  1. Yes these are very True Dan and good to ponder on but Charles Spurgeon was in error in some of his thoughts that he shared and so are others who are acclaimed today. Jesus was not an Angel.

    God also tells us Jesus is our only Teacher through the empowering of The Holy Spirit and having asked for His Wisdom and empowering we can be assured we have His Truth and know when it’s being shared or not shared.

    1. True enough. God often uses people like Spurgeon to teach us, but they are not the real Teacher. And we need to not blindly follow or accept everything they say, no one’s theology is perfect since our knowledge is imperfect and we are sinful. That said, Spurgeon did not believe Jesus was an angel.

      1. We can indeed know God’s Truth Dan, we ask for His Wisdom and Empowering by The Spirit (1Corinthuians 2:9-16 KJV) which none of us were Born with and we are to believe we have received them, to save detail here unless your OK with my doing this but if not I will leave a Link to my Post Message about Wisdom and the Scripture if needed, let me know but as for our continuing to Sin after we are Born Again we need to do what God asks us to do as The Scriptures below confirm.

        Surgeon did say Jesus was an Angel Dan although many are unaware of this but it is confirmed on the link below and in Surgeon’s own words in his Devotions and is also Taught today by some Cults.

        Salvation is a free gift that we choose in Christ Jesus but we will show we have it by our obedience. God tells us to turn from evil and do good, to put our Carnal flesh to death and to Aim to be Perfected in Love and Born Again, so we do not Sin and these are not works but God’s guidelines which we are to obey as confirmed in the Scriptures below. Yes People reject them, they ignore them and excuse them and even change them but they are God’s reality. Death bed repentance is accepted if from the heart which only God knows as Jesus did with the Thief next to Him on the Cross.

        God Tells us to put our Carnal flesh to death……..

        Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature to live according to it or if you live according to the Sinful nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

        Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death therefore whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

        Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

        2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God

        God Tells us to Aim to be Perfected in Love…….

        Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect

        Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God.

        Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore as many as be Perfect be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless where to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

        2Timithy 3:17 That the Man of God may be Perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

        1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.

        1 John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in him verily is the Love of God Perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith hebideth in Him ought himself also so to walk even as He walked.

        2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

        God Tells us we will no longer Sin……….

        1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on Sinning, because he has been Born of God.

        1John 5 18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

        God tells us to to reckon ourselves dead to Sin Dan not to say we will or do sin and we are to put to death by the Spirit our evil flesh which causes us to Sin and Aim to be Perfected in Love and we can do this because Jesus has set us free and no Temptation is greater then we can bear.

        Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

        What we believe in our heart Dan dominates our thoughts and becomes our words and actions. Proverbs 23:7a K.J.V

        John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

        Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from Sin and become Servants to God ye have your fruit unto Holiness and the end Everlasting Life. For the wages of Sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

        What people get confused about Dan are weaknesses and shortcomings, which we all have but they are not judged as Sin, such as Anger when it comes from grief or confusion is not a Sin but we do not hold onto bitterness an resentment and seek revenge instead of forgiving if we do it is Sin. Jesus came to heal not condemn , Man judges critically and without Love and Compassion because he looks on the outside but God sees the heart and knows the motivation or the reason. but we are to Rebuke those who continue to Sin, it is not Love to see Satan get a foothold in their lives and say nothing.

        1John 3 – No one who lives in Him keeps on Sinning. No one who continues to Sin has either seen Him or known Him. Dear children do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.

        Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from Sin, ye became the servants of Righteousness.

        1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God Perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

        Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

        1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of Judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.

        Romans 6:6- 7 For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of Sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to Sin because anyone who has died has been freed from Sin.

        If we claim we have not Sinned an don’t need Salvation we are calling God a lair but if we continue to Sin we are still in darkness(1John1) yes we can be-forgiven if we come to heart repentance but that means we reject Sin and no longer Sin by the empowering of The Holy Spirit as we can see clearly confirmed in the Scriptures above. Paul explained the weakness of the flesh in Romans 7 but shared what to do about it in Romans 8 and other Scriptures as also noted above.
