Why God Said Remember!

Share

1 Kings: 18: 21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.

Jesus CallingThe one thing as a minister I can tell you is when God says something He means exactly what He says No fooling around, and if He is telling us to Remember something you better never forget it.

My last sermon was on the Ten Commandments and we seemed to have a problem in our world with Gods 4th commandment, the one dealing with Worship and what day to worship on. God says on the 7th day but man says no on the 1st day, my question to you is who do you believe and who do you obey.

As I study Gods word I find one problem with mankind stands out more than any other and that is the problem with obedience. All through the Bible you will find God pleading with Man to simply do what He says to do, no turning aside to the left or right, just simple obedience to His word, how hard can that be.

It all started with the Creation of our first parents, let’s go to the book of Genesis and do some research. Genesis: 2: 15: Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

There it is God created this beautiful world then He took the dust of the earth and created Man. But the very last thing He did was to create a help mate for man called Woman.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.23 And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

She was not to rule over the Man nor was she to be stepped on by man. Woman was taking out of the side of man, she was to stand with him by his side to be a companion, friend, helper, but the most importance roll she was to do was to be a life giver a Mother. In her the seed of man would reproduce itself, it is one of Gods many mysteries of life.

Genesis: 2: 8: The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

God is love He created this beautiful world and all the things that are in it for Mans enjoyment. He gave it all to Adam and said enjoy this beautiful world that I created just for you. God also planted a paradise garden and said to both Adam and Eve, “Remember” the one condition
Genesis 2: 15: Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Man was giving his first test to see if he would or would not obey his creator God. It was nothing big or something hard, but simple very simple “don’t eat from this one tree”. The fruit on it was just like all the others. The difference was that God said not to eat the fruit on this one tree.

Eve was warned not to go off far from her husband, but being busy she found herself closed to the forbidding tree
Genesis 3: 2: And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Do you see a problem, God said if you eat of this one tree you will surely die but Satan the snake said you will not surely die? It was a sad day for all mankind because both Adam and Eve ate the fruit fully knowing what God said would happen to them.

Romans 6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Does God mean what He says, you better believe it and right to the tee, God does not change midway or change to the left or right. When God said something He means it just like He said it.

Deuteronomy 5:32: Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

OK so I hope you can see in this that when God said something he does not take it back or change it

Matthew 5: 17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

Luke 21:33: Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

Jesus it telling us as plane as He can that He did not come to change any of the laws or commandments of His Father God

However, there were some sacrifice laws of animal that were a shadow of what He Jesus came to do. The animal sacrifice all pointed to Him Jesus dyeing on the cross taking our Sins away. These Laws were all nailed to the Cross with Jesus that is why we don’t have to sacrifice animal anymore because type and met antitype. The Blood of Christ paid it all on the cross, the Creator God dying for His creation.
———————————-

OK, now let’s get into what God said to Remember and 95% of Religious Leaders saying No it is OK to forget what God said to Remember.

tablets1According to the Bible Gods gave man Ten Commandments, and Gods gave them to His special holy people Israel. But God had a lot of other people who were not of the line of Abraham that also worshiped Him and more then likely lived by the same Ten Commandments Law.

Let’s take a look at the one Commandment that 95% of the Religious Leaders have a problem with.

Exodus: 20: 8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

Believe it or not, but this one Commandment says a lot about God and who He is, let’s look at some of it.
1. First thing God wants us to respect His wishes so He tells us to remember to keep this day holy and worship Him. Just think if everyone did just that there would not be so many different religions in our world today because everyone would know who the Lord God was and they would all come together to worship Him on the same day.
2. God tells us that we all need one day to rest and what better day could there be then the day God said to keep holy and worship Him
3. This Commandment also said Who created this world and where man came from. Here again if everyone remembered and kept this day holy there would never had been an atheist or agnostic. Why because right here we are told that in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them. No need to drought how man got here and if we came from monkeys.
4. Most importance is the last part Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. The Sabbath was just a day like any other until God blessed it making it a holy day a day to rest and remembering who God was and what He did. A day to worship God the Father a day of being with family and friends a day of getting away from all the things that keep us busy and occupy our time.
5. God rested on the 7th day after He finished the creation of this world, should we not follow His example. Did you Know that when Jesus finished the plan of mankind salvation on the 6 day Good Friday, He too rested the 7th day Sabbath before rising on the 1st day of the week Sunday? All through the life of Jesus He kept the Commandments of His Father.

Now let’s open Gods Holy Word the Bible and read some scriptures in the New Testament about the Character of God

Rev 11 19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant[h] was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

The Ten Commandment that were written on stone was kept in ark, there was an earthly temple made by man and there was a heavenly temple in heaven made by God. The Earthly temple was only a copy of the one seen in heaven by Moses

We know from history that Israel failed to keep God Commandments, they pushed them aside and in their place was man made commandments. We see this all through the life of Jesus the Pharisee accusing Jesus of braking Gods Sabbath Commandment, but Jesus was not braking His Father Commandments He was braking the man made one that the Religious Leaders switch in its place

Rev 12; 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Satan, the Devil, the Snake, the Serpent whatever you want to call him was cast out of heaven and what did he do, he went right to work on the Church putting pagan beliefs in place of truth. The Church of Roam that once was Gods church became indoctrinated with pagan beliefs and lies

Rev 16 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

False Prophets who were demons processed now at the leadership of the Church of Roam. Look at the book of Daniel he was giving a vision of what would happen in the future almost 600 years before Church

Daniel 7:25: He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

Right here Daniel is saying that this false Church power would persecute Gods true holy believers. The Roaming Church would kill them and speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High.

Now very important that you don’t miss this, what else will the Church of Roam try to do (And shall intend to change times and law) now do you see where Sunday came in, Sunday was a pagan day of worship but the Church of Roam cast down the Law of God His Sabbath that is why God said to Remember it.

Look at another scripture in the book of Revelation

Rev 14; 6. Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—7. saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

When you read this scripture it is almost word for word of Exodus 20: 8 – 10 (Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.)

The Sabbath with the Ten Commandments that God the Son (Jesus) gave to Moses 3,000 years ago is very much still to be obeyed

12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

How did this all happen; well look at what was happing to the Church while most of Jesus disciples were still alive evil men were coming into the Church as leaders and teaching false doctoring.

Jesus all aloneJude 1: 4 4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

Satan could not defeat the true Church by precaution so he joined the church and brought in his false teaching and pagan beliefs. And all who were true to the faith preach by Jesus disciples had to separate from the Church of Roam as the Bible said: Revelation 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Once again the Church of Roam with its daughters (other so called Christian denomination) will rise again and precaution will once again start in our day.

But we are not to despair we are to keep preaching the truth no matter what others say or how hard it gets. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

Look at the Gospel of John, evil with in the Church will become so corrupt that they will persecute God true Christian and not only persecute but Kill them believing they are doing Gods will John 16:2: They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.

When Jesus returns His army of Angels will fight for all His True Saints who by faith have waited for Him and kept the faith once delivered to the holy disciples. Look at what is said in Rev 19: 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Believe it or not but in Rev 9 it tells us the true condition of how the world will be, why because they did not remember to do what God told them to do. They pushed aside the true teaching of the Bible and excepted in its place the false teaching of Satan: Revelation 9: 20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. 21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Once again look at Rev 10: 5 in the very heart of this scripture it is almost word for word from the 4th Commandments (who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it)

Rev 10: 5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer,

Rev 10: 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

In the book of Genesis, the earth became so corrupt and Evil that God (Jesus) had to destroyed it with a flood, only 8 people survived. Now listen; Jesus told us that as the days of Noah were so shall it be as we near the time of the End or last days. Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.    Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

Jeremiah 9: 13 And the LORD said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts

Look at what is happening all around you the signs are all being fulfilled we are in that time when Jesus will soon return. Not only are the people of the world corrupt but the Churches and Religious Leaders are also corrupt. It is not about the truth it is about making money. The bigger the congregation the more Tithe they will give and the more Religious Leaders will have in their pockets.

Rev 15 15 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.

lesson02-12My friend Rev 15: 15 is about the seven last plagues, all who refused to obey God and Keep His Commandments, whose names are not written in the lamb book of life will have part in the last plagues. Pray and ask God to lead you by His Holy Spirit in to truth, open your mind and heart and study His word. Forget everything you were taught and let the Holy Spirit guide you through the Bible into truth. As you read don’t refuse the truth, just study and read the way the Bible tells you to do: Isaiah: 28: 10: For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.

God is looking for a people who will do His will, keep His Law, obey His Commandments. He is looking for a people who will do as He asked them to do. His way not their way, that is why when He says to Remember something don’t let any man tell you it is ok to forget it. Jesus said if you love me you will show it by keeping My Commandments.

Isaiah: 29: 13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

The Bible from Genesis to Revelation is all one book to understand Gods truth you need to study not only the New Testament but also the Old Testament.
I pray that you will open you heart and mind to God and learn obeisance. His will is the best enjoyment a Christian can have.

I am Elder Tim McNab for Restoring Gods Truth Ministries may the Holy Spirit be with you and lead you into all Truth is my prayer.

Gods Ten Commandments

Share

What do you believe about the Ten Commandments, are they still to be obeyed in our world today; or did they get replaced by Jesus or someone else with some other commandments?

tablets1Sometime things that we believe to be true are not always true and finding what is true is very difficult because people put their own tradition and belief in way of truth.

As a minister I want to make sure what I am saying or telling someone is what the Bible defines to be truth, and not what I think or anyone else. Come with me and let’s open the word of God the Bible and let’s find out about the Ten Commandments and see if we should or should not still be following them in our world today 2000 years after Jesus death on the cross.

The Ten Commandments are listed in the Bible in two places, first in the book of Exodus: 20: 2-17 and also in the book of Deuteronomy: 5: 6-21.
You can also find in the new testament outlines of the Ten Commandments in the book of, Mark: 10: 19, Matthew: 5: 27, Matthew: 15: 4, Matthew: 19; 18&19, Romans: 13: 9. You will also find Jesus keeping the Ten Commandments through His entire life, even while dying on the Cross He made sure His mother was to be cared for, commandment number 5

Jesus was teaching the people to keep His Fathers Ten Commandments, if He planned on changing them or changing any one of them surely somewhere in the New Testament there would be a scripture lettering His people know, God does not keep things a secret especially when He told you to remember something. Amos: 3: 7: Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

OK So first let’s look at each one of the Ten Commandments and see what they are asking or telling us and if they still apply to Gods Holy people in our time.

***Commandments: # 1: Exodus: 20: 2-3: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

The very first of the Ten Commandments starts with a brief reminder of God power followed by the command that we are not to have other Gods before or in the place of the Lord God. Should we as Gods holy people today have other Gods in our life. I would say No, look at Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

The Lord Gods is still the same God of Creation of Adam, the same God of Abraham, the same God of Israel, the Father God that Jesus came to show mankind Gods love to His creation, the same God of the Gospel today. From everlasting to everlasting, You are God, so I would say commandment number 1 is still to be obeyed by Gods Holy people in our world today.

***Commandments: # 2: Exodus: 20: 4-6: You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Throughout history man has always worship something or some God, many times a statue or carved image was made out of stone or wood and worship as a god.

Even in today’s world there are some Christians religions who still practice the worship of carved image. But Gods 2nd Commandments strictly forbids the worship of anything like an idol.

Deuteronomy 4:35: To you it was shown, that you might know that the Lord Himself is God; there is none other besides Him.

1 Kings 8:60: that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.

Mark 12:32: So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.

The Bible is very clear on this matter, the Lord is God and He alone is God and there are none others like Him. In our world today people make a lot of different things their god or Idol. Some worship their money, others worship their cars or things that they have, people have other people who the worship as god for whatever reason. Anything that gets in the way between you and the Lord God is an idol, and guess what even Church can become an idol, when people love their Church more then they love the Lord God. So the 2nd commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 3: Exodus: 20: 7-You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
We are not to make little of the name of the Lord God. That can be anything from idle speaking to full blasphemy of any of God names or His character; we are not to use Profanity or dragging God’s name through the mud of human emotion and joking.
When I was baptized I made a commitment a promise to God to serve Him and to show the world I want to be Christ like.
Acts 11:26: And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. Why because they were Christ like inside and out.

To be a Christian is to show the world Gods character living inside of you by doing the things He told us to do. When we don’t do them or wend we act more like the world then Christ we use His holy name in vain. So the 3rd commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 4: Exodus: 20: 8-11: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Is the Sabbath important? What does the Bible say?

Jesus CallingEzekiel 20:12: Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them.

The Sabbath is a sign between Gods holy people and Himself

Will we be keeping Sabbath in heaven and in the new earth? Read what Isaiah says Isaiah: 66: 22” For as the new heavens and the new earth Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the LORD, “So shall your descendants and your name remain. 23And it shall come to pass That from one New Moon to another,

And from one Sabbath to another, All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the LORD. 24: And they shall go forth and look Upon the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, And their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.”
According to the Bible, Gods Holy People will be keeping the Sabbath in the Earth made new, that is what Isaiah is saying
Did any of the Disciples keep the Sabbath after Jesus went to heaven: Looking at the book of Acts: 18: 4: And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.

