Knowing RIGHT from wrong

 

Proverbs 3:5-6

King James Version

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; 

and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, 

and he shall direct thy paths.


There is only ONE sure way of knowing RIGHT, from wrong.

You must be born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


Unless you're born again, you won't be gifted with the SPIRIT of GOD.

Acts 2:38

King James Version

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.


Only through SPIRIT can you know GOD's laws, and understand them.

Only through SPIRIT can Scripture be made clear.

Only through SPIRIT can you understand the teachings of JESUS.

SPIRIT makes everything easy to understand.

There's no subterfuge.

That's the enemy's way.

SPIRIT's way is truth and clarity.

You will surely know RIGHT, from wrong.

Scripture will tell you.

GOD's WORD is pure, perfect, and precise.

Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


JESUS' WAYS are grace, and truth.

John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


How does one become born again?

-- SURRENDER to GOD.

-- ADMIT you don't know right, from wrong.

-- PRAY that He help you.

-- PRAY to know His WILL and WAYS.

-- ASK for forgiveness, for all sins known, and unknown.

That's the only way GOD will show up.

Through your humility.


We MUST get right with the LORD now.

JESUS very plainly said it here:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.


JESUS is waiting for us to repent.

We've all sinned.

We may not know it, we may not want to admit it, but we've all sinned.

Scripture testifies of it.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


We carry the original sin of Adam and Eve.

We also have our own brand of sinfulness in this world.

It's better we judge ourselves now, that we might be worthy of the LORD.

1 Corinthians 11:31-32

King James Version

31 For if we would judge ourselves, 

we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged, 

we are chastened of the Lord, 

that we should not be condemned with the world.


Let's get RIGHT with GOD now.

Become born again, and be taught by SPIRIT.

In preparation for the ETERNAL LIFE to come.

Being born again will open your eyes, spiritually.

You will know ALL you need to know about GOD.

You will realize how you have sinned.

ALL will be made clear, through GOD's SPIRIT.

You will ALWAYS know RIGHT, from wrong.

SCRIPTURE will make sure.
