Is more than a name….
If Jesus ended the law (ten commandments) on the cross, as many so called theologians claim, then; its ok to kill, steal, lie, commit adultery or which "ones" did he eliminate ? Surely not the moral ones ? The simple answer comes from a "thus saith the Lord" making it clear not one commandment in the smallest way was removed and notice in this text when the commandments are done away with exposing the deception of today’s false doctrines.
think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
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.
But listen, here’s the reason for this false doctrine; the "one" commandment the "new commandment theology" wants to eliminate by this is the 4th commandment, the "7th day Sabbath". The very one God asks us out of love to remember (in hopes of return love and worship from mankind). That’s what this whole controversy is all about friends, simple and not complicated. Remember Jesus said ! But Satan wants to complicate and confuse the issues thus Babylon, and modern (spiritual) Babylon
Jesus said in;
Believe me that I am in the father, and the father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the father may be glorified in the son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
"if you love me keep my ("our" in this context) commandments".
Its obvious then, by virtue of not remembering the 7th day Sabbath of the law of love (Romans 13:9-10), the "new commandment theology" breaks its own law of love ‘only love’, and worse yet, they do this by accepting none other than a substitute day (as "Cain" now here is how this scenario fits) and this substitute Sabbath even has the pagan worship connection right in its name ‘Sun’day (i.e. Day of the sun).
Jesus is lord of the S’abba’th day, the Sabbath is the lords day, don’t let the confusion factor fool you friends (exodus 20:10), and he placed his name right in the middle of it "abba".
"worship" then, of the pagan or the creator, "is what distinguishes the true Christian in the end";
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, fear god, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of god, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write, blessed are the dead which die in the lord from henceforth: yea, saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Maybe this is why the "new commandment religion" do not wish to be identifiable after all ? Like olden Israel, it is "not" keeping the Law of God, it is "not" "keeping it" that leads to transgression and away from his holy covenant this is so obvious. I John 3:1-4 – gives us the bible definition of sin;
I John 3:1-4;
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the Law: for sin is the transgression of the Law.
I john 2:1-4 is a startling view of where we stand in relationship with god;
I john 2:1-4;
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous:
And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His Commandments.
He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
The answer to this controversy is so so obvious.
While I am at it; let me challenge you (those of you who dare to do away with Gods Law, and think to establish one yourselves) I challenge you to find "one place" in the bible where God condemned man for keeping "one" of His Ten Commandments (moral law) ? You won’t ! But you will find, just the opposite though throughout the whole bible, and yet you still say this is myth ?
Even the wealthy young man who couldn’t give up his riches, who asked Jesus the timeless question yet turned away grieved, (re mark 10:21) was "loved by Jesus" for having kept His Fathers Ten Commandments (and really friends they are Jesus’ commandments too ! Or we make Jesus and God disagree, and we know that isn’t true, so don’t start the new and old stuff or have you already forgotten math. 5:17-21).
Read Romans 3:31, 6:14-16,7:25,8:4 and compare it to all the texts you posted. What law is Paul in reference to here? The law of sacrifices ? God forbid, why no, the Law of the Ten Commandments, not circumcision and sacrifices etc., Paul is understood when he talks to the Ephesians and the Galatians etc. By those who know which law he is referencing, but is not understood by those who have been raised ignorant of the laws of God under "new testament" only theology, or the "new covenant (new commandment) theology obviously taking over the minds today by the comments I receive.
You see the problem today, and even back then is; (the honest bible student always gets this picture once explained); the unlearned wrestle with Paul’s writings concerning the laws of the bible (II Peter 3:15-16) because they don’t know the difference between the law "inside the ark" (the everlasting covenant, the everlasting ten commandments in unchangeable stone) and the temporary ones, hanging on outside of the ark (on paper, only in effect till Jesus came and fulfilled its types and shadows (this is "the law" hung on the cross to use the modern term) and this is the law Paul mainly addresses because the Jews were hanging on to it having rejected Jesus as the Messiah, so in their minds it was still in force (I admit Peter didn’t help matters at times either but he did learn in the end.
But friends, God wouldn’t do away with morals, nor His Covenant, why Jesus’ death actually establishes it (fulfills it in example and completeness, not completed it because its principals were no longer needed since it caused the Jews to fail) no, the Law is eternal and as with Jesus to be internal – outward expressions of internal principles, heart things etc. He died to exemplify).
Think about this; as a just God: would He condemn people to death for breaking the 7th day, He Himself wouldn’t even break in dieing,, and then alter that law as some say Paul does ? Why no, those who died under His command previously would raise up in protest and Satan would have just arguments. But friends, we need not argue, this change of the Sabbath, and how it was changed, is known to scholars. If you look at my attachments under "what’s new" for the month of May you will see who it was that altered the day of worship, and it wasn’t Jesus, nor any of the Bible writers, nor God "as the author" of it, who says; "I change not" !
