It does not get any clearer than this,"THY KINGDOM COME"
Let No Man Deceive You ~ Part # 1
IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS
“LET NO MAN, STEAL YOUR CROWN by JUDGING YOUR FAITH"
by Chaplain Jimmie Warren
This article shows all our beliefs from the Lord himself given unto me over these last 4-5 years and are for you to study from your own Bibles to prove that religion and doctrines of men have destoryed the church from with in it'svery own self.Satan always starts from the head and lies to the whole body to as he lies to us from the men and women behind the pupit.Read my other article "Why so much hate from church leaders?"
I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT WE DO NOT HATE ANYONE FOR THE WAY THEY WORSHIP NOR WHAT DAY THEY WORSHIP ON BUT WE ASK FOR THE SAME JUDGEMENT FOR WE THINK ALL DAYS ARE UNTO GOD AND JESUS IS OUR SABBATH A HEWBREW WORD MEANING TO REST !
This work is being Judged on why I teach the way I do and of the Freedom the Lord has shown me? So with many scriptures from the Bible I will try to show the light of the Lord Yeshua and the way he showed me to be free. FREE from the Old Law and to be truly free in Jesus Christ our all loving son of God.
This article of truth is for those who are not blinded by the Vail of Moses and Laws! Those who say It is wrong to think in SPIRITUAL LAWS needs to read this article again "WITH AN OPEN MIND" for we all know the 10 Commandments and that they are to be written on our hearts and minds and we joy in the Lord who said Love God with all your heart,soul,mind and all your being and Love your Nehbior as you love yourself, by keeping these two laws,you have fulfilled all the law" JESUS / Yeshua is all and all, therefore FAITH has saved us who believe.
Those who think the must follow the OLD TESTAMENT ISRAEL NATIONS LAWS ALL 613 WHICH INCLUDE THE TEN LAWS GIVEN TO MOSES FOR THE TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL Then we say keep them but leave us to be free in Christ Jesus for HE HAS SAVED US ALL THROUGH HIS BLOOD. AMEN
"For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son" (John 5:22) KJV
You see when rules and days become more important than relationships or when laws are more important than love, or when the size of your steeple or how high the cross is on your church becomes more important than your love for God or your compassion for another human being is, we can expect God breaking through our self-righteousness. You can’t pay your way into God’s kingdom no matter how much money you give to the church.
May this be your light switch to a new and wonderful life in the Lord! If you are a Christian, you are required to teach others. Oh, yes, read the parable of the talents. Each person is to do in accordance with their several abilities.
"But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." (Galatians 3:24) KJV
"For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightiest be justified in thy sayings, and mightiest overcome when thou art judged." (Romans 3:3-4) KJV
It is imperative that you allow the Holy Spirit to cultivate these gifts in you in order that you may be proved and approved for the pastorate or whatever capacity God is calling you to. : WE do not of ourselves claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us to be ministers of a new covenant, not in a written code but in the Spirit; for the written code kills, but the Spirit gives life." (2 Corinthians 3:5-6) RSV
"And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;" (Eph. 2:16-19) KJV
Paul said “We ourselves are Jews by birth, and not Gentile sinners, yet we know that a person is not justified by the works of the law but by the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. We, too, have believed in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law, for no human being will be justified by the works of the law. Now if we, while trying to be justified in Christ, have been found to be sinners, does that mean that Christ is a minister of sin? Of course not! For if I rebuild something that I tore down, I demonstrate that I am a wrongdoer. or through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ. I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.(Eph.2 :15-21)
But notice what the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. Sons of God You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise (Gal. 3:22-29)
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." (Rom.3:20) KJV
"But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:" (Romans 3:21-22) KJV
"But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ." (Eph. 2:13) KJV
So who is it that is made nigh by Christ’s blood? Do you believe the word of God (Bible) or just follow whatever is said at your church? Remember that before Yeshua Messiah went to the cross, there was only two groups of people: the Jews and the Gentiles
"For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;" (Eph. 2:14-15)
What happened to the law of commandments contained in ordinances at Christ’s death?
"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it." (Colossians 2:13-15)
This is the most important article given to me from the Spirit of God and is extra long so, Please take the time to study with an open mind and use your own Bible, look up each scripture to prove this for yourself or not. I am not trying to change what you believe but, what the New Testament shows, just take your time and the light of truth will open your eyes and get rid of that veil of Moses which is covering your eyes and like it did to me for years, this Article will set you free.
