One foundation that destroys A TRUE CHRISTIAN LIVING above sin

What is the only one foundation that destroys a true Christian living above sin?

What is the only one foundation that destroys a true Christian believer living righteous and holy?

It is not sin because he/she lives above sin by His grace. It is not sin for the reason that no genuine (true) Christian believer makes a practice of sinning – 1 John 3:9 KJV “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

This is how New Living Translation (NLT) puts it for a better understanding –1 John 3:9 NLT “Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.”

It doesn’t mean that a genuinely born again Christian does not commit sin at all! But once he or she falls into sin, he or she will immediately ask God for forgiveness of sin committed and determined not to repeat the sin, and afterwards continues with his or her Christian life in the path of righteousness and holiness.

A true Christian does not live in a sinful, unrepentant lifestyle. The word of God says that a true Christian will never live a state of continual, unrepentant sin – 1 John 3:6 KJV “Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him”

New International Version (NIV) 1 John 3:6 says “No one who lives in him (Jesus Christ) keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.” If someone claims to be a born again Christian and such a person continues to live in sin, keeps on sinning, he/she is telling lies – he/she is never born again.

The word of God says further that anyone who leaves the faith is demonstrating and showing that he was never truly a genuinely born again Christian: 1 John 2:19 KJV “ They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.”

Being religious is not a real indication or sign of being born gain – living in a sinful, unrepentant lifestyle, making a practice of sinning means such a Christian is never born again at all as he continues sinning without repentance and forsaking it – Proverbs 28:13 KJV “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy”

The genuinely born again Christian bears the fruit of righteousness for God – Romans 7:4 KJV “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him (Jesus Christ) who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.”

Thus, one foundation that destroys a true Christian living above sin is not sin at all!

WHAT IS SIN?

Sin is not only to commit all manners of sexual sin ( fornication, adultery, lust, masturbation, etc,), murder/killing, abortion, telling lies, to bear false witness, corruption, malpractices, etc. But sin is any form of disobedience to the word of God. Sin is any form of unrighteousness – all unrighteousness is sin: 1 John 5:17 KJV “All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.”

As mentioned earlier, a genuine Christian believer may fall into sin but he or she does not make a practice of sinning – he is not living in a sinful, unrepentant lifestyle – he will never live a state of continual, unrepentant sin. If you study with understanding the Bible character of David, the word of God says he is a man after God’s heart – 1 Samuel 13:14 KJV  “But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people ….”  Despite the fact that David is a man after God’s heart, he did commit sins which God rebuked him. But he (David) would immediately asked God for forgiveness of the sin – he would forsake the sin –  and he would never repeat the same sin in his life! David did not make a practice of sinning.

A true son or daughter of God does not make a practice of sinning, so sin is not the foundation that destroys  a true Christian living above sin, living holy for the reason that sin will never have dominion over his/her life: Romans 6:14 KJV “For sin shall not have dominion over you….).”

The word of God says a just man (a true Christian, genuinely born again) will fall seven (7) times but he does not sit down there in his fall, rather he will rise up, forsake what caused him or her to fall and continue his Christian journey in the path of righteousness and holiness by asking God for forgiveness and the special grace never to  repeat the sin , that is, he will not make a practice of sinning: Proverbs 24:16 KJV “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again…”

A genuine Christian believer does not make a practice of sinning. Therefore as long as such a true Christian believer continues to live a life of righteousness and holiness, sin cannot make him/her perish.

Then, the question again: What is the only one foundation that destroys a true Christian living above sin? What is the only one foundation that destroys a true Christian believer living righteous and holy?

The answer is the emptiness and dryness of the word of God in the life of a Christian believer – he/she is empty of the word of God – he/she starves himself/herself of the undiluted, pure word of God – Matthew 12:43-45  KJV “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. …..”

The above quoted scripture says because of the emptiness of the word of God in the life of any genuinely born again Christian, his or her last state will be worse than his/her first state! This is because there is never a vacuum in the spirit realm; something must occupy someone’s heart.

You are genuinely born again, that is, unrighteousness (uncleanness) is gone out of your Christian life – you are empty of , swept clean of filthiness/dirtiness of sinful nature but you refuse to fill yourself with the pure word of God so as to replace the sinful nature, it is just a matter of time, you will perish.

Despite the fact that you are genuinely born again, but you fail to make any effort to replace what God has delivered you from with the word of God, then it is just going to be a matter of time, you will surely perish – you will perish without the undiluted word of God inside of you!

Emptiness or dryness of the word of God is a common experience in the churches today! More attendance in the magic service than the Bible study!! Do you give your life to church or Jesus?

