Well, you must also look at the fact that you are trying to justify your statement with finding scripture which may quote some of the words you have said, but is not a general strong point or teaching, it is a mention, but not a teaching, that is where you must base your belief, not on a extrapolation, but an old and new testament teaching, thus you must recant your assertion, both Gary, and myself have confirmed the evidence of many miracles, I by my own eyes, and hands do testify to these things that God has done in the name of our Lord, if Christ be in you.

Therefore, the spirit of err is pervasive, you don't have a teaching in the word which supports your assertion of the New Testament trumping Gods use of Miracles. Thus you must reassess where you have obtained this theory, and put it back where you got it, and move on in Christ with us. If you find you have dug yourself in a whole, don't make it a pit, put the shovel down and let me offer you my hand to get out of that whole.

take with you the study logic, that the false prophet (Joseph Smith), not that you should be compared to such, but his calamity offers a teachable moment. Fore, he based his teaching on incomplete sentences, slight references of near mentions, and not the main teaching of the texts, also he tried to find texts to support whatever popped up in his demonic, dishonest mind; better, let scripture unfold itself as to what you will glean as doctrine, not the other way around, I think you know what I mean.

Good luck, follow what example Christ has set, don't worry if it seems that it may contradict what you feel you know, just follow what he did and says.

Fore, if the likes of Peter had to say that Paul being so well learned in the Law of God, that it is easy to misunderstand him if you don't have knowledge, how much should we seek to understand 1Pet2:12.

Read one of the 1st books of the Torah, and see just how particular God is when he is giving Moses His ordinances, He has not given any ordinances through Christ, to drop the Sabbath. Christ would've reiterated that somewhere?

Therefore, enjoy the upcoming Sabbath, welcome, Shalom, and enjoy putting God above all concerns on that day, let me know how improves your walk after words, I'd like to hear about it...The weekly Sabbath begins the evening sundown on Friday, till the evening sundown on Saturday. I would cook the meals for that day a day in advance, and thus spend it resting, studying, and sharing the word of God, over all, delight your self in the Lord.

Finally, when Jesus taught on the Mount of Olives, he referenced the future, and the Law in a statement, if any man shall break one of these (above) least commandments, and shall teach men, he shall be called least in the Kingdom of God.Mat 5:19. He is saying after this day, and then he references in heaven, and then if any man, these are all references to future tense far long after His crucifixion, burial and resurrection. Therefore, we must conclude, that with his last statements before in Matthew 24:2-3 obey the ordinances and laws of God as a culture, having all faith in Christ our Priest, Advocate, intercessor, and Mediator in the Grace of God, remembering that the very reasonable laws of God being natural to us (Mat 11:30), now that it has been written on our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who keeps us to the end, if we follow him in these things we shall do well.

Nick, Your allegations that you and Gary are miracle workers and have performed many miracles does not convince me of your teachings, no matter how sincere you might sound to yourself. The devil can mimic miracles too. "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be... Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres [pharos occult practitioners] withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was." (2 Timothy 3:1-2, 8-9) Satan can perform miracles (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) and we read of "the spirits of devils, working miracles" (Revelation 16:14). The Bible tells us that satanic activity is going to ramp up at the end of the age, so if you think I can be persuaded by a little illusion or trickery, or even what appears to be a genuine miracle, it ain't going to happen. Sorry.

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." (2 Timothy 3:13)

Wow Gary, that's alot of wind, your lungs must feel a great relief, unfortunately, you are incorrect. Here is how.

Yet, regarding Noel, you are correct, I didn't comment back to Noel, because she wasn't afraid to add to the scriptures what wasn't there. Deu12:32, She has also presumed to offer a comment to me without investigating the Greek language; & using MIA as 1st, when clearly its meaning is (one), not knowing that Protos is the Greek term for (1st), which isn't in the Greek Manuscripts, nor Lexicon for that verse, nor is it yet in Strong's.

