The Law of the Land

It seems people think in order to please God we have to do every one of His laws or O.T.. I want to try and bring it home and gain more understanding. I live in America, so I will use Her as an example. There is no one who can do all the laws of any nation or kingdom. They are required to do the laws that apply to what they do. Say you want to drive a car, any law written that applies to drivers would apply to you. But if you are not a driver, then those laws aren’t for you. There are laws that apply to all citizens. Things like: don’t kill others, don’t steal etc.. These laws we all hold in common.

Okay so we know not all laws apply to us all. God’s laws pretty much work in the same manner. The priestly laws belong to the priests. Likewise, the laws for the kings–or government–belongs to them. Those laws are not for us. We are called the children of God, or citizens of His Kingdom, so we find the laws that apply to us all and those are the ones we learn and do. We leave God’s law to God to do and we do our part.

Ever notice that Jesus didn’t practice the priesthood nor the kingly laws of God while He walked the earth? He submitted to the leader or king. He didn’t do any priestly job. Yet He kept the things they all had in common. The law of the land and the law of His Father.

So, today we would do the same. We obey God by doing the things He ask of His children and we keep the Constitution, the law of the land, or the law of our mother. And of course we apply any law of America that applies to us, mainly what the Founding Fathers gifted us.

Avoiding the Old?

It seems most people will do anything they find Jesus of the N.T. asking or showing them what to do. Yet they avoid the O.T. like the plague where the wisdom of The Father rests.

So what does Paul mean when He tells us ‘to put on Jesus’? He doesn’t tell us to pray Him on, but to PUT Him on and pray always.

In John we are told Jesus is The Word. If Jesus is a Word then we can surely do as we are told and ‘put’ Him on, if we only knew what Word Jesus is. Some declare He is the Bible. The Bible is a book that speaks of Him, but The Word we are told to put on is The Word of God.

The very Word God Himself spoke with His own breath (our Lord)). That Word God wrote with His own finger (Jesus) and The Word God made flesh (The Christ). Our Trinity.

When Paul tells us to put on the full armour of God, or to put on Jesus, it is the same thing the wisdom of God tells us in Deut.6:8-9. To preserve life, to protect our family and everything we have worked for. Remember we are told they will come to steal, kill, destroy. Our Lord Jesus Christ can and will protect all we give Him to protect.

We again were told that we are not to let the world overtake us. We are not to become like them. We are to love and wait on our Lord. We can only do that if we allow Him to protect us as we spread The Word and show others how to protect what they love and worked for.

Christians are being eliminated from all over. We must learn to make a stand and show others to do the same by trusting and obeying our God.

The armour of God is found throughout the Scriptures. The Father started by giving instructions to the children. We aren’t kings nor priests, but we are His children and our Father instructs His own children. The armour is found in the law, prophets, and N.T..

Times are getting tough and time is short. The invasion of America must be stopped and God is our only hope. Let Him fight our battles, keep evil from us and protect us from our enemies. And may we all come to trust Him and help others make their stand.

Life and death is in the tongue. Those words from the mouth of The Father (Ten Commandments) and those from The Son (Sermon on the Mount) gives us the law and testimony we are going to need to overcome the world. We know the voice of our God for they are spirit and they are life.

Go and get busy, search the Scriptures for things He wants us to wear or to do. Learn to “keep” those things you find good. Love Him by seeking His truth, love your neighbour by showing them what you have found. May His presence go with us all and all be found in His will, for the whole duty of men is to “KEEP” the Commandments.
