God’s Law is Christ’s Law.

I come from a church that teaches that God’s Law is done away. It is not true, but the idea gives the church a great amount of control over the people. It doesn’t matter what they say, but rather what they do and what they have become is very much a church based on works. I know because I have a website and I have received questions from people for many years. It has been awhile, but the questions indicate that people were concerned about obeying church law, not so much scripture. Nothing they were worried about is in scripture at all, but they had been taught so strongly the need for obedience that they were worried over the simplest things. Often it was Sunday morning worship protocol. Now days they just don’t care anymore and the preaching has switched to Jesus loves everyone and he loves you no matter what you do. What nonsense.

They say they follow Christ’s Law as God’s Law is done away. I have asked several times what is Christ’s Law or what Laws are a part of it. The only answer I ever get is that Christ Law is the New Testament. Well Christ is God. We don’t worship two God’s, just one.

Isaiah 43:11 I, I am Yahweh; and beside me there is no savior.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Christ’s Law is God’s Law.

Paul taught the New Testament church to obey God’s Law, but those verses tend to get ignored. Here is one of about two dozen.

Romans 2:12-13 "For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified."

Who shall be justified? Paul did not ever use past tense with respect to God’s Law. Now go read verses 14-15.

Romans 2:14-15 "For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)"

Paul promoted God’s Law.

1 Timothy 1:8 "But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully".

Romans 2:14-15

Romans 2:14-15 "For when the Nations (Gentiles), which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another".

Because the above incorrectly translates ethnos as Gentiles, people have the mistaken idea that there are some non-Israelite people with God’s Law written in their hearts. This one should be easy to figure out since one doesn’t even have to go to Jeremiah 31 for the context. It is repeated in Hebrews.

Hebrews 8:8-10 "For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people".

This is the new covenant agreement. The quote even includes a physical example so that it would be more difficult for those who destroy the scripture by spiritualizing it. It was a real, physical people who were led out of Egypt and with whom God made the covenants, both old and new. That is specified that the covenant is made only with those of the the two Houses of Israel.

The new covenant includes the House of Israel and the House of Judah, writing God’s Laws in their hearts. Romans 2 talks about some people that the English text calls Gentiles who have the Law of God written in their hearts. Unless God then has violated His own agreement these people must then be Israelites. This is simple logic. The Law of God is only written in the hearts of Israelites. The Law of God is only given to Israel.

Psalms 147:19-20  He shows his word to Jacob; his statutes and his ordinances to Israel. He has not done this for just any nation. They don’t know his ordinances. Praise Yah!

Therefore these “Nations” (Gentiles) must be Israelites. Remember the Greek word in the text is Nation. The word Gentile was a translation error to protect existing church doctrine.

So then logic requires that we look to see who, for almost two thousand years, has most behaved like they have the Law of God internalized or written in their hearts. When we identify those people, we have found true physical Israel.

The Context and Meaning of Old Testament Quotes

The writers of the new testament quoted from the old testament often and expected the reader to understand the context and word meaning of the original quote. Romans 9:24-26 is just one example. If the source of those quotes is ignored, the context of the quote and the meaning intended is lost.

Romans 9:24-26 "Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Judeans only, but also of the Nations? As he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God."

If one reads that without looking at Hosea then it allows one to teach that the “Not my people” could be anyone. Paul told us to look at Hosea because he wanted us to know who are those Not a People. The Not my People were Israelites of the Northern ten tribes whom God was divorcing and sending away to become known as Nations (incorrectly Gentiles). However God made a promise to those Not a People.

Hosea 1:10-11 "Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head [Christ], and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel."

The fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Ephesians chapter two.

Israel

“Spiritual Israel”. The phrase is not found in scripture. A Spiritual Israel is never the recipient of promises or prophecy. God keeps His promises.

Daniel 2:44c "and the kingdom shall not be left to other people".

This is a part of why it is important to know who is really who in scripture and who is really who today.

John 10:16 "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."

This means that the other fold had to be physically descended from Jacob Israel. Hosea 1, Ephesians 2 and the parable of the Prodigal Son all verify this. This is why it is important to know about the two separate Houses of Israel. It is important to know how they became separated, how God viewed them and how they were prophesied to rejoin under one head, Christ, as they are today.

