Who Are The Children Of G-d?

In continuation of the last post, Who are the Children of G-d? Quite simply they are believers that:

-Believe in the one and only G-d, creator of Heaven, Earth and all that is within, whose name is Y'hoshua(Jesus), Yahhahveh, Yahweh
-Believe that our G-d provided himself as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins.
-Attempt to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord and repent when they fall short of G-ds expectations.
-Follow G-d's Law, not for salvation, but for relational purposes.

Most people have no problem with the first three, but balk at the last. However, what did Y'shua say in Matthew 5:17-18.

"Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled."

and Paul in Romans 13:8.

"Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another fulfills the law."

You and I fulfill the Law through the Messiah. Otherwise, let us obey the unfulfilled parts of the Law, including the Feasts.

Even Paul tells us to celebrate the feasts in II Corinthians 5:7-8.

"Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."

We attempt to obey the unfulfilled parts of the Law in order to draw closer to G-d. We don't follow the ways of the world but the ways of G-d.

As asked in the last blog entry, Children of G-d....Are you out there?


Where Are All The Children of G-d?

Recently, due to changes to the "hierarchy"[sic] of our church, Karrin and I had began a search for another group of believers, with which to worship on the sabbath. As we search, one thing continually came to the forefront. Where are the true believers, the B'nai Elohim, the Chidren of G-d, the Bridegroom of the Messiah.

As you read this, please understand that I do not put myself into an elite group. No, I am just a child of G-d desparately looking for true believers with which to commune. It is harder and harder to find them. Not to say that all that is within our small little congregation are not true believers, but it amazes me how many continue to follow traditional and false teachings because of a charasmatic individual or individuals.

At this point, most people will say, "Is really possible to understand the whole Word of G-d?". The answer is yes. The real questions are, "Are we willing to submit ourselves to the leading of the Spirit?" or "Are we lazy and let others tell us what G-ds Word says?". The latter is 2nd hand knowledge of your savior, not the true relationship our G-d wants with us.

This leads me back to the original question, "Where are the children of G-d?". Are we in the midst of what the Bible calls the "Great Falling Away" in II Thessalonians 2:3?

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first..."

So then, who are the true B'nai Elohim. Are you out there? I would love to talk to you.
