I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. Blessings to you, Roger. It would have greatly helped me when I was saved as a 10-year-old child and was confused by a lot of doctrines. If you comparing yourself to others to see how they don’t measure up to the standard of righteousness that you are keeping then you have taken your eyes off the prize and you are back sliding into legalism and a Self Indulgent Nature (SIN)!. All saints will enter the kingdom through faith alone (Jn. Conclusion. John makes this clear that even a “born again” person in Jesus Christ will continue to sin no matter how hard he tries to avoid it.Â That is because the believer continues to have a sin nature that fights against his new Spirit nature of Christ while he walks the earthÂ “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us – 1 John 1:8.”Â Don’t be naive or ignorant about your sin and don’t wallow in your sin but stop your sin, confess your sin and try not to do it again.Â “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).”Â The important thing to remember is that you do not ride a roller coaster of uncertainty about your salvation, wondering if there is some sin in your life that is going to derail your entrance into Heaven. Iit help me understand the difference in ways I never thought about it in the past. – RogersingsÂ Â email me at:Â Â firstname.lastname@example.org, I'm a born again child of God loving and serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Â Thank You for granting me forgiveness and a new birth into spiritual life, united with You for eternity.Â I receive the Holy Spirit that seals me, comforts me and guides me into all Truth.Â I pray this in Your Name, Jesus. Lately, I am hearing more and more about entering the Kingdom vs. inheriting the Kingdom. Â Well, when you become a child of God, you become born into God’s family and your blood connection is through the blood of Jesus Christ. Â I know there are times when a family member receives “nada” when their parents die … because of something the family member did or didn’t do that was in opposition to the parent. When you sin, after you are saved, the Holy Spirit within you will convict you of your sin and this should cause you to confess your sin and repent of your sin (1 John 1:9).Â If however, you profess to be a Christian but you are not concerned about sin in the world or convicted by the sin in your life, then I would be very concerned about my relationship with Jesus Christ.Â The scripture is clear that once you are saved you have crossed over from “death to life” (John 5:24) but if you claim to be saved and you are not concerned about sin in your life or you approve of sin in the life of others then you are most likely NOT a saved.Â For although a believer in Jesus Christ will still commit sin, a true believer of Jesus Christ will be prompted by the Holy Spirit to confess their sin and return to fellowship with God.Â. Your questions are coming from the teaching of “Lordship” Salvation, that says that a person has to test to see if they are saved by looking to see if the works of their life are a good reflection of Jesus. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. David committed premeditated murder but he didn’t lose his eternal security. This led me down some paths I would rather not have taken where I committed some sins I deeply regret and for which I have suffered the consequences of my actions. Matthew 7:21. Many readers assume that these phrases are â¦ Pleasing God ethics, and grace Sermon On The Mount Guidance, Need â¦ God hates sin and we are to confront sin but it means that we don’t condemn or judge the motive for why a “believer” severs or doesn’tÂ serve God.Â Each believer will have to answer to God for their walk with Christ.Â Also, I amÂ being realistic to acknowledge the ongoing battle of sin in the life of the believer and I am writing this article to give the weary believer hope, that he will not loose his salvation if he sins because God has guaranteed to complete the good work of changing a believer into the person God created that person to be.Â Also, God is always knocking on the door of his born again child’s heart when that person sins, longing to forgive His child and come in and dine in sweet fellowship.Â And I am giving encouragement to the believer who faithfully overcomes sin and cooperates with God’s sanctificationÂ process, that he will be rewarded by Jesus in the Kingdom of Heaven. Because of that, I tended to focus on what felt good and pleased self. Salvation in Jesus Christ is not to be seen as a license to sin and still be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, like you are holding a “get out of jail free card”.Â If you are not concerned with living a life of repentance toward sin and righteous toward Jesus Christ, then you most likely are NOT saved.Â True salvation in Jesus Christ results in the indwellingÂ of the Holy Spirit which causes the believer to have an attitude of reverenceÂ towards GodÂ who created you and an attitude of gratitude towards Jesus who paid the price to redeem your from sin, so you can have an eternal relationship with God.Â Salvation actually “begins” a battle within the believer between the new born again nature of GodÂ and the old and pervasive sin nature of man.Â This battles is called the “sanctification process of becoming like Christ” and it continues until you are in the presence of Jesus, free from your sin nature and fully redeemed to the new nature of Christ!Â. