          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.

    Gal 1:8

    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.


    Gal. 1:9 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.



    We must tell people the truth that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour and only by faith in His name can anyone be forgiven of their sins, and become children of God. Many years ago a lady who spoke very well of her pastor invited me to her church’s night of prayer. She gave me a brochure about it and it seemed like it would be a good thing to spend the night in prayer. However, when I got there the pastor began to preach that Jesus said that we were cursed, and began to read the curses for those under the Mosaic Law. He purported that he had the power to break the curses that those present had over their lives.


    He got really angry when I told him that I was under no curses whatsoever through faith in Jesus Christ my Saviour. He got even more angry and seemingly wanted to make an example of me, saying that I was under a curse and did not believe him because I had secret unconfessed sin in my life. One by one he called out aloud what he believed were my secret, unconfessed sins.




    A strange thing happened his church members began to scream, fall out, and some foamed at the lips as he called out each of my so called secret, unconfessed sins. This went on so long that besides myself and him and the two men with him in the pulpit, the whole congregation were writhing on the floor begging for help due to their secret and unconfessed sins. The place actually smelled acrid like fire and brimstone.

    He called for a break and got all the people up and they went out to take care of themselves, I remained standing, and feeling perfectly fine. When we resumed he took a bunch of little sticks and would snap his fingers and break a little stick each time he read out a particular curse that he was so called breaking from the congregations’ lives. Next he asked the people to form a line and stood in front of it to lay hands on the people to heal them. As the so called pastor and the two men with him laid hands on the people, every one they touched fell down screaming, writhing, and foaming at the lips. I was strongly led by the Lord to get in the line and as I came near the three men, great fear fell on their faces, and they yelled out to each other not to touch me. I had no fear of these false teachers and knew they had no power with God. God empowers His people to stand in faith for His name and against all lies of the devil. They abruptly shutdown the so called prayer meeting , and I left.

    The story does not end here. No amount of urging to get the lady that had invited me out of that false church worked. Her so called pastor died suddenly not long after. The lady began to suffer strange illnesses, boils all over her body, and wasted away to skin and bone and died.

     Brothers and sisters God does not teach that people can be saved by having one foot in the Law and the other on Grace. God's point in the Law of Moses  is that none can be saved by nor through it, but turn to His Son Jesus Christ to be saved from their sins, and fully delivered from the Law of death, the curse and condemnation. Those who do not repent of this blasphemy will suffer the fate of all of God’s enemies. Salvation is through grace alone, by faith alone, by God through Jesus Christ alone, and confirmed by the Holy Ghost. The Bible is clear only the gospel saves, not Law nor any other doctrine, nor any other doctrine mixed in or substituted with the gospel of grace.

    We, brothers and sisters, must fully rebuke those who "tweak" the gospel message to be "nice", to make it more "palatable", more "relevant" to the so called modern culture, and diverse populations. The gospel ain't broke, and does not need any fixing. When the gospel message is preached it will do it's work in the hearts of men to receive it or reject it. We must not fail to tell all men the truth that there is a price to be paid for those who reject Jesus Christ-hell ain't nice, but hell is real.

    Brothers and sisters, people are asking, should a Christian participate in public protests, vote, support political candidates, take a stand for or against various causes. Let me say this, regardless of our opinions about these matters, ultimately if we cease to preach the gospel message, if we trivialize, minimize the gospel message, if we try to substitute these things above the gospel message, then we have absolutely failed; and done NOTHING of eternal value in the sight of God.  

     Luk 16:15

    And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

    Whatever our stand about things going on in the world, we must always preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are now living in the last days, and we still need brothers and sisters on the street corners, walking through the streets, the neighborhoods of the city, at work, at play, with family, with friends, with anyone we have the opportunity to meet, to tell them about Jesus Christ and offering His salvation. I glorify Jesus Christ, because I know when I get to heaven, I will meet those to whom, by the grace of God, that I have witnessed to, and who believed the gospel. I have done nothing but what every child of God can do and is enabled to do, and multitudes of Christians do around the world. I take no credit for saving anybody, it is faith in the gospel message that saves all who will believe through Jesus Christ.

    Yet there are those amongst us who have actually stopped witnessing or who have never witnessed, but have laid the gospel message completely aside, to rely  solely on worldly methods of social justice to change dysfunctional systems of oppression but never the hearts of men. They also see prayer regarding these issues as futile too, except to use it as a public political gimmick to gather before men to show a 'moral imperative' for their issues.   

