What a blessing this webpage was to me. I cannot conceive of how long it took you to assemble it. It allowed made to look in depth at some of the life of Christ. And I hope you are heading for a blessed Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our glorious messiah Jesus.

You boys stop your quibbling and make peace before I take a stick to all of ya.

You are all correct, so stop arguing about this Sabbath verses Sunday thing. One or all of you might cause a weaker brother or sister to stumble in his or her faith. Furthermore, we have an enemy who wants to destroy us all, and right now you are giving him gallons of gasoline and plenty of bullets to use against us.

Why don't you do like me and attend a Sabbath service on Sabbath and a Sunday service on Sunday; then you got your bases covered. Sometimes, you can find me at a Jewish synagogue service on Friday evenings, always at a Seventh Day Adventist service Sabbath mornings, a Saturday night old time country gospel service, and then a Sunday service at my Baptist church or my friend's Pentecostal church. One can never get enough Yahweh, regardless of the day of the week.

Actually, I am very glad to read what y'all have to say because you are teaching me so much, and I'm loving all of it. Just be loving and gentle with each other, and keep quoting those letters to the early churches so I can continue to be edified and educated. All your quoting verses is helping me in my faith. Now I'm going to share to the two parts of two letters that influenced me to write this message.

2 Timothy 2
20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 24 The Lordís bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25 with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.

1 Corinthians 8

Take Care with Your Liberty

1 Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. 2 If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know; 3 but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.

4 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.

7 However not all men have this knowledge; but some, being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. 8 But food will not commend us to God; we are neither the worse if we do not eat, nor the better if we do eat. 9 But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, dining in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things sacrificed to idols? 11 For through your knowledge he who is weak is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. 12 And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble.

Do not link keeping the Sabbath with salvation, fore, salvation= it is a free gift of the grace of God, you cant work for it, you cannot earn it, one simply receives the gift of God, He paid our debt on the cross, and by faith in him we receive the gift of God, which is His grace. The gracious gift of eternal life, it can never be earned, nor added to by any works, for you don't work for this gift, because our work is not up to his standard, nor equal to his, therefore, we do not depend on our works for salvation seeing that we must be as holy as He is holy, since in our own work, we could never be, we depend on his work, the work of His righteousness, and his payment for our unrighteousness, which is His work on the cross, and to those whom will receive this gift, gave he the grace to become children of God. Therefore, we do not doubt his work, though we may doubt ours, therefore, his work is the work which saves us, and prepares the gift of his grace, which we receive by faith alone.

This is the gospel which we preach, the gospel of Jesus Christ, or Anointed Messiah, to those whom don't know the background must simply realize that God, has from the beginning of time, has been crafting a way for them to be able to know Him, and that even in their greatest sin-if we turn to him for freedom, and deliverance, if we wish to know him, and his way, by faith, can still receive his gift of love, grace, and salvation. They need salvation because sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life; and if any man believe upon him, he shall not die but have eternal life.

Ps. I must correct a statement I made previously, we do not keep works as a means of salvation, no amount of it will do, we have faith, and we work the works of love, one to another, forgiving one another, the works of love is fulfillment of all God's laws.
Have a great Sabbath, and thank you once again.

Well praise the Lord Nick, you are now beginning to present a more excellent way. Yet one thing is lacking. You have only mentioned half the gospel, for not only was Christ "delivered for our offences, [He] was raised again for our justification." (Romans 4:25) The Scriptures tell us, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9) Without the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ you have no gospel, it is another gospel that cannot save.

The apostle Paul clarified this in his first letter to the Corinthians, "Moreover, brethren, I DECLARE UNTO YOU THE GOSPEL which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; BY WHICH ALSO YE ARE SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, UNLESS YE HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures; And that HE WAS BURIED, and that HE ROSE AGAIN the third day according to the scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

THIS is "the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth" (Romans 1:16). The apostle Paul would say, "the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God" (1 Corinthians 1:18). But when you came in here it seems that all you could preach about is Sabbath keeping.

Now for sure "the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good" (Romans 7:12), but let us not forget that the law is a "ministration of death" (2 Corinthians 3:7), it is a "ministration of condemnation" (2 Corinthians 3:9) and that "the law worketh wrath" (Romans 4:15). The Law shows us that we are sinners under the just condemnation of a Holy God whose vengeance is against all ungodliness. The Law was to show us that there must be some other way to approach our thrice holy God, and there is, it is through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord, that He alone satisfied the just demands of the Law. He was the spotless Lamb, without sin, and therefor He alone could pay out debt to sin, dyeing on the cross, and rising again for our justification.

"Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:24-26)

Now we can toot our horn all we want how we should keep the law, how we ought to keep the Sabbath, whether you believe our rest should be on Saturday or Sunday, or even Monday, but lets not be hypocrites. We have never kept it, neither will we ever keep it perfectly until we are glorified with Christ.

Now I am all for preaching the Law to the lost that they might recognize their exceeding sinfulness and realize their desperate need for a Saviour because most people who are lost are self righteous, so they need a good dose of the Law to put them in their place, then they might be more ready to believe the gospel and receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

PS. And we can talk all we want about how we should love one another and forgive one another, but I would rather talk about God's great love for us and how He is ready to forgive all our sins, blotting out all our transgressions, casting them as far as the east is to the west, casting them behind into the deepest sea, all because Christ "loved me, and gave himself for me" (Galatians 2:20).

