Answer: A Yes, the great God of heaven wrote the Ten Commandments on tables of stone with His own finger.
Answer: A Because the Ten Commandment law is the standard by which God examines people in the heavenly judgment.
Answer: A Christ not only pardons repentant sinners, but He restores in them the image of God. Answer: A The devil hates the people who uphold God's law because the law is the pattern of right living. 15.A A I believe a Christian must obey God's Ten Commandments, and I am asking Jesus to help me bring my life into harmony with them. No, the Ten Commandments hang from these two commands like our 10 fingers hang from our two hands. On Tuesday, November 11th, 2014, Garth released MAN AGAINST MACHINE, his first new studio album in 13 years. Blake Shelton has been very busy lately, not only in his personal life, but his professional life as well.
Strait also posted a reaction on his socials: a€?Ita€™s a very sad day for all of us Hag fans. The legendary Merle Haggard cancelled shows in December 2015, entered the hospital for two weeks, and was diagnosed with doubleA pneumonia.

A fatherless upbringing from the age of nine just north of Bakersfield included near poverty and led to multiple run-ins with the law, a stint at San Quentin State Prison, lifelong personal battles and one of the most celebrated careers in all of music.
There are no words to describe the loss and sorrow felt within all of music with the passing of Merle Haggard.
You had what we all hope for a€“ a voice that matters and survives the ever changing trends.

Lee Brice surprised a military widow with the family truck her husband traded in before shipping out to Iraq 10 years ago. Lee managed to find the 1992 Chevy Silverado pickup, buy it, and have it shipped to Las Vegas.
When Ravella attended the ACM Party for a Cause, she thought she was there to accept a check for Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization that provides educational support to spouses and children of Americaa€™s fallen and wounded soldiers. If some self-proclaimed prophet suddenly arose and began drawing crowds with stirring messages, healing the sick, raising the dead, bringing fire from heaven, and revealing knowledge of your personal secrets - would you believe in him or her? Answer: A They will remain until God's people are all unified, mature Christians--which, of course, will be at the end of time.
Answer: A God warns us of false Christs and false prophets who will be so extremely convincing that they will deceive all except the very elect of God.
Answer: A In Study Guide 23, we discovered that Jesus gives a six-point description of His end-time church. Answer: A Since a prophet is sometimes called a seer (someone who can see into the future), the eyes would best represent the gift of prophecy. Because God normally sends prophets to His church only when it is keeping His commandments.
The way to make the gift of prophecy meaningful is to study it for yourself and follow it prayerfully so Jesus can guide and preserve you and prepare you for His coming. Answer: A Because He loved us so deeply, He was willing to see His only Son suffer and die rather than be separated from you and me for eternity.
I cannot pay that penalty without losing eternal life, because if I died for my sins, I could not resurrect myself. Answer: A By asking for, believing in, and accepting the great gift of God, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Answer: A As Christ is received into my heart, He destroys the old sinful self and actually changes me into a new spiritual creation. Many feel that the Christian life will not be a happy one because of restrictions and self-denial. Answer: A Misguided men introduced other forms of baptism in direct contradiction of God's Word. Answer: A It represents the believer following Christ into His death, burial, and resurrection. Answer: A This is like saying a baby should never try to walk until certain that he will never slip and fall. A A Jesus asks you to be baptized by immersion as a symbol that your sins have been washed away. Old enough to understand the difference between wrongdoing and right-doing, and to make an intelligent decision to surrender to Christ and follow Him. In Matthew 28:19, we are told to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. 15.A A Jesus asks you to be baptized by immersion as a symbol that your sins have been washed away.
It's absolutely true that violating any part of God's law always brings negative consequences. As a guide for happy, abundant living.a€?God created us to enjoy happiness, peace, long life, contentment, accomplishment, and all the other great blessings for which our hearts long. Jesus specifically asserted that He did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill (or keep) it. Like a 6-year-old boy who made his own ruler, measured himself, and told his mother that he was 12 feet tall, our own standards are never safe.
As repentant sinners come to Jesus, He restores in them the image of God, bringing them into harmony with His law through the power of His indwelling presence. And if you decide to follow the pattern outlined in God's law, you will feel the devil's wrath upon you at once and with all fury.
All of this ceremony and ritual foreshadowed the cross and ended at Christ's death, as God had intended.
As a guide for happy, abundant living.God created us to enjoy happiness, peace, long life, contentment, accomplishment, and all the other great blessings for which our hearts long. But today, like so many in country music and beyond, hea€™s saddened by the death of yet another music legend. He last played in East Lansing, MI on April 9-10, 1996, at MSU-Breslin Center and sold 28,393 tickets. It has been certified platinum by the RIAA, making Garth once again the #1-selling solo artist in US history with 136 million sold. The Country Music Hall of Famer had been in failing health for quite some time, diagnosed with double pneumonia in December, which led to the cancellation of several dates, including a two-night stand at the Ryman Auditorium. He was a true icon of the music world and ita€™s hard to believe we wona€™t be able to see him anymore. Haggard's hits spanned three decades and included "Swingin' Doors," "The Bottle Let Me Down," "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive," "Sing Me Back Home," "Okie From Muskogee," "The Fightin' Side Of Me," "If We Make It Through December," "That's The Way Love Goes," "Footlights," "My Favorite Memory," "Are The Good Times Really Over (I Wish A Buck Was Still Silver)," "Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Star" and many more. Saturday night at the ACM Festival for a cause, he invited Ginger and her sons onstage after singing his signature song, and gave them the keys.
The long story will have to come later, but for now: Last summer during a Folds concert a€¦ Lee sang his song a€?I Drive Your Trucka€™ right before I spoke. The perfecting of God's end-time church is not possible if any of these five gifts is missing.
Although a prophet's message may sometimes edify the public, the primary purpose of prophecy is to serve the church. Here are the brief details:a€?a€?God Calls a Young Womana€?God's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance. However, you can know that she (1) meets the tests of a prophet, (2) did the work of a prophet, and that (3) God's true end-time church must have a prophet.
Further, He clearly states that spiritual prosperity hinges upon believing His prophets (2 Chronicles 20:20).
When a church does not have a prophet to counsel, guide, and lead it back to Jesus and the Bible, the people will flounder in a disoriented manner (Psalms 74:9) and eventually perish. In 1 Corinthians 12:28 it is listed as second in importance of all the gifts, while the gift of tongues is listed last. Here are the brief details:God Calls a Young WomanGod's end-time church began to form in the early 1840s and desperately needed guidance. This spiritual union will grow stronger and sweeter with time, as long as love continues to grow. Christ paid the full penalty for our transgressions, and those who accept Him in faith owe no works of penance for cleansing, but are already considered "washed" in the blood of the Lamb! Please notice that Philip, a leader in the early church, baptized the treasurer of Ethiopia by immersion precisely as John baptized Jesus. So, today, God is well pleased when a person is baptized by immersion in harmony with His command.
No one should be baptized unless he (1) knows the truth of God, (2) believes it, (3) has repented, and (4) has experienced conversion. The Bible shows in Acts 10:44-48 that water baptism is necessary, even when the baptism of the Holy Spirit has preceded it.


