Well, I knew after the last post, TO SIN OR NOT TO SIN, I would be “opening a can of worms”! Law vs grace – it has been an issue ever since Jesus came. Here is an interesting comment I got from one of my followers on Google+. I know there are some typos, but He does bring up a good point.
Is our quest for perfect flesh raping our soul?
BLIND RELIGIOUS WHANT PERFECT BODIES WHILE THEIR SOULS CONTINUE TO WITHER AWAY,
GOD I DESIRE TRUTH IN THE INNER MAN
ALL FLESH IS A WORK OF ERROR;GOD ALL FLESH ITS WOUND IS INCURRABLE, NO THING AVAILES EXCEPT A NEW CREATION. I CAME TO DESTROY YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH YOUR CURSED FLESH AND SEPARATE AND HEAL YOUR OUL; DELIVERING IT FROM THE DARK VEIL AND PRISON OF THE FLESH[GRAVE CLOTHES
JESUS TO THE RELIGIOUS FOOLS; YOUARE LIKE WALKING GRAVES AS ARE YOUR HOUSES, YOU WHITE WASH THE OUTER MAN, BUT INWARDLY YOUR SOULS ARE STILL FULL OF DEATH AND ROTENESS, YOU HAVE GONE BACKWARDS,
GOD I DESIRE RUTH IN THE INNER MAN [SOUL] CAST OFF YOUR LOVE AFFAIAR WITH YOUR CURSED FLESH;
JESUS BEFORE I CAME AND TOLD MEN THE TRUTH, NO MAN EVER HATED HIS FLESH=DEATH;
FROM THE BROTHER OF JESUS; HOW THE FLESH RAPES THE SOUL; TWICE CURSED IS THE SOUL THAT LOVES THE FLESH;[ITS GRAVE CLOTHES]=PAUL=JESUS=JOB= ALL SAID THE SAME THING; THE FLESH GARMENT IS A GARMENT OF DEATH, AND A PRISON GARMENT; THE SOUL MUST ESCAPE BY FAITH IN WORD OF GOD;
THIS IS WHY; JESUS SAID ALL MEN OF FLESH ARE SPIRITUALY DEAD; AND ARE BUT WALKING INVISIBLE GRAVES WHICH INNOCENT SOULS STUMBLE OVER AND DIE; BEWARE THE CONCISION [ FALSE RELIGIOUS MULTITUDES WHO GATHER IN THE VANITY OF THE FLESH=UNCIRCUMCISION; SAID JESUS;
PAUL WE THE TRUE ARE THE CIRCUMCISION, WE KNOW NO MAN AS TOUCHING THE FLESH;
God’s Word for You:
A New Covenant
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” (JEREMIAH 31:31-34 NKJV)
A New Covenant
For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. (HEBREWS 8:7-13 NKJV)
Which Mountain are You On?
Mount Sinai and the Law
or Mount Zion and Grace?
My Prayer for You:
Please teach us more about Your Love and the Love of the Father with Your Holy Spirit. Let us leave the old covenant law nailed to the cross where You put it. Forgive us for putting our ‘laws’ before Your grace. Forgive us for thinking it’s all about us and what we do or don’t do. We cannot earn Your Love. Thank you for reminding us that it’s still not about our flesh. YOU provided the perfect sacrifice for our sins: Jesus did it – it is finished.
We have lived as a Fatherless Orphan too long. You promised to reveal to us mighty and wonderful things. Teach us Abba Father, give us a Grace Revolution, and let us walk in the grace and favor Jesus died to give us, in Jesus Name.

It’s too bad this has to “open up a can of worms at all.” It’s pretty much the straight-forward GOOD NEWS. But I think God is clearing the religious fog for us all and bringing us solidly into the New Covenant. Your post (To Sin or Not to Sin) was spot-on. I like the alphabetical chart too. Amen! 🙂
What an important posting! Absolutely beautiful, Diana! This should be mandatory reading for the Christian believer.
Thank you Warioress, I had to let it settle in…but Pastors comment just rocked me. I never really thought about it that way. What a truth. I am glad it touched you as well.
Hi, Thanks for the pingback. I wrote the devotion Spiritual Eyeglasses of Grace out of a personal struggle and hoped I could encourage others with my thoughts. Have you visited my blog http://facingtrials.com
Thank you Cheryl, your site looks great!
