“He Who Commits Sin Is a Slave to Sin”–Part II, or How to Be Free from Sin

Man comes into existence with the old nature, the old self, and he is a slave to sin and its carnal fleshly lustful desires.  God bids us to come to the cross to let that old sinful spirit within us die a sacrificial death with the Savior.  This is our repentance from sin and the washing of regeneration in which our old sinful self dies and we are cleansed by the blood of the Lamb and given a new spirit from the heart of God.

Then we will desire to come to the light so that the world will know that the good clean deeds we do now are actions derived from His spirit within us.  We will know that He is the one actually doing this miracle of change within us.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that does truth comes to the light that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (John 3: 19-21).

Condemnation Comes by Not Believing in His Name

The truth is that God has provided a way for man to change his ways, and that way is Jesus (Yahshua), the Son of God.  When one persists in living in the darkness of sin, then that person is “condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

A person is condemned because he hasn’t believed in His name?  Yes, for they have not believed in the meaning of His name.  And His Hebrew name Yahshua means “Yah, the Self-Existent One, is the Savior.”  His name says it all in the Hebrew.

How He Saves

He saves His people by first coming down in human flesh and being Emmanuel, God with us.  Then He takes that Lamb to the sacrificial altar (the cross) where all of our sin was placed, and when He died on the cross, then our sin died.  When He was buried, our old nature was buried.  And when He was resurrected, then we were also raised to walk in a newness of life.

From the very beginning of God being with us in human form, it was all about Him saving us from our sins.  Yah says that He alone is the Savior many times in the prophets.  “You shall call His name Yahshua, for He shall save His people from their sins” (Matt. 1: 21).

The word about this is the truth that makes us free from sin and sinning.  He says that He will save us from our sins.  He says it by His word and His word is truth.  And this is the light that shines into the darkness.  This light is His Life that He desires to give His people.  He plans to give His Life to them.  It is His Life coming into us through faith in His resurrection in us that dispels the darkness of sin in one’s life.

When someone shrieks away from this light, they are denying His name and what it means: Yah is the Savior.  “I, even I, am Yahweh; and beside me there is no savior” (Isaiah 43: 11).  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Flies Floating in the Flask–A Poem

I’ve never met a stranger.

I’ve never lost a friend.

I’ve always tried to endear myself

To the hearts and minds of men.

I’ve used the smile to penetrate

The lonely shell of fear.

And one kind word has opened up

The tragic deafened ear.

To comfort, yes, to comfort all–

That is my cry; that is my call.

But something still keeps nagging me

Like flies that float within the flask.

A fleeting question on the wind

Stops long enough to ask,

Physician, why not heal yourself?

What’s all these words you say?

Go home and weep yourself to sleep.

Your wife left you today.

Dear Prodigal Son (with Problems with Sexual Lust)

Dear prodigal son,

This is in answer to the problems you are facing in finding the line between being fleshly minded and spiritually minded in your life.  You mentioned that you had problems with urges of a sexual nature and couldn’t see that one could really be totally successful in combating those urges.

You wanted some help concerning this.  I did too many years ago, when a wise man shared with me this truth.  In fact, this truth was life-changing, initiating a personal transformation of a miraculous nature.

He told me that my old self, the old nature that I was born with–it had to die.  “Wayne, you’ve got to voluntarily surrender it and place that old selfish heart on the cross and let it die there with Christ.  When He, the sin sacrifice  died, your old self died; when He was buried, your old nature was buried; when He was raised from the dead, you were raised from the dead, too.”

Although I wanted to get power over the flesh and the sin driving my actions, this truth hit me hard.  I knew that it was game, set, match.  It was over.  God won.  There was no excuse for me to continue the selfish sinful way I was living.  “How do you do it?” I asked him.

“It all boils down to belief in the resurrection.  Not that just Christ was raised from the dead.  Many believe that fact of history.  No, you are the one that needs to be raised from the dead along with Christ.  You must believe that Christ is raised in you, in your body!  By faith in the operation of God who raised Christ from the dead, you, too, can walk in a newness of life {Col. 2:11}.”

It was not the easiest thing to do, but I had a great support system to help the new “babe in Christ”–me.  It was a life-changer, and I’ve walked on from there those many years ago.”

I hope this helps.  This is what you need–to get it settled, where you can confess, “I am dead, and my life is hid with Christ in God.”

I’ve written more about this on my blog, “Immortality Road.”  Check it out at https://ImmortalityRoad.wordpress.com or check out my books at http://yahwehisthesavior.com/ God bless you in your search,                                               Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“He Who Commits Sin Is a Slave to Sin”

It always comes down to the sin question.  The Savior is not going to let us slide on this point.

“Sin is the transgression of the law.”   Breaking one of the Ten Commandments is the scriptural definition (I John 3: 4).  We all have in the past broken them, but are we still breaking them?

