 God's Amnesty Program IN Christ Jesus.

Every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed [within his own mind].
Then when lust is conceived [in the mind], it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished,
it brings forth death.
(James 1 verse 14 thru 15.)

Once again, we can hear Paul's lamenting cry: "O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death?".  Paul has experienced God's redemption in Christ, but afterwards he also experiences a confusing conundrum, as he attempts to clarify it in his letter to the Romans.  Paul writes from his past experiences:  For I was alive once without the Law to condemn me, but when the Commandment of God came, sin revived and I died.  The redeemed Paul, lived in his flesh, but his flesh betrayed him and he knowing Scripture, found himself to be dead in his sin that is innate to the flesh.  Sin was exposed by God's holy, just and good Law in Commandments, for the unseen stealthy sin had already slayed the redeemed man of faith. Now Paul, having been reproved by Yahweh God's Holy Spirit, recognizes that in his flesh of self centered humanity, that only death is written in the corruption of his own flesh, and that only IN God's Messiah is found LIFE in the Eternal.  Paul, in his wretchedness, knows that Communion Grace gives Thanksgiving to God through the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind. (See Romans 7 verse 24 thru 25.)

The Eternal Holy God, in His justice, accepted in total satisfaction the Chagigah Offering of the absolute Love of the Man, Christ Jesus, Who came in the flesh of Adam, and as the Last Man of Adam's genetics, He over came this world of sin and death, (See Chagigah Presentation Offering.) Now since, by Man [Adam] came death, by Man [Jesus/Yeshua] came also the resurrection of the dead. For as IN Adam all die, even so IN Christ shall all be made alive. (1st Corinthians 15 verse 21 thru 22.)

Paul, seeing with the eyes of understanding, knows that the full sentence for the rebellion of Man's sin and its punishment of death, has been paid for by the Incarnate Holy Son of God. God's Word was made flesh and the sinless Man Jesus Christ, was sacrificially crucified to death on the cross in full payment for Man's rebellion.  Now, through the surety of Jesus Christ's resurrection from his death on the cross, we hear Paul rejoicing: "Thanks be to (Yahweh) God through Jesus Christ our Lord!  So then, on the one hand, I myself with my mind, I am serving the Law of (Yahweh) God, but on the other [hand], with my flesh (I am subservient to) the Law of Sin (and death)"Therefore there is now no condemnation to those which are IN Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  Now, with God's Holy Spirit, giving birth to a repentant soul, and that soul becoming a new creation of God, then the earthly nature of sin's self rule that is innate to the flesh of man, is being abrogated, and the spirit of the mind is being regenerated into the LIFE of Christ by following the leading of God's Holy Spirit of Grace.  

Yes, it is true that through God's unmerited Grace through His Spirit of Grace IN Christ Jesus, our souls can be born anew by receiving God's Gift of Salvation Life that is born of the Faith of Jesus Christ.  The only Almighty God enables all who come to Him, through their faith in His Son Jesus Christ, to rejoice likewise with Paul. For God Almighty has extended amnesty, to all those who enter into God's freedom, through their repentance from sin, enjoined with their confession of faith in Christ Jesus.  That person who expresses their belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of the righteous Son of Man, Jesus the Christ of God, is completely exonerated from past wrongful deeds, and are now justified in their expressed faith, in the Holy One, Who died for them.  All the past deeds, of the confessing sinner, have past away in Christ Jesus death for our sin, and behold all things are made new to those in Christ's resurrection. (See Romans 3 verse  23 thru 26.) 

The first Adam/Man was created as an innocent son of God, but his freewill mind drew him away into a lust for control of all things, and with its conception in his mind brought him into his treasonous rebellion against his Maker.   With Adam's willful rebellion against Elohim, then God's Spirit of LIFE left Adam to himself,  Adam's treason against the Almighty God submerged all the souls of mankind into the grave of death, for all of mankind have sinned.

But now the Last Adam/Man, Jesus Christ the only Begotten Son of God, having a Perfect Love and Obedience to His Father God Almighty, over came the rebellious sin that brought Adam's death and that of his prodigy.  In Almighty Yahweh God's scale of justice, the rebellion of the first Adam/Man brought death to the souls of mankind, but the Love and Obedience of the Last Adam/Man, brought Life to all that seek God's Pardon.  Now, all who believe in Jesus Messiah's death for our sin and His resurrection into the LIFE of His Father, have been newly born with God's Spirit of LIFE, with a new start into the LIFE of Jesus Christ.  Even the thief on the cross, without an apparent water baptism, was given amnesty and freely justified by Christ with the thief's verbal expression of faith in the Lord: For the thief believed that the crucified Jesus Christ would indeed reign in His Righteous Kingdom of the Living. (See Luke 23 verse 39 thru 43.) 

