If You Are A Christian, Have You Entered Into Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) ETERNAL SABBATH REST?

….Or have you failed through unbelief?

OK, so here we go again with yet another controversial subject, well it’s controversial for some, but not for those well founded in Faith in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ), because hopefully they will have entered into His Eternal Sabbath Rest.

So what makes it controversial for some? Easy, their continued desire for living under The Law and stubbornly refusing to live under Yashua Messiah’s Glorious Grace. They are like those Israelites who became embittered and fell in the wilderness. They began their rebellion when ten of the Israelite spies came back with a faithless negative spineless report to Moses, claiming that it was an impossible task for the Israelites to overcome in order for them to enter into the Promised Land and to defeat the Canaanite occupants = they hardened their hearts and THEY FAILED TO ENTER THROUGH UNBELIEF!!

Hebrews 3:15 (KJV) While it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

These rebellious Israelites hardened their hearts towards God and so, too, do these modern day GRACELESS Commandment obeying Pharisees and Judaisers, thinking that they can enter The Kingdom of God by striving to OBEY The Ten Commandments which, of course, includes regulated Sabbath keeping. If they slip up and fail here and there with their obedience endeavours, not to worry, ‘cos God knows how hard they’re struggling to OBEY, and He will always be merciful towards them – at least that’s what they erroneously think. (See link No.s 1 and 2 below). Moreover, this means, metaphorically, they want to remain in Egypt with their garlic, cucumbers and melons, whilst delusionally thinking that they will enter The Kingdom of God in the resurrection – the Eternal Promised Land.

Hebrews 3:16-19 (MCV) For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was He grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware He that they should not enter into His Rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Now have YOU made the same catastrophic error by refusing to enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest from YOUR WORKS!!?? Or do YOU continue in trying to EARN YOUR SALVATION through OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW – The Ten Commandments!? (See link No. 4 below).

Hebrews 4:1 (MCV) Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into His Eternal Rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

Have YOU come short of it by refusing to live FULLY under His Glorious SAVING Grace?

Hebrews 4:2 (MCV) For unto us was The Kingdom Gospel preached, as well as unto them: but The Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with Faith in them that heard it.

The Word preached DID NOT PROFIT THEM! Why did it not profit them? because they wanted to remain faithless under the curse of The Law:

Galatians 3:13 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of The Law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

So listen up all you regulated Sabbath keepers out there, whether it be Saturday or Sunday Sabbaths, (see link No. 1 below) and examine yourselves through the power of the Holy Spirit, and ask yourselves this question: Is this TRUTH registering deep within me, and are your hearts pricked? I do hope so, for any form of Commandment obeying is a trampling all over Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice. I jest not when I say that it is that serious and your eternal future RESTS upon it (pun intended). (See link No. 2 below)

Hebrews 4:3 (MCV) For we which have believed do enter into rest, as He said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

A better interpretation from The Living Bible:

Hebrews 4:3 (TLB) For only we who believe God can enter into HIS PLACE OF REST. He has said, “I have sworn in my anger that those who don’t believe me will never get in,” even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began.

Here we have explained to us that only through BELIEF and FAITH and TRUST in Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) FOR EVERYTHING! can we enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest. So what the author is telling us is that once we’re Called and Chosen, Baptised and gifted with The Holy Spirit, THAT’S IT!!! we have entered into His Eternal Sabbath Rest, our names are written in The Book of Life and EVERY DAY IS NOW A SABBATH DAY! This means, in the modern vernacular, that if you want a day off from your labours or even a few days off, then take ‘em, and if you want to make one Holy to The Lord Yashua Messiah then do so, but DON’T make in binding on yourself, or on others.

