WHY THOSE WHO ARE BORN OF GOD CAN NOT SIN- 1John3:4-9

In today’s study we are going to take a detailed look at sin. And specifically how we define sin. And the sin that separates men from God. And that which blinds us to the righteousness unto eternal life. As a person who sees the problems with the false original sin and sin nature doctrine for the pagan gnosticism that it is. And it’s adverse affects on so many who call themselves christian. It is impossible for me to read the scriptures without constantly seeing the distinction between what the scriptures plainly say, and what these have been taught through that false doctrine to believe. A distinction that can be seen being made everywhere from Genesis to Revelation. It’s adverse affects can be seen in all of the doctrines in the Bible. But, none moreso than when looking at the subject…

HOW IS THE LAW SPIRITUAL? AND WHO IS CARNAL, SOLD UNDER SIN? FIND OUT IN THIS STUDY OF ROM.7:14

By Edward O’Hara, Many people have difficulty understanding how the law is both spiritual and temporal. In this study we will see why this is true. And how this spiritual law is a ministration of death and condemnation. A “spiritual law” that can never give life. Rom.7- 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. To understand this passage correctly is to recognize first and foremost the context in which it is written. This is discovered by reading what was said before, that led up to this. We see this when we read Paul using “For” at the beginning of each of these statements. For having the meaning…

FOR JOSHUA TO LEAD MOSES HAD TO GO AWAY… JUST LIKE JESUS- Deut.3 and John16

By Edward O’Hara, Today we will be thinking a little outside the box. Just a little. By looking at the “examples” for which God wrote about the things that happened in Old Testament times. Seeing some parallels between Moses and Jesus. And between Joshua and the Holy Spirit. Just reading through Deuteronomy and saw where God told Moses he was not going to go into the promised land. It started me thinking about why God did this. And that if you have been told that this was because Moses struck the rock that was to bring forth water for Israel. Instead of speaking to it as God had instructed him to do. Then I want to show you that there is more to this story than you have been told. Much more. In Deut.3 Moses said, “23 And I besought…

LIFE OR DEATH AS JESUS REVEALED THEM IN THE 2 RESURRECTIONS- JOHN5:28,29

By Edward O’Hara It’s hard to put into words just how much God loves us. The Holy Spirit tells us through the apostle John that the greatest love is when a man lays down his life for his friend. Citing Jesus’ example when He gave His life willingly for every man. As Dan.9:26 tells us He would. And when He did this He knew He had to because it was the only way He could conquer death. Even though the thought of what He would suffer was so excruciating that He sought the Father asking if there was any other way to do what must be done to save mankind apart from His having to suffer and die. But, knowing the Father’s will Jesus submitted to Him for the sake of mankind. God is so willing that everyone who has…

WHY THIS MUST BE DONE WHEN YOUR FOOT, EYE, OR HAND OFFENDS YOU- Mt.18- Pt.2

By Edward O’Hara, Taking up where we left off last time. I will now continue to show Biblically how a man that is the hand, eye, or foot that causes offense that Jesus spoke of in Mt.18. Must be cut off so that he can not cause others to be cast also into the fire with him. The clue we have that shows us it is a man through whom the offense comes is from Mt.18:7 that says, “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” So these body parts that Jesus says to cut oof” are people who offend with false teachings that lead to hell. Making sure that we understand that this is not talking about someone who is an actual…

Edward O’Hara: WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING; QUESTIONS WE MUST ASK- 2Cor.5:19

By Edward O’Hara, The idea of questioning long held political and religious beliefs is happening now more than at any other time in history. The question is, is this a good method to use for finding truth? My answer to that is, what other way is there? Not in a hateful or rebellious way. But, in an inquiring way. Because we have to question things to know whether they are true. Especially the things we may have come to believe are true before we came to trust in Jesus. This is why Paul says we need to renew our minds in Rom.12:1,2. And in this endeavor I have found the Bible to be 100% accurate 100% of the time. In all areas of study, everything the Bible says has so far for me proven itself to be absolutely and unequivocally…

THE GARDEN- ISOLATION? OR OPPORTUNITY?

By Edward O’HARA When God placed Adam in the garden did He tell him he was to live only in the garden? Were there boundaries for the garden that he was not to pass? Is there any place in the Bible that says Adam had to stay in the garden when God placed him there? Or was Adam able to go anywhere in the earth he chose? Is there in the Genesis account, or anywhere else in the Bible, anything that tells us that Adam had access to the whole earth? The answer is yes. Because in Gen.1:29 God told Adam and Eve they were to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. He said, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl…

WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING; ANOTHER QUESTION, NAUGHTY VS NICE? OR NATURAL VS SPIRITUAL?- Gen.2:7

By Edward  O’Hara In this message I am going to give one more example of the many questions I asked of the scriptures that led me to the truth about why we need Jesus and what the atonement was really for. It’s so important that we know it’s ok to ask questions. Whether it be of the overseer or bishop. Of Jesus. Or of anyone regarding the things of God. These questions will help us make informed decisions about the truths we are learning. After which we will look at the main progenitor of the false doctrine of original sin that all churches teach. And why even according to his own disciple’s interpretation of the scriptures he could not even have been a believer. As I continued seeking the Lord about the things that just didn’t add up Biblically between…

EDWARD O’HARA, THE GARDEN Pt2

As we saw in pt1 of this message the mortality that Adam was not yet aware of would only be realized by him after he could no longer eat from the tree of life. We see this from reading in Gen.3:22 where God said, “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” This truth…

BEING ABOUT THE FATHER’S BUSINESS DOING THE “GREATER WORKS”- LUKE7:28

By Edward O’Hara , The Father’s business has changed in some dramatic ways since the days of Jesus. And thank God it has! Because if it hadn’t then all the rest of the nations, commonly referred to as gentiles in the scriptures, would not have the salvation that comes through faith in Jesus offered to them. Jesus came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. The preaching of the apostles was to the Jew first then also to the Greek. When He ascended Jesus gave the apostles the commission of preaching the gospel to both Jew and Gentile. So even John who baptized Jesus, though he was the greatest among the prophets, ministered only to Jews. And did you know that even though John was considered by Jesus to be the greatest among Old Testament prophets. That all…
