The Daily Word of Righteousness

Detracting From His Majesty?, continued

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? (Luke 6:46)

To say there is no commandment other than that we love one another is the same as claiming we have no need of ministries or gifts because love is a more excellent way. In order to get to perfect love you have to have the ministries and gifts. Isn't that a fact?

There are numerous laws, principles, and commandments listed from Matthew through to Revelation. To say that if we try to keep them we are taking away from the atonement made by Christ is absolute confusion.

The Lord asked us why we call Him Lord, Lord and then don't do what He says. What is our answer? That now we are under grace? What is grace anyway? Isn't grace the Presence of God in Christ that enables us to serve God? Do you know a more scriptural definition?

The Lord told us it is the individual who practices what the Lord taught who is building his house on the rock. Is this still true or not?

Does post-resurrection grace mean we do not have to build our house on the rock of the Lord's teachings?

What is a disciple? Isn't a disciple someone who listens to a master and practices what he teaches? This is what a disciple was in the days of Christ.

Many of us are fathers. Suppose we tell our child to do something. Does he make us proud by doing it or by not doing what we tell him? Which action on his part brings honor to us?

Did you ever go into a store and see a mother with a disobedient child? She would tell the child don't do this or don't do that. He would do everything his mother told him not to do. "Don't handle this, don't pick up that." But Johnny goes right ahead and does as he pleases.

Now I ask you, do such actions bring honor to his mother? How do you feel about his mother? You probably wish his mother would warm his bottom. And that is just what God does to us when we don't do what He commands.

We do not increase the majesty of Christ by ignoring His commandments or claiming we are saved by grace. Rather we bring a reproach on Christ in the sight of the inhabitants of Heaven.

A disobedient child is a shame and grief to his parents. Isn't that so? Doesn't the Bible say something about that?

A tremendous spirit of error has been woven in the tapestry of Evangelical teaching. I think Christ is rebuking the angel of the Evangelical churches. I think He is commanding us to repent and to hate the doctrine of lawless grace, of antinomianism, which He also hates.

Let each of us be an Antipas—against all. Let us be a wrong-way lemming. Let us turn around and run against the multitude that is rushing toward the ocean of spiritual destruction.

Christ said, "If you love me keep my commandments." There are no ifs, buts, or maybes. In order to please God we have to listen to Christ and do what He says.

If enough believers repent and start obeying God's Word perhaps God will spare our nation. Will you help?
