          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.

    3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6  he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. 7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. 8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

    John 3: 3-8

    Here we see the craftiness of  Judas Iscariot, the evil, even the trickery and obfuscations of the defiled, which he uses to hide his true evil motives. The box of spikenard has been opened and used. Judas is only interested in preventing any further loss of gaining money for himself. He tried to shame Lord Jesus, and condemn Mary, for which Jesus soundly rebukes him.  Judas had no shame, he cared nothing for Lord Jesus and he cared nothing for the poor. Judas Iscariot was a thief, concerned only with himself. He would do anything for money, anything at all.  Judas Iscariot is so skillful at deception, that his fellow apostles still do not know as yet, that Judas is the betrayer.

    THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT

    17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

    Matt 15:17-20 (KJV)

    Judas Iscariot was numbered amongst the twelve disciples. He saw Lord Jesus heal the sick, raise the dead, and do many more miracles besides, and none of it made the slightest difference to Judas. I know I am not alone, brethren, in experiencing a certain revulsion, an extreme distaste at even the mention of the name Judas Iscariot. He makes the hairs of the nape stand up on end. He sends a chill down the spine. We do not know if he was tall or short, there is no description of his outer physical appearance anywhere. The name of his earthly birth father is mentioned, but we know his true father is the devil.

    He looked nothing different from the other apostles. Initially they did not even know or suspect that Judas Isacriot was the one who would betray Lord Jesus. Ah, but they would know for the time would come when he would come openly, up front and in their faces, with the force of arms to lay hold on Lord Jesus personally.

    A friend of mine and I listened in amazement as a certain “pastor” fervently, but blasphemously,  preached that Judas Iscariot was a Christian, who fell from grace. He went on to say that Judas Iscariot is an example that Christians can lose their salvation. A large number of Christians refused to continue with this man.

    Dear friends this is why we have to dig into the Bible, and never rely solely on any teacher. We must check all teachings against scripture.

    70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 71  He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

    John 6:70-71 (KJV)

    Judas was never a Christian, he was a devil in every sense of the word. He loved money, he was a thief.  He has NO record of ever helping anybody but himself. Anybody contradicting God's word is a LIAR in cahoots with the devil. There is no doubt that tares  will do anything they can to try to undermine a true christians faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Thank God, for the indwelling Holy Spirit who keeps and protects all of God's people from deception of the enemy.

    I NEVER KNEW YOU!!

     

    Profess unto them - Say unto them; plainly declare.

    I never knew you - That is, I never approved of your conduct; never loved you; never regarded you as my friends. See Psalm 1:6; 2 Timothy 2:19; 1 Corinthians 8:3. This proves that, with all their pretensions, they had never been true followers of Christ. Jesus will not then say to false prophets and false professors of religion that he had once known them and then rejected them; that they had been once Christians and then had fallen away; that they had been pardoned and then had apostatized but that he had never known them - they had never been true Christians. Whatever might have been their pretended joys, their raptures, their hopes, their self-confidence, their visions, their zeal, they had NEVER been regarded by the Saviour as his true friends. I do not know of a more decided proof that Christians do not fall from grace than this text. It settles the question; and proves that whatever else such people had, they never had any true religion. See 1 John 2:19.


    Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

     

    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Matt 7:21-23 (KJV)

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    Matt 25:41-46 (KJV)

    Here in these verses, Jesus snatches the covers off of the wicked masquerading as the righteous. Regardless of how sly, and cunning the wicked are, their ability to use church talk of all they did “in thy name”, use of fuzzy logic: “we cast out demons, we did many wonderful works”, still hoping to evade detection and the punishment they so richly deserve, they were unable to deceive Lord Jesus Christ.

    They didn’t care about people; they tried to claim credit for the power that only comes from God. They NEVER lifted a finger to help anybody, and never showed one drop of compassion for those in any difficulty.

    The sole standard for evidence that a person is saved-LOVE (agape) that comes only from God and demonstrated in word and deed, correctly in line with the Bible.

    Love

    A district judge ruled on Monday that Texas can legally cut Planned Parenthood out of its new state-funded health program for women, which launches on Tuesday.

    The Texas Women's Health Program, which provides basic health care and family planning services to low-income women, previously received about 90 percent of its $35 million annual funding from the federal government. When state legislators voted to cut Planned Parenthood out of the program because some of its affiliates provide abortions, the Department of Health and Human Services warned the state that if it broke federal Medicaid rules by discriminating against a qualified provider, it would no longer receive federal funding for the program. Instead of reinstating Planned Parenthood funding, Gov. Rick Perry (R) decided to start a new women's health program funded entirely by the state so that it could continue to exclude Planned Parenthood from the program.

    Praise God, for the powers ordained by Him to protect the innocent, and punish the guilty. Brothers and sisters, let us keep praying that the murderous practice of killing children in the womb to be stopped in America, and the world. No government should be in the business of helping anybody kill children in the womb. Not one dollar should be given to help the homicidal planned parenthood organization, whose agenda is to make as much money as possible in killing unborn human beings.

    Lets remember to minister to pregnant women in helping them keep their children. I personally know of a man who was dying in a hospital, who said he had  paid to have his only child aborted and how he regreted it. It was a boy, and he felt he had thrown away his chance to be a father, and would die alone.

    There is too much silence about the men involved in abortion. The women are not doing this alone.  We must encourage men to take responsibility too and co-parent the children they helped create. Sex is not a game, or a hobby, it has consequences that must never result in making an unborn child pay with its life..
