          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.

    Every time the devil tempted Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus struck mightily back with the whole word of God, because He is the Word of God. Every Christian has the authority from Lord Jesus to stand firmly, unshakably in His word. The devil will ALWAYS MISQUOTE SCRIPTURE TO DECEIVE. The devil and his evil people have no authority over Christians. When evil people quote scripture, what little they know, they pervert to deceive people to reject the true Gospel.

    Praise our Triune God, who indwells us, the people of God, with God’s eternal truth, that sets and keeps us free from the bondage of men. Dearly beloved, we must dig into the word of God, rightly understand it, take it into our minds and hearts and obey it out of love for the ONE who first loved us and is love.

    There was a  man, who identified as a “saved sinner”, held a high position in his particular church. He bragged to everyone that God would forgive him no matter what he did, because once  he had "sincerely confessed" faith in Jesus, no good deeds or good works of any kind were necessary to get into heaven. He felt confident that on judgment day God would receive him into heaven in that he would tell Lord Jesus on that day he was a “saved sinner”, who “honored” Lord Jesus by not having any works, just his “ sincere confession” of faith.

    His conscience did not bother him when he saw his followers abusing their families or people in the church. He had no compassion for those being abused, it was all for his followers, who were just “hurting and broken” people. He felt that the victims should be understanding and try to help their abusers to do better!! Is it any wonder that the victims reported their abuse to the law, and had their abusers arrested, to stop further victimization of themselves and possibly others as well.

    He used these scriptures to back up his false teaching: I Cor. 3: 11-15. The unfaithful servant is automatically excluded from these scriptures absolutely throughout the entire Bible; for the fate of ALL unfaithful servants is everlasting damnation.

    The referred to scriptures in light of the biblical teachings shows the mercy of God to His true children, in that while our good works(resulting through the fruit of the Spirit), will be accepted by God, he will discount those earthly works that do not and cannot reflect Himself. God has absolutely not said that ALL the works were burnt, but all those works that did not reflect Himself. God has but one answer for those who falsely claim to know Him, but deny Him by practicing evil works:  

    26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

    John 5:26-29 (KJV)

    The devil used Scripture to try to convince Jesus to sin. The devil along with his evil children are still up to their old tricks. Brothers and sisters every one of us must  Study the Bible carefully, especially the broader contexts of specific verses, so that we understand God's WHOLE  truth and principles for living and what he wants for our life. Only if we really understand what the whole Bible says will we be able to recognize errors of interpretation when evil people take verses out of context and twist them to say what they want them to say in rebellion against God.

    Dear friends of Jesus, there was a lady who after many years of marriage, came to the conclusion that her husband was not a Christian. She noted that he was a church-goer of many years; carried a Bible all the time, but actually hated all Christians. He refused to hear her when she tried to show him in the Bible, that his beliefs contradicted God’s word.  Over the years he became more and more abusive towards her mentally and emotionally.

    He was very aggressive towards her in demanding that she accept that all of God’s people including, herself were evil and no good.  He took her income and did whatever he wanted, telling her it was God’s will, and none of her needs were of any importance. Despite all of her efforts in going with him to much counseling with many and various church leaders, there was no progress made of any kind. Their attempts to get him to accept the truth of the scriptures was in vain.One of her neighbors helped her from time to time with food, money and clothing, just so she could have the basic necessities..

    Their home became unlivable, as he would resist all attempts for her to clean it.  She did not want a divorce, but separated because she could no longer allow him to interfere with her worship of God, and also to save her sanity, and health. She advised him she was leaving and did so.

    I had the opportunity to meet the man, and he immediately said that all Christians were sinners, just as all people are. Here is his response on how sinners get to heaven. He spoke with great emotion, clasping both hands together piously and said that if a person can remember once having sincerely confessed a belief in Jesus, that person is saved. Because salvation is not of any works of any kind, nothing else is necessary, as we are saved by faith alone. Even if the person AFTERWARDS, should turn away from God, and live the life of a prostitute, commit murders, or do nothing but sin and evil unto the day of his or her death, they will still go to heaven, but just will not receive a reward when they get there.

    Quite naturally, saints (G40 hagios), I asked the man to show me in the Bible each chapter and verse that supported each of his premises. He said not a word. I asked him if he agreed with God’s word:

     3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    1 John 2:3-4 (KJV)

     I showed him many other scriptures besides these which showed the man was clearly basing his salvation on false assurances and lies straight from hell.

    He became angry and upset with me, and said that he believed that what he had been taught in his church was right and walked away. I could see how the lies he chose to believe had killed his conscience, so that he felt neither guilt nor remorse in maltreating anyone including his wife. God has encouraged us, warned us, exhorted each and every one of us His people-love that only those who pass His litmus test of love shall enter into heaven; for God is love. Feel free to look up my past posts on love, and this will be a continuing theme as well.

    Blessed be the Lord God who has warned us all:

    1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    1 Tim 4:1-2 (KJV)

    Brothers and sisters, I assure you, I solemnly say to you, it is VITAL, that each and every one of us clearly understand, and know absolutely how to deal with evil people  as well as good people. We must give up all humanistic and preconceived notions about who is good and who is evil. The Bible is the sole absolute standard correctly understood to determine those that are good and those that are evil, and the ability to determine the difference between the two.

