The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, that’s the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.

“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?” (Galatians 3:1-3 KJV)
Now would anybody care to guess why we opened up this week’s sermonet – “Life Through The Flesh And Blood Of Jesus!” – with that particular Scripture? Well it’s only after our last message on “the law” (Thou Shalt Obey The Law…But Not That Law! (11/7/04)) that we’re going to apply Galatians chapter 3 to a few present-day “foolish Galatians”! And just who might they be? Just who is it, you might ask, that’s been soooo “mesmerized and hypnotized by the bewitching powers of Satan” that they’re actually trusting in their “works of the law” to save them?
We’ll the answer to that question lies in the following e-mail received in response to our last sermonet on the law. Because, without a doubt, one of those “mesmerized” and “hypnotized” by the “bewitching powers of Satan” is Sister Karla! In fact to put it bluntly, Sister Karla is getting her “fleshly high” by “shooting up” the law! In other words Sister Karla is all “wrapped-up and tangled-up” in “legalism” to the point of being addicted to it!

Subject: Re: Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice!
I will reply to this in two parts because I don't have time to read your article in its entirety and look up what I need to find in the bible to prove my point-honestly I really don't understand why you ask my opinion at all-really but since you asked I will tell you what I think of your friends dream I will reply to the catholic doctrine [the Rapture] that you still hold dear to your heart later. To me I think you probably are correct in saying that the palm tree represents judgment, and if the cow represents famine that is to bring about judgment then it is the famine of the word of God that has left hearts empty, because that is where the Lord has stored his commandments for us to live by--famine of the word of God has in fact eaten up the Sabbath because all the false teachers refuse to see the importance of following the laws (or as you and Plato put it Bad people spend their time trying to go around the laws that govern Good people or "peculiar people") that we as the adopted seed of Abraham should follow-making the law of God "Torah" to none effect "forgotten" that's why we have to be gently reminded that one particular commandment by God writing in stone that first word of the fourth commandment "Remember" that's just my first glance opinion-keep in mind that I haven't had the time to look up any of the symbolism I'm just going off what you have already found. I would however like to talk to your friend he sounds very interesting, how did you come to meet him anyway-just curious was it sort of a chance thing as our meeting online?
So that was what Sister Karla had to say about our sermonet Thou Shalt Obey The Law…But Not That Law! And of course the reason I asked Sister Karla for her opinion in the first place is so that you can see just how deceptive this “law addiction” can really be. In fact what Sister Karla had to say about Yonnie’s vision is absolutely true – “the famine of the word of God that has left hearts empty, because that is where the Lord has stored his commandments for us to live by--famine of the word of God has in fact eaten up the Sabbath” – that is IF you leave off the very last part of what Sister Karla had to say: “because all the false teachers refuse to see the importance of following the laws”.
Because you see it’s that last part of what Sister Karla said that likewise “eats up” God’s “Truth” that she spoke in the first part. I mean without a doubt it is the Word of God (the Command/Instruction of God), and our obedience to His Word (the Command/Instruction of God), that brings about the Sabbath in our lives (Shabbot; the day of rest)! Karla is absolutely right by saying “when we don’t eat (consume through obedience) the Word of God, the lack of God’s Word in our hearts will eat up the Sabbath.” However this “Word of God” that Karla is unknowingly speaking of is not “the law” of the Old Testament but “The Law” of the New Testament as discussed in our last message. Jesus the Christ is “The Word” who speaks “The Law” that we must “eat” in order to fulfil the “Sabbath”! And here’s just a few Scriptures to prove it:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. And the Word was made flesh [Christ Jesus], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested...by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe. If ye love me [Jesus Christ], keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. ” (John 1:1, John 1:14, John 1:17, Galatians 2:16, Romans 10:4, Romans 3:21-22, Galatians 5:18, and John 14:15-17 KJV)
Jesus the Christ is “The Word” who speaks “The Law” that we must “eat” in order to fulfil the “Sabbath”! And after having read all those Scriptures concerning God’s “New Law in Christ Jesus” is there any wonder why Paul’s question to the Galatians also applies (so fittingly I might add) to Sister Karla?: “Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”
I mean get real Karla! Snap out of that demonic trance! The Old Testament law will not save you because it can not save you: “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” (Romans 3:19-20 KJV)
In fact while we’re on the subject of Karla’s demonic trance, maybe it’s time to explain why Paul said what he said in verse 1 of Galatians chapter 3: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth?”
