10 Commandments and List of Sins

image

I meet people all the time who say they are born again, but have no idea what sin is.

So how can they repent and be saved, if they don’t know what is sin and what is not sin?

The most common sins I see in “believers” is fornication and adultery.

They write in asking for prayer against the problem spouse or girlfriend. I cannot pray against someone’s legitimate spouse when the prayer requester is committing adultery with the mate.

Because of this confusion, I am listing God’s laws and a list of sins, to inform people, who need to examine their conscience.

These 10 commandments are central to all God’s laws. These are moral laws which must be obeyed.

The Ten
Commandments

 
 

I am the LORD thy God

Thou shalt have no other gods

No graven images or likenesses

Not take the LORD’s name in vain

Remember the sabbath day

Honour thy father and thy mother

Thou shalt not kill  (murder)

Thou shalt not commit adultery

Thou shalt not steal

Thou shalt not bear false witness

Thou shalt not covet

Other gods, or idolatry, also refers to ANYTHING that one puts as more important than God. This includes job, family, friends, money, fame, hobbies, sports, pop idols, one’s own ego, etc.

Profanity is a sin.

The Sabbath Day is Saturday, although many have switched to Sunday, and there is some dispute over this.

Honoring parents is required, and talking back to them, mistreating them is a sin.

Killing is actually murder, or the taking of an innocent life. This is the Hebrew word actually used.  (We are allowed to kill for food, and defend ourselves.)  This also includes slander and gossip, which is meant to destroy the reputation and life of another person.

Stealing can include anything, no matter how small.. People steal things from work all the time. People steal credit from another for a job well done, or steal their reputation. Cheating on tests, or to get things or money is wrong.

A false witness is a liar.

Adultery also includes all sexual immorality, including fornication, any sex outside marriage, pornography, pedophilia, homosexuality, bestiality, etc.

Coveting is wanting that does not belong to you. This includes jealousy and envy. This includes property and other people’s boyfriends or girlfriends, or jobs, or spouses.

  1. We are human and bound to do some of these things. We can’t be perfect. The more perfect we try to be. The greater the sin we will have to commit to balance out our psyche.

    • Hello George, yes we are human and bound to do many of these sins in our natural state, which is why YESHUA promised the disciples that HE would send the Comforter, Which is why we MUST be obedient to the word and be baptized not only by full immersion in water but also be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and by seeking the face of YHVH through daily prayer and by reading the scriptures on a regular basis.
      It is the baptism of the Holy Spirit with all its gifts and fruits of the spirit that enables us to walk by faith in righteousness, we need to repent daily for sins we are not even aware of doing, we need to praise and worship our heavenly FATHER and give thanks.
      And as we draw closer to YHVH through YESHUA our MESSIAH, it is the Holy Spirit that gently leads us away form worldly things and we become a ”separate’ people, and in time we find that the sinful things we enjoyed doing like partying and many get drunk, [just examples] become things of the past, and we find that we look for truly born again friends who also love the LORD with all their hearts. OK so we loose a lot of old friends and many times even unsaved or religious family members but YHVH’S word says clearly; ‘ what dose it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul” and the LORD highlighted this very verse to me within the last week as HE spoke to me and the LORD mentioned Nelson Mandela..
      George trust in the word of YHVH and if you believe that YESHUA is the MESSIAH and if you have not been baptized with the Holy Spirit, find a Pastor who will pray with you for the baptism or ask the LORD HIMSELF to baptize you. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an act of obedience and is vital to the growth of every child of YHVH, without this baptism Christians remain without victory in their lives. Shalom

  2. Sin is the transgression of the law. 1st John 3:4.

    If you brake one you brake them all. See James 1:25, 2:8, 10-12.

    We all been given a choice in this life: Choose life or choose death. And by the way the devil owns the fence.

    • Which is why YESHUA gave us the Comforter in Act 2, The baptism of the Holy Spirit enables us to walk in righteousness and to grow from babies in YESHUA into mature sons and daughters of YHVH, As we allow the power of YHVH move in our lives through the Holy Spirit and in YESHUA’S name, become / are drawn closer to YHVH and our desire to sin becomes less and less as the fruits of the Holy Spirit begins to manifest in our lives but this also requires us to study the word of YHVH and to pray. The word of YHVH is food to our spirit and sincere prayer is an open line to YHVH.

  3. By the way it is interesting how the Sabbath is connected with creation and redemption.

    God worked 6 days making heaven and earth and then rested on the Sabbath.

    God died for us redeeming us on the 6th day of the week and rested in the tomb all Sabbath.

    Exodus 20 God commands us to Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day. Why? Because God worked 6 days and rested on the 7th wherefore he blessed and hallowed the day. Deuteronomy 5: Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day. Why? Because God redeemed you from Egypt paying a very high price for you.

    • He was not resting. He went into Hell to preach the kingdom Of God to those who died before the flood.

  4. And lastly if you take away the 4th commandment who is the law giver?

    1. I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

    3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

    5. Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

    6. Thou shalt not kill.

    7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

    8. Thou shalt not steal.

    9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

    10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour’s.

    Is there anything in these 9 commandments that tell us who the law giver is and his authority? In fact anybody could have wrote these 9 commandments, yes?

    4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God: [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates: For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    Only the 4th commandment tells us who the law giver is. God’s seal is only in this commandment. What is a seal? A seal is mark of authority. A seal needs three things to be legal and binding: 1. Name, 2. Title and 3. Territory. The seal of the United States would be Barack Obama, President of the United States. God’s seal is The Lord(name) made(Creator) heaven and earth(territory). It is right there in the 4th commandment.

    The ten commandments were written by the finger of God on two tablets of stone back and front. 4 on one and 6 on the other.

    Exd 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
    Deu 4:13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, [even] ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
    Deu 10:4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me.

  5. This is not a list of “you’d better do these or else..!”. Rather, it is a list of things a truly regenerated (born again) person will not even want to do. Of course even born-agains are still human, and we still sin … but we can repent and receive forgiveness. His plan is to develop His sinless nature in us so that we begin to live out the holiness that He implanted in our resurrected human spirit, when we gave our life over to Him.

    • hi cindy

      I wrote this because there are so many false conversions.

      Pastors do not teach about sin and repentance, and just tell people to come up and give their lives to Jesus.

      They are still living in sin when they do this, and assume they are ok, but then cannot understand why things are not going well for them.

  6. The bible says all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, I don’t understand why Christians don’t know what sin is? The only explanation could possibly be is because they weren’t taught or they haven’t read their bibles correctly so they can comprehend it all.

    • Jill, in reference to not being taught the 10 Commandments, I’ve long had a heart for Catholics–the majority of whom are taught from the *Catholic* bible, which contains a re-written version of the 10 Commandments. They removed #2 (idol worship) which reveals the idolatrous nature of the religion (Mary worship, saints, the “sacred heart”, Jesus on the cross/crucifix, etc). They then divided #10 into 2 parts (thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife / cover thy neighbor’s house). So it’s sadly true that within their own church, how can they be taught the truth about sin if even the 10 Commandments aren’t correct? 😦

    • Jill it is because most of the churches do not teach the complete and true word of YHVH, many only teach what makes their congregation feel comfortable and virtually none of them teach the law / TORAH which is the full extension of the 10 commandments, including keeping the 7 feasts ordained by YHVH for eternity. l only began to learn about ALL the feasts and how important they are in relation to YESHUA our MESSIAH, when the ADONIA led me and my Hubby out of the mainstream churches. The LORD told me to separate myself from the Whore of Babylon and her Harlot daughters and to come out of her,. My family have never been part of the Whore , the Catholic Church but 99% of your Protestant churches are the “”HARLOT daughters”

  7. Sin is unbelief that is what causes you to sin. Unbelief’s attributes are the things mentioned above. Unbelief comes out in the fleshy things of the mind, Body, and soul. The Pharisees thought they had no sin by keeping all the commandments. But the “Sermon on the Mount” showed them higher principals than even the Commandments. Jesus said just to hate someone you become a murderer. As noted above. The Pharisee’s greatest sin=doubt was not recognizing their day and message. As in Jesus day. He said to Search the Scriptures for in them it reveals who He Was. But they could not except that. That is the Un-pardonable sin.

    The Law and Commandments are Spiritual in the Nature of the heart. If people would really have the Spiritual Sabbath in them today. They will be full of the “Mighty Power of the Holy Ghost” which is the “Comforter and Rest” that Jesus said we must have. To recognize your day and its message.

    I have heard testimony of men who said they did not have the Holy Spirit in them. Then they are still living in doubt. Like the 3 years the disciples spent with walking with Jesus just to abandon Him in His passion.

    But after the Holy Spirit came into them with Fire- they would have died for him which they did. That “fire” will burn all sin and doubt out of you sooner or later it has to or it is not the true Holy Spirit.

    Every man or woman in any day – Must receive the Holy Spirit. It is a must for today as it was in Jesus day when the church first started.
    Special note – tongue’s do not have to be manifested to be full of the Holy Ghost. It is “A” evidence but so are the other 8 gifts of the ONE SPIRIT.

    God bless — ty

  8. Most Christians do not know the Ten Commandments nor do their children. http://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/09/06/teaching-children-the-ten-commandments/

  9. Just for info: The 7th commandment is not “hereg [ kill ],” but “retzakh
    [ murder ].” Killing is permitted in war and self defense. If the distinction is not met, then war and self defense would not be permitted. Chet [ sin ] means “missing the mark.”

  10. Hi, great subject, good reply Cindy. If you live in sin you cannot get into heaven. God is holy, the Holy Spirit cannot abide in a sinner. Probably only about 10% of Christians live the “Christian life” of following Jesus. Preachers do not preach sin for fear of upsetting their brethren which would hurt the ‘income’. Guess what, few preachers get into heaven as God holds them accountable for the lost (Ezek 3 & 33). If you do not hate sin then you are not saved! A true Christian hates sin. God hates sin. Luke warm Christians think sin is acceptable but in God’s eyes it is not. We need a repentant heart and a sorrowful mind of our sin lives before we will find the joy of the Lord.

  11. “eating the bread, or drinking the Lord’s cup unworthily: taking communion while living in sin”

    Being sinless is difficult, if you meant we have to be sinless to eat the bread…etc?

    What about a person who have a repentance heart, is that good enough for them to take it worthily?

    • reachuntoheaven

      There is a difference between living in sin and committing a sin.

      The righteous man falls 7 times a day, according to the bible.

      What God looks at is if we repent after we have fallen.

      He looks at our hearts, not our success rate.

      • Yes M, I totally agree, we know when we sin, so repent immediately before the sin gets bigger and repent with a true repentance. Re: reachuntoheaven: Before eating the bread always ask the Lord for forgiveness that is why we should say the Lord’s prayer daily for the bread is holy.

      • AMEN that is what the LORD showed me!

  12. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law.. That does not mean the ten commandments…it means the 600 plus laws that Moses wrote… The laws were pnishments for breaking the ten commandments and for sin…. These are the same laws of Moses that Islam and shariah law is based on…The word CURSE is spelled ALAH concerning these 600 plus laws…
    Interesting also Zech 5-1,3 speaks of a curse scroll (book) that goes over the entire earth….Cursed is spelled ALAH in this verse in Hebrew also..

    Isaiah 24-6 and chapter shows us the CURSED (SPELLED ALAH) earth….This curse causes men to become desolate… Verse 6..Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. This scroll of Zech 5-1,3 that causes desolation is the koran..
    The koran burns the truth of God out of men’s hearts and minds and they become desolate of God’s spirit…
    Koran/Islam is the abomination that makes men desolate..

