          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.

    Shhhh, Be quiet, do not say the Name of Jesus in here!

    Hush!  Hate speech is not allowed. All across America with governmental rules and the help of secular courts, activist atheists, and other anti -Christian groups, this is what Christians are  being told and denied the fundamental right to publicly speak about their faith. Christians are hushed up on many levels, including body language such as looks of disapproval and/or accusations of being “divisive”. They want to make us ashamed on that glorious name of Jesus.  How dare they!

    They are the ones who should be ashamed and indeed shall be before God, unless they repent and believe on Him. For the Bible says: 26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

    Luke 9:26 (KJV)

    Right now, today, children of light, church leaders are banned from speaking out in the church on political issues in light of the scriptures under threat of losing their non-profit status.

    Teachers are denied the right to speak about the Gospel in the class room, but can freely  speak to their class about many aspects of the occult, such as  witches, goblins, and many books promoting the occult, and other religions sometimes as part of the curriculum. Is it any wonder some kids are suffering nightmares, and nightterrors being exposed to this barrage of hellish garbage, under the guise of "education"?

    Many employers instruct their staff to say “happy holidays, happy xmas” to their customers to avoid “offending” them.

    The name of Jesus Christ, Lord and Saviour of all, is banned from any governmental facility. Now, beloveds, get this- all the while our government is literally pouring billions of your dollars and mine out to hostile theocultic governments.

    These hostile theocultic governments and their rulers take time to pray while conducting their governmental business. Their schools-all of them command prayer in the class room, and the open reading during these times of their religious books. They promote prayer publicly and in all their govermental facilities. The laws of their lands are based solely on their theocultic beliefs. THEY HATE AMERICA,  none of our dollars are capable of buying their loyalty.THEY WOULD DESTROY ALL OF US IN A HEARTBEAT IF THE MEANS TO DO SO CAME INTO THEIR HANDS!!!

    Dear brothers and sisters, get this: I met a Christian lady who works for a charitable organization that is one of the biggest providers of services to the family, the poor and elderly in the nation. She told me she got the shock of her life one day when a man walked in from a governmental agency. He told her to remove the Bible from her desk and hide it in a drawer. He pointed to the walls and made her remove any pictures, verses etc. that made references to God in any way.

    Their funding was to be stopped if she refused. Now they opened a chapel, but was told they could not tell the people to go in, but if the people chose to do so on their own this was O.K.

    I am thankful to be able to support a different ministry, that stands up for Christ, as do many others. They flatly refuse to take governmental money on that basis. They have no plans whatsoever to cease preaching the Gospel to all that they can. Interestingly, they receive public funds, anyway, mainly because the government could find no one who offered the level of comprehensive services that they do. For over a century the Christian community has also been blessed to partake in their ministry through support and volunteering on many levels out of love for God, and the desire to be a blessing to those in dire need.

    Christians that want to support Christian ministries should have the right on their tax return to designate this by checking off a box saying yes, I would like some of my tax dollars to support Christian ministries. Those who do not want this could have a "no" box to check off.

    I pray we will speak out on governmental hypocrisy allowing billions of dollars TO KEEP POURING  out to hostile theocultic governments, without any restrictions regarding their faith, all the while attempting to silence those Christians in this country  who preach the Gospel that teaches us to even love our enemies. We are being impoverished as a nation wasting our money in this way. The dollars we give these hostile theocultics are used to purchase weapons to turn against and kill our own soldiers, and to support terrorist organizations with one goal, and only one goal- to destroy every Christian in America.

    Beloveds, these theocultic governments give rise to radicalized theocultic individuals in our land and many others, but suppress anyone who do not share their beliefs. Like human stealth bombs they are hurled out to wreak death and destruction upon innocents.They are willing and do destroy themselves, just to kill those who they see as enemies.  When will our leaders wake up that there is no reasoning with this irrational, implaccable evil. The silence of those theocultics claiming to be against violence is "deafening", which enables and emboldens the radical theocultics.  I am not against humanitarian aid, yes, give them blankets, medicine, food- but never give them money. Giving these hostile theocultic governments money is like giving a raging homicidal maniac a gun or a knife, which he will surely turn against the giver. Ironically, those foolish leaders, gung-ho to keep pouring our dollars out to these hostiles, are often the targets of those they claim to be "helping".