Because you see Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ, who traveled the country winning souls to Christ and building churches for Christ. However, it was this one particular church in Galatia that wasn’t falling in line with God’s “true salvation plan” as Paul had taught. And the reason they weren’t following it was because of a few Jewish “trouble-makers” – Judaisers – who had kinda like snuck in the church back door with another “salvation plan” that was definitely not of God.
And just what might you ask were they teaching? Well these “low-life” Judaisers were teaching that the Gentile Believers must keep the law of Moses in order to be a true Christian. But of course seeing how the law of Moses was designed by God to bring souls to Christ (in repentance) but not save them, it was this “law teaching” by the Judaisers that was damning many souls in the church of Galatia to Hell! So is there any wonder why Paul spoke out in such gut-wrenching anguish: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth?”
In fact when you get down to the basics, the one very good reason for us writing this sermonet is to cry out in anguish “O foolish Karla, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth?”
So who are the Judaisers in Karla’s life? Just who are these “low-life apostates” perverting and distorting the Pure Word of God? Well the answer can be found in the following e-mail to me from Sister Karla:
Sent: Wed, 10 Sep 2003 12:01:50 -0700
Subject: eternal salvation
check out this site especially the book about the mark of the beast
So did you catch it? Did you see the “low-life” Judaisers in that e-mail from Sister Karla? Well the name of this particular apostate is the “Remnant Of God” church, and they are any thing but God’s “remnant”. In fact all those truly believing in what’s being taught through their Web site will very shortly have to make the choice between losing their head or taking the mark of the beast. Because just as the Remnant Of God teaches, all those following their teaching will, without a shadow of a doubt, be a part of the Great Tribulation Period! And even though they are being taught that it’s God’s Divine Plan that all Christians go through the Tribulation with unbelievers, it’s right about the time all “Tribulation Hell” breaks loose that quite a few of these “Remnants of God” folks will realize they’re not God’s remnant after all. It’s right about then that a few of them will prayerfully grab hold of the stark reality that they’ve been “duped by the Devil” and “left behind”!!!
Now in order to help you see how Sister Karla got sucked into the “legalistic witchcraft” of the “Remnant Of God”, let me share with you just one more of her e-mails:

What makes you think that I'm SDA I'm just someone that's never been affiliated with any denomination, that's not my website, I'm searching for the truth so if you have it please give it to me. I read the bible and research everything that I find in the web sites, I'm new to it all if there's something you think I should know let me know, I was just researching how to fast on your site thought there are a lot of interesting things on the remnant site. I'm definitely not SDA though, I do not believe for one second that Ellen G White was a prophet she doesn't meet the biblical requirements and she was a plagiarist, she's been wrong, and the book that one of my neighbors brought over to me when I started trying to keep the Sabbath looked to me a lot like something a catholic would have with all the pictures of that which is in heaven, breaking commandment number two; so I didn't even read it just closed it up and gave it back, but I do know that I've been through a lot over the years, and I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I've been praying for him to lead me to a church for over two years, but I guess there's none here that aren't polluted because I've yet to be lead to one. the fruits of all denominations seem to me to be pretty rotten, guess what I'm doing is researching them all and pulling out what is usable from them all. I do my bible study alone, because as soon as I really turned to Christ everyone around me turned from me, seems very strange to me but the devil does seem to attack you anyway he can.I believe that the Sabbath is very important seeing as it is in the commandments we are to keep, and the catholic church did change the official day of worship from sat to sun I think that could very well be the mark of the beast. I would love to here what you think on the subject.I have no idea what denomination you come from but I would love to hear your testimony to Jesus Christ if you would like to share with me. there's another site that has a lot of interesting info in it I'm pretty sure they aren't SDA either. www.lightministries.com/webdoc68.htm well god bless you I was wondering if you would respond. My name is Karla by the way nice to meet you Bruce.
