WRONG TERMS

Topic : WRONG TERMS USED BY CHRISTIANS

Preacher : Sybil "Sweetmama" Woodall

Many times Christians say and think the wrong way with some phrases. Here is a list of them:
1) Both saint and sinner: Many Christians say, "I am a sinner saved by grace, or I am a lowly
Sinner." You were born a sinner. But when you were born again, you became a saint. When you are born again, you are dead to sin.
Now and Not Yet: We are now in Christ. But we have not yet received our glorious body that has been promised to us and that we will have when Jesus returns.
Spirit-Filled:
Romans 8:9-10;
9. But ye are not bin the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his."
10. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness."
You are Spirit-Filled if you are a Christian and born again.
4) Lordship: Many may say, Jesus is our Savior but is He our Lord?" Savior and Lord are the same. You can't have a Savior and not have the Lord.
5) Backslidden: When you are a Christian, you don't climb up to God, because God doesn't let you go. We don't climb up to Him, He climbs down to us.
6) Obedience: It is trusting God. Obedience and trusting are the fruit of our relationship with Jesus. It is the outward manifestation of your spirit with Christ. It is faith. Whatever is not of faith is sin. Jesus obedience becomes ours. It is because of Jesus obedience that we are who we are. Without His obedience we are nothing.(2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
Brokenness: Saying things like God will break you down to get you where you should be. This is wrong thinking. God will not do this because He is a loving God.
Surrender: Letting go of problems and worries to God is correct. But saying it as God is trying to conquer you is wrong.
Under the Blood:
Joshua 1:8; "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Our sins are not under the blood but are taken away.
Get Closer to God: If you are born again, you are one spirit with God. You can't get any closer than that. Be careful to do everything that is written in the Bible. It isn't what you do, it's what you think. Keep God's instruction, meditate on it. God's instruction is easy to speak, but it takes more effort to meditate on it. Meditation involves the heart. When you meditate, do you feel the Word; are you edified and exhorted?
Out of Fellowship: (1 John 7:7-10). It doesn't say we break fellowship.
Generational Curses: You must say you are blessed with every spiritual blessing. You are free in Christ. There is no curse.
All of God And None Of Me: He must increase and I must decrease. If it's none of me, why did God create me? It is all of God and all of me. God is our High Priest. We are kings and priests, but God is the High Priest.
