A word to leadership in lockdown

4 months ago, as I addressed the complicity of church leadership in allowing unspeakable evil behind the scenes, I’d said ‘Y’all are FIRED.’

‘This word has come to pass.

Many of you pastors will NOT get your church back.

Even in this present crisis, you continue to hustle and try to cling to your influence (and the revenue it brought you).

I decree to you this day, YOUR MANTLE IS TAKEN, and YOUR STAFF IS BROKEN.

Your charisma will wither like grass in the fire, and you will find yourself losing the power you held over people. For many of you, this crisis is your last chance to repent in sackloth and ashes. For some of you, there is no place of repentance.

Repent while you can.

Is Christ endless in YOU?

And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

Hebrews 7:15-16

We often speak of the priesthood of every believer, and perhaps too often we are taught to pursue it by mere carnal commandments and vain religious pursuit that is merely an outward display of piety that diguises our inner life. Is Christ’s life ENDLESS in you? How far does his influence reach in our actions, decisions, emotions, and innermost thoughts and desires?

Oh God, that you would stamp eternity on my eyes and heart!

Throw out your race card

Go ye therefore, and teach ALL NATIONs…


One of the biggest lies you will ever believe in your life is that you are part of an ‘experience’ unique to your culture that no one outside that culture could ever understand or could ever be qualified to address. Jesus sent a bunch of Jewish guys to evangelize the world.

Paul went to the Greeks and Romans. Thomas went to India, and to this day, missionaries are sent by God to speak truth to people who don’t look like them.
You don’t have a black experience, a white experience, a Latin experience, an asian experience… What DO you have, then?

The ‘I got hoodwinked by satan’ experience, of which we have all been partakers. No matter what your culture, the root of every problem you face is SIN. There is good, and evil, the holy and the profane, the unclean and the clean. Everything we think is unique because of culture is just window dressing. Whether the poisoned ice cream you eat is vanilla, chocolate, or rocky road, it’s not the flavor that’s going to kill you, is it?

The cure is always the same. There is no remedy unique to your ‘experience.’
The answer is always Christ, and Him crucified.

Part of the hustle is fooling you into believing that your experience is SO unique, and this deception gives you a compelling excuse to reject any truth that isn’t validated by your particular race card. This keeps us confused, bound, divided, and easy to control by those who would capitalize on this bondage.

Are you ready to break free?

You ARE free

“Then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

Consider that this says ‘make’ as opposed to ‘set.’ To be set free implies a change of circumstance, of an outward condition, whereas to be made free implies a change of identity. In Christ, we have not merely been given a change in our spiritual circumstance, but there has been a fundamental change in who we are.

Even in the natural world, a free man has rights and privileges inherent to his existence. In Christ, we have gone from being the slaves of sin, to being the Sons of God.

If we are Son, we are beloved.
If we are Sons, we are heirs.
If we are Sons, we are destined to become like Him.

Doubt and defeat are the hallmarks of our old lives. Let us remember today that the new creature in Christ has a new nature, and that nature is one of victory and liberty.

Prophetic reminder on motives

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination,How much more when he brings it with evil intent! (Proverbs 21:27)

There was a businessman who used to say ‘People always have two reasons for what they do: the real reason, and one that sounds good.’ Now, perhaps he was a bit cynical, yet this holds true for most people, and I have found in ministry this is nearly always true. Yet the Bible tells us that when our motive isn’t right, even our sacrifice is an abomination. The word used in the Hebrew is ‘towébah’, which is the same word used to describe idolatry, perversion, and bestiality.

Thus we should understand that ulterior motives are a serious sin, and can contaminate even seemingly good things that we are doing. Saints, it’s time to re-evaluate our motives.

We’re not just going to be judged on what we did, but WHY we did it.

It’s time to fast and pray

Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD…

Joel 1:14

This situation with the Coronavirus is a malicious DECEPTION, and many even among church leadership have fallen for it. Even much of the church is paralyzed by fear, and this is not of God. Much of what you’re being told by the media is entirely false. This is part of a diabolical plot to force a premature emergence of the New World Order.