Almighty Yahweh God is not the author of confusion, but He is the Eternal God of His Word of TRUTH. Wherefore, Yahweh God's Living Spirit of TRUTH and Peace abides in the resurrected Man Christ Jesus (See 1st Corinthians 14 verse 33.)  However, Satan, the author of sin, has entangled finite man into his web of confusion that imprisons the human mind of flesh into our own pretentious mind of idolatrous self importance.  But, if we answer the Call of God and turn away from the lethal direction of sin and death, and toward the leading of God's Holy Spirit, then in our repentance we should remain subjects of the Living Word of God.  For the Lord is not slack concerning His Promise, as some men count slackness; but [He] is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2nd Peter 3 verse 9.) With a person's repentance from sin and a renewing faith in the Righteous LIFE and Resurrection Power of the Son of Man, Christ Jesus, then the Infinite Yahweh God, Who dwells in Eternity, will remit the sins of the past, and justify the person that is given new birth by the Holy Spirit of Yahweh God for He reforms us WITH IN the sinless Body of God Almighty's resurrected Son Christ Jesus. (See Holy Spirit of Truth.)

The first Adam committed high treason, when he broke faith and trust in the Words of his Creator Elohim, and thereby brought the sting of sin and death to his being, and into the bodies, minds and souls of all of his human offspring.  But the second Adam, Jesus the Christ of God, was Elohim's Promised One, Whose Righteous Word through the Spirit of His Father Yahweh God, was conceived into the ovum/seed of a faithful virgin woman of Israel, named Mary, and with His birth, He became the Son of Man, and God with us.  Jesus Christ, the Word of God, came into this world as the True Unleavened Bread of Heaven to become the Son of Man/Adam.  But this Divine Son of God, was birthed with the genetics of the first Man, But Jesus/Yeshua haMashiach with the perfection of His Love and trusting obedience, would do all the Will of His Holy Father Yahweh God, and bring Salvation to all who would believe in the Saving Word of His Father. (See Matthew 26 verse 39.)

What the natural man could not do in his fallen flesh, that is save himself from sin's death, Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty did the impossible, with the resurrection of the sinless Person of the Last Adam, Jesus Christ.  The Lord Jesus, as the Son of Man/Adam, with the Perfection of His Love and Obedience to His Holy Father God Almighty, was God's Passover Lamb that was sacrificed to death on the cross for the sins of Man. This Son of God gave the possibility of a new birth to the souls of the dead of humanity, who would come to express a trusting faith in Holy God's New Covenant of LIFE that is in God's Resurrected and Obedient Son.  God's New Covenant of Living Faith, is established forever in the Sacrificial LIFE giving Blood of Jesus Christ.  The Holy Spirit of God, breathes the LIFE of His beloved Son, into the repentant souls of the now living dead, giving them new birth into the Way of the TRUTH that leads into the LIFE of Faith within the Living Word of Yahweh God, the Almighty. 


We are presenting a slightly different, but nevertheless an intrinsic biblical perspective, that may help to clear up the churches' rhetorical records of division on this subject of God's Gift of Justification and Sanctification of sinners.  Through out the last 2 thousand years,  the theologians of the Word of God, have been grappling with the meaning of the Eternal God's justification of the person who answers God's Call to repent and to separate themselves from sin. 

We have come to a simple premise that God has provided within His Spirit of Grace, an Amnesty Program for all the rebellious; for all of the outlaws; and all of the unfaithful sinners of humanity; so that they may all come to the Creator of LIFE, by accepting God's Word and His Conditions for His abundant pardon.  YHVH's pardon is more specifically His amnesty for past sins, thereby providing for sinners, a new beginning, with a new born Faith in the Righteousness of Almighty God.  God Provides His Grace. in the Body and LIFE Blood of Jesus Christ, our High Priest,  Jesus, alone, provide the entrance into the Kingdom of God's Love, with His Holy Righteousness and Provisions.  This amnesty program, is called the Gospel, or the Good News of God's Salvation and Mercy through Christ Jesus; and like Paul, with our acceptance of God's Grace in
Christ Jesus, we are Called to be God's new ambassadors of His Peace. 

