After the passing away of my mother, I realized something horrible about this world. They don’t care about you or your feelings. I learned that there is no love like a mother; there’s one greater but none equal.
My mom raised me to be ready for this world but I didn’t know simply because I was a teenager and wanted to have fun. No matter how mad I got because she wouldn’t allow me to do as the world did, she stood her ground. She would always and I mean always back it up with “Son I do this because I love you”.
After every beating; after all punishments; they were all followed by “I love you“.
It seems in such a crazy world that we’ve lost sight of what love is. My mom loved me enough to not allow me to do what I wanted to do knowing I was not going to agree with it.
Would she have loved me if she allowed me to do what I wanted?
Love is knowing what’s good for someone and then telling them; which is why I had to write this message.
The huge problem I see is with the churches telling people who all they have to do is have faith and they’ll make it into the kingdom of God. I was just on YouTube and saw a comment from some guy saying there would be murderers, stealers, fornicators etc. in heaven; contrary to the word of God. That’s what propelled me to write this post.
The people of this world are being lied to; thinking as long as they get a few tattoos of who we know as Jesus, wear a cross (which really means the complete opposite of what most think), read a few scriptures here and there and pray sometimes, they’ll make it into the Kingdom of God.
We look at it almost like God needs us in his Kingdom. Best believe he’s doing us a favor and we take it for granted.
What I’m getting at is NO SINNER will make it into the Kingdom of Heaven; and before you start turning to Ephesians, let’s break some things down.
We’re Saved Through Grace? Right?
I noticed that many people just shout out scriptures but don’t even know what they mean. I was once like this. Let’s look at the definition of grace first and get some understanding.
Grace: 1. A disposition to be generous or helpful; goodwill. 2. Mercy; clemency. 3. Divine love and protection bestowed freely on people. 4. The state of being protected or sanctified by the favor of God. 5. An excellence or power granted by God.
Ok so we can basically see that is favor that God did for us; that being stated in John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
That was the gift we were given and according to Titus 2:11, it is available to ALL MEN.
11. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
12. teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
13. looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
14. who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
I went past 11 a bit to show you what God expects for those that take this gift but we’ll get deeper into that in a bit.
So how is one to obtain this FREE gift of salvation that was given to us by the death of Christ on the cross? How are we truly saved?
Ephesians 2:8-10 says it plain as day
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
So All I Have To Do Is Have Faith? Right?

I’ve done a lot of study over the past year. Most for myself to gain knowledge and wisdom; a lot of it was to be able to battle with the devil as he reeks havoc on this world.
One of my biggest studies was/is were the “finger written” (not handwritten) 10 commandment laws that God gave Moses done away with, with the coming of Christ our saviour?
I’ve already broken down on a previous post on how the laws of God and laws of Moses are 2 different laws; with one being the law that you keep in order to stay away from sin (10 commandments) and the other being the law you keep when you sin against the 10 commandments (hand written by Moses).
Well this morning I came across the greatest evidence I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Pure evidence of just what Christ did away with and why he did away with it.
If you are a true follower of Christ and plan on making it into God’s kingdom, it is important that you at least read this as it’s only the word of God. Pray before reading it and ask that God show you truth and guide you in your decisions with his Holy Spirit.
No where in these scriptures will you find anything about the 10 commandments being done away with.
Read for yourself in Hebrews chapters 7 – 10. You can read further but those chapters pretty much cover everything that was done away with.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact anytime me here.
I decided to not put scripture here because I don’t want you to believe me. Read it for yourself. Never just believe what someone told you. Always read the Word for yourself.
If this was practiced more often, we wouldn’t have a whole world in bondage. I’ll explain the on a later post.
Thanks and God bless
PS. Remember Hebrews 7 – 10

Is Sunday Or Saturday The Sabbath Of the Lord?
God promises us if we seek the truth, we will find it. He also asks us once we find it or if we hear his voice, to not harden our hearts or refuse to hear it (Psalm 95:7,8). Please read everything to get wisdom and understanding.
If you are getting that feeling like this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about, read Hebrews 4. Pray to God for wisdom and understanding.
Recently I got into an intense text and email debate with a man that studies the bible and knows the bible like the back of his hand. At one point, this amazed me how he could quote scripture at the blink of an eye.
We were talking about a few things. The 10 commandments (exodes 20) and who were they for; What was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14); are Jews subject to different LAWS than us who are considered Gentiles and the main concern was are we suppose to or required to keep the Sabbath.
Now I’m not running around telling people “oh your wrong for going to church on Sunday” or “your going to hell for not keeping the Sabbath”. I would dead wrong and not doing the will of God if I did this. One close friend, even though we don’t see eye to eye on this exact matter, told me to tell the truth but at the same time, do it out of love.
This may plant a seed in some eventually opening their eyes to the truth in which God will show them if they continue to seek it.
Most preachers will say it doesn’t matter what day we praise the Lord. As long as we praise him he’s happy.
Do you ever wonder why most of us go to church or praise the Lord on Sunday rather than the seventh day which he specifically told us to do with the 4th commandment?
Sad thing is, most followers of Christ don’t; most of us just do what were taught from youth.
Even I’m guilty of this. I grew up not celebrating pagan holidays (christmas, halloween, valentines day, easter) and keeping the Sabbath; after 18 years of doing so, why start celebrating them now?
It wasn’t until I started doing bible studies and deep study about these subjects that I was able to understand why my mom forbade these holidays from being celebrated and the keeping of the sabbath or the seventh day of rest.
Now we believe diligently in keeping the 10 commandments. Were not perfect so sin is expected but as followers of Christ, we are expected to be (Matthew 5:48).
Lets just say I’m glad Jesus died for my sins and I hope you are too. I’ll touch more on that later because Christ dying for our sins plays a HUGE role in the Laws that God gave us.
Whats are Laws?
The definition of law is “a rule or order that it is advisable or obligatory to observe“. A better definition is “the revelation of the will of God set forth in the Old Testament”
In the old testament in Exodes 20, Moses was given the 10 commandments on Mt. Sinai. These were:
These were written on a tablet of stone. They were Laws that were put in place to distinguish what was sin and what was not.
If you killed a man, you sinned by breaking the 6th commandment. If you did work on the Sabbath, you broke the 4th commandment and so on; According to God, not me.
How Could They Be Forgiven If Without Christ?
Now as you should know, those times were before Christ died on the cross to grant us forgiveness for our sins.
After all God had done for the children of Israel, they still refused to keep his commandments (Nehemiah 9:16). Bible says they hardened their necks to his commandments.
Israel just wouldn’t stop sinning. In the beginning, God made it clear that sins could be forgiven through the shedding of blood or sacrificing of an animal.
In saying that, God commanded Moses to write his own Laws.
Here’s Where The Confusion Takes Place
