Salvation 101, is becoming established in righteousness:
Heb 5:12 And though by this time it would be right for you to be teachers, you still have need of someone to give you teaching about the first simple rules of God's revelation; you have become like babies who have need of milk, and not of solid food. Heb For everyone who takes milk is without experience of the word of righteousness: he is a child. Heb But solid food is for men of full growth, even for those whose senses are trained by use to see what is good and what is evil. 1John I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake. (Receive the gift, by faith!)
Romans And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet (feet can represent understanding) shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. 1Jo I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. Heb 2:14 Since then the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise partook of the same; that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death (that is, the Devil), Heb 2:15 and deliver those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. "Listen to the meaning of the word translated "power" in Hebrews 2:14 quoted above:
power = Strong's #2673 katargeo kat-arg-eh'-o
from 2596 and 691; to be (render) entirely idle (useless), literally or figuratively:--abolish, cease, cumber, deliver, destroy, do away, become (make) of no (none, without) effect, fail, loose, bring (come) to nought, put away (down), vanish away, make void.
Again I quote "Romans And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."
The wages of sin is death and death is an enemy, not a Deliverer! There is but One Who can Deliver, and His Deliverence is to the UTTERMOST. Please recive this: Hebrews Therefore He is able also to save to the UTTERMOST those who come unto God by Him, since He ever lives to make intercession for them.
Again I say, concerning sin, if you are a Believer - It is Finished. Receive it by diligent study of scripture, by faith, prayer and meditation. Enter in and let us move on toward Perfection in our growth, because there are still many obstacles to be Overcome on this Path, even after you lay aside sin and realize salvation means to become whole!
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight (weight here means bulge or load) and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Heb 12:2 looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
That is our Pattern. Here lies our Path: Heb 12:3 For consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds. Heb 12:4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. Heb 12:5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons, "My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked by Him; Heb 12:6 for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." Heb 12:7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the father does not chasten? Heb 12:8 But if you are without chastisement, of which all are partakers, then you are bastards and not sons. Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh who corrected us, and we gave them reverence. Shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? Heb For truly they chastened us for a few days according to their own pleasure, but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness. (Not sinners!) Heb Now chastening for the present does not seem to be joyous, but grievous. Nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who are exercised by it. Heb Because of this, straighten up the hands which hang down and the enfeebled knees. Heb And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way, but let it rather be healed.
