Character Purity aims to edify the populace about the need for Character Perfection, and Victory over Sin, before the imminent return of Yeshua (Matthew 5:48)

Victory Over Sin by Sister Mixgirl (April 2008)

Our world needs a blessing of understanding; as mankind needs to recognize that once an individual is clothed with the Righteousness of the Messiah, they have VICTORY OVER SIN (Isaiah 64:6, Philippians 3:9-11, Revelations 3:17,18 ).     Jesus was born in sinful fallen flesh as a means of restoring mankind to its Edenic state, the “crux” of the matter; the very core of the redemption plan.  Jesus was born “under the law”, made sin,  to prevent us from sinning (Galatians 4:4, 1John 3:9).  We need strength.  I hope that through this article God will speak to all, as it is very rich.

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

If one is to understand Prophecy, one will have to study history.  History is fulfilled Prophecy, and when God sent out his Prophets to deliver His messages and decrees it became “history” and every divine occurrence or event solidifies the word.   God is true and every divine event moves us forward in time, then finally it moves us into the present, until the question is asked, what is the next divine event?

Jude 1:5  I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

The same people that God sent the ten plagues to in Egypt for their deliverance, He ended up permitting their destruction, only two of the original group who left Egypt entered into the promise land. God has lead us out of Egypt in 1844 is this a parallel? Yes it is!

Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Not only were the people that God lead out of the land of Egypt destroyed by sin but fallen Angels created sinless by God will be destroyed also, this is very serious, people (James 1:15).

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

God had told the people if you go after this strange flesh and all the false instruments, you will too be burned as a result of sin and iniquity like Sodom and Gomorrah (James 1:15).

The crux of the matter is Victory Over Sin.  So singing, tithe paying, and all the church going, the things that are taking place inside the churches today, can’t take the place of having Victory Over Sin.  Sanctuary Victory Over Sin is the “GOLD”, It’s The First Angel’s Message.  God didn’t come to save us in our sins, Jesus came to save us from our sins, which takes us into the Most Holy Place, where sins are blotted out which is our first experience, the open and shut door principle (Revelation 3:7-13).

The flicking flame has nothing to do with the foundation. It’s the Most Holy Place and remember if the people of the typical day had not confessed their sins, they would not have been forgiven.  In other words, their sins couldn’t be blotted out on the Day Of Atonement.  Judgment will be passed from the dead to the living.  In 1844 we began living in holy time, judgment has already passed from the dead.  The investigative judgment is now on the living (Revelation 11:18).  When you count the time of the Prophecy of the 2,300 days it puts us at 1844, from 457 BC (Daniel 8:14).

When the judgment is passed from the dead to the living for the dead it must be passed and reviewed by God. And Judgment is now on the living. Many people ask how can this be, and for one they are not studying correctly.  We have to move into this walk for ourselves and study, learning how Jesus can part the clouds to gather those that sleep in him and those that remain? Judgment is occurring right now. We as a people must have the same experience as the people did on the literal Day of Atonement.  Remember we are in the Anti-Typical times.  In the typical day it was just a one day affair.

(KJV) Leviticus 23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD

(KJV) Ezra 8:21 Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. (It’s Redemption Plan)

We are in the anti-typical day of Atonement. We should be afflicting our souls.  In the typical day on the first day that  the trumpet was blown, they started cleansing themselves, as they knew that the judgment day was coming. Ten days away, the nation of Isreal got rid of everything that would cause them to be tied to the world in any way or focused on sin.  Worldy books that they should not have been reading, grudges, hate, Malice, and every evil, was shut down, they strived for perfection. Fasting is the equivalent of afflicting our souls.  They literally abstained from food, and anyone that was not ready was forever separated from the nation of Israel along with the Scapegoat in the typical Day of Atonement. They did not let anything take their minds off of Perfection and God. And the scapegoat where all of their sins were symbolically placed on the goat, as all sins were forgiven.  They were prepared at the end of the 10th day. They were clean! Anti-type (us) whom, “God is seeking to cleanse spiritual Israel the Anti-type”. They had to also make an offering to God with fire.