First let us see if the word "Amnesty", as it is taken from the internet Wikipedia, has spiritual significance in God's Salvation Grace:

Amnesty (from the Greek ἀμνηστία, amnestia, meaning oblivion) is a legislative or executive act, by which a state restores those who may have been guilty of an offense against it, to the positions of innocent people.  It includes more than pardon, inasmuch as it obliterates all legal remembrance of the past offense.  The word has the same root as amnesia.  Amnesty is more and more used to express freedom, and the time when prisoners can go free.

From this definitive excerpt, and by looking at the essential hermeneutical logic of the Good News of Scripture, we might agree together that amnesty, is speaking beyond a pardon, and would be more appropriately known as the obliteration of past sins, as if they had never occurred.  This amnesty is exactly what the Lord God Almighty, in His Kingdom of Righteousness, has provided through His benevolence and justice in Christ Jesus.  (See Romans 3 verse 24 thru 26.)

The Hebrew word for "pardon" is "calach" {saw-lakh'} Strong's H5545, and is found some 46 times within the old testament verses written in the English versions of the Bible.  Witness for yourselves of God's call to His mercy with the abundance of His "pardon": Seek the LORD while He may be found: Call upon Him while He is near.  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:  Let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him,  And to our God, for He will abundantly pardon (in Greek calach). (See Isaiah 55 verse 6 thru 8.) In Luke 6 verse 37 N.A.S.B,  we read  “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned.  We see that the English word "pardon" transliterated from the Greek word apoluo {ap-ol-oo'-o} Strong's G0630, means to set free or to set at liberty. "Apoluo" is found at least 69 times in the English versions of the Bible.  The abundance of that pardon, as in abundantly pardon, affirms our hermeneutical position that God is dispensing His Love and Mercy, as a complete "amnesty" to all who will come to Him, with their acceptance of His terms and His Table Provisions for LIFE IN Christ Jesus.

It should be understood that there is an important distinction between pardon and amnesty.   Pardon is forgiveness for past offenses, but the record remains intact: Where as with amnesty, there is the abolishment of the past record with complete forgetfulness of the former offences, as if they did not happen.  In God's amnesty, the old slate is wiped completely clean, and there is a new beginning of LIFE with the Almighty's Word giving directions in His Righteousness.  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  Whom God displayed publicly (See advent Psalm 98 verse 1 thru 3.) as a propitiation in His Blood through Faith. This was to demonstrate His [Yahweh God's] Righteousness, because, in the forbearance of God, He passed over [did not judge] the sins previously committed.  (Romans 3 verse 23 thru 27.)  In Adam, all of man kind have died in the will of sin, but the Almighty God reveals His righteousness toward humanity's sins of the past by His own offering of amnesty, and thereby give a new start in life to all that believe in the victorious resurrection from the dead of God's only begotten Son Jesus Christ.  God was well pleased with Jesus/Yeshua's presentation offering of His Perfect Love and Obedience to His Father Yahweh the Lord God Almighty. (See 1st Corinthians 15 verse 21 thru 22.) For God so Loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, so that whosoever believes IN Him should not perish, but have everlasting LIFE (IN Him). (See John 3 verse 16.)

The Infinitely Holy Lord God of creation, has overlooked the past sins of all those who answer His Call,  for He has offered  to them His conditional Amnesty that demonstrates His Righteousness.  In the beginning, the Infinite God Almighty created free flowing time, and in His foreknowledge of all time, He saw the course of time, and that man from the beginning would become immersed in  the sin and death of the First MAN we know as Adam.  From the beginning of time, Yahweh God ordained that His Word would be His Lamb, and as the last Adam/Man, He and would be crucified to death for the sins of all of Man kind.  (See 1st  Peter 1 verse 19 thru 21, and Revelation 13 verse 8.) God's Word in the Messiah/Christ would come in God's time and fulfill all of God's Covenant Word for the Salvation of Man kind.  The first man Adam was made to be a living soul by the Breath of God's Spirit, but this Adam/Man died because of his treasonous sin against his Maker.  The last Adam was conceived by God's LIFE Giving Spirit, and because of Jesus/Yeshua's Love and Obedience to His Father Yahweh God, the Christ/Messiah of God gives HIS LIFE to the souls of all who would believe and follow Him in Love and Obedience.  Whosoever is born of God's LIFE giving Spirit IN Christ Jesus overcomes the world: And this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our living faith IN Christ.

