Based on scriptures, I have said it and will keep saying it again: I was not saved by observing the law (fornicating no more, committing adultery no more, stealing no more, killing no more etc) but I was saved by faith in Christ Jesus. (Grace ) And my sins were wiped off; my past sins, present and future, as long as I choose to remain under Grace, where the power of sin over my life has been broken and subdued eternally- that means when perhaps I fall to sin, (Pastor Vasile's son is still his son even if he is locked up in jail) the effect of sins cannot be felt over me, because of the covering of Grace- the New covenant of life which I am in with God, as t is entirely impossible for anyone whether born again or not to claim he or she has no sin in him: where sin before God, is sin, even as much as those things done out of faith. The power of death or judgment is sin, the power of sin is the law, but were there is no law, there is no transgression, and where there is no transgression, there is no sin, and where there is no sin, there is no judgment or death. Therefore, I AM NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE, SAVED BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, WHERE I STAND AS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS, HELPED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO LIVE THE CHRIST LIFE, YET BATH WITH MERCY AND GRACE WHEN I FALTER.....

More suitable for today's time if an armed gunman is standing before me and my initial reaction is panic I have sinned...but that does not mean that I did not have fear. However it's a good man is standing before me and I have fear but I remain calm in inside of myself I pray and and trust in the Lord I have not sinned. We have to understand that as humans we will have any emotion, but it is what we do with the emotion that will determine the sin.

Again I disagree.. The Bible encourages us to fear not, but where does it call fear a 'Sin'? If that is the case then anger is a sin... And we know very clearly the Bible says be angry but sin not. I respect that you may be well educated, however I disagree that fear is a sin. The Bible says to bring everything to God and so if I have a fear my initial reaction is to bring it to God. There for having the fear is not the sin, but it is a reaction that determines whether or not you have sin. If I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I worry I have sinned. But if I don't have enough money to pay my bills and I pray and trust God I have not sinned.

I don't agree that fear is a sin.. I do believe that the action you perform once you feel the emotion of fear could be sinful but to fear is not sin. Just like to have anger is not a sin for the Bible declares to be angry but sin not. So if I have a fear it's what follows that emotion that determines the sin. If It's raining and I have limited visibility that will create fear, and if I panic I have sinned, but if I am calm and pray I have not sinned even though I did fear.

Ask the priest
Confession of sins

Why is Jesus called Emmanuel?

30 apr 2011 | ora 20.08 Doctrine | Priest Vasile Filat

Question:

I was reading the Gospel of Matthew again at Christmas and I wanted to ask why "Emmanuel" is mentioned in the prophecy as a name for Jesus?

The text of the Gospel of Matthew

says this …

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has beenconceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for Hewill save His people from their sins." Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US." (Matthew 1:18-23)(NASB)

The importance and meaning of names

Names in the Bible and in earlier times had a greater significance than they do nowadays. Nowadays, people choose names for their children by the way a certain name sounds, or in honor of their parents, or according to the names of books or movies characters. It was not so before. The name reflected a desire of parents, a fact, an event from their lives or a quality that they wanted for their child, etc. Each name has a meaning. For example, my name, Vasile, means “royal, regal”. But nobody in my family knew it when they chose my name. My sisters proposed to name me as one of our cousins was named, Vasile, because as they were children, they were playing all together and maybe my sisters wanted that I would be a good child to play with, as my cousin was. I hope I did not disappoint them in this regard. My father, whose name was also Vasile, liked the proposal of my sisters and so, I was called Vasile. They told me that they also thought to call me "Sergiu" because it seemed that it sounded good. But I think that they did not know the meaning of the name Sergiu, as well. Praise God who took care of me to not remain with the royal name only, but He showed the way of salvation to me and through faith in Jesus Christ I became royal, because I am the son of the King of Kings, who gave me the right to be called a child of God. Even more, I am now part of a royal priesthood, of a holy nation chosen by God to proclaim His great powers. Praise His name.

The significance of the name of the Savior

We have seen in the biblical passage that the angel told Joseph to call the baby to be born "Jesus" because He will save His people from their sins. This is the meaning of the name Jesus – Savior. Matthew, the Evangelist shows throughout the Gospel that bear his name how the prophecies of the Old Testament were fulfilled in the Lord Jesus.

The prophet Isaiah prophesied about the Lord Jesus and called the Savior "Immanuel", which means – God with us. In his first prophecy he says:

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His nameImmanuel (Isaiah 7:14)(NASB)

The names Emmanuel and Jesus do not contradict but complement each other

Through these two names, God wanted to communicate to the world that in the person of His Son, God is with us (Emmanuel) and came to save His people from their sins (Jesus).

Praise God who made this great work of salvation of the souls of all people through His Son Jesus Christ.
