The problem is not about dealing with your sins but your iniquity.
Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
Let us see why God is so specific about iniquity in the word. The problem and consequence of a man’s act concerning sin is located in a man’s spirit not in his mind. The body profits nothing about a sinful or sinless life. Just as a man’s body is trained to function by talents, the spirit of man is trained to function by righteousness.
We are associates of a man who said this “My life I give of my own freewill. No man taketh it away from me”. Jesus did all this because he wanted to GIVE and forGIVE, which was the greatest way to sanctify all of himself unto perfection in love.
INIQUITY AND SIN
When a man practices sin until such a person cannot stop from sinning he/she is programmed for destruction. The issue is not the sin he/she committed but the state of his/her spirit that has become inconsistent with right doing. As such, beware of the effects of sin because sin will lead to iniquity. When sin accumulates, the result is iniquity which is a state of outright turnaround from righteous conduct. The biblical spirit and nature of sin is called iniquity. It does not matter that you sinned at any time; it only matters that your heart remains loyal to the ways of sinners (iniquity). Do not therefore keep thinking about the things you did in the past but which you cannot now do.
Righteousness therefore has to do with the commitment to give and to forgive. Giving (showing) forgiveness in a sense also makes this more pointedly at a single word. All thinking creation called humanity is molded and remolded around these two headlines. To love is to give and to give is to love. It does not matter whether you are watching a movie or playing with your friends or at your jobsite. Your spirit is being formatted into a love machinery or often as is the case with many, turned into a darkness niche and dominion of death. A soul that cannot give and forgive ministers only death (separation from God).
CHRISTIANS SHOULD WORRY NOT ABOUT SOLVING SIN BUT ABOUT ENDING INIQUITY
If you are a child of God, there is a clear thing that should matter to you 1) either you worry daily how to stop your current life of sin and turn on a new leaf OR 2) You are aware that your former life of sin has been completely subdued or annihilated and that you have overcome sin.
If you have not been concatenated through these two stages, then you definitely are still into a life of sin and iniquity rules your life.
No matter how much you fight and struggle in this state, your end is destruction. God is not concerned that we struggle, suffer and lament in order to become righteous. Rather he imparts into our spirits, the nature of righteousness. When I found out how easy it was to serve God in this way, I was more than surprised; I was shocked. Understanding this is very important.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORGIVENESS AND INIQUITY
Most of us have heard about the adage “better to teach someone to catch fish than to give them fish. In the same manner, better to remove someone’s iniquity than to forgive their sins. There is a big difference when the bible says a man’s sins are forgiven and when it says that a man’s iniquity is removed. When a man’s iniquity is removed, such a person is immunized against sin. The dominion and power of sin is completely destroyed. By forgiveness, the person will sin again and be liable to its wages (death) but the one that is immunized continues to repel the effects of sin by repelling it from its root.
Receiving ordinary forgiveness, healing, prosperity and deliverance in the earth are all classified under the shadow (pointer) gospels. All these things may still reappear in your life another time and haunt you.
HOW INIQUITY IS REMOVED:THE HOLY SPIRIT
For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.Psalms 25:11
The Holy Spirit is like computer software. When He is installed in your life, the power of sin is broken. Your likes and dislikes are changed forever and all you get to do is to speak your way to anything you desire in life. Psalms 53:4 tells us that people who dwell in iniquity are not smart, all they need to do is to call on God for help. Giving a man power against sin is a serious thing. It is not done by Jesus but by the father himself. This process is like challenging the father. You must prove your point that you have a place on his throne. Mimicking God by working righteousness (giving) is something He wants to be sure enough. You need consistent effort to convince him. This is my experience reflected in the father’s own nature to tarry long with us in this kind of request (Luke 18:7)
Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.Psalms 53:4
Rather than pray everyday asking God to forgive you, it is better to call on God to give you the Holy Spirit. With the Spirit of God in you, you are safe from a life of repeated sinning. This is a spiritual secret that many professors of religion still do not understand. They think the Holy Spirit is just another talking show in propaganda. They are wrong. The person that received the Holy Spirit in this fashion suddenly realizes that he/she is no longer addicted to the old life. It is freedom at last.
MAINTAINING THE FLOW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit in your life means you are free from sinning but on the condition (changed orientation to see things in life) that you appropriate a life of a forgiven person. A man whose iniquity is removed is like the lord. Such a person forgives everything and all the time.
Imagine how that our lord Jesus forgave those that nailed him to the cross even before they had a chance to repent of their sins. Even as we all noticed they were destined to die in their sins, the principle is simple. You still have to forgive them. Let their death not depend on you.
If you are not sure that they are repentant (for their own sake), wait for the Holy Spirit to speak to you. I say this because sometimes when you seem to forgive people too quick, they become worse-off and do more evil than they will have done if you kept on in rebuke for a while. True children of God manage their grudges quickly and move on. Rebuke them for their own sake and forgive them if they repent. A righteous man gives and forgives always.
In order to receive the gift of righteousness, your spirit is first of all tested to respond freely towards others in giving and forgiveness. Meekness is a criteria of a man’s spirit that helps him to reason out righteousness in this way.
You are a spirit being and you should dominate the things of spiritual importance before all other concerns. The Holy Spirit is the only reason you may one day have reason to celebrate with those that will win access into LIFE. There is something about your life that only God can do (direct) for you (PSALMS 119:5)
GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU PRAY TO BE SET FREE FROM INIQUITY
Say this reflection with me: “I observes the different strata and époques of my life in praise and worship. That is the me that will forever not be shaken. I do not see anything in the flesh. Lord I thank you, that I have grown this much”.
