    The Least And The Greatest In The Kingdom Of Heaven!

    Yeshua's own words...

    Matthew 5:18-19
    18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    Practice and Teach the commands if you want to be great. Ignore them or set them aside if you do not. The Raven has spaken.

    • JT: Do you and your household keep all 613 commandments of the OT Law and teach others to do the same? What about diet? What about garments? How about burnt offerings?

      • The Raven tries his best, though he is but flesh, blood, bones, feathers, and spirit to keep the commands Yeshua directed believers to keep until everything is accomplished. Study his teachings and the teachings of the Apostles and you will see what was directed to new covenant believers. A good start would be the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, Baptism, the Epistles, Plus the new command to love one another. if you can show Raven any of the 10 that Yeshua or the Apostles taught believers not to keep then Raven will stand down. If you cannot then Raven will tell the world it must obey for he does not want to be only a sparrow in the Kingdom of Heaven though it does say His eye is on the sparrow. I thank you for your concern about the Raven and his nest. Now go and sin no more (break not G-d's commands) such as Idolatry, Making Idols, Misuse of the Lord's Name, Keep the Sabbath Holy, Honoring Parents, No Murder, No Adultery, No Stealing, No False Testimony, No Coveting. The Holy Spirit will guide you.

        Matthew 28:19-20
        19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

        In summary, Raven believes research is struggling with salvation by faith alone versus holiness and sanctification. Notice the specific words of Yeshua, "baptizing them .... and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Yes my friend, there are commands the Christian is to obey and to teach to obey. Which ones? Now that is the debate which has been going on for 2,000 plus years. But research4insight should be able to take the suggestions above on where to start and figure it out, he is a smart dude, a little controlling and head strong with a desire to always be right, but still a smart enough dude to know when there is more to learn and understand. The Raven has spaken.
