THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST 8 (Breaking the root cause of Sin)

Image result for Jesus Christ

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Matthew 5:27-28 KJV.

The rate at which death is increasing is alarming. Sin has opened the door for the spirit of death to dominate the earth. Sin is producing diseases, calamities, and war in many countries. Sin is making families and organizations break up.

Before I share with you the root causes of sin, you must understand that sin is at different levels. Today, people define sin in their own terms. Some countries have legalized abortion, gay and lesbian marriage, fornication and other evil acts because of human rights.

We must understand that sin is a virtue that exits outside the virtues of God Almighty (See Galatians 5:22-23). God has knowledge about sin but sin cannot and does not abide in Him because of His holiness. The Holiness of God cannot abide in a sinful jurisdiction (Meditate on Isaiah 58). This is one reason God commanded His angels to drive Lucifer (later became Satan after the fall) and his cohorts out of Heaven when they rebelled (sinned) against Him and His creation (See Revelation 12:7-12).

It is like light and darkness. Wherever you see light, you cannot see darkness. The absence of light brings darkness. That is how God Almighty looks like. God is light and in Him, there is no darkness (See 1 John 1:5). Anyone who says God created sin is ignorant or a liar. God only allows the spirit of sin (this spirit has dominated Satan, his minions and the ungodly) when we walk outside His will.

God cannot create a seed (an evil virtue) and later regret and forgive. If God created sin, then there is no justice if God should forgive us of our sins. God is not like a computer programmer who creates virus and later creates an antivirus software to wipe out the virus.

Since God did not create sin, He has the power and authority to forgive us. Let me explain this analogy with this example. Let’s assume you are with your child in the house. You have provided everything your child needs in the house. Later, you saw that your child has gone outside the house and brought some materials you did not provide for him.

When you observed the materials, your child brought into the house, you saw that it can destroy the life of the child. What will you do as a loving father? Probably, you will reprove or rebuke your child to take those materials outside because you know the damage it can cause.

At this stage, the father is innocent because he did not build those destructive materials for the child. You have the power to punish the child because he brought something into the house you did not create for him. That is how sin entered the race of humankind. The child is like Adam and Eve. The foreign material the child brought into his father's house is the spirit of sin (dominated Satan).

Whatever God created was good (See Genesis chapter one in the Holy Bible). God never created evil things. God created good things and there was nothing evil in His creation. Sin existed outside the creation of God. Sin was active in the beginning before creation began. Sin was another spirit living with God Almighty before the beginning began. Get my message "Before The beginning began" on YouTube for a more profound revelation. Sin was covering the universe in the beginning, but it could not dominate the virtues of God Almighty (Meditate on Psalm 18:11; 97:2 and 1 Kings 18:12).

Sin was inactive until God began His creation. In the book of Genesis chapter one, the Bible says that in the beginning darkness covered the earth and the Spirit of God hovered on the earth. Let’s read from the Word.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:1-2 KJV.

In the beginning, God created the Heaven and earth, the earth was without shape, and darkness covered the face of the earth. Let us search for the word “darkness” from Mickelson’s Enhanced Greek and Hebrew dictionary.

1. the dark
2. hence (literally) darkness
3. (figuratively) misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness
KJV: dark(-ness), night, obscurity.

This means in the beginning, misery, death, sorrow, wickedness, and obscurity (absence of light, unable to explain with the mind, a mystery, unknown) dominated the earth. Bible Scholars believe that Moses (son of Amram and Jochebed) wrote the book of Genesis including other four books (Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and some portions of Psalms). Moses did not find the perfect word to describe darkness because it was mysterious.

The darkness was not inside God. It was outside of God! The Spirit of God was not moving in the darkness. The Spirit of God was moving on the surface of the earth. This means darkness could not dominate the Spirit of God. Remember, the surface of the earth was covered with water. God commanded the water to separate from the earth.

God commanded the light to appear on earth. The light would never have appeared if the Spirit of God did not shake the earth. God did not destroy darkness (spirit of sin). He only separated the darkness from the light. This means darkness existed with God in the beginning. There was an intense battle between darkness and the Trinity in the beginning. The Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) took a decision to fight and walk on darkness. The Heavenly Father took a decision to dominate darkness by creating. The Word (Jesus Christ) took a decision to sacrifice Himself to God’s creation (See John 3:16).

That is how the light took hold in the beginning. This means without Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit we cannot overcome sin. Jesus Christ explained to us that the root cause of sin. He explained to us that sin emanates from the heart of humankind. Get my book “How to Walk and Live in the Spirit” for a more profound revelation. Jesus said, if we look at a woman lustfully from our heart, we have activated the spirit and the thoughts of sin. The same principle applies to women. If a woman looks at a man lustfully, she has activated the spirit and the thoughts of sin.

The Holy Bible defines sin as breaking the laws of God. When someone disobeys the instructions written in the Holy Bible, God sees the person as disobedient. Sin means transgressing against the Word of God (See 1 John 3:4). Sin begins from the heart. When sin dominates our heart, it sends the evil information to our mind. When the mind continues to receive this information, it stores it in the subconscious sector of the brain.  From that point, the brain triggers the actions to the conscious part of the brain. The body will then express the sinful information sent by the conscious brain. 

There are sins caused by Satan and his cohorts. This is one reason Jesus said, we must watch and pray lest we fall into temptation (See Matthew 26:41). When David saw Uriah’s wife Bathsheba bathing, he lusted over her in his heart, and it led to adultery and murder (See 2 Samuel chapter eleven in the Holy Bible).  Know these spiritual truths.
  • Our eyes are gates to our soul and spirit.
  • Our heart is a gate to our spirit and soul.
  • Our ears are gates to our spirit and soul.
  • Our tongue is a gate to our spirit and soul.
  • Our nose is a gate to our spirit and soul.
  • Our sensual organs (anus, "vagina", and penis) are gates to our spirit and soul.

We must guard our eyes by avoiding ungodly videos because it can invite the spirit of sin and lustful thoughts of the flesh to dominate us. The books we read and the music we listen to have a significant impact on our lives. The friends we make, the movies we watch, and the places we enter can corrupt and make us evil. If we don’t guard our heart with diligence, sin will dominate us. If we can guard the gates of our eyes, heart, and tongue, we will be victorious.
