Sin is the transgression of a moral law which exists in the mind and is based upon a limited understanding of that which is right or wrong. We are always judged according to our intentions and motivations and not by results or consequences.
Man’s sin and ignorance is of limited consequences and cannot take preeminence over wisdom, love, power, or the will of Yahweh. Yahweh is sovereign, and in the ultimate he will have worked everything after the counsel of his own will and purpose.
Man’s understanding is of a limited nature, as is his carnal will. A Spiritual mind will love the things of Yahweh. A carnal mind is blind to the glory of the realm of the Holy Spirit. Yahweh will not allow the power of a blind and finite mind to have preeminence over his eternal plan and goodness. If we are not birthed in Christ, we are not a finished product.
If the church we are affiliated with is walking in faith and love, we could be tempted to settle for a limited revelation. To seek for a deeper revelation might be a betrayal to their doctrine.
There was a Holy Ghost filled church at Ephesus that was known for their love to all saints, yet Paul boldly stated his desire to see them receive the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of Yasha and that the eyes of their understanding would be enlightened (Eph. 1:17).
When an enlightened person, through the influence of temptation, acts contrary to his better judgment and transgresses against his own conscience, he has committed a sin. “But every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then when lust is conceived it brings forth sin, and when sin is finished it brings forth death,” James 1: 14.
“But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin,” James 4:16-17 (NKJ).
Yasha said the truth would make us free—not just free from sin, but free from the consequences of sin. “Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into Yahweh’s rest, any of you should seem to come short of it,” Hebrews 4:1.
Man cannot treat others worse than he wishes others to treat him without transgressing against his own understanding and principle. We become the legislators of a law that exist in our own consciousness. When we violate this law we have sinned, or transgressed. “And thinks this, oh man, that judges them which do such things and do the same that you shall escape the judgment of Yahweh,” Romans 2:3.
Yahweh has a way of working his plan, and his ways are above our ways.
“Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee, the remainder of wrath shall you (Yahweh) restrain,” Psalms 76:10.
“A man’s heart devises his way, but the Lord directs his steps,” Proverbs 16:9.
“O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walks to direct his steps,” Jeremiah 10:23.
Though man may sometimes feel that he is more than Yahweh can handle, Yahweh’s method is simple, “Your own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backsliding shall reprove thee,” Jeremiah 2:19.
The Light that Lights Every Man
“There was a man sent from Yahweh, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world,” John 1:6-9.
“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it,” Matthew 7:12-14 (NKJ).
Christ said, “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, Yahweh is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward Yahweh. And whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment: that we should believe on the name of his Son Yasha Christ and love one another, as he gave us commandment. Now he who keeps his commandments abides in him, and he in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us,” I John 3:18-24 (NKJ).
It was necessary for man to function on a limited realm, because his thinking ability could not reach a higher level. He must grow and develop into maturity. He must learn by hearing and acting; therefore occasional mistakes are unavoidable. But, if he is sincere, his mistakes will force him to search for better methods—so it is understood that he will falter and fail along his path.
But when we trespass against the knowledge we posses, we are at fault. We must either harden ourselves against truth and righteousness or judge ourselves down and lower our self-esteem and, therefore, come under severe condemnation.
Without our freedom to evaluate, choose, and act we are on the level of beast, therefore, incapable of fellowshipping with the Father.
“Having made known unto us the mystery of Yahweh’s will, according to his good pleasure which he has purposed in himself; that in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ both which are in heaven (the heavens) and which are on earth; even in him: in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will,” Ephesians 1:9.
