          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.

    Luk 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

     

    Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

    Note brethren, Jesus did not ever command anyone to follow Him and Moses, Peter, John or any

    other person or thing. Note all the apostles followed and obeyed Jesus as commanded by God. None of the apostles or prophets tried to usurp Jesus Christ as the appointed Head of the church, but cheerfully, lovingly submitted themselves to His will. The New Covenant of Jesus Christ is exclusive, explicit, eternal, final and absolute. So those who falsely add someone other than Jesus Christ to be followed as Head of the church, ought to stop lying and repent; because God didn't tell anybody that therefore, it is a doctrine of devils straight from the devil; and those who promote this lie unrepentantly belong to the devil's kingdom, not God's.

     

    These verses are predicated on the eternal truth that God has given every believer, at His good pleasure, the power both to will and to do all that He commands; and to put His interests and kingdom above their own personal interests. Therefore, those who refuse to obey His commands after He has given us everything we need to do so are unfaithful, disobedient and unworthy of Him. This has nothing to do with the flesh i.e. asceticism or treating the body roughly. It is every Christian being rooted in the eternal truth that God’s way alone is completely superior, excellent, perfect and life giving, therefore it is the only right way and the only right way is God’s way. Because of Jesus, dearly beloveds, we rejoice and have full confidence and complete assurance that we can never fail when we follow Him who never fails to lead us according to His perfect will and in His perfect and good eternal way.

     

    Our kind, loving Father, convicts us with His Holy Spirit that indwells us, and Lord Jesus commands us to trust Him always and stand on His promises of help to us all.  Whether a Christian is Over or underweight through the abuse of food, God will give the repentant, obedient out of love for Him, the victory. Every Christian can be encouraged by the guarantee and promises of God.

     

    God’s guarantee to me, to you, to us all:

     

    Eph. 1:13 You heard and believed the message of truth, the Good News that he has saved you. In him you were sealed with the Holy Spirit whom he promised. 14 This Holy Spirit is the guarantee that we will receive our inheritance. We have this guarantee until we are set free to belong to him. God receives praise and glory for this. GOD'S WORD® Translation  

     

    Phl 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. KJV

     

    Phl. 2:13 It is God who produces in you the desires and actions that please him. GOD'S WORD® Translation

     

    Phl. 4:13 I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me. John 15:5 "I am the vine. You are the branches. Those who live in me while I live in them will produce a lot of fruit. But you can't produce anything without me. GOD'S WORD® Translation

    Next prayers of personal, private repentance solely between God and the believer. As mentioned in earlier posts repentance after salvation has an important role commanded by God between individual Christians and the church body as a whole as well, feel free to look further into this on your own. 

    love

    Brothers and sisters, God, for whom it is impossible to lie, tells us in His word that it is not a grueling, hard, draining, dreadful, impossibly difficult task to obey Him out of love, since He has thoroughly supplied and enabled us abundantly with everything we need to do so. Beloveds if we think otherwise, let us go to God in personal, private repentance and in submission to His will and His eternal everlasting and final truth. Let us put our minds in faith in full acceptance of His truth to please Him out of love. Those struggling with abuse of food with the natural consequences of such acts that are displeasing to God and destructive to the body on many levels can gain victory through coming to God for help.

     

    We come to Him individually, privately, personally to repent, not as a ritual but as an act of love and obedience to the One we place above all: We come to God To wholly agree with God, to heartily rend our hearts in repentance, to change our minds, to turn to His will, His way and away from doing our will and to amend our misdoings, knowing He will help us do this very thing. Again, brethren this kind of repentance has nothing to do with ceremony or rituals. We do it as individuals during the course of our lives whenever we realize we have areas of our lives where we are not acting in obedience to the will of God. Our obedience is the action that proves and shows that we indeed love Him and the whole of His eternal truth. 2 Jo 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

     

    God’s commandments are not hard for His people to follow and keep:  1Jo 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are NOT grievous.

    Grievous: I. heavy in weight. II. metaph. A. burdensome. B. severe, stern. C. weighty, i.e. of great moment. D. violent, cruel, unsparing.

    Dearly beloveds, there are times in our lives that more than a few of us feel certain that it is more than we can bear.  Jesus is standing by at all times. Even in times like these our Lord Jesus lovingly and patiently reminds us all and continuously:

     

    Mt. 11: 28 "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29"Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30"For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  (NASB + Strong's.)

     

    Rest: I. to cause or permit one to cease from any movement or labour in order to recover and collect his strength.

