Sabbath 13/4/42/120

Dear Friends,

This Sabbath we go on with the examination of the Covenant of God (No. 152).  he next paper in the sequence of the declaration of the Covenant is the paper First and Second Statements of the Covenant of God (No. 096B). The set out of the Law of God as the Covenant is examined in the paper Distinction in the Law (No. 096).  

It has been put out that the Law of God has been done away by the NT Church.  Even the name implies that the OT has been done away and the Law of God has been made redundant. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The current doctrine of Protestantism is that the law has been done away.  This false doctrine is examined in the paper Antinomian Destruction of Christianity by Misuse of Scripture (No. 164C). An examination of paper No. 096 above will show that it was never envisaged that the Law of God was done away by any of the Protestant Confessions of the Faith.  Only the sacrificial law was deemed fulfilled in Christ.  This false doctrine will soon be attacked and destroyed over the next seven years.

So also Islam will be shown absolutely that the Koran ties the Covenant to the Sabbaths of God (S. 4:154; cf. Surah 4 (Q004)).

The fact that apostate 21st Century pseudo-Christianity and pseudo-Islam demand that the law is done away and that anyone who advocates the law is still valid and must be kept is a Non-Christian or a Jew is simply a matter of their apostasy and a reminder that they will come under punishment under the Witnesses and the Messiah.

Even the Churches of God in the 20th and 21st centuries are destroyed by their Ditheism (No. 076B) and the Hillel Calendar (cf. Hillel, Babylonian Intercalations and the Temple Calendar (No. 195C)).  Their apostasy in Polytheism makes them ineligible to keep the Temple or God’s Calendar (No. 156) and for that reason they are removed from the First Resurrection (No. 143A) and sent to the Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B). The reasons are explained in the paper Connection re the Nature of God and the Temple Calendar (No. 156E). Also their ministers are punished because they teach that the law is diminished and that they do not have to keep the New Moons and the Sabbaths and Jubilees. They have never kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread, even on the wrong days, since 1965.

God is not a horse trader.  There is no negotiation with Him regarding the Law.  If we wish to be in the First Resurrection then we have to keep the Laws of God (L1) and realise there is only One True God the Father and that He sent Jesus Christ and that eternal life rests on knowing them (Jn 17:3). God created the entire elohim as sons of God, including Christ (Job 1:6; 2:1 and 38:4-7), and that is why Armstrong and the entire offshoots of his system are in the Second Resurrection with the other pseudo-Christians unless they repent.

Encourage all of them to repent and come out of these false systems.