As far as Noel's fearless (2Corinth7:15)statement that the law of Moses is "for the Jews only!" God contradicts her, here are a few: (Exo12:49, Lev24:22, Num15:16, Num 15:29,Heb 4:2 says we received the same gospel as they, (Israel), Jesus said Preach the gospel to every creature.(Mark16:15),(Col1:23)(Isa56:6-7):[All Nations.] Mat24:2-3.

Perhaps it's why Paul in Titus 2:12 suffered "not a woman to teach", I felt it would be fruitless to conjecture with such an unscrupulous, and presumptuous scoffer like that. Fore, she seems very authoritative, but couldn't be more wrong. Deut 18:22.

I laugh at your 'church fathers' business of contradicting the scriptures with their edicts, I mean whats the difference in the pharisees of Christ day & the Pharisaical church fathers of your day? Mat15:9, Mar7:7, Col 2:22, Tit 1:14.

Your question on Galatians: your argument is based on the Galatians being believers at first, & returning to the law, however, they were not believers, but pagans returning to pagan practices. Gal 4:8. 4:8, "whom were by nature not gods." so, they could not be going back to the law, they were pagans previously, so the "weak and beggarly things" were not God's commandments, but their previous pagan celebrations, & activities.

Now Paul was a lawyer in the law of Moses, so his understanding is way higher than yours & mine, even peter says: 2Pe3:16. hard to understand him.

Now, concerning the question posed to me initially, as to the performance of Miracles from our Lord.

The answer is yes, I have been the used as the hand of the Lord: fore, as I drove by, I saw a dead woman, who's blood was a block long trail & a pool under her body which was flattened by a truck, and died,and who's head had been covered over; loosing all of her blood in the streets. I prayed and not more than 2 minutes passed before I received power in my right forearm, which proceeded down to my hand, & into the woman, she rose up, & looked at me, as though she'd been awakened from a sleep for weeks. The same prayer for deaf ears, I prayed, and was hunted down the next day to be told by the miracle recipient, that his hearing improved 40% according to his doctors exam.

Now, this is to refute Noel's false assertion of the (ceasing of miracles). Because I attribute them to a close spiritual war time relationship with the Lord, that entails, short sin accounts: constant confession & repentance of any sin, knowledgeable prayer daily, & a fervent spiritual prayer life warring against spiritual enemies, over all it is faith in God's obligation to His Word, love, willingness to give miracles to people because he loves them, & rewards a relationship of faith, obedience, but not legalism. I'm not saying circumcision, but to obey the laws possible to be obeyed, but Jesus takes the place of all of the required sin sacrifices, & yes to Noel's credit, medical, police, & mandatory positions are excused as doing good on the Sabbath. Mark3:4

Keeping the Sabbath was the first thing God Hallowed on Earth Gen2:2-3it is both a commandment(Exo20:11), it is observed in the 1,000 yrs Millennium (Isa 66:22-23), and thus far it has never been revoked by Abraham, Moses, the Prophets, Christ Mat24:2-3, nor his disciples. God gave Moses the 10 Commandments twice, (Exo32:19)(Exo34:1).

God's command to Keep the Sabbath holy, in its proper form, gives the Christian a day every week to submit his soul & Spirit unto the Lord above what the world calls important. it enables a retooling of spiritual sensitivity, physical rest, enables a God centered day, that is a signal to the rest of the World whom you serve.

Sunday is not hollowed by God? 1Chron 21:24, the heart of God says: "I will not sacrifice to the Lord, that which costs me nothing!"

Have you considered that all of the Messiah's messages, & His disciples were direct references to the Law of God-(Moses Lev 19:18)? even that of the Disciples? That Christ actually stated in (Mat24:2-3) we must do the word of God.

Nick, I would first like to give you a simple example of how easily you can be deceived and come to wrong conclusions.

First of all, I am not a woman.

Secondly, you and Gary say I am adding to the Scriptures. That is a serious offence and any time I have quoted the Scriptures it has been in quotation marks of the KJV.