The idea of a Spiritual Israel was created by men who saw that those who are anti-Christ and claiming to be Israel were not fulfilling any prophecy for Israel. This was another instance of men trying to make sense of the Bible by changing the Bible. It is the world that is upside down, not the Kingdom of God. The method to understand the Bible is to change our understanding of the world. Those who hate Christ and spit when they hear His name are not God’s chosen. They do not hear His voice. They are not His sheep just like Christ said in John 5, 8 and 10. If you want to know who is Israel today, then look for the people who have followed and fulfilled prophecy for almost two thousand years.

Compromised Preachers

Many preachers have compromised their beliefs and may be nothing more than ministers of Baal. There are many pressures to being a preacher and most all make compromises. Over the years I have been amazed at how many times I have met preachers who have admitted that what they believe is not the same as what they preach. I realize that at least in some of those situations, the elders or leadership of the congregation may have known and approved.

The key seems to be a preacher who decides not to preach the Law of God or even a portion of God’s Law because preaching it will affect their job, reputation or the number of people who attend or listen to them. All of God’s Law is important and must be taught. Your preacher has likely had to make some compromises the longer he has been employed. When was the last time you heard a sermon that promoted God’s morals? When was the last time you heard a sermon on sin?

The last time for me was after a 40 minute sermon. I asked the preacher if he knew that the verse he used did not say in the Hebrew what he preached. He said yes, that he did know it. He lied. He deceived his flock. He was a lying shepherd.

Ezekiel 34:1-4 "And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord Yahweh unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them."

The Sin of Esau

I was listening to a preacher from the 70’s. He mentioned the sin of Esau.

Hebrews 12:16 "Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright."

We are told that Esau committed fornication. Jude gives us a definition for fornication. That is “going after strange flesh”.

Jude 1:7 "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

What did Esau do that the scripture calls fornication and going after strange flesh?

Genesis 26:34 "And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite".

We know that this was “a grief of mind unto Isaac and Rebekah”.

Esau married women who were of a forbidden lineage.

1 Kings 11:1 "But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites".

These were forbidden peoples for Israel to intermarry. There were several reasons. They were children of incest. They practiced unlawful sexual practices that affected their ability to have children of a pure lineage. For example, they would set out their women once a year and have them have sexual intercourse with any male. So their lineage was even more corrupt. Because of this they were no longer the same race and they also had many diseases.

Deuteronomy 7:1-4
1 "When Yahweh thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
2 And when Yahweh thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of Yahweh be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly."

Churches today will tell you that the only reason the above marriages were forbidden were as verse 4 of Deuteronomy 7 states,

"For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of Yahweh be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly."

However then, one must ask why did Yahweh not allow marriages with those who would be converted to the Hebrew religion?

As mentioned above, there was more to it than just faith. There was the purity of family lineage and promise. All of God’s Law concerning women and marriage is designed to protect the purity of the family lineage. The list of nations that were forbidden were all children of incest and that the sexual practices of those forbidden nations was an abomination to Yahweh God. They were all very mixed peoples. The promise God made was only to and for Israel only. If the people had mixed themselves with other peoples, then the promise would have died with the last of those of pure lineage.

One must consider that a people who came from incest would still look very much like one’s own people. However, because the children of incest allowed what we would call today free sex, their lineage was corrupted by disease and by foreigners who looked different. Ephraim participated in this sin.

Hosea 7:8 "Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned."

What is a cake not turned? Imagine that you are making pancakes and you forget to flip one. It will be black on one side and white on the other.

Hosea 7:10 "And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face."

Why? Because his face looks noticeably different.

Why is this bad?

Hosea 7:9 "Strangers have devoured his strength."

Ephraim gave his strength, his prodgeny to another people. God’s Law protects His people, true Israel. Going after strange flesh gives one’s strength to other peoples, to those of strange flesh.

This is what happened to Esau. He gave his stregnth to other people. The decendants of Esau are found among today’s Jews. They make up about nine percent of today’s Jews. Today’s Jews are not Israelites.

“Edom is in modern Jewry.”, Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, p. 41.

“Edom is the eternal enemy of Israel and Judah.”, Encyclopedia Judaica 1971, 6, column 379.

