Everlasting Kindness - Volume I
Since a long
time I had been praying for the gospel truth to be revealed, and for a
long time I was living a normal Christian life. My background, as most
know, is a Catholic by birth. I lived a very conservative life. The
views of my parents' too were very conservative. I grew up believing
and being taught that God was helpless against the powers of witchcraft,
and there was turmoil and chaos in the family all the while. My
childhood too did not experience the normal childhood that one would
experience, all I knew was hatred and misery. I didn't grow up in love
and always longed for love and always had a lack. Even my dad was
ill-treated by his brothers and one day my dad's brother called my dad
over the phone on his birthday and started laughing. On enquiring the
reason for the laughter, my uncle, my dad's brother, stated that he had
once wanted to see my dad as a beggar on the street. Just think of
that. I am not ashamed of sharing my story, cause I love Jesus too much
to be ashamed. In the same manner, when I was still young, my dad
called me an orphan and stated that I didn't have anybody but God.
Since then, whenever my parents would scold me I would lock myself in my
room crying, "My God, I have no one but you." There are many other
sufferings I went through that would shock some of you, but I wouldn't
want to at this time. I even tried to commit suicide at one point of
time in 1997, but I heard His unusual, but calm voice, saying, "My son,
do not do this, I am with you. Do not be afraid." This drew me to more
despair, cause I had heard the voice of God. But, the more I tried to
pray, the more sinful I felt, and instead of helping me, it blew me out
of my mind. I told God, "You will not allow me to live nor die in
peace. You either answer me now or I will take some drastic measure."
I really did not know what I would do but I was prepared to take rat
poison, it was then, amazingly, that a friend invited my own dad to an
AG Church, who in turn asked me to pay a visit. I still don't
understand how my dad allowed me to go there, but I readily went. When
I reached the Church in July 1997, it was a Sunday, and they were
singing my favorite song, 'You are my hiding place' and the message was
about the relationship of God and man and what Jesus had done. Since
then I have seen amazingly my life and situations change, even though I
still had struggles. I have been able to forgive my dad, whom for years
I couldn't, but by the revelation of His love I was able to do that.
Today, that same dad states that 50 years of his life has been wasted
and that I have brought peace in the family. Wow!!! What an amazing
God. This dad of mine has been touched by the same teachings that I am
writing to you. I pray that you too might experience the power that has
been granted to them that believe in the pure and precious Word of God.
You might be thinking what kind of message is this
that I am sharing with you. Well, it is a truth that has blessed my
life. It is not some teaching that is shared by me alone but is a truth
from a ministry which has blessed a lot of people and has transformed
the way I think and has changed my lifestyle and that of my family as

Whatever has been written is not to
divert from the precious and pure Word of God. Every care has been

you study the Word for yourself and let the truth set you free. I
believe this book will help you grow in the truth and also in your
relationship with God. Don't blindly read, but study it for yourself.
I am sure you will be blessed.
Brother in Christ
First of all, many of us avoid the
topic of God because we feel it means we have a lot to sacrifice. May
be our love for girls, or love for fun, etc. But, let me tell you, you
have lost sight of God's love for you. How many of us really seek after
the things of God? We might say we believe in Jesus, but when the
moment of test comes are we ready to believe in Jesus? Jesus says in
John 14:1 Let not your hearts be troubled,
... but we are always in worry,
in doubt, in fear.
Are we true examples? Are we living up to the
expectation God has for us? I'm sure most of our answers would be no.
Let this love of God so revolutionize your life that you will live each
moment for Him and Him alone. Amen.
John 3:16-17 says,
John 3:16 "For God so loved
the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in
Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send his son into
the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be
We might have read this so many times,
but have we pondered on the love of God and the death of His son, Jesus
Ephesians 2:3 "We were by nature the
children of wrath."
That means, how ever good you were, by nature, you
were destined for the wrath of God; a people destined for hell.
Romans 3:10 "There is no one righteous,
No, not one."
Again Romans 3:23 states,
Romans 3:23 "For all have
sinned and come short of the glory of God."
God was terribly angry with the nature
of sin and waged war against it. All this war was meted out on Jesus in
Isaiah, Chapter 53: Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD
revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a
tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath neither form
nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we
should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of
sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from
him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our
griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten
of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he
was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon
him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone
astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid
on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his
mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall
declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the
living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made
his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he
had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it
pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou
shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall
prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his
hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied:
by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall
bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the
great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath
poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the
transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for
This was fulfilled in none other than Jesus Christ
Himself. Jesus said in Matthew 20:28:
Matthew 20:28 Even as the Son of Man came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for
And again in John 15:13
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a
man lay down his life for his friends.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation
in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.
