From 2010, revised..still needs some revision.
What is sin? How does disobedience to God actually occur? Exactly how is the Word of God not heard in instances and obeyed in others even by new creatures in Jesus Christ? Obviously, God is His Word and creates what He speaks and gets exactly from His Word what He wants in the end:
Jeremiah 1:12 And Jehovah said unto me, Thou hast well seen; for I am watchful over my word to perform it.
Isaiah 55:10,11 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall do that which I please, and it shall accomplish that for which I send it.
So why does God also say of His Word that some have not heard it and that disobedience occurs?
Psalm 58:3-5 The wicked go astray from the womb; they err as soon as they are born, speaking lies. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder which stoppeth her ear; Which doth not hearken to the voice of enchanters, of one charming ever so wisely.
Exactly how does that work? How does God as Creating Speech create us as new creatures and not create everyone who heard the same word order, perhaps even in the same speaking event?
Act 17:32-34 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked, and some said, We will hear thee again also concerning this. Thus Paul went out of their midst. But some men joining themselves to him believed; among whom also was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman by name Damaris, and others with them.
This we will see, from the Word of God is easily answered and it is indeed its own miracle to not understand it by those that mock. We will see the strange greatness of evil and why those habits evil displays cannot be avoided by it and why evil cannot be subject to and therefore perform the law of God, and that is why God destroys it in the end, yet controls it at all times.
Romans 8:5-9 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For 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 be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 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.
1 Corinthians 2:12-16 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Sin is an act?
When sin is defined as a mere act, that definition opens the door to helping many heresies to look as if they were sound doctrine in addition to deceiving God’s people and society on a host of issues. Any number of single acts can then be defined as sin, of which God makes no mention, by implying that such an act infringes on the possibility of other acts that are good and so forth. Throw technology into the mix; the behavioral changes people suffer by the means of technology for good and evil and any new device opens up new doors for Lucifer to make up sinful acts where in fact there are none. The lie of global warming and the associated human guilt therein is just one example of a lie of human guilt that is premised on both the lie of human free will and sin defined implicitly as an act.
Such a definition empowers heretics to rule over men by making up new acts that are supposedly sin and an accompanying ceremony as a forgiveness scheme to match as a means of controlling behavior.
In the case of “global warming”/”climate change”, the ‘act’ of sin is that you supposedly have free will as a default of being a human being and “something” has happened someplace else other than where you are and over which you never had control and it is ludicrous even inside the lie of free will that it is your fault yet you are charged only and expressly because you supposedly can’t get out of having a ‘free’ will and being alive and it being unavoidable that you do ‘acts’ all the time whether or not they are supposedly sin and that one or some of these acts were “inadvertent sins against the weather” and now a forgiveness scheme must be performed to ‘get you right with God again’. The forgiveness scheme is that you give up technological advantages that are both life saving and improve the quality of life you have as a penance for supposedly doing the ‘evil’ that made “the earth’s climate change’. Such lies as ‘global warming’ and ‘climate change’ are mere attempts to control behavior as “automatic guilt” schemes you supposedly cannot escape because those hurling the accusations are the same ones who taught you to supposedly be certain you have free will and it is the ‘having’ of free will that makes you supposedly “guilty” and “automatically” because it concerns a phenomenon that effects people in far distant places as a supposed result of a general population of which you are a part doing actions at all.
Quite literally, the definition of sin as a mere act empowers Lucifer to spread confusion and mayhem as he may on the premise that to stop him might be one of those forbidden acts by default. ( the interfaith movement, etc..) Women particularly fall prey to such antics on the premise some act may hurt someone’s feelings and doing so is a supposed sin-as-act. Even now those used of anti-Christ to speak the lie of ‘global warming’/”climate change” are saying those who ‘won’t admit’ to the supposed reality of their lie are heretics and sinners against God and His creation, even though they themselves are famous atheists and Christ-haters.
The definition of sin as a mere act empowers Lucifer specifically by empowering the lie of human free will.
There is no purpose for the lie of free will itself and it is meaningless even to those deceived by it unless sin is defined only and exclusively as an act.
If sin is simply an action, then there is at least plausible room within the speech that can create nothing to ask which actions please God and which displease Him and to then interpret the Scriptures as if they were non-creating speech in order to find answers for that exact question in every area of life. Saying the Bible is such a how-to-use-a-free-will instruction book is the unforgivable sin, because it equates the Word of God with Lucifer’s speech in the general effort to make of all language a Meta that all, including God, must supposedly share. That is exactly what Lucifer does through his deceived ones and doing the unforgivable sin (not sin-as-act) is their default and on-going piety. As far as they are concerned, if they were to stop those mere behaviors, they would no longer be Christian. In the deception that sin is a mere act, not only have they confounded what actions are supposedly pious before God in Jesus Christ, but think of anyone who doesn’t do those actions as behaviors as less of a Christian and supposedly unable to prove, even to God, that they are a Christian without them.
Because the supposed free will of man is held forth by Lucifer to be an integral part of the human make-up and as such supposedly both unavoidable and impossible to get rid of, free will can exist as long as human beings exist as a paradigm to those deceived by it. Thus the lie of free will combined with sin defined to be only an act seems to legitimize false priests in perpetuity; their forgiveness paradigms are made necessary as long as sin-as-an-act and free will can exist. Their lie empowers their station as priests. In Lucifer’s lie of free will combined with Lucifer’s lie that sin is just an act, as long as you have a free will, you can and will sin-as-act at some point and thus you will always need forgiveness and thus you will always need a priest to tell you what to do to be forgiven and to supposedly prove that forgiveness has been had. The faster the technological progress, as just one instance, the more excuses for rules, the more opportunities for bad acts to be defined on any premise whatsoever, the more the people will be bowed down in false guilt with regard to anything from animals, the planet to weather patterns in addition to the actual guilt before God of being actual sinners. In fact, they will, as they often do, mistake the true guilt of being a true sinner for the false guilt of being a false sinner in a lying religious system premised on idealized free will and sin defined an act.
Women in particular are susceptible to that system of lies as it has a real emotional dynamic within it that is vain and worthless but the feelings are actually there and that is truly what they worship. They will for instance, light candles to wood, stone, metal and plastic shaped into various images and yet sware they are not committing acts of idolatry because they know idolatry to be vain and are deceived the emotional payoff they are receiving as they falsely worship God can’t be vain because the mere feelings are real. They will kill their children in the womb and think themselves not guilty before God because there is some—any–emotional payoff from evil and wicked persons congratulating them for having done so and because they are deceived sin is an act and killing their children isn’t a sin-ful ‘act’.
Homosexuals are hardened in their sin because liars tell them that homosexuality “isn’t a sinful act”.
Implicitly defining sin as a mere act that has bad consequences in God’s heart makes a mockery of the sacrifice of Christ. Indeed, it is a lie that portrays God to have sent Christ Jesus merely to stop the pain of His Own heart concerning us rather than having sent Christ to pay for our sins and to separate us from our sins for our benefit at His expense. In the sin-as-act deception there is no reason or possibility for a separation of sin from us and no sense of such a separation. How does one become perfectly and permanently separate forever from an act one supposedly does or will do in the future? Yet God Says that we cannot sin after we have been born again in spirit and are free from sin in Christ, but that sin lives in our flesh.
1John 3:8,9 He that practises sin is of the devil; for from the beginning the devil sins. To this end the Son of God has been manifested, that he might undo the works of the devil. Whoever has been begotten of God does not practise sin, because his seed abides in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been begotten of God.
Romans 7:14-17 For we know that the law is spiritual: but *I* am fleshly, sold under sin.
For that which I do, I do not own: for not what I will, this I do; but what I hate, this I practise. But if what I do not will, this I practise, I consent to the law that it is right. Now then it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me.
That state of affairs immediately demonstrates a spirit of sin; sin as a living creature. It does not indicate sin as implied not to exist until the next ‘illegal act’ is performed by men as independent agents.
Sinners are sinners completely as a constant state of being in God’s eyes. But if sin were only an act, then sinners would be sinners only during the act and not sinners between illegal acts; they would be on again off again sinners and we as new creatures in Jesus Christ would have separated permanently from nothing real, but would have been mysteriously stopped from doing certain acts but not other acts and would have to be born again in Jesus Christ over and over after each ‘act’ of sin.
The spirit/living creature that works in sinners and even in the flesh, but not the spirit of new creatures in Jesus Christ who are still in flesh, is the sin. It does not constrain itself to particular sets of sinful acts, as would be expected in an individual as opposed to another individual. It knows no bounds or types of acts of itself it will not do or only must do given certain stimulus or times. Homosexuals are also witches who enjoy serving the spirit they have and can be murderers and thieves. Child molesters are breakers of other laws as well. Anyone can be a speeder and get a ticket as well as curse. Those homosexuals who are saved in new birth do not simply stop being a homosexual as a repeated sinful act; they are freed from all sin as is every sinner who is saved. There is no different salvation for each particular sets of acts; only a total salvation free from all sin in new birth in Jesus Christ because of the sacrifice on the cross of the Word of God incarnate who made the law and as would be expected because sin is a living creature that lives separate from us in its own being that can be permanently taken away from our being. The Word of God/Jesus Christ who created the law died to fulfill it in our stead and died even for those who had sinned prior to the giving of the law: sin is a living creature, but lives in reference solely to the Word of God and the law that the Word of God spoke expressly to make it clear to us.
