There is coming a falling away. We are saddened that so many have accepted a return to the doctrines of Mystery Babylon the Great and her daughters. The Sabbath is a “perpetual covenant” (Exodus 31:12-17). God gave the “Everlasting Covenant” to Adam in the garden, but He specifically mentioned it to Abraham (Genesis 17:1-7). Then the Book of Hebrews revealed that Jesus came to “shed the blood of the everlasting covenant” (Hebrews 13:20-21).
Since the Sabbath was part of that “Everlasting Covenant,” the Sabbath could never be changed by God the Father or Jesus because Jesus “is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). The entire Book of Galatians was written to offset this false teaching. Galatians 2:16 is the theme of the Book. It makes Acts 15:24 clear. “Knowing that a man is NOT justified [made right with the Father] BY THE WORKS [sacrificial system of animals] OF THE LAW, but [we are made right] BY THE FAITH [in the one sacrifice] of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be JUSTIFIED [made right] by the faith [of the one sacrifice] of Christ, AND NOT BY THE WORKS [offering of animal sacrifices] OF THE LAW: for by the works [offering of animal sacrifices] of the law shall NO flesh be justified” (Galatians 2:16). In other words, WHERE DOES YOUR HOPE FOR FORGIVENESS COME FROM – Christ’s one sacrifice or a continual offering of animals? Look what Timothy wrote: “Now the Spirit speaks expressly that in the LATTER TIMES some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking LIES in
hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;…” (I Timothy 4:1-2). Paul struggled against “false” teachers all during his ministry. For some reason, people were easy prey for these men that taught falsely. It is no different today. Men and women without God’s Holy Spirit, but think they have it, bring in seemingly logical teachings that are proven so wrong by “rightly” dividing the scripture. Satan and his angels must use someone to deceive others. They bring in doctrines of their own mind rather than the TRUTH the Holy Spirit will lead a true believer into (John 16:13). They cannot distinguish between the “law that was added” – animal sacrifices – and God’s “Everlasting Covenant.” As a result, “false” teachers twist scriptures that many unskilled in the word of God cannot explain or prove wrong. God inspired that He placed a piece of truth here and another there, and you have to put them together to get full understanding (Isaiah 28:9-13).God bless those who remain faithful to His truth.
