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. Revelation 22:14
There are hundreds of God’s commandements in the Bible.. so which ones do you pick and chose to do.. still no one keeps them all.. Blessed now are they that do his commandments?? for it is still impossible to do and very unreal.. Not all the commandements in the Bible now are applicable even today and so which ones do you follow? you try even do them all cause you still cannot hear God speaking directly to you?
JN 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 15:6 “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
JOSHUA 1:8 “STUDY THIS BOOK OF INSTRUCTION CONTINUALLY, MEDITATE ON IT DAY AND NIGHT, ONLY THEN WILL YOU PROSPER AND SUCCEED IN ALL YOU DO.”
The ignorant peoeple who do not know the New Testament firsthand will try to tell you that you have to obey all of God’s commandments, all even in the OT, but these same liars cannot list them all, and they do not know what they are even, so firstly they do not live them.. and how hypocrtical and absurd of them, but now can you tell the difference betwen the letter of the law and the spirit of the law even? The Holy Spirit puts God’s laws on our hearts.. which ones?
But now in the NT God says he wants us Eph 5:18 but be filled with the Spirit; Eph 3:19 to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 2 Tim 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
NOW THERE IS ALSO A false Campaign to Bring Back the Original Holy Name of Our God Yahushuah BUT firstly THE ONLY VALID NAME OF GOD TODAY IS STILL JESUS CHRIST.. and these people also falsely seem to hate the trinity of God, the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.. why????? It is a subtle attempt to demote the importance of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The devil is behnd all of this, he lies to turn people’s eyes of the real Jesus and falsely turn them into Jews..
1 TIM 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
So why do some people falsey like to preach that all of the biblical laws are still being applicable to others when clearly they also cannot keep the laws.. for them is preaching the Law an acceptable alternative to living the law? Of course not…. Why do they now rather not preach Jesus and him crucified, Jesus Christ who died for our sins so we can really live now by His Holy Spirit
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:12 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..
EACH PERSON CAN BE A DR JEKYLL OR A MR HYDE CONCURRENTLY, A GOOD PERSON AT ONE TIME AND OTHER BAD PERSON NEXT TOO IT DEPENDS UPON WHAT PART OF YOU YOU ALLOW TO DOMINATE, INFLUENCE, CONTROL YOU. We can walk humbly or walk in a false pride… AND THE RESULTS WILL VARY TOO. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/what-brings-out-the-dark-side-in-us/
THE Old Testament MOSAIC law was given SOLELY to the nation of Israel, AND NOTE THIS NOT EVEN TO ANY OTHER NATION AND CERTAINLY not to ANY OF THE Christians. NOW THE FALSE TEACHERS, FALSE PROPHETS, WHO TRY TO HAVE THEIR OWN DISCIPLES WHO WILL SUPPORT THEM MONETARILY AS WELL THEY , ALL THE LIARS WILL TRY TO TELL YOU OTHERWISE BUT None of the Old Testament law is binding on us today. When Jesus died on the cross, He put an end to the Old Testament law ..
Paul says “They zealously court you, but for no good; yes, they want to exclude you, that you may be zealous for them.” You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. God has not told you to do this, but man.”
The devil gets more people into hell with religion than no religion. The law by its nature makes one very religious. To resurrect the Old Testament laws as a way to live or have God’s approval is to have a religion Christ pronounced dead. At the same time trying to live in a relationship purchased by Christ. Oil and water don’t mix, and neither does the law and grace, they are two totally different operations, two different covenants.
MOST PEOPLE WHO PREACH THE OBSERVANCE OF THE COMMANDMENTS SHOW TO ALL HOW IGNORANT THEY ARE OF TH NEW TESTAMENT.AS THEY TAKE ISOLATED VERSES AND TRY TO ENFORCE THEM ON OTHERS TOO. NO ONE BESIDES JESUS CHRIST HAS EVER KEPT ALL OF THE LAWS, NO JEW INCLUDED.. SO THEY STILL ALL DESERVE TO GO TO HELL BY TRYING TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. AND THERE WAS NO REASONS EVEN FOR JESUS THEN TO COME ON EARTH.
Many Jews thought that the Messiah would be like other kings. They reasoned that if the Messiah would rule all nations, He would do so by armed force. So they also had looked for One to lead them in battle against their nation’s enemy, Rome (Acts 5:36-37). Seeing the great powers of Jesus, they wanted to force Jesus to become their king (John 6:15). They expected earthly Jerusalem to be His capital city. Later, when Jesus came to Jerusalem, large crowds shouted their greetings: “Hosanna to the Son of David.” (Matthew 21:9) “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David.” (Mark 11:10) “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Luke 19:38) Instead of joining the Jews in their false happiness, Jesus wept over the city (Luke 19:43-44). He warned that Jerusalem would soon be destroyed by the Romans (Luke 21:5-24). Instead of marching against the Roman rulers, Jesus came before them as an accused criminal on trial (Luke 23). The crowds were soon disappointed when they found the truth of what Jesus said, thaught.. His kingdom was not of this world.. . Many who had welcomed Him began now falsely to call for His death.