I beseech you, brethren, by the mercies of God, insofar as you are able, to join us in a 7 day fast concerning the Anti-Christ spirit driving the false narrative of this ‘pandemic,’ and which has released a principality of fear that has gripped so many, even among the Church.

Things to pray for:

  • 1That the truth would be revealed
  • That the perpetrators of this diabolical scheme would be exposed and brought to justice.
  • That national leaders would break away from the darkness presently ruling them.
  • That the people of God would REPENT of not merely their sins, but of their ways, their habits, their opinions, their pride and vanity and turn to God with their entire heart and be made whole in Him.
  • That God would shut the mouths of the church leaders who are feeding into the false narrative, or otherwise using the present crisis in an opportunistic way to serve their own interest.
  • That the old guard leaders would get out of the way, or be removed by God. Many have been fired by God, and they know it, but they continue to try to cling to their influence.
  • That the new generation of apostolic leaders would come out of the obscurity they’ve been hidden in and take up their mantles.

A war has been fought against us in secret for decades, and has now come into the open. Is there not a cause?

Who will take up the call to defeat this insidious plot of the Enemy?

Loud sounding gong? A Word on ‘harsh’ prophecies

Delivering a prophecy that seems harsh to our modern sensibilities doesn’t make you a loud-sounding gong without love, contrary to the absolute tripe being taught today.

There was once a prophet who said things like:

Generation of vipers! (Matt. 12:34)
Though you are exalted to heaven, you shall be brought down to hell. (Luke 10:15)
I will profess to them ‘Depart from me, ye who work iniquity, for I never knew you.’ (Matt. 7:23)

He also cursed a defenseless tree for not having fruit.

Who was this mean old ogre of a prophet?

JESUS.

Today’s teaching on how the prophetic must always be uplifiting would condemn JESUS as not having love.

The truth is that we often fail to understand what the Bible teaches because we read it the way it’s been erroneously preached to us. Prophecy is for edification, exhortation, and comfort, but this does not mean it will always be comfortable.

In the US Marine Corps, my Drill Sergeants edified me, getting me into the greatest shape I’ve ever been in. They exhorted with tremendous intensity. Their training is now a comfort when there’s an emergency or danger of any kind.

Some may argue that we’re still supposed to be gentle, but not all situations call for what we now regard as gentle.

Feel free to call me harsh.

The lake of fire is harsher than anything I could possibly say to you.

Am I your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Pick up your cross

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)

What does it really mean to take up your cross?

At the time Jesus said this, if you saw a man carrying a cross out of town, you knew one thing for certain: he wasn’t coming back. Likewise, if we are to take up our cross, the man you were, the man you would be without Christ, that man your flesh wants you to be, must DIE.

This is not an option. It is not some ‘level’ of maturity or of special status in the kingdom, but rather it is the minimum requirement to follow Christ.. and it is good.

There are two kinds of people: those who are dead in sin, and those who are dead to sin. Which will you be today?

Why we don’t need to ask for an Open Heaven

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Gal. 2:20)
 
I never need to ask for an open heaven because the Veil of the Temple was torn when Christ died. I am The temple of the Living God, and heaven is already open for me, not because I asked, nor because I somehow deserved it, but because the Blood of Jesus has made it so.
 
Nor do I live by my own faith. God forbid, for my own faith would fail many times over before I could finish my journey. Indeed, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. This is why I can do all things in Christ. He promised that HIS grace would be enough, and it is.
 
He loved YOU.
He gave Himself for YOU.
He put His Spirit in YOU.
 
Every prayer you could ever set before the Father has already been answered at Calvary.

Faith vs. Presumption

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:16)

What do you really believe about God?

An honest answer to that question will tell you a great deal about where your faith is and it will also reveal the ‘why’ behind so much of your life and how you’ve handled it.For many of us, our perception of God becomes distorted or even corrupted by negative experiences because somewhere along the line we began to believe that faith means believing that God has to give us whatever we want.

