Message from Paul, David and Solomon 'Our Sin Within'

 Our Sin Within -


Posted by Jeff on April 22, 2013 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Romans 7:14-24

"This is what we know: the law comes from the spiritual realm. My problem is that I am of the fallen human realm, owned by sin, which tries to keep me in its service.

God gives Israel the law as part of His covenant promises. The law does a great deal for His people; mainly it sets them apart from all other nations of the world and gives them a blueprint for God’s will. But, according to Paul, the law cannot fix everything that is wrong with this broken world. Although the law is perfectly suited for bringing sin to the surface and exposing it, the law cannot free people from the power of sin and its evil twin, death.

Listen, I can’t explain my actions. Here’s why: I am not able to do the things I want; and at the same time, I do the things I despise. If I am doing the things I have already decided not to do, I am agreeing with the law regarding what is good. But now I am no longer the one acting—I’ve lost control—sin has taken up residence in me and is wreaking havoc. I know that in me, that is, in my fallen human nature, there is nothing good. I can will myself to do something good, but that does not help me carry it out. I can determine that I am going to do good, but I don’t do it; instead, I end up living out the evil that I decided not to do. If I end up doing the exact thing I pledged not to do, I am no longer doing it because sin has taken up residence in me.

Here’s an important principle I’ve discovered: regardless of my desire to do the right thing, it is clear that evil is never far away. For deep down I am in happy agreement with God’s law; but the rest of me does not concur. I see a very different principle at work in my bodily members, and it is at war with my mind; I have become a prisoner in this war to the rule of sin in my body. I am absolutely miserable! Is there anyone who can free me from this body where sin and death reign so supremely?

Our lips can speak of God's purpose in our life or a so called 'bridge' when various believers have been brought together, yet when God's will occurs in our life for reasons we cannot understand. . .

Eternal One: My intentions are not always yours,
        and I do not go about things as you do.
    My thoughts and My ways are above and beyond you,
        just as heaven is far from your reach here on earth. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Most all believers simply run their own direction according to their own thoughts that know not God the Father nor His will. . .

"Who can see into a man’s heart and know his thoughts? Only the spirit that dwells within the man. In the same way, the thoughts of God are known only by His Spirit.(1 Corinthians 2:11)

When any human let's the devil within take total control, all they any longer know is themselves through pride while not seeing themselves as Paul saw himself, therefore become judges and murders running from God. . . But those few that can see themselves as sometimes worthless despicable while only praying more and more to God for direction and His mercy just as David did in these following words after his most horrible sin with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah. . .

Psalm 51

For the worship leader. A song of David after Nathan the prophet accused him of infidelity with Bathsheba.

One of the most difficult episodes in King David’s life was his affair with Bathsheba and all that resulted from it. Psalm 51 reflects the emotions he felt after Nathan confronted him with stealing Bathsheba and murdering her husband, Uriah (2 Samuel 11–12).

At one time or another, all people experience the painful consequences of sin. Psalm 51 has been a comfort and a help to millions who have prayed these words as their own. It invites all who are broken to come before God and lean upon His compassion. It teaches that we need not only to be forgiven for the wrong we have done, but we also need to be cleansed of its effects on us. Ultimately, it helps us recognize that if we are to be healed, it is the work of God to create in us a heart that is clean and a spirit that is strong.

"Look on me with a heart of mercy, O God,
    according to Your generous love.
According to Your great compassion,
    wipe out every consequence of my shameful crimes.
Thoroughly wash me, inside and out, of all my crooked deeds.
    Cleanse me from my sins.

For I am fully aware of all I have done wrong,
    and my guilt is there, staring me in the face.
It was against You, only You, that I sinned,
    for I have done what You say is wrong, right before Your eyes.
So when You speak, You are in the right.
    When You judge, Your judgments are pure and true.[a]
For I was guilty from the day I was born,
    a sinner from the time my mother became pregnant with me.

But still, You long to enthrone truth throughout my being;
    in unseen places deep within me, You show me wisdom.
Cleanse me of my wickedness with hyssop, and I will be clean.
    If You wash me, I will be whiter than snow.
Help me hear joy and happiness as my accompaniment,
    so my bones, which You have broken, will dance in delight instead.
Cover Your face so You will not see my sins,
    and erase my guilt from the record.

Create in me a clean heart, O God;
    restore within me a sense of being brand new.
Do not throw me far away from Your presence,
    and do not remove Your Holy Spirit from me.
Give back to me the deep delight of being saved by You;
    let Your willing Spirit sustain me.

If You do, I promise to teach rebels Your ways
    and help sinners find their way back to You.
Free me from the guilt of murder, of shedding a man’s blood,
    O God who saves me.
    Now my tongue, which was used to destroy, will be used to sing with deep delight of how right and just You are.