    Guess who is right now taking away the daily sacrifice (Jesus and the Gospel) and enthroning the koran and Islam in USA..

  13. Amen 1313 –

    Also I hope this does not stump people. But having communion and eating a piece of hard moon bread and grape juice. Is not what its all about.

    Communion is “eating and drinking” of the – Word of God and Spirit. = the “Word is our communion today”. Jesus said to eat of His flesh = word and drink His Blood – the Spirit. Life is in the Blood. Its Spiritual

    As it says in Cor. That’s why many get sick, and many die. They do not believe the Word and live like the world and it is a reproach to Jesus Christ to say the least. ” They do not make “the Mark of God” Because they have never knew him. Matt. 7. They do miss the mark of God and then take a religion and end up taking the “mark of the worldly beast with in”. – “because of Unbelief” –

    By rejecting Gods truth will cause you to stray from truth and will one day give you a “reprobate” mind and you will believe in a delusion – You have to read the Bible yourself and study. Please do not expect your Pastor to give you Eternal life. God’s Holy Spirit will led you into it. If we read the Word with a sincere heart.

    John the divine – Mentions the World about 19 times if I remember correctly in 4 chapters or so. Look at the World – Then take a honest look at yourself. And see what you come up with.

    When you look at the World – Im not talking about the buildings, cars, and manmade things. Im Talking about People and their images, and idols, and self centered, etc. etc.
    Should prove to some Mature Christians who satan really is. John only talked about the World and Jesus Christ Kingdom. You live in one or the other.

    How many today will become unpopular and called a fanatic for Jesus Christ. As a man once said to a crowd. I am a fool for Jesus Christ – but – who’s fool are you. Look at the foolishness in this world.

    Bro. Ty

  14. But even religious people get sick and die. The bible says it was appointed once for man to die. Hebrews 9-27. For some people death comes after sickness, others through accident and the rest through murder (being murdered or even, God forbid self murder).

  15. The above comment was meant to be a reply to Tom York

  16. Dear Jill – Yes people have to die. Cause in Adam all die. But my Spirit man will never die. It will live on in Heaven for Eternal.

    The Point is that you can shorten you life span by disobedience to God and not doing His will. You cannot stay in sin= doubt and unbelief and read the Word and stay in your doubt and unbelief.
    That is contrary to God way of Blessings. The Christian believer has to take all their “infirmities” and lay them at the foot of the Cross. Jesus will take care of you. As long as you are really sincere about your walk with Christ.
    And He said He knows about all your infirmities and is a present help in the time of Trouble.

    Lord bless you Jill in Christ

    • Thanks Tom, well said because right now and for quite some time Ive been going through a really tough time myself health wise. God has been teaching me to put my trust in him because its the only way

      • Jill and all,

        Bless the Lord, O My Soul

        Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!

        Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

        The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.

        He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel.

        The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.

        He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

        As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

        As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.

        But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

        The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.

        Bless the Lord, O you his angels,you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!

        Bless the Lord, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!

        Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion.

        Bless the Lord, O my soul!

        Amen.

        • amen

          • Marianne,

            I thought you might appreciate Psalm 103 and in particular verses 17-22 in the English Standard Version.

            “…But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

            The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.

            Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!

            Bless the Lord, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!”

            Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion.

            Bless the Lord, O my soul!

            Amen and Amen.

  17. Wow that is a long list of sins in addition to the ten. I kind of like Gods revised short list of Love replacing them as they are all fulfilled in love. Anyone who believes that it is the christian’s duty to refine their old nature and to the degree that they are successful, their new nature ( new creation in Christ) will be advanced should read Charles Spurgeon’s sermom entitled “The Fainting Warrior”. It describes the relationship between the old and the new far better than I could. Google the Charles Spurgeon’s archives and type in the sermon title. God Bless, wp

    • wp

      If we walk in love, we will not find this list hard.

      the list actually came from the new testament.

      for example, if I loved you, why would I lie about you, commit blasphemy, or deceive you?

      I will try to find the book.

  18. Spurgeon’s sermons and this particular one, The Fainting Warrior”.

    http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/0235.htm

    • I read it over….I agree some and disagree some.

      maybe in the beginning of a convert’s life, the old man seems to dominate…and make one “wretched”

      but with spiritual growth with the help of the holy spirit, we should be more the new man than the old man.

      i do not feel wretched. I love god and obedience is a pleasure for the most part. occasionally, I can get upset about something that is not right, and feel tempted….but my conscience says no, so I don’t.

  19. With the discussion of sin one must ask, is the purpose of salvation to attain a level of goodness that heretofore without the enablement of the Holy Spirit was not possible or is it to separate the new from the old with the new becoming dominant in its time as it is destined to be and as this process unfolds, its nature and character will influence the old nature to also, through those influences, reflect some of those qualities. With Christ’s atonement the power of sin was broken. The power of sin is that it separates humanity from God. When someone is in Christ, Christ now stands between them and God. The new creation is hidden in Christ separating the old from the new (mediator). The nature of sin remains in the original (old man) as both Paul and John reference on numerous occasions, causing conflict, contrasting the two natures. At no point in this life do the two natures merge or become homogenized into one. They are divided by Christ which is the only way that sin and holiness can coexist. Many Christians become discouraged and begin to doubt their status with God because this expectation of the old becoming the new is not being evidenced.
    In Christ, wp

    • if the power of sin is broken, then sin will not be the observed behavior. God’s law will be in the heart, and not be a burden as it was before. it is the flesh that wants to sin, but now the holy spirit has entered and helps the person overcome the flesh.

  20. The power of sin is what separated humanity from God from Adam to Christ. Christ ‘s atonement broke the power of sin reinstating the connection to God through Christ. Because of Christ, sin has lost its power to prevent life. The nature of sin on the other hand is that which gravitates to and compels acts deeds and behaviors which are not glorifying to God. That component of sin continues to plague and distress Christians and will continue to do so for the duration of their earthly existence. The flesh is reckoned dead crucified with Christ but will in time reflect the nature and character of the new creation. I have known many Christians that have spent much of their years trying to repair and refurbish that which is reckoned dead and so intense was their focus on self that they never experienced spiritual growth instead becoming legalistic Pharisees.

  21. The good thing the innocence of Adam&Eve &of Jesus Christ is coming back on the earth! 2000 years ago when Jesus came the first time, He came to his own&His own received Him not! The Jews were meant to be the first saved born-again nation! The first nation to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit&not only the 120 in the upper-room on the day of Pentecost but because of their rejection this did not happen! Also the same sinless-innocence the Lord had! They were to have become the”nation of Eden”&then many from the nation of Isreal would have gone out&did the works that Jesus did during His ministry! This should have happened 2000 years ago but the torch of the spiritual had to pass into the hands of the gentiles&this innocence was only possible after a Christian dies&goes to heaven! Now when JC comes back&the remnant 1/3 surviving Jews become Christian, they will mourn over Him! Then there will come a time the whole nation of Isreal will receive the Holy spirit like on the day of Pentecost! Then this innocence! Then “thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven! In the Millenium it will be opened to others to come into this innocence around the world brought by the Jews! The ministry of innocence will be the main evangelism during the Millenium, since everyone will be born again, or born again spirit filled Christians at the beginning of the Millenium! However not all Christians will accept this “innocence” It is going to be a Christian version of Jesus 2000 years later coming to His own&His own receiving Him not! However just like the Jews have had 2000 years earlier! However just like in the last 2000 years the Jews have had the witness of Christianity! In the Millenium Christianity will have the witness of Innocence&God’s perfect will being done on earth like it has been earlier in heaven!

      very true. the jews missed their mark 2000 years ago, and now much of the church is missing it now.

      I look forward to seeing the holy spirit descend upon the jews and free them, after all their thousands o years of persecution and lacking salvation.

  22. Blessings to all on the site in the name of our Lord.
    Marianne what would your comments be on Deut. 13 in relation to the wicked and the sinner and Rom 3:19-23.
    Only His Grace!!

    • hester

      I am not sure what you want me to see in these passages.

      deut gives an example of how to respond to idol worship in one’s midst,

      rom 3 discusses that we are saved by faith, not the law, but also says
      1. by the law is the knowledge of sin. v 20
      2. Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law. v 30

      the law is a teacher. without it, there i no knowledge of sin. Even though we are saved by faith, we still need to be taught what sin is….so the law is the reference for this, and avoid sin

  23. Marianne
    It is exactly the seriousness of the law when it comes to sin that “shocked” me in Deut 13:6-9 and Rom 3:30. It is why you wrote out all the sins. It is very serious if we should lead another person to sin or causes him to sin. Sorry I didn’t express myself well, I really came to a full realisation of what sin involves.
    Thank you once again for your wonderful teachings and what is so wonderful you don’t get tempted by pride. I’m learning. Blessings

  24. Romans 13 verse 9 says

    ‘For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill,, thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’

    According to this verse then, sin is anything that is contrary to love, in our relationship with others.

    • Understand that the verse quoted above is an extract from a chapter that talks about our duty as Christians, to God. More generally, sin is anything that is contrary to love, in our relationship with God, and with our fellow man.

      In the question of the great commandment (Matt 22:34 – 40), Jesus said that the two great commandments were to love God with all our hearts, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. It was his conclusion in verse 40 (Matt 22:40 – ‘On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets’) that leads me to say that sin is anything contrary to love, both in our relationship with God and with others.

      • Also (to whom it may concern),

        Keeping God’s commandments is therefore, walking in love, and according to this extract from 1John 4:12 – 13,

        ‘…. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit’

        to show love is to walk under the influence of the Spirit of God, whose fruits, according to Galatians 5:22 – 23 are ‘… love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance …’

        1John 4:17 further establishes that ‘… as He is, so are we in this world’, because God Himself is love (1John 4:8,16)

        So many chapters of the epistles stress the topic of love. Some of them are Luke 6:27 – 36, Romans 12:9 – 10 and 13 – 21, 13:7 – 10, 14:13 – 23, 15:1 – 2, Colossians 3:12 – 14, 1Peter 2:13 – 20, 3:8 – 11.

        I guess that’s all I know 🙂

  25. The truth is that most churches today blatantly ignore the 4 th commandment will all sorts of inherited excuses in spite of Isa 66 and in spite of the fact the Roman church admits it was them who made the change from Yah’s Sabbath to sun day. They surely prohibited the Sabbath and festival days to be observed and sadly her daughters have followed her.

  26. Jer 16:19 explains it well. The Gentiles have inherited falsehoods from their ancestors…

  27. it is sad to see so many people trying to tell others how to live, all denominations have varying opinions on what the bible says to them, but the meat of the matter is Jesus declared it is done. forgiving all sins past present and future should we try and live righteous lives, the one law jesus gave was to love others period.

    • Rob

      The 10 commandments have always been guidelines, and do not trump the saving blood of Jesus. they are there for those who strive to please God, and want to know his will. And I agree, there should be no strife among believers.

  28. To Rob Robert,
    You wrote, QUOTE:
    “the one law jesus gave was to love others period.”

    With all due respect, you are wrong. But I don’t blame you for not knowing, and you have a lot of company in pulpits all over America. “The one law” you mention was the false teaching of Paul the Pharisee. Jesus gave us NOT “one law” but rather “The First and Greatest Commandment and the Second.” If you read the posts below, comparing the words of Jesus with the false teachings of Paul, you will know the truth.

  29. Yeshua gave all the teachings or ” law” to Moses at mount Sinai and when Moses asked Him who shall I tell Israel gave these? Yeshua said in the name of YHVH; Behold the hand behold the nail. Yeshua didnt just give one commandment, He gave them all.