For Christ “shall save His people from their sins.”  For “He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him is no sin” (Matthew 1: 21; I John 3: 5).  Are we professing Christians “in Him” or not?

The True Light is come now.  We have no excuse for our sin today.  If we do not believe in the Light, we reject what the Light can do in our lives.  Man is already condemned if this is the case.

Loving Darkness More than Light

Most human beings reject or do not believe in the Light because they love the dark deeds that they get to do, and they do not want to give them up.  These actions are evil.  And if man is doing evil things, things against God and man–sin, in other words–then he is going to hate the Light that exposes that evil action.  That person will not come to the light because he is afraid that his actions will be discovered.  Most adulteries, fornications, thefts, murders, and evil in general occur at night.

It is only when a person is truly and completely fed up with being a slave to sin–only then will they welcome the cleansing light of His truth.

A Slave to Sin?  Really?

But, a slave to sin?  Is man with his old nature in bondage to sin?  Is sin his master?  The scriptures of truth say, Yes.

Christ was speaking to some who were gathered.  “And you shall kow the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8: 32-34).  The pricked them, for they responded indignantly, “We have never been in bondage to any man.  We have never been slaves.  How then is the truth going to free us from anything?’

He then told them just what kind of bondage He was talking about.  “Everyone that commits sin is a slave to sin.  And the slave does not continue in the house forever: the son continues forever.”  In the KJV, it says “servant.”  But this is rendered from the Greek word G1401 meaning “a slave or bondman.”  Its root word (G1210) means “to bind with chains.”

The apostle Paul wrote about this bondage to sin in Romans 6: 16.  If you yield yourselves to obey the old master Sin in your life, then you are a slave to sin.  You won’t be able to stop.  You will obey sins dictates and holds and demands on you.  But if you obey God in putting that old sinful nature to death, then you will become a servant unto the righteous Spirit of God that He will place inside you through belief in His resurrection.

God has provided a way for the bondage of sin and sinning to be broken.  It is at the cross.  To be free, we must surrender and place our old sinful hearts on the cross.  It’s the only way to freedom from sin and sinning.  KWH

Crying in the Wilderness*

Rich bankers’ international conspiracy

Wants to imprison the minds of your family

To give themselves to the mark of the beast.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

That’s why we’re crying in the wilderness–

The voice of one crying ’cause the world is in a mess.

People, awake out of sleep.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

The Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and those Esau dukes

All claim to be God’s people, but they’re being used

By Satan to subvert the minds of all who’ll choose

To go their way into one world government.

That’s why we’re crying in the wilderness–

The voice of one crying ’cause the world is in a mess.

People, awake out of sleep.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

Crying, crying, you know we’re crying, we’re crying.

People, awake out of sleep.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

The devil’s last attempt now is to dethrone God,

And it’s taking place through rich men even while you nod,

And sleep and say, “Everything’s going to be all right.”

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

That’s why we’re crying in the wilderness–

The voice of one crying ’cause the world is in a mess.

People, awake out of sleep.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

Well, God has Gideon’s army that He’s coming through.

So join the rank and file ’cause He’s calling you

To be just like the Captain Jesus and to do

The same works as our soon coming King.

That’s why we’re crying in the wilderness,

The voice of one crying ’cause the world is in a mess.

People, awake out of sleep.

Prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD.

The Law of Harvest–How God Reproduces Himself

The Eternal Purpose of God: He is reproducing Himself.  The laboratory that He is working in is the earth.  He has created human beings to help accomplish His purpose.  He created their bodies out of the moist clay of the earth.  All things are now in place for this reproduction experience.  But how does it work?

It works through the Law of Harvest.  “Whatever you sow, that shall you also reap.”  Therefore, God, who is the Seed (the Word, the Logos) has planted Himself in these earthen vessels called humans.

To do all this, God created a special creation Adam and his offspring, who He created in His own image.  These are to be vessels of honor, vessels that would house His Spirit, which is the Seed, the Word of God.

“Greater Love Has No Man Than This…”

One might ask, “Why does the immortal God use mortal man to reproduce Himself?”  To express the essence of His nature, which is Love, one must give up one’s life.  For “greater love has no man than this than to lay down his life for his friends.”  Sacrificing one’s life for another is the greatest love.  But the Creator, by His very immortal nature, cannot die. So then, how can God express the greatest Love, which is His essence?

The Great Creator Yahweh, of course, thought all this through.  In fact, in His plan, He scheduled a grand appearance of Himself in a mortal human body.  He chose a special person, Jesus (Yahshua) of Nazareth to house Himself in.  God, the Spirit of Love, would humbly walk among us to show us the way to be like God.  God, the Word, “was made flesh and dwelt among us.”

