Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 1 John 3:4-6
The issue of sin still plagues the church today. Some have said that until the consummation, no child of God can walk in absolute mastery over the influence of sin. I beg to differ.
Sin is real. Yes it is; and even more real is the power who is and which is the solution to sin. Jesus came and died and rose and ascended that we may be free from sin…that we may be the Victors over its influence. Therefore any existence on this plane of life today that in its idealistic expressions deny the child of God absolute mastery over the influence of sin….will by corollary be putting a finite limit to the infinite power unleashed through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let us not put seals where none was placed…let us not draw limits where Divinity placed none. Selah
I totally believe the plain testimony of the truth. I believe Sin and Darkness are defeated foes in the sight of the new creation. I believe that perfection in terms of mastery over the influence of sin is attainable in this life now…I say every child of God must learn today to walk in complete and absolute mastery over sin…today! On this earth! Now! We do not have to wait until the Second Advent! Grace has supplied all it takes…we have the resources to walk in perfection with respect to sin today!
Glory to God!