  30. Hi To all,
    Though I haven’t participated here for quite a while, I thought I would “pop” in to see what was happening today, and I saw this page.

    I had been banned more or less for expressing my views regarding Yeshua’s “GRACE”, and thought that this page might be the avenue to present a different perspective for the topic.

    There had been an ongoing dispute here on this site, between myself, others, and certain individuals that believe that following the “dietary law” is still somehow necessary in being obedient to God the Father, and over the years of discussion, the simple quoting of scripture hadn’t been successful in altering that mindset whatsoever.
    This is simply because if someone has a preconceived bias or understanding as to what the Word has to say regarding any specific topic, what the Word is actually stating is sometimes difficult to accept.

    So perhaps the information below will offer some to reconsider their current beliefs regarding the “dietary law” or in the need to “follow Torah”. And as well, perhaps, it will offer new insight to persuade those that believe that Paul is somehow misunderstood by the western Church into understanding the weight of his commission and message.

    It’s long as posts go, but its length is necessary.

    So first, in keeping with the subject matter of this page….. “WHAT IS SIN?”

    Well let’s take a look at sins origin.
    In Genesis 2:7-9., we see that the Father created Adam and the Garden of Eden and placed Adam there with everything that He had planted that was good for food. As well within the Garden, God had also planted the “Tree of Life” and the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.”

    In Genesis 2:16,17. God the Father issued His “first” Commandment.
    Adam was told that he could eat freely without penalty of every Tree in the Garden, with just one exception… and that was to Not eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. God had expressed to Adam that if he did eat from that Tree, the penalty for that would be DEATH.

    From the King James, Genesis 2:16,17., reads as follows;
    “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

    (** Note: Prior to this Commandment being issued by God, it was impossible for man to sin. With no Commandment issued, man could not disobey God. Therefore sin itself could not manifest in man.** Though Paul was referring to the Mosaic Law in Romans 4:15., this principle is clearly expressed; “Because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.”
    Paul repeats this principle again within Romans 5:13.; “For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.”**)

    Though all that transpired between Genesis 2:17., through to Genesis 3:17., was significant, it was God Himself that issued the PENALTY OF DEATH.

    Death was the penalty for man’s disobedience to the Commandment, and that disobedience created “sin”, by man “missing the mark” of obedience.

    Genesis 3:17;
    “Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it”:….
    And in the remainder of Gods decree in Genesis 3:19.;
    “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken;
    For dust you are, and to dust you shall return.”

    From the above we can clearly see that “death” was the result of “sin”, and “sin” is disobeying Gods Commandment(s).
    Hence Paul’s comment in Romans 5:12.;
    “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”

    Let’s review some basic math below so we can better understand this and make some connections here. This will come in handy to refer to further on within this post.

    In the postulate, “Symmetric Property of Equality” it would state the following:
    If A = B, Then B = A.
    This postulate says that if we know that A is equivalent to B, then we can also state that B is equivalent to A.

    Within the “Transitive Property of Equality” it would state:
    If A = B, and B = C, then A = C.
    (A) Disobeying God.
    (B) Sin.
    (C) Death is the consequence.

    If we apply the postulate “Transitive Property of Equality” to the above, we can easily see the associative connections. A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    Okay, let’s continue…
    As many here are aware, there are a total of 613 Commandments within the Torah. I could list them all in Textual Order from Genesis 1:28. through Deuteronomy 31:19., but that would make the length of this post beyond ridiculous.
    So let’s just concentrate on the Mosaic Law, for it in itself is quite extensive.

    (** Note: Before continuing, I would like to point something out that though obvious, is sometimes overlooked. There is a progression in the amount of Commandments from God to man. There was only 1 given to Adam, but now man has the “knowledge of good and evil”, so a considerable number of commandments were given to Moses to relay to Israel. Though this was done by God for a specific reason, He obviously was making it increasingly more difficult for man to attain “righteousness” before Him on his own.

    Paul refers to this within Romans 5:20,21.; “Moreover the law entered, that the offence, (or transgression) might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might “grace reign” through “righteousness” unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”**)

    The Mosaic Law for the nation of Israel, begins in Exodus 12:2., (with the foreshadowing of Yeshua’s sacrifice and blood), and the commandment to observe the new moon of Nisan and Passover (12:2-ff), keeping the Sabbath by not collecting manna, (Exod. 16:23-ff), and then, the revelation at Sinai in chapter 20 and basically continues on throughout the remainder of the Book. It continues extensively throughout Leviticus, less so within Numbers, and extensively again within Deuteronomy. Both Leviticus and Deuteronomy also consist of warnings of the consequences of breaking these Commandments, which basically consist of Death.

    In Deuteronomy 30:19., Moses states;
    ”I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you “life and death”, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”

    Again within the “Transitive Property of Equality” with Moses setting before Israel the Commandments with “life and death” consequences….
    (A) Disobeying God by breaking His Commandments, the Mosaic Law.
    (B) Sin.
    (C) Death is the consequence.
    ….. Then we can easily see again the associative connections.
    A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    So Israel was commanded by God through Moses to fulfill “ALL” of the Law. Not just some of the Law, but “ALL” of the Law to attain Life rather than Death. This “All of the Law”, is recorded over 50 times throughout the Old Covenant text.

    This is confirmed by James in James 2:10,11.;
    “For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.”

    Therefore, for one to not transgress the Mosaic Law, one must keep the whole Law and not be guilty of breaking any of them whatsoever.

    This knowledge may now make it easier for some to understand the context of what Paul was expressing in 1 Corinthians 15:56.;
    “The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.”
    And what John was confirming in 1 John 3:4.;
    “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

    Again….
    (A) Disobeying God by breaking His Commandments, or the Law.
    (B) Sin.
    (C) Death is the consequence.
    Or A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    As well, before Yeshua, this Law was also the only way for man to attain “Righteousness” before a Holy God.

    In Deuteronomy 6:25., Moses states;
    “And it shall be our “RIGHTEOUSNESS”, if we observe to do “ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS” before the LORD our God, as He hath commanded us.”

    So we should all now understand and fully comprehend, that “sin” is the result of “breaking Gods Commandments and the Law” and that “death is the consequence of sin”.

    So now Messiah, our Lord Yeshua comes upon the earth as Man.
    Hebrews 4:15. says that Yeshua was “without sin”.;
    “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, “YET WITHOUT SIN.”

    “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is NO SIN.” 1 John 3:5.

    And Peter also confirms this, (though expressing it with different words) within 1 Peter 1:19.;
    “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb “WITHOUT BLEMISH AND WITHOUT SPOT:”

    Well, if we take into account what is clearly expressed above regarding “sin”, how as Man did Yeshua attain this designation of being “WITHOUT SIN” and “WITHOUT BLEMISH or SPOT”?

    In Galatians 4:4., Paul tells us;
    “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,”

    Why would God do that?
    What could possibly be accomplished by Yeshua being born and being “subjected to Commandments, being subjected to the Law”?
    What was the point behind Yeshua coming as a man, as the second and last Adam?

    How about this….

    (A) Obeying God by fulfilling His Commandments, (the Mosaic Law) that as man He was subjected to.
    (B) Being designated Righteous, without blemish or spot, and without sin.
    (C) Glory and Eternal Life is the reward.
    Or A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    1 Corinthians 15:22.;
    “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

    1 Corinthians 15:45,;
    “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”

    Yeshua Himself said in Matthew 5:17.;
    “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to “FULFILL”.”

    Yeshua is stating that He will do the “opposite of destroy” above. The Greek “καταλύω” transliterated as “katalyō” and translated as “destroy”. Katalyō is primarily defined as, “dissolve, disunite, destroy or demolish.

    The “opposite” of destroy, is the Greek “πληρόω” transliterated as “plēroō”and translated into the English “fulfill”, is primarily defined as, “to make full, to fill up, to fill to the full, or complete.”

    And if Yeshua did indeed “fulfill” the Law as He had stated, the results of that would be…
    (A) Obeying God by fulfilling His Commandments, (the Mosaic Law) that as man He was subjected to.
    (B) Being designated Righteous, without blemish or spot, and without sin.
    (C) Glory and Eternal Life is the reward.
    Or A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    Please understand this…. Wouldn’t Yeshua from Everlasting, born of the Father and of woman be the only man ever born that would be capable to ever be able to fulfill the Mosaic Law and attain the “designation of being Righteous, without Sin, and without Spot or Blemish?

    Paul states in quoting Psalm 14:3., and 53:3., within Romans 3:10.;
    “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”

    Yeshua however, not only fulfilled the Letter of the Law, but He also fulfilled the Spirit and the Heart of the Law during His earthly ministry. (Just think how dismayed the audience was that heard Him speak as He expounded on the Heart and Spirit of the Law in Matthew 5 through 7? Every man’s conscience within that audience would have seared with guilt when they heard Him say verses 5:27,28. And if we are completely honest as men, being followers and disciples of Yeshua today, we are probably just as guilty as they would have been, yet you don’t see us plucking our right eye’s out as suggested by the Lord in Matthew 5:29..)

    How come?

    Because Yeshua “fulfilled” the “righteous requirements” of the Mosaic Law ON OUR BEHALF!

    If you have accepted Yeshua as your Savior, you consider yourself to be Saved, (John 3:16,17.) and are forgiven of your sins, (Romans 4:7., Ephesians 4:32., Colossians 2:13., and 3:13., James 5:15., and 1 John 2:12.).

    Well again, WHERE DO SINS COME FROM?
    And what did Yeshua accomplish in His death for you?

    Ephesians 2:14-16.:
    “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity,” (or the law of commandments).

    This is also confirmed below in Philippians 3:9., because not being perfect as man, we cannot possibly fulfill the Heart and Spirit of the law like Yeshua could.
    “And be found IN HIM, “not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law”, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS OF GOD by faith:”

    Yeshua “fulfilled” the Mosaic Law, (Heart and Spirit) ON OUR BEHALF; therefore we partake in His accomplished Righteousness.

    Within the New Covenant texts, there are only 2 that are mentioned that have attained a level of “righteousness”. And that would be both “Zacharias and Elisabeth”, the parents of John the Baptist.
    Luke 1:6.;
    “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”

    However, you can bet your bottom dollar that they had both offered the Lord God sacrificial sin offerings during their lifetime.

    Not once is it recorded within Scripture that Yeshua ever had to offer a sin offering.

    Well… if He was born under and subjected to the Mosaic Law, then one could logically conclude that He “fulfilled” the Mosaic Law, and no sin offering was ever necessary.

    We are forgiven of sins and sins are the result of breaking Gods Commandments. If we abide in Him, we “partake” of His Righteousness.

    This can be clearly understood by Romans 5:19.;
    “For as by one man’s disobedience, (referring to Adam and him disobeying Gods Commandment), many were made sinners, so by the OBEDIENCE OF ONE shall many be made righteous, (referring to the opposite, Yeshua being obedient to the Commandments that He was subjected to).”

    Tell me, would you ever say to Yeshua,…
    “I think that I can attain Your righteousness myself thanks.”
    Not likely.

    But this is what Paul was concerned about within his epistle to the Galatians.

    In Galatians 4:4,5. Paul says;
    “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to “redeem” them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”

    The English “redeem” above is translated from the Greek “ἐξαγοράζω” transliterated as “exagorazō” and defined as “to redeem, by payment of a price to recover from the power of another, to ransom, buy off.”

    Remember Yeshua died for your sins to be forgiven, and He shed His blood for you. And again, “sin” is the result of disobeying Gods Commandments.

    Disobeying Gods Commandments, (the Mosaic Law), sin, the consequence of death, Yeshua’s Righteousness, Grace, Blood and Death, are all intimately interwoven.

