LAW Kills, GRACE/TRUTH gives life. WORTH CONSIDERING 2/25/21
IT WAS MOSES UNTIL THE RESURRECTION AND THEN JESUS AS THE WORD OF GOD TOOK OVER FROM THERE.
It is no longer a Moses LAW game of life, now it is all about Jesus. Moses shared about the shadow of things to come. It is now, Jesus that it is all about in TRUTH. Over 300 prophesies in the Old Testament about Jesus and most have been fulfilled. The Kingdom will not be about traditions or culture but about GOD’S Holy Truth in Christ Jesus in Righteousness. It is about having totally clean air, no smell at all. I will always be a Kentucky Hillbilly as a starting point in time but today I don’t even look or smell like one because of Jesus. I dearly loved my Great Grandfather but Jesus is now LORD. We are to be conformed to HIS image and likeness and not to any other. As Women are more like the Holy Spirit, I point them in that direction.
The Jews hated the departure of Jesus from their vain traditions and murdered HIM. And their house was left desolate, destroyed. Not one stone left standing upon another. We so tend to build houses of Pride so our little ego is comfortable. Pride is always looking for a home better than next door, but pride must be put on the cross. Before honor is humility and God resists the proud and gives Grace to the humble. Christians are to teach and preach Christ Jesus as Lord and HIM crucified for our sins and then God will Honor what we are about. Otherwise it is a waste of life and like being parked on a side tract like a train going no where. In Christ Jesus I am no longer a Jew or a Gentile but a new creation in Christ Jesus.
Culture can not change TRUTH nor add to it. Culture may be a flavor, but that is it. Traditions and Culture made the Word of God ineffective according to Jesus and they were Jewish Traditions and Cultures. We will never experience the resurrection power of Jesus on earth except by walking in the TRUTH of GOD as HE gave it to us. And I would be the first to say that I also need more fine tuning my self. But any obsession with any culture or with the Jewish culture and traditions did the Jews no good so why should we expect it to be different with us or anyone else. Traditions and Culture only tends to breed Pride and Ego. It is in walking out the Truth of God that sets us free by HIS Grace.
Obedience, if in obedience and humility to change direction to the light what is revealed by God in Christ Jesus, is what works. But God resists the proud but and gives Grace (Power) to the humble. The way up, is down. We should only want to bring to the table what is clear in the Holy Scriptures, “Once Delivered.” Personally, I am happy with that and truly want my Adamic rebellious sinful nature to die and be dead in Christ Jesus. I prefer to be like Jesus than Adam. And my Creator has seen to it that I have a personal choice to renounce my past and be born into the Family of God. My new nature in Christ Jesus as LORD has nothing to do with my old culture or family. It has only to do with God’s Truth. I have moved through many interesting “Cultures” in my life and none seem to have contributed much if anything to God’s Truth. Most have been in the way. Most only seem to elevate me as a person or perhaps an organization and ultimately cause a division between the soul and the Holy Spirit who is seeking to bring me into a John 17 unity with my Creator, my heavenly Father. Ever really study through the Lord’s Prayer in John 17 ? What ever Jesus prayed for will come to pass. All have been invited into this Godly Unity in Righteousness but most have responded that the are just a bit too busy to attend. Hope you will be there at the great banquet feast of unity in the Kingdom of God, Rev. 19

There is but ONE Church of Christ Jesus as LORD;
All who Love Honor and Obey Jesus are eternal members.
TRAVEL GUIDE TO THE BIG ISLAND: https://www.hawaii-guide.com/big-island
In a shallow relationship with God, we will find ourselves being tossed to and fro by stormy waves of circumstance. James describes such a person as “double-minded” and unstable. In his trials, he cannot exercise faith because he hasn’t gone deep with the Lord. However, when we seek that deeper relationship with Him, we can enter another perspective on what’s happening at the surface. Seeking and abiding in the depths of Yeshua, our Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace) will bring a peace that passes understanding, even in the midst of great storms. The double-minded man has not yet sought or found this place — since not everyone is willing to spend the time or effort for a deep relationship, however, it is available for all who truly desire and take the time for it.