O Lord, pry open my lips
    that this mouth will sing joyfully of Your greatness.
I would surrender my dearest possessions or destroy all that I prize to prove my regret,
    but You don’t take pleasure in sacrifices or burnt offerings.
What sacrifice I can offer You is my broken spirit
    because a broken spirit, O God,
    a heart that honestly regrets the past,
You won’t detest.

Be good to Zion; grant her Your favor.
    Make Jerusalem’s walls steady and strong.
Then there will be sacrifices made,
    burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings,
With right motives that will delight You.
    And costly young bulls will be offered up to Your altar, only the best.

God calls many, but few are chosen because they only know themselves while ignoring anything in the words all believers are to live by; therefore destruction with panic is coming upon a world of unprepared believers.

"You simple, naive people, how long will you love your feeble ways?
    You simpletons, how long will you enjoy making fun of what you don’t understand?
        You fools, how long will you hate learning what truly matters?
    Turn to me and receive my gentle correction;
    Watch and I will pour out my spirit on you;
        I will share with you my wise words in order to redirect your lives.
    You hear, but you have refused to answer my call.
        My hands reached out, but no one noticed.
    All my advice, all my correction, all have been neglected—
        you wanted nothing of them.
    So I will be the laughter you hear when misfortune comes, and it will come.
        I will be the mocking sound when panic grips you—
    When panic comes like a stormy blast,
        when misfortune sweeps in like a whirlwind,
        when sorrow and anguish weigh you down.

This is when they will call on me, but I will not respond;
    they will be frantic to find me, but they won’t be able.
Because they despised knowledge of my ways,
    and they also refused to respect and honor the Eternal,
Because they rejected my advice
    and turned down my correction,
They will surely get what’s coming to them:
    they’ll be forced to eat the fruit of their wicked ways;
    they’ll gorge themselves on the consequences of their choices.
You see, it’s turning away from me that brings death to the simple,
    and it’s self-satisfaction that destroys the fools. (Proverbs 1:22-32)

Now concerning you I have done my job while reminding you that you can never hide anything from God; therefore God sees hate, judgement, selfishness and the pride He hates going before destruction.  (Proverbs 16:18)

"So let us move forward to enter this rest, so that none of us fall into the kind of faithless disobedience that prevented them from entering. The word of God, you see, is alive and moving; sharper than a double-edged sword; piercing the divide between soul and spirit, joints and marrow; able to judge the thoughts and will of the heart.  (Hebrews 4:11-12)

Revelation 6 and Where Humanity Now Stands According to God

Where all humanity now stands in regard to Revelation 6 & Matthew 24


“Then I saw the Lamb break the first of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures call out with a thundering voice.

First Living Creature: Come!

Then I looked, and what a sight! There was a white horse carrying a rider with a bow. He wore a wreath and came riding like a conqueror, intent on complete victory.

The Lamb broke the second seal, and the second living creature called out.

Second Living Creature: Come!

Then another horse, fiery red, sped forth. Its rider was granted the power to steal peace from the earth and received a large sword so that people would slaughter each other.

The Lamb broke the third seal, and the third living creature called out.

Third Living Creature: Come!

Then I looked; and behold, there was a black horse! Its rider held in his hand a balance scale. And I heard a voice emanating from the middle of the four living creatures.

A Voice: A quart of wheat for a whole day’s wage, three quarts of barley for a whole day’s wage, but do not harm the olive oil and the wine!

And when the Lamb broke the fourth seal, the fourth living creature called out.

Fourth Living Creature: Come!

I looked; and behold, there was a pale green horse! Its rider’s name was Death, and Hades accompanied him. Together they were granted authority over one-fourth of the earth to kill with weapons, with famine, with disease, and with wild animals that roamed the earth. (Revelation 6:1-8)


For any to understand where they will be during the times of these four horsemen which is the beginning of sorrows in Matthew 24:4-8 KJV requires the “fear of the Lord” written in Proverbs 9:10 that can only be given to those who follow God’s own instruction for all believers as clearly directed in Proverbs 2:4-6 being the only way to gain understanding of God for all who seek only truth through faith according to the words all believers must live by . . . but according to God none , no, not one does.

If all believers in Christ and God the Father being One in Spirit would just believe these following words of God, there would be no world deception because believers would be living according to God rather than self-lost in unseen darkness with a false light of deception as their only guide.

“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Psalm 12:6; Psalm 18:30; Psalm 119:140; Proverbs 30:5)-(King James Version)

Now read once again the words above from Revelation 6 with these words below because they clearly express the beginning of sorrows with great suffering or affliction coming upon us all.