Thirdly, you stated that I gave you comment "without investigating the Greek". First of all, do you know what the 9th commandment is? You better go look it up as it appears that you have forgotten what it says. My concordance and lexicon is always at my side when I am studying. Although "mia" is usually translated "one" it is also translated "first" eight times in the KJV especially in connection with the word "week". Furthermore, I would rather stick with the 54 godly translators of the KJV (most of whom were fluent in many of the oriental languages) than to trust your misinterpretation of the text. Furthermore, your desire for Sabbath keeping appears to be blinding you to the plain text of the Scriptures as previously quoted to you. "The first day of the week (Gr: Mia sabbaton) cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre...Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week (Gr: Mia sabbaton), when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you." (John 20:1, 19) Now I have one simple question for you. Did Jesus rise from the dead on the "first day of the week" or not?

Fourthly, you are once again are bearing false witness alleging that I said, "the law of Moses is "for the Jews only!"" Never said that at all. I did however quote to you Exodus 31:17 which states, "Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever". If you are not a physical descendant of Abraham you are NOT a child of Israel. What is the greatest tragedy, is that in this same statement of yours you appear to equate "the law of Moses" with the "gospel" that Jesus told His disciples to preach. You need to seriously examine yourself whether you be in the faith my friend as "the god of this world [satan] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious GOSPEL of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:4)

Fifthly, Your allegations that you are one who can perform miracles does not convince me, no matter how sincere you might sound to yourself. The devil can mimic miracles too. "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be... Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres [pharos occult practitioners] withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was." (2 Timothy 3:1-2, 8-9) Satan can perform miracles (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) and we read of "the spirits of devils, working miracles" (Revelation 16:14).

I am not trying to come across as mean spirited or condemnatory, but in love trying to reveal to you that you are in a serious compromise of the faith which was once delivered to the saints.

I gave you Scriptures that correct you and you ignored them.

What you believe is error. What I've told you, I heard from the Lord. Take it or leave it, but it's unwise to put words in my mouth or pretend that I'm a parrot of men like you. There is NO WAY that you would have embraced the error you have without being encouraged to do so deceivers. You didn't get your doctrine from the Lord without agreement and input from men. You DID NOT lean wholly on the Lord's Spirit in establishing what you believe. You got it from men. To deny that is to lie. How do I know that? Because the Spirit of God doesn't teach people what you believe.

Regarding your great presumption on what you think I believe, take MY WORDS at face value and don't pretend that I said anything that I didn't say, e.g., "I laugh at your 'church fathers' business..."

You know nothing whereof you speak. To assume you know anything of "church fathers" in my regard is to "answer a matter before you hear it" and is "folly and shame." Prov 18:13

To attack men's doctrines and attribute them to me is more folly and shame for I believe 1Jn 2:27 and if I don't hear the Spirit bear witness to a man's speech, I don't receive it. It keeps one out of many deceptions, including the ones you and Noel are in.

Regarding the healings you referenced, aren't you glad for the Lord's mercy?

Yet, your embracing the Law is clearly contrary to the teaching of the New Covenant in so many Scriptures and contrary to the witness of the Spirit and the testimony of Jesus, yet that doesn't mean the Law isn't holy and righteous and good. It's just that we have A BETTER COVENANT BASED ON BETTER PROMISES. Those words, as weighty and precious as they are, go in one ear and out the other with you, for you like "the old wine" and the old covenant, demonstrating that you don't have an ear to the Spirit or that passage (Luke 5:36-37) would have given you serious pause.

If the Lord only dealt with us because doctrine was perfect, none of us would receive anything, but He is merciful to our errors. You still need to learn and understand that Jesus is BETTER than the Law and His covenant replaced the Law (again, which was NEVER given to the Gentiles and if you think it was, find the Scriptures that say so or repent for believing a lie).

