No Old Covenant AnyMore - It Is Gone

Discussion in 'General Theology' started by LiveInMercyAndTruth, Apr 16, 2012.

  1. There is no old covenant anymore.

    IT IS GONE.

    No one...NO ONE living on EARTH

    is under the Law of Moses.

    NO ONE...NO ONE

    living on Earth right now

    Has a covenant with God except the those who are

    born again by His Spirit.

    THE OLD COVENANT IS GONE.

    REPLACED BY THE COVENANT OF THE SPIRIT.

    That Jesus brought to his own and testified and

    sanctified

    by his death and resurrection.


    THERE IS 1 COMMANDMENT.

    1

    ONE

    YOU HAVE TO FULFILL.

    IF YOU DO NOT

    YOU ARE GOING INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    This is the mark of the children of God.

    God is the God of

    EVERYONE ON ALL THE EARTH.

    God is the God of

    EVERY NATION ON ALL OF EARTH.

    There is no difference between a christian or a Jew or a atheist or satanist or priest or whatever

    unless

    THEY ARE BORN AGAIN BY WATER AND SPIRIT.

    Romans 13:8-11(NKJV)
    8Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
    9For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
    10Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
    11And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.


    1 Corinthians 7:19(NKJV)
    19Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.


    Luke 18:20(NKJV)
    20You know the commandments...

    you do know the commandments, don't you?
     
  3. I know that if you do not obey this one

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    EVERYTHING ELSE IS IN VAIN.

    You can love your neighbor and not

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    You can love one another and not

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    You can keep the Sabbath

    and not

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    You can go to church and not

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    You can say this to me

    Romans 13:8-11(NKJV)

    8Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
    9For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
    10Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
    11And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

    19Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.


    Luke 18:20(NKJV)
    20You know the commandments...

    you do know the commandments, don't you?

    and not

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.


    THERE IS 1 COMMANDMENT.

    1

    ONE

    YOU HAVE TO FULFILL.

    IF YOU DO NOT

    YOU ARE GOING INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

    Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

    with all thy mind

    with all thy soul

    and with all thy strength.

    If you obey this 1 commandment...then everything else you do will be acceptable to God. you will fulfill it ALL.

    Is this true?

    it's in rom 13:9, the part that says "you shall love your neighbor as yourself"!

    look at this exchange Jesus had with one of the scribes:



    Mark 12:28-31(NKJV)
    28Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”
    29Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
    30And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
    31And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these

    the ten are summed up by these two!

    the first four of the commandments show love toward God, and the other six show love toward our fellow man, or neighbor!

    now, in rom 13:9, paul says "they are all summed up", but notice which ones he cited to say the last part of that verse!

    and, 1cor 7:19 underscores all of that!
     
  7. I do not love myself.

    How can you love yourself if you love God with all your heart.

    Tell me.

    If ALL your heart belongs to God.

    How can you have any part of it?

    To love yourself?

    Tell me.

    love yourself?

    where did that come from?

    the scripture talks about a "selfless" love!

    love toward God and neighbor!

    how do you get love of "self" from that?
     
  9. How much do you love your neighbor?

    Tell me.

    when you love God with all your heart, that in turn will extend to your neighbor in like manner, correct?
     
  11. Thank you for proving my point.
     
  12. Now tell me...can you love your neighbor and not love the Lord thy God with all thy heart?

    yes or no?

    no, because the two go hand-in-hand, as i've already pointed out!

    remember, it's spelled out in the ten commandments!
     
  14. You haven't done anything. Except prove me to be correct.

    well, it was fun for me!

    and i'm glad to be of service!
     
  16. You have a good attitude. I like that about you. I can see that about you. Have you been that way all your life?
     
  17. That is an awesome blessing of the Lord you got.
     
  18. The Lord told me this about you.

    That good attitude he has blessed you with has gotten you through some very tough times.

  20. Well

    I know this. You profit from it just about everyday of your life since God gave it to you. And you use to not have it and now you do and it serves you well. That makes you a winner.