The Book of Hebrews in the New Testament was clearly a warning still now to any and all professing Jewish or Christian believers about the danger of returning to the old, Levitical system once they had been exposed to the glorious Gospel of Jesus the Messiah. Dozens of groups have sprung up all over the world calling themselves “Christian” or “Messianic” and promoting varying degrees of Torah observance for believers. It becomes NOW ALSO a different matter when they expect others to do the same as they do or they are considered not spiritual or not saved. Commandment observers today are zealous and eager to accept a principle Paul himself rejected. He taught against the idea that law-keeping could be used to convey growth for our spiritual life or justification Gal 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? :2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? :3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? :6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 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. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Rom 3:21-24: “But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.”
Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. 6;1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: :4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Yes foolish persons who falsely want to exalt their own good works lie to us and say that they have to be also saved by keeping the law..falsely do think that we become more holy or spiritual by keeping the Old Testament laws which is exactly the same mistake many non Christians are also doing.
THE CLEARLY VERY FALSE Legalism now tries to teach it is the keeping of the law that makes one righteous. They do still lie when they say we are saved by grace but we have to keep the law as an addition to sanctify us. The word “law” (Greek: nomos) can apply to the Ten Commandments, the statutes and decrees given at Sinai, the five books of Moses, or the entire Old Testament, it all depends on the context it is used in. All the law is called the Mosaic Law, as Jesus often referred to it; it totals 613 commandments. MANY OF those who observe and perpetuate the law today want to discard the 603 and live by only 10. AS PER THE 10 Commandments, Jesus HIMSELF HAD attributes it to Moses, not DOLLY to the 10 commandments, making no distinction FORM THE MOSAIC LAWS. The 10 commandments STILL were never separated from the rest of the law of Moses. Some OTHER PERSONS NOW FALSELY have made artificial divisions of the Old Testament mosaics law into civil, ceremonial and moral categories. While this can be advantageous for studying the assortment of laws, these categories are not found in the Scripture. The Rabbis THEMSELVES NOW saw the covenant as a unit of 613 commandments consisting of 365 negative and 248 positive. While the mosaic law was perceived to be made of parts it was always understood as a whole. It is wrong to divide the law into categories that the word of God does not. It gives a false view that these are biblical divisions when in fact they are not.
Rom 10:4: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. By trusting in Christ’s work the law is fulfilled perfectly. Christ is the end of the law, the Greek word is telos which means termination or goal. The law was replaced. All the Old Testament types and shadows were replaced by the light the one who gave us them, Christ did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it, to bring it to its natural conclusion and completion. It was there for a time and was then replaced and is non operative for a believer, it is put aside. The laws recipients were Israel. The New Covenant recipients are both Israel and the gentiles. The Old Testament law clearly is not our reference point under grace. Jesus becomes the instructor in the New Covenant through the Holy Spirit.
Mat 20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. :3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. 8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, 12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
We are no longer underneath the law. Jesus has put Himself between us and the law, rescued from the penalty we are now “under” Him. The laws have become lifeless ordinances that served their usefulness in time but now are put aside for the believer. Instead we receive God himself, the Holy Spirit, in the better covenant (2 Cor.3).
Rom 7:6: “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.
Gal.5:4: “You who would be justified by the law (obedience and works) you have fallen away from grace.” To be justified is to make one more obedient or more right with God. Whether one adds food or baptism or a day its all useless for a spiritual life. Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now trying to be made perfect by the flesh.” I hope you don’t fall for any of this.
(2 Cor 3:14 KJV) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ. (2 Cor 3:16 KJV) Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
(Mat 27:51 KJV) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
Heb 6:18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19 KJV) Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
(Heb 10:20 KJV) By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Rom 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. 5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. :6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) 7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
(Gal 3:23 KJV) But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 KJV) Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 KJV) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Eph 2:15 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; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
It is absolutely amazing how many varied and different unbiblical reasons, arguments people still do give you why they do not have to pray in the spirit, be relatedly Baptized with the Holy Spirit.. most of these people read what other men say and they do not listen to God firsthand here too.
I am basically not at all surprised that some people are so very falsely, dramatically opposed to the gifts of the holy spirit, praying and speaking in tongues included.. because decades I was there myself, when I was a Baptist.. I do admit that I then did not want to accept the fullness of God being offered by God, Jesus, Christ, the Holy Sprit cause I had wanted first, also to experience what the world, devil, flesh had to offer.. and wasted and regretted years later they had noting good to ever offer as I had seen, just a wasteful life with out God.. so next it was very easy for me to surrender to the baptism of the Holy spirit as evinced by speaking in tongues and to expect the joy, peace, power, empowerment that came with it..