Christ Is the Seed That Falls into the Ground and Dies

This anointed vessel, called Christ and the Messiah, is the Seed.  He was planted in the earth three days and three nights.  And just like a seed in your garden springs forth, He arose out of the earthy grave and ascended back from where He came.

Yahweh had to come in a body that would and could die in order to show the greatest love.  Without Him giving up His human life on the cross, He could not reproduce Himself, for “except a seed fall into the ground and die, it abides alone.  But if it die, it brings forth much fruit.”

We humans, then, can avail ourselves to be used by our Maker in His reproduction process.  But first we must surrender to this purpose.  We must allow our old selfish heart and life to die on the cross with Christ, be buried with Him in revelatory truth, and then, by believing that Christ was raised from the dead, we can begin to “walk in newness of life.”

We then begin to bear much fruit.  And those who do this will become His fully manifested offspring and will rule this earth with Him during the Kingdom Age when Christ returns.  These have surrendered completely and  have Him fully grown up within them.  These are the ones who God has reproduced Himself in.  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Grace and Faith and the Manifestation of the Sons of God

The Eternal Spirit (Yahweh) chooses out certain individuals to reveal Himself to, and they, in turn, become a witness for Him.  He chooses them out through no merit of their own.  There is nothing they can do before the fact to warrant His election of them.  They have already been selected before they ever came out of their mother’s womb.

It is not to the strong or swift in this world.  He elects or chooses, in fact, those who are weak in this world’s eyes.  In other words, when He was choosing out His disciples, He did not choose the emperor Caesar, the Roman governor, or the Jewish High Priest.  He chose out lowly, “uneducated” fishermen from Galilee.

God Does the Choosing (Electing)

He does the choosing; we don’t.  “You have not chosen me,  but  I  have  chosen  you  and  ordained  you  that you should go and bring forth fruit,” said the Savior.

So He chooses out certain people in the earth to reveal His plan and Himself to.  He “favors” these people by revealing Himself to them.  He gives grace unto them—spiritual gifts.  He deals with them and shows them of Himself.  Without this favor, they are nothing.  Without His favor (grace) they remain the walking dead.  Without Him favoring them by showing them His plan, they would remain lost in the daze and maze of this world system.  Without His grace, gifts, and favor man remains in the guilt and depravity and bondage of his sinful carnal nature—remaining there in that prison until the light of day deliver him—by His grace or favor.

How do we find this favor, this grace?  It is to be found in the Savior, who was “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).  “Grace and truth” came by Him.  Knowing who the Savior really is and what He accomplished for His people is the key in understanding His favor.  But the kicker is that one can’t comprehend His favor unless He has given that person favor.  One has to have His favor in order to eventually comprehend it.

Predestination

Some human beings are “predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son.”  These are the “greatly favored” ones.  They have a singularly marvelous calling, a magnificent fate in Him.  And yet, all of us who are called and chosen share in God’s favor.  For the “manifestation of the sons of God” is the final harvest of the Tree of Righteousness that Yahweh the Husbandman has planted some 6,000 years ago.  When the 144,000 sons of the living God stride forth in their resplendent immortal glory, they will be the final harvest that all of the prophets, patriarchs, apostles, and us have sowed toward for all these millennia.  We all have shared in and have been blessed by Yahweh’s incomprehensible favor or grace.

For  He  is  the Potter, and He makes the human vessel the way He wants to.  And to be created a vessel unto honor—for Him to mold us, a mere piece of clay, into something that could hold the living spiritual water that is His essence—is humbling, yet thrilling.

The Savior was “full of grace (favor, gifts) and truth.”  Our favor is found in and emanates from the Savior.  For “grace and truth” came by Him.  It is a favor, a gift, a benefit, a grace from Him that our sins could be blotted out, that we could have “no more remembrance” of past sins.  “Your sins and your iniquities I will remember no more,” He said.  “And I will write my laws upon your heart.” That is a promise and a favor unto us.  Deliverance from darkness is a gift, a grace, a favor from Him to us.

“Speaking in Tongues” Is Speaking in Other Real Languages–Not Gibberish

Many long for the true Pentecost experience that the early disciples had.  Rightfully so, for we should.  But many long so much that they are receptive to a counterfeit experience, which is part of the “strong delusion” sent out in these latter days.  But is their “speaking in tongues” the same experience that the early apostles had?

Now I know that this may deeply offend many sincere believers who have been swept away in the tide of glossolalia inundating the globe.  How can it be wrong if so many are doing it, some would ask.  “Few there be to find this way of truth,” Christ said.  So beware of what the “many” are doing.

Studying It Out with an Open Mind

Putting aside pre-conceived ideas and traditions, we must go to the scriptures and see what they say in plain English about the subject.  He will reveal His truth to the thirsty and sincere and will pour out His Spirit to them (Isaiah 44: 3).

