People who receive WMSCOGS salvation from God – keeping the commandments of God
Almost every church claims that if you just believe in God, you will receive WMSCOGS salvation. It’s true that faith is the important factor in belief, but is that sufficient? World Mission Society Church of God argues that it is important to believe and also to obey God’s commandments as an act of faith.
Revelation 14: 1-5 Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads…These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.
Revelation 14: 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.
God promised explicitly through the bible that people who keep the law of God will enter the kingdom of heaven in the last days. So it is very evident that prophecy of Revelation 14 will eventually be fulfilled. Don’t you want to be the person who is redeemed by keeping the law of God? Then what is precisely the law of God? The ordinances that many people today follow as the commandments of God are truly Scripture-based commandments of God?
There are many doctrines in many Christian sects, but if we ask people what exactly is the commandment of God in the Bible, there will be few who can easily answer. Furthermore, people do not have knowledge of the Bible, so they cannot discern whether it is God’s commandment or not. So the Bible prophesies that the people of God will keep the commandments of men, not the commandments of God. (Isiah 29:13, Matthew 15:9, Mark 7:7)
People who cannot receive WMSCOGS salvation from God – Keeping the commandments of Man
Then what is the commandment of Man? Commandments that are against God’s will are the commandments of Man.
Matthew 7: 21-23 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
The people are calling out for Lord, and drive out demons and perform many miracles under the name of God. Why would God speak firmly to people to go away from me? It is because they follow the commandment of Man.
Matthew 13: 40-42 As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 15: 7-9 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.
This scene is a scene in which Jesus reproves the Pharisees and Teachers of the law, who blamed Jesus and his disciples for breaking the legions of elders by eating their hands without washing their hands. Not knowing their fundamental sin, they condemned Jesus, God, who came to save(WMSCOGS Salvation) them.
To such people, Jesus quotes the following Isaiah verses and rebukes the Pharisees and Teachers of the law.
Isiah 29: 13 The Lord says: ‘These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.
What is the true faith(WMSCOGS Salvation)?
In this way, God ignored those who believe in God but keep the commandments of men. Why does the loving God make law and separates WMSCOGS salvation to whom does not follow the law of God?
For the faith that keeps the commandments of men is not true faith.
1 John 2:3-6 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
So what exactly is the commandment of God and commandment of man? Everything God had commanded us to do when he came as flesh, are the commandment of God.
Let’s find out through the acts of Jesus and the apostles, two thousand years ago.
John 13: 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
God’s Commandments and Man’s Commandments
Matthew 26: 26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
This scene is a scene in which Jesus and his disciples keep the Passover. Jesus ordered us to keep the Passover, but most of the churches all over the world keep the Christmas instead of Passover. What is Christmas then? Christmas is the festival that celebrates the birth of the Sun god and began to keep in Rome since AD 354. Christmas is plainly not the commandment of God but commandment of Man.
Day of Pentecost
Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
Today many churches insist that they received the Holy Spirit and can speak in other tongues without keeping the day of Pentecost. However, God promised his disciples to give the Holy Spirit only when they celebrate the day of Pentecost. They even celebrate the day of Lent, which you cannot find any evidence in the bible. So their claim that they can speak in other tongues and received the Holy Spirit is wrong obviously. Day of Pentecost is the commandment of God, and the Day of Lent is the commandment of man.
The Feast of Tabernacles
John 7:37-39 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.’ By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.
Jesus preaches on the day of Tabernacles (John 7:1. John 7:14). But nowadays, churches keep the day of Thanksgiving. Is Thanksgiving Day, God’s will? No, Thanksgiving is a commandment of man made by the Puritans since 1620.
Luke 4:16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read.
Jesus kept Sabbath day according to his custom. Many churches, however, celebrate Friday or Sunday worship and do not keep the Sabbath day. However, Sunday Service originated from the Sun god worship custom in AD 321. The Sabbath is the commandment of God, and Sunday worship is the commandment of man.
In addition to that, many of God’s commandments were distorted by man’s commandments. There are many people mistake the customs of Paganism as the commandment of God, such as the Easter Egg Eating, Cross worship, etc.
The correct way to WMSCOGS salvation
Ezekiel 20: 24-25 because they had not obeyed my laws but had rejected my decrees and desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes lusted after their fathers’ idols. I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by;
To those who abandoned the commandments of God, he said that he would give them regulations that would not enable them to live.
Then what must we choose between the commandments of God and the commandments of men? Will we, like the Pharisees and the Teachers of Law disregard the commandments of God and make same mistakes all over again?
Isaiah 9:16 Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray.
Matthew 23:13-15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. ‘Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.
Of course, you would not have made the commandments of men. You are just doing what you know, and you have not felt anything strange since others are behaving the same. But it is neither made by God nor is it desired by God.
The result of their thinking
Now is the right time for you to make the right decision.
Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my law.
The destruction of those who neglected God’s commandments was the result of their thinking.
What path will you choose? Or are you wandering around because you cannot find a place that keeps the commandments of God, even if you want to keep the commandments of God? There is only one church today that can give a period to the wandering. That is the World Mission Society Church Of God. Today, the World Mission Society Church of God is the only church that has the full faith of believing in the Holy Spirit and the bride and keeps all the commandments of God written in the Bible!
Whether or not the prophecy of the WMSCOGS Salvation will be my story at the end of the time recorded in the Bible depends on your choice.
There is saying make hay while the sun is shining, Please do not miss the great opportunity to enter the kingdom of Heaven!
