          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 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.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Brothers and sisters, for some, talking about any aspect of so-called gender variants can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, shameful,frightening, and even threatening. However, none of this including silence will  make the issue go away. The purpose of this series, which is by no means exhaustive, is to take a good sound look at this subject in its various range of presentations, understanding it within the context of final unchangeable truths, and ultimately, lovingly, fearlessly not allowing it to impinge upon our ultimate God given Christian faith as individual Christians and the church body as a whole.  

    Some states use various forms of legislation. One of them is the various so- called bathroom laws, some require people to use bathrooms that correspond to the gender listed on their birth certificates. The general purpose of this kind of law is said to protect women and children from potential assault, moral harm, and to preserve their privacy.  Series to be continued.

    THE BIBLE AND GENDER

    Secular society is at war concerning transsexuals, homosexuals,  and bi-sexuals. It has gotten to the point that new types of so-called gender/sexual variants, other than the aforementioned,  are arising like dandelions.

    Some states have put legislation in place to either promote or prohibit certain or all forms of gender/ sexual deviations from the norm: (Feel free to read my past posts on the norm and its purposes). Another way of looking at the norm regarding variant  gender/sexuality  is that it is not common among human beings, therefore it is abnormal. Common sense standards have been established based on the majority of human experiences and observations of human birth and development world wide as holding true for the majority of human beings since humans have been on the earth, where such variants are not found as common or not at all.

    One of the concerns of those who oppose these variants, is to prevent these harmful  variants based on choice from becoming propaganda to children and adults that these are optional or even desirable choices for their lives. (series to be continued)

    1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. Praise God that He watches over His word, and keeps it forever.

     

    False teachers are the same today, even as in the past. False teachers add the Law to grace, and many other false additions to salvation. This is what Jesus has to say about those evil persons willfully twisting the gospel to lead people away from salvation.

     Mt. 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

    Mt. 23: 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    Mat 23:27

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

    Jesus Christ does not play pc with any aspect of the word of God.

     

    Brothers and sisters, Jesus Christ is all we need through God the Father. Let us rest in grace and forever resist those false teachers that seek to turn you from Jesus Christ. And this we will do by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ.

     

    Brothers and sisters, I hope you will find this chart helpful. Feel free to study it as often as you can, it will bless you in your knowledge, and growth in the Lord, by His grace and power. You will find spiritual ammo from God to settle you in grace, not through the works of the Law.

    2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

     

    Praise God, saints (G40 hagios), because of God’s mercy we do not get discouraged, tired, lose heart or give up in telling the eternal truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

     

    Berean Literal Bible
    But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor falsifying the word of God, but by manifestation of the truth, commending ourselves to every man's conscience before God.

     

    New Living Translation
    We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods. We don't try to trick anyone or distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know this.

     

    Christ by his gospel makes a glorious discovery to the minds of men. But the design of the devil is, to keep men in ignorance; and when he cannot keep the light of the gospel of Christ out of the world, he spares no pains to keep men from the gospel, or to set them against it. The rejection of the gospel is here traced to the wilful blindness and wickedness of the human heart. Nevertheless, none can stop the eternal truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ upheld by the almighty power of God. 

     

    Thank God, brothers and sisters that though Jesus Christ we have renounced trickery, craftiness, deception, deceit, distortion, and falsifying the word of God. We tirelessly go forth with the eternal truth of the  good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Next time, I hope to post more in Galatians.

    THE APOSTLE PAUL’S LETTER TO THE GALATIANS (and all Christians forever).

    Galatians 3:10 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.

     

    Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

     

    Galatians 3:13 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:

     

    Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

     

    Dear brothers and sisters we can always trust God to tell us the truth about His Son, Jesus Christ whom He appointed as His sole Saviour and the only source of salvation. Christians, through the Holy Spirit are enabled and empowered to share the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ through His final, finished and complete work in His sinless life, shed sinless blood, bodily death on the cross, resurrection and ascension as Saviour and High Priest over the church forever. 

    Brethren, we know that people can preach a false gospel out of ignorance, but the righteous always repent when God reveals the truth to them, but the wicked never will. 

     

    Nevertheless, we ought to believe God, above the words of mere men or women, whether they be ignorant or whether they be those who have willingly turned to satan,  and allowed themselves to become the tools of the devil to turn people away from Jesus Christ, who alone can save them. Those who willfully preach a false gospel hate Jesus Christ and are not fighting against men, but are fighting against God, in vain. For God is unbeatable, unconquerable, and has already won the battle.

