Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
Here we have Matthew showing us to try to remove as much sin as you can from your life. Remember, we are told to KEEP HIS Commands and to never throw away HIS Torah. In this verse we are shown that if your hand causes you to stumble then you should cut it off. Right before this verse, Matthew tells us to gouge out our eye if it causes us to stumble and throw it out (Matthew 5:27). How much clearer does he have to be? He states that if something is causing us to sin then we have to remove it from our lives. If we follow along in this belief we will work towards eliminating sin our entire lives as sin will always try to sneak its way in. It’s a battle that will forever keep us strong in our Faith to HIM. The only thing HE commands is to have Faith and follow HIS commands. Don’t believe the hype that there are only ten commands. We state this all the time but there are over 600+ commands in the Old Testament and 1050+ commands in the new and we are to follow them all. Just thinking of doing something that would be considered a sin if physically done is sinning according to HIM as stated here (Matthew 5:28).
We can guarantee this. When we think bad thoughts, those thoughts are not coming from HIM. If we have Faith and HE has given us the Rauch HaKodesh (Holy Spirit/Set Apart Spirit) then those thoughts are not from us either. Any bad thought you think comes from the advisary and believe us, we work hard to close our ears to the advisary on a daily basis.
Jesus spoke of the vital importance of heart purity:
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matt. 5:8)
Are You Trying To Mock God
Don’t be deceived—living holy is a salvation issue and nothing less:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Gal. 6:7-9)
