Because of our sin and our failure to keep constant Faith in God, law is necessary, and not just law, BUT GODLY WISDOM, IS NECESSARY in this broken world, TO AVOID INTOLERABLE CHAOS. A world that just continues to sin and sin and sin and always will sin, needs law and requires us to pray for Godly wisdom to overcome and survive, until our Savior Christ reigns on Earth; it is then that sin will be obliterated, and perfect Faith in God will be renewed in our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
Matt 19:26 -With God all things are possible, yes this is true… but if there is sin in the midst of stating this, our sin must first be removed:this is accomplished by captivating our thoughts in Christ, knowing that God’s will, not our own, must be done. Or in other words: we must learn how God thinks and identify that concept or thought as Truth( Godly thoughts are: noble, righteous, lovely, pure, and upbuilding. (&1st Cor. 13:4-8), ) We must gain Godly wisdom to overcome all false thoughts and feelings, and never speak them nor act on them. How do we gain Godly wisdom…
Proverbs 9:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Sin hardens hearts, and with each sin the heart gets colder and harder and less loving, hence why the love of many has grown cold today. Getting rid of God in every place, Who is Holy and IS LOVE . And substituting God with sin ( which hardens hearts,) is a recipe for disaster of every kind imaginable: sickness, pestilence,(coronavirus), locusts( famine in Africa right now,) nation rising against nation, the love of money ( which basically entails that we are trying to hold on to this false strength that likewise is perishing, out of our own foolish desperation.)
READ. Romans 5 below…
Enduring through any suffering that came about as a consequence of a sin, (either our own, or from the sin of this evil world,) and making the SELFLESS desicion to not fix our broken situation with the easy and obvious answer, another type of sin, AND TO NOT BLAME anyone or anything during these very hard times, but to instead say it doesn’t matter what so and so has done, “Jesus already paid for it..” Is the beginning of getting to know God better, and gaining wisdom and patience, self-control, love, joy, to OVERCOME..
Romans 5 New King James Version (NKJV)
Faith Triumphs in Trouble
5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, [a]we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces [b]perseverance; 4 and perseverance, [c]character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Christ in Our Place
6 For when we were still without strength, [d]in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
Death in Adam, Life in Christ
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the [e]offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many [f]offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the one man’s [g]offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore, as through [h]one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one[i] Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?—1 Corinthians 3:3
AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE DO NOT PREACH THE GOSPEL with the primary purport of trying TO SAVE PEOPLE FROM GOING TO HELL, WE PREACH THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL BECAUSE WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AND WANT to BRING OTHERS THE HOPE THAT COMES IN THE LIGHT OF KNOWING GOD. WE as God’s children, ARE NOT SUPERHEROS THAT CAN SAVE PEOPLE, we are but a Team of servants who are willing to let God use our mouths to preach, our hands to help, our feet to move on his part, with wisdom and holy thoughts that he inspires into our minds, when we learn to hear Him correctly, and not the interceding lies of the devil; THAT IS EXACTLY WHY CHRIST DIED, SO we must STOP TRYING TO CHANGE EACH OTHER, CHRIST DIED FOR ALL OUR SINS: those REPENTED OF and those STILL BEING SANCTIFIED/ WORKED OUT WITH GOD CURRENTLY. WE WILL NOT BE PERFECT WHEN CHRIST RETURNS…WE WILL COME BEFORE THE JUDGE, ALL HAVING COMMITTED CRIME. BUT GOD WILL LOOK INTO OUR HEARTS( SOMETHING NO HUMAN CAN SEE, NOR JUDGE,) TO DECIDE WHO INHERITS HIS KINGDOM. SO let us LIVE LOVINGLY, HUMBLY, AT PEACE, Pray and obey God’s word, be servants, tell others the good news of the gospel in the way God asks to, listening to our conscience He has given us when to speak, and when to exercise self-control, (faith without works is dead,) knowing there are kind and loving, encouraging words, that God once brought to you through a servant that obeyed him and fought fear and shared the love of God ( 1st Cor. 13:4-8, 1St John 4;8, John 3:16,) and those WORDS, BROUGHT LIFE! THE HARDEST PART OF THE FIGHT, though, HAS ALREADY BEEN WON, (John 3:16) GOD IS GOOD.