The Disciples Paul (Saul) did not come into the Christian Church for almost 3 years after Jesus went back to His Father, then he spent another 3 years in studying. So Paul was still keeping the Sabbath for many many years and was in the Church or synagogue on Sabbath teaching about Jesus.
Also if you read in the book of Genesis chapter 1 & 2 you will find and account of God creation from day one to day seven, and on day seven God does something He did not do on any of the other days.

Look at Genesis 2: 2: And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3: Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
God blessed it and He made it Holy

Exodus 31:13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.

So the Sabbath was a sign between Gods and His Holy people, are we not His holy people today the Church that Jesus started. Also did you notice that Jesus die on a Friday, sleep in the grave during the Sabbath or Rested and woke up on Sunday. God rested after He finished His creation of our World on the Sabbath, Jesus rested on the Sabbath after He finished the plan of salvation and got the Victory over Satan and Sin.

Matthew: 5: 17&18: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

Jesus tells us plainly that He did not come to do away with any of Gods Commandments Law but He came to for fill what was spoken by the Prophets about Him. Jesus kept His Fathers Commandments, should we not be doing what Jesus did. He was our example because no man comes unto the Father but through Jesus. So the 4th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

Now there were some Laws that were nailed to the Cross when Jesus died, they were called the Mosaic law. They were a list of Ceremonical Laws dealing with the sacrificing of animal and their blood. These thing were a shadow of things to come. When Jesus died on the Cross all these Mosaic Laws were done away with, Why? Because they were fulfilled in the death of Jesus the ultimate sacrifice in man behalf. Under that the Mosaic law and Gods Ten Commandments Law were two completely different laws. The Mosaic law was written by man on animal skin or something, Gods Ten Commandments were written on Stone by God Himself. The Mosaic law was placed on the outside of the Ark but Gods Ten Commandments Law was placed inside the Ark.

So where did Sunday come from: That is another subject that we will take up later.

***Commandments: # 5: Exodus: 20: 12: Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
This is a commandment with a promise, if you obey Gods commandment and take care and respect your Mother & Father God will also take care of you and add years to your life.

But it goes on further than just that, we should honor and respect all who are older than we are and those who are in authority. Just think how wonderful our world would be if all people had respect and love for each other.

Let’s look at Matthew: 15: 1-9 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2: “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” 3: He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.5: But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God”—6: then he need not honor his father or mother. Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7: Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8: These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9: And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ How sad for God to say to man that our worship of Him is in vain because we would rather keep the traditions of our Church over His Commandments

They were so up on keeping their traditions that they could not see they were making void Gods Commandments with their traditions. Much like the Christians Church today. We want to place copies of the Ten Commandments on the Court House in our City’s and on our front lawn.

But where does God want to put them? Hebrews 10:16: “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

God wants His Laws and Commandments to be in one place, and that is living inside of you so that you can be an example reflecting the life and love of Jesus to others around you every day. So the 5th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 6: Exodus: 20: 13: “You shall not murder.

When Man was created he was created in the image and likeness of his creator. He was not created to die; death came in only after man sinned buy not obeying his creator command.
Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

God gave mankind a warning that his life was a gift from his creator on a condition of perfect obedience to His creator laws. By keeping them he would live forever but by braking them he would die.
Genesis 3: Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

So the question came down to who do you believe, do you believe your Creator or some snake in the grass you just met.

Look at John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Not only was Satan a murderer but the father of all lies.

Murder take the life of an innocent person and causes grief and hardship on his wife, children or on his parent and family. God never design mankind to die and never design man to fight and kill one another; all that was because of his Sin in not obeying his creator Commandments.
So the 6th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 7: Exodus: 20: 14: “You shall not commit adultery.

When God created man he was not created to be alone in a perfect world all by himself. God had something more wonderful in mind, the perfection of His master piece was in the creation of a Woman; in her and from her was to be life. God created her body specifically for the need of man and to bring life into the world by his seed. But man was not to be a whoremonger, he was to have one wife and they together were to be one in flesh.
Matthew 19:6: So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

The intimacy between one man and one woman is so beautiful that words cannot explain. When you truly love someone it brings in perfect trust to the relationship, that is what God wants from us, perfect trust that He will do what He says, perfect trust in His love for His creation.

In our world today perfect trust is extremely hard to find and that is why there are so many devoices. People get married for looks not love, for money not poverty for a good time not sickness. But perfect trust will lay down one’s life for the other, now maybe you can understand why Jesus came and gave His life on the cross.

The Church is Gods bride and when He comes back to our world it will be to marry all who gave their life by faith and perfect trust in Him as their Creator and Savior. So the 7th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 8: Exodus: 20: 15: “You shall not steal.
Stealing is not just the taking money, in fact there are many ways in our world todays that a person can steal. Stealing is the taking anything of value that belongs to someone else. You can steal time if you are working for someone and don’t give them all the time they are paying you for. You can steal information off of the internet these days; and of course there is money.

If you know your neighbor has lost something and you found it but don’t give it back to him, it is a form of stealing, because you know who it belongs too. Did you know you can also steal from God, when you read His Commandments the 4th one says it is a Sabbath day of rest and worship a special time set aside every week to be with your God and savior. You can steal Gods time by not worshiping Him on the day He set aside for worshiping

Gods commandment

Gods commandment

John: 14: 23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. So the 8th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 9: Exodus: 20: 16: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

A lie is anything that is not 100% percent truth. So if it is 99.9% percent true and .01% lie it just as well be a 100% a lie. With God only 100% truth is good enough everything else is a lie. Where did lying start look at the book of John and see what Jesus had to say about it while talking to the Pharisees

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Lying hurts people, and can ruin a person’s character for life. Satan lied to the angles about God the Son all because he was jealous and wanted to be like God. But it is impossible for a created being to be God or to be like God.
So the 9th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 10: Exodus: 20: 17: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

God has giving to each person everything that is needed to follow his Lord God. But when we are not satisfied with what God has provided but want more and will do anything to get it; that is coveting

Luke 3:14: Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying, “And what shall we do?” So he said to them, “Do not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.”
Be careful of coveting don’t try and live like your next door neighbor, don’t try and keep up with toys like everyone else at the office. Don’t worry about having to be dressed in the best that money can by just so you can fit in with others. Love the things that God has giving and put in your way and thank God every day for life.

Hebrews 13:5: Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Have you ever had what is called New Car fever, you want that new Car so bad that nothing and no one can make you see that it will be bad for you. Maybe because it will be too expensive or because it is not as good as the dealer clams it is, or it is something you just don’t need right now. There are a lot of reasons but you want it so bad you don’t care what anyone says. That is only one form of coveting

1 Timothy: 6: Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certainc we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Being rich is not as good as you think is it, there are more rich people committing suicide than any other group, why is that. You would think having all that money they would be the happiest people in the World. Money can buy you friends but Money can’t buy you Happiness.

Jesus is coming back and very soon, all the signs of His coming are being fulfilled, just read the book of Revelation and the daily Newspaper. This old world does not have much longer; where will you be? Where will Jesus true Church be, look at Revelation: 14: 12: Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

Rev: 19: 10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation: 12: 17 : And the dragon was wroth with the woman (Church), and went to make war with the remnant (Few) of her seed, which keep the commandments of God (Gods Ten Commandments Law), and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (the Spirit of Prophecy: See Revelation 19:10)

Revelation: 13: 8: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Go to the Book of Daniel Chapter 7:25-28
Read about a religious power that will try and Change Time and Law, Who’s Time and Who’s Law
Gods time and Law? it would not be prophetically significant for the little horn (religious) power to attempt to change human time and laws, for this is commonly expected in a struggle for world dominion. The conflict described here is between earth and heaven. The little horn intends to change Gods time and laws, most clearly seen in His Ten Commandments.

The 7th Day Sabbath

The 7th Day Sabbath

One obvious illustration of Gods time is His Sabbath, His Law the Ten Commandments: Any attempt by an earthly power to change Gods Sabbath is an attempt to change Gods Law, the heart of which is the Sabbath itself.

Gods true Church will be the ones doing what He ask of them to do, If you love me keep my commandments John: 14: 15: Don’t be fooled by the great Religious Leaders of our world saying oh don’t worry about those old Ten Commandments they have been done away with. Remember Jesus keep them all Ten of them. He did not come to do away with the Law but to fulfill the Law.

Remember this: The Ten Commandments were written by God Himself on two tablets of stone and place inside the Ark, they were not written by man.

Jeremiah 9: 13 And the LORD said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts. Evil men with evil intention who’s only goal is money in their pockets. They refused to preach the truth to their congregation because it is not the popular thing to do, Jesus called them a wolf in sheep’s clothing. But soon and very soon the day of God judgment will fall on all who refuse to do as God says, it will fall on all these false teachers and leaders, what will they do then.

*** What do you think, what one of the Ten Commandments did Satan brake, if you said all of them you are right. *** Jesus kept all ten of them and Satan broke all ten of them, that’s the different.

The wisest man who ever lived said these words below

Ecclesiastes 12:13: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, amen.

Crawfish Christians?

Share

What does it mean when you tell someone they are crawfishing!

Well down here in Louisiana it is a way of saying to back up, move backwards, to deny a statement, to go back on your word generally a Cajun term.

images[4]How is it that so many different Christian Denominations & Churches say they all believe in and keep all Ten of Gods Commandments? But if you look carful into their doctoring you can see that they really don’t keep all Ten of Gods Holy Commandments. And when you ask them about the 4th Commandments they crawfish saying we keep Sunday as our holy day of worship.

How do you think Gods feels about that?

I find in my Bible that God the Father and God the Son throughout all History wanted nothing more than a people who would be obedience without question to Gods in doing all that God asked

Adam & Eve failed when they ate of the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil. This was not really something hard that God asked of them, it was very small, you can eat from every tree except this one. Was God specific in what He said, was He being too hard, not at all it was only a test giving to mankind to see where his loyalty would be.
God also warned them to be on guard because of the rebellion that took place in Heaven so that Satan would not deceive them and cause them to sin.

Genesis: 2:
15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

God’s love for mankind was so great that nothing would be spared or withheld in the creation of this new world for man to live on. Everything was made perfect and in the book of Genesis we find that God saw and said behold that it was good.

But it was not long before Satan found his way to the new created human, and the very first thing he said was a lie that most Christians still believe today. God said you will surely Die if you eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and Satan say you will not surely Die. Today when someone Dies Christian believe they go right to heaven or to hell, but that is not what the Bible says or teaches, but that is another sermon.

Genesis: 3: 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

Adam & Eve both failed the test of loyalty and faith in God. But come on now, it was just one little piece of fruit that’s all, the problem is that it was one little piece of fruit that God said not to eat and on the day you do eat it, God said you will surely die.

Is God exact in what He tell us to do, yes He is, When God gives a command it is to be followed to the tee, nothing is to be added and nothing is to be taking away. God said it, so believe it, and that should settle it once and for all.

Let’s look at Genesis 6:
5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Why and how did Noah find grace in the eyes of God. Noah followed what God said, he did not turn to the Left or Right even a little. If God said it, he believed it and did as God commanded. So while all the world around him were busy having fun and enjoying a life full of sin, humble Noah was faithful to his God, and so God remember Noah.

God gave Noah a massage, a massage to preach to all the world, and God gave Noah 120 years to tell people of the soon coming destruction and that safety will be found for everyone who will be in the Ark that God is providing nothing else.

Genesis 6: 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Noah did according to all that God commanded him, what do you think would have happened if Noah would have cut corners in Gods directions of building the ark. If Noah would have cut even one little corner in the building of the ark, it might have sprung a leak and sank. Is God particular when He is giving direction or a commandment, you bet He is. God wants His children to obey His commandments the exact way He gave them with no deviation, any deviation from Gods way is Sin.

Genesis: 7: 1. Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.

What would have happened if Noah did not feel it was time for him and his family to go into the ark just yet, come on God you not serious about this flooding the world thing are you.

Noah knew one thing about God, and that was to take God at His word, when God says something believe it and do as God said to do.

If you read through the Bible you will find a lot of people who God dealt with, and they all knew one thing. That is when God says something that is what He mean, never depart from it because God does not change. Hebrew: 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

These days you can find a Church to fit everyone needs, if you don’t like one just go down the street and walk into another. There are Christian Churches that are more like a Rock band style to walking and falling in the spirit, just take your pick. But was this how it was in the days of the first Church, when Paul preached Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. Where then did this doctrine come from

2 Cor: 11: 4. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Turn with me to the book of Act, this is very importance that you not only read but also understand what Paul is saying. Here Paul is telling his followers, in some of the Churches while on his way back to Jerusalem that he might never again see their faces. And there is something very importance he must share with them before he goes.

Act: 20: 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

Paul was not afraid to tell his followers the truth; the truth is why so many of the Jews were upset at what they called this new teaching. But the problem was that it was not new, the Jews were so far off course from following God that they could not see the Truth standing right in front of them in the form of the Son of God, and we are no different today. We are so far off course from following the truth that many so called Christians want nothing to do with truth, they want it their way.

28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Again Paul is very clear in his teaching that after he is gone that others who he calls grievous wolves will enter in among them, not sparing the flock. In our days we see all these so called TV Evangelist and their lavish lifestyle that says they are nothing like Paul or even Jesus who they preach. Some of them live in homes worth over 2 or 3 million dollars and drive the best and most expensive cars on the market. Does that not tell you something, are we so blind today that we don’t see this as sin?

1 Timothy: 6: 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

This is why Paul could say that he covered no man’s silver or gold or clothing. He worked throughout the day and preach to them with every opportunity he had and on every Sabbath: Jews and Gentiles.

