DEATH ROW

DID YOU KNOW that you could be living on death row without realizing it?

I think you will find that these verses paint a vivid picture:

“For the wages of sin is death, but the favourable gift of Elohim is everlasting life in the Messiah Y’hoshua our Master.” [Romans 6:23]

“And this is everlasting life, that they should know You, the only true Elohim, and Y’hoshua the Messiah whom You have sent.” [John 17:3]

“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” [1 John 3:4]

sin = Greek #266. hamartia, from #264; sin. Greek #264. hamartano; prop. to miss the mark (and so not share in the prize).

transgresseth/transgression = Greek #458. anomia, from #459; illegality, i.e. violation of law or (gen.) wickedness. Greek #459. anomos; lawless, i.e. (neg.) not subject to (the Jewish) law; (by impl. a Gentile), or (pos.) wicked.



What the translators called “law” is referring to the Torah, the instructions for having life, the first five books of the Scriptures.

By using the definitions above, 1 John 3:4 reads: “Whosoever committeth sin violates the Torah, for sin is violation of the Torah; thereby one misses the mark and does not share in the prize. And what is the prize? The gift of everlasting life, which is knowing Elohim and Y’hoshua the Messiah.

Next verse: ”And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness (Gr. #458)!’ ” [Matthew 7:23]

“The Son of Adam shall send out His messengers, and they shall gather out of His reign all the stumbling-blocks, and those doing lawlessness (Gr. #459), and shall throw them into the furnace of fire -- there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” [Matthew 13:41-42]

Do you honestly believe that you can sin by purposely ignoring Elohim’s instructions for having life (His Torah), and then you will be rewarded with everlasting life for your transgressions? Selah.