Everything about the life of the believer comes through and by Christ, and so we must understand that if Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), God is only obligated to finish what He started. For so many of us, resolving a crisis of faith must begin with recognizing where we have exercised faith and where we have simply walked in presumption.

Once you can recognize the difference, frustration, confusion, despair, and every other thing that comes with a troubled faith walk must flee.

Are YOU willing today to own up to where you didn’t believe, but just presumed?

The Hope of Glory?

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Col. 1:27)

This hope is never meant to be a maybe. In the Biblical context , hope is very different from how we view it now. The word used in the Greek is elpece (Strong’s Gr. 1680), which is a confidence, an expectation. This not a mere chance or probability, but rather it is something which is certain.

The life of Christ was meant to flow through you. This certain expectation of God’s glory in you was not meant to be hidden under layers of personality and culture, buried beneath our vain attempts to fit in with the world around us, no! Indeed, it is not even merely our expectation, but rather creation itself awaits its manifestation in you.

What then shall we do, little flock? Today I dare you to absolutely expect His life to show itself in you and through you. It takes no more faith than it does to believe anything else He’s told us.

You already believe He washed away your sins.

You already believe He indwells you through the Holy Spirit.

You may as well believe that He can and will make good on His promise to glorify Himself through you.

God made you a SON!

So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. (Galatians 4:7, ESV)

So often we get caught up in gifts, callings, ministries, and so much more, and we start to think that our gift or our ministry is our identity. When me mistake our calling for our identity, we call into the trap of working in that calling as a way of relating to or pleasing God. However, the truth is that no matter what your calling, that is your JOB, not your identity.

Whether I am a doctor, a plumber, a carpenter, or even a criminal, I would still be my father’s son. Likewise, your identity in the kingdom isn’t apostle, prophet, evangelist, etc., but it is SON. You might be a prophet for life, but you are a SON for eternity!

If you are a son, then you are no one’s slave. You are the heir! The promises of God are YOURS because He loves you. His favor is YOURS because He loves you. Everything Christ has, and everything Christ is, is YOURS, because you are a SON!

Shall we then neglect our calling? God forbid. Rather, our kingdom activity should be the fruit of our identity.

Do you want clarity in your calling?
Do you need direction for your ministry?
Do you need a breakthrough?

These things are already yours in Christ, because He made you a SON!

Therefore, let us focus on being the Sons of God.

When I was a little boy, I rarely asked my father for anything, and this puzzled him. The truth was that it didn’t occur to me to ask him for things for two reasons: I trusted him, and it was enough for me to simply be around him.

As a grown man, my father told me of all his children I’d honored him the most, and had been the greatest blessing to him.

Do you want to honor God, and be a blessing in His kingdom? Spend time with Him simply for the sake of fellowship. You may be surprised just how much He will reveal to you when you seek His face and not His hand.

Every answer to prayer, every breakthrough, every healing, every deliverance was already accomplished at Calvary. Allow God to grow you as a son, and these other things will be added to you.

Mentoring Emerging prophets

Some prophets ‘turn to the Dark Side,’ so to speak because of a lack of specific Mentoring for their calling. The emerging prophet needs sound discipleship and oversight, as well as safe and accountable environment in which to exercise his gift. Over the years, I’ve mentored quite a few prophets who felt frustrated in their church because they’d hear from God but were actively discouraged from using their gift, or because they weren’t learning how to handle the revelations they were receiving. Still others found themselves overwhelmed with demonic attacks for which they received little or no real support. Pastors, the devil wants your prophets! It is best that you give prayerful consideration to how you might safeguard them from the specific threats they face.

Now, what you do with regard to this may vary, depending on any specific guidance that the Holy Spirit may give you for your particular flock. Nevertheless, here are some things you can do with emerging prophets:

  1. A weekly prayer gathering for the prophets with mature leadership to oversee it.

  1. Specific time set aside for the prophets to exercise their gifts outside of the regular service times, with prophecies being judged and constructive feedback being given.