31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33 I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. 34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

Our world today needs Men like Paul, who because of love for his savior Jesus Christ he went without food without drink without everything except Faith. Faith that his God will supply his needs and that his God will send His Holy Spirit before him to make ready a people to hear the words of Truth.

Paul never changed any of the Laws that God gave to the Jews, remember in Paul time there were no New Testament it has not been written yet, Paul preach from the Old Testament the same Laws and Commandments that Jesus preached, nothing changed why because God does not change.

Does God Changed, will He alter His plans and go back on His word. The answer is No God does not change and He will never go back on His word, then why do some Christian say oh that 4th commitment thing was changed, God really doesn’t care what day you keep as long as you keep one that’s ok . Is that not being a hypocrite?
Matthew: 24: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Who was the God that gave the children of Israel the Ten Commandments? Jesus right, and when Jesus came He worshiped the Father on what day? The 7th day Sabbath right? In the Bible you will find no command telling Physical Israel or Spiritual Israel that the 4 commandment day of worship or any of the Ten Commandments has changed.

Jesus wrote the Ten Commandments Law Himself on two tablets of stone, He did not leave that to Moses or to anyone else. Why because Gods law is a part of His Character, God is Holy and His Law is Holy, God is perfect and His Law is perfect, because His Law is a reflection of Himself.

When God says to do something and gives directions on how to do it there is no cutting corners or doing it 99.9%, with God it is 100 present Gods way or nothing. Why because He is God, He is the Creator, He is the one who gives Life and apart from Him there is only death.

Now it is true a lot of good Faithful Christian men and women have no idea that the Church of Roman changed Gods Holy day of worship from Sabbath the 7th day to Sunday the 1st day of the week. They are completely innocent of not knowing this truth. James: 4: 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
But on the other hand there are a lot of Christian men and women and Church leaders who know the truth but will not teach it. This is a sin on their part, because they know and are willfully disobeying a commandment of God for the doctrine of Man.

Matthew: 5: 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus is very very clear on this matter, that nothing in the Law Old Testament or New Testament will change or has change until the Earth is made new at His second coming.

Now there were some Leviticus Laws that came to an end when Jesus died on the cross, why because they pointed to Jesus as the Lamb of God who will take away the Sins of this world. The fulfillment of these laws met their type in Jesus, so they were made void when Jesus fulfilled them as he sacrificed, His own God giving life for all mankind. These Laws was a shadow of things to come read it for yourself. When Jesus came they ended because He was the lamb of God who take away the sins of this world.

Colossians: 2: 16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ

Hebrews: 10: 10 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect

These Laws of Sacrificing animals and the keeping of New Moon and Sabbaths were speaking of a future event that would come, a time when Jesus Himself the Lamb of God will come and take away the sins of the world by His death

11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

Gods Son Jesus was sacrifice once for all men, women and children who by faith in Him believed that He was who He claimed to be

So you see my friend if you are still Crawfishing about Gods Law and Commandments it is time to get out of the water and remember. Hebrews: 13: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

You will do good if you never forget this one thing, God will never change. His word is Truth and Truth does not change but it will go out and do what it is intended to do in the heart and minds of True Christians.  Jeremiah: 29: 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Deuteronomy: 4: 29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

God wants a relationship with His people, the ones who Love Him by doing the things He asked them to do, by doing it Gods way and not there way John 15: 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

  gods-love[1]Romans: 5: 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. My brother it does not get any clearer than this, God loves you and He wants you to stop Crawfishing around with His word. In order to be saved we must except what Jesus did in our behalf, Jesus told us if we love Him then show it by doing what He asked of us John: 14: 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments

REMEMBER THIS: True Christians don’t keep Gods Commandments in order to be saved, True Christians keep Gods Commandments because they are saved, and show there love by doing what Jesus ask them to do.  that is the different

So when you know the Truth and don’t do it I am sorry to say but you are Crawfishing and to God that might be Sin.

Revelation: 14: 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

May God bless and be with you as you move forward in your Christian knowledge of loving the Lord your God with all you are.

Am I a Real Christian?

Are you a Christian? Just because you go to Church or belong to some religious organization it does not mean that you are a

Gods commandment

Gods commandment

Christian. So what is a Christian or better yet what makes a person a Christian, look at Act 11: 26: And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. So why were they called Christians because of their Christ Likeness.

So test yourself and see if you are or are not a Christian. There is a very simple way of checking; first you will need to get two things a tape recorder and a hammer. When you are ready press record on the tape recorder then take the hammer and hit your thumb. As soon as the pain goes away rewind the tape player and listen to the words that came out of your mouth. You see anyone can call themselves a Christian on the outside, but it is what’s on the inside that makes a person a real Christian.

Read the 4 Gospels in the Bible about how Jesus conducted Himself in all of life situations and compare that to your life style. What does it say to you, is there anything that needs to change in your life?

Here are some good scriptures on being a true Christian.

Matthew: 6:24
Romans: 12:1
James: 1:22
James: 4:17

Take a look at how Jesus lived His life here on this earth.

After the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior we see Christ gave the commission to His disciples. “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth,” He said “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15. Again and again the words were repeated, that the disciples might grasp their significance. Upon all the inhabitants of the earth, high and low, rich and poor, was the light of heaven to shine in clear, strong rays. The disciples were to be co-laborers with their Redeemer in the work of saving souls for Gods kingdom..

The commission had been given to the twelve when Christ met with them in the upper chamber; but it was now to be given to all His true believers. At the meeting on a mountain in Galilee, all the believers who could be called together were assembled. Of this meeting Christ Himself, before His death, had designated the time and place. The angel at the tomb reminded the disciples of His promise to meet them in Galilee.

The promise was repeated to the believers who were gathered at Jerusalem during the Passover week, and through them it reached many lonely ones who were mourning the death of their Lord. With intense interest all looked forward to the interview. They made their way to the place of meeting by circuitous routes, coming in from every direction, to avoid exciting the suspicion of the jealous Jews. With wondering hearts they came, talking earnestly together of the news that had reached them concerning Christ.

At the time appointed, about five hundred believers were collected in little knots on the mountainside, eager to learn all that could be learned from those who had seen Christ since His resurrection. From group to group the disciples passed, telling all they had seen and heard of Jesus, and reasoning from the Scriptures as He had done with them. Thomas recounted the story of his unbelief, and told how his doubts had been swept away.

Suddenly Jesus stood among them. No one could tell whence or how He came. Many who were present had never before seen Him; but in His hands and feet they beheld the marks of the crucifixion; His countenance was as the face of God, and when they saw Him, they worshiped Him.

This was the only interview that Jesus had with many of the believers after His resurrection. He came and spoke to them saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” The disciples had worshiped Him before He spoke, but His words, falling from lips that had been closed in death, thrilled them with peculiar power. He was now the risen Savior. Many of them had seen Him exercise His power in healing the sick and controlling satanic agencies.

They believed that He possessed power to set up His kingdom at Jerusalem, power to quell all opposition, power over the elements of nature. He had stilled the angry waters; He had walked upon the white-crested billows; He had raised the dead to life. Now He declared that “all power” was given to Him. His words carried the minds of His hearers above earthly and temporal things to the heavenly and eternal. They were lifted to the highest conception of His dignity and glory.

Christ’s words on the mountainside were the announcement that His sacrifice in behalf of man was full and complete. The conditions of the atonement had been fulfilled; the work for which He came to this world had been accomplished. He was on His way to the throne of God, to be honored by angels, principalities, and powers. He had entered upon His mediatorial work. Clothed with boundless authority, He gave His commission to the disciples: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,” “baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:19, 20,

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you Christ said to His true believers. If we are to be a part of Christ true believers today we like His true believes 2000 years ago need to be doing the same thing, don’t you agree. Remember God does not change men change but God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Almost 2000 years ago the Son of God Jesus the very word of God walked this earth. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

Jesus was the master creator of not only our world but of all the heavens of heavens. It was Jesus who formed man out of the dust of the earth and breathe into him the spirit of live from his creator God. It was also Jesus who told our first parents not to eat from one tree in the garden as a test of man obedience to his creator God. It was also Jesus who in console with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit said that if mankind failed the test of obedience He would give His life in their place. Why because the law said in Ezekiel 18:20: The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The children of Israel were the chosen people of God to tell the world about Him. But instead of telling the world about God they built wall between themselves and the gentiles.

The Bible tells us in John: 1: 11 that Jesus came to His own people, but His own people who should have been watching for the fulfillment of the prophecy’s about His coming were sleeping on the job.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.12 But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

If you want to be a true Christian then you must live as Jesus lived, is that not correct. What was the one thing that Jesus always did that made Him so different, He kept His Father Commandments? What was His Father Commandments John: 15:9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. God has giving to man His laws His Ten Commandments law that if a man will live by them it will show to the world who you really love. The first 4 commandments are on one table of stone telling about mans duty and love to his Creator God, the other 6 on a table of stone is man duty and love to his neighbor, (His friend, his brother, where he works, people he meets every day, and most of people who are poor and in need of help)

When Jesus was asked by a rich young Ruler what must he do to be saved Jesus told him to keep the Commandments go read the story of the rich young ruler in Mark 10: 17 to 21. If Jesus had any plans to change any of the Ten Commandments why would He tell this young man to keep them. The reason was that Jesus also kept them because they were His Father Commandments and He Gods Son lived His life by them to show the world that man can live but every world that comes out of the mouth of his Creator God.
John: 15: 11“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

Right here Jesus is saying this is the fulfillment of the Father last 6 Commandments. They were written on tables of stone that mean that cannot be changed.

All through the Bible you will find every law spoken of has a relationship to one if not more of God Ten Commandments law that He wrote on two tables’s stone and gave to His people.

Jesus CallingJohn: 3: 16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Want to know if you are a true Christian, remember a few years ago there were a lot of people with the sign (WWJD: What Would Jesus Do). Well that is very true, do what Jesus did because after all there is where the name Christian came from, people living and doing what Jesus did.

If Jesus was kind to His enemies, you too be kind to your enemies and forgive them as Jesus would do. If Jesus spent time in praying, you should also spend time every morning and evening praying for strength from God to be like His with everyone you meet. If Jesus went out of His way to give someone help, then you too should be ready always to lend a hand to someone in need. If Jesus went to Church every week and did it on the Day His Father said was holy the (Sabbath) then what day do you think you should be going to Church.

Please remember something that the New Testament Scriptures was not written till almost 15 or 20 years after the Death of our Lord Jesus. So just like Jesus did, also did His follower, they preached and went to Church every Sabbath. They were showing the people in the Old Testament scriptures the prophecy’s that all things pointed to Jesus who was the Son of God the Father.

Go and take a look at Paul who was the first missionary to the Gentile, look at Acts: 18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. Know where in the Bible does it says anything about a change being made to God’s Commandment Law. What is really sad is the fact that most Christian don’t even know what day Sabbath is. Why because the Roman Church changed the Sabbath to Sunday and so people take it for what it is and never question the Church. No matter how good or holy a person appears on the outside, it is what’s on the inside that counts.

No Man no matter who he is or how holy he may seem to be has the authority to change any of Gods Laws.

Look at what Paul has to say about that.

Galatians: 1: 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Paul is saying that if anyone comes to you preaching any other Gospel then the one that he preach at the first let that man be accursed. In other words don’t listen to him or what he has to say, because he is a liar, and the Bible said that Satan is the father of all liar.

Because the gift of God is eternal life through only one person, God Son Jesus Christ.

Romans: 6: 23
23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Propose in your heart today before it is too late to follow Jesus and by following Him and doing the things He did, it will tell the world what you are. Because what will show on the inside will be the same on the outside, Christian (Christ Like)

God bless you my friend

Restoring Gods Truth Ministry

Would we Crucify Jesus again!

Share

The Bible is a book all about love and the Earth is a story about creatures made in the very image of their creator who rejected His love.

He Died for YOU

He Died for YOU

But God the Father loved them still so much that He sent His Son to show them the Father and that all who by faith in Him would have ever lasting life. Jesus is our example of what true love is all about, how could we have crucified someone so full of love. How can men be so full of hate to kill the only Son of the creator Father God.

Acts:20:
28: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30: Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

I want to share something very important with you; something that I have been preaching in almost all of my sermons, and that is about our Churches and our Religious Leaders today. Are we as Christians truly following the word of God or that of man?

Everyone wants to defend what they believe as being the truth, but the question is what is truth? The Bible must define to us what truth is in order for us to know if we are keeping it or not. So what does the Bible say is truth John:17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. So according to the Bible truth is Gods word.

2 Timothy:3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

So now we know what truth is and we know that all scripture is giving by inspiration of God, so that we might check and see if what we are being told by our Church is or is not truth.

STOP; and think about this; if Jesus came back to our world today would we try and crucify Him again. Come with me on a journey through the Old and New Testament and let’s find out the reason our Religious Leader 2000 years ago rejected His teaching and put Him to death. Then answer the question if Jesus came again today would He find the Church, His Bride as described in the book of Revelation ready for him to take home or to Crucify Him again.

