IT’S NOT ABOUT US

IT’S NOT ABOUT US

First of all serving the Almighty is not about us, it is not what we can gain from it or anything else, but it is all about the Almighty. We are nothing without Him and all deserve to die, and if we disobey Him and do thing our own way, then we WILL die

So who am I going to want to follow, the Almighty or mere mortal men?

Unfortunately Christianity has become a man based religion, preaching sweet words into the people’s ears. For what? So that the church can grow and make bigger financial profit.

 A good illustration of this is: everyone will agree that there is only ONE original scripture written (inspired), but there are so many different translations that differ considerably from each other.

Also people want to serve in there own way. That is why there are so many different church denominations that all call themselves Christian, but differ in there teachings.

Ever heard someone say that they go to a specific church because that church suites them the best (suites their lifestyle)? They don’t go to the other churches because they don’t like what they hear? Should we not change ourselves and our lifestyle to fall in line with what the Scriptures teach us?

Christianity has become all about me and how I can prosper and do the things that I want to do…etc    where is there space for the Almighty there????

"And do not call yourself Father, for your Father is one who is in heaven. And you should not be called leaders, because one is your leader, the Messiah" (Matthew 23:9-1)

The church obviously ignores this passage.

So, now we have to make the decision, am I going to follow man who calls himself a leader or the Almighty in heaven?

If you choose the Almighty and everlasting life, then read on. Otherwise you can close this page now.

 Lets look at some misconceptions:
First of all, there is no such thing as a ‘new testament’ or an ‘old testament’, that change has been added by a man.

Secondly, nothing of the ‘old testament’ has been done away with. Many Christians say that it has been done away with and we don’t have to obey it anymore, then they quote Matthew 5:17 and say that the law has been fulfilled, and that it means we don’t have to obey it anymore.

But what does fulfill mean?

Lets read that passage together:
Matthew 5:17 (KJV) Think not that I am come to destroy the law (oh, so the law has not been destroyed), or the prophets (the profits either): I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (‘fulfill’ means to carry out or to bring to realization, to perform or do, as in a person’s duty.)

Wow… that definitely does not mean ‘done away with’ but actually means to do, to obey etc.

Lets read the next couple of verses too.

Mat 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Even a 10 year old can see by reading the scripture, the words of the Messiah Himself, and not listening to the theologians (leaders), that the law has not fallen away.

In fact, the Messiah is the Torah in the flesh. John 1:1-2 tells us this.
The Messiah died without sin because he kept the whole Torah. He lived a life that we should imitate. So if the Messiah kept the Torah (and it is written, He is the same yesterday, today and forever) why then has it changed that we don’t have to follow the Torah any more?

If we can look at it now, we can see that the church is at error. One example is that the church does not keep the 10 commandments (not called the 10 suggestions, for a reason.)
For example… the 4th commandment is:

"Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. 9. six days you labour, and do all your work, 10. but the seventh day is a Sabbath of ‘the Almighty’ your Elohim (Mighty One). You do not do any work - you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11. For in six days ‘the Almighty’ made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore ‘the Almighty’ blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart" (Exodus 20:8-11)

Does the church keep the Sabbath…. NO
They have changed the set apart day to the first day, or Sun-day. (Please tell me by who’s authority have they done this?)

This is just a simple example, there are so many (almost everything), that the church is in error with.

So, are you still going to want to follow the Almighty into everlasting life, even though by doing so is going to get you ridiculed and even thrown out? Or is it just easier to go with the flow and follow after the beast, into distruction?

The Father is very strict that we should obey Him. If we choose to follow Him, then we should do it the way He commanded us to, not how we think we should.
He gave us the Torah as instruction on how to follow him. In fact, 75% of the ‘new testament’ is quoting the Torah.

People have been struck dead immediately before by disobeying the Almighty.
One example of this is in 2 Sam 6:6-7

Should we be like the Jews and follow Torah?
Well, the Jews (although they are part of the Almighty’s nation) do follow Torah, but most of them also follow the Talmud, which is also know as ‘the oral law’ which is also a bunch of man made (Rabbi) rules that are not Scriptural. Most Jews also do not accept the Messiah.

We should not be like any people but follow the Scripture and the true original scripture alone.
That does mean that we are going to have to learn more about the Hebrew culture and possibly even learn the Hebrew language to a certain degree too. As the scripture was written in the Hebrew language by Hebrews to Hebrews. There are many things in the Hebrew Scriptures that cannot be found in the English bibles.

And yes… we are called to obey the whole Torah as it is written!!
Unless you can show me where it says that we don’t have to anymore.

There is so much more that can be written, and I am not a very good typist.
If you have any questions, email me and I will try get back to you.
I am not claiming that I have all the answers, but will look and see if I can find what the scripture says. As you should not listen to me or anyone else but the Scriptures.


Please also if you find error with what is written here, please let me know at djb206@gmail.com

Kind regards.
