Living a good and righteous life before the Lord- pt2


As we have said before in many previous blog posts, for the most part, demons cannot make you do anything against your own free will, as God will not let them violate that space that you have within your own being. All demons can try and do is persuade and tempt you to do evil things. But the choice will always remain up to each one of us as to whether or not we will fall for their evil suggestions. Just because a demon plants a thought and a desire in your head to go out and kill someone does not mean that you have to actually try and do it.

Unless you are mentally ill and unbalanced to any serious degree, God will watch your response to these demons just like He did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and He will then hold you personally accountable if you decide to act out on any of their evil suggestions. If you decide to act out on any evil thoughts or desires that are playing in your mind, your day of judgment will eventually come before the Lord, and you will then have to pay the full price for your sins if you do not get saved and get those sins forgiven by the blood of Jesus before you die and cross over.

Even the apostle Paul, who I believe was the greatest of all of the New Testament apostles, had a problem in controlling his flesh and dark side. Here is the verse straight from this man's mouth on he himself having problems controlling some of his own actions and thoughts. This statement is a classic statement on the sin nature that we all have imbedded in us.

"For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do." (Romans 7:15)

In other words, Paul is finding out like the rest of us that we all end up doing things in this life that we know we should not be doing. We can all witness to this classic statement, as we all have problems from time to time in doing things that we know that are not right in the eyes of God.

As we have said before, no man, no woman and no angel is ever going to become the 4th person of the Divine Trinity. Only God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are completely and totally perfect in Their divine makeups and personalities. They are completely and totally perfect all the way down the line in every single one of Their personality qualities.

However, this now leaves God with a bit of a dilemma. This means that every single being that He will ever create is not going to be perfect like He is and they will now be capable of malfunctioning to the dark side. With one third of the angels malfunctioning to the dark side and a good percentage of the human race now doing the exact same thing, there is simply no other conclusion that we can come to. We are simply all fallen and sinful creatures and only the blood of Jesus Christ can make us righteous and clean enough before God the Father to get us into heaven, as the Bible tells us that all men and all women have sinned and fallen way short of the glory of God.

As you will see in the one of the verses I will list below, we are actually born into this world through our mother's womb in sin and iniquity. In other words, we are all born doomed and damned right off of the bat unless we receive and accept the free redemptive pardon that Jesus Christ is offering to each one of us through His sacrificial death on the cross.

Again, here are 7 very good verses showing us that we have all been born into this world as sinners in the eyes of God, but if we accept what Jesus Christ has done for all of us on the cross, that His very own righteousness can then be imputed upon all of us where God the Father will now take us back and grant us entrance into heaven once we die and cross over.
