LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU-PART # 3&4
THE NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIAN SABBATH IS IN YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS / YASHUA MESSIAH!
The New Testament Christian Sabbath 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?
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 Yashua -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! "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"
"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 si 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 /Yashua 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."
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.
LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU -PART # 4
If you recall your Bible, the priest used the old laws to kill Jesus and he took them to the cross with him.JESUS did this so it wouldn't be hard for you or I to make it into God's kingdom
It was by the Old Law that the Jews killed the son of God their own Messiah! The Roman’s who nailed him to the tree as ordered but it was the Law the priest used to judge Him ,then they yelled to the Romans " crucify Him and let it be on our heads and our children’s heads" the Law is what killed Jesus, He kept them all but we couldn’t keep them, not even the holy men of his own people kept them.
"I did not come to do away with the law but to complete it." (Matt. 5:17)
Again if you have not yet done so ,Look up the word, complete/ or finish, in you dictionaries see what it means to complete/or finish something!( Gals 1:6-10)
So, How can we know what to believe?
"Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous."
"And if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. When ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ."
Brothers and sisters of the Lord do not judge your fellow Christians because of the day they keep or don’t keep. It is between them and God, Let God do the judging,after all we are all children of God and doing our best to be with Him! "But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life."
How I believe I serve Jesus Christ and when others’ judge me say, I care not what you think for I am serving God and the Bible not some church doctrines:(1 Corinthians 8:12)
"The kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another."( Romans 14:17-19)
What was the main reason Yeshua-Jesus Christ left His heaven's glory and came into our world? It was because he saw sin to be so great an evil He gave Himself to be the redeeming sacrifice that would take away the sins of the world(the Law). Yashua came to deliver us from the dominion of sin...to set us free from its bondage(LAW)...to destroy its power...to pardon its guilt...and to cleanse ALL OF US from its pollution. We need communion and a closer relationship with such a Savior. AMEN!
"And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin."
"No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light."
What about those who think We are wrong and Judge this Work unto the Lord? Jesus said " They judge after the flesh; I judge no man." (John 8:15) Praise the Lord for I have seen the Light of Jesus and am freed in HIM and Live by His New Testament as His Church of God! Amen
"Enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified."
LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, MIND, SOUL AND "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."(Galatians 5:14)Love all people as yourself."All other rules and commandments are subordinate to this one law, and they must not conflict with it.
"If you keep all these things and don't have love, you may not even be in the kingdom of God." ( I Cor13:1-13.)
Read and Pray everyday to know Your Faith in God is a gift of God, rooted in his incarnate Son and enlightened by his eternal Word through the witness of the Holy Spirit in the Scriptures. Faith in God prepares and enables our minds and emotions to understand and receive God's gracious gift of salvation. It empowers us to participate in spiritual fellowship and committed allegiance to God our Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the author and perfecter of our faith, and it is through faith and that not by works of the (LAW) that you are saved.
Even the church at Jerusalem sent THEIR men back to tell the Gentiles that Paul was teaching, that this was all they had to do to be saved--
" Therefore we are sending Judas and Silas to confirm by word of mouth what we are writing. It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements: You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell. The men were sent off and went down to Antioch, where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter. The people read it and were glad for its encouraging message"
Jewish leaders like Paul who still kept the 7th day, later taught on many days and nights of the week, all over the world. He kept the 7th day because he was a Jew raised by the Law of Moses, later as we read In Romans-- Paul became more in the Spirit of the Law and taught every day of the week, where he could talk about our Lord and His coming Kingdom!
Have you even thought about all the people who where not under the Law from Adam to Moses? Are they Lost to God? What about all the millions over the last 2,000 years who never heard of the LAW , but did receive Jesus? What about all those who haven’t heard anything about these laws? What happens to all of them, are they all lost because they never keep the Ten Commandments which wasn’t given to them? How are they going to be saved?
BECAUSE JESUS DIED FOR ALL OUR SINS!!!!---
Your Assurance of Salvation
The Bible affirms that all whose faith remains in Jesus Christ will be saved, and that nothing "can snatch them out of his hand."The Bible emphasizes the infinite faithfulness of the Lord, the total sufficiency of Jesus Christ for our salvation, the dynamic love of God for all peoples, and the gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Having such assurance of salvation, believers are urged to remain firm in the faith and to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Take the time to read all these scriptures which I have given everyone to prove they come from the Holy Spirit and not me, for I am nothing except by the blood of Jesus like you, I WAS LOST BUT NOW I AM FOUND-- BLIND BUT NOW I SEE !