  1. Prayer assignments for the prophets.

  1. Prophetic assignments.

  2. Specific Bible study assignments to further their personal development.

  1. A dedicated team of intercessors to pray for the prophets.

  2. Thorough training on the gift and office

Remember, as a leader, it’s your job to defend the flock, and a big part of that is by ensuring that your emerging prophets are not seduced by the enemy.

What is the Gospel?

The gospel, in a nutshell is:

The world, and man were created by an infinitely wise, loving and righteous God. Man, through the disobedience of Adam became bound by sin to a mortal life of rebellion against the justice of God.

Because God will not lay aside His justice, sin must be met with wrath, and so Man who dies in his sin must thereby be damned. Just as God’s love is infinite and absolute, so also is His justice, and because He is the source of all life, which He created for His own good pleasure, to live in sin is to commit the greatest of crimes, for in so doing we offend the very Maker of all that exists.

God, in His mercy, however, chose to satisfy the demands of His justice by becoming a man sent to redeem the world by His own blood. Through Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of sin and restoration to fellowship with God were made available to us, if we confess and believe that Jesus is LORD and that God raised Him from the dead.

If indeed we believe this to be so, we must then also believe that we have lived against God’s law, and the only rational response is to REPENT, that is, to turn away from our sin and toward God in a total surrender to the Lordship of Christ. (Acts 2:38) The baptism mentioned in Acts is a ceremonial washing for consecration to the priesthood of God, which marks us as no longer our own, and longer the servants of sin, but as having been redeemed, consecrated to the service of God.

It is this surrender that brings the Holy Spirit into the life of the believer to comfort, accompany, strengthen, and guide the believer in all truth, and to preserve him in the faith until Christ returns or the believer after death is gathered unto Him in everlasting life.

Want to plant a church?

If you are thinking to plant a church, think instead to plant a community rather than an institution. When Jesus addressed the churches in Revelation, he addressed them as communities by city, as a people, and not as an organization.
 
Christian leaders tend to create institutions because the primary driving force of their church plant is the fulfillment of a vision that revolves around their own life and ministry rather than around the life of Christ. Leaders, YOUR vision isn’t enough. YOUR anointing isn’t enough.
 
Man-centered ministry is the reason you can see a man raise up a church of 30,000 but almost never produce one member that is his equal, never mind one who can go on to greater works. Some of your sons, at least, ought to outdo you.
 
Abraham was given the Promise,
Isaac was the progenitor of the specific bloodline for the Promise.
Yet it was Jacob who became Israel, and the nation promise to Abraham is named after him. Wait. What?
 
That’s right. God promised Abraham a nation, but named it after his grandson.
 
Israel fathered the nation, but his sons populated it.
 
Judah received the prophetic word about kingship, but it was David that established that Kingdom.
 
David established its borders, but Solomon built its magnificence to the point that ancient writings in Tibet speak of the splendor of Solomon. Even so, the Seal of Solomon to this day is called the Star of David.
 
For all his splendor and wisdom, even Solomon did not get to complete the Promise.
 
The Promise was ultimately fulfilled in Christ alone. Remember what Galatians 3:13-14 says:
 
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
 
So we see that fathers receive most of their honor through their sons, not through their own lives. If this is not proof enough, consider this:
 
 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
 
Even the very ministry and Lordship of Jesus is for the glory of His Father, and I am sure Abraham isn’t upset that Jesus fulfilled the Promise God made so long ago.
 

Does tithing connect you to your covenant?

Preachers, so many of you are going to go to hell for scaring people into mandatory income tithing with threats of curses.
 
Tithing under the law was expressly commanded to Israel as 1/10 of the agricultural production of the land. This is why God calls it ‘the tithe of the land.’ It was never based on income or wages. Only those who owned land and livestock tithed. There were plenty of non-farmers living at that time, including bankers, jewelers, weavers, stoneworkers, and carpenters. Our Savior was a carpenter.
 
