THE NEW TESTAMENT
Romans|2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
Romans|2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law,
“do by nature the things contained in the law”,
these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Romans|2:15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
The important thing about this scripture is it tells us that through doing the things Jesus told us to do, we will “do”, or keep, the laws of the Old Testament. This scripture also gives us a way to check to see if we are in the will of God. As we read the Old Testament we will see the things that we are to be doing in New Testament through the Spirit. If we are not doing the things that are contained in the law, we are not operating in the Spirit.
So what are some of the things that we are to be doing? Take for example the meats we eat. The New Testament scripture that pertains to this is in the book of Colossians;
Colossians|2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
Colossians|2:21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
Colossians|2:22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
Colossians|2:23 Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
This scripture tells us that if we do not eat unclean meats, we will be using wisdom in the care of our body. This is the love of God to us in showing us in the Old Testament that these animals are unclean for a reason. When we eat these unclean foods the poisons created in the bodies of these animals go into our body and cause our body to react in a way that affects our health. These animals eat dead and rotten meat, dung, or animal waste, and their habits of being dirty are in their nature. Example, a female deer, when a doe has a baby deer, to keep the baby deer safe the female deer will eat the waste of the baby deer to hid the scent of the baby deer from other animals that would kill it if they smelled the scent of the baby deer.
Another example is the rabbit. Rabbits have a liver that can catch a sickness that will cause spots on their liver that will make humans sick. And swine are the dirtiest animals in the world, they will eat anything, even their own young. And dogs will eat their own vomit. The list goes on and on of why we are not to eat these animals and the reason that we do is we have believed a lie from Satan and the ministry has preached it, and we have presumed it is true.
Another reason that these animals are unclean is in the Spirit theses animals are manifestations of demons that do things to us in our life. In the natural unclean animals are a sign of demons in a persons home. Jesus uses dogs and swine to denote people who will hurt us.
Matthew|7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. So how are we to know they are dogs and swine? We know by the things they are doing in their life. As we study scripture we will come across scriptures that will tell us how to know a spiritual dog and a spiritual swine.
Psalms|22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
Psalms|22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
Psalms|22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. (The people that killed Jesus were religious people that were wicked. Teachers and lawyers of the law that perverted judgement to meet their own wants. In this scripture God calls them dogs.)
Isaiah|56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
Isaiah|56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
Isaiah|56:12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant. (These dogs are greedy and will only do things for their own gain, they also are drunkards.)
Jeremiah|15:1 Then said the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth.
Jeremiah|15:2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the LORD; Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity.
Jeremiah|15:3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.
Jeremiah|15:4 And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.
( Dogs, fowl, and beasts of the field are naturual and spiritual. Theses three things will come against them that do not do the will of God.)
Philippians|3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
Philippians|3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Philippians|3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. (These dogs have not the Holy Ghost and do not believe in the gifts of the Spirit.)
Jude|1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Jude|1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
Jude|1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
Jude|1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, (Praying in tongues!)
Jude|1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Jesus also warned us in John 10:10 about preachers that are hirelngs. They take money to preach, and because they have not received the revelation that we are not to take money to preach and we are we work a job like everybody else, they depend on the money from their followers to live.
John|10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
John|10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
John|10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
John|10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
John|10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
John|10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
John|10:7 Then said Jesus unto them “again”, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
John|10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
John|10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
John|10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John|10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John|10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
John|10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
John|10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
Ephesians|4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
Ephesians|4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
2 Thessalonians|3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
2 Thessalonians|3:7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
2 Thessalonians|3:8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought (worked) with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
2 Thessalonians|3:9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
2 Thessalonians|3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
2 Thessalonians|3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
2 Thessalonians|3:12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
2 Thessalonians|3:13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
2 Thessalonians|3:14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
Revelation|22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Revelation|22:14 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.
Revelation|22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Isaiah|65:1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am
found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
Isaiah|65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a
rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;
Isaiah|65:3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
Isaiah|65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
Isaiah|65:5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
(A self-righteous spirit.)
Isaiah|66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
Isaiah|66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
Isaiah|66:3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Isaiah|66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
Isaiah|66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
Isaiah|66:6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.
Isaiah|66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
Isaiah|66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
Isaiah|66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
Isaiah|66:10 Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:
Isaiah|66:11 That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
Isaiah|66:12 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
Isaiah|66:13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
Isaiah|66:14 And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
Isaiah|66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
Isaiah|66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
Isaiah|66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
Isaiah|66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
Isaiah|66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
Isaiah|66:20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an
offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.
Isaiah|66:21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.
Isaiah|66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
Isaiah|66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
Isaiah|66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
The word of God tells us that the whole creation declares the glory of God. To say it another way, everything we see in the natural tells us something about the spiritual.
Psalms|19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. (Everything God created reveals to us something about God!)
Psalms|19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. ( The day and night in the natural is a type and shadow of the spiritual, Day and Night is spiritual and shows us good and evil. Them in the Day know God and His will, them in the Night do not know God nor His will, or know it but refuse to do it.)
Psalms|19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psalms|19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, (sun-Son) (Everything God created on the Earth is showing us something about Heaven and His world and Himself.!)