    Saints (G40 hagios), the scriptures warns us that the time was coming that we would be hated of men. Nevertheless, God is always in control. For this cause let us not cease to pray and tell everyone that we can, of this great Salvation-free to all who will believe in the Final, Finished, Eternal, and Complete work of Lord Jesus Christ.

    Phil. 1:28-29  (kjv)And in nothing be terrified by your adversaries; which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of  salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.

    8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more, and they likewise received every man a penny. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, 12These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

    14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last, for many are called but few are chosen? Mt. 20: 8-16 kjv

    Jesus here, gives a clear picture that He alone determines what shall be done with what is His. There is absolutely no need for anyone to start messing with God, and trying to quibble with Him regarding their deserving more than someone else based on their own personal opinion. God is the Equalizer amongst the saints (G40 hagios). 

     I pray that God will keep us focused on trusting Him, for He is faithful and will certainly not forget our good works, regardless of how seemingly small they may seem in the eyes of others. Beloveds do not get bogged down in trying to compare your good works to that of other believers. The danger of this is that it tempts one to get puffed up and see oneself as above others. Conversely perhaps you received Salvation late in life and it may seem to you that your good deeds are small in comparison to others. Frankly, neither attitude is pleasing to God, for no good works  arise simply out of our own efforts, but through the power of God in whom we abide through Christ who enables us through the Holy Spirit both to will and to do.

    Whatever you do, let it be motivated out of love and for the glory of God, and do it heartily to God and not men-UNDERSTAND THIS SAINTS (G40 HAGIOS) YOU SERVE THE LORD JESUS NOT MEN. Then beloveds, He will gladen your hearts, He will remove fear from you, He will strenthen you to carry out His will, He will guard and guide your paths and give you all the confidence you need in Him. It's not about numbers: 1 Co. 13:1-3. Feel free to look up on your own, about spiritual sloth/futile excuses regardling spiritual neglect of effort.

    Therefore, beloveds, do not allow some busy body with a controlling spirit to set up their personal scale that you have to achieve to have accomplished something in their sight. God is your standard, and it is God alone. Let no man steal your crown, by deceiving you to look to men for what is right and not God.

    11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

    Rev 3:11 (KJV)

    Dear friends of Jesus, knowing God through study and living out His word impacts our worship, prayers, and every aspect of our public and private lives. There was an able bodied man who claimed to be a Christian, yet he refused to work, and in fact began to steal from the church offering; and mooch off of the women in the church. He claimed that since God had cursed the ground in Genesis, as punishment for Adams sin, work was a curse and to be avoided at all cost. He noted in the book of Matthew that since God provided for the birds of the field, He would provide for the Christian, making work un-necessary. The consequences of his thefts and refusal to pay back enormous amounts of money he had "borrowed" from numerous women in the church, led to his expulsion, as he felt he had done nothing wrong.

    Too bad he did not take unto himself the whole counsel of God: 1 Th. 4:11;2 Th. 3:10. Had he believed and done so he would have spared himself a world of trouble. It is well known too that God removed the curse He had placed on the ground in Gen. 8:20-22; Gal. 3:13-14.

    Not long ago, a dear brother in the Lord tried to convince me that all Christians had to obey the law. We looked to see God's absolute answer in Gal. 2:16;  Gal. 5:14;Mt. 5:17; Ro. 13:8. He was quite surprised to find that his personal opinion was absolutely not supported by scripture. When what we believe does not square with the Bible, we have only one answer: Lord you are right and I am not; I choose to believe and practice your eternal truth and final answer.

    God wants us to study His word:

    15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane, and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more ungodliness.  2Tim 2:15-16.

    God wants us to teach His word:

    While all do not have the specific ministry of teaching (1Cor. 12:29-31); all are expected, even commanded to teach others what we have learned and visa versa.

    12 For when the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 13 But strong meat belongeth to them that are full of age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Heb. 5:12-14 kjv. We are commanded to study God's word, one of the reasons, and certainly not the least is that it leads to growth and maturation AND THE DISCERNMENT OF TRUTH FROM LIES. Refusal to study and live God's word= weak/immature/ a mere spiritual babe.

    11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of them believed; also honorable women which were Greeks, and of men not a few. Acts 17:11-12 kjv. We discover God's truth in the study of His word-not denominations not one of which is mentioned in the scriptures.

