The “once saved, always saved” lie and sorry “excuse” for ill behavior, has carried many “saved and sanctified” individuals right into hell.
Many of them, did not understand that sin and iniquity are two different animals and that saved is one thing and being delivered, is another!
They didn’t realize they bought “tickets” to the same destination by way of having iniquity unconfessed to God within them (Psalm 66:17-20) and now are right along with those that they “fought” to not be with: the unsaved!
Sin is done by unbelievers/ undead/ flesh-followers/ unsaved, and iniquity is done by a believer on Jesus!
Iniquity holds a greater consequence by way of “knowing better,” yet choosing to do the unacceptable unto God. Iniquity is, sin done by a believer! It is false grace,crooked mercy and perverted hope and faith all in which are not of God’s countenance nor character!
Iniquity is deliberately doing wrong and knowing that it’s wrong regardless of consequences. Believing there really are none to be had… Because they’re “saved!”
“If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and His word is not in us” 1 John 1:10.
“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father — Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world” 1 John 2:1-2.
When a believer truly repents, godly sorrow is it’s companion always! Don’t be fooled people of God, there is a clear difference!
“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death” 2 Corinthians 7:10.
Iniquity is falsely believing God’s grace is the “green light” to do unrighteousness, to eat at the table of devils purposely and claiming “I’m covered by the blood of Jesus!” To commit it, iniquity is lying, cheating and robbing in the “name of God” and so much more! False justification and pride are the “proud parents” of this abomination.
After salvation (Romans 10:9-10) has taken place in ones life, you no longer possess the ability to sin! You become a new creature, housing the Spirit of the living God within you! (1 Corinthians 6:19; Romans 6:1-23; Romans 8) condemnation doesn’t exist to those in Christ!! Because you’ve been “pronounced dead” through Jesus to live reconciled unto God!
“4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
7 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. 8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister” 1 John 3:4-10.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” Galatians 2:20.
However, if you decide to do what is wrong, knowing whats right? You then have iniquity! And Jesus has said that he knows you not if you are a worker of such things. Think about it? How could Jesus know you in a clean form, if you’re dirty!? How in all the dirt you purposely do, can he see the perfect, exalted and glorified reflection of himself?
Jesus said they would say “Lord, Lord I prophesied in your name and cast out devil in your name..” (Matthew 7:22) but guess what? Iniquity, was found in their hearts! And therefore, Jesus wanted no dealings with them… They (saved folk! Because it’s only saved folk, who can do iniquity) still went to take their rightful place in hell alongside the murderer, liar, thief etc.!
How sad is that to say you know Jesus but Jesus says, “I don’t know you, get away from me you workers of iniquity!” (Matthew 7:22).
There are plenty of workers of iniquity today and blindly, don’t even know it.. And for some, don’t care!.. For “tomorrow, always comes” in their minds.
In the following scripture, Jesus is confronted by believers in him and Jesus acknowledges them being believers by not calling them workers of sin (which would be for the undead/sinner). However, He calls them believers, workers of iniquity (which can only be done by the believer). Jesus also illustrates that both unbeliever and believer end up “side by side” in hell, based on their own wickedness and disobedience!
“22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”
He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’
“But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’
26 “Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’
27 “But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’
28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the Kingdom of God. 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last” Luke 13:22-30.
“6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” Romans 6:1-4.
“26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God” Hebrews 10:26-27.
You must control the urge to commit iniquity from the sinful nature of the flesh, by the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is self control!
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other” <Galatians 5:16-26.
The Holy Spirit will cause the drive of doing iniquity, to cease fire against your salvation and deliverance.
If you are dealing with iniquity, repent now.
You may think you’re not doing harm or you’re “getting away with it,” God is going to have you pay for all the “charges” (Job 21:19) you’ve racked up in rebellion. Romans 6:23 the wages of sin is death! However,there is also a “wage” to be paid for iniquity!
“14 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.
15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
16 Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.
18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.
19 God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.
20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty” Job 21:14-20.
Repent! Don’t wait until tomorrow or the next breath, do it now… Lest Jesus say to you that He doesn’t know you, Selah.
“16 Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; 19 but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!” Psalm 66:16-20.
