Being free,not having guilt all the time but living free in Christ
Made Alive in Christ
by Chaplain Jimmie Warren
The Bible says “Many will come in my name but, do not listen for they are keepers of the law (the law of death) and are blinded by the “Vail of Moses” and will try to drag you back into bondage of the slave women Hager and her children . See later in this article about the Bond women and the free women . We who are in Christ Jesus are of the children of Abraham and walk by faith in the Lord. Jesus /Yeshua is our all in all, as you will read here a little later. We are told to walk after Yeshua Messiah for HE is the only one who could keep the law and who was perfect. Yeshua Messiah/ Jesus came to fulfill all the law and set us free from death.
Please follow alone with your own Bibles and read it yourself, the truth ,will amaze you!
Once you read the freedom from the law do not let men talk you into coming to their church and pay tithes to make their little corner of the world grow, for they will wither on the vine.
Apostle Paul has to say: “You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. I have confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselve.”(Gal 5:7-12)
see even Apostle Paul was warning those going back to the Jewish Law..
YOU ARE SET FREE IN CHRIST JESUS
I was once in a all true church who kept the laws of Moses with Holy Days and 1st and 2nd and even 3rd tithes that church and many like it are now dead. Many under the New Testament are alive and growing away from the main stream churches of our forefathers.”
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. (The Law Moses was given was the yoke of the Jews.)
“Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law. You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love. For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
This is the greatest commandment Jesus gave to his followers, this is the whole of the LAW...HAVE A HUMBLE ATTITUDE IN YOURSELF!
“Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.( Philippians 2:5-11)
Some of those who are law keepers, could be the ones who will kill you “thinking they are doing God a service!
“ But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” (GAL. 5:2-6;13-26)
Those who need a physical laws walk with guilt about everything. By keeping laws and Holy Days, they try to show their religion, and not walking in their faith!
"Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised(keeping the law), simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. For those who are circumcised do not even keep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh. But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God. From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen." (Gal 6:11-18)
Read my article “LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU”
Bond or Free
“Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not listen to the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the bondwoman and one by the free woman. But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and the son by the free woman through the promise. This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar. Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother. For it is written, "REJOICE , BARREN WOMAN WHO DOES NOT BEAR; BREAK FORTH AND SHOUT, YOU WHO ARE NOT IN LABOR; FOR MORE NUMEROUS ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE DESOLATE THAN OF THE ONE WHO HAS A HUSBAND." And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise. But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also. But what does the Scripture say? "CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON, FOR THE SON OF THE BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE AN HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREE WOMAN." So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman. (Gal 4 :21-31)
“For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if those who are of the Law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise is nullified; for the Law brings about wrath, but where there is no law, there also is no violation. (Romans 4: 13-15)
Brethren, my heart's desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation. For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge. For not knowing about God's righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God. For Chris is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
“ For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is based on law shall live by that righteousness. But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows: "DO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, `WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?' (that is, to bring Christ down), or `WHO WILL DESCEND INTO THE ABYSS ?' (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead)." But what does it say? "THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART"--that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED ."For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."( Romans 10: 5 -13)
“Baptized by Fire”
When we come up out of the water of being baptized in the name of the Father and Son ,we are given the Holy Spirit, “Baptized by Fire” as John the Baptist said of the one who came after him.(Jesus) “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us ,even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Repenting is not just saying “I AM SORRY” it is showing you are different and the only way you will ever change is by reading the Bible a little every day. To stay close to God we need to study his word (the bible) everyday.
"Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called "Uncircumcision" by the so-called "Circumcision," which is performed in the flesh by human hands-- remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
When you got baptized, did you do IT because you wanted to be in Gods kingdom or where you just doing it under pressure from the minister of your church and everyone else was doing it?
You need to decide if you did it for the right reasons? If not find a church who uses the Bible, and get baptized again, only this time for real!
AND HE CAME AND PREACHED PEACE TO YOU WHO WERE FAR AWAY, AND PEACE TO THOSE WHO WERE NEAR ; for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit. “( Ephesians 2:1 -22 )
Better Things for You.
“But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. For when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, "I WILL SURELY BLESS YOU AND I WILL SURELY MULTIPLY YOU." And so, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise. For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:9-20)
“For, on the one hand, there is a setting aside of a former commandment because of its weakness and uselessness ( Law made nothing perfect), and on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. And inasmuch as it was not without an oath (for they indeed became priests without an oath, but He with an oath through the One who said to Him, "THE LORD HAS SWORN AND WILL NOT CHANGE HIS MIND, `YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER "); so much the more also Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.” (Hebrews 7:18-23)
“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8: 1- 4 )
Yes beloved we are free in Christ Jesus / Yeshua
“ For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen”. (Eph 3:14-21)
Those who we call unbelievers are not outside the church but those who,because of their carnal nature are spiritually underdeveloped they need proper sets of beliefs,or a hierarchy of priest or ministers. Many do not have a spiritual connection with God because of their carnal thinking with which they start judging constantly. See they themselves cannot keep the laws preached to them so they judge you for braking a few.They just do not get the spiritual side of God. Each person are at different levels of spiritual growth with, fixed creeds and dogma, which is a detriment of a truly spiritual religion
It is all about the spirit of God, even the Church of God is spiritual because each person is at different stages in their lives with different teachings and trainings.The Church of God is like being in school,remember back to your school days,we where not all in the same grade,the higher up we went, the more we learned. Each of us with our different back grounds of hurts, and pains, have learned different lessons from God, or about God himself, or our calling?
When we where baptized we got the Holy Spirit from God inside our souls, some bloomed ,while others just soaked up the spirit. Some did nothing, except go to a church building ever weekend and sang songs for 10,15,20 even 30 years before their spirit woke up to do the Job God had called them to do. I hope some of you are waking up now to see the truth which was reviled to me. I try to share this truth to those who have eyes to see it and pray for those who just have not gotten there yet!
I was one of the late bloomers myself, It took my hard head, and stiff neck, over 20 years to wake up to the truth. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the freedom and wonderful life in Christ Jesus. I believed the milk and the religion being taught but, didn't do anything to grow spiritually. Then like someone turning on a light switch my mind was pulled to Ephesians,Colossians,Galations.These three books of the Bible with the last eight chapters of Romans shows we don't have to live under the law because it is in our hearts and minds see we have graduated to a higher grade which just means new truths are reviled to our spiritual minds. Paul said it to the Corinth church" I would teach you many things but you just want the milk of the word. You know what the MILK is don't you? It is that Christ came and was crucified and rose 3 days later and went up to sit at the right hand of God and will return to set up God's kingdom.(paraphrased by me)
Our Christian doctrines are easy to confirm you see Jesus never ordained a class of disciples whose job was to preform rituals and prayers on behalf of the flock. Jesus- Yeshua Messiah taught the spirit of the law or pure religion,yes he keep the law because he was a Jew and was the Only One to fulfill it completlly.He told his disciples to go forth and proclaim to all that if they would just change their ways and walk in the Way,they could enter the Kingdom of God when their life was over here on earth.These disciples, later apostles, where not to teach as our authorities,or ministers of today do but, rather lead the people to the One Teacher "Yeshua" who is the only Source of knowledge directly from our Father God!
Give all praise therefore to Yeshua Messiah/Jesus Christ for there is no other way into the Kingdom of God except through the Only Begotten SON of God –Jesus our Lord!
Thank you for your time and I hope and pray you received some truth here to satisfy your spirit ? Yahweh our God loves you all and is waiting to teach you more, just open your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit,t to open your mind to more truth. May He bless you with new truth.
In closing “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.(Romans 8:38-39)