So what do you think about that? Well, just in case you didn’t know it, the SDA that Sister Karla was talking about is none other than the “Seventh Day Adventist” who were founded on the teachings of Ellen White. And the one thing that those SDA’s believe in is the “law of Moses”, with the fourth commandment being their “drug of choice” that satisfies their “law addiction”:
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” (Exodus 20:8 KJV)
In other words what the SDA’s believe is that if you don’t go to church on Saturday you’ve broken God’s Law #4 (Exodus 20:8), and the curse of Exodus 31:14 is upon your head:
“Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” (Exodus 31:14-15 KJV)
And even though Sister Karla claims not to be associated with either the “SDA” or the writings of Ellen White in any way, her association with the “Remnant Of God” is probably 100 times worse. Because you see the “ROG” is a spin-off of the “SDA”, and, among the many perverted things they teach, they too believe that going to church on Saturday fulfills the requirements of God’s second law.
So you see the point that I’m trying to make is that they’re bunches of folks out there like Karla, who’ve been “bewitched” into believing that obedience to “the Sabbath law” will make people holy…but I’m here to tell you that it just ain’t so! Because the pure and simple of it is that the “Word of God” is not the “Mosaic law”, and the “day of rest” (the Sabbath) is not a particular “day of the week”. And before this sermonet is over and done with we’re going to prove a part of Sister Karla’s statement to be true: “the famine of the word of God that has left hearts empty, because that is where the Lord has stored his commandments for us to live by--famine of the word of God has in fact eaten up the Sabbath.”
Now where do we start? Well how about where we left off in Thou Shalt Obey The Law…But Not That Law! Because by the time we finished interpreting Yonnie’s vision – the “palm tree, heart, Torah scroll, skinny cow, and Shabbat” – we had discovered that the law cannot give life: “…I mean do you “see” the truth behind that “bloodless heart” hanging like “ripe fruit” from the palms of a tall stately palm tree while vainly pumping air that gives no life? And how about that scrawny, undernourished, emaciated cow hopelessly trying to gain strength by “eating” Shabbat under the cloud of a Torah scroll?”
Well that’s what we said that God said about “legalism” (obedience to the Mosaic law only brings death) and here’s just a few more Scriptures that back it up:
“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” (Romans 7:6 and 2 Colossians 3:6 KJV)
So without a doubt, the law kills but the Spirit gives Life. And it was in that same sermonet of “Thou Shalt Obey The Law…But Not That Law!” that we went on to tell just how this “True Life” can come into the Believer through the following Scripture:
“Verily, verily, I [Jesus] say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.” (John 6:47-56 KJV)
Now, as it relates to eternal life, just how in the world does anybody “eat the Flesh of Jesus and drink His Blood”? Could it possibly be through the Roman Catholic Mass? I don’t think so! I mean we’ve already shot that Roman Catholic “belief” full of holes in our sermonet series “Vampires In The Church!” So just what was it that Jesus was saying? What did Jesus actually mean when He said “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day”?