Even as Abraham was justified by His faith when he both heard and saw the Gospel of Salvation preached to him by the Word of Yahweh God, so are all believers justified by Yahweh God through His Gift of Faith in the Messiah's Sacrificial LIFE Giving Blood.  Our redemption from sin and death is purchase by our Faith in the victorious Resurrection LIFE of Christ Jesus.  Now, as far as YAHWEH GOD is concerned, the past is past and forgotten, and God, through a person's faith in Christ Jesus, gives a new beginning of life to that person of faith, bringing about the new birth of the soul, through God's Promise of His Holy Spirit of LIFE.

Jesus calls to all who will hear: Come unto Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you Rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I AM meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find Rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. (Matthew 11 verse 28 thru 30.) 

All that the Father gives to Me shall come to Me; and him that comes (erchomai) to Me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6 verse 37.) For the Father seeks those who would worship Him in the Spirit of TRUTH of His only Begotten Son.  The hearts and minds of all those that come to the Lord will stay on the Lord, and will remain faithful to God's Provisions of LIFE, in His New Covenant of unmerited Grace in and through His Son, Jesus/Yeshua.

The Wisdom and Grace of God is marvelous, and yet humbling, to all who have experienced Holy God's Love and Mercy towards us sinners.  In absolute reality, we were the defiling ungodly nature that the innocent Son of Man, Jesus Christ was made to be on the cross.  For Jesus Christ the Righteous, was made to be a scapegoat for us sinners.  For He [Jesus] Who knew no sin was made [on the cross, by God,] to be our sin and death that we might be made the Righteousness of God IN Him.  (see 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 21.)

Jesus Christ, born the Son of Adam (Man), suffered in the flesh of His humanity, the full indignation of Holy Yahweh God's judgment towards the defilements of Man kind's sin that brought violence upon Jesus Christ and caused His cruel death on the cross.  But Jesus, in His Perfect Love and Obedience to the Will of God His Father, overcame our sin and death, and in His resurrection, He condemned that damnable nature of sin, in His Flesh as the Son of Man, even by that same Perfect Love and trusting obedience to His Father God. (See Romans 8 verse 2 thru 4.)  Knowing that Christ, being raised from the dead, dies no more; [then] death has no more dominion over Him.  But in that He died, He died unto [the violence of] sin once, but in that He lives, He lives unto (Yahweh) God.  Likewise, reckon yourselves also, to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto (Yahweh) God through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Therefore Let not sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey it in the lusts thereof.  (Romans 6 verse 9 thru 12.) Now by our true confession of faith, in Jesus Christ's crucifixion death for our sin, and because of His resurrection into the LIFE of His Father Yahweh God, we are reckoned by Yahweh God, to have died in Christ Jesus, and in Christ's resurrection from the dead, the believer whose soul was dead to God, is now made alive with God's Spirit of LIFE within our Risen Savior. 

Understandably, The God of all LIFE,  is the God of the living.  Therefore, the true Gospel of LIFE, reveals Yahweh God's amnesty for past sins, bringing the Promise of  new beginning of LIFE, that is simple and free for all to accept. 

God's Amnesty is not unconditional, but provisional

However, God's absolute pardon or amnesty is not unconditional, but on His terms alone, even though His terms are simple.  When hearing of God's gracious offer of amnesty for past offences, then we must turn away from our own corruption of sin and death, and come and receive the liberty which God desires to give to us.  All those who respond in genuine repentance, will make a public confession of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus.  Their confession of faith in God's Christ, releases them from those original shackles of sin and death.  For scripture says: The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the Word of faith, which we preach;  That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved.  For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture says, whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 10 verse 8 thru 11.) Now those given amnesty should finalize their New Covenant of Grace with the signature of water baptism to publicly show that they are in full agreement with God Almighty's Amnesty.

To Yahweh God Almighty, Water Baptism is not a symbolic gesture, but is of His Holy Spirit that is One with the Serum Water and Blood that flowed from the side of of His Son, Jesus Christ.  Through Yahweh God's Holy Spirit of TRUTH, the Serum Water of the Blood that flowed from Yahweh's Fountain of LIFE IN His Son, separates us from our old life, and obliterates all sins of the past and that which was associated with their old Adamic nature.  Death is expunged, in the LIFE Giving Blood of Jesus Christ, thereby giving that person a new right standing with God. 