Let’s look first in the Gospel of John: and start in chapter 15
9: As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11: These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is a very important subject so I will be using a lot of scripture from both the New & Old Testament, why because to understand the New we need to understand the Old and to understand the Old we need the New. Rv:11:3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Jesus said that His life on this Earth was to show us the Father love Jn:5:20: For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

What was Jesus model here on Earth, to be like His Father in Heaven. Many people even today have a misconception of God the Father; they believe Him to be some tyrant overbearing God who if you don’t serve Him He will burn you up in hell for ever and ever.

But that is not the Father God that Jesus came to show us, Jesus is showing us a Father God who loves and loves us so much that He sent His Son His only Son to show us the Father love. Our first parent sinned and separated us from the love of God by Sin, but it is through the work that Jesus did that give man forgiveness and reconciliation to bring us back to the Father.

John: 14
6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8: Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10: Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11: Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

Jesus was soon to leave and He wanted to make sure those that He left behind would not feel helpless or lost. He knew there mind was on becoming great and number one in this life, there were not fully prepared to endue the trial coming before them. He wanted them to understand that when He left another would come to open there minds to everything He taught them and that they would have faith and know that God the Father and Jesus were one in the same.

23: Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24: He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

Hi disciples were to teach others as Jesus taught them, and that was to worship God the Father. Jesus showed the Father love in His life on this earth, He walk and did the things His Father gave Him to do. The Leaders of the Church who were to be the ones showing the common people about God, the very God who gave them His laws and commandments were so far off of true worship they did not recognize the Fathers Son when He came to them.

imagesCA07BFOUThey rejected Him and His teaching. Why because it was different from what they were teaching. How could this be, how could they get so far off from the truth about God, they were the Religious Leaders they were the very ones people looked to for help and guidance.

Stop and ask yourself this question, why are there so many different Christian Churches in our world today. There was only one back in Jesus time the one He started with 12 disciples so why so many now. Funny but we all like to play games and the most command game is follow the leader. Sad but true if someone does not like something in a church he will just leave and start a church of his own. If he is a good speaker and tells the people what they want to hear before long you will have another Christian Denomination.

If Jesus came back today what Church would He go too, I am sure it will be the one following His Commandants all Ten of them. Why I say that because when He was here the first time that is the one He went too..

What is bad about all of this is when the Religious Leaders are following the wrong way everyone else who are following them are also going the wrong way. If Jesus came back today what Church would He be going too, I am sure it will be the one following His Comandents

Jesus came to show His disciples the truth and to follow the commandments of God the Father the same ones He followed while He was here on the Earth. Men love to intrepid the Bible and tell others what is means. But the Bible does not need anyone to intrepid it 2Tm:2:15: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. If we will just take time and study the word of God, His word, the Bible will intrepid itself, that is the gift of the Holy Spirit, to lead us into all truth.

31: But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.

Today there are many Christians and Religious Leaders telling us that we no longer need to keep all those old Commandments of God, or it is OK to keep them a different way. But was that what Jesus were teaching, or was that the problem with the Religious Leaders then, they were good men “sometimes”. But little by little they compromised the true teaching of God and put into place the teaching of men. Look at what the Bible is telling you in the book of revelation in the end time there will be a small group of true follower who will be keeping the commandments of God not the commandments of the Church.

Look at Matthew: 7: 21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

As you reading this, can you understand it; Jesus is telling this to men and women who called themselves Christians who profess to be keeping His truth

23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

They are the Religious Leaders and there followers; so called Christians that Jesus is talking to, the question is why, why is Jesus saying I never knew you. Could it be for the same reason the Religious Leaders in His time wanted to kill Him.

We need to go back into history and look at some prophecy about the times we live in, turn with me to the Book of Daniel

God gave a King by the name of Nebuchadnezzar a dream, his dreams was about all the major kingdoms that would come up and rule this Earth. Those kingdoms were Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greek, and the very last Roam.

Daniel: 2:
36: This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37: Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38: And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
39: And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
40: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41: And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42: And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43: And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44: And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

OK now let’s look at these kingdoms

Gold = Babylon: The head of gold represented Babylon, which was the ruling world power from 612-539 B.C.

Silver = Medo-Persia: The chest of silver represented Medo-Persia, the ruling world empire from 539-331 B.C.

Bronze = Greece: The thighs of bronze represented Greece, the dominant world ruler from 331-168 B.C.

Iron = Rome: The legs of iron represented Rome, which enjoyed world supremacy from 168 B.C.-A.D. 476. Jesus was born when Rome was in power

Iron and Clay = the Divided Empire: The feet that were partly iron and partly clay represented a divided empire that would not cleave together. No single power has ruled the world since A.D. 476, and it will remain divided until Christ’s return. But note that the legs of Iron representing Roam extend all the way into the very toes of the image, right down to the time we are living in.

Stone = Christ’s Eternal Kingdom, His Word, and His Law

We are living in the very toes of this image where soon Jesus is to return. Question is where will you be, on what side will you be standing. On the side of your Church or on the side of God Truth; the choice my friend is your

Now let’s go to the Old Testament and see some of prophecy about the Church that we find will come out of the Iron and Clay of the legs and feet

Dan:7:25: 23: Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

What makes this fourth beat or kingdom so different from all the rest, after the fall of the Roman kingdom When the Roman Empire began to crumble in A.D. 476, it was not overtaken by another world power. Instead, barbarian tribes conquered the Roman Empire and divided it just as Daniel prophesied. Ten of these tribes evolved into modern Europe. They were the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals, Alemannians, Sueves, Anglo-Saxons, Heruls, Lombards, and Burgundians. Seven of them still exist today in Europe. For example, the Anglo-Saxons became the English, the Franks became the French, the Alemannians became the Germans, and the Lombards became the Italians.

24: And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Note; Roam never fell to another world power it was divided and change from a world empire to a religious empire. It is the same today in our time we are the feet of this great image that Daniel seen, and for many years the only church that ruled the world was the church of Roam, the legs of that great image.

25: And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they

Is there on Earth today a Religious power that claims it has power to make and change Gods Law and His Commandments? It is sad to say but it is true that the Church of Roam claims to have that power on Earth to do just that. And they changed who’s time and who’s Law. Look at the 4th commandments, Gods day of worship and His time to come and abide with His people the Sabbath to Sunday.

How log would this corrupt Religious power rule, look at the book of Revelations

Reveluation: 11:

2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

During these times of persecution where would the true Church be Rv:12:6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Gods true Church would go into hiding because of the persecution of the corrupt Roam church. Read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs if you have any drought of how corrupt a church can become when lead under the power of an evil devil and not a loving God.

God has always had a people who kept the truth of His word even to death. Why because they follow the true teaching of Jesus and refused to follow the corrupt teaching of the church.

Mk:13:13: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mt:24:9: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Because they stood up against the corrupt teaching of the Church and paid the price with there very own life. They knew that they would be killed for telling others the truth about God the Father and His Son Jesus. But they would not compromise the truth even if it meant dyeing; they love Gods more then life itself.

John:15:
24: If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25: But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

Jesus told us that if they would do these things to Him Gods Son, they would do it to us as well who followed His true teaching.

We are told that they will hate us, why because we are different because we keep the Commandments of God and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ

Rv:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Rv:19:10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

We are to worship God and God only; we are not to bow down and give any man or image the reverence that belongs to God alone.

Look at how the Bible describes the last kingdom, Jesus kingdom

The stone that was cut without human hands represents God’s kingdom. It will not be a conglomeration of earthly kingdoms, but a total replacement Revelation 21:1. The Scriptures declare that when Jesus Christ returns to earth, He will completely consume all the kingdoms of earth and establish an everlasting kingdom Daniel 2:44. What exciting news! Jesus Christ is coming again! All history is moving toward this climactic conclusion of when the Son of God shall return in majesty to bring in the kingdom of everlasting righteousness.

The Angle came to Daniel to show him what will happened in the latter days (End Time)

Dan 10: 14: Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Dan:7: 45: Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Look at what Paul said to the Church of Thessalonians: 4:

13: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Here Paul is preaching about the follower of Jesus who had died and sleeping in there graves. They wanted to know what is going too happened to them. They knew that when someone died they did not go to heaven or hell, that they were right there in the grave. So Paul told them not to worry that when Jesus came back all who are in the grave would rise first and then we who are still alive will go up to meet Jesus in the air

15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Jesus when He is coming back will call with a shout and the trump of God and all who died in the hope and faith of Jesus will come alive never to die again. How could this be; because they died in Faith what Jesus told His followers to do, that if He goes He would come back and take them with Him. Remember the story of Lazarus in the book of John (John:11:43) Jesus had to call for him by name so that all dead who was in the grave would not come back to life.

lesson07-1617: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18: Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Jesus is the Stone that was cut out of the rock with out hands and is coming back for all who by faith in Him believed and did the work He told them to do not what the Church tell you to do.

People need to study the word of God the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and let the Bible intrepid itself and go by Gods word not mans.

So what do you think, now some 2000 years after Jesus died if He was to come back as a man like He did to the Jews would they crucify Him again? There are so many different religions in our world today, how do you tell which is the true Church, Remember in the book of revelations it said that they will be a remnant a very small group compared to the Great mega Churches of the world.

Rv:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Who is satan mad with and will do all he can to destroy and kill them, that is right the ones who will be keeping the commandments of God. Remember keeping the commandments will not save you, we are not saved by keeping the commandments or the Law, we are saved by the grace of God. But we keep the commandments because Jesus told us by keeping them it will show to the world who we love; His true Church.

Jesus Himself kept His Father Commandments; the ones He gave Moses, for His commandments are the very character of God Himself

If you are in drought as to what the Truth is just do this: WWJD What Would Jesus Do

Jesus kept His Fathers Commandments all Ten of them

This is Elder Tim McNab for Restoring Gods Truth Ministries, Don’t be one of them that Jesus will say sorry but I never knew you.

What does the Bible say?

Share

When my Dad said something he meant what he said, there was no such thing as a second chance.

I grew up with two brothers older then me just about 11 months apart, and we fought like cats and dogs.

When we did something bad my dad made sure we knew not to do it again. Let’s say he had a way of making an impression on you that you would never forget.

He did all he knew to do, to teach us right from wrong.

The sad thing is when he was young he never knew God and never knew how to show love.

I am glad that God is nothing like, my earthly father.

My Heavenly Father is a Father of Love and Kindness toward His children.

He makes sure you know the different between right & wrong, but He will not force you to either one He does it with love.

It is a choice that He gives each of us to know Him and Love Him.

His Word His Truth is all that a Man needs to live

Let Us Pray !
———————————————————

When we study the Bible and want to know Bible Truth there is only one way and that is to pray for the help of Gods Holy Spirit and let the Bible interpret itself..

When man tries to intrepid what the Bible said, he is seldomly right.

Doesn’t God send the Holy Spirit to everyone that tries to understand the Bible?
 
Answer: No, it depends on your motive, intentions and your obedience to what you’re learning. Note these verses:
 

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, WE OUGHT TO OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MEN. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also THE HOLY GHOST, WHOM GOD HATH GIVEN TO THEM THAT OBEY HIM.” (Acts 5:29-32)

When you find the truth in Gods word and do it not, you shut off His Spirit of truth, If you find truth in Gods word and you Obey His word God will lead you into more truth.

If any man WILL DO HIS WILL, HE SHALL KNOW THE DOCTRINE, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” John 7:17

 

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye CONTINUE IN MY WORD, then are ye my disciples indeed; And YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31, 32

 

Only those who OBEY God and OBEY what they learn from His word can continue growing in truth.

 

The Bible must be studied in accordance with how the Bible tells you to study it or you will walk away with the wrong interpretation of what it is saying.

Many of good men have gone wrong trying to interpret the Bible; they study but not in accordance with how the Bible tells them to study.

I can take the Bible and a scripture and make you believe anything I want and show you scripture to back it up. But is it Truth? It is coming out of the Bible?

But it is nothing more then a man made interpretation of Gods word.

Why are there so many people (Bible scholars included) that can’t come to a good understanding of Scripture? The reason is that spiritual things “are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2: 

13: Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
 
Without the Holy Spirit’s help a person can’t understand the Bible.

2Pt:3:17: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

A few weeks ago my sermon was on What is Truth, and we found out that the only thing that is Truth is God’s Word.

Apart from God’s Word is only a lie.

So if God’s Word is Truth and His Spirit is Truth, then we must ask what does it teach or say.

God’s word is Truth
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

If we use God’s word to find out what Truth is should we not also use God’s word to tell us how to intrepid His word, His Truth!

Let’s look at the Book of Isaiah and see what it says on How we should study the Bible

Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Isa: 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

So if we are to know Truth and know What the Bible teaches as Truth we must also study it in accordance how God has told us to study it.

Is that right… Who knows best God right….

At work many of the people I work with are all ways asking me if I am a Jew. I say Why do you ask that…..

Then they said , why do you keep all those Old Jewish rules and laws.

I then ask Old Jewish Rules and Laws Please explain.

That thing about the Sabbath day and not being able to eat Meat or Pork

I then ask them are you sure that is a Jewish thing.

In fact Jewish people eat Meat and they Worship on the Day God told them to Worship on, but if that makes anyone a Jew then I might be a Monkeys uncle accordance to Darwin.

I am not a Jew and I know following God word don’t not make any one a Jew, what it does do is make them a Bible believing Christian and that makes them a Spiritual Jew.

Let’s look into God’s Word and see where did keeping the Sabbath and eating meat and unclean meat come from.

Let’s see if in fact they are just an old Jewish rule and Law and not for us today.

