Past or Present?

November 5, 2012

People believe (after Jesus died on the cross) the Old Testament does not apply to our lives today. In the Ten Commandments, God said: “thou shalt not have no other God before me, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal”.
God words hold true today. Because Christ died for our sins, does not give us liberty to commit adultery, steal or kill? For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not (Romans 6:14-15)! No weapon formed against you shall prosper.
In the Old Testament, God is speaking “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, and they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned
nor shall the flame scorch you. I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior” (Isaiah 43:2-3).

God laid out His promises and they still hold true today. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men (John 1:1-4). So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

We cannot change God Words around to fit our needs. If He spoke it, that is what He meant. For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book[l] of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book (Revelations 22:18-19).
