Incredibly, MOST MODERN CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THAT THESE 10 LAWS WERE ONLY FOR OLD TESTAMENT TIMES

Posted: August 18, 2011 in Controversial

If that were true, then …

  • why did Jesus instruct the rich young ruler in the law as the path to life if He was going to annul them or devalue them, and why would He give them as the answer for salvation unless a respect for them in your heart is necessary for death to our selfishness? Matt.19:17
  • why does God include them as a requirement to live by in the times preceding Jesus’ second coming? Malachi 4
  • why will Jesus reign on earth governing by His laws & feasts & sabbath? Micah 4:1,2; Isaiah 2:3, Ezek. 43-46; Zech.14:16; 1 Cor.5:7,8; Isa.66:21,23
  • why did God say they were FOREVER? Did He make a mistake? Deut.7:9; Deut.5:29; Isa.24:5,6; Psalm 111:7-9 & 119:152.
  • why did Jesus come to magnify the law & make it honourable? Isaiah 42:21
  • why will God use it as a plumbline for His final judgment? Rev.11:19; Rom.2:14-16; Ecc.12:13,14
  • why is God’s end time judgment towards the earth itself due to us having changed & transgressed His laws? Isa.24:5,6
  • why is submission to His laws a prerequisite for being in God’s final battle? Rev.12:17 & 14:12.
  • why do his angels live by them? Psalm 103:20
  • why did God say in the New Testament that SIN is breaking the law? 1 John 3:4
  • why does God say that if you judge others you put yourself above the law? James 4:11,12
  • why did God say that keeping the commandments was a prerequisite for asking and receiving from Him? 1 John 3:22
  • why does Jesus ask you to keep them? John 14:15
  • why does Paul command you to keep them? Eph.4:25-29, & 6:2; 1Cor.7:19
  • how else do we grow in God’s WISDOM & Knowledge? Deut.4:6, Ps.111:10; Psalm 19, Hosea 4:6; Ps 119:98,104.
  • how else can we know the “FEAR OF THE LORD” ? Deut.28:58, Psalm 112:1
  • how are we to be truly SUCCESSFUL, when God said that His laws are the only pathway? Joshua 1:7,8; Psalm 1; Prov.3:1
  • why does God define ‘LOVE’ as walking in His commandments? 2 John 6; 1 John 5:3
  • why does God say that the only way you can truly ‘love your brother’ is by keeping His commandments? 1Jn.5:2
  • why does God say that the new covenant with Israel will be associated with the law in their hearts? Jer.31:33; Heb.10:16; Ez.36:26,27
  • If the law is annulled, ten Psalms and Proverbs are irrelevant for gaining strength for today. Proverbs 2, Psalm 19 and Psalm 119 would therefore be worthless reading material, and Psalm 111: 7,8 would be a lie
  • why did God Himself rest even before He instigated the law? (Genesis 2:2,3). His laws have always existed. Abraham knew about them before they were written (Gen.26:5) & so did the Jews (Ex.16:27-29). If it’s good enough for God (Gen.2:2,3), why has man changed the Sabbath rule without God’s instruction?
  • why did Jesus say that those who teach them will be called great in His kingdom? Matt.5:19
  • why does God mention the existence of the Sabbath during the great tribulation? Matt.24:20
  • why would God bother to put His laws in our heart, & cause us to walk in His commandments? Ezek.36:26,27, 37:24; Heb 10:16
  • why will the anti-christ oppose them? Dan.7:25; Rev.12:17
  • why is satan going to make war with those who keep them? Rev.12:17, Dan.7:21
  • why did Jesus keep them? Matt.5:17-19
  • why do modern Pentecostals believe in the curses for disobeying the law (Deut.28), but yet believe the law is annulled?
  • why does God say that the two most important things in life are to fear God & keep His commandments? Ecc.12:13,14
  • why does God say that access to heaven & right to the tree of life, requires a heart obedience to His commandments? Rev.22:14; Matt.19:17

OBVIOUSLY GOD’S LAWS STILL APPLY, OR THERE WOULD BE NO GUIDELINES FOR SIN & FAIR JUDGMENT!!

IF THERE IS NO LAW, HOW DO YOU DEFINE & MEASURE SIN? 1John 3:4

and if the laws are still operative, why do we follow man’s opinion
and ignore what God wants us to do?

The truth is, “dying to your self” = putting God’s law first,
ahead of your own fleshly desires.

Q. If you were the devil and you knew the commandments were God’s pathway to freedom, wouldn’t you discredit them? And wouldn’t you also try and create confusion & disunity in God’s ranks by getting man to produce many different versions of God’s precious Word?

At the end of time, we will face two Final JUDGMENTS ……

(i) “The Judgment Seat of The Great White Throne where we will be judged as to whether we are true Christians with the Holy Spirit dwelling in us (Matt.25:31-46; Rom.8:9; Rev.20:11). This judgment will confirm whether we will enter heaven or hell, ie. a true Christian is free from the penalty of eternal death because the Blood of Jesus has paid the penalty for all our trespasses (Col.2:13).

(ii) “The Bema Seat Judgment where we will be judged as to whether our deeds & words have been out of pure love with willing obedience to His commandments, or simply out of duty. This judgment will determine our reward and ranking. (Rev.20:12,13; & 22:12; & 1Cor.3:8,15; & 2 Cor.5:10).

‘Everyone’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work shall be burned, HE SHALL SUFFER LOSS (ie. lose his reward): but he himself shall be saved; yet by fire.’ 1Cor.3:13,15