Genesis 2:
1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3: And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4: These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

So here we find that Adam & Eve were the first two Jewish people because they kept the Seventh day holy as God commanded them before Sin entered this world.

So Adam & Eve kept the Seventh-day of the week holy, why because God told them to keep it Holy, not by force but by Love

Do you think they taught there Children about God Seventh-day Rest, Don’t we as parents Teach our Children things that are importance for them to learned

So we find that Adam & Eve were giving the Seventh-day rest before they had any Jewish Children.

Back before the Flood men lived for many hundred years and had full capacity of his Brain, there was no need for books. Instructions were handed down from generation to generation with perfection.

After the Flood when men begin to populate the Earth again and not live as long as before, God gave instructions to Moses to Wright in a book so we would not forget what God’s Word say.

Look at Israel on there way to the Promise Land, What happened

 

Gods Holy Sabbath day

Gods Holy Sabbath day

Ex 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. God performs a Miracle by give them food in the desert, but he tells them something not to do, Don’t gather it on the Sabbath

How do we know that the Seventh day is the Sabbath?

Ex:16:26: Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

So accordance to the Bible what day is Sabbath

Exodus 20
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Now you might say I know that verse that is one of the Ten Commandments but there is something missing, that is correct it starts with the Word Remember..

8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

God is saying go back to Genesis and Remember what I told your first Parents to do keep holy the Seventh-day of the week

9: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

The 4th commandment states two things very clear Who God is & What God did,
—————————-

So we find that the Sabbath is not a Jewish thing, it goes all the way back to Gneisses. What about Food or Meat is that Jewish

What Food did God give man to eat?

Genesis 1
29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30: And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

God did not say anything about eating meat here, He said every green herb shell be for meat. God gave only Veggie here

So when did man start eating Flesh

Genesis 7

1: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2: Of every clean beast; Hold on Time out What book are we in, Genesis Chapter 7 right; before there were a Jewish Nation right, Was Noah a Jew ?

So God way back in the Beginning made Distinction between Clean and Un-clean Animals

thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Do you see that 7 of the Clean 2 of the un-clean
3: Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

Was Noah Jewish?

No more then I am, Did God make a distinction between Clean and un-clean animals back in Noah time before there were Jewish people living on the Earth, yes He did.

5: And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
6: And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7: And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8: Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9: There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

Why did Noah need more of the clean animals then that of the un-clean

After the Flood all Vegetation was distorted, Man was allowed to eat only the Clean Animals and also to use them for sacrifice to atone for his sins.

Genesis 8
20: And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Noah took of the clean animals and made an offering unto the Load, the others he used for food for him self and his family.

If Noah would have used any of the un-clean animals, what would have happen to them, Extinction? They would not have made it into our days.

Are we told in the New Testament that it is now OK to eat the Unclean Animals

Remember the Bible must be studied how

Isa:28:10: For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

If the Bible does not agree with your interpretation it is because there is something wrong with your interpretation not the Bible

The Bible must agree Old Testament and New together if it does not go back and re-study again.

If God did not allow the Unclean to be eating back in Genesis He is not going to change His mind in the book of Act

Let’s look at Act 10
10: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
11: And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
12: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13: And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

Do you see that, Look like it is ok to eat anything right. NO….

First ask Does it agree with the rest of the Bible,

You will find the answer is No, so there must be some wrong with how we are reading it.

Sometimes you must read the completed content of the Scripture in order to understand what the God is saying

Read all of Act 10 and you will find that God was showing Peter that not animals; but Men are not common or un-clean

All men are created equal in the eyes of God, the Color of there skin may be different but they all bleed the same red.

Jesus said Think not that I came to Change the Laws

Mt:5:18: For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

God word from Old to New is still the same nothing has changed. He knows what is best for his children and he wants them to live a better and heather life.

Only as we rest on the day God gave as rest and keep those thing that he told us not to do can we enjoy a better happier life here on this Earth until he comes for those who have put there Faith in His Word.

We do this not to be saved, for no man can save his self

But because we are Saved by his grace we want to show other a better way of living and that is by every word that comes from God

Matthew:4:4: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

So when I am ask if I am Jewish all I can say is; not by Birth

But I am a Jew by Spirit

Romans 2
28: For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

What ever you do and how ever you Study your Bible never take just one or two Scriptures and try to understand what God is saying.

The Bible must be studied from Genesis to Revelations on ever subject in order to get a clear understanding of what God’s word is saying.

lesson02-12There can be no separation of Old and New Testament.

The Old Testament help us to understand the New Testament

And the New Testament helps us to understand what the Old Testament was saying.

That is the way God made it

Isa:28:10: For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Restoring Gods Truth

If God is so good why ?

Share

My son came home yesterday and told me about his friend whose wife Jesus holding a man prayingwas pregnant and only two days passed the baby’s due day when the baby stop moving and died, Why, why, why did something so terrible like this happen to this young couple, they had prepared everything expecting this child to come into the world and fill there home with joy and love, But now there is only emptiness, pain, sorrow and hurting, God where were you, how could you just stand there and let something like this happen, Why God why.

My friend Larry was a good Christian man who I met on Cancer Survivor Network. We did a lot of talking by e-mail then one day he said I got some bad news, my cancer is back again. We talked about it and doing treatment again, but when he started the treatment is did not work. Larry was a faithful Christian he lived helping other and was the kind of person who you would love to be around. He died, Why God why did you let Larry die he was a believer and a good man so why did you let his cancer come back and kill him.

I had another friend who lived in Freeport Texas, a good man who did not hurt anyone he had a beautiful wife who loved him very much but one day he got a little sick and they found out his Lymphoma was back again. He lived in pain and finally passed away after a long hard fight.

My brother Jesse also had a cancer called Lymphoma the doctors tried all they could do but his heart just could not take all the damage for the Chemo, it killed him.

My Mother at the age of 49 got colon cancer, she did all she could do to fight it but as time went on she died.

A few weeks ago there were some very bad tornados up north, some people died others lost there homes, cars, and all there possession.

This week I see in the news about wile fires taking and burning to the ground people homes and everything they had.

And all we can say is what is going on, where is God, why is He not stopping stuff like this from hurting people.

I had a very bad time growing up because dyslexia, it was not until I grow-up and got married that my wife helped me and it disappeared. Now it is back again but I just say it not the grammar or spelling that is important it is the massage.. Then at the age of 46 I was told I had NPC this is a cancer in the sinus. Who me, cancer, no way it can’t be true, I just don’t understand it, how could God do something like this to me. After all my Chemo and Radiation treatment to the head it came back worse then ever.

So If God is so good why is there so much pain, sickens, and Death. Why God why what did I do that was so bad that I got cancer right in the prime of my life, could you not stop it.

I am sure that there are times in our life we all question God as to why He gave me or my love one this problem, this pain, this sickness, this suffering and sometime separation by Death.

Let us Pray!

In order to answer the question if God is so good why is there so much Pain, Sickens, Death and Destruction. We will need to know who God is and to do that we have to use the only book that tells us about Him. I ask you do not take my word for what I am going to tell you about God, but to get your Bible out open it and follow along with me to see if what I am telling you is the truth. You see what I say does not mean anything it is what the Bible said that means everything. I don’t want you to believe what I say I want you to believe what the Bible is telling you.

Let’s go to the Book of Genesis 1 and start on verse 1.

1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4: And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5: And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

The Bible tells us that God is the creator of all things; it is He who made the heavens above and the Earth beneath, lets go on to verse 26.

26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

So God then created Mankind, He creator man in His own image and likeness and gave to him dominion over every thing He created and He looked at it all and in verse 31: And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

Albert and Amanda Acorn

Picture taken by Benjamin Bruce

God saw that is was not just good but very good, ok so what happened why did it all change. Let’s look a little more

Let move to chapter 2 and verse 9: And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

God did not make us robots, God made us to have freedom, freedom of choice, freedom of will. Freedom to serve Him or not to serve Him, He wanted a creation of people who could show love back to Him for what He has done for them, and to do that He made a test and simple little test of freedom to choose God or not to choose God.

Look at Genesis Chapter 3 verse 1
1: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2: And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

So now satan come in to the picture, the only place that he was allowed to work was with in the space of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. He did not have dominion over the Earth he was limited to only one little area and that is where Sin interned into all of mankind.

Look at what happened

6: And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

The sad part here, Eve was deceived by satan to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil but Adam when he realize what Eve did could not see himself without her and he offer up dominion of this world to satan by taking and eating of tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Did they get knowledge of good and evil, you bet they did and it’s been down hill from then on.

7: And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

This is where it all started, this is where satan told the biggest lie there is. God said if you eat of this tree you will die, satan said you will not surely die.

Our Creator God wants us to obey His law, why because He knows it will keep us happy and living in peace even while living in a World of sin.

Let’s go on and see what happened when God found them after they ate of the Tree He told them not to eat of. Again look at chapter 3: verse 9

9: And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10: And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11: And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12: And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

Look at the first thing that sin did, Adam loved Eve so much he did not want her to die so he ate of the fruit, what love we would say right, now he is blaming her for everything, what happened to his love for her.

13: And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Now we see Eve blaming the serpent for what happened; is that not just like sin, everyone blaming someone else for what they did.

14: And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

So the Lord put a curse on the serpent from this day on he would scroll on his belly, but what about the Man and Woman, let’s see what God told them.

15: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

What a promises God gave to mankind, this tells me that God knew of the possibility that man might sin that man might of his freedom of choice eat of the tree. God had a plan, it was not His will that sin should enter into this world but if it did He had a plan in place to rescue man. I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Just what is God saying here enmity between who and what seed

16: Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17: And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18: Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19: In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Question: What was it that God wanted from the being that He created in His image and likeness? Only one thing and that was for Man to believe what his maker told him was best for him by obeying his master Law. Was it too much to ask of Adam & Eve to stay always from the one tree

Now can you understand why we suffer, why there is so much sickness, it is not God. God gets all the blame, it was Man that did not choose God, man Chose Satan instead of God. When Adam choose to obey Satan by eating of the tree he gave up ownership of this world, look at what the Bible says

Rom:6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Adam not Eve gave up ownership of this world when they chose to obey and yield themselves a servant to Satan.

What they told God was this: OK God I am going to do it my way from here on out so please back off and get out of my way I don’t need your help.!

So it’s not Gods fault that sickness, death and bad things, came into this world. God did everything possible to show mankind that He loved him, God put mankind is a paradise home with only one little restriction.

Now I ask you; is God wrong for what happened to mankind and for sin coming into this world. Is God wrong because you or I or a love one of ours is dying of some terrible sickness? Or that we are living in pain and suffering each day. God loves us each and every one of us, we were made in His image and in His likeness.

Christ and Family

Christ and Family

 

Romans 8:
35: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36: As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37: Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39: Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Oh my brother I hope you are starting to see bad thing happen to good people everyday, but it is not God who causes it to happen. It was because we choose to believe a lying devil over what God told us.

From the beginning all God wanted was the same that we as parents want from our children. For them to be obedience to us and do what we tell them to do, not because we are tyrants over them but because we love them and we know what is best for them.

Remember what we read back in Genesis 3:15: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Look at John:3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only beloved Son, that any one believing in him should not perish. God again does all He can do to bring back as many as possible of His falling children. Even if He Himself must come and die in there place to save them

God the Father did not spare His only Son Jesus but sent Him to this world to show mankind that He God still loves us and wants to be a part of our life if we will only turn from our sinful condition and be obedience to His Law

Look at what Jesus told the religious leaders when He was here on earth Matthew 5:
17: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18: For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

The Last time I looked out side heaven and earth did not pass away yet, so God’s Law must still be in effects. That is what Jesus said not me, so if the earth is still here Gods Laws are here for all who love Him and obey His teaching.

But the problem we have today is that people don’t want to do what God told them to do, that was Adam & Eve problem too remember. They too wanted to do it there way and God will just have to except it that way. But here is the problem God does not except it and will not, if He would not change His Law for His own Son He will not change it for you or me. Look at the Romans 6: 23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Not obeying or doing what God said will lead to not just death but eternal death. God does not want that for anyone Jesus came to save us from our sins and eternal death to show us how to live by God’s law.

The world we live in now would have been so different if only man would have learned to obey and keep God’s commandments. But rather then choosing God we chose Satan; it is not God but Satan who brings all this suffering on mankind.

Read the book of Job chapter 1 & 2 and see God does not cause evil on any on it is the works of Satan, but people like to blame God for it.

Look also at Revelation 12
12: Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Satan is mad because he knows his time is short and he wants nothing more then to destroy the people God loves and those who were made in the image and likeness of the God of creation.

We tend to all blame God when we get sick or when something bad happens but like I said it is not God who causes it, it is the devil. He was a deceiver from the beginning.

Read Revelation 12:
7: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8: And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

So you see even in Heaven satan was at work causing trouble and problems for God until the day came when God had to cast him out of heaven. So where did he go, to the only planet in all of the solar systems that he was ruler over, and he has done nothing but cause trouble and problems here on this world; and then he has people who God loves blame God for it.

Look at what one of the disciples told the Religious leader when they commanded him not to speak or preach in Jesus name. Acts:5:29: Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Who should we obey

In our world today people like to play Christian, they want to serve God but they want to serve Him there way. My friend when God tells us to do something he expects us to do it just like He told us to do it, with no deviation. Anything apart from that is sin and sin is what separates us from God.