     

    1 Peter 5: 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

     

    Beloveds, we have a faithful and merciful Saviour and High Priest. He took on a human body and allowed Himself to be tempted in all the ways that His creations are, yet He did not sin, but through the things He suffered and experienced, He fully and completely understands and completely knows how to help His people that come to Him. Jesus has a heart for all of His people. Heb. 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

     

    Brothers and sisters, God forbids us to ever come to Him in the old Mosaic way in fear of punishment and trembling. We come through and to Jesus Christ in the New and Living Way before Him in love and joy, even in the presence of God, humbly but boldly, without delay or fear of punishment, but absolutely certain of His love and that He will give us all the help, guidance and discipline we need to do His will out of love for Him. Yes He is displeased with us when we disobey Him, but He will never cast us out but always loves and receives us, disciplines us, helps us to turn away from our wills to do His alone.

     

    Heb. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

     

    Boldly: I. freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech; A. openly, frankly, i.e without concealment; B.without ambiguity or circumlocution; C.without the use of figures and comparisons; II.free and fearless confidence, cheerful courage, boldness, assurance; III.the deportment by which one becomes conspicuous or secures publicity.

     

    Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 

    love

    There are those who in error claim that since God has given man free will, man has no obligation to obey God, if in doing so conflicts with mans’ own human will. Although some believe this in ignorance this is nevertheless, a false teaching, a lie propagated by false teachers, those who don’t want to obey God in the first place. God’s word tells us that His will is to be obeyed in heaven and on earth for all time. The Bible has many examples of the penalty for his people who disobey God’s word.

     

    Disobedience to God by the great prophet Moses, and his brother Aaron, the first human high priest of the Law ended in the death penalty for both of them by God. Jonah instructed by God to go to Nineveh refused and God had a whale to swallow him and took him to that city anyway. Who could forget that old rebel, king Saul, who seemed to go out of his way to disobey God, and it cost him his kingdom, and his life along with that of his sons and the army that was with him in battle. Who can forget the chilling words of judgement delivered to King Saul by God through Samuel the prophet: 1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

     

    Under the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, any Christian who attempts to place his own will above that of God’s will be met by the admonishment and discipline from fellow believers, the church leaders, and by God Himself. That notwithstanding the true Christian also has a redeemed conscience that troubles and convicts him or her that he or she is doing something wrong and they have the power of the Holy Spirit, which is within all Christians through Jesus Christ, to turn away from doing those things that displease God out of love for and in obedience to Him. God will never allow any of His people to get away with disobedience unchecked: God's word cancels out any one walking as a "carnal Christian", as though there are classes or categories of types of Christians. Other false schisms of Christians as mentioned are the "back slider", and so called "saved sinner". The Bible teaches all the kinds of godly conduct that God commands of the Christian.  God has only one kind of Christian those who obey and do His will, and submit to His loving discipline, period. Those who consistently and unrepentantly disobey Him are not Christians at all.

    Ti. 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

    15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

    Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

     

    Chasten: in the following manner: chasten (6x), chastise (2x), learn (2x), teach (2x), instruct (1x). THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PUNISHMENT OR CONDEMNATION. The true Christian turns to God when disciplined by Him, the church, fellow believers, or by their redeemed conscience. God's discipline does not feel good to us at first because we fully realize the hurt and disappointment we His children have caused Him, who gave us life, hope and salvation. After God's loving discipline He brings us good cheer, encouragement and power to clearly see, walk and do His will out of love for Him. We grow stronger in obeying Him and trusting in His eternal truth out of love for Him.

     

    Dearly beloveds, some in error try to interject the Mosaic Law which termed the un- repentant disobedient as “back sliders”. The New Covenant cancels out making such excuses for the unrepentant disobedient. Those who remain impenitent after the disciplinary hand of God directly or through the church or fellow believers is not considered to be a Christian. Heb. 12: 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

     

    God neither permits nor allows any excuses whatsoever for the impenitent: Ro. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful…..

     

    Ro. 1: 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

     

     

     

    More on the impenitent self- willed

     

    Self-willed meaning: self-pleasing, i.e. arrogant:—self-willed.

     

    Punishment in store for them:

     

    2 Pe.2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

     

    The self-willed are Without reverence for God and His Sovereign governance: 

     

    2 Pe. 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

     

     The self- willed are Natural Brute Beasts:

     

    2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

     

    The reward for the self-willed: 2 Pe 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

     

    The self- willed are not ignorant of God’s sovereign will: 2Pe 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

     

    They are never children of God: who they really are:

     

    2Pe 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

     

    And Jesus said:

    Mat 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

    Dearly beloveds, let us always keep our minds on Jesus:

     

    Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 

    GOD'S WORD® Translation 3 With perfect peace you will protect those whose minds cannot be changed, because they trust you.

     

    Let us, brothers and sisters, continually pour out our love offerings and give God all the glory, honor and praise not only with our lips but with our lives as well. We must be extremely careful, cautious, and meticulous in keeping our focus on Jesus.  There are false teachers today just as in the past who are mixing the gospel with all manner of ungodly manmade and demonic doctrines and therefore is no gospel at all.

