Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin

by John Greene

jesus-teaching“But I say the truth to you. It is better for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you at all, but if I go, I shall send Him to you. And having come, He shall reprove [confute or prove wrong] the world concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment concerning sin because they do not believe in Me, concerning righteousness because I go to My Father and you see Me no more, concerning judgment because the ruler of this world is judged.” –  John 16:7-11, ISR98

Businessman hiding his identity behind a face mask.As you are grow in spiritual maturity through the Messiah and the Holy Spirit, you become more sensitive to sin.  You will discern the darkness more and more clearly, which helps you to stand up to it, to be set apart from that darkness. You remove the mask of the world [kosmos] as you discern reality. (1 John 1:8; Romans 7:14-15; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“; “Discernment 101: Learning to be Discerning“; “Choosing to Serve YHWH, Not Man“; “The Unpardonable Sin“)

“But I deem it right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by a reminder, knowing that shortly I must depart this life, as indeed our Master Yahshua Messiah made clear to me. And I will also be diligent to cause you always to have memory of these things after my departure. For not following fables which had been cleverly devised, but having become eyewitnesses of the majesty of Yahshua Messiah, we made known to you the power and coming of our Master.” – 1 Peter 1:13-16, HRB

preacherWhat you believe or don’t believe is important also. There are many leaders and their followers that call themselves ‘Christians’. However, they do not abide by the teaching of Christ as it is clearly presented in scripture. They follow after their own traditions and fables added to scripture as sacred and desirable. (2 Timothy 3:1-7; 1 Peter 5:8-9; Hebrews 3:13; Psalm 1:1-2, 6; “Understanding Sin“; “Freedom: The Law of Sin and Death“; “Discernment: Having an Ear to Deeper Understanding“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“; “Do You Take Sin For Granted?“)

“Everyone who is transgressing and not staying in the teaching of Messiah does not possess Elohim. The one who stays in the teaching of Messiah possesses both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house nor greet him, for he who greets him shares in his wicked works.” – 2 John 1:9-11, ISR98

“Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:21-23, direct translation

(1 Timothy 6:3; 1 John 1:3, 2:22, 5:20; “Understanding Sin“; “Blind Leading the Blind“)

YHWH’s [Elohim] Will is to spread what is really said in scripture, the truth that He wants for His beloved. (Matthew 6:24-33; John 4:24; Romans 12:1-2; 1 John 1:7; 2 Peter 3:14-17; Proverbs 25:26; Ezra 10:11) The power of the Holy Spirit enables you to change, to keep your life on YHWH’s track of righteousness. This is a lifetime commitment as you acknowledge that the mark of sin remains while you live in this world of man, but not forever because you are of the remnant of YHWH Almighty. (Matthew 28:18-20; “Christians: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“; “Your Purpose in the Body of Christ“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because all that which is in the world: The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” – 1 John 2:15-16, HRB

“Accordingly Yahshua [Jesus] spoke once more to them, saying, ‘I AM, the Light of the World. Follow me, do not walk at all in darkness. To the contrary, possess the Light of Life.’” – John 8:12, direct translation

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” – Psalm 119:105, NKJV

Bible-Vision-Holy-SpiritThe light of scripture shows YHWH’s people more and more clearly the condition of sin in life, which they must seek to avoid to the extent possible (in order to be more like the Messiah’s example while on earth). In this way, through the Holy Spirit, you defeat sin one day and one decision at a time. (Matthew 5:16; John 1:5; 1 John 1:5-7; 1 Peter 2:1-9; Ephesians 5:8; Psalm 4:3; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “The Miracle of the New Man in Christ“; “Christian: Living As Light“; “The Plight of the Strong Man“; “Victory Over Wickedness“)

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a set-apart nation, a people for a possession, that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light,” – 1 Peter 2:9, ISR98

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