DO NOT PUT YOURSELF OR ADVISE OTHER’S TO LIVE UNDER THE LAWS OF DEATH?
When you read your Bible, have you ever noticed that Jesus never condemns anyone except the religious leaders of the time? When they came to him and asked why he ate with tax collectors and whores, Jesus told them that the well do not need a doctor. (Matt.9:12 and Luke 5:31) Jesus was trying to tell them that those who did not know the word of God needed to hear God’s plan to save the world. Jesus preached that if they would only believe what he was telling them, then they would be saved.
Now one young man came to ask Jesus what else he needed to do to be saved. He had kept the law all his life and did not want to miss out on salvation, so he asked again what he must do to be saved. (Matt. 19:16-20) Jesus’ reply was shocking to the pharisees. He said, he who believes in me and the one who sent me shall be saved. (Romans 10:9) Where is all the law stuff??
Look in the Bible yourself in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. They all have the message there. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son so you and I could be saved. (John 3:16) That’s GRACE folks, not LAW.
Jesus’ death means nothing if we can save ourselves by keeping some written law. Jesus even tells the people that the law is a curse to man and that no man can keep the law, not even the priests in the temple.
Today some of our churches are still trying to get us back into bondage. They want us to keep special holy days, to eat or not eat certain foods, to wear what they deem fit, to drive the appropriate car, to wear our hair at just the right length, etc. Where does the Bible say to tell my people what to wear? Where does it say to lord it over my people until I get back?
Why do ministers insist on preaching about giving money to this cause or that cause? The Bible clearly says what you receive freely, give freely, doesn’t it? (Matt. 10:8) Now, everyone knows, or should know, that it takes a certain amount of money to run a church, so everyone should give as God has blessed them to give. Paul says we should give from our heart. God loves a generous heart, and it is true that you cannot out give God. (II. Cor. 9:7) Come on people, where is your heart? If you think, "Do I have to give my hard-earned money to that church," then you don’t get it!
The churches of today are always trying to outdo the other church down the street, so they plead for more money. If every saint would help his fellow man, we could reach the world with the message of Christ.
Too many ministers want to build their own ministries to be world famous. Then they get so wrapped up in doing the work that they forget who they are working for. JESUS is our boss, and if he wants you to do bigger things, then he will provide for your needs without pleading the money out of people who don’t want to give it anyway. Remember, if God is behind you, then you will get the job done with all the money you need.
I don’t understand all these churches preaching about old laws that Jesus took to the cross with him. He did this so it wouldn’t be hard to make it into God’s kingdom. He said he did not come to do away with the law but to complete it. (Matt. 5:17) Jesus is the only man who could keep the law perfectly.
We need to stop here and think..."Why would the Son of God come here to hang on a tree and bleed to death so we could live forever."
Why would he make laws so hard to keep that if we even try, we fail. (Gal.3) Is this a loving Father? Does any of this make sense? People wake up. Read what your Bible says about salvation.
"over and over that he who believes in him shall be saved, not he who works his way up the ladder. (Eph. 2: 8-9)
Remember what Paul said in (I Cor. 13:1-13). If you keep all these things and don’t have love, you may not even be in the kingdom of God.
Jesus said he gives two new commandments. These are to love God with all your heart and to love your fellow man as you love yourself. (Matt. 22:37-40) This is all the law we need to keep.
Don’t let your pastor bring you back under the old law. Read what Paul says in these books of the Bible: Ephesians, Galatians, and Colossians. These are three books of your own Bible that you need to read to be truly free in Christ Jesus.
I hope in some small way that the truth is here for all of you. Get your Bibles out, wipe off the dust, and read how simple salvation really is for you and me.
“Tell me, those of you who want to live under the law: Are you really listening to what the law says? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave woman and the other by a free woman. Now the son of the slave woman was conceived according to the flesh, but the son of the free woman was conceived through a promise. This is being said as an allegory, for these women represent two covenants. The one woman, Hagar, is from Mount Sinai, and her children are born into slavery. Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to present-day Jerusalem, because she is in slavery along with her children. But the heavenly Jerusalem is the free woman, and she is our mother. For it is written,
"Rejoice, you childless woman,
who cannot give birth to any children!