A lot of Christians like to tell me oh those Laws were for the Jew’s not for us today. But then I ask why God gave the Jews those laws, why because they were God’s people. Ok so if they were God’s people back then and we are Gods people now and God does not change, as Gods people we need to be doing what God say to do and not what man or satan said to do. Am I right or not?

We need to be keeping the Laws God made for His people, right.

Our Father who is in heaven does not want for any of us to suffer because of sin but we live in a world full of it. But soon and very soon the Bible tells us that God will put an end to satan and all his evil angles. At the same time He will put an end to sin in this world. He will put an end to sickness, suffering, pain and an end to death.

Look at Nahum 1: 9: He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

Bad things happen to good people all the time. I am an Elder in my Church and I had cancer and the cancer came back in the same area in my sinus three times. I treated it the first two times but when it came back the 3rd time I said no more and so the doctors gave me 6 months to maybe a year to live if I am lucky. Luck I don’t believe in but God I do believe in. My brother found a place where they did only natural herbal treatment for people like me who are sick with cancer. That was in June 2006 and God blessed it so that I am still here some 8 years later. I live with a lot of problems but it is all from the treatment not the cancer. I don’t know the reason why God healed me and not others who were better men better Christians then I am.

All I can do is to thanks Him for what de did and pray for all my others friends who are still in treatment or just found out that they or a love one of there has some life threaten disease. Remember God did not do it nor did He cause it to happen, it was because of sin in out world and satan because he is the father of sin. From the day our cells conceive in our mother’s womb we start the process of dying. Why because of sin for God did warn Adam & Eve saying in the day you eat of it you will surely die.

Don’t despair my friend, because there is hope and that hope is in Gods Son who came to die in our place. For the Bible tells us

Look again at John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John:3:36: He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John:6:27: Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
Rom:6:22: But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Even thoe that had sinner and rejected God, God did not reject us who had choosing to accept what He did in our behalf, die for our sins. The God we serve is a God of love a God who would do anything for His children who believe and trust in Him and do what He has told them to do in order to have everlasting life with Him.

It’s so simple just like the test in the garden of Eden, Jesus said in the book of John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. Gods commandments don’t save you; His commandments only shows the world who you love, then Gods extends His grace because you have choosing to obey what He told you to do. You see what I mean it is so simple. In the Garden of Eden the test was one tree don’t eat of this one tree, today the test is will you obey by keeping my commandments. If you do, it will tell the world you love me and that I love you.

You will have trials in this life you will get sick in this life and you will die in this life but it is not about this life, it is about the next life. Read with me what God is saying in the book of Revelations

Look at Revelations 20
10: Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

We are going to suffer just like non believers and as we get close to the time of the end. Satan will put into the heart of evil men to cast some of us into prison but we are told to be faithful even unto death and God will give us a crown of life.

11: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Here is where a lot of Churches get confused because they don’t understand what the Bible is saying about a first and second death.

Rv:20:6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The first resurrection will be for Gods true believing people who have died, that is the first death, you understand we die from this world only once.

Rv:20:14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
The second Death: it is for all who have chosen not to follow what God said to do. It will be for evil men and women, who never believed in God. It will be for Pastors who lead people away from God truth, and for fake Christians who wanted both this world and heaven too. But sorry the Bible said in Luke:16:13: No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

1Pt:4:17: For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

My brother you might be hurting, suffering, in pain or maybe close to death or maybe some love one or good friend is having problems.

Don’t blame God put the blame on the one who caused all this, the one who lied to our first parent. Then read the Bible it is a book about God working with man trying to lead man back to His truth. When God says to do something, we must learn to do it exactly like God said to do it. No cutting corners

God said to keep Him commandments, then keep them, don’t worry about others who tell you, you don’t need to, do what God said not man. Acts:5:29: Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

I live in this world with a sick body from Cancer; I can’t do or enjoy all the things I once did. Some days or good some are bad, some are more pain some or less pain.

Here is the key: one day the life I live in thissick body will be over, one day I will stand face to face with my God and friend. That is where it will all matter, that is where God will judge upon the things He says to do and keep and the thing He did not say to do or keep.

Rv:21:8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

God is merciful because God is love; He wants that no one has to die the second death. But if someone by choice does not want to believe or do as He ask them to do, He God will not force you against your choice

God Bless you my friend; and if you are sick or someone you love or know is sick pray and ask God for His protection, His blessing, His guidance and understanding. Then move by faith knowing it was not God who did this it was because of a devil that hates you because you were made in the image of your creator God. Then except His will and follow His ways, just read about what Jesus did and how Jesus lived. Always doing the will of His Father, always helping someone else, always keeping the Commandments and always showing love to those who was hurting.

Miracles are they from God or Satan

Share

Have you even seen a miracle, how did you know it was a miracle. In our world today there is a lot of counterfeiting and so if it is in the world it is also in the Church. Are all Miracles of God (answer) can the devil also do miracles.

sick-childdanisfoundationorg[1]Let’s open the Bible the word of God and see what the Holy Spirit has to say about Miracles, let’s look at Revelation 16:  

13: And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.                                                     

14: For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

So Elder Tim you are saying that some of the miracles I have seen in my Church may not have been done by Gods Holy Spirit and that it was done by a devil. No I am not saying that the Bible is saying that, read it again in Revelation 16: 13-14, spirits of devils, working miracles. That is why we must study the Bible and not go by what we hear some preacher saying. The word of God can be the only truth that we can be sure is truth. Look at what the prophet Isaiah said while under the influence of the Holy Spirit. 

Isa: 8:20: To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. If what you hear in Church, in your Home, or in a bar room, if it does not agree with all that the Bible said from Genesis to Revelations there is no truth in it.

Come with me as we travel through the Bible God’s Holy Word to see how God lead the early Disciples in aiding the Gospel commission. 

Let us Pray!

Open your Bibles to the book of Acts and turn to Acts Chapter 20 verse 9-10

Acts 20: 9: And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. 10: And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.

Satin is always at work he does not sleep, he wants nothing more then to take as many people who were made in the image of God and destroy them. He know we are very special to God we are a one of a kind race living here on Earth. But instead of reflecting the image of God we are more likely reflecting the image of Lucifer. So what went wrong, our first parents believed what the Devil said over what God told them. Although this was not in the planes that God had for the people who was made in his image; He God did not leave us alone to die in our sins.

lesson07-16God had an emergency back-up plane, He loved His creation too much to just stand-by and watch them die.

After the young man fell out of the Church window it made no little disturbance in the meeting. Paul could see that the devil was at work and wanted to draw the attention from the words Paul was preaching; to the young man who just died 

Acts 20:

10: And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. 11: When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.  12: And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.

Wow what a Miracle and right there before everyone. What satan tried to destroy, God used as a blessing so that many other would believe!

How could Paul have done this, again we look to the Bible for the answer and to help us understand.

Corinthians: 12:

1: Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

Paul wanted to show the Church how much God loved them and that He would add them in there faithful walk with Him by these gifts God has giving to His true believers

4: Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

5: And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6: And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

7: But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8: For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9: To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10: To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

12: For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13: For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

14: For the body is not one member, but many.

So here we find that God gave to His people gifts, why to add them in the spreading of the Gospel. May times as Christian we want to shove down people throat the Gospel and make instance Christians out of them. But that is wrong, you never see that in the Bible, God people spoke the word and the word that was with God in the beginning the Holy Spirit refreshes the person. So you see we must first take care of the need and when they are ready and healthy again then bring them Jesus and they will be open to receive Him. Why because they will see in us the works that Jesus did.

Look also at the book of James 5:

James:5:16: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Wow the prayers of God’s righteous servants availeth much that is wonderful to know. The pray of faith by a righteous man who walk and talks to God, so the pray of faith is trusting God.

A number of years ago when I first came to understand Gods truth I was working as a Port Engineer taking care of 12 Offshore Supply Vessels. Some times I would have to drive all night to get to the Dock where the Ship came into. This one night I remember more then any because it was very foggy and I had a 6 hour drive ahead of me. The big problem was that the Supply Vessel was only going to be at the dock for 7 hours, so that say to me I need to hurry and get there.

As I drove I had my CB radio on trying to drive as fast as I could with all the fog. One of the problems I was having is I was getting tired because I worked all that day; I told my self I need to get there and did not have time to sleep. I got onto the back roads because I could get there faster but the fog there would only be worse. I did not know what to do so I said a prayer, why not, it was just a little while after I said that prayer that the fog lifted and it was a clear night. Wow I said but then I thought oh that was not my pray that the fog was lifted. But the more I listen to my CB radio and the people who were driving on the Main road I wondered, they was talking about how bad all the fog was. I called and asked them where they were on the highway because I am on the back road and I don’t have any fog. No one believed what I was saying, so I drove the next 5 hours with no fog until I got to the dock where the vessel was. I told them about how the fog lifted and I drove all the way here in less then 6 hours. They too did not believe what I told them.

But I knew it was God and he knew I needed to get to the ship and get there safe. This same thing happened to me many of times after and I would just thank God for it each time.

Take a look at Hebrews: 11:1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

A few years after that I was working as a shore side mechanic for a company called AMR in FreeportTexas. When the big refineries in that area needed to shut down they would need to rent some big air compressors from where I worked in order to keep pressure on the lines to keep them from shutting down. There was 4 of us mechanics and we would rotate weeks of going out at midnight to fuel up the compressors.

I remember one night I got into the fueling truck and headed off to get a load of Diesel before going into the refineries. I had notices that the lights on the truck were not all that bright but like everyone I just wrote it off in my mind as nothing. I was going up a high bridge and just as I got to the top the engine stop running, I tried to start it but there was nothing. So I coasted off the bridge and pulled over on the side of the road to see what the problem was. When I turned the key switch all I could hear under the hood was a clicking sound, and I knew what that that was bad. The reason my lights were going so dim was because the battery was not charging and going dead. Oh boy what do I do now was all I could think. I was not in the best part of town and there were two bar rooms up a block or so but I did not need help from anyone who was drinking all night. I found a phone and called every number to my office trying to get help but no one answered. I needed to get moving because those big air compressors were getting low on fuel by now. I call my wife and told her what had happened, but she was at home sick. Anyway I walk back over to the truck and tried the key one more time and the same thing. I remember sitting there and then I ask God, Lord I am in a bind and don’t know what to do. I need to get fuel into the compressors and soon but I am hear in a truck with a dead battery and no one will answer my call for help.

It was about then in my mind I could hear a voice saying try the key again, I wrote it off as me just thinking foolishness but I kept hearing it so to satisfy my mind I turn the switch and the truck started, wow I could not believe that. I did not want to turn the lights on for fear it would finish draining the battery, but I could not drive in the darkness. So when I turned the lights on wow I said I have never seen them so bright. I went back to the office and fill up with fuel from the storage tank but left the truck engine running. After I filled it I looked and said Lord keep it running so I can fill the compressors, and I did just that I ran into all three refineries and filled all the compressors up and drove back to the office and parked the truck. The lights were still as bright and the engine was still running good. So I thought to myself, you know it might have just been a loose connection. So I turned the engine off and tried to start it again and there was nothing. I turned the light switch on and the battery was so drained it look like a cigarette butt for brightness. I knew then what I just had was a miracle, God sent an angle to power up my battery until all my work was done. The next Moring when I came into the office I seen one of the mechanic working on the fuel truck so I walk over and said what are you doing. He looked and said man do you know who drove the truck last night, yes it was me. He looked at me and said you are one lucky guy, why I said, he said the alternator is burnt up and the battery is 100% dead. How did you use it last night, oh I said that was easy, angle power I told him as I walked away.

A Praying FatherMiracle, God hears his people in our time of need we are never along, He is right there listening to out prayers and needs. 

But remember not all miracles are from God, because satan can also do a deception that would look like a miracle to us human. Go to the Bible, as we read the bible this is what God said about satan, for they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, why to deceive. God is truth and Satan is a counterfeiter liar, what ever God does Satan will have one almost like it. Satan wants nothing more then to deceive you and lead you away from the truth and he will stop at nothing to do just that.  

Rv:22:2: In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

God is love and He wants to show you that you can trust Him, but to trust someone you need to get to know them. And how do we get to know God, by studying about Him, and the more we study the closer we come to Him. The closer you are to God the more you want to do His will because you will see in Him a God of Love and mercy. Jesus said John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Jesus goes on to say in John:15:10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. All God asked from the beginning was for His people to obey what He told us and believe in His word. Satan wants nothing more then to get between you and God and keep you from knowing the truth. So he has a counterfeit for everything that God wants to give us. God has a Religion; Satan has a Religion almost the same as Gods. God have commandments so does Satan but taking just a few words out in God commandment and changing them. You see, that way hardly anyone will see the change satan made. God said worship me on the 7th day of the week, Satan says why not worship God on the 1st day of the week because that is the day everyone else is doing it. All counterfeits to Gods truth.

As we get closer to the time of the end we see Satan working even hard to get as many people as possible to believe his lies. Look at Revelation 13:

11: And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12: And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Who is this end time beast power that Satan is working through that is exercising all the power of the first beast before him, and will cause the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast power, whose deadly wound was healed.

13: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14: And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Please don’t miss what the Bible just said (deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power)

15: And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

So the second beast will make laws to worship the first beast, and anyone who does not obey will be killed: read the book of Daniel chapter 3

Look with me at the description of this power and notices that he is lamb like in the beginning. A Lamb in the Bible represents Jesus, look at John:1:  29: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. Who was this Lamb John was talking about Jesus that is correct.

