LAW of CHRIST
is ONLY two SIMPLE COMMANDMENTS
LOVE GOD + LOVE NEIGHBOUR
[PERSON beside yourself as yourself]
"Bear ye one another's burdens,
and so fulfil the law of Christ."
"To them that are without law, as without law,
being not without law to God,
the law to Christ
that I might gain them that are without law."
"But these are written,
that ye(you.plural) might believe
that Jesus is the Christ(Anointed ONE),
the Son of God;
and that believing ye(you.plural) might have life
through His name."
"...Believe on the Lord Jesus,
and thou(you.singular) shalt be saved,
and thy(your.singular) house(family)."
Simple Salvation Prayer
"Lord Jesus Christ, I am a sinner.
Thank you for dying for all my sins.
Pls save me and my family, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen"
For Fair Use Discussion and Educational Purposes
ten or two
Ten Old Commandments
are PROPHETIC [SHALT]
pointing to our Saviour & Lord Jesus Christ's
TWO New Commandments
which we could fulfill
with CHRIST in Us.
1 statute for ever on feast of weeks [Pentecost]
1 statute for ever on feast of tabernacles
"And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day,
that it may be an holy convocation unto you:
ye shall do no servile work therein:
it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations."
"And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year.
It shall be a statute for ever in your generations:
ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month."
New Testament or Old Testament
"For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
"But their minds were blinded :
for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament;
which vail is done away in Christ."
2 thieves crucified with Jesus Christ
[thief on right or thief on left]
"Then were there two thieves crucified with Him[Jesus Christ],
one on the right hand, and another on the left...
The thieves also,
which were crucified with Him[Jesus Christ],
cast the same in his teeth."
"And with Him[Jesus Christ] they crucify two thieves;
the one on His right hand, and the other on His left."
tree of knowlegde or tree of Life
ten times "tree of Life" in BIBLE WOW!
"And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree
that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food;
the tree of life also in the midst of the garden,
and the tree of knowledge of good and evil."
"And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,
to know good and evil:
and now, lest he put forth his hand,
and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
...So He drove out the man;
and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims,
and a flaming sword which turned every way,
to keep the way of the tree of life."
"She[Wisdom] is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:
and happy is every one that retaineth her.“
”The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.“
”Hope deferred maketh the heart sick:
but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.“
”A wholesome tongue is a tree of life:
but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.“
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,
which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
“In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river,
was there the tree of life,
which bare twelve manner of fruits,
and yielded her fruit every month:
and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations...
Blessed are they that do His commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.”
Who is my modern day neighbour?
priest, [Christian]Levite or [Muslim]Samaritan? Or He that shewed mercy on him?
"And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
And by chance there came down a certain [Pastor]priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
And likewise a [Christian]Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
But a certain [Muslim]Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."
Lord Jesus' gave us 2+2 Commandments
of Lord Jesus are
old ten commandments summarised
into two commandments
Matthew:22:37-40: "Jesus said unto him,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
Mark:12:29-31: "And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel;
The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength
this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
Romans 13:8-10: "Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."
of Lord Jesus is for
All Christians to love one another
Lord Jesus' "I Command You[both plural&singular inclusive]" That ye[you.plural] love one another; as I have loved you[both plural&singular inclusive], that ye[you.plural] also love one another.[Repeated! 3x]
John:13:34: "A new commandment I give unto you,
That ye love one another
; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."
John:15:17: "These things I command you, that ye love one another."
from Lord Jesus through Paul is for
Lord Jesus' "I Command unto the married "Let not the wife depart from her husband"
1Corinthians:7:10: "And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord,
Let not the wife depart from her husband
Conditional ifs or 3 levels of conditions:-
1) if we love Lord Jesus, we keep His commandments.
John:14:15: "If ye love me, keep my commandments."
2) if we keep His commandments, we shall abide in Jesus' love and be loved of God the Father, and Jesus will love us, and will manifest Himself to us"
John:14:21: "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."
John:15:10: "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love."
3) if we do whatsoever Lord Jesus' commanded,
we are His friends!
John:15:14: "Ye are my friends,
if ye do whatsoever I command you."
Interesting that the last sentence of John14 is about Rapture...
John:14:31: "But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.
, let us go hence
Jesus also commanded all of us to watch for His return[2nd coming]!
Mark:13:34-37: "For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
More Exhortations to keep Lord Jesus our God's Commandments!
1John:2:3,4: "And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
1John:2:7,8: "Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in Him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
1John:3:22-24: "And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment, That we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment. And he that keepeth His commandments dwelleth in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us."
1John:4:21: "And this commandment have we from Him, That he who loveth God love his brother also."
1John:5:2,3: "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous."
2John:1:4-6: "I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk after His commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it."
Matthew:28:20: "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