To understand the significance of Water Baptism through God's Holy Spirit then see The Fountain of Living Water. IN Yahweh God's Amnesty program of Grace, the former past sin's of the one baptized into Serum Water of God's Spirit, will never come before Yahweh God to accuse that person again of their earlier wicked acts of treason.  All those that come fully to the Lord Jesus Christ, with their declaration of repentance and faith, the Almighty God will not refuse to give His clemency.  After fulfilling their beginning Faith agreement with Holy God's New Blood Covenant IN Christ Jesus, then Yahweh God gives the followers of Christ, His Holy Spirit of TRUTH and GRACE.  God's Holy Spirit of Grace then seals their souls with Christ's cleansing Blood, and then the Almighty's Spirit of LIFE will lead and sanctify (set apart) those who will follow in the WAY of the LIFE of Christ that is paved in His Love.  For Jesus says to His disciples: If you love Me, [then] keep My Commandments: And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of TRUTH; Whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not, neither knows Him: But you know Him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless:  I will come to you. (See John 14 verse 15 thru 21.)

Because of Adam's earthly defiled nature, death reigns IN all of humanity: But contrary wise, all those IN Christ who believe IN the Lord Jesus, through their public confession, and return to God, are made alive unto God.  Through our repentance from sin, and our stated faith in Jesus Christ's death, burial and resurrection, we have signified in baptism that we have fully accept God's gracious Provisions of the amnesty that He has extended to us through our faith in His Word. (See Luke 24 verse 44 thru 48 and also Acts 17 verse 30 thru 31.) That you put off concerning the former conversation of the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that you put on the new man, which after [being created in the likeness of] God, is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4 verse 22 thru 24.)  In putting on the new man, it is a new beginning of life, for those who abdicate their old willful ways, and then follow the Way, the Truth and the Life of Jesus Christ.  For it is written; Everyone that confesses the Name of the Lord, must depart from wickedness (that is the iniquity ingrained within the roots of our willful minds). (2nd Timothy 2 verse 19.). With one's ongoing desire of repentance within the spirit of their minds, it is apparent that, as far as God is concerned, all of the past sins, no matter how atrocious, are not only forgiven with one's repentance and confession of faith, but are totally wiped clean through the Blood of Christ's atonement, as if they had never occurred. 

Before we go any further:

There are several disclaimers and several good instructions that needs to be definitely heeded by the new born person.  First, the penal requirements of any earthly governmental, or civil judicial laws that are deemed broken by the old man of the flesh, may be enforced by society according to their law.  From this point on, the newly redeemed person IN Christ, is to take responsibility and be accountable for their own actions against the Grace of God.  Hear what the Prophet Micah speaks to God's people in chapter 6 verse 8; "He has showed thee O man, what is good, and what the LORD does require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God".  Therefore, if the wise in heart, would see eternal Life, the they would adhere to the Lord's call to the daily cross, with its denial of the selfish old idolatrous man, and to put on the new man in Christ Jesus, for they are called into the Law of God's Love. (See Mark 8 verse 34.) For thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:  And these words which I command thee shall be in thy heart.  This is the First Commandment. (Deuteronomy 6 verse 3 thru 7.) And the second is of like manner, namely this: Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. (Deuteronomy 10 verse 18 thru 19.) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (See Matthew 22 verse 36 thru 40.) But then again, Christ Jesus gives to His disciples a new Commandment that expands the heart of the second great Commandment.  A new Commandment I give unto you; That you Love/Agapao one another, as I have Loved you, that you also Love one another.

God's Love/Agapao needs to begin to be manifested within the heart and soul of our being.  Without repentance, or a change in the direction toward the heart of the Almighty God and His Kingdom people, then a person's continuous willful, idolatrous sin will leave them imprisoned and chained to death.  God's gift of amnesty, with its implied justification of a person, is made void through a willful  heart that continues in disobedience, for the Spirit of God is absent from all wickedness.  A person can not interpret God's goodness, so as to justify their own sin, and maintain the continuance of their own wicked desires.  God is not mocked, nor shortsighted, for from Eternity's vantage, the Infinite sees the desires and directions of the individual hearts of all people. (See Galatians 6 verse 7 thru 8.)

The Word of God gives a warning to the wayward: Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: For I will not justify the wicked. (Exodus 23 verse 7.)

