          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.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 10:1For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

    I.Conscience: the consciousness of anything

    II.the soul as distinguishing between what is morally good and bad, prompting to do the former and shun the latter, commending one, condemning the other

    A. the conscience

    The conviction of: Jhn 8:9

     

    Brothers and sisters, God is continually absolutely declaring that the Levitical Law was just a poor shadow of the glorious salvation that He would later unleash upon the world at the coming of Jesus Christ, His appointed sinless Messiah, Saviour, and Mediator of the eternal superior new covenant.

    Here, God reasons with us in the sense of hey, look, I made the numerous sacrifices of the Law to be totally ineffectual in ever cleansing anyone from sins. If these sacrifices really had any power to cleanse sinners from their sins  I would have been done it with the first animal sacrifice under the Law. The continual offering of them therefore, is proof positive of their ineffectiveness.

    Heb 10:5Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

    6In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

    7Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

     

    Holy people, God knows the thick headedness of His creations making it a necessity to speak with swift, final and concise explicitness: GOD ABSOLUTELY DECLARES THAT HE NEVER HAD ANY PLEASURE IN ANY OF THE SACRIFICES UNDER THE LAW. FUTHERMORE HE ABSOLUTELY DECLARES THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO EVER PLEASE HIM BY OR THROUGH THE LAW.

    It is the will of God that His Son Jesus Christ made the one time only acceptable sacrifice that has fully pleased Him, and turned away His wrath forever from those who repent and believe on His Son.

     Heb 10: 8Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE FOR ALL.

    Sanctified: to render or acknowledge, or to be venerable or hallow; to separate from profane things and dedicate to God; dedicate and consecrate people to God;  to cleanse, to purify by expiation: free from the guilt of sin; to purify internally by renewing of the soul.

    God receives only those who believe and receive His Son Jesus Christ wholly and alone for salvation. God declares absolutely that anyone in vain coming to Him some other way is  DEAD STILL! DEAD STILL! STILL DEAD!

    Love

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 9:23It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time WITHOUT SIN UNTO SALVATION.

    The scriptures make it absolutely clear over and over and over that God has appointed Jesus Christ alone who through the one- time sacrifice of His sinless body and blood to be the sole Saviour to grant the free gift of forgiveness of all sins permanently to the repentant believer. God’s standard for offering permanent forgiveness is the sinless blood of Christ to all who believe. We see the scriptures keeps on comparing and contrasting the Levitical Law and its high priesthood/sacrifices with the new covenant of grace and its eternal high priesthood/sacrifices to declare that the new covenant is superior in every way to the Law, and the high priest, Saviour, Mediator Jesus Christ is superior with the power to take away all sins for ever.

     

    Holy people, Jesus has not made our relationship to Him one of a casual shallow nature. He has made us one in Him together with an unbreakable eternal bond: Eph 2:15; Eph 5:30.

    Jesus, the author of our salvation and the Head of the church, has fully ordered His ministry. He has ordained His body, the people of God upon the earth as kings and priests under His high priesthood.  He has appointed us to carry out the order of service to God on earth, while He himself is continually ministering before God, in the true tabernacle which is in heaven itself. In His omnipresence He indwells His people with the spirit of God and the Holy Spirit. We are no longer our own we have been bought with a price: 1Co 6:20; 1Co 7:23. In His omnipotence His wings of protection are ever spread over His church to protect, nourish and care for it as a whole and each believer individually. His church is not weak, but fully weaponized with the power of His love and truth, and there is not a foe that has the power to conquer it neither in whole nor in part: 1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1Jo 5:5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? Rev 12:11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 9; 15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. 21Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

    Act 10:43To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

     

    I.Remission: release from bondage or imprisonment

    II.forgiveness or pardon, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty.

    In His sinless life, sacrificial death and the shedding of His sinless blood, Jesus Christ alone completely fulfilled God’s absolute standard to be the Mediator of the new covenant with absolute sole authority to grant mercy and the free gift of absolute complete, eternal permanent forgiveness to all who repent and believe in and on Him. This is a great relief to Christians and a warning to those who foolishly and in error believe they effected their own forgiveness by some work(s) they have done for they have done nothing at all and are still unsaved and should REPENT! And come believing.

