Enduring Until the End! – The Struggle of the Sinful Nature

[tweetmeme source= ‘OmarLoves’ only_single=false]

So my name is Omar. I’m 25 years old and am new to this blog thing. Everyone has been requesting that I start a blog because of all the messages I post on facebook and such so here I go. This should be fun, we will laugh, we will learn (from scripture only), we will have a good time together.  Lets stay loving here and not be rude and disrespectful.

Exod 13:3 “And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt (represents the old sinful life), out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out of this place.”

A little information about myself

I have had a interesting 25 years thus far; from dealing with things like MOLESTATION, and practicing HOMOSEXUALITY, the influences of this world as well, and then a CANCERscare to help me make the decision that God’s ways are way better than man’s ways and ideas.

(THIS IS NOT A HATEFUL MESSAGE. I TRULY LOVE EVERYONE, GAY, ST8, MURDERER, RAPIST, ETC, I REALLY DO)

What I would want people to get from this blog would be to realize that one does not have to accept  sin as their “lover” especially sexual types of sin. Regardless of what society says. Weather it be drunkards, sex, murderous intentions or other sins. You are not defined by the sin you feel in you, if you don’t want to practice homosexuality or any other sin, I am here to tell you through God’s word that you really don’t have to; ITS NOT GONNA BE A MAGICAL EFFECT THAT MAKES EVERYTHING YOU FEEL STOP (something the new age church teaches…This true deliverance thing…that it all disappears)… FIGHT YOURSELF (Struggle) AS GOD changes the very nature of your heart from sin  (Romans 7) (Though the world says be proud of who you are, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else)

I’m not going to be the person that let’s my struggles with sin define who I am. I am a MAN.. I will be a MAN… and I love being a MAN … there will be no contradictions of me being a MAN…YOU CANNOT BE PRACTICING HOMOSEXUALITY AND ENTER HIS KINGDOM!!! Sorry, I know there is a new age church teaching that says God wants you to be happy and if that means being gay  that’s fine with Him. Feel that as you may but we fail to accept that our hearts are deceitful beyond cure. (Jeremiah 17:9) We humans are going to want to accept everything we can that makes us happy, funny thing is, that is the same belief as a Satanist. They believe that you should do everything in your power to worship and please yourself …. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”) Look I know it is extremely hard; (Peter said, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”) but that’s the choice, You either choose your sinful nature on this earth or you choose God for a place in the Kingdom, AMEN. The only ones that will truly be saved are those that endure till the end.(Matthew 24:12 “but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”.)

Many people think it is up for debate, weather homosexuality is God’s desire for us because we develop friendships with practicing homosexuals. N would hate to think about someone we love in jeopardy of going to hell. NO SIN CAN ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD, NONE. We cannot cancel out the word of God because of how we feel about some people.

Also this is not only about homosexuality. It about sin, that includes lying, homosexuality, gossiping, masturbation, porn, and anything else that is not God’s way for us. I did not only practice homosexuality but I practiced these things and I often find out more sin in my life that must separate from me.

The word of God is the FINAL WORD! Opinions just don’t matter. I’m willing to listen to them and I have my own opinion as well but I acknowledge that it doesn’t hold any weight.

This is MY story. I stopped practicing homosexuality when I was 18. I am 25 now and I do not practice it and hope to never practice it again. The fight continues as Paul described (with sin)

Struggling With Sin

Romans 7 7What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” 8But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead. 9Once I was alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. 10I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death.

11For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. 12So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good. 13Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! But in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it produced death in me through what was good, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful.

14We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

This is how a Christian is to treat sin in their lives… not become one with it but to accept it as being wrong and to fight it even if it is stronger than us. God’s law is right and our ways are wrong.

Remember what Jesus said, “He who endures (fights, continue in faith) until the end shall be saved”. (Matt 24:13) What is this end?  It’s when we leave this earth or Jesus comes back.

That’s just a little summary. It is not a hate message. We are NOT to hate people who practice different kinds of sin. We are not to call them unloving names.

Titus 3:2 says, ” to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men”. If your gay do not feel afraid to comment on this blog, if you’re a liar do not feel afraid to comment on this blog. If someone is rude to you I will delete the comment. I respect and love everyone. I am able to acknowledge what is sin through God’s word but still love you. Love and not a message of HATE.

Thank God for his love and forgiveness.

KEEP THE FIGHT OF FAITH ENDURE ENDURE ENDURE.

LOVE !!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!!

    The one thing I hope everyone remembers who reads this, is that our God is a merciful God. If you know you have sinned and you ask for forgiveness, our God will forgive you. But along with that, you MUST forgive yourself and release the burden of carrying that sin on your shoulder. Continuing to relive your past only makes the present clouded and difficult. Remeber that today is called the present because it us a present from God. Enjoy it, live it, and be a fisherman if man for our awesome God. Omar, I commend you for turning your life around and getting on the straight path with God. I look forward to your future blogs. Stay strong in your faith and continue to grow with our God. amen!!

  • Omar Carter

    Amen, There will be more comments about forgiveness.

    Our testimony of what God did in bringing us out of sin and into a new life with Him doesn’t mean we are carrying our past sins on our shoulders.
    God wanted the Israelites to remember when He brought them out of “sin and bondage” by keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread every year fovever…
    Exod 13:3 “And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out of this [place].”
    Exod 13:8 “And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, ‘[This is done] because of what the LORD did for me when I came up from Egypt.”
    vs 9 It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the LORD’s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the LORD has brought you out of Egypt.
    vs 10 You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
    REMEMBERING what God has done in our life is essential in building our FAITH!!!

    Omar,

    The honesty, truthfulness — the REALITY of this blog is going to lead MANY to their freedom! And that is what it is all about — getting out of “the box”/”THE FANTASY”and living in the REALITY of the freedom of Jesus Christ. Our lives are enriched with your testimony and we are so very blessed to call you friend! Blog on my brother! 😉

    “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.” (Ephesians 6:7-8)

    “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8: 1-2)

    “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.” (Romans 6:22)

    To God be all glory, honor and praise!
    ~Shalom~

  • Quinto Thomas

    Omar I truly appreciate your boldness and honesty. I yet struggle with homosexuality. I undeniably believe Gods Word. It’s one of the strongest battles of my life. I’ve dealt with same sex desires since I was 9. I’m now 38. I was never molested, handled wrongfully, it came natural for me to desire men. I have asked God numerous times to take it away. And yet it remains. It may be that it will be a thorn in my flesh until God calls me out. But I also know if that be he will give me the grace to endure through and it not have power over me but I have power over it! Please continue to pray for me. I truly thank God for you overcoming same sex desires. What a powerful testimony indeed
