Jesus said in Matthew 7:24: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock." Matthew, chapters five to seven, gives the laws and principles of Jesus Christ’s teaching in a nutshell. The Mosaic law covered most of Exodus and all of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
Jesus said that His teachings, which covered only three chapters, are a rock solid foundation on which all His true followers are to build their lives. Added to this, He promises in Matthew 7:11 (compare Luke 11:13) good things: “How much more shall your Father which is in heaven give GOOD THINGS to them that ask him?” Luke 11:13 says that He gives the Holy Spirit to enable us to keep His teachings.
The children of Israel meticulously sought to follow the law of Moses, but failed miserably. There was so much to do and learn that they often became weary of it all and fell away from God. However, with the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, we who are the followers of Christ, should not find it that difficult to keep only three chapters of Jesus’ teachings.
God has blessed our nation as God-fearing people sought to make serious application of the teachings of Christ. But sad to say, something has happened that has turned our hearts to elect a leader in this critical hour who is flashy, fleshy, speaks evil of good men, favors various aspects of Planned Parenthood, and so on. It burdens me terribly that certain Christian celebrities would dare to endorse him.
Jeremiah 6:16 says: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the GOOD WAY, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
The democrat socialists offer new paths that have no foundational truths. They scorn the teachings of Christ and now we see a great deception threatening to deceive the followers of the old paths.
“We the people” should not blame the politicians we elect when we discover they were in fact RINOs. We should blame ourselves for being so naïve and gullible to elect them. Jesus said that we’ll know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:16, 20).
We must check out their past history and how conservative they have been over the years. We should never be so naïve to believe them when they say they recently changed from pro-choice to pro-life; that they were once on the democratic liberal side, but now have become conservative; that they a “good Christian,” but have never asked God for forgiveness.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 exhorts us to “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” The NLT says: “Test everything that is said.” The NASB says: “Examine everything carefully.”
The office of the president of the United States of America is a high office indeed and each candidate should be checked out thoroughly.
