Holy Bible Is The Immutable Living Word Of The Eternal God.
The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.
Here's the reason, shocking but enlightening truth: The
Bible Is Used To Deceive
And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies:
they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
Ezekiel 20:26 ……
that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.
A Message From Peter James
Let No Man Judge You
Colossians 2:16 ¶ Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink,
or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
We can see that all these things mentioned are simply a shadow of things to come,
as it is stated in verse 17.
When Christ establishes His kingdom on earth, what we eat, drink, or observe,
such as Sabbaths and New Moons will have only the very slightest resemblance
to what those who try to pay attention to these things experience today.
You can tell very little about a person from their shadow.
Similarly the difference between what we now do so inadequately will be of the same
order of magnitude to what we will do in the future.
It is absolutely imperative that we understand that All the commandments of the
Eternal God, have a single objective.
They are to enable us to be blessed, to prosper and be in health.
It is very simple.
By prosper I mean to have the work of our hands blessed.
The first thing that we are told is do not be judged ‘in meat’.
When the word ‘meat’ is used in the bible it is often referring to ‘food’.
It can actually be fruit, etc.
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree,
in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
In spite of what pseudo science would have you believe about the lie of evolution.
It was imperative that the Eternal God who created, and maintains the whole creation,
would tell His creation what was good for food, and what was not.
If He did not do this, in a very short time man would cease to exist.
Therefore He had to tell His inexperienced new creation what was edible and what was not.
In Colossians we are not given any specifics about any particular ‘meat’ or ‘drink’.
We are being told not to let others judge us ‘in meat or in drink’.
Although throughout the bible we are told a great deal about what we should eat,
there is very little told us about what we should drink, except for water, even living water.
In the many verses referring to drink, the majority of times it is referring to drinking water,
then wine, then strong drink.
One of the things that this verse can be telling us is that we should be moderate in what
we eat and what we drink, so that we do not cause offence to non-believers, who brand us
as gluttons, and drunkards.
Christ was called a glutton and a drunk.
Luke 7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say,
Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!
We are also told that we can expect the same treatment as was dished out to Jesus.
1) Let us first consider the matter of meat, for those who think that it is referring
to animal flesh.
When Christ was on earth, did He ever declare that His Birth, His Death, His Resurrection,
or His Ascension changed the physiology, which is the physical make up,
of any creature on the earth, making them different from the time of their creation?
Did any of the apostles do this?
Did the finely formed fins of the fish get changed?
Did the wonderfully made light weight almost hollow bones of the birds get changed?
Did the strong bones of the ox get changed?
Did the flesh of all these creatures under go change?
Did the scavengers and predators of the land and the sea, undergo changes so that
that they no longer carried out their created purpose?
Did the pig cease to be a living rubbish bin?
Did oysters, mussels, and such like stop their created purpose of being living water purifiers,
The list goes on and on.
The answer is ‘NO’.
It therefore follows that the animals, birds, and fish were essentially the very same
as the day that they were created, after their kind, and they are all carrying out
their God ordained functions. There were no loose ends in the creation.
Every single creature and thing had a specific place and function.
Everything was meticulously balanced, right down to the smallest detail.
As God made man, it does not require a degree in science to work out that besides
being God, He is best equipped to tell man what He should eat and drink.
He wanted only the very best for the pinnacle of his creation.
We use the lame excuse that these laws about meat and Sabbaths, only apply to the ‘Jews’.
In case we did not notice, it is not only the Jews that eat!
However, in our rebellion, which has now become normal, and indeed universal,
we have declared that which has not been defined as food, not only to be food,
but to be delicacies.
There are endless TV programs and articles stating that we really need to spice
up our sex lives by eating aphrodisiacs, such as oysters and eels.
Others show us how to deliciously cook and serve a variety of things
which do not classify as food.
We are in such ignorance that we are not even aware that the laws were given to the
entire nation of Israel and not just to a single tribe.
We have not figured out the anatomy of the Jew and the Gentile is exactly the same.
Poison does not distinguish between the various races.
What is toxic to the Jew is certainly toxic to the Gentile.
We seem to be unaware that the bible is written here a little there a little.
Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line,
line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Because we have been blinded to the fact, we have fallen backward, been broken,
snared and taken.
Isaiah 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept,
precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little;
that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
When you take this as a base and then add how all our food, water and even the air
which we breathe has been polluted, it is a wonder that anyone is alive today.
Eradicating all things from our diet that are not declared to be food from our diet,
will cure many of the ills which beset us. If we then try to avoid all the contaminants
in the food, drink, cleaning agents etc., our health will dramatically improve.
The vast majority of Doctors, have no idea about the issue of clean and unclean foods.
A long time ago when my brother was very seriously ill, he was making a reasonable
recovery, when he took a dramatic turn for the worse. His doctor walked into the
ward in the hospital. He did not go near him. He looked at him and said,
you had pork for lunch didn’t you. My brother said yes.
You have to admit that was quite a diagnosis.
I have worked with a lady who actually hallucinated from eating pork.
From the abundance of scriptures this verse cannot mean that we can now eat
anything that we can put into our mouths.
Other verses which are distorted to support, the eat anything lie, are dealt with elsewhere
on the website www.peterjamesx.com.
2) Did Christ ever claim that the blessing attached to the seventh day had been moved
to the first day?
Did any of the apostles explain that this had happened?
Do we have any history that confirms either of these two points for the first 200 years AD?
The answer is ‘NO’.
Holy Days, New Moons and Sabbaths are specific periods of time, that cannot be changed,
simply because we literally do not have the physical capacity to change them.
We are told precisely when the Holy Days are.
We cannot make the New Moon appear at a time other than the scheduled time of the New Moon.
The Sabbath, is the seventh day.
Seven can never be made into another number.
If by some sort of manipulation you were able to do this, then it would no longer be 7.
It is really quite simple.
If you do not think of the Sabbath as a joy and a blessing, much less observe it, you sin.
I have explained this in the video about the Law And The Festivals.
Is there any penalty for ignoring the Sabbaths?
Of course there is.
You suffer physically in a variety of ways, as the body is pushed beyond its design limits.
The window of blessings passes you by.
Of course you can rest on another day, but that day has no blessing attached to it.
Once missed, time cannot be recalled, therefore the attendant blessings
of the Sabbath are completely lost forever, once the Sabbath has passed.
The result is that all sorts of illnesses, and all sorts of medication are tried to annul the penalty
of Sabbath breaking.
The very same applies to the 7th year land Sabbath.
The penalty for ignoring the land Sabbath is poor crops, plant diseases, pests, etc.
Of course we can try to get around this by using more fertilizer and more pesticides.
The net result is that the depletion and destruction of the soil is speeded up.
Is the Old Covenant just filled with lots of commandments in order to see if we can
survive a complicated obstacle course, and if we fail we are condemned to hell?
The answer is ‘NO’.
All the commandments are for our personal and universal benefit.
The Eternal God is not a respecter of persons.
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said,
Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
When we are told that the desire of the Lord is that we prosper and be in health,
He means it. This is the health and wealth gospel which is preached today worldwide.
Health and Prosperity requires obedience.
That is what all the laws, statutes and commandments are all about.
Numbers 14:41 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment
of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.
Deuteronomy 29:9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them,
that ye may prosper in all that ye do.
Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe
to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee:
turn not from it to the right hand or to the left,
that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
We need to be very clear in our minds that what is required is not an intellectual
understanding, but rather the practical application of what we are told, in our
Furthermore, if we are not obedient believers, but rather intellectual proud, superior,
unforgiving ‘Christians’, we will be encouraging non-believers to judge us,
and we will be bringing the name of Christ into disrepute, and causing others to stumble.
The sad fact is that there are relatively very few genuine obedient believers today.
To prosper and be in health is what the Eternal God wants for each one of us.
Sickness is not from God period.
It needs to be crystal clear in our consciousness, that the Eternal God will not break
His laws to accommodate us.
We are the ones who will have to make dramatic changes to our lifestyles,
in order to enjoy the blessings that the Eternal God wants to bestow on us.
If you are someone who is suffering, and everything else has failed why not make
the necessary changes and put the Eternal God to the test?
