If you have ever been in a conversation with someone in which you are trying to point out sin according to Old Testament Law (such as homosexuality), then you have probably had the argument come up that if we have to keep one Old Testament Law then we have to keep them all.

That brings up a good question! How does the Old Testament Law apply to us now that we are in the age of grace? First it is important to understand that the people under Old Testament Law were under the law because they had made a covenant with God. A “Covenant” is an agreement between two parties who agree to certain terms and conditions that each side must abide by or the agreement is not binding. In a covenant among humans the two sides can bargain on the terms and conditions but in a covenant with God, God alone decides the conditions and blessings. Humans cannot change God’s covenant, but they can choose to accept or reject it.

That is a question many have asked. The answer is simple. He doesn’t! God is simply the means by which you get there. Let me explain.

Imagine this…..you are on a boat in the middle of the ocean and it sank. You and the other people on the boat with you are now looking at certain death by drowning.

Many people today struggle with understanding what God’s plan for Israel is and how he is dealing with the jewish people. The scriptures tell us that the jewish people are God’s chosen people whom he would bless and also bring blessings to the world (Genesis 12:2-3):

“I will make you into a great nation, 

and I will bless you; 

I will make your name great, 

and you will be a blessing.  

I will bless those who bless you, 

and whoever curses you I will curse; 

and all peoples on earth 

will be blessed through you.”

Many people take the scripture inMatthew 24:36 & Mark 13:32concerning the return of our Lord Jesus Christ out of context that says“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”They feel there is no way we can know so why worry about it? I have heard things such as “I am saved so I’m not going to spend my time thinking of that stuff…when it happens it will happen”! Although it is true that no one will know the exact day or hour that Jesus will return for his bride The Church, our Father in Heaven had every intention for us to know when it was upon us and about to take place! He wants us to know when it is near so we will work with urgency in reaching the lost! In fact he commanded us to watch for it and told us we would see it as it approaches:
