    A Form of Godliness That Is Not of God... The Mystery of Lawlessness at Work...

    Hello Folks...

    The world is changing... Based on change that does not have its foundation in goodness, and innocence as our Creator defines it... It appeals to the youth because it is a form of rebellion... Something hip, and cool so to speak, and that which propagates a self-centered rationalization of one's mindset... "Do what thou wilt!"...

    The consequences for such vile behavior will come to pass as God will judge this world in HIS SPIRIT, and in TRUTH... Once one is given over to this abased spiritual condition, it literally takes a miracle to take the heart of stone, developed through continual lawless behavior, to a heart of flesh... With God all things are possible, but one has to be a willing participant in this change as well...

    Peace has alluded humanity throughout the ages because of mankind's unwillingness to obey the Creator of all... But in God's mercy, HE will send HIS SON to save humanity, and bring forth righteousness, and justice in order that mankind can truly experience the benefit of living in a world where Satan's influence will not exist.. At least for a thousand year period as Revelation chapter 20 points out this fallen one will be released for a short period of time of God's choosing... Where his release, and temptations will once again prove that no matter how much evidence is presented in the physical realm of how beneficial God's WAYS are for mankind, there are many that will still give into the alternative method of spiritual governance which leads to destruction...

    This is where we are at folks, and the man who created this video does a fine job of narrating, and observation... Making great points based on what our Savior prophesied would occur long ago in the current age we live in before Jesus Christ's imminent return... Humanities only hope... Which is not a hope that has an end leading to vanity...

    The grace of God as His Word, the Son of God defines it to be, has been confused in many ways since our Savior died nearly 2,000 to deliver us from the bondage of sin, and into His glorious Light... Being born again through the Lord Jesus Christ is most certainly not a license to sin, but to deliver us from such a carnal state of being that all, except for ONE, have been conceived in... The only begotten Son of God coming forth from God via the Holy Spirit to come in frail flesh, and to save us from certain eternal death as His Father decreed HE would even before the foundations of the world were created.. (Revelation chapter 13 verse 8):

    " 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made."

    With that being said one must not confuse the writings of Paul to come to a conclusion that the commandments of God were done away with, and are no longer necessary to be maintained by born again believers... Yes, without grace one is not forgiven sin through the works of keeping the commandments of God, and never was... The penalty of breaking the Law of liberty was nailed to the cross, not the Law as Christ Jesus represents Himself to be as perfect.. Were the Law imperfect, than our Savior would be as well, and would not have been worthy to die for our transgressions as the Lamb of God... But being that HE is God, who came in the flesh as the Son of God, we understand that He meets the standard to be worthy to die for the iniquity of all mankind, and through HIM alone are we granted grace, and mercy... As well as the ability to overcome sin with HIS Spiritual presence in us... Therefore magnifying the perfect Law of liberty by writing God's commandments upon our hearts, and minds to know them, and hopefully readily accept them from the Spiritual perspective our Lord, as the Word of God, is to be embraced...

    I wrote the below commentary in response to a very fine article that was written by Joseph Farah on WND... Here is the link of that article, and I wrote it under the name Mathblaster... Here is the link to that article.. "https://www.wnd.com/2022/08/wasnt-law-nailed-cross/

    Paul admitted to be an very avid Pharisee... God used this man's zeal to preach the Truth rather than a religion that had mislead many including those who had been teaching this form of righteousness... They had taken God's Law, HIS commandments, and rewritten how some of these 10 rules were to be kept... Therefore making it a burden for everyone else except themselves... Because of their positions of authority within their religion, they fooled themselves into believing they were exempt from exercising aspects of it they were accusing our Savior from breaking... Which is why Jesus declared, "do as they say, not as they do," in Matthew chapter 23... They were reading from the Word of God, but they most certainly were not exercising the will of our Father...


    Rewriting the rules God has written with His very finger upon stone, and Christ Jesus died to have them written on our hearts, and minds, is a sin of course... The abuse, and misunderstanding of God's grace over the centuries has led to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ being trampled, as well as the division that exists amongst brethren... There was a reason why Jesus addressed 7 spiritual conditions that would dominate those who declared their belief in HIM within Revelation chapters 2, and 3... 5 of those conditions were instructed to repent for their lack of faith in the true gospel concerning our Savior.. Only 2 of those spiritual conditions were encouraged to continue in their faith, and not deviate from the Truth they were exercising with the guidance of their Teacher Jesus Christ...

    As Jesus declared in Matthew chapter 24, many would come in His Name, and in vain use this Name that is above all other's for improper reasons... We have to be careful of thinking we can actually change that which represents the perfect Law of liberty... The very reason our Savior died was to ensure the Law of God was magnified within one who believes on HIM through the power of the Holy Spirit... Which is why Jesus proclaimed to His apostles, as well as those of us who would be called to believe in HIM in Spirit, and Truth within John chapter 16 that His crucifixion was necessary in order that the Helper would be granted us... Enabling us to have a relationship with HIM on a spiritual level... As we overcome the pitfalls of sin within ourselves with HIS help, and put on HIS righteousness in order to ensure our growth in grace, and in true knowledge concerning the very Word our Savior represents, takes place... As Jesus declared in John chapter 16:


    "7But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor¬óCounselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you[to be in close fellowship with you].8And He, when He comes, will convict the world about[the guilt of]sin[and the need for a Savior],and about righteousness, and about judgment: 9 about sin [and the true nature of it], because they do not believe in Me [and My message]; 10 about righteousness [personal integrity and godly character], because I am going to My Father and you will no longer see Me; 11 about judgment[the certainty of it], because the ruler of this world (Satan) has been judged and condemned."

