“The OT Jew & the NT Christian – 101” …Blog. [Parallelisms]
*** (Leviticus 10:1-2) And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron; took either of them his censer, and put fire therein; and put incense thereon; and offered strange fire before the LORD; which he commanded them ‘not’.
(Lev 10:2) And there went out fire from the LORD; and ‘devoured’ them; and they died before the LORD.
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do you call Me [Jesus]; Lord, Lord, and do ‘Not’ do what I say?
Is there “Really A Difference”… between the OT Jew & the NT Christian…? When I use the term Christian; it is in a ‘Generic & Cultural’ sense only! There are those who are: ‘Truly’ are Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God! They Love His Holy Word… as much as they “Love Him – Jesus!” But this I speak about those ‘Others’… who are Christian in name ‘Only’ and “Not in Lifestyle Practice!” The “True Student–Disciples of Christ”… are continually growing in His Grace, Mercy & Love & in Obedience to His Holy Word! This blog is not to: ‘accuse nor excuse’ those “Others”… but only to ‘Warn’ them… of the coming “Judgment seat of Christ JESUS’…!
“Give them A ‘Warning’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (2Corinthains 13:5) Keep examining yourselves; to see whether you are continuing in the faith. Test yourselves! You know, do you not; that Jesus Christ lives in you? Could it be that you are failing the test? [1Jn 2:3-to-6]
*** (Romans 8:16) The [Holy] Spirit Himself; testifies with our [human] spirit; that we are God's children. [Luke 6:46 & James 1:22]
*** (1Co 3:11) After all; no one can lay any other foundation than the one that is already laid; and that is Jesus Christ. [Luke 20:17-18]
(1Cor 3:12) Whether a person builds on this foundation; with gold; silver; expensive stones; = wood; hay; or straw,
(1Cor 3:13) the workmanship of each person; will become evident; for the [Last] day will show what it is; because it will be revealed with fire; and the fire will test; the quality of each person's work. [Revelation 20:10-to-15]
(1Cor 3:14) If what a person has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If his work is burned up; he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved; but it will be like going through fire.
(1Cor 3:16) You know that you are God's sanctuary; and that God's Spirit lives in you; don't you?
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you, ‘Except’ a man be born again; he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
The OT Jew was given “God’s Holy Word”… as his only point of reference! And so is the NT Christian! Question: Did they obey His Holy Word… or substitute something else? The Talmud was ‘written & practiced’ by most of the Jews… to ‘Circumvent’ the Scriptures. Christ spoke about this as… “The Tradition of the Elders!” Any student of the OT Scriptures can see the ‘repeating’ circle; of ‘disobedience & punishment’ in what happened to them. The 70 year Babylon captivity was because they; purposely failed to keep their Sabbath. So today, the NT Christian has replaced the Holy Word of GOD… with ‘ditties & pictures’; with religious ‘sayings & yes’: even false pictures of Jesus. You Tube Videos and their messages have Replace… “The Pure Milk of the Holy Word of God!” Church entertainment has “Replaced”… “The True Preaching & Teaching” of the Holy Word of God…! “False Teachers & False Preachers”… are ‘More’ than the “Real Ones”…! [2Peter 2:1-2 & 2Corinthains 11:13-14-15 & Matthew 24:24]
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, You speak with us; and we will hear. But let not God speak with us; lest we die.
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses said to the people; Do not fear; for God has come to test you; and so that His fear may be before your faces; so that you: may ‘Not’ sin.

*** (Mark 7:6-to-9) But He [Jesus] answered and said to them; Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites; as it is written; “This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
(Mar 7:7) However, they worship Me in vain; teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” [Isaiah 29:13]
(Mar 7:8) For laying aside the commandment of God; you hold the tradition of men; the dippings of pots and cups. And ‘many’ other such things you do.
(Mar 7:9) And He [Jesus] said to them; Do you do well to set aside the commandment of God; so that you may keep your [False] own tradition?
*** (1Corinthains 14:26) What, then; does this mean, brothers? When you gather; everyone has [their own personal] a psalm; teaching; revelation; tongue; or interpretation. Everything must be done for edification only.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah; that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = Hearing = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
*** (Judges 21:25) In those days; there was no king in Israel. Every man did the right; in his ‘own’ eyes.

