1 John 5:16-17 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
Beloved telling you the truth, there’s a sin unto death.
1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
Yes, all unrighteousness is sin, but there’s a sin unto death. A sin unto death in the spirit. That after committing that sin immediately the spirit-man is put to death.
There are some wrongs we commit that might take some time to process its death certificate, but there’s a sin when committed, is issued a death certificate immediately.
It doesn’t have to wait till the person dies and appears at the judgement seat before it is sanctioned! No! It’s judgement starts immediately.
It is the sin against the body;- Fornication!
The boy/girl you’re sleeping with whom you’re not married to,
The other man/woman whom you have kept outside your home,
The secret sexual desire you’re nursing in your mind,
The pornography movie you hide to watch,
The acts/thoughts of illicit sexual masturbative behavior,
They’re all called fornication. The sin unto death! Why? Because there are three which beareth witness against you?
Because there are three that beareth witness in heaven; the spirit, the water, and the blood. Yes! They bear witness to the father, the word, and the spirit.
When you fornicate, you do so with your spirit-man within, the blood flowing through your veins and the water in your body.
That is why Jesus had to shed his blood, spill his water, and yield his spirit on and before the cross; so that he can redeem man from the curse of death(the law). These three represents the facets of mankind; The three images of God in which man was created.
You see why it is sin unto death, because when your spirit bear witness against you, who can support you?
A man can tell lies, steal, even kill another without his spirit agreeing with him simply because he was under possession and compulsion by another spirit to commit such acts.
So what the Bible is saying is that fornication is a deliberate act. Beware! Flee from it.
