is there not many angels that proceed out of the letter and seem to be angels of light
because of the letter they seem that the message you hear may be from the Lord ,but is not, but is the works of the devil.(Spiritwalker)
This is amazing indeed. As Larry told you, we were just a short while ago (today) saying this very same thing. I am so glad to see you and Lolady coming in here with this great insight and teaching. Praise God for this.
I have wondered my own self how the 10 commandments could be death; of satan; even though I could clearly see that it was and have been teaching this a good many years. But still, since God wrote them with his fingers, it is hard to see that they could be death; of Satan.
But God has revealed it to me. It came with just the same Scripture you quote. Satan is transformed as an angel of light; his ministers also are transformed as ministers of light. How?
Because they say truth ~~~ but the problem is they make it LAW. Law is death. Law demands every transgression be punished.
Remember, ~~once a LYING SPIRIT went forth from God's presence, with God's permission to be a LYING SPIRIT IN THE MOUTH OF AHABS' PROPHETS, to get Ahab to the battle so he could be killed.
See God let that lying spirit go forth from Him and deceive Ahab. Many people claim this proves God is not true nor his word. But they are in darkness. If people desire evil; idols, satan, sin, God will let them have it. He will let lying spirits go out and deceive these people.
That is exactly what happened with Moses and the Isarelites. Moses, a man in grace, prayed for his people to find Grace; but they could not. So God told him to go up that Mt. and get that law. The people were deathly AFRAID of God's presence which came down on that Mt. Why?
As Lolady said, they did not have grace, so they feared God. That is law. Fear. Grace, the Holy Ghost causes us to love His presence; crave it. But the law people fear and dispise that presence of God. That is why they dispise the Holy Ghost and speaking in tongues. That is why they fight this.
They said don't let God speak anymore to us. So Moses said o.k. God said they want sin and evil, I will give them law that I may destroy them. Moses knew if they were under law, God would destroy them. He had to.
He could give them no mercy; for under Law is no mercy. God wanted to destroy this evil nation. See, Once he told Moses to get out of his way so he could destroy them all. But Moses interceeded for them and God listened to Moses. For He saw Moses only; He saw grace when he looked at Moses. Under Grace, God does NOT SEE OUR SIN. WHAT A BLESSED PLACE TO BE IN. JO IS WHITE IN HIS SIGHT; FOR I AM HID IN CHRIST JESUS; AND HIS GRACE COVERS ME AND GOD SEEs ME AS A MEMBER OF THE BODY OF JESUS; SO GOD SEES ME AS PURE WHITE AND CLEAN; NO SIN.
Under law, God sees only you as a sinner and you are doomed to hell. For you rejected the atonement of Jesus to put you under his Grace.
So since the Isralites wanted idols, sin, and rebellion, God gave them Satan. God gave the a lying spirit. God gave them law; God gave them laws which were not good, and by which they could not live.
God let Satan, that tree of the knowledge of good and evil be given to them; this is LAW.
Good and evil. What is that? Just what spiritwalker said;;;;; and evil angel transforming himself as light. For he (Satan) said, Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, body and mind.........
WHAT?? satan said that? Yes that is law.
Love your neighbor as yourself. Satan told them that. Law. What? yes.
Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy..... this is evil. Yes. Why? Because it is LAW.
Thou shalt not steal. This is evil Yes. Why? Because it is LAW.
Now does this mean it is bad to Love God? or your neighbor? or keep Sabbath? or not steal....... is all this evil. No it is good. Then what is the answer?
Listen...... God hates LAW. God loves GRACE.
But if one insists on being under law,,,,, then one must be punished for every transgression. You can't hid your sins from God; not even your thoughts.
Every thought had better be pure, holy and clean.
But Satan transformed himself as an angel of LIGHT by saying, Love the Lord your God; Love your neighbor. Who could guess that it was damning? Why or how is it damning? Because he made it be LAW.
That is how it is GOOD AND EVIL. It is the right thing to do.... but if it is by law, then it is evil.
If I need a LAW TELLING ME I HAD BETTER LOVE GOD OR BE KILLED, THEN THIS IS NOT GOD'S WAY. IF I NEED A LAW TELLING ME I HAD BETTER NOT STEAL,,, THEN THIS IS NOT PLEASING TO GOD;
IF I HAVE TO HAVE A LAW TELLING ME TO LOVE AND TREAT MY NEIGHBOR RIGHT , THEN IT IS NOT GOOD IN ME; BUT I AM DOING IT OUT OF FEAR BECAUSE OF LAW.
If it is law, and I fail even one time, then I must die for my sin. God hates that. God loves mercy. He wants to give us mercy.
See ,when that law bunch brought that woman taken in adultry to Jesus, they knew and said to him, THE LAW SAID TO KILL HER; BUT WHAT DO YOU SAY?
See, they already knew that Jesus HATED THAT LAW; HE LOVED GRACE AND MERCY; HE DID NOT WANT TO DESTROY ANYONE; BUT BY LAW IT HAD TO BE DONE.
HE HAD TO KILL THIS WOMAN IF HE LOOKED AT HER BY THE LAW; SO HE WROTE DOWN THEIR OWN SINS BY WHICH THEY ALSO NEEDED TO BE KILLED, AND THEY WALKED AWAY; LEAVING HIM FREE TO GIVE HER MERCY AND FORGIVENESS.
Under that Law he could not do that. He would have had to kill her. God hates this. So when Satan says love God; but it is law, then he takes you into damnation.
But if I love God out of Grace; not law, then it is life. Paul said give, but not my constraint; constraint is a must; = law.
We are under no law to give. God does not want it under law. He said he loves a cheerful giver. in other words, someone who gives because they truly WANT TO; OUT OF LOVE. NOT BECAUSE A LAW SAID YOU HAD BETTER DO THIS OR BE KILLED.
MAY GOD HELP YOU ALL TO GET THIS TRUTH.
IF IT IS LAW, THEN IT IS NOT LOVE; IF IT IS LAW, THEN YOU MUST BE KILLED IF YOU DISOBEY EVEN ONE TIME. ONE THING. ONE POINT.
GOD DOES NOT WISH TO DESTROY YOU; BUT IF YOU INSIST ON REJECTING JESUS' GRACE AND FORGIVENESS AND HIS BLOOD, THEN HE HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO DESTROY YOU BY LAW.
