John 6:49 -50

Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.

 

Sin shall not have dominion over you.

No temptation has seized you except that which is common to man. And God is faithful, he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand under it. (1 Corinthians 10: 12-13).

When the scripture declared that as believers are no longer under the dominion of sin and then went on to also declare that those who have been born of God cannot sin any more, the word of God was not ignoring the reality of the proneness of the flesh to sin, neither was it being unrealistic in making these claims. While these claims are positional truths, the word of God on the other hand clearly provide us more insights and heavenly wisdom on how we as believers can attain to these positional truths.