    But for those that are attempting to attain “their own righteousness”, believing it is necessary to follow Torah, the Laws of Moses, or simply the dietary laws, they are in essence, dismissing what Yeshua has offered to them.

    Yeshua has already accomplished EVERYTHING and He offers that which He has attained freely as a gift, to those that follow Him as His disciple.

    In Ephesians 2:7-9., Paul states the following;
    “That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His “GRACE” in kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by “GRACE” you are saved through faith; and NOT THAT OF YOURSELVES: it is the “GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF WORKS”, lest any man should boast.”

    But Paul also states in Galatians 5:4.;
    “You have become ESTRANGED from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; YOU have FALLEN from GRACE.”

    Well what is “GRACE”?

    (First let me ask you this…. Do you honestly believe that you are perfect and capable of fulfilling All of Gods Commandments and All of the Mosaic Law, as well as Yeshua could, (especially without having the Levitical Priesthood or Temple at your disposal)? And please don’t think for one minute that our Sovereign God didn’t have His hand in the destruction of the Temple.

    Yeshua prophesied its destruction in both a spiritual and literal sense within Matthew 24:2., Luke 19:43,44., and Luke 21:6.!

    Yeshua dies and the Veil between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies is torn and then coincidently the Temple is destroyed 70 years later. (See Ephesians 2:14-16., and “the middle wall of separation” again, which represents the Veil between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.)

    Please… if the Mosaic Law was still necessary for “righteousness and obedience” to serve a Holy God, why is it gone?

    Did our Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient God lose one to satan? That is impossible and simply can’t happen!

    Could “GRACE” then, (as well as consisting of other Holy blessings), also consist of being PARDONED for not being able to fulfill the Law? To instead accept and rely on Yeshua’s accomplished Righteousness on your behalf, since you couldn’t possibly do it on your own

    Could that be why Paul says in Galatians 2:21.;
    “I do not frustrate, (set aside or disregard) the “GRACE OF GOD”: for if “righteousness come by the law, then Christ is DEAD IN VAIN.”

    And Peter, while speaking to Cornelius in Acts 10:43., says;
    “To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive “REMISSION” of sins.”

    The word translated into the English “remission” is derived from the Greek “ἄφεσις” and transliterated as “aphesis”. It is simply defined as meaning, “release from bondage or imprisonment, FORGIVENESS or PARDON, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), and remission of the penalty.”

    Sins are the result of breaking Gods Commandments or the Law, but “through His name, His GRACE, we receive “REMISSION of SINS”, NOT BY ATTEMPTING TO FULFILL THE LAW AGAIN OURSELVES!

    Do you see how this is all intimately interwoven? How God, (as He has done so many times throughout the past as expressed within Old Covenant Scripture) has ACCOMPLISHED FOR MAN, WHAT MAN COULD SIMPLY NOT ACCOMPLISH ON HIS OWN?

    ISN’T THIS WHAT SALVATION IS ALL ABOUT?

    GOD created a Law that could only be ACCOMPLISHED BY HIMSELF, so that “HE receives the HONOR and the GLORY”, rather than man attempting to attain it. It is all a part of the FREE GIFT OF GOD, and a demonstration of His love.

    Romans 8:3,4.;
    “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, GOD SENDING HIS OWN SON in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH: That the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, who walk not after the flesh, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT.”

    So for those that believe that any of the Commandments are necessary in attaining their own “righteousness” before God, then what Paul is expressing within Galatians 5:4., (You have become ESTRANGED ,(“ἀπό” or “apo”- separated), from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; YOU have FALLEN from GRACE.”), is that those people are dismissing and disreading what has been offered to them through Yeshua, and are instead, in attempting to establish their own “righteousness”, they then have “FALLEN, (ekpiptō or lost) GRACE”, and have in essence, chosen to do it on their own.

    Looking at the “Transitive Property of Equality” again regarding this, how could anyone disregard not only this precious GIFT that has been FREELY OFFERED, but in essence also DISREGARD HIS DEATH?

    (A) Yeshua offers the gift of Grace by which you are Saved. A component of Grace is a pardon in not being able to fulfill the Law of God perfectly.
    B) You choose to accept that gift and His death with gratitude, and partake of His accomplished Righteousness to be adopted as a son of God.
    (C) Abiding in Yeshua offers forgiveness of sin, (transgressing the Law) and allows for you to remain in Grace and have eternal life. You now walk in the Law of the Spirit, and are not under subjection of transgressing the law.
    The associative connections, A = B, and B = C, then A = C.

    Hence Paul saying in Romans 8:1,2.;
    “There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to them which ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, who walk not after the flesh, but AFTER THE SPIRIT. For the law of the SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS hath MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.”

    And also with Paul quoting David’s prophecy from Psalm 32:1., (Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered), within Romans 4:8.;
    “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.”

    Again, how could anyone deny this free gift and choose rather to attempt to do it all on their own?

    I used to sign off many of my posts here with;
    “Be Blessed in Yeshua our Everything”.
    In which I meant exactly that.

    If we abide in Him and Him alone we partake in what He has accomplished on our behalf. We partake of His Righteousness. We are complete in Him.

    Colossians 2:8-10.;
    “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For IN HIM DWELLS ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY; and YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM, who is the head of all principality and power.”

    None of us are “perfect” we all “sin”.

    “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:8.

    “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” 1 John 1:10.

    We all transgress the law.

    “If we confess, (not deny), our sins, he is faithful and just to FORGIVE us our sins, and to cleanse us from all UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.” 1 John 1:9.

    “Unrighteousness”, the Greek “ἀδικία” transliterated as “adikia” and defined as, “injustice, of a judge, unrighteousness of heart and life, a DEED VIOLATING LAW and justice, act of unrighteousness”.

    “But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
    1 John 1:7.

    It is through Yeshua’s Blood that we are “purified and cleansed” of our “transgressions of the law” and we instead, partake of His RIGHTEOUSNESS, the FREE GIFT THAT WE COULD NEVER EARN.

    Romans 5:20,21.;
    “Moreover the law entered, that the offence, (or transgression) might abound. But where sin abounded, GRACE did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, EVEN SO MIGHT “GRACE REIGN THROUGH RIGHTEOUSNESS” unto eternal life BY JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.”

    NOT BY, OR THROUGH US, IN FUTILY ATTEMPTING TO FULFILL THE LAW OURSELVES, BUT THROUGH AND BY YESHUA OUR SAVIOR AND REDEEMER SO THAT THE HONOR AND GLORY IS HIS AND HIS ALONE!

    All I have ever done within these debates regarding the law, is to Elevate Yeshua above the need for anything else, (other than of course our responsibilities as His disciples).

    Yeshua is above the Mosaic Law and the Prophets….
    “And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.”
    Luke 24:44.

    And

    “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 5:39.

    It is all about Yeshua and His GRACE within the New Covenant.
    It is NOT about Yeshua and the Law, and the Prophets!

    That is why Luke said, “Not knowing what he had said” regarding Peter at the end of the verse Luke 9:33.
    Peter being Peter, had spoken without thinking again, and had suggested that three (3) booths or tents be erected to Honor the Three.
    “Erect one for Yeshua, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
    Whereas Moses and Elijah testified of HIM!

    If any booth or tent were to be erected, there should only be ONE.

    That is why God the Father put a stop to that idea, by immediately appearing in a cloud, (while Peter was still speaking) and saying, “This is My beloved Son: hear him.” as Yeshua was now STANDING ALONE.
    Luke 9:35,36.

    By walking in the Spirit, (though still man and not perfect) we “Establish” the Law.

    Romans 3:31.;
    “Do we then make void, (deprive of force) the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we ESTABLISH, (or “stand” as implied within Romans 5:2., in Yeshua and His Grace and forgiveness) the law.”

    God will use the Law to judge the world, (see Romans 2:12., and 3:5 through 18.)

    Yeshua Himself said in Matthew 5:18.;
    “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

    God will simply use the Law to judge the world.

    And then in Romans 3:19-28., Paul says;
    “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and ALL THE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD. Therefore BY THE DEEDS OF THE LAW NO FLESH WILL BE JUSTIFIED IN HIS SIGHT, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD APART FROM THE LAW IS REVEALED, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, EVEN THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD, THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD, being JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS, WHOM GOD SET FORTH AS A PROPITIATION BY HIS BLOOD, THROUGH FAITH, to demonstrate HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, that He might be JUST and the JUSTIFIER of the one who has FAITH IN JESUS. Therefore we conclude that a man is JUSTIFIED BY FAITH APART FROM THE DEEDS OF THE LAW.”

    Therefore, the HONOR and GLORY falls upon GOD and YESHUA, for accomplishing for man, what he could not accomplish perfectly on his own. That is why it is a FREE GIFT.
    It is not mans through the Law.

    Amen.

    Hopefully the above is sufficient enough to cause for some to reconsider what they currently believe, for it is all expressed solely out of my concern for them, that none should be lost, that none should fall from Grace.

    Perhaps it will plant a seed of doubt and it is my prayer that the Spirit of the LORD does the rest.

    It is all about Yeshua now and His Pardon and Forgiveness rather than any restoration of Torah or the Mosaic Law. The Father moves forward not backward.

    Paul knows exactly what he is saying throughout all of his epistles;
    “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the POWER OF GOD unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:16,17.

    The western Church doesn’t misunderstand the message of Paul as an Apostle?
    If the majority believes and understands the above, then they understand the Gospel.

    I will “pop” by again in about a month, just to see what kind of ruckus this caused.

    Be Blessed in Yeshua our EVERYTHING.

  31. What are the chances? You Pop back the same day I do? I will give you something to mull over when you come back next month. I see you have not perfected your brevity.

    I will begin with a brief statement. The argument between law and grace as espoused by modern evangelicals vs. groups such as SDA, Hebrew roots, etc. is a worthless debate to have. Why? Because Law and grace are mutually dependent on one another. If there is no Law, there is no grace. To say that a man who is saved no longer needs the law, or is not measured by the law is a lie, because then he would no longer need grace. Both striving to live by the Law, and Lawlessness are “Living by the flesh”. To the contrary, we are Judged by the fruit of the Spirit. A concept which you fail to discuss (Ignore?). Why?

    Paul writes:
    18 But if you are LED BY THE SPIRIT, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy,[d] drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

    Peter writes:
    5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue,[e] and virtue with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 For if these qualities[f] are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The condition of all of this: Being Led by the Spirit. If you are acting by the flesh you are under the law, and judged by the law. Satan, the adversary fights from these two towers. Lawlessness, and Legalism. Both sides live by the flesh, neither is led by the Spirit. When you are led by the Spirit, the fruit you produce is “righteousness”. When you are led by the flesh, You produce no fruit.

    Peter writes that the “qualities” must be “increasing” in our life in order for us to be fruitful. Thus there is a lifetime of sanctification involved in this process. It is only when you are being led by the Spirit that this sanctification can occur. This is not the instant sanctification at our rebirth in Christ, but the process by which we learn to put to death the flesh, or crucify the flesh as Paul states above.

    It is also these qualities, when they are increasing, that we, are able to love one another as Christ Loved us (Remember the new commandment that Jesus gave the apostles?) That being the “Highest” quality as mentioned in Peter’s list above, (Agape Love).

