Amen to that.
Yes Immovable Pastor Lillie and so is ours when we have been Born Again of His seed, we have His Nature not Adams as we see confirmed in the Scriptures below.
1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.
1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him.
God tells us we are to be Righteous in our actions which shows we have Jesus’ Righteousness…
1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him Sinneth not: whosoever Sinneth hath not seen Him neither known Him. Little children let no man deceive you he that doeth Righteousness is Righteous, even as He is Righteous.
When we Sin we are still in darkness as confirmed in 1John 2:3-6 but we do have an Advocate in Jesus and when we are Perfected in Love we have the mind of Christ and do not choose to Sin (1Corinthians2:16) and we walk as He walked by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.
1John 2:3-6 And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His Commandments. He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.
1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment, he that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

Oh this is a marvelous response Anne. Thank you for taking the time to write it! I love that as God’s righteousness is so sturdy and immovable so is ours giving us the ability to walk in righteousness even though the rest of the world is sold under sin!
Your reply is also a very refreshing response Pastor Lillie, so many claim we continue to Sin until we die rejecting many Scriptures that confirm we don’t.
Christian Love and Blessings for the New Year – Anne.
Well I guess I take a moderate stance between the two extreme positions on that matter. I believe that sanctification is both instant and progressive. When Christ comes in we are no longer sinners. We are ssints. At the point of salvation we have all the power we need to be free from sin. Learning to apply that power is the process.
I agree with you Pastor Lillie, God knows us before we are conceived, He knows all things and that we will come to True Heart repentance and accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and so He chooses us to be conformed into the image of Jesus, we are purified and made white, not one of us whom He knows as His own will be lost Eternally, if needed Jesus will bring back the lost Sheep, as He did with me.
Yes we work out our Salvation we don’t work for it, we put our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit and Aim to be Perfected in Love.
1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him Sinneth not: whosoever Sinneth hath not seen Him neither known Him. Little children let no man deceive you he that doeth Righteousness is Righteous even as He is Righteous.
Romans 8:1-4 There is therefore now no Condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be Purified and made White and tried but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall Understand but the Wise shall Understand.
Blessings – Anne.