So this 2nd beast power will start off as a Christian Nation, but then something happens, it starts to change. It takes on more of a dragon influence and who does a Dragon represents in the Bible. Lets look at Revelation:12:9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The Bible calls the Dragon the Devil and Satan, so this end time power that was once a Christian Nation will set aside it christianly and become the Devil’s tool working his will, not Gods. How does he do that by being a counterfeiter and making it just a little easier for people to do what he wants and not God!

Look at the book of Genesis and start with chapter 3

1: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2: And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Did you see it, did you see how satan mixed just enough lie with Truth. For God said if you eat it you will surely die!  satan said “Ye shall not surely die” When God gives a command we must follow it to the very dot and tee of the letter.

5: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Here satan told the truth, yes we will know good & evil but look at the cost to all mankind. God in his love for man wanted nothing more then for man to just trust Him God, but He gave us a free will and we chose to believe what satan said over what God said.

Rom:6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

 He does not replace all of the Truth with a lie that would be too easy to catch, so what he does is to just mix a little lie in with the truth

Look at 2nd Corinthians: 11:

14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15: Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

What, did you just read that for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light and if he can impersonates an angle or Jesus doing Miracles what do you think the people of this world will do? They will all rush out to see and hear him and be healed by him.

Look at Matthew: 24:

23: Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24: For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25: Behold, I have told you before.

26: Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

 

God told us ahead of time that these things will come, so that we can be prepared and not be deceived by satan. Who are Gods true believes all who obey His voice and do the things He said to do. They will know the truth from the fake because they love the Lord and study and live there life in accordance to His commandment, that is why Jesus said if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Who ever you are reading this please study your bible, but not the way some preacher or some church do. Open your mind and forgot what you heard from others, let the Bible talk to you, listen for God Holy Spirit who will lead you into all truth.

Remember what God told to John to write in the book of Revelation 14:

Rv:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Mother letting Jesus take the wheelMiracles still happen everyday, and God blesses us everyday and when we are sick we can go to Him in prayer for healing, but we should always add in our pray; thy will oh Lord be done. God is in control; sometime we need to step back and let Him do the driving, He will saftly get us home.

I still live with many problems from the Cancer I had, but the Cancer is not the problem anymore it is the treatment I had. You know what they say if the Cancer doesn’t kill you the treatment will, how very true. But this I always say and this is the way I look at my life. I would rather die at the hands of a God that loves me then to be healed by a devil who hates me.

I pray that you too will study the Bible and the bible only and let the Bible lead your life and not a Church that claim they are following the Bible but don’t do as Jesus said. Miracles happen when Gods true people pray and I believe I am a living Miracle because of the many prayer of God true people

 

Bless you all for the miracle of life that God give to us everyday

You Are What You Eat!

Share

Did you ever hear someone say these words to you before?

What do they really mean?

People pigging outAre we to believe we are what we eat, or we eat what we are?

 

I have heard a lot of different sermons on this subject, but my question is this what does the Bible and the Bible only say about food?

 

We hear everyday someone preaching on the Radio or we see them on the TV, and most of the time what they are saying really sounds good. They are even giving Scriptures to back up the opinion that was made.

 

But you know what, “I found that you could take the bible and use a few scriptures and make it say whatever you want it to say”. “Is that not what satin does all the time?”

 

Because we form our own opinion about a subject, or because we were tart a subject in a way that you could never see truth, unless the Holy Spirit is your guide.

 

Well we are going to look at what the Bible say about Food, not what I say or the preacher on the Radio said about it.

 

We will let Gods book speak for itself on the matter.

 

First of all we need some rules:

 

Rule #1

The Bible and the Bible alone will interpret itself, it does not need mans help!

 

Rule #2

If in doubt see rule #1

 

How should we study the word of God?

 

First Let’s have Prayer:

You should never open the word of God with out first asking for his spirit to guide you into all truth

 

If you find something hard to understand you should never give up and except what the world said about it, keep searching till you understand the meaning.  

 

We are going to jump in head first by looking at the Book of Leviticus:

 

I will be using a lot of Scripture today and it may not be possible for you to keep up, so if you like I will make available free of charge to anyone a copy of this sermon.

Leviticus 11

1: And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

2: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

 

Here we have God saying to Moses, I am going to show you something Moses if you want to live a better life and a longer life, do what I tell you. There are beasts I have created that are ok to eat and there are beasts that are not ok to eat.

 

I am going to show you that there is a different between them.

 

3: Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

 

No need to be a professor to understand what that just said, right. God did say that what is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud among the beasts (Mammals) are OK to use as food. Is that clear?

 

4: Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

5: And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Pig6: And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

7: And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud;he is unclean to you.

 

God said that all Mammals as described above are not clean and you should not eat them. Is that clear?

 

Now God goes on to tell Moses the same thing is true of all I created in the Sea 

 

9: These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.

 

10: And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

 

When God said something is an Abomination people need to wake-up a smell the Coffee.

 

What is another word for Abomination, “eyesore, loathe, abhorrence, repulsive, detestation” do you kind of get the picture God was painting about what he thinks of man eating these things.

 

God said Moses I am not finish yet there is more we have to talk about things that fly.

 

13: And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

14: And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

15: Every raven after his kind;

16: And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

17: And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

18: And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

19: And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

20: All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.

 

These are all birds of pray and God said don’t eat them, they are not good for food.

 

21: Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

22: Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

 

I don’t know of anyone standing in line for a grasshopper burger, are better yet a grasshopper burger toped with locust. But God said there were clean and OK to use as food.

 

Matt 3: 4

And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

 

God goes on talking to Moses he said.

 

Leviticus 11:

23: But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

 God also told Moses, I created a Dog to be man best friend not on his plate for lunch.

 

27: And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

 

42: Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

 

Look good at the next scripture:

Who is telling us this “ Can man change what God said !

44: For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

 

God’s gave these requirements to His people His holy people. Back then God’s holy people were the Jews. Today God’s holy people are His true followers

 Man and his Wife walkingWhat does Paul tell us in 1st Corinthians 6: 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

We are not to believe that our bodies are ours to do what we please, our body belongs to God and they are giving to us for a short time here on Earth.

 

45: For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

46: This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:

 

Why do you think God gave us laws? If you know that giving your children too much food with sugar in it will make then sick, what do you tell them. Do you not make rules or Laws of what they can or can’t eat? God is no different; He knows what is good for our bodies and what is bad.

 

47: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

 

Are we still to obey these old laws today; this is the big question.

We here a lot of Christian preachers saying that they are out dated, they were for the Jew only, we Christian are not under the law so they don’t apply to us today.

 

Is that Scripturally True:

 

Let’s keep going to find the true answer to the question, remember I am not going to give you my opinion of the subject, I am going to give you all of what the word of God said on the subject and you will draw your own conclusion.

 

There is nothing I dislike more then hearing a preacher read the word of God and then say well it don’t really mean that it mean this, are it was for these people and not us, we are different.

 

Were the Jewish people, Gods holy people?

Careful of what you say now, are we today Gods holy people?

 

What makes the different!

 

They were Gods people then, and we are Gods people now, they were the church then, we are the church now.

 

The only different is the Cross of Jesus. They looked forward to the Cross; we look back at the Cross.

 

Lets doing a little digging here and go back to creation.

 

Does the word Meat mean Flesh food in the Bible? Let’s look at  Genesis: 1: 29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 

Does any one need a preacher to understand what we just read? What we read is God gave to man his food, and it was not the beasts’ (animals) of the earth, it was the fruit or meat of the fruit as the Bible calls it.

 

For this reason you will find many Christians who are vegetarian and not meat eaters.

 

The diet of man was altered after Sin entered into the Human family and man became so wicked that God had to make an end. 

 

Genesis 6

5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6: And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

7: And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

 

We are not going into the book of Noah, because of time; let’s just take a look at what happen.

 

We know that God told Noah to build an Ark because he was going to destroy the earth with a flood. God gave Noah the plan for the size of the Ark, why because he knew it would have to hold a pair of all the beasts of the earth.

 

Lets pickup on the story where God is calling the animals and they are going into the Ark.

 

Genesis 6

19: And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

20: Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

 

Let’s dig a little deeper here into what is happing right here.

Genesis 7

Deer and Cow1: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

2: Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

 

Did we just read that right, did God say Clean beast by sevens and un-clean by two.

Did God make a distinction between what animals were clean and unclean back in the time of Noah?

 

So why do we here men preaching telling us we don’t have to worry about those old Laws, we can eat anything we want, just put a little more gravy on it. It is ok to eat what God said is an abomination 

 

Were those laws for the Jew only and not for us today? Was Noah a Jew?

 

We have the same problem with the Sabbath, God said Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Preachers are saying that was for the Jew not for us, we can worship God on any day we want.

 

But yet we find God resting on the Sabbath in Genesis.

 

Genesis 2

1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3: And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested

 

We here preacher saying the Sabbath was for the Jews only, yet we find God gave it to our first parents Adam & Eve, Were they Jewish ?

 

God said Remember the Sabbath day, man said No Forget it, we go to church on Sunday. Who are you going to believe; God or your preacher?

 

God knew that all the vegetation would be destroyed on the earth, and he knew man would need to eat, so he permitted man to eat the clean beasts of Earth.

 

 It was not Gods intended food for man; he did not create our body to consume Flesh food. It was only a substitute after man Sinned.

 

This is the 3rd time we find God lowing the Food standard for man, did you know that.

 

Let’s look at the Facts

 

Genesis 1: 29

 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 

This is the first and best food God gave to Mankind, Is this correct, their more, lets look

 

 

Good food to eat 1Genesis 2: 9

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

Did you understand what we just read, in the garden there was a Tree of Life, this with the fruit of other trees was Man Food. The perfect mixture that could keep the bodies God created running forever and ever and ever.

 

Did you know that in each of us God created our bodies to repair themselves. It’s all there inside us; the problem is we no longer have access to the perfect mixture of food that was in Gods plan for man, Why. “SIN”

 

Science today has discovered that the body uses different compounds to aid in repairing itself. It get these compounds by the food we eat, it brakes down the food and absorbs the chemical. Then it uses the chemical in a microscopy way to aid in the repair of cells. But they all agree on one thing. That there is one Chemical Missing and they have no idea what one that one is. Could it be the Fruit we can’t get anymore “the Tree of Life”

 

Look at the next scripture:

 

Genesis 2: 17

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

 

So there was a Tree that gave Life, and a Tree that gave Death, would anyone like to guess which Tree man chose.

 

That’s correct we chose Death,

 

So we know the Hi octane food needed for man to live forever was removed because we chose to die rather then live.

 

What did God do next!

 

Genesis 3:

17: And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18: Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

 

God never intended for man to eat the herb of the field, or vegetables of the earth, that was our choice; guess what happens when you no longer had access to the Food God made for you.

 

Genesis 5: 5

And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

 

Conclusion:

  1. God created hi octane fuel for our body “ Tree of Life and the Fruit of the trees in the garden”. We will call this No# 1 Premium grade Fuel. If your body is running on this is will run forever.

 

  1. God substituted man food after sin interned by taking away the Tree of life and giving him the Vegetables as well as the Fruit of the tree. We will call this No#2 Medium grade Fuel. And man life went from Forever to about 900 years.

 

  1. After the Flood we again find God substituted man food by giving him permission to eat the clean beasts of the Earth. We will call this No#3 Low grade Fuel. And again what happen, man life went from 900 years to 500 to 300 to 200 to 125 to 70 years. Its all in the Bible read it.

 

All I want to do here is give you the facts from the Word of God and not my own opinion

 

Are we what we eat or do we eat what we are.

 

Now I am going to ask you to form your own opinion on this one.

If God gave permission to eat the low-grade #3 fuel “Clean Animal”

 

What would you call the Un-clean Animal; Extreme low grade #4 or #5 Fuel, now you understand why God said don’t eat them they are an abomination to you, “Don’t even touch them”

I hear a lot of good Christian people saying, in the New Testament we are told we can eat anything we want. Well that great my friend but you will never find that Scripture that said you can eat anything unless you take it out of the content it was written in.

 

Why because God’s people are still Gods people today, from Adam to Noah to Moses and the Jews and you and me who by Faith in Jesus are grafted in to the true vine.

 

God gave his Laws to our first Parents, and told there Children 2500 years later to Remember them. 1500 years later he came to this Earth to prove he Loves us and even died showing it.

 

As a Christian I can eat anything I want to eat, but I choose Gods way because I know that he would want me to keep this body running in good condition for as long as possible.

 

1Cor:6:19: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

 

My body is the temple where Gods Holy Spirit lives and I want to put only what God said to put in it. If the so called old laws were good enough for Gods people back then, they are good enough for Gods people now. God does not change and His laws are still binding no matter what man may say. Let the Bible and only the Bible speak, Gods Holy Spirit lead Men to write it and God Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and make clear what God is saying.

 

Most of you know that I had Cancer and it came back 3 times. I fought it with all the radiation and chemo’s, but it did not work. Then the last time I just gave it all to God and because my body was in better health then normal by eating the right foods God stopped the cancer from growing. I still test positive for NPC and my doctors can’t understand how I am still alive 8 years later. Then again most of them know nothing about the correct food that Gad gave to man.

