We are shown all throughout the scriptures and early texts that YHWH has given us a choice between life and death, between good and evil. Even Jesus/Yehoshua came to tell us to take the narrow (constricted) path versus the broad way to destruction.
Has it ever crossed your mind that streets named "Broadway" are a reference to the path to destruction? Many cities have a Broadway street right through town. It's especially popular in Oklahoma and New York City. It never crossed my mind until watching the Antichrist For Dummies Playlist on YouTube.
You might be wondering why there is a "Y" there? In the Antichrist For Dummies Playlist on YouTube he also discusses why the letter 'Y' was in ApollYon. You can watch it for more information on that, but he talks about the letter 'Y' being a representation of the 2 paths. One side was thin, representing the narrow path, and one side was broad and strayed from the narrow path. I discussed that a bit more in my video: The Straight & Narrow Path Out of the Wilderness into the Promised Land.
One of the best passages concerning YHWH giving us two paths is found in Deuteronomy 30:
Deuteronomy 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of YHWH thy God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto YHWH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. 11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the WORD is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; 16 In that I command thee this day to love YHWH thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and YHWH thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. 17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; 18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. 19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: 20 That thou mayest love YHWH thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which YHWH sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
I discuss in my article, "Being Born-Again Requires a Womb" that the "word of God" is YHWH's Holy Spirit and is the Seed of God inside of us when we're born from above. It's all the same thing according to scripture. It's also what's personified as "wisdom" or "Lady Wisdom" in Proverbs.
Proverbs 3:19 YHWH, by wisdom,
hath founded the earth; by understanding hath He
established the heavens.
Psalm 33:6 By the word of YHWH were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the Spirit of His mouth. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. 2 The word was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by the word; and without the word was not any thing made that was made. 4 In the word was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
We see four different references to how YHWH created the heavens and the earth, and each time we see it was either by YHWH's wisdom, or YHWH's word or YHWH's Spirit. Note that the Word/Spirit was hovering over the water in Genesis 1:2 and the Word/Spirit is gathering waters in Psalm 33:7. We see, according to John 1 that nothing was made without the Word, which means that all OT verses are speaking of the Word when they talk about how things are created. It also says the "Word was God" which is a reference to the "Spirit of His mouth". The "Word" is everything YHWH is and comes from Him, and cannot be changed, because He cannot be changed. (You can see my video into why the bible is not the "Word of God" because it can be changed and has been changed over the years too.)
In Proverbs, we see, through poetry, that "wisdom" is personified into "Lady Wisdom" who we should court. All throughout Proverbs we're told court wisdom, don't court folly. You could change it up and say, "Court the Holy Spirit, don't court the AntiChrist spirit that leads to death." Proverbs is all about the two paths. You may enjoy the video about Kel from the Trinity Delusion website and channel concerning YHWH "acquiring" wisdom and also my video series on "God & His Wisdom".
The Holy Spirit of YHWH became flesh in Jesus/Yehoshua when he was baptized and the Spirit came down from heaven into him. The same happens with our flesh when we're baptized: we get the "seed of God" inside of us. I discuss this in depth in the God & His Wisdom playlist.
Essentially, "YHWH and His Wisdom" is the "us" in "Let US make man in OUR image" and the image is how Eve came out of Adam. Eve and Adam were one (Primal Adam), and Eve came out of Adam, like the Holy Spirit/Breath comes out of YHWH's mouth. God is Spirit (one Elohim). But the picture of Eve coming out of Adam represents how the Spirit of YHWH comes out of Him and that's how He talks to us, it's how He speaks. In my video, "How to Slay with the "Word of God" The Sword of YHWH's Holy Spirit" I discuss how the "word of YHWH" came to the prophets and that is how YHWH told them to say things.
The following is from "The Dead Sea Scrolls And the First Christians" by Robert Eisenman, the free copy is linked to on the Resources page. I also discussed these passages a bit in my video, "Eden's Trees Part VIII: YHWH sends the Holy Spirit & the Antichrist Spirit to people" If you use the free copy, this is taken from page 346 and on.