    Many in the “Lawless” camp, will say that we no longer need repentance once we are saved. (Joseph Prince and Joel Osteen being the most notable in this camp.) Doctrinally, Joseph Prince is very sound except this one exclusion. But this little bit of leaven has leavened the whole lump. That is why, when I was here I told you that sound doctrine without sound attitude is dead faith. But it is clear, from the passage found in 2 Peter 1 above, that there is an ongoing process of our mind being changed to be like the mind of God. It is not good enough to love a brother who will return that love, but we must also love our enemy, Just as Christ Loved us sinners, and enemies of God.

    That being said, we will always fall short of Christ’s new commandment, as God’s Love has not been perfected in us, and won’t be so until we no longer have this mortal flesh.

    Repentance is an ongoing, and essential part of our Christian walk. This is Godly sorrow, and not worldly sorrow. The biggest difference between the two, One is a willfull turning on our part to be Christlike, while the other is the sorrow you will face when you stand before the Lord on Judgment day having been exposed, naked, blind, and not ready for his coming.

    As I wrote earlier, Satan fights from two towers, lawless and legalism. He does not care which way we fall as we walk the straight and narrow, so long as we fall back into living by the flesh whether through legalism and self righteousness, or lawlessness and the delusion that we are saved.

    9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. (At salvation) 10 Therefore, brothers,[g] be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will NEVER FALL. 11 For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1)

    7 Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. 8 Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s[b] seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:7-10)

    24 Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, 25 to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude’s doxology)

    I Guess I need to work on my brevity as well.
    God Bless.

    Really, this is my last comment….Good bye.

    • This video is for you almost forgot about it. Enjoy. Especially from the 3:30 mark.

    • On Godly sorrow: When was the last time you saw this sort of preaching in a building?

    • Oh Dru,

      Well, if as you believe, that you are going to be left behind after the gathering to guide the masses as a tribulation Saint…. would your testimony of Yeshua consist more of what I had written, …..
      “That Yeshua is our Everything”, or your simple need to disagree?

      Above I had said that the Honor and Glory is Gods and that everything has been accomplished by Yeshua on our behalf, and all that we have to do is abide in Him, accept His finished Gift, and walk as He would have us walk, as best as we can as an individual and His disciple.
      He is the One that will judge our hearts.

      We can’t be perfect as He was perfect.
      If we could then there was no need for His sacrifice for us.

      However, I guess that you don’t agree with that?

      ???

      • Actually Dru, I apologize. I’m sorry for my response above.
        You have the right to comment here and say whatever is on your mind like everybody else.

        I just felt compelled to make that post.

        However my response unfortunately just further proves my point above.
        We can’t be perfect as He was and is.
        And I so desperately need His Gift of Grace.

        Be Blessed in Yeshua our EVERYTHING.

        • Apparently, perhaps it is a different episode of “I love Lucy”. You need not apologize to me. My comment below was written before your apology was read. Forgive me if I misspoke and saw no change in your attitude. As I said, “I am not perfect” either.

          • We’re all imperfect Dru, and that is the premise of my post above.

            How as man, (being as imperfect as we are), can we possibly fulfill all of the Mosaic Law to the extent that that it could satisfy a Holy God?

            (And I don’t believe that it was ever Gods full intention for man to attain righteousness before Him through the Law in the first place.)

            The Law only serves to demonstrate our ineptness, our complete hopelessness before Him as man.

            God knows that.

            That is why, (as explained in my above post) Yeshua fulfilled it on our behalf, and offered that finished work as a free gift, as Grace.
            He was the only man that ever walked the face of this earth that ever could have fulfilled it.

            Salvation is the forgiveness of sins by the death and shed blood of our Holy Savior Messiah, not by anything an imperfect man can accomplish. He performed that act for us, on our behalf.

            And (as explained above), “sin” is the result of Disobeying the Commandments of God.

            Well if we are so imperfect, then we can’t fulfill the Law on our own, (especially without the Levitical Priesthood or the Temple).

            So if God is the only One that can Save us through Yeshua’s death and shed blood, then He is also the only One that can Save us from the Disobeying of His Commandments.

            That way He receives the Honor and the Glory, (rightfully so) rather than man.

            The act of Repentance or Teshuvah, (as we walk as His disciples) are most definitely required of us all, but those that are “in” Him, will not be judged by the Law. However, those that attempt to be justified by the Law, (rather than relying on Yeshua) will be.

            The point of my post above was that Paul’s Gospel is the revelation of the New Covenant, (not the restoration of the Torah).
            The Torah testifies of Yeshua.
            The Holy Spirit testifies of Yeshua, Not the Law. (John 15:26., & 16:14.)
            It is all about Yeshua!

            And as well, it is born out of my concern for others, (like Shofar below for example).

            Any way’s …. Your apology is accepted.
            Be Blessed in Yeshua our Everything.

            • And seriously, (and this is expressed to all and not just Dru), if we could possibly attain “righteousness” through the Law before a Holy God….
              Then what was the point of Yeshua’s horrible death in the first place?

              Wouldn’t that have been unnecessary?

              Be Blessed in Yeshua

      • I agree, that Jesus is our everything. The problem is, You have never been to the point of being nothing in the face of that everything. Psalm 51.

        For you, As Ravenhill has said: You want to be “raptured from responsibility”. But I am not here to debate you on this. If you cannot bring yourself to repent in sackcloth and ashes as David did, then what is the point of arguing about the rapture. It will never lead to growth and maturity in Christ Jesus. To the point where “GOD’S Love is perfected in us”. (1 John 4:17)

        If you have repented in Godly sorrow only once in your life, you are not being perfected. I did not say I am perfect though, I said His love can be perfected in us. But you would not know that because of your “understanding” that you need not repent.

        As I expected, nothing has changed here. Kind of like when Crocodile Dundee came to New York and turned the TV on and on was a rerun of “I love Lucy”. You will have to look that one up as I cannot explain it very well.

        As for me “disagreeing” with you, What am I supposed to do? Allow your fallacy continue by speaking smooth words, or tell you the Truth, and perhaps save your soul from a tooth gnashing experience? I am not here to build up people’s ego and self esteem, but rather to knock it down. That is what you never could understand about what I was called to do. You called it a “divisive spirit”, But then again that is what they said about Jesus as well.

        My Goal in all of this is to bring people to the foot of the cross on their knees as nothing in the face of everything. Always has been.

        Watch the second video I posted. I wept many times as my message was rejected here, and about my inability to communicate that message in a sophisticated way enough to be received. I now understand why this was so. Because this kind of anguish comes only from a heart convicted of sin, not from the understanding of man. (Romans 8:26-27) There are a lot of people here who have a whole lot of faith in their own understanding, and little “knowledge” of the “God of the Word”.

        Agape

      • I think being here for the tribulation is a matter of perspective, not theology or doctrine.

        some believe in pretrib rapture,based on some scriptures…..and some believe in post trib…

        and then again, it depends on one’s definition of tribulation….what is it?

        some believe in all seals, trumpets and vials are the tribulation

        others believe only the seals are the tribulation…..

        and the rest is wrath of god.

        so a lot to think about

        • Hi Marianne,
          Since you happened to bring it up…. Here is something to consider…..

          Matthew 24:36.
          “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
          And…
          Mark 13:32.
          “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

          Yet then we have….
          Mathew 8:29.
          “And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us “before” the time?”

          The demons above stated “before” the time? Logically then, that would mean that they “know of a time” when they will be tormented.
          (This would be when Yeshua returns to have the battle and establish the Millennial Kingdom)
          And clearly Yeshua’s first coming was “before that specific or allotted time”.

          So Yeshua must be speaking then of a time (in Matthew 24:36. and Mark 13:32) when He will come back, (which no one knows but the Father).

          This would also mean then, that this can’t be the same specific or allotted time that the demons are referring to.
          Because this is a time, day and hour that, “no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, (nor the demons), but only the Father.”

          The only logical conclusion that can be made then, is that this “no one knows” time has to be referring to a time that is allocated “before” that time that He comes to establish His Kingdom and “before” the time that the demons were referring to.

          Do you follow the above?
          The demons “know of a time” that they’re going to be “tortured and tormented” which will be at the end before Yeshua establishes His Millennial Reign, (Revelation 12:12., “Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”)

          So these “DAYS AND HOURS THAT NO ONE KNOWS TIME” HAVE TO BE REFERRING TO THE RAPTURE.

          Furthermore, since the Father is keeping this “time” SECRET, it isn’t necessarily going to be revealed and made blatantly obvious as to when it will occur within the Book of Revelation.

          Be Blessed in Yeshua our Everything.

          P.S.
          I thank you for allowing me to post what I felt needed to be said in this day and age.
          However, if people disregard what Paul himself has to say, then is it any wonder that my confirmation of that message is also disregarded?

          I personally don’t believe that the “apostasy” of 2 Thessalonians 2:3., consists of one specific form, but that it instead takes on a multitude of shapes, and consists of many different aspects that turn the Faith and Reliance of Yeshua towards something else.

          I just believe that the movement to restore Torah and the need to follow and be subjected to the Mosaic Law is just one of them.

          Time to go again.
          To all Take Care.
          And again,
          Be Blessed in Yeshua our Everything.

          • hi gregg

            I think the “times” referred to are general times, which would only be recognized as the times approached.

            the demons knew that their time of torment would be a future time after jesus time here….they knew it was not time to be tormented yet…that was way in the future ….

            I think the time of grace and the time of law is also something that divides and confuses people.

            again it depends on people’s definitions.

            one person can be rigid and demand that every jot and tittle of the law be obeyed.

            another person can be more relaxed and obey as the holy spirit leads then to do….for example, a person under grace would still avoid adultery….

            it is sure that only jesus was perfect, but he also said to be perfect as his heavenly father was perfect….this was quite an impossible thing to do….but he was indicating, in my opinion, that we should always strive for holiness and perfection, even though we know we will never make it perfectly.

            we must always strive for what is best and holy, to please god….

            our strivings do not determine our salvation, but they are the burning desire of every spirit filled person…..to love and please the father

          • You know the phrase nobody knows the day and the hour is an old Hebrew idiom for Shavuot or Trumpets, Yah’s first yearly fall feast. It falls on the new moon of the seventh month thus nobody knows the day or hour.
            Shabbat shalom

  32. Yeshua followed Torah the correct way, same as His disciples kept on doing. The “New Covenant” is Torah were it belongs; in the heart and mind of Yah’s people, Israel and Judah.
    This is a good video that talks about this subject by bringing the background.

  33. Very well said, law and grace are mutually dependent on one another. There has never been one without the other.
    And yes, we work our salvation as we grow closer to Yah repenting daily, that is why it is a walk.

  34. 117. if you’re easily corrupted(low on faith) you should not associate with them. love your enemies but dont recieve them in your home or don’t walk in their ways. for this book should never leave your mouth. 36. this is jewish laws the lord said ” Sabbath was made for man not man was for Sabbath”. so we can do this. 25. we defile all our members through sexual immortality yet we defile our hearts through our sins outside the body because out of the heart breeds unclean things. set our minds on things of the spirit and keep the lord in mind in all we do is what we are saying , if you set your mind on the flesh then we are imperfect and do what our flesh desires.

  35. The Ten Commandments is the OLD LAW. When God gave them to Moses, he was telling the people that they are not capable of keeping these commandments because these are principalities that were here BILLIONS of years before God even created man. When Adam fell it became man’s NATURE to want to do these things. Now the reason that most of us do not break these commandments are just simply because of good parenting and fear of the law. But if those things did not exist we would break these commandments as often as we needed to. Our flesh or nature is NOT EVEN CAPABLE of keeping these commandments. When our brother Jesus came to the earth and died for us, The Father then created a COVENANT in which we were saved by GRACE and NOT by LAW. A law is something that you have to abide by and you can’t break it. And when you do break it, then there is a punishment to follow and you have to atone for it. This is evident throughout the old testament. When Jesus died on the cross, He ATONED FOR ALL MANKIND and so if the law is broken, there is NOT A PUNISHMENT to follow because it’s already ATONED for. The Father has stopped calling us sinners because our sins have already been taken care of. We all FALL SHORT (which is a present tense), but we have NOT SINNED in His eyes. We are ALL already forgiven and WE ARE STILL in God’s graces. We need to stop calling sinners “sinners” because they are not. The Father simply refers to them as THE LOST. And we were once lost but now we’re found. I love you my brothers and sisters and I pray that you will love the Lord through YOUR PERSONAL relationship with him.

