Show Notes

The body of Messiah today does not have an accurate understanding of what the definition of sin really is. And if we don’t understand sin, we can’t understand grace. And if we don’t understand how sin and grace work together, we won’t be able to understand the plan of salvation for mankind. 
1 John 3:4—Whoever commits sin transgresses the law; for sin is the transgression of the law. 
Paul said in Romans 3:20 that “by law is the knowledge of sin.” In other words, he is saying that if it weren’t for the law, he wouldn’t know what sin is. 
But if the law was “abolished at the cross” (which Yahusha/Jesus clearly said he did NOT come to do, Matthew 5:17), then if there is now no longer any law/commandments to obey, then based on Scripture, there is no more sin, right? If the law doesn’t exist anymore, then sin can’t exist anymore either, right? 
If you’re a critical thinker like me, those assumptions make no sense. 
So, how can someone be a “sinner” if the standard to understanding and identifying what sin is in the first place no longer exists? 
James 1:25 calls the law (aka torah) the perfect law of liberty, meaning it is the law of freedom. Obedience to it is what brings deliverance; it sets us free. Obedience also means transforming your character to reflect the image of our Messiah as well. This is the narrow path.
We our declared righteous by our faith, yes. But faith is just the first step. I am convinced that many Christians are sick today and don’t even know it because the mass message coming from our pulpits today is actually a gospel of lawlessness, advocating disobedience and rebellion to the true word of Yahuah, yet masquerades itself as “light” and “truth.” 
Many Christians are in for a rude awakening in these coming days and I pray that we love the truth enough to be set free by it-pastors included. My fear of Yahuah and my love for the truth is the only thing that gives me the courage to blow the trumpet for my brothers and sisters. 
John 14:15 — “If you love me, keep my commandments.”