In Acts 2, the early apostles did not utter syllables that no one could understand.  No!  They spoke in other actual languages.  In fact, the feast goers present in Jerusalem from “every nation under heaven…heard them speak in his own language” (2: 4-6).  These were “devout men,” who were amazed that the Galilean fishermen were speaking in their language.  To emphasize this fact, fifteen different specific languages are listed (v. 9-11).

Filled with the Spirit

So what happened exactly?  Peter explained that this is what the prophet Joel foresaw.  “I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophesy” (v. 17).

The apostles were not just longing anymore to have an experience with God.  They were filled with the Holy Spirit, and God was speaking through them.  They were vehicles of His words to those without.  God was speaking miraculously, expressing His truth through them in another language!  That is a miracle because Christ’s disciples could not have spoken any of those languages, for they had never even heard them spoken.

A Practical Miracle

The disciples on the day of Pentecost were not in their own little worship world.  Nor were they exulting in a unintelligible form of religious ecstasy.  God was using them to speak to others in their own language.  It was a practical miracle performed by God through His servants.  God needed to convey His truth–through those who knew it–to others who did not speak the same languages as His servants.

So God literally took over their tongues and miraculously spoke through Peter, James, and John and the others.

One of the “Gifts of the Spirit”

This ability to speak in another person’s language is one of the “gifts of the Spirit” outlined in I Corinthians 12: 10.  “Divers kinds of tongues” are different kinds of languages.  Tongues are languages.

And I must be honest.  I do speak English and Spanish.  But I have never been taken over by the Holy Spirit and had my mouth speak other foreign languages to people.  Wow.  That would be something.  Other gifts of the Spirit I have been blessed to have received (or rather, to have been a channel of that gift): “word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith”–but not different languages flowing by His Spirit through my mouth.

But someday God will use this gift again.  Someday His sons and daughters will be sent to foreign lands, and He will need to speak to the people there.  And God will speak through His surrendered servants and will pour out through them comforting words about His soon coming kingdom.  And He will comfort them with words in their own language.   Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“My Grace Is Sufficient for Thee”–So What Is Grace?

“Grace” is one of those biblical words that have been so overused that for many, it has lost its true original meaning.  Every denomination has its own spin, but what does it really mean?

To find out we go to the apostle Paul’s writings.  We find him enduring a severe trial which has caused him great suffering.  False prophets at the church in Corinth are slandering him.  They have said that he is a false teacher, that he is taking for himself the offerings that have been collected for the poor believers in Jerusalem.  They are challenging his apostolic authority.

And so he feels that one more letter is necessary to help those there.  This second letter to them will be a vindication of his apostleship, for he knows that if they do not believe him about the Savior, then they will be the losers.

But Paul will not be caught in the trap of appearing to be bragging in a carnal manner.  He will tell them about the visions and revelations that he has had of Christ without boasting according to the flesh (2 Corinthians 12: 2-5).

The Messenger of Satan

Paul also relates to them that he realizes that God sent to him a messenger of  Satan  to  torment  or buffet him “lest he become exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations” that God had given him.  God first blesses him with wonderful visions of Him and then out of love uses Satan to keep Paul humble (v. 7).

Paul says that he asked God three times to take the evil agent out of his life, but was only told by Him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (v. 9).   The spiritual strength that I want to demonstrate through you cannot be perfected unless you are weak, according to your flesh, God was telling him.  So Paul was content with having physical hardships and weaknesses.  For he knew that then God’s power would rest on him.  “For when I am weak, then I am strong” (v. 10).

So What Is “Grace”?

But Jesus (Yahshua) had said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you.”  What is this “grace” that is our sufficiency?  “Grace” is translated from the Greek word charis, #5485 in Strong’s.  Definition: “Of manner or act, especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life, including gratitude: Ie—acceptable, benefit, favor, gift, grace(-ious), joy, liberality, pleasure, thank.

In 2 Cor 1: 15 charis is translated “benefit”—“I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit.”

Charis is also translated “favor” six times.  To Mary the angel said, “…Thou are highly favored,” or graciously accepted, or much graced.  “Thou has found favor with God” (Luke 1:28, 30).  Luke later says that the Christ “increased  in …favor with  God  and man,” still using word “charis.

The word for “gift” or “gifts” is directly from this same word and is used more than twenty times.  It is #5486, charisma.  It is used to speak of God’s gifts unto men and the spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12: 1-31.

So we see that God’s grace to us is his favor to us, his goodness to us in giving us the truth.  He favors (graces) us with the truth, teaching us that “denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.”

It is through this grace that God chooses out His future sons and daughters, who are called “the elect.”  He fills them with His Spirit, and they become His witnesses in the earth for these latter days.  Theirs is a destiny preordained “before the foundation of the world.”  They will walk His walk in the earth and, thus, help bring in God’s new government.  They will do this by faith—believing this eternal purpose, having not first seen it with their natural eyes.