Here on in from The Amplified Bible:

Hebrews 4:4-7 (TAB) For somewhere [in Scripture] He has said this about the seventh day: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; 5 and again in this, “They shall not enter My rest.” 6 Therefore, since the promise remains for some to enter His rest, and those who formerly had The Good News preached to them failed to [grasp it and did not] enter because of [their unbelief evidenced by] disobedience, 7 He again sets a definite day, [a new] “Today,” [providing another opportunity to enter that rest by] saying through David after so long a time, just as has been said before [in the words already quoted], “Today if you hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”

But what do the 21st century Pharisees do? Answer: they do exactly that, they harden their hearts and crawl back under the bondage of The Law, and by doing so fail to enter into His Eternal Sabbath Rest, and at the same time kill His Glorious Saving Grace for themselves – hence I call ‘em Grace Killers – how wretched can that be?

Hebrews 4:8-9 (TAB) [This mention of a rest was not a reference to their entering into Canaan.] For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not speak about another day [of opportunity] after that. 9 So there remains a [full and complete] Sabbath rest for the people of God.

There it is folks: A FULL AND COMPLETE SABBATH REST FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD. How plain and simple is that? The wondrous simplicity that is in Christ – 2 Corinthians 11:3.

Hebrews 4:10 (TAB) For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own. 11 Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience [as those who died in the wilderness].

So there we have it dear regulated Sabbath keepers, for I know from personal experience that many of you are devout and sincere people, especially SDAs (Seventh Day Adventists) and the people of the Worldwide Church of God splinter groups, but repentance is the only way forward for you and to shake off that curse of The Law.

The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion

cross-918459__480

Now many of you, that is, you my regular readers, will be familiar with the above expression, for I use it regularly in my articles to describe fake mainstream Christianity, or Churchianity, or the Christian RELIGION, or what some might call Christendom.

For those of you new to my work for Yashua Messiah (The Yahavah Yashua Messiah – the Lord Jesus Christ) I use it as an umbrella term to cover all the branches of so-called Christianity – Roman Catholicism; Eastern Orthodoxy (Greek and Russian); Anglicanism (AngliCAINism); Episcopalianism (American AngliCAINism), plus ALL the myriad denominations (divisions = demon-inations) of PROTESTantism.

This umbrella title also covers all the so called cults who, I might add, do not have a monopoly in cultism and/or cult behaviour. Roman Catholicism is the biggest cult of all, that is, a money making, money laundering cult based upon Simony (Simon Magus), with over a billion deluded and deceived adherents, and now controlled by the Rothschild Jew Beast Money Power Empire of Revelation.

However, having said that, I will now list the principal cult culprits, here, for your information: Jehovah’s Witnesses; The Church of The Latter Day Saints (The Mormons); The Seventh Day Adventists (SDAs); The Christadelphians; The Worldwide Church of God, (now deviously and deceptively known as The Grace Communion International), with all its splinter or spin-off groups who broke away after Herbert W. Armstrong’s era ended – Armstrong was a Judaising mongrel dog and possibly a CIA Asset.

OK, so here are the names of some of these satanic Judaising splinter groups:

Midnight Ministries – Malcom B. Heap

The Trumpet – The Philadelphia Church Of God – Gerald Flurry
The Restored Church Of God
The Living Church Of God
The Intercontinental Church Of God
The United Church Of God, An International Association
The Church Of God’s Faithful
The Independent Church Of God
The Church Of God, An International Community
The Christian Biblical Church Of God

The Continuing Church of God

I have listed the names of all these groups (and please note this list is not exhaustive) because I was once a duped member of the original Worldwide Church of God under Armstrong’s original satanic teaching, so I have a particular interest in what these satanic groups are getting up to in these last days of the last days. Needless-to-say, they are all blasphemous Judaisers and Grace killers, banging there OBEDIENCE based drums, earning their own salvation and extorting money from their duped members via their Old Covenant tithing money grabbing systems, so don’t, whatever you do, get involved with any of them.

OK, I think I have covered the bulk of what purports to be so called Christianity on the face of this satanic earth in 2017 and I call it The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.