(KJV) Zechariah 8:3 Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. (The Redemption Plan)

When man was created we were made for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit but, once sin entered the world the Holy Spirit couldn’t dwell in man without grace.  Thus, mankind was instructed to build a Sanctuary in the middle of their camp so that God could dwell among them, living until God’s plan was achieved.  God made a direct call for the children of Israel to evacuate their Captivity after Seventy years, history says that there were two to three million Jews during that time period however, less than fifty thousand responded to God’s calling. They had gotten into Babylon they were prosperous they had also moved up the ranks (Babylon now representing the entire world). To go back to Jerusalem they were going back to build the temple which, Nebuchadnezzar had left laying in ruins.   Zechariah, says that Jerusalem is the city of truth.  It was a nine hundred mile journey to return to Jerusalem by foot it,  a treacherous journey. Many tried everything to prevent the Jews from returning back to Jerusalem, their enemies laid in wait to, prevent the call that God, had placed for the Jews, to go back and build the temple. The Levites were the first ones to go on to the side of the Lord when Moses came back from the mountain when the call was made to go back to Jerusalem not one Levite would go; they were the Preachers and the leaders. They had to make a second and a third call when only a few Levites came out of Babylon, returning back to the truth.

When they got there, there for four things they had to do when building the temple, they had to build an Alter before they could ever start building the Temple, and the Alter is the place of sacrifice. The next thing they did was lay the foundation and finally they built the temple and the walls around the Temple.

There were Jews that had never seen it they knew nothing about the temple the ones that had gone into Captivity, as many had died; the young couldn’t even speak the Jewish language.  A generation in the bible was forty years and they were in captivity for Seventy years. The young men had never seen Solomon’s temple, as  they did not know what an investigative Judgment was. The Bible says torment was occurring, as the old men cried and the young men were excited. The older men had seen the original temple, the young thought it was the most wonderful thing they had ever seen, as it was dedicated no Sheke’nah glory came into this temple, Solomon’s Temple the Sheka ‘nah Glory impregnated it but, not this temple.

In 524 B.C. Haggai (there are only two small chapters of his book please read them) came to them and told them to rebuild this temple, as the Messiah will inhabit it.  He told them this temple would be more important than Solomon’s Temple because Jesus would visit it. Everything is about Christ Jesus is what many Protestants of today state, discounting the  Old Testament.  Both Old and New Testaments are important as the redemption was all about Jesus, prophesied in the Old Testament. From the garden of Eden God immediately informed mankind that they had a redemption plan.

(KJV) Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

(KJV) Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Mind will be transformed “Godly” we have to look at this Anti-typically as the sacrifice; selfishness and pride is the head of all sin. God instructed His chosen to built an Alter, foundation, Obediently they built the temple and then finally the walls.   Remember Jesus said he will not dwell in an unclean temple and when he had purged the Temple they messed it up again and when he came back they were rebuked for such actions, Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate (Redemption Plan).

No spirit is within any building anymore, after Jesus died and was resurrected WE became the literal temples.  God gave them the building and he said no stone would be left upon another.  Thus,  no temple has been built since.  Let us LOOK OUT and be ready to stand with our temples cleansed.  God is trying to get us to cleanse our temples.

1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

(KJV) Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Now four things have to be done on The Day Of Atonement.  Gods’s people must afflict their (fast) souls and make holy convocation to God, absent of  servile labor. Make an offering by fire to the Lord.  When the cleansing was taking place,  there was blood on the veil, confession the sins of the dead and the living.  It represented the dead and the living before the day of atonement.  Some Jews had confessed their sin had brought their lamb and the priest had to sprinkle the blood on the veil, those involved died by faith before the Day Of Atonement.  This day of judgment consisted of the blotting out of the sins.

In 1844 the Judgment ended with the dead, and moved on to the living. The people that assembled around the Sanctuary were living people.  Those living people on that day could not do any servile labor.  When this final event took place servile labors were marked by an angel as guilty of sin and abomination.  Since 1844 we have been in holy time, as the day of atonement was a ceremonial Sabbath day. The living today is the antitype on the Day of Atonement.   We should now be preparing to get away from the cares of this world, as God is now preparing the laymen from the inside of the churches to receive the latter rain.