Well the answer to that question has everything to do with the “last day” that Jesus was speaking of in verse 54. Because you see the Sabbath [Shabbat] is the “last day” of “God’s seven (7) day week” in which the Believer will be resurrected into “everlasting life” after having “worked” the previous six (6) days. In fact it’s that same last day that the Lord was referring to in Exodus 31:15: “Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”
However, this “last day” that God Almighty commanded we “do no work on” is not the “seventh day” that Sister Karla and so many other SDA “Sabbath keepers” worship. Because when you take it back to the original Hebrew you’ll find that the word for “work” (melachah) has a completely different meaning altogether. In fact taking it from a Jewish source, the following is what the “Judaism 101” Web site has to say about the “melachah” type of work (http://www.jewfaq.org/shabbat.htm):
“Of course, no discussion of Shabbat would be complete without a discussion of the work that is forbidden on Shabbat. The Torah does not prohibit "work" in the 20th century English sense of the word. The Torah prohibits "melachah". The word melachah is rarely used in scripture outside of the context of Shabbat and holiday restrictions. The only other repeated use of the word is in the discussion of the building of the sanctuary and its vessels in the wilderness. Exodus Ch. 31, 35-38. Notably, the Shabbat restrictions are reiterated during this discussion (Ex. 31:13), thus we can infer that the work of creating the sanctuary had to be stopped for Shabbat. From this, the rabbis concluded that the work prohibited on Shabbat is the same as the work of creating the sanctuary. They found 39 categories of forbidden acts, all of which are types of work that were needed to build the sanctuary…”
Now isn’t it interesting how the misinterpretation of that one little old word “work” has caused so many to err from the faith (O foolish Galatians)? However, seeing how we have now presented this simple Truth for Sister Karla, just maybe she will be able to receive the rest of our message:
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Colossians 6:19 KJV)
Since the day that sin entered all of mankind, the human body (the Temple of God) has required much “melachah” work. You see God’s gloriously designed Holy Temple was trashed through the fall of one man Adam, but the Almighty (bless be He) put “The Plan” in place that would allow a total “rebuild” of His Temple to it’s original Perfect Design. In fact when it comes to God’s reconstruction of His Holy Temple (the human body), there are many “types and shadows” proving it to be a “seven-step” process.
I mean from the biggest to the smallest, God “works” (melachah) through the number “seven” to purify those things contaminated by sin. Take for instance the first chapter of the first book of the Holy Bible. In verse one (1) God created the heaven and earth, and He created them perfect. However, by the time verse number two (#2) rolls around the earth has become “without form and void”, trashed by the sin of Satan. But by moving on into verse three we can see the awesome re-constructive work (melachah) of God begin through the very simple but powerful words “And God said”!!! This is the way God does it, and this is the way He continued to do it for six consecutive days. God rebuilt His gloriously designed earth, and then on day number “seven” He rested from his work (melachah).
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:3 KJV)
So that’s looking at God’s re-constructive work (melachah) on a grand scale, but now let’s look at it on a much smaller one. Because when it comes to mankind, the smallest part of the human body that maintains it’s God-designed triune nature of “spirit, soul, and body” is the living cell. And, amazingly enough, it’s every seven (7) years that every cell within the human body is regenerated. In other words the human body rebuilds itself, cell by cell, every seven (7) years…either for the Glory of God or the glory of Satan!
And it’s through this same Truth that we want to continue our discussion. Because you see if the human who owns the body in which the cells are being regenerated is not walking in total obedience to every Word that proceedeth from the Mouth of the Father, then that same person is not rebuilding his or her temple in the Spirit of God but in the spirit of Satan. And as it relates to Sister Karla’s problem with “legalism”, the “every Word that proceedeth from the Mouth of the Father” is not the “Mosaic law” but the Person Jesus Christ (“The Law”) through the Holy Spirit:
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:23-26 KJV)
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:” (John 15:26 KJV)
You see before Jesus – through His own Body – defeated sin on the Cross, the Holy Spirit (The Comforter) could not enter into the sin-filled temple of the human body. And without the Holy Spirit indwelling the human, the “body temple” could not be rebuilt to it’s original glorious state. Because you see it’s only through the work (melachah) of the Holy Spirit that the necessary rebuilding process can be carried out at the cellular level so that the human can inherit everlasting life:
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:3-8 KJV)
So just how does a man, woman, boy, or girl become born again? How do we as human beings receive God’s promise of everlasting life by becoming a new creature in Christ? Well it all goes back to our sermonet series entitled How Do You Want Your Fire…Now Or Later? (6/25/00) Because it was in that very long-running series that we really dug down deep into the subject of “the human body and sin!” And what the Lord showed us was not only how sin enters the human’s “spirit/soul/body” at the cellular level, but how God gets it back out through His “water and fire baptism”. In the plain and simple, becoming “born again” is the process of “eating the Flesh of Jesus and drinking His Blood” through a “walk of obedience” to “His Word” as communicated through the Holy Spirit (The Comforter).