If you know of any other major groups that claim to be Christian Churches that you think should be added to my list please let me know in the comments section below. Please note, I am aware of the Pentecostal groups and have included them as an integral of PROTESTantism.

The Cainite-Judeo-Christian-Religion = Mainstream Christians

Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV) Enter ye in at the strait (narrow) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, (Spiritual ruin) and MANY there be which go in thereat: 
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Moving on, I will now take each of the four words that make up my umbrella title, and expound on their relevance and my reasons for placing them within the title, starting with:

CAINITE

Right, why do I group all these varied and supposed Christian bodies together under the title The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion? And why in particular do I use the term ‘Cainite’ as the first part of their description? What has Cain got to do with modern, so called, Christianity or nominal fake mainstream Christianity? He and his offspring died in The Flood didn’t they? Yes they did, but his bloodline was rekindled post-flood by and through the birth of Canaan, whom Noah cursed. However, I will not expound on that story here as I deal with it in my articles elsewhere here on my blog (see link No. 1 below), but what I will do is look specifically at Cain’s behaviour which led up to his murdering his half-brother Abel. (Take note, Cain and Abel were NOT full brothers) (again, see link No. 1 below)

Now this event is as much Spiritual as it is physical and literal, and it is timeless in its importance. The spirit of this story carries forward through 6,000 years of our history to our days here in 21st century. So what ties the murder of Abel to the year 2017? Easy, sacrifices and offerings or, perhaps, what I should have said is, the RIGHT KIND of sacrifice and offering. So let’s post the story of Cain and Abel’s sacrifices and offerings:

Genesis 4:3-4 (MCV) And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto The Yahavah. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And The Yahavah had respect unto Abel and acknowledged (was pleased with) his offering:

So what’s going on here? because on the face of it, it looks like The Yahavah is being unjust toward Cain just because his offering was from his crops of the ground. We are then told that The Yahavah had respect for Abel’s offering rather than Cain’s, so what gives?

BLOOD is what gives, that is, in Abel’s sacrifice, the BLOOD of a LAMB which spills into the ground. In Cain’s offering there was NO BLOOD at all, making it a useless offering, and thereby definitely not pleasing in The Yahavah’s sight as a sacrifice.

Yashua Messiah was The Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world as it is written in the Book of Revelation:

Revelation 13:8 (MCV) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (The Adversary), whose names are NOT written in The Book of Life of The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

This means, that in the past under the Old Covenant, right and proper sacrifices to Yah should ALWAYS involve the blood of a Lamb (even before the original Passover in Egypt) with Yashua Messiah becoming the ultimate Lamb of Yah sacrifice to end ALL blood sacrifices. (Watch out for the evil blasphemous re-instatement of animal blood sacrifices in Jerusalem soon – The Abomination of Desolation.)

OK, so back to the thread. From this event we then get Cain’s jealousy of his half-brother for having found favour in The Yahavah’s sight. The half-brothers then argue with the end result of Cain killing Abel in a fit of jealous rage.

Cain, Satan’s son, slaying his half brother Abel

Now mark this event, for it is a type or forerunner or the first of multiple thousands of murders that will follow it, that is, down through the ages and even into the 21st century with real Christians (followers of Yashua Messiah – The Truth and The Way) being slain for their Faith being in Him, and Him alone, with no RELIGION (no crops of the ground). So to sum up this first part, what we have graphically displayed for us here is the first hu-man creature of RELIGION, that is, CAIN, (he was The Adversary’s offspring – his son – see link No. 2 below) slaying the first man – a son of Adam, a True believer, who was making his blood of The Lamb sacrifice to his Creator.

Now this is all correct I here you say, that’s if you are of The Truth. However, how are you making a connection from Cain and Abel to the 21st century? Again that’s easy, fake or counterfeit Christians – those of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion who believe in a fake Jesus, who never spilled his blood. This is because he doesn’t exist, and so he never died. This fake Jesus is like Cain’s offering of vegetables – there’s no blood. Ask yourself, how does a make-believe fictional character bleed and die? It doesn’t and it can’t – it would be impossible for it to do so (see link No. 3 below).

