If the New Testament were not written in today's modern language we would really be in trouble. As it is people change its meaning every day to suit whatever mood they are in. Not only do they change it's meaning from day to day but when they don't find what they need they bring out the Old Testament and claim to hear from God in a new way. But if you are a Christian then you are under the New Covenant and the New Testament. Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; KJV
Christianity is all about Jesus and what he did on the cross. It is also about being born again, 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. He is a new creature, he does not speak as he did when he was not saved and when he lived as the old man who knew not Christ. He is now no ordinary man but a child of God the Father and co heir with Jesus our Lord. Since God is speaking to us through his son you would think people would listen and stop trying to find some meaning in the laws of Moses or the Old Testament prophets which were only a shadow of the real thing. Colossians 2:17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
Lately preachers and bible teachers have been comparing some people to King Cyrus in Isaiah 45:1 in the Old Testament, what happened to comparing him to Jesus in the New Testament? Are we not a Christian nation? Besides King Cyrus was a warrior who fought in battle alongside his army. Those being compared have never been in battle or even in the army, so why are we getting so far from the simple message of Jesus the son of God? I believe that we are like the Hebrews of old who were forever forgetting God and seeking out new gods.
There is also another trend among some Christian bible teachers and New Testament prophets in that they are now teaching about the blessings of a blood moon, or the year of Jubilee as well as the blessings associated with certain numbers from the Old Testament. So according to them the number 6 is good because God made man on the sixth day. Seven is good because God rested on the seventh day and eight is better because God sees It as a new beginning. So, every year that has these numbers is a blessing and of course 12 is even better but 13 maybe not so good.
In the New Testament everyday is a blessing because the Lord Jesus blesses every hour and everyday regardless of numbers or Old Testament feast days. 2 Corinthians 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God. The only thing you need if you want to be blessed, is to know the New Testament, but better yet is to know Jesus Christ as a person and not a religion. Knowing and following feast days or Old Testament covenants is the equivalent of not having faith in the finish work of Jesus Christ and not trusting him. Galatians 4:8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you know God--or rather are known by God--how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again? 10 You are observing special days and months and seasons and years! 11I fear for you, that somehow, I have wasted my efforts on you. This is what we have today, people wanting to go back to the slavery of the Old Testament and bible teachers gladly willing to lead them.
It is so simple people, just read what Jesus said and believe it. Keep your eyes on him and not the foolishness that is being preached for money or bible teachers who are misinformed or feel insecure if they don't come up with something new to pass around on YouTube and other apps.
Question everything you hear against New Testament doctrine and against the life of Jesus who is our role model. It's not so hard, it was never intended to be hard, in fact it is very easy, just listen and think what scripture has to say on any one topic or problem. Here is an example. Matthew 7:16-20 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (KJV)
No explanation needed here. If a person is nasty and mean spirited as well as a liar or a thief he is bringing forth bad fruit, so he is a bad tree and a bad person and not a brother. But if a person is loving and full of compassion then he is bringing forth good fruit and is a good tree. Jesus said that you will know them by their fruit. If you cannot stomach the fruit, then look and think again. In these last days people are throwing of every restraint, be very careful people.
2 Timothy 1:1-5 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