Community Rule Column III:13 For the Guide, in order to communicate and teach all the Sons of Light the history of all the Sons of Man, 14 according to all the kinds of their spirits, the signs concerning their works and their generations, and the Visitation of their punishments and 15 the Eras of their reward. From the God of Knowledge comes all that ever was and will be. Before ever they existed, He prepared their whole mentality. 16 And when they are permitted to come into being in accord with His Glorious design, they are to fulfill all their tasks without changing anything. In His hands 17 are the Judgements on all things and He provides them with all their wishes. He created Man [Enosh] to govern 18 the Earth, and placed in him two Spirits in which to walk until the Era of His Visitation. They are the Spirits of Truth and of Unrighteousness.
20 And in the hand of the Prince of Lights is the Government of the Sons of Righteousness [Zedek ] walking in the Ways of Light. And in (the hand of) the Angel 21 of Darkness is the whole Government of the Sons of Unrighteousness, and they walk in the Ways of Darkness. And because of the Angel of Darkness, 22 all the Sons of Righteousness [Zedek ] are led astray, and all their sins, their iniquities, their transgression, and the infractions of their works are under his Dominion 23 according to the Mysteries of God until the End (Time). And all their punishments and the periods of their sufferings are by the malevolence of his Dominion. 24 and all the spirits (in Islam, ‘ jinn ”) of his lot cause the Sons of Light to stumble.
But the God of Israel and the Angel of His Truth help all 25 the Sons of Light. And He created the Spirits of Light and of Darkness and upon them based all (His) works 26 (and on their W)ays, all (human) activity (was established . . .). God loved the former for all Column IV:1 the Eternal Ages and takes pleasure in all of its actions forever. But the latter’s Foundation He abominates, hating all its Ways unto Destruction. 2 And these are their Ways in the world: to illumine the heart of man that all the Ways of Righteousness and Truth may be made Straight before him, and instill in his heart the fear of the Judgements 3 of God, a Spirit of Meekness, long-suffering patience, abundant Mercy, Eternal Goodness, intelligence, understanding, Majestic Wisdom having Faith in all 4 the works of God and leaning on His abundant Grace [“Piety”]. (It is) a Spirit of Knowledge in every rational work, of Zeal for the Judgements of Righteousness, of thoughtful 5 Holiness with imperturbable steadfastness and abundant Grace and Glorious purity on all the Sons of Truth , detesting all the idols of pollution. (It is) modest behavior 6 wary of all and concealing the Truth concerning the Mysteries of Knowledge [“Gnosis”]. These are the Foundations [or “Secrets”] of the Spirit for the Sons of Truth of the world. And as for the Visitation [or “Reward” ] of all who walk in it, it is healing, 7 abundant peacefulness in long life, fruitful seed with all blessings forever, everlasting joy in Life Victorious, and a Crown of Glory 8 with majestic raiment in Eternal Light [cf. 1 Co 15:51—58].
9 But (the Ways of) the Spirit of Unrighteousness (are): greediness of soul, stumbling hands in the Service of Righteousness [cf. 2 Co 11:15], Wickedness and Lying, pride and proudness of heart, duplicitousness and Deceitfulness, cruelty, 10 abundant ill temper, impatience, much folly, and Zeal for lustfulness, works of Abomination in a Spirit of fornication and Ways of uncleanness in the service of pollution, 11 a Tongue full of blasphemies, blindness of eye and dullness of ear, stiffness of neck and hardness of heart in order to walk in all the Ways of Darkness and Evil inclination. And the Visitation [“Reward” ] 12 of all who walk in it will be immeasurable punishments [this is the same word used in the Habakkuk Pesher to describe what was done to “the Wicked Priest’s corpse ”] at the hands of all the Angels of Destruction, for Eternal (Age Long?) damnation by the burning Wrath of the God of Vengeance, Everlasting (Age Long?) torment and endless admonishment, 13 with shameful extinction in the Fire of the Netherworlds. And all the Eras of their Generations they shall spend in mournful weeping and bitter Evils in the Abysses of Darkness until 14 their annihilation without remnant or survivor.