Break into song and shout,
you who feel no pains of childbirth!
For the children of the deserted woman
are more numerous than the children
of the woman who has a husband."
So you, brothers, are children of the promise, like Isaac. But just as then the son who was conceived according to the flesh persecuted the son who was conceived according to the Spirit, so it is now. But what does the Scripture say? "Drive out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman must never share the inheritance with the son of the free woman." So then, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman but of the free woman.(Galatians 4:21-31)
"And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unrecoverable in his sight" (Colossians 1:20-22) KJV
"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law." (Rom 3:28-31)
The Ten Commandments are loving warnings written on our hearts and minds, they are there to protect us from harm. They are not a set of stone-cold regulations imposed on us by some divine policeman. The Decalogue is literally “The Ten Words” according to the Greek roots: DEKA, ten, LOGOI, words. Ten profound spiritual revelations spoken to us by a loving God to keep us from what will harm us. Ten spiritual paths that help us grow more fully and deeply human in all of our relationship with God our Father, with our fellow human beings, with creation, and even with ourselves.
Now for those who judge about days of the week concerning Saturday Sabbath or Sunday the Lords Day and about going To Church or not, Does It Really Matter? You decide for yourself,forget what you where told and read about it in your own Bible! Amen
Today the majority of People go to church on Sunday a few go on Saturday, most have Bible studies during a night of the week sometimes two, but what does it matter for those who argue Saturday Sabbath or Sunday Sabbath or Day of The Lord services?
Going to Church is not keeping the Sabbath, no matter what day you go! Better go back to your Bibles and read it from the beginning, God made the Sabbath a holy day for rest--rest is not-- “ getting the family up and dressed and hauled off to some church building to listen to some minister saying “we have more truth then all the other churches who keep the wrong day unto the Lord God?” Heard that one enough times haven’t you? Let us look at what the SABBATH is meant for and which (day meaning) is more important to Almighty God, Saturday or Sunday, after all HE made the Sabbath for rest not for mans religious holy -day or as a holiday as some think!
God made the heavens and earth in six days, how do we know if these were 24 hour days or thousands of years, we don’t! See one day to God is as a thousand years and a thousand years are one day to our Lord, so, we are not sure about how long these first seven days were, much less if the first day was on a day we call Sunday, Hum? The Bible which was written hundreds of years later was given to Moses to write about from God? The Sabbath is talked about in the first book: “Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” (Gen 2:1-3)
Do you read anywhere about the 7th day Sabbath commanded to be kept by Adam and Eve any where here? Saturday nor Sunday nor any of the days of the week we name and keep today.
HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER after Adam and EVE, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE GIVEN TO MOSES for him to give to the 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL TO KEEP ( are you from any of these 12 tribes or are you just a gentiles ? They would have these LAWS to live by and worship God by, UNTIL THE MESSIAH CAME -Jesus–Yeshua Messiah did come and the Jewish men and priest did not recognize him!
Have you ever thought about what the rest of Mankind was doing or following during this time from Adam to Moses? Most preachers do not know what to tell you about the rest of the people on earth during this time, some even teach most people will all be lost because an all loving God left them out to die without knowing these laws? Make since to you?
The Bible does not tell or talk about the rest of mankind because the Bibles Old Testament was given for laws to live by for the 12 tribes of Israel, who didn’t know God or his laws, or what any of them meant or where they pointed toward? The Messiah “ YESHUA-JESUS “HE bleed and Died to finish the Laws of the Old Testament and HE was the only man who kept them all! JESUS made the NEW TESTAMENT for all of us today to live by in faith!
The Ten Commandments of the Old Testament are to show man what sin is, we are to keep them by the Spirit in us today! In the New Testament which was written 50-60 years after Jesus died, said the Law that was cut on stone would be put in our minds and in our hearts after receiving the Holy Ghost and so as you can see, they are Spiritual Laws we want to keep by the Holy Spirit living in us.
