God's Truth Not Smooth Words

God’s Answers to Four Questions

God’s Answers to Four Questions

AKJV paraphrased scriptures

 

 

1.  What did God say about changes in His requirements? Ecclesiastes 3:14-20; Deuteronomy 8:6,11

 

What God does is forever. Nothing can be added to or anything taken from it. God does what He does so people will know Him as well as fear and respect His infinite power over earth, the heavens and all that are in and beneath them— His creation. What He established in the beginning is required now, and that which will be in the future was required also in the past.

 

Evil and sin entered into the Lord’s house of judgment and righteousness. Thus, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every purpose and every work. God tests humans so they might learn that they are vain and no better than animals. All are made of dust and shall return to dust again.

 

Obey His Twelve Laws, precepts, statutes and judgments. Behave in faith, total obedience and respect His authority. Fear forgetting the Lord by not keeping His law, judgments and statutes; which you were told from the beginning.

2.  What did Jesus and the Apostles say about changes in God’s requirements? Matthew 5:17-20; I John 2:7; Acts 21:24,16; Romans 2:13,15; 3;31; 1:25,30,31; Titus 1:16; James 2:24; Revelation 14:12; 22:14

 

Jesus said, “Do not think I came to destroy the law. Not one dotting of an I nor crossing of a T shall be taken from or added to God’s law until heaven and earth pass away and all prophecy is fulfilled. Whoever breaks one of the Father’s laws and teaches others the same, he shall perish. But whoever obeys the laws and teaches others to obey, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Unless obedience exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter heaven.”

 

John said, “I give the old commandment which was from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.”

 

Paul said, “Exemplify Jesus by behaving orderly and obeying the Lord’s Law. Work at having a clear conscience toward God and men. For the hearers of the law are not just before God. But, the doers of the law shall be vindicated. Their behavior demonstrates the law written in their hearts and their conscience will not allow them to disobey. They live the Lord’s unchanged law.

 

False preachers and prophets twist God’s truths into lies, teaching doctrines and traditions that worship and serve the creature more than God. They are covenant-breakers, haters of God, professing to know God but their works deny Him in disobedience. We of the Lord are not like these who defile God’s Word. For we walk by faith, not by sight, and work hard at obeying His laws so God will accept us. We are defended by works and faith. One without the other is death.”

 

John said, “Those who do as Christ did are the ones who obey the commandments of God and possess the unshakable faith of Jesus, even in the face of death. Blessed are they who do God commandments, for they will have right to the tree of life and may enter the gates into the holy city in the new earth.”

3.  In ancient times what did the Lord warn of and what is He today still saying to the world? Jeremiah 22:29; 23:1,11,14

 

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord. Woe to the pastors who destroy and scatter my sheep, for both prophets and priests are vile. Yes, in my house I have found their wickedness. They commit adultery and walk in lies. They strengthen evildoers, causing them not to return to me. They are to me like the wicked of Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

“Do not listen to their teachings, for they make you vain. They speak from their own heart and not with the mouth of the Lord. They lie when they say you shall have peace in the world and that no evil shall come upon you.

 

“Listen well, a whirlwind of the Lord’s fury will come upon the earth and it shall fall upon the wicked. The Lord shall execute His vengeance and in the latter days you will understand perfectly why He pours out His wrath. For you have perverted the words of the living God and twisted the truth of the Lord of hosts our God.”

4.  What will happen and who will remain after Christ returns for His small flocks, and why are they left behind? Matthew 24:27; Luke 17:24; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 16:17-18,20-21; Jeremiah 25:32-33; Matthew 24:28; Luke 17:37; Jeremiah 32:23

 

As the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so shall Christ return in the clouds on the day appointed by the Father. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God sounding as a great voice out of the temple of heaven saying, “It is done!” and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which still are alive shall be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And, we always will be with the Lord from that day forward.

 

As Christ moves across the skies taking up His sheep, in His wake the seventh plague will be poured out. There will voices, thunders, lightnings and an earthquake such as the world has never seen. Every island will disappear and mountains will shatter into rubble. A great hail out of heaven,, each stone about 100 pounds, shall fall upon the wicked left behind.

 

A great whirlwind shall rise up from the coasts of the earth and on that the slain of the Lord shall lay dead from one end of the earth to the other end. They shall not be grieved for nor gathered up or buried. They will be like dung upon the ground. Wherever their bodies lie, there will the buzzards gather for a feast: because the wicked did not hear the Lord’s voice nor obey His laws. They did nothing that the Lord commanded them to do; therefore, this evil will come upon them in one hour the old earth’s last day.