    It all comes down to at the end of the day whom we choose to believe. If we choose to believe Lord Jesus Christ, then the gospel message will never be taken off the table, or placed last on our eternal to do list. Social justice has a place, but never first place and must never be seen as a replacement or substitution for the New Testament gospel of Jesus Christ. No matter what is going on in the world God still  commands us to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, because hell is real, and only Jesus Christ can save souls and change hearts for all eternity. Only what we do for Christ will last.

    I thank God for Jesus Christ and for all the wonderful, kind, loving Christians He sows into our lives and even those who have a ways to go in these areas. Sam is a brother in the Lord of mine, that when I think about him, it always brings a smile to my face and joy in my heart. Sam was diagnosed with cancer. He had to go through a terrible and harsh treatment to ultimately defeat it. You would never think Sam had a trouble in the world, he is always cheerful in the Lord, and never allows his circumstances, situations or conditions  to undermine his joy in the Lord.

    Sam shared with me that one day he bit into a delicious sandwich, and began to chew but felt something like pebbles in his mouth. When Sam looked down at the sandwich, most of his teeth were embedded in it, besides those that remained loosed and embedded in the food he had been trying to chew. Alas, the radiation had caused all of his teeth to fall out!

    Sam did not miss a beat, or waste time feeling sorry for himself noting that ultimately our human bodies will fail, but Christ will restore all things when He returns. Sam wasted no time but had dentures made so that he could still eat.  Sam never lost hope, never became depressed because of his problems; but took it all in stride on every level. There are days when Sam still struggles with weakness and other problems, but he never struggles in his faith towards Jesus Christ. Jesus gave me great encouragement through my brother Sam to never see any issue or problem bigger than God, praise the name of Jesus.

    God commands that the whole Law be kept, not just portions of it. If a person under the Law breaks even one of the Laws, God holds him guilty of breaking all the Laws. THEREFORE ONE CAN SAY FOR THOSE UNDER THE LAW-ONE SLIP SINKS THEIR SHIPS.


    The curses FROM God under the Law to those who break the Law is truly horrific, dreadful, deadly, bone chilling. All the more reason all who turn in belief in the only Saviour, can be delivered from the Law AND ITS CURSES, with great thanks giving to Him. Again and again the Bible declares that only though Jesus Christ, alone, are all who believe are forever delivered from the Law with its curses. Those who reject Jesus Christ are still under the Law and its curses.


    Since it was God’s purpose that no mere human being under the Law could ever keep the Law, the curses of the Law upon every Law breaker was INEVITABLE. SO THOSE WHO BIND THEMSELVES UNDER THE LAW ARE BOUND UNDER THE CURSES AS WELL.






    Deu 27:26 Cursed be he that confirmeth not ALL the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen. ( Confirmed in the New Covenant: Jas 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of ALL. )


    Deut. 28: 15But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do ALL his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that ALL these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:




    16Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.




    17Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.




    18Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.




    19Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.




    20The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. 21The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. 22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. 23And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. 24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.




    25The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. 26And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.




    27The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: 29And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. 30Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them. 32Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. 33The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway: 34So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. 36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone. 37And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee. 38Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it. 39Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 40Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit. 41Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 42All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume. 43The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. 45Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever. 47Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. 49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; 50A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young: 51And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee. 52And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. 53And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: 54So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave: 55So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. 56The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, 57And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.58If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; 59Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. 60Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. 61Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed. 62And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God. 63And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it. 64And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. 65And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind: 66And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: 67In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 68And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

    Some falsely claim that after salvation Christians still sin, therefore “we are sinners still”. This is why we must not only give the general message of the New Covenant, but the specifics as well as down to the minutiae to dispel this kind of false teaching. Heb. 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,


    16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;


    17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.


    18Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.





    Ro. 5: 13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.


    The saints (G40 hagios) who believe in Jesus Christ, are not governed by an external system, but an internal system under the control of and  indwelt by God the Father, God the Son Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit. The people of God have a new heart and a redeemed conscience testing and determining that which is acceptable, or not acceptable to the Lord based on His word. Furthermore, not only is the Christian no longer seen nor is a sinner still in the sight of God,but through Jesus Christ, the sin nature itself has been put to death, destroyed forever. The Christian knows there is one answer to deal with sin, put it to death, period.


