New Covenant Faith and Doctrine for the Very Last Times. Christ was tolerant. We Must Follow Him.
Righteousness Does Not Come By Law
20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law;rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
Righteousness Through Faith
21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.22 This righteousness is given through faith in[h] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[i] through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith.28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too,30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith.31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
This list of crucial Christian doctrine is not every crucial doctrine but is enough to separate the believer from the false churches. Three pillars of Christian doctrine: 1. Christ is God along with the Father and Spirit. Christ's righteousness is God's gift to those saved. 2. The law of Moses cannot save people. Only the gospel can save. The law of Moses is external to the heart. It is good, but acts as a curse on mankind as only Jesus could keep it. The gospel of faith in Jesus comes from above. 3. The true Christian is saved by predestination, not at all by free will. No one believes unless drawn to Christ. -----‐---------------------- Preserve the blessing in Christ: A. Flee the Denominations. Flee Sacralist religion. B. Flee all cults that seek to control your lives as well, fellow believers! C. Flee those who teach Christ was begotten in heaven. He was only begotten on earth, being called the Son after He was born and then begotten at the Resurrection. Christ was the
The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are grateful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved. But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away. The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless. So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial
Saturday is not the Christian Sabbath. Sunday is not the Christian Sabbath. Jesus Christ is the Christian Sabbath. The Apostle Paul says the elements play no part in the Spiritual New Covenant. He says that it is not about what you eat or drink or about Sabbath Days. Yes Christ came in the flesh. God walked on the earth as a man while God the Father was in heaven and the God the Holy Spirit was in Him and was going to be sent as another advocate to the disciples upon His death and resurrection. (John Chapter 14.). But Christ walked on the earth to fulfill the law of Moses. And His resurrection abolished the law of Moses. (Eph 2:15) With the abolition of those elemental rules, the Sabbath can no longer be just a day. Paul said, in Colossians 2:16-17: "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ." NiV So, Paul is saying that the bo