15 In the (two Spirits) is the history of all the Sons of Man, and in their (two) kinds, all the Hosts inherit a share according to their Generations and walk in their Ways, and all the works 16 they do are in their (two) divisions. And a man shall be rewarded for all the Eternal Ages according to the division of all their works, whether lesser or greater. Because God has apportioned them equally until the Last 17 Times. And He has placed Eternal hatred between their divisions. Truth abominates the acts of Unrighteousness and Unrighteousness abominates all the Ways of Truth. Zeal for 18 division (infuses) all their Judgements, because they do not walk in unison.
God, in the Mysteries of His Intelligence and the Wisdom of His Glory, has put an End to all Unrighteous being and at the Time 19 of the Visitation, He will destroy it forever. Then Truth, which has wallowed [or “lain immersed”] in the ways of Wickedness during the Dominion of Unrighteousness 20 until the Time of the Appointed Judgement, will emerge Victorious in the world. Then God will refine with His Truth all the works of man and purify for Himself the Sons of Man, Perfecting all the Spirit of Unrighteousness within 21 his flesh, and by means of the Holy Spirit, purifying it from Evil actions.
He will pour upon him the Spirit of Truth like baptismal waters (washing him) of all the Abominations of Lying, and he shall be immersed in 22 the Spirit of Purification that (He may) cause the Upright to understand the Knowledge of the Most High and the Wisdom of the Sons of Heaven, to teach the Perfect of the Way, whom God has chosen as an Everlasting Covenant. 23 And all the Glory of Adam will be theirs [here, of course, the Ebionite/ Elkasaite/Sabaean “Primal Adam” ideology permeating all baptist groups in northern Syria and southern Iraq] and there will be no more Unrighteousness and all the works of Deceitfulness will be put to flight.
Until now the Spirits of Truth and Unrighteousness have struggled in the hearts of Man 24 and they have walked either in Wisdom or Unrighteousness. And according to a man’s inheritance in Truth and Righteousness, so will he hate Unrighteousness. And according to his inheritance of the lot of Unrighteousness, so he will behave wickedly through it 25 and abominate Truth. Because God has put (the two Spirits into the world) equally until the appointed End and the New Creation. He knows the actions of their works for all the Eras 26 (of Ti)me, and He has given them as an inheritance to all the Sons of Men to know Good (and Evil. He has apportioned the lots of all living beings according to his Spirit (on the Day of the) Visitation.
annihilationism, Eternal Torment, vs. Universalism
You can see how much the two ways or two spirits are mentioned in Community Rule from the Dead Sea Scrolls, but I want to touch on the idea of eternal damnation, eternal torture, or universalism. I added the parenthesis "(Age Long?)" above because often the words for an age "aion" get translated incorrectly into "forever". You can tell aion and eon are connected words just by saying them out loud, and though we know an eon doesn't last forever, people still think aion refers to forever simply because the translation books tell them it does. The Catholic Church took on the pagan beliefs of life in hellfire torment forever and put it into the text. We know it's translated incorrectly many times in the bible (such as when an aion is added to an aion in Rev 20:10, which makes no sense if it means "forever" as you can't add eternity to eternity), so it's not hard to believe it would be incorrectly translated here.
Now you might say, "But you're ignoring the context, what about when it says..."
"..all who walk in it will be immeasurable punishments [this is the same word used in the Habakkuk Pesher to describe what was done to “the Wicked Priest’s corpse ”] at the hands of all the Angels of Destruction, for Eternal (Age Long?) damnation by the burning Wrath of the God of Vengeance, Everlasting (Age Long?) torment and endless admonishment, 13 with shameful extinction in the Fire of the Netherworlds. And all the Eras of their Generations they shall spend in mournful weeping and bitter Evils in the Abysses of Darkness until 14 their annihilation without remnant or survivor..."
You can see Kris in Love's video, "The Greatest Message You Will Ever Hear - The Salvation of All" for an in-depth study on the fire in the bible being about purification. The only way to get cleansed is to go through fire. But from this quote we see that the "wicked" will not survive, just like the dross does not survive when we refine gold tried in the fire. There will be no more wicked, when they die to their sin. Because we see the wicked will not survive we know they did not believe in eternal torment. But did they believe in eternal death?
