BIBLICAL TEACHING ON WILLFUL SINS (by benaiah juma).
Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Heb 10:29 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?
In this topic I am going to tackle willful sins and sins which are committed out of ignorance. The willful sin entails premeditated sins. Premeditated sins means the sins which you know and you are aware that they are wrong and offend God and you go ahead and sin. Ignorant sins are the sins which a person may be committing even a believer without knowing that he or she is offending the creator; for example women who put on artificial hair, artificial nails and makeup, according to them they are adorning themselves and it is no transgression, but they don’t realize that makeup is seductive and the devil uses it on women to cause men to commit adultery in their hearts by lusting after their beauty. Artificial nails and wigs is blasphemy to the creator who is good and perfect in his works of creation and the same goes for artificial eyelashes. The make up and the wigs and artificial nails, all come from satan and his demons. God will be lenient to sins committed as a result of ignorance than willful sins.
Willful sins are the sins which are done by a person who has come to the full knowledge of the lord and savior Jesus Christ and knows that a particular act offends God. When you come to the knowledge of truth and keep on sinning then this proves enmity between you and the lord Jesus Christ. It is despising the creator and his laws and not giving Him reverence that He deserves. Don’t you think a person who is spitting on the creator and his commandments is worthy of a sorrower punishment? A person who is sinning ignorantly will have no excuse anymore for their sins when a believer or the Holy Ghost confronts him or her and educates them that their deeds are offensive to God.
When you have already been warned by the Holy Ghost or by a believer or by anyone about your sin, the knowledge of truth has reached you. It does not matter whether you accept it or reject it, the truth will remain the truth no matter how hard you oppose and reject it. When we say God is the creator of the heaven and the earth, it does not matter whether people say that evolution and a big bang created the earth, the reality will remain that God is the creator of the heaven and the earth even though no one believes it.
When you come to the knowledge of truth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ you are supposed to repent and give up your sins and start living holy life in Christ Jesus. When the lord Jesus Christ walked here on earth He said that the Pharisees and the world had no cloke for their sins; this meant that they had nothing to hide on, they had no excuse for their sin, because they had been told the truth, they knew the truth and they rejected it.
This is what is going on in the world today, people have been warned about their sins, they have been told the truth but they have rejected it because they love their sin and are not willing to repent and give their lives to Jesus Christ in order for them to live holy lives in Christ Jesus. They want to remain in sin and cause chaos on this earth while at the same time hope in salvation and eternal glory in heaven.
Joh 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
Joh 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
Joh 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
The lord Jesus Christ died on the cross so that humanity could proceed to repentance. The lord Jesus Christ hates sin because He is holy and sin offends Him. When you have heard the good news of the gospel and learnt about the severity of sin and its effects and you keep on sinning and you continue using the Spirit of Grace to sin then you will be in for judgment. The Spirit of Grace is a gift from God to allow people who are living sinful ignorant lives to come to the knowledge of truth and after that proceed to repentance as quickly as possible for the well being of their soul and others. It is a sad fact that people use the Spirit of Grace to destroy the earth as much as they can. Despisers of the Grace of God want to walk naked on the streets as much as they can, they want to kill as much as they can, rape, smoke, watch erotic movies, mock children of God, lie, worship idols, pray to Mary, follow false doctrines the word of God calls this people heretics, gamble, steal, cheat, fornicate, commit adultery and destroy the earth with many other sins.
The earth right now is no more comfortable to live in, saints are crying every day. Saints are crying because of murder, abortion, indecency, persecution, sexual perversion and many other offences you can think of. Some people tend to think that if God was real then He would have punished them by now because they are big sinners, but they don’t realize that God is giving them a chance to repent and turn around because He is a loving, caring and merciful God, that is what the Spirit of Grace is all about.