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Paulâs warning that people who maintain this kind of lifestyle wonât inherit the Kingdom was to say that by doing so they identify themselves as unbelievers, because itâs only by the power of the Holy Spirit that we can avoid such a life, and even then the sinful nature can overpower us from time to time. Itâs being said that all Christians will enter the Kingdom, but not all Christians will inherit the Kingdom. Thanks for taking the time to explain it all. Hence, there is a time limit to the kingdom. Then, right after the story of the children (in both Lukeâs account and Markâs) is the story of a man with great wealth and power who missed the way of the kingdom. Praise God, Jesus is a promise keeper (Phil 1:6) because left up to me I mess up everything … in fact that is the very reason I asked Jesus to save me … to overcome my biggest enemy … me! â 1 John 3:3â5. Entering through the gate of salvation takes us into the kingdom of Godâ¦but inheriting it and partaking in the kingdom of God is not the same. Note, choosing Salvation in Christ is not like choosing what socks to wear or choosing fish instead of chicken to eat or choosing to add sugar to your coffee.Â You are not choosing to “add” Jesus to your life but you are choosing to have Jesus become Lord of your life.Â “, Our “choosing” to be Saved by Jesus works in-conjunction with God’s “choosing” to “, Â Each person is responsible to acknowledge (1)Â, Having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious. This is the Great Commandment “Love one another”. Not by our works or from fear of sin I warn you, as I warned you before, that d those who do 2 such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Â Unfaithfulness on a Christian’s part causes our godly character to decline and (1) thus we come under the discipline of God as believers (not his judgment), (2) it causes the Kingdom of Heaven on earth to decline and thus the Church comes under the discipline of God (this is happening now) and (3) we loose rewards we would have otherwise gained in the Kingdom of Heaven but we do NOT loose our entrance into the Kingdom and our son-ship inheritance, which is guaranteed by our salvation in Jesus Christ.Â. keep up the good work. We are all guilty of sin before God. Jesus loves everyone, including the Scribes and Pharisees that He rebuked. Â. Repentance from sin (a turning away from self and sin) and Faith in Jesus Christ (a turning toward God) are two sides of the same coin … the gift of repentance and the gift of faithÂ supplied by the gift of God’s Amazing GraceÂ … “all” … work together to bring the gift of Salvation (Ephesian 2:8-9).Â Salvation is an unmerited “gift” of God’s Grace.Â Salvation is not offered to you based on any good work you have done and it is not denied to you based on any bad work you have done.Â There is no work involved to receive Salvation and there is no work involved to keep your Salvation.Â Salvation means you are “at rest” in what Jesus has done to justify you before God and it means you daily “rest” in Jesus, abiding in Him, doing the good works He has prepared for you to do (Hebrews 4:10-11). The born again believer will be in Heaven but he will not “inherit” rewards in the Kingdom of God … this is what Galatians 5:21 teaches, that you will enter Heaven but you will not inherit rewards. For although conversion is not the ground of pardon, yet we know that â¦ I have never considered that there is any difference between “see” and “enter” in these two verses. Entering vs Inheriting – What that means in His Kingdom. The difference between âenterâ vs âinheritâ the Kingdom is perhaps the most helpful teaching I have learned in my Christian walk. Loss of rewards really doesn't work with "will not inherit / enter the Kingdom." Â, The above scripture is written to born-again believers as a warning to not “carry out” or act upon the desires of the flesh.Â, (1) The first way to understand this scripture is that if you are a believer of Jesus Christ and you, (2) The other way to understand this scripture is that Paul is warning people in the church of Galatia (and all believers everywhere) that if they practice deeds of the flesh and have no remorse or conviction of their sin, then they should examine themselves to see if they have been born again and have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them.Â The Holy Spirit of God will bring. Adultery seems to be more specific a term than fornication. Â Â Â Â This does not mean that we are to condone sin, especially in the life of the believer. ).Â, The only way to “enter” the Kingdom is to be saved by grace through faith in believe of Jesus Christ … you must be “born again”.Â Salvation is a “one time act” of trusting in Jesus, that His work on the cross (by the shedding of His blood) Christ has paid your sin and by His perfect obedience, you are righteous before God.Â Once you believe in Jesus and enter the Kingdom you can’t leave the Kingdom since it is impossible to un-believe what you once believed and it is equally impossible to un-receive the gift of salvation, the Holy Spirit, that seals your heart for all eternity. He went on to explain to His disciples that "it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven" ... (1 Corinthians 15:50 1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. – Galatians 6:8. Here are some of the “sonship” gifts of a believer in three stages … color coded:Â Â (Salvation – Sanctification – Glorification), (1) guaranteed entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven (John 5:24) – “opportunity” to earn Kingdom rewards (1 Corinthians 3:14) if good works of faith are doneÂ – the “potential” to enjoy Kingdom rewards/service in Heaven to reign and rule with Christ if self is denied and works of faith lead by the Holy Spirit are done (2 Corinthians 5:10), (2) sealing of the Holy Spirit (EphesiansÂ 1:13-14) – filling of the Holy Spirit when faithful toward God – fullness of the Holy Spirit in Heaven, (3) Christ’s righteousness before God (Romans 8:1,Â Isaiah 61:10)Â – ongoing forgiveness of sin when confessed (1 John 1:9) – a white robe of righteousness in Heaven (Revelation 3:5, Revelation 19:14), (4) Spiritual death sentenced cancelled (ColossiansÂ 2:14) – grace to preserveÂ until death or until the rapture – a resurrected body in Heaven.
