The SPIRITS of JUST MEN Made PERFECT

The SPIRITS of JUST MEN Made PERFECT

Our Scripture reading says:

"But you have COME to MOUNT ZION..., to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of JUST MEN made PERFECT” (Hebrews 12:23).

This part of our Scripture reading is drawing our attention to the fact that, when Adam and all his descendants FELL into TRANSGRESSION, it was not only their bodies which were altered to be SINFUL, but their inner “soul” and “spirits” were also altered in this state of SIN and IMPERFECTION.

Therefore God said in Isaiah, “For I will not contend forever, nor will I always be angry; For the spirit would fail before Me, and the souls which I have made” (Isaiah 57:16). After the FALL of Man, the human “spirit” and “soul” were no longer able to live as God expected.

In the beginning, the Holy Scriptures tell us that when God created man from the dust of the ground, He “breathed into his nostrils the BREATH OF LIFE; and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7). But after the FALL, man was no longer a “living being” but he became “living dead” whose “soul” and “spirit” became SINFUL.

However God did not leave us alone in that horrible state of SIN, but He was determined to “RESTORE our soul” (Psalm 23:3) in JESUS CHRIST the mighty Saviour. And in order to do this, Isaiah prophesied about what God will do for us in CHRIST. He said, “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His SOUL an offering of SIN” (Isaiah 53:10).

My beloved Brothers and Sisters, in order for our “souls” and “spirits” to be RESTORED and live, God made the “SOUL” of JESUS CHRIST an “offering of SIN” for us. He did this by sending Him in the likeness of sinful flesh (Romans 8:3), making Him to receive the baptism from John to accept our SINS upon Himself, and dying on the Cross as our substitute. He then resurrected from the dead on the third day.

This is how God RESTORED our “souls” and “spirits” in CHRIST. And due to this RESTORATION power of God, our Scripture reading in Hebrews says that, “the spirits of JUST MEN” have been “made PERFECT.” It is based on this that we are able to “worship God in spirit and in truth” as JESUS told the woman at Jacob’s well from the city of Sychar in Samaria (John 4:5, 24).

It is therefore “lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6) and misunderstanding in Christianity which has turned people to be chanting for forgiveness everyday because they are worshiping God in the FLESH, and not in “spirit and in truth.” Being a Christian is not an outward appearance of dressing on Sundays to go to church and holding the Bible in hypocrisy whiles you are still a SINNER.

If you are a Christian and you are reading this article, God wants you to know that He is only interested in the INNER-TRANSFORMATION of your “spirit” and “soul,” and NOT your FLESH which is not even “subject to the LAW of God, nor indeed can be” (Romans 8:7). You must know as a Christian, that every day prayers of repentance does not come from your “spirit,” but it comes from the DECEPTIONS of Satan who wants to manipulate you through your FLESH to lead you to hell.

You must ask yourself the following questions as a Christian: (1) Am I worshiping God in the FLESH or in spirit? (2) Why am I asking for forgiveness every day? Is it because of my FLESH or my spirit? When you are able to draw this clear line of difference, you will realize that “The Prayers of Repentance” is straight from the pit of hell.

If you misunderstand 1 John 1:9, Satan will make it your “Daily Bread” and he will induce you to worship God in the FLESH so that you will never become “Sanctified.” Meanwhile JESUS also told us to worship God “spirit and in truth.” So do you want to listen to JESUS or Satan the dragon who came “to steal, to kill and to destroy” your soul? (John 10:10).

It is an actual fact that we can never reach the state of being BORN AGAIN if we were to live in the FLESH. That’s why our Scripture reading says that, “the spirits of JUST MEN made PERFECT.” God has made our “spirits PERFECT” in JESUS CHRIST by making us born again of the water baptism and the Spirit of JESUS (John 3:5).

Also the reason why our Scripture reading says that the born again Saints are “JUST MEN” is because they were “justified by FAITH,” and therefore they have “peace with God through our Lord JESUS CHRIST” (Romans 5:1). That’s why God said, “Now the just shall live by FAITH; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in Him” (Hebrews 10:38).

But unfortunately for many Christians today, they always “draw back” into SIN and so they offer the “Prayers of Repentance” over and over again. That’s why for such people, the Apostle Peter said, “But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own VOMIT,” and, “a sow, having WASHED, to her wallowing in the MIRE” (2 Peter 2:22).

As a Christian, you must know that the day that you confessed JESUS as your LORD and Saviour, you VOMITED SIN, and your were “WASHED” from the “MIRE” of SIN. But because you believe in WRONG denominational doctrines, you have always been returning back to your “own VOMIT,” and you are always “wallowing” in the “MIRE” of SIN. It is time for you to return to the true gospel my beloved Christian. Don't be like "a dog" and a "sow" (pig) which the Bible is talking about here.

“A WORD TO A WISE IS ENOUGH”

But those who are among “the spirits of JUST MEN made PERFECT” are BLESSED.