We are all children of God, with all the rights of full heirs! Our faith is expressed in our baptism of Fire which declares to the world that we are God's children. We have chosen to be clothed in Christ and his righteousness and do not depend on earning our own salvation by trying to keep the old law which was flawed and fulfilled by Christ hanging on the cross taking all sins upon himself. He did this so we could be with God the Father and be cleaned by his own’ blood. He is our salvation and hope. He is our life and strength. He is our older brother and Savior. He is our Lord of Lords and King of Kings our all in all and Yeshua Jesus is our everything. Amen
When God gave the Ten commandments to the 12 tribes of Israel, He was giving laws to those who had no laws or who did not even know who God was for more than 400 years. Notice God did not tell the rest of mankind these laws What happens to this Pagan and gentles? Are they all lost forever and burned in a lake of fire because the Almighty didn't give them the same laws?
As you read these scriptures remember they were given to the Twelve Tribes of Israel and to those with them, because they had no laws and didn’t know God as they left Egypt and went into the desert with Moses’ -Read the whole story in the book of Exodus
(Exodus16:26) Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be none.
WHEN IS THE FIRST DAY?
(Exodus 20:8) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. VS.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: HOW DO YOU MAKE A DAY HOLY? IS GOING TO ANY CHURCH EVER MADE A CERTAIN HOLY OR NOT? NO
(Exodus 20:11) 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. ANY WHERE ABOUT GOING TO A CHURCH SERVICE HERE? NO
DID GOD MAKE THE FIRST DAY OUR PAGAN SUNDAY THE FIRST DAY OF HIS WEEK? NO
(Exodus 31:15) Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. And on and on and on...It is a holy day, it is a day of the Lord ,It is also for man to rest as God rested.. ANY WORD HERE SUNDAY BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK, TO AUTOMATICALLY MAKE SATURDAY THE 7TH DAY ? NO
Ask yourself these questions before just going along with a church who keeps the 7th day today? How do they know when GOD made His first day to begin on the day we call Sunday?
According, to keeping the Sabbath of the Old Testament (7th day) of the week, you can not go out to restaurants, because your making the people there work on the Sabbath, it only seems logical that you can’t go to the store to buy anything, or get a gas station for gas or, a drive- in for a soda, or stop the ice cream truck guy to buy ice cream on a hot Sabbath day–right?
Saturday, Sunday, How about FRIDAY? My work week used to start on Saturday, so Friday being my seventh day was a Sabbath unto the Lord. This could turn into a really dumb argument, and does not matter if Yeshua is your Lord and Master, for HE IS THE SABBATH. After all is said and done, the solution is to: Work six days and give day seven to God, for worship, and to yourself rest(Sabbaht means rest )
Going to a Church, every Sabbath is a way to get folks to go to church ( MEN’S tradition) Something you cannot get people to do on their own these days. No, it is not mandated in the bible for a certain day, After Christ came but... traditions are useful. Just don't tell people that they will be sitting with Satan in HELL -FIRE because they missed church on Saturday or Sunday. Sabbath is not about going to any church NO COMMANDMENT TO GO TO CHURCH PEOPLE, THIS IS PURE RELIGION OF MEN, WANTING YOU TO BE SLAVES TO THEM and LAWS! Those who claim to keep Gods laws must not read the whole Old Testament "If you keep the law then you MUST KEEP THEM ALL? The Old Testament has love 613 laws to keep, which the Jews try to obey even now but, with no Temple they themselves cannot keep the whole of the law. Break one ,break them all?
What about all the other nations of the world in that time? Lost forever? Really? An all loving Father GOD would not kill them for laws he gave would HE? NO!
They who didn’t have these Laws, were they all just condemned to be lost forever in hell? Millions lost because God didn’t give them these LAWS? Where does it say they are all lost? Oh! by the way some teach this even 85% of their own flock will be lost and burned? Think about this really hard! WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM BACK THEN OR RIGHT NOW who do not know the LAW?
The word “Sabbath” again just means Rest!”AND GOD RESTED FROM ALL HIS WORK ON THE 7TH DAY DID HE REST” So when was the first day of Gods work again?
God made a day for man to take time to rest and God made it Holy but, He did not make it a day to go to church and socialize with people! Most church people talk about everyday woes, or what work was like all week, and so on, so how is this Holy unto God? What does most church people do after their short sermons and singing? Answer: Most go to have coffee and a snack, visit and talk, then after an hour or two, they go home to their regular life. Does this sound like they are resting or keeping the day Holy does it?
