All Pass Away

So you want to talk about eternal law and commandments in the heavens. Well let’s. Start with the fact that Jesus said so little about the law that people began to think that he was ending the law, and he was. But not as a smasher of the past. He is most certainly the new and exclusive Speaker. One would have to be still blind, still under the power of darkness, or plain dead to build on the sand of carnal ordinances and tribal customs, to not see that if salvation pricesses are like a relay, then Yeshua has the baton.

Let me first admit that using analogies such as passing the baton/torch, temple processes, or whatever metaphor we choose are usually inadequate to express the truth about Christ. So let it be equally clear that none of the people who preceded Christ in the realm of giving God’s message have passed anything to him, and he is not completing anything that they started. In this particular regard baton-passing fails. Christ has brought into human stream of life something unprecedented and incomparable.

Four terminals help me leap over the snare of hypocrisy.

  1. John the Baptist. End of the law and prophets (priest and king too). Cheap talk
  2. The death of Christ. Ascension and session. Priceless walk
  3. The will of God was done. He gave his life and took it back
  4. The end of the age. Heaven and earth pass away with all those words.

The end of the old is not the start of old.2

When our Lord said all will be fulfilled when heaven and earth pass away we know they all do. Pass away: heavens, earth, Law.

Righteousness is either faked or genuine. One is either doing a Pharisee job or enjoying Yeshua’s cake and wine.

Today is not too late to decide to to stop inventing righteousness and accept God’s.

The Passing of Royal Asses and Bad Dudes

Kings whose passing (maybe only the torch) passes like every Sunday morning are in the majority and they are obviously on the road to destruction list. Most Sunday mornings are distinguished by photo ops and glib soundbytes. Megalomaniacs, dictators, homicidal democrats, lawyers. and spineless business persons are the spread of our choices these days for rulers. That we are deceived by the glitter and the pomp of modern governments and even philanthropic organizations – most of which are rotten to the core – is evidence that the best set of laws and the best location turn out trashy leaders who are worthy of note as Very Bad Dudes who wiped with the flag and turned the joyful song into a war jingle. The flag flutters over a gruesome graveyard. It is not surprising that oppressors think that standing up for the anthem of a country that was this poorly led is something noble.

Like king like people! A history lesson is in order.

King Saul👎 Begging for death.

1 Samuel 31:4. Then said Saul unto his armourbearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armourbearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took a sword, and fell upon it.

King David✔
King Solomon the wise👎, in his old age, lost it.

1 Kings 11:4. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.

King Rehoboam.👎 A child of a forbidden marriage.

1 Kings 14:31. And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess. And Abijam his son reigned in his stead.

King Abijam.👎 Bad dude.

1 Kings 15:3-4. And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father. Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:

Asa✔
Jehoshaphat✔👎
Jehoram👎
Ahaziah👎
Joash/Jehoash✔👎

Amaziah👎✔
Azariah/Uzziah👎✔

Jotham👎✔
Ahaz👎

Hezekiah✔

2 Kings 18:3-7.And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did. He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. He trusted in the Lord God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him. For he clave to the Lord, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses. And the Lord was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

Manasseh👎. Bad dude. 2 Kings 21:2-6
And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. And he built altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.

Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the Lord. 2 Kings 21:16
A very bad dude!

Amon👎
Josiah ✔
Jehoahaz👎
Jehoiakim👎

Would you stand up for the anthem of a country that was this poorly led? The Zionists named their country after a kingdom that did not have a single good king. The United States of who and under what god? Do we stand for Israel’s Constitution? Bad Dudes, royal or otherwise, do not find any redemption in the Bible; they will find it in Christ.

What is your claim to fame?

What is your claim to fame? Fame is in our lifespan but it eludes us when we try to make our profile based on our performance. Let’s use Abraham as the template for a person who got up and left and became famous. Where exactly does our fame come from? I hope we are willing to admit whether or not we have left everything to follow the Lord?
The things you commit and omit?
Those shall-nots are not promises.
They are a witness against your rebellion and uncircumcision.

It is a good thing that we have the record of 2 souls out of .6 million believing. The rest thought that Moses and Yahweh were full of it.

How probable is it that one’s food and drink… (Hebrews 9:10) are kingdom business Romans 14:17? How much evidence do we need that our tables are covered with regurgitated and excreted matter Isaiah 28:8

True church?
Chosen race?
Head not tail? Higher than all?

Worse than farm animals?
Unabashed wanton prostitute?

The cross is the final verdict against unbelief; God reveals his righteousness apart from the law.

Family matters?
Why demoralize our children and delude ourselves with a obedient life then claim that salvation is that same obedience?