By giving your life to Jesus Christ is giving your life to the word of God. Jesus Christ is the word of God – John 1:1, 14  KJV, 1 John 5:7 KJV and Revelation 19:13 KJV “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth….For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one….And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.”

Critical question: What can you do to get rid of the emptiness or dryness of the word of God in your life? The answer is to build your Christian life on the foundation of the true messages of the word of God.

If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Bible mentioned ‘”the righteous” NOT unrighteous. The righteous means the true Christian who are genuinely born – Psalms 11:3 KJV “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

If the foundation of your Christian life is built on emptiness or dryness of the word of God, you have successfully built on the sand – and your Christian life will fall and collapse when the storms of life come calling or during the trials of faith: Matthew 7:26-27 KJV “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” The words “floods” and “winds” are the storms of life or trials of faith.

If your Christian life is built on the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God, the scripture says in the book of Luke that you have built on absolutely nothing – your Christian life is without a foundation and the result of this is that the ruin shall be great! –  Luke 6:49 KJV ‘But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”

Pulse, check and critically examine your Christian life whether it is strongly built on the foundation of the solid rock of the pure word of God or not. Do you build on the foundation of the solid rock of the pure word of God that no pastor or General Overseer can brainwash, manipulate you? Building on the solid rock of the word of God is following and obeying the dictates of the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let your Christian life be built on the foundation of the solid rock of Jesus Christ – Luke 6:47-48 KJV “Whosoever cometh to me (Jesus Christ), and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”

The rock is Jesus Christ Himself – 1 Corinthians 10:4 KJV “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” Build your Christian life on the foundation of the solid rock of Jesus Christ – on the foundation of the pure word of God.

Going back to Psalms 11:3 and look at the question mark of this scripture. With this question mark, it means that the Bible is asking a question – If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

Answer: the answer is provided in Proverbs 18:10 KJV “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” This scripture mentioned the word “the righteous” NOT “the unrighteous”. The righteous means the true Christian believer who is genuinely born again.” You are to run to the pure word of God, and you shall be safe on the foundation of the solid rock of the word of God.

Build your Christian life on messages not on miracles. When you build your Christian life on the foundation of miracles, signs and wonders, you will perish. Ask Moses and the children of Israel who were 20 years and above: Numbers 14:28-29  “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me.”

Messages will help you to know the ways of God – and not His acts – Exodus 33:13 KJV and Psalms 103:7 KJV “Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee…. He (God) made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.” Knowing the ways of God is to develop a personal walk and intimate relationship with God through His word (the undiluted word of God) while the acts of God are His miracles, signs and wonders – the foundation of miracles, signs and wonders destroys many.

Messages will help you to grow and develop your personal walk and intimate relationship with God. That is, miracles, signs and wonders can destroy you but messages will give you life.

God is more interested in your spiritual life than the physical life because God is a Spirit.

God sent the Lord Jesus Christ to die for the world in order to restore the broken relationship that took place in the Garden of man (Adam) and God –  not because of miracles, signs and wonders.

Church is not built on the foundation of miracles, signs and wonders but on Christ Jesus the rock (the pure word of God).

The foundation of the rock of the word of God gives the understanding that spirituality is not stupidity. When you build your Christian life on the rock of the word of God, you ask questions and use your brain in the church.

Those who built their Christian life on the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God built on nothing – they give their lives to the denominational church instead of Jesus Christ!

Those who built their Christian life on the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God are many – in fact, multitude attendance in magic service but scanty attendance in the Bible Study!

Those who built their Christian life on the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God follow Business Generals instead of God’s Generals.

Among those who built their Christian life on the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God are found some academicians or highly educated who don’t know about the spirituality in Christ Jesus, so the business Generals manipulated them – they can’t renew their minds with the word of God, so they give them spirit of fear; they instill in them spirit of fear. They know their General Overseers more than knowing God for themselves. They are bewitched by these business Generals – Galatians 3:1KJV “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”

They (business Generals) sell and commercialize Jesus Name for money. They are easily brainwashed because they are not like Berean Christians who built their Christian life on the foundation of the rock of the word of God..

Upon the foundation of the rock of the word of God, give your life to Christ, don’t give your life to church because church can make a mistake – church is not the author and finisher of your faith but the Lord Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith – Hebrews 12:2 KJV “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”

Spirituality is not religiosity because religion has put many in the bondage and mental slavery as a result of building their Christian life on one foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God. They can’t reason! Even they don’t ask critical questions!!

The solid foundation (of the rock of the word of God) produces critical thinking Christians. It is scriptural to have thinking Christians – to have Christians that think critically for a moment.

One foundation that destroys a true Christian living above sin is not sin at all! But the foundation of emptiness or dryness of the word of God in a genuine Christian believer’s life destroys.
