    Dead man can not sin for they have come out from underneath the power of it… This truth once seen and accepted leads to the equal and opposite truth, which is just as real, one sins because their alive to it….

    Seeing all things come from God through faith, one’s reasoning faculty is accustomed to seeing sin as a power of life, that is something that is just there, as an accepted norm… This power of sin is real, it is something all that have been born into this world have been born under… It is the power that controls all that are alive under it whether it is seen or not… This power can not be stopped or done away with until this creation comes to an end, at the final separation where all things will go to their own place…

    Until then there is but one way to come out from underneath this power, and that is for the created to die to this power… That being exactly what Christ dying on the cross brought to man, his death…

    The power of sin is alive and will remain so till the end, but man can become free from this power by the power of faith… This is the scripture truth, ‘the just shall live by faith’…

    To believe into something beyond the excepted norm of human reasoning.. By faith grab unto the promise of God… To by faith grab unto the promise that He has come and made His abode in one.. This, in one’s innermost being of one’s very existence, this, in the heart of hearts, is His dwelling place… This, scripture instructs one to believe and accept this by faith..

    The way of coming out from under the power of sin is just as real, once accepted by faith… Which is Christ took us to death with Him so the power that held us captive we would be freed from… So one could be joined to another power, that being the power of His life… That being, the faith that says one is no longer alive unto sin, but now dead to it, that being, one has been crucified with Christ and now it is no longer they that live but Christ that lives through them…

    This faith, once believed, instantaneously frees one from the power of sin… But faith in this truth is the only thing that can maintain this freedom… For once will power is again looked to for deliverance, failure and being instantaneously brought back under bondage to this power of sin will be the result…. For the power of faith stands against this power of sin in this world, these are the two opposing camps, for both powers are for the immediate right now, and both powers would have man..

    All are either alive to sin or dead to it… Alive to it, it will produce sin as its fruit, dead to it will produce its fruit, and that being the law being fulfilled in one, but not by one… Where one will have the light of life and walk in the newness of that life that is made free from sin…

    For if one would be freed from sin there is a way, and that way is believing into righteousness…

    Be blessed in the believing…

    Well said.

    And THAT is how we are made able to obey the Commandments.
