDOLS IN THE
Does your Bible say that God is addressing "any man of the house
Would that be people of the world or religious people?
Who is going to give that person an answer for the idol in his heart?
What answer does God give to that person?
Does God say REPENT AND GET RID OF YOUR IDOLS?
Could idols today be various lusts of the flesh? (See Colossians 3:5.)
Could it be selfish ambition? (See James 3:13-14.)
How about a church or a ministry making a name for itself?
Does God say He wants to "lay hold of your heart?"
Is that so your heart can be PURIFIED?
Do the doctrines and traditions of men not according to the Word of Christ
(Colossians 2:8) purify your heart or divide your heart?
I Timothy 6:3
Does your Bible say that SOUND DOCTRINE conforms you to godliness?
II Timothy 4:3
When you do not endure SOUND DOCTRINE you do not want to hear the truth. (John 3:20;
Is this true today?
They don't desire to walk in godliness, and therefore they protect their own doctrines and
traditions. What kind of teachers do these people seek out?
Do these teachers tell them they are righteous and holy while they walk in rebellion
II Timothy 4:4
Does your Bible warn you that some will turn aside, not wanting to hear the truth?
II Timothy 4:7
When you fight the good fight of faith, you do not let your heart become defiled. You do
not let the Word planted in your heart be disturbed and uprooted by men's traditions and
Read I Peter 5:8-10 and Ephesians 6:16 to see how you fight the good fight of faith.
II Timothy 4:8
Does your Bible say this is how you obtain a crown of righteousness?
I Timothy 4:1
This is one of the ways the powers of darkness entice you into fleshly lust rebellion. In
this way they keep you from either putting on the full armor of light or delude you into
falsehood about what the armor really is.
I Timothy 4:6
Does God say that you are to be nourished on SOUND DOCTRINE?
I Timothy 4:7-8
Does your Bible say that GODLINESS IS WHAT HOLDS THE PROMISE OF ETERNAL LIFE?
Did we read that SOUND DOCTRINE conforms you to GODLINESS?
THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS "A FORM OF GODLINESS" THAT IS NOT TRUE GODLINESS.
THIS "FORM OF GODLINESS" PRODUCES THE WRONG
FRUIT. LET'S SEE WHAT THIS FRUIT IS.
Read II Timothy 3:1-4
II Timothy 3:5
Does God say AVOID those who merely hold to a form of godliness and produce the fruit of
II Corinthians 6:14-18
Does your Bible say clearly that UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE NOT TO BE IN
PARTNERSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER?
Do verses 16-18 say anything about why we don't see more of the glory of God and the fruit
of Jesus today?
II Thessalonians 3:3
Does God promise protection from Satan?
II Thessalonians 3:4-5
When our hearts are directed to purity and devotion to Jesus, we are demonstrating and
manifesting our love for God ("love the Lord your God with all your heart" Mark
II Thessalonians 3:6
Does God warn us to be careful about who we walk with?
IMPORTANT: Read I Corinthians 15:33-34.
Compare this with I Timothy 6:3-5 which describes those without understanding and are
deprived of the truth.
Jesus said the reason people cannot understand the Word is because "YOU WANT TO DO
THE SELFISH DESIRES OF YOUR FATHER," the devil. You can't indulge the flesh with its
evil desires (desires of Satan) and understand the Word of God.
Does your Bible say those who are of God can hear the Word of God? Even if they have
believed in some traditions of men, when they hear the Word of God they know the teaching
as being from God. Those who cannot hear are not of God.
Does your Bible say that if you are WILLING TO DO the will of God you can know if the
teaching is according to God?
Did we read in Matthew 7:21 that only those who DO THE WILL OF GOD go to heaven?
What is the opposite of doing the will of God?
Does your Bible say the ones who are worldly-minded, following their own ungodly lusts,
are the ones who cause divisions?
Is this opposite of doing the will of God?
These are people led by the lusts of their own flesh.
They WANT TO DO the desires
of their father the devil. They are in covenant IN THEIR HEARTS with Satan. They are
filled with SELFISH AMBITION, seeking only their own advantage.
Does the Word of God describe these as religious people, hidden reefs in your love feasts?
Now we see another of the reasons we are to separate ourselves from these men. They will
try to compel you to walk as they walk. They want to count you among their numbers to
boast in your flesh. This is why we are to pursue righteousness with those who call on God
from a PURE HEART (II Timothy 2:22).
NOTE: This does not at all mean we are to
separate ourselves from the lost people in the world who don't know God. God does,
however, demand a purity of heart and single-minded devotion among those who name the name
of Christ. (See I Corinthians 5:9-12; II Timothy 2:19; Ephesians 5:3-9 for a discussion of
II Corinthians 6:14
Does your Bible say that darkness and light cannot walk together nor have fellowship
II Corinthians 6:16
Can the temple of God (the hearts of men where the Spirit of God dwells) be in agreement
II Corinthians 6:17
Does your Bible say that you are to no longer be unequally yoked? How does this verse say
you avoid being unequally yoked?
II Corinthians 7:1
This is why we pursue righteousness.
We cleanse ourselves by the washing of the Word so there will be no defilement in flesh
and spirit. The result is that we walk in holiness and the fear of the Lord.
Read II Timothy 2:19-26
The opposite of a PURE HEART (LOVE) is NOT RESISTING the flesh and DOING THE WILL OF SATAN
(SELFISHNESS). God's Word says that we should NOT BE QUARRELSOME but be ABLE TO TEACH
those in OPPOSITION TO THE TRUTH so they might REPENT and escape from DOING THE WILL OF
While this verse is often quoted and memorized, the traditions of men have ignored verses
"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who DOES NOT OBEY the Son shall
not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him" (NAS version). (Compare this with
Hebrews 5:9; Colossians 3:5-8.)
Those who are DOING THE WILL OF SATAN are in OPPOSITION TO THE TRUTH.
They do not want to give up their carnal lifestyles. They will not COME TO THE LIGHT (Word
What does someone who PRACTICES THE TRUTH do when he is TAUGHT THE WORD OF GOD?
I John 3:4-5
Does your Bible say Jesus appeared to TAKE AWAY THE PRACTICE OF SIN? (Compare this verse
with Titus 2:14.)
I John 3:3
What does everyone who has the hope of eternal life do?
I John 3:6-7
Does your Bible say that THOSE WHO ARE RIGHTEOUS PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS? (See Revelation
"They do the will and Word of God.
I John 3:8
Did Jesus appear to destroy the works of the devil? (The fruit of fleshly sin rebellion.)
Does your Bible say that sin is not to be your Master?
How do you become a slave of something? YOU PRESENT YOURSELF FOR OBEDIENCE. What does
obedience to sin result in?
What does obedience to righteousness result in?
This is a result of living in the love of God. A heart full of the love of God walks in
obedience to the Word of God.
A heart full of selfishness walks in obedience to the flesh, indulging its lust desires.
Does your Bible say that YOU BECOME OBEDIENT FROM THE HEART?
What happens when you present yourselves to slaves of impurity?
Does your Bible say that the benefit of presenting yourself to obedience in righteousness
is sanctification which results in obtaining eternal life?
Read Hebrews 12:14
WHAT THEN? IF SOME DID NOT BELIEVE, THEIR UNBELIEF WILL NOT NULLIFY (INVALIDATE THE WORD)
THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD, WILL IT? MAY IT NEVER BE! RATHER, LET GOD BE FOUND TRUE, THOUGH
EVERY MAN BE FOUND A LIAR. . . (Romans 3:3-4).
