Keep Or Not Keep The Commandments?

God is very much into us keeping His laws and commandments. Those who love Him, follow Him and do as He says. This is God’s people. However, every person who does not hearken unto God are His enemies. We can’t be straddling the fence on this. We are either for God or against Him. Speaking of being on God’s side and keeping His commandments, God said, “ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God. Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord. If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.” (Leviticus 26:1-4) “And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.” (Leviticus 26:12) Therefore, worshipping Mary, the saints, or angels is simply out of the question. We only worship God. In so doing, we also keep the Sabbath each week and make it holy unto God.

People who feel the opposite about God’s commandments and laws for mankind, God also calls them His enemies. I am not talking about keeping the laws of Moses, but the ten commandments, the two greatest, and other teachings from God that are for us today. It is written, “but if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant: I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.” (Leviticus 26:14-17) Even in the times we live in today, God’s laws and commandments are as important as ever. Those who obey God and what His word says are blessed, but those who do not are punished. Amen.

Let us pray:
Lord, keep us in Your right standing. Help people understand what it means to follow You. Many people don’t think that good works are important anymore, which is a travesty. This is the lie from the pit of hell that we can just live the life we want to and still go to heaven because of our faith in You. God, these people have taken grace too far. Do they even read the Bible? I wonder this, for keeping Your commandments is all throughout the old and new covenant. Surely, we don’t have a free ride into heaven because of our faith, but a faith that is alive in You. Lord, help us know and understand that there is a physical hell for people who disobey You. There should be a fear of God in these people’s lives. Maybe then will they wake up to their sinful state and forsake it for Your sake. This life is short, but our obedience to You will continue past this life and the next. How can people even think they can go to heaven if they are not listening to Your voice now and obeying You. Heaven is going to be so wonderful and I pray that more people will make it there. They need You first, Jesus. I love You, God. Amen.
