Walking With Christ

For the final thought of this first volume, I want to express again the importance of keeping the Ten Commandments. All through this study we have learned that it was Jesus who gave it. It was Jesus who wrote it with His own finger. It was Jesus who came and lived it showing that we can keep it in His power. It was Jesus who stated that if we love Him we would obey His Ten Commandments.

We have studied that sin is the breaking of the Ten Commandments. No sinner will go to heaven. Only those sinners who have put off sin by the power of Christ and are living His righteous, Ten Commandment-keeping life will enter heaven.

We have learned that it is the devil’s most important work to get you to sin. If he can get you to break just one of the Ten Commandments, you are lost. That is why he has worked so hard to get the worldly churches to accept his 1st day Sunday as Sabbath.

The following texts will take you through the Bible in an effort to show the importance of keeping God’s Ten Commandments. God bless you in your continued study of God’s word.

Remember Malachi 4:4 of the Old Testament? Notice, this is the last command in the last book of the Old Testament. It is a command to “Remember” the Ten Commandments as we go into the New Testament. “If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law, even his prayers are detestable.” Proverbs 28:9.

Looking ahead.

 

 

 

 

 

But Biblically, that is the wrong concept. Jesus taught that we Achiving your goal can attain perfection now, through His indwelling Power. Therefore, it would look like this:

What does "Perfect" mean?  Don't let anyone lie to you.  This is the Strong's Concordance definition of "Perfect".  "Without blemish, perfect, upright, without spot, uprightly, whole, sincerely, complete, full, entire, sound, entirely in accord with truth and fact, wanting nothing necessary to completeness, mature."

 

A simple way to test those who think they are of God

1)  2 John 8 – Watch out that you are not deceived.

2)  2 John 9 - We must continue in the teaching of Jesus.

3)  2 John 10,11 – Have nothing to do with those who claim to be Christian, but do not believe the teachings of Jesus.

4)  Matthew 28:20 – Our only duty is to teach what Jesus taught: What Jesus taught in both Old and New Testament

5)  John 8:31,32 – True disciples are those who hold to the teachings of Jesus. Anyone who does not hold to the teachings of Jesus is not a true disciple.

The Teachings of Jesus: (The Gospel As Jesus Taught It)
1)   Matthew 5:48 – Be Perfect: As Perfect as your Heavenly Father.
2)   John 5:14; 8:11 – Stop sinning. Go and sin no more.
3)   Matthew 19:16,17 – If you want to enter heaven, you must obey the Ten Commandments, including the 7th day Sabbath

Now, let me share with you what a major denominational paper wrote about these teachings of Jesus:

"The writer then gives his own definition: The gospel 'is the "good news."' And the good news 'has always been and will always be that if you keep the Ten Commandments and are obedient to God, you will have eternal life." Farther down the page comes this startling elaboration: The gospel 'is what Jesus taught: Be perfect . . ., stop sinning . . . , and keep the Ten Commandments in order to earn your eternal life. . . . That is the good news.'"

"It's downright frightening to think that there might be . . . school teachers and local elders and even some pastors propagating such ideas in our churches today."

How far they have fallen from the simple truths of Jesus. They no longer believe what Jesus has spoken very plainly. They have made it "downright frightening" to believe in the teachings of Jesus. God will destroy this sinful world and all who have rejected His simple Gospel.
