Vile Virus

October 25

“... these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an ADVOCATE with the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST the righteous:"  1 John 2:1

"HE has approached the Bench just once in this Most Superior of all courtrooms ..."

 

Every jot, and every tittle of eternal truth is designed for our good.  Collectively, they make up a hedge against the ever encroaching evil of this present world designed for our bad.  Truth is not meant to intrigue, bewilder, or form the framework for idiotic religious dialogue and debate.  Truth's whole goal and intent is to convict, convert, and consecrate the dead in sin, to life in CHRIST.  The only effective serum able to stem this dreadful virus of the vile, is the prescription HE has written against it.  At Calvary, sufficient dosage was provided to cleanse and heal every person ever born, or who ever one day will be, of sin's plague.  The most hardiest of souls, or should we say: the most foolhardy, carry their disease of sin, to their sad demise, resisting their entire lives, both PHYSICIAN, and Prescription. 

The sole member of the eternal Bar of Heaven is the SON OF GOD.  There HE stands as the most compelling defense COUNSELOR of the eons, holding an unadulterated relationship with the JUDGE.  "For there is one GOD, and one MEDIATOR between GOD and men, the MAN CHRIST JESUS;"  Though unheard of in lesser courts, HE has yet to lose HIS first case.  HE has approached the Bench just once in this Most Superior of all courtrooms with the 'Exhibit A' of HIS OWN precious blood.  "Wherefore HE is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto GOD by HIM, seeing HE ever liveth to make intercession for them."  There, the DEFENSE rests in prayerful watch against all witnesses for the prosecution who seek to have both SAVIOR, and sinner, thrown out of court and into Hell.  "... the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them ... And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our GOD, and the power of HIS CHRIST: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our GOD day and night."  

Sinless perfectionism is the essence of the true child of GOD, by simple virtue of HE WHO indwells us.  "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."  Sincere directionism is the reality however, of lives yet lashed with the bodies of our own death this side of Glory.  Hold fast your copy of HIS Law, while praising HIM for the Advocacy of HIS SON, which shields you from the damning consequences of breaking it.     

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  GOD forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?"


For Love of Country
George Washington  (1732-1799)
(Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army)
"No history now extant can furnish an instance of an army's suffering such uncommon hardships as our has done and bearing them with the same patience and fortitude.  To see men without clothes to cover their nakedness, without blankets to lie on, without shoes (for the want of which their marches might be traced by the blood from their feet) ... and submitting without a murmur, is a proof of patience and obedience which in my opinion can scarce be paralleled."

(winter of 1777 at Valley Forge)
