For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14 King James Version
Do you realize that sin has no dominion over, if you are under GRACE and not the law? Sin has no dominion over the believer who is under GRACE(Who is Jesus) and knows it. That means sickness, disease, debt, lack and any other thing that God declares is not right. The word sin is the greek word harmartia and it means to miss the mark. What is God’s mark for your health? Divine health! What is God’s mark for your prosperity and abundance? Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” You having more than enough is God’s mark for you. It is very important today more than ever that believers KNOW what the scripture says and means. Sin is mentioned 48 times in the New Testament book of Romans but did you know 47 times it is a noun. A noun is a person, place or thing. It is not a verb therefore it does not mean sinful acts or actions. It means the devil, the person of sin, places of sin and the things of sin do not have authority over you because you are no longer under the law but under GRACE.
Now the question is are you under GRACE? Do you believe Jesus took your place and covered your sin past, present and future? Or are you still trying to be righteous and be holy by not smoking, drinking, sleeping around and all the other so called big sins that many in the church focus on? Now let me make clear I am against sin as is God the Father and Jesus so this is no so called license to sin however if you are depending on your own actions of what you do or don’t to make you righteous or have a right standing with God I have some bad news for you. You are under the law and sin does have dominion over you. When you try to live by the law,”I don’t do this, I don’t do that”, you are a debtor to do the whole law. What that means is, yes you may not sleep around but you gossip. If you gossip you are guilty of sleeping around as well because Jesus said if you break one law you are guilty of all of it. That means you are a murderer, a thief, an idolater and all the other things that the law describes. This is why depending on anything other than the Blood of Jesus and finished work of Christ for your righteousness and holiness is foolishness. Don’t take my word for it take The Word for it.
For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace. Galatians 5:4 New Living Translation
Don’t try to live by the law and what you do or don’t do. The Word already has proven everyone who has tried to do it with the exception of Jesus has failed and failed miserably. Stay under GRACE Who is Jesus by receiving His righteousness!!! Jesus loves you and He’s already fulfilled the law for you and done the work of righteousness. All there is for you to do is to believe it and receive it.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