 

STORY:  New Car

If you buy a new can what is the first thing you do, read the owner Manuel right. Why would do you do that?

 

Because when we buy something new we want to know what the Manufacture said about our new car and how to take care of it

The Manuel will tell us the type of Spark Plugs to best use and how often to change Oil and Filters where to put water and where not to put it, and most of all what type of Fuel is best for our New Car to keep it running at Maximum performance and keep all the internal part clean and working good.

 

Now we have a chose to make, we can do what the Manual said to do and keep our New Car in tip top shape, or we can through the Manual away, and put what we want into the car fuel tank, it just that simple.

 

You know it seams like we all start out making the wrong chose at first, look at Adam & Eve. Our first parents made a bad chose, but when they found out, they ask for forgiveness and God forgave them. So it was with our Fathers before us, so it is with us today.

 

When we finally realize that we make some bad mistakes in life all we have to do is say Father please forgive me, and he will. We may have to live with the result of the many bad mistakes we made, and that is understandable. So did our first Parents, but we can change our live and start living for Jesus today

 

I don’t know if this message will make you change your life style or not, or after hearing it what you will do. I pray it was a clear subject on the word of God dealing with what we should or should not eat; only you and God will know the answer to that.

 

The Choice is your!!!

Are you what you eat, or do you eat what you are?

I have changed my life style back to a vegetarian because I don’t like the taste of meat and because I believe God knows what the best things are for me to eat. After all who knows better but the creator.   

Remember God gave these laws to His Holy people, back then they were the Jews, today they are His true follower His true Church.

 

God Bless

Law & Grace

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.   

 lesson03-18

Sometime things are hard to see even if it is right in front of our eyes, but praise God he has giving us a Spiritual Mirror so we can not only see but understand his words. 

Story:    I once had a Boat named the Egabrag 1

You might ask what was so great about the Egabrag,it was no different then any other Vessel, but it had one of the most importance jobs in the Military working for the US Navy

Every day it preformed it job flawless, it never failed to do its job, too much was counting on it to fulfill its daily mission.

For almost 20 years it worked non stop, She was not much to look at but her Crew had great pride in running her

When she was decommissioned and I took her over, I just could not help but wonder, Who could of came up with a name like Egabrag 1 the name just did not made sense, until one of the Crew told me, people in California did not like a boat being called the Garbage 1   Egabrag backwards is Garbage         

Sometimes the Bible is like that; but just because we don’t understand a topic in the Bible it does not mean we should just skip over or pass it by, for it is by studying God word that we uncover the true meaning of the hidden truth berried deep in Gods word.

Let Us Pray

————————————————————

Are law’s importance?

Do laws put us in bondage?

Have you ever lived in a place where there were no laws?

What do you thing would happen to the USA if there were no law’s to govern the people?

 

Just think, if there were no laws; you could do whatever you want and no one would stop you. Except everyone else is doing the same thing as you, and there is no one stopping them either.

 

Do you see where a problem could come from?

 

What if I don’t like stopping for red lights, there are always a pain and turn red at the wrong times. So I am going to just drive straight through them from now on. I might not live long doing that; but remember there are no laws telling me I can’t.

 

Laws are not made to keep us from something good! They are made to keep us happy and safe. So everyone knows what to expect from the other person.

 

Were Gods Law’s to be a burden or a joy to mankind?

 

What about Grace if we have Grace Do we still need Law’s?

First we must understand What is GRACE?

We don’t have to earn it. It is the most valuable gift of all. The Scripture says in Ephesians 2:8, 9:For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Salvation does not come from any human effort. It is a free gift without money and without price, or let’s says with out cost to Mankind

In Revelation 5:9, the redeemed are pictured as standing before the throne of God, both the redeemed from the Old Testament times and from the New Testament times, singing glory to Jesus, the Lamb, “Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”

A great, fundamental truth is expressed here—the only way a sinner can be saved is through the blood of Jesus. Since the time of Adam, sinners have been saved only by believing and having Faith in Jesus.

If men are saved through faith in Jesus Christ, where does the Ten Commandment law come in?

Throughout all the ages of controversy between Christ and Satan, the devil has sought to destroy the authority of God over man by casting the law aside and by preventing knowledge of the truth about God’s law.

The enemy of Christ brings this about by rejection of the law; or a wrong concept or understanding of the dispensation of the law as opposed to the dispensation of the gospel.  This is what we call being one sided or not seeing the hold picture.

Satan could bring in the principle of salvation through works, and prevent the functioning of the law according to God’s design.

Kind of writing it out backward so that you see it but don’t truly understand what it is saying.   Do you see the ECARG & HTIAF  Grace & Faith

 

The role that the law fulfills in relation to the gospel is two-fold.

1.  First, it is God’s standard of what is right and true.  As a standard the law expresses the mind and the will of God, for in Psalm 40:8 it says, “I delight to do thy will, 0 my God; yea, thy law is within my heart.”

2.  Second the law also declares man’s duty to God, for in Ecclesiastes 12:13 we read, “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

How often I have heard Christians boast that they don’t care about those old laws of God. “Why”

 Because they hide behind Romans 6:14, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”

They say that since they are saved by grace, through the atoning blood of Christ, they don’t have to keep God’s commandments at all. Have you ever heard that theory?

BUT:  You can not take just one scripture from the Bible and make a completed doctrine, that my friend is a very dangerous way to live. Because when you live your life that way you are not truly living it for Jesus, but for what fits your life style.

In Romans 6:15, the very next verse in the chapter, Paul says, What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? Paul says God forbid.” The fourteenth verse has stated, “Sin shall not have dominion over us,” or “it shall not be our ruler.”

We are not under Sin or the condemnation of the law either, when we obey God.

Why?

Because we are saved by grace, But that does not license us to sin? “God forbid.”

 

When an individual is saved by grace, he is under greater obligation than ever before to keep the laws of God.

As it says in Romans 3:31, “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid; yea, we establish the law.”

 

Are we licensed to break the law of God because we are saved by grace and saved by faith? God forbid. “Yea,” he says, “we establish the law.” The law is firmer than ever in our lives.

Question?

Who is under the law today in your city? Those who have broken it; they are under the law, and in jail.

The man who keeps the law, is the man who is free today.

The law breaker is under the condemnation of the law and doing time in jail.

Right here let us stop a moment and read the definition of sin in 1 John 3:4. “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

Are we clear on this. When a man sins he has transgressed the law.

Who’s Law; “GOD”.

Every sinner has broken the law. What is sin? “The transgression of the law.” When a man sins, what does he do? He breaks the law of God.

There must be a law, otherwise he couldn’t break it. We are not under the law unless we break the Law.

 

I would fear to be called a minister of the Lord today and tell people it is ok to break Gods laws.

 

Matt: 5:19: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

How does God feel about man making his own laws and rules and teaching people to live by them instead of his commandment Law’s.

 

Matt:15:9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

Is there danger in not keeping God Commandments?

 

You might say; Lord I am saved by grace I was told I don’t need to keep those old laws.

 

The governor of the state has life-and-death power. A man has been sentenced and condemned to die. He is under the sentence of death. Friends intervene; they present evidence to the governor, special factors involved in this case—contributing factors as to why this individual was caught in this particular crime.

As the governor investigates the evidence, he feels that this man deserves clemency; so he uses his official prerogative as the head of the commonwealth. He takes his pen and dips it in the ink and signs across those condemnation papers, “PARDONED,” and then signs his name.

That condemned man, my friend, has been saved by grace, not by his works or by his goodness.

He was doomed to die, and being ever so good in that death cell would never, never in this world save him. That is very obvious.

In other words, after an individual has broken the commandments of God, he cannot be good enough to save himself. The wages of sin is what? Death. We have all sinned, so are under the sentence of death. And there is only one way of salvation, through Jesus Christ.

Now the condemned man is pardoned. He can hardly believe his eyes as he sees the kindness, the stroke of generosity and love shown by that governor.

PARDONED. SAVED. FREE. You meet the freed man a little later and he says,

“Wonderful what that governor did for me, and wonderful this new freedom of mine.

Now I can break the law all I want, for the governor set me free from the law and from the sentence of death. I am saved by his grace.”

Did the governor pardon him so he could go out and become a greater law breaker? Shall we who are saved by grace continue law breaking?God forbid.” We are under even greater obligation to keep the law because we are saved by God’s grace.

Matt:22: 36-40

36: Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38: This is the first and great commandment.

39: And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40: On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

Love the Lord thy God it is the first four of the Ten Commandments;

Love thy neighbor it is the last six of the Ten Commandments;

 

Do we find any evident of keeping the old Jewish Ten Commandment Law in the New Testament    Yes we do….

 

Matt:19:17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Mark:10:19: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

 

Luke:18:20: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother

 

Luke:1:6: And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

 

Over and over and over again we hear Jesus telling the people to keep his commandments.

.

If you really Love the lord, and want to show him that you Love him, then do what?

Show him you love him by doing what he tells you to do.

 

I have heard some say, “Those commandments were only for the Jews.” Then a Christian can lie and steal, and murder people, and do anything else that he pleases. Is that possible?

Jesus says in ” John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

It was because Gods Laws were broken that Jesus gave His life. If these were to be abolished, why not abolish them before Jesus came to die? Then His death would not have been necessary.

 

John:14:21: He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John:15:10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

 

Some people say, “Well, I can’t leave my church.” We’re not talking about church my friend.

We’re talking about following God. And if your church is in the way of you following God then you need to move out of it…….

Don’t look at the people. Look at the Light God is showing you.

We need to take one more quick glance here at what Jesus said. Matthew 7:21. “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

Now notice verse 22. This is an amazing statement by our Lord. “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?”

Oh yes, miracle worked in the name of Jesus. Good so called Christian people who refuse to do one thing, and that was to keep God’s laws. 

Don’t you see Christ’s answer now in verse 23. “Then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Oh, this is one of the most sobering passages in the Word of God, because we’re led face to face here with an understanding which we can’t escape—that it makes a difference to God what we believe and how we live.

 It isn’t enough to say, “Yes, I believe. I’m a church member.” Church will never get you to Heaven

 It’s a matter of how you live and what you believe about God that makes a difference.

Many will say, “Lord, we’ve cast out devils. We’ve done miracles. We’ve prophesied.” And yet, they will be lost.

It makes a difference what we believe. Anchor your faith firmly, my friends, to the rock of Scripture “GOD’s WORD” and nothing else.

Christian can you say you know Jesus and not keep his Commandments

 

1John:2:3: And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

1John:2:4: He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

That’s not my saying brother and sister, for it is written in the book called the Bible, which is none other then God word.

1John:3:22: And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

People are always looking for bargains, for special discounts. Some churches advertise, “Come to us, we will give you a bargain, 10% off of the Ten Commandments.” But will that stand in the judgment?

Just because some great churches tell you that they will make it easy and only ask you to keep nine of the Ten Commandments, is that sufficient? Will you pass in the judgment day?

Has any church the right to discount the commandments of God? How do we dare imagine that we are on the high road to heaven when we knowingly break any of God’s commandments?

Matt: 5:19: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

1John:3:24: And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

1John:5:2: By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1John:5:3: For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

 

So now we know that it is very importance to keep God’s commandments.

If you love God then who are you enemy with, That’s right the world.

For you can’t love God and the world!

 

What are we told will happen to God people because they love the Lord their God and claim to be his people. His people who keep his Laws and keep the testimony’s of his Son Jesus Christ.

 

Rv:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rv:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Rv:22:14: Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

If the world hated Jesus then you know it will also hate you, But don’t worry He Jesus will give you the power needed to obey

Some time ago one of the items of interest in the newspaper was about a cave-in in a mine down in Pennsylvania somewhere—I think you might remember it. There were some miners trapped but there was reason to believe they were still alive under ground.

There was no way to dig down through the mine shaft that had caved in so they were hoping the miners were off to the side of the main shaft in a little room in a horizontal shaft.

So they brought in a great drilling rig and started drilling down through that solid rock trying to get into that room where they felt they were probably entombed.

Hour after hour, day after day, while the world watched, virtually holding its breath, as the news media portrayed for us the picture of how they went down there 6 inches and then another foot and down finally to three feet.

The families camped at the mouth of the mine where the rescue operations were going on.

Finally the day came when that great boring rig bore through the ceiling of that room where the miners were trapped. Rapidly it was withdrawn and they lowered a microphone taped to a little speaker down that hole.

The man who was directing the rescue operation at the top spoke into his end of the microphone and said, “Are you alright? Are you alive? Are you there?!”

 

And then a voice came back from the heart of the earth. “Yes, we’re here. We’re alright.”

 

 A great shout went up from the rescue workers at the opening of that pit. Then the director said this into the microphone.What do you want the most?” There was a pause and then a voice came back, “FREEDOM.”

Oh friends, heaven is involved in the greatest rescue operation the world has ever known.

All the universe is watching. Day after day, week after week, year after year, for the last six-thousand horrible years,

God has been seeking to rescue those of us who have been entombed by the avalanche of sin.

What must it do to His heart by our procrastination, our idleness, our spiritual postponement of eternal things.

We send back a message and say, “Oh, we’re satisfied with the trinkets, we’re satisfied with the things, but thanks just the same.”

How shall we escape if we neglect so great a Salvation?

Have you every ask your self just what is GRACE anyway,

Jesus Praying for UsWell here it is in a nut shell

GRACE    “God’s Riches At Christ Expense”