Many of us do not consider or think
that we require salvation. We, sometimes feel that we are good and can
somehow attain salvation by works.
Romans 3:27 Are we justified by the
law? No, but by the law of faith.
Here, understand that the love of God
is not based on performance. Romans 5:1 says:
Romans 5:1 We are justified by faith.
Ephesians 2:6 Ye are saved by grace
through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
Romans 8:8 says that
they that are in the flesh cannot please God. So do you
think that anyone can please God? No, absolutely not. Then how can one
be saved at all, if God is so dead against sin and if he is warring
against us Because of sin?
Romans 1:18-19 says that:
Romans 1:18-19 ... the wrath of God
has already been revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness. Because that which may be known of God is manifest in
them; for God hath showed it unto them, so that no one is without
It is true because all of us have a witness on the inside of us
which confesses that God is one and that there is only one truth. Most
of us have this witness when we have nothing to do. Haven't you asked
yourself many times, "What is the use of life? Why am I here, etc.?"
This is when we avoid these questions because we feel it is pointless
and then try to get some entertainment and say we are bored. Deuteronomy 4:29
Deuteronomy 4:29 ... you will find Me when you search for me with all your heart.
How many of us truly seek after the things of God? Just because you
enroll yourself in a church and listen to each and every message and
participate in all the activities, it doesn't mean you truly understand
the love of God for your life and are sincere in all your actions and
thoughts toward Him. I know many of you have corrupted minds and
indulge in thoughts that are evil, but still God loves you.
Read 2 Corinthians 5:21:
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made Him
to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we might be made the
righteousness of God.
How Do You Know God is Not Angry?
Luke 2:14 says,
"Glory to God in the highest, and
on earth peace, good will toward men.
Again, Ephesians 2:14 says,
Ephesians 2:14 "For he is our peace, who
hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition
Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh
the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to
make in himself of two one new man, so making peace;
Isaiah 40:1-2 says,
Isaiah 40:1-2 "Comfort ye, comfort
ye my people, saith your God.
2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
and cry to her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is
pardoned; for she hath received of the Lord's hand double (pardon) for all
What wonderful news!!! This doesn't
talk of only Jerusalem, but the Israel of God, who are the true
believing Christians. Oh, once you hear this truth you should be
excited my brothers and sisters. I am certainly excited. How good to
know that all my sins are forgiven, that God has waged a war against sin
by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus, into the world to die for us.
Also, that he not only paid a price, but a double price. Halleluiah!!!
Ezekiel 36:22-32 talks about sins being
forgiven, and that we will be clean.
Ezekiel 36:21 But I had pity for mine holy
name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither
Ezekiel 36:22 - Therefore say unto
the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your
sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have
profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
Ezekiel 36:23 - And I will sanctify my
great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned
in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD,
saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
Ezekiel 36:24 - For I will take you from
among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring
you into your own land.
Ezekiel 36:25 - Then will I sprinkle clean
water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and
from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
Ezekiel 36:26 - A new heart also will I
give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away
the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of
This is confirmed by:
Ephesians 4:23-24 Be
renewed in your mind; and put on the new man which after God is created
in true righteousness and holiness. Notice that the new man and the new
heart is referring to the born again experience of John: 3:3. John 3:6
says that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.
2 Cor 5:17 Therefore, if any
man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
behold all things are become new.
This is nothing but a new birth, and
you are no more in the flesh, but you are a spirit being. Halleluiah.
I will talk about this in a series called 'Spirit, Soul and Body'
later. This will open your understanding more.
Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit
within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my
judgments, and do them.
This talks about Joel 2:28, 29 which talks
about God pouring His Spirit upon all flesh. This was eventually
fulfilled in Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost, after Jesus rose from the
dead. The Holy Spirit is given after baptism by the laying of hands
Acts 8:16,17. Now you see that this is the true meaning of salvation
and what God has done, seeing that we cannot save ourselves on our own;
for all our righteousness is but filthy rags in the sight of God (Isaiah
64:6). Isn't this too wonderful? But you have to believe, for this is
what the Word says. Again, according to Romans 8:1
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now
no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit.
This is an awesome truth that will bless
you. Oh! How excited I am to write about this wonderful Truth!!! But,
only, we should acknowledge Him as our only Lord and Savior.
