Don't Be So Hard On Yourself

Have you ever done some things that you thought you will never do or say some things you thought you would never say, and the moment it happen, you felt remorseful and condenmed, because you knew that the act that was committed you could not take back? How did you deal with it, did you walk around in condemnation and disbelief because you couldn't believe you done what had happen? What about forgiving yourself and asking for forgiveness and forgiving others. Don't be so hard on yourself, everyone makes mistakes, if this was a perfect world we would not need Jesus. Rememeber, we do not have a High priest who cannot smypathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrew 4:15-16, New King James).

Spiritual Death vs. Spiritual Life

"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin; and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned." (Roman 5:12). The picture is as if Death is standing outside a closed door and man's sin is throwing the door open and allowing Death to come in to the human. This is not Physical Death, but it does have reference to another kind of Death which Pauls speaks about constrasting Spiritual Death and Spiritual Life.

Spiritual death is the Nature of the Devil and Spiritual Life is the Nature of God; out of Spiritual Death come hatred, jealousy, murder, and out of the Nature of God come love, forgiveness and peace. We can understand the prevalence and power of sin in the world today. We many legislate all we please, but until we change the Nature of Man, sin will grow and flourish; we may stop it here or there, but it will spring up elsewhere. The only hope of the human is a new Nature. Spiritual Death, then, is the Nature that lies behind all sinned committed. Man commits Sin, because his Nature produces that kind of conduct. Spiritual Death made Man mortal, only Spiritual Life can make him immortal.

Logos Word verses Rhema Word

Jesus is the "Logos", the "Word," the personal manisfestation of God in the flesh (Matt 1:23). Rhema denotes "that which is spoken. The significance however of rhema as distinct from logos is that "to take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" Eph. 6:17, here the reference is not to the whole Bible as such, but to the individual scripture which the Spirit brings to our rememberance for use in time of need, a prerequisite being the regular storing of the mind with Scripture.
