Some teachers say the cross has replaced the law. Not true. But at the cross we find mercy if we regret sinning against the law.
Preachers of “cheep mercy” preach that loving Jesus is all that is needed to achieve salvation. We are told that by worshiping Him we keep all the commandments.
I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws.
This is the key to lawlessness. You cant be a “Sunday Christian”, and work for the devil from Monday morning onwards.
‘If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever.
The cross has not replaced the law. The law is still valid. It convince us about sin, and make us confess that we are all sinners. We are simply not able to keep the law, never able of gaining righteousness by keeping all the Biblical laws.
Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law
Under the law, you could only achieve forgiveness by offering blood of your best animals on the alters. When Jesus the Messiah came in flesh, He sacrificed Him self, as the perfect Lamb of God. So that we do not need to cut chicken and rams, and bring them into the temple. Now we have an advocate that interced’s for us, if we commit a mistake and sin.
Those who love Jesus the Messiah, do keep His commandments. To say ” I love Jesus”, and mot keeping the commandments is falsehood. You will have to twist the Biblical message to convince your self you are right.
What are the commandments?
First, love you God. If you do not love God enough to obey Him, you can simply not love your neighbor. To intermingle with the sins of your neighbor is not loving. Neither God, nor anyone else.
If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
Do not love the World. All who keep the commandments, and live a godly life rejecting what the World has to offer, will be persecuted. There is a price to pay for saying “absolutely not”. And that is to be made a laughingstock among the lukewarm’s, who do not want to repent from their life in sin. They have fallen prey to the peaches of “cheep mercy”. They have walked into deception.
1. John 2: 15-17
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – comes not from the Father but from the world.
To be able to overcome persecution, you need to keep enough oil on your lamp. You need to pray for power for walk on Earth as Jesus did.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
The ultimate goal for our short walk in the flesh on Earth, is to spiritually grow into a Christlike nature. To walk the talk, and be a light to the World that live in utter darkness.