Ezekiel 36:28 And ye
shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my
people, and I will be your God.
Ezekiel 36:29 I will also save you from
all your uncleanness: and I will call for the corn, and will increase
it, and lay no famine upon you.
Ezekiel 36:30 And I will multiply the
fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive
no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember
your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe
yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your
Ezekiel 36:32 Not for your sakes do I
this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and
confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
Did you know that the gospel in Greek
was rarely used and was used only after the good news about Jesus was
preached? The actual meaning of gospel is 'Too Good to Be True News.'
Isn't this wonderful? It is for this reason that Paul writes in:
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power
of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and
also to the Greek.
Further more, Psalms 32:1-2 says,
is the man whose transgression is covered, whose sin is forgiven.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the
Lord imputes not iniquity, and in whose Spirit there is no guile.
Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was
no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm
brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
needed a super duper miracle to save us, according to Romans 8:8, 3:23 and
6:23. So, God in His everlasting kindness saved us with his own mighty
arm. How wonderful our God is. Just knowing this will bless you so
much by just thinking about it daily that you won't get depressed, you
won't have to worry about life, and you don't have to commit suicide.
All you need to do is love him back and not run away from him. If you
still choose to run away, you are worse than the worst person who ever
lived on the earth, even worse than Hitler.
Last few references I would like to
give to you to confirm this truth is
Isaiah 45:17 Salvation is forever.
Isaiah 51:8 - Salvation is from
generation to generation.
Isaiah 54:8 - In a little wrath I hid my
face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have
mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.
Isaiah 54:9 - For this is as the waters
of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no
more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with
thee, nor rebuke thee.
This is telling us that just as the
God swore that the waters will no more cover the earth and was sealed
with the rainbow; so, also, God will establish His covenant of peace and
that He will no more be angry with us. Oh! How I'm blessed to know this
Isaiah 54:10 - For the mountains shall
depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from
thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD
that hath mercy on thee.
Again Jeremiah 31:31-34
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come,
saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of
Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jeremiah 31:32 Not according to the
covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by
the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they
brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the
covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days,
saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in
their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no
more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know
the LORD: For they shall all know me, from the
least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will
forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Finally, let us turn to Hebrews
9:1-28. This indicates and is a fulfillment of what Christ did in Isaiah
53, that Christ's sacrifice was the perfect sacrifice, and that He
entered once into the Holy of holies, neither by the blood of goats and
calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained Eternal Redemption for us.
Notice that Eternal Redemption has
been purchased, that our iniquities and sins have been pardoned.
Hebrews 10:10 – 14
10 By the which we are sanctified
through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Here we
understand that Jesus died once and only once.
11 And every priest standeth daily
ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never
take away sins: In olden times no
sacrifice was able to take away sins.
12 But this man, after He had offered
one sacrifice for sins forever sat down on the right hand of God.
would Jesus, a priest after the order of Melchisedek in Psalms 110:4, would
sit down forever on the right hand of God? A priest normally has to
perform sacrifices, but since there was no more sacrifice left to be
done for sins; according to Isaiah 40:2 the Lord has paid double for her
That is why Jesus is sitting down on
the right hand side of God. Wow!!! How marvelous.
13 From henceforth expecting His
enemies be made His footstool.
14 For by one offering He hath
perfected forever them that are sanctified.
Wow!!! Did you know that? We are
perfected forever. Amen.
It is also a fulfillment of Isaiah 43:25
and Jeremiah 31:34 which says that God will not remember our sins anymore.
Sins have been forgiven forever. And now we have peace with God,
according to Luke 2:14.
There is now no condemnation to them
that are in Christ, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.
Amen and Halleluiah.
I think that these are enough
references to make you believe that God is ever-loving and
ever-compassionate and that he has forgiven you and is no more angry
with us. You don't have to hereafter consider yourself a sinner
anymore; forever forgiven and forever saved.
Isaiah 14:1,3,6,7, Isaiah 25, Isaiah 26:1-5, Isaiah 43:25, Isaiah 44:5, Isaiah 45:21-23, Isaiah 48:9-11, Isaiah 45:17, Isaiah 49:6.8-16,22, Isaiah 51:1-22, Isaiah 52:3,5-10, Isaiah 53, Isaiah 54:1-17, Isaiah 55:1-13, Isaiah 56:1, Isaiah 60, 62, 63:4-5; Isaiah 65:16-25, Jeremiah 29:11,13; Jeremiah 31:31-34.
