    He shall save His people from their sins

    The angel who appeared to Joseph said concerning Jesus, "...thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins," Matthew 1:21. Jesus never made a mistake of converting a soul and leaving it under the power of sin. Those who are converted cease to wilfully sin, ie to break God's commandments since sin is defined as "the transgression of the law" - 1John 3:4. The children of God are not saved by their obedience but rather the obedience is the fruit of their new life. Our fruits are our words and deeds.

    He justifies them from the debt of sin, and that is a huge motivation to shed the interests of sin, but people will still sin.

    This passage and its quote show that Matthew knew early that the mission of Christ was this one Gospel, and that while recollecting what to write, he knew that all of them knew the death of Christ was going to do just that early in the ministry. It is set ups like this which bear out the truly human dilemma which we now call 'denial'. We find it in the middle of the synoptics: after confessing that Jesus is the Christ, Peter tries to 'control' Christ and tell him he can't die. Even though he knew all along, unlike the delusion of 2P2P which wants there to be another gospel in (at least) the first half of the synoptics (it doesn't work out in John at all).

    Whose His People that He shall save from their sins ?

    More distinctly, what sins was this Jesus going to save said people from, that He was to be called JESUS; to begin with?

Satan's argument is precisely this, that it is impossible to obey God's commandments and that is why man fell. Since the fall of Adam to our time God has ever had His witnesses on the earth who obey Him and thus prove that, "... the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good," Romans 7:12.

    His people are those who exercise repentance toward God and faith toward Jesus. Not even the infinite power of God can save sinners who reject the sacrifice of His Son.

    In the context of Matthew, "His people" is Israel.

    And another apostle - our apostle - said the believer is dead to the Law.

    Is it possible that either John's use of "commandments" means something other than the Law . . . or . . . it does mean the Law but he was speaking to an audience that would be specially enabled to abide in the Law, while Paul was talking to another group that was dead to it?

    [most will be very surprised]


    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?
