“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, and to seeds, as of many; but as of one. And to thy seed, which is Christ.”Galatians 3:16. Jesus Christ is the ultimate Seed that was sown by God Almighty in order that all of the blessings of the New Testament come. “So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continues not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
There probably has not been a greater controversy among Christians today than the message of the gospel. Preachers (myself included) and Christians (depending on who they listen to and are taught by) are constantly at odds with others over what is the message of the gospel. So my intention in this article is to clear some things up. My precedence is this: I don’t care what someone writes or preaches, what did Jesus say, what did the disciples that Jesus taught say and what does the New Testament teach?
“Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.” Hebrews 13:9. This is a command from God through the writer of Hebrews. The apostle Paul tells us in 1Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.” It is imperative today that Christians have their hearts established with grace.
The cross of Christ, the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in the history of all humanity. At one moment in time Almighty God and the sinner are brought into a relationship where they become one. Romans 5:10-11. “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” Jesus’ sacrifice at Calvary put away sin - forever! John 1:29.
The Bible tells us in Romans 8:6-7, “Now the mind of the flesh (which is sense reason without the Holy Spirit) is death – death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter. But the mind of the (Holy) Spirit is life and (soul) peace (both now and forever). (That is) because the mind of the flesh (with its carnal thoughts and purposes) is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot.” (Amplified). The supernatural realm is not understood by the carnal mind.
