Thoughts on the validity of God's Word

Although Jesus Christ in Matthew 5:17-20 said the following: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven."

How arrogant and conceited, but the modern human is become, if he imagines actually, that a creature can command his Creator, what up to date is and what not! In the Bible we read more than once that everything, what is written in the word of god, have eternal validity.

God has given His creatures; clear and simple guidelines on how they should lead their lives in order to gain salvation. He also gave to the human free will to choose either for or against him. Those who choose God, has to do nothing else, than to keep his commandments. This also applies things, of which is claiming now, from the people, that they did not up to date anymore! Just as the Sabbath, the feasts of the Lord, women be silent in the temple, clothing at church, food intake, etc.! These things, for God are always be valid. But God does not force anyone, to keep his commandments. He will not let that those go unpunished; which teaching different doctrines, as in the Bible is written. By the heresies of modern scribes and Pharisees (theologians and preachers), many people is blocked the way of salvation.

We should be aware that each, who instead of the God of the Bible, worships a God invented by people, commits idolatry. So also commits everyone idolatry who celebrates the invented feasts by people; and not the feasts of the Lord.

The true church of Jesus Christ has become very small; as a Roman Emperor invented a Christian state religion. Since that time the prophets of Christ become persecuted vehemently; and also with force brought silenced. That has not changed to this day. The difference to antiquity is, that the prophets today no longer killed, but be declared unsound mind.

But Jesus Christ has told us, that everyone who proclaimed the gospel in his name, will tracked. He spoke in Luke 21:12-19: "But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. This will result in your being witnesses to them. But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. All men will hate you because of me. But not a hair of your head will perish. By standing firm you will gain life."

Solely on the basis of this statement, one can already see who is a true prophet of Christ. But you should check each belonged word, using the Bible. As far as I know, none of the modern Christian preachers, must be afraid, that him even just one of this Things happens which Jesus announced in Luke 21:12-19.

For a change, I do not want to end my contribution with a psalm today. Instead, with the Epistle to Laodicea. In fact I believe, that most of those who today call themselves Christian, would receive exactly this message of Jesus Christ. But that is not as a reproach, but that you rather to ponder about the word of God. Because I know, that no one is without sin and no one is infallible.

And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the origin of God’s creation: “I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth. For you say, ‘I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing.’ You do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen; and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent. Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me. To the one who conquers I will give a place with me on my throne, just as myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.” Amen (Revelation 3, 14 – 22)