If we are found to be wanting, that is to put ourselves into a position where
we can be judged, it is clear that we will not be blessed.
If your life does not reflect something that others would like to emulate from what
they see and experience in your life, they will correctly ask what is the point of what
you are doing? Why do I want to be a ‘sad’ person just like you?
Just telling them about a glorious future, will not cut any ice.
3) So what does it mean, let no man judge you?
It means conduct yourself in such a manner that no one can find fault
with what you are doing.
It has absolutely nothing to do with the doing away with laws that directly
affect our health and well being.
In my writings and videos, I am always referring to the Eternal God.
There is a reason.
I am making it very clear that I am distancing myself from the various other gods,
which are no gods, and are worshipped.
We can add the comment from Prince Charles who says that he wants to be the defender
President Bush says that all religions pray to the same God.
We should not be upset by either of these statements.
For a change President Bush told the truth.
Does my statement shock you?
Both of these men, were stating in public very clearly, whom they,
and all the world’s religions serve.
Out of their own mouths they told us that they worshipped the god of this world
I certainly do not think that was the intention.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which
believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.
Note the word god has a small ‘g’
Satan is the god of this world.
I am saying that the God whom I worship is Eternal.
Therefore when He attaches the word ‘My’ to anything, that also makes it Eternal.
We are told by the Eternal God, that the laws, statues and Sabbaths are His.
He says My Laws, My Statues, My Sabbaths, My Assemblies.
He then told the priests that they should judge matters by My Judgments.
Man cannot break any of God’s laws either physical or spiritual.
It is impossible.
Man can disobey, or he might not conform to the law, but what will be broken is the man,
and not the law. Therefore you disregard God’s words at your personal peril,
and it will be painful, and you can even end up spiritually dead.
Every part of an air plane has to conform to the laws of physics which govern
the performance of each specific part. If a critical part fails, the plane will crash.
A non critical part can be an annoyance and an inconvenience.
If we only understood this simple fact, our lives and our world would be an entirely
different place, even a happy and enjoyable place, unlike the sad, and sick situation
which now threatens our very existence.
We have to realize that there is a difference between the holy and the profane,
and the clean and the unclean.
Ezekiel 44: 23 And they shall teach my people the difference between
the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it
according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes
in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.
If I were to tell you to make sure that you drive carefully, we have many cameras in our
are and many officials waiting to prosecute you, don’t let anyone have to judge you about
your driving. Does it mean that the traffic laws in my area have been ‘done away with’,
or rather does it mean that if you are unfortunate enough to get pulled up,
that you might be ‘done away with’?
It means take care, be cautious, pay attention in order to keep out of trouble.
Unfortunately those who have lied to, and brain washed the ‘ Christian’ masses,
have told them that the harsh laws of the vindictive merciless God of the Old Testament
are no longer applicable. They fail to tell those very same people that the God
of the Old Testament is none other than the very same Jesus Christ of the New Testament.
Most cannot tell their members because they do not know it themselves!
John 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
This fact alone makes it quite clear that Christ had to keep the words of the Old Testament,
because they were His words. If He did not keep them He would have been a liar,
a God who is confused, and does not know what He is doing.
The reality is that He said ‘I change not’.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Some erroneously say that Christ and the apostles did not keep the Sabbath.
That is not only an outright lie.
These people have neither read and understood the 4 gospels or the book of Acts.
If Christ broke a single commandment, we are in dire straights,
because it means that we do not have a Saviour, because He was not a perfect sacrifice.
Therefore we might as well all rush out and destroy our world,
and everyone and everything on it.
4) Is it, that if it were possible, and we meticulously obeyed all the commandments
in the bible, we would be saved, and even go to ‘heaven’?
The answer is ‘NO’.
Salvation is a gift it cannot be earned.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
Some like to say a free gift, but a gift by definition is free.
If you have to pay any kind of cost whatsoever, it does not qualify as a gift.
I must mention that regarding having a permanent home in heaven,
that is not taught in the entire bible. Rather we are told that Christ is returning
to the earth, and the meek will inherit the earth.
Does this mean that those who are not meek are the ones who will be in heaven?
