IT IS TIME TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF THE CATECHISTS AND THEIR LEADERS
BELIEVED IN JESUS CHRIST, THEY WERE NOT ANY MORE
GOING TO BRING PEOPLE TO RECITE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF
MOSES BECAUSE THESE COMMANDMENTS ARE
NOT ONLY WEAK, POWERLESS, AGEING, BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE
THEY RATHER KILL THE SOUL INSTEAD OF SAVING IT.
It is the 321st message.
Spiritual crimes (very serious) and strong lamentations; why do the catechists and their leaders make the people to recite and to believe in the ten commandments of the ageing or death law, or again of the letter that kills? Are they raised up, established or mandated by the Lord Jesus Christ to teach the faith in him or by the Prince of death to maintain the people in the spiritual death through the belief in a law which is ageing, death, powerless and weak to save the soul? The devil knows that we cannot win or dominate him by the law of Moses, but instead by faith in Jesus Christ. In the will to maintain the soul in the eternal death, he has raised mercenaries and he has given them much money and the supremacy to make the people to believe in a law which cannot give life to their souls no matter the degree of the practice. The devil knows that if the faith in Christ is taught and that the people believe in it, it will be a defeat for him and he will lose the souls that he hold captive; but if the ageing law; the one that kills is taught by the catechists and that the captives believe in it, it will only be his glory in man.
The Lord Jesus has seen the degree of the deception of these mercenaries of the devil who are masked and who pretend to be his shepherds. He has thus decided to bring down these masks; for how does it makes that the carnal law of Moses which is ageing and which was given to the ancient man and ended when that of the spirit of Jesus Christ was announced is still taught by the catechists meanwhile the new man has given the new law which is spiritual? Let the world of christians understand that the carnal law was only for the people of Israel in his time and it was only concerning people’s flesh until the coming of the one that came in spirit through Jesus Christ and which is faith. It is for this reason that Apostle Paul says: “Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed” (Galatians 3/23). Only the people of Israel were concerned with the carnal law and no other nation, meanwhile all the nations of the world are concerned with faith in Jesus Christ.
In the time of Moses, the Eternal God asked him to announce the law not to all the people, but only to the people of Israel coming from Egypt, and when he sent the Lord Jesus Christ, it was to announce his precepts to the entire world. As the Lord Jesus is in the faith for the world of Christians, it was also the case of Moses in the law for the people of Israel. Therefore, the Eternal God has sent the Lord Jesus to deliver the entire world from slavery of the sin as it is said: “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1/29) or again, when the Lord says: “As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me” (John 6/57). In the same way, he sent Moses to deliver the people of Israel from slavery in Egypt as it is said: “Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt” (Exodus 3/10).
The Lord Jesus has brought a spiritual law and his own blood to sanctify our conscience from dead works and to make a spiritual alliance with God as it is said: “how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God” (Hebrews 9/14). It is also the same with Moses who brought a carnal law and the blood of animals for the purification of the defiled flesh for the people of Israel and to make a carnal alliance with God as it is said: “And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words” (Exodus 24/8). As Jesus has been brought by the spirit in the desert where he fastened for 40 days and 40 nights before starting to proclaim the spiritual law in the world as it is said: “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry” (Matthew 4/1-2), in the same way, Moses was on the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights with God without eating and drinking before coming to proclaim the carnal law to the people of Israel as it is said: “So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights. He neither ate bread nor drank water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments” (Exodus 34/28).
As the Lord Jesus is lifted so that all the people should believe in him and become saved in dominating the sin as it is said: “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself” (John 12/32; John 3/14). In the same way, Moses also lifted the fiery snake in the desert so that whoever was bitten by a snake had to look at the snake which was lifted by Moses in order not to die physically as it is said: “So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live” (Numbers 21/9). Therefore, Moses has been sent by the Eternal God to deliver the people physically, and the Lord Jesus is sent by the Eternal God to deliver the entire world spiritually as well as the people of Israel. After Moses in the flesh, it is Jesus Christ in the spirit, and since it is not the one that is in the flesh who is great but instead the one that is in the spirit, that is why the Lord Jesus has more glory than Moses as it is said: “who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house. For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself” (Hebrews 3/2-3).