    • A person is saved by faith in the Jewish Messiah. Yah’s Torah that Yeshua handed Moses forms the Constitution for His children. It is not meant for everybody anymore than the US Constitution is not intended for people living in other countries. Grace and salvation are NOT synonyms despite popular belief. Yah has been bestowing His grace or, favor on mankind since Adam and Eve but that does not necessarily mean salvation even though that was the case with Noah and later Israel after the compromising calf incident when Moses interfered in its behalf. Yah’s grace has been bestowed time and again from the start but He has decried the disobedience of His set apart people Israel, and you can rest assured He feels the same about Gentiles disdaining His holly Torah.

  36. My beautiful, loving (now married + with children) adult-daughter took me, her loving, devoted mother, to Court, telling the Judge she no longer wanted me in her life or around my grandson or her new baby after I cared for them for years. There wasn’t an incident or an argument. My daughter is married to a Jezebel Spirit who has destroyed many, just like my mother has.

    They are ungodly. I do pray for them.

    The Judge granted her wish without any proof of anything. He just took her word for it. My daughter’s husband has the Jezebel Spirit and maybe she is Ahab Spirit. Everything changed once they married. My mother also stirred the pot and wouldn’t help me get my daughter back in my life. She enjoys seeing us separated and estranged. We were so close and loving.

    I was not abusive but allowed my daughter, at times, growing up, to be around my Jezebel mother, her grandmother, who is wicked and is a closet Atheist.. I am ashamed I did that and have repented. My mother didn’t abuse my daughter but she turned her away from me and from God. My mother inspired pity so I kept feeling sorry for her and kept bringing my daughter back to visit her grandmother when she was a child so that she could have a grandma. I made a mistake and have since repented.

    Now my daughter has a relationship with her Jezebel father who left me and her when she was a baby, with no support, and who had abused me. Now, she is with him and my with my Jezebel mother and is also married to a Jezebel husband who are all ungodly and who have destroyed lives.

    But my daughter can’t see that destructive evil side of my mother because my mother hides it so very well from her and a few others. But I know who she really is, as she raised me and she is evil, wicked and ungodly.

    Can anyone please help me? I want my adult-daughter and two precious grandchildren back in my life so that they live God’s way, not the Devils way. She has been programmed and mind-controlled by my mother and her husband and by her father as well. What can I do? Please help. J.A.R.

    • Joy-Ann,

      I suggest applying the Light of Heaven to break the spiritual darkness, oppressing your daughter.

      https://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/armor-of-light-in-days-of-darkness/

      There are many demonic spirits at work because they work in gangs or groups. This is not my opinion but based on the extensive deliverance ministry of Frank and Ida Hammond, Derek Prince, Win Worley and my limited personal experience.

      I think and believe that our time is very short, expecting demonic oppression to strengthen. Why? Because they have “strongholds” and don’t want to give up without a fight. They have enjoyed their ruled for thousands of years (since the flood) and know what’s in store.

      I suggest a book, “Secrets of A Prayer Warrior” and any books by those listed above.

      Blessings
      Psalm 37

      • Thank you DJ for your thoughtful, helpful reply. It is very much appreciated. I will surely look into the Link you provided and the books as well. Blessings, Joy-Ann

    • joy ann

      It seems like everyone in your family is either a jezebel or an ahab.

      since everything is back stabbing, behind your back, there is little control over their behavior.

      you need a support system. find some friends who can go through this with you….and pray with you.

      At this time, there is not much you can do directly to change them, especially the husband.

      as a victim of jezebels, however, you can start standing up to your mother and father, and daughter, and demand respect. you can tell them what they are,,, demon influenced , godless people who are going to hell….sounds harsh but it is the truth.

      your obligation is to witness to them to let them know they are in sin, tell them you are praying for their salvation, and then leave it to God to handle their evil ways.

      as nasty as they are, I am sure there is no one else praying for them.

      since you are grandmother to the children, legally, there is not much you can do to see them. if you were the parent, you would have more rights to demand…you can consult a lawyer however….it sounds like you went to court without representation…..so you were bound to lose.

      it will take a disaster to bring the jezebels around….maybe……and they ARE responsible for their own behavior before God.

      you need healing from being victimized…..focus also on yourself….

      just remember, you can only do so much….the rest is up to God…..too much damage has occurred, and it will take much time for a correction to occur as well.

      I am sending you some prayers against witchcraft and for deliverance. also some prayers you can modify for your situation. print them out and say each day, as long as necessary. I will be in agreement with you.

      • Thank you Marianne for your prayers.

        I did go into Court (shocked we’d ever end up there as we were so close until her husband entered the picture) but the attorneys wanted to rip her apart and I didn’t want that so I went in unrepresented, knowing I didn’t stand a chance, either way.

        My daughter is an adult and no Court would ever force her to keep me in her life — I knew that. I believe she has become ‘one of them’ and feel concerned she has turned away from God and will not be with Him upon her death.

        As far as Court, I wanted to have a record so my grandson would know I didn’t abandon him, which is what they told him. I wanted him to know I did fight for him, and that I did what I could, should he come looking for me when he is an adult. It took enormous courage for me to go to Court knowing I’d be humiliated and emotionally abused.

        I know he is suffering my loss as we were very close. The last time I saw him he held onto me sensing I wouldn’t be back — it was awful. My son-in-law is evil and my daughter became ‘one of them.’ She changed almost overnight. I grieve their loss every day, knowing I’ll never see them again.

        By the way, not all of my family members are Jezebel or Ahab — I come from a very large family. The Godly ones know what happened and do support me as best they can. I also have faith in the Lord.

        Again, thank you for your kind words and prayers. Blessings, Joy-Ann

        • joy ann

          it is always the children who get hurt the worst in all this, isn’t it?

        • Joy-Ann,

          A little more background on the spiritual dynamic.

          Unforgiveness (root of bitterness, “Wormwood”) goes hand-in-hand with Jezebel.

          As I wrote above and you can read in Frank and Ida Hammond’s book, “Pigs in the Parlor” and Derek Prince’s book “Thou Shall Expel Demons” – demonic spirits operate in gangs.

          The spirit of bitterness (Wormwood) plays in the same sandbox with the spirit of Jezebel (rebellion, seduction/manipulation, control).

          Does your mother have a deep root of bitterness?

          Could your mother plant seeds of bitterness in others?

          You are blessed to have resisted the spirit of bitterness (aka, Wormwood).

          This passage apply to all Believers –

          “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled…” (Hebrews 12:14-15, ESV).

          Look at the above passage carefully and maybe study it out a little, beginning with reading it in a couple translations:

          https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews%2012%3A14-15&version=CJB;EXB;NKJV

          Consider this passage, which truly is the bottom-line:

          “For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses” (Matthew 6:14-15, Amplified Bible translation).

          A spirit of bitterness (aka, Wormwood) may test you too. Be on guard.

          God bless you in your fervent prayers for your beloved daughter and grandchildren. Pray and keep pursuing love as this link below explains:

          https://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=covers+a+multitude+of+sins&qs_version=CJB%3BEXB%3BNKJV

          Blessings
          Psalm 20

  37. Thank you for your prayers and helpful reply and Links. I will read further on ‘Wormwood.’

    YES… exactly, my mother did plant the seeds of bitterness, as well as defiance and rebellion in my daughter, undermining my authority over my daughter when she was growing up. As I mentioned I didn’t have the heart to keep my daughter away from my mother who would inspire pity.

    Biggest mistake of my life. I was more concerned with her feelings than my emotional safety and relationship with my daughter. My mother didn’t verbally abuse my daughter, but she slowly turned her away from me and drove a wedge between us — typical Jezebel, which runs in my large family.

    Lesson learned … ‘Thank you Lord for this lesson.’ At least I know where I went wrong, My daughter was a blessing and gift from Him and I threw that away by not listening to Him.

    I pray to the Lord for forgiveness because as a result of not listening to the Word of God, my God-given intuition, allowing my mother to be in our lives when I should have severed ties BEFORE my daughter was born, my daughter is now a ‘motherless mother’, and my grandson misses me terribly and is without a grandmother. Many suffered, except of course for my mother, whom I no longer speak to.

    My mother is extremely cunning and clever but my daughter doesn’t see that side of her (Jekyll/Hyde). Also, I hadn’t mentioned this but I’m sure it’s probably not going to be a shocker — my mother is a ‘closet Atheist.’

    There were no pictures of Jesus or the Cross, in our home. We were never allowed to say Grace at the dinner table, even at special occasions, including Christmas Day Dinner. She never set foot in the local church which my siblings and I attended for decades throughout our childhood and on, from the time we were only 6-years old. We walked the mile to the Church together without her, even in bad weather. She didn’t even attend any of our special religious events, the ones ALL the parents attended.

    All I can do now is forgive my mother and pray for my daughter and grandson. I am not bitter but the grieving is intense and painful. Thank you for your support during this difficult time in my life. Blessings, J.A.R.

  38. 36. Eating the Bread, or Drinking The Lord’s Cup Unworthily: Taking communion while living in sin

    Actually, this is untrue…partaking of the elements of Communion unworthily is to consume them without realizing the meaning of them, and not being in belief that the Bread is the Body of Yeshua, and the Wine is the Blood of Yeshua.

    Humans are in a constant state of sin, often unknowingly, from lack of a good teacher and a lot of bad habits. One can pray for forgiveness prior to Communion…I do, but only so that I will best be able to receive the blessings of Communion, and even then, I do not receive the forgiveness and concomitant blessings in my strength or righteousness, but Yeshua’s.

    • Questor

      it means willful sin….for example, if you are living in fornication, adultery or have committed murder, you have no business receiving communion….it is not referring to small slip ups that you repent of.

  39. The fourth commandment to keep Yah’s set apart Sabbath was changed by the Roman dictatorship in favor of Cesar’s declared set apart day, the “day of the lord” (Cesar’s, the cristus or anointed one of Rome who set sun day as his day set aside day to worship Cesar).

  40. The Roman dictatorship changed Yahveh’s eternal Sabath for their own day of the sun ( Invictus), which was Cesar’s own “day of the lord” ( as in lord Cesar). The forefathers of the Roman church capitulated to the change and by the start of the fourth century the Roman dictators made it law. A Roman law that is followed by most of the Christian world today.

  41. Being unsure if anyone else included this sin on this page, I would like to mention that narcissism or an excessive interest in oneself or one’s own appearance is a form of self worship and is a sin.
    One possible way to identify this sin is a person’s preoccupation with oneself such as an addiction to taking selfies. Don’t get me wrong, its not sinful to take selfies, however an addiction to the point a person is spending an unreasonable amount of time taking selfies, when he or she could be doing something fruitful, does ring alarm bells for me.

  42. Vijay — I agree with everything you said and I’d like to add the following;

    NPD, or Narcissistic Personality Disorder/Narcissism isn’t a choice — it’s a disorder where the brain’s ’empathy/emotion center’ is either underdeveloped or damaged or malfunctioning, and some even believe this tiny part of the brain could actually be missing…. depends upon the expert/theory we decide to believe.

