That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
The promise that God made to Abraham was not the law or the rules that must be followed. It was that his children would be saved through faith. All people that are believers in Christ are included in that promise. We need to remember that the law was created for the man, but the promise was created for the salvation.
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Anyone who believes onto Christ is considered a child of Abraham. This is important because that the true promise to Abraham was his children will receive salvation. Our faith in Christ is what connects us to Abraham. We are his children.
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
God is telling Isaac about the land he promised to his father Abraham. This promise land is the region of Palestine not limited to one county on today’s map. The important thing to remember about the promise land is that the reward is not the land but that salvation. Christ will reign over the whole world when he returns.
And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.
This holiday week let us give thanks to the Lord for all of our blessings. We do not have anything in our life except it been given to us by the Lord. Let us remember the important things in our lives, with our faith in Christ at the forefront. Thank you Lord for everything.
Let the Church and all men respect the resurrection, for with it there is hope for all mankind. Come together and worship on the first day of the week—but remember God always. Keep the Lord’s day holy.
There are four places in the messages that John tells us that we should worship on Sundays. Any other idea is of the devil and causes confusion. Don’t be tripped up by the ideas of man. Stay grounded in the truth that is Christ.
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Christ rose on the first day of the week. This is why we worship him on Sundays. As Christians we celebrate the gift of everlasting life that Christ brought to us. This gift was completed when he arose, hence the reason that we worship him on Sundays.
The binding of Satan will be and a reign of peace shape into place.
Times are going to get better. God promises us that Satan will be punished. I can’t wait for this day.
Every tree the Lord has not planted shall be rooted up. If they hear not this message, the light they claim to have will fade away. This is the midnight cry the scriptures speak of—are you ready?
Will you listen to the word sent by God? You need act on if you believe.
If they speak against this work believing not that I come, they have not God—and will not be of the bride, the Lamb’s Church in the end. He that believeth not these words nor cometh not to obedience, hath not God. God’s plan will not change to suit them that believe not, they must conform to his will.
We have to do God’s will and follow his plan. Once we know God’s will we have to follow it. We cannot do our own thing.
If you have any questions or topics that you want to know more about please let us know. You can comment on this post, e-mail them to me at email@example.com or on our Facebook account.
Many represent Christ and have faith to do many miracles. This is good, if they hear the final call—this the midnight cry and obey it. Their works will stand the test.
Those people who have a great faith and do a great work for God are doing a great thing. The important thing to remember is though when they hear about this work they have to decide wither they will follow Christ or not. If they don’t follow Christ their works will not stand the test of time. Let us pray for them to follow the truth.
1 Peter 2:1-6
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Christ is the corner stone of the church. Everything the church stands for comes from Christ. If you are told something that goes against the teachings of Christ then it is not part of his church. We have to stay on that stone for it is solid and unchangeable.
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
As much hype that has been in the news lately about accountability, it is important to remember who we are accountable too. In the end we are only accountable to God for our actions. We should not judge others in their actions or motives, but strive to teach them the word of God. God will have his judgment in the end.
Verily, verily, ye say ye love me. Where is your God that created thee? Know ye not that I know thee and know your whereabouts? I led many from the way of darkness and ye have contended selfishly to your woe, driving the good Spirit away; and doubt has entered the minds of some. Some that say they are not accountable for their folly; this is not of me, your living God. I speak these words of truth and they shall have their place among my children. Yea, trust me ye flocks, and I shall bear thee up at the last day. I am your God, I change not. I love thee and shall bless much, as your faith is. I leave my peace upon you.’ ”
We need to stay true to the word of God. We will be held accountable for all of our actions when we face judgment. There is no point in hiding in the false belief that it does not matter what we do on earth. We must repent of our sins follow Christ to have his salvation.
Now when Ammon and his brethren separated themselves in the borders of the land of the Lamanites, behold Aaron took his journey towards the land which was called by the Lamanites, Jerusalem, calling it after the land of their fathers’ nativity; and it was away joining the borders of Mormon. Now the Lamanites and the Amalekites and the people of Amulon had built a great city, which was called Jerusalem. Now the Lamanites of themselves were sufficiently hardened, but the Amalekites and the Amulonites were still harder; therefore they did cause the Lamanites that they should harden their hearts, that they should wax stronger in wickedness and their abominations. And it came to pass that Aaron came to the city of Jerusalem, and firstly began to preach to the Amalekites. And he began to preach to them in their synagogues, for they had built synagogues after the order of the Nehors; for many of the Amalekites and the Amulonites were after the order of the Nehors. Therefore, as Aaron entered into one of their synagogues to preach unto the people, and as he was speaking unto them, behold there arose an Amalekite and began to contend with him, saying: What is that that thou hast testified? Hast thou seen an angel? Why do not angels appear unto us? Behold art not this people as good as thy people? Thou also sayest, except we repent we shall perish. How knowest thou the thought and intent of our heart? How knowest thou that we have cause to repent? How knowest thou that we are not a righteous people? Behold, we have built sanctuaries, and we do assemble ourselves together to worship God. We do believe that God will save all men. Now Aaron said unto him: Believest thou that the Son of God shall come to redeem mankind from their sins? And the man saith unto him: We do not believe that thou knowest any such thing. We do not believe in these foolish traditions. We do not believe that thou knowest of things to come, neither do we believe that thy fathers and also that our fathers did know concerning the things which they spake, of that which is to come. Now Aaron began to open the scriptures unto them concerning the coming of Christ, and also concerning the resurrection of the dead, and that there could be no redemption for mankind save it were through the death and sufferings of Christ, and the atonement of his blood. And it came to pass that as he began to expound these things unto them they were angry with him, and began to mock him; and they would not hear the words which he spake. Therefore, when he saw that they would not hear his words, he departed out of the synagogue, and came over to a village which was called Ani-anti, and there he found Muloki a preaching the word unto them; and also Ammah and his brethren. And they contended with many about the word. And it came to pass that they saw that the people would harden their hearts, therefore they departed and came over into the land of Middoni. And they did preach the word unto many, and few believed on the words which they taught.
Don’t be like the Amalekites. The Amalekites were so deep into their own tradition that they would not hear the world of God. Even with Ammon used scripture they would not believe. You do not want to be one of the non believers with Christ comes back. All the information is there for you to study, the question is will you listen?
For the faithful, the sojourn in the wilderness is nearing an end, the Gentile times are closing in. The day comes when it will be said, ‘The people of the Lord’ and them that serve him not. Be ye repentant and the Lord will hear and heal all the weak and make you strong.
The end is coming. Are you ready for it? Are you going to be one of “The people of the Lord”? The choice is yours.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Christ is the reason that we all have salvation. Every person on earth has the chance if he or she chooses so. We can be very thankful for this gift that released us from the curse of the law. With Christ all can be forgiven and all can be saved.