These references are more than sufficient to prove
that God is not angry anymore.
Halleluiah. Praise the Lord!!! Hope this has
Everlasting Kindness - Volume II
Now that you know that God loves
you according to Isaiah 40:1,2, Ephesians 2:14-16, Hebrews 9, Hebrews 10:10-14. How
wonderful, how precious, how awesome!!! For many years, I suffered
in unforgiveness and hatred. Hatred of my life, hatred toward my
family, my situation, and I used to vent frequently and curse
everyone who hurt me. I have even made statements against God and
feel so undeserving of His love today, dear brothers and sisters in
Christ. When my dad called me an orphan, I remember what it played
on my mind. When a colleague of mine told me, "You're such a sad
person that who will marry you, when my only offense was that I said
I don't have a girlfriend and that I believe in friends. Others
used to tease me saying that I was not sportive, and that I was a
godly person. Was that something wrong for trying to be a good
Christian? Another friend accused me of misbehavior at an age when
I did not have any infatuations. After suffering all this shame and
ridicule, there was no way I was suited to live normally. My mom
used to tell me that I was the incarnation of the devil for being
mischievous, and my dad used to tell me that I had an evil spirit
inside of me. According to human standards I am not meant to be a
normal person. For years, I couldn't understand the meaning of all
this. All I could do was cry, saying, "Lord I don't want to live.
I want to know you. And then the thought of being a sinner drew me
to even more misery. How many of you are there like this? How many
of you have faced rejection? At one time, my dad accused me of
murdering my mom – the one I loved so dearly just because I married
Suja; that too an arranged marriage? You may think how is it
possible to forgive such a person? I have my friends. I did not
commit suicide as most of you would have done in that situation.
When my dad tried to create a lot of misunderstanding and even tried
to separate me from my wife after being married for 6 long years and
after having a 3½ year old son, I did not give in, because I knew
God hated divorce. It could have been easy to divorce, because it
was an easy option and even I was not happy. It doesn't mean just
because you have stopped loving your wife of your
youth, for whatever reason, you can divorce her. Do we think what will
happen to their life after divorce? Do you think society will accept
them? Or should they continue living their lives with the thought that
they have had a broken marriage? Once upon a time, there was love in
the family, and it was good. Just because we are not satisfied, it
doesn't mean we do whatever we feel like. It takes a lot of effort, a
lot of courage. May be it feels bad, may be it hurts, but in that is
victory, in that is deliverance. This love of God has compelled me for
so many times and will compel me for the rest of my life as long as I
live. Halleluiah! As Paul writes in Ephesians 3:18-19
Ephesians 3:18-19 That you may be able
to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and
depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness
This love of God is such a mystery, but when you understand it
will revolutionize your life. Today, our youth are hopeless, sensuous,
confused and badly misguided. Today, I am happy for my struggles, for
if I did not struggle, I would not have known the love of God which
supersedes every imagination. Even, I would like to take the example of
Joyce Meyer, whom you all know. Even she was sexually abused by her own
dad for close to 17 years, before she was delivered. How do you think
she managed to forgive her dad if she did not know this incomprehensible
love of God? Now, how greatly is the Lord using her worldwide to share
his love with us? Now, thinking of love being shared, God did not
create you because He was lonely, but because God is love and love is
not selfish, but has to be shared: God wanted to share His love with
us. Can you imagine this? Now, coming back to the question:
Should We Continue in Sin?
This is very powerful. I pray
this will help you. I am again not advocating sin. There are still
things that I strictly follow to keep myself from falling prey to
the Devil and his schemes. But what I am trying to tell you is that
God loves you the way you are and gave His life to save you. God's
love is never limited to your performance, according to Romans 11:29
which states that the gifts and calling of God come without
repentance. Again, in John 15:16 Jesus states that we did not choose
Him but He chose us that we should go and bear fruit, and that our
fruit should remain. All this indicates that God loves us too much
that we should mess up. To understand this truth about whether we
need to sin, you need to read the entire chapters of Romans 5, 6, 7 &
8. I would not go into the entire chapter of Romans 5, but let us read
6 For when we were yet without
strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man
will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to
8 But God commendeth his love toward
us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. So, while
we were yet sinners died for us!!! How wonderful to know!!!