Another interesting detail the preaches love to leave out is that the tithe was given to the priests only twice every seven years. In the 7th year, there was no crop production, so the only tithe was of animals. In the other 4 years the people were commanded to eat the tithe crops, or to sell them and then spend the money ON THEMSELVES. (See Deut 14:26)
 
We are to give generously, give cheerfully, but let no man manipulate you into works of the Law that were never commanded anywhere in the New Testament, nor is there any evidence in the first 600+ years of church history of any church body teaching mandatory income tithing. The tradition of income tithing began in 680 AD when the Roman government instituted it as a tax for their state-controlled church.
 
The New Testament writings do not teach it.
 
The early apostles and church fathers did not teach it. Not one of the thousands of primary source historical documents we have from those who lead the church in all those centuries gives us any evidence at all that the church ever taught it up until the paganized Roman church forced it on everyone in the empire.
 
When the threats of curses do not, work, many preachers then resort to two doctrines to support mandatory income tithing:
 
The first is that Abraham tithed to Melchizedek, and this means we ought to tithe. This is very poor theology, since Abraham did this only ONCE, he did so VOLUNTARILY and NOT by commandment, and it was from property taken in a war. It is extremely poor theology to use a one-time voluntary act to teach people they must tithe from their income.
 
The second lie that is relied upon is the false promise that tithing connects you to your covenant.
 
This is BLASPHEMY. Why?
 
2 Corinthians 5:5 tells us:
 
Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
 
A pledge is a deposit. The KJV says the ‘earnest of the Spirit.’ When I first made an offer on my house, I was required to submit with that offer $500 as an earnest money deposit. That deposit is credited toward the purchase of the house, and is called the ‘earnest money,’ because it is the evidence, the proof, that I was in earnest – serious and committed – about buying the house. It was the sign that I was serious about going through with the purchase.
 
Similarly, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is God’s deposit on our life, the promise that He will complete what He has begun.
 
THAT is what connects you to your covenant written in the Blood of Christ, not your money.

God’s MIGHTIEST Prophet? Really?

The Love of Christ contrains us…

For if we be beside ourselves, it is for God; if we be soberminded, it is for your cause .For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge that if One died for all, then all were dead; and that He died for all, that those who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them and rose again. (2 Cor 5:13-15)

You cannot lead God’s people effectively if you don’t love them. Here Paul tell us not only that the love of Christ compels him to serve God’s people, but WHY it compels him.

They were all dead in sins and trespasses, and were now alive in Christ. Imagine for a moment if a dearly loved family member suddenly died, but then was brought back to life. How would you respond? How would you relate to them? Would you go on as if nothing happened, or would you want to make the most of your time with them because you got them back from the dead? Would you believe that they’d been returned to you for no particular reason or purpose at all?

Most likely you’d believe there had to be some purpose in it, and likewise, God has been purposeful in redeeming His people. Leaders, these people were brought from death to life! It is therefore of utmost importance that, as a leader, you do what you can to be sure that they can live unto Him who died for them and rose again. What can you do to help them in the journey to their God-ordained destiny?

God never resurrects something for it to be useless and without purpose. Remember this today, that there are no idle details in your life.

Little flock, you were dead, but now you live. Get busy living.

Mastering the Art of Prophetic Disclosure

It’s not enough to have heard or otherwise perceived something prophetically. We must also know when to diclose what God has revealed, to whom it is to be disclosed, and how that disclosure is to take place.

What IS Legalism, Really?

 

I hear so many people use the term ‘legalism’ pretty loosely, and usually it’s when they’re talking about something they don’t like in the Bible. Let’s discuss what it really is.

What to do when a prophetic word FAILS to come to pass


 

Over the years I’ve run into many people who were disappointed, disillusioned, discouraged and disgusted because of how so many prophecies fail to come to pass in the church. So often when this is addressed, if it’s addressed at all, they are given excuses or are blamed for the prophetic word’s failure. But is it always the receiver’s fault?

Let’s talk about why prophetic words fail and what to do about it.

