“Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” – 2 Timothy 2:22

Another guy serious about overcoming — life in the Son!
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 sin 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.

Internet pornography—akin to cocaine
A chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuits.
Nicole M. King and Bryce J. Christensen | May 8 2018
The progressives who brought the world the sexual revolution assure one and all that that Internet pornography poses no threat to social or personal well-being; indeed, they argue that Internet pornography deserves the same legal protections afforded expressions of political opinion. But the progressive view on pornography appears ever less credible as evidence accrues showing that addiction to Internet pornography looks very like addiction to cocaine and carries consequences that may prove just as harmful for individuals and families.

I Quit Porn. Here’s What Happened.
APRIL 27, 2018 BY MICHAEL PATRICK LEWIS
… I remember my grandfather used to have a stack of Playboy’s in the barn. …
What’s different now is the rapid, ready availability of a seemingly infinite array of pornographic options. …
Some time ago, I quit cold turkey. Here’s what I noticed.
I have more time to do the things I enjoy. Whether it’s reading a book, doing a puzzle, or just sleeping, the time I used to spend browsing porn sites, once reclaimed, is significant. …
I have a lot more creative energy. Irrespective of the time reclaimed, I have more energy to do these things with the time I have available. In the time since I quit porn, I’ve managed to write another novel. I’ve also lost about ten pounds.
My imagination has returned, as has my appreciation for natural beauty. …
And I can add myself to the growing multitudes of men who, once they quit, have found that a horde of sexual dysfunctions … seem to resolve themselves.
Jesus will help you to overcome sin and temptation, He will deliver you from bondage and addiction but you have to do your part. Jesus will help you to overcome and get into heaven but the you must follow and obey Him. You have to repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and you must live holy.
You must avoid temptation, avoid sin. You must remove the stumbling blocks. Change your ways. You have to fight temptation, resist the devil and he will flee from you. We read in Hebrews 12:4 “You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin;”
We have to change our ways to stay out of temptation to be able to overcome. We read in Hebrews 12:12,13 “Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.”
You will be tempted and you will be tried, but you have to overcome to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”
You have to stop sinning and be holy. You have to work and earn a living. You have to take care of your responsibilities. Jesus will help you in everything, but you have to do your part.
You have to break with sin, bad friends and bad habits. You have to stop sinning, stop cursing, lying, cheating lusting, fornicating, adulterating, cheating, getting yourself into debt, stop being worldly and running after the pleasures of sin. Jesus will help you to overcome but if you do not put in every effort, Jesus will not help you, because you are not serious about following Him. You will end up in hell because of your own laziness and unwillingness. You have to work hard on your salvation.
We read in Luke 13:23“Lord,” someone asked Jesus, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.”
Jesus will help you, but you must do your part.
May Jesus bless you.