Let’s be clear about this, and get it firmly seated in our minds, only Yashua Messiah (The Yahavah Yashua Messiah) died and shed His blood for us, not their Cainite vegetable growing Jesus. So now you know why I use the word Cainite in my title the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.

JUDEO

OK, so why do I use the word ‘Judeo’ in my title? Well this should be more straight forward, and easier to understand, for Judaism is an all pervasive problem within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, a VERY BIG pervasive problem. Now make no mistake, for nearly ALL the groups within the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion practice some form of Judaism, that is, salvation by works, and/or salvation through obedience to The Law and/or obedience to the Ten Commanments or even obeying Yashua Messiah. This means that Yashua Messiah’s Saving Grace along with His Faith are either blasphemed against, that is, abused, or are totally trampled on and snuffed out – killed. Which, in turn, means they trample all over Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice, that is, His death and His resurrection. They treat Him with utter contempt, and in many cases without even realising it.

‘Judeo’ also stands for monotheism, (see link No. 4 below) in one form or another, whether it be just ONE GOD as in Judaism and Islam, rendering Yashua Messiah a non-entity, and just a creation or what looks like an afterthought, if viewed from the Yahhead’s perspective. We then have their one god within a FICTIONAL TRINITY DEITY of ONE in three and three in ONE. That means whether it’s three in ONE or ONE in three, we still have a form of monotheism rattling around in there somewhere. This is a shell game conjuring trick of now you see ONE, or it could be now you see three depending on how many magic mushrooms you have eaten LOL.

Moreover, in all Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious ‘churches’ some form of obedience will be in force, whether obedience to the Ten Commandments (The Law of Moses) or obedience to a Pope, Archbishop, cardinals, bishops, priests or some ministerial or pastor/elder hierarchy. This is the evil system of the Nicolaitans as described by Yashua Messiah in Revelation. To make things even worse, in many Protestant groups, women will be in the pulpits lording it over the men. Paul must be turning in his grave.

Furthermore, regulated Old Covenant Sabbath keeping will be the order of the day, whether seventh day or first day Sabbath keeping. There, also, will be annual pagan heathen fertility rite festivals like Christmas, Easter and Whitsun which have nothing to do with Yashua Messiah.

Within the Judeo religious Roman Cult there is actually an idolatrous ‘saint’s day’ for every single day of the year. Needless-to-say these fakes are not real saints, because in order to be a real saint you have to be called and chosen by The Father and then born of Yah (born again). No man has the power or the authority to make a man or woman a saint.

Moreover, having revealed the above deceptive points, here is what you will not find active and operational in these so called ‘churches’, that is, egalitarian Grace filled fellowships. And those with set apart Exclusive Spirit gifted teachers for new converts and beginners and overseers (shepherds) to keep a watchful eye out for spies and trouble makers (wolves) protecting the flocks in general, as was the case in the first century congregations.

CHRISTIAN

OK, the third and most deceptive word of my title – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. Why the most deceptive I hear you say? Quite simply because it deceives billions, not just millions, but billions of people across the world. This is because when they hear the word Christian or Christianity they immediately link it, erroneously, to the organised satanic religions I have listed above who pose as followers of Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ).

I go head to head daily with hundreds of lost and unsaved people on social media who accuse supposed Christians and Christianity of all manner of wickedness, historical persecutions, tortures, evils, murders and genocides. The thing is, are they are correct to do so? Yes, for the people who did these vile deeds posed as Christians, and did their satanic evil deeds in the name of Christianity, thereby bringing shame and disgrace on Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name – bringing His name into disrepute – and as wonderfully encapsulated by this famous heathen:

I like your Christ; I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

— Muhatma Gandhi

Furthermore, these so called Christian groups follow their non-Scriptural hu-man made Creeds (see link No. 4 below) or their blasphemous Statements of Beliefs, not Yashua Messiah. These legalistic creeds and statements lay down the frameworks of their hu-man made organisations and have nothing to do with the Kingdom of God Gospel message that Yashua Messiah and His Messengers (apostles) taught in the first century.