God spoke the law into existence to make several things very plain:
1. we have a will but not a free will that can do as it pleases else we could have the ability to constantly do right by God and we have no such ability, ( Romans 7:15-17 For that which I do, I do not own: for not what I will, this I do; but what I hate, this I practise. But if what I do not will, this I practise, I consent to the law that it is right. Now then it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me. ) even though we are falsely accused by Lucifer of being being able to do exactly that and part of the background/foundational logic needed to make that accusation seem plausible is that we have that very supposed free will and that sin is an act ‘done in free will’.
- to make it plain that sin exists and is a living enemy, something we could not have known if we really had the free will and really did the ‘rules of God’; yet something we were always intended to know in God’s timing as being of the elect:
Romans 7:5-13 For when we were in the flesh the passions of sins, which were by the law, wrought in our members to bring forth fruit to death; but now we are clear from the law, having died in that in which we were held, so that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter.
What shall we say then? is the law sin? Far be the thought. But I had not known sin, unless by law: for I had not had conscience also of lust unless the law had said, Thou shalt not lust; but sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, wrought in me every lust; for without law sin was dead. But *I* was alive without law once; but the commandment having come, sin revived, but *I* died. And the commandment, which was for life, was found, as to me, itself to be unto death: for sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me . So that the law indeed is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Did then that which is good become death to me? Far be the thought. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death to me by that which is good; in order that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
Yet those who lie that ‘sin is an act’ –at all, constantly seek to destroy that understanding from you with the widget in non-creating speech that “if God told you to do something and you didn’t have the power/free will to do it, that wouldn’t be fair. And we know God is fair. Therefore we have a free will because God is fair.”
Note that in the lie of free will, the twin lies of having a ‘free will’ and ‘sin being an act’ necessitate logically a different purpose of the law that what is actually found in the Bible/God’s Word. That lie/false logic is that the purpose of the law is to give us “will-neutral/powerless instructions to live by that we must empower” ( as a theoretical free willed entity would logically need given a God-scenario and One that judges, etc..) and that not following one of those supposed non-creating instructions supposedly spoken in a non-creating speech is then the ‘act’ of sin. That they also constantly imply that “Man, God and Lucifer share the same speech in order to communicate’ and do away as much as they can in your understanding that God is a separate Speech from human speech/non-creating speech with different characteristics and personality and power then becomes plain to you after you have experienced and understood sin in its true character …after you have been its slave not just ‘doing the forbidden acts’ in its own ‘definition of sin’ and all the associated evils you did as default piety because of the false logic necessary to carry off the whole deception of that definition being the defining paradigms of your former religion, but in being born again in Jesus Christ from outside human speech, by the Word of God …and in seeing there was a side to the existence of sin that was about ‘don’t do’ as concerns you but really the Big Point was you were a being that used to be another being that was joined to evil but now you have been recreated because …God Loves You and is using you as a witness to His power and understanding as an object of mercy. You know good and well that there are those who are not only still inside those lies you have been saved from, but there some who will never be saved from them and will go to their graves stomping and yelling that they are ‘right’ and ‘righteous’.
They think that presenting the emotional payoff of complementing God, ( that has real effects in the deceived human heart ) will be enough to save themselves before God and to keep you emotionally occupied with supposed law-abiding busy-work as you supposedly diligently avoid doing the sinful ‘acts’ while merely noticing the short term emotional payoff as supposed ‘proof’ you are righteous before God, even though that is technically called enslavement of one man by another. They cause you to believe in lies so they can overpower you.
Luke 11:21,22 When the strong man armed keeps his own house, his goods are in peace; but when the stronger than he coming upon him overcomes him, he takes away his panoply in which he trusted, and he will divide the spoil he has taken from him.
But they are deceivers and the deceived: God as Word creates what He says: God is Creating Speech/His Own Word/Jesus Christ ..God creates in those He saves the obedience He demands after demonstrating the necessity of the salvation.
Note their ‘purpose of the law’ for the true heretics ( those that say men have a free will and that sin is an act ) is that law PRODUCES sin but doesn’t do away with sin …if the law wasn’t there you couldn’t ‘break it’ and therefore God is then the Author of Evil and of Guilt..because He gave you a law you must live by and simultaneously gave you a forgiveness paradigm in the temple ordinances …therefore He knew in advance that you would be guilty and the purpose of the law was merely to make and keep you guilty..to keep you in a religious system. The liars imply this constantly and say they are then, as priests, merely doing God’s work ..carrying out the religious system God intended. They admit what God did ..He gave us the Law and the Temple Ordinances, then twist the reason He did so in their non-creating speech in their lies so that their lies by which they overpower you will seem to be both logical and God-honoring.
These very same persons will then claim that those who oppose their doctrine of ‘free’ will and ‘sin-as-act’ “make God the author of evil” as if merely saying what God has said, that He creates evil, ..to wit:
Isaiah 45:5-7 I am Jehovah, and there is none else; there is no God beside me: I girded thee, and thou hast not known me; –that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the going down, that there is none beside me. I am Jehovah, and there is none else; forming the light and creating darkness, making peace and creating evil: I, Jehovah, do all these things.
..is supposedly evil. They imply the very same thing ..for a different reason that is in keeping with their overall purpose of their other lies ..and then claims that who says it is an evil person. They think to constantly portray themselves as those who most love God and always complement God as long as those compliments seem in keeping with their other lies.
They also imply that sin CANNOT exist without the law because without law sin is not known or understood. And yet Sin, as a living creature existed prior to the law being given.
The Law and Temple Ordinances was given through Moses after the Flood. Prior to the Flood sin was plainly evident and was indeed the creature responsible for the evil in Man that God saw as the reason for the Flood:
Genesis 4:6,7 And Jehovah said to Cain, Why art thou angry, and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, will not thy countenance look up with confidence ? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
You cannot be desired by an ‘act’ or rule over an ‘act’. Those are things that only pertain to living creatures.
Afterwards, sin was so unconstrained, it did as it pleased because of its hidden nature because of a lack of God’s Law and thus a lack of forgiveness on those through whom it committed evil acts except for the elect in Christ, that God killed all creatures except Noah and his family and the creatures specified to enter the ark that had not corrupted their flesh by genetic manipulations:
Genesis 6:4,5 In those days were the giants on the earth, and also afterwards, when the sons of God had come in to the daughters of men, and they had borne children to them; these were the heroes, who of old were men of renown. And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of Man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart only evil continually.
Genesis 6:6-9 And Jehovah repented that he had made Man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. And Jehovah said, I will destroy Man, whom I have created, from the earth–from man to cattle, to creeping things, and to fowl of the heavens; for I repent that I have made them. But Noah found favour in the eyes of Jehovah. This is the history of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect amongst his generations: Noah walked with God.
But a sin-as-act deception implies sin cannot exist without the law to define what it is that ought not be done and that no one could sin prior to the giving of the law to Moses. Such a deception makes God out to be unjust for having destroyed the world with water except for Noah and those with him. In addition, it is a pretense that God cannot govern without a law in place when in fact God governs justly prior to the law being given, during the presence of the law and after the law has no effect on us in His eyes because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on our behalf to fulfill it for us.
A sin-as-act deception also mysterizes the origins of sin, obscures the Fall of man and makes the Cross senseless. A man who supposedly is a on again off again sinner is not said to be completely Fallen, only temporarily sinful in mysterious, unpredictable instances that he immediately overcomes in the next instant and does not continue in a state of sinfulness and needs no outright salvation, much less for his whole being forever. He is idealized to need only more and better will-neutral information as he already exists to feed his idealized will power. A purpose of speech argument that denies the distinction between God as Word and all other speech pretends all speech is unified as a single whole thus having universal characteristics, is non-creating and will-neutral and that speech exists only to deliver such so-called information is tailor made for such an idealized, non-fallen man who supposedly seeks such information when he is not sinning-as-act in order to stop himself from sinning again. And yet he cannot stop no matter how much falsely idealized information he accumulates. Homosexuals cannot stop being homosexuals if they were to read entire libraries of such idealized information no matter what theatrics accompany such words.
Luke 6:43,44 For there is no good tree which produces corrupt fruit, nor a corrupt tree which produces good fruit; for every tree is known by its own fruit, for figs are not gathered from thorns, nor grapes vintaged from a bramble.