You don't "rightly divide the Word of Truth" because you don't hear the Spirit tell you where to divide it. You FAIL to understand when Jesus' ministry changed and that darkness keeps you from understanding why there is such a great difference in how Jesus instructed the disciples to pray in "the Lord's prayer" and how He instructed them just before His crucifixion in John 14-15. Most people don't understand these things because they don't value the voice of the Spirit enough and their faith is undeveloped. Remember that Jesus said blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness; He didn't tell them to abide in the Law, but to abide in Him and in His Word. Jn 8:31-32 You're just a Judaizer. Read your Bible more carefully and see how widely accepted the Judaizers were in the Church. They, like you, even thought they were the ones who were in charge! Yet, that didn't keep Paul from desiring they mutilate themselves.

If you'd take your perverse fixation off the Law and put it on the things of the Spirit (IN the Scriptures), it would help break that bondage you have.

Jesus' superiority to the Law is right there in YOUR New Testament, IF your NT hasn't been perverted by legalists. For example there are those who replaced the Greek word "nomos" (Strong's G3551) with "Torah," in their arrogant self-righteousness, thinking they were "helping God," not realizing that God cursed those who change His Word. It is a serious offense, but is common among your ilk because you value your opinions over the Scriptures because of your great PRIDE in your false reliance upon the Law.

It is grave error and the Spirit would correct you if you would let Him.

Part 1

Nick, you INSIST on erring greatly, EVEN THOUGH Noel instructed you well. Yet, having seen thousands like you, bound by unbelief, pride, lying religious spirits and doctrines of demons, I was certain you would reject it--as you did, being so obviously bound by the same spirit as the Judaizers, against whom Paul spoke SO STRONGLY that he, IN SCRIPTURE, wished that they would mutilate their sex organs! You've not paid nearly enough attention to Galatians and far too much attention to religious legalists who have poisoned you with religious bondage that is anti-Christ. You need to learn to hear the voice of God. (Jn 10:27 1Jn 2:27) I couldn't be more serious. Your legalism, because satan quotes Scripture to you, is deadly, yet you think it's God. IT'S NOT! Look at the Mormons and the Jehovah's Witnesses and the many others who are deceived and deluded with false doctrine. THIS IS SERIOUS.

Noel's only error that I saw was this comment:

"The miracles, signs and wonders that the apostles did had nothing to do with law keeping, as you appear to claim, no, these were done by the apostles to confirm their word in the absence of the New Testament canon of the Scriptures."

You won't be convinced by reason for you're bound by a lie; a deception, not by faulty logic and the Lord doesn't compel us to believe the truth, but I hope Noel will simply choose to believe the Scriptures and reject the unscriptural teaching of men that has put him in unbelief on the manifestations of the Holy Spirit about which unbelieving believers have lied to him.

What I just said is that an "argument" (Scripture voiced by men) won't convince you but it might convince Noel. You must learn to hear and believe the voice of God and believe the testimony of Scripture not lying men who have deceived you.

We're NOT "under the law" and if we're Gentiles, never were. As NT Believers, we're commanded to walk by the Spirit for the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. (Rom 8:2) You should take a long, thoughtful look at 1Cor 15:56, which tells us that the Law ensures our failure. "The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law." That's not an error or a misprint. It's just a Scripture that YOU HAVE REFUSED TO BELIEVE, along with many others. Again, the STRENGTH OF SIN IS THE LAW. You want to always be bound by sin? Keep listening to the Law and all the OT Scriptures that reinforce it and if God's Word is true, you will STAY bound by sin.

It takes revelation from God to understand why God gave the Law to the Jews and I'm not going to take the time to teach you here, but, contrary to what many have said, it wasn't to "let them know what to do to please Him."

In the NEW COVENANT, Jesus told us to obey His commandments, not His Father's. What are Jesus' commandments? Love God, love our neighbor, love our brothers AS HE LOVES US and forgive everyone. There is no strength in sin in those commandments but they are still IMPOSSIBLE to do outside of the love of God by the grace given through the Holy Spirit.

