mikehill4jesus “Moral Law is not to be broken or even modified”
4th January 2017 (8.57) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
No teaching should be placed before us without us learning and understanding the 100% perfect teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of God.
Who but the Lord Jesus Christ can give this promise to you today?
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
Moral Law is not to be broken or even modified.
To Love Jesus is to truly Obey Jesus!

Charles Finney: This law is infinitely valuable in the ends which it aims to secure.
It is naturally impossible for moral agents, Humans, to be happy unless they are virtuous, and virtue consists in obeying this eternal law.
All virtue consists in perfect love–this is virtue in all moral agents.
Now, in no further than this law is conformed to can there be happiness amongst men.
Virtue is the basis of happiness, properly so called, in God or in anybody else.
This law, then, aims to secure and promote all that creates happiness, as the condition of the happiness of God and of his creatures.
I suppose that the things which I am affirming this morning will be admitted by all who hear me as self-evident truth; the mind of every moral agent must affirm them to be true, by a law of our own nature we affirm it, that they are true, that they must be true; for example, benevolence was proper and becoming in God, therefore obligatory upon him; and the opposite course would have been wrong – mind, I am not supposing that such a thing ever was or ever will be; but I am only supposing that if such a thing were possible, that God was not a good but a wicked being. Hence every moral agent will affirm that the moral law is a law which God imposed upon himself, and that it did not originate in his own arbitrary will – that its obligations can never be dispensed with in any case, neither repealed nor altered in any particular.
Again: every moral agent [Human Beings], also, must affirm that this law must be of infinite value, because it aims to secure an infinitely valuable end.
MORAL ACTION: strictly an act of the will only.
MORAL AGENCY consists in the possession of the powers, or faculties, and susceptibilities of a moral agent and is universally a condition of moral obligation. The attributes of moral agency are intellect, sensibility, and free-will.
MORAL DEPRAVITY: Moral depravity is the depravity of free-will, not of the faculty itself, but of its free action. It consists in a violation of moral law. Depravity of the will, as a faculty, is, or would be, physical, and not moral depravity. It would be depravity of substance, and not of free, responsible choice. Moral depravity is depravity of choice. It is a choice at variance with moral law, moral right. It is synonymous with sin or sinfulness. It is moral depravity, because it consists in a violation of moral law, and because it has moral character.
MORAL GOVERNMENT: the declaration and administration of moral law. It is the government of free will by motives as distinguished from the government of substance by force.
MORAL GOVERNMENT, GROUNDS OF: Moral government is indispensable to the highest well-being of the universe of moral agents. The universe is dependent upon this as a means of securing the highest good. This dependence is a good and sufficient reason for the existence of moral government.
MORAL GOVERNMENT, END OF: to promote the highest good, or blessedness of the universe.
MORAL LAW: that rule to which moral agents ought to conform all their voluntary actions, and is enforced by sanctions equal to the value of the precept.
MORAL PERFECTION: conformity to moral obligation.
To be chosen for Salvation, you have to be as the Lord Jesus describes in John 14:23!
There is no religion, Christian or any Other, that can do what the Lord Jesus proclaimed He can do. Revelation 1:18 ‘I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.’
WHICH GROUP DO YOUR CHURCH LEADERS BELONG TO?
The Saving Gospel of Jesus that the people in John 14:23 apply to themselves and the Evildoers in John 14:24 either cannot or will not see and understand.

In my testimony you will see how over time I was influenced by the Gospel of Jesus until I chose to love the Lord Jesus. I also describe those I have observed to be showing signs of rejecting the Gospel. They are unable to produce a testimony of their own walk with God – before and after salvation. Though for some, it might be the case of they are not yet able to form in their mind what is happening to them.
