Go And Sin No More

Jesus Christ was "the LORD God" Who delivered the people of the Exodus (see Christ The Creator and 'Before Abraham Was, I AM'). The Messiah gave humanity The Ten Commandments. The Messiah put to death those Who disobeyed Him, back then, just as He will do in the future time of Judgment (see Could Christ Return Tonight?).

"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea [see also Why Through The Sea?]; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness [see A Journey Without A Destination]. 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents." (1 Corinthians 10:1-9 KJV)

"Natural brute beasts ... Having eyes full of adultery ... They which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God"

One of the most well-known incidents recorded in Bible History is that of a woman who was caught in the act of adultery - and who was about to be stoned to death. Jesus rescued the woman from death simply by letting her accusers know that He knew the Truth about them - and perhaps their own involvement with that very same woman.

The Holy Scriptures

"8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery [see Thou shalt not commit adultery to understand how the Commandment applies ultimately to spiritual adultery]; and when they had set her in the midst, 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone [see Stoning] at her. 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

8:11 She said, No man, Lord.

And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." (John 8:1-11 KJV)

The Savior rescued the woman, not so that she could continue her life of sin, but so that she would have her opportunity to repent - and to truly live a life according to God's Word. She was given her awareness, and her warning. She was rescued from hypocritical human "judges" - but there will be no rescue from the Messiah's Judgment, if she thereafter refused to repent and obey God's Word.

The apostle Paul warned that unrepentant, arrogantly-immoral people will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

"5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." (Galatians 5:19-25 KJV)

The apostle Peter explained how those who flagrantly commit adultery often flagrantly commit adultery with God's Word as well. They will, while deaf to all others who tell them the truth, search until they find some erroneous "teacher" who tells them what they want to hear, thereby both "sporting themselves with their own deceivings."

"2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

2:17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever." (2 Peter 2:12-17 KJV)