Satan is doing all he can to prevent this from happening, as when we start mixing truth with error it all becomes error. The Omega is the Apostasy of Strange powerc, striving to be more like God.  The warfare has started a battle that is ongoing.  If we don’t believe that we can have victory over sin as many are preaching that we can not have Victory Over Sin before Christ’s returns, which is false.  The  Messiah’s return is conditional, contingent on the remnant/harvest’s readiness (Mark 4).

(KJV) Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

(KJV) Romans 7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

(KJV) Romans 7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good.

(KJV) Romans 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

(KJV) Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not.

(KJV) Romans 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

(KJV) Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Paul is saying he’s having trouble with himself; Professed Christians have been living this life so long they are saying they can’t overcome sin. What Paul was saying many have said Paul was in his unconverted state; Paul wasn’t living for Christ in his unconverted state. He wasn’t an apostle in his unconverted state.

(KJV) Romans 7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
(KJV) Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

(KJV) Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me (that is winning the war) into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Paul is saying sin is a law there is a law of sin (1John 3:4), and the members are our body parts he is saying my mind my feet and hands won’t let me do it Corinthians 12 tells us that our body parts are our members. The key is Jesus, as the bible says Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh yet without sin.  Christ was made in the flesh and blood of mankind.

(KJV) Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

He didn’t say let this flesh be in you or, our arms, eyes, nose and feet. Let our mind be in him because with the mind of Christ Jesus then with this mind we can tell our members what it is  not going to do and not yield.  The key is having the mind of Christ Jesus, as we need this mind of Jesus for a sinless living.  God has foreknolwedge , understanding what theologians would do well in advance.  That is why he gave us the Spirit of Prophecy, as we must understand the prophecy given to us.

To keep our members in line we should fast at least once per week.  Trials lead many to fast.  The first day is the hardest and after the third day the body gives up and goes for the reserves.  Afflicting our souls puts us in a direct line with Christ, things that once bothered us during a fast become unimporttant.  Fasting is how we keep the flesh under subjection, as  the body should be serving the mind instead of the body dictating to the mind.

Just as Satan visited Eve in the garden of Eden using diet, Satan, tried the same thing with Jesus.   Satan tempted Christ at the point of diet. Christ teaches that it takes fasting to cast out certain spirits. (KJV) Matthew 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? (KJV)

Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

(KJV) Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Unless we put self in its place, we are we not going to deny ourselves. When the children of Israel built the alter after coming out of captivity the first thing they did was lay themselves on the alter.  We must have temperance, manifesting all Fruits of the Spirit (Gal 5:22,23).  God communicates with us.   (our temples) If we want victory over sin, we must have Christ, on the inside, for the only hope in glory is Christ “ in us”.   After the nine hundred mile journey out of the world back to Jerusalem  they had to put self (their bodies) on the alter, it wasn’t until they put selfishness and self-righteousness on the alter they could not  lay the foundation for building the temple as Paul tells us:

(KJV) 1 Corinthians 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. We have to start with temperance to have Victory over sin. Peter says,

(KJV) 2 Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

(KJV) 2 Peter 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

(KJV) 2 Peter 1:4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. By adding these things Christ comes in and vices goes out, a sure sign of conversion we become a new creature, God lets us know in the word we are to study to show ourselves approved, The lord wants us to get into our word. Without temperance we can never move to, the next step which is patience then Godliness then, on to brotherly kindness, charity, and faith. It will never happen, and it’s why many of us are failing, not to mention without rest which, many in today’s world isn’t, getting no one can be patient without adequate rest, we must take care of our bodies.

(KJV) Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,   who can do this? Jesus. Temperance gets us ready for the second coming of Christ.

So what is faith? Sin is the transgression of God’s Law, non-compliance with the Ten Commandments.   These red dots (—) represent Traffic lights, if you run a traffic light you have transgressed the law you are now under the condemnation of the Law. You were able to get off from the ticket, running these lights have nothing to do with the up coming lights. When Adam and Eve Sinned in the garden do you think they ate anymore from the same tree? No. but, staying away from the tree would, have saved them? No. They could have kept the law for the rest of their lives but they were still under condemnation. So keeping of the law will not save us no matter how well we keep it, “looking for righteousness by faith here! Keeping the law will not save us because of “The Penalty”.

