The Commandments of God, Part 4: “Christians & The Old Testament Law”

To read Part 1, click here…JULY 28 (The Commandments of God, Part 1: The True Light Now Shineth!)

There is great confusion in the Christian world as to exactly what is our relationship to the Old Testament and its many statutes.

.

One radio show host divided the Old Testament laws into three categories: the moral law, the civil law, and the ceremonial law. Now many Bible teachers also add the health laws.

.

“ADD THOU NOT, NEITHER DIMINISH OUGHT!”

.

But the problem with all this theological categorizing is that they are unwittingly adding to the Bible, names that God never named. In other words, theologians try to “help God out” by attempting to analyze the Bible according to human understanding.

.

But God warns us not to add to His infallible Word, nor diminish ought from His Word.

.

And so, the Christian must never attempt to add or take away from God’s finished Word. Oh yes, teachers may attempt to interpret the Bible, as long as they proclaim that their interpretations are not infallible. But the practice of adding non-biblical names to Scripture cannot be biblically supported!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“If any man…add…God shall add unto him the plagues…herein”

Revelation 22:18

.

But even more than this “adding to and diminishing ought”, these erring teachers now claim that Christians are not required to obey the so-called civil, ceremonial, and health laws. “Only the moral law is now to be obeyed by Christians”, they say.

.

This even makes their transgression more grievous to God, and becomes a stumbling block for church-goers!

ALL SCRIPTURE TO BE OBEYED!

.

Listen… “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2nd Timothy 3:16, 17

.

All Scripture is profitable and very relevant to the Christian, and is to be obeyed.

“Yet the LORD hath not given you…eyes to see, and ears to hear” Deuteronomy 24:4

.

In today’s apostate church-world, there is a spiritual blindness which forbids most of the Christian community from seeing the spiritual nature of the Bible. They do not perceive that the Old Testament is the Gospel of Jesus, howbeit veiled in allegories, proverbs, types, shadows and symbols. Today’s Christian teachers and theologians even forbid Christians from interpreting the Bible spiritually, for the most part.

.

And so, when the Old Testament speaks of earthly things, they cannot see the heavenly meaning, to a great extent.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

EARTH: PLANET OF REST

.

Counting the Sun as the 1st heavenly sphere, the Earth is the 4th heavenly sphere. If we extend our theory (and it’s just a theory) that God created our solar system to correspond to thehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Globeblack.PNG commandments, the Sun corresponding to the 1st Commandment, then Planet Earth would correspond to the 4th Commandment: the Seventh-day Sabbath.

 .

And so, on the very planet that corresponds to the commandment that exalts the idea of “peace” and “rest”, there exists very little peace. And very little rest. Ironic, isn’t it?