    God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. He created time for His creations, but to God the past, present and future are the same. When He saved us He forgave and wiped out our sins, past present and future. He made us new creatures in Jesus Christ, but left us in our human bodies to live our lives by faith in Him. As creatures of time, He left us in our human bodies so that when we come to the point in time that we sin, we refuse to practice or live in sin, and turn away from it, for the just shall live by faith. Christians have a new nature that desires to do the will of God as opposed to the old sin nature that exalts self and the will of man and can never stop sinning.


    1Jo 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.




    1Jo 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. The test of time and trials shows clearly who does or does not belong to God, no fruit no root.




    Some Christians, may become discouraged, because they come to find themselves in some churches that do not preach The New Testament, or blend or comingle it with the Law of Moses, and a liberal sprinkling of the personal opinions of their own, and that of various other men. This can be very difficult as some have invested time, money and developed a significant place within some of these types of ministries. Since these types of churches, I use that term loosely, offer so little it is no wonder that the people feel dried up, stale, and starved for the life giving word of the New Covenant.




    Brothers and sisters in these situations, be encouraged, and do not lose heart,  try to make a difference and share the truth of the New Covenant message where you are. It is possible they may reject you, or simply refuse to hear you. Nevertheless, the word of God stands sure, and their unbelief cannot cancel out nor undo the truth of Jesus Christ.  Ro. 3: 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.


    Do not be upset or troubled because some refuse to believe the truth of the New Covenant. , God calls them what they are, liars and if they remain unrepentant will open their eyes in hell upon death. Thank God for the innumerable believers in Christ Jesus, who hear, believe, and live the will of God.


    Trust God, pray and keep looking, God will find a true New Covenant church for you, that will feed you the good spiritual food of the grace and truth of Jesus Christ, and will care for your spiritual wellbeing faithfully.




    For some of you, brethren,  the realization has dawned that it is time to plant, and you will start from house to house ministering the gospel, and when the church grows too large, you will be able to establish a local church. In many communities it is possible to gather together at little or no costs in some schools or other public places. Consider carefully the cost of a physical building to keep and maintain.

    Fast, pray, and choose out from amongst yourselves pastors, elders, to oversee the church and establish its order in the care of the flock. See to it that the gospel message is written and given to everyone who comes to your local church, and do not fail to preach it as it is given in scripture, without adding or taking away from it.  Help your flock to grow and use their gifts in and out of the local church. God will surely be with you as your whole purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ, and deliver souls from destruction through the preaching of the gospel. 1Co 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

    Praise God for the multitudes of small house churches fellowshipping across the country. A building is not necessary to have a church if there is no need for one. Wherever the people gather together in the name of Jesus Christ, there is the true church, the body of Christ, large, or small. God expects and enables every Christian to know the truth of the Bible and to share it with as many as we can.

    The natural state of the Christian is not one of a perpetual funk, heaviness, and joylessness. The Bible even tells us what our mindset ought to be and can be by the will of God. Brothers and sisters, we can always trust our Lord Jesus Christ, He is always faithful and never lies. For this reason when God tells us something we ought to trust Him, making sure that we are correctly understanding the word of God, which is of no private interpretation: Phl 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    God calls for a balance in our lives, so this passage can never be interpreted as we should all move to Disneyland, and avoid any form of unpleasantness in the world. At any rate it is not possible to escape from all the unpleasantness in the world and that shows up in the lives of believers from time to time worldwide. Beloveds God knows about all the things that are not lovely etc. in our lives, but the point is that God does not want us to allow these things to rob us of the good news and joy He has given us in so many ways in Him and in our lives.

    I have a dear Christian friend who grew up in horrifying circumstances. So horrible that it is amazing that she made it through alive. She was abandoned by both parents and taken in by various people who treated her like a slave and did terrible things to her, but she escaped in her teens.  She married, had a child and it died. She became barren after this and lost the hope of having other children she longed for so badly. Her husband cheated on her and deserted her.

    But in all that she always praises God, for keeping her alive, bringing her out, and helping her to forgive and grow past all the hurt, pain and ugliness in her past life. She notes that at first  there were times she was so angry and filled with hate towards all the people  that had abused her that it actually hurt physically.  It was God she said that  opened her eyes to see she had to forgive and not allow these memories to destroy the rest of her life. She does not pretend it never happened, but defied it from marring her future or leaving her angry and bitter in the present. She became very ill one day, and had to have surgery and could not work for a whole year. She had become a Christian and God sent a friend, who took care of her that whole year and paid for all her expenses and she had no indebtedness.