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.
What about the “Christian Families”… who ‘Call’ themselves Christian? Are they a witness of the; “Grace & Mercy & Love & FORGIVENESS”… that God has given to mankind…? Are they in themselves… “A Witness For = Or Against”… the Holy Word of God…? “Hold on to your Seats”…! Half those in the Churches are “Divorced & Remarried”… in direct disobedience to the Holy Word of GOD! What message do their Children have… about the “Forgiveness of Christ Jesus”…? What message do they have about “Biblical Reconciliation” = “2Corinthains 5:18-to-21”…? The Jews were big on “Divorce & Remarriage”… and had two different schools of teaching. But ‘Neither’ was according to the Holy Word of GOD! Needless to say… “Christian Americans”… have surpassed the OT Jew’s practice in this area… to portraying a “False Message of Forgiveness” to the Unsaved…! Yet ask anyone of them… And they will tell You; they Love Jesus? … “NOT!” Truly ‘Loving’ Christ Jesus… is found in one’s… “Obedience to His Holy Word”…!
*** (John 15:10) If you keep My [Jesus’] commandments; you shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments; and abide in His love.
*** (1John 5:2-3) This is how we ‘know’ that we love God's children: we love God and ‘keep’ His commandments. [Word – James 1:22]
(1Jn 5:3) For this is the LOVE of God: that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not difficult,
*** (Matthew 5:31) “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice of divorce.’
(Matt 5:32) But I [Jesus] say to you; any man who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery."
*** (Mark 10:11-12) So He [Jesus] said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman; commits adultery against her.
(Mark 10:12) And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another man; she commits adultery.”
*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin; that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid. How shall we; that are dead to sin; live any longer therein?
*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who covers his sins shall not be blessed; but whoever confesses and ‘leaves’ them; shall have mercy.

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do you call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do Not do - what I say?
What about the “Christians SILENCE”… in this matter of the “Slaughter of the Innocent Unborn Babies”… “Killed in their American Mothers wombs”… “By Abortion?” Over… ‘55,000,000 million’… “Innocent Babies” have been “Killed by Abortion”… and those ‘Followers of JESUS’… “Are Silent”…? What is wrong with that “Picture”…? And Yet… ‘They Falsely Think’… that a new president will heal our nation’s problems…? …“NOT!”
*** (Exodus 20:13) You shall not murder innocent life.
*** (Genesis 9:6) Whoever sheds man's blood; his blood shall be shed by man; for He made man in the image of God.
*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation; but sin is a curse to any people.
*** (Luke 13:3-4-5) I [Jesus] tell you, No. But unless you Repent; you will ‘all’ likewise perish.
(Luke 13:4) Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them; do you think that they were sinners above all men; who lived in Jerusalem?
(Luke 13:5) I [Jesus] tell you, No. But unless you Repent; you will ‘all’ likewise perish.
*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth fruits = worthy of repentance; and do not begin to say within yourselves; We have Abraham for our father. For I say to you that God is able: to raise up children to Abraham: from these stones.

*** (Amos 4:10) I [God] have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: = your young men have I slain with the sword, = and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto Me, says the LORD.
OT Israel, God’s Chosen People… ‘Repented’ after the Captivity… but soon ‘Returned’ to their ‘Evil Ways!’ Yet the “NT American Christian” falsely thinks that Revival: will somehow ‘Magically’ take place here in America! …“NOT!” God spared ‘Not’… “Sodom & Gomorrah”… and our national wickedness is “Much Worse!” Americans spend ‘OVER’… “Four Trillion Dollars” annually on “Illegal drugs & Marijuana”. We “Export Pornography”… to ‘Other Nations!’ Our Abortion technology is first… as an export to the Word! And ‘You’ falsely think… “God Bless America, the land that I love”…? Please tell me… “How or Why”… should God Bless America…? …. “Please tell Me”…?
*** (Numbers 32:23) But if you will not do so, behold; you have sinned against the LORD Jehovah. And be sure your sin will find you out.
*** (1Peter 4:17-18) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us; what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
*** (Luke 17:21) Neither shall they say; Lo here! or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. [Romans 8:9]
