WHAT'S CHANGED?

2 Samuel 12:9 (KJV) 9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

Every pastor teaches from his writings. Every “christian” refers to him; sometimes only as an excuse of their own actions. What has changed? Is not still, the worst thing you could do to a friend is sleep with their girlfriend or wife? What about plotting to kill their friend because they slept with their girlfriend or wife?

All through the Bible we have errors made by God’s people: Abraham got drunk and slept with his daughters, David slept with his best friends wife then plotted and killed him, Paul killed Christians. We see these errors, we also see the repentance and their upright walk. Therefore, we forgive them of what they done.

Today, we may have a friend, a family member, a big evangelist, who does something, a sin against our Adonai. Yes, it’s personal sometimes. Sometimes this thing was done directly to us. Sometimes we just take it personal because we lifted them up; raised them higher than who they are... man.

Who, reading this, has not sinned? Who has not done wrong to a friend or family member? What has changed? If we can forgive the likes of David, Abraham, and Paul, and understand that, in their repentance, they were forgiven of their sin, why can we not forgive those around us?

The false doctrine in false salvation has people believing they are saved IN their sin. But Christ came to save us FROM our sin. Because of this teaching of “substitution”, which is not Biblical, most “christians” look at themselves as righteous, because they acquired Christ’s righteousness; yet build and walk in self-righteousness, just as the pharisees. They forget all the points, of the Bible, that says we are to CHANGE and WALK IN righteousness. Because of this “substitution” and their “acquired” righteousness, they act as if they are above others. They say their dirty but see themselves as if they are clean and when others sin; they set judgment against them and kick them to the curb.

Do we forget what Yeshua said: Matthew 6:15 (KJV) “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” This means a lack of forgiveness on OUR part results in a lack of salvation; because only by the forgiveness of the sin we do, by Adonai, are we saved. That means any righteousness that we THINK was “imputed” to us is no longer... it shows our unrighteousness.

When one works to WALK IN righteousness, because of Christ, we then see our own faults; and it’s harder for us to judge and easier for us to forgive.

Romans 8:1,3-4 (KJV) 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, but after the Spirit... God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: THAT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS of the law MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, who walk NOT AFTER THE FLESH, but after the Spirit.