After having tried, many simply say no such thing exists as the correct information with which to enable themselves to stop sinning and since it does not exist, what they are doing must not be a sin. Thus they become mere heretics fleeing a heretical system and thinking to have made some sort of personal progress of emotional utility in doing so. On the one hand they seek what they call information as a device to supposedly empower what they call free will and on the other they denigrate the very speech they seek by saying all words are insufficient to know truth. They directly lay the blame on their own speech, which is the reality of the situation. Yet their own speech is all they have, they worship it and it denies through them that God as Word exists. All they are left with as a common sense is that their god-as-word is indeed a god, could give them power to stop if it wanted to, but because it doesn’t, homosexuality must be okay with ‘god’. So it is with all sinners in each particular of the creature that is sin.
Sin is a living creature, not a mere act. Acts by one party, in free will ideology are spontaneous ‘decisions’ of that one party. They are not another party who is said, as sin is described by God to wait on the first party ( ..it lieth at the door ), or that killed the first party and took control of them ( as in “it slew me” ) and they do not dwell in the first party ( as in no good thing dwells in flesh..evil is there..) or fight against the Holy Spirit in the first party. Yet that is exactly what God Says of sin: it was lying at the door to Cain; it slew Paul before his new birth and then dwelt in his flesh and fights against the Holy Spirit; is the cause of Paul not being able to do as he pleases in Christ. The whole reason for a new body made without hands to be delivered to us at the end of days is a body/flesh without sin co-habitating in it with us who are now new creatures in Jesus Christ:
Romans 7:14-25 For we know that the law is spiritual: but *I* am fleshly, sold under sin. For that which I do, I do not own: for not what I will, this I do; but what I hate, this I practise. But if what I do not will, this I practise, I consent to the law that it is right. Now then it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, good does not dwell: for to will is there with me, but to do right I find not. For I do not practise the good that I will; but the evil I do not will, that I do. But if what *I* do not will, this I practise, it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me. I find then the law upon *me* who will to practise what is right, that with *me* evil is there. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring in opposition to the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which exists in my members. O wretched man that I am ! who shall deliver me out of this body of death? I thank God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then *I* *myself* with the mind serve God’s law; but with the flesh sin’s law.
Sin defined as an act doesn’t explain how God through a Christian can do an exact look-a-like action of what an evil person does and not be guilty. Killing, for instance, cannot be distinguished between murder and self defense or justice if all were done in free will and sin is just an act. Sin defined as an act makes God seem hypocritical and empowers moral relativism ( equating all instances of an act as equally moral or immoral). That was and is a purpose of defining sin as an act: to criminalize justice.
The definition of sin as an act is therefore a common element in all false religion and all attempts to control men politically: the breaking of rules in idealized free will. In their own words, taken from sources online ( note the symbiosis between the lie of human free will and sin defined as an act in their own writings ):
From: the Catholic Encyclopedia ( http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14004b.htm ) Nov 30, 2010
Nature of Sin: (Thomas Aquinas, called Saint by the Romanists, wrote “De Malo” (“On Evil”) and is revered as a great authority in those circles. He is referenced by them frequently..)
Sin is nothing else than a morally bad act (St. Thomas, “De malo”, 7:3), an act not in accord with reason informed by the Divine law. God has endowed us with reason and free-will, and a sense of responsibility; He has made us subject to His law, which is known to us by the dictates of conscience, and our acts must conform with these dictates, otherwise we sin (Romans 14:23). In every sinful act two things must be considered, the substance of the act and the want of rectitude or conformity (St. Thomas, I-II:72:1). The act is something positive. The sinner intends here and now to act in some determined matter, inordinately electing that particular good in defiance of God’s law and the dictates of right reason. The deformity is not directly intended, nor is it involved in the act so far as this is physical, but in the act as coming from the will which has power over its acts and is capable of choosing this or that particular good contained within the scope of its adequate object, i.e. universal good (St. Thomas, “De malo”, Q. 3, a. 2, ad 2um). God, the first cause of all reality, is the cause of the physical act as such, the free-will of the deformity (St. Thomas I-II:89:2; “De malo”, 3:2). The evil act adequately considered has for its cause the free-will defectively electing some mutable good in place of the eternal good, God, and thus deviating from its true last end.
It is little wonder that Aquinas is revered by the priests of Rome and called Saint by them in non-creating speech. He put most of the work in for them, having loosely copied Aristotle, in making up definitions that mandate their jobs to those they or another false religion has deceived human free will is real.
God has well spoken of him and them in:
Habakkuk 15-17 They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad. Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous. Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
Judaism: Encyclopedia of Judaism: ( www.answers.com/topic/sin )
An action which breaks a law or, alternatively, the failure to observe a positive Commandment. In Judaism, emphasis is placed on acts of commission or omission which go against the Divine law rather than on the theological concept of sin. In every case, the sinner is morally accountable to God, both for sins against man and for infractions of ritual law.
“Becoming Jewish means that most of what you were taught about spirituality until now will be irrelevant, and in many cases wrong. You must drop the religious beliefs taught you by whatever other religion(s) you once followed or read about. People sometimes ask me, “Can I convert to Judaism and still believe in Jesus?” The answer is no. This is not something negotiable in Judaism. …And you will have to learn many rules. ”
The whole thing about “becoming Jewish” and other religions being irrelevant is a joke..other religions are EXACTLY the same in that they claim free will and sin-as-act. The same concept as the Catholics, but a different group of people want to be in charge as priests and say who gets forgiven for what. They want their own franchise exactly like the nations to this day and work day and night on distinguishing their franchise from someone else’s.
From: The General Concept of Sin in Islam
“A fundamental precept of Islam is that Human nature is essentially good. There are many elements to Human nature and each one has the potential to bring benefits.
In general we can say that a sin is committed when someone causes harm to themselves or to others or to any part of creation. The guilt depends on the intention of the sinner. In its most extreme form someone does deliberately harmful and destructive acts rejecting any appeals to do what is for their own benefit never mind what is beneficial for others. They may claim that it makes no difference anyway since existence is pointless and therefore have no gratitude for the benefits they have in life.
The contrast to this is someone who tries to improve himself, others and all of creation. They believe in God and are always grateful to Him for all they have in life. Their works to improve creation flow from their will to please God.
Human beings have the capacity to sin largely as a result of having the capacity to plan. When someone plans their efforts, they need to be able to suppress their natural desires for a time. This is quite different from animals that live from moment to moment obeying their perceptions of the present and their instinctive drives. This is indeed a dramatic difference. Human beings are able to look to the future – conceptualise it and form an intention to act. This conscious intention can override even the most powerful of our instincts. Through it we have capacity to cause ourselves harm in the short term in order to realise the greater good in the long term. As an inevitable part of this we gain the potential to cause ourselves harm, i.e. the potential to sin.”
Note the direct appeal to free will in the supposed “ability to plan.” as well as in the following “skilled mind” scenario.
Buddhism: from ( http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/budethics.htm )
Essentially, according to Buddhist teachings, the ethical and moral principles are governed by examining whether a certain action, whether connected to body or speech is likely to be harmful to one’s self or to others and thereby avoiding any actions which are likely to be harmful. In Buddhism, there is much talk of a skilled mind. A mind that is skilful avoids actions that are likely to cause suffering or remorse.
1) To undertake the training to avoid taking the life of beings. This precept applies to all living beings not just humans. All beings have a right to their lives and that right should be respected.
2) To undertake the training to avoid taking things not given. This precept goes further than mere stealing. One should avoid taking anything unless one can be sure that is intended that it is for you.
3) To undertake the training to avoid sensual misconduct. This precept is often mistranslated or misinterpreted as relating only to sexual misconduct but it covers any overindulgence in any sensual pleasure such as gluttony as well as misconduct of a sexual nature.
4) To undertake the training to refrain from false speech. As well as avoiding lying and deceiving, this precept covers slander as well as speech which is not beneficial to the welfare of others.
5) To undertake the training to abstain from substances which cause intoxication and heedlessness. This precept is in a special category as it does not infer any intrinsic evil in, say, alcohol itself but indulgence in such a substance could be the cause of breaking the other four precepts.
These are the basic precepts expected as a day to day training of any lay Buddhist. On special holy days, many Buddhists, especially those following the Theravada tradition, would observe three additional precepts with a strengthening of the third precept to be observing strict celibacy. The additional precepts are:
6) To abstain from taking food at inappropriate times. This would mean following the tradition of Theravadin monks and not eating from noon one day until sunrise the next.
7) To abstain from dancing, singing, music and entertainments as well as refraining from the use of perfumes, ornaments and other items used to adorn or beautify the person. Again, this and the next rule.
To undertake the training to abstain from using high or luxurious beds are rules regularly adopted by members of the Sangha and are followed by the layperson on special occasions.
..while the dogma most Buddhist proclaim is that Buddhism has no rules “like other religions”.
