Everyone

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

Who can come to the cross and get saved? Everyone can come to Jesus and get saved. God does not show favoritism (Romans 2:11) Anyone who calls upon the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved (Romans 10:13) There is no race or nationality that will separate you from Christ, anyone who listens to the Good Shepherds voice are his Sheep

We live in a world full of labels and categories. If you look like this you are part of them, if you follow these rules you can be part of them. But Christ has torn down the walls, the veil has been torn at the cross. Everyone who calls on the name of Jesus Christ can be saved!

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” Romans 10:12-13

There is no distinction or difference between anyone through Christ. Jesus is Lord of Lords not just the Lord of the Jews or the Gentiles. Jesus is Lord over the entire world and heavens. Call upon him and you shall be saved, anyone

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

For God so loved the world , meaning everyone. Jesus didnt just die for my sins or your sins, he died for everyone who puts their trust and faith in him. Answer your call, and come to the Lord Jesus Christ and be set free Amen!

Yoke Of Iron

Therefore thus says the LORD, ‘Behold, I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This year you are going to die, because you have counseled rebellion against the LORD.'” Jeremiah 28:16

There was a false prophet named Hananiah, and he was telling everyone in Israel everything they wanted to hear. He was telling Israel there would be peace and prosperity. Even Jeremiah believed him at first saying , Amen! May The Lord do so! (Jeremiah 28:6)

Hananiah even broke the yoke off of Jeremiahs neck to symbolize that Israel would be set free from their burdens and captivity. Everything was sounding great, everyone was buying into this new prophet!

The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah after Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying, “Go and speak to Hananiah, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD, “You have broken the yokes of wood, but you have made instead of them yokes of iron.” Jeremiah 28:12-13

God quickly spoke to Jeremiah and rebuked everything Hananiah has told everyone. God warned Jeremiah anyone who follows Hananiahs instructions and serves the King of Babylon will receive a “Yoke of Iron”, this is obviously a more severe punishment than the Yoke of Wood they were carrying before

Then Jeremiah the prophet said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen now, Hananiah, the LORD has not sent you, and you have made this people trust in a lie. Jeremiah 28:15

Jeremiah then rebuked the False Prophet Hananiah and told him you are selling lies to the people and leading them astray. Doesn’t this sound familiar with Christianity today? How many false preachers do we see today selling “Snake Oil”? Selling Prosperity Gospel when there is no prosperity.

Be careful who you are following and listening to, God placed the Yoke of Iron on those who believed the False prophecy of Hananiah, Test the Spirits and make sure you are following True Doctrine!

Curse Of The Law

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us– for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE “—Galatians 3:13

Are you living Under The Law or are you living Under Grace? There are many Christians today who are still trying to be “legalist” who are still trying to fulfill the Law. Paul clearly teaches here “Anyone under the law is cursed”, why would you want to still live under the curse of the law?

For example, there is a Messianic Jewish group who teaches Circumcision is a salvation issue. They believe because God required circumcision under the Abrahamic Covenant, that its still required under the New Covenant.

This is a classic example of being a legalist. Trying to live under the law yet still claiming to be under grace. You cant be both, you are either under the law or under grace. Here is why

“If a man has committed a sin worthy of death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, Deuteronomy 21:22

Under the Mosaic Law anyone who committed a great sin should be put to death on a tree. As we know the wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23) Jesus took that curse for us and was crucified to a tree (Cross). If you repent of your sins and make Jesus your Lord, Jesus is the atonement for your sins.

This is why you cant live under the Law and Grace. Under Grace Jesus became cursed for your sins. Under the Law you are cursed and worthy of death. Repent and Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to set your free Amen!

Turn Now Everyone

saying, ‘Turn now everyone from his evil way and from the evil of your deeds, and dwell on the land which the LORD has given to you and your forefathers forever and ever; Jeremiah 25:5

The prophet Jeremiah has told the nation of Israel, he has been preaching the same message from God for over 23 years, but still nobody was listening. His message was very simple, Turn away from your sin (Repent) and dwell on the land ( Eternal Life)

However instead of listening to Jeremiah, they repeatedly mocked him, beat him, even imprisoned him. See people are very hostile to the Word of God. A lot of people don’t want to “Repent” because they love their sins more than they love God

and do not go after other gods to serve them and to worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the work of your hands, and I will do you no harm.’ Jeremiah 25:6

God said “Stop worshiping other gods” , the people of Israel worshipped many false gods including molech and baal. Today people have made many things their gods, Money, Sex, Drugs, Gambling, people put many things ahead of God , things that are unholy and destructive to themselves.

God said if you stop sinning  “I will do you no harm”, God is looking for people to come to Repentance!

From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4:17

Jesus continued to preach this message “Repent (Turn away from Sin) for the Kingdom of God (Eternal Life) is at Hand (Judgement is coming)

However Jesus did even more, he became the atonement for our sins! If we Repent he has declared us justified and righteous before God Amen!

Council of Jerusalem

nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified. Galatians 2:16

One of the great debates that continue in Christianity is the Law vs Grace. There are actually Christians today who still are arguing over this topic. However this issue was resolved by the First Century Church at the Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15)

Jewish Christians were still trying to keep the Law while being saved under Grace. Paul brought together all the Apostles to discuss this issue. Even as today, things got heated between the Apostles. Paul called out Peter for still living like he was Under the Law when Peter was Under Grace.  Peter separated himself from Gentile Christians because they were not circumcised.

“I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” Galatians 2:21

 Paul makes a bold statement here, if the Law justifies us then Christ died for no reason. The Law doesn’t justify anyone, only Jesus Christ can justify us before God. If you still living Under The Law then your are rejecting the Blood of Jesus Christ. The Law is a mirror to see our sin but not a means of atoning for our sins.

“Now therefore why do you put God to the test by placing upon the neck of the disciples a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? Acts 15:10

The Pharisees declared that Christians should practice the Mosaic Law (Acts 15:5) However Peter then stood up and said “Why are you expecting Christians to be bound to The Law when the Jews couldn’t keep the Law”?

“But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.” Acts 15:11

Peter states we are saved by Grace through Jesus Christ not The Law. While many even today like to bound Christians to the Mosaic Law, its only Jesus Christ that can save you, not the Law

Put your Trust in the works of Christ, as he said on the cross “IT IS FINISHED” the debt has been paid Amen!
