live in the House God provides for us

Jesus said he that sins is the servant of sin and he abides not in “the house” forever but a son abides forever. The son lives in the house. We are all sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Where is that house?

Sin is the opposite of keeping the commandments and means your not living in the “house”or the dwelling place, a shelter.

Jesus said that if we keep these two commandments we will keep all the commandments meaning we wont sin. (we will live in the house, the dwelling place, the shelter)

1. love God (all your heart mind soul strength) {a heart commandment}

2. love others (as you love yourself) {a heart commandment}

If you keep my commandments you will abide in my love just as I have kept my fathers commandments and abide in his love. (keep these two and you will keep all the commandments)

I then submit to you that living in the house means living in love. Love is that house. The scriptures say that the lord is a dwelling place. The lord is a shelter. (psalms 91) The lord is a house. The lord is a spirit, God is love, God is truth.

Those that live in Love live in God.

The love of God is IN Christ Jesus. How do you get IN Christ Jesus. He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood ABIDES “IN” me. Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have no life in you. Our spirits are alive through righteousness. Jesus is our righteousness. That is your sins are gone because of the blood, meaning you are free of sin and able to live “in the house.” THE DOOR. Your faith in Christs sacrifice makes it real for you, so your sins are gone. Faith is the substance of things unseen. Remember the blood of the lamb put over the door of the Jews while the death angel passed over. The blood keeps bad things from coming in your door. The door to your heart.

Jesus said he was the door of the sheep, The door of  “The house” or “The door” into the kingdom of God.

The kingdom of God is “the house” where the son abides forever. The house is living in God. God is love, those that live in love live in God and God lives IN him.

When we get our sins washed out by faith in the blood, we then trust in Christ to give us the power to obey the commands of God and not sin. “the spirit of life IN Christ Jesus makes me free from the law of sin and death. The continuous TRUSTING makes the POWER work. You can’t live a sin free life without trusting IN him. Jesus said without me you can do nothing. When you trust him it makes all the powers urging you to sin to not be able to move you.  In the Greek sin is sometimes called the evil urge. In the old testament it says the spirits rule. You trade the chaotic world of principalities and powers ruling over you for the head of all principalities and powers. Jesus gives you your new good urges by faith, not by forcing you with uncontrollable urges like the devils kingdom. What is the kingdom we are trying to get into. Its the kingdom of God (God is love) where love motivates and rules. The only way not to sin. The house is the house of love. Jesus says you must make your home in my love.  It says we are made whole and holy, (set apart) by his love.

reminder to self: I need to add the actual scripture references to this)