But because of their folly they continue to use the Spirit of Grace to sin as much as they can, kill as much as they can, abort babies as much as they can, and be abominable as much as they can because they think that there is no such thing as God, and insult people who call on them to repent of their deeds and come to Christ. The word of God was true when it said that in the heart of the wicked there is deceit. These kind of people have been deceived by the devil because they love lies more than they love the truth and they have been made to think that they are going to get away with all their sins. They do not realize that there is a major punishment coming from the kingdom of darkness shortly after they die.
Pro 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.
If you are comfortable on this earth and you do not feel sin in the world grieving your spirit you can classify yourself as a person under a strong delusion. Sin will always offend people who live holy lives in Christ Jesus. When you come to the knowledge of the truth and you continue sinning and you know very well that Jesus Christ suffered the horror of the cross because of your sins, then you make the death of the lord Jesus Christ vain and useless.
You tread underfoot the Son of God, count His blood useless and misuse the Spirit of Grace. And if you tread on the lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the most High God, the king of the universe, the creator of heaven and the earth, you also tread on the father of the lord Jesus Christ who sent his son to die for you on the cross. Anyone that treads underfoot the Son of God is worthy of eternal punishment. Any one that is sinning willfully deserves death.
The greater the one who we sin against the greater the punishment. That is why when a human being dies if they were unrepentant they go to hell and spend a rough spot in hell fire more than the demons and get tortured ruthlessly by the demons because they not only rejected Christ but treaded on Him and despised the sacrifice that He did for them on the cross.
Those souls in hell deserve to be there, God is just and his sentence on those people is just. Jesus Christ did not die for the devil and his angels He died for humanity so that they could forsake their sins and come to Him. Jesus Christ did not die on the cross so that human beings could be more abominable than ever before and misuse the Spirit of Grace to sin and destroy the earth with sin. I even saw some artists in hollywood mocking the cross of Christ.
You should be so afraid to sin when you have been warned by a person or the Holy Spirit. Be a lover of the truth, do not hate the truth, embrace the truth when it reaches you and recover yourself from snares of the devil. Sin and death are synonymous; if you don’t want to stop sinning you will reap everlasting punishment for all eternity.
The word of God talks about taking vengeance on adversaries; this means that the people sinning after coming to the knowledge of the truth are enemies of the lord Jesus Christ. I am convinced in my heart that the lord Jesus Christ can never let a person die without first coming to the knowledge of the truth. God will try as much as possible to warn a person from his wicked ways and if he rejects it, then he or she will have no excuse for their abominations.
Every soul in hell has no excuse for their sins because through one means or the other, the truth reached their eyes and ears. What is going on in hell is that people are begging for a second chance to come back here on earth and repent but it won’t be possible because they hated the truth and wisdom, therefore they are reaping the fruits of their own way, they are reaping what they sowed. The souls in hell cannot be allowed to come back here on earth because, if that would happen then the word of God will be a lie and people would have to be saved by sight not faith.
Pro 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
Pro 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Pro 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Pro 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Pro 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Pro 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Pro 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Pro 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Pro 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
People of God, when a child, evangelist, pastor, bishop, apostle or any person speaks to you about the truth of God, God has spoken to you. God speaks to you through other people. When a person reproves you of your unfruitful works of darkness, God has reproved you. When you reject the plea of this people for you to repent and come back to your maker, you also reject God's call for you to proceed to repentance. It is advisable for you to learn to take heed to instructions and avoid sinning especially when you have been warned by a person concerning your wicked ways. Anyone who hates the truth is an enemy of Jesus Christ because the lord Jesus Christ is the epitome of truth. The lord Jesus Christ told us that He is the way the truth and the life and no one can come to the father but by Him.
Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The lord Jesus Christ told us that He is the way the truth and the life, therefore anyone who loves the truth loves Jesus Christ and vice versa. Sinning willfully is showing the utmost disrespect to Gods laws and his statutes because you already know them and you are stepping on them. Stepping on the laws of the creator is worthy of eternal punishment. Once you know that sin offends the lord Jesus Christ stay away from it to avoid horrible torture and judgment in the afterlife.