    There is neither a plan “B”, multiple choices, substitutes, loopholes, nor any options or alternatives  to the scriptures-again, saints (G40 hagios) God’s word trumps absolutely.  This may seem like a hard line to some, but God draws a hard line, and we are safe to remain in it by His power. The Gospel is our standard for all time. The Gospel discerns good from evil. Fake from real, false from true. If we stand with the Gospel, correctly understood and lived, we will not be fooled by those so called "churches, or brethren" who look like us, but are false. We are either in Him or NOT in Him, those who unrepentently refuse to obey the Gospel are apostates. You will find them supportive of abberant life-styles without apology, and willingly upholding many things that the Bible is against. God has showed us that we are to continue zealously in His word, and to tell those who preach a different Gospel, which is really NO Gospel to REPENT! If they continually refuse-God will repay them for their evil. Nevertheless, we have to get the word of God out to everyone that we can. Just because false brethren look like us, take up the Bible, while preaching "another" Gospel, proves they are absolutely NOT of us.

    17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

    Luke 8:17-18 (KJV)

    Fakes do not get past God, from whom no secret can be hidden.  God, clearly reveals those who merely have a “reputation” or so-called  “anointing”,  but in reality have nothing of God neither in God at all. God will take away the covering of every faker and imposter to reveal  him or her as what they really are LIARS. But God promises His people, that He will keep on giving them spiritual growth and strength.

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

    Eph 5:11-13 (KJV)

    Interestingly, beloveds, those in forensics are working in warp drive, trying to develop a reliable typology of evil people, whom they also call criminals, sociopaths etc., in hopes of clearly identifying, restraining, containing, capturing, and hopefully minimizing their destructiveness to society.

    Yet, just as God, the Creator of all flesh, who knows ALL men completely and fully, has explicitly and expressly given us the saints (G40 hagios) a detailed typology, of the character, nature, and deeds of righteous servants, the saved, children of God; He has just as clearly and fully done the same in describing wicked evil people, which we dare not ignore nor take lightly.

    Again, and again, I say brethren, God’s people do not go out looking for evil people, but this we do know-they will come looking for us, and their daddy the devil too. We have God’s instruction/commands on how they must be dealt with.

     8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
      10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    1 Peter 5:8-11 (KJV)

    Now the ignorant, along with the wicked, like to meddle in God’s business to say: Christians in America or wherever, are not as persecuted as others in the world. Whether little or much is not the issue at all, the fact is that THE Bible SAYS:  To every Christian ALL OVER THE WORLD- THE DEVIL, THE ADVERSARY, THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN, IS ON THE WARPATH LOOKING TO SWALLOW UP  THE LORD’S PEOPLE AND EVERY CHRISTIAN IS TO DO WHAT? THE WORD OF SCRIPTURE SAYS:  

    9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 1 Peter 5:9
    Therefore, brothers and sisters, it is not about the degree or level of the devil’s attack against us, it is all about doing what Lord Jesus commands, every one of  us is to do- resist the devil in the faith, and this includes resisting all the tares and tricks of the wicked too.

    6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus: 7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

    Acts 13:6-8 (KJV)

    Dearly beloved, even today evil people,  seek to turn away all that they can away from the Gospel. When Paul was confronted by the evil sorcerer, was he hesitant? Was Paul “tolerant” of views differing from his ? Did Paul, simply say that this evil person was just “hurting” and in need of our understanding? Did Paul think he had to be careful, because this man was close to a powerful person in town? Did Paul call this evil person a “brother” just in need of loving acceptance?

    No, not for one moment did the Apostle Paul hesitate to deal with this evil person coming against the Gospel. For the Gospel is not anyone’s personal opinion, it is the absolute, unchanging, inerrant word of God, Himself. Thus did Paul Do:

    9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of ALL righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.

    Acts 13:9-12 (KJV)

    Every believer has authority from God to stand against those who seek to pervert the Gospel. It is a matter of eternal life or eternal damnation.

    9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.   10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.  2 John 1:9-11 (KJV)

    Beloveds, God gives His clear, and absolute message- do not support these blasphemers in any way at all.  Do not welcome them in your house in person, by radio,  TV, Ipod, internet, do not buy their books, records, DVDs, CDs, etc.

    As Jesus said then, so it is now, wicked evil people preach a false “gospel”, to make their converts twice the child of hell that they are; this is most crucial in understanding how  willful evil people are encouraged to act out in deeds unspeakable and in total contradiction of biblical truth. The devil’s kids are about the business of their hellish daddy, desiring to build up their daddy’s evil kingdom.

    One might ask what if a person who calls him or herself a “saved sinner” refuses to repent?       God  commands: 10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

    Titus 3:10-11 (KJV)

    Again one might ponder what harm can it do to call Christians “saved sinners”?

    First of all it is a direct attack on the Bible, on God and on His people.

    Secondly, it discourages, and denigrates God’s people, by tempting them to practice sin.

    Thirdly, it encourages the wicked to be even more evil. Think twice before supporting any ministry and missionaries-make sure you are Not supporting false teachers, going forth to pervert the true Gospel.

     13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    Matt 23:13-15 (KJV)
