Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:
Obey my voice!
I Peter 1:16 ... Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
FIRST PART A: Evidence ... The law (commandments of God) is mandatory for salvation.
Compare the harmony of the coming of Jesus to the intent of the law in the new covenant:
Mark 2:17, I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
I Timothy 1:9, Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for sinners.
Jesus specifically said He came not for the righteous but for the sinners.
Paul specifically said the law is not made for the righteous but for the sinners.
FIRST PART B: Additional Evidence ... Our personal cross (the tree) is mandatory for salvation.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
To miss our personal cross is to miss our Savior for we would be unworthy. Following Jesus (obeying the word of God) with our cross is suffering with Him, mandatory to being a righteous or holy child of God. The worthy follow close behind Jesus with their cross as He leads them through the purifying perfecting fires (the law) of holiness, directly into the kingdom of God and His righteousness (holiness). Call this what you please but this too is the law of God!
Do this and live, don't do this and die! Not only is this a law but a law which encompasses the entire covenant and was spoken by Jesus Christ, Himself, in the Gospels ... SIX TIMES!
Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul declare the worldly churches are teaching in err.
Few are the holy or righteous and as few realize rejecting our cross is rejecting holiness, righteousness and eternal life. Giving thought, one would know 'holy' Jesus would lead His 'unholy' sheep directly into holiness, but we do not give thought to such when we foolishly believe we obtained it all in five minutes, obtained it all without our cross, without sanctification, without true holy faith, without righteousness, without holiness, and without our HOLY SAVIOR! I Peter 2:3 ... As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye my grow there:
Our Cross is the Law.
The Law is our Cross.
There's no difference between fulfilling the law or completing the work of our cross.

SECOND PART: God gives no spirit to unholy natural man!
We have also been taught that it is the Holy Spirit who teaches the Holy Word of God, this is not true either, consider the following statement of Jesus;
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
His sheep are not the righteous but the unrighteous or unholy sinners and they cannot have things that are holy, other than their one holy Shepherd or Mediator (a mediator is a lawful go-between for two parties, in this case holy vs. unholy), Jesus Christ in the flesh for the flesh as the holy Word/law of God. Jesus, as the Shepherd, speaks only to His sheep, those who bear their cross (obey), those under the law, those who have not yet received faith, thus not yet brought to Christ. Only the obedient or holy are given the Holy Spirit when holy faith comes, then they walk by holy faith in the spirit. Miss the law, miss your cross, miss your cross, miss holy Jesus in spirit, love and power.
In addition, His sheep who hear their Shepherd are exclusive by following Him into holiness, then I ask, what spirit are the unworthy multitudes who missed their cross receiving? Luke 21:8, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ: and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
BEWARE! The 'for many shall come in my name,' are evil spirits (Luke 7:21)! These unholy or unclean spirits disguise themselves as the Holy Spirit. If you are unholy and received a spirit you believed to be the Holy Spirit, by the Holy Word of God you have received an unclean spirit.
God gives no spirit to unholy natural man!
Sanctify Yourselves therefore,
and Be Ye Holy!
It is total unbelief and ignorance of God's word for unholy natural man to believe he can have the Holy Spirit of God. Claiming you have received the Holy Spirit is openly stating you have lawfully fulfilled the law of God and have sanctified yourself and you are now biblically holy ... key word here, 'yourself.'
I Corinthians 3:14, Butthe natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Romans 8:10, And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness (holy).
If you are unholy and you believe you have the Holy Spirit, you are deceived!
What you have is an unclean, or unholy, or evil spirit!
EZEKIEL 22:26, Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean.
Man teaches man untruths! Only the holy may partake in things that are holy! Nothing angers God more than man believing man over His Word! Our authority is either the Holy Word of God or mans unholy word.
If you have a spirit and it does not comply with these laws of God, you were deceived, and you are not a child of God but a child of perdition and unsuitable for salvation, therefore, you would be rejected here on earth by Jesus, (for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able).
The Evidence of Belief is Obedience!
The Evidence of Obedience is Holiness!
Galatians 1:11-12, But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions.
THIRD PART: UNHOLY UNAUTHORIZED AUTHORITY BY COVENANT
The following third part is Scriptural evidence the unholy are not authorized by the law of God to as much as pray in the public, let alone preach and teach, therefore, they do not represent the Holy Word of God. These are workers of iniquity, antichrist, false prophets, as clearly defined in the Holy Word of God. They carry only unclean spirits.
THIS IS A COMMANDMENT OF GOD TO THE SINNER, THE UNHOLY, THE UNRIGHTEOUS!
DO NOT PRAY IN THE PUBLIC!
Matthew 6:5-8, And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Due to the commandments of man, little thought is ever given to such a mighty and direct commandment from God. The Holy Word of God clearly states not only should we enter into our closet but we must close the door behind us. It's obvious Jesus does not want who He is speaking to, to pray in the public. So the question is exactly ... who is this Scripture intended for?
The answer as to who Jesus was speaking to
is noted in these two previously used scriptures:
Compare the coming of Jesus to the law made in the New Covenant:
They that are whole (holy) have no need of the physician, but they that are sick (unholy):
I came not to call the righteous (holy), but sinners to repentance (unholy). - Jesus Christ
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for sinners. - Apostle Paul
The law is not made for a righteous man(holy), but for the sinner(unholy)!
Both Jesus Christ and the Holy Word of God/law are one and the same and both are meant entirely for the unholy sinner or babes in Christ or the penitent. Before holy faith comes all of God's people live under the law with their sins held in remission through obedience to God's word, and they do not pray in the public or they would be disobedient. FLESHLY FAITHLESS PUBLIC PRAYERS ARE GODLESS PRAYERS! When sinners pray in the public this is disobedience to God's Holy Word and God will have nothing to do with them until the Day of Judgment. The unholy can only lead the unholy to hell.
THIS IS A COMMANDMENT OF GOD TO THE SINNER, TO THE UNHOLY;
DO NOT PRAY IN THE PUBLIC!
ENTER INTO YOUR CLOSET AND CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU!
Faith does not come by prayer and we are not sanctified or justified by prayer. For the unholy sinner prayer is far less important than belief and obedience to God's Holy Word, and it can and will in itself destroy salvation. We are converted, sanctified, from flesh to spiritual only through and by our obedience to God's Holy Word/law.
Jesus Christ, in the flesh for the flesh as the Holy Word of God.
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Every Word in the Bible is Directed to the Unholy / Unrighteous / Sinner
Why does man reject holiness? Fear, unbelief and an easy way.
First there was the Pharisee, then the Papacy, and now what you and I see.
Therefore the ungodly (never baptized) shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners (unholy) in the congregation of the righteous (holy).
Today sinners (unholy) have replaced the congregation of the righteous (holy).
Worldly Church Spirit of Antichrist
I John 4:2-3, Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh as(the Word/law) is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (the Word/law) is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