And having said that let’s take a closer look at how Jesus described this “born again” process to Nicodemus: “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
So what is this Wind that blows wherever it chooses to blow, and we hear it’s Sound (Voice) but cannot tell from where it comes or where it goes? Well the Wind is the Breath of God, the Holy Spirit (The Comforter), and it comes from the Son of God (Jesus - The Word) Who speaks the Commandments of the Father in Heaven. And this Word from the Father is not a Word that brings about eternal death (the Mosaic law) but a Word that brings about Life everlasting through the Flesh and Blood of Jesus. In fact it’s this same special Word that proceedeth from the Mouth of the Father (His Breath - His Light) that will go into the darkest depths of the human “sin-filled flesh and soul”, literally destroying each and every cell that’s dedicated to serving Satan. And you see once these “evil cells” have been destroyed, they will be reborn (born again) as replacement cells dedicated to serving the Almighty God.
In effect, it’s through obedience to the Father’s special Word (the Wind; His Breath, His Light) that the Believer in Christ Jesus will actually take on the Spirit of Jesus. Because you see it’s these newly created (born again) “cells in Christ” that will make up the “flesh and blood” of the Believer. In other words, it’s these Spirit-filled cells in the Believer that fulfills Jesus’ command to take on (eat) His Flesh and Blood. And it’s right about this point in the process that the “Sabbath” occurs. The evil temple of Satan within the human body has been destroyed, and God’s Holy Temple has been resurrected! And on the seventh day the Believer rest, having completed the work of rebuilding a portion of The Temple.
Now that’s the way this “born again” thing is all done, so why don’t more people “just do it”? Well it all goes back to the Words of Jesus concerning the “born again” experience, and the Word “thereof” in particular: “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof…” Because you see it’s this Word “thereof” that carries the following very intimidating meaning:
Thereof (G846) [autos] - From the particle au (perhaps akin to the base of G109 through the idea of a baffling wind; backward); the reflexive pronoun self…
So do you see what I mean? Well probably not, so what do you say we check out what Webster’s 1828 Dictionary has to say about the “baffling” word:
Baffling - Eluding by shifts, and turns, or by stratagem; defeating; confounding. A baffling wind, among seamen, is one that frequently shifts, from one point to another.
You see a “baffling wind” is one that takes us places where we really hadn’t planned on going. It’s a Wind that we as humans can’t predict, and it will most certainly take us places that our “flesh” doesn’t want to go. In fact one of the best examples comes from our Great Example Jesus. Because it was immediately after Jesus received the Holy Spirit that this “baffling Wind” directed Him into the wilderness for the sole purpose of “fasting and fighting” the Devil:
“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.” (Mat 3:16-17, and 4:1-3 KJV)
And having said all that we can now complete this message through God’s very detailed description of becoming “born again” – rebuilding God’s Temple – through the Holy Spirit’s “Seven (7) Step Process”:
“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” (Isaiah 11:1-4 KJV)
You see the way this “Seven Step Process” works is that God’s Word/Breath/Light to the Believer is actually a “designer law” in itself for that individual. God sends down His Light in the form of a commandment to the Believer, and, if obeyed by the Believer, this same Word of Light will “judge” the Believer’s sin. Because this Light will go into the darkest areas of the Believer’s sin-filled soul, rooting out the darkness and replacing it with His glorious Light. However, this process only comes about by first hearing God’s Word, and then obeying it…and regardless of the pain encountered:
Step #1 – God sends down His Breath/Light to the Believer: the Spirit of the Lord.