David said "thy way oh God is in the Sanctuary", and David also stated ‘I know You don’t want sacrifices and offerings but You want inward (sacrifice) circumcision of the heart and mind (forehead) and life (hands)’ (I’m paraphrasing). And listen now it starts getting deep; it’s in the heart and mind the beast of Rev. 14 wants too to place "his worship" and "laws" until all the world is deceived as the scriptures predict.
"Love is", yes, the bases (fulfilling) of the Law; "love to God and love to mankind". God said these very statements ("new commandments" used as doctrines today) when He first gave the Ten Commandments (re Deut.6:5, notice these are old testament quotes ‘center column’ bibles), Jesus is merely quoting that premise again in His time (Math. 22:36-40) consider the last verse especially;
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
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.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Why did He say them this way then, if they aren’t "the new commandments?" It was like a new commandment, a new principle, to the people in His day, for the Jews had made the Law of God of none effect (re Math. 15:3-9,18-19), and obviously it has happened again (as predicted) today. For it seems like "myth" to those who do not have the faith of Jesus.
As I’ve said; we’ve done the same thing today the Jews did, and we can’t even see it, and for that very reason soon the law will be taken down from even the church walls as it has from the schools, because the Sabbath is just to confrontational, just to cutting to the conscience and doctrines of modern Jews (Gentiles so called).
But friends, the Sabbath, is a sign of not only the end time people, but the people of God throughout the ages "it shall be a sign that I am the God who Sanctifies you" (Exodus 31:13) (the law then is connected with Sanctification).
Paul, setting the basic principles of the law before he goes on to the hard to understand parts said; to the mixed congregation in Rome, (Romans 2:13) if we hope to be justified "we" had better be doers of the law not just hearers (the law then is connected to Justification).
Jesus said (Rev. 22:12-15 ) as He comes with His glory (the law is connected with Glorification "reward" then) as He comes to pass His reward on to the waiting saints they are they who do what ? "Who keep the Commandments of God and have the Faith of Jesus" too. What else did He say ? He comes with "His" reward to give who ? "every man according as his work shall be", as if works of some kind are important.
Works in this context is obvious as He concludes His end time call; "blessed are they that do (not just keep) His commandments that they may have right to the tree of life…" then He turns and points to the commandment breakers…..
Jesus said to the young man, He loved at first, we read about a minute ago, who ask Him honestly "what must I do to be saved", what was Jesus’ response ? He didn’t give him a lecture on works vs. Faith or present a case, like I am responding to here, against the law, no He simply and in harmony with the whole bible said; "if ye want to enter into life keep the commandments" (math. 19:17) and He quotes right out of the ten commandments leaving no room to argue.
My friends, there is obviously two doctrines abreast and rising to the surface in these end times, each using the Word to make their case, and the most popular always wins because its what we are schooled in, and Satan pulls a veil of deception over the truth so that its confusing and contrary to what we have been taught. But I ask, beg you, when, as you preview the times past; was the true religion ever the popular opinion of the day? And, how long did it take Israel to forget the God of the Exodus and return to transgression ?
There are a wealth of texts supporting the eternal Law of God, from before the fall of man when the Sabbath was instituted – before sin mind you, to the last plea of Jesus in His last book Revelation. The evidence is there, and clear to the real bible student, the problem is; we find change impossible; for as the rich young man, we have a lot invested, sometimes PhDs and MD’s and reputations etc., And we walk away from truth as if we have blinders on and didn’t even see it, or worse, we have been deceived by the beast power.
Only the Truth, as it is in Jesus, can set us free. He said "I am the way, the truth, and the life" in that order !
Follow after Me He says (as the saints pictured in Rev. 14 follow Him), be like Me He pleads, and friends if we want to, we will do His works and we will be distinguishable if only for the works sake. Now I ask you the big question, the punch line; "who’s works are they really ? " Jesus wants to come and live in us to do the will of the Father. Who stops him then ? "our works" !
The works mentioned in Rev. 22:12 are accepted by God because, they are in reality, Jesus’ works through us. Scripture can’t make it any more clear.
Can we find the last day remnant people of Revelation 14 who keep the Commandments of God (a distinguishment) and have the Faith of Jesus (the distinguishment) ?
By Gods Grace (power to do and will) yes !……yes !……yes !
We must, if we are to escape the overwhelming deceptions of the "end times"
May God open our eyes and hearts is my prayer as I have no other ulterior motives…..