Obviously you are not ready to be buried in the baptismal waters, because the old life of sin is not dead. The person who is baptized thus publicly acknowledges that he has taken Christ's name (Christian), just as a bride publicly announces the taking of her husband's name at the time of the wedding.
As crime overruns our cities, doesn't it make sense that for peace and safety we need to obey the laws of the land? It is impossible to commit a sin that is not condemned by at least one of God's Ten Commandments.
God's law is the road map that points out the right paths to follow in order to find this true, supreme happiness.
If the law could have been changed, God would have immediately made that change when Adam and Eve sinned instead of sending His Son to die in the sinner's behalf to pay the penalty of the broken law. Instead of doing away with the law, Jesus magnified it (Isaiah 42:21) as the perfect guide for right living. The Ten Commandment law is the guide we must use in finding our way to God and holy living. I cannot know whether I am a sinner unless I look carefully into the perfect standard--God's law-mirror.
Thus He redeemed all from the curse of the law (death) and in its place provided eternal life.
Love to God makes keeping the first four commandments (which concern God) a pleasure, and love toward our neighbour makes keeping the last six (which concern our neighbour) a joy.
To lead men to Christ--where they find righteousness--is the goal, purpose, or end of the law. The Bible speaks of an evil conscience, a defiled conscience, and a seared conscience--none of which is safe.
A But unlike almost EVERY other tribute we've seen he didn't decide to cover "Purple Rain".
Seal urged Urban to go, but the country singer recoiled when he found out what time Prince would take the stage. A Jake Owen found out that someone was doing that to his female fans and did something about it!
Today he has sold over 51,000 tickets for Van Andel ArenaA in Grand Rapids and tickets are still selling!
A The carA went airborne, hit a tree then came to rest on its side in a ditch filled with water.A  Jaws of Life had to be called in. He also donated $40,000 to Folds of Honor, a non-profit that gives educational support to the families of the fallen and the wounded. My kids and I just stood there in disbelief when Lee asked us to look at the huge teletron screen. Your ultimate destiny just might be tied directly to your ability to distinguish between true and false prophets. So, in harmony with His promise of Amos 3:7, God then called a young woman named Ellen Harmon to be His prophetess. It is so perceptive and relevant that it was once plagiarized by the minister of education of a certain nation, who published it under his own name. She said on the subject of intelligence that a person's IQ could be increased--long before experts agreed. And they meet the Bible standard for visions as outlined in the answer to question seven of this Study Guide. These verses verify that when God's people disregard His commandments, He sends no prophet. He would have given His life for you or me even if there had been no other sinner to redeem. Joyfully I begin to experience, for the first time, glorious freedom from guilt and condemnation. What you do as a Christian is the spontaneous outflowing of another Person's life within you. With all past sins covered by His atoning death, my present and future obedience is rooted in His victorious life within me. The saints are identified in the Bible as having four characteristics: (1) keeping the commandments, (2) trusting the blood of the Lamb, (3) sharing their faith with others, and (4) choosing to die rather than to sin.
Because Jesus is the Creator and Author of all life, the life He laid down was equivalent to the lives of all people who would ever live.
It is true that as God grants us grace through faith, He also gives us the desire and strength to obey Him. He might even be immersed after the example of Jesus, but he would simply come up a wet sinner instead of a dry one--still without faith, without repentance, without a new heart. It would be a criminal act for a funeral director to bury someone who is not dead and equally serious for a minister to baptize one whose old sinful life is not dead. Well, this same principle applies with God's law - the Ten Commandments - in our own lives too!
But this was impossible, because the commandments are not laws in the sense of rules or regulations that have been enacted. If I ignore even one of the commandments, I am neglecting part of the divine pattern, or blueprint. Salvation comes only through grace, as a free gift from Jesus Christ, and we receive this gift by faith, not by works. Millions who have cast out devils, prophesied, and done many wonderful works in Jesus' name will be lost (Matthew 7:21-23) because they did not bother to check their lives with His great law-pattern. God could not change His law, but He made a blessed provision through Jesus to change the sinner so he can measure up to that law. It forgives him, but it does not give him freedom to break one single law on the statute books. It regulated the priesthood, sacrifices, rituals, meat and drink offerings, etc., all of which foreshadowed the cross. But it is shocking and astounding to hear religious leaders denying the binding claims of the Ten Commandments while at the same time upholding the traditions of men.
Love fulfills the law by taking away the drudgery and by making law-keeping a delight (Psalms 40:8). The only possible way for a person to know if he is sinning is for him to carefully check his life by the mirror of God's law.
Crystal balls, palm reading, leaf deciphering, astrology, and talking with the supposed spirits of the dead are not God's ways of communicating with people. She said in 1905 that cancer is a germ (or virus), which medical science began to endorse only in the 1950s. God knows when prophets are needed to wake people up, warn them, and turn them to Jesus and His Word. Jesus solemnly warns His end-time church of the danger of blindness and urges them to anoint their eyes with heavenly eyesalve so they will be able to see (Revelation 3:17, 18). In other words, His sinless life is credited to my account so I can be counted as righteous.
In fact, because I love Him so deeply for changing my life, I go beyond the requirements of the Ten Commandments.
These are the true marks of the person who is in love with Christ and who has made a life commitment to follow Him.
When love disappears, the home is held together only by the mechanical, forced duty of the marriage law.
Conversing with Him in prayer deepens the devotion and opens my mind to a more thrilling and intimate knowledge of His concern for me.
Not only did atonement have to be made by One whose life could stand for all other created beings, but the One who died the atoning death had to be able to rise from that death.
The sacred ordinance of baptism has been changed and made of little consequence during truth's hazardous journey through the centuries.
Then comes burial in the water and resurrection from the watery grave to a new life in Christ. This contamination and burden is so devastating to the human personality that people will go to almost any length to achieve a sense of forgiveness and cleansing.
No age level is specified in the Bible, because children have different levels of experience and understanding.
Identifying Jesus as the Christ and Messiah was present truth for the people of that day; therefore, it was crucial for them to be baptized in His name.
To protect me from danger and tragedy.a€?God's law is like a strong cage at the zoo, which protects us from fierce, destructive animals. They are revealed principles of God's holy character that will always be true as long as God exists.a€?a€?Notice on the chart below that God and His law have the same characteristics.
God's law could not be involved here, for Paul spoke of it as holy, just, and good many years after the cross (Romans 7:7, 12).
Under the Holy Spirit's ministration, through Christ, the law is written upon the heart (Hebrews 8:10).