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, it is NOT About GOING TO CHURCH anyway AS most try to teach us today! Again the Ten Commandments was directed to the 12 tribes of Israel and is not for the Gentiles or Pagans or the rest of the world at the time code of laws that was written during Moses Time!
Here is another interesting verse “On the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath. ( Leviticus 23:39) (Jews call all their holy days Sabbaths) NOT JUST THEIR 7TH DAY!
“But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God.” (Deuteronomy 5:14) Many days were called Sabbaths not just the Israelites 7th day, which is really Friday our time? The Jews never named their days?
The Sabbath day meant Freed from daily work for man to rest and to keep Holy unto God. The Israelites had the opportunity on this day to meditate on God's Word, individually and as an assembled congregation. It was on the seventh day that God rested after creating the world, (did God Start with Sunday as the FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK to create all things? Can you prove Saturday was the 7th day without proving when the first day of creation was? - RELIGION PEOPLE NOT SCRIPTURE! .
Were the men of the old testament made to keep the 7th day anywhere before Moses came down off the mountain of God and gave the law to the 12 tribes of Israel? See if you can Find it being kept before the book of Deuteronomy or Exodus in your own Bibles?
The word Sabbath just meant to rest. (Is not a going to church day?
“The Sabbath of rest” was given the promise of God's goodness in providing not only bodily gifts but also of the perfect peace and rest for the world through the Messiah. God made the Sabbath for man, not man for the Sabbath, God never meant for man to be a slave to the 7th day of the week which we now call Saturday. Going to church on a certain day is totally man made day and not holy to God either way. RIGHT?
Can anyone prove when the first day of the week was in creation? ANSWER: NO
Here is another way to see the truth of the Good News of Jesus Christ /Yeshua Messiah Amen!
When most people think about God’s law(s), they usually think of the Ten Commandments and the sacrifices. The law, though, includes many more rules than just these few. Jewish scholars have determined that there are 613 separate laws that God told the Jews to follow. Not only that, but the first five books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) are collectively referred to as "the law".
"Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen." (Deuteronomy 27:26) KJV
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." (James 2:10) KJV
How much of God’s law did the people have to keep in order to be seen as innocent in God’s eyes? What is the result of breaking one law? So under the law, was any person better than another in God’s eyes, or were all equally guilty, no matter what they had done?
"What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God." (Romans 3:1-2) KJV
Who was the law – the oracles of God – given to? Were the oracles of God ever given to anyone who was not a Jew?
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28) KJV
According to this verse in Galatians, does the group "Jew" exist anymore, in God’s eyes? So if the group "Jew" is no longer in existence, and the oracles of God were given only to the Jews, is there anyone on earth today to whom the oracles of God (the law) still applies?
"Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." (Romans 3:19-20)
According to ( Romans 3:19,) to whom does the law speak? Whom does the law declare guilty before God? What knowledge does the law give to people?
"But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." (Galatians 3:24) KJV
According to this verse in Galatians, what was the law’s "job"? From what we learned earlier, the law teaches us certain specific knowledge. This verse says that the law is the teacher. Which knowledge is it that the law teaches?
How long does the verse in Galatians chapter 3 say, that the law would be in effect? This verse refers to faith "coming" and being "revealed". Would you agree that this makes it sound like faith is being personified?
In (Hebrews 12:2) we read "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…" Without the added word, ‘our’ (see footnote), the verse would read "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of faith".
Would you agree that from this verse, it sounds as though Jesus is the personification of faith? So if Jesus is the personification of faith, when, according to (Galatians 3:24) was the law to end?
Above statements From the article “There is No Bad News in the Good News New” by Breanne Dyck
All Praise to God for He is Great and All some Thank you Breanne for your great article explaining what the Good News is.
LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU” Part # 2
Now for those of us who live in the New testament church and Yeshua /Jesus Christ of today let’s see about keeping Saturday or Sunday does it matter which day you keep?.
The Ten Commandments were part of the old covenant. Jesus was not in conflict with the old covenant as the priests, scribes and Pharisee's of the day suggested. And lest people think that Jesus came to bash the law and prophets of the Old Testament, Jesus Himself stated that “I did not come to destroy the law and the prophets. He came not to destroy, but to fulfill” (Matt. 5:17).