     

    God loves us and gave His Son to save us, some however want to spin this final, finished and eternal truth on its head to claim that it is because God found people so worthy, and so valuable to Him that He saved them. This is the false doctrine of the psychobabblers, and the social self-esteem movement that has crept in to detract people from the eternal truth that Jesus the Worthy One died for unworthy sinners, because God is love. The splendor, glory, magnificence, and power of the love of God is that He saved us who not only were not worthy, but fully deserving death for our sins. Therefore, those who falsely claim salvation on the basis of their own worthiness are promoting the evil false doctrine that their salvation is because they deserved it or merited it.

     

    HOW DOES GOD VALUE OUR WORTH?

     

    Some falsely believe that our works after salvation is the basis of our worth to God. It is true that after salvation Christians are commanded and do have good works, but the Bible tells us: Isa. 26:12 LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

     

    PHIL. 2: 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

     

    Eph 2:10, For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

     

    Humility/gratitude to Jesus, is one of the hallmarks of God’s people. Therefore, since our ability to do good works come from God who also gives us a new nature and made us new people, let us be grateful and heartily use all that God has given us to glorify Him. Let us not be caught up in being cocky, filled with pride and trying to take credit where none is due except to Him alone.

     

    Some falsely attribute their value to God on the basis of love of family, i.e. mother, father, sons, daughters etc. but the Lord Jesus teaches us:

     

    Mat. 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

     

    Some try to pervert this as saying that Jesus does not want us to care for our families this is a lie because Jesus requires us to care for our families, also others including the poor etc.  1Ti 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

     

    Anything or anyone that we love more than God is idolatry, the worship of idols and is absolutely forbidden. God alone is to be worshipped: God speaks of such as those: Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

     

    The basis of all human worth as well all human worthlessness is determined and comes through God. Those who believe, love, obey and put God first above all else can asolutely trust that God attributes His eternal value upon them and counts them worthy.

     

    Luk 21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

     

    Jhn 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

     God has abundantly supplied and placed His value upon us for all eternity, brothers and sisters. All the hatred in the world is absolutely incapable of taking away this eternal value that God has placed upon all of His people through faith in His Son Jesus Christ by the mercy of God for all eternity.

    Brothers and sisters, if anyone impenitently rejects the Son of God and, refuses to worship God alone, and value Him above all, God counts all such as valueless, worthless to Him and deserving of eternal condemnation, eternal death, eternal punishment, and eternal residency in the lake of fire reserved for the devil, his angels and all of his evil human followers, forever separated from the kingdom of God. Death and Hell shall also be cast into the lake of fire.

    Brothers and sisters, let our hearts and minds be settled in grace and fully embrace  with love, thankfulness and all humility all that God has done for us.

    Psa. 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. 

    love

    Brothers and sisters, the so called “saved sinners”, self-birthers, along with those who falsely claim that their own efforts in some way contributed to being born again, stumble. They stumble over that stumbling Stone Jesus Christ. They stumble in error without understanding that God’s free gift of salvation is not easy believe-ism, but great mercy.  The free gift of salvation absolutely had to be free, because it would be absolutely impossible for a mere human being to pay the price God requires and commands for it-sinless blood, evidenced by a sinless life.

    Ti. 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

    O man, or woman, you are still dead in your sins if you reject God’s free gift. Don’t you know, don’t you yet comprehend that the foolish, insulting, degenerate, vile, corrupt, defiled offering of your worthless, dirty, depraved sin soaked sinful self or efforts, your tattered, raggedy, completely soiled righteousness is filthy rags to God, who will abundantly reward you and all such with indignation, wrath, eternal punishment and death for distaining the sinless blood of the covenant through His Son, sole sinless Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

     

    Praise God for the multitudes of the saints, who give thanks always in their hearts for Jesus Christ, who paid for them what none other could do, and saved them, washed them in His own blood, given them eternal life, and delivered them from sin and the dominion of the devil, and brought them into the kingdom of God forever.

     

    1 Pe. 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 

    When we and all  Christians come to repent to God we come with grateful hearts to a faithful Lord and Creator, who gave Himself out of love for us to save us from our sins.

    love

    serola

    This is a personal repentance after salvation, and it is between the Christian and God only. Feel free to look further on your own regarding the importance of the role of repentance that God has commanded to be done between believers and also the church as a body.