    The one thing she says that she learned from her experience is that God will never leave her or forsake her. Our God is a heart fixer, and a mind regulator, and so much more, for His people. Along the pathway of her life God sowed wonderful Christian brothers and sisters who love her with the love of Jesus.

    She met an older man and lady who could not have children, and they took her in and became a family. So God granted them a child and granted her the kindest, sweetest of parents.


    Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Forsake: G1459 – egkataleipō- I.abandon, desert. A.leave in straits, leave helpless. B.totally abandoned, utterly forsaken.


    Jhn 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

    Comfortless: G3737 – orphanos I.bereft (of a father, of parents) A.of those bereft of a teacher, guide, guardian.  B.orphaned.

    Some people, even some well meaning will tell you that Jesus will leave those who believe in Him. That is why we have to go to His word to see what Jesus has actually said not what somebody said He said. Jesus is not going anywhere He will always be with us and in us, and He NEVER lies.

    2 timothy 2:15

    The Bible is as relevant today as it was when first preached by Jesus Christ.


    A dear sister I know was evicted from a rental home, where she did not pay the rent. This was because she knew “God would pay it”. The owner was a man on limited income, he badly needed her payments to keep up the utilities of the house. Unfortunately, he had to let the water, electric etc. go into arrears and they were cut off. After a number of years went by with no payments from her, he sold the property to keep himself from financial ruin. Some people have a hard time learning. She found another house and persuaded the owner that God would bless him for renting his house to her a woman of God, as she called herself. She was a highly trained professional, who quit her well-paying job, because she felt God would provide. She spent the last of her savings paying the first two months’ rent and not a penny afterwards knowing God would provide. She was now flat broke. She was strongly informed by her church to read the New Covenant to show her the right way. She felt she knew the Bible, because the children of Israel were provided for by God so that she believed that no Christian need work, but only to name it and claim. She was evicted from this house too. She mentioned that none of her landlords were Christians, and I hate to think about how they might now view Christians based on her bad example. Brothers and sisters the Bible is clear as most of us know that God requires able bodied people to work to provide for themselves according to the New Covenant. It is true back then in the Mosaic Law, God for His purposes provided for Israel then. However today God requires people to work and provide for their needs.


    1Th 4:11


    And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

    1Th 4:12 

    That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

    2Th 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.


    Brothers and sisters the Bible is just as relevant today, tomorrow and forever just as it was first preached by our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the gospel. There are no substitutes for the scriptures. We must believe and do the word of God for ignorance of the Bible is a serious liability. No one knows the Bible all at once, but through careful study over time we can know it, for it is the will of God that we do so.


    2 Ti. 3:  16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.  


    For reproof: G1650 – elegchos a proof, that by which a thing is proved or tested.




    For correction: G1882 – epanorthōsis:  restoration to an upright or right state


    correction, improvement of life or character.


    For instruction: the whole training and education of children (which relates to the cultivation of mind and morals, and employs for this purpose now commands and admonitions, now reproof and punishment) It also includes the training and care of the body


    whatever in adults also cultivates the soul, esp. by correcting mistakes and curbing passions.


    instruction which aims at increasing virtue. chastisement, chastening.

    Brothers and sisters, until our Lord Jesus Christ returns let us keep on telling everyone the final word, the sole standard for life and breath, the word of God who is always true and never lies.

    Jhn 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:


    Jhn 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    Trust God and do not allow any unbeliever to trouble your hearts, beloveds. Love, obey, and put all your trust in God and in His Son Jesus Christ.


    Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Nobody, nobody but Jesus can save. Not mother, father, sister, brother, nor any man, woman or thing.

    There are a list of names too many to list through whom salvation is falsely purportedly to be gained. Let us come believing on and in the only name of Jesus Christ, through whom all that believe shall be saved.


    Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.


    Deu. 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;


    Deut. 18: 17And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    From the Old Testament to The New Testament Christ alone has been appointed by God to save all who believe in and on Him.

    Act 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from ALL things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses


    Jhn 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

    This is our work brothers and sisters to believe on and in  Jesus Christ whom the Father has sent alone to bring us salvation.


    Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Beloveds God gives us His assurances without a doubt He will save all who call upon Him, Lord Jesus Christ.