Psalms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves
in the abundance of peace.
Christ also repeated these words directly in:
Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
5) Are some of the ordinances of the Old Covenant no longer applicable?
The answer is ‘YES’.
6) Which ordinances are no longer applicable?
The answer is that all the ordinances which had to do with the sacrificing of animals,
and the upkeep of the temple, are no longer required.
All the animal sacrifices were types of the sacrifice of Christ, therefore when He came,
and gave himself as a perfect sacrifice, no further sacrifices were necessary.
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself
for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body
of Jesus Christ once for all.
As the temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. all the ordinances pertaining to the temple
could no longer be applied. Many are aware that in these end times, there is a plan
to build another temple in Jerusalem. This temple just like the nation called Israel
is not of God, neither will any new temple.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the
Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1 Corinthians 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Genuine believers are the temple of God.
The Eternal God has told us that He expects us to be assets, and not liabilities.
The Temple Of God, the Warrior Bride of Christ, the Manchild overcomers,
refers to the very same group of people, who are assets in the hands of Christ,
as they listen to and obey Him.
To be commandment keepers is just not enough.
This is explained in ‘The Woman, The Manchild and the Remnant’, of Revelation Chapter 12.
I have previously stated that the short comings of the ‘Church’ are mentioned
in Revelation chapters 2 & 3.
In addition, I have now been shown how one can be a commandment keeper, and still sadly
be part of the Remnant, which is the worst of the three options of Revelation Chapter 12.
It all depends on what and where is your sticking point.
What is the hurdle that hinders you.
As stated many times we must accept that we have all been deceived as stated
in Revelation 12:9. We are being delivered out of deception is a process.
We can all look back at the temple ordinances in the Old Testament, and there we can
see how meticulous everything down to the smallest detail was.
We need to emulate this by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and not dead works.
7) Should we pay attention to the Old and New Testament commands?
The answer is ‘YES’.
8) Why should we do this in this modern age of the 21st century ?
The answer is because they have been given to us as a blessing for our own good.
These commands and blessings are not bound by a specific time.
It is really simple, to disregard them is to suffer needlessly.
We have already explained this.
We can see the conclusion of the matter if we ignore the commands, laws,
statutes and judgments of the Eternal.
Isaiah 24: 1 ¶ Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste,
and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant,
so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer,
so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury,
so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled:
for the LORD hath spoken this word.
4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away,
the haughty people of the earth do languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof;
because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance,
broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate:
therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
Finally we will look at what some deem to be supporting verses for eating anything
and doing away with the Sabbaths.
Colossians 2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world,
why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
A careless reading of these verses will certainly link it to the verses which we have
discussed. However, we need to understand that there are two sets of ordinances mentioned.
We explained at length that the ordinances in Colossians 2:16, were ordinances of God.
The ordinances, commandments, doctrines and rudiments mentioned in verses 20 & 22,
are clearly stated to be commandments and doctrines of men, and rudiments and
ordinances of the world.
Christ condemned these things.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
The true believer should not get involved with these worldly practices.
You cannot be a believer and be involved with these worldly practices.
The Jews have many customs that are quite unbelievable.
Special ‘elaborate ‘Kosher’ procedures, and other intricate customs.
Catholics get involved with not eating meat on Fridays (theoretically).
Then there is vegetarianism, which can be demonic. (Not always)
Then there is Easter and Christmas and Halloween.
The wearing of crosses and the ‘Star of David’, which is occult.
It is impossible to sanitize Satanic or occult symbols.
We have been clearly told not to follow the ways of the heathen.
It is a historical fact that the Roman Catholic Church, has adopted the practices
of various ‘Religions’, in order to absorb them into their church and make them ‘Christian’.
Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen,
and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
There are many such things but these few examples will have to suffice for now.
Should we put ourselves into a position where others can find fault with our conduct,
and therefore cause the name of Christ to be blasphemed?
The answer is NO, let no man judge you, rather be a bright shining light
in a world that is rapidly being overcome by gross darkness.
Rather than being judged, let your light expose and condemn the works of our adversary,
who has already been judged.
The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.
He is the only way of escape.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