Just look at the "new" commandment--to love our brothers as He loves us. How is that? With amazing forbearance that doesn't get impatient, angry, put-out, annoyed, offended, jealous, petty, hurt, selfish, self-willed or self-serving. It REQUIRES agape to do that and nothing less will suffice.

You need to repent for your UNBELIEF and BELIEVE THE NEW COVENANT! This is a GREAT ERROR on your part. You THINK (but you're pretending) that you're honoring God with your "respect" for the Law, but God doesn't see it that way. He SEES IT AS UNBELIEF because you're making the same error as the Israelites in thinking you can please God by obeying Him, when Paul (AND Peter--Acts 15:10) made it PERFECTLY CLEAR that the Law was given to (The Law "shut up all under sin" (Gal 3:22) and "God has shut up all in disobedience" (NASB) and "God hath concluded them all in unbelief" (KJV) SO you're just walking in self-deception and foolish pride to pretend that you can please God by keeping the Sabbath and/or keep the Law.

YOU NEED TO REPENT FOR YOUR UNBELIEF AND REFUSAL TO BELIEVE THE GOSPEL AND NOT CASTING ALL YOUR CARE ON HIM. (1Pet 5:7)

Another word on your error regarding Sabbath keeping by Gentiles is the ENTIRE chapter of Romans 14, esp. vv. 4-6. If you wish to keep Sabbath (BY FAITH) then you have that liberty, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE THE LIBERTY TO IMPOSE IT ON OTHERS.

Gary, (attention: Nick), First of all, just in case you have concluded that I do not believe in miracles, let me state, that could not be further from the truth. As far as I know, only atheist do not believe in miracles. Do miracles happen today? Absolutely. But here is the difference between what the Scriptures teach about miracles and what most charismatics believe.

The Bible clearly teaches that God answers prayer that is according to His will and in His own good timing. He also answers prayer that is not according to His will with a clear No! Does He heal the sick today? "Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:13-16)

"If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:11-13)

So we can clearly see that God is a God who answers the prayers of His children, and He may even do it miraculously if it suits His will. Just last week an elderly lady in Mexico was telling me she was feeling sick. I did not waste any time telling her that I would be praying to the Most High God for her quick recovery as that is how I believe the Lord God answers prayer. However, even the miracle working apostle Paul could not get God to heal his infirmity (2 Corinthians 12:7-10).

I am sure thus far you will fully agree. But here is the difference. I think the Scriptures clearly bear out that the sign gift of miracles has passed away with the apostles. There was a time for Jesus to walk this earth and show forth His mighty miracles in fulfillment of Scripture, but that time is now passed with His ascension into heaven and the death of His apostles. We can now read what is written that we might believe (John 20:30-31). We do not need any miracles for that. An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign, but blessed are they who have not seen and yet believe.

Now you said my earlier statement was, "completely without Scriptural basis for Jesus NEVER SAID that God would confirm the Word with signs following "in the absence of the New Testament canon." That's adding to the Word of God."

Well here is the basis for my argument. The end of Mark chapter 16 is finalized with the great commission and Jesus saying, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto THEM, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And THEY went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with THEM, and CONFIRMING THE WORD WITH SIGNS FOLLOWING. Amen." (Mark 16:17-20) Now who was Jesus talking to? The apostles. The Lord was working with THEM. And what was He doing? Right! CONFIRMING THE WORD WITH SIGNS FOLLOWING! Now was the New Testament Scriptures written at that time? No!

Now these mighty miracles were the "signs of an apostle". "And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles." (Acts 2:43) "And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people ... And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them." (Acts 5:12-13) "Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds." (2 Corinthians 12:12)

The writers of Hebrews also states, "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which AT THE FIRST began to be SPOKEN by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by THEM that HEARD him; God also bearing THEM witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?" (Hebrews 2:3-4) The apostles were with the Lord Jesus since John the Baptist (Mark 3:14, Acts 1:21-22, Luke 1:2) and were eye witnesses of the resurrection, and ministers of His word. And after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus they went about everywhere preaching the word, the Lord confirming their word with signs following. They had no new testament Bibles to hand out that time. The printing press was not even invented at that time, but slowly the scribes began to make copies of their letters and slowly but surely the canon of Scripture was complete, nothing lacking.

