I read this scripture this morning and wanted to share it with you. May the Holy Spirit guide you as you seek answers. In Jesus name. Amen.
(26) For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, (27) But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. (28) He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: (29) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? (30) For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. (31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Let's look at the word wilfully what does it mean? done deliberately : intentional
Example: Now ask yourself this. Have you ever lied to someone knowing you were lying but did it anyway? I mean after you had asked forgiveness for lying in your life? Had you repented for lying? God does not like liars. So, if we lie after having lied and repented and we intentionally lie do we not have a sacrifice for that sin as it states in the above scripture? After we had received the knowledge of truth we did it anyway.
This is something to pray on. Does this mean since there is no sacrifice for the sins we commit after we intentionally sin after knowing truth are we no longer under grace? What is the above scripture saying???
In Jesus name with love,
