SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY
BY: CHICO AND DEBBIE JIMENEZ
ARE YOU A SAINT OR SINNER?
ARE YOU A SAINT OR A SINNER??? IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE BOTH!!! 1 Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, TO THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED IN CHRIST JESUS, CALLED TO BE SAINTS, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Joshua 24:15 choose you this day whom ye will serve.
LET’S SEE HOW THE WORD OF GOD DESCRIBES A SAINT ACCORDING TO STRONG’S CONCORDANCE DEFINITION OF THE WORD SAINT
1) most holy thing, a saint. SAINT COMES FROM THE ROOT WORD hagnos WHICH IS DEFINED 1) exciting reverence, venerable, sacred
2) pure a) pure from carnality, chaste, modest b) pure from every fault, immaculate c)clean.
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Hebrews 13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Hebrews 13:21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
WHEN GOD SEES US AS HIS SAINTS, THIS IS WHAT HE SEES:
1) most holy thing, a saint, 1) exciting reverence, venerable, sacred
2) pure a)pure from carnality, chaste, modest b)pure from every fault, immaculate c) clean.
ISN’T THAT EXCITING NEWS?
Hebrews 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.
Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Ephesians 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
IF YOU ARE A TRUE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS,
THIS IS REALLY HOW GOD SEES YOU!!!
HOW COULD HE POSSIBLY SEE US LIKE THIS??? BECAUSE GOD’S WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN OUR WAYS. Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.
WE DIDN’T EARN OUR SALVATION, IT WASN’T ANYTHING THAT WE DID, BUT BY THE SAVING GRACE THAT IS THROUGH THE ATONEMENT OF THE DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST ON CALVARY!!!
PAUL ASKS IN Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
MANY SEEK THE APPROVAL OF MAN (THE CREATURE)!!! MAN IS HAPPY TO PUT THEIR MAN MADE RULES, RELIGIOUS RITUALS, FALSE EXPECTATIONS AND HYPOCRISY ON OTHERS TO UPHOLD!!! BUT GOD’S WORD IS VERY CLEAR IN
1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. John 12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
GOD DID NOT MAKE MAN FOR MAN’S APPROVAL OR PURPOSES, Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. DON’T BELIEVE OR BE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU!!! GOD IS ALL THAT MATTERS AND YOU ARE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLAME IN GOD’S SIGHT!!!
2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. THESE ARE PREACHERS AND TEACHERS THAT DO NOT KNOW NOR DO THEY BELIEVE THE TRUTH IN GOD’S WORD!!! THEY TEACH COMMANDMENTS AND DOCTRINES OF MEN!!! Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. John 12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
JESUS SAID IN Mark 8:38 WHOSOEVER therefore shall BE ASHAMED OF ME AND OF MY WORDS IN THIS ADULTEROUS AND SINFUL GENERATION; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
THE WORD OF GOD SAYS THAT NOT ALL WILL BELIEVE GOD’S WORD, THEY WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING BUT THE TRUTH; YET PROFESS TO BE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS!!! Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. ALL WILL HERE THE GOSPEL, BUT NOT ALL WILL BELIEVE!!!
John 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
John 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth. John 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.
GOD ALREADY KNEW WHO WOULD AND WHO WOULD NOT BELIEVE HIM AND HIS WORD!!! John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD!!!
JESUS WALKED WITH MANY, THAT DID NOT BELIEVE THE TRUTH COMING OUT FROM HIS MOUTH!!! 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
WHO CALLS ONE TO BE A SAINT??? John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
WHAT QUALIFIES ONE TO BE A SAINT??? RECEIVING THE FREE GIFT OF SALVATION BY FAITH THROUGH THE GRACE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!!! BY MAKING JESUS THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE!!! John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO RECEIVE SALVATION? PAUL SAID IN Romans 10:9 That “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus”, and shalt “believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”. Romans 9:10 For “WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS”; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, “Repent”, and “be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”. Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.
WHY ARE SO MANY SAINTS IN CHRIST JESUS CONFUSED AND STILL CALL THEMSELVES SINNERS??? BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW THE TRUTH IN GOD’S WRITTEN WORD!!!
1 Corinthians 14:33 For GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, but of peace, as in all CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. SINCE GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION THEN THE OBVIOUS CULPRIT WOULD BE THE DEVIL!!! John 10:10 The thief (THE DEVIL) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
JESUS CAME TO GIVE HIS SAINTS ABUNDANT LIFE, NOT TO CONFUSE HIS SAINTS!!! Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.