"...God, in the Mysteries of His Intelligence and the Wisdom of His Glory, has put an End to all Unrighteous being and at the Time 19 of the Visitation, He will destroy it forever. Then Truth, which has wallowed [or “lain immersed”] in the ways of Wickedness during the Dominion of Unrighteousness 20 until the Time of the Appointed Judgement, will emerge Victorious in the world. Then God will refine with His Truth all the works of man and purify for Himself the Sons of Man, Perfecting all the Spirit of Unrighteousness within 21 his flesh, and by means of the Holy Spirit, purifying it from Evil actions. He will pour upon him the Spirit of Truth like baptismal waters (washing him) of all the Abominations of Lying, and he shall be immersed in 22 the Spirit of Purification that (He may) cause the Upright to understand the Knowledge of the Most High and the Wisdom of the Sons of Heaven, to teach the Perfect of the Way..."
It specifically says the sons of Righteousness have been led astray, but in the end times YHWH will refine them with His Truth, so they will teach the Perfect of the Way. Who are they teaching? We see the sons of Righteousness had sinned because they were led astray, so, today, when you see people around you who are led astray they may be "sons of Righteousness" who will be "saved" when YHWH refines them (through fire). But who are they teaching?
Remember from my video series, "Eden's Trees" that God's seed is the Holy Spirit inside of us, that seed grows in us through the anointing (Messiah). He's the vine, we're the branches, so when you see the branches springing forth in the last days, that's us, the teachers of "the Perfect of the Way":
Ezekiel 36:6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord YHWH; "Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen: 7 Therefore thus saith the Lord YHWH; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. 8 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. 9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: 10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded: 11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am YHWH"....
16 Moreover the word of YHWH came unto me, saying, 17 "Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman. 18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it: 19 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. 20 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of YHWH, and are gone forth out of his land.
21 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. 22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel," Thus saith the Lord YHWH, "I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. 23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YHWH, saith the Lord YHWH, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. 25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them."
We're called the Priests and Kings. Who are priests to, who are we kings of? The heathen are to be amazed and come to the truth through those teachers. That's what Community Rule about.
Matthew 5:19 So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Israel (who profaned YHWH's Holy name), those who teach to break the commandments and Pharisees are making it into the kingdom of heaven, eventually anyway. YHWH is going to amaze the world with His purification process. There will be no more "wicked" left.
Becoming Anointed / Christs
So, according to Community Rule there are two spirits inside men. I think it's best described as the Holy Spirit that is Holy (Set-apart from the world) versus the AntiChrist Spirit (Christ=Messiah=Anointing). God anointed us with the Holy Spirit at our baptism, as He anointed Jesus/Yehoshua with the Holy Spirit at his (Acts 10:38). [To be Messiah/Christ means you are not YHWH, because YHWH has to anoint all Christs/Messiahs, by definition of the name and there were many anointed/Christs/Messiahs in the OT too.]
But until we have been born of God, we were "born of a woman" which I also discuss a bit more in my God & His Wisdom series. In it I discuss the Gospel of Thomas line about how women have to become men.
Jesus said, "I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven." (Gospel of Thomas, 114)
I believe it is a reference to gaining the Holy Spirit (Wisdom) and becoming one, like the primal Adam, which as you can see goes along with the Community Rule too. Eve came out of Adam like wisdom leaving mankind. The two have to become one body, like the "bride of Christ" becoming one body of Christ. They have to become one, like the Primal Adam, and in order to do that you have to be "born from above" as I discussed in the article: "Believers in Messiah Have Descended From Heaven." When you're "born from above" you are "anointed" and thus become Christ, one body of Christ, because you've been anointed with the Holy Spirit.
So I believe until we're born of God, we're "born of a woman" and thus have the two spirits warring against each other, but when you are born from God, and have His seed in you, the war inside will be over.
1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in Him (God) sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
The devil and serpent/dragon are commonly used interchangeably. I've discussed why I don't believe in one angel named the "devil" or "Satan" in my video, "Scriptural References to Satan, the Devil, and Lucifer," but it is used to refer to "the enemy" and I think this is true "serpent seed." Since the "seed of God" is what keeps us Holy, the "devil/serpent seed" is that which keeps you unholy. It's not physical, but spiritual.