     Jhn 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    Brethren, let no man steal your crown nor joy in the Lord, stretch out in faith to Lord Jesus Christ to live in the abundant life He freely gives to all of us His children.

    The New Covenant gives God’s complete and detailed plan of His commands for Christians in great detail on how He requires repentance to be used within the church body as a whole, within the individual membership, as well as the church body of governance.

    Repentance in relationship to God is between God and the individual Christian. Repentance in relationship to God for the individual Christian is centered on God, turning to do His will and repenting of those times of choosing our own will above His. . When we come to God in repentance it goes something like this:

    Lord Jesus I come to you to repent and to seek your help and guidance. I come to you as the New man (includes women too) in Christ Jesus. I come to you Lord knowing that I can choose not to habitually sin against you. Lord Jesus I repent of (name here specifically what you have done). 

    Lord I turn away from this sin, this wrong. I fully choose to turn to you Lord Jesus, out of love and obedience for you. Lord I want to do your will to please and honor you and exalt you. I rejoice that you will never leave me or forsake me, but you will give me the correction,  wisdom, insight, hindsight, foresight, patience, and strength to become a mature Christian, and walk more and more in obedience to you. I thank you Lord Jesus for not only hearing my prayer, but for being my shepherd who continually guides me into all righteousness. I thank you for the truth that no sin is acceptable to you, and that you will always help me to do your will in doing what is right in your sight to glorify and honor you alone. Lord Jesus, I humble myself before you and exalt your name and your will above my own, because the only right way is your way and never my own. Lord Jesus thank you because you will never take away the love, fellowship and forgiveness given me through your sinless body and blood.. Thank you for your correction, love, peace, and for the great mercy that I can count on your discipline and help to choose your ways and not my own.

    Some find it surprising that they can feel pretty awful, guilty, ashamed and unworthy at these times. Some may find themselves overcome with tears and grief. However, repentance is not about developing a wrongful pattern or life style of  beating up  one’s self and sitting in sackcloth and ashes. It is about walking in the truth of God’s word and doing His will. After a while God will lift up our spirits because He is faithful to His kids and we can always count on His help and strength to guide us continually on the pathway of His righteousness.

    Heb. 12 5And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

    6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

    7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

    12Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; 13And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.


    Obviously, brothers and sisters,  in relationship to God, through Jesus Christ we find ourselves growing, bearing fruit and being joyful because He is the Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient One, who knows everything about us even before we do it, so there is NO need to try and hide anything from Him, seeing that is impossible. Therefore we gladly run to Him, freely, holding nothing back, without fear of abandonment for He will help us in every area of our walk, for our good and His glory.

    We, the saints of the living God are created beings, made  by the Creator of all life. We came from Him and we belong to Him, He owns us, and not ourselves. Here are some scriptures regarding who He made us in Him, they are not exhaustive, and feel free, dear, dear ones to look up others as you desire. These are absolute truths of the Bible, there are NO alternatives.