IT IS TRUE THAT ALL HAVE SINNED, Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. 1 John 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned (PAST TENSE), we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
BUT, ONCE WE HAVE RECEIVED THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE THAT IS FREELY GIVEN TO US BY JESUS, WE BELIEVED AND BECAME SAINTS !!! John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. AT THAT EXACT MOMENT, WE TRANSFORM FROM SINNERS UNTO SAINTS WE ARE NO LONGER SINNERS!!! Romans 3:4 let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
PEOPLE ARE SO CONCERNED WITH THE RELIGIOUS DECEPTION OF BEING RIGHT WITH GOD AND THE WORLD’S DESCRIPTION OF GOOD WORKS, THEY COMPLETELY OVERLOOK WHAT THE WORD OF GOD CLEARLY STATES IN John 6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? John 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
SO THE WORKS OF GOD IS, (IN JESUS’ OWN WORDS) BELIEVING ON JESUS, AGAIN IN Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. BELIEVING ON JESUS WILL MAKE YOU RIGHTEOUS!!!
JESUS SAID IN John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: John 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me. SO WE CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT NOT BELIEVING ON JESUS MAKES YOU A SINNER BECAUSE OF YOUR UNBELIEF, SIN IS UNBELIEF!!!
YOU HAVE TO BE UNRIGHTEOUS TO REMAIN A SINNER!!!
Q: IF YOU ARE STILL A SINNER, DO YOU BELONG TO GOD?
Q: DOES THAT MEAN SINNERS BELONG TO THE DEVIL?
LET’S LOOK AT THIS A LITTLE CLOSER!!! JESUS SAID IN John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (HIS SAINTS) AND . AGAIN, SINNERS ARE the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God. Romans 9:14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? (SINNERS) Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God (SINNERS). 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (HIS SAINTS).
WE SEE THAT SINNERS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD, BECAUSE ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IS SIN,
1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin. WE AS BELIEVERS ARE WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS (SAINTS)!!!
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (SAINTS) Isaiah 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. AGAIN SAINTS, JESUS WASHED US IN HIS OWN BLOOD AND MADE US TO BE KINGS AND PRIESTS. SINNERS ARE NOT WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND ARE NOT KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO GOD!!!
JESUS SAID THAT YOU CAN NOT SERVE TWO MASTERS!!! 1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (SAINTS) WHEN YOU ARE BORN OF GOD (BORN AGAIN), YOU TRANSFORM FROM A SINNER TO A SAINT AND YOU SERVE GOD!!! 1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as HE is righteous.
2 Corinthians 5:21 For HE hath made HIM to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. AGAIN, 1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 5:18 We know thatwhosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. SO WE BECOME RIGHTEOUS BY BELIEVING ON JESUS AND CONFESSING OUR SIN TO JESUS, BECOMING SAINTS INSTEAD OF REMAINING SINNERS!!! Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
IF YOU CAN NOT SIN, THEN YOU CAN NOT BE A SINNER!!!
JESUS SAID IN Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, them from darkness to light, and , that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. JESUS SAID IN THIS VERSE, TO TURN THEM FROM THE POWER OF SATAN (SINNER) UNTO GOD (SAINT) FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS!!!
IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BORN OF GOD (BORN AGAIN) THEN YOU REMAIN A SERVANT OF THE DEVIL AND REMAIN A SINNER. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. NOW LET’S BE CLEAR, 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. AGAIN IN THIS VERSE THESE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL 1 John 3:10 and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God. THE WORKS OF GOD, IS BELIEVING GOD, THAT MAKES THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL UNBELIEF IN GOD’S WRITTEN WORD (JESUS)!!! John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
1 Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 1 Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 1 Peter 1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
FINAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT!!! ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS: DO YOU PLAN TO BE TAKEN UP IN THE RAPTURE??? DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE A PART OF THE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS??? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE RAPTURE WILL INCLUDE SINNERS??? DO YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE A SINNER??? Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Revelation 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF SAINTS. Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Romans 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 1 Thessalonians 3:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
2 Thessalonians 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Colossians 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
NOW YOU KNOW THE TRUTH IN GOD’S WORD, IF YOU HAVE TRULY GIVEN YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST AND HAVE MADE HIM THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE YOU ARE A SAINT!!! DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT!!! THIS IS GOD’S WORD NOT MAN’S WISDOM!!!
Mark 5:36, Be not afraid, only believe.