So, when we're born of a woman, the AntiChrist spirit is warring with the Holy Spirit against each other inside of us, but when we're born from above, after truly repenting, we're led to see how bad the sin was for us, and will not want to commit anymore. We get chastised and get pruned repeatedly to bring forth much fruit for God. This warring of children (AntiChrist vs. Holy Spirit seed) inside of a woman may be referenced in the story of Esau vs. Jacob warring in Rebekah's womb.
The Didache & the Two Ways
Please see the Didache in full for more of the way of life as this has been shortened.
"...The Two Ways and the First Commandment. There are two ways, one of life and one of death, but a great difference between the two ways. The way of life, then, is this: First, you shall love God who made you; second, love your neighbor as yourself, and do not do to another what you would not want done to you. And of these sayings the teaching is this: Bless those who curse you, and pray for your enemies, and fast for those who persecute you. For what reward is there for loving those who love you? Do not the Gentiles do the same? But love those who hate you, and you shall not have an enemy. Abstain from fleshly and worldly lusts....You shall hate all hypocrisy and everything which is not pleasing to the Lord. Do not in any way forsake the commandments of the Lord; but keep what you have received, neither adding thereto nor taking away therefrom. In the church you shall acknowledge your transgressions, and you shall not come near for your prayer with an evil conscience. This is the way of life. The Way of Death. And the way of death is this: First of all it is evil and accursed: murders, adultery, lust, fornication, thefts, idolatries, magic arts, witchcrafts, rape, false witness, hypocrisy, double-heartedness, deceit, haughtiness, depravity, self-will, greediness, filthy talking, jealousy, over-confidence, loftiness, boastfulness; persecutors of the good, hating truth, loving a lie, not knowing a reward for righteousness, not cleaving to good nor to righteous judgment, watching not for that which is good, but for that which is evil; from whom meekness and endurance are far, loving vanities, pursuing revenge, not pitying a poor man, not laboring for the afflicted, not knowing Him Who made them, murderers of children, destroyers of the handiwork of God, turning away from him who is in want, afflicting him who is distressed, advocates of the rich, lawless judges of the poor, utter sinners. Be delivered, children, from all these."
The Narrow Path
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Once again we see those who follow the narrow way are like a "wise man", that is a reference to the Primal Adam, a man connected to wisdom (the Holy Spirit). Proverbs is all about courting wisdom, not courting folly. The foolish man is a man without the Holy Spirit and thus no wisdom.
Proverbs 4:26 Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. 27 Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.
Proverbs 1:15 My son, do not walk in the way with them. Keep your feet from their path, 16 For their feet run to evil and they hasten to shed blood.
Deuteronomy 5:31 But as for you, stand here by Me, that I may speak to you all the commandments and the statutes and the judgments which you shall teach them, that they may observe them in the land which I give them to possess.' 32 "So you shall observe to do just as YHWH your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 "You shall walk in all the way which YHWH your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess.
Deuteronomy 28:13"YHWH will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of YHWH your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, 14 and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
If you keep YHWH's commandments, and don't turn aside from them, you will be blessed. Those who don't will be cursed.
YHWH's Spirit is a double-edged sword. We can let Him convict us of our sin, or turn away and harden our hearts. The reason few find this path is because few want to drop their sins. They like to sin too much. We're already under condemnation and judgement.
John 3:17 For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
The "world" (people) were condemned already before Jesus ever went to them, because they had been slaves to sin. Jesus came to free those who wanted to be free and showed them how to stop sinning. (You can see my video: "The Greatest Trick the Devil Ever Pulled vs. the True Gospel of Christ" for more on the true Gospel) But those who didn't want to stop sinning, were "of their father the devil" following the AntiChrist Spirit to destruction, they were condemned already, so he couldn't save them, because there was a big gulf fixed between him and them. He was from above and they were from below so they could not understand what he was saying (John 8). You can see my video "Lazarus and the Rich Man is a PARABLE about us being risen from the dead at our baptism" for more on that gulf fixed between us (the body of Christ) and the world. Until they want to get rid of their sin, they will stay in torments.
There are those who are dead in their sin right now, in torments, and until they get tired of holding on to that sin, they will stay in torments. But anyone who believes on someone who has "risen from the dead" and been born from above will be saved. For the body of Christ teaches the commandments that lead to life.