The Dirt on Church Hurt


 

I have heard so many leaders talk about people getting hurt in the church, but nearly all the discussion was limited to blaming the people who were hurt, ridiculing them, or making weak arguments as to why they just need to come back to the local church. Let’s have a real talk about why ‘church hurt’ happens and what we can do about it.

What to do when a Prophetic Word FAILS to come to pass


 

 
It often happens that a prophet delivers a word which fails to come to pass, and the recipient of the word is either blamed for not having enough faith, or for not meeting the ‘conditions’ of the prophecy, even if those conditions were never stated. So then, what are we in the church to do when this happens?

Why NO WEAPON formed against you shall prosper


 

 
Many of us are familiar with Isaiah 54:17 but we often don’t know what it really means. Let’s talk about how God set you up to WIN!

Why YOU aren’t Prospering


 

 
Have you ever wondered why it is so many prophets try to convince you that they key to your prosperity it giving THEM money, yet year after year, decade after decade the saints stay broke? Let’s discus the REAL reasons why you’re not prospering the way you could be, and how to turn that around NOW.

Delusions, Confusion and Prophetic Collusion


 

There’s a whole lot of crazy stuff that goes on in prophetic ministry. The other day I had some prophet telling me that their nonsensical ‘prophecy’ was ‘the teacheth of the Holy Spirit,’ and further informed me that God had said so… let’s talk.

Stop chasing prophecies!

God never intended for you to be chasing after a prophetic word every day. This insatiable addiction to prophecy I’ve seen in churches and in Facebook groups is not from God, and it renders people highly susceptible to seduction by the familiar spirits that some ‘prophets’ move in.
To some extent this happens because the leadership of the segment of the church which believes in the prophetic has created a dependency which gives the prophet an idolatrous place in the life of the believer.

Feeling discouraged and need a boost? In 1 Samuel 30, when David and his men returned to Ziklag to find that the enemy had burned their homes and taken their families captive, his men started talking about stoning him, because they clearly blamed him for being away from home when the enemies came. He didn’t go looking for a prophet to comfort or encourage him:

 

And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. (1 Sam. 30:6)

Later in the chapter, he DOES inquire of the Lord for himself, not for encouragement, but for direction. He then takes his men and goes after the enemy. The recover EVERYTHING, and take additional spoils. David then uses his share of the spoils to send gifts to the leaders of Israel in the towns and cities David frequented.
What can we learn from this? The answer to your need for encouragement isn’t always in some prophet, but often in your own mouth, and when you ACT on the word of the Lord, God will position you not just for restoration, but for promotion, IF we ACT, and then use the fruit of our action to bless OTHERS.
When David sent those gifts, it wasn’t just about their inherent value. It also made a statement: I’m your king, I fight OUR enemies, and when I do, I do it for YOU, too… that even when David was fighting for his family and the families of his men, he still thought of the rest of Israel and its leaders. This communicated to them that they could trust David to think of them, even when handling his own personal business.
Are you called to leadership? Stop chasing prophecies, and ACT on the prophetic words you’ve been given already. God and his prophets will still have more to say.

Romans 9 – The Sovereign Grace of God in Christ

Grace isn’t just forgiveness and forbearance, it is the divine influence which is intended to bring the Lordship of God into our life. You don’t have to live in defeat, because Christ provided not only forgiveness, but the power to become the sons of God. Let’s talk.

 

Romans 8 – Free from the Law of Sin and Death!

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2)

What does it really mean to have been made free from the Law of sin and death? What does this imply for us as believers? Should our life consist of continual defeat and sin, or continual victory? Let’s discuss how Jesus Christ made victory possible, probably, even inevitable to those who surrender their life to God through Him.

Romans 7 – The MYTH of the Dual Nature

For so long, many of us in the church have been taught that we have a dual nature, and that we just can’t stop sinning. Usually, Romans 7 is cited as the ‘proof’ of this, when, in fact, Romans 7 describes live WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST. How do we know this? Romans 8 goes on to tell us that we’ve been freed from the law of sin and death described in Romans 7. Let’s talk!
