Many people are questioning their salvation. It is as easy as 1 2 3. One, repent. Two accept Jesus. Three obey God, that would mean both The Father and The Son, you know, the whole Bible is needed.
So you are doing what you know from the N.T., super. Now do what you know to do from the O.T.. Remember Jesus didn’t fulfill the law when He came as a son of God. It is easy to see that He, Jesus, didn’t worry about being a king or priest. He did what He could from the law, as should we.
We suggest you begin at the beginning and get used to His voice. But if you will apply Deut. 6:8-9 before reading, it will help you understand what He needs you to know to fulfill the will of God. For He comes to fulfill God’s will. It isn’t our place to fulfill but Jesus’. He needs people to work through.
So let’s show you why The Heavenly Father wants you in His Word.
Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.
Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5
The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1
The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13
and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity. He is The Law that hung on the cross and The Law that is written in the heart.
Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
God armed His people with the Holy Spirit. Jesus also arms those who love Him, with His voice spoken on top of the mount, just as His Father did. Both the Word of God and the Word of Jesus adds life, for their words are spirit and they are life, allowing The Spirit to lead our flesh and fulfill the will of God.
By obeying God, meaning the law, prophets, and N.T. allows us to show God we are His children and we do as He does. It also protects us from those who come to steal, kill, and destroy, plauges etc..
As well we gain the wisdom, understanding, protections, and promises our Heavenly Father gives to those who love and obey Him.
By adding more life to what God has already given us we can see our children’s children or more. We can be the wisdom, and love many of us need. To be there for those you don’t want to leave behind to struggle in this world.
We can make this world, a world we wouldn’t mind leaving for our children. To give them a firm foundation so they can live a care free life. With gained knowledge from what the Bible can teach us, maybe, just maybe we can bring the Kingdom of God to earth.