    In other words, they can’t change. It’s not the choice we may think it is.

    If that part of the brain doesn’t function properly, as it does in a normal person with empathy, then they really can’t be anything but narcissistic and display the behaviors connected to this disorder… again, it’s not a choice like drug-abuse, alcoholism or any other self-destructive addiction, or like living an unhealthy lifestyle or Godlessness. It’s an emotional disorder.

  43. It goes back to the ‘nature – nurture’ issue, which can be argued till the cows come home. I am not a brain scientist or psychiatrist but I do believe in the theory that there is a genetic predisposition; NPD is inherited and then something in the child’s environment triggers the disorder.

    I say this because I come from a very large family, plus extended family and narcissism (and also sociopathy) runs in my family. No matter how hard the narcissistic adults tried to make those who aren’t narcissistic (meaning weren’t genetically predisposed to NPD) to behave like them, they still had empathy for others, played fair and couldn’t become the narcissist the adult wanted them to become. They never lost their moral compass.

    I have many aunts and uncles and out of 37 (first) cousins 9 of them are narcissists and out of my 2nd cousins 3 are narcissistic. We are fairly close in age, give/take 5 or so yrs. I am certain they were born that way and then my narcissistic aunts (or other toxic adults) triggered the narcissism. So, based upon my firsthand real-life experiences with them this is the theory I believe in, although it is not fact.

    I remember from way back when, in our preschool yrs and all throughout elementary school yrs and high school where EVERYTHING always had to be their way and where they were either selfish and bratty and bully-ish or very low-key, quiet, secretive and as passive-aggressive as one can be.

    Either way, they all had a sense of entitlement. They had a mean streak and didn’t play fair. The signs were very apparent very early on, although I didn’t know it was narcissism until I was a university student back in my 20’s.

    As teens and adults they are the most horrid, obnoxious, toxic people who take and don’t give back. So, based upon my personal experiences I think it is genetic and then something in their environment triggers the disorder at some point in early childhood.

    As far as Vijay’s post, NPD/narcissism extends way beyond taking selfies and self-absorption and a preoccupation with one’s appearance and/or image. N’s have no ability to put themselves in the place of others. They are indifferent to others’ needs and struggles. They only care about themselves.

    When I stated that they have a brain disorder (which is the theory I happen to believe in) that was not at all an excuse for their outrageous and insensitive actions and behaviors — but it is rather the reason. JR

    • JanaR

      Your family has a generational curse on it. this is due to sin, and sin being passed on from one generation to another . it is not genetic

      http://www.gotquestions.org/generational-curses.html

      anyone still alive in the family who has not repented of this will not inherit eternal life in heaven with jesus and the Father god

      selfish people go to hell, period. they have the sin of pride.

      I am sending you prayers for deliverance against witchcraft, curses and spirits.

      print them out and say each day for your family

      I am also sending you prayers for unsaved loved ones….and if you are not saved, then consider saying this prayer fr yourself as well

      I will agree with you in prayer for you and your family.

  44. Thank you Marianne. I didn’t think of it that way. I also want to say this; myself and my closest cousin and a few others in my family are not selfish narcissists, sinful people. The ones like myself who are not narcissistic and sinful have been used and abused by the sinful ones, these narcissists, who by the way, do not believe in Jesus. I am not sinful like them and do not associate with them because they are sinful; greedy, self-absorbed, selfish, liars, etc., who don’t care about anyone. They only love money.

    They have also taken control of my young-adult daughter and turned her against me, because of course these sinners didn’t approve of my ways. I do not know how to save my daughter. I haven’t seen her, nor has she contacted me in years.

    She is married to a narcissistic sinner whose (matriarch) narcissistic mother runs a narcissistic family-cult. My daughter was not a sinner until she married into this sinful family and also became closer to the sinful ones in my family. I do not know how to save her.

    Whether or not it’s a generational curse OR genetic I am no longer surrounded by the sinners or associated with them as I’ve severed all ties with the narcissists in my family because their minds are so corrupted.

    My daughter and I and two young grandchildren belong together b/c none of us are narcissistic sinners, except that my daughter has now absorbed some of their ways as I am not allowed in her life and she is influenced by them, including the narcissistic sinners in my family whom I do not speak with b/c they are sinful. I was told the narcissism is genetic.

    Both my family members (whom, as mentioned I no longer have any contact with) AND my daughter’s husband/in-laws know that I am aware they are leading her to sin and they also know that I am sick over it. My prayers have not brought about any change over the few years this has been going on.

    Anyway, they have my daughter and two grandchildren and since she is an adult (married and financially independent of me) I have no way to convince her to divorce her husband and his sinful family and pull her out of that sinful lifestyle… other than prayer, which so far hasn’t seemed to work. Thank you, JR

    • jana

      this is a familiar story.

      the devil and his sinner followers take away our children.

      many victories for the dark side because the innocent do not understand what is going on, and the sinners lie to justify their behavior.

      it is good you have cut of contact….. this helps to stop the damage

      for your lost daughter, it is hard, but you have to put her in Gods hands now…. you cannot get to her, but God can make a way into her heart.

      pray the prayers I sent you and do not give up.

      it may take years, but just do not give up.

      in the meantime, give god thanks, praise and the love he is due, and let him work on your situation.

  45. Thank you so much Marianne. You have no idea how much your kind words have helped me. And, I will download the links and say these prayers daily as you’ve suggested.

    As far as my adult daughter, I also pray that it doesn’t take years.

    It’s already been a few years and the longer she is with these devils the harder it will be to undo the damage. They stripped her of her identity and she believes what they say, including that I am against her when I’ve always been there for her. She even stated several times, “Mom, you are the only person I could always count on and who has always been there for me” ….. and then about a year or so after her wedding a few of my family members, and also the family she married into, sinfully turned her against me.

    I have authored an e-book about this, to raise awareness. Also, so that what happened to me doesn’t happen to others (awareness & prevention) and to also validate and comfort those who have lost a child (typically a teen or adult-child) to these sinful people and who are suffering as I am.

    I believe this is my calling and have dedicated all my time and even given up a social life to work on the e-book, which I’ve been diligently working on every day for the past 3 yrs. It will help/save many, that is, if it sells. I hope the e-book will be finalized in a few months. I am so grief-stricken that sometimes it’s hard to focus. The e-book’s content (280pgs) is completed, but it’s not yet organized and needs edit/final touches.

    Thank you for validating me about doing the right thing — estranging myself from my mother. Others have said ugly things about me for doing so, but as you’d agree estranging myself from her was a step in the right direction.

    By the way, my mother is an Atheist which is also why she turned my daughter against me and everything I’ve taught her and encouraged her own grand-daughter to marry into a devil cult-family. I always knew the Lord did not want me associating with my mother but ignored His words. I regret that I hesitated for yrs and that it took me so long to do the right thing.

    She and other family members (including two siblings whom I no longer speak with) helped facilitate my daughter’s transition by convincing my daughter they were a good family to marry into (when I knew better) as they too, are on the devils side, just like the cult-family — my daughter’s husband and his family she married into. I mention this in my e-book as I know it’s not uncommon and many parents are unaware of this truth/reality.

    I do hope to be the change-agent, the difference-maker, and break this generational curse.

    Thanks again for listening and for your kind words and prayers. JR

  46. I have a son that seems to be afflicted with this as well. My son’s dad, whom I married when I was very young, was also abusive and narcisistic and this son shows a lot of the same behaviors. I pray everyday for him but he seems to be under a strong grip that affects his relationships and finances. Marianne if you have any special prayers to break through, please send them to me as well. I believe Yah has a plan for this son and the enemy is trying to keep him away from his blessing and special calling. Thanks

    • shoshana

      i am sending you prayers against witchcraft, and other spirits.

      print out and say each day

      I will be in agreement with you in prayer to break this stronghold.

  47. I know many of these fit me but I no longer live as a devout Christian. My supposedly saved husband criticized me and judged me so hard I have no real wish now to want to be a saved Christian😦. I just try to be the best I can be especially to my kids. My husband is an abusive man and it took 12 yrs and 3 children to really open my eyes. Currently I’m at an emotional standstill I don’t even know what to do. I feel like I can’t even do anything without him around. He has been coming and going for years since 2008 accusing me of abusing and trying to control him. For some years I started to believe him. I thought he was so perfect and it was not even possible for him to lie. Now I know he’s capable of it just as any normal human is. I thought his abuse emotional physical psychological was my fault because I was so dysfunctional. I guess I’m looking to heal now. I just don’t know how. I did tell him to leave this last time when I realized that he wasn’t being a father to our children. He came and went as he pleased was secretive about the money he made at work. I was clueless and in the dark. And I sucked it in because I wanted my kids to have their dad at home. May 30 he ignored our 9 month old baby when she greeted him. Twice that morning and she was in his face both times and babbling and reaching for him. It was then I knew, he’s not here for anyone but himself. So now he’s gone. I’m sorry I exploded but I’m not sorry he’s gone. I just want to heal now. I just want to move forward with my kids. So many on this list he fits and he is supposed to be so much better than me. I’m not saying I’m better but I don’t think he should have so many of these traits as a saved Christian…. Maybe I’m wrong.

    • aimee

      your frustration is understandable…..you have been around a fake person thinking he may be right, then finding out he is all wrong.

      your husband is NOT a saved christian, he is a demon possessed monster who wants others to think he is right about everything….he is mentally disturbed to the 3rd degree

      abuse and emotional harm is NOT Christ-like…..it is what the world is like, not god

      you do need to heal.and I hope you find your way back to god, realizing that he is the healer, not the abuser.

      there is sin and evil in this world and it has reached a peak….there are places in the world where men slaughter women and children, and other men, just for the joy of it, and they do it for their god allah

      people either choose to serve the one true god, who is all loving and merciful and fair, or they choose to serve the god of this world, who is fake, cruel and insane.

      try to find a good support system near you…family, friends a new social group, or maybe another place where people gather like a coffee shop, gym, art museum, animal shelter, or homeless mission..( just suggestions)….

      I went through an abusive period also, and found acceptance and personal reward in helping the poor at a local homeless mission , where I could see other women and children coming in who had also been abused….the pastors were nice and people’s lives were healed

      that is what i want for you too.

      divorce this beast, get child support, and redefine and reclaim your life

      I wish healing for you and your children……Love is the best healer….I pray you get that back in your life soon with decent people around you.

  48. I know your pain. It is best that he is gone. Look up Narcissism (Wiki has a good description) and it will probably fit his description. They are full of sin and try to infect others. They are toxic and abusive and then they turn around and blame their victims. That’s how all narcissists operate.

    Be aware that he has weakened your intuition — that’s what narcissists do, so that you doubt yourself and don’t trust yourself and may even give up on the Lord. If you’re aware of that you can be one-step ahead and work on it. But be one-step ahead, never one-up him. Stay in prayer with the Lord.

    You don’t want him around. He has already made you and your children feel unworthy. If he doesn’t return consider it a blessing from the Lord. They secretly or openly don’t believe in God because they think they are a god. They use religion to hide the truth in plain sight. They have no empathy which means they have no compassion. There is no treatment or cure.

    All you can do is pray for protection and pray that he doesn’t destroy anyone. He has other victims. Narcissists are full of hatred. I was raised by them and married one. They are emotional sadists. Hope that he doesn’t return. You’ll eventually meet someone who will love you and your children.

    Narcissists covertly turn children away from the loving parent so they can infect them without the loving parent being fully aware. But don’t let him know you are glad that he is gone. Since everything is a game to narcissists he will think ‘you won’…..and he’s not having any of that.