Now the New Testament plainly tells us that Jesus fulfilled the law. What does it mean to fulfill something? It means to complete something. Jesus did not do away with it, but he finished it. Jesus Christ living a sinless life and when He Became the sacrificed Lamb for all our sins and when He Was raised from the dead defeating sin and death, He became Our High Priest, He is Our Sacrifice, He is Our Temple, He is Our Sabbath rest, Jesus/ Yeshua is our finisher! We are completed in Him Amen
To be in right standing with God, the New Testament no longer requires the old covenant way of life. When Jesus fulfilled the old covenant, He himself became the New this is the SPIRIT OF THE LAW! Right standing with God comes through Jesus Christ alone. The law made us slaves to sin. Jesus came to set us free from this slavery. His power over sin and our welcome into his kingdom is what we call GRACE. What the New Testament says to all who have Faith: First we must believe the Bible? The word (Bible), inspired, in the original Greek language in which it was written, means "GOD-BREATHED." This means the Bible is the breathed words or God spoke through those whom he chose to revile his word. As a result the Bible has many benefits in it. Paul say's again "The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; It straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God's way of making us well prepared at every point. Fully equipped to do good to everyone." (2 Timothy 3:16) TLB Bible"
Yes the Apostle Paul tells us " The man without the spirit does not accept the things that come from the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned."
(1 Corinthian 2:14) NIV Bible
You see without God's Holy Spirit, natural man cannot understand because the Bible is not of man but is directly from God." As we grow spiritually, we learn new things from God and become his children and heir’s through Yeshua Jesus! The Holy Scripture (the Bible) is the inspired Word of God! The faithful witness to the gospel, and the true and an accurate record of God's revelation to humanity. As such, the Holy Bible Scriptures are infallible and are foundational to the church in all matters of doctrine and godly living.
(2 Timothy 3:25-17; John 17:17; 2 Peter 1:20-21 ) KJV Bible
God's Way of Accepting People
“Now we see how God does make us acceptable to him. The Law and the Prophets go tell how we become acceptable, and it isn't by obeying the Law of Moses. God treats everyone alike. He accepts people only because they have faith in his son Jesus Christ. All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. But God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins of breaking the law. God sent Christ to be our sacrifice. Christ offered his life's blood, so that by faith in him we could come to God. And God did this to show that in the past he was right to be patient and forgive sinners. This also shows that God is right when he accepts people who have faith in Jesus. What is left for us to brag about? Not a thing! Is it because we obeyed some law? No! It is because we have faith in one Man Jesus Christ our YESHUA MESSIAH.
We see that people are acceptable to God because they have faith, and not because they obey the Law. Does God belong only to the Jews? Isn't he also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, he is! There is only one God, and he accepts Gentiles as well as Jews, simply because of their faith. Do we destroy the Law by our faith? Not at all! We make it even more powerful.” (Romans. 3:21-31)
“You are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises. (Romans 9:4)
Through Yeshua Jesus Christ “All things are yours.” (1 Corinthians 3:21)
“Be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Hebrews 6:12)
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son” ( Revelation 21:7)
For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit. Live by Spirit of the Law!
“Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death. But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.”(Romans:7:4 -6 )
“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did :sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit ( Rom 8:1- 4 )
When Sabbath Spirit lives in us, we don't need a law to guide us. The Spirit produces the character that God desires and that is well beyond what any law would require (Gal. 5:22-23).
“ But now he has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as he is also the mediator better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.”(Gals 8:6) In The New American Standard Bible [In Context and Original Greek] read vs.7 -13. While the Law can teach us God's will and reveal to us what is sinful, the Law can't fix our sinfulness nor empower us to live according to God's will. The Holy Spirit on the other hand, can cleanse, transforms, empower, and inspire us to be what God calls us to be in ways no law can. Let's thank God for his amazing and wonderful presence in us through his Spirit
What I am getting too, is the spirit of the law, and what we believe about the law, and what we teach about the Spirit of the Law. As I try to show you the spiritual mindedness of God and How He wants us to obey all Law because it is in our heart and minds to do so. Also, because we love him and want to please him. As humans we can not keep the Law it is by Faith alone in the power of the blood of Jesus that we are in right standing with our Father God. Grace and Salvation are given freely by God our Father to us, as we believe His Son Yeshua /Jesus Christ!
