“Born of God or Born of the Devil?”
But you know that He appeared so that He might take away our sins. And in Him is no sin. No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or known Him.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.
1 John 3:5, 6, 9
Jesus came into the world to SAVE the world from its sins. We are NOT talking about the planet, but He came to SAVE those who reside on this planet. He was the PERFECT SACRIFICE for the REDEMPTION of mankind, because of the fact that He was SPOTLESS, without SIN.
The person who comes to Jesus for their SALVATION, MUST come with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, not just their MINDSET, but a TRUE REPENTANCE from their HEART. When they come with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, seeking FORGIVENESS for their sins. God is FAITHFUL and JUST to FORGIVE them of their sins, and they then become “Born of God.” They are a TRUE CHILD of the Living God. And they will from that time on TURN AWAY from their SINFUL lifestyle, they will NO LONGER CONTINUE to LIVE in Sin.
This is NOT to say they will never sin again, we all sin and fall short of God’s glory, but the TRUE CHILD of God does NOT CONTINUE living in sin. If they CONTINUE in their sin, then it is EXTREMELY likely that they did NOT have a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, but only accepted the work of Christ in their mind.
The Scriptures tells us that NO ONE who is TRULY born of God will CONTINUE to SIN, because God’s seed remains in them, and they CANNOT CONTINUE to sin, they are more aptly to RUN AWAY from their sin then to embrace it, and LIVE in it. But because the TRUE CHILD of God is TRULY BORN of GOD, they will have it in their HEART to STRIVE to LIVE as Christ lived, SINLESS.
Those who are “Born of the Devil,” will live a SINFUL life. They KNOW NOTHING of Jesus, in other words, they DO NOT have a relationship with Him, and really don’t care to have a relationship with Him, but would rather LIVE in their sin. Those who THINK they are SAVED, but never TRULY REPENTED from their HEART, of their sins, and CONTINUE to SIN against God, are NOT “Born of God”, but still “Born of the Devil, and they will spend ALL ETERNITY in HELL, the place of UNENDING torment, torture, pain, heartache, agony and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE, unless they come to God NOW, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING their sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be TRULY BORN of God. If you are in these situations, you need to do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