Step #2 – God’s Light becomes a “baffling” thought (voice) in the mind of the Believer: the Spirit of Wisdom.
Step #3 – God’s Light becomes a clear command in the mind of the Believer: the Spirit of Understanding.
Step #4 – God’s Light encourages the Believer to obey His command even though the flesh is unwilling: the Spirit of Counsel.
Step #5 – God’s Light strengthens the Believer to war against the flesh and obey His command: the Spirit of Might.
Step #6 – God’s Light goes into the darkness of the sinful soul as the Believer “suffers” in obedience to His command: the Spirit of Knowledge.
Step #7 – God’s Light replaces the darkness in the Believer’s soul. The Believer has now received judgment for his/her sin and is found to be righteous: the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.
So now can you see the Sabbath in step #7? The “Spirit of the Fear of the Lord” is the end results of the Temple having been reconstructed in Christ, and it’s likewise the time to cease from Temple construction. And just so you’ll know, the part about “And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD” has everything to do with receiving the “Breath of God”. Because you see the Words “quick understanding” mean “the understanding that results from the sense of smell”. I mean, after all, God breathed the “Breath of Life” in the nose of Adam!
And now for the sake of Sister Karla’s “law addiction”, we have the following Scripture from the Lord for her:
“Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:19-29 KJV)
You see “the Mosaic law” that Sister Karla has become “addicted to” should have ended in Christ Jesus who fulfilled “the law” by becoming the “Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world.” The Mosaic law should have only been the schoolmaster to lead Sister Karla to Christ, because it certainly wasn’t designed to become her Christ. The Mosaic law cannot save Sister Karla and it will not save Sister Karla because it only condemns Sister Karla, the sinner, to Hell. If Sister Karla will only receive this Word from God, Jesus Christ will become the end of “the law” of sacrifices, types, rituals, and outward religion…which even includes her Saturday worship! If Sister Karla will only receive this Word from God she’ll be able to keep the “real Sabbath” each and every day of her “everlasting life”:
“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7:6)
"There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit." (Romans 8:1-5)
So the question still remains: Will Sister Karla turn away from her drug of choice – the law – and become addicted to Jesus? I certainly hope and pray that she does, because the following curse will certainly apply to her life if she doesn’t:
“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” (Galatians 5:4 KJV)
In closing, please don’t take any wooden nickels from Satan! There is only One Salvation Plan but many, many counterfeits!!! By all means practice “Sabbath keeping”, but just make sure you do it by Keeping The Faith In Jesus!!!

After having posted this sermonet on the FMHCCI Website, the Lord instructed me to send out Karla and "all her friends" an invitation to read it. Well the following is the invitation, and then following that invitation is the scorching reply from one of her friends...who just so happened to be the Judiazed himself; Mr. "Remnant Of God":

Dear Sister Karla,
The title of this week's sermonet is "Life Through The Flesh And Blood Of Jesus!" And, just as we promised, it's God's special message to "Sister Karla". You can read it at http://www.fmh-child.org/S11.28.04.html. In fact to kinda clue you in to it's contents, the following is a sample:
"So did you catch it? Did you see the “low-life” Judaisers in that e-mail from Sister Karla? Well the name of this particular apostate is the “Remnant Of God” church, and they are any thing but God’s “remnant”. In fact all those truly believing in what’s being taught through their Web site will very shortly have to make the choice between losing their head or taking the mark of the beast. Because just as the Remnant Of God teaches, all those following their teaching will, without a shadow of a doubt, be a part of the Great Tribulation Period! And even though they are being taught that it’s God’s Divine Plan that all Christians go through the Tribulation with unbelievers, it’s right about the time all “Tribulation Hell” breaks loose that quite a few of these “Remnants of God” folks will realize they’re not God’s remnant after all. It’s right about then that a few of them will prayerfully grab hold of the stark reality that they’ve been “duped by the Devil” and “left behind”!!!"
