The Law and What Church to Attend

Hello

I stumbled out into your website

Thank you for it.

My name is Chris

I am in England, I am a recovered alcoholic by His Grace. I’m due to marry a wonderfull girl who to God has brought into the light of life.

I’m confused between all this law and grace teaching, in the sense of which way to go ?

We both done the 12 steps off AA a couple of years ago. Now I know there is error there. God opened my eyes. But ever since Christ removed the sin in our life and cleared us out. We have been trying to be settled in a church.

We have attended a Sabbath congregation ? But they kept law and feasts. But you will have to correct me here if needs be…. Didn’t Hebrews say the old has gone ? Also didn’t yeshua nail all the ordinances to the cross ??

Our heads are up the wall with this.

Sunday church just doesn’t preach truth at all.

It’s disheartning to us that we can’t find a church that preaches bible. God give me the harlot in proverbs about church. But we just want to do right in His eyes

Godbless and plz respond to this

Hi Chris,

Good to hear about how the Lord helped you stop drinking. 

Regarding your questions about law and grace, have you red our article, Law and Grace? You’ll find the answers there.

The “old” that’s gone isn’t the Law of God, such as the Ten Commandments. What’s gone are the sacrificial ordinances fulfilled by Christ, our Passover. He doesn’t do away with the Law; He fulfills it in us:

“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. For assuredly I say to you, until heaven and earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle shall by no means pass away from the Law until all things are fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18 EMTV).

Note that Colossians 2:14 doesn’t say that Christ blotted out the ordinances – it says that He blotted out the “handwriting” of the ordinances that was against us. In other words, it was the letter, not the spirit of the ordinances, which was done away when Christ fulfilled them. 

That’s why Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote the following words about the external rituals of the Law with its ordinances, 

“For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do all the Law, you who are justified by Law are deprived of all effect from Christ; you fell from grace” (Galatians 5:3-4 MKJV).

The Church

At your wit’s end, Chris? No need to panic. Believe God, your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who lives and rules over heaven and earth. He has the keys to death and hell and is using them on your behalf. Continue in faith and obedience, according to the teaching He has given us, and you have nothing whatsoever to worry about. After all, HE is our Savior and Lord.

Let us know how you’re doing after reading the links we’ve given you.

Thank you so much Paul 

I’m really touched you replied brother.

I call you brother with confidence….

I’ve just read ‘Here is the way it is’

It has spoken to my heart and mind in such a powerful way. I struggle to find, meet brothers with the same heart Paul

I hope it doesn’t sound arrogant, God showed me my depravity early on, so I innocently thought everyone in churches would think the same and walk the same as i tried. I believe in death of self Paul with daily renewal has apostle Paul talks about. I eat fresh bread daily, and have a pretty much constant dialogue with The Holy Spirit.

One of my favorite scriptures is the kernel of wheat having to die first.

We with much tribulation will enter the kingdom of God…

What do you suggest church wise Paul ??

I must admit the Sabbath congregation worship is overflowing with The Holy Spirit, my fiancé loves it as well. 

I thank you for standing on your rock Paul 

I pray you stay unswerving in truth.

Godbless you brother

Hi Chris, 

You ask what I would suggest about church. Did you not see the answer in Here Is the Way It Is

Have you red the other teachings we gave you? The Church in particular also answers your question with life-giving truth, if you receive and walk in what the Lord is saying to those whom He calls. 

There are these writings, as well:  

The Case for Coming Out
Counterfeit Christianity
The Fellowship of the Saints
The Gathering
The High Places

You say about the Sabbath gathering you’re attending: 

I must admit the Sabbath congregation worship is overflowing with The Holy Spirit, my fiancé loves it as well. 

Aren’t you judging after the appearance – the emotional and motivational effect of the service, confusing how you feel with the Presence of God? Read The Worship of God.

There are weighty life and death considerations in front of you, even the cross, which you can only take up for yourself and not for your fiancé. You can’t insist on unity or try to bring her along if her heart isn’t with the Lord. You’ll end up forsaking Him to keep your life. 

Matthew 10:37-39 MKJV
(37)  He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
(38)  And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.
(39)  He who finds his life shall lose it. And he who loses his life for My sake shall find it.

Paul

Powerful, & “obviously” endorsed by God through the miracles He wrought through RW.. which ARE well documented!! We are to judge.. we judge every day!!! But you BETTER use caution when criticizing God’s elect!! Romans 8:33! I wouldn’t DO IT!!! Period!! I just wouldn’t do it! At all!! You’re playing with a dangerous fire!! I’ve been researching Schambach for years! One of the reasons I like Schambach, was his truthfulness, passion & zeal!! It’s more than likely.. that he said something that stepped on your toes somewhere in something he said! He cared NOT what people thought.. his zeal was for God! Unlike many preachers today.. afraid of hurting peoples feelings.. was not on his agenda!! His “prosperity” teaching?? I think the Bible is teaching prosperity pretty much throughout!! Christ said, “I have come that they might have life, & have it more abundantly!” That sounds like a pretty blessed prosperity message to me!!! I didn’t write to be mean, argue, or fight!! I am just saying.. I wouldn’t judge anyone to put them down (as is the clear case here), but I ESPECIALLY wouldn’t judge God’s elec...

From: Carin To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, July 31, 2016 4:36 PM I just wanted to let you know that what Todd White is doing is the work of Jesus Christ and I personally have been healed by Jesus through Todd white.  May the Father of Abraham , Isaac, Jacob ,David and Yeshua open your eyes to the truth. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Carin Sent: Monday, August 08, 2016 6:39 AM Subject: Eyes Opened to the Truth Tell us more about your healing, Carin. If you received it by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, wonderful! We’ve never said one can’t believe anything Todd White says. What we’ve said is you can’t follow Todd White and the Lord Jesus Christ – it’s one or the other because Todd is doing his own thing in the Name of the Lord. Impressive as his sincerity and works may be, Todd isn’t preaching or taking up The Cross - Only the Death Sentence Will Avail. “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect. Behold, I have told you beforehand” (Matthew 24:24-25 MKJV). God’s elect have their eyes opened and are not deceived.
