John 8:11,5:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 And she said, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you. Go, and sin no more."1 [Now many people cannot believe that Jesus meant "perfect" when he said, Be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect, Mat 5:48; but isn't Jesus saying the same thing when he says, sin no more?]

 14 Afterwards Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, "Behold, you are made whole; sin no more for fear that something worse may happen to you."1 [Something worse is Hell. Jesus forgives our past sins, providing we are seeking His help to stop sinning altogether and to even have our desires to sin destroyed. He gives us serious warnings about continuing to sin; He tell us to sin no more; so He obviously has provided a way to comply, which is the inward cross of self-denial.]

Luke 13:3,5,24:47

 3 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish.1 [These times of ignorance God has overlooked; but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, Acts 17:30. For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person (who is an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Eph 5:5. Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. 1 Cor 15:34.]

 5 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish." [The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, ...but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Pet 3:9. From the Word of the Lord within: "Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, who stand forth without repentance!"]

 47 And that repentance and release from bondage of sins1 should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

1 John 3:8-10,5:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]

 9 Whoever is born of God does not commit sin, for his seed [Christ] remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.5

 10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed [distinguished]: whoever does not live righteously is not of God, neither is he who does not love his brother. [If you are still sinning, you are a child of the devil, regardless of what your blind guide priest or minister says differently. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me."]

 18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but God protects the one he has fathered, and the wicked one does not touch him.5 [The one God has fathered is a new creature, who is the believer with Christ resurrected within him; both then are raised to the heavens, to sit down in Christ, who never fell. He cannot fall to sin again because God protects him; he is sanctified, protected from evil. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. John 10:29.]

Romans 6:18,22

 18 Having then been set free from sin, you became the slaves of righteousness.7 [He is speaking to very mature Christians, who have suffered on the cross to be free with sin; but they can still fall to temptation if they are not watchful because they have not received the second step of perfection: to be born of God and unable to sin again because the Father protects them. 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18, John 10:29.]

 22 But now being made free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have the fruit [reward] of holiness, and at the end, everlasting life.9 [To be a slave to God does not mean you go to Bible College or Seminary; that would be totally counter productive. To be a slave to God is to follow the Spirit's continual guidance and commands that you hear and see — but to your supreme joy of sharing in his works of love. Every word and every action is virtuous and perfect because God prompts them; you are doing his will on earth as it is done in heaven by the angels, as you remain in whatever is your current, honest occupation. See this verse's footnote for a more detailed explanation.]

Mark 9:43,45,47-48

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed, than having two hands to go into Hell, into the fire that will never be quenched; [Jesus is emphatically telling us that Hell is horrible, and that if we wish to to escape Hell, sin has to go. He doesn't want us to maim ourselves. He wants us to come to Him so He can purify us and free us from all sin through obedient faith to the commands we hear Him speak to us as we wait on Him in humble silence.]

 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than having two feet to be cast into Hell, into the fire that will never be quenched;

 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into Hell fire;3 [In Matthew 5:28-29 Jesus tells that even looking at a woman with lust is sin enough to lead us to Hell. If we are to escape Hell, while on earth we must be freed from even the desire of our sins. All men's hearts are defiled and must be purified by Jesus to enter the Kingdom of God while we are on earth.]

 48 Where their worm does not die, and the fire is not put out. [What worm? The person in Hell quickly becomes aware that he is no better than a worm, which is a symbol of extreme lowliness; the Lord spoke of himself being considered nothing but a worm by the Jewish population of Jerusalem just before they demanded his crucifixion in mass.]

Acts 26:17-18

 17 Delivering you from the [Jewish] people, and from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you,

 18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, release from sin's slavery, and an inheritance among those who are sanctified and purified by faith in me.'2

Matthew 5:28-29

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 28 But I say to you that whoever looks on a woman with lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.4 [From the Word of the Lord within: "A man must learn control of his body. Mankind's failure—sexual immorality."]

 29  If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your body parts should perish, rather than your whole body should be cast into hell;5 [Looking on a woman with lust, committing adultery, is serious sin that leads to Hell. However, Jesus doesn't want us to maim ourselves; He wants us to come to Him so He can purify us through obedient faith to the commands we hear Him speak to us as we wait on Him in humble silence.]

Revelation 21:7-8,27

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 He who overcomes [conquers sin and the devil] shall inherit these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. [What "these things?"—a new heaven and a new earth; all things new; the fountain of the water of life; no more death, sorrow, crying, or pain.]

 8 But the cowards, the unbelieving and faithless, the abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, magic art practitioners, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.2"

 27 And in no way shall there enter into it [heaven] anything that is defiled, nor anyone who does abominations, or lies; but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life. ["And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called 'The way of holiness.' The unclean shall not pass over it." Isa 35:8. "Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city. For from this time forward the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no more come into you." Isa 52:1 All men are unclean, uncircumcised, and defiled until their sinful, selfish, evil nature within them is destroyed and crucified through the inward cross of self-denial. From the Word of the Lord within: "The pure is innocent of all defilement."]
