The Old Testament God Never Changed

The old testament lord God of Israel never changed he is the same yesterday today and forever. So what has changed? Ever since the beginning of the world the lord God of Israel loved people. He created male and female according to how he designed them to live. But ever since the beginning people fell away and they followed their own lusts and desires and did what was wrong in the sight of the Lord so the Lord God was sorry he made people so he sent a flood and he destroyed what he had made except one righteous man and his family and the Lord God made a covenant with this man saying he would never against destroy the world with a worldwide flood like that again. Now the Lord God will destroy the world oneday with fire, but not again with a flood. Ever since the beginning of time, the Lord God and JEsus Christ existed together as one. One God. Jesus said that himself, he said before Abraham was I AM. Jesus was crucified from the foundations of the world that means that the Lord God had already made up how he would save people who turn away from him. He already made the way to be saved even before he created anybody.

So the way to be saved was always through Jesus Christ the son of God who is the Lord God himself, the form of the son, and the Lord God made this promise to the prophets and to moses and to the Israelites and to Abraham that the Messiah would come to die for the sins of the people and while that promise was going to be made the Lord God sent a law to keep order, a school master to ready people for the coming of the Messiah it was called the law of Moses and the 10 commandments. The idea of the law of Moses and the 10 commandments was to keep people apart from the ways of the world and separated unto the Lord God so that when the Messiah comes they would choose him. The old law was the schoolmaster but it didn't save people. People who died under the law went to paradise if they repented and accepted the Lord because the Lord and Jesus are one. People who died who didn't repent of their evil ways and continued following sin and wickedness and they didnt obey or follow the Lord God of Israel, they ended up in the fires of hell like the the rich man who JEsus spoke of who was wealthy and didn't regard for the poor and he ended up in hell. That was before Jesus died for the sins of the world. While Abraham who didn't have the Torah yet feared and obeyed God and left the sins of the flesh which everybody has as conscience since the days Adam walked the earth, he entered paradise. But he couldn't enter the kingdom because he wasnt born again. You cannot be born again except you go through Jesus Christ. You see Jesus Christ was crucified from the foundations of the world and the saints waited patiently until the day that the Lord came and released them and took them to the kingdom of heaven.

Because Jesus came as he promised and he die for the sins of the people and for all the people before who had looked forward to this and had faith in this wonderful promise that they saw from afar far off. They ever experienced it but they had faith in it, Jesus saved all those people. And all the people who are now living with the promise of Jesus Christ as the reality in real life right here and now, he still is the only way to salvation. God never changed. He never made salvation through the Torah. He never made salvation any other way, he only brought about a school master to keep law and order on the earth until the Lord Jesus came to show the people his true heart. You see law breakers who didn't repent ended up in hell still. and those who did repent even those who were wicked in the past and had murdered or had done sin, if they did repent and they were repentant before the Lord God of israel then they were going to be saved by Jesus Christ and their sins forgiven. You see Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved and he always was the only way to be saved and he always is going to be the only way to be saved. Even before humans beings were created on this earth he still was the only way that people could be saved and made right before the Lord God because he was the sacrificial lamb that was planned to die for the world even before the world was created.

Because the Lord God wanted all people to have a chance to be saved and so he put within them a conscience to know what is right and wrong without being told and then they had to obey their conscience and whether they were going to obey the Lord God of Israel or whether they were going to go on in their wickedness. And the Lord will judge people according to that. You see we have JEsus Christ to follow and obey. Christians still try to follow the 10 commandments to be saved. But Jesus Christ didn't do away with the 10 commandments. Those commandments were also around before the beginning of time although Abraham wasn't given those commandments, he still knew them in his heart because of his conscience. You see the commandments are the basic righteousness of the Lord God in heaven and JEsus fulfils all those commandments. You see the commandments say that we must not murder, Jesus said that we must not murder and he stipulated what murder is. He said that murder is thinking evil in your heart towards people. The law says not to commit adultery but Jesus said that not only must you not commit adultery but you also must not look in lust cause that is adultery too. Jesus brought about the law of love that was made possible by a chance of heart which is what happens when you get born again. It can only happen dear friend, you can only change and get a new spirit and a new heart by the Lord when you get born again by the Lord Jesus Christ. Otherwise you just got a promise afar off like the prophets had. About what was going to happen in the future. But it has already happened now so here we are in the time and age of grace where we can be born again on this earth and not have to wait for paradise. Dear friends it is time to get born again. You see the fourth commandments people get all confused about that one, the sabbath.

