can a person stop sinning

Recommended Posts

Dear Bible-Gazer, if I might be so bold please forgive me if I'm wrong, but it appears to me that you are living in your head, trying to figure it out in your mind, your human understanding, and not allowing the Holy Spirit to work it into your heart. I'm not wanting to sound harsh here, for I can see you're desperately wanting an answer to this quandary to your thinking. The answers have already been shared with you, what you need to do is just to take it to the Lord and ask for clarity, don't be angry. The reality is that we won't be taking Any thoughts of this life with us, "For we shall all be changed, in the twinkling of an eye, mortality will take on Immortality." Behold, old things have passed away, behold, All things have become new. Rest easy in the knowledge that God has got it ALL worked out, don't keep fighting, give it all to Jesus, and in the Power of The Holy Spirit, it will become peace unto you. As always, I hope this helps, God bless.

Listen ... I believe there's a great misconception going on.

First, there is a repentance unto salvation ... whereby one turns toward God for salvation.  Do you remember the day you got saved ... for me, it was a unforgettable day.

Now, if you want to live in a consistent state of revival ... you'll live in a lifestyle of repentance ... not for salvation, but rather to stay in a place of refreshing, joy, and love. 

There is a difference.  :)

 

I sure remember the day I got saved......I turned to God as a lost sinner.Kinda like the Publican, I cried out, “ God have mercy on me, a sinner.”No promises from me to quit sinning, no vow to turn over a new leaf, no repenting of sin in the sense that I was going to make a list of my sins and use  willpower  or anything else to abandon my waywardness and walk the straight and narrow.No promise to keep my repentance record of post- salvation sins up to date to prevent damnation.I offered God nothing.Nothing But my sins. “ Turn to me and I will turn to you” was the promise I believed.I did my part- turn to Him ( repentance) and He did His part- He turned to me ( forgiveness of all sins) All the legalism I had learned from many years of “playing church”, like “ ya gotta repent, quit sinning in order to be saved” did not amount to squat that day.Through the faith of the Shed Blood I gave God my sin and in turn, He gave me the Righteousness of His Son.Only God could or would make an offer like that!I heartily recommend it.NOTHING but the Blood.

If we don't remember what we were delivered from how can we praise him for that ? I do not think he will erase our memories. 

Thank you for your concern bro.

We are only human. We sin everyday. Each and every one of us. We may not even be aware of our sins. We need to ask God to forgive our sins everyday. We will not be perfect until we get to heaven. Then we will not sin.

The thing is, that we know now what we've been delivered from, repented and asked forgiveness for our sin. As a consequence of that reality, we are heaven bound and that is sufficient for us. What has transpired this side of Glory will no longer be an issue, for our treasure is IN Heaven. cheers.

.

GALATIANS.5:19-21 (NKJV) = 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

.

Not if we sin intentional or willful sins everyday that are also not repented-of = will not inherit the kingdom of God. There is a big difference between intentional or willful sins/evil-works or fruits/Law-breaking and unintentional sins.(cf; MATTHEW.7:15-23)

About willful sin.

Written to the believers 

Hebrews 10:26 (KJV)
26  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Hebrews 6:4-6 (KJV)
4  For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
5  And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6  If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

This is dangerous, what if we are not willing to make an effort do that which right .

If our faith brings grace, what if our faith becomes dead ? Is there any  scriptures in the bible that show we can lose grace ?

So it is best to repent and change. 

What if we repent and no intention to change, will God forgive us ?

For those who've not read a discussion on this passage that we discussed a few months ago.

YHWH demands that ALL be perfect as He is perfect (which is impossible), just as the gospel call goes out to all, but ONLY those who are born from above will embrace the gospel, that's why regeneration must precede faith, 1 Corinthians 2;14 teaches us that the natural man considers the gospel to be foolishness, so why would he or she embrace the gospel?

1 Corinthians 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
