My website that witnesses to the truth about the Lord Jesus has been going around the world since 1995 and has reached millions of people in over a 100 countries.
I have witnessed for my Lord Jesus since 1977 and my testimony about what He has done in my life goes back to 1948. Even if they dragged me out into the street and killed me. It would still be a witness for Him, the Lord of All and Wonderful Saviour with absolute POWER over evil. The Witnesses would just see a dead body, not my spiritual body that has gone to be judged by my Lord for both the good and the bad that I did in my life.
DEATH TO SIN – Charles Finney July 15, 1840
TEXT.– Romans 6:7: For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Romans 6:6-7 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, [Or be rendered powerless] that we should no longer be slaves to sin – 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
I. Different kinds of death.
1. Natural death. This is the death of the body.
2. Spiritual death. This is death in sin. It is total depravity or a state of entire alienation from God.
3. Eternal death. This consists in the endless curse of God.
4. Death to sin.
II. The kind of death mentioned in the text.
The death here spoken of is manifestly a death to sin. This is very evident from the context. At the close of the preceding chapter, Paul had been speaking of the super-abounding grace of Christ, and commences the sixth chapter by saying, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer therein?” Here Paul is speaking of those who were alive and yet dead to sin,[.] He spoke of their having received a baptism into the death of Christ. By their spiritual baptism they had been solemnly set apart or consecrated to the death of Christ. “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death; that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection; knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now, if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:” He speaks of them as not only dead, but, by their spiritual baptism buried into the death of Christ. And to carry the idea of their being still farther from the life of sin, He speaks of them as being planted into the likeness of his death, and crucified with Him that the body of sin might be destroyed. And then adds in the words of the text, “Now he that is dead is freed from sin.” In the margin it reads “is justified from sin.” The term here rendered justification may be rendered “is made righteous.”
It is plain from this connection, that Paul is speaking of those who had been so baptized by the Holy Spirit so as to be dead to sin, buried, planted, crucified, as it respects sin.
Members of Churchianity, Christianity without Christ just Church, have not been baptized by the Holy Spirit!
The LAW of the New Testament is obedience to Christ as a result of your love for Him
To be chosen for Salvation, you have to be as the Lord Jesus describes in John 14:23!
There is no religion, not even Christian, that can do what the Lord Jesus proclaimed He can do.
Revelation 1:18 ‘I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.’
See how the perfect Lord Jesus affected those religious people he witnessed to

In my testimony you will see how over time the Holy Spirit influenced me by the Gospel of Jesus until I chose to love the Lord Jesus. I also describe those I have observed to be showing signs of rejecting the Gospel. They are unable to produce a testimony of their own walk with God – before and after salvation. Though for some, it might be the case of they are not yet able to form in their mind what is happening to them.
Mike Hill’s Testimony – His Life With God contains many examples from my life
Do not study the Holy Bible without allowing the Holy Spirit of God to help you.
Jesus promises the Holy Spirit
