mikehill4jesus “Christians who do evil are not saved from hell!”
10th September 2016 (9.13) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
One of the greatest problems facing a Lost Soul’s chances of being saved are the Devil’s lies spread by those who are controlled by him. Namely unconverted professing Christians who are NOT members of Christ’s Spiritual Body.
GRACE: The impression of many seems to be, that grace will pardon what it cannot prevent; in other words, that if the grace of the Gospel fails to save people from the commission of sin in this life; it will nevertheless pardon them and save them in sin, if it cannot save them from sin. Now, really, I understand the Gospel as teaching that men are saved from sin first, and as a consequence, from hell; and not that they are saved from hell while they are not saved from sin. Christ sanctifies when he saves. And this is the very first element or idea of salvation, saving from sin. “Thou shall call his name Jesus,” said the angel, “for he shall save his people from their sins.” “Having raised up his Son Jesus,” says the apostle, “he hath sent him to bless you in turning every one of you from his iniquities.” Let no one expect to saved from hell, unless the grace of the Gospel saves him first from sin.–Charles Finney
Matthew 1:20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, [Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves.] because he will save his people from their sins.’
Acts 3:26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.’
Why then do we have so many Christians down the Centuries and even today, who seek to excuse their wickedness?
The incarnation of the Word of life
1 John 1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched – this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our [Some manuscripts your] joy complete.
Light and darkness, sin and forgiveness
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all [Or every] sin.
Christian Leaders since 1977 have stubbornly refused to have fellowship with me!
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
Many professing Christians who do wicked things are calling God a Liar, in that he allows us to break Moral Law!
Matthew 5:18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
Here are a list of Commands in the Holy Bible that we are told to obey!
Any Christian who breaks a single command will incur the wrath of God.
Any Christian Leader who breaks a single command is a fraud in claiming to be a Leader for the Lord Jesus Christ.
There are unconverted Christians who do not teach as Paul did. They make the Lord Jesus out to be a liar!
This is what God says!
John 14:24 Anyone who does NOT love me [the Lord Jesus] will NOT obey my teaching.
Here is some very important teaching on this subject of Sinning against God

EXCUSES CONDEMN GOD
Sermon by C.G. Finney.
Reported by The Editor.
“Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?” Job 40:8.
(NIV Job 40:8 ‘Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself?’)
Although in the main, Job had spoken correctly of God, yet in his great anguish and perturbation under his sore trials, he had said some things which were hasty and abusive. For these the Lord rebuked him. This rebuke is contained in our context:
“Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said–Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct Him? He that reproveth God, let him answer it.
Then Job answered the Lord, and said–Behold I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay my hand upon my mouth. Once have I spoken, but I will not answer; yea twice, but I will proceed no further.
Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,–Gird up thy loins now like a man; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?”–Job 40:1-8
It is not, however, my object to discuss the original purpose and connection of these words, but rather to consider their present application to the case of sinners. In pursuing this object, I shall
I. SHOW THAT EVERY EXCUSE FOR SIN CONDEMNS GOD.
II. CONSIDER SOME OF THESE EXCUSES IN DETAIL.
III. SHOW THAT EXCUSE FOR SIN ADDS INSULT TO INJURY.
I. Every excuse for sin condemns God.
(Please note that I am also challenged by what I learn and pass on to you.)
The Lord promised that the number of Saved People would be small and the number of Unsaved People would be large.
The narrow and wide gates.
Matthew 7:13 ‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.’
It is the Devil that causes the unconverted Professing Christians to believe that a person can have one foot on the Broad Road and one foot on the Narrow Road. But then he always tells lies for he can do nothing else as there is no TRUTH in him.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST KNOWS IF YOU ARE WICKED AND HAVE NO EXCUSE
The Gospel of Jesus that many Christian Leaders need to use.
The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit without which we are just playing at Christianity.
