Titus 2:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity [lawless deeds, sin], and purify for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works.1 [Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh (sinful nature), Gal 5:24, to become pure. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me."]

Acts 3:26

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 26  God, raising up his servant, first sent him to you to bless you, by turning every one of you from your iniquities [sins]."3 [Peter is apparently referring to the Holy Spirit being poured out on all mankind, which occurred at Pentecost in the previous chapter. The first function of the Holy Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of Jesus, is to prove the world wrong [reprove all men] concerning sin. John 16:8. Every man has his day of visitation from the Holy Spirit, when he hears the Lord's quiet and anonymous reproofs. Those, who do not believe Him, (his words of reproof), remain in condemnation. But if a man heeds His reproofs, the Lord pours his Spirit and words on him, Pro 20:23,33; teaching a man how to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; to then finally judge a man, gathering his wheat, (his works of love, energized and motivated by operational faith), into the barn and burning up the chaff (works of sin) with unquenchable fire the Holy Spirit's baptism of death to the selfish spirit of Satan in a man.]