John 10:27-29; Hebrews 6:4-6; Romans 1:16; Hebrews 4:14; John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Timothy 1:9; 1 Corinthians 15:2 ;John1:1-4; Romans 12:3; Acts 3:16; Ephesians 2:8; Hebrews 11:1; Romans 5:1-2; Acts15:19; Romans 1:17; 1 Corinthians 2:5; Acts 14:27 Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 12:2)
"When the Holy Spirit, who is truth, comes, He shall guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on his own initiative His own ideas, but will be passing on to you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future." ( John 16:13) NASB
Jesus is the only man who could keep the laws perfectly. You need to stop here and think about what is being said to your spirit! 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 tried we would fail and then go to a hell and burn forever and ever like so many teach?
Does that Make any since to you at all?
Brethren make up your own minds, after all it is between you and God, NOT SOME CHURCH OR PREACHER or LAW! Read your Bible yourself and let God lead you to His Glory. Hallelujah!
St. Paul said " let each man work out his own Salvation."
"Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call (Acts 2:38-39)
"In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven." (Hebrews .1:1-3)
Are you following these examples of Christian Living or just going to church? Do you know that you are "in Jesus" right now, And you are a true Christian? Every day you should be growing more and more like Him ,are you? ( Philips. 3:13-14)
I do not have all the answers by far but, what I do have, is by faith in Jesus and will do as he leads me! You must do as you feel called to do but, do not take what any man tells you as God’s word until you read and prove it to yourself!
It is through reading the Bible at least two times a week and studying it, by praying every day and asking God for understanding by filling you with the Holy Ghost. Are you assured of the fact that He came to take away all your sins and by giving you the power to live above the law in thought, word, and deed? The Spirit of The Law !
Are you aware of the fact that the love of God calls for you to live sacrificially unto others? To lay down your life for your brother and by giving time, this is your life!Is the Holy Spirit running your life? Have you passed from death to life - from hatred to love - from bitterness to forgiveness and not judging your fellow man?" Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal too win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
If you have not received Christ yet? Say this prayer and He will come and save you!
"Lord Jesus, I ask You to come into my life and forgive me of all my sins. I confess my sins before You this day. I denounce Satan and all his works. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. Thank You for saving me. I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that You rose from the dead. I am saved. Write my name in the Lamb's book of life. Today is my God-day with the Lord Jesus! I pray this prayer to the Father in the name of Jesus. Amen."
Helping Each Other
My friends, you are spiritual. So if someone is trapped in sin, you should gently lead that person back to the right path. But watch out, and don't be tempted yourself. You obey the law of Christ when you offer each other a helping hand. If you think you are better than others, when you really aren't, you are wrong. Do your own work well, and then you will have something to be proud of. But don't compare yourself with others. We each must carry our own load. Share every good thing you have with anyone who teaches you what God has said. You cannot fool God, so don't make a fool of yourself! You will harvest what you plant. If you follow your selfish desires, you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life. Don't get tired of helping others. You will be rewarded when the time is right, if you don't give up. We should help people whenever we can, especially if they are followers of the Lord."(Gal.6:1-10 )
"You can see what big letters I make when I write with my own hand. Those people who are telling you to get circumcised are only trying to show how important they are. And they don't want to get into trouble for preaching about the cross of Christ. They are circumcised, but they don't obey the Law of Moses. All they want is to brag about having you circumcised. But I will never brag about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of his cross, the world is dead as far as I am concerned, and I am dead as far as the world is concerned. It doesn't matter if you are circumcised or not. All that matters is that you are a new person. If you follow this rule, you will belong to God's true people. God will treat you with undeserved kindness and will bless you with peace. On my own body are scars that prove I belong to Christ Jesus. So I don't want anyone to bother me anymore. My friends, I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you! Amen" (Gal 6:11-18)
I am sorry to go on and on but, I am so filled with the freedom of Christ, I need to vent and share this great joy and happiness. I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to show you all, the way the Lord Himself lead me to His freedom from the Law of Sin! I now enjoy that freedom after many years of bondage by churches and men who follow the Old Testament and law and who do not see the light of the New Testament of Yashua Messiah - JESUS CHRIST!
I pray this explains my Faith and beliefs as I strive to serve any and all who has an open mind and heart for truth. Amen in closing read the book of Hebrews:
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders us and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, let us fix out eyes on Jesus. The author and perfecter of our faith"
Thank you, dear Father, for your Spirit within me. I consciously yield my will and heart to your Spirit's transforming control in my life. Please produce in me the fruit that pleases you and brings you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
Be Blessed and may the Lord give you a heart to understand His word and Freedom?
IN THE LOVE OF Y'SHUA MESSIAH --JESUS CHRIST
A humble servant of God Almighty, who really loves All People!