The Lord had confirmed that which he had spoken to His apostles, bearing them witness with signs and wonders and mighty deeds. They cast out demons, healed the sick and the lame, raised the dead. They turned the world upside down. Now all this was being done in the absence of the NT Scriptures. This is very clear. The apostle Paul had said, "For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed, Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ." (Romans 15:18-19) The miracles authenticated their word bringing the gentiles unto obedience to the gospel. The Scriptures were first given orally as they went about the countryside preaching the gospel and eventually as time went on the epistles were written to those churches that were established in the countries they went and the letters written to them were eventually added to the OT canon of the Scriptures to complete the Scripture that was forever settled in heaven.

Part 2

It's *your* responsibility to "repent and believe the gospel," not a perverse mix of the Old Covenant and the New. A diligent, honest study of the New will show you that the two covenants are completely separate in every way, though the New is hidden in typology of the Old. In dealing with the Gentiles, the ONLY issues the Jews raised were "from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled (which Paul later addressed with even greater wisdom) and from fornication." (Acts 15:29)

Now, Nick, this was the ONLY Church Council in the entire Bible and James clearly said that "it seemed GOOD TO THE HOLY GHOST AND TO US" (Acts 15:28) to mention nothing but the things mentioned, so your harping on the Sabbath shows you've chosen to be influenced by people who have disregarded the specific SCRIPTURES I mentioned or you're simply of that same spirit that holds to men's opinions OVER THE AUTHORITY OF THE VOICE OF GOD AND HOLY SCRIPTURE.

Note 1Cor 2:14: But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

Simply put, your carnal reasoning isn't sufficient and that's what you're relying on in making the unrighteous judgment you're making. Jesus is greater than the Law and you need revelation of how greatly and thoroughly the New Covenant supersedes and has replaced the Old. (Heb 8:13) The Old was given only to the Jews and Jesus went to the Gentiles ONLY because the Jews REFUSED their Messiah.

Simply put, you need to learn to hear the voice of the Spirit of God and be taught by Him. You've exalted your understanding over the voice of the Spirit and that is idolatry.

Now, in regard to Noel's remark which I referenced above, it is contrary to Scripture and, like the doctrine of the Judaizers, this too is a doctrine of men, completely without Scriptural basis for Jesus NEVER SAID that God would confirm the Word with signs following "in the absence of the New Testament canon." That's adding to the Word of God.

God confirmed Jesus' word with signs following and HE IS THE WORD OF GOD there are NO SCRIPTURES ANYWHERE (two or three would be required according to Deut 17:6 & 19:15 in the Old Testament and Matt 18:16 & 2Cor 13:1 in the New, with the additional confirmations of Matt 18:20, 1Cor 14:29, 1Tim 5:19 and Heb 10:28) that teach miracles, signs and wonders will cease before "the perfect" comes, which is the new kingdom in the resurrection (some consider it Jesus, but it doesn't matter, His presence and His rule are essentially the same thing because when He returns, He will take over and rule and a new order will be set up and we won't have the need for signs to accompany the Word because "everyone will know the Lord." (Jer. 31:34, Heb 8:11)

Of course, the OBVIOUS confirmation that I'm speaking the correct understanding of the verse that Noel's been taught wrongly (1Cor 13:10) is immediately made obvious simply by typing "miracles" into your favorite search engine and find the multiplied thousands of miracles that have been done in the name of Jesus. We all know someone who has experienced the supernatural power of God in the form of a miracle, a visitation, an instantaneous healing, etc., and I've seen God do dozens of supernatural miracles (that defy natural law--just to make it clear that I'm not speaking "loosely") right in front of my face.

