Does God love your ‘church’ buildings? Did He ever ask for such? Did He ask David or Solomon to build Him a house? Does God love the Old Covenant? Did He set this up? Did God love their old feasts? Did He ask them to kill animals in sacrifice? Did He love their Sabbaths? Did He set up the priests and prophets to rule over others? Was the Old Testament Covenant of God?
All of these are questions which you need the true answers. Have any of your ‘leaders’ taken the time to study and learn and teach you these important issues? Have you studied to learn this truth?
2Cor 3:7 But if the ministration of death,written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
Now study the above verse. That law which Moses ministered was DEATH. Did God give them death? Was it His choice? Do you really think so? Was not Adam commanded by God NOT to eat of that tree of death? Sure he was. So then, who was it that opened up this ‘tree of death’? It was clearly, ADAM. God had said the day you eat of that tree, you will DIE. So this tree of the knowledge of good and evil brought them death. It was that LAW. By the LAW is the KNOWLEDGE of sin. (evil).
See that God said the ministration which Moses ministered, written on stones (that law) was DEATH. So this very clearly and without any doubt proves that the law of Moses was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Now we know the Word says that God came down and wrote on those stones. But does this mean it was God’s chosen way? No! God had FORBIDDEN this. He had commanded Adam NOT to ‘eat’ or partake of this death tree. The majority of people on down through the ages, since that time, have also chosen law over grace. They chose death instead of life. All who refuse the NT salvation, taught in the Book of Acts, are still choosing death instead of life. This is the vast majority of people.
So then, why did God give that law to Moses? It was imposed upon them, because of their sins in choosing law instead of Grace. Since man chose the law, God gave it to them and showed all peoples of all ages, the dire consequences of eating of this tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the LAW. If you choose law, you are choosing death, eternal death.
So now, in order to show what things are of God, life, and what things are of Satan, death, we must find in the Word, the things which God either loves or hates. We will explore some of these things in this message Keep in mind, that if God did away with a thing, He never did love it or call for it. All things which are truly of God will remain eternally, for God is eternal, and all things which are of God are eternal.
Will that law of Moses remain eternally? No!
2Cor 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
See that Scriptures says that the end of that law of Moses was to be ABOLISHED. This means done away with. It also shows that this law blinded people, even when they ‘read’ it today.
Now, loads of people dote so much on the old Jewish feasts. They think this is the height of the things from God. But is this so? Let the Word show us.
Amos 5:21 – I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
Am 5:22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
Am 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
Now that is strong words. God said I HATE AND DESPISE YOUR FEAST DAYS. Then He made it clear that he does not want their animal sacrifices. But then, he points out that he does not want their songs or music either! Does this pertain to all times? Of course it does. God does NOT CHANGE. If He ever hated these things, he has always hated them and will always hate them. If God hates these things, then it is proof that He never at any time called for them. Is there proof that HE never required these things? Yes! Now I will prove right here that folks hate those of us who speak these truths and rebuke all this evil. God said this:
Amos 5:10 They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly. Am 5:11 Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them.
Those houses of hewn stone refers to their church buildings. It is not referring to their own homes. God would not be against their having homes of stone. They did not take from the poor to build their own homes. It was deceiving the poor into thinking it is doing God a service to build up those fancy ‘worship’ building, which God calls PALACES. I will prove that God hates those PALACES.
Amos 6:3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near; Am 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;
Am 6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of music, like David;
Am 6:6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
Am 6:7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.
Am 6:8 The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.
Now the above Scripture proves that God hated their music, their singing, and their PALACES. God said he abhorred or hated the excellency of Jacob. See, almost everyone thinks God loved those things. But this says that God hated them. He identified right here, those priests eating the animal sacrifices. It also types the modern-day preachers who take from the poor to build up their fancy palaces, churches. These poor Christians are the true ‘sheep’, and those preachers are ‘preying’ off these sheep for their own benefit. God HATES this.
Ps 78:69 And he built his sanctuary like high PALACES, like the earth which he hath established for ever.
This shows that God likens his sanctuary to PALACES.
Isa 23:13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the PALACES thereof; and he brought it to ruin.The ‘Assyrian’ types or shows Satan, or Adam. So this shows that Adam set up these PALACES for his own benefit. Satan is the god of the palaces, or church buildings. God hates them.
Isa 34:13 And thorns shall come up in her PALACES, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.
Jer 6:5 Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her PALACES.
Thorns, nettles and brambles are the law. See the command in Jer. 6:5, to God’s army, to go up by night and destroy her palaces.