The Scriptures teach plainly that all who become involved with such things are an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:12). She had been injured in an accident at age nine and had to quit school with only three years of formal education. She also directed people's attention to the Bible prophecies for the end time--especially Jesus' three-point message for the world today (Revelation 14:6-14)--and urged that they share these messages of hope quickly and worldwide. So when God's remnant church for the end time emerged keeping His commandments, it was time for a prophet.
His death is accepted by God as full payment for all my past wrongs, and by accepting what He did, as a gift, I am taken into God's own family as His child.
Being born of God, as a new creature, you want to obey Him because His life has become a part of your life. Daily I search the Bible for indications of His will, trying to find more little ways of expressing my love to Him. Likewise, when the Christian ceases to love Christ supremely, his religion exists only as restrictive compliance to a set of rules. When raised from the water, the eyes open and the candidate begins breathing again and mingles with friends--a complete likeness of resurrection. Many have been driven to the psychiatrist's couch, where human beings earnestly attempt to assist other human beings.

Since so much is at stake, you should take a few minutes to seriously consider your responsibility. It protects us from impurity, falsehood, murder, idolatry, theft, and many other evils that destroy life, peace, and happiness. The Bible says that when we knowingly break any command of God, we are sinning (James 4:17), because we have refused His will for us. A rule posted on a school bulletin board becomes effective only when it enters a student's heart.

He sent a prophet (John the Baptist) to prepare people for Jesus' first coming (Mark 1:1-8). Heeding the words of God's prophet will help His end-time remnant people clearly understand the Bible and will prevent uncertainty and confusion.

You've undoubtedly heard all this before, but are you sure you really understand what it's all about? Just as I received Him by faith and found His promises all-sufficient, I keep on trusting Him for every future need, and He never lets me down. In order to administer the benefits of the atonement to all who would apply for it in faith.
Obedience--the service and allegiance of love--is the true test of discipleship and a natural fruit of faith in Jesus Christ.
God has a plan that can totally wash all your sins away and supercharge your character - preposterous?
The great difference between Christianity and every other religion is simply the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
We begin the Christian life as babies, rather than adults, and God judges us on our attitude and the trend of our life, rather than on a few slips and falls that we may experience as immature Christians. Misguided men in the church years ago decreed that unbaptized babies are lost, but this is scripturally untrue. Combining the testimonies of Matthew with the book of Acts, we baptize people in the name of the Father, and the Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. The Ten Commandment law is God's character in written form--written so we can comprehend it. Christ's ministration of the law is effective because He transfers the law to the heart of the Christian.
Her book on Christian living, Steps to Christ, has been translated into more than 150 languages and dialects. And because He knows that my sins can lead only to misery and death, He wants to save me from my sins. It defames God as an unjust tyrant who would destroy innocent infants who died, simply because unworthy parents failed to have baptism administered. It is folly for this undisciplined generation to presume that it can break the laws of the living God with impunity. Then keeping the law becomes a delight and a joyful way of living because the Christian has true love for both God and man. Special Note: The eternal principles of God's law are written deep in every person's nature by the God who created us. She insisted that her aim and work were to point the church and its members to the Bible--which was to be its creed--and to Jesus' free gift of righteousness. Help God's people understand end-time prophecies which, verified by everyday news events, suddenly take on new meaning.a€?F. Help God's people understand end-time prophecies which, verified by everyday news events, suddenly take on new meaning.F. To keep these three vital acts alive in the minds of Christians until the end of time, the Lord instituted baptism by immersion as a memorial. Burial in the water of baptism symbolizes the burial of the ugly corpse of the old sinful life. Jesus came to show us what the law (which is the pattern for holy living) looked like when made up in human form. Ellen fulfilled every test of a prophet mentioned in this Study Guide.a€?a€?Her Pen Name and Booksa€?Ellen married James White, a clergyman, and wrote under the name Ellen G.

Without the help of a prophet, many will be lost through backsliding, sleeping spiritually, and being too busy. If I fail to listen to and test prophets, I am not basing my faith upon the Bible, which mandates doing so. Ellen fulfilled every test of a prophet mentioned in this Study Guide.Her Pen Name and BooksEllen married James White, a clergyman, and wrote under the name Ellen G. Help God's people sense the certainty of Jesus' soon return and the end of the world.For a deepening love for Jesus, a vibrant new excitement about the Bible, and a fresh understanding of Bible prophecies--listen to God's end-time prophet. The ordinance is of utmost importance because it publicly represents the most stupendous provisions ever made for people. This means, of course, that you cannot find true peace unless you are willing to live in harmony with your inner nature, upon which God has written these principles. It is infinitely worse to hold to the unscriptural concept that babies are lost eternally because careless parents failed to do their duty. Remember, Jesus says He will bless His end-time church with most-helpful prophetic messages.
Did you know the cross is mentioned 28 times in the Bible, but baptism is mentioned 97 times? Adopts us as His own sons and daughters.a€?a€?Certainly no truly converted person would want to delay baptism, which publicly pays tribute to Jesus for working all these miracles.

When we choose to ignore them, the result is always tension, unrest, and tragedy--just as ignoring the rules for safe driving leads to serious trouble. Her books, read worldwide, give inspired counsel on health, education, temperance, the Christian home, parenting, publishing and writing, assisting the needy, stewardship, evangelism, Christian living, and more. It must be pretty important then, and no wonder, because it signifies a new life with the haunting, sinful past buried and forgotten forever.
Baptism is a symbol of true conversion, and unless conversion precedes baptism, the ceremony is meaningless.