Karma is understood within Hinduism-and Buddhism and Jainism as well-as the fundamental and universal law of cause and effect. When a person does something, it has an effect:good actions have good effects, bad actions have bad effects.Thoughts have effects as well. An individual person carries around these accumulated effects, this karma. Over the course of a single lifetime, an individual performs countless actions, has countless thoughts; all of these bits of karma-good and bad-are something like spiritual baggage, or deposits in a spiritual bank account. When a person dies, all of his or her karma is, in a sense, added up.A “positive balance” leads to a more positive rebirth; a “negative balance” leads to a more negative rebirth.
Two concepts are essential here:the first is that of the atman, the permanent self; the second is that of samsara, the cycle of rebirth or reincarnation. Hinduism holds that just as the world is created, maintained, destroyed, and recreated endlessly, so too people are born, live, die, and are reborn endlessly.
Note that in karmic religions, the notion of which act is actually a bad or good act is framed to be as general as possible while appealing to the generalities of other false religions. In truth, what is called karma is dependent on having what are portrayed in one way as competing religions that the adherent knows of and knows of somewhat in-depth (as far as non-creating speech can reach) and in other ways as simply different but non-competing paths to the same end. Thus they are students of a sort of other religions. That is because as a whole, karmic religions are a control system over people, just as all false religion, but have the additional spirit of being a symbiont that needs other religions to define each act as good or evil for their own adherents to know what is good or bad and thus import as concepts of having built up good or bad karma. Then the karmic religion simply moves on to the next religion as one false religion replaces another over time and thus gets the false reputation for being ancient or older than the newest religion in that particular area simply because its general approach is to change with the religious environment. Those in karmic religions are thus always in flux and what one believes is bad karma does not bind another and thus they avoid any notion of absolute morals. They also avoid societal stability, a thing plain in the populations of those who worship the ever shifting concepts of right and wrong acts in karmic religions.
Note as well that if sin is defined as a mere act, why couldn’t who is not born again in Christ, but who supposedly ‘converts’ to Christianity, get his concept of sin and what he is supposedly to avoid doing in self-will, from Buddha seeing that most Western Christians got their false notions of sin from Aristotle? Neither is of Christ. But both make possible the appearance of religion and self-piety and the ‘ex-‘ Buddhist is much more free to do he pleases seeing that he can shift his idea of right and wrong from false religion to false religion and still maintain the generalized notion of karma. That is exactly what is already happening with what is called New Age Christianity.
“To commit sin is to willfully disobey God’s commandments or to fail to act righteously despite a knowledge of the truth.”
Footnote: I have not added in Protestant or what is called Reformed definitions of sin, as most of them will heartily agree with the others or state a definition of sin in such a way as to be ambiguous while seeming to plainly praise and glorify God such as “not doing the will of God” ,etc. Even when they are ‘undecided’, they are seen to preach and defend doctrine from within those walls. They have been taken in a device of Lucifer and at the least, God has yet to open their eyes to it. That is in addition to the reality that young persons sent off to college and the individual who privately pursues these questions of any age cannot avoid encountering a complete blanket over most of reality that sin is only and exclusively an act no matter what particular act may be titled sin. It is taught as such in philosophy departments in every tongue of men, religious education efforts, and is the societal paradigm of our day portrayed in every work of art and media because of its natural support for the lie of human free will, which is also the thoughts of all fallen men and women.
It is plain that all false religion stands in unity as to the nature of sin. So do all false Christians.
But if sin is more than an act, what is it?
If there is a deception concerning sin, what is it? We know why Lucifer would like everyone to be deceived sin is a just an act. But how did he do it and why?
Lucifer merely spoke ..and spoke ..and spoke ..and spoke. The definition of anything according to Lucifer is just a combination of words in the speech that can create nothing. One set of words defines another, which defines another, which raises a question, which defines another. Etc. Once in that loop of worthlessness ( and Fallen Man is in that loop from physical birth by the witness of God, as a result of the Fall of Man ) the definition of anything seems ..just ahead, as the non-creating speech necessitates more of itself to those inside it. The need for new definitions is driven by the dissatisfaction with the old as a result of the non-creating character of anti-Christ. Lucifer poses a problem he cannot solve and which God will not solve because it is a lie from the language of lies. The adherent to that entire speech is then forced off and running to obtain rest from the dissatisfaction by saying a lot of words and doing a lot of emotion in non-creating speech.
But the understanding of what sin and moral evil actually is not to be found anywhere or anytime in Lucifer’s language. It is not to be understood in the language of the father of lies. Men, trapped in that language can only be deceived they understand. That is why God Says:
1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Sin is not a what, it is a who.
In general, when liars make something out to be non-living that is in fact a living creature, the logic of a ‘what’ versus a ‘who’ are naturally confounded and opposed in those that are being deceived.
Sin is a living creature; a spirit that does evil acts through the flesh. The deception, exactly like the deception of speech itself is that sin is pretended to be a what, not a who. The varieties of the explanation in non-creating speech of why sin is an act and how it is to be done or avoided in self-will are many. But they all claim it is an action alone whether or not they quibble over the act or the consequences the act has had.
There is no one in non-creating speech to say where sin came from, other than the strained efforts of Lucifer to manufacture the answer by joining the definition of sin and speech as a what instead a who and to supposedly praise God by saying it is evil to say God, as the sole Creator of all things, created and creates evil. There is no one to say where sin will go or where it will be seen next other than God as Word; no salvation from it other than in God as Word. In Buddhism for instance, there is no need for personal salvation into God from sin or atonement for having been in sin and certainly no rescue to be born again outside of human speech. In the speech that can create nothing, everything of God is made nonsensical and the folly God expressly says man sees in God through the lens of non-creating speech is called science and great learning.
That sin is a living creature makes plain that there is a separation from sin and an end to sin because there are distinctions between creatures and individuals. Already the liars are speculating that sin will exist for ever because they theorize human free will will last forever. And of course, whoever is deceived free will exists and exists forever will equally be deceived that the pastor or priest under which they serve that teaches them they have free will has been established for all time as a necessary intermediary to teach them a forgiveness paradigm at each step of their existence.
These are Scripture proofs as spirit and life that sin is a living creature and not simply an act. While sin is lawlessness, a living creature is doing the lawlessness beyond any supposed free will of man.
The evidence that sin is a living creature in summary:
1. sin is repeatedly spoken of by God as doing things and having attributes of living creatures
d. bringing another living creature, Death, into the world which is thrown into the lake of fire at the end of days
e. having its own arch-typical representative man: The Man of Sin. If sin is a mere act and all men are sinners as merely those who do repeated evil acts in free will, why is there a singular Man OF Sin?
f. overpowering those to whom it is given
g. fighting against the Holy Spirit in us
2. sin is spoken of as:
a. we are able to get free from it in Christ
b. to die to it ..to have no more a part of us in the new birth as would be impossible were sin a mere ‘act’
c. to be indicative of a state of being when given to it, not simply a certain set of acts that appear out of nowhere
3. The object of the Holy Spirit’s hatred. The Holy Spirit fights the spirit of sin in the flesh, not an abstract which winks in and out of reality, only leaving behind an act performed. The Holy Spirit does not hate abstracts or non-entities.
Plainly, at the least, we have cause to suspect a false definition of sin being prevalent in the Church, knowing that the truth can only be understood in Christ as the Incarnate Word of God and that human speech is not the Word of God and that men are fallen. Satan must counterfeit everything he can to further his lying enterprise and his warfare against the human race. A false definition of sin hides his activity, particularly when coupled with the lie of human free will.
But even beyond such suspicion that may prompt guess-work or speculation, we have the Word of God on the whole matter and in detail. What follows is the biblical evidence that sin is a living creature and the speech that is not-God.
1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Plainly, the denial that the Incarnate Word of God, Jesus Christ, was indeed Incarnated in flesh as Jesus Christ is both an act of speech of the speech that is not the Word of God and is an act predicated to defend a doctrine that all language is not a spirit, but an abstract tool men supposedly use in free will. If all language is just an abstract and not a living spirit, as the speech that is not-God claims, how did the Word of God become flesh? Plainly there had to be a time when he was not flesh but then became flesh. That means the Word of God is alive and was alive before His birth through the at-that-time virgin Mary and that understanding destroys the notion that speech is just one large, abstract meta that all must equally use as they haphazardly may in supposed free will and destroys in particular the notion that Lucifer, Satan and God all speak the same language. The denial that Jesus Christ is the Word of God is the foundation for the defense of all of anti-Christ’s other lies.
Matthew 12:36,37 But I say unto you, that every idle word which men shall say, they shall render an account of it in judgment-day: for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
The Living Speech/Spirit that is Sin: Pre-Incarnate Anti-Christ: Belial
I. The Speech of Sin/Non-creating Speech is alive and Not the Word of God.
God is constantly pointing out the worthlessness and powerlessness of Lucifer’ speech and its non-creating nature and even speaks to the non-creating speech itself
II. The speech of sin is Belial and is the anti-Christ (the anti-Word of God)
III. It is the speech of and mind of men, of death and of Lucifer
IV. The Speech of sin to be silenced at the end of days only by Christ
I. The Speech of Sin is Alive and Not the Word of God and is not yet incarnate.
A. That sin is a living creature that is opposed to the Word of God:
God speaks of it as a living creature to be ruled over by Cain who was seduced further by it after God spoke of it so that Cain killed Abel:
Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, will not [thy countenance] look up [with confidence]? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and unto thee [shall be] his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
Abstracts and acts do not “lie at the door” nor do they have desires nor is there a rule of law over them as if they were a person.