“Take care that you are not deceived. For many will come in My name claiming they are the Anointed One, and many poor souls will be taken in. You will hear of wars, and you will hear rumors of wars, but you should not panic. It is inevitable, this violent breaking apart of the sinful world, but remember, the wars are not the end. The end is still unfolding. Nations will do battle with nations, and kingdoms will fight neighboring kingdoms, and there will be famines and earthquakes. But these are not the end. These are the birth pangs, the beginning. The end is still unfolding. (Matthew 24:4-8)

Let’s now allow The Word for explanation of what is coming upon all humanity being (Christ) whom is supposed to become the only director on earth for all believers . . . but is in no way whatsoever to any according to God’s own words believers refuse to believe.  (Luke 6:46, Revelation 12:9, Psalms 14:2-3)-plus many added words from the 31, 250 verses all through the entire Bible believers do not know, understand or believe.

Are you ready for your own written destiny? There are 73 verses on affliction with many telling you of your own future just ahead for believers and all humanity with Lamentations chapter 3 and its 66 verses being a perfect untaught truth containing  the written future of all stiff-necked, prideful and disobedient believers worldwide.

“As for the righteous—when they are afflicted— God delivers them through the affliction itself, and uses the trial to open their ears to His voice. (Job 36:15)

“Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; (Hebrews 11:25)

“Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. (James 5:10)

What you have just read is for the few striving to live by the words of our Lord through obedience required (Hebrews 5:9) in changing salvation into eternal; therefore. . .

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.(Psalms 33:18-21)


As for this entire world of believers living against God’s words of truth with direction they have no knowledge of. . .

“In order that people will praise my name,
    I am holding my anger in check;
    I am keeping it back and will not destroy you.
I have tested you in the fire of suffering,
    as silver is refined in a furnace.
But I have found that you are worthless.
What I do is done for my own sake—
    I will not let my name be dishonored
    or let anyone else share the glory
    that should be mine and mine alone. (Isaiah 48:9-11)

 “Some people are like the seeds that fall along the path; as soon as they hear the message, Satan comes and takes it away. Other people are like the seeds that fall on rocky ground. As soon as they hear the message, they receive it gladly. But it does not sink deep into them, and they don't last long. So when trouble or persecution comes because of the message, they give up at once. Other people are like the seeds sown among the thorn bushes. These are the ones who hear the message, but the worries about this life, the love for riches, and all other kinds of desires crowd in and choke the message, and they don't bear fruit. (Mark 4:15-19)

“Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; (Psalms 107:10)

The pure words of our Lord you have just read are but a fraction of truth written in the Holy Bible this world of believers does not believe because just as God tells them all, (which they also refuse to believe) they have been deceived by the god of this world being the father of lies and prince and power of the air who sends false messages into all human minds worldwide; therefore these following words are exactly where God places them all being of the many worldwide. . .

“For the wide gate has a broad road which leads to disaster and there are many people going that way. (Matthew 7:13b)

1 Corinthians 2:14, Hebrews 5:13 and Matthew 7:13 are many.

“The narrow gate and the hard road lead out into life and only a few are finding it.” (Matthew 7:14)

1 Corinthians 2:13, Hebrews 5:14 and Matthew 7:14 are few.

Following are the few with the first verse showing what true believers are now preparing for; and can be well learned from a man who has become a messenger through my past six years of education directly from God as a workman for God completely disassociated from this entire world filled with different religions and beliefs with no other life other than the constant battles between flesh and spirit just as Paul had to deal with in Romans 7:14-24; and that means I am a sinner just as we all are sinners.

Look closely and in depth concerning what’s coming upon all humanity. . .

“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. (Mark 13:19)

“For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel. (2 Kings 14:26)

Most all on this earth really have no idea whatsoever who they actually are according to the words of God; but now the time has come for all to begin learning truth; and not from this entire world of shepherds who feed not their congregations any truth concerning God and their own written destiny as written in Ezekiel 34:1-10. 

If you were to believe every word of God while knowing great affliction is coming upon you, would you know what to do being the only way to endure suffering with great hardships while securing yourself a position within God’s government or just becoming saved from the fires of great tribulation followed by God’s wrath against a totally disobedient human race claiming glory to God through nothing but empty lip love?

What we have only briefly covered in the first eight verses of Revelation chapter six is what’s about to break loose in this world today with all religions concerning Christ and God being the most foolish of all the inhabitants on this planet because they can’t even believe the words of who their lips claim to love with proof in all God’s words through the Bible they all are to live by , but completely ignore; therefore rather than becoming overcomers of the god of this world, they, just as all on earth have been overcome and on the wrong road bringing only great darkness with suffering that goes so far beyond words it cannot be explained.

