          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.

    IDOLATRY (part 14) Modern Day Idolatry

     

    Redeemed children of the Great Lord of heaven and earth, who has created everything, and made us His people, because of His loving kindness and mercy, we continue on looking at the true church. ( We are never speaking of a building, better-facility here, but the saints, the people of God.)


    Dear brothers and sisters,let us continue on with  the true, church on earth, which  meets locally as a Christian congregation, and may join with other local churches from time to time for various purposes. All local churches, understand that they belong to the church universal. It must be understood saints, we are NEVER talking about a building (better facility) here! The Church’s spiritual authority can only be derived from the correct interpretation, and application of the Holy Bible, in obedience to God.

    Various overseers, meeting certain biblical qualifications, are taken from the body, for the function and care of the church, and to maintain sound biblical doctrine and discipline, as servant leaders not as dictators or lords.

    We will stop here for now, beloveds. Next time we will continue on with the roles and functions of the true church. At some point in this study, I pray that the Holy Spirit will enable me to address some of those dear saints taunted and haunted by their past, that some will be enlightened, and relieved from their distress regarding the past. I pray that all will feel free to visit this site and these pages whether they comment or not. The One I always pray that will be seen here is Jesus Christ, who builds His people up in love.

    Love

    Idolatry (part 13) Modern Day

    Dear children of light, as we began earlier in chapter ten we continue on, looking at the true church (remember holy brethren, we are NEVER talking about a facility here.) We must know and understand what the true church is, because once we know the real deal, all counterfeits are easily discerned.

    All members of the church, also called saints are important to the body as a whole,God says and we believe that no member is unimportant.

     

    Love (agape) is God's litmus test, which proves Who is and who is not a true Christian. Beloveds, I pray that this may not be a passive study so in some places I will just put the chapters and verses, that as we look them up our Lord may speak deeply into our hearts, and minds through His word: ICo. 12:31; ICo. 13: 1-8; Gal: 5:6; Jn. 13: 34-35; Jn. 14:15, Jn. 4:21.

    The true church even loves and forgives her enemies. The Lord gives to ,to every, saint through the Holy Spirit  the ability and capacity to (agape) love.  

    Lord Jesus I pray that you will bless and enlighten each and every one of us your people, to rest securely in who you have made us and called us to be, children of God and of the light. Lord Jesus, continually help us to see ourselves and our very lives that you have given us through your eyes only, trusting and obeying you to walk in your love, always. The study will continue, dear ones, and I always look forward to seeing you next time. I thank our Lord for many of your posts that always refreshes and strengthens my spirit, and I am sure many others as well.

    Love

    IDOLATRY (part 12) Modern day Idolatry

    You dear lively stones, and holy nation as we began in part ten , we continue in part 12, with what the true church is. In order to look at the false, it is important to see and know what the true is. We saints, must ever keep fresh and refining our understanding of what is the true church of Jesus Christ, who edifies and builds us up. The knowledge of the true easily causes that which is false to be seen as such in glaring reality.

    The ekklesia or called out ones, that are upon the earth reside as foreigners regardless of where they are born, they are actually citizens of heaven, of that everlasting kingdom whose builder and founder is God. They are a reminder and a warning to the world of God's presence on earth and that He will return.

    In view of Christ's promise to return, the church also works to spread the good news of the gospel to all men everywhere to receive salvation and to escape the wrath to come.

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

    Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    Mt 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    The study will be continued dear saints, and holy children of light, made righteous by Jesus Christ who loves us with an eternal love. I look forward as always to seeing you again. In some part of the study I will be touching on a strange form of idolatry, that is accepted by some among (but never in) the true church.

    love

    IDOLATRY (part eleven) Modern day Idolatry

    Dear Saints, we begin where we left off in part ten, in order to look at the false, we must first know that which is true. We continue with what is the true church.

    Jesus Christ, Through His favor or Grace, which cannot be earned, merited or purchased, but is given out of His love and mercy, He alone permanently places members in His body, who profess and believe on His Name. He alone washes away their sins, and makes them new creations in Him. After pentecost the OT. promises that not only Jews, but gentiles as well would be called to become children of God, came to pass, and God created a new multinational, multiethnic church.

    The called out ones or the ekklesia, on earth represent the visible body of the Christ universal church , in whom the triune God lives, loves, and indwells individual members and all members as a whole. All members must submit to the authority of the Trinity through Jesus Christ as sole Founder and foundation builder and keeper  of the church, not and never to any government, state, persons, human kings or rulers.

    God empowers, cares for, watches over, nourishes, equips, guards, protects, disciplines and commissions His saints to work through Him upon the earth to do His will. His sheep are also an occupation force visible to all men upon the earth as evidence of the eternal Kingdom of God.  This will be continued, I will look forward to seeing you lively stones, and children of light in part 12, as we continue with the study.

    love