The rule of God’s law is over fallen men. We are plainly said to be free from God’s Law and the judgments of that Law in the new birth in Jesus Christ. The rule of secular law is over all flesh in perpetuity with no hope of salvation from it. New creatures in Jesus Christ are free from God’s law in Christ,“ye are no longer under law..“ because the law of God has its application to those who cannot hear the Word of God that Spoke it.
- God speaks of sin as a living creature that men must die to in order to live to God. Men do not die in reality to an abstract to then live to reality. Sin is truly deceiving men now and is no metaphor or allegory alluding to something else. Indeed it is that very lie in the speech of sin that deceives many to this hour.
Romans 6:10 For in that he has died, he has died to sin once for all; but in that he lives, he lives to God.
3. God speaks of sin ruling over men; men in bondage to sin. Men are not in bondage to something that is not yet but that is now ( i.e. sin is not simply an act by men in an idealized free will. One is not ruled over by an act that has not happened yet or that happened previously. Men are in present bondage to a present creature and what exists in reality now. )
Romans 6:17,18 But thanks [be] to God, that ye were bondmen of sin, but have obeyed from the heart the form of teaching into which ye were instructed. Now, having got your freedom from sin, ye have become bondmen to righteousness.
4. God speaks through Paul that sin has killed and is killing men:
Romans 7:11 for sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew [me].
Abstracts such as acts do not kill. Living creatures kill.
5. God speaks of sin ruling as a principality in the earthly tabernacle ( the flesh ) of even the real, literal new creation in Jesus Christ:
Romans 7:17-21 Now then [it is] no longer I [that] do it, but the sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, good does not dwell: for to will is there with me, but to do right [I find] not. For I do not practise the good that I will; but the evil I do not will, that I do. But if what I do not will, this I practise, [it is] no longer I [that] do it, but the sin that dwells in me. I find then the law upon me who will to practise what is right, that with me evil is there.
Sin plainly overwhelms the will of the flesh.
Sin, the living creature in Paul’s flesh ( “that is, in my flesh” ) as distinguished from Paul the new creature in Jesus Christ, had control of the flesh. Thus the Spirit of God in us as new creatures fights the flesh: lusts of the flesh and the works of the flesh.
6. Sin presented to be a mere act is not fighting anything, is not doing anything, and literally doesn’t exist until an act of lawlessness has been performed, after which it promptly disappears leaving the victim guilty because of a lie called free will. Sin is supposed here and there and unpredictable and unknown ..in the lie of free will as the speech of sin.
Yet the Holy Spirit fights against the will of the flesh and the sin that controls the flesh. The Holy Spirit does not fight against an abstract, variably known as a ‘decision’, ‘an intellectual idea’, or an act that comes from nowhere and goes nowhere after it is performed. The Holy Spirit is not an imbecile chasing butterflies or merely helplessly mole-bashing ‘acts’.
Galatians 5:16 -23 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
7. Sin’s dwelling place is in the earthly tabernacle which clothes the real, literal new creation in Jesus Christ and in the flesh and heart of men who have not been born again. Abstracts and acts yet to be committed or committed in the past do not dwell anywhere. Sin makes its presence known by the tongue as well as the flesh:
James 3:5-16 Thus also the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. See how little a fire, how large a wood it kindles! and the tongue [is] fire, the world of unrighteousness; the tongue is set in our members, the defiler of the whole body, and which sets fire to the course of nature, and is set on fire of hell. For every species both of beasts and of birds, both of creeping things and of sea animals, is tamed and has been tamed by the human species; but the tongue can no one among men tame; [it is] an unsettled evil, full of death-bringing poison. Therewith bless we the Lord and Father, and therewith curse we men made after [the] likeness of God. Out of the same mouth goes forth blessing and cursing. It is not right, my brethren, that these things should be thus.Does the fountain, out of the same opening, pour forth sweet and bitter? Can, my brethren, a fig produce olives, or a vine figs? Neither [can] salt [water] make sweet water. Who [is] wise and understanding among you; let him shew out of a good conversation his works in meekness of wisdom; but if ye have bitter emulation and strife in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This is not the wisdom which comes down fRomans above, but earthly, natural, devilish. For where emulation and strife [are], there [is] disorder and every evil thing.
- Sin is not subject to the law of God: Rather Fallen Men are subject to the law because of sin
Romans 8:7 Because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God; for neither indeed can it be:
The mind of the flesh is the mind of sin, a living creature. Living creatures have minds, not ‘acts’. Nor do we need to make a mystery out of the identity of the “mind of the flesh”. It is not our mind, as we have the mind of Christ, and are different, new creatures than our flesh, yet there remains in the flesh a mind not us or of us that was in fact always there that the experience of new birth has revealed to be “was never us”, a lair that had, prior to our new birth, literally claimed to be our fundamental identity that kept saying within us that we had free will, sin was an act and there was no new birth or Word of God. That mind of the flesh is the mind of sin, called out, forced into action, identified in front of us to us by God.
Ephesians 2:1-6 and *you*, being dead in your offences and sins– in which ye once walked according to the age of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience: among whom *we* also all once had our conversation (non-creating speech ..my own note) in the lusts of our flesh, doing what the flesh and the thoughts willed to do, and were children, by nature, of wrath, even as the rest: but God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love wherewith he loved us, (we too being dead in offences,) has quickened us with the Christ, (ye are saved by grace,) and has raised us up together, and has made us sit down together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,
The effect and one purpose of the law of God is to stir up sin and to show us what sin is by the means of what sin does in the presence of the law of God. The law is a light to shine on the very means of it being broken. Sin as a creature needs the Word of God to survive as any other creature; yet loathes God as Word and is not God as Word.
Romans 7:7,8 What shall we say then? is the law sin? Far be the thought. But I had not known sin, unless by law: for I had not had conscience also of lust unless the law had said, Thou shalt not lust; but sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, wrought in me every lust; for without law sin was dead.
Sin is said to live by the means of God’s Word as law, yet be unable to be righteous in the law of God. It is the mind of fallen man:
Romans 8:6,7 For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit life and peace. Because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God; for neither indeed can it be:
And thus those who are subject to sin cannot know the things of God and cannot please God:
1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him; and he cannot know them because they are spiritually discerned;
The Coming Incarnation of Sin the Living Creature: The Man of Sin
2 Thessalonians 2:1 -12 Now we beg you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, nor troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as if it were by us, as that the day of the Lord is present. Let not any one deceive you in any manner, because it will not be unless the apostasy have first come, and the man of sin have been revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself on high against all called God, or object of veneration; so that he himself sits down in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Do ye not remember that, being yet with you, I said these things to you? And now ye know that which restrains, that he should be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness already works; only there is he who restrains now until he be gone, and then the lawless one shall be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus shall consume with the breath of his mouth, and shall annul by the appearing of his coming; whose coming is according to the working of Satan in all power and signs and wonders of falsehood, and in all deceit of unrighteousness to them that perish, because they have not received the love of the truth that they might be saved. And for this reason God sends to them a working of error, that they should believe what is false, that all might be judged who have not believed the truth, but have found pleasure in unrighteousness.
Sin defined as an act is so defined in order to render non-sensical to the mind of the flesh that currently rules over Fallen men the truth of the future INCARNATION of Sin in the flesh. Just as Jesus Christ being the Incarnate Word of God is continually being non-sensical to those who are deceived that there is only a single non-creating speech in total reality and that ‘that language’ is an abstract that men use ‘in free will’ and to render the Word of God as supposed subset of human/non-creating speech, so the notion of a Incarnate Sin with a mind they currently are deceived is their own mind is being nonsensical to those same individuals.
But God plainly declares that the man of sin will come, preceded by apostasy, and the specific apostasy that mandates he be mistake for God by those he has ‘amazed’ by appearing at all, in the face of all their common sense to the contrary. For having been deceived that sin is an act and that men have free will, he will appear to be something other than the physical manifestation of their own thoughts ( for they will still be deceived there is no other creature that has a mind of its own in their flesh ) and when he proclaims his supposed ‘omnipresence’ in total reality and demonstrates to them his control of their thoughts and emotions, they will naturally worship him. How can you fight all of your own thoughts ..and if they turn out to be “a god” you can’t contend against, worshiping him-as-them them makes a certain sense and is in fact unavoidable, NOT a ‘choice’.
