This is in bible study because answers should be biblically based and I'd like to avoid personal comments since they add nothing to a discussion.
I hear many say that Jesus has come to abolish the law because we are no longer under the law. This comes from
It seems to me that Jesus plainly states that He did NOT come to abolish the law.
So, the law is a set of commands that God has given us.
Did Jesus give us any commands that we are to follow?
If so, what are they?
If not, why not.
John 14:15 says:
"If you love Me, you will keep my commandments". (NASB)
Why in this information age, are most Christians keeping Sunday? The information is available at the touch of a mouse. The Sabbath was changed by a Roman Emperor, He passed a Law that no one would any longer keep any of the Jewish Feasts or their Sabbaths. We will keep the First Day of the week,Sunday, and if you disobeyed this Law you were Executed. Constantine was a worshiper of Sol Invictus Mithra, The Sun God!! Thus Sun-Day! By keeping Sun-Day we are obeying a Roman Emperor. Not the Fourth Commandment,or God, Or our Savior. In Matthew 19: 16-17 Yeshua is approached by a young man that says- ver 16- Good teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life? 17- Yeshua says to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good...
I am sure I am on ground where we say, we just can't know here and now. But, something to chew on. And I have no answer.
God gave us a will. And we exercise that will. And we reap the consequences of that will, good or bad.
Just as with Adam and Eve, when our will is in conflict with God's will, we have problems. When Satans will was and is in conflict with God's will, he had and does have problems.
So, why would God give us a will, when only His will will be acknowledged? In other words, throughout eternity, in heaven, my will, and the will of everyone there will always be God's will.
So, how is my will, my will, if it will always be God's will?
Just as eternity is impossible for us to contemplate, to me, my will...
It is a common error for religious preachers/teachers to assume that the Pauline Gospel of Grace should be blended in with what Jesus and the 11 preached. I feel this is a deadly error that will send many to Hell.
Gal 1:8 NKJV
8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
It is a fact that God has given humankind different requirements down through history. The Pauline Gospel of salvation by faith in what God did on the cross (His shed blood) is without precedence in the scriptures. When a person fails to see this they will always blend the Law of Moses (what Jesus and the 11 taught to the Jews) with grace and destroy both of them. Paul warned...
Often I come upon scripture that greatly puzzles me; scripture I would like to get feedback from others on. I could post new threads every day. Instead of flooding the board with questions that may be easily resolved, I am creating one thread to discuss open questions.
If anyone else has scripture they want to present before the brethern for feedback yet they don't want to begin a new thread, this is the place. This thread is open to any topic; open to any scripture that causes questions.
I have a question that pertains to:
Revelation 11:8 KJV
 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Why is: the great city referred to...
...and who we are called to be "in Him."
The sons of Sceva saw demons being cast out easily v.12, and thought they could do the same. But they were unable yet we know that Paul had success!
The sons of Sceva thought that speaking the name of Jesus and the authority of the name of Christ was enough, ....but they didn’t realize that the demons in the man could see that they had no authority because the men were not "in Christ."
They were not yet been fully born-again by the Spirit of God.
Unseen demonic spirits that have managed to gain access into a person’s life can see into the spiritual unseen realm as well as the physical realm.
Again and again in the Scriptures, when demons in people saw Jesus coming, they fell...
