COME LET US REASON TOGETHER; “THOUGH YOUR SINS!”


come now let us reason

Isaiah 1:18.

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

The book of Isaiah is a book of restoration and reformation. God spoke through prophet Isaiah and gave lots of prophecies in the restoration of the lost glory of His people Israel.

From verse one of this chapter, God was talking about the sin of the nation of Judah. In verse eleven God was asking them: to what purpose is the multitude of their sacrifices? They are vain obligations. In vain they worshiped God. He wasn’t really interested in their burnt offerings, their motives and intentions were totally wrong. God didn’t see it as an act of obedience.

Upon verse twelve He asked them: who has required these things at your hand?

Is not that God was not willing to accept their sacrifices, or He is happy rejecting the offerings of His people. But their iniquity made God unhappy with them.

Isaiah 59:1-2.

“Behold, the Lord ‘s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

 God is closer than we think He actually is to us, it’s our iniquity, our lifestyles, our deeds that are making Him stay far away.

God gave His people a new page, a blank sheet to start all over again. It was a new opportunity, He refused to allow them to wander and waste in their sins. God is not rejecting us, He is calling us back. He wants us to negotiate and find a perfect way according to His standards out of our sins, and to set us free from the destructive power of sin.

God is telling us to forsake our old lives and put away that sin that so easily beset us. And focus only on God, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:1-2.

God is pleading here with us saying, “ Come and let us talk, reason, negotiate together: though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” God wants to have a chat with us, He wants us to think and agree together, He wants to see reasons with us. He doesn’t want us to be entangled in the bondage of sin.

The Call To Repentance

5s35fseytuj88ks2f5327p9tb3zqv8zw

God is saying: if you will want eternal life and power that surpasses human understanding, you must begin a new walk with Christ in complete obedience to His rules and Laws.

We must cease to do evil; we must wash and make ourselves clean and whole again. We must learn too well. This is necessary for having complete repentance and turn around.

It is not just enough if we stop living the old. It is very important that we put on the new man and learn to live a righteous life, holy and acceptable to God.

We must continue doing well, our motives must be right. We must practice righteous living so we can have an expected end. We must learn to do well; we must take pains to get the knowledge of our duty, be inquisitive concerning it, in care about it and accustom ourselves to it. That we may become a master of this holy art of doing well.

We must seek judgment and justice; enquire what is right, that we may apply it to our everyday lives.

Finally family!

God is begging us that we can still come as we are to Him, but we cannot remain as we are. He wants to wash us as white as snow!!!

He is saying, while our hands are stained with sin and our hearts are filled up with the guilt of the past, He is still ready to accept us if only we can be washed in the blood of Jesus.

God is giving only one simple condition, which is: Break off your league with sin and you shall be welcomed into His covenant and you will have fellowship and communion with Him.

Though your sins are as red as scarlet, and crimson, though you are under the guilt of blood, yet upon your repentance, you shall be forgiven and you shall appear in the sight of God as white as snow.

 If you be willing and obedient!!!

 Obedience is important to have a sweet ride with Christ. Others maybe having it their own way, some may say it doesn’t matter, “ God Understands.” It is true! But God will not go against His words for your own selfish interest. He honors His words more than His name. And am happy to tell you that the devil understands as well and there are consequences for everything we are going either good or bad.

 Let us reason together…

There are lots of goodies waiting for us, we only need to obey. If we make ourselves clean by repentance and reformation, God will make us whole by full remission. If we are obedient, the good of the land, the promises of the new covenant will be ours.

 But if we rebel vs 20!! We will have ourselves to blame; the consequences of disobedience will come upon us.

And Now Life and Death, Good and Evil are set before us; come and let us reason together! What have you to object to complying with God’s conditions?

God bless!

THE BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE: Ephesians 2:1-10.


IMG_3280.PNG

Ephesians 2:1-10
1. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5. Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6. And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

In the part One of these series:
We look at our miserable state of sin, when we were dead in our trespasses and how God’s grace and mercy located us.
Verse 1-3 tells us about our old state.

~ Our Unregenerate souls that are dead in trespasses and sins. All those who are in their sins, are dead in sins. Sin is the death of the soul. Wherever that prevails there is privation of spiritual life. Sinners are dead in state, being destitute of the spiritual life and cut off from God. They lack the fountain of life. And the are slave to the law.
~ A state of sin is a state of conformity to this world. Vs 2; says wherein in time past, we did walk according to the prince of the power of the air and the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience.
~ We were fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind.

Verse 4-10: gives account of God’s glorious mercy and salvation of our souls through Grace:

We must realize that salvation is free but not cheap. There are many things we have to drop in order to continue in this free gift that Christ has given us. Our old man and old ways have to be nailed to the cross.
We have grace at our disposal but we should not take the liberty Christ has given us for granted.

Our liberty and freedom from the grip of the devil is not because we are righteous, it is because of Grace. This grace is sufficient for us in every situation we find ourselves.
We ought to walk on this grace and help others trace their way Christ.
It’s is not an avenue to condemn others and put on The- Holier Than Thou Attitude. But we should remember that we were once dead to sin, grace found us, mercy saved us. We ought to pray for our fellow, believing God that they will be save.

Finally: The 10th Verse says:
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are now created in the Imagine of Christ Jesus, Our Life is Hid in Christ and Christ in God. It means we are Untouchable as God’s people.
As we are living a right life, before anything harms us, it must harm Christ Jesus and God first before harming us. Even the devil himself bears witness that’s impossible.
We only need to walk in the principles of holiness and righteousness; according to the will of our Heavenly Father.

God Bless.
