A closer look, however,
exposes these critics as law-breakers.
Bill is a
law-keeper. He dies, and in the Judgement, God says to Bill: "Bill,
you are a very naughty Bill. You have kept my Holy Law — the one I gave to
Abraham and re-gave to Moses on the Mountain... You have kept the law that all
My holy men have kept down through the ages... You naughty man! You have also
kept my truths that King David and all the prophets kept. Because of this, I am
going to send you to hell so as you can learn the truth that My law is not to be
kept — but is to be broken! Who do you think you are, Bill? What possessed you
to keep My laws and commandments? Away with you, you who did not steal, who did
not lie, who did not commit adultery, who did not murder, who did not covet, who
did not move his neighbour’s landmark, who covered the pit he dug, who loved his
neighbour as himself, who paid all his debts, who indeed did all things that are
righteous in my law... To hell with you, you obedient
And to Bob, who did not keep
God’s law, can we realistically entertain this scenario? "Ah, Bob, my dear
law-breaker, your faith has saved you. You’ve broken nearly every rule I ever
gave you, my beloved Bob. The sound of breaking laws is like music to my ears.
Oh, great law snapper, up to Heaven you come to be with Me! Oh Bob, how much
more full of faith you are than poor Bill. He tried to show me his faith by his
works — but you, oh My faithful Bobby Wobby, you showed me your faith by
breaking My entire law of righteousness. Enter into the glory of your
Of course the above
scenarios are quite ridiculous, but they serve to point out how baseless the
argument is that the keeping of God’s law is a bad thing.
The reason is simple.
Just as the next 100 years will be influenced by those who promoted ungodly
feminism in the previous 100 years, so also the teaching of false prophets of
the past haunts us all today. There is a plan being worked out here below that
is designed to separate those who will not forsake the holy ways of God from
those who are deceived by ‘retail Christianity’.
What do you think the
Lawless One is teaching?
Go on, have a guess...
Don’t be shy...
Alright, I’ll give you a
clue. It begins with... L-A-W-L-E-S-S-N-E...
That’s right! LAWLESSNESS!
Perhaps I should not be
so facetious, but I have tried so hard over the years to alert seekers of truth
to this fact, with limited success. I thought I would try spelling out this
great deception in the clearest possible way.
I have never met
anyone who has tried to "get to heaven by their works." I have, however,
met many who try to get there without them.
Undoubtedly law and
faith come together if the perfect love of our Creator is in the heart of the
One must surely ask the
obvious at this time. Is God still after a Holy People or not? If He
isn’t — then our faith is in vain — there is no hope, because God has already
received His people.
On the other hand, if
God is still after a people, then surely the same criteria remains by which He
shall choose them.
Does this mean that Bill
is safe? Well, yes, if Bill observes and keeps the ways of God humbly,
with a right attitude, walking as Christ walked, loving the brotherhood, and
being quick to extend the hand of truth to one who seeks it.
The real naughty ones
are those who, knowing that the law of God is holy, just and good, do not
keep it faithfully, but sin — transgressing the very law by which they will be