    Brothers and sisters, there are a lot of erroneous personal opinions and unbiblical doctrines concerning repentance after salvation for the Christian. It is important to therefore give the truth of the Bible which tells us the eternal truth about how God commands His people to repent after salvation. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. The word ALL shows that everyone who covenants (homologeo) with God upon faith in Jesus Christ is absolutely forgiven and cleansed from ALL sins forever by an absolutely faithful God, the sole source of salvation. 1 John 1:9 confirms absolutely what the Bible has absolutely declared about the power of Jesus Christ in obtaining eternal salvation for all who will believe in Him and confirms what has been absolutely declared previously in: Ro. 10: 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

     

    Repentance for all Christians after salvation then, has nothing to do with continually begging God to forgive us over and over for our sins, since through Jesus Christ we have received the eternal Atonement, complete pardon and forgiveness of all of our sins past, present and future. In fact, God no longer holds our sins against us and keeps no record of them whatsoever:

     

     Heb. 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

     

    Heb. 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

     

    Some in error try to use the Mosaic Law to claim that for the Christian, even after salvation that repentance means continually confessing every sin to get God to forgive them again and again to gain back lost fellowship with God:  Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. (SEE GALATIANS 3 FOR GOD’S PURPOSE FOR THE MOSAIC LAW).

     

     

     

    However, God assures us in the Old Testament of a New Covenant, now revealed through His Son Jesus Christ: Jer. 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: God’s promised New Covenant He assures us and declares that it is completely New and separate from the Mosaic Law: The Law of Moses was written on stone, but under the New Covenant God will write His laws on the minds and on the hearts of all believers:

     

    Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

     

    Jer. 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

     

    The New covenant is for all who will believe, no longer limited to the nation of Israel. Ro, 10: 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 

     

    UNDER THE NEW COVENANT OF JESUS CHRIST NOTHING AND NOBODY HAS THE POWER TO SEPARATE GOD FROM HIS PEOPLE OR TAKE HIS PEOPLE FROM HIM.

     

    Say it with me brothers and sisters, “THERE IS NOT THE POWER NOR THE HAND THAT CAN TAKE US FROM OUR ALMIGHTY, INVINCIBLE, UNBEATABLE ALL POWERFUL GOD”.

    When Christians come to God in repentance after salvation they are commanded to come fully believing, and accepting the whole inerrant truth of the gospel of the New Covenant or Testament of our sole eternal Saviour Jesus Christ in faith to God.

    Beloveds, God desires us to absolutely know and understand how He commands us to acceptably and fully repent His way never our own. Repentance, beloveds, has nothing to do with the Christian endlessly begging God for forgiveness over and over, losing God’s love, fellowship, salvation, or ever being separated from Him in anyway whatsoever.

     

    Jesus Christ’s final finished and complete work of salvation in the sinless sacrifice of Himself to pay for all of our sins, has forever obtained permanent forgiveness from God, once for all to and for all who believe in Jesus and do His will. Feel free to compare and see the superior sinless sacrifice of Jesus Christ in paying the full and complete price for all of our sins to gain permanent forgiveness for all believers in comparison to the inferior endless animal sacrifice which could only gain a temporary forgiveness from God. Also, feel free to look up earlier posts where the Bible cites that God absolutely requires and commands a sinless blood sacrifice to gain His permanent forgiveness, which is completed in the sinless sacrifice of Jesus Christ for all believers, and can never be lost. Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

     

    The forgiveness of our sins obtained through Jesus Christ is eternal permanent and can never be lost. It ought to be clearly, eternally understood that we never, do not ever have to beg Jesus Christ for the permanent forgiveness that He has freely, permanently, eternally given once for all who believe in Him. We should be focused on being continually grateful and thankful for the permanent forgiveness of all our sins through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    love

    Brothers and sisters, let us pray that some who did not understand before, now understand with the multitudes of the brethren, that our eating and drinking life is not ever to be separated from God who is our Creator and Provider. He has provided our food that we should honor Him by eating no less and no more than what honors Him and is good for us.

    God our Provider has established His natural law regarding food and ordained that the sin of consistently eating more or less than what our body needs and requires to function well will result in us bringing destructive natural consequences to ourselves. What this means is that just like gravity on earth, it matters little that one does not “believe” in it, nevertheless when one jumps up they will come down.

    Therefore, brethren, take ahold on God’s wisdom, by understanding and accepting God’s natural law through which He will guide you so that you will be able to have the control over your appetites that you desire from God. Our emotions, our wills do not, cannot change God’s natural law, all who consistently ignore it or disobey it will continue to cause damaging consequences to themselves on various levels and ways.

     

    Most importantly this is displeasing and disobedient to God.

    Yet, it is always a good thing that we should be troubled and upset when we do not honor Him in the way that He commands all believers everywhere. However, like the loving God that He is, He also stands always ready to help us in every area. Those who seek self- control motivated to please God will surely have it through accepting, understanding and obedience to His natural law regarding His provision of our food.

    love