9 Much more then, being now justified
by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Here, we shall
be saved from wrath through His blood. This is too good to be true, but
this is the truth. It is not our righteousness, but the righteousness
through faith, the faith of Christ, according to RO 3:22, (KJV amplified
10 For if, when we were enemies, we
were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being
reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in
God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin
entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the
world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. There is no
knowledge of sin when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from
Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude
of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
Notice here, that all this was just representing what was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is
the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more
the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus
Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that
sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but
the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man's offence death
reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one
judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness
of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man's disobedience
many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made
20 Moreover the law entered, that the
offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more
21 That as sin hath reigned unto
death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life
by Jesus Christ our Lord.
How powerful, how wonderful to know
that it is God's grace that has abounded. Again,
Ephesians 2:8 You have been
saved by grace, through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the
gift of God.
This entire chapter is self explanatory that by the death
of Jesus Christ, His grace has abounded unto righteousness.
This means that we have been made
righteous by faith. By faith, we have peace with God through Jesus
Christ Romans 5:1. Even we have to believe in His grace through faith.
Still, the question may arise, "If grace abounds, then should we sin?"
God forbid, otherwise Christ died in vain. There is a greater thing
that is hidden in a mystery that has been hidden for ages and which the
God of this age has blinded, i.e., the Devil:
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god
of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the
light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should
shine unto them.
At the end of this message you should be able to
understand this hidden mystery that was revealed to Paul the apostle.
To understand further, please read:
1 What shall we say then? Shall we
continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are
dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as
were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
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.
I will explain about this newness of
life a little later in this message. Now, please continue to read.
5 For if we have been planted together
in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his
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.
7 For he that is dead is freed from
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we
believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised
from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto
sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your
mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as
instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God,
as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments
of righteousness unto God.
Now, Romans 6:6-13 says that even though
we have grace, we should not serve sin, because we have been freed from
sin (Romans 6:7). Of course, according to Deuteronomy 30:19, God has given us a
choice, and by sinning we are empowering the Devil to have authority
over our lives; that is the reason for a lot of problems today. We all
know and have all tried by our own efforts to fight against sin, but
haven't been able to do. Even though we might be better than the other,
but still we are not righteous, according to Romans 3:10. Again, Romans 3:23
says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Again Romans
6:23 states that the wages of sin is death. So, I argue how is it
possible to be delivered at all if it is based on performance. Galatians 5:4
says that whoever is justified by the law has fallen from grace. And
yet again, James 2:10 says whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet
offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Now, let us continue from Romans 6:14-23.
14 For sin shall not have dominion
over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we
are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
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?
true that you are the slaves of whom you obey. If you obey the devil
you will see him overpower you throughout life. The bible says in James
4:7 that we need to submit to God and then resist the devil and he will
flee from us. Most of us, in fact, have not truly submitted to God's
mighty hand who is able to deliver us. That is why we are still
suffering. Continue reading ...
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.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye
became the servants of righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men
because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your
members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so
now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when ye were the servants of
sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21 What fruit had ye then in those
things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22 But now being made free from sin,
and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the
end everlasting life.
Notice here that you have your fruit unto
holiness already, and in the end everlasting life. It has already been
given to you the day you truly receive Jesus in your heart. I will
explain later in this message.
Continue reading from Romans 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death; but
the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Now, your argument is being proved
correct that you have a choice and you should be angry with sin, because
the fear of the Lord is to hate evil – Proverbs 8:13. Please note that in
everything that I am saying I am not advocating sin or giving a license
for anyone to do that. I am trying to only present a truth that, trust
me, will bring joy and revelation about the word of God. Even, until
here, even though we have been freed from sin through the grace of
Jesus, which He gave us through His death on the cross, we still have to
be dead to sin, but alive in Christ (Romans 6:11). Ephesians 2:1 says that we
were already dead in trespasses. God commendeth his love toward us, in
that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Yes
brothers, Christ died for us. If you have gone through the previous
message of everlasting salvation, again, God is not angry with us
anymore and we have been perfected forever (Hebrews 10:14).
I will take up a few verses in Romans 8
to point out another interesting truth. Please study for yourselves.
It is awesome!!!
... to be carnally
minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity
against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can
So then they that are in the flesh
cannot please God.
Fantastic!!! Now read Romans 8:1-4 and 9:
There is therefore now no condemnation
to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in
Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
For what the law could not do, in that
it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness
of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law
might be fulfilled in us; who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Now, what does this mean, that there
is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after
the flesh but after the Spirit?
Again 2 Corinthians 5:21 says that;
2 Corinthians 5:21 Jesus became
sin for us who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of
God. So, in other words we have become the righteousness of God.
