Authority of the Church
by D. J. Love, TSN, SBC
The Universal Roman church has admitted that they believe that their church has the authority to change God's Calendar and Laws, but what does The Eternal say? Let's first consider what Daniel saw concerning the BEAST who makes war against the Saints.
Daniel 7:23, 25
23 Thus he said, The fourth animal shall be a fourth kingdom on earth (un-HOLY Roman Empire), which shall be diverse from all the kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
25 He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the (true) saints of the Most High; and he shall Think To Change The Times And The Law; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and half a time.
So What Is The Role Of The True Body of Believers In The ETERNAL'S Plan Of Salvation? First let's examine why God always presents His True Congregation (Body of Believers) as a Virgin Woman dressed in the Purity Of White, and prepared for symbolic marriage to the Lamb of God, Messiah Yahshua.
"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain King (YHWH), who made a marriage feast for His SON,
While they went away to buy, the Bridegroom (Messiah Yahshua) came, and those who were ready went in with him to the Marriage feast, and the door was shut.
7 Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to Him (YHWH). For the Marriage of The Lamb has come, and his (The Lambs) Wife (to be) (The True Body of Believers) has made herself ready."
8 It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 He said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" He said to me, "These are true words of God."
5 Now therefore, if You (My First Wife, Israel) will indeed Obey My Voice, and Keep My Covenant (of marriage), then you shall be My Own Possession from among all peoples; for all the earth is mine;
6 and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.'......."
To those who Keep His Covenant (Marriage Vow of Obedience to YHWH's Commandments), To those who remember to Obey His Precepts.
But Peter and the apostles answered, "We Must Obey God Rather Than Men (or priests)." (Can this be the same Peter that the catholic church claims to be built on? I doubt it!)
COLOSSIANS 3:18 (dual meaning)
Wives (both physical and Spiritual), be in subjection to your husbands (both physical and Spiritual), as is fitting in the Lord.
Spiritually Obedient Children and Wives do not make changes!