ottom line: Unbelief is the greatest sin and if we're not just like Jesus, then there is unbelief in our lives so we all need to be humble, honest and recognize how offensive unbelief is to God and Jesus wasn't just mouthing empty words when He said, "When the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" It is IMPOSSIBLE to please God without faith and when we consider the power and specificity of faith, an honest examination of Rom 14:23b "...whatever is not of faith is sin" tells us, if we're honest, that most of our life is sin because we're not walking in faith or by faith in every volitional act. Faith and doubt are incompatible. Faith and unbelief are incompatible. Doubt and unbelief are sin as Rom 14:23b so clearly reveals. That's not to condemn us. IT'S JUST TO ENCOURAGE US TO TELL THE TRUTH, NOT LIE ABOUT OUR UNBELIEF and understand the basis of our relationship with God is FAITH AND NOT LAW!

Argument from a Galatia point of view:
Galatians 4:8-10, the Galatians were gentiles, vs 8

shows they didn't know God at one time, in vs 9,

turning back, means they were turning back to their

pages ways=works for salvation, as they had in

paganism, which means they were beginning to serve

God, they way they served pagans, thus they were

twisted in their doctrine of salvation; basing it on

keeping the law for salvation not salvation by faith

through grace, and keeping the law because of

salvation as Christ, whom was salvation did.

Now, back to Paul's instructions in Acts 20:7: Paul and the churches were actually counting down the 7 Sabbaths as commanded in the law of Moses,
because the 1st day after the 7th Sabbath is

Shavuot, or Pentecost: on Pentecost Moses came down

with the Law of God, and on the Pentecost the Holy

Spirit came down and wrote the Law on our hearts.

When you truthfully look at it, we see Christ

observing the Sabbath both before Crucifixion: Luke

2:22, Luk 4:16, Mat12:1, and after his resurection

the early church making haste to keep the Sabbath,

the day of pentecost and the other known Torah holy

days, & the law of God:Acts 21:26, Acts2:1,

1Cor16:8, Acts 21:26, Acts20:16, Acts 13:14, Acts

13:27, sinners, or gentiles new when & where the

early church would be: Acts 13:42, Acts 13:44, Acts

15:21, Acts 17:2 and all the holy days prescribed by

God in the Torah observed.

We also see the Holy Ghost's empowerment received on

the day of Pentecost observance: Luke 24:49, Acts 2:1.

It is not lawful to travel on the Sabbath, therefore
Mary, and the other women waited until the end of
the Sabbath even to see about the tomb of the
Messiah, Mat 28:1, she was keeping Christ' commandments.

(Jesus' custom) was to keep the Sabbath, Luke 4:16
in the same way that all of Israel had observed the
law of God from the beginning & as we should today.
Christ taught the word of God inside & outside of
the assembly on the Sabbath, Luke 4:31, that's what
I call having church.

No where does it say he taught
to not keep the Sabbath, does it? No!

Christ never instituted a different law, only
expounded on the known law, saying to keep it is the
law of love: There is only one set of laws of God,
for both Jews and Gentiles not 2: Exo 12:49, Lev
24:22, Num 15:16.

Finally, as the Messiah, Christ instructed the
apostles, & left no doubt that keeping the law of
Moses was his general theme throughout all of his teaching, in Mat24:2-4: when he mentions "the seat of Moses", as to what commandments we are to keep.

Just like Israel of old, we as a church, can be left weak and ineffective by disobeying God's
commandments Lev26:17, causing God to not be with us, and consequently leaving us cut off from the power of God, leaving us powerless as it left them, being defeated by any of their enemies when God was not with them.

This is exactly what will happen to the church if we continue to disobey God's laws.The promise: "Ye shall do greater works than these": Ever see anyone raised from the dead, or healed of quadriplegic, or palsy instantly? No? Why? Jesus said: "greater works shall he (Holy Ghost) do?" We see Peter's (one of us) very shadow healing people, Acts 5:15 fulfilling Christ' words on his course, but then after 300th yr of the early church not much miracles, Why?