As we consider the Lord Jesus to be the saviour and that it is through the obedience to his word of spirit that we are justified in spirit in front God, it is this same consideration that the people of Israel manifested in front Moses because it was through his law that they were justified in front God. That is why out of the Lord Jesus Christ, there has never been a prophet similar to Moses in Israel as it is said: “And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, none like him for all the signs and the wonders that the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, and for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel” (Deuteronomy 34/10-12). That is even why the Eternal God told Aaron and Mary that when there shall be another prophet after Moses out of Jesus, he will speak to him through dreams and visions but it is not the case with Moses as it is said: “Not so with my servant Moses. He is faithful in all my house. With him I speak mouth to mouth, clearly, and not in riddles, and he beholds the form of the Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?” (Numbers 12/7-8).
After the death of Moses in the desert, the Eternal God recommended Joshua to take courage and to walk in fidelity according to the law that Moses commanded him as it is said: “Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go” (Joshua 1/7). The people of Israel were doing everything according to the law of Moses, that is why it is said: “At that time Joshua built an altar to the Lord, the God of Israel, on Mount Ebal, just as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded the people of Israel, as it is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, “an altar of uncut stones, upon which no man has wielded an iron tool.” And they offered on it burnt offerings to the Lord and sacrificed peace offerings” (Joshua 8/30-31). Therefore, you were to be righteous according to the law of Moses in order to have success in everything. That is why before the death of David, he told Solomon: “and keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn” (1 Kings 2/3).
Many people in Israel found it difficult to believe in Jesus because they knew that Moses has given everything to them. That is why some of them were insulting those who were speaking well on the behalf of the Lord Jesus, saying that they are disciples of Moses and not those of this man (Jesus), and that they know that God has spoken to Moses and not to this man as it is said: “And they reviled him, saying, “You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where he comes from” (John 9/28-29). The Lord Jesus knew that these lasts were not observing the law of Moses that is why he was saying to them: “Has not Moses given you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law. Why do you seek to kill me?” (John 7/19), and he continued saying: “If on the Sabbath a man receives circumcision, so that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because on the Sabbath I made a man's whole body well?” (John 7/23). Therefore, the majority of the people of Israel did not understand the word of Moses because Moses himself knew that it is not his carnal law that will save the soul, but the soul was to be saved by the spiritual law which was to come from another prophet like him; Jesus Christ. That is why he said: “Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people” (Acts 3/22-23).
The Lord Jesus knew that Moses said in his word that another person will come and he will speak to them; they will obey him, but his word will be rejected by those who continue to consult the book of the law and it is the word of this book (Moses) that will accuse them in front the Father and not him, that is why it is said: “Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” (John 5/45-47). That is even the reason for which they held Stephen because he was telling them that the carnal law of Moses was changed by the spiritual law of Jesus as it is said: “for we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and will change the customs that Moses delivered to us” (Acts 6/14). The people knew that they were to be saved by the customs of Moses that is why it is said: “But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved” (Acts 15/1) or again as Acts 15/5 says: “But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up and said, “It is necessary to circumcise them and to order them to keep the law of Moses”. Meanwhile, when the Lord Jesus was still a baby and when he was presented to Simeon by his parents, Simeon prophesised saying that this child, by his word and blood, he is appointed to be the fall of the belief in the carnal law and the rising of the spiritual law (faith), and that it was to become a contradiction (Luke 2/34).
Therefore, the Lord Jesus was rejected by the people of Israel not because he was considered to be the one who was coming to take them out of the carnal law to that of the spirit of truth, but because he was taken for a simple man who was against the law of Moses, for he was saying that his Father and him are ONE in the spirit of truth. Therefore, for the people of Israel, according to the law of Moses, Jesus Christ was a blasphemer and whoever blasphemes against God was to be killed by all the people according to the law of Moses as it is said: “Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him. The sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death” (Leviticus 24/16). The people make use of this law to finish with the one that they took to be a blasphemer or an impostor as it is said: “When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no guilt in him.” The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to that law he ought to die because he has made himself the Son of God” (John 19/6-7).
Saul was fighting the faith because he had not yet received the Lord Jesus or because he had not yet recovered the view. But once it was done, he started to glorify the faith that he was fighting in the past by announcing it. That is why the testimony is given on his behalf as it is said: “They only were hearing it said, “He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” And they glorified God because of me” (Galatians 1/23-24). In the same way, when the catechists and their leaders will receive the Lord Jesus in spirit and in truth, as well as the recovery of the view, they will no longer fight against faith in the teaching of the ten commandments and the customs of men that fight this faith in Jesus Christ. We have been released from the carnal law, that is why it is said: “But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code” (Romans 7/6). This letter which is ageing kills, that is why it is said: “who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3/6).
CHAMPI Apostle not behalf of man, nor by a man but by Jesus Christ and God the Father. God’s power is the knowledge. To know, avoid sin and to be free from the eternal death. (John 8/32)
