Temptation and the two types of Christian

Two types of Christian.

1. Justified
2. Sanctified

  • A just man lives with power to do right…but the Old Man still tries to rule.
  • A sanctified man lives with power to do right…but the Old Man is crucified and the (body of sin is destroyed).

“All Christians are justified but not all Christians are sanctified. Sanctification deals with the Old Man that is not dealt with in Justification.”

As a gauge to distinguish the difference between the two types of Christians – let us review, ” The effects of temptation.”

Temptation comes upon a just man where the Old Man still tries to rule. The Old man breaks weak and yields to the temptation. The deceitfulness of sin brings forth death and then condemnation occurs.

In the case of a sanctified man lets review temptation. Temptation arises but the Old Man is gone. This believer does not yield to the temptation as the moral standard and power of God prevails. Victorious living and overcoming is the picture.  Temptation is not yielded to. Christ gets the glory!

The Grace of God forgives sin. The Grace of God pardons the sinner.  The Grace of God crucifies the Old Man. The Grace of God sanctifies the heart from the Old Adam. The Grace of God “destroys” the root of sin.

Temptation doesn’t have the same effect on a sanctified man…as it does a justified man.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    At the turn of the century “Azuza Street” taught this form of doctrine. Revival broke out. William Seymour (the leader of Azuza Street) taught Entire Sanctification that removed the Adamic life. Sanctification wasn’t just about speaking in tongues. Sanctification was also about getting rid of the Old Adam. Sanctification led to prayer and the passion for winning souls. Every place in history where Revival broke out, “Sanctification was being taught”. It’s not unusual that some do not accept the doctrine of Sanctification. Sanctification obligates the believer and makes them ever accountable to God. The fact is some do not want every minute and every day accountability to God for obedience and right-standing. I have taught sanctification for 26 years. No regrets and many blessings.
