          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.

    God in the End Time has not preached His Gospel with seeker friendly rhetoric, nor music to charm and gain attention of the ungodly, for God knows the heart of the natural man-who purposely, permanently determines to and does continually reject God: The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; 5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely. Psalms 58:2-5 kjv.

    Note too, He has not resorted to intellectualism; human reasonings; vain philosophies; verbal gymnastics; argumentation; begging; pleading. No, He The Sole Author of the everlasting unchanging and eternal Gospel is preaching the Gospel in the End Time. Herein lies the true nature of the natural man who purposely permanently determines and does continually reject God- that the natural man rejecting the Gospel, will not believe the Gospel- even if it were preached by God Himself!!

    Earth as we know it shall never be the same. One look into the heavens of the End times, brethren, tells us that there is NO light coming from them. For the moon gives no light and the sun is permanently darkened. Furthermore all the stars, galaxies, and other heavenly constellations have utterly fallen away: Mt. 24:29 kjv .

    All these things have been done by the hand of Almighty God, who created them for His purpose and for a limited time. Gone too are the works of men, all the great buildings, along with massive sky probes; powerful telescopes; robotic instruments that circled space and the planets. Gone too are all the questions and debates of: How did we get here?, Are we alone/ Is there life on other planets? Is there another habitable planet? Who, or how was the earth created?

    Gone are the societies and associations of space and aerodynamics. No one gives out awards anymore to those who have supposedly "discovered" a new planet. The majestic planetariums, and great buildings wherein men debated what  is the composition of the stars  -all have vanished, along with the "heroes of space, long idolized for having gone into space or set foot on another planet.

    God is so good, all the time, and all the time God is good. I know, beloveds, this seems simple, and repetitive. I ponder if to some that saying God's way is the only right way, and the only right way is God's way seems simple and repetitive as well. Yet this is a profound and eternal truth that provides a solid answer and unchanging standard in many of lifes difficulties.

    I enjoy the pleasure of scripture study in groups and with individual Christians. I find it such a joy as we all englighten one another, and increase our understanding of what God wants, done-His way. In discussing scripture with some (but never all), I have found that some actually had never read the Bible, and had little understanding of God's word. Praise God when they  began to actually read the Bible, they could also rejoice greatly in understanding what our Triune God has done for us.

    Many in the church are undergoing various trials and hardships. Problems  in the economy has lead to job loss, with the prospect of finding new jobs competitive, and hard to come by. Many of the saints (G40 hagios) are trying to help out by providing financial help, and any other practical help that they can. Some churches have undertaken trying to help the brethren by finding them jobs, and help writing resumes and giving a good job interview. I thank God that my local church(AND MULTITUDES OF OTHERS)  have stepped in and prevented evictions by covering the rent for some.

    Praise Jesus, who has made us His own, through His eternal precious blood. He has given us Himself, a new Kingdom, a new life, and a new love with perpetual hope. 1peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

    1 peter 2:9-10. 9 But ye are a royal priesthood an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hat called you our 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.

    As the royal priesthood under our only Lord, Saviour, and Highpriest over the house of God, beloveds, let us continue to maintain good works, that God has prepared for us, that we should walk in them. Dearly beloved, tell as many as you can the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Love the brothers and sisters, even as we are loved. Help others as you are able. Do all the good that it is in your hand to do. The hour is late, and Christ can return any time soon-let Him find us awake and doing good out of love for Him.

    love

    1 Thes. 6:5-10 kjv Ye are ALL children of the day, we are (absolutely) NOT (G3756 ouk, the absolute negative) of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep in the night, and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and for an helmet, the hope of Salvation. 9 For God has (absolutely)  NOT ( again God uses here the word G3756- ouk the absolute negative) appointed us to wrath, but to obtain Salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 Who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

    Brothers and sisters, we all must watch, as our Lord has commanded each and every one of us. Our Sovereign Lord is continually watching over the whole of His kingdom. He has also instructed, commanded, and given each saint (G40 hagios), this wonderful right to participate in this very thing, out of love and within the context of the scriptures, correctly understood and lived.

    He whose eyes never blink, nor close in sleep is ever faithful. Beloveds we can trust that He will continually discipline His people, each and every one of us,  in an up front, in our faces, deeply personal level. He makes NO EXCEPTIONS. 

     He is the Supreme Head and Founder of the church, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His dealings with us is as The Father, loving His children. Therefore, we must eagerly submit to Him, for His discipline (chastisement) is always for His glory and our good.

     He will guide us on the narrow path, He will lead us into all righteousness, He will keep us from the path of destruction; He will grant us all the wisdom we need to follow Him; He will guide and strengthen us in all His ways; He will never fail to lead us to glorify Him; He will protect us from and expel the evil from His presence. Brethren, trust and obey God always, and mark those who refuse to do so for they serve themselves only and not God.

    Beware, anyone showing a clear consistent pattern of behavior in word and/or deed in rejecting the disciplinary Hand of God, and who resists genuine church discipline of the saints (G40 hagios). God minces no words in describing such as "bastards" and not His sons.

    Thank God, that He has given us His inerrant word, that we may know how to serve Him and not ourselves. Again, brothers and sisters, God is the Author and and Chief disciplinarian of and in the church.  While church leaders are ordained to have the main responsibility among the saints (G40 hagios) to discipline in the church: the whole church, not just church leaders  have the authority, blessing, privilege and the right to participate in church discipline:

    1. Each believer starts with himself or herself first. Mt. 7: 1-5; 2 Cor. 13:5.

    2. Each believer gives discipline to others and receives discipline from other believers. Ro. 15: 14.

    3. Church leaders employ discipline over the church within the bounds of scripture, and are not exempt from discipline of the church body. Again, I know it might seem odd to list church leaders lastly, but again, brothers and sisters, I hope it would be obvious that any leader who will not discipline himself or herself first, do not belong in church leadership. 1 Thes. 5:12-13.

    4. God has ordained that ALL church discipline be done out of love; and within the context of scripture, without partiality. See 2 Tim. 3:16-17.

    I want to touch on something just briefly about the wheat, but want to avoid a study within a study. God is faithful and perseveres in saving His people; the parable of the lost sheep; lost coin; and Jude vs 23 are examples of God's power to save those who will hear His call regardless of where they are found. He is not addressing those who do not want  or choose not to hear Him. These verses have been wrongly applied to and taught by some to mean that tares will be saved. The Bible teaches otherwise, and is the sole valid teaching and Final Answer on this subject.