“for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)
Each one of us, you and I, is the one that God has been drunk and crazy in love with from all eternity. There is nothing more we need to do to earn God’s love. There is nothing we can ever do to lose God’s love. And that is the Good News -- the astonishingly Good News -- of our salvation.
That my friends is what being a Christian is all about. It's not about titles, affluence or us. God has the impression that Church is about Him. So let us act like it and start serving others, by doing so, we will be serving Him. That's when He can look on us that day and say, "well done my good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord."
Now For those who condemn us, and judge us, and can not see these truths, I say it is because they are blinded by the old Laws and by the veil of Moses- the Bible says “Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns Christ Jesus is he who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us” (Romans 8:33-34)
Why do you not see when the truth is right here with scriptures from God’s Holy Bible?
Let’s see what the Allegory of Hagar and Sarah is all about?
LAW vs. Spirit Which one do you live by?
“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a free woman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise. Which things is an allegory? : for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Si'nai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar. For this Hagar is Mount Si'nai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath a husband. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the Scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”(Gal 4:21-31) ARE YOU AN HEIR OF GOD OR A SLAVE TO LAW?
Who, then, can separate us from the love of Christ. Can trouble do it, or hardship, or persecution, or hunger, or poverty, or danger, or death? for your sake we are in danger of death the whole day long, we are treated like sheep that are going to be slaughtered. "No, in all these things' we have complete victory through Him who loved us!"
For I am certain that nothing can separate us neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers; neither the present nor the future; neither the world above or the world below-there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is our s through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39)
“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.” (Romans 8:11)
If we belong to Christ, we know the Spirit of God lives in us (Rom. 8:9; 1Cor. 6:19-20). Because of the Spirit's presence, we know that we are eternal! The Spirit is God's down payment guaranteeing that our future is with him (2 Cor. 1:21-22; 5:5). What's more, even while we're living for Christ now, the Spirit gives us life in our physical bodies as we use them for God's glory” ( Romans. 12:1).
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you--who are you to judge your neighbor? Boasting About Tomorrow” (James 4:10-12)
Again “LET NO MAN JUDGE YOU OR YOUR FAITH”
“You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near. Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!”( James 5:8-9)
Head the Warning against Returning to Bondage Under LAW!
“If we belong to Christ, we know the Spirit of God lives in us (Rom.8:9; 1 Cor.6:19-20).
Because of the Spirit's presence, we know that we are eternal! The Spirit is God's down payment guaranteeing that our future is with him (2 Cor. 1:21-22; 5:5).
What's more, even while we're living for Christ now, the Spirit gives us life in our physical bodies as we use them for God's glory” ( Rom. 12:1)
AGAIN LET NO MAN Or CHURCH put you back into slavery—you are free in Yeshua JESUS by his hanging on the cross and finishing ALL the Law Amen!
The spiritual enemy is doing all they can to delay that by tempting Christians to live as if they are still under the Old Testament legalism which the Pharisees promoted and required of the Jews. Believing in Jesus Christ sets us free from such. The Bible and the Holy Spirit are the best guides and counselors for whoever trusts God and wants to do the predestined unselfish good works He has planned for each of His adopted children to live.
OPEN OPO YOUR HEARTS and TAKE OFF YOUR VEIL, FOR YOU ARE SET FREE FROM THE LAW THROUGH CHRIST JESUS -READ IT YOURSELF
“Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labor in vain. Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all. Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that,Sabbath had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you”.(Gal 4:8-20)
“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, different nothing from a servant,(under the LAW) though he be lord of all; but is under tutors(LAW) and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:(old law and old Testament) but when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Gal.4:1-7)
"We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death." (1 John 3:14)
“Let no man judge you of the Sabbath days.” (Colossians 2:16)
Who is right then, those who have church on Saturday or those who meet on Sunday? Is church day-- a Sabbath day make? Does going to a church make it a Holy day unto God DAY? Ask yourself these questions and see if you can find the answer in your Bible for yourself?
LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU-PART # 3
THE NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIAN SABBATH IS IN YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS / YESHUA MESSIAH!
The New Testament Christian Day of rest in whom every believer finds spiritual true rest, is our time of worship to God as we see with the Bible.
