THE POWER OF KNOWING THAT YOU CAN NOT SIN.
It is high time we believe the word of God as it is and not use the infirmities of heart to believe that is not true. Our daily response to the word of God is important. When we release those infirmities to the Lord, He will take care of it and prove Himself strong in us. The word of God addresses every growth. What a man know has power over him, for that will take over his thoughts and minds. People will say is not possible to live without sin even as a believer. But the truth is we can live without sin. We are supposed to live without sin and if you sin there is provision in Christ Jesus who is the propitiation for our sins. But please I want to say this before going further and I pray for understanding for you. This will be clear through His Word to make you know that the power of knowing will keep you not to sin.
The Son of God has given us and understanding.
1 John 5:20 And WE KNOW that the Son of God is come, and hath GIVEN US AN UNDERSTANDING, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
My emphasis is on the word WE KNOW. we also see the things listed that we know there. We must arrive at this knowledge of knowing. When we don’t come to this point of knowing our walk will slow down and we will live a defeated live.
1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
What a man has kept in his heart by some form of knowledge will always keep him especially when he has proves. You will hardly take him away from it. Now let’s hit the word.
1 John 3:9 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.
I know this will be a challenge for some folks. We will still question it that but am born of God and I still sin. So what’s happening? To me always staying or reading this word challenges my life. But I know I need to come to that form of knowing. Until we know we can not sin we will keep sinning. Not just the knowing but what you must know is you are born of God, the seed of God remains in you, that seeds has the power and the capacity to break you from sinning and break you from every addictions you always find yourself. It’s reads he cannot sin. This is not just a confession. You know in confession you try to bring your whole being into it and also remind yourself. I love confessing the word. But this is a knowing that you can not sin because of the seed of God is in you. What is that seed? We must know that in the Kingdom of God we are made of seed. We are born of seed. Seed has power, it has is life(you can read my article on this blog on THE TWO TYPES OF SEEDS). It gives life to the fruit it bears. It has life.
We understand from the parable of the sower that seed is the word of God.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD.
Our birth is not without a seed. We are born of a kind of seed and every man respond to the seed that birth him or the life in that seed. If a man is born of corruptible seed, the fruit such will bear will also be corruptible fruit. But when born of incorruptible seed, the fruit will be incorruptible fruit. I tell you, see gives life. Seed has it own life and it empowers it fruit. It’s pass on the same energy to it fruit. Nothing missing but just all it has.
1 Peter 1:23 BEING BORN AGAIN(BORN OF GOD), not of corruptible seed, but OF INCORRUPTIBLE(SEED), BY THE WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever.
You see that, being born of God not of corruptible seed but of the incorruptible by the word of God. It’s clear. The seed in us can not allow us to sin, though we may decide to go out of it and sin, even when it not convenient that seed gives us help not to but we may say no because of responding to the flesh, because of responding to the corruptible seed. You know what, we ought not to respond to that which did not born us, we are to respond to what we are born of. It’s in responding to that seed of God in us that makes us not to sin. The incorruptible seed by the word of God. It is living, so it can quicken our flesh not to sin. That seed has power of God in it. Remember
1 John 3:9 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.
I love the word of God. It even stated the reason why the whosoever can not sin, it’s whosoever! He can not sin because he is born of God and the seed of God remains in him. Let me shock you with Amplified Version, it helps me a lot.
1John 3:9 No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the DIVINE SPERM, REMAINS PERMANENTLY WITHIN HIM]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.
Note these words:
>No one born of God
>deliberately, knowingly, habitually practices sin
>Divine sperm of God remains permanently with him.
>He can not practice sinning because he is born of God.
We must stay on this knowledge and walk in it constantly and learn to leave by what we know that man can not live without sin. This is the word of God telling us now that whosoever is born of God CAN NOT SIN. It’s says can not, so we can not! We should not! We will not! The word of God is right.
Psalms 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
You can not sin because the seed of God remains in you. If we live our lives depending on that seed. We will escape corruption and sin. Always remember the seed of God remains in you, you can not sin, and seed has life, it has power and it gives you power not to sin, because the previous verse says he that sin is of the devil, that corruptible seed. We are not of that corruptible seed, we will respond to that incorruptible seed we are born of God! Amen!
1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
The power of sin has been destroyed. No Longer again shall we respond to that corruptible seed. We will respond to what we are born of. What we are born of has power to bring us daily to the Lord. It has the power to bring us to Christ.
Again to take us higher to this knowing that we can not sin.
1 John 5:18 WE KNOW THAT WHOSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD SINNETH NOT; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
5:19 AND WE KNOW THAT WE ARE OF GOD, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
You see what it reads, we know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not. Now, we need to come to this understanding. I realise that what you know will tell how you should live. This same chapter of John talks about a form of knowing in the place of prayers.
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
5:15 And if WE KNOW that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, WE KNOW that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Knowing is power. Knowing gives us direction and culture our lives. Knowing is governance over your own life. Some men have come to some knowings of evil that has made them go the evil way of the wicked one. But we need the knowing of the Lord. The knowledge of the word of God we must keep praying for it. We must.
Colossians 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye MIGHT BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL WISDOM AND SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING;
This knowing will bring us to God and by the seed of God that remains in us, we can not sin. It’s also reads that he that is begotten of God keeps himself, that’s Christ.
1John 5:18 We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them.(NLT)
1John 5:18 We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him]. (AMP)
Please know this understanding and keep yourself from sin by it. Respond to that seed of God in you.
We must learn to acknowledge the work of God in us.
Philemon 1:6 THAT THE COMMUNICATION OF THY FAITH MAY BECOME EFFECTUAL BY THE ACKNOWLEDGING of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Being born of God is something we must thank God for. It’s a privilege. The power of knowing you can not sin with the guide of the word of God can keep you from living in sin. The seed of God remains in you. You can not sin. I also recommend this article I wrote WE ARE KEPT BY THE NAME OF GOD.
