Forget Solomon as an authority on eternal salvation and all the prophets as having the last word on the operation of God’s kingdom. As long as Christians keep piling up memes and slogans from ancient sources and neglect the root and ground of reality the world will keep getting a picture. If Solomon could have ignored the prevalent and primary tenet of life to which his people subscribed let no one put it beyond a Christian or American evanvelical to respectively speak and act as if the Cross and Resurrection and the declaration of independence and constitution never happened. In the face of all the bizarre things that are being said and done among Christians and by Americans it would appear that like Satan, running out of time, he is angry and is willing to destroy as much as possible of what people call precious faith.
Bizarre for Christ to lose a patient
Thankfully the procedures and outcomes of salvation are not stated in terms of a doctor patient relationships. If they were we would be able to see that Christ loses a patient, or more to the facts of the matter that he never loses a patient. Since salvation is concerned with life and death we are not ever in a position to say that someone to whom he gave life has died, or that someone whom he found was lost.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.John 10:27-29, NASB
Wanna keep going back to elementary school?
Islam, for example, tells the story of God as if Israel never happened or is irrelevant.
“But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?” (Galatians 4:9, NASB)
The weak ( ptocha, πτωχα, impoverishing ) and elementary conventions of the world…listed in what follows
10) You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11) I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain.Galatians 4:10-11
If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as, “Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!” (which all refer to things destined to perish with use)–in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.Colossians 2:20-23, NASB
All the talk about commandments, revival of the levitical kingdon, and festival observance amounts to a counterfeit, like Bizarro, the Superman with an evil heart.
Word of God and language
Which part of new do we not understand when the scripture says New Creation?
The “people” in legislation is like “language” in documents. One ignores either at great risk and often to one’s demise. Christian leaders are not at liberty to follow personal feelings, individual ideas, or temporal needs when the meaning of scripture is at stake. Even when they call themselves law-abiding or persons of law and order the outcomes of their speeches are usually criminal. The cross can never be irrelevant and law will only be set aside when the privileged feel aggrieved. The study of words cannot be replaced by miracles and temporal success. We do not know how much time passed from Lucifer’s first rebellious thoughts to his forceful expulsion from heaven, but we know that the time it takes to become a person with the law inside is a few months. Neglected language study is like wanting to overthrow God, and those who will be the enemies of the church are the people who ignored the call to sell everything for the kingdom’s sake and refused to become as children, by grasping the benefit of learning a new language. The counterfeit Christian, the counterfeit superman, the unwise sage, the illiterate scholar, are all about to be exposed and the prospect is extreme anger fueled by the devil