This is because they want their lemming followers to 1) believe that salvation is within their particular ‘church’ only, or through being a member of their organisation or cult only and, 2) to give their hard earned dosh or tithes to these organisations. However, if they go outside of it and leave, they’re then deemed an apostate or they’re damned to fiery hell or they’re excommunicated as a heretic. Either way, they’re toast to these lying blasphemers as they chuck their satanic hierarchical weight around.

Now which ever way we cut this, none of it is Christian. To be a Christian is one who is called and chosen by The Father to His Son Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) and who then follows Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) – that’s it, apart from full immersion Baptism into Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name alone, and the gifting of the set apart Exclusive Spirit. Once these things have occurred you are now born of Yah (born again) and you’re a Christian – a new creation, a member of The Elect (a saint) and a REAL CHRISTIAN!!

RELIGION

Oh dear what positive thing can be said about the meaningless vain pursuit of RELIGION!!?? Answer: Nothing!! (See link No. 5 below). Make sure you understand and never forget it – YAH HAS NO RELIGION. ALL religions are hu-man made on behalf of The Adversary himself. ALL religions worship The Adversary in one way or another and NONE of them worship Yashua Messiah and that includes??? Yes, you guessed it – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion. Yes, hu-man beings and men dress their stupid religions up to make out they are worshipping Yashua Messiah, but the opposite is always The Truth – they ALL worship The Adversary!!

Now here’s a little test for you. Just search The Four Gospels in the KJV Bible for the word ‘religion’ and see if you can find it. OK, I jest, don’t worry yourselves, for I have already done so and I can assure you that it’s not there. However feel free to do your own research, as you should.

Furthermore, Yashua Messiah never uttered the word, RELIGION nor did He come to this earth in order to start a religion, nor did He instruct His Learners (disciples) in the ways of RELIGION. Religion = the vanity and egos of hu-man beings and wayward men. So there you have it – The Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion!

Adendum:

Since writing part one of this short series of articles I have since learned an interesting fact or two and it looks like the term “Judeo-Christian” is not that old.

Here is a segment from a sermon given by Pastor Don Elmore and copied and recorded by “The Fellowship of God’s Covenant People” on their web page (I do not recommend Pastor Elmore or The Fellowship of God’s Covenant People as it looks like they, themselves, are Law invoking Judaisers). However, here is his piece:

The term Judeo-Christianity did not originate with the name of a Jewish synagogue or a Christian Church or a merging of the two. It didn’t come from any views of any of their own theological rabbis or theologians. In fact, it originated from an English novelist who was born in the land where The Serpent was blown–India. The novelist lived in India till he was five years old and then went back to England to live, while his father remained in India. The Englishman then went back to India to work for about five years before he returned to England. His name: Eric Arthur Blair. You probably never heard of him by his birth name. But I would say that probably all of you know his pen name, George Orwell. He is famous for his books ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘1984’.

Eric or George wrote this hyphenated word, “Judeo-Christian” as a linguistic attempt to fight against anti-Jewishness in the late 1930s. By using “Judeo-Christian,” Orwell meant to indicate tolerance and solidarity with a persecuted religious minority (i.e. the Jews). The National Conference of Christians and Jews (now called the National Conference for Community and Justice) subsequently adopted the term, and the Four Chaplains — a rabbi and three Christian ministers who in 1943 together gave their lives to rescue others aboard their sinking ship—became an icon of the postwar understanding of America’s religious pluralism.