Revelation 13:4-18 And they did homage to the dragon, because he gave the authority to the beast; and they did homage to the beast, saying, Who is like to the beast? and who can make war with it? And there was given to it a mouth, speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to it authority to pursue its career forty-two months. And it opened its mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and those who have their tabernacle in the heaven. And there was given to it to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and there was given to it authority over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation; and all that dwell on the earth shall do it homage, every one whose name had not been written from the founding of the world in the book of life of the slain Lamb. If any one has an ear, let him hear. If any one leads into captivity, he goes into captivity. If any one shall kill with the sword, he must with the sword be killed. Here is the endurance and the faith of the saints. And I saw another beast rising out of the earth; and it had two horns like to a lamb, and spake as a dragon; and it exercises all the authority of the first beast before it, and causes the earth and those that dwell in it to do homage to the first beast, whose wound of death was healed. And it works great signs, that it should cause even fire to come down from heaven to the earth before men. And it deceives those that dwell upon the earth by reason of the signs which it was given to it to work before the beast, saying to those that dwell upon the earth to make an image to the beast, which has the wound of the sword, and lived. And it was given to it to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should also speak, and should cause that as many as should not do homage to the image of the beast should be killed. And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that they should give them a mark upon their right hand or upon their forehead; and that no one should be able to buy or sell save he that had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of its name. Here is wisdom. He that has understanding let him count the number of the beast: for it is a man’s number; and its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
Note that AFTER the world has received the complete testimony of God and all the truth has been plainly declared to them, then the man of sin and his fellow conspirators make war against the saints and God gives them power to overcome the saints so that all those on earth who had doubts and were wavering on the fence will be thoroughly deceived to worship the beast and the man of sin.
Revelation 11:4-7 These are the two olive trees and the two lamps which stand before the Lord of the earth; and if any one wills to injure them, fire goes out of their mouth, and devours their enemies. And if any one wills to injure them, thus must he be killed. These have power to shut the heaven that no rain may fall during the days of their prophecy; and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth as often as they will with every plague. And when they shall have completed their testimony, the beast who comes up out of the abyss shall make war with them, and shall conquer them, and shall kill them:
Revelation 3:15,16 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. Thus because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spue thee out of my mouth.
Revelation 21:7,8 He that overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be to him God, and he shall be to me son. But to the fearful and unbelieving, and sinners , and those who make themselves abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
B. God as Word constantly pointing out the powerlessness and worthlessness of men and Lucifer’ speech and all religious concepts within that speech, to include the notion that one can choose God to be savior or anything else.
Isaiah 41:21-24 Produce your cause, saith Jehovah; bring forward your arguments, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forward, and declare to us what shall happen: shew the former things, what they are, that we may give attention to them, and know the end of them; –or let us hear things to come: declare the things that are to happen hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods; yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be astonished, and behold it together. Behold, ye are less than nothing, and your work is of nought; an abomination is he that chooseth you.
..which is as much to say “an abomination is he that is deceived he is actually performing in reality what you are telling him are his religious precepts and making himself righteous before God.”
And also note that every time in the Scriptures that the word “choose” is used (because that is a favorite supposed proof that “God says men have free will”..that the word ‘choose’ is in the Bible at all, while they hide the distinction between the Word of God and non-creating speech/sion/Belial ) it is in reference to an evil that has happened or is about to happen; it is a word particularly spoken to the wicked by God and among the wicked to themselves.
Psalm 94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
Psalm 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
C. Entrance of Sin into the World
God used Satan to speak the fall of man even as God created the Fall of Man by speaking through Adam:
Genesis 2:23,24 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
There is no doubt or uncertainty in Man until sin speaks through the serpent the first question in all of Scripture and that question specifically challenges God’s Word. The woman, never having before heard any other speech than the Word of God did not understand the that the word of sin was not the Word of God but an outright different speak that could create nothing. Being cast out of the garden was not simply in regard to eating the forbidden fruit. It was also in regard to Adam and Eve’s having eaten the fruit and mixed the knowledge of good and evil with the speech of sin by Adam’s hearkening, literally giving ear and place to the voice of his wife; to the spirit that was now in his wife, which was the living creature and only alternate to the Word of God, the sin now in her flesh. Adam gave ear to an alien speech that was not the Word of God. God does not say simply “Because thou hast eaten..” but because he gave ear to his wife’s voice in which was the speech of sin and then ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was not simply “a generic lawless act” out of nowhere or in ‘free’ will.
Genesis 3:17-19 And to Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed be the ground on thy account; with toil shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life; and thorns and thistles shall it yield thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, until thou return to the ground: for out of it wast thou taken. For dust thou art; and unto dust shalt thou return.
The voice of his wife was the voice of sin speaking through a possessed and deceived Eve. But Adam was not deceived. The on-going fall is that deception by sin and subsequent ignorance, enslavement and death in men that all speech is really one speech and only one speech exists: that real death as a result of sin possessing, totally deceiving and speaking through all men. The common speech of men is the speech that sin speaks through them. It is all they know, not only as supposedly what knowledge or wisdom is but as speech and what to say in any given instant. This speech can create nothing yet speaks on merely to spread itself.
II. Sin is Belial/Satan/the anti-Christ
All speech that is not expressly the Word of God He speaks through us is an abominable offering through the mouth to God.
Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, will not [thy countenance] look up [with confidence]? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and unto thee [shall be] his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
A sin-offering (the literal rendering of the word ’sin’ in the above revelation), an offering of its own words by sin lay at the door of Cain’s mouth. God then pronounces with His Word the same on Cain and sin that God had formerly pronounced on Eve concerning the relationship between her and her husband. God had formerly said as a creating act of His Word, that Eve’s desire would be for her husband and he would rule over her because of the sin being in her, having had entrance through her ears such that she dis-obeyed God:
Gen 3:16 To the woman he said, I will greatly increase thy travail and thy pregnancy; with pain thou shalt bear children; and to thy husband shall be thy desire, and he shall rule over thee.
God then says this very thing to Cain, indicating a further fall through the voice of sin in him that would effectively be his wife and be joined to him in oneness: the speech of sin. (..and the two shall become one…)
Thereafter God in His Holy Scriptures details the sons of wickedness, the sons of the devil, the sons of Belial (which are all the same) . The righteous are distinguished from them constantly as well as the constant antagonism between the children of Belial and the Children of God, the children of the flesh and the children of the Spirit of God and as conversational attacks:
2 Samuel 23:6,7 But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands: But the man that shall touch them must be fenced with iron and the staff of a spear; and they shall be utterly burned with fire in the same place.
Deuteronomy 13:13 There are men, children of Belial, gone out from among you, and they have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, whom ye have not known;
1Samuel 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not Jehovah.
1Sa 25:17 And now know and consider what thou wilt do, for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household; and he is such a son of Belial, that one cannot speak to him.
Proverbs 6:12-15 A man of Belial, a wicked person, is he that goeth about with a perverse mouth; he winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; deceits are in his heart; he deviseth mischief at all times, he soweth discords. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly: in a moment shall he be broken, and without remedy.
Proverbs 16:27,28 A man of Belial diggeth up evil, and on his lips there is as a scorching fire. A false man soweth contention; and a talebearer separateth very friends.
Proverbs 19:28 A witness of Belial scorneth judgment, and the mouth of the wicked swalloweth down iniquity.
And in plain contrast to being in Christ, the Word of God, Belial/Beliar is said to be “of unbelievers”:
2Corinthians 6:14-18 Be not diversely yoked with unbelievers; for what participation is there between righteousness and lawlessness? or what fellowship of light with darkness? and what consent of Christ with Beliar, or what part for a believer along with an unbeliever? and what agreement of God’s temple with idols? for *ye* are the living God’s temple; according as God has said, I will dwell among them, and walk among them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be to me a people. Wherefore come out from the midst of them, and be separated, saith the Lord, and touch not what is unclean, and *I* will receive you; and I will be to you for a Father, and ye shall be to me for sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
1Chronicles 17:9 Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning,
Act s13:8-12 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
God speaks of a complete separation from sin and the inability to sin once born again as a new creature in Jesus Christ, excepting the works of the flesh because we live in a corrupt body that is contaminated by sin. The entrance of the Word of God brings new creation and God as Word that replaces the mind of sin we had in the old creature. The instant that sin is replaced by the Word of God, God Says we cannot sin.
1 John 3:9,10 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
The Word of God, speaking to sons of wickedness in the Pharisees, plainly telling them what the spirit in them would do and what would happen to them as a result:
Matthew23:34-36 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Again, God speaking directly of Belial and that those found to have a spirit of Belial among God’s people should be exterminated:
Deuteronomy 13:13 -15 Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
God demonstrating that Children of Belial arrive, an act of speech follows immediately followed by an evil act of the flesh. Belial was not the ‘other gods’ or one of those other gods but the speech which induced men to follow false gods and the speech/spirits of those false gods. Belial is the name of the speech of sin/anti-Christ)
Judges 19:22 Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him.
