What Are The Commandments Of God?

Hi T____,

Remember Christ’s warning that many are called but few are chosen? Now read this verse in Revelation.

Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Being ‘called’ is necessary, but not sufficient. Being ‘chosen’ is also absolutely necessary, but we also must be ‘faithful’

Joh 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

The “testimony of Jesus Christ” is not the testimony of Moses or else “what need would there be for another priesthood not after Aaron but Melchisedek?”

“There being a change of priesthood there is also a change of the law.”

Heb 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (f or under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

That ‘testimony’ and that ‘change also of the law’ is found in Mat 5-7. It is a “changed law.” It is the “testimony of Jesus Christ,” and even a “piece of the new agrees not with the old.”

Luk 5:36 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was [ taken] out of the new agreeth not with the old.
Luk 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. Luk 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. [ Gal. 3:23-4:1- The “schoolmaster,” the “tutors and governors will always be need to “bring us to Christ,” right through the millenium. ” But after that faith is come…” and 1Ti 1:9]]
Luk 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

But you can’t see that difference or “change” and so, sure enough, you “having drunk the old wine” along with the rest of the world, still say “the old is better.”

So Christ rests his case.
