What did Christ do when tempted? Did he quote the New Testament? Or did he quote the Law? There was no New Testament at the time He was tempted. We
are to walk as he walked. The New Testament is just as valid as the old and vice versa.
Galatians 3:5 "He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing
Just observing the written letter of Torah does not save us. It cannot bring forth anything in and of itself. Faith must work with it, or it is
futile. I am not saying that people who don't observe the Law cannot have the Holy Spirit. Just that obedience makes our faith that we already have
perfect. For what means more? Actual baptism or the faith you had in getting in the water? The faith you had first.
1 Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them,
because they are spiritually discerned."
Romans 7:14 "For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin"
Romans 7:12 "Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good."
If Paul is saying that the Law is holy and just and good, then why do people think it is done away with? He cannot have a split personality. Paul can
be hard to understand. Christ is very plain in the Spirit. To those outside He speaks in parables. If one twists His words then one is spitting in the
face of the Almighty and will suffer for it. The Law is holy, and the correct interpretation was given by Christ. He did not even give a new command,
and anything new in the "New Testament" was already prophesied in the Old.
Psalm 119:1 " Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD."
If the Law of God is perfect and those who walk in it are undefiled, then how can Dispensationalism make any sense?
Jesus Christ is the Word of God made flesh, and if He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, the Torah cannot change at all. Who are we to obey?
God or men? He did not come to abolish parts of Himself on the cross. Heaven and earth are still here, thus they are great witnesses against the Law
abolishing paradigm. There are no New Heavens and New Earth yet are there? I am done with this. I have said what I have said for the sake of believers
not to further my own cause. I am not a cultist or Judiazer. I am a follower of the Messiah Jesus Christ Yehoshua ha Mashicah and the God of the
Universe. The God of the Bible. There is no other.
You have no background in biblical studies
2 Corinthians 3:1 "Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation
I do not need a theological degree to understand the very basic tenets of Scripture. Scripture is for all men to understand, and to glory in degrees
is pride and in vain. The Spirit teaches us all things, not Pastor fill in the blank because he went to school. Not to say that they are all bad. Then
again my job is not to say it nicely if someone is genuinely in error they must be corrected. Always out of love and in gentleness, yet sometimes
harsh consequences are needed. Sometimes it must be said in the most plain of ways. No beating around the bush.
you need to go all the way with Christ, or go all the way with Moses. Falling in the middle is the cult zone.
Or do we need to go all the way with both? I leave you with this:
John 5:39 "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
John 5:40 "And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life."
John 5:41 "I receive not honour from men."
John 5:42 "But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you."
John 5:43" I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive."
John 5:44 "How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?"
John 5:45 "Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust."
John 5:46 "FOR HAD YE BELIEVED MOSES, YE WOULD HAVE BELIEVED ME, FOR HE WROTE OF ME
John 5:47 "BUT IF YE BELIEVE NOT HIS WRITINGS HOW SHALL YE BELIEVE MY WORDS?