HOW TO BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT (Rom 12:1 KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Thus the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a term used to describe a movement of the Spirit upon and/or within a believer usually WHEN THE PERSON SI SAVED OR AFTERWARDS DEEPENING ON HOW MUCH OF THEIR LIFE THEIR PERSON SURRENDERS TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. MANY PERSONS TILL ONLY INITIALLY GIVE PIECEMEAL, SMALL PORTIONS FO THEIR LIFE TO GOD AND NEVER SURRENDER TO THE COMPLETE WILL OF GOD FOR THEM.. now still there are many Christians who have had this “secondary” experience of the Spirit. after they had fully died to self, stop living in the kingdom of self, gave their whole life unto Jesus Christ, God, the holy spirit.They next do say that it has brought great blessing and comfort to them. Furthermore, they say that the results of the experience is a renewed dedication and appreciation for God, a stronger desire to read the Bible, a stronger desire to fellowship with Christians, and a deeper sense of worship of God. Millions of Christians who claim to have had this experience
The term “baptize with the Holy Spirit” occurs several times in scripture but many persons falsely try to deny what it means.. cause they are not ready to serve God 100 percent still.
Matt. 3:11, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Mark 1:8, “I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
Luke 3:16, “John answered and said to them all, ‘As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
John 1:33, “And I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, “He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the one who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 1:5, “for John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Acts 11:16, “And I remembered the word of the Lord, how He used to say, ‘John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
all evidenced now by personally speaking in tongues. When people were baptized in the Holy Spirit in the New Testament church, the Bible says they all spoke in tongues (see Acts 2:1-4, Acts 4:31, Acts 10:44-48 and Acts 19:1-7).
.. so some never receive it because they falsely refuse to give all to Jesus Christ….
.1 Cor. 14:5 “I would like every one of you to speak in tongues.”
1Cor. 14:39 Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, andDo not forbid speaking in tongues.
1 Cor. 14:1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.
1Cor. 14:2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. (This is prayer.) Indeed, no one (except God) understands him; he utters mysteries (in prayer and worship to God) with his spirit.
1 Cor. 14:4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies (spiritually strengthens) himself (and draws close to God in prayer that exalts Jesus in an expression of supernatural worship), but he who prophesies edifies (strengthens) the church (both himself and others). 1Cor. 14:13 For this reason anyone who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret what he says.
1 Cor. 14:14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 1Cor. 14:15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit (praying to Jesus in a Spirit-given language), but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind.
Surely there must be very valid, scriptural reasons for “praying in the Spirit”, or God would not have instituted this to “Pray in the Spirit” available to all Christian Believers as the initial “sign” of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, while others do also have the “gifts of the Gift of tongues ” which He set in the church Acts 2:4; I Corinthians 12:28). These both are now separate gifts.. To “pray in the Spirit” and purpose of speaking in tongues and each of the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit is to HELP US GET CLOSER TO GOD! Therefore speaking in tongues, like all gifts from God, is VERY GOOD! The baptism in the Holy Spirit is clearly promised to all of the believers in the Word of God, but one cannot receive this blessing until he has gotten over his doubts and fears, or any doctrinal problems concerning the validity of this experience for today. All god’s promises are appropriated by faith. When some Christians who desire the baptism in the Holy Spirit seem unable to receive this experience, or those who have received the baptism can speak only a few words in tongues, often it is the result of some form of past, unrepentant major sin or a past unrepentant occult involvement.
Now as per the separate Church used “gift of tongues” is one of the nine charismatic gifts of the Spirit and consists of many tongues or languages (‘divers kinds of tongues,’ I Corinthians 12:10), which are for the purpose of ministering to the Body of Christ. It is in reference to these charismatic gifts that Paul asks: ‘…are all workers of miracles? have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?” (I Corinthians 12:29-30).
We are admonished several times in Scripture to personally often “pray in the Spirit” as this is the means by which we edify ourselves, worship God, and minister on behalf of others (I Corinthians 14:2,4; Acts 10:46; Ephesians 6:18). Paul speaks of praying “in the Spirit” and praying “with the understanding” (I Corinthians 14:15). Every Christian uses prayer with the understanding to strengthen himself and to pray for his and others’ needs, as well as for praising and worshipping God. He certainly does not wait until he “feels’ an anointing before praying in English for these purposes. How much more then should he not wait upon some “feeling” before praying in the Spirit, especially. . To believe that God would ever give us an experience except that which is sacred and holy, or to think that the manifestation of His Presence in us would not glorify Him, is, of course, out of the question since it makes u falsely belive we are superior to God and his will for us
Perhaps the greatest hindrance to the continuation of speaking in tongues on the part of many Christians results from the simple fact that they have never been taught that they should pray regularly in the Spirit. Every Spirit-filled believer, as a consequence of his baptism in the Holy Spirit and his ability to pray in tongues, has been supernaturally endowed with a three-fold charismatic ministry of prayer in the Spirit. This ministry involves: personal ministry for oneself, devotional ministry to God, and an extended ministry on behalf of others.Although a Divine Holy Spirit anointing experience may at times accompany our prayer in the Spirit, it is essential that we understand that the experience of speaking in tongues is always initiated by an act of faith on our part in precisely the same manner in which we initially received the baptism in the Spirit (Galatians 3:2,14, “by faith”). Every Holy Ghost Baptized Spirit-filled believer can pray in the Spirit at any time he wishes if he will lift up his voice and speak in faith and intercession. http://achristiancounselor.com/tongues.html
