The Doctrine of the Sin unto Death, Part 2. The believers whose termination is destruction.
Wednesday, January 10, 2001
One of the characteristics of reversionism is to transfer to eternity under maximum discipline.
The Doctrine of the Sin unto Death.
Point 1. Definition and Description, 1JO 5:16.
There is no sin which causes natural death.
This is a reference to sinning when you are in the valley of the shadow of death, PSA 23:4.
Turn to 1JO 5:14-17
Everything has been done from the righteousness of God to condemn their failure, to the justice of God who judged it, to the love of God who provided the solution = grace.
While you are dying, you can still sin.
It is the sins that intensify the suffering in dying.
Turn to 2TI 4:6
The sin unto death is not one particular sin but it is a reference to sinning when you are in the death-shadowed valley of PSA 23:4.
The sin face-to-face with death is you creating for yourself your very own dying misery in the death-shadowed valley God has provided for you.
Turn to 2TI 1:7
HEB 11:5 “By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.”
Reversionistic super-imposition which is suicide, PSA 31:15 “My times are in Thy hand;”
The sin face-to-face with death.
The exit-resurrection at the end of the Church-age called the Rapture.
The sin unto death is always associated with great failure in the spiritual life, suffering and pain, going through all of the eight stages of reversionism.
Point 2. The Conditions for the Sin Face-to-Face With Death.
Divine discipline is the sum total of punitive measures by which God judges, corrects, and teaches the believer in time.
Divine discipline is confined to time, REV 21:4.
Divine discipline results from the believer using his own volition to create his own failures, PSA 7:14-16.
The first stage of divine discipline is warning discipline, REV 3:20.
Turn to PSA 118:17
The sin face-to-face with death, REV 3:16.
Suffering for discipline is a teaching aid unless you ignore it.
Suffering for blessing is bearable and accelerates your Spiritual growth by helping you to apply doctrine to the situation.