We, as Christians, have forgotten our Hebrew root, that we are now Israelite too, in the Olive tree: Jer11:16.Rom11:17-18.Citizens of Israel Isa56:3-5, Eph2:11-12; Phil3:20. and that there is one law not two :Lev24:22, Num15:6,-29th.

What happened? How were we deceived? We have been unwittingly commandeered and falsely commanded by Constantine (Catholicism)see ["Rome's challenge" ]
{www.immaculateheart.com/maryonline}Dec2003,] to disobey the law of God's Sabbath, by making 2 laws, and to instead keep Sunday worldly holy, as the official church holy day: Deu 12:32 I ask you, who died for you? Him or the Messiah, Christ? The Church Fathers or the Messiah Christ? Follow whom is the Lord.

Yea, The protestants surely ran for their lives from Catholicism, but didn't run far enough to abandon all of the catholic lawless ways, and to follow the law of God, as Christ commanded. keeping the Sabbath holy is a sign between you and the Lord Exo 31:13 :Eze 20:20 Exo 31:17.Keeping his Sabbath holy is a light to the nations when we keep his commandments Deut4:6, John 8:14, Christ is our light, we are the worlds light to Christ, Isa4:26, Mat5:14.

Have a great Sabbath & talk to you next Sabbath,

Shalom in Yeshua Ha Massiac:)

Hello Nick, I would have to agree that if one is professing to be a Christian but is not following Christ, they are only deceiving themselves. When a person believes the gospel they become a new creation created in Christ Jesus unto good works (Ephesians 2:10). Old things pass away and behold all things become new (2 Corinthians 5:17), and the Spirit of God now working in them begins change them into the same image of Christ, as their love grows towards righteousness and hatred towards iniquity.

This however does not mean we never sin again. Even the apostle Paul would lament "what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I" (Romans 7:15). The apostle John says, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:8-9) When the child of God sins, we never lose our salvation but can fall out of fellowship when we are not walking in the light (1 John 1:6-7). And "if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world" (1 John 2:1-2).

Nevertheless, in the rest of your comments, I sense that you seem to really place a high emphasize Sabbath keeping, and to observe Saturday and set it aside for to gather with the saints, to read the Scriptures and to worship God. I am not against this. If in your area it works for the local church to assemble on Saturday, that is great. But if it works for the local assembly to gather together on Sunday or Monday or Tuesday, that is great also. However, I think in your conclusions you are missing a couple of important points, so if you would allow me, let me bring them forth for you to ponder.

We must remember that the Sabbath was a sign given to the Jews by God. "Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore...Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever" (Exodus 31:13-17).

So it is not surprising to see Jesus, who was a Jew, in the land of Israel, going in to the synagogues for to teach, as observed in the 4 gospels, for this was the custom of the Jews. So, where else would He go?

Furthermore, after Pentecost the church was born we see several instances of the saints gathering on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7, 1 Cor. 16:2). And just because we see in these two instances that they gathered together on Sunday, I do not believe it makes it the rule either. As for the Greek phrase "mia sabbaton" it is always translated "first day of the week", and this is the proper translation. For example, "In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week (Gr: Mia sabbaton), came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre." (Matthew 28:1) Or here, "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week (Gr: Mia sabbaton), when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you." (John 20:19) There is no doubt that Sunday was the day that Jesus rose from the dead, on the "first day of the week" (Gr: mia sabbaton).

We must also remember that the book of Acts is a transitionary book from the Old Covenant to the New, and we see Judaeism overlapping with the church as the apostles begin their ministry of evangelizing the world beginning in Jerusalem. Not all Jews believed so they continued in their custom and this is why the apostle Paul, as he went about evangelizing, sought out the "synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ." (Acts 17:1-3) They were to evangelize to the Jew first and then the Gentiles, so it is nothing peculiar if you see the apostles in Jerusalem and the surrounding area going into the temple and the synagogues for to teach and preach Jesus death for sinners and the resurrection from the dead.