Genesis 36:1  "Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom."

Esau, who is Edom, is mentioned in scripture by name as one whom God hates. In fact the scripture calls it a perpetual enmity with Esau’s children, who are mixed children.

Exodus 17:16  "For he said, Because Yahweh hath sworn that Yahweh will have war with Amalek from generation to generation."

Why didn’t your preacher teach this? Because he wasn’t taught it. It hasn’t been taught for a long time. Race mixing is a death penalty offense, or as John wrote it “a sin unto death”. Why is race mixing wrong? Because it gives the strength of one’s heritage to strangers, to another people. The Kingdom will not be left to other people.

Daniel 2:44c "and the kingdom shall not be left to other people".

The churches have been in the forefront of this sin because of false doctrine. It is very important that we know who are truly God’s chosen Israel and who are God’s enemies.

It is the world that is upside down, not the Kingdom of God. The modern day Jews hate Christ, they are anti-Christ. The Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples are true physical Israel. It is these who have, for the most part, heard Christ’s voice and followed Christ for almost two thousand years.

God’s Law is Good

God’s Law, His morals, have always existed and still exist. Scriptural definition says God can not change and that includes the Word and Law. In fact to get rid of the Law of God, gets rid of Christ by scriptural definition. This is why the anti-Christ has been teaching that God’s Law is done away for the last hundred years or so.

One morning in Sunday school the teacher said, “There was no law before Moses”. This was my response.

Genesis 26:5 "Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."

They also like to say the Law is now done away since Christ. Paul disagreed. Notice the verb tense Paul used.

1 Timothy 1:8 "But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully".

Who Do You Worship?

The world teaches a gospel of failure, a god who lied and couldn’t manage to keep his promises. The world teaches that Christ couldn’t get his people to hear his voice as he said they did. The world teaches that Christ failed to redeem his people. They worship a god who needed an emergency plan B that is never mentioned in scripture.

Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord Yahweh will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

If you believe that God failed and had to change His plan to some other people, today called Gentiles, then maybe you have been taught another gospel. God did not fail. His people do hear his voice and follow him. We don’t always do a very good job of it, but we aren’t anti-Christ. Think about it.

The world is upside down, not the Kingdom of God.

God Does Not Change

God does not change. His morality does not change. I like to tell people that what was sin the day The Adam was placed in the garden is still sin today. What is sin today was sin that very same day. God can not change. God’s Laws are God’s Morals. To change what is right and wrong from one day to the next or even from one covenant to the next changes God into another God.

Some people say that with the change to the new covenant, God’s law was changed. Can you imagine someone who violated a law on Tuesday suffering eternal punishment for something that God made righteous on Wednesday? We are used to that sort of thing to a lesser degree today in man’s government. There are people currently serving jail terms for something that is now legal or was never illegal in another country. I am so thankful we have a consistent reliable God.

There are some who want to almost pit Christ against God. Some suggest that Christ came with a better plan in opposition to the Father’s plan. This ignores the scriptural concept that Christ is God. The Father and Son are one. They are the same in mind and spirit. Christ never once taught against his own law, what we know as God’s law. To do so would have made him a sinner. The old and new covenants are virtually the same with one difference. The New Covenant is the Old Covenant now written on the heart.

If you have been taught that God does things differently now then you have been taught that God changes.

Malachi 3:6 For I am Yahweh, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Is Your Preacher Really a Christian?

How to find out if your preacher at church is an enemy or just misled.

Ask him what he believes about Christ. Hopefully he will pass 1 John 4’s Christian test.

1 John 4:1-3  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

So your preacher and elders for that matter must confess that

-Christ is God
-Christ came in the flesh

Then you can ask him how we should treat anti-Christ’s or those who hate Christ.

2 Chronicles 19:2b Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate Yahweh? therefore is wrath upon thee from before Yahweh.
2 John 1:7, 9-11 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 

This is very serious. You might be surprised at how many are out there leading well known churches who would flunk these tests. If he doesn’t answer the first question correctly suspend him, have a hearing with the elders of the church and get ready to fire him.

If he doesn’t answer the second question correctly teach him and expect him to change his teaching. If he won’t, treat him as an unbeliever as above and fire him.