Let’s now move on to what comes next.

The breaking of the seals releases the four riders and a series of disasters and plagues. Even though what follows appears to be extreme violence unleashed against the earth and its inhabitants, there is a limitation to what follows. Death and Hades have the authority to kill, but their authority extends only to one-fourth of the earth. The slaughtered souls cry out for vengeance, but they will have to wait a little longer until more martyrs are killed for their testimony.

“When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the heavenly altar the souls of those murdered for holding fast to the word of God and their testimony. They cried out in a great, singular voice.

Murder Victims: How much longer, O Lord, the holy One, the true One, until You pronounce judgment on the inhabitants of the earth? Until You avenge our blood?

Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest for a little while longer—soon their number would be complete. In a little while, more of their fellow servants, brothers, and sisters would be murdered as they had been.

At this point the multitude of disobedient believers who had no mercy from God, yet repented to die a martyrs death because they realized just how wrong and rebellious they have always been through pagan holidays along with the doctrines of man that only make God’s truth to become worthless in their lives, they all just wanted to know how much longer until they were resurrected in Revelation 6:11; and our Lord gives them the answer they seek in Isaiah 6:11;

“Until cities are in ruins, the houses sit empty,
        and the land has become a wasteland. 


“When the Lamb broke the sixth seal, a great earthquake shook the earth and the sun grew dark and became black (like mourning sackcloth) and the full moon became red like blood. The stars of heaven fell to earth as a fig tree drops its fruit during a winter storm. The sky snapped back as a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain was shaken off its foundation, and every island melted into the sea. The rulers of the earth, the important and the great, the generals, the wealthy and the powerful, the slave and the free person, all hid themselves in the caves and among the mountains’ rocks. They pleaded with loud suicidal requests to the rocks and mountains.

People of the Earth: Fall on us. Hide us from the fierce presence of the One who sits on the throne, from the wrath of the Lamb. The great day of their wrath has come. Who can withstand it?

There is but only two roads in life to walk during these end times for all humanity, and the freedom of choice is yours.

“He who takes refuge in the shelter of the Most High
    will be safe in the shadow of the Almighty.
He will say to the Eternal, “My shelter, my mighty fortress,
    my God, I place all my trust in You.”
For He will rescue you from the snares set by your enemies who entrap you
    and from deadly plagues.
Like a bird protecting its young, God will cover you with His feathers,
    will protect you under His great wings;
    His faithfulness will form a shield around you, a rock-solid wall to protect you.

Psalm 91 is a beautiful psalm of trust in God. But how does God take care of all His people, all at the same time? Well, keep reading because Psalm 91 is one of just a few places in Scripture that describe what we might call “guardian angels” (Exodus 23:20; Psalm 43:3). Though rare, these passages teach that God is not alone in maintaining and protecting His creation and His people. He has made a host of heavenly messengers ready to do His bidding, and His bidding is often to guard His people throughout their lives and protect them—sometimes from dangers they are not even aware of.

“You will not dread the terrors that haunt the night
    or enemy arrows that fly in the day
Or the plagues that lurk in darkness
    or the disasters that wreak havoc at noon.

A thousand may fall on your left,
    ten thousand may die on your right,
    but these horrors won’t come near you.
Only your eyes will witness
    the punishment that awaits the evil,
    but you will not suffer because of it.

For you made the Eternal [your] refuge,
    the Most High your only home.
No evil will come to you;
    plagues will be turned away at your door.

He will command His heavenly messengers to guard you,
    to keep you safe in every way.
They will hold you up in their hands
    so that you will not crash, or fall, or even graze your foot on a stone.
You will walk on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the lion and the serpent underfoot.

Because he clings to Me in love,
    I will rescue him from harm;
    I will set him above danger.
Because he has known Me by name,
He will call on Me, and I will answer.
    I’ll be with him through hard times;
    I’ll rescue him and grant him honor.
I’ll reward him with many good years on this earth
    and let him witness My salvation.”

Just who are God’s people? You have just been told by God’s own words babes on watered down milk still in diapers can never understand until they die as a martyr or in God’s wrath; but because God is love He is now making known His truth to give all believers a chance to repent while He can still be found; yet even with His own words of warning, the many of this world will remain in their prideful darkness until God can no longer be found. . .

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.  (Proverbs 1:7, 22-32)

Only God can give you the Meaning of the Fear of the Lord. . . .

and why none in a deceived world have it according to God because none, no, not one trust in His every word that we are to live by; yet all believers will say they trust in God’s every word while living in a state of complete disobedience which God only sees as their rejection towards Him. Therefore God is going to reject all believers during the beginning of sorrows followed by the great tribulation; and those are His words and not mine as you will learn if you desire truth.
