LAW, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 7/5/19
Much in my e-mail in the last week centered in the conflict between LAW and GRACE, some for it (LAW) and some not. It is very interesting for me that GOD spent about 2,000 years in collecting a people together to allow them to show that the LAW does not work. Today we raise the call that we are a nation of LAW. And yet no one can really pin point what the law really is. The original approach of GOD was to have prophets who would be sensitive to HIM and tell the people what to do. But they wanted a King and the law like the other nations. You see, if you know the law really well you can always figure out a way to circumvent it and be the exception yourself. So the BIG TEN ended up in not guiding the people but in the people making further laws to make the BIG TEN void. That is just part of the Adamic nature of pride and rebellion and wanting to be a king in one’s own little ivory palace. And the subordinates of those on top are then only looking for the opportunity to replace those on top. So to be the Top Gun and to have the most freedom is an illusion or a lie. As the more authority and control and stuff that you have, the more energy you must use to maintain it. So then we become God’s chosen, frozen, dedicated to the preservation of the stuff.
So GOD allowed this lie to continue until the appointed time for Christ Jesus to come and restore man to GOD’s TRUTH. That is, if he wants it.
Christ Jesus and HIS Apostles brought us a New Testament, a new WILL that basically pronounced that the letter of the LAW, KILLS. It is the Spirit that gives life. So now we have the opportunity to learn to walk in the Spirit of God in Love, Humility, Faith and Obedience towards GOD as originally intended. That we no longer need to be concerned about the stuff but simple about pleasing GOD and getting to know HIM and learn to hear HIS voice. So life consists not in the abundance of things that we possess but by every WORD that proceeds from the mouth of GOD. And if we really want life we should spend time in the Word of God to lean HIS ways. We should be in faith preparing for a loving orderly eternity as earthly life is very short and you can only take with us what we send ahead.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org

GREAT QUOTES on “PHARISEES”
"Pharisaism is a poisonous weed that grows in every garden of orthodox religion. Pharisaism is every bit the threat to the orthodox today that it was then." - J.D. Greear "Sometimes we emulate the Pharisees more than we imitate Christ." -R. C. Sproul "If God cared only about religious activities, then the Pharisees would have been heroes of the faith." -Francis Chan "Legalism is a subtle danger because no one thinks of himself as a legalist." - Philip Yancey "The law repels, the gospel attracts. The law shows the distance which there is between God and man; the gospel bridges that awful chasm, and brings the sinner across it." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon "Primary enemy of the Gospel-legalism... People avoid the gospel and try to save themselves by keeping the rules, doing what they´re told, maintaining the standards, and so on (you could call this "front-door legalism")." - Tullian Tchividjian "A pharisee is hard on others and easy on himself, but a spiritual man is easy on others and hard on himself." -Aiden Wilson Tozer
