          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.

    WHO SHALL BE GOD?



    KNOW YOUR GOD (part 5)

    Blessed children of the living God, we have come to a break in the study for this specific reason, that we can now agree with our Lord, believing He is God, and that He is who He said He is according to the scriptures. Furthermore let us conclude in the faith of Jesus, who has given every saint a measure of His faith that God is always good, even if our circumstances, conditions, or situations is not. God's goodness is not dependent on any of these things, it is only dependent on who He is. Let us also conclude that God is always right, that is, His way is the only right way no matter what is going on in our lives. Remember dear and holy people of God, I mentioned that each part of this study will build up to the next on until conclusion. Let us take this time to pray, reflect, meditate  and draw closer to our God, that we may know and love Him more and more, with the understanding that His love for us is complete, and never wavers at any time.

    Let's take a moment to pray, and I encourage you to copy this and add your own prayers to it as the Lord will lead. Father, in the name of Jesus, we thank you for giving us the  privilege of knowing you more and more as the day draws near. We love and adore you dear Lord. We exalt your name above every name. We humble ourselves under your mighty hand. We give you thanks for putting us together in the family of God, and allowing us to have fellowship with you and one another. Above all we give you thanks for putting your (agape) love in us so that we have the complete confidence that we can love you back, as you so richly deserve, and that we can love one another. We confess, Lord Jesus, you are our first love, incomparable, utterly Holy and serene, and there is none beside you. Lord God our creator, we the people whom your hands have made ever return unto to you, to offer up sweet sacrifices of praise and love continually in worship to you alone. Now Father take this poor study, and make it something more through the Holy Spirit that will bless and enrich us in loving, knowing, blessing, you intensely and deeply in the totality of our being. To the Lord alone belongs, the honor, glory, worship and praise forever.

    love

    WHO SHALL BE GOD?



    KNOW YOUR GOD! (part 4 of Who Shall Be God?

    The following scriptures are preparation for the next part of the study, and are not exhaustive. Feel free to look up others if you like. The most important thing is to meditate, reflect, and personalize them. In this way their impact enlivens and refreshes our spirits, through the Holy Spirit, about the reality of who our God is, and takes it to a  comprehensive level of understanding in our minds, and hearts. Pay special attention where you see the words all, none, every in these scriptures. Be diligent, my beloveds in personalizing these, because they will speak very deeply into our spirits, by the power of the Holy Spirit, our teacher.

    This is not about senseless repetition, trying to bend God to do our will, trying to see how we can use it to change other people. It's all about our God, knowing His will and intensely sensitizing us as to His power, His love, and who He really is, that we may not only know His will, but that  it is He who will enable us both to do and to will righteously.

    Isa. 43:11 I, even I am the Lord; and beside me there is no Saviour

    Isa 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the

    womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

    Isa 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is NONE beside me. I am the LORD, and there is NONE else.

    Jer 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

    Ro 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

    Ro 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

    Mt 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

    Re. Jesus... and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

    Phil 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is ABOVE EVERY NAME: Phil 2:10 That at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, of things in heaven and things  in the earth. Phil 2:11 And that EVERYtongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  love

    WHO SHALL BE GOD?



    WHO SHALL BE GOD? (study part 3)

    This study, holy bretheren (includes sisters too), is preparation for the studies to follow. This study, is not a passive one, and I along with you, pray that we shall be active in seeking understanding in the Lord that will truly bless us. There will be further scriptures given about the Lord, in study 4. Record them if you can, and play them back over and over, or meditate on these scriptures. Speak back to the Lord who is speaking to us through them. For example when we read God saying "I am the Lord your God", you can say or think back to Him,  "yes you are the Lord, my God".  This is not about a mantra or senseless repetition at all, this is about a relationship, with the One true God who loves us. As we feed ourselves on His word, and commune with Him, the Holy Spirit will also be teaching and working in us to grow us in love and understanding on many levels.

    Purpose of this study:

    1. To know who God is , and who is God. This is not a redundant statement, and answered in the first part of the study.

    2.To gain even more  joyous, hopeful ie, favorable or pleasureable expectation in everyday living in Jesus.

    3. To gain understanding in how to break any strong hold, that may try to gain a foothold in our lives.

    4. To unlock, that is to reveal the nature and power of His love in us to both will and to do.

    Last, but not least the study will have no meaning or true benefit at all if it does not increase our understanding and love to our creator more and more. It goes without saying that His love for us is totally complete and utterly stable. His love for all does not diminish His love for one and visa versa. 

    love