The weekly seventh day Sabbath, in the Ten Commandments, was a shadow that prefigured the true Reality to whom it pointed-- THE Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It was fulfilled by Christ on the cross HE is our TRUE Sabbath Amen and Amen!
We at Simple Salvation Church of God, keep a Sabbath(rest) which is the Spirit of the law, as every day is the Lords. We are seven day keepers. FOR EVERY DAY IS UNTO THE LORD FOR US and we give all praise to the one who made all seven days to learn and live in his love and Grace! (Matthew 11:28-30; Exodus 20:8-11; Colossians 2:16-17; Hebrews 4:3,8-10)
Early Christians chose the first day of the week as their worship day to the Lord. (Notice not called a Sabbath-Day) They called it the Lord's Day, for on it the Lord Jesus rose from the dead as the Bible says “early on the first day of the week was he raised which we now call Sunday. Old Testament believers of today, those STILL under the Law like those Israelites out of Egypt) are keeping the 7th day Sabbath after the books of Deuteronomy and Exodus, which was given to Moses and the 12 Tribes of Israel by God at Mt Sinai!
Are you one of those 12 tribes of the nation of Israel? If not, then you are a Gentile!
The Sabbath of Elohim --Was it on a day named after a Pagan God- Saturn/day or Saturday?
Let’s look at our man named 7th day of “our week” which we call Saturday named after the god Saturn? Do you think our Saturday of today is the ONE God made in the beginning when he rested from his work?
Are we supposed to go to church on that one day, to keep it as a Holy Day unto God? Prove all things, but hold on to what is of God not some church doctrine.
God had made provision for what the epistle to the Hebrews calls the "Sabbath-rest." This peace or rest consists of all that Jesus Christ has earned: forgiveness of sins, salvation, peace with God, and eternal life. This eternal, heavenly peace is still available, for the writer urges that his readers heed God's invitation and enter into God's rest.
This is the Spirit of The Law! “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”(Galatians 5:22-23 )
“But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit ” (1 Peter 3:14-18)
To accept God's Sabbath-rest invitation does not require that we still keep Friday sunset to Saturday Sunset as our day of spiritual rest. The laws of the Sabbath and the other once-prescribed holy days in the Old Testament have all been fulfilled with the coming of Yeshua -Jesus as the Messiah. Paul states that these days and occasions were:
"a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ" (Colossians 2:17).
In fact, then, Christ is our true Sabbath-rest . Through Him God conveys freedom from the Law, released US from the many do's and don'ts of the Old Testament ceremonial law’s. The Holy Spirit took the Ten Commandments from stone Tablets and put them on your heart and mind!
James explains: “But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:25 )
Paul explains to the book of Colossians, how this release came about, for in Christ "we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins" (Colossians 1:14).
As the Israelites were delivered from bondage in Egypt and were given promise of eternal rest in heaven, so God "has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves" (Colossians 1:13).
“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”( James 1:5)
“For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!' The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him” (ROMS 8: 15-17 )
"God is light and in Him is no darkness at all So if we say we are His friends, but go on living in spiritual darkness and sin, we are lying. But if we are living in the light of God's presence, just as Christ does, Then we have wonderful fellowship and joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.( 1 John 1:5-7 ) TLB
Jesus said. “ Love God with all your heart and to love your fellow man as you love yourself.” (Matt.22:37-40) This is all the law we need to keep. Don't let your pastor or some church bring you back under the old law. Read what Paul says in these books of the Bible: Ephesians, Galatians, and Colossians.
These three books will truly set you free in Christ Jesus /Yeshua Messiah
.“To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:21-24)
Do Not Put Yourself Back Under the Law That Was a Yoke–You Are Free in Christ “ I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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. 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. 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.”( Gals 1:6-10)
When Jesus said: "It is finished as his last word" Was it not finished?
The whole Law was completed–DONE–Finished when the blood and water flowed to the ground and His last breath was gone it was done. If the Son therefore shall make you free, You shall be free indeed!!
ALL Praise, Honor, and Glory are unto Jesus Christ, the Living Son of the Living God !! Accept his free gift of Salvation and be Free
Jesus' death means nothing if we can save ourselves by keeping some written law. Jesus even tells the people that the law is a curse to man and that no man can keep the law, not even the priests in the temple could keep all the law, because they where men with sins in their own lives.
The spiritual enemy of today