Righteousness of God by Faith
There is now a righteousness of God,
apart from the law that comes by the Faith of Jesus Christ – Romans 3:21-22
KJV Amp. This is awesome truth!!! Now there is a Faith of Jesus
Christ, which I will be dealing later in another book. Now, coming back
to walking in the Spirit, read Romans 8:9-18:
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in
the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man
have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Notice that Ye are
in the Spirit. This is profound, I tell you. If you understand this,
it is the most profound truth you will ever come to know. The entire
bible will come alive.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body
is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that
raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ
from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that
dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are
debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye
shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the
body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the
Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. As many as are led by the
Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit
of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness
with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs
of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him,
that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of
this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which
shall be revealed in us.
Isn't now the true light dawning on
you? This is not a new truth my brothers and sisters in Christ. Now,
we are not just mere human beings, but a spirit being as you just saw in
Romans 8:9. Halleluiah!!! Amen. Notice, in Romans 8:16 it says that:
Romans 8:16 The
Spirit bears witness with Our Spirit that we are the children of God.
So, there is something called The Spirit, which is The Holy Spirit, and
Our Spirit, which is the spirit on the inside of us.
This spirit on the inside of us is
nothing but the newness of life in Romans 6:4. As I said, this is not a
new teaching. This is a fulfillment of:
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will
I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away
the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
The qualities of this spirit of man is
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.
Praise the Lord!!!
1 Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart,
in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet
spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
Just look at this!!! Even 1 Peter 3:4
confirms Ephesians 4:23-24. So, this is not my own teaching, that is, what
the Word of God says. Halleluiah!!!
This has been spoken of in Jeremiah
31 Behold, the days come, saith the
LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with
the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that
I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to
bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake,
although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that
I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD,
I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts;
and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every
man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for
they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of
them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will
remember their sin no more.
And again, this is spoken of in Ezekiel
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water
upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all
your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
This talks about the new spirit or in
other words, the new creation; the new birth. John 1:12-13 says:
many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of
the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
This agrees with Romans 8:16-17 which
says that the Spirit (Holy Spirit) agrees with our spirit that we are
the children of God. That is why the Apostle Peter writes in 1 Peter 2:9:
1 Peter 2:9 Ye
are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar
people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you
out of darkness into his marvelous light.
I know this is a long message, but
very much I'm sure has blessed you. Let us read John 3:1-10:
1 There was a man of the Pharisees,
named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and
said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for
no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a
man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his
mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I
say unto thee, Except a man be born of water (Baptism – Romans 6:3-4) and
of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is
flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye
must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto
him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said unto him,
Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Now, the previous explanation refers
to Ezekiel 36:26. All this refers to the new creation, the new birth;
5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold all things are become new.
John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of
the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
6:17 ... he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
Oh! This is
Ephesians 3:17 It is by faith that Christ dwells in you.
Colossians 1:26-27 The
mystery that has been hidden for ages has been revealed to His saints
(us), which is Christ in you.
Now all this is in our
spirit, once we truly receive Jesus in our hearts, according to:
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
To accept Jesus in your heart, you
have to feel the need, you have to long for him. Unless you deny
yourself and die to the world, you cannot be born again, you cannot
receive Jesus in your heart Matthew 16:24.
Finally, coming back to Ezekiel 36:27:
27 And I will put my spirit within
you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my
judgments, and do them.
This is talking about the Holy Spirit,
prophesied again in;
Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young
men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon
the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Even the new birth is of the Holy
Spirit, as spoken by Jesus in John 3:6:
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh
is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you,
and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the
Lord our God shall call.
The Holy Spirit is given by the laying
of hands and after baptism:
15 Who, when they were come down,
prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none
of them: only they were baptized (immersion baptism) in the name of the
The word 'Baptism' comes from the
Greek word, 'Baptizo' which means to be fully wet. This is a separate
teaching and is important. I will be dealing with this also later.
17 Then laid they their hands on them,
and they received the Holy Ghost.
Once you receive the entire part of
this new creation, then 2 Corinthians 5:17 will be fulfilled and Romans 8:9 will
also be fulfilled. Praise the Lord for such an awesome truth. Aren't
you now thankful to God for what He has done, and won't you now be able
to live for Him according to:
Romans 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye
shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the
body, ye shall live.
But yet, first you need to be born
again, i.e. to receive Jesus into your hearts.
May this truth bring revelation and
set you free from every spiritual blindness and bondage of the Devil.
PRAISE THE LORD!!! HALLELUIAH!!! AMEN AND AMEN AND