( ‘know him’ was short for “have homosexual relations with him” )
Plainly, Children of Belial are known by the speech. Their speech made them known for their acts and when justice is applied by God, He knows specifically who to ask for:
Judges 20:13 Now therefore deliver us the men, the children of Belial, which are in Gibeah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Israel. But the children of Benjamin would not hearken to the voice of their brethren the children of Israel:
(For the children of Benjamin had already hearkened, given their ears to the speech of sin through the sons of Belial. Sin had killed them…)
The children of Belial were well known for their peculiar speech.
1 Samuel 1:13-17 Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.
God ordained a king over Israel and immediately the Children of Belial hate that king.
1Samuel 10:27 But the children of Belial said, How shall this man save us? And they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he held his peace.
Children of Belial arrive, act of speech follows, ollowed by immediate disobedience to God by refusing God’s anointed.
1 Samuel 25:17 Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.
(child of Belial unable to hear the Word of God…)
1Samuel 30:22 Then answered all the wicked men and men of Belial, of those that went with David, and said, Because they went not with us, we will not give them ought of the spoil that we have recovered, save to every man his wife and his children, that they may lead them away, and depart.
2 Samuel 20:1 And there happened to be there a man of Belial, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he blew a trumpet, and said, We have no part in David, neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel.
2 Samuel 22:5 -7 For the waves of death encompassed me, Torrents of Belial made me afraid. The bands of Sheol surrounded me; The cords of death encountered me; In my distress I called upon Jehovah, And I cried to my God; And he heard my voice out of his temple, And my cry came into his ears.
(David speaks a different speech than those very ‘torrents of Belial’ (the words of sin that are death) when he speaks to God–God speaks His Word through David back to Himself for David…therefore David is truly saved…)
2 Samuel 23:6,7 But the sons of Belial are all of them as thorns thrust away, Because they cannot be taken with hands; And the man that will touch them provideth himself with iron and the staff of a spear; And they shall be utterly burned with fire in their place.
‘Their place’ is plainly seen to be the lake of fire:
Revelation 21:8 But to the fearful and unbelieving, and sinners , and those who make themselves abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
Definition of a man of Belial and as plainly spoken to be without salvation:
Proverbs 6:12-15 A man of Belial, a wicked person, is he that goeth about with a perverse mouth; he winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; deceits are in his heart; he deviseth mischief at all times, he soweth disCorinthiansds. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly: in a moment shall he be broken, and without remedy.
Proverbs 16:27 A man of Belial diggeth up evil, and on his lips there is as a scorching fire.
God proclaiming the end of Belial, which will have been fulfilled at the end of days on the return of the Word of God in His flesh:
Nahum 1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
Nahum 1:14,15 And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee, that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile. Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.
Nahum 2:13 Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.
Nahum 3:4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
Nahum 3:19 There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
The witchcraft and the sorceries are the words, without which witchcraft cannot be done: those spirits are not any part of the Word of God; they are deceivers.
Satan as the deceiver of the righteous/sons of God with his speech. Satan appears, act of speech–evil:
1 Chronicles 21:1-2 And Satan stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel.And David said to Joab and to the princes of the people, Go, number Israel from Beer-sheba even to Dan; and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.
Satan the accuser of the righteous/sons of God with his speech. Satan arrives, accuses, attempts to place his own speech in Job’s mouth:
Job 1:8-11 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
The speech of sin seeks to be spoken through the mouth of Job in order to blame him later for having spoken wrongly as if Job had freedom of speech and had freely ‘chosen’ to speak evil. But God sustains Job so that even as sin speaks through his wife, the words of sin have no entrance to him and are not spoken through him:
Job 1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
Job 2:9,10 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
Satan as the tempter with his speech not yet incarnate through his servants and through himself seeking to place words of sin and deeds of sin in the righteous:
Nehemiah 6:5 -15 Then sent Sanballat his servant unto me in like manner the fifth time with an open letter in his hand; Wherein was written, It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words. And thou hast also appointed prophets to preach of thee at Jerusalem, saying, There is a king in Judah: and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together. Then I sent unto him, saying, There are no such things done as thou sayest, but thou feignest them out of thine own heart. For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands. Afterward I came unto the house of Shemaiah the son of Delaiah the son of Mehetabeel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple: for they will come to slay thee; yea, in the night will they come to slay thee. And I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who is there, that, being as I am, would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in. And, lo, I perceived that God had not sent him; but that he pronounced this prophecy against me: for Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him. Therefore was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me. My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear. So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.
Matthew 4:3-11 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
Note: The temptation was for Nehemiah and then the Word of God, Jesus Christ to give a place in themselves and ear to the word of sin as if it were truth in Nehemiah and in the Christ and as if the speech of sin was reality in order to accept the powerless ‘exegesis’ of Satan concerning God’s Word–for God to equate any other speech with His own (this is the only time in the whole of the Holy Scriptures the two speaks speak directly to each other face to face on this earth as if in actual intelligent conversation). But in truth they are aliens and have no common understanding at all. The Father speaks through the Son in the power of the Holy Spirit Words which create what He says–but which the speech of sin cannot hear as creation but only as more of its own speech. That is, every time God speaks it seems to the speech of sin as if it is itself validated and empowered. There is no speaking to each other in truth of the two speaks. The speech of sin was created, the Word of God was not. There is no translation between them as one creates and the other does not and cannot. Neither can hear the other and those whom God loves hear God. All others hear the speech of the world: Belial/speech of sin / non-creating speech.
1John 4:5,6 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
John 8:42-47 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
The Word of God gives them no excuse: they cannot hear Him. There is then no other alternative but that they are of Satan and hear only anti-Christ as their native speech.
In no way does God as Word say “You are good people with bad theology.”
He says they are sons of the devil in that they cannot hear the Word of God.
God’s Speech is a creating act by His Spirit that He alone Speaks. The speech of sin can create nothing. It has power only to manipulate what is already created: the heart, mind and soul of fallen men to which God gave it. Because it can create nothing in truth, it speaks as if it were the only speech possible to be spoken and as if there were in truth only one speech in reality in absolute denial of the existence of the Word of God. God says of those through whom the speech of sin is spoken who speak a false gospel deny their only Lord and Savior:
Jude 1:8-11 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
God as Creating Speech/ Jesus Christ is separating the darkness from the light, the speech of sin and all its children from His children; the witnesses that He is God from those who cannot know anything but His wrath:
John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Genesis 1:3,4 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Matthew 13:37-43 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Sin speaks through Satan trying to gain access to the godhead by an act of speech…Therefore to tempt God in prayer is to ask for purely fleshly and worldly lust to be satisfied…that asking is the sin seeking power from God to be fulfilled as it cannot fulfill anything itself.
Lucifer, the anti-Christ ( anti-Word of God )/Belial and the beast are a false trinity that will be destroyed at the end of days.
Revelation 12:9-11 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Follow on: Sin is the pre-incarnate non-creating speech that will be falsely Incarnate as the Word of God:
- Sin/Belial is now called anti-Christ in the New Testament. Just as Jehovah isn’t called “Lord” in Genesis chapter 1 because until after creation there was nothing to be Lord over, the Word of God isn’t isn’t called Christ until after His Incarnation in human flesh and you can’t have a prophet and priest to the elect without flesh, and so there can’t be an ‘anti-Christ’ until there is a Christ. Now God plainly says that to know there is a Christ and the difference between Christ as Incarnate Word of God and anti-Christ as anti- Word-of-God is necessary to understand the test to discover a spirit of anti-Christ as an act of speech in Christ. Note that the word anti-Christ has its first appearance after the incarnation, life, crucifixion and resurrection of the true Christ, Jesus Christ, even though it is called Belial, Beliar, the devil, Satan, sin, false prophet and beast both in the old and new testaments:
1 John 4:1-6 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but prove the spirits, if they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby ye know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses Jesus Christ come in flesh is of God; and every spirit which does not confess Jesus Christ come in flesh is not of God: and this is that [power] of the antichrist, [of] which ye have heard that it comes, and now it is already in the world. Ye are of God, children, and have overcome them, because greater is he that [is] in you than he that [is] in the world. They are of the world; for this reason they speak [as] of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God; he that knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. from this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Daniel 7:3-14 And four great beasts came up from the sea, different one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till its wings were plucked; and it was lifted up from the earth, and made to stand upon two feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold, another beast, a second, like unto a bear, and it raised up itself on one side; and three ribs in its mouth between its teeth; and they said thus unto it: Arise, devour much flesh. After this I saw, and behold, another, like a leopard, and it had four wings of a bird upon its back; and the beast had four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and exceeding strong; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the rest with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another, a little horn, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots; and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. I beheld till thrones were set, and the Ancient of days did sit: his raiment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was flames of fire, [and] its wheels burning fire. A stream of fire issued and came forth from before him; thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld therefore, because of the voice of the great words that the horn spoke; I beheld till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed, and it was given up to be burned with fire. As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away; but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. I saw in the night visions, and behold, there came with the clouds of heaven [one] like a son of man, and he came up even to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.
