                     YOU ARE UNCIRCUMCISED IN HEART

                 HEBREWS 4:12  – For the WORD OF GOD is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

                     2 THESSALONIANS 1:8-9

                               : 8  He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the G ospel of our Lord Jesus.

                               ; 9  They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power.

                     1 PETER 4:17-18

                               : 17  For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the Gospel of God?

                               : 18  And, ” If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and sinners?

         ******************************************************************************************* 

 

 This is what the Holy Scriptures say according to Prophet Jeremiah:

        JEREMIAH 9:25-26

    : 25  ” The days are coming,” declares the Lord, ” when I will punish all who are circumcised only in the flesh–

    : 26  Egypt, Judah, Edom, Ammon, Moab and all who live in the desert  in distant places. For all these nations are really uncircumcised, and even the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart.”

        ACTS 7:51

    : 51  You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!

  ***     In Abraham’s time, God made the Covenant of Circumcision in the flesh. Because of his faith in God, this Covenant was given to Abraham, his descendants,  people living with him and to the generations after him.

        GENESIS 17:9-14

    : 9    Then God said to Abraham, ” As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.

   : 10   This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep. Every male among you shall be circumcised.

   : 11    You are to undergo cicumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.

   : 12    For the generations to come every male among you who is eight years old must be circumcised including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner — those who are not your offspring.

   : 13    Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.

 ***  According to Paul in the Book of Galatians, the Circumcision in the Flesh is no longer necessary Paul is referring to outward circumcision. 

 

      GALATIANS 5:1-12   Freedom in Christ

   :  1    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

   :  2    Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all.

   :  3    Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.

   :  4    You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.

   :  5    But by FAITH we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness  for which we hope.

   :  6   For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any  value.

   :  7   You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth?

   :  8   That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.

   :  9   “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.”

   : 10   I am confident in the Lord that you will take  no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion  will pay the penalty whoever  he may be.

   : 11   Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being  persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished.

  : 12    As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

 

      ***     Here in Book of Romans, Paul made a clear distinction between outward  circumcision or circumcision in the flesh made by men and inward circumcision or circumcision of the heart by the Holy Spirit.         

                       ROMANS 2:28-29

   : 28   A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. 

    : 29   No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly. and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise is not from men, but from God.

    ***    In our time, this is the importance of circumcision of the heart, done by God- by the Holy Spirit; everyone must be circumcised in heart – to be able to return to God and be a part of the Body of Christ – THE CHURCH.

                    DEUTERONOMY 30:6

   :  6   The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all all your soul and live.

***    THIS IS BY FAITH- Like Abraham when he received the Covenant of Circumcision in the flesh; TODAY, we need the circumcision of heart; and this is done through BAPTISM IN WATER IN THE  NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. 

   This is why Baptism is important in one’s salvation!  

 

                        ROMANS 6:3-4

    :  3   Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

    :  4   We were therefore buried with him in baptism into death in order that,  just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 

 

                         COLOSSIANS 2:11-12

   : 11   In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature not with a circumcision done ny the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ.

   : 12   having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.
