Accusing Within The Body


"For  as many of you as have been baptized into Christ  have put  on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is  neither bond  nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are  all "one" in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:27,28) "For the Scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox  that treadeth  out  the  corn. And, The labourer [is]  worthy  of  his reward. Against an elder receive not an accusation,  but  before two or three witnesses." (1 Timothy 5:18,19)

"One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity,   or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth  of two  witnesses,  or at the mouth of three  witnesses,  shall the matter be established." (Deuteronomy 19:15) "Accuse  not a servant unto his master, lest he curse  thee, and thou be found guilty." (Proverbs 30:10) "And  I  heard a loud voice saying in heaven,  Now  is  come salvation,  and  strength, and the kingdom of our  God, and  the power  of  his Christ: for the accuser of our  brethren  is  cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."  (Revelation 12:10)


Jesus Is The True Light.

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge,  my judgment  is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father  that sent  me. It is also written in your law, that the  testimony  of two  men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself,  and  the Father  that sent me beareth witness of me.

"Then said  they  unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my  Father:  if ye had known me, ye should have known  my  Father also.  These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he  taught  in the  temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour  was  not yet  come. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way,  and  ye shall seek  me,  and shall die in your sins: whither  I  go,  ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith,  Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto  them,  Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not
of  this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall  die  in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [He], ye shall die  in your sins." (John 8:12-24) It is a matter of believing.

"Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If  ye continue  in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed;  And  ye shall  know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."  (John 8:31,32) What does it mean to be free? "For  sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye  are  not under  the law, but under grace." (Romans 6:14) "Being then  made
free  from sin, ye became the servants of  righteousness  (Christ Jesus, not our own righteousness)." (Romans 6:18) "But now  being made  free  from sin, and become servants to God,  ye  have  yourfruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life." (Romans 6:22)
"For  the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made  me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8:2)

"But  whoso  looketh into the perfect law  of  liberty,  and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." (James 1:25) Being  a doer is: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:  and [be]  ready always to [give] an answer to every man  that  asketh you  a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and  fear: Having  a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of  you, as  of  evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely  accuse  your good conversation in Christ." (1 Peter 3:15,16)