    Dearly beloveds, God's people who study to understand and live the scriptures will never be ashamed before God. God wants us to build our lives, worship, and prayer lives upon His final complete standard for all time the Holy Bible-and NOTHING else.

    Those believers who casually dismiss the importance of on going study of the Bible, hinder their own growth, and are  missing out on this great privilege, and glorious opportunity to obey God, out of love and in the true knowledge of actually knowing Him through His word and not the mere personal opinions of our own or that of others.

    In the End Time we see the complete Authority and Omnipotent power of God Almighty reigning, soundly defeating wave after wave of evil . It is in chapter 20 of the book of Revelation we continue to see the greatness of God’s mercy and the severity of His wrath.

     God  is completely faithful. He is the patience and perseverance of the saints. By His mighty power He has with the greatest diligence sent an angel who takes hold on the dragon, that old serpent the devil, and satan- the slanderer, that old murderous deceiver; the father of lies wrapped in lies. The devil is bound, cast into the bottomless pit shut up and a seal set upon him that he cannot deceive the nations anymore until a thousand years should be fulfilled: after that he must be loosed for a little season. (Rev. 20: 1-4).

    Now we  see thrones, and those sitting on them are given judgment. We see His witnesses who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and the word of God who refused to worship the beast, his image, and who also refused to receive the mark of the beast in their foreheads, or in their hands they are brought back to life- this is the first resurrection. These lived and reigned WITH Christ for a thousand years. There can be no mistake as to who these are reigning with our Lord Jesus  during this thousand years-(Rev. 20:6) they are the priests of God and of Christ-the church.

    Note too brethren that the evil dead that God killed in earlier chapters, are not brought back to life in this first resurrection, but He has continued to allow some unsaved people to live, over whom He reigns.

    Note too that God has put down entirely all the demonic influences of the devil and his demon hoard, all influences of evil people. All of the heavenly constellations have been darkened. The nations of the unsaved have no reason to look to the stars nor be tempted to worship the sun or the constellations of heaven.

    The economic or monetary system composed of evil men and satan have been completely demolished by God who cursed and utterly burned the core of it- that wicked city Babylon with fire. So there is now no corrupting influence of money.  

     Now behold here saints (G40 hagios) despite the fact that  all of  these unsaved nations will see the only and true Light, Lord Jesus, lighting the whole earth, and is the only source of light; despite the fact that for a thousand years they will receive the personal ministry of the Gospel from the mouth  Lord Jesus Himself for a thousand years;  despite the fact that God’s Son has ministered the eternal truth as Saviour, High Priest, Redeemer; Messiah, Deliverer,Lord God, and Creator- the natural man without the Spirit and who,willfully and permanently rejects the Gospel will still not believe, by their own choice, not by force.

    After the devil is released certainly one could be tempted to think that surely these unsaved nations will utterly rebuff, reject, and refuse to hear the lies of the devil anymore, having heard the Good News of the Gospel for a thousand years, without being tempted to disbelieve by the evil dead people or even the devil himself.  

    Surely one could be tempted to think that after having enjoyed the goodness of God’s provision for a thousand years from God’s Son, they would be too thankful and grateful to hear any lies against Him.

    Nay brethren,  not so. For as soon as the devil is released from the bottomless pit, he finds quick, eager and willing allies of all the unsaved nations, who WILLINGLY follow him. As one man these unsaved nations and the devil-sure of victory in numbers, surround the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. This is the last outrageous straw, the final wicked insult and absolute provocation of evil-for  fire comes down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

    We know the rest of the story-the devil, the false prophet,  death, hell, all evil people are judged and cast into the lake of fire-Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    This marks the end of the history of the natural man- without the Spirit,who permanently, willfully, rejects and refuses to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Sole Mediator between God and men. Jesus Christ is the door and no man may enter to the Father, except through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

    This last time the Lord shows how evil people are truly implacable, relentless, inexorable, unchanging  evil, for even if God’s Son, Lord Jesus Christ would preach the Gospel personally to them, they will still refuse to believe. On top of all that,  in their final evil provocation-they will join with God’s enemy the devil, and attempt to kill God, His people, and take His kingdom.

    However, God the Eternal Living God,  is absolutely Omnipotent, Invincible, to whom vengeance belongs, and He destroys them without remedy.

    Be warned, by Lord Jesus Himself, brethren: 4 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. Mt 7:6

    Love
