“6 But I (JESUS) say unto you, That in this place is One greater than the Temple.
7 But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.” Matthew 12:6-7
The sacrements of todays church are many and are wrong. Some of their various methods of receiving God’s Divine Grace are through water baptism, church membership, the Lord’s Supper and many, many more. Their religious doctrine is nothing more than philosophies from the vanity of man’s mind.
If they only knew what their methods of receiving Grace are, their sacraments would be forsaken and they would not condemn the guiltless…those who have not taken part of their vanities.
There is but ONE method of receiving God’s Divine Grace and that is Jesus Christ, Who is the Source, and HIS Sacrifice made for whosoever will believe, as the means by which we receive from God. Our sacraments will not do. They are as dung in the eyes of the Lord. Dead works producing fruit unto death…spiritual death.
Let it be known, there is a river – a river of life. The Blood of Christ Jesus that flowed from Calvary gives life to the Believer. It is HIS Sacrifice that paid the penalty of our sin. HIS Sacrifice that broke the power of sin. He and He alone can calm the storms. Only Jesus Christ can save the soul of the believing sinner.
Be careful not to condemn those who have not believed in the religious sacraments as you do. If you only knew what it meant. If you only knew we are not trying to gain the Grace of God…we have it and by faith in the Cross of Christ ALONE, we are simply maintaining the flow of Grace in our lives. It is a battle fought daily…it is the fight of faith. We are without a doubt determined to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