    Brothers and sisters, the Bible lays out the very heart of God in sending His only Son as the perfect sinless sacrifice to bring in the new covenant under which all that believe are forgiven of all their sins and saved permanently.

    God reveals to us the intimate details of His Son’s tremendous mercy, mind, heart, power, passion, faithfulness, love and truth for and to those whom He created in taking away all their sins forever.

    Resting in the assurance of the Lord our Saviour, His love, truth, and faithfulness teaches us to laugh in the storms of life and to dance in the rains, fully convinced that all our losses are but gain. For we know by His love, strength and power He is in us and always with us, so we are not afraid, and we are never alone; for there is neither the hand nor the power that can take us from Him. Phl 4:4.

    Love

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    REFORMATION: meaning to straighten thoroughly; the Messianic restoration:

     The Bible, saints (G40 hagios), is absolutely clear that  this first tabernacle God established under the Law would be valid only until the time of reformation. Tragically and yes blasphemously the reformation has been falsely attributed to the heretic Martin Luther-rabid hater of the jewish people,  and other false prophets of humanistic theology, instead of the rightful Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Holy people, one must marvel at those who put their faith in vain in these heretics. Luther wrote concerning the Jews: "We are at fault in not slaying them” for avenging the death of Jesus Christ. Hitler's Nazi government in the 1930s and 40s fit Luther's desires to a tee. Luther preached a false perverted gospel of a powerless bloodless Christ: that is when he preached a person is saved by grace alone by faith alone, by Christ alone, this is true but he never believed it. What he really believed and taught is the falsehood that the saved person remains a sinner and needs to keep “short accounts” in hopes of not dying in unconfessed sin and winding up in hell. The Bible addresses such: 2Ti 3:5 - Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 1Jo 4:20 - If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? The protestant movement of Professing churches sprang out of this heretic and other false prophets, giving rise to salvation by works, a return to the Levitical Law, which is no salvation at all.

    Jesus Christ our true eternal Reformation:

    Jesus changes every one who believes in Him:

    Heb 9:11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

    Brothers and sisters, again and again  God, declares the great eternal power of the blood of Christ. The power and superiority of the sinless blood of our sinless saviour Jesus  Christ is so great that He only had to offer it one time to cleanse all who believe from all their sins permanently. The believer is not only forgiven, but thoroughly purged from his inherent Adamic sin nature. The Christian indwelt by the Holy Spirit is empowered and taught by scripture the standards and boundaries of the holy life God commands for His people:  1 Pe 4: 2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

     

     1 Pe 4: 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

    1 Jhn 5: 18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

    Heb 9: 1

    The Earthly Tabernacle

    (Exodus 25:1-9; Exodus 40:1-33)

    1Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. 3And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; 5And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

     

    Brothers and sisters, the tabernacle of the first covenant of the Law was built by men upon the earth at the direction of God. Its complete structure was meant to be temporary and designed by God based on the pattern of the true eternal tabernacle in heaven which was to be revealed at a later time.

    Heb 1:6Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. 7But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: 8The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: 9Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; 10Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

    We have to note, brethren, the major flaws of this first tabernacle-the human high priest was in every way, despite his title, just another sinner who had to offer sacrifice for his own sins first, under pain of death if he did not, before he could even began to offer sacrifice for the sins of all the people. For all of the splendor of this first tabernacle pitched by men on earth, it was just carnal, powerless to save souls, but it did offer limited forgiveness in sacrificing animals etc. so that repentant sinners on earth under the Law would not have to die for their own sins. The high priest alone had the right to enter the holiest of all, it was the death penalty for any others to enter into it. The Bible goes into great detail regarding the harrowing life of the human high priests of the Law, life could end abruptly if for them or their children if they did not carry out their service perfectly, there are many more examples than I can post here: Exo 28:35; Exo 30:20; Lev 10:7; Lev 10:9; Lev 16:2; Num 20:26.