    Blessings and best to you. Don’t blame yourself for HIS disorder. Be there for your children, trust in the Lord and you’ll get through this. JanaR

  49. Really interesting and helpful list Marianne. Thanks very much for posting. I do have a question though. Is all jesting and silliness sinful or just coarse or blasphemous or unkind jesting? I can see that making a hurtful joke at someone else`s expense or gossiping or saying nasty jokes about Jesus could be sin but what about just plain silliness to let off a little steam? Eg sometimes I make up silly stories in emails to my friends of things my pets said or did or send silly pictures. Is that wrong?

    • it is both the motive and the result that counts.

      you may mean no harm, yet still hurt someone.

      or you may intend harm, but the person may not feel hurt.

      either way, the harm is there

      but if you mean to be silly, and everyone enjoys it, then you are ok

  50. This is pathetic

  51. The Sabbath day will always be Saturday. Sunday is the Roman sabbath that eventually in the fourth century they forced by law under penalty of death. Now most believe the lie they inherited despite the fact that Yeshua kept Yahveh’s Sabbath and so did His disciples even after He died and resurrected. Talk about blindness

  52. That’s a lot of information to learn and apply to our life…QUESTION? What are the real penalties for failing to live by these rules or laws of GOD?…..because the Bible says that GOD is merciful but how much will GOD tolerate from our failures?

    • Jesse

      god does not tolerate sin at all.

      that is why jesus died, to take away the punishment for sin, which is hell.

      if we accept his sacrifice for sins, and repent, then we are forgiven

      this list was put here as a reference page, because I have met so many people who do not even know what sin is, and cannot figure out what is wrong with their lives.

  56. WHO HAS BEWITCHED YOU SUNDAY BLIEVERS

    60 Bible Facts on the
    Seventh day of the Week

    1. After working the first six days of the week in creating this earth, God rested on the seventh day. Genesis 2:1-3.

    2. This stamped that day as God’s rest day, or Sabbath day, as Sabbath day means rest day. To illustrate: When a person is born on a certain day, that day thus becomes his birthday. So when God rested upon the seventh day, that day became His rest, or Sabbath, day.

    3. Therefore the seventh day must always be God’s Sabbath day. Can you change your birthday from the day on which you were born to one on which you were not born? No. Neither can you change God’s rest day to a day on which He did not rest. Hence the seventh day is still God’s Sabbath day.

    4. The Creator blessed the seventh day. Genesis 2:3.

    5. He sanctified the seventh day. Exodus 20:11.

    6. He made it the Sabbath day in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 2:1-3.

    7. It was made before the fall; hence it is not a type; for types were not introduced till after the fall.

    8. Jesus says it was made for man, that is, for the race, as the word man is here unlimited; hence, for the Gentile as well as for the Jew. Mark 2:27.

    9. Not only is the Sabbath made for man, but Jesus said that He was Lord of the Sabbath. Mark 2:28.

    10. It is a memorial of creation. Exodus 20:11; 31:17. Every time we rest upon the seventh day, as God did at creation, we commemorate that grand event.

    11. It was given to Adam, the head of the human race. Mark 2:27; Genesis 2:1-3.

    12. It is not a Jewish institution, for it was made 2,300 years before ever there was a Jew.

    13. The Bible never calls it the Jewish Sabbath, but always “the Sabbath of the Lord thy God.” Men should be cautious how they stigmatize God’s holy rest day.

    14. Evident reference is made to the Sabbath and the seven-day week all through the patriarchal age. Genesis 2:1-3; 8:10,12; 29:27,28, etc.

    15. It was a part of God’s law before Sinai. Exodus 16:4,23-29.

    16. Then God placed it in the heart of His moral law. Exodus 20:1-17. Why did He place it there if it was not like the other nine precepts, which all admit to be immutable?

    17. The seventh-day Sabbath was commanded by the voice of the living God. Deuteronomy 4:12,13.

    18. Then He wrote the commandment with His own finger. Exodus 31:18.

    19. He engraved it in the enduring stone, indicating its imperishable nature. Deuteronomy 5:22.

    20. It was sacredly preserved in the ark in the holy of holies. Deuteronomy 10:1-5.

    21. God forbade work upon the Sabbath, even in the most hurrying times. Exodus 34:21.

    22. God destroyed the Israelites in the wilderness because they profaned the Sabbath. Ezekiel 20:12,13.

    23. It is the sign of the true God, by which we are to know Him from the false gods. Ezekiel 20:20.

    24. God promised that Jerusalem should stand forever if the Jews would keep the Sabbath. Jeremiah 17:24,25.

    25. He sent them into the Babylonish captivity for breaking it. Nehemiah 13:18.

    26. He destroyed Jerusalem for its violation. Jeremiah 17:27.

    27. God has pronounced a special blessing on all the Gentiles who will keep it. Isaiah 56:6,7.

    28. This is in the prophecy which refers wholly to the Christian dispensation. See Isaiah 56.

    29. God has promised to bless all who keep the Sabbath. Isaiah 56:2.

    30. The Lord requires us to call it “Honourable.” Isaiah 58:13 Beware, you who take delight in calling it the “old Jewish Sabbath,” “a yoke of bondage,” etc.

    31. After the holy Sabbath has been trodden down “many generations,” it is to be restored in the last days. Isaiah 58:12,13.

    32. All the holy prophets kept the seventh day.

    33. When the Son of God came, He kept the seventh day all His life. Luke 4:16; John 15:10. Thus He followed His Father’s example at creation. Shall we not be safe in following the example of both the Father and the Son?

    34. The seventh day is the Lord’s day. See Revelation 1:10; Mark 2:28; Isaiah 58:13; Exodus 20:10.

    35. Jesus was Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:28), that is, to love and protect it, as the husband is the lord of the wife, to love and cherish her. 1 Peter 3:6.

    36. He vindicated the Sabbath as a merciful institution designed for man’s good. Mark 2:23-28.

    37. Instead of abolishing the Sabbath, He carefully taught how it should be observed. Matthew 12:1-13.

    38. He taught His disciples that they should do nothing upon the Sabbath day but what was “lawful.” Matthew 12:12.

    39. He instructed His apostles that the Sabbath should be prayerfully regarded forty years after His resurrection. Matthew 24:20.

    40. The pious women who had been with Jesus carefully kept the seventh day after His death. Luke 23:56.

    41. Thirty years after Christ’s resurrection, the Holy Spirit expressly calls it “the Sabbath day.” Acts 13:14.

    42. Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, called it the “Sabbath day” in A.D. 45. Acts 13:27. Did not Paul know? Or shall we believe modern teachers, who affirm that it ceased to be the Sabbath at the resurrection of Christ?

    43. Luke, the inspired Christian historian, writing as late as A.D. 62, calls it the “Sabbath day.” Acts 13:44.

    44. The Gentile converts called it the Sabbath. Acts 13:42.

    45. In the great Christian council, A.D. 49, in the presence of the apostles and thousands of disciples, James calls it the “Sabbath day.” Acts 15:21.

    46. It was customary to hold prayer meetings upon that day. Acts 16:13.

    47. Paul read the Scriptures in public meetings on that day. Acts 17:2,3.

    48. It was his custom to preach upon that day. Acts 17:2,3.

    49. The Book of Acts alone gives a record of his holding eighty-four meetings upon that day. See Acts 13:14,44; 16:13; 17:2; 18:4,11.

    50. There was never any dispute between the Christians and the Jews about the Sabbath day. This is proof that the Christians still observed the same day that the Jews did.

    51. In all their accusations against Paul, they never charged him with disregarding the Sabbath day. Why did they not, if he did not keep it?

    52. But Paul himself expressly declared that he had kept the law. “Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.” Acts 25:8. How could this be true if he had not kept the Sabbath?

    53. The Sabbath is mentioned in the New Testament fifty-nine times, and always with respect, bearing the same title it had in the Old Testament, “the Sabbath day.”

    54. Not a word is said anywhere in the New Testament about the Sabbath’s being abolished, done away, changed, or anything of the kind.

    55. God has never given permission to any man to work upon it. Reader, by what authority do you use the seventh day for common labor?

    56. No Christian of the New Testament, either before or after the resurrection, ever did ordinary work upon the seventh day. Find one case of the kind, and we will yield the question. Why should modern Christians do differently from Bible Christians?

    57. There is no record that God has ever removed His blessing or sanctification from the seventh day?

    58. As the Sabbath was kept in Eden before the fall, so it will be observed eternally in the new earth after the restitution. Isaiah 66:22,23.

    59. The seventh-day Sabbath was an important part of the law of God, as it came from His own mouth, and was written by His own finger upon stone at Sinai. See Exodus 20. When Jesus began His work, He expressly declared that He had not come to destroy the law. “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets.” Matthew 5:17.

    60. Jesus severely condemned the Pharisees as hypocrites for pretending to love God, while at the same time they made void one of the Ten Commandments by their tradition. The keeping of Sunday is only a tradition of men.

    First Day of the Week
    1. The very first thing recorded in the Bible is work done on Sunday, the first day of the week. Genesis 1:1-5. This was done by the Creator Himself. If God made the earth on Sunday, can it be wicked for us to work on Sunday?

    3. None of the patriarchs kept it.

    4. None of the holy prophets ever kept it.

    5. By the express command of God, His holy people used the first day of the week as a common working day for 4,000 years, at least.

    8. He never blessed it.

    9. Christ did not rest upon it.

    10. Jesus was a carpenter (Mark 6:3), and worked at His trade until He was thirty years old. He kept the Sabbath and worked six days in the week, as all admit. Hence, He did many a hard day’s work on Sunday.

    12. The apostles never rested upon it.

    13. Christ never blessed it.

    14. It has never been blessed by any divine authority.

    15. It has never been sanctified.

    16. No law was ever given to enforce the keeping of it, hence it is no transgression to work upon it. “Where no law is, there is no transgression.” Romans 4:15. See also 1 John 3:4.

    17. The New Testament nowhere forbids work to be done on it.

    18. No penalty is provided for its violation.

    19. No blessing is promised for its observance.

    22. It is never called the Sabbath day at all.

    23. It is never called the Lord’s day.

    24. It is never called even a rest day.

    27. Jesus never mentioned it in any way, never took its name upon His lips, so far as the record shows.

    28. The word Sunday never occurs in the Bible at all.

    29. Neither God, Christ, nor inspired men ever said one word in favor of Sunday as a holy day.

    30. The first day of the week is mentioned only eight times in all the New Testament. Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2,9; Luke 24:1; John 20:1,19; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2.

    31. Six of these texts refer to the same first day of the week.

    32. Paul directed the saints to look over their secular affairs on that day. 1 Corinthians 16:2.

    33. In all the New Testament we have a record of only one religious meeting held upon that day, and even this was a night meeting. Acts 20:5-12.

    34. There is not an implication that they ever held a meeting upon it before or after that.

    35. It was not their custom to meet on that day.

    36. There was no requirement to break bread on that day.

    37. We have an account of only one instance in which it was done. Acts 20:7.

    39. The Bible nowhere says that the first day of the week commemorates the resurrection of Christ. This is a tradition of men, which contradicts the law of God. Matthew 15:1-9. Baptism commemorates the burial and resurrection of Jesus. Romans 6:3-5.

    40. Finally, the New Testament is totally silent with regard to any change of the Sabbath day or any sacredness for the first day.

    Here are one hundred plain Bible facts upon this question, showing conclusively that the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord in both the Old and New Testament.

    You may now be asking yourself, is all of this important, does it really matter? Well, let me close with this verse.”Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Rev. 22:14.