    How is sin defined by God?.. By the breaking of God's commandments... Do we continue in sin after have been shown grace through our Lord Jesus Christ?... Or do we dare justify changing the perfect Law of liberty to suit our own desires, or lifestyle?... Does God need to change the very Word HE represents?... Is not Christ Jesus the perfect Lamb of God who died to help us to overcome our imperfection because of breaking the very Word HE represents?... Do we declare to God how we are to worship HIM by changing the WAY, TRUTH, and LIFE?....

    Is it not God's Law, (not the ceremonial washings, or animal sacrifices or laws pertaining to what Jesus would fulfill through His death, and resurrection), that we should continue to faithfully adhere to in order to grow in the very grace that is shown us through the knowledge of what God considers holy, and good?.. Reconciliation to Truth is of utmost importance for us to grow spiritually, and work out the precious, and priceless Gift of salvation that one could never earn by works of the Law alone... But through the grace shown us through the Lord Jesus Christ, are we granted life eternal... But with the responsibility to work it out in accordance to our Father in heaven's will...

    Blessings, and thank you Joseph for declaring the Truth concerning our responsibility as Christians to allow for the very Word our Savior represents to be magnified within us via the Spirit of God... If we ignore, or deny this spiritual help received by the indwelling of God's Spirit, how can one be reconciled to God?... That is the primary reason HE died...

    I also wrote this in response to another post concerning that article:

    But that does not mean the commandments of God are done away with... I suppose we can murder, and commit sexual immorality now that we are no longer under the law... The grace of God is shown us not through our exercising of the perfect law of liberty alone.. Our works are certainly not sufficient enough simply because we are conceived in a sinful state as David pointed out in Psalm chapter 51... But with that being said, once remission of sin is granted one through the Son of God, do we continue to break the very Word our Savior represents, or even dare to change the perfection HE represents as the Word of God?...


    Working out, (not for our redemption) our salvation is important to understand from the standpoint of realizing that God is good, and we are not worthy at all of HIM... Our whole purpose of being granted life through His Son is to ensure we are faithful to God in accordance to His commandments... Not the doctrines of mankind, nor demons... This is how Satan has deceived a great many is through clever arguments that make it appear that those who keep the commandments of God are working for their salvation... Even though those who proclaim it is through the grace shown us by the Father through His only Begotten Son, we are saved from certain spiritual death...


    Who does Satan focus his wrath upon during these end times?.. Revelation chapter 12 verse 17 declares:

    "17So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went off to wage war on the rest of her children (seed), those who keep and obey the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus [holding firmly to it and bearing witness to Him]."

    We must allow for God to magnify Himself within us... Which means allowing for Him to write His commandments upon our hearts, and minds spiritually... The perfect Law of liberty being written in stone was not good enough as Ancient Israel proved... We have to embrace them on a spiritual level in order to overcome, and continue to grow in the grace shown us through our Beloved Savior... Who died, and was resurrected to ensure this could be possible through HIMSELF...

    As Paul stated in Romans chapter 6: "6What shall we say then?Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?2Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?3Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?"


    And continued within this same chapter of Romans:

    "15What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!16Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?17But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were[e] delivered. 18And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.19I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.


    Once one walks in the newness of life everlasting through the Son, the commandments of God have been magnified within us, and the ability to grow in the grace, and knowledge of our Savior is made possible... The Law, or commandments of God are spiritual, and had we not been given them would we know not to murder, commit adultery, covet, steal, bear false witness, not to make graven images, nor worship them, have no other gods before God, not utilize God's Name in vain, to honor our parents, as well as keep the 7th day sabbath holy?...


    We could never be granted forgiveness by maintaining the law because our own righteousness would never be sufficient... We were born in a sinful state, and our Savior died to release us from bondage on a spiritual level in order that we walk as a born again believer in this physical life we have been granted by Godin order to be a light to the world...


    These physical bodies are essentially a training ground for our spirits in order to work out the most precious, and unearned Gift of salvation... Preparing for eternity to be spent with our Loving Father, and Wonderful Savior... We respond to His Spirit of Truth to ensure we live in accordance to His will while in the flesh...

    Our world's troubles are based on a lack of obedience to our Creator's will... Adhering to the council of that serpent of old, Satan the devil, has led to an ongoing fight, and an awful lot of confusion concerning what is right, and wrong... Even amongst brethren... But it does not have to be confusing for those who rely, and place their full trust, and faith in the Spirit of God... That GIFT through Christ Jesus granted one through repentance that keeps on giving... As long as one is listening to the Spirit, and not conforming through deceptive persuasion to the devil's manipulation of God's Word... Blessings, and may our hearts, and minds be fully subject to the desire of our Most Excellent, and Loving Father... Take care..