Legalistic Jews did not understand the plan of salvation, as they were seeking salvation in the law.  We have no righteousness, as we are only righteouss through Christ, obeying the Ten Commandments (Exo 20, Isa 64:6, Phil 3:9).  As an analogy, let’s examine a scenario:  The Police say, I’m going to let you go.  I’ll, pay this ticket for you, but it doesn’t count for the rest of the lights you may run, thus simlarly we are under grace, as Christ paid the Penalty. When adam and eve transgressed God’s law in the Garden Of Eden, Christ becoming the Last Adam had to pay the penalty of death, becoming our living Sacrifice.

(KJV) Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: (KJV) (The Plan of Salvation had already been laid out  if, man had sinned.)

(KJV) Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  The ticket has been paid, your under grace does that give us the right to go and transgress the law again? NO! Jesus came so that, you and I, would have a power source from transgressing God’s Law.

(KJV) Galatians 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
(Belief isn’t enough because devils believe and Tremble)

(KJV) Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

(KJV) Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Faith is believing God Obeying God and we are motivated by Love. We love God we have a genuine love for God. Once we realize after having the mind of Christ, and what God has done for us we love him, that he sent his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him will have ever lasting life.

Righteousness by faith is a precious message, absent of  disobedience.   If we believe God, we are going to obey God, motivated by love.  Paul spoke about our need to do right thing while keeping our body under submission to God. We must have temperance, possessing the power to obey. Christ empowered man with His Divinity, providing an example of obedience, as He gives us power to obey.  His life testifies that we must  obey the law of God.  Every child of Adam is under the bondage of sin. Christ came, edifying all about the need to live a sinless life ( Matt 5:48 ).

Christ took on human nature, he was tempted by Satan out in the wilderness, the time of trouble (at the cross) the love for people he came in contact with, endured temptation, all through his life from childhood to manhood (Matt 4:1-14, Heb 4:15).  Be ye perfect for “I” am perfect.  Jesus took on the nature like all of us born into a result of sin, from Adam, showing us a sinless life, all that we have to bare He endured.  We are to live upright and noble. The Penalty is death for sin, by the flesh we are under the bondage of sin.   Sickness, aging and poor eye-sight is all as the result of sin.

(KJV) Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man (In Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all (Through Adam) have sinned:

We all have to die from the nature of the flesh that’s the first death that is the result of death, unless by the grace of God you’re chosen in the 144,000, withstanding trials and tribulation (Rev 6:17, Rev 7:1-4, Rev 16).  In all by Adam all die, the penalty of sin is “THE SECOND DEATH”. None of the righteous has to suffer the Second Death.  We have to pray as Christ prayed, there was never any desire or an evil propensity in Christ.

Prayer was Christ’s Divine  direct line continuously connected to heaven.  If Satan causd Jesus to sin, he would have bruised his head. Had satan caused Christ to sin, the whole human race would have perished, divine wrath would have fell upon Christ, as it did with Adam.  Christ both in mind and character, was completely withot sin.

Our default system in sin is governed by the throne of grace (Heb 4:16).  This will be changed.  Jesus took it upon himself to take on human nature in all points, yet He was without sin.   We are to keep our feet on the Rock as God revealed.  Christ Jesus is the second Adam.  Individuals who have no desire for additive drugs can never have a desire for individuals that abstan from drugs,  harboring natural hate for their destructive lifes, genuinely hating them.  Enmity, put between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the women was supernatural.  Enmity is natural and supernatural as humanity and divinity was mysteriously combined man and God has become ONE. Enmity to sin and that is the only way we’re going to make it as Christ did.

Also, through bringing our appetites in line with heaven, adding temperance and studying the word of God in prayer; Christ takes control of our minds. Righteousness by faith is simply Obedience and we have the power through Christ and in Him only. Amen (KJV) Phil 2:5 Let this Mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.
