You cannot afford to stumble

The false Grace gospel that is being
preached in churches has led to a situation where Christians believe
that it is acceptable to sin. Many of them say that they are all
sinners. They think that it is acceptable to keep on stumbling, to
keep on going back to the same sin. Jesus made it very clear that it
is not acceptable for any of His followers to stumble.
We read in Matthew 5:27 Jesus said:"You
have heard that it was said, you shall not commit adultery, but I say
to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has
already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye
makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you, for it is
better for you to lose one of the parts of your body than for your
whole body to be thrown into hell. If your right hand makes you
stumble, cut it off, and throw it from you, for it is better for you
to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go
into hell." If you keep on stumbling, you will end up in hell.
Jesus does not call us to stumble He
calls us to repent and stop sinning, and live in holiness or else we
will end up in hell. The writer of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 10:26
"For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge
of the truth there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a
terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which
will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of
Moses, dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
How much severer punishment do you think He will deserve who has
trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the
blood of the Covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted
the Spirit of Grace. For we know Him who said:"Vengeance is
mine, I will repay," and again, the Lord will judge His people.
It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the Living God."
He is talking here about believers. It is not acceptable to go back
to sin. If you go back to son there is no more grace. It is not
acceptable to go back to sin. The wrath of God will come on you and
if you do not repent, you will perish.
Many believe that God will only punish
them, but they will still be saved. That is a lie. If you bear bad
fruit you will get cut off and burned. If you bear no fruit for the
kingdom of God you will get cut off and burned. If you sin, you will
burn. The Apostle John wrote in 1st John chapter 5 verse 18:"We
know that anyone born of God does not keep on sinning." If a
person keeps on sinning he is not a child of God. He was not born
again or if he was born again, like the hog he has gone back to roll
in the mire, like the dog he has gone back to his own vomit.
We read in 1st John chapter 3 verse 4
"Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness, and sin
is lawlessness. You know that He (Jesus), appeared in order to take
away sins and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins.
No one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure
that no one deceives you. The one who practices righteousness is
righteous just as He is righteous. The one who practices sin is of
the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of
God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No
one who is born of God practices sin, because his seed abides in him
and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of
God and the children of the devil are obvious, anyone who does not
practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love
his brother”
There are so many Christian believers
that study the Bible and that quote you Bible verses about the grace
of God, but they don't know Jesus. They are not born again, they do
not abide in Jesus. As the Apostle said:"no one who abides in
Him sins. No one who sins has seen Him or knows Him." If you sin
you are of the devil, you're not a child of God, you're only
deceiving yourself. It is not acceptable even to stumble. Do not
tolerate any sin in your life if you are serious about following
Jesus. We have to be holy and sin no more. Without holiness no man
shall see God. Believers that keep on stumbling are on their way to
hell. They must repent and stop stumbling, and they must start
following Jesus every step of the way, and then they will sin no
more, and they will not stumble, because He will guide them He will
keep them. Stop stumbling and follow Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.