Jesus Christ fulfilled the sabbath also. When we are born again and rest in Christ we fulfil the sabbath commandment. And we must obey and follow the Lord of the sabbath everyday for did not even David eat of the forbidden bread on the alter on the sabbath. This is what the pharisees tried to accuse the disciples of, eating on the sabbath (working). You see Jesus is LORD of the sabbath. Now if you don't want to work on the sabbath that is all well and good. You do what you must do for the Lord Jesus Christ. But we no longer have to follow the written letter of the law because now we have Jesus Christ who those people didn't have. They only had the old school master. The prophets and moses only had the old schoolmaster. But we got Jesus Christ now. So we got to obey him and he is going to tell you what to do. IF you get to know him he is going to tell you what you must do. He is going to tell you what you must not do and he is going to show you what you must go and do which is a little bit more that what the written letter of the law can tell you. You see he is the new way. He came and fulfilled the old way and the schoolmaster made way for the new way which is through Jesus Christ who always was and always is. Now since the Lord God of Israel has never changed and he always was who he is and will be in the future, you must know dear friend that you can never get away from living a sinful life. You see in the old days in the past when a nation forsook God and when they lived in immorality and sin and when it reached a height that overflowed the cup, God always destroyed that nation completely, men women and children until there was none left. He brought judgement upon wicked nations like this. The same happened to Sodom and he was going to do it to Ninveah he was going to completely destroy them too because they had reached the point when their cup of iniquity had overflowed. You see God hasn't changed, he will do it again. He did it to Rome. He brought many nations to an end between Jesus' day and today.

He will do it again because this generation is forsaking God and their cup of iniquity is overflowing. So that is why if you do not want to share in the wrath that is coming upon the unjust and those who love a lie and follow the ways of the devil, you must turn away from their path because the Lord God hasn't changed. he will still do away with them man, woman and child until there is none left once the point has been reached that they must be dealt with. However the Lord God is and always was long suffering. He always allows his people to repent. He always sends warnings. he always shakes them. He shakes a nation trying to warn it to repent. He gives people ample time to repent and turn to Jesus Christ. he enables people to turn away from their sin and be saved. He gives them many many years but finally there always comes a time with God when the Lord God of Israel says enough is enough and he draw the sword and he puts an end to wickedness because he hates sin. Really he hates sin. The Lord God has changed my friends he is going to do the same in this day and this age. He is going to draw the sword and he is going to destroy the people who do not turn away from sin and repent after he has warned them. After he has given them chance after chance to turn. Finally if they have finally made their final decision then he goes into action and he renders upon them his mighty justice. You see with God you can never fool him. What you sow is what you will reap.

You must honour and respect the Lord God of Israel who sent Jesus Christ as the only way to salvation and he has never changed, he is still the God of the old testament and the God of the new testament. He is the same and he always was the same and he always will be the same, he hates sin but he loves righteousness and holiness and he expects you to walk on that path following his son JEsus. If you want to please the Lord God then you need to walk on the path of righteousness fulfilling the commandments of his son Jesus and that delights the Lord. There is no other way, you can try and strive to keep the sabbath but you will not please God at all because you rant believing and following his son Jesus and you are trying to rely on the old schoolmaster to be saved and that doesn't please God at all. He is only please with those who really strive to turn away from their evil and instead they embrues the Lord JEsus and seek to follow him in all they do. He is mighty pleased with those people, in face he said that is the work of man.

Jesus himself said that, he said that the work of man is to belie in Jesus, to believe in me. So dear friends never be deceived by Torah keeping by all these laws by all these written commandments like the Muslims try to keep, and the Jews, Dear friends God has never changed, he is always the same his commandments are fulfilled in Jesus Christ and when you obey and follow Jesus Christ you are obeying and fulfilling the whole law when you listen to Jesus and do what Jesus tells you what to do. Because Jesus hear and he speaks and he leads and guides in your heart and he will show you where to go and what to say and who to give and who to give and who to help and he will put these things into your heart to test you to see if you really love him and if you want to be filled with his love and he is going to allow you to be tested to see if you really would turn away from your sins and be filled with his love, Dear friends it is time to dedicate to Jesus Christ only and leave trying to keep the Torah law and all the written things.

Leave it behind and embrues the way that was of old which is Jesus Christ who was crucified since the foundation of the world and you must follow and obey him resting in his victory which is your sabbath. Now dear friends let us separate ourselves from the World and follow Jesus and obey him where ever we possibly can with all our hearts in the name of the Lord. In the name of the Lord mighty God may Jesus bless you.....
