Repentance From Dead Works
But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Yeshua comes to CALL sinners TO repentance.
When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
And still from the gospels, from our Master
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.
We are called to be a witness to Repentance And Remission of Sins. A lot of “ministry” neglects repentance and has no place for repentance or redefines repentance. Fortunately, scripture helps us separate wheat from chaff.
Hebrews 6:1-3 KJV lists Repentance From Dead Works, as a [principal] Doctrine of Messiah. There is such a thing as a [dead work] and a [living work]. This relates also to the argument, discussion, debate Christians sometimes have among themselves about Grace or Works re Salvation. Most of these discussions neglect that there are TWO types of Works. Works of the Law. And Works of Faith. Faith without [works of faith] is Dead. The Works of the Law which Saul had in abundance is dead also. Paul received Grace which led to godly repentance. Works of Faith in Messiah. Any purported discussion on Salvation by Grace or Works that does not even acknowledge both types of works, perhaps, could be improved upon.
If I am repenting from a dead sick sinful work, unto a living righteousness in Messiah [ work out of Faith ] from Grace, for by Grace are ye Saved…. That is a good work.
Note 2: Almost always overlooked.
GOD IS LOVE. All of scripture tells us what that Love is. That LOVE beyond our understanding encompasses the Great Flood, where a judgment was made from ON HIGH, and who knows how many men, women and children and children in the womb perished in the Flood. Who do you know among the pastors you listen to – who preach of the Love of God out of these scriptures. The so called “god” of men, the “idols” of men, whether religious or evolutionary or self-willed hypocrites, or sinful men and women — these “gods” will all perish at the Day of The Lord. GOD IS LOVE means HE ascribes what is morally right for one sexually. And that is it. Period. When we are instructed NOT to Covet. That is, it. Period. Most of humanity goes by the mantra of every man or woman doing what is right in her or his own sight. We have a Master. Whether we bow today or not, one day, every knee will Bow.
Global warming, droughts, storms etc. [quite often] from the small portions of scripture I read are [encouraged] by [adultery] [fornication] and being a [potty mouth]. Ie. The LAND is holier than we are, and vomits us out sometimes for our sins, whether our personal sin, or the dna of sin which we are born with. You really want to stop global warming, get all those you know to stop taking the Lord’s name in vain, and do not allow people around you to be a [potty mouth], or to commit adultery, fornication. Got your back sis 😊
If Love and Works are not defined by [GOD IS LOVE] — we are just drowning in our own vomit. To those who want Grace Grace Grace — I also want Grace Grace Grace – but am slowly learning, slowly having the wax dug out of my ears —- My Master – Yeshua – Messiah – SAID, and the RED WORDS should ALWAYS be noted, HE SAID
repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem
Repentance from Dead Works, an often-overlooked DOCTRINE of Christ [heb 6:1-3 kjv] in our society of people worshipping at the alters of transgender homosexuality, self-righteousness, every person doing what is “right” in “their own eyes”, petty gossip, self-love et. al.
Like any of us [can hide] from the Almighty – 😊 You can try, most of us do in various ways, but where is one going to go?
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
Weather Man or weather woman / weather note
Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD. Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. Therefore, the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labor of the hands.
Contemplate: a drought upon the labor of the hands.
Business leaders and statesmen would do well to contemplate. A drought upon the labor of the hands.