But one might think that Christianity and Judaism are theologically linked in a way that merits a special term to describe their shared history and belief system. But this notion fails to hold up under scrutiny. The Jewish theologian Eliezer Berkovitz perhaps put it most concisely when he wrote that: “Judaism is Judaism because it rejects Christianity, and Christianity is Christianity because it rejects Judaism.””

More here from Jewpedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judeo-Christian_ethics

In the above Jewpedia article we can see lying propaganda galore about the Jew Marxist subversive Franklin Roosevelt and how he and his fellow Jews set about the task of politicising American mainstream Christianity with the Judeo-Marxist dogma. They also used this dogma as a tool and/or reason to wage a ‘righteous war’ against Germany and Japan whilst, in truth, Germany and Japan were far more righteous than the Jew tool nations Britain, France and The USA.

The above was graphically confirmed by the Polish ambassador of the day, Count Jerzy Potocki, to the US who reported back to Warsaw that President Roosevelt was working fanatically to develop a ‘war psychosis’ in the minds of the America people. As evidenced here:

http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v04/v04p135_Weber.html/

Moreover, today we now have Cultural Jew Marxist liberals by the thousands who pose as Christians, but are, in reality, just Yahless politicised wretches who promote their fake Marxist ‘Jesus’. Not only that, but freely use their Cultural Jew Marxist slogans like ‘hate’, ‘hater’, ‘hate speech’, ‘bigot’, ‘Nazi’, ‘xenophobe’, ‘white supremacist’ etc. etc. with great regularity. You name ’em and they use ’em, delusionally and self-righteously thinking that they are doing The Yahavah’s work, when all the while they are doing Karl Marx’s work! (see link No. 6 below).

So there you have it – the rotten satanic Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion laid bare for all to see.

Revelation 18:4 (MCV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Are You a 21st Century Foolish Galatian?

So how can anyone be a “Foolish Galatian” in the 21st century? They were just a first century phenomenon weren’t they? And only a serious problem for Paul and all the other Grace filled Assemblies in Galatia, surely? How can there be such a problem today? This must be nonsense, I hear you say. Well, it’s not as nonsensical as you might think and, in order to get a full understanding of what it’s all about, we need to take a look at Galatians to gain a better knowledge of what Paul was having to deal with.

We also need to know how the: “Justification through obedience to The Law” problem, for Grace filled and saved people, has never gone away. This vile evil concept is still with us today and do not err in your thinking, by making light of it:

Galatians 3:1 (KJV) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not ‘obey’ (a corrupt translation – should read “you who have not been convinced of or persuaded by:-”) The Truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (Brackets and italics mine)

Galatians 3:1 (Amplified Version) O you poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom—right before your very eyes—Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified?

From the Amplified Version we get a better insight into how dumb and stupid these people were and how dumb and stupid modern Galatian people are as well. Let’s look at verse 2 for our proof and evidence:

Galatians 3:2 (KJV) This only would I learn of you, Received ye The Spirit by the works of The Law, or by The Hearing of Faith?

Galatians 3:2 (Amplified Version) Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive The [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying The Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [The Message of The Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a Law of Rituals or from a Message of Faith?]

So here’s a question for all you blasphemers out there who think you can be saved by OBEDIENCE to The Commandments: Did you receive the gift of The Holy Spirit as a result of obeying The Commandments or by hearing The Message of Faith and BELIEVING it?

Let’s put this another way: Did you do anything or contribute anything by way of obedience to The Commandments in order to receive this free undeserved gift? If you did, let’s hear about it ‘cos I love a good laugh at the expense of vain puffed-up fools who think they can earn their own salvation by obedience to The Commandments.

Paul then begins to cement his case:

Galatians 3:3 (KJV) Are ye so foolish? having begun in The (Holy) Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (Brackets mine)

Here again we can see how these stupid people had begun in The Holy Spirit which means that they were called by The Father to His Son by The Holy Spirit, but then said: “No thanks, we know a better way!!” And here is the first example of this evil mind set:

John 6:65-66 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that many of His Learners (disciples) went back, and walked no more with Him.