If a person loves their sin, and continues in it, then they will remain imprisoned to their sin, and may not see the freedom that God offers through His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ.  That promised new freedom, founded within God's gift of amnesty, establishes a line of demarcation for the sin's of the past life, and begins a fresh new life with one's ongoing repentance from the demands of the old self.   Our word of faith in the Christ of God, given in our baptism, signifies an abrupt end to the ways of the old man, to a change in the direction of the new man, where the Love of God through His Spirit of Grace, little by little begins to overthrow the willful desires in our mind of flesh.  Again we hear Jesus say to those that proclaim a love for Him:  Take up your cross daily and deny your selfish desires and follow Me

God's love and mercy, is in concert with the Scripture's Good News of amnesty, that is extended to all who come to God in repentance, and to follow with faith in God's atoning mercy that He gives in His Son's Life sustaining Blood.   Now then, the free new born person of the Spirit of God, should understand that there is a brand new beginning, for our former offenses have been tossed into God's sea of forgetfulness, as referenced in Micah 7 verse 19.  Let us listen to this Word concerning God's mercy toward us sinners: "He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and Thou will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea".  Because of the sacrificial Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, God willingly has amnesia for our confessed and repented past offences.  Again, we hear comfort from the Living Word of God: For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear [worship] Him.  As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.  Like as a father pities his children, so the LORD pities them that fear [worship] Him.  For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.  (Psalm 103 verse 11 thru 14.)

God knows that our flesh is weak, for it is formed of the dust of the earth, and naturally tends to return to earthly diversions.  But we can trust Yahweh, the Almighty with His mercy, and the Sovereignty of His Word, to uphold His Covenant Provisions for His imputed righteousness for the believer, who seeks to worship Him in His Spirit of Truth.  If we walk in the Light as He is the Light, [then] we have fellowship one with another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son, cleanses us from all condemnation of sin.

The strength of sin is in the Law's condemnation of unrighteousness.  But now, with faith in Christ Jesus, God's New Covenant of Perfect Love supplants the condemnation of sin leading to the second death.  Now, the power of God's Love, is sealed in the born again souls of the earthly, by God's Holy Spirit with the righteous poured out Life Giving Blood of the Son of Man, Jesus the Christ of God.  God's beloved Son, as the Son of Man/Adam, perfectly Loves His Father of Holy Righteousness, and overcame the condemnation of the Just Law's of God by His sinless life.  Jesus Christ's Holy Life was made evident with Christ's Bodily resurrection from the dead.  His Perfect Love and trusting obedience to His Father, obliterated all fear of the wrath of sin that was to come upon Him.  There is no fear in Love/Agapao; but perfect Love casts out all fear; because fear has torment.  He that fears is not made perfect in love. (See 1st John 4 verse 17 thru 19.) When Jesus Christ willingly sacrificed His sinless Life on the cross, then the just God of the living accepted Christ's perfect sacrifice of Love, and demonstrated to the world, not only His Eternal Power, but His Justice with Mercy, by resurrecting the Son of Man, Jesus Christ from the dead.   From the beginning of His universal creation in time, God's purpose was the justification of human sinners, who would agree by faith to live by God's Covenant of Love within the Life of His Resurrected Son. 

God's Covenant of Grace was established at the Passover Table of our Lord when Jesus said to His disciples: Take and drink all of you: For this is My Blood of the New Covenant shed for many for the remission of sin.  God extends His Covenant of Grace in our High Priest, Christ Jesus, through His Body and Blood Provisions ministered by and through His Holy Spirit of Grace.

When we sense in our being that our love of God, and that of our fellow man is faltering within us, then it is because that our own self love has again, been set as first in priority.  But God has provided in His Covenant Word, to those of a repentant heart, a restoration of our soul and spirit through the Body and Blood of Jesus in Holy Communion.  God, knowing the weakness within our flesh, is faithful and just to absolve and cleanse the faithful believer of all of sin's unrighteousness.  After giving amnesty, the Majestic God has given Provisions in His Word that is to maintain an on going fellowship of Love with God and His Son, and with the members of Christ's Body.  For all of those who say they love God, they will have issues and struggles with the flesh, but even so, we need to understand that God, in His Amnesty Program, has set forth all of His Gracious Provisions within His Son's Sacrifice of Perfect Love, and His sanctifying Provisions are forever established within Jesus Christ, as God's Word of TRUTH and Salvation.  Then He (Jesus/Yeshua) took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them (His disciples), saying, “Drink from it, all of you.  For this is My Blood of the New  Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."  This Cup of God's unmitigated Grace is Holy, and is to be received in Holy Faith and Thanksgiving to Almighty God: For the very Life, that is in the Blood of Jesus Christ, is the very Life that is of God's Holy Spirit of Grace, Who raised Christ Jesus from the dead.  The Life of God's Spirit of Holiness, is within God's Covenant Promise IN Christ Jesus that will raise the faithful from the dead, and into God's Kingdom of the Living.