In the Lord Jesus Christ,
Bruce and Sandy

Subject: Re: Who Bewitched Karla?
To all those that received this unsolicited hatefilled attack in email I would like to echo the Word of God regarding people that use hateful words and insults. (Bruce and Sandy used the term "low life" and "judiazers" in their email, as well as share hate in its context throughout.)
James 1:26 says plainly that, "If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain."
Using Biblical jurisprudence, Bruce and Sandy's "UNBRIDLED" tongues prove their religion vain. Jesus Christ would NEVER use such hate when trying to share His Father's love with those in need of Truth. I did not read Bruce and Sandy's web page nor do I intend to because after seeing their hatefilled email, I have all the evidence I need regarding the fruits they display. Jesus is plain when He says we shall know them by their fruits. Such hate cannot be a part of a Holy Spirit indwelt Christian, for the Lord Jesus would never allow it to come forth from the lips of a bridled tongue. To do so is to mock the Lord Jesus and take His holy name in vain! Another reason I see no cause to view their webpage is because of the Biblical counsel on how to deal with such people found in the first book of Timothy...
1 Timothy 6:3-5, "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself."
Bruce and Sandy used VERY unwholesome words in this email and not the words of Jesus, as well as unsound teachings and evil surmisings. I forgive them as I should as a man of God. But I must withdraw myself from them and their corrupt minds as inspired counsel suggests. For the Word of God confirms this perfectly. You cannot "argue" or "debate" the truth with those that seek to brow beat and sling hatred in their defense, as well as twist the Word to allow sin to appear as holy. The Word of God is gentle and loving as well as firm and commanding at the same time, but never do we see this Word to be mean, hateful, and unkind. How can anyone expect to learn anything from people that mix Christianity with such hatred? This is not of Jesus Christ in any way shape or form! The Word is plain in James 3:10 where it says, "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be."
As for debating the Law of God...
Titus 3:9, "..avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain." Ecclesiastes 12:13, "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." 1 John 2:4, "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
And no, we do not keep the Law of God to GET saved, we keep the Law of God because we ARE saved. THAT is the fruit Christ spoke of. That is the basis of JUDGMENT! For it is written in James 2:10-12 that we are JUDGED BY HOW WE KEEP THE LAW. Anyone can say they are believers, but that does not make them Heaven bound. For the "devils believe and tremble." -James 2:19. Satan will not gain Heaven yet he believes who Christ truly is, that is why He attacks Him. Adam and Eve were not kicked out of the Garden for disbelief, for they walked with Jesus in the cool of the day. (See Genesis 3:8) What got them kicked out was disobedience.
For ALL rebuttals concerning the Law of God see this page... http://www.remnantofgod.org/The-Law.htm Absolutely every single rebuttal concerning the Law of God is addressed and the Word of God is used to prove they lie when they say you need not keep it. For it is written that ONLY THOSE that keep the Law will gain Heaven. It says in Revelation 22:14 that, "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."
The devil wants ALL to ignore the Law because it is the MIRROR that shows the soul it needs a Saviour. For those that say we need not keep it, they lie, they twist Scripture, and they manipulate the Truth to ok the sin they have already embraced.
Bruce and Sandy, please do not email me again as I will not allow my Lord to be mocked, or my dear sister in Christ to be ridiculed for her prophesied "peculiar" faith. This unsolicited attack on my faith, and Karla's, is an open confirmation that we are walking as Christ declared His sheep would do in these last days. Your fruits prove both of you to be of the World, and your hatred and very graphic anger confirm that as well. Jesus did say we will be hated for doing as He suggests. And so we are.
Use common sense folks. Did Karla harm anyone for keeping the Law of God? Did Karla or myself send out hate mail to Bruce and Sandy because of their faith? No we have not. Then why such hatred from Bruce and Sandy?
John 15:18, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you."
In Christ I remain