These numb skull stiff necked people were just like The Galatians – they were precursors of those that Paul had to deal with later on. They thought they knew a better way, a way based upon their own initiative and motivation, their own efforts and their own vain imaginings of salvation under their own fuel and steam and not to mention their own terms and conditions. These bods had no use for The Holy Spirit, why would they, they were self-sufficient via their own righteousness through obedience to The Law – The Commandments.

Move forward a decade or so, to Paul’s time, and we then have these same kinds of vile wretched people who thought that The Holy Spirit’s saving Power was not enough i.e. NOT GOOD ENOUGH for them, can you believe that? So they re-invoked The Law – The Commandments, and obedience to same, in order to become ‘more righteous’ (chuckle, chuckle, chuckle) than their brothers and sisters living under Yashua Messiah’s Glorious Saving Grace being led by The Holy Spirit.

When we stop and think about this, it can only be summed up as gross mind-numbing blasphemous stupidity. What is even more mind-numbing and amazing is The Truth that these same types of stupid people are still with us today and yet, at the same time, profess to be Christians and/or followers of The Way – Yashua Messiah – how does that work!!??

Let’s be clear about this because elsewhere Paul makes it very plain:

Galatians 2:16 (KJV) Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of The Law, but by The Faith of Jesus Christ, even (so that) we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by The Faith of Christ, and not by the works of The Law: for by the works of The Law shall no flesh be justified. (Brackets and emphasis mine)

Now we must fully comprehend the points Yashua Messiah is explaining here, through Paul:

Point 1) No man is justified i.e. made righteous by the works of The Law. This includes obedience to The Ten Commandments. How do we know that? Easy, because Sabbath Day observance is no longer required under Grace. Everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who have entered into Yashua Messiah’s Sabbath Rest = everyday is now a Sabbath Day for those who believe totally in Him for their salvation. See Hebrews Chapters 3 and 4 and then read it and internalise it.

Point 2) Mankind is justified only by Yashua Messiah’s Faith i.e. HIS FAITH, NOT OUR FAITH. Yashua Messiah gives us Faith, along with Grace, so that we can believe. Without the free gifts of His Faith and His Grace we would not be able to believe and then build our faith for rewards only upon that Foundation.

Point 3) We are then justified by His Faith and Paul makes that very clear with his statement: “That we might be justified by The Faith of Christ.” Get this clear in your minds, folks, and written on your hearts: YOUR FAITH does not feature in this arrangement, so YOUR FAITH does not feature at all in your salvation – period.

OK, let’s move on, because Paul now starts to lay it on the line:

Galatians 2:17 (KJV) But if seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also were found to be sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? Let it not be!

So, if we claim to be justified in, through, and by Yashua Messiah’s Sacrifice, His Faith and His Grace and are also found to be sinners, what is going on? Can sinners ever be justified? Can sinners enter The Kingdom of God? Can blemished and spotted bridal gowns attend The Wedding Feast? Nay, God forbid. Hence Paul asks can Yashua Messiah be a pastor of sin? Yet what points out our sin? What reveals our sin? What condemns us for our sins? The Law and The Commandments reveal and point out our sins and then condemns us. So is Yashua Messiah a Pastor of The Law and thereby condemning us or is He a Pastor of Truth, Love, Mercy, Redemption, Forgiveness, Faith and Grace?

Let’s remind ourselves:

Romans 8:1 (KJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus.

If there is now no condemnation for those IN Yashua Messiah where has The Law gone and what need is there for The Law and/or The Commanndments? The Law/Commandments or The Whole Law and the ensuing condemnation go hand in hand, as does The Law and obedience, so if there is now no more condemnation how can there be any Law over us? How can there be any need for obedience to The Law or The Commandments if they are no longer over us and condemning us?

Answers on the back of a postage stamp, thank you.