Zep 3:8-9 Therefore wait ye for me, saith Jehovah, until the day that I rise up to the prey; for my determination is to assemble the nations, that I may gather the kingdoms together, to pour upon them mine indignation, — all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Jehovah, to serve him with one consent.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and the false prophet that [was] with him, who wrought the signs before him by which he deceived them that received the mark of the beast, and those that worship his image. Alive were both cast into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone;
Rev 20:9-10 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city: and fire came down [from God] out of the heaven and devoured them. And the devil who deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where [are] both the beast and the false prophet; and they shall be tormented day and night for the ages of ages.
Isaiah 14:5-20 Jehovah hath broken the staff of the wicked, the sceptre of the rulers. He that smote the peoples in wrath with a relentless stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted unsparingly. The whole earth is at rest, is quiet: they break forth into singing. Even the cypresses rejoice at thee, the cedars of Lebanon, [saying,] Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us. Sheol from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming, stirring up the dead for thee, all the he-goats of the earth; making to rise from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All of them shall answer and say unto thee, Art thou also become powerless as we; art thou become like unto us! — Thy pomp is brought down to Sheol, the noise of thy lyres: the maggot is spread under thee, and worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! Thou art cut down to the ground, that didst prostrate the nations! And thou that didst say in thy heart, I will ascend into the heavens, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit upon the mount of assembly, in the recesses of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High: none the less art thou brought down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee; they shall consider thee, [saying,] Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that shook kingdoms; [that] made the world as a wilderness, and overthrew the cities thereof; [that] dismissed not his prisoners homewards? — All the kings of the nations, all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house; but thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, covered with the slain — those thrust through with the sword, that go down to the stones of the pit: like a carcase trodden under foot. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial; for thou hast destroyed thy land, hast slain thy people. Of the seed of evildoers no mention shall be made for ever.
Psalm 115:17 The dead praise not Jah, neither any that go down into silence;
That sin is not merely an act or a state or mere lawlessness..it is a living creature that produces lawlessness:
1 John 3:4 Every one that practises sin practises also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.
God speaks as spirit and as life to declare that to practice sin is practice lawlessness and that sin is lawlessness. This in no way makes sin a mere act or non-sentient state out of which lawlessness is done. For sin existed before the law was given. If sin were mere lawlessness then no sin would have been seen before the law. But this is not the case:
Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, will not [thy countenance] look up [with confidence]? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and unto thee [shall be] his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
Sin is said to have entered the world. ‘Acts’ do not enter anything spiritual but are physical. In the lie of free will, nothing has entered the world, men just “freely choose” to sin because that’s just the way they naturally are –no Fall, no demonic, no Lucifer, no anti-Christ …just men who love to ‘sin-as-act’ for some strange reason. In addition, ONE mere lawless act is said by free willers posing as Christians to have brought death ..on a permanent basis. God makes plain a living creature entered the world via the woman and then Adam, but the definition of sin-as-act pretends one ‘act’ brought perpetual death and destruction, which makes God plan and justice look idiotic.
Romans 5:12-14 For this [cause], even as by one man sin ENTERED into the world, and by sin death; and thus death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (for until law sin was in [the] world; but sin is not put to account when there is no law; but death reigned from Adam until Moses, even upon those who had not sinned in the likeness of Adam’s transgression, who is [the] figure of him to come.
note that sin was in the world before law: sin was judged to be in Cain before God said “thou shalt not murder”, before there was law. “for until law sin was in the world..”)
Free willers would also have death as an abstract. Yet God Says death is a living spirit that will be thrown into the lake of fire. Death asa living creature, it was brought by sin, another living creature and both have stayed. Abstracts and ‘acts’ do not get cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
While sin is indeed lawlessness and actions done by sin are said to be sin and sin-ful and those through whom they are done are rightfully called by God sin-ners, just as good works are said to be righteous and only of Christ and those through whom they are done are truthfully called by God righteous and saints, sin is not a mere act or state in the same manner that righteousness is not a mere act or state and in the same manner than truth is not a mere concept but is alive and is Jesus Christ. The Word of God declares sin to be alive and all works of sin to be sin as well as being one with their father the devil, the man of sin. As well, all righteous works are done of God and are said to be righteous. Yet God does not say that works are dead things in which we walk but only that we walk in them, He having formerly made them in order that we, as real, literal new creations in Jesus Christ walk in them. In a manner that mimics the truth of Christ that is Christ, sin lies and all who are spoken and done through by sin are dead to God.
There has long been a device by sin that attempts to establish similarities and parallelisms between sin and Christ, the speech of sin with the Word of God. In truth, that is, in Christ who is the way, the truth and the life, all lies of sin are not true and not of Christ. The two are alien to each other and have no similarities at all.
Death is not the opposite of life though in the speech of sin, sin so says. For death knows nothing of life as darkness knows nothing of light.
To –say– that death and life, Christ and the anti-Christ (the speech of sin falsely incarnate) are opposites is to –say– that sin truly has knowledge of the truth of Christ in order that it stand against Him. But sin has no such knowledge or such power as is directly declared as spirit and as life by God:
John 1:1-5 In [the] beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things received being through him, and without him not one [thing] received being which has received being. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light appears in darkness, and the darkness apprehended it not.
1 Corinthians 2:7-10 But we speak God’s wisdom in [a] mystery, that hidden [wisdom] which God had predetermined before the ages for our glory: which none of the princes of this age knew, (for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;) but according as it is written, Things which eye has not seen, and ear not heard, and which have not come into man’s heart, which God has prepared for them that love him, but God has revealed to us by [his] Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
Therefore the greek logic and a lot newtonian physics which is itself nothing more than a false theory of opposites within the speech of sin is seen to be a device of sin whereby it lies that all things are to be understood by merely opposing ‘concepts’ as if nothing exists which cannot be intelligently set against a manufactured opposition.
But sin or newtonian physics within it in truth knows nothing of the knowledge of the holy or true wisdom as is specifically declared by God in the foregoing revelation. Therefore it can truly oppose nothing and truly gain no new intelligence by such efforts. What is falsely called knowledge within sin is then deception and lies because it can create nothing, not even within the mind of the one so deceived, new, real truth as knowledge. To then be deceived that a sinner can pretend that God and Luicfer speak the same language and only in that theoretical one language can it possibly make sense that sin is a mere act is anti-Christ. Then to claim that anyone can “speak the gospel” ( by which sinners intend “a will-neutral holy information a sinner is offered by God in a non-interfereing way..”) is to claim that Lucifer speaks evil in the same speech God as Word speaks truth. That one device has gone on unopposed for centuries ..so much so that it is taken as a foundational understanding of Arminianism that they proudly display at every opportunity as anti-Christ does it through them.
Thus it is no surprise that those who are saying sin is a mere act and that God and Lucifer both speak the same speech and that Jesus Christ as Word of God IS that supposed single speech in which lies and truth are supposedly able to be spoken are well able to find child killing themes in their bibles for abortion and permission for homosexuals and every deviant wickedness to be a priest and pastor over them.
To those who hear God Says:
John 8:10-11 And Jesus, lifting himself up and seeing no one but the woman, said to her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Has no one condemned thee? And she said, No one, sir. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
To those haughty lying dogs that are the modern children of Belial God Says:
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The speech of sin is sin. That is, sin is a speech, a living creature, a spirit that lives in the flesh, a word created by God that is not the Word of God. It is a creature. Many have been deceived by this very speech of sin in order to be spoken through by it to lie that sin is the mere title of an act and have further been deceived that sin is a non-living ‘concept’ which man ‘does’ in self-will as if men had free will.
There is only oneness with God in Christ as new creation or oneness with sin in death. The speech of sin is the perfect lie as it can add to itself perpetually if not for God. It will simply keep on making up terms as spirits that will have effects in the flesh of those who have been given to them. It will only keep on with look-alike- and sound-a-like terms that have the appearance to those not born again in Jesus Christ of being truth as ‘church theology’. There is no flaw in it within itself and it is perfectly self-validating within itself. Only this one thing it cannot do: create. It is not God.
Psalm 140:8-11 Grant not, O Jehovah, the desire of the wicked; further not his device: they would exalt themselves. Selah. [As for] the head of those that encompass me, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Let burning coals fall on them; let them be cast into the fire; into deep waters, that they rise not up again. Let not the man of [evil] tongue be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the man of violence to [his] ruin.
2 Corinthian 6:14-18 Be not diversely yoked with unbelievers; for what participation [is there] between righteousness and lawlessness? or what fellowship of light with darkness?and what consent of Christ with Beliar, or what part for a believer along with an unbeliever? and what agreement of God’s temple with idols? for ye are [the] living God’s temple; a as God has said, I will dwell among them, and walk among [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be to me a people. Wherefore come out from the midst of them, and be separated, saith [the] Lord, and touch not [what is] unclean, and I will receive you; and I will be to you for a Father, and ye shall be to me for sons and daughters, saith [the] Lord Almighty.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