The 10 commandments are a very powerful portion of scripture -- and just as revelant today as they were when they were written. This is a wonderful list of basic principles to live by, which also come with many blessings. We recognize God and worship Him alone, not because it is a Biblical law but because He is God - the Alpha and Omega, the creator of all things -- including us. We don't avoid idolatry because it is a law or a rule, but because God is the one and only true God. We don't murder people because it is a law, but because it is immoral and against the heart of God. Even from a common sense standpoint, anything that would make it to a list of God's top 10 seems obvious that it would be something He would want us to pay attention to. When you research the sabbath, you will find that Nick is right -- It's the work of Constantine. Constantine claimed to be a Christian, and he brought relief from persecution to the Christians. The Christians of that day were probably so glad to have some relief from persecution, it is reasonable to think they may have made some concessions during that time. However, the best history searches I have found so far do reinforce the notion that Constantine never fully let go of the pagan gods of his past and he did set aside Sunday as the new day of worship to worship the god of the sun. Ever since the beginning of man, we have been tempted with counterfeit truths.

Truth is -- Jesus and his disciples honored the sabbath. Ex. 20-6 God shews mercy unto them that keep his commants. In John 14:15 Jesus himself said, "If you love me, keep my commandments." There are many myteries in the Bible, but following the 10 commandments seems really like a no-brainer. We don't follow the 10 commandments to get saved, but we follow the 10 commandments because we are saved. We love God's law and all of His scripture because we love Him, and we want to obey Him.

We don't avoid stealing or committing adultry - just because it is a law, but because these are things that go against the heart of God and bring us pain. Likewise, we honor the day God himself set aside, because whether we understand or it not, the sabbath is the day (the evening and morning - not the other way around) that God in His infinite wisdom told us to honor. God Himself -- the creator of the universe, the beginning and the end, the God of the impossible, with endless power -- role modeled the honoring of the sabbath, and He plainly told us to do the same. When we listen to God and follow His commandments -- there is blessing and safety -- the "righteous" are never forsaken.

I don't commit murder, and recently I was convicted that maybe I need to pay more attendtion to the other commandments as well. Most evangelical churches that offer a Saturday service do that so you can "fit God and worship" into your schedule -- not because that is what God wants us to do. I recently starting attending a messianic jewish congregation, not because I intend to convert to judaeism, but because they genuinely honor the sabbath. It's almost unbelievable how many blessings God has brought into my life in just the few weeks I have purposed to honor the sabbath -- not just in my everyday life but in my career as well. God has blessed me so much, it almost blows my mind.

Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my commandments." Out of all the many things we may question, again, that one seems about as clear as it gets.

Grace and peace -- Job knew a lot of things, and God himself challenged him. Even though Job stood fast and never cursed God, he agreed with God that he was speaking of things that even he didn't have the wisdom to speak authoritately about.

Do you labor six days and do all your work? If you do, you do well.

Do you rest the seventh day and keep it holy? If you do, you do well.

Most churches today do that also. They work six days also, they work Monday to Saturday and they rest the seventh and gather together with other of the saints, on Sunday.

"Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it." (Romans 14:4-6)

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ." (Colossians 2:16-17)

Sunday has been falsely commanded, by force, to be holy, by Constantine (Catholicism)see ["Rome's challenge" ]
{www.immaculateheart.com/maryonline}Dec2003,] to disobey the law of God's Sabbath, by making additional laws, changing God's laws, and adding to it, by instead to keep Sunday holy, as the official church holy day: Who's day will you keep holy? God's Holy Sabbath, or Constantine's venerable day of the Sun? Deu 12:32 I ask you then, who died for you?

Nick, have you not ever noticed that in the epistles, the primary place were we receive our New Testament doctrine, that we can find mentioned therein the keeping of all God's Decalogue except one, and that is of Sabbath keeping. Instead, we are told in regards to any Sabbath keeping, "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ." (Colossians 2:16) You fail to see that all of these Sabbaths were a shadow of things to come, and all pointed to Christ.

Now God created all things in six days and rested the seventh day, but His works were finished before the foundation of the world. He is not creating new universes today. That work was finished. Now Sabbath means rest and this is what God did after creating the universe.

Now Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) He says, "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." (Matthew 11:29) This is the rest you need to enter Nick. Since sin entered the world, God has begun a new work. Jesus said, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." (John 5:32) It is the work of redemption that Christ came to accomplish.

On the cross when Jesus became a sacrifice for the sins of the world, He said, "It is finished" (John 19:30). He had finished the work that His Father gave Him to do, bearing our sins on the cross. This is the Sabbath you need to enter into Nick. You need to enter into His rest. Quit trying to come to God your own way by your keeping of the law. You need to come to Him in a far more excellent way, that is through faith, believing the gospel, that Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again for the dead, and you too can enter into His marvellous rest. Trying to come up some other way, you will be found to be a thief and a robber, and these shall all be cast into the lake of fire.

The law contained "a shadow of good things to come" (Hebrews 10:1), and typified the one great Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ once for all, and "we which have believed do enter into rest" (Hebrews 4:3) "There remaineth therefore a rest (Gr. Sabbatismos) to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his" (Hebrews 4:9-10).

Of those who cease trying to come to God by their own works, Jesus said, "him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out" (John 6:37). When you quit trying to come to God by your works, then and then only will you find eternal rest for your soul. "This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent" (John 6:29).

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.