    1. SAVED BY GRACE- the gift of God, unearned, unrepayable, and unmerited.

    2. SEALED AND INDWELT BY God the Father, Jesus God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

    3. Kept by God from falling, to be presented to Him faultless and with great joy. Jude 1:24

    3.New Creatures in Christ Jesus. 2Co. 5:17

    4. Intercession made for the saints by the Holy  Spirit. Ro. 8:26

    5. Called to be saints, and santified in Christ Jesus.1Co. 1:2

    6. Children and heirs of God. Ro. 8:16-17

    7. Children of light. Eph. 5:8

    8. Holy brethren 1Th. 5:27

    9. Holy priesthood, lively stones-enabled to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God.1Peter 2:5

    10. Chosen generation, royal priesthood, holy nation, peculiar people.1peter 2:9

    11. Our sins are forgiven and remembered no more.Heb. 8:12

    12.  We can rejoice because-Names written in heaven. Luke 10:20

    13. Sin shall not have dominion over us.Ro. 6:14

    14. Loved by God and will never be abandoned. Ro. 8:37, Heb. 13:5

    15. We can come boldly to the throne of Grace for help. Heb 4:16

    16. We can boldly say the Lord is our help, we don't have to fear men. Heb. 13:16

    Lord Jesus I pray, that we, your holy children,  may take the time to reflect and meditate on who you have made us in you. Father if there be any doubt, Lord if there be any slowness of heart, Holy Spirit if there be any lack in understanding, any hesitancy of accepting the unadulterated ABSOLUTE  word AND WORK of the living God,Please bring us to the place of complete faith in you, for you are able and will do it for our good and your glory. Let us believe  and say in complete  faith, Holy children of the Blessed living God, that, "God, your way is the only right way, and the only right way is God's way." Let us believe  and say that "God is always good all the time." Now Lord Jesus thanks always for hearing this humble prayer. Please, Great One, meet each of us at our point of need, and strengthen us in our love, trust and relationship to you as you will surely will do. Holy One, I know you do all things well,  implant deep understanding in the hearts of your people. Deeply water and enrich your saints in your absolute truths, and greatly glorify your Holy Name.

    Moses Comforts the People of God under the Mosaic  Law (See Deuteronomy 5:22-33; Hebrews 12:18-29) Ex. 20:18And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. 19And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 20And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 21And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

    God certainly proved the people under the Law for none of them ever kept it, proving God’s point that none can neither keep nor be made righteous by the Law. There is no lasting comfort in the Mosaic Law. God forbids absolutely the teaching of salvation through the Law or any form of it even in combination or mixed in with grace or various other doctrines of men (this includes women too.)

    Rom 3:20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  

    Jesus Christ comforts the people of God He saved through His New Covenant of grace.

     (See Exodus 20:18-21; Deuteronomy 5:22-33)

    Hebrews 12:18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

    Almighty God, through Jesus Christ, is our perpetual comfort and help even through the Holy Spirit. He is all that we need, to live above and have victory over sin. He will give us His comfort and strength always in the best and the hardest times of every aspect of our lives.

    Beloveds, God commands all men to come to and through Jesus Christ, the Mediator of the New Covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling. God absolutely gives eternally NO options, multiple choices or plan B’s regarding His Son Jesus Christ. Those who violate God’s eternal will are playing with God, and God does not play for God declares:


     He. 12:25 SEE THAT YE REFUSE NOT HIM THAT SPEAKETH. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29For our God is a consuming fire.  

    Anyone foolish enough to play with God are playing with fire and are going to get burned.

    God, dear saints (G40 hagios), left us His inerrant word the Bible, so that we would know what He said directly through His word correctly understood by those indwelt by the Holy Ghost, never through the error of the opinions of mere men or women. Therefore let us keep in mind the truth that God designed the Law and purposed it to prove and show all men are hopeless sinners, who are incapable of being righteous or saved through human effort; so that at the preaching of the gospel they would turn to the Saviour Jesus Christ and be saved. and completely delivered from the Law of Moses forever.

    John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    The Bible is clear God has made us free from sin and its power through the body and blood of Jesus Christ. The Bible is absolute love and truth. For this reason, these verses should not strike fear but joy in the heart of every Christian:

    1 John 3: 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

    1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

    These verses are declared by God who is absolute eternal truth, , not man, showing unequivocally, eternally, and absolutely what the sinless body and blood of Jesus Christ has done and made everyone who believes in His Son Jesus Christ. We have everything we need through Jesus Christ to live His will and walk according to His inerrant word. Therefore the Christian does not habitually practice sinning as a life style, but is empowered to live a life focused on doing God’s will above their own.

    Note brethren, God declares count it all joy. This means although we may mourn, be sad or distressed over our sins, because we have disappointed God, we are not to wear mourning as a perpetual garb. God, who owns us, allows these things not to destroy us but to try or test our faith and to grow and strengthen us and keep us on the right path as the flock of God. This is why trials should bring us joy for we will always be able to count on our King’s help to overcome. God also allows these things to weed out those that do not belong to Him:

    Lke. 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

    See this whole chapter with the understanding that God is not talking about different types of believers also in error termed as so-called “carnal Christians”. These are unbelievers who in different types of temptations or trials reject God and turn away in times of testing. There is only one kind of Christian:  

    Mat 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    Those who belong to Lord Jesus Christ bring forth good fruit over time, and also in times of testing, because they hear Him and understand what He wants, and chooses His will above all, out of love for Him, not fear of punishment. This means that we can fully trust that even the chastisement of the Lord is always for our good and His glory. Ultimately our willingness to obey God in our tests are more a test of our love for God than anything else. 

    Those who unrepentantly refuse to hear and obey Lord Jesus Christ do not belong to Him:

    Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
