For heaven’s sake, please DO NOT do that. That approach to life is extremely dangerous. It could be Eternally FATAL. You could lose or forfeit your salvation over such a lifestyle. Please do not deceive yourself. Even the New Testament, which emphasizes Grace, also warns us very strongly against such a lifestyle:
As It Is Written: “and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the livingGod. (Hebrews 10:24–31 NASB95)
Even Jesus the Messiah clearly said that those who continually practice sin, will not be allowed to remain in God’s eternal Heavenly Kingdom, or in God’s household:
As It Is Written:“Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever.(John 8:34–35 ESV)
If you choose to continue sinning willfully, instead of fighting diligently to get rid of your sin, that is the same as saying that you don’t want to be a child of God.In order to enter and live in God’s Eternal Kingdom we MUST DO the WILL of the Heavenly Father. According to Messiah Himself, those who refuse to do God’s will won’t live in God’s Kingdom, even if they claim to be Christians:
As It Is Written:““Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’(Matthew 7:21–23 ESV)
So, we MUST do the Heavenly Father’s Will, in order to get into and remain in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.Even Jesus warns us that there are people who are supposed to be in the Heavenly Kingdom, But they don’t get to remain, because they practiced sin and lawlessness, and or they cause others to stumble into lawlessness and sin:
As It Is Written: ““The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.(Matthew 13:41–42 NASB95)
As It Is Written:““Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it.“(Matthew 21:43 NASB95)
As It Is Written:““I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”(Matthew 8:11–12 NASB95)
In order to live and to remain in God’s Kingdom, we MUST produce the Fruit of the Kingdom. There is NO WAY that it can be the fruit of God’s kingdom to rebel and to continue to reject God’s Laws, Commandments and His Instructions. There is not a snowballs chance in Phoenix that it is the will of God for us to continue to sin willfully.
He sent Jesus to die to pay the penalty for our sins. He sent us the power of the Holy Spirit which He used to create the universe, and the same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead, so that we could REPENT, TURN AWAY FROM, and OVERCOME sin, NOT so that we could continue to rebel Or disobey God on purpose, while still expecting to receive the blessings of God’s Kingdom. That would be delusional.
There is not a chance that it is God’s Will for us to continue sinning. Jesus died to give us Grace so that we would OVERCOME our sin, and NOT so that we would continue to be a slave to sin, (see Titus 2:11-15). Grace is there to help us REPENT, to help us OVERCOME sin, and to successfully turn away from it, (Romans 6:1,13:14, 19).
Grace is given to us to OVERCOME sin, not as a license to indulge sin. Using grace as a license to continue to sin is the SAME as DENYING Jesus Christ, (Jude 1:4). People who think and live a lifestyle of sin, while thinking that they will be forgiven and enter Heaven without repenting; they are deceiving themselves. Such people are not truly born of God at all:
As It Is Written:“Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.(1 John 3:7–10 NASB95)
So, please do not assume that you can go on sinning on purpose and that you will be forgiven and go to heaven without repenting and without producing the fruit of God’s kingdom. Such a lifestyle would mean eternal death and separation from God. If there are things that you know you need to overcome, please get serious about it. Turn away from it. Keep asking for the Holy Spirit to help you overcome evil by doing by doing what God says is good. Don’t use grace as a license to sin. Use grace is God intended; to help you overcome sin.
As It Is Written:“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.(Romans 12:21 NASB95)
