 24 For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. [When you continually deny yourself and obey the Lord's commands, you will eventually die to your selfish life on the inward cross of self-denial, and thereby save your soul to live Life in union with God.]

Romans 8:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 For if you live according to the flesh [the sinful nature], you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body, you will live.4 [Therefore mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body which are of the earthly life; fornication, impurity, inordinate affections, evil lusts of the flesh, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Col 3:5. Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion. Eph 4:22]

Galatians 5:24,2:20

 24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh [the sinful nature] with its passions and desires [lusts and affections].6 [After your sinful nature has been put to death on the inward cross of self-denial, then you belong to Christ as you walk in love, following the Spirit, fulfilling the law; and then you receive an imputed righteousness. Having suffered on the cross, you no longer live the rest of your time in the lusts of men, but you live to the will of God, 1 Pet 4:1-2; which is to be obediently led and guided by the Spirit in thoughts, words, and deeds.]

 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.3 And the life, which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. [Christendom, with no knowledge of how to carry a cross, presumes that they have been crucified with Christ by imputation, which is make-believe Christianity. You must mortify your sinful nature on the inward cross of self denial so that you are freed of sin.]

1 Peter 1:6,9

 6 In that greatly rejoice though it is necessary to suffer a few griefs now through various trials, [To receive salvation and the kingdom you first must suffer through tribulations and hardships. This has been mistranslated to be: you may have to suffer. Indeed, all who are determined to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Tim 3:12. The same sufferings are being experienced by all your brothers in the world. 1 Pet 5:9. Salvation comes after suffering. ]

 9 Receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls.3

 25 For whoever will save his life, shall lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake, shall find it.3 [if you live after the flesh (the sinful nature), you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify (put to death) the deeds of the body, you will live. Rom 8:13. To find the superior life of God, you must crucify your selfish life on the inward cross of self-denial, and thereby find the Life of God in union with God.]

John 8:31-32,34,36

 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, "If you continue in my word [not the Bible, but teachings and commands heard from Jesus speaking directly to you], then you are truly my disciples; [If you continue to wait, watch, and listen to Jesus, who is the word and light within your heart, you are a true disciple, who will produce the fruit of the Spirit, who will be guided into all truth, and then who will have become free of all sin.]

 32 And [then] you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."4 [You will only know the truth to become free "If you continue in my word," as verse 31 above states; the way is to continue in His word, which word is not the Bible but the word that is in your heart and mouth to obey. The truth is in the life of God, (who is Jesus), which life is light, which light is the anointing, which is truth. Jesus is the life and the truth, and when you fully possess Him, (the word, the anointing, the light, the life, the truth), He will set you free from the bondage of sin so that sin no longer controls you and is not even desirable; instead you will be guided by God with every word to speak and every deed to be done — that is being free, free from the bondage and slavery to sin.]

 34 Then Jesus answered them, "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.5 [If you are still sinning, sin is your master, and the Lord cannot be your Lord or Master because as the Lord said, you cannot serve two masters. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Those who belong to Christ are through with sin. Remember, every person who sins, denies Him as Lord and Master." Your challenge is to be set free from sin by Him, thus to be a slave to righteousness instead, only speaking the words you hear Him tell you to speak immediately before speaking and only doing what He orders you to do. Don't fool yourself to think you are not sinning; for until you are guided by the light of the Lord in every word to speak and every deed to be done, you are walking in the ways of the world, according to the prince of the power of the air, (Satan), in the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of your flesh and the thoughts of your mind; and that is walking in darkness, which is sin. Until your imagination and carnal mind have been destroyed by the Lord and replaced with the mind of Christ, you are still sinning.]

 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you are truly free.6