    However, you, the saints (G40 hagios) are protected by Lord Jesus Christ, who will protect you from every deception, trick, and lies of the devil. I pray at every opportunity we will tell men the truth of Jesus Christ out of love for Him and the souls of all men.

    THE APOSTLE PAUL’S LETTER TO THE GALATIANS (and all Christians forever).

     

    King James Translators' Notes

     

    Galatians 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?

     

    Galatians 3:2

     

    This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

     

    Galatians 3:3

     

    Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

     

    Ummm, brothers and sisters, Paul taps these Christians on the shoulders here to remind them of Jesus Christ the sole source of salvation for all men not the Law. Hey folks, you yourselves witnessed Christ crucified, …so you are not ignorant here. Hey did somebody cast a spell on you to keep you from obeying the truth?

     

    The Bible calls such persons foolish:

     

    Transliteration: anoētos Pronunciation

     

    ä-no'-ā-tos.  G453 in the following manner: foolish (4x), fool (1x), unwise (1x). not understanding, unwise, foolish. So is everyone who turns back to the Law that has been annulled through faith in Jesus Christ. To be continued.

    Praise God, brothers and sisters. I thank Lord Jesus for you and your prayers for me. A while back I witnessed the gospel of Jesus Christ of the New Covenant to a  pastor teaching the law of Moses for salvation. He has believed in and on Jesus as the ONLY way into heaven. He will be teaching the New Covenant to those in his church. I give Lord Jesus Christ all the glory for what He has done through his everlasting gospel of the New Covenant.

    Luk 15:10

    Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

    Ephe. 5: 15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. .

     

    Col. 3: 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

    Please note: only  the Bible readings are endorsed here and none of the advertisements that may appear postscript within any video or audio that contradicts the word of God.

     

     

    Brothers and sisters, praise God we have the right, privilege, delight and command to freely worship God. We can worship Him in our congregations, in our homes alone, or with others in many places. Let us always take time in private worship, as well as our public worship to our Saviour, High Priest and Rock Lord Jesus, who has given us everything we need to do His will.

    Praise our God, dearly beloveds, He is always our answer in all things and at all times. I pray that we will teach our young people that Jesus will bring us through every situation, circumstances, or conditions. There is also quite the rage now a day of having a large behind or other body parts. Those who lack in these areas also are sometimes made fun of, or feel inadequate. I pray we will see through these things from the view point of scriptures. These trials and difficulties are only a test, and are only temporary. Jesus is our final answer, so we do not have to fret or get upset, and if we do, we do not have to stay that way.

    Let us exhort our young people to never allow their joy in the Lord to be lost due to difficult trials. Jesus Christ knows all about our trials before we do. He does not allow them to destroy us but uses them to build us up. When we see His plan and do things his way, we become more enduring, more loving, more compassionate, kinder, wiser, and stronger. The reality of our personal relationship with Jesus Christ becomes more intimate, deeper, richer, as we keep trusting in His will and His way as the only right way, no matter what. We can all be absolutely certain, Jesus Christ, our Saviour and High Priest has great compassion for all of His children and is our everlasting Helper and Advocate:  

    Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

     

    Brothers and sisters, let us inform our young Christians that we cannot control how people perceive us. But we can rest in how Jesus Christ perceives all of us and rest in His promises. No matter the condition of our physical bodies, whether uncomely, beautiful or strong or blind, disabled, or weak, The Bible ALWAYS tells us the final answer and the everlasting truth: 1Co. 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

    Absolutely no one is getting into heaven on the basis of how they look, good or otherwise. A lot of young Christians are meddled with, treated unfairly, face frequent ridicule to the point where some may feel defiled, or devalued in some way. However Lord Jesus always tells us His final and everlasting truth: Mar 7:20 20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

    We see then, brethren, that defiled persons reveal themselves by what comes out of their mouths and show forth from their behaviors. When such persons cast out their garbage, the wise Christian knows how to step out of the way.

     

    Rom 12:2 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.

     

    1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (See Jas. 1: 2-4).

     Let us exhort our young Christians everywhere to keep praying, keep loving, even those that hate them, keep trusting Jesus and doing His work, His will His way, knowing that in due season they will reap fruit unto Him, and be pleasing unto the God the Father. This they will surely do by the power of God.
